Choosing Health with Young Living

0

Back in 2014, I had no idea what awaited me.  I was leaving teaching after 30 years and was looking forward to sleeping past 4:30 a.m., relaxing, traveling, enjoying grandchildren, and writing.  I had actually already written a book that needed some further editing, and I was hoping to find a way to get it published.  And then, OILS!

A good friend of mine introduced me to Young Living Essential Oils, linked her arm in mine, and escorted me into a new business!  I was interested but tentative.  My reservations about starting a new business didn’t last long.  First of all, I love the essential oils. I had always been sensitive to smells—cleaning products, hair sprays, candles, and so many things.  Now I had a diffuser which dispersed beautiful aromas into my home without causing sensitivity issues.  And the bonus is aromatic benefits.  Second, the business aspect grew very quickly. My family fell in love with the oils and the health benefits.  Soon friends and extended family were involved, and I haven’t looked back.

Additionally, this business has expanded my horizons, given me an outlet for writing, taught me many new things, and blessed me with many new friends. Though the financial benefits are there, I believe the health benefits are even more rewarding.  I have purged my home of many chemicals by replacing cleaning products, skin products, food products, and daily supplements.  I live a much more conscious healthy lifestyle because I have been educated.

Essential oil use needs to accompany other healthy lifestyle choices.  My goal when I started was to focus on my health, and I have found essential oils helpful as I increase my exercise routine, improve my eating habits, get an adequate amount of sleep, and reduce the stressors in my life.  For me, this business is about partnering with those who are on a journey to better health and looking for a cheerleader to come along side to provide education and support.

This week, Young Living upgraded their popular Premium Starter Kit.  I’m excited about it because they have re-introduced two popular essential oil blends to the kit. It now includes 12 essential oils, a diffuser, samples of their popular antioxidant boosting drink, Thieves Household cleaner, and more.  With one collection, you can begin your own journey to transforming your home and your health and decrease your exposure to harmful products.

I believe people have an increased awareness of the benefits of choosing a healthy lifestyle. Not only do healthy choices increase your longevity, but also your quality of life, your energy, and your outlook. Health products abound in today’s market, but I believe I have chosen the best ones.  If you have never explored Young Living’s Seed to Seal promise or essential oils, I’d love to share with you what I have discovered on my journey.  Whatever your choices, make them for your health.

ESSENTIAL OILS IN THE WORKPLACE

0

Using essential oils in your business will aid in a healthy environment and encourage wellness among your staff.  One customer shares about her work environment: “I work for a real estate brokerage; and throughout the building, there are a minimum of 4-5 diffusers going at any given time. From everything to enhancing energy to promoting a calm environment, our essential oils play a big role in our day to day operations and mood!”

Here are easy ways to incorporate essential oils in your office.

DIFFUSERS – Placing diffusers at strategic locations in your business can support the immune system of your employees and create a refreshing atmosphere in which to work.  Staff will inhale the fresh scents and boost immunity at the same time.  Thieves essential is a good blend for helping support the immune system. Additionally, depending on which essential oils you chose, you can promote focus, encourage positive moods, and avoid the mid-afternoon slump.  For mood boosting and focus, try diffusing Lemon essential oil.  Instead of that afternoon energy drink or cup of coffee, try some Peppermint aromatherapy. It is an invigorating and refreshing scent.  Working on a deadline?  Is everyone uptight?  Diffuse Stress Away to help promote a calm environment.

THIEVES WATERLESS HAND PURIFIER – We all want to keep our hands clean, especially after a meeting where we have had to shake hands many times. Or maybe after using office tools and machines that are shared by a whole staff.  A quick way to do this is with hand sanitizer; however, normal hand sanitizers aren’t the best option. Synthetic fragrances have been show to disrupt the endocrine system and provoke allergies.  They are drying to the skin, especially in winter months when we are already dry. Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier contains aloe vera to help nourish the skin. Finally, antibiotic resistance is an issue. If you overuse regular hand sanitizers, you can actually lower your resistance because every time you use them, you are killing off the good bacteria along with the bad.  Use Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier instead. It contains essential oils.  And while essential oils are consistent enough to maintain their fragrance and therapeutic properties, each growing year offers mild differences.  These differences are due to soil and weather conditions.  Therefore, Thieves Hand Purifier does not present the same risk of antibiotic resistance from overuse as traditional hand sanitizers.

THIEVES HOUSEHOLD CLEANER, WIPES, AND SPRAY – Common cleaners, sprays, and wipes also contain chemicals and fragrances that are not friendly to our health. Keeping Thieves Wipes and Spray on hand can help promote a healthy workplace. Wipe down desks, office phones, doorknobs, and faucets.  Do you have an office kitchen?  Thieves Household Cleaner is a concentrate. Dilute it in spray bottles and keep several on hand for quick cleanups.  How about the office refrigerator?  Ew!  Thieves can help you there, too.  And while you’re cleaning out the refrigerator, add a cotton ball with drops of Purification essential oil blend to help keep those areas odor free.

Keep Thieves Cleaner in the bathrooms.  A quick spray down will help keep things fresh and clean all day.  Try the Thieves Foaming Hand Soap, too!

DRINK OIL-INFUSED WATER- We all need to drink more water to stay healthy and hydrated.  Adding a citrus essential oil to your water can give you flavor without added calories.  Many like to add Lemon or Lime Vitality to their water.  But there are other Vitality oils—Orange, Tangerine, or Grapefruit Vitality.  Maybe you’d prefer Peppermint or Lavender.  Please use glass or metal beverage containers (not plastic.) Citrus essential oils, especially, should not be used in a plastic beverage container.  The oils break down the toxins in the container, and they bleed into your water.  Also, please make sure the essential oils you add to water are pure and meet GRAS standards.  Young Living markets a separate line of oils called Vitality to help you identify those which are safe for ingestion.  Drinking water with essential oils will actually help cleanse your system, as well as add a pick me up to your day. Be sure to drink plain water, too.

These are just a few ways to create a pleasant office environment and promote wellness at the same time.  Happy Oiling!
