Oils for the Win: Lemon

Sometimes there’s a practical, everyday oily victory that’s just too good not to share. And today that winning oil is Lemon. Lemon is a must-have for its fresh scent, citrus flavor and (drumroll…) natural cleaning power. Plus, at $10.50, it’s a budget-friendly oil to have in your everyday arsenal.

We’ve talked about this oil a lot. It’s in the Premium Starter Kit. Plus, you can use it to boost sparkle in your dishwasher, get sticky stuff off of most anything and you can add it to Thieves Household Cleaner to create a streak-free glass cleaner.

Today, we’ve got an awesome before and after that gives you yet another reason to reach for Lemon: minimizing wood scratches.

  How-To:  Just add 4-5 drops of Lemon Oil and spread over scratches with the help of a bit of olive oil. Stand back and viola!

How-To: Just add 4-5 drops of Lemon Oil and spread over scratches with the help of a bit of olive oil. Stand back and viola!

Note: Essential oils aren’t slippery when used alone, but with the addition of olive oil the area will be damp for an hour or so.

Citrus Fresh: The Name Says It All!

Have you heard about the all-new Premium Starter Kit? Not only do you now get the Desert Mist Diffuser and Thieves Household Cleaner sample, the updated collection includes two new oils: Citrus Fresh and Raven. Today, Jaynelle breaks down the first of the new additions, Citrus Fresh. Stay tuned next week as we take a deep dive into Raven.

Citrus Fresh: A Blend as Uplifting as it Sounds 

This sunny, fresh oil combines Orange, Tangerine, Grapefruit, Lemon, and Mandarin oils with a hint of Spearmint. Citrus Fresh™ Essential Oil is a custom Young Living blend that offers an uplifting, refreshing aroma that you can diffuse to transform home, work, and classroom spaces.

 Citrus Fresh is now featured in the Premium Starter Kit! What an uplifting addition:)

Citrus Fresh is now featured in the Premium Starter Kit! What an uplifting addition:)

Citrus Fresh Pro Tips

Citrus Fresh oil is a perfect for...

  • replacing chemical-based home fragrances—just combine a few drops with water in a spray bottle and spritz throughout rooms and closets and over linens. You’ll enjoy the uplifting citrusy scent every time you make the bed or open a closet door.
  • a DIY cologne or perfume. Dilute with coconut oil and use for spring and summer. Plus, using Citrus Fresh topically comes with the bonus benefit of the citrus oils working together to tone and smooth the appearance of skin. Translation: a little extra citrus boost to your day. 

When you hear Citrus Fresh think...

  • Mental Clarity
  • Energizing
  • Purifying

Check out the rest of the Premium Starter oils here! It's one of the best way to start using oils in  your everyday life. And, (yay!), you'll get a wholesale discount for future purchases. 

Deep Dive: Sulfurzyme Supplements

We thought we’d follow up our mini NingXia Red series with a deep dive into another antioxidant-rich supplement, Sulfurzyme. Jaynelle Leek-Binns recently broke down the whats and whys of this daily supplement for our team and the info was too good not to share! Enjoy:)

 Support everything from skin health to your immune system with this must-have daily supplement! 

Support everything from skin health to your immune system with this must-have daily supplement! 

Why Do We Need Dietary Sulfur?

Our bodies need a naturally occurring organic form of dietary sulfur (MSM) to maintain optimal health. Yep, sure does! Biologically, sulfur is one of the most important nutrients (4th most plentiful found in the body), and we need it to maintain youth, energy and much more.

As we get older, our cells become rigid, we get stiff joints and our energy starts to decline. Although sulfur is found naturally (in small amounts) in a lot of foods, it is destroyed in the cooking/heating process. If we are not getting enough sulfur in our foods, then it is time to supplement!

What is in Sulfurzyme Capsules?

MSM (methylsulfonylmrthane) aka sulfa

Supports the immune system, liver and proper circulation. It also helps to rid your body of free radicals. Think of MSM as like little ninjas cleaning up your body.

Need to Know: Sulfur… No, not the same as Sulfa pharmaceuticals. Sulfur, MSM or methylsulfonylmrthane is totally different. I am allergic to Sulfa drugs and have no problem with Sulfurzyme.

Wolfberries

The wolfberries (like we have in our Ningxia Red) also contains minerals and coenzymes that help our bodies metabolize the sulfur. This is important because you want your body to be able to absorb the MSM and put it to use.

Pro Tip: If you want to optimize the absorption of your sulfurzyme, take it with Ningxia Red. You can even add it to your NR, throw a splash of lime (or lime vitality) in it and it will be a really yummy treat!

Main Uses for Sulfurzyme

This daily supplement…

  • Helps maintain the structure of proteins in the body (great for sensitive skin)
  • Supports the immune, liver, circulatory and gastrointestinal systems
  • Protects cells and cell membranes (keeps you youthful!)
  • Supports healthy skin (clear skin and wrinkles) and hair (thicker and fuller)
  • Activates/maintains enzymes in the body
  • Naturally increases energy

Hope you enjoyed learning about Sulfurzyme! How many of you are ready to add it to your daily routine now?! Please send any questions our way!

Savvy Minerals Hacks & Tips

Today we have more tips from Jaynelle! This time on Young Living’s new all-natural makeup line Savvy Minerals. Enjoy:)

I am loving the new Savvy Minerals Makeup by Young Living! Each product is designed to let your true beauty shine without an artificial appearance. It is the perfect missing puzzle piece for a non-toxic, healthy lifestyle.

So, of course, no oily hacks series would be complete without tips for this fantastic line. So, I present my (drumroll) …

Top 10 Savvy Minerals Hacks

SavvyMineralsHacks.jpg

1. Create a Cream Foundation

Grab your favorite moisturizer and add minerals to it for an easy to apply cream foundation or concealer. You can even make a cream blush if you want!

2. Stretch Your Mascara

Mascara drying out? Spray your wand with the Misting Spray and get weeks more use out of it.

3. Easy Facial Cleansing

Feeling tired at the end of the day? Grab a YL Seedlings baby wipe to remove your makeup and cleanse your face.

4. Easy Brush Cleansing

Seedlings baby wipes are awesome at cleaning makeup brushes.

5. Unexpected Eye Primer

Apply a thin layer of Lavender Lip Balm on your eyelid as primer before applying eyeshadow for all-day staying power.

6. Stretch Your Eyeshadow

When applying your eyeliner, only clean your brush every other day and get multiple uses from it. Just spritz with misting spray on the second day and apply with the leftover minerals. Great for those mornings you are on the move!

7. Get Creative

Don’t worry about what the label says on your makeup – foundation can be bronzer, blush can be eyeshadow and eyeliner can be brow filler! Mix it up and play with the colors, they are all natural minerals and can be used for anything. Even try tinting your lips with some blush and lip balm OR my mom’s favorite, tint your cheeks with lipstick for a “dewy” glow – you can thank me later!

8. Make a Holiday Statement

Want a festive holiday look? Use some of the fun Savvy colors and shimmer as eyeliner for a dramatic look that everyone will notice.

9. Don’t Blow It

When using any mineral makeup, you never want to blow on the brush after you apply minerals to the brush, it can create a breeding ground for bacteria over time.

10. Makeup Ordering 101

I don’t like to run out of makeup and so I ALWAYS make sure I have a backup of whatever my staple products are. As soon as I finish a product, I grab my backup and then order a new backup. This also helps when things might go out of stock.  

And, while we’re on purchasing, also make sure you are getting YLs wholesale pricing! What woman wouldn’t want to get their makeup at a 24% discount every time they purchase?!

Are we missing any big Savvy Hacks? If so, be kind and share with us! Thanks:)

Did you know that you could use Young Living Lavender Lip Balm 3 different ways in your diaper bag?! Check out all of our Double Duty Products! 

1. Seedlings Wipes

Clean Savvy Mineral makeup brushes. Quickly remove makeup at night and cleanse your skin.

2. AlkaLime Powder

Make a paste with water and apply to skin for soothing benefits.

3. Mineral Essence

Apply topically to sooth skin.

Pro Tip: Can apply behind the knees(where the skin is thin) at night for kids who won’t take it.

4. Lavaderm/Misting Spray

Comb through to detangle hair. Use Lavaderm instead of Misting Spray with Savvy Minerals

5. Lavender Lotion

Use just a dab as leave in conditioner.

6. Lavender Lip Balm

Keep in your diaper bag for:

  • diaper changings
  • sun exposure
  • aid the skin after a fall on the playground

7. Mirah Shave Oil/Seedlings Baby Oil

Add to your cosmetic bag for:

  • deep conditioner for hair
  • eye makeup remover
  • cuticle oil
  • light face primer before makeup
  • razor bumps/burns

8. Rose Ointment

Keep in your bathroom for:

  • smooth lips
  • dry winter noses
  • flyaway hairs and frizz

9. ClaraDerm

Facial moisturizer and primer for Savvy Minerals makeup.

10. Art Toner

Spray on hair for frizz control and beautiful shine.

11. Tender Tush

Soothe stretch marks and help to tighten skin.

12. Animal Scents Ointment/Rose Ointment

Use these versatile ointments in two ways:

  • Coat inside your nose with q tip to help protect from toxins and outdoor exposure.
  • Apply to the feet and elbows at nighttime for beautiful skin in the morning

13. Thieves Dishwasher Detergent

 Use as a scouring scrub for pots, pans, grout, sink or anything stubborn.

Pro Tip: Add a drop of lemon or orange oil for an extra punch!

14. Thieves Dentarome Plus Toothpaste

Stay fresh & clean, use as a deodorant.

15. Thieves Hand Purifier

Use to remove permanent marker and pen off of surfaces. Use to wipe down tech devices and sunglasses.

16. Thieves Household Cleaner

Achieve a deeper clean by using in carpet-cleaning vacuums - I have even seen it remove pink nail polish from carpet! Also use as stain remover for clothes or a boost in your automatic dishwasher.

Pro Tip: Use to soak and clean jewelry, but not recommended for pearls. Add baking soda for an extra punch.

17. Thieves Mouthwash

Soak oral night guard or retainer for cleansing.

18. Thieves & Lavender Foaming hand soap

 Use as facial wash.

Pro Tip: Thieves can be great for stubborn skin.

19. Thieves Dish Soap

 Clean glass stovetop (just a dab). It is the only thing that works on mine! Be sure to make your product last longer by dispensing in a foaming pump.

20 Thieves Spray

Use under your arms on hot days and inside your shoes. Keep in your bag as an "on the go" spot remover.

That’s something every care taker can get behind.  

Line currently includes:

  • Body Wash & Shampoo
  • Body Lotion
