I’m constantly amazed at the great testimonials we receive from our members. They send us great product use ideas, heartwarming testimonials, and practical application advice.
Here are a few we’ve recently received on Super B™:
“My son, Jesse, had a hard time holding his temper and kids at school discovered they could push his buttons. However, I got him to take YL’s Super B and he reported to me that he felt more in control and could walk away from a potential fight. He really felt a difference!”
“I love Super B. I have taken many different B vitamins over the years, but have found Young Living’s Super B to be the best. Amazing energy.”
As I’m sure you can attest, these are just a few of the advantages that come with taking Super B. Young Living’s Super B is known for supporting normal cardiovascular health, improving a positive outlook, and sustaining healthy energy levels. But the benefits don’t stop there!
Now’s your chance to get in on the discussion.

Have you picked up your free RutaVaLa™ Roll-On this month as part of the PV promotion? This roll-on certainly has a unique smell thanks to the blend of ruta and valerian smoothed out with lavender. Don’t let the unexpected pungent aroma turn you away; RutaVaLa Roll-On is an amazing tool to ease pressures on the body and in the mind.
This unique essential oil product was formulated by Gary Young to help target tense areas for a focused application. The stainless-steel roll-on ball—combined with the blend of authentic essential oils—helps pinpoint muscles to release muscle pressure and overcome negative feelings.
I recently an had incredible experience with RutaVaLa Roll-On. I wrecked on my bike when a car pulled out in front of me. The pain was intense; my head hurt and I had a cracked rib. When I got home, I hurt so badly I began to suffer emotionally. I applied RutaVaLa on my ribs and experienced a great deal of emotional relief—so much so, I was able to relax and get some sleep to help my body heal. Later, whenever emotional discomfort and stress arose because of my injuries, I quickly applied RutaVaLa Roll-On for quick relief.
As you practice using RutaVaLa Roll-On, you’ll quickly find that your usual pressure triggers will begin to fade away. The negative energy that once stored inside of your body will begin to release, giving you and your family more peace in the home. You are going to love yourself even more as you use RutaVaLa Roll-On!
Peace be with you,
Every year I do what I can to arm myself against the cold & flu season. I wash my hands at every opportunity, I drink plenty of water, and I try to get a solid seven or eight hours of sleep each night.
Despite my best efforts, however, interacting with germs is almost unavoidable. Door handles, dollar bills, elevators, playgrounds, and public places are all hot beds for germs! Instead of avoiding these things, and life in general, I’ve started incorporating a few Young Living products into my regimen that have greatly strengthened my immune system, allowing my body to fight off germs and bacteria from the inside out.
Life 5™—Did you know that your digestive tract is largely responsible for your body’s immune system? This area acts as the command center of the immune system and the eliminator of waste products. In order for it to work properly, a partnership with billions of probiotics is necessary to prevent the proliferation of harmful bacteria and to help flush waste in your system. Life 5 provides a daily boost of five of the most clinically proven and advanced probiotics, including three super strains that represent the most health-promoting and viable strains ever prepared in a supplement.
Super C™—Young Living’s Super C not only contains 2,166 percent of the recommended dietary intake of vitamin C per serving, but it also fortifies with rutin, citrus bioflavonoids, and minerals to enhance the effectiveness and absorption of vitamin C.* The essential oils that are added to this supplement may also increase bioflavonoid activity. This product helps normal immune and circulatory functions, strengthens connective tissues, and helps to promote overall health, vitality, and longevity.*
Inner Defense™—Inner Defense strengthens your body by creating an unfriendly environment for yeast and fungus, thereby improving digestion and supporting the respiratory system to help fight wintertime discomforts. Young Living’s powerful essential oils—including oregano, thyme, and Thieves® essential oil blend—are key components of this total system protection supplement.

Since 1999 I have been using Young Living essential oils with my students, private bodywork clients, friends, family, and of course for myself. In all of my experience I can’t think of an essential oil blend that’s had a more profound impact on me than Believe™. It’s the perfect balance of Idaho balsam fir essential oil (Abies grandis), rosewood essential oil (Aniba rosaeodora), and frankincense essential oil (Boswellia carteri). Gary Young must have been truly inspired when he created this blend, which I refer to as “sunshine in a bottle.”
I have found success using this blend for communication or throat chakra issues. The throat chakra is the energy center for expressing our emotions, speaking truth, and the ability to grieve. I personally use Believe neat (undiluted) on the back of the neck and throat area before I make important phone calls or have business meetings. Most recently I have needed to make specific requests and set boundaries with people and I have found that Believe helps me be concise and clear while still maintaining kindness and compassion in my communications with others.
In my book, Aroma Yoga®: A Guide for Using Essential Oils in Your Yoga Practice, I recommend Believe as a throat chakra oil. When we have a strong belief in ourselves and are in touch with our purpose, it’s easier to be clearer in our communications with others. In my experience using Believe, I feel that this essential oil blend gives me an extra boost of confidence, while also helping ground and strengthen me energetically.
Try using Believe in the morning before going to work or holding an important meeting. I recommend putting a drop on your throat and a little on the outer ridges of your ears as well. As I said before, Believe is an excellent oil for improving our communication skills. Excellent communication includes our ability to listen, not only to others, but also to our inner wisdom.
Just as I began writing this blog, I received a call from a woman who attended one of my Aroma Yoga classes in Florida. She fell in love with Believe, purchased her own bottle, and ran out in just one month. She told me that without Believe she felt like something important for well-being was missing in her life.
If you haven’t experienced Believe yet, I hope you will take the opportunity to try it for yourself soon—there is definitely something incredible about it.
Here’s to the belief that we can all have peace, love, abundance, and excellent health in 2011!
Happy New Year!
I find myself indulging in a variety of ethnic cuisine after the holidays. I suppose it is an attempt to relieve my taste buds of all the traditional seasonal fare and continue the celebratory mood for as long as I can. The restaurant industry, especially Italian and Mexican cafes, is filled with patrons escaping from their own kitchens. This makes New Year’s resolutions to eat healthy a challenge when January arrives. A sense of dread hovers like a cloud as all gear up to return to a more healthy routine and say goodbye to the holiday parties. This transition between feasting to sensible living has become easier for me by incorporating raw cuisine.
Chipotle Party Pepper Poppers are made in a non-traditional way to keep health and taste as the primary focus. In these explosive bites, nut-based creams substitute dairy, while slow dehydration replaces fried techniques with saturated oils. In addition, Young Living’s black pepper, oregano, and lemon essential oils promote cleansing and add a Mexican flair. Plus Young Living’s Life 5™ probiotic adds live culture to the cheese and sour cream! As we drag out the festive atmosphere, make these healthy hors d’oeuvres to heat up wintertime blues. May the year 2011 encourage exploration into raw healthy cuisine incorporating Young Living essential oils to liven flavor and energy. May all return to normal schedules and healthful choices with peace and joy.

Would you believe that there is a nutritional supplement that can help support many of these worthy goals? Young Living’s Super B™ supplement is known for supporting healthy energy levels, enhancing your mood, and helping internal enzyme reactions that control circulation, hormone levels, and overall health. Super B also helps support normal, overall cardiovascular health and aids in normal digestive function. The benefits of Super B are wide reaching, and they not only affect your physical health, but also your overall outlook of life!
Young Living has recently improved the Super B formula to provide all eight essential B vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B12, B6, B7, B9, and its newest addition, B5. With added magnesium, zinc, and selenium, the B vitamins are easily digested and absorbed into the system.

Being happy in your own skin just might be the jump-start you need for the new year. Let’s be honest: There are negative influences that bombard our self-image every day. We all have one thing we would like to change about our bodies, career, home, school, etc. Take Palo Santo essential oil and rub it on the area of your body that you are struggling with to ward off negative thoughts. There are a few easy steps to think about while you are applying Palo Santo:
- Be Accepting—As you apply Palo Santo, the most important thing to remember is to accept yourself.
- Focus on the Positive—Setting positive goals is a great way to keep perspective. Realize that you might not be where you want to be yet, but you certainly are stronger.
- Take Time for You—After applying the oil, go out for a walk, to the gym, or just take time to relax.
- Self Importance—You need to appreciate yourself for who you are and not let yourself get caught up in the world’s fad of always having to be perfect.
Applying Palo Santo to the area where you are feeling negative emotions can go a long way towards helping your self-image.
Peace be with you,
