The majority of people floss after they brush their teeth. Recently, someone mentioned that it’s best to floss before brushing so that the debris caught between teeth can be loosened and carried away as we brush. It makes sense, when you think about it.
Unless your dentist advises otherwise, finishing your flossing, brushing, rinsing routine with an alcohol-free mouthwash is a good idea.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS,) is used in bubble baths, shampoos, liquid soaps and other products where a good lather is expected. It is also a common ingredient in toothpastes. People that experience frequent chapped lips, cold sores or other mouth and gum irritations may especially want to consider avoiding dental products that contain SLS.
Young Living has a line of dental care that includes alcohol free mouthwash/rinse, and SLS free toothpaste, not forgetting the floss that contains Thieves essential oil blend and peppermint essential oil, two layers of essential oils to further “protect and defend.”
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.

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.
Oftentimes, when purchasing essential oils, a person can never be 100% certain where the actual plant used to produce the oil originated. With Young Living Essential Oils, we have the assurance that we always know, without exception, where the plant originated. Young Living owns several farms around the world, and works in partnership with other farms that meet Young Living’s high standards. Do you know where your essential oil came from?
As we move into the cooler, and then colder months, it appears that a lot of advertising and media coverage focuses on the common cold and flu.
With that in mind, we are focused on regular hand washing, fist bumps instead of handshakes, and the regular use of our Young Living Thieves products. We use the Thieves essential oil in our diffuser, Thieves foaming hand soap, Thieves hand cleanser in our car, and overall, feel a lot better for doing so.
So, take a look at the Young Living Thieves range of products, and use them, and common sense, as we move through this part of the year. Any questions? Please feel free to contact us.
