I just wanted to share a bit about how I’ve been using Young Living oils for beauty (and otherwise) and what I’ve noticed personally, after using them for over a month now.
Here is an info-graphic example of how the premium kit oils can be used daily.
I purchased a steel, 20 oz. mug (should be steel or glass, not plastic) and use that for my water with 3 drops of lemon and usually also add tangerine or grapefruit. I can say that I have not had a craving for coffee like I used to. Actually, there was one morning where I started with my water, worked out as I normally had, and didn’t realize I didn’t have coffee that day until after 5pm. Also, I’ve noticed it has delayed my hunger in the morning. I will still typically eat something but it’s helped to keep me from binge-eating/snacking. Also, I feel my digestion has improved. Having been diagnosed with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) years ago, I feel this has been beneficial.
I also use a drop of Frankincense mixed in with my skin moisturizer. Since doing this, I’ve noticed my pores aren’t as large around my nose and just the overall tone and texture seems to have improved. I didn’t start having facial skin issues until after I turned 30 – dark spots, blemishes and noticeable pores, so I’m glad I’ve found something that has been working. I haven’t tried Melaleuca (tea tree), which is also used for skin care but I also like the scent of Frankincense.
For mood I use Harmony, Citrus Fresh (love diffusing this one) and Peace and Calming. I could not stand the smell of Joy and had read that the one you can’t stand the smell of is likely the one you need. In order to get to where you can actually like Joy, Harmony was recommended (for emotional healing). Harmony is used in the Chakra clearing practice and if that’s all foreign-speak, you’ll have to do your own research and come to your own conclusion. I know, for some, these oils are kinda woo-woo and where it gets into the feelings and such, I’m sure there will be skeptics. But, I can say I feel Harmony has been helping me – although, I’ve been doing other things along with it, not just using the oil and waiting for something to happen.
I’ve been using peppermint on my youngest’s growing pains, as well as on her belly for tummy-ache (diluted, of course) and used thieves on my toothbrush with toothpaste too. Although, thieves is a warm oil, be ready to swish afterwards! But boy your mouth feels fresh afterwards! I used it on a canker sore too – but I still prefer a Tums for that.
These are so versatile and that’s why I love using them. They also make the whole main level of our home smell wonderful! I love mixing purification with Citrus Fresh! I usually diffuse lavender at night and although it’s probably the most popular, I find it’s the one I mostly use to diffuse at bedtime. You can use it on bug bites too, so I’m sure I’ll get more use of it this summer.
Anyway, just wanted to share this week, my experiences after having been using Young Living Oils for a month. If you’re interested in knowing more or would like a free sample of lemon or lavender (limited number), get in touch! No need to sign up, but if you do, it is the better deal as you get a diffuser as well.
My other beauty find is my Jamberry Pink Lemonade lacquer. I must have been in a pretty awesome mood when I bought it because normally I would not spend $15 on a bottle of nail polish, but it really is good stuff. It goes on nicely and dries quickly. The Jamberry sticky things aren’t my thing…more old school here! lol!
Well, I’ll close today with a quote. Have a wonderful week!
