Yes, Young Living is a complete life style, from essential oils to supplements to Einkorn flour. The granola makes a perfect snack.

What is Einkorn, and how is it different from regular wheat? Einkorn is an ancient heirloom grain that has remained untouched by hybridization. It is the original “staff-of-life” grain, known as the oldest variety of wheat, which dates back to the beginning of time. History suggests that wild einkorn grain was harvested in the late Paleolithic and early Mesolithic Ages, 16,000–15,000 BC, making it the oldest variety of wheat ever cultivated!

Wheat today is not what it used to be. The wheat we eat is not the wheat our ancestors ate or even our grandparents! Wheat today has been hybridized to make genetic variations in color, composition, appearance, and other qualities. Hybridization increases yield but does not increase nutritional value. Wheat has also been hybridized with high amounts of gluten because of gluten’s ability to help bread rise. Because of hybridization, wheat today has a total of 42 chromosomes, while einkorn wheat only has 14, suggesting its purity and most natural state.

More and more people are suffering of digestive issues, gluten intolerance, and allergies from consuming hybridized wheat. This is why Gary Young made it his mission to find the best alternative! Einkorn’s natural genetic code and lower levels of gluten make it a superior choice because of the compatibility with the human body when compared to the modern hybrid wheat of today. Einkorn grain is easier to digest, so nutrients are better absorbed.

Today, Young Living is helping to bring einkorn back to its rightful prominence in the world. Young Living offers many einkorn products, including flour, spaghetti, pasta, waffle and pancake mixes, and granola.

One of our favorite products is Gary’s True Grit® Einkorn Spaghetti. What are some of your favorite ways to use einkorn?

Slique Essence

 

AF0DE970-5B51-47AC-B037-1E2B8CA255E1

Each month my goal is to add a new oil to my Essential Rewards. This month I added Slique Essence, looking forward to getting my “monthly box” and adding two drops to NingXia Red or water.

Who is ready to join me and jump start 2018 with the Slique Kit?

Slique Essence combines grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, spearmint, and ocotea with stevia extract in a unique blend that supports healthy weight management goals. These ingredients work together to help control hunger*, especially when used in conjunction with Slique Tea or the Slique Kit. The pleasant citrus combination of grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon essential oils adds a flavorful and uplifting element to any day with the added support of spearmint that may help with digestion.* Ocotea essential oil adds an irresistible, cinnamon-like aroma to help control hunger, while stevia adds an all-natural sweetener that provides a pleasant taste with no added calories.

 

Awesome Facial Product

My routine each evening and morning consists of using Young Living’s facial product. Satin Facial Scrub is like a spa in a container and leaves my face feeling awesome. This product is currently out of stock, but in Young Living fashion the alternative I use is Orange Blossom face wash. One bottle can last me at least 4-6 months.

I love that no matter the product with YL there is AlWAYS an option, so if a product is out of stock I know I will have options.

Today is the day to ditch ALL your products that you use to wash your face and SWITCH to products that are much better for your skin!
