6 Natural Remedies for Nausea

Posted on August 28th, 2014 | no comments

Almost everyone gets a queasy stomach once in a while, whether it’s motion sickness from a car or rollercoaster, morning sickness from pregnancy, a symptom of an illness, or a side effect of medications. Lucky for us, there are some simple natural remedies that can help. Here are a few tips:

  • Avoid Triggers. Pay attention to what causes nausea, and mentally mark them as “triggers” to avoid.
  • Try to avoid bothersome odors such as perfume, smoke, or certain cooking smells. Get plenty of fresh air. Using an essential oil or blend like AromaEase™ to block bothersome odors can also be refreshing and relaxing.
  • Ginger is a popular natural remedy for quelling queasiness. Look for ginger ale made with real ginger or add a little ginger to a glass of water.
  • Try sipping peppermint tea, especially after eating. Peppermint or ginger-flavored lozenges may also help.
  • If you suffer from motion sickness, optimize your position to reduce motion or motion perception. For example, driving a vehicle instead of riding in it, sitting in the front seat of a car or bus, or sitting over the wing of an aircraft.

 

Essential oils are also a great way to help calm and soothe the body. Peppermint, for example, has been used traditionally to support normal digestion.* Spearmint also supports digestion* and brings feelings of calm. Young Living’s new essential oil blend AromaEase™ contains essential oils to help soothe occasional stress. Diffuse, breathe in directly from the bottle, or apply topically to help support healthy energy flow and vitality.

 

Use any of these suggestions to help you with your queasy quandary!

Favorite NingXia Red “Shots” from Convention

Posted on August 25th, 2014 | no comments

Young Living - Club Red BarThis year’s Convention Lifestyle Expo included a NingXia Red® bar called “Club Red,” where we offered customized shots of NingXia Red, NingXia Nitro™, and Young Living essential oils. The exhilarating atmosphere left an impression on everyone! For those of you who weren’t able to attend, here are some of this year’s most requested NingXia Red shots from our Club Red “bartenders.”

 

“Cimply” Smooth—Ryan Seely, Young Living Associate Product Marketing Manager

My most popular shot was called “Cimply Smooth” (pronounced “simply smooth,” a play on the citrusy contents). I love the flavor of Lime essential oil, and it pairs so nicely with Tangerine to elevate the already delicious NingXia Red flavor. When combined with Frankincense, these pure essential oils awaken the mind!

 

Cimply Smooth

1 oz. NingXia Red

2 drops Tangerine essential oil

2 drops Lime essential oil

1 drop Sacred Frankincense essential oil

 

Dreamsicle—P. J. Carver, Young Living Senior Global Inventory Planner

What better way to Live Your Dream (our Convention theme) than with the Dreamsicle! The smooth and delicious citrus taste was not only great on the palate, but it was refreshing for those who had been at the Convention all day. People were lined up to experience this shot, and who can blame them?

Dreamsicle

1 oz. NingXia Red

1 drop Sacred Frankincense essential oil

1 drop Orange essential oil

1 drop Lime essential oil

1 drop Tangerine essential oil

1 drop Copaiba essential oil

1 drop Citrus Fresh essential oil

1 drop Lemon essential oil

 

Atomic Fireball—Aslyn Burkholder, Young Living Outbound Projects Liaison

This year my shot was called was the Atomic Fireball. I chose this combination because Cinnamon Bark is one of my favorite essential oils and gives the NingXia Red an extra zing. Plus, we all need a little cinnamon to spice up our life!

 

Atomic Fireball

1 oz. NingXia Red

2 drops Cinnamon Bark essential oil

1 drop Ocotea essential oil

Mind Blaster—Lisa Morris, Young Living Help Desk Technician

Two years running, the Mind Blaster has been a crowd favorite. The citrus oils uplift, while the Frankincense gives a smooth prelude to the spice of cinnamon bark. It’s sure to blast your mind!

 

Young Living Club Red BarMind Blaster

1 oz. NingXia Red

1 drop Lime essential oil

1 drop Peppermint essential oil

1 drop Citrus Fresh essential oil

1 drop Frankincense essential oil

1 drop Cinnamon Bark essential oil (on top)

 

Hot Flash—Robert Donakey, Young Living Sales Support Tier 2

My signature shot is called Hot Flash! It’s inspired by products I use after playing basketball. I like the mixture of spicy cinnamon and refreshing peppermint.

 

Hot Flash

1 oz. NingXia Red

2 drops Cinnamon Bark essential oil

2 drops Peppermint essential oil

 

The combinations and benefits of Ningxia Red and essential oils are nearly endless! Comment below and share with us your favorite Ningxia Red “shot.”

Bring Your Bon Voyage Travel Pack for a Safer, Better, and Happier Vacation

Posted on August 21st, 2014 | no comments

Have you ever started your vacation already exhausted from late-night packing? I have! But since our convention earlier this summer, I have a new favorite traveling companion that has significantly reduced my family’s vacation stress—Young Living’s new Bon Voyage Travel Pack.

 

Here’s why I love this kit:

  • I can bring a Bon Voyage Travel Pack for every member of my family. This drastically cuts down on packing time.
  • Bon Voyage Travel Packs are compact and TSA-compliant, so they fit in our carry-ons and get through airport security with ease. When our checked luggage was lost on our latest family vacation, this feature was a lifesaver!
  • The toiletry bag included with each Bon Voyage Travel Pack keeps my kids and the hotel bathroom organized. Everyone knows where their personal care items, like Thieves® AromaBright Toothpaste and Morning Start™ Bath & Shower Gel, belong while they are not in use.
  • The Bon Voyage Travel Pack is an easy way to keep my favorite Young Living personal care products with me, so I don’t have to settle for cheap hotel toiletries.
  • As a bonus, these packs are also an easy way to start an essential oil conversation! During a plane ride, another passenger noticed that my daughter and I both had Young Living-branded bags. We ended up sharing Thieves® Dental Floss and Genesis™ Hand and Body Lotion.

 

Bon Voyage is French for “good journey”; and for my family, this useful travel companion lived up to its name this summer. It’s already become a must-have for me, and I wouldn’t think of traveling without it!

Five Reasons I Love LBrianté

Posted on July 30th, 2014 | 3 comments

Young Living - LBrianteLBrianté is one of my favorite new Young Living products! Just yesterday I was frantically searching the far corners of my purse for that velvety red bag so I could apply the Pink Lip Gloss to my lips and Amoressence essential oil scent to my wrists before a meeting. Every time I use LBrianté, I feel ready for anything.

 

Here are my top five reasons for taking LBrianté everywhere I go:

  1. I love having two products in one package. With a lip gloss on one side and a fragrant essential oil blend on the other, I can freshen my look in a matter of seconds.
  2. LBrianté has interchangeable containers. Normally, Amoressence comes with the red gloss, but since I was wearing pastel yesterday, I changed the red gloss for pink.  Mixing and matching glosses and fragrances gives me nine different options!
  3. The lip gloss contains a hint of spearmint essential oil for a sweet, minty scent and refreshing sensation on the lips.
  4. The fabulous velvet bag LBrianté comes in not only protects the glass bottle of essential oil from breaking, but it also makes it easier to find at the bottom of my purse.
  5. LBrianté is all natural. Unlike other lip products, L’Briante’s safe and natural formula means that I don’t have to worry about my daughter using it. I love the peace of mind that gives me!

 

Please feel free to share your top reasons for using Young Living beauty products, especially LBrianté!
