In November I bought myself some Young Living products that I had not tried with my Essential Rewards points. One of them was the Morning Start Bath & Shower Gel. It gets your day started right with an invigorating blend of the essential oils added to naturally cleansing and moisturizing botanicals. It has Lemongrass, Rosemary, Juniper, and Peppermint oil in it. It is non-toxic and free from chemicals & synthetic preservatives. I need all the help I can get in the mornings!
Meet one of my best friends…
I love this girl! She makes me a nicer person. She makes my monthly visit from Aunt Flo much more tolerable.
Warning: Men go ahead and scroll down to the next post.
Women, listen up!
My cycle was insane for YEARS!!!!!! It was long and very heavy. I would have cramps so bad that I would spend the first 2 days in bed with what used to be my best friend the heating pad. I haven’t needed a heating pad since I met this girl. She seriously has changed my life.

**These are my individual results and my testimonies. Everyone is different and may have different results depending on several different factors such as diet, exercise, health, etc… There is No Magic Pill or formula that will work for everyone. I think it is very important to know your body. Do research on any product you consider using.
I am only sharing because when I wanted to start using these products I wanted to read personal testimonies, so hopefully this will be helpful information for someone, if not it is good accountability for me to put it out on the internet so I will strive to meet my goals.
I have been making several changes over the last 2 years for the health of my family and decided that on January 1st it was time to work really hard at shedding my extra weight. Due to more natural changes that I have been slowly making this decision was much easier, but still a challenge.
I decided that I was going to cut out Sugar and Gluten as much as possible. I have been eating lean meats, fruits and vegetables, drinking tons of water with Lemon oil or Slique oil.
Why I chose Young Living to help me attain my weight management goals…
Today’s lifestyles don’t always create optimal conditions for physical wellness or weight management. Poor diet, lack of exercise and environmental toxins can leave us unbalanced and low on energy. Every product that Young Living creates supports your whole body. They provide targeted solutions to restore balance. Not only are these products for weight management but so much more. Even if you don’t need to loose weight these products are still great for your health. If you do want to loose weight, you will not be jeopardizing your health while doing it. I trust Young Living! I have done my research and they have nothing to hide.
What a typical day looks like for me…
Breakfast: NingXia Red (1 oz.), water with lemon, Super C, Super B, Master Formula Hers and a healthy breakfast or a Balance Complete meal replacement.
Lunch: Water, healthy lunch or Balance Complete meal replacement (if I didn’t have it for breakfast), Essentialzymes-4
Snack: nuts, noosa yogurt or a slique bar
45 minutes before dinner I take 1 pack of Slique Slim Caps
Dinner: Water, Healthy dinner (meat, fruits and veggies), Essentialzymes-4
If I get a little hungry before bed I drink Slique Tea or more NingXia Red (1 oz.)
Like I said this is not a formula. Each day looks different. I don’t think I would be successful on a program that looked the same each day. I like variety.
I only weigh on Sundays. If you weigh everyday you will see the up and down which might help you but I decided I just wanted to see the results after each week.
Results as of 1/18/15…
I feel great! I have more energy. I am more productive. I have lost 9 lbs!!
I will post more along the journey. I would love to hear from you if you have ever tried any of the Slique products! I would also love to hear any tips that work for you.

We get out of our health what we put into it.
Did you know YL was the first company to add essential oils to their supplements?
Big brand supplements are not good nutrition. They are lab created, not natural. They only mimic a natural supplement.
What makes our body a host for disease? Being acidic. Pathogens love acidic environment…acid leads to inflammation…which leads to disease. Sugar is a main cause of being acidic.
Young Living’s age-specific nutrition products come packed with beneficial vitamins, minerals and antioxidants for every stage in life.
Lets start with my favorite way to keep my family healthy…
Wolfberry (are a great source of fiber & over 36,000 on the ORAC scale), Cherry (helps with joint discomfort), Plum (great source of fiber), Blueberries (2,400 on the ORAC scale)
Now let’s talk about the importance of Enzymes.
Without enzymes things would not decompose (dead animals, leaves turning brown and breaking down, etc). Enzymes are the catalyst that create many essential biochemical reactions that don’t happen without them.
Three types of enzymes:
- Digestive (produces)
- Food (living food, not processed, raw)
- Metabolic (come from organs like the pancreas)
Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures over 120 degrees (from cooking, processes like pasteurization, microwaving, radiation (zaps enzymes to have longer shelf life). Carrots have more enzymes than any other food. Foods are made of chemical elements that need enzymes to break them down. Enzymes need vitamins and minerals to function. Enzymes unlock the benefits of vitamins, minerals and hormones to engage us in the body functions we need. Enzymes are specific in purpose.
Young Living offers several choices in enzymes:
On to Vitamins…
We need omega 3’s for our brain, heart, and liver. Fish oil is the same omega 3 in our brain. Gary combined former heart product into OmegaGize. Fish oil is unstable and needs to be refrigerated. It becomes rancid in only 40 mins in the stomach. Fish oil consumed on its own is deadly. If you consume it, you need a high fat soluble antioxidant with it.
What is different about fish oil from the health store and Young Living?
Once a bottle of fish oil is opened, it is becoming rancid. Young Living mixes fish oil with clove oil and vitamin E (over a million on the ORAC) immediately. Listeria (the bad bacteria) found in fish oil is killed with the clove oil. Added vitamin D (reduces cancer and cardiovascular risk) because we are chronically deficient in vit D. Females need 4000 IUs a day (our absorption is at a lower rate when we are over 40 and we need more). Contains roman chamomile which amplifies the absorption by 15%-16%. A third of the country are on statin drugs (Zocor, Lipitor) which gives you myopathy (breaks down muscle tissues like the heart) and depletes the CoQ10 of our heart (a key nutrient). OmegaGize contains the highest quality of CoQ10 on the market today to break down statins.
3 oils in OmegaGize: Clove (anti-everything; coagulant, protects against ulcers), Spearmint (increases metabolism, gall bladder stimulant), German Chamomile (antioxidant, promotes digestive, liver and gall bladder health
Check Yo Self…
Ha! I kid, I kid. This post is about attitudes. We all have them! Sometimes our children’s attitudes are a reflection of our own. Ouch!
I want to tackle those morning attitudes before they even start so they can be ready for a great school year. We will use Young Living Oils to help in any way they can.
Being organized and prepared is a key player in my happiness so I’m planning it out. Read this to get some ideas of what you need to have on your essential oil supply list.
My Plan of Action:
Night before –
*Take our vitamins (Super C, OmegaGize – Fish oil, MultiGreens, InnerDefense, Longevity, Life 5)
*Fill the kitchen diffuser the night before with a happy blend of Orange, Ylang Ylang & Lavender and have it ready to turn on as soon as I wake up to let the dog out. This is usually before the kids are awake.
*Fill the USB orb diffuser with water for the car ride to school. I’ll let them take turns picking which oil to use on the way to school.
*Have lunches and water bottles filled.
*Apply peppermint to wake up. Drink my MindWise, Ningxia Red with Lemon oil and have my quiet time! (check out Jesus Calling if you want to start a quiet time and don’t know where to start)
*Fill the upstairs diffuser with Citrus Fresh, Peppermint or my favorite diffusing blend of Lime, Lemon Myrtle and Peppermint.
*Wake up the kids.
*Everyone get ready.
*Eat breakfast or drink smoothie!
*Apply Thieves to the bottom of all of our feet. Put shoes on and go.
Have you started your Back to School shopping? I love new School Supplies.
Don’t forget to add Essential Oils to the supply list for a healthy, happy school year!
Quick Testimony: This past school year my kids did not miss school for being sick. Instead we took 2 days off to go to Disney World. This is huge!!! The year before my son missed so much school we got one of those nasty letters telling us he couldn’t miss anymore. He was sooooo sick, multiple times. This is why I am passionate about sharing Young Living Essential Oils with others. They have been such a huge change in our family wellness.

My morning routine used to be coffee, but I have traded that in for NingXia Red, MindWise and a Super C. When I’m dragging I add a NingXia Nitro. I have noticed that this last longer and gives me clarity that I need for the day. When my allergies flair up I add a second NingXia Red later in the day. I also love to add oils to this! This is where it gets fun. I feel like a bar tender of essential oils!
MindWise is a new product that was introduced at Young Living Convention and I am very excited about the lives that will be helped with this. It even tastes good!
Description (from website): MindWise™ combines exotic sacha inchi nut oil with a proprietary MindWise oil blend for a unique, normal brain function-supporting supplement.* Harvested from the Peruvian Amazon, sacha inchi nuts are cold pressed to create a vegetarian oil with a high proportion of unsaturated fatty acids and an unmatched percentage of desirable omega-3 fatty acids (α-Linolenic acid). Medium chain triglycerides (MCT) and pure essential oils are added to complete the MindWise oil blend.
The proprietary Memory blend features ALCAR, GPC, and bio-identical CoQ10, ingredients that have been studied for their beneficial health properties. Generous amounts of vitamin D3 and a unique delivery method create a premium supplement that supports normal memory function and overall cognitive health.*.
