Calming and Relaxing Essential Oils


How many of you dread Mondays?  

DON'T!  

"Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference" Winston Churchill

Your attitude sets the tone for your overall outlook on the day, AND it affects your whole body!  We will all face stress and unwanted days of glum, but we can choose to let the stress and glum feelings control us, or we can control it.  

Essential Oils can be very helpful with calming and relaxing the mind, as well as uplifting a sour mood.  Young Living's Stress Away blend and other essential oils like Lavender, Frankincense, and even the citrus essential oils like Lemon, Lime, and Orange can support positive attitudes as we face the day ahead - good or bad.

Research has shown over and over how beneficial aromatherapy can be for our emotions and mood.  Check out PubMed and search articles on aromatherapy.   

 
You can diffuse essential oils or apply them directly to your skin to help elevate your mood or just relax your mind and body after a stressful day.  I love to add a few drops to Epsom Salts at night and add that to my warm bath.  It is just a great way to end the day and prepare my body for a restful sleep.

What are your favorite relaxing Young Living Essential Oils?

Your Protocol using Young Living's Skin Care Products

Everyone wants great looking and healthy skin.  Throughout the course of my Skin Care series I've shared that obtaining healthy skin is an "Inside/Out" undertaking.  YOU will need to address lifestyle choices as it pertains to your diet, stress, and skin care product use. Taking charge of the health of your skin means "taking charge of your health".  

With all that said, here are the different skin types.  Learn which one you feel best describes your skin.




From here, there are some basic skin care protocols using Young Living's Skin Care products that may be beneficial for you to start with.  These are just basic guidelines and you will have to experiment and decide what works best for YOUR skin.







The suggested essential oils for each skin type can be used to create your own serum for those areas on your skin that need a bit more love.  You could also use them with a splash of water after you tone or in place of a toner to help bring the pH back to an optimal balance.

Everyone skin is different and particular to them.  Any skin care protocol you create for yourself should be given a good 60 days before throwing in the towel.  It takes time for our bodies to adjust to changes in our diet, so as it goes with changes in our skin care regimen.  

I hope this series has been helpful and informative and that you will take the plunge and use Young Living's Skin Care products to support your skin's health!

My FAVORITE - Sheerlume'

Fascination with beauty and the search for the fountain of youth is as old as the beginning of time.  Young Living's "Young" elixir, Sheerlume', combines ancient botanical wisdom with cutting-edge science to visibly brighten and even skin tone.



Research suggests that an "older-looking" face is not defined by the depth of wrinkles but by the other signs such as age spots, skin dullness, and rough textures. Sheerlume' optimizes any complexion with a unique, proprietary blend of alpine plant extracts and carefully chosen essential oils that function as a barrier from external stressors that can add years to your ace. With daily use, Sheerlume' can unveil your radiant, flawless-looking appearance.  Bringing your complexion into light is as easy as applying Sheerlume' morning and night!

Sheerlume' is my FAVORITE Young Living Skin Care product!  I love, love, love - did I say love? - this rich and creamy brightening cream on my face.  I put this on after I use the ART Light Moisturizer OR instead of using it.  I just love the way this cream feels and smells.  So super luxurious!



Sheerlume' contains incredibly nourishing ingredients, like Vetiver, Clove, Carrot, Blue Cypress, Elemi, Geranium, Spearmint, Davana, Jasmine, Melissa, and Idaho Tansy Essential Oils (see...super  fabulous), Fractionated Coconut Oil, Proprietary Blend of Alpine Plants, Madonna Lily, Gotu Kola, and Kakadu Plum.  SUPER INCREDIBLE INGREDIENTS!

Benefits of using Sheerlume':

*Helps illuminate skin complexion
*Visibly improves the appearance of skin-tone
*Natural and safe ingredients
*Selection of exotic essential oils
*Appropriate for all skin types

I use Young Living's Sheerlume' EVERYDAY!  I just love it. 

Now, with all the information on products to help support the health of the skin on your face, how do you know what you should use?  Remember the post that I shared the different skin types?  In my next post I will share some basic Skin Care Protocols that match those skin types.  You can use them as a *guideline* for creating your own skin care regimen. 

Stay tuned...

Seeking the Fountain of Youth

Just a heads up, there is no such thing as a "fountain of youth".  Sorry, your skin will age, but there are things you can do to support graceful aging.

First, remember all the things I've already shared in recent posts on supporting the health of your skin.  That is the biggest part of aging gracefully.  Another thing some people find helpful with supporting the health and youthfulness of their skin is by using creams on targeted areas.

Young Living's Boswellia Wrinkle Cream is an excellent choice for those with mature skin.  It contains only the finest of ingredients, like Geranium, Ylang Ylang, Myrrh, Frankincense, and Sandalwood Essential oils, MSM (Sulfur Component) Wolfberry Seed Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, Calendula, AloeVera, Linoleic Acid, and Panthenol.


Benefits of using Young Living's Boswelllia Wrinkle Cream:

*Helps minimize the appearance of wrinkles
*Supports younger looking skin
*Suitable for all skin types

Do your eyes need a bit of perking up?  Young Living's Wolfberry Eye Cream may be great for you!



The first signs of aging usually occurs around delicate tissues surrounding the eyes. Young Living's Worlfberry Eye Cream, with the antiaging properties found in the wolfberry seed oil, soothes and minimizes those circles and fine lines. This cream is incredibly nourishing to the skin, especially to that delicate area around your eyes.

In my next post I will share a few more Young Living Skin Care products that I LOVE.

Stay tuned...

Pamper Your Face with Refining Products


Did you know that men now make up 1/3 of all spa goers? At the Four Seasons Hotel - Hong Kong, men make up nearly half the spa's customers. (International Spa Association Reports) Refining spa treatments are becoming increasingly popular and some people will spend quite a bit of money on these treatments to help support healthy looking skin.

Many of us live very busy lives and spa time just isn't easily scheduled, and we rarely even try to pamper ourselves at home.  Young Living has created products that give us access to that "spa experience" without the high ticket cost or having to leave our homes.

Today I'd like to talk a bit about *refining*.  Refining products are formulated to target particular concerns. 

Masques are an important refining product that can be used to address specific skin concerns you have.  Using a masque that doesn't have nasty chemicals in it - well, that can be tricky.  But have no fear!  Young Living has two products that will help us rest easy knowing that it is made with only the best ingredients!

Young Living's ART Beauty Masque is formulated as a home-spa experience.  It is a pre-cut material that is saturated with proprietary blend of essential oils that deliver beautifying, effective benefits to all skin types.  

The masque has holes for your eyes, nose, and mouth and is peeled from a paper backing and put on the face.  You can leave the masque on for 30-45 minutes, allowing all the nutrients and oils to be absorbed into the skin. Remove the masque and apply a small about of Young Living's ART Renewal Serum all over your face.  



The ART Beauty Masque has lovely ingredients of Stress Away Essential Oil Blend, Aloe Vera, Lactobacilus Ferment, Morus Alba, Phalaenopsis (Orchid Flower), Boswellia Extract, Angelica Sinensis.

The wonderful benefits of using the Beauty Masque are:

*Soothes, moisturizes, and nourishes skin
*Leaves skin feeling healthy and radiant
*Fabric masque is infused with botanical extracts  to beautify skin



Young Living also offers a wonderful Creme' Masque.  I personally love this one because I can apply it and go to bed, or apply it and get housework done and NO ONE knows I even have it on!

This luxurious cream is ideal as a deep facial moisturizer or an all-night skin treatment. Once the masque dries, you can rinse it off. For best results, gently apply ART Renewal Serum over the face and neck once you've rinsed the masque off. Follow up with your favorite Young Living moisturizing cream. 



The Creme' Masque contains luxurious ingredients like Vetiver, Davana, Roman Chamomile, Ylang Ylang, Vanilla, Ocotea, and Jasmine Essential Oils, Squalane, Aloe Vera, Olivem, Avena Sativa, Sodium Hyaluronate, Camellia Oleifera Leaf, Cucumber Extract, and Vitamins.

Benefits of using Young Living's Creme' Masque:

*Home luxury spa treatment in an easy way
*Deeply cleansing and moisturizing
*Leaves face feeling velvety and smooth

Either one of these refining masques would be great to add to your skin care routine.  

Next time I'll talk a bit about wrinkle and eye creams that Young Living has that help target specific areas on your face.
