Young Living Lifestyle Blogs

One of the best advantages of being a wholesale member with Young Living is the opportunity they offer us to build a passive income by encouraging, inspiring and helping others. Not only do we get to simplify our life by having great lifestyle products sent directly to our home every month, but we get the chance to participate in monthly product promotions and save up "frequent buyer points" for free products. Add to that the chance of building up a great PASSIVE INCOME as we simply share Young Living with others so that they can also enjoy all the perks Young Living offers, and it sure makes it super awesome to be a wholesale member in Young Living. Cool

My 14-year-old daughter, Ziedite, sprained her ankle severely on Valentine’s Day as she practiced for a cheerleading showcase on Sunday. She is one of the flyers and so the likelihood that she falls is fairly high. The coach told her that almost every flier has sprained or broken their ankle in the past. Ziedite had made it through the football and basketball seasons without an injury, but just as they were preparing to showcase some cheerleading routines, including some tumbling which she does so well, she fell and received a third-degree sprain on her left ankle.

 

Thankfully, when we went to see the doctor the next afternoon, she checked it out and said it was not broken. Another good thing was that the foot, though severely inflamed because of the nature of the injury, was not bruised at all. Thirdly, her pain level was low - only a 4 out of 10, she said. That was truly amazing! So no black and blue foot, low pain level and no fracture - we are very thankful! She will only need to miss practice for a couple of weeks and she can start doing her flyer routines again, along with her tumbling.

 

As we care for my daughter during this time, I am reminded of how thankful I am to be a member of Young Living. I know that the oil supplements I give her daily contribute largely to the fact that there were no broken bones and that there is no bruising on her foot. Inflammation is simply the way our body copes to cushion the injured part of our body as it works on healing it; kind of like a natural padding. Therefore, inflammation is not the bad guy here, though too many times we treat it as if it were. We must expect inflammation when we have a sports injury. Treating it with ibuprofen is not the solution because we WANT the padding as we recover; what we need to concentrate on is giving our body what it needs to enhance healing.

 

The 4 supplements I give my daughter daily are 

1. an ounce of Ningxia Red -  her liquid multivitamin, multimineral and antioxidant supplement. She takes the rest of her supplement capsules with it; she prefers to drink them with NingXia Red than with water. 

 

2. a capsule of Agilease - “a joint health supplement that’s perfect for healthy individuals who are looking to gain greater mobility and flexibility through the reduction of inflammation.” This supplement is marketed as one that will support joint health and that will help protect joint and cartilage health.

 

3. a capsule of Super Cal Plus - more than just calcium and minerals. it is “a true bone-health supplement.” Therefore, you would agree that it’s a great supplement for young cheerleaders to take daily.

 

4. two capsules of OmegaGize³, which combines the power of three core daily supplements-omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin D-3, and CoQ10.  “Used daily these ingredients work synergistically to support normal brain, heart, eye, and joint health.”

 

To aid her body as it works on healing the severe sprain, I added a capsule of BLM to the regimen. This supplement supports Bones, Ligaments, and Muscles. It contains not only MSM, collagen, and glucosamine, but also 3 wonderful oils that help combat inflammation, reduce pain and provide a large amount of antioxidants:  Idaho Balsam Fir, Wintergreen, and Clove. I encourage you to do your own research on each oil individually to learn why these oils are so amazing for athletes to take. 

A lot of people are getting sick with sore throats and runny noses these days, and every year around this time it's the same. We blame the cold weather. We blame the fact that others are sick so there is nothing we can do but "catch" the virus as well. Truth is, there are quite a few things we can do to stay healthy. In this blog I want to mention three very important ones:

 

1. Above all, refrain from consuming sugar. There is sugar in almost all processed "foods" and beverages, so be extra careful and read levels. If it's obvious that there's sugar, then pick something else; however, check labels because there's even sugar in ketchup! Find some alternatives to your sugar addiction because your body WILL CRAVE SUGAR to satisfy your pallet. It's proven that sugar is more addictive than crack cocaine and heroine!  

 

2. Get enough sleep every single night. Our body reboots itself at night time, as we sleep, so if we try to live on just a few hours of sleep each night our body is going to break down and force us to catch up on that lost sleep. So sleep it off without any cold medications. Just lay down and go to sleep. Besides cutting way down on sugar, sleep is THE most important thing we can do to stay healthy and get healthy. 

 

3. Drink lots of water throughout the day BETWEEN MEALS and when you first wake up in the morning. The best thing we can drink is NOT a cup of coffee - it's 8 to 16 oz of filtered water. Don't particularly like the taste? Here are a couple of suggestions: Add a drop of Lemon Vitality oil into your 16-20 oz water bottle, shake it up and drink it up. If you want something that will warm you up, heat up a mugful of water and add to it either a couple drops of Slique Essence or a drop of Spearmint and 2 of Lime.

 

Want to kick it up a notch? Here are some extra suggestions:

- Diffuse Raven, Lemon or Thieves essential oil in the living room and bedrooms, day and/or night.

 

- Add a couple teaspoonfuls of NingXia Wolfberries. I find that the Young Living brand is the same price, but if you are on their Essential Rewards Program you get $19 back in points to redeem for other free products of your choice, so totally worth getting it from them. Plus, you can count on their quality being top notch!

 

-Lastly, make sure you have the Thieves line of products to clean your floors, counters, clothes, dishes and your hands (in the bathroom as well as whenever you go out). Their line of products enhances our lifestyle since they have no harmful ingredients PLUS Young Living's high-quality essential oils.

 

Stay healthy throughout every season, regardless if others are getting sick all around you. Just lower your sugar intake from foods and beverages, drink lots of water, and get enough sleep every night. If you want to kick it up a notch, diffuse top-quality essential oils, use Young Living's Thieves line of products and add wolfberries to your tea.

 

 

Regardless of whether or not you’re “building a business” with Young Living, the Essential Rewards is a marvelous program to be on! You see, by purchasing their brand of products on a monthly basis - products we use every single day in our homes - they will give us back 10 to 25% in points which we can then redeem for free products! 

 

Here is how it works. In the first 3 months they give us back 10% of the PV (product value) in points we can save up and redeem for others things we want (like shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, toothpaste, makeup, baby products, a supplement, an oil etc). Starting in the 4th month of being committed to this program, we get double that! They reward us with 20% back in points. For example, if in the first 3 months we spend 50 PV, we will be given back 5 points. By the end of 3 months, we will have saved up to $15 worth of eligible products (most in their catalog are, by the way). When we reach our 4th month that same PV translates into $10 back! So 3 months later we have $30 plus the $15, so $45 to redeem for free products. 

 

And that’s not all! If we commit to just start swapping out things from our home and decide to purchase $100 a months in Young Living products - actually 100 PV (PV stands for “product value” since we have an international market and so each product has a certain value) - we will get $10 back the first 3 months and $20 back starting at the 4th month, PLUS each of those months we will receive a FREE 5 ml BOTTLE OF ESSENTIAL OIL. If we absolutely fall in love with their products and want to keep using their supplements (like their amazing NingXia Red), and we spend 190 PV worth of products, we get even more free products. What we get varies from month to month, so watch for the “month’s freebies” at 190 PV, 250 PV, and 300 PV levels. Gosh! It totally simplifies our life to switch to their brand because they have sooooo many products that we use every day from hair care products and facial care ones, all the way to housecleaning ones. They even have a baby line and a makeup line now! Once you experience their products and really realize that ALL their products have great ingredients in them, ones that are actually ENHANCING your brain health, emotional health, and physical health, I can almost guarantee that you won't want to read another label at your local store again. All I can say is that it certainly has simplified my life to switch over to their brand of products and that is why I absolutely love sharing about this company and about their Essential Rewards. 

 

So…. back to the Essential Rewards Program…. If you stay committed for two whole years you start receiving 25% back! How cool is that? Then your points start adding up real fast and you can get so many FREE products that you are going to be totally amazed. Gosh, just last year I got $950 worth of products for free, and I am very grateful for that. All I did was purchase supplements and essential oils that we need at home to help us stay fit and healthy throughout the year, and I was able to get a bunch of personal use and cleaning products for free. It just can’t get any better than that, you guys, and that is why I will continue to share about this program relentlessly. It’s the best rewards program in the world, in my opinion. Experience it for yourself by signing up for this program this month, if you have not already.
