Can you believe it? We are in the final quarter of 2023. Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year, despite the fact that this time of year seems to always pick up in speed. (2024 will be here before we blink an eye! )
Young Living continues to take good care of us with these seasonally appropriate gifts with qualifying purchase, and some of my faves for free?…… YES Please!
Eucalyptus Globulus…. this is a fan favorite for its ability to effectively support an open airway breathing situation, especially when the struggle is real! (whether that be seasonally or you just need a little breathing boost ! )…. but did you know that it also appears to have a positive effect on pain an inflammatory response simply by inhaling it? (Check out this and other studies posted in the “Discover our Research” sections on the YL website: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3703330/ )
Stress Away is another personal favorite of mine! I have several open bottles strategically situated so that it’s never far from my reach. I use it for daytime management of stress. When I was working behind the counter of the pharmacy, a bottle could always be found in my lab coat. (And not infrequently, I would have co-workers borrow it ). Perfume with a purpose….. this essential oil blend has a light relaxing aroma, and it does a great job of “diffusing the situation” when used!
Bonus points for the olive wood massage tool that comes with it (if you get it as a gift w/ qualifying purchase).
Immupro! for free! This bedtime gem is packet with some of the most powerful plant based immune stimulants…. wolfberry and 3 potent mushroom species well known for their health super powers . It also contains melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone ( which our body tends to produce less of as we age and during times of stress). Melatonin is integral to health…. both for ease of sleeping and for its VIP role in immune system function. (PRO Tip: This particular product has gone out of stock in the past, and there were many “woe is me” ‘s uttered throughout the world. When you find a supplement or oil you’d prefer to not live without…… keep a few bottles on hand. We are working with nature, and sometimes nature doesn’t cooperate in the world of supply and demand . I personally keep at least 4 bottles of Immupro on hand as backup! )
Acceptance. In the last quarter of each year, it’s not uncommon to have some reflection on what was and wasn’t accomplished over the last year. It’s not a time for beating yourself up. Nothing good ever happens when you do that. True…. some things we all could have done a little better, while others are completely outside of our control. What we do have is the ability to give grace to ourselves while we regroup. Consider using this essential oil blend in your diffuser as an aromatic “reminder” during your morning quiet time, time of reflection, or time spent planning “what’s next”. Not everything is always within our control, and learning to accept that which is outside our power to change is a huge de-stressor!
Question: what is something you keep WELL stocked in your home…. because you’d be if you ever ran out?
