Calming Evening Sleep Routines

Sleepy Routines.jpg

I find that what my body needs to get and stay asleep changes with the seasons. In the winter, I seem to respond best to deeper rooted plants and trees to quiet my mind and I think that just speaks to the coziness I crave during the cooler months. Don't be afraid to keep experimenting to find what works for you and be willing to change it up when you find that what you have been using for awhile doesn't work like it used to work. It's always worth a little trial and error... especially when it comes to getting good sleep. The difference in a wake up three times night and a sleep through until your alarm night is amazing. It really matters. ❤️🌱

What do you do before bed for a good night's sleep?

Make a Thieves Roller in Ten Seconds!

Thieves Oil w Roller Top.jpg

If you have a partially used bottle of Thieves that is 1/4 to 1/3 of the way full... it's the perfect time of year to fill it up with V-6 and put a roller fitment on top! 

Keep this around where you relax or get dressed and roll it over your chest and feet several times a day all fall and winter long. You'll stay healthier! ❤️🌱

PS - The roller fitments are Item #4578 from YL and are so handy! V-6 is Item #3031. It is our favorite carrier oil because it lasts forever, isn't greasy and the pump top makes it so easy to use to fill up bottles!

Using Oils to Care for House Plants

House Plants and Thieves.jpg

If you have houseplants... you can use oils to help take good care of them! I wipe down their stems and leaves once every two weeks with the same Thieves Cleaner I use for every other surface in our home and I mist the soil in their pots every week with diluted DiGize. Young Living uses DiGize on the soil at their farms to help it maintain a good pH balance. (So awesome, right?!) Being able to bring that same thoughtful care into our homes keeps our plants thriving! ❤️🌱

HOUSE PLANT SOIL MIST

15 to 20 drops DiGize
1 teaspoon Witch Hazel
Distilled Water

Add the oil and witch hazel to a two ounce misting bottle and fill it to the top with distilled water. Spray on the top of the soil in your pots once a week after watering. Double the recipe in a four ounce misting bottle of you have lots of houseplants and want to make it less often!

Inner Defense Supplement

InnerDefenseSupplement 9-13-18.jpg

Inner Defense capsules are free this month with ER and Quick Orders and they are powerhouse for supporting wellness during the fall and winter months. Simply take one daily for maintenance or take one or two daily when you want to remind your immune system to do what it's designed to do! 🙌💪The capsules contain coconut oil, Thieves, Lemongrass and Oregano. That's it, friends. Your body knows what to do with plants so you'll love how these make you feel. ❤️🌱

LITTLE HACK - The capsules are too big for most kids to swallow so if you want yours to benefit from this supplement... stick a pin in it and squeeze out its contents to apply topically to their feet and spines! For those under five... you can add more V-6 before using it on their skin!

Breathe Easy This Winter With RC Essential Oil

RC Essential Oil Blog 9-12-18.jpg

RC essential oil from Young Living is a blend of three types of Eucalytpus as well as Myrtle, Lavender, Cypress, Black Spruce, Peppermint and Marjoram. It has a lighter, sweeter aroma than Raven which makes it easier on kids and pets and it's much less expensive! A 5 mL bottle is only $10.50... which is a great deal for 85 to 100 applications. 🙌🙌

I also like applying a little to my chest and feet before running or working out and it is such a great one to diffuse during the day for an uplifting atmosphere in your home. You can also make a chest rub with it to stretch it and have it on hand ready to use for the upcoming season!

CHEST RUB

1/4 to 1/2 cup coconut oil
15 to 20 drops RC
10 drops Lavender
10 drops Lemon

Mix ingredients well and store in a glass jar. Gently massage into chest, back and on the bottoms of feet regularly through the fall and winter.

Goooood news, for all our Young Living friends! The order limit quantity for 5 mL RC has been raised to TWO per month per member! :) This is pretty timely, right?! It's a winter favorite around here and September is typically when I start stocking up.
