Peppermint – The “Reviver.”

Already at day 4 of our “getting to know your starter kit challenge,” and so we take a look at Peppermint. While it has many uses, one of my favorites is to use it when driving, mostly if I am driving a few hours. I keep it close by, and if I feel myself getting drowsy, I simply remove the lid, and inhale it deeply. It always does the trick and I’m instantly revived. Let us know if you’re interested in Young Living Peppermint essential oil, we have all points access!

Historical Oil – Frankincense

It appears that people have been using certain essential oils for thousands of years, and today’s featured oil in ourĀ “getting to know your starter kit challenge” is none other than Frankincense.

Do you use Frankincense, and if so, how? I spent many years living under the hot and unforgiving Australian sun, and so I find it useful in helping deal with the results of that. One drop morning and night onto my “affected area” on my arm, it’s working wonders.

And know this, if you have not yet acquired a Young Living starter kit, let us know and we’ll be more than happy to hook you up.

Citrus Fresh

So let’s talk Citrus Fresh. All you need to do is look at this picture to see what it might be useful for. We always have a bottle of this in our home, and we get an extra one when the existing one gets below the halfway mark, we cannot do without it. Our favorite “use” is to use it in our diffuser and let the house fill with the nice citrus aroma, totally healthy.

The Swiss Army Knife

As many people already know, a Swiss Army knife has many attachments and many uses.

We view our Young Living Lavender essential oil as the “Swiss Army Knife” of all essential oils, without the attachments! It can be used for a variety of purposes but I think my favorite use is to put a couple of drops on each wrist at bedtime, I always seem to sleep better.
Another favorite is to add to the bath just before bedtime, inhale the Lavender aroma and let it work its magic on your skin.

NingXia Red

For the past several months I have been drinking NingXia Red. I fondly refer to it as my “wolf juice,” and usually drink 2oz’s per day, in the morning.

I have tried the bottles and the small 2oz packets, and to be honest, I prefer the 2oz packets. For me, they are more convenient, I can take them with me when I’m away from home, I don’t need to measure into a glass, I just rip open the top and drink from the packet.

If you haven’t tried NingXia Red yet, I encourage you to do so. It’s refreshing, and always puts some pep in my step.

Itchy Scalp

Someone asked a couple of days ago about a shampoo that might assist with easing an itchy scalp. Here is our suggestion. Use an organic shampoo of your choice, adding 10 drops of Lavender and 10 drops of Peppermint. Shake well before each use and leave shampoo in hair for the duration of your shower, rinse well.
