Essential Oil Tips

7 essential oil tips for weight management

Managing your weight can be a challenge; we know there are long-term health benefits to eating well and moving our bodies—no matter what the scale may say—but it can be discouraging if you’re working hard and not seeing results. Infuse your weight-management plan with these essential oil tips to boost your efforts.

1. Use Grapefruit Vitality™ essential oilGrapefruit Vitality Essential Oil - Young Living

If you’re looking for the right essential oil for weight management, Grapefruit Vitality should be at the top of your list. Grapefruit Vitality essential oil supports weight management when used in conjunction with healthy eating and regular exercise, has cleansing properties, and can support your lymphatic system!* Try a drop or two in your water each morning or put 2 drops in a veggie capsule to get Grapefruit Vitality’s support.

2. Catch some ZZZs

Did you know that a lack of proper sleep can lead to weight gain? Make sure you’re getting the rest you need by creating a snooze-worthy environment for shut-eye. Diffuse 3 drops of Lavender essential oil and 2 drops of Cedarwood essential oil before tucking in for the night, and check out our post for more helpful tips on getting a better night’s sleep.

3. Add some Slique®

Young Living’s Slique system is formulated to promote healthy weight management.* Slique® CitraSlim™ includes a proprietary essential oil blend for weight management, which some studies suggest may help support the body in burning excess fat when used in conjunction with a balanced diet and regular exercise. The proprietary blend may also support the release of free fatty acids, which may help break down fat.* ** Young Living’s Slique product line also includes Slique Essence, Slique Shake, Slique Tea, Slique Bars, and Slique Gum—a whole Slique System to support you in your weight-management goals!

4. Stay hydrated

Another way to use Young Living essential oils for weight management is by boosting your water intake. A drop of your favorite Vitality essential oil can motivate you to drink more water throughout the day. Find your favorite, like Lemon, Lime, Peppermint, or Citrus Fresh™ Vitality essential oils, or create a combination that inspires you to take more sips of H2O all day long.

5. Beat your cravings

When it’s difficult to resist something sweet or salty, opt for a healthful alternative to candy bars and potato chips. Try these essential oil-infused chocolate energy balls or apple chips, or seek out recipes to swap healthy ingredients into not-so-healthy recipes.

6. Get up and move

One of the best tips for weight management is to keep moving. You don’t need to be a gym rat, but it’s critical to change up a sedentary lifestyle. Opt for stairs instead of the elevator, park on the far end of the parking lot, and take time to stretch throughout the day. If you’re having trouble with motivation, try diffusing Citrus Fresh or Peppermint essential oil to help add a little pep to your step. Using essential oils to help your weight management can often be about finding ones with energizing aromas!

7. Start your day rightBest overnight chia bowl recipe with essential oils

Kick-start your metabolism with a healthy breakfast! If you’re looking for a weight-management success story—essential oils or no—you’ll find they all have one thing in common: committed, healthy choices. Beginning your morning with a conscious, healthy decision sets the stage for continued positive choices all day long. Try starting with an overnight chia bowl!

Vitality Oils

Which essential oils are safe to ingest?

It’s a common question and one you’ve probably had yourself: Which essential oils are safe to ingest? It can be hard to know if ingesting essential oils is safe; from Pinterest to YouTube, you’ll find thousands of different answers. We know how important essential oil safety is and that nothing is more critical than choosing the right products for you and your family, so we’ve got all the information you need to know about the internal use of essential oils.

Essential oils explained

Let’s start at the beginning. Essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts, with a single drop containing the equivalent constituents of several plants. So while the important benefits we find in nature are valuable and important, it’s also critical to remember that too much of a good thing is a bad thing. For instance, while we all need water every day to live and thrive, too much could lead to water toxicity. Similarly, using too much of an essential oil can result in negative effects. That’s why the directions on the label are so important; they maximize safety and the benefit of the oil, while minimizing any potential reactions.

essential oils you can ingest

This begs the question, however: Which essential oils are safe to ingest? You always want to make sure that the essential oils you choose to use internally are the purest available and that they come from plants that are safe for human consumption. Fortunately, Young Living has a line of essential oils specifically labeled for internal use with directions on how to do so safely. There’s no difference in purity and authenticity when it comes to our Vitality™ oils and our topical/aromatic oils, but our Vitality line is clearly labeled for internal use. When used in the proper, instructed amounts, Young Living Vitality oils provide you the freedom to share and explore essential oils in nutritious and delicious ways!

If you want the safe way to ingest essential oils, try the tips below using some of our favorite Vitality oils. Be sure to follow the label instructions so you always know the correct amount of essential oil to ingest and so you know that you’re choosing safe essential oils for internal use.

YL safety tip: When ingesting essential oils in the Vitality line, always follow the label instructions and never exceed the amount suggested. Also, keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult a health professional prior to use.

Though many have used oils that are not in the Young Living Vitality lineinternally with success, current regulatory guidelines and research indicate that the Vitality line is an up-to-date offering of essential oils that are safe for ingestion when label directions are followed.

What essential oils do you use in your laundry

Know Your Farmer, Know Your Supplier

Know your farmer, know your supplier…

I love Amazon Prime and I love essential oils. BUT GUYS!!! The two don’t mix. Remember- friends don’t let friends buy crap.

You blew my phone up with questions about all sorts of Brand questions. Which is funny because you know I am bias. But also it’s an honor because it means you know I’ll shoot you straight. I thought I’d share some facts about essential oils.

💧Essential oils have become popular. And every single company is coming out with their own line of oils. TJ Maxx, Target, Kohl’s and my beloved Amazon. This is certainly an instance where you get what you pay for.

💧You are not guaranteed what you are getting is actually pure essential oil and not synthetic junk. There is not very much regulation on the essential oils industry. So the words “100% pure” or “Certified” mean nada. You need more then words.

💧Research is vital. Legit-CALL the Company. Ask questions. Where is your oil coming from? How do they farm? Do they purchase from a vendor? How do they test and regulate that vendor? Here is what you need to look for: No gmo seeds, no chemicals ever used on soil or plants, ethically sourced plants harvested at the proper time and plants are distilled at a low pressure and low temperature. If you’re purchasing through a friend ASK them! They should be able to provide this information and resources.

💧The oily world is big… and growing. It can be an overwhelming world to navigate. One of the huge benefits of Young living is the education. The resources and community are second to none. You cant get me with your Amazon oils. 😉

What we put on and in our bodies has an effect on our health. Young Living is the world leader in essential oils turned lifestyle company.They lead the pack because of their purity and commitment standards and sustainability. Young Living gives me peace of mind and complete confidence that I am doing the best for my most precious people.

I love you. I want good for you. So friendly PSA. Grab the Instant Pot or the Bose headphones but skip that Oily Amazon deal of the day. Let me hook you up.

I borrowed this post from a friend, because everything she said in it is true and to the point.

What is a cleansing oil?




What is a cleansing oil, and how does it work?

Have you ever thought, How will an oil clean oil off my face? Won’t it make my skin more oily? Traditional cleansers can strip your skin of oil and leave it dry. This encourages your skin to produce more pore-clogging oil. The oil cleansing method uses clarifying and cleansing oils to remove makeup and impurities while softening and moisturizing the skin. Just like the basic chemistry concept of “like dissolves like,” oil will dissolve oil. And oil alone will not produce blemishes. Breakouts are a result of many factors, including hormones, bacteria, and dead skin cells. Your skin naturally lubricates itself with oil, and it naturally produces oil because it needs it.

Mirah™ Luminous Cleansing Oil is made to remove makeup and other products that leave residue on your face. It’s gentle on your skin and tough on pore-clogging buildup to improve texture and leave your skin glowing. Mirah Luminous Cleansing Oil:

• Removes impurities like makeup and water-resistant sunscreen
• Won’t clog pores
• Rinses clean with water and leaves no heavy, oily residue
• Softens and moisturizes
• Formulated for all skin types
• 100 percent plant-based and naturally derived ingredients
• Vegan
• Not tested on animals
• Formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, petrochemicals, animal-derived ingredients, synthetic preservatives, synthetic fragrances, or synthetic dyes/colorants

The carefully selected essential oils and carrier oils in this product easily remove stubborn makeup, dirt, and grease while also providing deep hydration without clogging pores. It contains powerful ingredients, including:

• Luxury oils such as babassu, watermelon, and marula
• Jojoba seed oil to remove makeup and help skin retain moisture without clogging pores
• Argan oil, which has a high percentage of fatty acids and antioxidants and supports healthy-looking skin
• Sacred Sandalwood, Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Lemon, Coriander, Roman Chamomile, and Rose essential oils
• Joy™ essential oil blend

How do you use it?

Simply massage 2-3 pumps into skin for one minute, rinse with water and wash cloth and pat dry to reveal fresh, moisturized, glowing skin.

Better Together: Discover The Power of Community


Better Together is a unique book on the foundations of community and why God’s design for humanity was always for us to be together. Rusty George is an introvert who is annoyed by people more than he is amazed by them. I can relate to that kind of believer because I enjoy doing life with fellow believers.

Exercise, Eat right, Share your faith, Produce fruit for God, ever feel like success in life is all about you? And even trying to “die to self” only makes you more self consumed? The author gives us tools to “do life together,” we all need to lean on others in time of need and bring people into our everyday life. Together we connect with God better! Together we heal better! Together we overcome fears, raise families, fight temptations, and bless the world better. There are over one hundred passages in the bible where the words let us are used. We need to encourage each other and serve one another. Jesus found life and mission are better done together, than so should we.

I highly recommend the book if you truly want to walk the life that we all should be doing each day. We are all trapped in a self imposed prison of isolation while we complain about being alone, but the door is locked from inside. We all desire authentic relationships and we need to not let things get in the way.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Which Soap Are You Using?

Did you know 95% of our immune system is in our gut??

Did you know that by washing the good bacteria off our hands with antibacterial soap it can cause us harm our gut’s good flora and immune system??

Wash your hands, but just use regular soap and use friction of a towel to stay healthy!!

Need an additional benefit then use Thieves hand purifier to keep wellness in your home!! It allows the good and rids the bad!!!!8854E900-A7BF-4348-A556-A79B48E2B1D9
