Good morning friends and Happy 2024!
Are you ready for a fresh start? I believe this year is going to be one for the record books in soooooo many beautiful ways and woke up with a feeling of anticipation and happy energy…… and THEN when I hopped on the computer (after my quiet time) and saw our YL gifts with purchase… I was celebrating all over again! There’s not a single thing here that we don’t use on the regular, which means savings for us!
The YL Vitality Drops in Grapefruit Bergamot….. have been a staple in our home since they came out a few years ago. Not only do they taste as delicious as flavored water, but they truly are tasty as tasty does…… it’s a healthy way to keep your electrolytes in balance (as well as getting a dose of over 70+ naturally occurring ionic trace minerals).
I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve given a tube of my stash of Thieves Chest Rub to people who are sick with respiratory gunk. Thankfully, we are rarely sick at our house (thanks to our continuous efforts in kicking all kinds of mind, body, and spirit toxins to the curb). Nonetheless, we have a robust tool kit on hand, just in case! Lung junk is no joke….. I grew up with it constantly (I was a pretty sick little kid) and being often congested is a strong growing-up memory for me). People who have used Thieves Chest Rub know how powerful it is in helping with congestion. Apply to the chest (or the bottoms of feet) to help ease breathing and congestion issues. The best time to have this on hand is BEFORE you need it!
Peppermint….. how do I use thee? Let me count the ways! Oh, there are about 100 different reasons to use peppermint and keep it on hand. I won’t be without it and use it for everything from getting rid of headaches, fresh breath, keeping myself alert and away, poison ivy remediation, fevers, digestion, being overheated, at the gym, sore muscles…. the list goes on. Do your research on peppermint….. God made the peppermint plant for so many aspects of our health and wellness!
Inner Beauty Collagen…. collagen has been on the health and wellness radar for several years now, and just as in all supplements…. not all collagen is created equally (know your supplement company and where their ingredients come from!). Inner Beauty Collagen was formulated specifically for our hair, skin, and nail health. If you have fine lines and wrinkles you wish weren’t so prominent, or if you have sun-damaged skin, weak/brittle nails, or hair that needs healthy help…. you’ll be thankful for this freebie! This goes into our “morning ritual” drink every day at our home.
Super C.….. unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know the value of Vitamin C. I’m including a nifty summary of all the things Vitamin C does in our body (thanks Oregon State U for this easy-to-read Vit C bio! …. https://lpi.oregonstate.edu/mic/vitamins/vitamin-C ). The biggest thing to remember is that not all Vitamin C (aka ascorbic acid) is equal. Where it is sourced from is important! Unfortunately, much of Vitamin C sourcing comes from “isolated ascorbic acid” most frequently derived from GMO’d corn. This is problematic for a couple of reasons…..1. anything from a GMO source is not healthy for us, and 2. when you “isolate” something like ascorbic acid, you are leaving behind all the essential co-factors that God-given whole foods contain. These are needed for the Vitamin C to work properly in the body. Thankfully, Super C’s sourcing comes from whole food bioflavonoids so we don’t have to worry about all that!
Do you have a favorite freebie listed here?….. or are you like me and thrilled to see ALL of them in your basket for free this month?
Wishing you Joy, beautiful Anticipation, and a Peace that passes all understanding for all 2024 has in store for us! xoxo~ liz
