What is it about clove that makes it an Autumn favorite? It just smells and tastes like a cooler month’s season!
When I was little, summer seemed to whiz by (and that was back when school started back around Labor Day week!)….. nowadays, it’s a blink and a nod, and kids (at least in our area) start back to school next week. Can you believe it? Happy August friends!
Here’s the scoop on the gift-with-purchase goodness to start the month off right!
Ginger vitality: I don’t recall seeing this one as a freebie before, and if it’s not one in your arsenal/wellness tool bag , let’s chat for a sec. Ginger, first and foremost calms queasy stomachs….. A drop or two in hot water for Ginger tea……. sneak it into lunch boxes in the form of healthy gingersnap cookies (lots of recipes out there…. add a little extra oomph with a few drops of Ginger to the batter . Fragrance-wise…. did you know that the aroma of ginger is historically known to promote feelings of courage? Makes sense, right?…. A queasy stomach often results from fretting about something (like a new school year situation).
Lemon is great for 101 different things…. while it actually has stomach-calming properties too, it’s also a key ingredient to our “world famous ” LLPC recipe…… if you struggle with seasonal sniffles and aren’t familiar with this favorite, ask a WiW old timer…. it’s the best for making things right! It’s also key in helping the lymphatic system function more optimally too. .
Life 9: I can speak for hours on the benefits of a great probiotic’s effects on gut health. All probiotics are NOT created equally…… if you’ve never used Life 9 before, I challenge you to get it for free this month, and then take it daily for 30 days. In fact, I double-dog dare ya! See if you don’t feel the difference. Remember, good gut bacteria (as is your pooping ability) largely regulate your immune system. If you struggle with either of these (or heck, if you struggle with emotions that tend to upset the gut, oftentimes, getting a good gut balance, often straightens those things out too!)The best thing about free stuff is that you can try it for free and decide if it fits your healthy journey well. I’ll say this tho….. those of us who know Life9 intimately use it daily!
Plus, it comes with that cute little supplement case!
Finally, MultiGreens! Is this a regular for you already? I tend to alternate between MultiGreens and NingXia Greens (love them both…. NRG is a powder and MG is a capsule and they are different products, but they are both VERY green ). So many people (big and little peeps alike) don’t get enough “greens” in their diet (Green M&M’s or green gummy worms don’t count….. in fact, that’s all the more reason to get the good greens into your day!) MultiGreens allows you to “get the greens in” and thereby helps your thyroid, nervous, and circulatory systems in ways your body may be telling you you’ve been missing them (are you reading your body’s clues?). Never tried it? This is another tool you’ll get to try for free!
Happy August friends! Which freebie are you most excited to get?
When I was little we celebrated May Day! (Did anyone else do this?) We would make little handmade baskets out of paper and milk cartons, and then fill them up with candy and flowers and go hang them on the doors of older people and people who might be lonely (we would ring the doorbell and then run off and hide and watch them be surprised by their little gift).
This month’s Young Living gift with purchase is kinda like that! I LOVE LOVE LOVE when they gift us supplements or other products we maybe have never tried. About 9 years ago, they gifted a bottle of Sulfurzyme as part of the Monthly Freebies…… and it changed MY life (and health trajectory for my bladder…. among other points of inflammation in my body).
Don’t miss out on those free Loyalty Rewards Points (10…. just for placing an LR order! Remember points = cash for products you already use and buy anyway!)
Citronella…… I keep a bottle of Citronella in the Laundry room (I use it on my dryer balls in the summer…. it is a fresh scent, and it helps keep the mosquitoes and biting bugs away….. if you have an outdoor kitchen or spend a lot of time on the patio… put a diffuser out there. It’s WAY healthier than the toxic chemicals that are used to do the same thing. Citronella is known to repel spiders, gnats, fleas, and mosquitoes. A great recipe for naturally repelling pests from your garden plants…. ( 1 tsp castile soap, 10 drops peppermint, 10 drops rosemary, 10 drops citronella, 10 drops lemongrass, and water in a 16 oz spray bottle. Mist the leaves and stem of the plant every 5-7 days)
DiGize….. Such an important oil blend for keeping the digestive system happy. For many people, DiGize was the “aha” moment that essential oils are a valuable tool and should never be left out of a first aid kit. If indigestion is a “thing” for you, try a little dab in your belly button . Can I see a show of hands on those who have back walked out of some moments thanks to this blend?
Detoxzyme is a fantastic companion to DiGize. Sooooooo many people don’t understand that their digestive woes are often partially the result of insufficient digestive enzymes. Such an easy fix! Detoxzyme is helpful in the digestive process, and it’s formulated to be extra helpful if you are interested in improving your elimination of toxins. It can be taken regularly to assist in the process. PRO Tip: Before going to bed, load up on Detoxzyme…. the liver is most active at night, and you’ll drop more toxins laden in the toilet the next day!
Rose Ointment…… I’ve heard so many beautiful skin-healing stories about this helpful tool! It is deeply soothing for dry, irritated skin. I’m sure you’ll find it one you reach for as part of your skin TLC toolbox!
Have a great day friends! Which gift are you most excited about?
(PS: If you are not yet enjoying the benefits of Young Living products ….. or freebies!… but would like to be, I’d be honored to be your navigator and guide! Here’s a link to join me and get personalized education in the process: https://bit.ly/3oFccZj )
We talk about a lot of things in Yoga…. and is one of them! Yoga is one holistic tool to help get your digestive system moving more regularly. If someone isn’t having daily (normally formed) bowel movements, this is a guarantee that the rest of the body will not perform optimally.
Come to yoga…. it may be just what you’ve been missing!
Wednesday nights @ 7:30pm …… message me for details (Walk-in’s always welcome!)
I’ve been involved in several client, family, and friend discussions over the last couple weeks on colonoscopies. This is another procedure we are expected to partake in as we age. While there is a time and a place for Western Medicine (and colonoscopies), I offer up this information:
There are a growing number of studies whose outcome suggests that having fecal immunological testing was AS EFFECTIVE as a colonoscopy (and without the risks) in people who are considered low risk (people with no prior history of colorectal cancer, no dark stools or rectal bleeding etc). Here’s a quote from one of the studies :
” The most relevant result of this interim analysis is that one-time screening with FIT was very similar to one-time colonoscopy with respect to the rate of detection of colorectal cancer, and there was no significant difference in the stage of tumors detected by the two strategies. ” Certainly, the colonoscopy will catch adenomas (which are benign fatty deposits), but again, this isn’t without risk.
Cologuard is a prescribed product, so you’ll need your doctor’s support in this approach. In my professional opinion, it is worth investigating.
