Aroma Life for high blood pressure

We realized that about a year ago, Toby had stage 1 high blood pressure. High blood pressure runs in his family so it wasn't much of a surprise. Lavender and Aroma Life are both oils that can be used to help lower blood pressure. Because lavender is cheaper, we tried that first...with some changes but not enough. We got a bottle of Aroma Life. Within a week we starting noticing a bigger change than the lavender gave us. It was amazing! He continued to use it until he ran out of the oil. We decided to see if his blood pressure would remain normal without using the oil. That is one of the many benefits of essential oils, sometimes it just takes a bit to correct the problem and then it is no longer needed. So far he has been off the oil for about 2 months and his blood pressure is remaining the same. I am posting Toby's blood pressure numbers so you can see what we saw.

In case I haven't said it before, I love the oils! :)

Tidbits from a book I'm reading

I started reading, Embraced by the Essence by Dr. Marcy Foley. While the book is not promoted by Young Living oils, the author references and mainly uses Young Living products. I thought I would share some interesting things I have learned about oils from this book...most are direct quotes.

The law says essential oils can be called pure if they contain only 5% or more pure essential oil. Only pure, top quality, unadulterated, uncut essential oils have therapeutic value.

Essential oils go into the body and enhance the ability of the body to do what it is supposed to do naturally.

Essential oils are multifunctional so that they have a wide spectrum of application. They work for the need that is present.

They can affect an organ in 3-5 seconds from contact to results. Essential oils stay in the body about 20min to 2 hours and leave no residuals. While oils are not accumulative in the body, their frequency and effect is cumulative.

There is a very interesting chapter on the frequency of our body and oils and how they work. However, that will be another post as I don't want to overwhelm you with new information.

Free Product? Well, not really but it's still a good deal :)

I know if you try Young Living Oils that you will like them. While I can't afford to give everyone a free product-I wish I could...I can do the next best thing. I have an automatic order that goes through on the 11th of every month. So, if there is a product that you want to try out, you can order ONE item through me. The benefit of this is that you can get "preferred customer" pricing (24% discount) and a discount on s&h. I need to know by NOV 8th what product you would like to try. Your price is the "preferred customer" price listed and then depending on how many people order, add $1-2 for s&h. If you do not live near me, I can ship it to you but you will have to pay the full cost of shipping.

Young Living also has nutritional supplements, health & beauty products and cleaning products.

Please, don't hesitate to message/call me if you have a question. Maybe you are trying to get your high blood pressure lowered and you need help finding an oil or maybe you just need help knowing where and how to apply the oil. Please ask! Finding the right oil and apply it correctly is the only way it will truly work for you.

Anyone can order product from Young Living without being a member, you just pay more for each product. Most clubs want you to pay a membership fee however, Young Living actually gives you product for paying the membership fee. There are several kits you can choose from so you are able to get product that you want. After buying a kit, you get a 24% discount on product. You only have to place a $50 order each year (can be over multiple orders) to continue your membership.

You can find Young Living products here:

Need a unique Christmas present?

I received my Young Living Holiday catalog with my oil order this month. I was excited to see this new product, ceramic diffuser necklace. The necklace slowly diffuses your favorite oil throughout the day. I think this could benefit so many people that need/use the oils on a daily basis.

I was thinking this would be great for children who could benefit from using Brain Power or Peace and calming. Now, these oils can be with them all day! Can you think of another great use for this necklace? Why not buy it as a gift for that special someone and pair it with their favorite oil! Only $19.66 for preferred customers. Not a preferred customer? Message me to find out how.

Cold & Flu season is you have your Thieves?

FYI: I am copying and pasting most of this straight from Young Living brochures...

Apply Thieves oil to the bottoms of your feet during cold and flu season to help boost your immune system. A bottle of Thieves oil is $31.75, much cheaper than a doctor visit and much healthier than any cold medicine. Of course this price is wholesale which is really easy to achieve! Otherwise anyone can purchase a bottle for about $10 more...These bottles last a long time even though they are small.

Here is a testimony from a young living oil lover:
My daughter visited the day she started a one week flu and I visited her when it came back. Next day I started feeling sore throat, dry cough, nausea, stomach cramps and all over aches.

I immediately rubbed Thieves all over my neck and throat, put one drop of Thieves directly on my tongue and touched the roof of my mouth with it. Next I took 1 oz. of Ningxa red. After three applications and two days all my symptoms were gone. It has been one week.

The Monsters in Wyatt's room.

As most of you know, we have been dealing with night terrors with Wyatt. I was initially using the lavendar oil which helps Wyatt calm down and fall asleep. But then he started a few months back waking up within the first hour or so that he was asleep, crying, screaming, etc. The look in his eyes were horrible, it was like he was seeing something scary but we couldn't see it. I did a lot of research and decided to try the peace and calming oil. I wanted something that would put positive thoughts into his dreams. We have been using it for a little over a week now. I could tell a difference immediately. Even if he woke up, he would maybe just cry for a minute but I could easily get him back to sleep. Sometimes he didn't wake at all!! Then, about 4 or 5 days ago, he became scared to sleep in his room, especially to fall asleep in his room. I asked him why and he said because the monsters were going to get him. So, mama made him some monster juice, a spray bottle with water, lavendar oil and peace and calming oil. I told him we would spray his room before he went to bed and that would get rid of the monsters. I also gave him a flashlight and told him to use it if any monsters do get in...they don't like light. :) So far the combination of everything seems to be working very well and Wyatt fell asleep (after the 3rd night of monster juice) in his bed alone...with the flashlight of course. :)

Di-Gize for digestion & reflux problems

My husband has been using Di-Gize for a few months now. As most of you know, he recently had surgery for a hiatal hernia. Basically, he had constant reflux due to his stomach coming up through his esophagus. About a month and a half before he had his surgery, he started taking 2 drops of Di-Gize in a capsule filled the rest of the way with olive oil (they recommend 1 drop but since his was so severe he did 2 drops). He noticed a difference within a few weeks. He stopped taking his over the counter med and was just taking the Di-Gize. He has had his surgery now and he continued to take it for a few weeks. The DR. told him to continue with his meds because until everything healed he could still have some problems. If you suffer from reflux on a regular basis, this might be the natural cure for you. It's also great for stomach aches. I used it on Wyatt one night. Instead of reaching for the mylicon drops, I used the Di-Gize and rubbed a few drops on and around his belly button. Within minutes he farted a few times and went back to sleep. If you are interested in purchasing, scroll down a few posts where I tell you how to order. It costs us $32 a bottle but we also get the wholesale price. Because you are using such little everyday, this bottle does last quite a while. This really is a great oil!
