Let’s talk about babies!

We want the best for the little ones in our lives. We want our babies to be safe, healthy and happy.

Do you ever wonder about the products you use on your baby’s skin? Did you know that it only takes 26 seconds for the chemicals you put on your child’s skin to enter the bloodstream?

Young Living cares deeply about the health of your entire family, including the youngest to the oldest. That’s why the Seedlings line of products was developed. You can be assured that the quality of this line is the best, and you can trust these products to go on even your precious newborn!

I am so thankful for Young Living’s commitment to give us safe products of the highest quality, backed by solid up-to-date scientific research.

This month we will focus on products and oils for infants. But keep in mind that as we age, the skin becomes more vulnerable, so you may also find some nuggets to keep in mind when also caring for the elderly members of your family.

First, let’s take a look at what is NOT in the Young Living Seedlings products. They are free from alcohol, parabens, phthalates petrochemicals, animal-derived ingredients, synthetic preservatives, synthetic fragrances or synthetic dyes. All these ingredients have the potential to cause a lifetime of health challenges. Is that what you want for your little one?

I encourage you to pick any three products you currently use on your baby and read the label. What ingredients do you find that could be harmful to yourself or your child? If you are unsure, make a note of the Environmental Working Group’s website where you can look up ingredients and how they rate for safety. Be sure to also check their Skin Deep page.

Do your homework and check our next post to discover the wonderful products Young Living has to offer. If you have questions please contact me at joyce@ShareScents.com.

I have published a special newsletter called Seedings: From Mother Nature’s Nursery to Yours. If you don’t have a copy of it, please send me an email and request the Seedling newsletter by name! You’ll love all the information it contains and will want to keep it for future reference.

Four Reasons to Choose Young Living

When I first was introduced to essential oils, not many people knew very much about them. To me it was an extension of knowledge I had accumulated over many years, because I loved gardening and had studied herbs already for many years before hearing about essential oils.

I found that knowledge and experience easily transferred to the products I was now learning about. I also knew that quality really matters. So I was happy to learn how important purity and integrity was to Young Living. Here are four reasons why I believe choosing Young Living Essential oils as a supplier is so important.

  1. Quality: Each bottle of Young Living essential oil contains pure distilled essential oil. This means a full application is only 1 to 2 drops. Feel the difference high quality makes as you breathe, rub on, or ingest these high-quality oils.
  2. Passion: The secret to Young Living’s purity and quality is found on their farms where they cultivate and harvest completely organic botanicals. Young Living has a team that personally travels worldwide to scout farms that offer ideal conditions for growing premium botanicals free from pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers. All of their plants are hand-weeded and have been validated by experts through scientific research, field study, university partnerships, and on-site planting certification. Their professional organization, called the Young Living Essential Oils Scientific Advisory Council, consists of prominent scientists from around the world who passionately provide innovative insight and expertise into the development of essential oils and essential oil infused products. This is redefining the way the world thinks about wellness.
  3. Experience: Since it was founded over two decades ago, Young Living’s exponential growth stands as a testament to their quality, purity, community and passion. Young Living has been the world leader in essential oils for over 20 years. Setting international standards with an unwavering dedication to authenticity, they operate their own farms, distilleries, labs and warehouses.
  4. Guarantee: The Seed to Seal process is carefully completed by sealing and inspecting every bottle of essential oil at a state-of-the-art facility where they ship out to Young Living members worldwide. Every Young Living oil is marked with the batch number to provide an extra layer of safety, accountability, and professionalism.

Young Living has earned the respect and loyalty of millions of people across the globe for having products that are powerful, effective, and versatile.

My personal care favorites

In the past few articles we have discussed some things to consider when caring for our skin. We talked about things like chemicals that can derail us in our health and beauty journey. We also looked at some essential oils that many women have found helpful to add a glow to their face.

If you think about it, Queen Esther soaked in Myrrh for six months and then other spices and oils were added to the regimen for another six months! REALLY? Yes, really! And the result was, she won the most famous beauty contest of all time!

Now I must admit that for many years I have been on a wellness journey that demanded I focus on internal health. So dedicating dollars to beautify my face and skin was a lower priority… Just being real here.

But ladies, there is nothing wrong with giving some attention to caring for our skin. After all, it is your body’s first line of defense. It is your largest organ and is as much as 15% or more of your total body weight.

Caring for your skin is important. So why not use the very best products available? Here is a very short list of my some of my favorite skin care products from Young Living Essential Oils. They are highly concentrated and therefore, very economical over the long road.  These are only a handful of the many awesome products available. You can visit my website and read my Women’s Personal Care newsletter to learn more, but this is a great place to start:

  • ART® Skin Care System (cleanser, moisturizer and toner)
  • ART® Renewal Serum
  • Sheerlumé™ Brightening Cream
  • Genesis Hand & Body Lotion
  • Rose Ointment
  • L Brianté™ Lip Gloss

Are essential oils magic?

Out of business

There has been so much talk about essential oils lately – both positive and negative. Often when people get amazing results using oils when nothing else seemed to help, they enthusiastically share their new-found success and joy with everyone they meet. Their friends may or may not get excited. Maybe they also experience some life-changing success. Or maybe not.

Why do oils seem to work like magic and other times they don’t? My view is that essential oils are not magic. Yes, they are powerful. They are highly concentrated and an outstanding tool when used as part of a healthy lifestyle. We should never expect instant success if we are sending mixed messages to our bodies on a continual basis.

Carla Golden sums it up very well…

It is common to hope & wish for therapeutic essential oils to fix, balance, or stabilize our bodies. Sometimes we view essential oils as magic potions that will override our other habits. But no essential oil is going to work to its full capacity in an acidic medium. The more we can create alkaline bodies, the more powerfully the oils will work.

If you are serious about supporting a healthy lifestyle and want to connect with me and learn some of the secrets I have discovered, please contact me. I love helping people who are ready to take control of their future health and wellness!

Wishing you a great future and a blessed day!

What is an essential oil?

Understanding essential oils is simple.God made plants. Essential oils come from plants. They are easy to use and very compatible with our bodies. Yet there is a complexity to them that is beyond our understanding. There is an intelligence that can work within our bodies for our benefit if distilled and used properly. Yet, if adulterated or not distilled properly, they can at best be just a smelly liquid and at worst can contain added chemicals that can be harmful.

It is so important to know your source of essential oils and to use them sensibly. I have trusted Young Living Essential Oils now for over 15 years. I can attest to their purity and have seen the many benefits they can provide to people who decide to use them responsibly.

If you want to learn more about essential oils, contact me. I love sharing and teaching others about essential oils and helping people discover their power.

Food or Chemistry Experiment?

What did your child have for lunch today?  What will you feed your family for supper tonight?  It really bothers me to see the many health problems being experienced by our younger generation. Things like childhood obesity and diabetes, allergies and asthma, not to mention behavioral and developmental challenges like ADHD, autism, depression, suicide, eating disorders, and more.

I recently read a book called Grain Brain by David Perlmutter, MD, that I highly recommend as “required reading” for EVERYONE!

So what does this have to do with essential oils?  Well, nothing directly.  But I just feel very passionate about the future of our children’s health.  Young Living Essential Oils has a lot of fantastic products for nutritional support and a healthy, chemical-free lifestyle.
