Monthly Young Living Order - February Edition

Most of my stuff this month was stuff I order monthly, but with a couple new things I am really excited about!

New This Month:

Melissa: "Melissa (Melissa officinalis) has a light, fresh, lemony scent that is strengthening and revitalizing, yet soothing and calming. It was an important ingredient in Carmelite water (distilled in France since 1611 by members of the Carmelite Order). Several studies report that melissa may benefit the skin. It is also comforting during the winter season and supportive of immune system function.* Melissa has an approximate ORAC of 1,343,547 (TE/L)."

Melissa is a very valuable & powerful oil. I have been pining away for it since I smelled the Melissa plant at the Young Living Mona farm last summer. It smelled so good, & it is well known for being able to really boost the immune system as well as the emotions. It has been out of stock for a while now due to bad growing conditions last year, but came back in stock a week or so before my order went through, so I snagged one. Seeing as how it is one of the more expensive oils, I'm tucking it away for times that we really need it. I'll likely just take it out & get a good sniff every now & then (which is good enough to get that oil working in your system!).


BLM: "BLM™ supports normal bone and joint health.* This formula combines powerful all-natural ingredients, such as type II collagen, MSM, glucosamine sulfate, and manganese citrate, enhanced with therapeutic-grade essential oils. These ingredients have been shown to support healthy cell function and encourage joint health and fluid movement.*"

I take one BLM capsule every day. It has made SUCH a difference for me - I can even tell when I miss taking one.

Essential Oil Sample Bottles: I use these to give samples to people, & also in my little oils holder that goes in my bag - some oils just need to be with you at all times!

Dragon Time: "Dragon Time™ is a blend of calming and soothing essential oils, including clary sage, which contains natural phytoestrogens - the perfect choice for women's emotions during special times and needs. Its balancing properties make it a perfect choice for supporting normal, healthy emotions during the female monthly cycle. Dragon Time is recommended for young and mature women."

Basically - it helps you not be a dragon. Among other things. :)

NingXia Red: "NingXia Red® is a powerful antioxidant drink that contains whole Ningxia wolfberry puree—a super blend of blueberry, aronia, cherry, pomegranate, and plum juices, natural stevia extract, grape seed extract, pure vanilla extract, and orange, yuzu, lemon, and tangerine essential oils. Its health benefits include support from head to toe, via a whole body nutrient infusion. NingXia Wolfberries have been cherished for centuries for its health, energy, and longevity benefits. Whole Ningxia wolfberries and other nutrient-dense fruit juices make NingXia Red the perfect choice for optimizing wellness and stepping up to a whole new level of health."

We will always have this on hand!! We've been going through it more lately - tis the season!

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 love taking a Nitro before I head to the gym! It works! I also love taking it with my NingXia Red for an extra boost when needed.

Slique Bars: "Slique Bars dual-targeted satiety approach and medley of exotic fruits, nuts, and science creates the perfect functional, nutritious snack to help you feel fuller, longer. Each box contains six bars (35 g each)."

These are a great, filling snack, with completely natural ingredients. I don't usually like nut & fruit bars, but these are yummy. They're great for on-the-go, which is usually when I eat them.

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 order these so I can 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.

FREE promo items:

Thyme: "Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) has a spicy, warm, herbaceous aroma that is both powerful and penetrating. Known since ancient times as a medicinal herb, thyme contains large amounts of thymol. As a dietary supplement, it is one of the strongest antioxidants known. Thyme supports the immune, respiratory, digestive, nervous, and other body systems.* Thyme may also be used to enhance the flavor of food. Thyme has an approximate ORAC of 159,590 (TE/L)."

Taste of Italy: This blend is brand new & only available through this month's promos. It blends basil & five varieties of oregano, making it great for cooking or for boosting the immune system. It smells great!

Lavender Hand & Body Lotion: "Bring life back to your skin with this all-natural lightweight moisturizer infused with skin-loving lavender essential oil. Added nutrients such as wolfberry seed and jojoba oils fortify your skin's natural moisture barrier to maintain long-lasting hydration."

I haven't purchased any of the YL lotions yet so I was excited to get this free this month. I really, really like it! Unlike most "lavender" body products, this actually uses real therapeutic lavender & you can smell the difference. The lotion absorbs into the skin quickly & moisturizes well.
