Wanted to share this weeks round up of my favorite products!!
Haven’t tried Young Living’s Insect Repellent?? Here is why you need it!!
Are you plagued by mosquitoes, gnats, and flies when all you want to do is enjoy a bonfire or walk along the beach?
It’s tempting to reach for the classic insect repellent, but before you do that, flip over the bottle to see if DEET is an active ingredient.
DEET is a registered pesticide. It is a member of the toluene chemical family. Toluene is an organic solvent used in rubber, plastic cements, and paint removers. DEET is absorbed through the skin and can pass into the blood.
It can cause allergic skin reactions and eye irritation. A 2013 analysis of about 4,000 DEET-related calls to poison control centers found that 450 people needed medical treatment after applying DEET, and two were fatal.
Most cases of seizures, slurred speech, coma, and other serious side effects have occurred in people who ingested DEET or applied it for three or more days in a row or used products with 95 percent DEET or more.
No, thanks. I’ll pass.
Feeling hopeless due to lack of EFFECTIVE DEET-free alternatives?
Young Living came out with an Insect Repellent that has been tested to repel mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas using 100 percent naturally derived, plant-based ingredients.
Pure sesame oil and a carefully selected blend of essential oils traditionally used for their bug-repellent properties come together to make up all 99 percent of the active ingredients in this formula. The other 1 percent? Vitamin E. That means you can use it on your little ones and not worry about the synthetic chemicals used in many traditional repellents. You’ll also love the pleasant, citrusy aroma and smooth, non-sticky application.
What happens when you’re stressed? Your adrenal glands go into overdrive and your cortisol levels go up. High levels of cortisol cause the body to scavenge for protein to convert into glucose to provide energy for the brain to deal with the perceived stress (also severely depresses the immune system). So, adrenaline kicks in. Adrenaline is your fight or flight hormone. Your adrenals can spike creating a feeling of energy then crash with extreme fatigue when they run out of materials to work with. (Feeling fine in the morning, but when contemplating work will get extremely tired.) Any type of stress will cause adrenal glands to overreact, causing you to get extremely tense and nervous; or fail to respond or get suddenly extremely tired.
So- what do we do?? Cortistop calms the body down and lowers the cortisol level; strength and energy return as cortisol declines to a more normal level. Also, your adrenals need minerals and B vitamins at all time. So get some SUPER B too! AND – essential oils like nutmeg and clove have corticosteroid activity and help adrenals to heal. Nutmeg oil, b-vitamins and minerals religiously will turn hypoadrenia around.
(not recommend during pregnancy. Use with discretion while nursing)
How to take it – take it for 8 weeks, then take a 2-4 week break, then repeat.
We can all use emotional support at different times. Joy will be your jam. Blend with a grounding oil like Patchouli, Frank or Vetiver to tone down the floral and add the calm.
Joy oil is a blend that uplifts moods, decreases tension, helps with grief, and inspires feelings of love and romance. It smells like a bouquet of beautiful flowers and many women substitute their perfume for this emotion boosting non-toxic options. Apply over the heart, and ears, or diffuse and watch the mood change!
Ningxia Red combines the extraordinary wolfberry superfruit with pure orange, yuzu, lemon, and tangerine essential oils (containing powerful constituent d-limonene…google it!), along with blueberry, cherry, pomegranate + plum juices to deliver a whole-body nutrient infusion. I don’t go a day without it! This drink is our JAM!
1 oz of Ningxia Red’s antioxidant power equals:
4 lb of carrots and 2 qt of carrot juice
8 oranges and 1 pt of orange juice
2 lb of beets and 3 cups of beet juice
3 cups of raspberries
3 cups of blueberries
