Clean Up with March's YL Promos!

Clean Up with March's YL Promos!
March has arrived and with it the urge to clean and freshen every nook and cranny! Time to clean up the mess of winter and start fresh with everything spring! Young Living’s promos for March are all designed to help us kick off spring with a clean slate! So, "spring" into action and get yours!


Here's a little bit of information about each: 

* Orange Vitality is perfect to add to your Ningxia, smoothies and water, plus great in marinades, dressings and baking. You can also take it in a veggie capsule as part of your daily health regimen. I love to diffuse Orange EO and bring the sunshine in on rainy days! Orange is relaxing, uplifting and promotes creativity. It also supports the circulatory system, among others.

A bottle of *Thieves essential oil?! Wellness, anyone??? Yes, please and thank you! This is a never-run-out-of-it oil!

Thieves Dish Soap is highly concentrated and lasts forever since a tiny drop does the trick. You'll love it!

Farmer's markets are right around the corner and springtime likely means your body is likely going to be asking for more produce. The Thieves Fruit & Veggie Soak is perfect for adding to a sink full of water and soaking all the items before putting them away. This little bottle will literally last for months! I love having all of our produce clean and ready to grab! By the way...prepare to be amazed at the dirty residue that lurks in the water after washing, even with organics from the grocery store! 

Thieves Foaming Hand Soap...This is a GREAT way to get another toxin-free product into your home. With as often as we all wash our hands, we need one of these beside every sink!

Thieves Household Cleaner literally cleans every surface of your house, so go ahead and ditch the rest of your chemical-laden cleaning products and get this for free! 

Microfiber towels are so great for dusting and cleaning mirrors and counter tops. Have you tried them yet? You'll love them!

Once you've tackled all your cleaning tasks, sit back and relax with the fresh scent of Kunzea in your diffuser. It's properties are similar to Tea Tree and Purification, but it smells more crisp with a hint of lemon undertones. I actually like to diffuse it at night to support my respiratory system.

Double Your Thieves Laundry Soap!

Double Your Thieves Laundry Soap!
Here's a great way to DOUBLE your Thieves laundry soap, shared by fellow oiler, Molly Bridges:

When you open a new bottle of the Thieves Laundry Soap, Molly suggests pouring 16 ounces (half) into an old laundry soap bottle or a glass mason jar will work too. Stick that back in the cabinet to save for a later day. Add three capfuls of the Thieves Household Cleaner. (Holy cow, the cleaning power!!!) Slowly add 16 ounces of purified water back into the bottle and tilt back and forth gently to mix.

 For HE washers you only need 1/4 a capful for each load. That’s 256 loads out from one bottle of Thieves Laundry Soap! 256 loads of clean, chemical free, non toxic laundry that smells ah-mazing!!!!

Elderberry Wellness Juice

Elderberry Wellness Juice
This post comes from a friend of mine, Michelle Meier, shared with her permission. 

With school starting for the very first time for my little one I want to make sure that we are supporting her immune system and all of ours too.  Among many things like supporting our gut health by taking probiotics  (we like MightyPro and Life 9) and using various  essential oils we also like to take Elderberry juice to help support our immune systems.  

Elderberries are high in antioxidants and flavonoids  and have a long history in supporting the upper respiratory and immune systems. The berries need to be cooked to be eaten, so making them into a wellness juice / syrup is a great way to make them part of your everyday wellness routine. The process is very easy and only takes about 30 minutes. 

First you start off by adding 1/2 cup of dried elderberries (I got mine here) to 3 cups of distilled water in a pot and bring them to a boil. Once boiling turn the temperature down and simmer for 30 minutes. While they are simmering take 1 cup of raw, local honey and add essential oils. It is important to only use high quality, food grade essential oils, which is why Young Living's Vitality Line is the perfect choice. These essential oils are for dietary purposes.

4 drops Thieves Vitality
1 drop Ginger Vitality
1 drop Cinnamon Bark Vitality
8 drops Orange Vitality 


Set oil infused honey aside. Once elderberries have simmered for 30 minutes strain into a glass or stainless steel bowl. Squeeze the rest of the juice out of the elderberries and let cool. It is important to let the juice cool below 95 degrees F before adding the oils infused honey. Raw honey looses important enzymes and therapeutic benefits if heated over 95 degrees. Once cooled stir in the oil infused honey until well combined. Pour into a quart size mason jar and store in the refrigerator.

We like to take this in the fall and winter months as part of our daily regimen to support our immune systems. For adults take 1 tbsp a day and kids 1-2 tsp a day.
