January 2019

Essentially Empowered

New Beginnings....

January always starts as such a wonderful time of year. That little break between Christmas and New Years is vital for us to "Tidy Up" and get ready for real life to start back up again with beautiful spring time on the horizon. This year, I decided to start the Whole30 (Nutrition Program) at the beginning of December. I've been completely thrilled with the results as I went through the holidays feeling balanced, toned and energetic. It was the perfect lead into the new year and I love it so much that I am continuing on with it into January. Last year I remember in mid February feeling tired, puffy, bloated and unfocused. I want to head into spring feeling better! Well, guess what? I feel fantastic!!

Now to get the mind and spirit back on track. A few years ago we started a tradition to watch some of our favorite Christian movies in January. Those movies are War Room, Courageous and Fireproof. War Room is my absolute FAVORITE though!! We have our own little War Room in the house, but of course, it's a little dusty. That's what the new year is for though, right? To get back on track!! My prayers for you reading this, is that you will keep your body, mind and spirit healthy this year.

If you have never felt what it truly feels like to be free from all the pain, inflammation and other chronic issues our bodies go through, reach out to me and I can add you to our (free) Whole30 group! And, for those Young Living members, we sure have some amazing supplements to support the process! Happy Winter! Get out in the SUN whenever the opportunity presents itself!


XOXO,

Amy Cassels

Oil Promo Descriptions:

➕ Digize Vitality 5 ml (ER exclusive): As the name states, this oil is fantastic for supporting healthy digestion. I often like to tell people that oils are most effective when continuously used and I still stand by that but this oil is instant gratification for most people . Your tummy is feeling off? Over ate? Use it and sweet relief within minutes ! Some love this directly dropped under their tongue or massaged on the stomach. Did you know many of Young Living's farms actually use this blend on the soil to encourage good bacterial balance in our farms' dirt!? Cool Right! And let’s get real, after holiday eating, I’m gonna need this extra support!

➕ Citrus Fresh 15 ml (Essential Rewards Exclusive ) : This oil is a blend of many of our citrus oils and spearmint so there is a subtle minty aroma with the citrus scents and it’s gorgeous . It’s a happy oil, diffuser this blend to lift your spirits on a winter day. Also when diffuser this oil helps to open up the creative thinking part of your brain. One combo to try is to diffuse this with Clarity. Also available as a Vitality oil, this oil is wonderful to add to water to help flush toxins out. Anyone doing a cleanse this January or joining the Slique Challenge? Mix Citrus Fresh and Ledum in a bottle, put a roller top on it and rub over areas where you store fat. Trust me on this! You’re welcome in advance.

➕Life 9 Probiotic: did you know this word literally means 'for life'? Although good bacteria should be found all through the digestive system, the microbes are mostly concentrated in the far end of the small intestine & in the large intestine. For this reason, we appreciate that Life9 capsules are made with a special delayed release covering- ensuring that your good bacteria supplementation gets where it needs to go and isn't wasted. In pregnancy, our guts start colonizing this good bacteria if our moms provide the environment to do so. Vaginal birth further contributes, then breastfeeding continues to help these good microbes & a diet rich in plant & fermented foods as we grow. Reason why supplementing these good bacteria is key in our modern world is because it's rare to find rich soil to grow our food to start with. Picking food before it's peak ripeness affects this too, as does treating the soil and harsh washing of produce. Furthermore, stress, medications, illness, sugar and grain consumption, along w/ modern day chemicals all serve to deplete these stores. It's no wonder research shows that most north Americans are chronically deficient in probiotics that play key roles in prevention of preventable illness & disease from birth to old age. Making these a key part of your daily wellness regimen should be a no brainer!

➕Longevity 15 ml: (This is just like the supplement but not in the capsule.) And since Longevity Capsule are out of stock, we can make our own!! Let me tell you some info I have written about the supplement: Did you know Longevity protects DHA levels for brain function and cardiovascular health, promotes healthy cell regeneration, supports the liver, increases immune function, and strengthens the nervous system. This blend contains that following essential oils: Thyme, Orange, Clove and Frankincense. Basically...anti- aging + immune system support + toxin flusher! If you're not using this...you should be! The oil blend is also amazing for your skin - Friends FRANKINCENSE and CLOVE on your face. Y’all know Clove is the highest antioxidant on earth right?!

➕Panaway 5ml: Your best friend for tired muscles !! Who is starting a new workout routine or just getting more active in the New Year?! You’ll use this! One of our faves from the starter kit. From moms who carry babies on their hips all day, to the gym goer, to anyone who deals with head or neck tension, this oil Is your jam!

How to harness the cleansing power of essential oils


Adding essential oils to your skin care routine is easier than you think! Here are a handful of ways you can use our six skin-cleansing favorites.


  • Add 1-2 drops of essential oil to your face wash every morning for daily cleansing.


  • Mix a penny-size amount of raw honey with 1 drop of oil in your hand. Massage over your face and let sit 5-10 minutes before rinsing.


  • Combine ½ cup of colloidal oatmeal with 7 drops of essential oil. Stir well. To use, mix ½-1 teaspoon of your new facial wash with a little water and apply it to wet skin. Rinse thoroughly.


  • Blend 1 drop of oil with 4 drops of V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex and use a cotton ball to apply the solution to your freshly washed face.


  • Create your own facial mist spray with 2 ounces of water and 10-20 drops of essential oil.


  • Make a DIY toner by filling a 3-ounce glass bottle with witch hazel and adding 10-15 drops of oil. Shake before applying with a cotton ball.

Essential oils that cleanse the skin


1. Tea Tree

Tea Tree is a true multitasker—it moisturizes as it cleanses! The purifying properties of this essential oil make it one of our top picks, especially for those who have oily or blemish-prone skin. Speaking of blemishes, try applying 1 drop to a cotton swab and use it as a spot treatment to help reduce the appearance of bothersome blemishes!

BTW, it’s in this product: Maximum Strength Acne Treatment


2. Geranium

Want to know the secret to beautiful, glowing skin? Geranium essential oil. A secret no longer, you can “go for the glow” at home by adding a few drops of this potent oil to your current skin care routine. You’ll find it harder to spot those uneven areas but easier to see healthier, radiant-looking skin!


3. Frankincense

No skin care list would be complete without Frankincense. Use this one if you like an oil with an earthy, uplifting aroma and the power to reduce the appearance of uneven skin tones. With Frankincense, a fresh, dewy glow is only an essential oil bottle away!

BTW, it’s in this product: ART® Gentle Cleanser


4. Grapefruit

Citrus lovers, unite! Our cold-pressed Grapefruit essential oil is a treat for the senses and the skin. Add this citrusy oil to your favorite skin care products to enjoy its sweet, invigorating scent as you cleanse. As an added bonus, you’ll also enjoy silky, soft, smooth-looking skin.*


5. Orange

As surprising as it seems, you can use Orange essential oil for oily skin. Apply Orange to oily areas, including that pesky T-zone, before bed and see if you don’t wake up with skin that appears smoother and more balanced. Your baby-soft skin will thank you for using this citrusy oil.*

BTW, it’s in this product: Charcoal Bar Soap


6. Blue Tansy

Meet your nighttime routine’s new best friend! Like a true best friend, Blue Tansy is all about making you feel your best. As your skin care sidekick, this essential oil is all about helping reduce the appearance of blemishes while it cleanses and beautifies the skin. Make sure to dilute it though! Its rich, blue color is beautiful in the bottle but might leave a mark if you apply it undiluted.

**PLEASE WAIT 12 hour before going in the sun after using Citrus Oils**

#1 January 2 - 31st Whole30 Cleanse

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. We have already started but you can join in anytime!!

Self Care:

A morning routine might be the most important thing you do in a day. A solid morning routine will set you up for success throughout the rest of your day. It will make you feel GREAT and ready to tackle the world. Spend a half an hour a day taking care of yourself and you will optimize your productivity all day long.

I have come up with ten activities for you to accomplish in the morning. They will set you up for success, which is why you should incorporate these practice into your daily routine.

  1. Make your bed
  2. Drink a glass of water right when you wake up
  3. Take a Lemon Juice and a Young Living NingXia Red Shot
  4. Wash your face and brush your teeth
  5. Take your Vitamins
  6. Eat a balanced breakfast
  7. Exercise or take a little time to move, stretch, foam roll, etc.
  8. Pamper yourself (use a skin brush, take a bath, or exfoliate with a coffee skin scrub)
  9. Take three deep breaths
  10. Find gratitude in your life/journal

Relationships with others:

Whether you are spending time with your kids, enjoying a girls night in, or catching up with some friends, cultivating deep, intentional relationships with others is important for growth and balance in your life.

Take a look at your “relationship with others” ranking on your wellness wheel. If your relationship with others section is at a 6 or lower, now is the time to invest some energy in cultivating strong relationships.


TIME WITH FAMILY

Finding time and space for family and maintaining those relationships is crucial for a balanced life. Setting boundaries and carving out a specific time each day can help you keep your family time sacred. Here are a few tips:

  1. Apply or diffuse Present Time essential oil to help you focus on the here and now, so you can get beyond the past and move forward while re-establishing your boundaries and committing to family time in 2019.

  1. Be vocal to your friends and team members about what time of the day you are turning off your phone and checking out of social media. Write down your three non-negotiables and stick to them!

  1. Don’t be so quick with your answers when your team reaches out with questions. This sounds harsh but if you set the expectation with your team that you will get back to them during your business hours, it will empower them to look for the answers first and practice patience and respect with your boundaries. This can be applied to many scenarios!


TIME WITH FRIENDS

“We are the average of the five people we associate with most.” Reflect on that for a moment. Who is in your tight circle? Who is your tribe? Are they positive, motivated, excited about life, about the future, about their goals? If not, start to invest your energy in surrounding yourself with more positive people. Invite them to a girls night out and get ready together with Young Living Savvy minerals makeup or plan a night in cooking or crafting.
