Inner Defense (250 PV tier)
The change of seasons, especially with the introduction of cooler weather, is always a sign that we need to beef up our wellness routine. Inner Defense is a powerhouse that helps keep us feeling great and able to enjoy the season. Plus, here's a tip from Young Living!
•Rake in the health benefits. Up your daily dose to 3–5 soft gels or combine the healthy immune-supporting power of Inner Defense with our probiotic powerhouse Life 9.

AromaEase 5-ml (190 PV tier)
Fall is about comfort. Whether that's at home or while on those drives to see the changing leaves, AromaEase can help keep you comfortable and at ease. When your tummy isn't travel-happy, rub a drop or two on your stomach or smell it from the bottle. While at home, diffuse it to help yourself loosen up a bit and be comfortable in your favorite setting.

Ravintsara 5-ml (Bonus Essential Rewards 190 PV tier)
Ravintsara has a cleansing, pleasant scent that helps support easy breathing, plus is helps clear your mind and the air around you. Combine it in the diffuser with Copaiba, Spearmint, and Peppermint (1-2 drops of each until you find the balance you like) for a fresh, inviting scent. You can also use a drop or two of Ravintsara as part of your facial cleansing routine (add it to your face wash or toner).

Free Shipping (100 PV tier)
Psst...Shop or Essential Rewards orders can qualify for free shipping when you hit 100 PV or above! Save a little money - fill your order and start your fall off right!
What are YOU most excited about?

As if that weren't enough, look at what else you can get for FREE this month!

 
I don't know about you, but one of my goals this month is to earn that GORGEOUS DIFFUSER!!!! Challenge accepted!!!
We have some exciting news about October’s Level Up: We’ve added a Triple Up! It’s the first time we’ve offered a third level, making this one an incredible promotion.
  • Prep for cold-weather wellness by reaching October’s Level Up. When you hit this month’s level up goal, you’ll earn a 5 ml bottle of Peppermint Vitality and a 5 ml bottle of Blue Cypress. Add a dash of Peppermint to a cup of cocoa and hydrate chilly hands with Blue Cypress after an evening in the pumpkin patch!
  • Your pumpkin spice season can be even sweeter if you qualify for Double Up! Along with Peppermint and Blue Cypress, you’ll receive a 5 ml bottle of Hinoki, a 15 ml bottle of Longevity, and a bottle of MultiGreens. Before a day of hayrides and hot apple cider, remember your MultiGreens! When you return home, set an autumn mood with Hinoki’s woodsy scent and moisturize dry skin with a few drops of Longevity in your favorite lotion.
  • Qualify for Triple Up (yes, we said Triple Up!) and you’ll triple the fall fun with our handcrafted Lustre Artisan Diffuser. Surround yourself in its soft glow and your favorite snuggle-up diffuser blend as you settle in for the evening.
As a reminder, you level up when you help two people upgrade from retail, reactivate, or enroll with Young Living and sign them up on Essential Rewards with a 100 PV order or more. To double up, you’ll need to do the same for four people. Add two more to the mix and you’ve tripled up!

A Few of My Favorite Things: Halloween

A Few of My Favorite Things: Halloween
Our family has a unique way of "celebrating" Halloween. We give out candy, like so many others, but we also have a cocoa and cookie stand set up. We offer everyone who comes a cup of cocoa and ask if they mind if we say a quick prayer for them while we fill their cup. It's rare that anyone ever says no and oftentimes the parents will share a specific request for prayer. It's another way that we can love others well.

'Tis the season for pumpkin EVERYTHING! Here are some favorite, pumpkin-themed, essential oil recipes perfect for the season!


(Shaundra Tinney)






PUMPKIN PIE BARS (Elizabeth Bailey)
CRUST
1 cup Einkorn Granola
1 cup Einkorn flour (or white flour)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 drops Thieves Vitality

FILLING
1 can pumpkin puree
1 can evaporated milk
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
3 drops Clove Vitality
5 drops Nutmeg Vitality
5 drops Thieves Vitality

DIRECTIONS
Preheat over to 350. Crush Einkorn Granola in a blender to finely chop pieces. In a mixing bowl, stir together crushed granola, flour, salt, baking soda, and sugar. Mix in butter, vanilla, and drops of Thieves Vitality until mixture binds together. Press into the bottom of an 8x8 square baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile in a mixing bowl, blend together pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, brown sugar, and eggs. Add vanilla, salt, and drops of Clove, Nutmeg, and Thieves Vitality. Pour mixture over the baked crust. Bake in oven for 40 minutes until golden on top and middle of pie just slightly jiggles. Remove from oven and all to cool for 1 hour. Refrigerate at least an hour to allow the pie to finish firming up. Cut into squares and serve with whip topping if desired. ENJOY!



Pumpkin Spice Coffee (Stephanie Ours)
Pumpkin Spice is back, baby!! But let’s be honest, those coffee store drinks aren’t exactly the best for you. 
Here’s how you can use your Vitality oils to create your own:

Mix together in an empty (and clean) 15ml bottle
-20 drops Nutmeg Vitality
-10 drops Ginger Vitality
-30 drops Clove Vitality
-20 drops Orange Vitality
-30 drops Cinnamon Bark Vitality
Swirl it all together. Now for the fun part. Infusing your coffee!!!

1. Open a new bag of your favorite Fair-trade organic coffee. 
Stick your nose in the bag and inhale deeply (Ok, you can skip that part, but seriously, not much smells better ).
2. Drop in 30-50 drops of the Pumpkin Spice Blend.
3. Reseal the bag and give it a good shake. Now let it sit for 24 hours.***
4. Brew coffee as normal.

Want more Pumpkin Spice Flavor? Add a drop right to your coffee!
Bonus: This perfect Pumpkin Spice Vitality blend can be used to infuse into all your favorite fall recipes!!
***Note from Andrea: I recommend storing the beans in a GLASS container, rather than the coffee bag. 
Citrus oils can break down plastic, transferring those compounds to your coffee.


No Bake Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats (Danyelle Ho)
Ingredients:
1/2 Cup Organic Peanut Butter
1 Cup Organic Canned Pumpkin (not pie filling)
1 Tbsp Honey
2 1/2 Cups Organic Oats
Mix all of the ingredients together. Roll spoonfuls of the mixture into balls. 
These treats should be stored in the refrigerator or freezer.
Pro Tips:
* Add a Ningxia Wolfberry to every ball for an extra health boost.
* Add a few drops of your pup's favorite oil to the mix. Copaiba is a favorite for my senior pup and has a mild flavor.
* Einkorn Berries would be a great addition too!

Ball Cap Personal Diffuser

Ball Cap Personal Diffuser
My friend, Becca Sutton, had this amazing idea - turn ball caps into personal diffusers! Great for kids and adults alike! 

Do your kids play sports? Check out this ball cap combo!

Here are some other oily ideas:
  • Stress Away - for obvious reasons!
  • Clarity - keep your head in the game!
  • Lemon / Peppermint / Lavender - because being in the great outdoors can require some seasonal upper respiratory support (Combine in a roller and roll the blend onto the band. Because peppermint is a hot oil, add in a non-greasy carrier oil, such as YL's V-6 carrier oil.)
  • Breathe Again - for easy breathing during exercise.
