Outdoor Essentials

I live in northern Minnesota, so my tan fades… that is if I get one at all with our short summers! I tend to burn easily and peal if I am out too long. Also, when I do go outside, often I am greeted by lots of little “annoyances” that make me want to take cover! BZZZZ!

So skin comfort is a big deal to me when I am outside.

 

 

Last week Young Living introduced three amazing products to enhance our outdoor experiences. These are Mineral Sunscreen Lotion, Lavaderm After Sun Spray, and Insect Repellent. I will receive these products today and and so excited to try them.

All are totally safe, free of any harmful chemicals, and tested and proven to be effective. In fact, the insect repellent was tested against the leading brand and found to be more effective and without DEET!  It is EPA approved. The Sun products are classified as OTC (over the counter) medications and once again, completely free of any harmful chemicals! The After Sun Spray can be used to treat burns as well as sunburn. The Sunscreen provides protection from multiple types of UV rays and waterproof for up to 80 minutes. It provides protection for 10 hours in the sun.

Once again, Young Living Essential Oils has done the research and given us a product that is safe, effective, and one I am sure you will use and love!

If you want to learn more about them, please contact me, since these are brand new products and I will be testing them out in the coming days!

In my newsletter called Oils On The Go, I share some other suggestions for making your sun and fun time better. And you will also find some important tips about sun sensitivity when using essential oils.

Oils to carry when you are on the go

Summer is a time when a lot of people travel. In fact, I am doing a fair amount of traveling this summer. So I got to thinking this is a good time to talk about how essential oils can fit into our travel plans, as well as what oils are always good to have “on you” when you are out and about town.

Today, let’s focus on the oils and products I normally carry.

This is a picture of the products I pulled out of my purse this morning. They represent a versatile collection of products that I always want to have with me.

My Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier – well, what can I say? It’s pure and leaves my hands feeling clean and soft. Not to mention, that is just plain smells great!

Thieves Spray is perfect for spraying on surfaces I may have to be in contact with that, well, let’s face it, probably I wouldn’t want to touch if I knew what had been there before me! It’s also great to freshen up the air in a smelly place, if you know what I mean.

The Cinnamint Lip Balm and L Briante’™ Lip Gloss keep my lips looking and feeling great.

Frankincense is my “Swiss Army Knife” of essential oils. I love it and it is great for any unexpected need from head to toe.

Inner Defense keeps my Immune System strong and as you can see, I keep a few capsules in a small pill box in my purse at all times. You just never know who might want a boost! I also carry a few Thieves Lozenges, which I forgot to pull out of my purse for the picture!

Finally, there are three roll-ons that are my go-to oils after Frankincense. Stress Away, Breathe Again, and Deep Relief. In my opinion, they pretty much cover nearly any situation that might crop up. In fact, let me tell you a quick story to demonstrate their versatility. And really, isn’t that what you want when you are away from home — versatility?

I was at an event and this young girl stepped on a rusty nail. She was in a total panic. I was one of the ladies trying to calm her and handle this emergency. Of course she needed medical attention, but the immediate need was to calm her, ease her pain, and clean the wound. And so in that order, my brain said, “You’ve got oils for this!” Stress Away calmed and quieted her uncontrolled crying. Next, I could reason with her that we can make this feel better. Deep Relief to the rescue! Finally, once she was calm and feeling better, we could clean the wound and apply Breathe Again. Why Breathe Again? Well, my knowledge about what is in it told me that it had properties that would be cleansing and just be helpful. As I always say, “If you don’t have what you need, use what you have.” Crisis over and she was on her way for professional help!

So you see, essential oils are a must for me when I am ON THE GO!

Macho Man from the Inside-Out

A few years ago, my husband had a wake-up call with his health. I had already implemented a number of changes to support my wellness journey, but now he got more serious about it too.

We significantly reduced the amount of meat and processed foods in our diet. We added more fresh organic veggies and fruits. He got serious about getting on the exercise bike daily. And he started taking supplements to support his cardiovascular health and also his overall health.

Take a look at these powerful supplements from Young Living:
  • OmegaGize³ – Combines the power of three core daily supplements-omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin D-3, and CoQ10 to synergistically support normal brain, heart, eye, and joint health.
  • NingXia Red – A powerful, whole-body supplement packed with superfoods to support overall wellness.
  • PowerGize – Specially formulated to help individuals of all ages boost stamina and performance. Helps sustain energy levels, strength, mental and physical vibrancy, and vitality when used in addition to physical activity.
  • Agilease – Especially beneficial for athletes, as well as middle-aged and elderly people who may experience a natural, acute inflammation response in their joints after exercise. Contains powerful ingredients and essential oils that are known for their joint health benefits.
  • Master Formula – Prepackaged sachets are convenient to take your vitamins on the go. A full spectrum, multi-nutrient complex to support general health and well-being
  • Prostate Health — Specially formulated for men to promote healthy male glandular system and prostate function.

Young Living supplements are infused with pure therapeutic grade essential oils to add power to their scientifically researched formulas. They have made a significant impact on my wellness journey and I highly recommend them for you and/or the men in your life.

Energy buddies for men

Every man desires to maintain youthful strength and vitality. Our society is fast-paced and sometimes that is a challenge. Perhaps you reach for energy drinks to keep going during long hours at work or play. Maybe you snack on processed and convenience foods that satisfy cravings but over time may lead to unwanted health challenges. Then you work out (or do chores at home) and “feel” it afterward.

It would be wonderful if everything your put in your body would add strength and energy, but that requires planning and dedication.

What if there were life-giving snacks and energy drinks that offered healthy solutions to these needs?

Incorporating essential oils into your life is easy and can put a manly spring in your step. Young Living Essential Oils has some great options for you! Here are three to consider:

  • Looking for a great tasting carbonated energy drink? Check out NingXia Zyng – A hydrating splash of essential oil-infused goodness
  • Looking for a healthy energy shot that supports your heart and brain? Check out NingXia Nitro – A quick pick-me-up without the sugar or caffeine overload
  • Looking for products to support your workout strategy? Check out the Young Living Active & Fit Kit – Supports every fitness regimen, from elite competition to daily workouts

Boosting masculinity and confidence…

Last week we talked a little about scents men prefer and that often those are different from the scents women enjoy.

Scents are all around us. They are part of nature. So if you can find a scent that appeals to men and supports overall wellness and then include that scent in some amazing products that are used regularly, it would be a win-win! Right?

Gary Young from Young Living Essential Oils spent many years researching and working on that challenge! The result was a scent he called Shutran™, named after a fictional character in his book The One Gift.

Shutran™ is an empowering essential oil blend specially formulated for men to boost feelings of masculinity and confidence. It is perfect for use as a cologne that appeals to both men and women and is also the scent found in an entire line of products designed for men.

  • Essential Oil – Boosts feelings of masculinity
  • Bar Soap – Vegan-friendly, with a creamy lather
  • Shave Cream – Delivers close, smooth shave
  • After Shave Lotion – Freshens and calms your skin
  • Beard Oil – Softens and conditions your beard

Oh, and by the way, my husband does like Shutran™! And Shutran™products can make great gifts for the men in your life!

Men are from Mars… Or so they say!

My husband is the inspiration for today’s blog post. First, you need to know that he says he doesn’t like the smell of most essential oils. However, he is a researcher and is always sharing with me information that he finds about the benefits of essential oils.

He has two go-to essential oils: Oregano and Tea Tree. And he does like the Young Living Thieves Spray.

It’s no secret that women seem much more drawn to essential oils than men, but there are certain smells that men prefer over others.

For example, most men really LOVE Idaho Balsam Fir and other scents of the forest like spruce. What I find interesting is that Balsam Fir essential oil has properties that are very supportive to the male endocrine system. I wonder if there is an inner compelling need that draws them to that scent? Do some research and you may discover some things you never knew before!

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
