So I woke up this morning and my throat felt like someone stabbed it with a knife……then I took a deep breath in and my chest felt heavy. Ahhhh the joys of living through the four seasons in the Mitten 🙂 I’m not sure if its allergies or what but I am a BUSY working mom and nobody’s got time for this crap! Last winter when I first fell in love with these little wonder bottles of essential oils-I discovered adding a drop of lemon & thieves blend oils to my green tea.
AMAZING results! Sore throat…..gone! Congestion…….breaking up! Energy………coming back!
Starting to feel a bit under the weather…. Slightly congested? READ BELOW:
This is my go-to-combo:
Green tea 1 cup
Honey 1 tablespoon
Lemon essential oil 1 drop
Thieves blend 1 drop

Cheers to Good Health!
Got energy drinks?
I hate to admit it but I used to drink Red Bull…..and enjoy it! What I did not enjoy were the side effects like the jitters from the caffeine high or the crash I felt a few hours later. It’s been almost one year since I was introduced to Young Living and all of its amazing natural products. It feels so good to be using products that are not only chemical free but made from pure, natural ingredients!
Get ready for some NingXia Zyng! Let’s spotlight one of Young Living’s new products called NingXia Zyng. NingXia Zyng is a sparkling beverage that is very light and refreshing. You will not only feel hydrated but also a “Zyng” of energy. Zyng gets it Zing from its proprietary blend of black pepper and lime essential oils. It also contains wolfberry in a puree form along with white tea extract. With a fruitful hint you may taste the pear and blackberry juice concentrates. NingXia Zyng only contains 35 calories per serving which is 8.4 ounces. Talk about invigorating all of your senses, you are going to love this new drink. NingXia Zyng has no artificial sweeteners, additives or preservatives. It is sweetened with natural stevia.

Roller Bottles make the topical application of oils super easy. Depending on the recipe you add your drops of oils in a roller bottle, and then fill it up the rest of the way with carrier oil.
Carrier oils are a must-have if you plan to use essential oils for anything other than homemade cleaning products. A carrier oil is simply a liquid vegetable oil of some sort that is used to dilute the very concentrated essential oils.
My favorite carrier oil is Apricot Kernal Oil. Other options would include olive oil (kinda greasy, but it works), avocado oil, sweet almond oil, and fractionated coconut oil.
You can usually find these at your local health food store, or Amazon carries them.
*Fractionated coconut oil is simply coconut oil that has had the long chain fatty acids removed from it. The benefit of FCO is that it stays liquid at room temp, and is a lot handier to use for essential oil applications than regular coconut oil, which is usually solid at room temp.
Use a carrier oil if you are applying a “hot” essential oil like Oregano or Peppermint, as well as well you are applying essential oils to a child or someone with sensitive skin.
Well……start rolling it up 🙂
