Monthly Young Living Order - December Edition

Every month, I get a package from Young Living. (Their Essential Rewards program gives you points back for free products, so every few months I get to cash those in for lots of free stuff - it's pretty awesome.) I change it up based on what I need or want to try. I'm going to tell you a bit about what I got this month. Please keep in mind that the information will seem limited & will mainly be what I pull from Young Living's website.

Sulfurzyme: "Sulfurzyme® combines wolfberry with MSM, a naturally occurring organic form of dietary sulfur needed by our bodies every day to maintain the structure of proteins, protect cells and cell membranes, replenish the connections between cells, and preserve the molecular framework of connective tissue.* MSM also supports the immune system, the liver, circulation, and proper intestinal function and works to scavenge free radicals.* Wolfberries contain minerals and coenzymes that support the assimilation and metabolism of sulfur."

The Hubs & I take Sulfurzyme daily. I started taking it for one issue, & it showed up on one of the Hubs' Zyto scans, so he takes it too. It is one of my favorite YL supplements.

Ningxia Nitro: "NingXia Nitro™ combines 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils with naturally powerful ingredients to lift mental clarity and focus while also providing a surge of energy when needed. Each box contains 14 single-serve tubes (20 ml each).

Primary Benefits: *Increases mental fitness, cognitive alertness, and physical acuity* *Enhances athletic performance and endurance* *Boosts energy and serves as a daily pick-me-up*"

I take a Nitro with my Ningxia Red before I work out, & sometimes when I am feeling sluggish & need to clear my brain. Love it.

Balance Complete: "Balance Complete™ is a super-food-based meal replacement that is both a powerful nutritive energizer and a cleanser. Offering the benefits of Ningxia wolfberry powder, brown rice bran, barley grass, extra virgin coconut oil, aloe vera, cinnamon powder, and our premium whey protein blend, Balance Complete is high in fiber, high in protein, and contains the good fats, enzymes, vitamins, and minerals needed for a nutritionally dynamic meal. Balance Complete also features Young Living's proprietary V-Fiber™ blend, which supplies an amazing 11 grams of fiber per serving, absorbs toxins, and satisfies the appetite while balancing the body's essential requirements.*"

I use Balance Complete to make a protein smoothie several times a week for breakfast. I mix it with frozen berries or cherries, almond milk, & some ice. Delicious, & very filling!

Thieves mints: I ordered these so I could have a healthier mint option available. They have peppermint oil, Thieves blend, & xylitol - much better for me than the stuff from the store. They're not cheap but I don't use mints a lot, so they'll last me a while.

ART skin care (new formula): I have been using the ART skin care since this summer, & I have really loved it. They just came out with a new formula, & I'm almost out of my other stuff, so I went ahead & reordered it to have it ready. (That means it has lasted me 6 months!)

Orange Blossom face wash: "Orange Blossom Facial Wash™ is a gentle, nonabrasive, free-rinsing cleanser that removes dirt and makeup without stripping skin of natural oils. It contains MSM to promote healthier and clearer skin, wolfberry seed oil to hydrate, and essential oils to soothe with aromatic benefits. Added botanicals protect skin from free radical damage."

I'm just trying this for the first time. It's super concentrated so I added two tablespoons of the wash to a foaming pump & filled the rest with water. Looking forward to adding this to my skin care routine.

Rutavala: "RutaVaLa promotes relaxation of the body and mind. It helps ease tension and relieve stress. The blend helps overcome negative feelings while encouraging a positive attitude and comfort."

This is the only "relax" oil I had not purchased yet. I haven't tried it on myself yet, but did use it on the boys a few nights ago before bed!

Promo Items - free for placing a qualifying purchase
Vetiver: "Vetiver (Vetiveria zizanoides) has a heavy, earthy fragrance similar to patchouli with a touch of lemon. Vetiver oil is psychologically grounding, calming, and stabilizing. One of the oils that is highest in sesquiterpenes, vetiver was studied by Dr. Terry Friedmann for improving children's behavior. Vetiver may help when coping with stress and to recover from emotional trauma and shock. Vetiver has an approximate ORAC of 742,792 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter."

Vetiver is a great oil. I know a lot of people use it, for instance, in learning environments. I haven't tried it yet but I treasure any oil that is high in sesquiterpenes.

Treasure of the Season: This is a new & exclusive blend that is only available currently as a promo item this month, so I was really excited to get it! It contains two different types of frankincense, cinnamon bark, & Idaho balsam fir. You can definitely smell the frankincense & cinnamon bark right out of the bottle. It smells earthy & spicy.

That's it for this month's order! You better believe I'm already planning next month's. ;)
