All about ART (Age Refining Technology)

If you’re like me when I first joined Young Living, you may only be using essential oils and blends. Guess what? They have SO many other products!

Today I want to introduce you to their beauty products. I love the 
Age Refining Technology (ART) line. This line is wonderful! It “safely and effectively cleanses, tones, and moisturizes your face to bring out your natural and inherent beauty.” Designed for every skin type, the line creates an effective and natural skin care regime that’s easy to follow – there are no harsh chemicals here!

Items in the ART line include a gentle cleanser, a refreshing toner, a light moisturizer, an intensive moisturizer, a renewal serum, and Sheerlume, a brightening cream. The cleanser, moisturizer, and toner can also be purchased as a set. The line also includes a beauty mask and an ultra-moisturizing creme mask.

And you don’t have to use the products as-is…you can customize the products to your specific needs by adding additional essential oils. Check out the chart below:

 

Spring is the perfect time to give your skin some extra attention as it gears up for the heat of summer. The Young Living ART line of products will certainly help with an overall spring refresh. Next month, I'll introduce you to some additional Young Living facial care products.

Understanding the VitaFlex Technique

Did you know there’s a very easy way to enhance the use of your Young Living essential oils?

It’s called the VitaFlex Technique, and it's part of the Raindrop Technique developed by Dr. D. Gary Young, founder of Young Living. (Although he may have been the first to combine the technique with essential oils, the term was coined by Dr. Stanley Burroughs and is based on ancient Tibetan reflexology.)

When you research what essential oils may be beneficial for an issue, it is often suggested that you apply the oil to the corresponding VitaFlex points on the feet. VitaFlex is, quite simply, rolling the fingertips from pad-to-tip-to-nail. The motion creates an electrical charge and, since essential oils also have an electrical charge, it increases the benefits of the application.

I found two short videos that show the technique in detail. Since spring is upon us and many suffer from allergies, I am including one that not only describes the technique but also shows how to VitaFlex the sinus points on the face. Sinus VideoVideo

I hope you’ll add this simple technique often when using your Young Living essential oils!
 
Happy Spring!

A CBD solution you can trust with Nature's Ultra

I had heard rumors that CBD oil/Young Living products were in the works. I’ve been using CBD massage oils with some of my clients who have pain issues, so this was good news. I received this blog from Nancy Sanderson this week introducing a new line from Nature’s Ultra. If Young Living agreed to work with their products, that’s enough endorsement for me! I’m pleased to share her blog with you this month.

A CBD solution you can trust with Nature's Ultra
CBD Infused With Young Living's Vitality Essential Oils With Nature's Ultra Products

Every ingredient has a story. Every formula has a purpose. At the heart of Nature's Ultra is the notion that CBD shouldn't have to do all the work by itself.

We've carefully aligned each of our formulas with a select and potent supporting cast of natural ingredients and essential oils so that our products deliver unrivaled purity and performance.

All-Natural Ingredients
From the hemp we use to our proprietary CBD formulas, we only use all-natural ingredients in our products. Available in All 50 States, our products can be shipped to any state in the USA. Vegan Approved. Our CBD products do not contain any animal byproducts and we've made a commitment to our customers to never do any animal testing. Gluten Free & Non-GMO (Scientists, consumers and environmental groups have cited many health and environmental risks with products containing GMOs. Our entire product line is organically and naturally cultivated.)

Infused With Young Living Essential Oils
CBD and essential oils are perfect companions-but not all essential oils are created equally, and we want the very best for you. We selected Young Living Essential Oils because, like us, they're committed to pure, high-quality products. In fact, their Seed to Seal quality commitment and its three pillars - Sourcing, Science, and Standards - are more rigorous than any other we found.

Not only is Young Living the world leader in essential oils, but they've also pioneered the modern-day essential oils movement for 25 years and provide more than 600 essential oil and essential oil-infused products to more than 6 million households across the globe. Now, for the first time ever, you can experience Nature's Ultra CBD infused with Young Living essential oils!

Nature's Ultra CBD products with essential oils are exclusively infused with only Young Living essential oils, because our customers deserve the best nature has to offer.

CBD ROLL ONS
Our CBD roll on is available in two strengths of CBD: 300 and 600 MG. There are four essential oil infused blends to choose from: Boost (Infused with Thieves); Calm (Infused with Young Living Essential Oils); Soothe (Infused with Breathe Again); and Zest (Infused with Citrus Fresh).

CBD OIL
Our CBD oil is available in 5 strengths of CBD: 500, 1000, 1500, 3000 and 4500 MG. There are 5 flavors to choose from: Cinnamon (Infused with Cinnamon Bark); CitrusCool MintLemon-Lime; and Unflavored.

CBD MUSCLE RUB
Muscles can hold a grudge. Whether you've spent the day at the gym, hiking, moving boxes, or lifting children, it's going to take something fierce for your body to forgive you. Our CBD Muscle Rub is available in two strengths of CBD: 300 and 600 MG. CBD Muscle Rub.

CBD OIL FOR PETS
Our all natural and organic CBD oil for Pets is available in three strengths of CBD: 200 MG, 400 MG and 800 MG. All of our Pet CBD products are unflavored. Unflavored CBD Oil for Pets.

What is Reiki?

What is Reiki? I am asked this often, so I’d like to answer for those of you who may not be familiar with this form of self-healing.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei, which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki, which is "life force energy." So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." Simply put, it allows the client to tap into and direct the healing force of the Universe, or God, to help restore balance and harmony. It can affect the body, mind and Spirit. The Reiki practitioner provides assistance in accessing this energy, but the client is totally “in charge of the session” (usually in a subconscious manner as there is no “effort” needed on their part).

Sessions are almost always very relaxing, and they can provide relief from a variety of issues: physically, mentally, emotionally or Spiritually.

Who is the Reiki Practitioner? The ability to use Reiki is not “taught.” Instead, it is passed through attunements from a Reiki Master Teacher to the student to enhance access to the Universal Life Force Energy, which can improve health and one’s quality of life. It is available to everyone, including people of all ages, plants and animals. You can also use it on yourself!

Reiki is not a religion or based on any specific beliefs. But from my personal experience, becoming a Reiki practitioner strengthens one’s Spiritual growth, whatever your faith or belief.

I hope this explains Reiki for you. If you have questions, please contact me. Here are some links you might find interesting for more information:
