7 Tips and Essential Oil Uses for a Balanced Life

Living a balanced life is on everyone’s to-do list, but it takes lots of small steps to get there. See our favorite daily decisions for finding balance in life, including actionable tips using essential oils. While everyone’s choices will be a little different, there’s sure to be something you can start doing today to help center your life around what’s most important to you!

Young Living Stress Away Roll-On

1) Treat yourself.

All work and no play is a surefire way to throw off a balanced life. Wherever you’re logging your hours—at home, the office, the gym, or anywhere else—be sure to treat yourself when the work is done! Making time for yourself ensures that you feel cared for, so you can keep sharing your time, energy, and talents with others. Pursue a new hobby just for fun, spend a night binge-watching a show, or take an extra-long, steamy shower! It can be anything, big or small, that helps you refocus and recharge.

YL Tip: Grab a Stress Away™ Roll-On and check out our Treat Yourself—3 Steps to Make Time for Me Time blog post to get started!

Young Living Magnify Your Purpose

2) Take stock of your life.

When was the last time you thought about what you want and what it takes to get there? Knowing yourself and what makes you feel happy and fulfilled can help balance your life. Unfortunately, the hustle and bustle of daily life makes it almost impossible to passively discover yourself, and you can easily end up somewhere you didn’t intend to go. Balanced people regularly think about the life they want and then prioritize their time and energy to pursue it.

YL Tip: Take some time to breathe and rediscover yourself with help from Magnify Your Purpose™ and our Beginner’s Guide to Meditation post.

Young Living Peace & Calming

3) Catch some Zzz’s.

People with a balanced life recognize that prioritizing their day takes energy. Sleep deprivation makes it difficult to check off all the tasks on your to-do list and to manage your mood. But when the neighbor’s dog barks all night or your 5-year-old has a recurring nightmare, getting your eight hours can seem impossible. Increase your chances for a restful night’s sleep by practicing healthy sleep habits like having the same bedtime and wake time every day, shying away from screens an hour before bed, and creating a nighttime routine that tells your body it’s time to sleep.

YL Tip: Integrate the calming aroma of Lavender or Peace & Calming™ into your nighttime routine by applying it to the bottoms of feet or diffusing it before bed.

Homemade Thai Soup Recipe Instagram

4) Think about what you eat and drink.

When your body doesn’t get adequate nutrition, it slows down and becomes inefficient. Practice mindful eating to make the most of each meal and snack. When you focus on getting fruits, veggies, and other whole foods, you ensure that your body is running at peak performance. And remember to stay hydrated! Dehydration can lead to fatigue, dizziness, and other symptoms that can slow down your day.¹

YL Tip: This week, try our Cinnamon-Apple Chips or Homemade Thai Soup instead of take-out or packaged food. And what’s a balanced life without occasionally treating yourself to something indulgent? Try our Dairy-Free Dark Chocolate Peppermint Mousse for a sweet that’s also smart!

Young Living Cool Azul Pain Relief Cream

5) Get moving.

Regular exercise benefits nearly every aspect of your life. Among other positives, exercise can improve mood, boost energy, and lead to better sleep,² meaning a happier, healthier, more balanced you. Whether you’re lifting weights, walking the block, or dancing with your friends, do something at least a few times a week to raise your heart rate and your spirits.

YL Tip: Relax after a tough workout with Cool Azul™ Pain Relief Cream. It relieves pain in muscles and joints with a cooling sensation and refreshing aroma.

Young Living Gratitude Essential Oil Blend

6) Give selfless service.

Offering service and compassion to others can bring a fresh perspective to your life, and the more time you spend caring for others, the more content and happy you feel. It could be something as simple as a visit to a lonely neighbor or a kind note to a struggling friend. Whatever it is, do something to get out of your head and brighten someone else’s day!

YL Tip: Share Gratitude™ with someone you feel especially thankful for. Drop it off with a thank you letter that tells how special he or she is to you.

Young Living Surrender Essential Oil

7) Let things go.

Free up your energy by letting go of things you can’t control. Part of life is allowing some situations to be what they are and not trying to force them to become something else. Instead of fixating on something you can’t change, use your power in places where you have control.

YL Tip: Apply or diffuse Surrender™ or Acceptance™ and spend some time letting go. Consciously acknowledging and releasing your feelings can help you redirect your energy.

6 Essential Oils Your Skin Loves

For centuries many cultures have looked to essential oils to enhance their daily lives, perform religious rites, support wellness, and wear as perfumes. Not only are essential oils extremely versatile but many also contain naturally occurring constituents that are practically made for one particular usage: beautifying the skin.

Unlike skin care products that rely on harsh and synthetic ingredients, essential oils use their natural properties to brighten, smooth, and moisturize the appearance of skin in a way that leaves you feeling perfectly pampered.

Check out some of our skincare favorites to get your glow on!

1. Lavender

Lavender essential oil is the perfect place to start and a must-have in every home. This popular essential oil soothes and nourishes all skin types and is easy to incorporate into your skin care regimen every day.

  • Add a drop to your hand, mix with facial moisturizer, and treat your skin to a mini facial massage.
  • Make a basic homemade body scrub by combining coconut oil, sugar, and Lavender essential oil. Start with 3–4 drops and gradually add more as desired.
  • Create a spa-like retreat by combining 1 cup Epsom salt and 4 drops Lavender and adding to a hot bath.

Frankincense Essential Oil - Young Living

2. Frankincense

Frankincense essential oil has been sought after since ancient times for its many benefits, including its rejuvenating and beautifying properties. Great for all skin types—but especially beneficial for mature complexions—this luxurious oil helps moisturize and smooth the skin.

  • Boost your skin’s radiance by massaging a drop of Frankincense into facial skin after cleansing, followed by applying your regular moisturizers.
  • Add a few drops to your face cream or body lotion and rub directly into skin.
  • Massage into the skin on hands and feet after a long day to restore skin’s texture.

Cedarwood - Young Living Essential Oil

3. Cedarwood

Great for smoothing and nourishing all skin types, Cedarwood essential oil is a very versatile oil with a rich, woodsy aroma. Because this oil also benefits hair, it’s a great choice for nourishing skin on the scalp.

  • Smooth skin on the face or body by adding a few drops Cedarwood to your favorite lotions.
  • Add 3–4 drops to a bowl of hot water. Cover your head and the bowl with a towel and breathe deeply and slowly for several minutes to open pores and enjoy the calming aroma. Follow up with a facial massage that includes 1 drop of Cedarwood oil.
  • Mix 5–6 drops of Cedarwood with a small amount of coconut or argan oil. Massage into your scalp 30–60 minutes before showering, then wash and rinse hair as normal.

Tea Tree Essential Oil - Young Living

4. Tea Tree

Traditionally used in skin care products for its cleansing properties, Tea Tree essential oil is great for all skin types but is especially suited for use on oily skin.

  • Use as a spot treatment by placing a drop on the end of a cotton swab and dabbing lightly onto targeted areas of the face.
  • Add 1–2 drops to your daily application of shampoo to nourish your scalp. Lather shampoo into hair and scalp, let sit a few minutes while enjoying its cool, tingly sensation, and then rinse.

Geranium Essential Oil - Young Living

5. Geranium

Geranium essential oil is a popular choice to help smooth and tone skin. This essential oil is great for all skin types, but it’s especially beneficial for skin that’s either oily or dry.

  • Add a few drops of this essential oil to a DIY face mask or use it during a stress-reducing facial massage.
  • Add 4–5 drops to a water bottle with 2 ounces of water. Spritz lightly over skin for a refreshing, revitalizing effect.

Young Living - Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

6. Ylang Ylang

Known for its sweet floral fragrance, Ylang Ylang essential oil also helps moisturize and revitalize skin. This uplifting essential oil is great for all skin types, but it especially benefits dry or mature complexions.

  • Add several drops into a carrier oil, such as V-6™ Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex, and incorporate into a relaxing massage at the end of the day.
  • Add 2–3 drops to your bathwater.
  • Add a few drops to your face cream or body lotion and rub directly into skin.

How to Choose your Savvy Minerals Foundation color?

Here's the Savvy Minerals Foundation colors.

To select your shade or shades you first need to determine if you are Dark, Warm or Cool.

If you are undecided if you are Warm or Cool, here are some helpful hints from Royal Crown Diamond April Pointer:
1. Check Your Veins — Push your sleeves up and look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. Are they blue or green? If they look more blue, you likely have cool undertones. If the veins look greenish, you’re warm.

2. The Jewelry Trick — Think about whether you look better in silver or gold jewelry Typically, ladies with cool undertones look better in silver and platinum metals, and warm-toned women look better in gold.

3. The Neutral Test — Think about what neutral shades flatter you best. Does your skin, eyes, and face look better in bright white and black hues, or ivory, off-whites, and brown/tan shades? The first means you’re probably cool-toned, and the latter, warm.

4. Eye and Hair Color — Your natural eye and hair colors can help figure out your coloring. Customarily, cool people have eyes that are blue, gray, or green and have blond, brown, or black hair with blue, silver, violet and ash undertones. Conversely, warm-toned women usually have brown, amber, or hazel eyes with strawberry blond, red, brown, or black hair. Their hair tends to have gold, red, orange, or yellow undertones.

5. The Sun’s Effects — When you’re out in the sun, does your skin turn a golden-brown, or does it burn and turn pink first? If you fit into the first category, you’re warm-toned, while cool tones tend to burn.

Still not sure? Here are some more tips from Kathi Glaze Williams: If you know your seasonal colors, then this may help you. Basically, there are light and dark cools and light and dark warms. Light and dark cools are summer and winters.

Winters are dark cools and tend to have rich and intense hair and eye colors and look great in bolder shades like black and red. Summers are light cools and look best in pastel shades like rose, periwinkle and sage. Your coloring tends to be more delicate.
Autumns are dark warms and look beautiful in the fall colors of moss, rust and terracotta. Think about leaves and spices.

Springs are light warms. Best colors are ones that match our eyes but we love to wear turquoise, watermelon and salmon.

One more tip! Gold is warm and Silver is cool. If you have a piece of fabric, like a shawl, wrap yourself in it and see which one makes you look better. Which color evens out your skin tones and make your eyes stand out?

Find Your Perfect Match: Savvy Minerals by Young Living Foundation

Say hello to a gorgeous new look and radiant skin with a little help from Savvy Minerals by Young Living™! Savvy Minerals Foundation provides a flawless finish that easily blends into your skin and builds from sheer to full coverage. With a variety of natural-looking shades organized by undertones and skin tones, your perfect match is easy to find!

Find Your Shade

Each tone of Savvy Mineral Foundation—Warm, Cool, and Dark—comes in various shades, with No. 1 as the lightest shade. As the number goes up, the shade gets darker. Using your undertone and the shade finder below, select the shade that’s closest to your skin. For your truest tone, look at the skin on your lower cheek, near your jawline.

Find Your Undertone

The first step to flawless foundation is knowing your undertone. Our Warm colors look best on yellow, peach, and gold undertones; our Cool colors look great on pink or red undertones; and our Dark colors have neutral undertones.

Not sure which undertone you have? Look at the underside of your forearm to find out. If the veins on your arm have a green tinge, you’re likely warm. If they look bluish, you likely have a cool undertone.

You can also get some hints from the jewelry and clothes you wear. Which metals and colors look great on you? Which make your skin glow? If you reach for silver jewelry and white, black, blue, green, and blue-red clothes, you probably have cool undertones. Tend to favor gold jewelry and ivory, cream, brown, warm reds, and yellows? You likely have warm undertones.

Ensuring the Perfect Match

Now that you know your undertone and shade, how do you ensure that you have your best color? Your perfect match should beautifully blend into your natural skin color. Keep in mind that if you don’t see your desired coverage after application, your color may be too light. Try choosing a color one shade darker to help you get the coverage you’re after.

To check your match, generously apply Savvy Minerals Foundation to your lower cheek, near the jawline, and look at the application in natural light. If it disappears on your skin, you know you’ve found the one! Remember that depending on the season—and your tan—your shade might change. Check your foundation often to make sure you’re always wearing your best match.

Pro tip: You can mix Savvy Minerals Foundations together to create a custom foundation shade made just for you.

Here are a few videos to help you get started.

Savvy MInerals and Ingredients

Now let’s begin with Savvy Minerals by Young Living which are formulated without parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, bismuth, talc, and synthetic fragrances so you can radiate natural beauty withoutharm.

Phthalates disrupt the endocrine system and the reproductive system and have neurological harms.

Here is a question that someone recently asked:

Can you explain to me, in your professional skin care opinion, WHY
"other" mineral makeup makes me break out in pimples??? I've always felt
bad not using it but just can't make it work on my skin. Can you find an
ingredient in the other mineral makeup that Young Living doesn't have that might have
been causing that reaction?
A: Bismuth is a metal mineral that when worked into the pores, aggravates the
pores and causes irritation and breakouts. Savvy Minerals does not contain
Bismuth.

Savvy Minerals by Young Living uses Arrowroot Powder and Kaolin Clay.
Both are calming to the skin, help to absorb excess oil and moisture on the
skin and make the skin feel silky smooth.

With Young Living's release of Savvy Minerals Beauty, many of my friends have wondered what makes it all so special and why they would make the switch from their current brand over to YL!

Chances are, if you use common beauty store cosmetics, you are wearing bismuth right now. Even high end, so-called healthy brands contain bismuth. So, super-sleuths, go out and look at those labels. What makeup brands are you throwing out today?

For those who just purchased the Young Living Savvy Beauty line, rest easy. Savvy is bismuth free…

On Titanium Dioxide:

The foundation has none. It's cosmetic grade in the blush and eye shadow. Even the EWG has pulled its stance on Titanium D. We use NON nano particles.Food grade TD is an issue, cosmetic grade non-nano particle TD is not in the same category. Any color with shimmer or pink tones will have it. Earth tones like MT dark wont have it. May contain traces of it because it is processed on the same production lines as the other products. Just like some foods regarding peanuts for example.

What about lead?

Lead makes it way into cosmetics via synthetic dyes and lake dyes. Savvy Minerals has neither in their lip products, mica's are used to color the lips (side note: which is why it's REALLY hard to get a TRUE RED lipstick without dye.) The testing is done three times to make sure that lead and heavy metals are not in the products.

Mica's are how you get color from earth elements without using synthetic dyes. It limits us on colors, but it eliminates coal tar, petrochemicals and synthetics.

Savvy Minerals and Color Matching

Let’s talk about color matching. One of the most common questions I have been asked is.. How do I know what color I should order? This question, while complicated, can be easy to answer.

First, we will start with color matching for foundation in the Savvy Minerals line. Currently, there are three color lines to choose from: warm, cool, and dark. Many times it is hard to know how a color compares online vs real life, so to begin we need to identify what the undertone color of your skin is. To do this, look at your veins on the inside your wrist. What color are they? Typically, veins tend to look either blue or green. If your veins look more green, you have warm undertones, which means you would want to select one of the three colors from the warm Savvy Minerals line. If your veins look more blue, you have cool undertones, which means you would want to select from the three colors in the cool Savvy Minerals line.

To really confuse you,you can also have NEUTRAL undertones. This means, you can go between having warm or cool undertones, depending on the season and even day-to-day. Individuals with neutral undertones typically have some red undertones (cool) but can tan easily, or depending on the season, can have more of a yellowish skin tone. I have neutral undertones, particularly in the summer I pull more warm, than I do cool. Just this week, I have worn Warm 2 and Cool 2 (which sounds crazy but I spent one day out in the sun and my skin got a little more tan!). Our Dark color line has neutral undertones instead of distinguishing between warm/cool.

Once you have determined whether you have cool or warm undertones, you need to decide the shade from your color line. Currently we have only 3 or 4 options (depending on your color line), and they are numbered lightest to darkest (1 being the lightest, 3 being the darkest). You can see all the colors compared to each other at the bottom of this page: See link below.

. If you buy a color and are not getting the coverage you hoped for, chances are you need to go one shade darker. This made all the difference for me!

Now what about eye shadows? Did you know you can use eye shadow to enhance the color of your natural eye color? A good general rule is to use eye shadows that are the opposite color of your eye color on the color wheel. For example, I have green eyes. On the color wheel, green is opposite of red, so I typically try to wear eye shadows with reddish undertones to help make the green in my eyes stand out. I love a good plum, maroon, and browns with warm tones for my green eyes! For blue eyes, shadows with a more orange undertone will make your eyes POP! Try a pretty copper, gold, or warm brown. Brown eyes are the most versatile (in my opinion) and can pull off a lot of different colors. I have found the plum, blues, and bronzed browns can really make brown eyes stand out!

I hope this helps! Color matching can be tricky, but we are trying our best to help all of you find the right color! -Haley Zitting

Toxic chemicals in over the counter personal care product

- Let’s spend a few minutes on toxic chemicals in over the counter personal care products that are detrimental to your skin.
• Here are several of the most common ones. Triclosan: used in almost every antibacterial soap and hand sanitizer. Affects male and female hormones, thyroid and contributes to imbalances in the immune system.

Parabens: Used as a preservative and germicide. Found in most skin care products, lotions, cream and deodorants. Found in breast cancer tumors, Banned in Japan and Sweden and under review in the U.K.
• Phthalates: Found in cleaners, lotions, body sprays, deodorants, and plastic packaging. Carcinogenic, damaging to reproductive organs, Already banned in Europe

Fragrances: Found in soaps, cleaners, perfumes, lotions, shampoos. May include Phthalates, neurotoxins, and synthetic musks. One of the top 5 allergens in the world. Toluene, which is responsible for: Loss of muscle control; Brain damage; Headaches; Memory loss, Speech, hearing and vision problems.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
Found in shampoos, conditioners, Soaps, cleansers and toothpastes. It is used to degrease engines and floors. Banned in Europe and Canada. Causes, hair loss, Cataracts, Rashes. Affects the brain, heart, liver and other organs.

Propylene Glycol- Found in cleansers, shampoos, lotions, deodorants, and toothpastes. Linked to kidney damage. Liver disease, Dermatitis, Can damage cell membranes. Rashes, Dry skin, Surface Damage.

Not all GREEN Products are Equal. Today it is called Green Washing. And it is advertised as Eco naturally, Natural, or Green. This labeling is just a come on to make you think that the product is Organic and good for the body. But if you look closer especially at the ingredients you will see the chemicals that re included in the products.

In fact the chemicals that you put on your skin are much more harmful than if you were to eat them. 

It only takes 26 seconds for the chemicals in your personal care products to enter your bloodstream. So what is in your Beauty Care Products? That is why it is so important to become a label reader and then choose what you want to put on your body.

Solutions from Young Living for Skin Disruptors

As I mentioned before many Young Living products can help with all of the above.
• Turn off electronics before bed
• Go to bed the same day you get up
• Weather Exposure; Too much sun can give us wrinkles. Protect our skin from Sun Exposure by making your own DIY Sun Creams with essential oils. Or try Young Livings Mineral Sunscreen Lotion. 


• LavaDerm™ Cooling Mist is an excellent product to use if you have had too much sun. I love this sun spray and use it during those summer months. I also find that it soothes and feeds my skin any time of the year. It has Lavender essential oil and aloe, Northern Lights Black Spruce oil, Helichrysum oil.

LaverDerm After Sun Spray is also an excellent option to use to soothe you r skin after you have been out in the sun.

Many expensive over-the-counter beauty products are little more than wax with no health-supporting ingredients
• Sugar
• Glycation creates Glycotoxins that produce wrinkles: A hot topic right now in the skin care world is "glycation" essentially, the idea that glucose (from carbohydrates and sugars) that you digest may attach to proteins such as collagen in your body and form new molecules called advanced glycation end products, or AGEs. These AGEs allegedly degrade collagen and elastin, causing them to harden and lose elasticity in the same way rust weakens and degrades metal.
• Lack of Minerals- YL’s Mineral Essence is a great answer to this.

What are some obstacles to beauty?

  •  Not drinking enough pure water then try this: Put Essential Oils in your water for flavor and health; Use Young Living’s HydroGize with an essential oil in the water
  •   Stress: Try meditating with Essential Oils, get exercise, Yoga with essential oils, dancing, Bubble Baths, Massage, RainDrops, Use the Aroma Dome                ;
  •   Lacking nutrient-dense food
  •   Digestive System not working properly
  •   Filtering organs malfunctioning-lungs, skin, lymphatics, liver, gall bladder, pancreas
  •   Environment Toxic Overload
  •   Chemicals in personal care products and household cleaners
  •   Not enough sleep

Face Mapping and Skin Responses

Problems with our skin may be a reflection of problems with different body systems. But a good place to start is in the gut. A good cleanse will begin to clean your body and is always helpful . You can see by this photo of Face Mapping that blemishes to different areas of your face correspond to different Body Systems. So if you have a blemish in a specific area look to see what organ it relates to and then address that area of the body.
• A good book to get for health and wellness and Young Living products and cleansing the body is Inner Transformations by Dr. LeeAnna Deardruff

We need to feed our skin from the inside out..What are some ways you feed your skin from the inside out. I like to drink water and add essential oils. I use the HydroGize water bottle from Young Living, which gives me added oxygen in the water and i also add a drop of peppermint oil to the water. Lots of Veges, fruits, nuts seeds, Smoothies, of various types. Celery Juice is really good for the gut. those are just a few...

What is Beauty?

Beauty is a combination of inner beauty (personality, grace, charm, kindness, intelligence) and outside beauty (mostly physical factors such as health, youthfulness, and complexion).
No one is symmetrical – symmetry is not an essential element of beauty.


But rather a Beautiful face is displayed in our health and vitality

Skin Types

It is good to understand which skin type you fall under, as this will give you direction as to which creams and EO are best for you.
Dry Skin: does not produce enough oil and tends to look dry and dull and is prone to premature aging.
Oily Skin: produces too much oil, looks greasy and shiny.
Balance or Normal Skin- evenly distributed, not too dry or too oily.

Young Living's Beauty School Events

If you ever get the opportunity to attend on of Young Living's Beauty School Events, please sign up. They are awesome! Here is a testimonial from one individual that attended...


I just attended the beauty school and cannot express how awesome they truly are! The lotion is so thick. I bought a bottle of the Lavender and it lasted me nearly 3 months, and that is using it all over. The serum is the same way. It went on so smooth, it sold out at Beauty School after the class and everyone got to try it, so I did not get any. Many of the ladies made the comment that the Toner was in their top 5 of YL products. You just need 4 drops on a cotton pad. The lavender soap lasts my husband and I exactly one month. The Art Cream...it is also very thick, and you just need a pea size to cover your entire face.
The smells are amazing! Please let me know if you have any questions. Like I said, my mind is fresh from just attending the Houston Beauty School!  -- Stacey Leach

Beauty School Tips

This years Beauty School was so full of valuable information on how we can keep our skin looking beautiful with all natural, chemical free Pure Young Living face care products. I am going to share with you on this blog many tips that we learnt at our classes. Enjoy!

Skin Basics

The largest organ of our bodies that has an average of about 20 square feet, is our skin. Our skin protects us, regulates our body's temperature, permits the  sensation of touch, heat and cold. Our skin is absorptive, water resistant, which means essential nutrients are not washed out and the connective tissues are in layers. The collagen and elastin for flexibility and strength.

The Epidermis creates a barrier, skin tone, pigment and proteins. The Dermis is the tough connective tissues, blood vessels, nerves, hair follicles and oil glands. And the Hypodermis are the fat, connective tissue and sweat glands.

Skin

Skin Renewal

New cells are born at the base of the epidermis. The cells slowly move up losing moisture and thickness and create a thin barrier on the top. The flakes are filled with kerotin. You need to exfoliate the skin. Younger skin should be exfoliated 15-30 days. Older more mature skin two times as long.

Skin are Regimen

Asians tend to have a more elaborated skin care regimen that most Westerns. 

Asians might use 18 products daily which would include 5 more more steps.

  • Cleanser
  • Toner/refiner/softner
  • Emulsion/moisturizer/lotion
  • Serum/essence/massage
  • Eye cream
  • Cream
  • Masques every day

A typical Westerner tends to have a limited amount od time in the day for daily face care products. This might be their typical daily routine.

Three Steps:

  • Cleanse
  • Exfoliate
  • Moisturize

Rarely do Westerners use masques and they tend to be on the run with their makeup!

It is also important to understand that our complexion shows clearly the type of food that we eat.

If we are having issues with different Body systems, you will be able to see this easily on Beauty face mappingour face through Facial Mapping, what body systems are having problems. So we can definitely be served by a simple Cleansing Routine. A clean colon serves the health of our body altogether and obviously our skin health.

Face Masques are very nourishing for our skin. Young Living has several Face Masques that are very supportive.

Creme Masque Prod #5173 $58.50

Beauty Masque Prod #5168 $89.75

As you know the Asians use masques daily.

After applying one or more of these oils liberally all over my face (carefully staying away from the eye area) then I apply the A•R•T Night Reconstructor over the top to seal in the moisture.  


Also, at night, I apply Animal Scents Ointment liberally all over my feet,
then wear socks to bed! It is so  economical and my feet look and feel like baby's skin.

BEAUTY REJUVENATION FACIAL MASSAGE

Preparation:

  1. Place a warm towel on your face. Gently wipe off any dirt or debris. If time permits, we suggest cleaning your face with your favorite Young Living product.
  2. One at a time, gently and quickly tap each of your fingers on your face. This will bring the blood to the surface and stimulate your nervous system.
  3. Put a small amount of  A.R.T®Creme Masque on your fingertips. (The massage will be most beneficial if you keep a small amount of product on your fingers.)

Eye Area:

  1. Place the pad of your index and middle fingers on the side of your nose.
  2. Hold for 3-4 seconds.
  3. Sweep your fingers toward your ears until your fingers fall off your face.
  4. Repeat 3 times to bring energy to your under-eye area.

Forehead:

  1. With the pads of your left fingers on your left eyebrow, sweep your fingers up to your hairline with a firm, circular motion.
  2. Repeat this action on the right side.

Jawline:

  1. Beginning with the left side of your face, place the index and middle finger pads of your left hand on your chin. (Your index finger is on top of your chin; your middle finger is underneath.)
  2. With a firm yet gentle motion, move your fingers from your chin and up your jawline until you reach your ears.
  3. Repeat on the right side.
  4. Alternate 3 times, making a total of 6 lifting movements.

Neck:

  1. Place your left hand on the left side of your neck with your fingers pointing toward your left ear. Your pinky finger will be closest to your jawline, while your thumb will be closest to your décolletage.
  2. Start at the base of your neck and slide your hand up your neck.
  3. Alternate with the right side.
  4. With just your fingers, alternate your hands while gently massaging your windpipe.

This quick massage will heighten blood flow, helping your skin keep its pliancy and tone. We suggest using A.R.T®Creme Masque because it is good for all skin types. When using your favorite Young Living moisturizer—A.R.T® Day ActivatorA.R.T® Night Reconstructor, Sandalwood Moisture Cream, or Boswellia Wrinkle Cream —we suggest adding the following essential oils to meet the individual needs of your skin.*

NORMAL SKIN

AŸRŸT Day Activator or AŸRŸT Night Reconstructor

Add 1-2 drops of the following essential oils:

  1. Geranium
  2. Lavender

DRY SKIN

AŸRŸT Day Activator or AŸRŸT Night Reconstructor

Add 1-2 drops of the following essential oils:

  1. Geranium
  2. Roman Chamomile

MATURE SKIN

AŸRŸT Day Activator or AŸRŸT Night Reconstructor

Add 1-2 drops of the following essential oils:

  1. Clary Sage
  2. Neroli

*If you have never applied the above oils on your skin, conduct a patch test.

Creme of the Crop

The A·R·T® Creme Masque, one of three new and exciting A·R·T products launched at the 2012 International Grand Convention, was designed to complement the existing Young Living skin-care line. After all, it adds an extra dimension to your skin-care routine: a pampering, spa treatment in the comfort of your own home.

The Creme Masque’s unique blend of spa-quality ingredients helps support the look of youthfulness present in your skin. You see, as we age, the moisture in our skin diminishes significantly. Hyaluronic acid, one of the main ingredients in the Creme Masque, is an excellent moisturizer that helps support skin elasticity and hydration.

The benefits of the Creme Masque are further supported by other concentrated ingredients such as aloe vera, Avena sativa (oat), fractioned coconut oil, green tea, and squalane that provide a complex of antioxidants and vitamins to help moisturize, soothe, and support healthy skin. Skin luminescence and brilliance is also promoted through a unique combination of liquid crystals.

So what differentiates this formula from other skin-care products on the market? Simply put, our product is perfected by the beneficial properties of pure essential oils. The specially formulated Creme Masque essential oil blend features exotic vetiver and davana, plus Roman chamomile, ylang ylang, geranium, vanilla, ocotea, and jasmine.

We recommend using the Creme Masque 2–3 times per week following facial cleansing with A·R·T Gentle Foaming Cleanser. Gently apply a thin layer on the face, relax for 15–20 minutes, and rinse off any remaining masque residue. Follow up with A·R·T Purifying Toner and your preferred Young Living moisturizing cream.*

ART Skin Care System

My husband had age spots on the backs of his hands. He decided to use
Frankincense on one hand and nothing on the other. The age spots on the
hand where he used Frankincense have completely disappeared. The other
hand looks the same as always. He used one drop of Frankincense and
rubbed it into the back of his hand twice a day (morning and evening).
He noticed a difference in coloration in about 2 weeks, and after 2
months, the spots on the Frankincensed hand were gone.

Haven't tried other oils for this, but the Frankincense worked great.

Blessings and Light,

Jacqui Close ART Essential Rewards

 

My daughter-in-law has a terrific testimony.

The first year that ART Skin Care System  was introduced, she started using it. YL had the ultraviolet camera there and Thrisha's picture came out almost totally black.
Black dots show sun damage. She is very fair and used no sunscreen during childhood. She was almost totally covered in freckles also.

After 8 months, the ultraviolet camera showed about 75% improvement and her freckles are almost unnoticeable!

Also, I have had a black spot on my cheek for as long as I can remember.
Recently the spot has started flaking off. It is now just a small pink dot.

MaryLou Jacobsen of Young Living’s U.S. office was amazed when she saw her own before and after photos!
“I’ll be the first to admit that I was a skeptic. I was asked to participate in a focus group at the corporate office and started using the A·R·T System. While I immediately noticed softer skin, I didn’t feel like it was improving the
overall appearance of my skin. After all, you look at yourself in the mirror everyday and it’s difficult to see subtle changes. Six weeks later, the photographer took my after shot and said, “you had better come down and take a look at this.” I was shocked! The difference in my before and after photo was unbelievable! The fine lines and wrinkles had almost disappeared, the bulge under my eye had tightened and my crows feet were half what they used to be. The results are truly amazing!”


The A·R·T skin care system contains a Day Activator, Night Reconstructor and Gentle Foaming Cleanser and Purifying Toner. ART Essential Rewards


Formulated from naturally occurring sugars and Young Living’s proprietary blend of pure essential oils, the cleanser gently removes oil, dirt and makeup. Free of any harsh astringents, it leaves skin feeling hydrated, clean and soft.


The Day Activator moisturizer is a light, water-based face and neck cream that absorbs quickly - perfect for wearing under makeup and sunscreen.

The Night Reconstructor moisturizer is a medium-boded, water-based face and neck cream with enhanced moisturizers for maximum hydration while you sleep. The enzymes work in balance with each other to continually reinforce your body’s ability to replenish DNA for a more complete and
effective skincare system.

A.R.T.® Renewal Serum

  • Is an intricate blend of exotic orchids petals and essential oils that helps protect and revitalize skin.
  • These premium ingredients work in harmony to
  • deeply nourish and
  • hydrate the face,
  • creating vibrancy and health that radiates from within.

Ingredients:

Aqua (Water), Condensed Herbal Extracts: Speranskia Tuberculata Whole Plant, Eucommia Ulmoides Bark, Glycine Tomentella Root, Astragalus Mongholicus Root, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root, Phalaenopsis Amabilis (Orchid) Flower, Condensed Herbal Extracts II: Torenia Concolor Whole Plant, Commiphora Myrrha Resin, Boswellia Carteri Resin, Spatholobus Suberectus Stem, Angelica Polymorpha Sinensis Root, Liquidambar Formosana Dried Fruit, Crocus Sativus Flower, Chamomilla Recutita Flower, Niacinamide, Hydrolyzed Oat Protein, Phenoxyethanol, Tremella Fuciformis Polysaccharide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydrogenated Lecithin

The ART Beauty Masque and Renewal Serum were two of the ground-breaking products launched at the Young Living International Grand Convention in June. Their most distinctive feature, orchid extract, is currently at the height of research in Taiwan and is hailed for its moisturizing properties.* Traditionally, orchids have been used in perfume by the Chinese and have been associated with purity and longevity.* ART-Beauty-School-Blog-300x223-150x150

The Beauty Masque and Renewal Serum also contain herbs and botanicals commonly used in Chinese medicine for supporting skin health and beauty. They include Eucommia ulmoides extract, Polygonum cuspidatum root (Japanese knotweed), and Tremella fuciformis. Eucommia has been historically used to support the skin’s elasticity, to moisturize, and to provide resveratrol (from Polygonum cuspidatum).*

Most importantly, these products are enhanced with the natural benefits of essential oils! Infused with Young Living’s Stress Away™ blend, the Beauty Masque encourages you to relax* and enjoy your own home-spa experience. The Renewal Serum contains Sensation™ essential oil blend for a delightfully calming aroma.*

The ART Beauty Masque uses a unique cloth mask to effectively deliver moisturizing ingredients to all areas of the face. Little known in the United States, this application process is Beauty-mask-promo1-300x300-150x150very popular in Asia. Simply apply and relax as active ingredients continuously dispense while you wear the mask. It is recommended that you leave the mask on for 20 minutes twice weekly for optimal results.

The ART Renewal Serum is designed for everyday use, twice daily, morning and night. After cleansing with the ART Gentle Foaming Cleanser, apply one pump of serum to the face, neck, décolletage, hands, or other areas requiring application. The serum’s low molecular weight ingredients allow faster and deeper penetration into the skin and contain more concentrated active ingredients than creams or lotions. Follow up with the ART Day Activator or Night Reconstructor.

Orchid facts:

The orchid extract in the new AŸRŸT products is from the species Phalaenopsis amabilis, also called the Moon OrchidOrchid4

Vanilla is a member of the orchid family.

The largest orchid flower is 10 inches long, and the smallest is 0.08 inches long.

An orchid can live indefinitely with proper care. Some orchid plants have been in families for 50+ years, passed down through the generations.

 

This is taken from The Essential Edge News Vol. 3,4 April 2013

Following our recent Young Living Beauty School Event, I received questions about the research behind our A.R.T ™ orchid line, which includes two wonderful products: A.R.T Beauty Masque and A.R.T Renewal serum.

The benefits of both of these products, and specifically the use of  the orchid flower, are based on thousands of years of Chinese herbal medicine. It is believed that orchids have the ability to absorb and retain moisture and adapt well to many extreme environments. The longevity of the flowers is the key benefit that is utilized for skin care.

Orchid extracts are used for their intense moisturizing effect and for their ability to help delay senescence-or natural aging-by supporting the strength of the skin's main proteins. Orchid-flower

Another valuable ingredient found in our A.R.T orchid line is Japanese knotweed- a polygonum that has been traditionally used for its wound healing properties and for its ability to support healthy skin and provide protection against the effect of free radicals. The Japanese use this plant in order to prepare a tea called Itadori, a word that means well-being. This and many other properties that may help generate youthful-feeling and -looking skin are found in the A.R.T orchid line.

The effect of essential oils in both orchid products is very beneficial. Both blends-Stress Away™ in the Beauty Masque and Sensation ™ in the Renewal Serum- provide calming and soothing not only to the skin but also to the psyche and our emotions. 

Use A.R.T Renewal Serum after cleansing your face morning and night. Be sure to follow up with your favorite Young Living moisturizer. Incorporate the Beauty Masque a couple of times a week to help promote a younger, healthier-looking you.

5 Quick Tips for Mental Sharpness

For many, this time of year can be hectic and exhausting. Between juggling busy school schedules, meeting deadlines, and everything else on your plate, having a sharp mind to stay on top of it all is crucial. I’m excited to share five practices I have recently discovered that support my mental focus and increase my energy levels:

 

1. Before going to sleep, I slice ¼ of a cucumber and add the slices to 12 ounces of water, then leave it in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, I add a few drops of Citrus Fresh essential oil blend to the cucumber-infused water and drink it within 10 minutes of waking. I’ve discovered that drinking this refreshing beverage at the start of my day uplifts and wakens my body systems—after all, the brain’s functions are dependent on proper hydration!

 

2. Every day I try to take 15 minutes to calm my mind and focus my thoughts. Meditation can be as simple as sitting quietly or concentrating on your breathing.  Meditation has been practiced for centuries and is known for unique benefits such as increased awareness, decreased stress levels, and heightened mental clarity. I often diffuse Clarity essential oil blend or Peppermint essential oil to enhance my reflection time.

 

3. Sometime around my midday meal, I like to take advantage of a few cognition-supporting supplements. NingXia Nitro is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up, full of beneficial ingredients like D-Ribose and Korean ginseng extract. I also like to give my mind an extra boost with MindWise, Young Living’s new advanced brain wellness serum. Providing generous amounts of vitamin D, CoQ10, ALCAR, and GPC, MindWise is my go-to supplement for supporting my mind and memory.*

 

4. In addition to stimulating multiple areas of the brain, music helps minimize background noise and distractions. I have found classical music to be my ultimate distraction reducer. Whether I am at work, completing household chores, or simply relaxing, listening to my favorite composers keeps my mind motivated and engaged.

 

I’ll share my fifth tip with a special recipe on Monday, September 15, so be sure to visit the blog again soon! Until then, leave a comment with your tips for staying sharp and alert during the back-to-school season, and you’ll be automatically entered to win a free bottle of MindWise! Three winners will be randomly selected and announced in my September 15 post. Good luck!

A Savory Einkorn Breakfast to Start the Day Right

Chaotic mornings often lead us to either wolf down an unhealthy breakfast or skip the meal altogether, but neither will give your body the pep you need to make it through your day! In my last post, I shared a few tips to support energy and mental focus throughout the day, and today I offer my final suggestion—a delicious and fortifying morning meal, so you can start off on the right foot.

To create a recipe that is low in gluten and provides both fiber and protein, I have integrated Gary’s True Grit Einkorn Spaghetti into a savory breakfast. You can cook fresh spaghetti or use leftover spaghetti from a previous meal.

Ingredients:

½ box of Gary’s True Grit Einkorn Spaghetti, precooked

2 handfuls of organic baby spinach

1 ½ cups cherry tomatoes, halved

5 cloves roasted garlic, chopped

¾ cup chicken stock

3–4 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon ground flax

4 drops Basil Essential Oil

3 drops Lemon Essential Oil

2–3 eggs

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Serves 2

  1. In a large saucepan, combine garlic, flaxseed, olive oil, and chicken stock. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring continuously.
  2. Add spinach and tomatoes to saucepan and cook until tomatoes become tender.
  3. Drop Basil and Lemon essential oils into the pan and mix thoroughly.*
  4. Place the cooked spaghetti directly into the pan and stir until all the pasta has been integrated into the sauce. Once pasta becomes warm, remove from heat.
  5. In a separate pan, cook eggs as desired (over easy or poached is recommended). Divide pasta onto two plates and place the eggs on top of each serving.

 

Voila! You now have a unique, simple, and satisfying way to start the morning. This recipe can be customized too—simply swap out the vegetables for your own take on this easy-to-make breakfast.

We would love to hear how you have incorporated the new Einkorn products into your favorite recipes. Leave us a comment and share your newest meal idea with us!

In our last blog post, we challenged members to share their tips for staying sharp during the back-to-school season. Our randomly selected winners are: CassieK, Distributor; Sammye L., Senior Star; and Linda D., Distributor. Congratulations and thanks to everyone who participated!

—Blair Lloyd, Young Living International and Portfolio Brand Associate

* Although heating essential oils may diminish their beneficial properties, the oils used in this recipe are for flavor only. If desired, you may add the essential oils after the spaghetti is already warmed.

The AromaDome by Julie Chertow

Julie Chertow has created a wonderful modality to use for balancing and restoring our body, mind and emotions to wellness. It is called an AromaDome. It is a tent like structure with a cold air diffuser attached that disperses essential oils in a concentrated area. This has a tremendous effect on our Limbic system and reception of essential oils into our bodies. I am looking forward to receiving one and sharing with my family and friends.

 

For breath is life, and if you breathe well you will live long on earth.
~Sanskrit Proverb



In Sanskrit, pranayama is considered the Science of Breath. Prana is the life force that permeates our beings. When we breathe more fully and deeply, we become more aware, more intuitive, more alert, calmer, and have an integration of body, mind, and spirit. Breathing deeply massages the internal organs, increasing circulation and bringing nutrients to all parts of the body. Inhaling through our nose filters out particulates and has a more direct effect to stimulate our brain. Repressing breathing can actually repress feelings. There is a common lineage shared among the words “spirit,” “inspiration,” and “respiration.” Oxygen nourishes every cell in our being.

Our lungs expand and contract about twenty thousand times a day. The average person draws in twelve breaths a minute. This process brings oxygen and prana into the body and eliminates carbon dioxide. Through our lungs we are directly connected to our environment.

Let’s trace the intricate path that essential oils take through our olfactory system – it is a brilliant system! The membranes in our olfactory are very small and are protected by the lining of our nose. Housed in the lining are 800 million nerve endings that receive the vaporized oil particles. The particles go on their way through the olfactory bulb and impulses are then transported to the limbic region of our brain and the sensory area at the base of our brain, then passing through the pituitary and pineal glands as well as to our amygdala, which is the brain center where emotions are stored and released (often the emotions of trauma and fear). The sense of smell is the only one of the five senses directly linked to the limbic lobe of the brain, our emotional control center. All of the areas mentioned are stimulated by only one breath of a pure unadulterated essential oil. With this in mind, go ahead and get one of your favorite oils now and take some good breaths in your Aroma Dome®. Envision the oil particles traveling this pathway and all that is being affected!

Our pineal gland is housed in the limbic part of our brain. Our pineal gland is our direct access to our higher self, our true divine nature. Oxygen or the lack of it greatly affects our brain. We have a highly sophisticated communication system between our receptors and our nerve endings that effect many functions. I am not a scientist just very fascinated as to the vastness of our brain… and how the oils affect it. I have written about my experience and observations in my book,

After cleansing with the ART Gentle Foaming Cleanser, apply one pump of serum to the face, neck, décolletage, hands, or other areas requiring application. The serum’s low molecular weight ingredients allow faster and deeper penetration into the skin and contain more concentrated active ingredients than creams or lotions. Follow up with the ART Day Activator or Night Reconstructor.

Orchid facts:

The orchid extract in the new AŸRŸT products is from the species Phalaenopsis amabilis, also called the Moon OrchidOrchid4

Vanilla is a member of the orchid family.

The largest orchid flower is 10 inches long, and the smallest is 0.08 inches long.

An orchid can live indefinitely with proper care. Some orchid plants have been in families for 50+ years, passed down through the generations.

Following our recent Young Living Beauty School Event, I received questions about the research behind our A.R.T ™ orchid line, which includes two wonderful products: A.R.T Beauty Masque and A.R.T Renewal serum.

The benefits of both of these products, and specifically the use of  the orchid flower, are based on thousands of years of Chinese herbal medicine. It is believed that orchids have the ability to absorb and retain moisture and adapt well to many extreme environments. The longevity of the flowers is the key benefit that is utilized for skin care.

Orchid extracts are used for their intense moisturizing effect and for their ability to help delay senescence-or natural aging-by supporting the strength of the skin's main proteins. Orchid-flower

Another valuable ingredient found in our A.R.T orchid line is Japanese knotweed- a polygonum that has been traditionally used for its wound healing properties and for its ability to support healthy skin and provide protection against the effect of free radicals. The Japanese use this plant in order to prepare a tea called Itadori, a word that means well-being. This and many other properties that may help generate youthful-feeling and -looking skin are found in the A.R.T orchid line.

The effect of essential oils in both orchid products is very beneficial. Both blends-Stress Away™ in the Beauty Masque and Sensation ™ in the Renewal Serum- provide calming and soothing not only to the skin but also to the psyche and our emotions. 

Use A.R.T Renewal Serum after cleansing your face morning and night. Be sure to follow up with your favorite Young Living moisturizer. Incorporate the Beauty Masque a couple of times a week to help promote a younger, healthier-looking you.
