Why Diffuse?

Why Diffuse?
Why should you be diffusing in your home? 
Diffusing is not just a smell good activity.  It is first in line for our motto "real tools with side benefits"  
It’s something we can do in our homes to replace toxic fragrance products with scents with healthy giving benefits. There are incredible aromatic benefits you can receive simply from diffusing pure essential oils. Aromatic usage allows you to inhale essential oils. 
Young Living diffusers are ultrasonic. The fancy little silver plate in the bottom of your diffuser vibrates the water and oils within the diffuser distributing the oils in the air for you to breathe in. The frequency of the oil is maintained for maximum benefit for you, while there is no heat, which can destroy the therapeutic properties of the essential oils. 
So, what exactly are the benefits? 
-Aids in your overall wellness by helping keep you above the wellness line. Different oils help boost your body systems keeping you healthy. 
-Getting rid of odors without spraying chemicals in the air that can cause health and respiratory issues. Many of the sprays that are odor eliminating contain harsh toxins that can linger in the air for up to two weeks. If you struggle with any respiratory issues, this will continue to build up within your system causing issues. Switch out to diffusing some Purification or Citrus Fresh! 
-Lifting your emotions through the benefit of entering the portion of your brain that is only accessed through smell. The limbic region is where memories and emotions are stored. Emotional health is just as important to us as physical, mental, and spiritual health. 
Utilizing our essential oils to keep our moods lifted, helps to steer us from negative thought patterns, allowing us to live life with a more vibrant outlook. Try Joy, Orange, Bergamot, Valor, White Angelica, or Harmony. 
-Sound sleepDiffusing while sleeping is a great way to support your entire body system and to help relax and calm your body for a better sleep experience. Try Lavender, Peace & Calming, Sacred Mountain, or Cedarwood. 
-Energy & Motivation. On the flip side of relaxing and sleep, sometimes you need a boost to “get things done”. Some oils are great at uplifting the spirit to tackle the things you need to do for the day. Try diffusing Gathering, Peppermint and Lemon, Clarity, or Motivation. 
-Creating an atmosphere.  This is one side benefit I love!   Just a few drops, and the whole room changes.   It will affect everyone in the room.   Get the diffuser in place with intention before people are coming and going from your home.  We frequently have comments made when people enter our home.  People can feel the difference.   

Whether it is for meditation, peace, or simply a smell good, feel good intention---there are hundreds of options. 
A few favorites for gatherings are: Stress Away with Peppermint (aka chocolate mint), Gathering, Abundance, Believe, or Sacred Mountain.  

Diffusing is an easy way to be using your essential oils in your home. Keep that amazing machine going 24/7 when you are home and in your bedrooms during the night to continue reaping consistent benefits.    Start them up about 30 minutes before bed, and you are set up for results.   

Sometimes I think back... how did we do life before Young Living? 

Two Tools

Two Tools
Were you raised in a culture of fear?   

I was...    
Using these two oils together in my prayer time gave me tools that work. I hope you find the same value as I did, should you find yourself feeling the weight of stress, anxiety and worry.
Apply a few drops, one oil at a time in the palm of your hand, inhale to a count of four and with a big exhale, as you release the stress with every exhale.  

 Tangerine contains properties that are sedating and calming to the nervous system.
Orange brings peace and happiness to the mind and body and joy to the heart, which feelings provide emotional support to help one overcome depression.
 Ylang Ylang may help balance the male-female energies so you are able to move closer towards being able to focus thoughts, filtering out the ever-present garbage. It brings back feelings of self-love, confidence, joy, and peace.
Patchouli is sedating, calming, and relaxing, allowing it to reduce anxiety.
Blue Tansy may help cleanse the liver and calm the lymphatic system.
3 C's :   courage, calming, and confidence

Spruce grounds the body, creating the balance and the opening necessary to receive and to give. It also helps one release emotional blocks.
Rosewood is soothing to the skin, appeasing to the mind, relaxing to the body, and creates a feeling of peace and gentleness.
Blue Tansy brings cleansing to the lymphatic system and liver.   Assists in gently releasing anger and bottled up emotions
 Frankincense contains sesquiterpenes, which may help oxygenate the pineal and pituitary glands. As one of the ingredients for the holy incense, Frankincense was used in connecting with God.  It can help to lift your spirits and bring a shift in focus and outlook.  

Carve out a few minutes to just 'sit under' valor.   Put it on your shoulders, breathe, journal and feel the weight lift.   
As I say all the time, you can’t make this up...   
These powerful tools can turn the corner in your day when used with intention.  

What a difference it would make if before we saw the world each day, we applied peace and calming and valor!
How would it change your view?

Is your body feeling it?

Is your body feeling it?
Is your body feeling the weight of the stress around you?
Maybe an ulcer, a stress rash, a few hormonal breakouts, some digestive issues, a headache, a backache, some bags under the eyes, teething grinding, should I keep going?   

Just Kidding. Kind of...

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. 

Above all, you can't pour out of an empty cup.
