Each year during the month of June, Young Living Essential Oils hosts an International Convention, usually in Salt Lake City, Utah. Over the course of a week, many activities, excursions, and classes are offered, and enjoyed by thousands of people. And every year, sometime during the convention, Young Living announces brand new products, eagerly anticipated by everyone.
This year was no exception, and just a few days ago, a variety of new products were announced. We will cover them all during the next few days, and when you see any that interest you, let us know and we’ll hook you up.
This picture shows the entire range of new products for 2017, even a new diffuser.
One of the brand new Young Living products is Aminowise. It helps support muscles during and after exercise to fight fatigue and enhance recovery, reduces lactic acid formed by exercise, support hydration by replenishing important minerals, contains no added sugar or artificial sweeteners.
As far as the calendar is concerned, Summer is still a few days away. As far as the weather is concerned, Summer is already here, and has been for several weeks! In addition to the heat and humidity (depending on where you live), one of the biggest complaints we hear about is bugs, especially mosquitoes. One of the best known deterrents for bugs, no matter where you live in the world, is Citronella. It has other uses too, but take a look at these ideas for your 2017 Summer season, and of course, we always recommend Young Living Essential Oils, they’re a big part of our lives.
This arrived yesterday, so for the first time I had a chocolate protein shake for breakfast. 1 cup of milk, half a banana, 2 scoops of this = a TASTY shake!
How can it be THAT time of the week again? Time for yet another one of our “Summer Fun Series.” During this hot and sometimes balmy summer weather, who doesn’t enjoy a nice refreshing Margarita? This recipe has a slightly twist to it. Young Living’s Lime Vitality Oil is a perfect addition to give your Margarita an extra kick. Try it and let us know what you think.
Once in a while, our carpets need “freshening up,” so here is a great recipe.
Combine 12 drops of Young Living’s Lavender essential oil with 1 oz baking soda. Mix well and then sprinkle the mixture over carpets. Let sit for 15-20 minutes, then vacuum it up.
It also helps keep the vacuum bag and/or filter smelling fresh too.
Due to a recent family medical issue, we now know the importance of the essential oil blend Raven. Wanted to share this with everyone.
Raven is a blend of 5 different Young Living essential oils.
Ravensara helps restore proper respiratory function, nasal function and supports the sinuses. This oil is a cross between nutmeg and clove plants so it may support the adrenals.
Eucalyptus is a popular oil that has been used medicinally for ages to support the lungs and sinuses.
Wintergreen is warming. It contains methyl salicylate and has a cortisone-like effect that can help with soreness associated with everyday activities. May help support musculoskeletal system. It is also a good support for the lymphatic and respiratory systems.
Peppermint is soothing, cooling and supports the lungs and sinuses, can help encourage proper nasal function. Peppermint helps support the respiratory system (lungs and sinuses).
Lemon is high in d-limonene and is a great antioxidant. Lemon is immune supportive. It is also purifying and uplifting.
Raven is an essential oil blend that is very effective in a diffuser. We have also added Raven to our diffuser along with other essential oils such as Lavender and Rosemary for added support. It is also part of our homemade chest rub recipe. Mix Raven with Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, and organic coconut oil and apply to throat and chest.
As with any essential oils use caution when using on children but extra caution necessary in small children due to Wintergreen and Peppermint essential oils.
