Recap: Young Living "Accelerate: Wellness, Purpose & Abundance" Meeting in Raleigh on 8/8/16

We've waited quite a while for a Young Living-sponsored event in Raleigh, and this meeting was great! There were over 200 attendees and some drove close to 400 miles to be there (the couple seated next to me was from Virginia Beach).

Young Living is all about wellness and self-care to live a balanced life in good health and with joy – which is why the focus of this meeting was on "Wellness, Purpose & Abundance."

There were excellent speakers, including Ed Daily, RN/Patient Advocate and formerly an Integrative Therapist with Urban Zen. Ed updated us on the top nutritional supplemental products from YL:
  • Master Formula, a fabulous multi-vitamin/mineral supplement that has replaced True Source/His Formula/Her Formula.
  • NingXia Red, an oldie but goodie that is our super anti-oxidant juice.

    Challenge: Use Master Formula and N/Red for 60 days and see how you feel!!
  • PowerGize capsules, new, for mental clarity, stamina, energy, and more!
  • AgilEase, new, for joint health.
  • CoolAzul, topical pain relief cream.
  • SliqueShake, a new addition to the Slique weight loss line, the shake is a vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free meal replacement.

In addition, Ed stressed the importance of a healthy gut and immune system:

Finally, Ed talked about reducing the toxins in your home by using the Thieves line for cleaning to help make your home chemical-free. Many new products have been added to this line.

We spent a while talking about creating a prosperous Young Living business by sharing their fabulous products with others. This panel of successful distributors had great tips to share and they answered many questions. Leon Atcitty, Regional Sales Manager, explained the YL compensation plan and gave great ideas to grow your business, if that's part of your life plan.

Last but not least, we had a very entertaining and informative session with the Oola guys, Dr. Troy and Dr. Dave. What is the Oola Life??

"A state of awesomeness when your life is balanced and growing in the 7 key areas of wellbeing, the 7 F's of Oola – Fitness, Finance, Family, Field, Faith, Friends, and Fun."

This is a kind of self-help program to help you attain balance and happiness in your life. As they said, "working on yourself is not selfish, it is selfless." And even better, Dr. Young has created essential oil blends to amplify the effects of the process. I encourage you to check out their site go for an Oola Life!!

Special offer if you are still reading!! If you have been thinking about setting up your Young Living account so you can bring these wonderful products into your life, home and family at wholesale prices, I have a gift offer for you. Join by August 31, 2016, and I will send you a free "Essential Oils Pocket Reference, Sixth Edition," from Life Science. It's a tremendous source of information!!

  • Slique CitraSlim - really does reduce appetite and cravings.
  • Master Formula - 2 capsules and 1 caplet provide an amazing amount of vitamins, minerals and herbs each day.
  • Pure Protein Complete/Optimal 5 Protein Blend - This reformulated protein shake tastes great, even when only mixed with water. (I've tried chocolate.) A great variety of proteins and NO SOY! 25 grams in one 8 oz. shake!!

Cooking with YL Essential Oils

I love to cook! Trying new recipes or "creating" a new one or dinner from what I have on hand is lots of fun to me. Luckily it usually turns out pretty good!

I also enjoy growing my own herbs to use when cooking. But did you know you could use Young Living Essential Oils as well? They pack a very powerful punch! And now they have a line of essential oils called Vitality that are specifically labeled for cooking.

Try creating your own infused olive oil: add 3-4 drops to 8 oz. of extra virgin olive oil. (You can use more than one flavor but still use only 3-4 drops total.)

One friend said she added 1-2 drops of Lemon EO to her lemon meringue pie recipe – and that it was the best one she'd ever made!

Young Living has a great blog page on their website. Check it out for cooking recipes and all kinds of ways to use their fabulous essential oils! You can also sign up to receive the blogs in your email.

Let me know what you try!!

Tax Day Stress Relief!

Tax Day – it’s no one's favorite day, that's for sure! Let's review some of my personal favorite Young Living essential oils and blends to relieve stress.

Peace& Calming – one of my all-time favorite blends. It smells wonderful and truly lives up to its name! I also love this one at night to help me fall asleep easily.

Lavender – this one should be in every home simply because it is so versatile. (Many companies are now touting "lavender scented" products. Wouldn't you rather create your own with a pure, therapeutic grade essential oil?)

Tranquil – inspires feelings of tranquility and relaxation.

StressAway – very calming and relaxing aroma.

Valor – inspires courage to face any day!!

By the way, if you are getting a refund, congrats!! Have you been using Abundance??

Coping with Grief

Grief…an emotion we all experience at some point in our lives. It can feel overwhelming and debilitating – and it can make you just want to give up.

Lately I have had some friends and clients who are grieving in some way. It's sometimes hard to know what to say or how to help. In addition to offering an ear and shoulder or prayers, I have personally found some Young Living essential oils and blends to be helpful.

Many studies have shown that our sense of smell is the only one that has a direct effect on the limbic (emotional) region of the brain.

Try diffusing (or inhaling) Lemon, Jasmine, Frankincense or Peppermint.

My favorite blend is Joy; other blends you might try are Valor, Hope or Live with Passion.

Wishing you all peace of mind, body and spirit.

Favorite EO's for Valentine's Day

Are you planning a romantic evening for Valentine's Day? If so, here are some of my favorite oils and blends. They smell absolutely wonderful – and they can be quite alluring!

Single oils include Ylang YlangJasmine, and of course, Rose. I also like Sandalwood.

My favorite Young Living blends are Joy and Sensation. (Sensation is also available as a massage oilbath & shower gel, and hand & body lotion.) Guys may want to true a new blend called Shutran, which also comes as a shave cream.

Check these out! Wear as perfume, diffuse, add to a bath – get creative!

Happy Valentine's Day, and remember: always love yourself first!
