It is finally FALL and guess what that means in our house… Lots of yummy cooking and delicious smells and full bellies! One of my favorite essential oils to cook with throughout the Fall season is Cinnamon Bark Vitality—which is FREE during the month of October when you place an order of at least 100PV.
Cinnamon Bark Vitality has a unique, delicious, spicy flavor and did you know that Cinnamon Bark Vitality can not only help maintain a healthy immune system, but also supports the digestive system. This actually makes a lot of sense because, as we discussed last month, 70-80% of our immune system lives in our digestive tract.
Cinnamon Bark Vitality is very high in the naturally occurring chemical constituent Trans-Cinnamaldehyde. Cinnamaldehyde is a flavonoid and is what gives cinnamon it’s flavor and odor. Cinnamon is known to be loaded with antioxidants and Cinnamon Bark essential oil is steam distilled from the outer parts of the bark of the cinnamon tree.
There are so many ways I love to use Cinnamon Bark Vitality in the kitchen: a tiny drop in mashed sweet potatoes, a little in my pumpkin pie recipe, a wonderful addition to Einkorn Pumpkin Bread, and finally, it is wonderful to add a drop to roasted pumpkin seeds—we will share this recipe later in the month.
As a quick reminder, because essential oils are 100-10,000 time more potent than herbs, I would always start small when cooking with essential oils; you don’t want to overpower your recipe. I love to use a toothpick. I simply dip it in the orifice of the essential oil, and then I am able to start small and grow the flavor of the dish little by little.
There is no wrong way to cook or bake with Cinnamon Bark Vitality and I am excited for you to experience this wonderful essential oil in your kitchen this Fall!
Essential oils for the Zombie Apocalypse
We like to think there’s an oil for every situation, even ridiculous fictional ones! That’s why, oils in hand, we’re prepared for any kind of zombie apocalypse—whether we’re dance-fighting Michael Jackson Thriller-types or creating a band of scrappy survivors, Walking Dead-style. With your oil collection at your side, you’ll be ready to take on anything the undead have to send your way.*
Zombie Apocalypse essential oils
Brain Power Essential Oil Young LivingHow will you fare when you find out?
♦ Something seems out of sorts. An eerie quiet. Better clear your head with the fresh aroma of Brain Power™.
♦ You turn on the television to see what’s going on, but your favorite newscaster has been replaced with a group of aimlessly wandering bodies who look…strange. Your years of dedication to monster movies pays off. You immediately reach for a bottle of Stress Away™ and take a deep breath. You’re going to need a calm, peaceful minute as you prepare for what comes next.
Thieves Vitality♦ Before you pack your zombie survival kit for your apocalyptic runaway, take a veggie capsule with Thieves® Vitality™.* You don’t know how it will do against zombies, but you’re going to need all the wellness support you can get.
♦ If you know one thing about zombies—and, fortunately, in true horror movie fashion, you know the perfect amount for this situation—it’s that they’re not as slow as they seem. Massage your muscles after miles of running from zombies and make sure to keep a Deep Relief™ Roll-On in your backpack to provide the ultimate cooling comfort.
Zombie Apocalypse essential oils
Valor Essential Oil
Whether coming through the door or a few blocks back, it’s time for fight or flight. Keep these essentials with your zombie survival gear:

♦ Should you encounter a horde of zombies, you’ll need every bit of courage you can summon. Bolster your inner hero with positivity and the scent of Valor®.
♦ If you fight a zombie with actual fire—a risky but often effective move—you can also use the uplifting aroma of Light the Fire™ to motivate yourself to keep going.
Zombie Apocalypse essential oils
You haven’t had to hole up alone. You and a pack of survivors have created an unruly party that thus far can fend off the dead ones.
Purification♦ Before food raids become necessary, take a shot of NingXia Nitro® to give your body and mind the energy levels you’ll need to be alert on this treacherous mission.
♦ We’ve heard it from our members before: Is there any odor Purification® can’t tackle? Put it to the ultimate test by diffusing it to keep the scent of zombie flesh from tainting your hideout.
♦ If you don’t know how much time you have left on Earth, it may be wise to tap into your spiritual side with some conscious mindfulness. Create the perfect environment for connection with Sacred Mountain™ essential oil blend.
Zombie Apocalypse essential oils
Acceptance essential oil
You tried. Unfortunately, your fate was to be with the undead. Fortunately, we’ve even got oils to help you process that.
♦ When faced with a new stage in life, you can replace the negative beliefs with uplifting thoughts—perhaps being a zombie won’t be so bad after all! Try diffusing Transformation™ as you make the best of your new existence.
♦ In fact, not only is being a zombie not so bad, you’re a darn good zombie! You’ve already got four new zombies in your downline! Numerous aimless walks and the aroma of Acceptance™ have helped you recognize your self-worth, and you’re seeing the best you, human or no.

Which essential oil helps you feel ready to face anything, even the zombie apocalypse?
The Thieves line is full of clean, plant-based products you can use with confidence around your children, family, pets, and friends. Two of these products are the Thieves Foaming Handsoap and Thieves Spray. BOTH products are incredible and should be used in your homes and life EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.!
The Thieves Foaming Hand Soap is an absolute staple in my home. I have it at every sink and have become addicted to washing my hands, and my toddler’s hands. It has an instant-foam formula, which makes it appealing and easy to use for ‘little ones’. My little girl loves her ‘bubbly soap’! It leaves our skin feeling super clean but NOT dry—something I have always been picky about. Of course, the soap is infused with Young Living’s proprietary Thieves Blend—a mix of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary, as well as extra Lemon and orange essential oil. It contains no sulfates, dyes, synthetic fragrances, or harsh chemicals.
Having the Thieves Foaming Hand Soap in my home has made it VERY easy and convenient to share Young Living with friends and family in an organic way. My father-in-law is now OBSESSED with Thieves Hand Soap ever since he used it for the first time in my home. He’s CONVERTED!
The other product we mentioned is the Thieves Spray. This convenient spray is perfect for quick touch up cleaning and travel. It is so easy to use and able to use on virtually any surface. I always travel with it in my carry on—planes are full of germs and disgusting smells—I love spraying it on the seat tray, air vent, headrest, and I even take it into the restroom to use on the toilet and sink handles. Once I get to the hotel, I use it in the bathtub, vanity, counters, phone, and even my bed and pillows. I also always have it in my desk drawer, purse, and my soccer coaching bag. I love the way it smells and spray it in my cleats and bag after a long practice. Hopefully you get the idea—- I use this stuff everywhere!
Here are a few ideas of where you can use your Thieves Spray:
• Light switches
• Kitchen sinks
• Door knobs
• Public toilet seats
• Bathroom counters
• Smelly shoes
• Inside cars or cup holders
With the seasons changing, kids back in school, and extracurricular activities, these should be products that are included on your E.R. order this month! You will love the products, and even better—your kids will love them too!
I start my day with Super C along with NingXia Red. Super C is free this month with 300 PV on Essential Rewards.
As the seasons start to change, it’s important to support your immune system! Super C™ chewable tablets contain 250 percent of the recommended daily amount of vitamin C per serving! Super C also combines pure Orange essential oil with a proprietary blend of camu camu, acerola, cherry, and rose hip fruit powder to create a powerful, immune-supporting supplement. Together, these premium ingredients deliver polyphenols, carotenoids, and optimal amounts of vitamin C in a convenient, DELICIOUS chewable tablet. No one, not even your picky children, will complain about taking these because they taste so good!
Below are some interesting facts about the ingredients and why they were chosen for this product:
Camu camu is harvested by hand from canoes in the Amazon region of South America. It contains phenolics, antioxidants, and amino acids.
Rose hip contains vitamin C and is rich in carotenoids and phenolics. Europeans have used it in herbal teas for many years because of its rich vitamin C content.
Super C contains whole-fruit powders and no added fructose, which makes it taste great and a great option to support children and adults.
Don’t miss out on getting your FREE bottle with every 300 PV order this month!
