There are many schools of thought on antioxidants, but the theory of free radicals is one of the strongest. The theory is based on the fact that continued oxidative stress to cells, receptors and DNA in the body cause aging; beyond the normal aging process.
All of us are subject to day-to-day oxidative damage. The good news is one of the best ways we can decrease the amount of oxidative stress is by increasing our uptake of antioxidants.
Why are Antioxidants so Important?
Antioxidants are incredible because when taken as a dietary supplement (hello Longevity Vitality) it may protect the skin by attaching themselves to free radicals, which in turn may minimize the potential harmful effects and is important for youthful-looking skin.

One of the things I love about Young Living is there are so many resources to help managing the stress and give it a route out.
Products won’t do all the work for you, but if you intentionally slow down and support your system with them you will feel a shift in your mental and emotional state.
Stress Away is often picked first. This blend is perfect for helping with alleviating everyday stress. A great option is the Stress Away Roll-On. Always keep it on you and use it often. Make sure you breathe it in deeply while applying.
Tranquil Roll-On is fantastic to grab if Stress Away just isn’t quite cutting it for your anxiousness. This roller is a blend of Lavender, Cedarwood, and Roman Chamomile. It is often used for sleep to calm the mind, but it can be incredibly helpful for those that need help settling their mind that is constantly turned on.
Motivation is a blend that is good for the times you have a list you must complete, but you are struggling with the feeling of action to complete it. This is a great one to toss in the diffuser or to put behind your ears. Breathe in deeply and do the things you have to do to feel accomplished.
Relaxation Massage Oil is a great wind down product for the end of a crazy day. This massage oil can help relieve, relax, and soothe. If you don’t have someone to give you a massage, you can do a self-massage. Take some of your Massage Oil and rub your hands and feet. Find the pressure points that feel the most tender and rub them out. The pressure points on these extremities act as a full-body massage.
Stress Away or Lavender Bath Bombs are both great options. If you need some serious recharge time, draw a hot bath, and put one of these in. The bath bomb is not only aromatically soothing, but the ingredients are ones to help make your body feel soft and silky when you are done.
