Winter Wellness: my young living must-haves



Now that Florida is seemingly playing catch up with the rest of the country on the cooler weather I figured now would be the best time to introduce to y'all my winter wellness must haves from Young Living!



1. Thieves Cleaner: I'm obsessed with this cleaner. Why? It's non-toxic, chemical free, and plant based. It also cleans just as effectively as whatever carcinogenic household cleaner you're currently using (ewwwww). Mamas, soon to be mamas, and cleaning fanatics- this is your new BFF.

2. Inner Defense: Young Living is so much more than just essential oils. We offer a variety of wellness products to keep you and your fam-bam above the wellness line. Inner Defense is an essential oil infused soft-gel capsule that reinforces systematic defenses, supports immune system health, and supports healthy respiratory function. I like to take 1 capsule daily to keep create an unfriendly terrain for yeast and/or fungus. 

3. Super C: This is Young Living's take on Vitamin C supplement. At first, I was really hesitant to try this (I got it fo' free in my ER) because of the word "chewable". Now, I'm not a chewable kinda gal. *gag*, but upon opening it my nose was met with the sweet aroma of orange. (Uh, hello!).. so I took a chance and chewed one up. It's combined with orange essential oil and a proprietary blend of camu camu, acerola, cherry and rose hips fruit powder to create a powerful immune-supporting supplement! Whenever you need that Vitamin C boost to keep you above that wellness line, Super C will getcha everytime. (PS- contains milk, so it's not vegan friendly)

4. Ningxia Red: If you haven't head about Ningxia Red where on earth have you been?! Two 2 oz. samples of Ningxia Red comes FREE with your Premium Starter Kit and in my opinion is something we all should have in our homes all year around! It's a special blend of wolfberries, blueberries, pomegranate, aroniaberries, cherries, plums, and essential oils that provides a your body with powerful antioxidants that may boost your immune system, optimize cardiovascular health, support healthy vision and improve your memory. It's also low on the glycemic index, and may maintain healthy blood pressure. WHAT?! You. Need. This. Like now, friend.

5. R.C.: Respiratory Control* This essential oils comes in your Premium Starter Kit and is great for when you're not feeling your best. I like to dilute it with carrier oil and apply it to my chest, neck and throat when I'm not feeling my best. You can also diffuse it while you sleep to promote clear breathing throughout the night. It's a powerful essential oil blend with: Eucalyptus Globulus, Myrtle, Marjoram, Pine, Eucalyptus Radiata, Lavender, Cypress, Black Spruce, Eucalyptus Citriodora, and Peppermint. WOW!

6. Oregano: Friends, you can do more than just cook with oregano oil. This is such an amazing oil to have in your wellness arsenal. It's absolutely fantastic for cold weather season and here is why: According to Web/MD, "Oregano is used for respiratory tract disorders such as coughs, asthma, croup and bronchitis. It is also used for gastrointestinal (GI) disorders such as heartburn and bloating. Other uses included urinary tract infections (UTIs), headaches, and heart conditions." Oregano oil can be used topically, aromatically and internally. CAUTION THOUGH! This is a "HOT" oils and requires dilution if applied topically.

7. Thieves: One of the main reasons people choose Young Living (aside from their Seed to Seal Promise to families) is because of their legendary Thieves blend. This is another oil that comes in the Premium Starter Kit! Thieves blend of clove, lemon, rosemary, cinnamon, and eucalyptus is based on the legend of thieves who covered themselves with this mixture of herbs and spices before robbing plague victims. This oils supports overall wellness and a healthy immune system. Little tid-bit: take a shot of Ningxia Red with a drop of Thieves vitality for a quick, spicy boost to your daily Ningxia Red shot.

8. Stress Away: Friends, lets rejoice for Stress Away. The name of the oil says it all. Like #stressbegone or #stressfreelife.... Especially around the winter season. Why? Chaos! Family and friends visiting? Stress Away. In-Laws surprising you on your door step? Stress Away. Don't know what to buy everyone from Christmas? *Ahem, Stress Away*. Your dog just pooped somewhere in the house and you can't find it? Stress Away. "Mom. Mom. Mon. Momma. Momma. Mommy. Mommy. Mommy. MOOOOOOOOMMMMYYYYY!!!" You got it, Stress Away. Roll and diffuse thise precious oil to keep yaself calm this season. Oh, and this baby also comes in the Premium Starter Kit too! ;-) You're welcome!

These  8 must-haves are powering me through the holiday season and I'd love to chat about how they can power you through yours too.

XOX,
