December Promotions

****** US DECEMBER PROMOS ******

Happy December, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and an amazing November. Of course, now that it’s over, we only have one month left in 2017! Can you believe it? And of course, December is one of the busiest months of the year, so before we know it *POOF*, it will be over too. But first, we’re gonna rock the socks off December and end this year with a BANG! So, with that in mind, let’s take a look at December’s promos and see how they’re gonna help us survive the holidays. Here they are!

Nutmeg Vitality 5-ml* (100 PV): You might have heard me talk about Nutmeg before and how it’s one of my go-to oils for lower back discomfort, but looking at Nutmeg Vitality, we get another look at some of its other amazing qualities. With the holidays being so crazy, both in full days and late nights, and in the stress we all feel to make it perfect, our adrenals take a beating. Thankfully, Nutmeg Vitality is a big support for our adrenals. Just put a drop under your tongue, or add a drop or two to a vegetable capsule as part of a daily health regimen, and give your adrenals that extra help. They’ll thank you for it. #protip: Nutmeg Vitality also supports your body’s natural production of melatonin, so take a drop before bed to help get a good night’s sleep!

Lemon 15-ml* (190 PV): On the opposite side of the spectrum, mornings during the holiday season can be a bit rough, but there’s no time to waste trying to wake up and get motivated. And that’s where Lemon steps in. Diffuse 5 drops of Lemon with 3 drops of Peppermint in the morning to cut through the grogginess and have you firing on all cylinders and ready to tackle everything on your holiday checklist. Plus, while you’re cleaning and getting the house ready for the inevitable swarm of friends and family that will be making their way to your home, add a few drops of Lemon to your Thieves Cleaner to spruce it up and add a crisp twist to the aroma, or use a drop or two of Lemon on those sticky discoveries you find while cleaning. It’s amazing how quickly that sticky mess will come right up!

Northern Lights Black Spruce 5-ml (190 PV): Coming from Young Living’s Northern Lights Farm in Canada, Northern Lights Black Spruce is an oil you might not be as familiar with, but once you use it, you won’t want to live without it. Its mellow, woodsy aroma is perfect for this time of year, but it’s also very grounding and calming. Want to put a woodsy twist in the diffuser with Christmas Spirit? Diffuse 4 drops of Christmas Spirit with 2 drops of Orange and 2 drops of Northern Lights Black Spruce for a festive, mood-boosting aroma that will have everyone spreading holiday cheer. #protip: use Northern Lights Black Spruce as part of your skincare routine to help support healthy looking skin!

Life 9 (250 PV): Gut health affects so many of the different systems in our bodies. Our immune system, our emotions, and many other areas can be thrown out of sync if we don’t make sure our gut health is on point. Especially during the holidays and all the sweets and large meals we don’t always eat, we need that extra support to make sure everything is working right in there. Life 9 is a probiotic that contains 9 strands of good bacteria that help support proper digestion and keep your gut working properly. I mean, who doesn’t want one less thing to worry about during the holidays? #protip: want your kids to get the benefits of Life 9? Open the capsule and add it to a delicious smoothie!

Sacred Frankincense 15-ml (300 PV): Last month we got a 15-ml Frankincense, and how does Young Living decide to top that? By giving us a 15-ml Sacred Frankincense!! You guys, this is a HUGE gift to us all, especially if you’ve never used Sacred Frankincense. Fun fact: Young Living’s Sacred Frankincense is the first Frankincense from Oman to be made available to anyone aside from the very privileged or the Saudi Royals. That, along with its incredible properties help make it one of the most sought-after and exclusive essential oils out there. So, how do you use it? Calming emotions, skin care, sleep, spiritual practices or ceremonies, meditation, and so. much. more! For those of you who do use this incredible oil, what’s your favorite way to use it? Share those diffuser recipes, roll-ons, and more so we can all find the very best ways to use this incredible oil! (Psst: a little birdy told me that when you hit the 300 PV level you also get the brand new 2018 YL Calendar for free with photos of YL members that Mary Young picked herself!)

Summer Fun & Oils

 

Summer is one of my favorite times of the year.  I am a beach girl through and through.  I LOVE the water and spending time in the sun.  That means I need to be careful and take care of my skin and body with all the exposure to the harsh sun. Plus, I have my kids to watch out for too.  My son is fair skinned and with skin cancer very high in my family we are always cautious.  Our love for the sun means there is no staying inside to avoid the sun so we do the next best thing and cover our skin as much as possible while still having fun and enjoying the summer. Young Living has also been a big help with summer sun.  Here are a few ways we use  Young Living during the summer.  Hope you enjoy these tips and find them helpful for your family too.

Essential Oil Safety – Photosensitising Oils & the Sun

Citrus-Essential-Oils

It is time for some essential oil safety information. The summer is just around the corner and we will be spending a lot of time outside in the sun.  I’ve seen some nasty burns from people who have used a citrus essential oil on their skin then gone out for a day in the sun or in a tanning bed. I want to be sure we all know about using citrus essential oils safely, so here we go.  Let’s get our learn on!

What is photosensitization?

Photosensitization, or phototoxicity, as it is also called, is a skin reaction caused by exposure to sunlight or other ultraviolet light. It can cause increased pigmentation and redness to the skin. Some essential oils absorb more energy from ultraviolet light than the skin does. These oils are photosensitizers and can only cause photosensitization when exposed to the sun or other ultraviolet light. The photosensitizing oils need to be applied to the skin prior to exposure to ultraviolet light in order to produce the phototoxic reaction. Photosensitizing oils should not be exposed to the sun for at least 12 hours after applied to the skin

What are photosenstising oil?

Essential oils are considered photosenstising when they contain either bergaptene or 5 methoxypsolaren at concentrations in excess of 0.000075%. Sound small doesn’t it?

If the concentration of either of these two components in an oil or product is below 0.000075% then the substance is considered to be safe for use prior to sun exposure.  If it is over this level then photosensitisation can occur.

Essential oils that may cause photosensitization

Essential Oil Latin Name Safe Dilution in 30 ml Base Bergamot Citrus bergamia 1 dropGrapefruit – Distilled or Cold Pressed (low risk) Citrus paradisi 24 dropsLemon – Cold Pressed Cit

***ALWAYS BE SURE TO LOOK AT THE LIST OF OILS USED IN BLENDS AND CHECK FOR PHOTOTOXIC OILS!!!***

As you can see, the phototoxic oils themselves are not causing any reaction when applied to the skin without exposure to ultraviolet light.  So, make sure that the essential oils are not applied before exposure to ultraviolet light and that you  dilute the essential oils properly.

Essential Oils and Your Animals

If you love using Young Living products in your home, you’ve probably wondered how you can share their amazing benefits with your animals. Which oils are safe to use? How much can I apply? Should I diffuse or apply topically?

If you’ve ever had questions like these, we’re here to help! Check out this quick-and-easy how-to guide for using essential oils with animals.* Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, here are a few things to keep in mind:

Animals-and-Pet-Infographic

Most animals are more sensitive than humans to essential oils.

  • Start by diluting heavily and use in moderation.
  • Every animal is different, so carefully observe how each animal responds to the oils. Use common sense and good judgment as you try different methods.
  • Take special care to not get essential oils in an animal’s eyes.
  • Avoid using high-phenol oils such as Oregano and Thyme with any animals, especially cats.
  • Use special caution when using essential oils with cats. Cats are also generally averse to citrus essential oils.

Your animal’s size affects the amount of oil you should use.

  • For smaller animals like cats and small dogs, use 3–5 drops. Be sure to dilute 80–90 percent prior to application (for example, for every 1 drop of oil, use 4–5 drops of a diluting agent, such as V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex).
  • For larger animals, like large dogs, start with 3–5 drops. Unless otherwise indicated on the product label, dilution is unnecessary.
  • For very large animals, like horses and cattle, start with 10 drops. Unless otherwise indicated on the product label, dilution is unnecessary.

Apply oils to yourself or diffuse to introduce animals to essential oils and help them get comfortable.

  • Wear oils around your animals, diffuse in their space, or apply to your hands and let the animal smell them.
  • If your animal is jittery or resistant to essential oils, try applying an oil to yourself and staying near the animal for several minutes so it can get used to the aroma.

Once they’re used to essential oils, animals can respond well to topical application.

  • For cats and dogs, paws are a great place to apply essential oils.
  • For hoofed animals, we recommend application on the spine or flanks.
  • Try rubbing oils onto your own hands and then stroking the animal’s fur.
  • For large or hard-to-reach areas, combine essential oils with V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex or water in a spray bottle for easier application.
  • Animal Scents Ointment can be used to seal and protect areas where essential oils have been applied topically.

 

Essential oils can be administered internally.

  • Some essential oils can be mixed with your animal’s food.
  • For large animals, you can pull out the bottom lip and drop oils directly into the mouth.
