Summer is a time when we love to get outdoors and play. We love to grill, head to the beach, take walks, and connect with friends. One thing I love is how Young Living makes all those things better! Whether it’s discovering new recipes that taste amazing, being able to use safe and healthy insect repellent and sunscreen, or soothe sore muscles after travel or working to hard in the garden, Young Living has an answer!

Here are a few of my summertime favorites: Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF50, Lavaderm After Sun Spray, Insect Repellent, Cool Azul Pain Relief Cream, Stress Away Roll-on, and numerous other essential oils like Citronella and Peppermint.

Be the best you… Be Savvy

Could I share from my heart with you? For quite a few years I was in a very dark place in my health journey. I dedicated a great amount of money and energy to reversing years of complicated health challenges. Something had to give, and the sacrifice I made was skin care. I stopped wearing makeup partly because I chose to dedicate those dollars to my health and wellness. But also because I could not find products that agreed with me.

Until last summer when Young Living released it’s brand new clean makeup line of products called Savvy Minerals. So I decided to give it a try. And then… I fell in love with my new younger look and feel. The coverage of wrinkles and age spots was impressive, even on my first attempt at putting on the makeup. I started to enjoy my new look and the confidence I felt.

So, I started to talk about it to friends and even developed some training about Savvy Minerals. If you are interested in a personal consultation, please contact me at www.ShareScents.com

In the meantime, check out this newsletter giving a brief overview of the new Savvy Minerals by Young Living: Savvy Newsletter 17-12 SS

Supporting your body with essential oils

For the past several weeks we have talked about a few basic things everyone should know before using essential oils. Now, let’s briefly look at 10 essential oils that are in my personal self-care kit and how they can be building blocks to support every part of the human body.

Muscle and Bone Support

PanAway – One of my favorites after exercise when my muscles are sore, or if I get a boo-boo that hurts! It has a safety cap, so that reminds you to use caution with small children.

Copaiba – Supports overall wellness, before and after a workout especially on moving parts. It has a very light aroma, so is especially nice to use in a gym.

Digestive Support

Peppermint Vitality – A great addition to your water. But remember it is very potent, so just one drop in a gallon of pure water is sufficient. If you have a gurgling tummy, take a drink of your peppermint water and then tap your cheeks. It’s amazing how good you feel after doing that!

DiGize — Is very supportive to the intestinal system. Rubbing a drop between the thighs or on the abdomen provides comfort if you eat too much and feel a little upset.

Respiratory Support

Thieves Vitality – A great dietary supplement to support overall wellness, particularly during times of the year when we need to enhance our respiratory system.

RC – Makes a wonderful partner to Thieves to provide respiratory comfort. Diffuse it to provide a comforting atmosphere, or rub it on the feet or chest for direct absorption into the body. Asthmetics should use it on the feet and not on the chest.

Immune Support

Lemon Vitality – This simple and lovely oil has so many benefits and uses, but one that is often overlooked is how it supports a healthy immune system by helping improve pH balance in the body. It is a great addition to water.

Purification – Breathing clean air is so important when thinking of staying healthy. Diffusing this oil is literally a breath of fresh air! Not only are you helping clean the environment, but imagine how it is purifying the inside of your body as you absorb it’s wonderful benefits.

Skin and Emotional Support

Lavender – Known for its benefits to promote relaxation, it can be a great addition to a soothing bedtime bath. The additional benefit is how supportive it is to the skin. There are hundreds of ways to use Lavender. These are just two ideas.

Frankincense – The “king” of all oils. It is very widely used in many skin care products and seems to magically support the appearance of the skin. You can also diffuse or breathe it in to promote grounding and purpose when you want to connect with God.

You cannot put a price on your health or your happiness. So why not check out these amazing essential oils and get them at a huge discount? Learn more in my newsletter called Journey with Essential Oils. You can request our copy by emailing me at Joyce@ShareScents.com.

Seedlings Shampoo and Baby Lotion

Two more wonderful additions to the Seedlings line of products are the new Seedlings Baby Wash and Shampoo, and the Seedlings Lotion.

There’s nothing like the smell of a baby’s freshly washed skin. Bath time can be even more soothing and sweet with the scent of Seedlings Baby Wash & Shampoo. It is lightly scented with the Calm blend of pure essential oils—featuring Lavender for its soothing, calming aroma. It is an extra gentle formula that leaves skin and hair clean, soft, and smooth without over-drying. Plus, it is dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, and vegan friendly. Watch for this exciting tear-free product to be added to the Seedlings Line soon! You’re going to love it!

Our love of lotion begins early in life. We love skin that is soft, hydrated and smells pleasant. Young Living’s gentle moisturizer is specially formulated for infants’ delicate skin. This non-greasy lotion supports moisture barrier function and smoothly absorbs into a baby’s skin, leaving it moisturized, soft, and smooth. It’s made with skin-nourishing ingredients and a Lavender-infused essential oil blend. I love the light fragrance of this lotion and wouldn’t mind using it on myself! Just saying…

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.

Keeping your baby clean and dry

Keeping your infant clean and comfortable can be a challenge sometimes! Well, OK, lots of times. If you are a parent of a newborn, you know how challenging a “blow-out” can be! Sometimes you have to bring out the big guns to clean up the mess!

Have you thought about what chemicals are in the disposable wipes you are using? And for that matter, are you sure they are leaving your baby’s skin clean and protected?

Young Living Seedlings has two wonderful products you are going to fall in love with immediately.

Seedlings Wipes are generously sized for the biggest messes at feeding or diapering time. They smell great and are 100% safe for your baby’s skin.

And then there is the Seedings Diaper Rash Cream. It is registered with the FDA as an Over The Counter medication, and does an amazing job at relieving, preventing and treating diaper rash.

And on a side note, both these products are great for everyone in the family. I love the Wipes for removing makeup. The Diaper Rash Cream will soothe and protect the most sensitive areas of any body, no matter what age! I do love how versatile Young Living’s products are. Seriously, you really need to get them!

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.

Seedlings Baby Oil

One of the first products your baby receives in a gift basket at the hospital is Baby Oil. Did you do your homework and discover what ingredients it contains that you probably don’t want to be putting on your newborn (or yourself, for that matter)?

In contrast, Young Living’s Seedlings Baby Oil is formulated specially for an infant’s delicate skin. This mild, gentle product contains 100 percent pure essential oils diluted to an appropriate strength, and its naturally derived, plant-based formula is lightly scented with our Calm blend of Lavender, Coriander, Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, and Geranium. Check the ingredient list to see how it compares to the other brand. Go back to the Environmental Working Group’s website and I know you will be pleasantly surprised at how clean the Seedlings Baby Oil really is!

The non-greasy formula moisturizes, soothes, and nourishes a baby’s skin. It absorbs smoothly; provides a light, calm aroma; and promotes a relaxing environment. Formulated without mineral oil, it is vegan friendly and suitable for everyday use. It is also dermatologist tested and hypoallergenic.

Seedlings Baby Oil is formulated with “dry” carrier oils that moisturize and absorb quickly and thoroughly into the skin, leaving a baby’s skin soft, hydrated, and smooth after applying.

Establishing a bedtime routine is very important in helping your baby get used to and look forward to restful sleep. Seedlings Baby Oil can be applied using baby massage techniques for sweet bonding with your little one.

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.
