What’s in the Box?? Savvy Minerals Premium Starter Kit Opening

I was sooo excited to get my Savvy Minerals Premium Starter Kit in the mail I just had to open it with all of you!! Here is a quick preview of all the goodies in the box!!

I’m So Savvy Excited!

Today is the day!! Whoot! Whoot! My Savvy Minerals Premium Starter Kit will be here soon!! I just checked my tracking number and it said it will be here by 8pm tonight! (What’s nice in my small town is that everything is usually here by noon!) I can not wait!

I love makeup, I love that it can take your level from ‘blah’ to ‘Oh, Yeah!’ in two point two seconds. My biggest thing is that I don’t like it when it ‘looks’ like I have makeup on. I like the ‘natural glow’ look. This is a huge reason I am so ready to try Young Livings Savvy Minerals.

Since I have never really used mineral makeups before I have solicited the help of a friend of mine who is a complete makeup guru. She actually has a room in her home dedicated to makeup! (It’s really fun, whenever we have an event in our town a bunch of us go to her house so she can do our makeup!) Any who, I approached her and asked if she could teach me her ways and she said yes!

So the plan is with my friends help I will create videos to help you become successful with your Young Livings Savvy Minerals journey. To grow together we must learn together. So check back soon for Savvy Minerals Application 101!

Cheers!

DiGize the Amazing Digestive Support Essential Oil

We have all heard the saying, “Oh, Mylanta!” Well it’s Mylanta no more! It’s now, “Oh, MyDiGize!” DiGize and DiGize Vitality are an amazing proprietary essential oil blend by Young Living and it will support tummy health like no other. Use these oils to help you enjoy each and every meal and is a great addition to your wellness regimen.

DiGize is a of blend Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Lemongrass, Anise, and Patchouli essential oils. These oils all pack a huge punch for calming tummy issues and in some cultures munching on fennel seeds after meals is even a common practice! The use of this potent plant even dates back to ancient Egypt.

Quickly I would like to clarity the difference between DiGize and DiGize Vitality. Whenever the term Vitality is used in the name of a Young Livings essential oils it means the the oil is labeled to be used for internal consumption. With that being said though, the oil in DiGize non Vitality is the exact same oil that is in DiGize Vitality. The FDA has regulations though that require items that are used for internal consumption to be labeled differently. So when I am talk about using DiGize internally, I am talking about DiGize Vitality and when I talk about using it aromatically or topically, I am talking about DiGize.

My whole family loves DiGize and it is one of the essential oils that go with me wherever I go. When we experience tummy discomfort DiGize is our first choice. We place 1-2 drops in our belly button and within minutes discomforts go away.

The versatility of DiGize Vitality oil means that you can take it in a gel capsule, mix it with water and Peppermint Vitality for a rejuvenating infused water, or combine it with honey for a sweet treat. This oil blend also includes the naturally occurring constituents menthol, citrol, and zingiberene.

Here are some great ways to add DiGize or DiGize Vitality to your daily routine.

1. To relieve immediate stomach discomfort: Dilute one part DiGize and one part carrier oil. Then, apply several drops (2-4) on ears, wrists, neck, forehead, temples, or feet. You can also add 1-2 drops directly in your belly button.

DiGize can be directly added to your stomach when feeling symptoms from constipation, gas, diarrhea, or bloating.  It is believed that rubbing DiGize on your stomach in a clockwise motion will get things moving and in a counterclockwise motion will it slow things down.

2. Support Your Immune System: When traveling, use DiGize Vitality as a dietary supplement. Add 2-3 drops to your drinking water or honey.  Always use a glass or stainless steal cup when adding to water.

3. Indigestion:DiGize Vitality has an antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic quality that combats indigestion.  Take 5-6 drops in an empty gel capsule after meals or add to your drinking water. When experiencing symptoms related to indigestion, heartburn or bloating apply 1-2 drops under your tongue or apply directly to your abdomen.

4. Eliminate Candida or Parasites:DiGize Vitality can be helpful to eliminate parasites for pets and people. When combating digestive candida or parasites, rub on the bottoms of your feet and take 5 drops orally in a capsule as needed.

5. Nausea:Take one capsule twice a day as needed to aid in symptoms of the stomach flu or food poisoning.  This works best if alternated with Thieves Essential Oil Blend.  Place one drop in your hand and rub behind your ears to assist with nausea or morning sickness.

So let this be the last of your tummy issues and try a natural plant based alternative. DiGize and DiGize Vitality are a must have in every home and purse! You can click on my picture to go directly to my personal Young Living page. Good bye tummy problems!

 

Cheers!

Our Most Precious Gift- Our Seedlings

As many of you know I am a mom. A mom of four boys no less! Being a mom is the most rewarding, challenging and down right hardest thing I have ever done. These little bundles of joy are our babies, our seedlings and we would do anything for them. When we bring them home for the first time we want to give them the best of everything; the purest, healthiest and cleanest of every product we expose them too. That is our goal. Then reality sets in and most of our preconceived notions go flying our the door.

Until know! The amazing Young Living brand that people know and have been using for years has expanded to include a “Seedlings” line meant for your sweet, sweet baby. You no longer have to worry about exposing your child to the chemicals found in most brand name baby wipes, diaper rash creams, lotions and more!!

Young Living’s Seedlings line offers expertly created, essential oil-infused baby products that have been safely diluted for babies’ sensitive skin. Free from harmful ingredients, the line’s gentle, plant-based formulas have been specially created to carefully comfort infants and give parents peace of mind.

So lets look real quick at what is really in a brand name “Simply Clean” baby wipes.

Water Helps remove impurities from skin
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract Aloe Vera
Caprylyl Glycol A skin conditioner and mild preservative
Malic Acid A pH adjuster
Sodium Benzoate Preservative used block bacteria inside the pack
Sodium Citrate A pH adjuster
Tocopheryl Acetate A synthetic Vitamin E oil.
Coco-Betaine A cleansing agent and is associated with irritation and allergic contact dermatitis.
Fragrance  Fragrances are mixtures of undisclosed ingredients and many people are allergic to them.  Fragrance mixes often contain diethyl phthalate, which is associated with hormone disruption. Fragrance mixes have been associated with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress, and potential effects on the reproductive system.
Polysorbate 20 It is an emulsifier that keeps ingredients from separating.  It is produced by using carcinogenic ethylene oxide, which may contaminate the final product with carcinogenic1,4-doxane.

Now after reading all that who wants to wipe their babies bum with them!!?? Not this girl! I am a big advocate of knowing what you are putting on your body and these ingredients do not sound like things I want to put on my body! Now let’s look at Young Living’s Seedlings Baby Wipes.35653949851_50f09f979a_z

Young Living Seedlings™ Baby Wipes are ultra-soft and comfortable. The soothing formula leaves skin moisturized, soft, and smooth while providing gentle and thorough cleansing without drying your infant’s delicate skin. With key ingredients are Apple fruit extract, Soapberry fruit extract, Aloe, Calendula extract, and Lavender essential oil, now that sounds better to me!

These gentle baby wipes can be used on any part of your infant’s skin. Soft, thick, and versatile, these wipes can handle a diaper change or a lunchtime cleanup. Vegan friendly, this mild and gentle formula contains cleansing botanicals and 100 percent pure essential oils and is specially formulated to minimize the risk of common allergic reactions.

Not only are these wipes amazing for your babies bum, they have numerous other uses as well! You can use them to remove your face makeup at the end of the day, they are great for wiping up sticky hands after meals and they can be used to replace your toxic dryer sheets!

To Fall in Love with Frank

We all go through a time in our lives when we fall in love. It might be knew love, it might be old love, it might be rekindled love. Well, I have a NEW love and his name is Frank! (Don’t tell my hubby!) Franks real name is Frankincense and let me tell you his story.

Frankincense essential oil (Boswellia carterii) is considered a holy oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years and was one of the gifts given to Christ at his birth. Frankincense is mentioned in the Ebers Papyrus, an ancient Egyptian scroll from approximately 1500 BCE, that documents its use. I just love the history of Frank, it truly warms my heart to know that that this oil was given to my Savior at his birth. Every time I diffuse Frank or use topically the sweet aroma grounds me to my God.
Frankincense is derived from the gummy sap that oozes out of the Boswellia trees, respectively, when their bark is cut. The leaking resin is allowed to harden and then scraped off the trunk in tear-shaped droplets; it may then be used in its dried form or steamed to yield essential oils. It is edible and often chewed like gum. It is also extremely fragrant, particularly when burned or diffused. 5324015063_905550e980_z
Frankincense essential oil  has a broad range of uses, from enhancing spiritual and meditative practice to use in beauty routines. Frankincense has an earthy, uplifting aroma that’s perfect for grounding and spiritual connectedness. Create a safe and comforting environment by diffusing this oil’s empowering aroma, particularly when you are seeking purpose or engaged in prayer or meditation. In addition to elevated spiritual experiences, Frankincense can help you maintain the appearance of radiant skin. Its ability to smooth the appearance of healthy skin explains why it is used in many natural beauty products.
I use Frank everyday on my face and love the results. I use a synergy  of Frank, Lavender and Copaiba essential oils in a roller ball with grape seed oil. (Recipe below) I also use Frank neat on my forehead each night. I apply one drop on my forehead and then gently rub it over my whole face. My skin has never felt or looked so good!! Also if feel a clogged pore coming on I put a dab of Frank on it and it keeps it from ever erupting! I Love Frank!5469204697_4237b7b092_z(1)
There are just so many great uses for Frank….. Invite elevated spiritual experiences every day by diffusing this oil in your home or office. Add Frankincense to your daytime lotion or night cream for a custom moisturizer that highlights your natural beauty. Incorporate Frankincense into your yoga ritual by diffusing this oil during your routine and following up with a post-practice massage. I also just love to use Frank as a personal scent! One drop Frank on my wrist with one drop Patchouli smells divine!
So don’t hold back any longer! If you have not started your romance with Frank, today is the day! Frank is also included in the Premium Starter Kit so you get to enjoy him right away when you become a Young Living member!!
