Young Living Wellness Program! What is this?

YLWellness_BannerWe have developed a series of informational and how-to videos that focus on a body system and a lifestyle change for each month. They are fantastic!

Follow along to gain one of the most important skills for being (and staying) well — self-awareness. How do you know if you’re well? How do you know if you’re getting better? or worse? Are you waiting on someone else to tell you? You don’t have to — you CAN know. These are the tools that Peter used on his wellness journey — detoxing from chemo and the effects of it in his body.

Join us on a year-long journey, as we implement a wellness strategy that encompasses lifestyle changes, diet adjustments (or overhaul), expert advice on supplementation and use of essential oils, and daily action steps in video format.

Every month there will be a “What to Order” video installment for your Young Living Essential Rewards order. It will include the supplement program for the body system of the month and supplies to help make the environmental lifestyle change. We’re taking it in increments so that by the end of the year, we’ve learned about and gotten in touch with every system of the body AND most areas of lifestyle.

 

 

Use What You Have

This is principle #2 in our trainings “Essential Oils for Your Family” and “Methods of Use.” Use what you have.  We developed this principle while out and about or traveling, and having only a few essential oils with us. In those instances, it’s likely that we won’t have the “perfect” oil for every given situation that comes up.

You usually won’t have the “perfect” oil for every situation when you’re traveling.

A couple of stories come to mind.  We were out and about and encountered an outdoor annoyance.  My “perfect” oil for that situation is the Purification® blend.  When we apply it quickly enough, no issues!  Well, no Purification in the diaper bag… Did I say, “Oh well. I’ll wait until we go home to apply Purification”?  No.  I used what we had.  Of the few in the diaper bag, I chose Lavender.  It helped!  Another story – we were at church and a child vomited behind us.  My go-to oil when I need extra cleaning boost in the environment would definitely be a Thieves® blend-infused product (Thieves Spray, Thieves Hand Purifier, Thieves Cleaner).  Did we have any of them? No. So, I rummaged through the diaper bag and came up with Purification.  We applied it to all the kids and dropped some on the floor after the vomit was cleaned up.

There are many instances when we may not have the “perfect” oil. Sometimes we’re waiting on it to arrive. Sometimes we need to budget. Sometimes it’s at home. Sometimes the kids did something with it. Sometimes it’s out of stock.

So, what do you do?

Use what you have!

use of essential oils

We all have our favorite essential oils, the ones we rely on.

We all have our go to oils. The ones we love, the ones we rely on.  While Valor® has been out of stock, I’ve been telling everyone, “Be Brave! It won’t be long.”  All the while, I’ve had a stockpile of 4-5 bottles. Well, that was a deceiving “stockpile,” because they were all about half full.  Then, to top it off, we lost our entire diaper bag set while traveling. Ouch.  Now, I tell the kids, “You do know that Valor is out of stock…” every time one of them has a clumsy spell.  And, I’ve branched out.  We tried the “Owie™” blend in the new KidScents Collection. It works, too! (We ran through the bottle in a month!) And, I’ve lined up oils that others have told me work for soothing the skin (namely Lavender and PanAway®) in case we run out of Valor.

Here are a couple of thoughts that help me when I’m panicking about not having the “perfect” oil…

1)      The plant only has one essential oil.  An injured Peppermint plant doesn’t think, “Oh! If only I had Lavender oil, I could really get to work!”

2)      The fact is that our God is a God of abundance – and provision.  He provides many solutions to our every need.  So, get creative.

And, use what you have!

 

Important Note: “Use what you have” only applies when you know you have pure, potent, plant essential oils. Because of the nature of the essential oil market, I cannot recommend you just “use what you can find.” We use only Young Living Essential Oils.

No Panicking!

That’s the number one rule in our family: “No Panicking!”  We developed it when our oldest ds1 was a baby.  I have to say that it was mostly for the parents at that time, but it has been a most effective household rule as everyone has gotten older and our family has grown.

We have some corollaries, now: ”Keep Calm and Use Oils,” or as our two-year old, ds4, says “Take a deep breaf.”
