Snow Cream

In North Texas we usually don’t get much snow.  We usually get ice which is no fun!  Today we got tons of good, powder snow.

We decide to try and make Snow Ice Cream.  We set a large bowl out on the patio table and let snow accumulate.  After the bowl was full, we brought it in.  We made several different flavors.

Good Morning Sunshine!

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!

Progessence Plus

Meet one of my best friends…

Progessence Plus

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.

Progessence™ Plus serum is a pure, harmonizing serum that is designed specifically for women. Along with wild yam and vitamin E, Progessence Plus is formulated with Frankincense, Bergamot, and Peppermint essential oils for optimal results.

Directions: Apply 2–4 drops 2 times daily on neck area. For added effect, apply 1–2 drops along forearms 2 times daily.

Thyme to get Slique

**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.

Citrus Water Slique Essence

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.

If you want to order, go to beta.youngliving.com and my # is 1483642.  I would love to answer any questions you have.

 

Oily Dog

Everyday is National Dog Day in our home!  We have the most loved, spoiled rotten, 90lb lap dog.  He really is the best dog though.  He lets our children climb all over him.

Oily Dog

I love him so much I even share my Young Living Essential Oils with him.  That’s right even our dog is Oily!

When I use oils he will follow me with his nose in my hand.  He loves his oils.

An Oil A Day Keeps the Vet Away

When Champ had a wound under his eye I applied Frankinsence and Lavender and then applied a warm compress.

When it is storming outside I apply Peace & Calming right behind his ears and lays down and goes to sleep.

When he has gas I rub peppermint or DiGize on his stomach.  He is a Boxer, this is often!

I spray his bed down with a Purification spray that you can find here.  I also spray this on him when we he is outside longer than just going to the bathroom.

 

So your Premium Starter Kit is great for your WHOLE Family, even the fur-babies!

Back to School EO’s

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.
