Essentially Empowered

Seriously, Christmas came fast this year and "I ain't mad at it." HA!

Hello friend!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and were able to use your Gratitude oil to be grateful for every moment.

Popping my Inner Defence pills like crazy over here to stay 100% healthy! They have made a HUGE difference. Have you tried them? What has been your most effective product for staying healthy this winter? I will be completely honest with you. While we strive to be 100% healthy, sometimes it just doesn't work out. These past 3 weeks have been pretty rough for us around here. Im sitting here typing this as 3 of the 5 family members are down with the stomach bug. I wonder whats different this year than last when we all were pretty great the whole fall and winter months. I think its a combo of being so busy and stressed with family coming over, parties, the baby teething and forgetting our Ningxia Red. But the good news is; we have everything we need to fight our battles quick. Thank God for the power of plants.

What are your Christmas plans? We have my husbands company Christmas Party the weekend of Dec 7-9 at La Torretta on Lake Conroe. Then on the 14th we are headed to Fredericksburg to go camping with friends for the weekend. Then Monday the 17th we are camping in downtown Austin to do that whole thing, then camping up in Lakeway where we will spend Christmas weekend with my family. Then we head home to Montgomery Texas on the 23rd to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and the day AFTER Christmas with all of Tray's family. Whew!! I'm tired just thinking about it but I'm Super Excited!! We are going light on the presents this year and just really focusing on being with family. Ahhhhhhh.. It sure is making it fun!! Enjoy the newsletter this December. It is pretty full of excellent ideas!!

Oil Promo Descriptions:

Frankincense is good for regeneration and it is known scientifically that it helps your body create new cells that match our DNA! Cool! No wonder it’s a key ingredient in many of Young Living’s skin care products. Frankincense is very grounding and calming and can improve your attitude and lift your spirits.

Uses for frankincense:
– rub on your face for gorgeous glowing skin
– may diminish the appearance of scars
– rub on topically for happy joints, muscles, hands, feet, backs, etc.
– helps boost the immune system
– diffuse during Bible study
– use for focus and calming in children (or adults)
– rub topically over your adrenals and thyroid

D. Gary Young Leader of Essential Oils book (free with a 400pv order)

This book is amazing! Hands down one of my favorite books about Young Living! If you aren’t already in love with the company, this book will seal the deal. It tells of how Young Living began, how Gary discovered new oils, learned how to distill, his commitment to quality, and so much more!

Gathering (free with a 300pv order)

Gathering is perfect to diffuse during all the holiday gatherings coming up! It’s a blend of lavender, geranium, galbanum, frankincense, sandalwood, ylang ylang, spruce, cinnamon bark, and rose.

White Angelica (free with a 250pv order)

White Angelica is one that I use daily! It’s a fantastic blend for staying calm and positive plus it smells fantastic!

Joy (free with a 190pv)

Joy is another favorite blend – it’s so wonderful for uplifting the mood and feeling cheerful. I love to rub this one over my heart or diffuse with some peppermint.

Pine (free with a 190pv Essential Rewards order)

What could be more perfect for Christmas than Pine? If you love the smell of Christmas trees then you’ll love this one! Diffuse or use the nifty diffuser ornament from last month to make your home smell like a Christmas tree farm. I also find all the “tree oils” (pine, spruce, fir, etc.) to be very grounding and calming so they’re great for emotional support.

Lemongrass Vitality (free with a 100pv Essential Rewards order)

Lemongrass uses:
– rub over bladder, lungs, stomach, or on feet/legs
– helps to promote lymph flow
– helps to maintain good circulation
– smells great on dryer balls

CROCKPOT anyone?

Im SO excited for all these recipes. There is something so warm, homey and calming about making soups and crockpot meals in the fall. It's also wonderful to be gone all day and then get home to a freshly cooked meal ready to get in those bellies! Have you ever tried waking up at 6am to cook? Sometimes I will do that and put on my headphones while cooking before everyone gets up. It's really calming, try it! OR while the kitchen is already a mess from cooking dinner, go ahead and assemble the next nights meal the night before in a crockpot and put it in the fridge. Then, before you leave in the morning put it on low and your meal will be perfection by the time you get home!

2. Garlic Oil

Garlic is such an incredible natural antibiotic. You can do many things with making Garlic Oil.

1. You can make a huge batch of this to cook with for better food flavoring. Take note, once exposed to high heat the antibiotic properties have greatly reduced. Then you can add Vitality Oils such as Rosemary, Basil, Oregano, Marjoram, & Black Pepper.

2. Simply make it in small quantities like in this video to use as a natural antibiotic. We had excellent results putting this oil in River's ears when he got an ear infection. I kid you not! He was better in less than 24 hours. But do NOT get the oil on your skin and do NOT add essential Oils to it if you are going to be putting it in your ears.

3. Use butter or ghee instead of the Olive Oil and put it on toast or fresh baked bread.

4. Melt butter, then warm the garlic like in the video, add fresh chopped herbs such as Oregano, Rosemary, Basil and Parsley. Add Sea Salt, Pepper and red pepper flakes. Then pour into a short Mason Jar & cool in the fridge. Give away as Christmas Presents! How FUN!

  5. Use the skewer to carefully poke holes through the ornaments to thread ribbon for hanging.
  6. Let the ornaments air dry for 48 hours.
  7. Thread the ribbon through the hole, add essential oil to the well and allow it to soak in, and then hang!

January 2 - 31st Whole30 Cleanse

December is a very busy month and there is so much to do and so many places to be that it is hard to schedule many classes. But I am fully getting prepared for January. Are you ready to cleanse your body and mind? This philosophy of the Whole30 is excellent. It is by far the best diet that I have come across to help your body reset. The Whole30 diet was created as a means to eliminate groupings of food and help people see where their diet is going wrong by taking out sugars, dairy, lecithins etc. After 30 days you begin to reintroduce foods carefully and observe how the body responds. I would like to invite you to my house for information night and meet your fellow whole30 challengers.

Whole30 Information night

Wednesday, Dec. 12th, 5:45-7:15pm

143 April Wind Dr E Montgomery Texas 77356

RSVPs are enabled for this event.

Whole30 Information night (ONLINE)

Sharing made easy.

This month, I want to encourage you to share your oils with ONE person. Aren't you glad your enroller shared with you?

If we all reach ONE person, we will help so many more people who are struggling to find wellness, purpose, and abundance.

How to share your oils with others?

  • Use your oils in front of your friends or family.
  • Share a sample with a friend in need.
  • Tell your mama, sister, brother, kids, cousin, or neighbor that they NEED their own kit!
  • Listen to what people are telling you they need. Use your reference materials to find some suggestions about what they can use.
  • Show them the value of the kit.
  • Give them your very own member number so they can order their own PSK.

When you help a friend get a PSK, you will get a $50 "Thank you" check* for spreading the love. This is a great way to help others and get some extra holiday money.

The Young Living business opportunity has blessed many families, even families on this very team. They are receiving monthly paychecks that cover their YL products, groceries, car payments, and even mortgages. I didn't think I would ever do this business and it has not only been a blessing for me but it has also changed the lives of those I have shared my oils with and helped order their very own Premium Starter Kit.

Personal Foot Massage

In Yoga today we did a foot massage at the beginning of class. We started by sitting with both legs straight out as if we were about to do a seated forward fold. We first tried to spread our toes and flex our feet (the opposite of pointing the toes). BOY were mine tight! So we did a quick massage of our feet and then did the toe stretches again and WOW! What a difference! If Im at home I would use Relaxation Massage Oil because its amazing!
