Partnering with Thieves for a Healthy Winter

What?  Who in their right mind would partner with Thieves?  Do they want to get locked up?!!

Nah…I am perfectly sane.  I just know that staying healthy is a much higher choice than the alternative.  To that end, here’s what I am doing to maintain good health this winter:

  • I am consciously choosing foods that will support my healthy immune system.  Like lots of healthy veggies and high antioxidant fruits.  A couple ounces of NingXia Red a day is an easy way to up my nutrient intake.  Supporting my immune system also means laying off the sugar and limiting my consumption of refined wheat products and other processed foods.  Those ingredients cause acid in the body, which leads to mucus and inflammation.  An acid body terrain also puts out the welcome mat for nasty bugs to snuggle in for the winter!
  • Since hand washing is essential to avoid passing germs, I have Thieves Foaming Hand Soap next to my bathroom and kitchen sinks.  The essential oil blend in it does a great job of cleansing…the soap is non-toxic, too!
  • My TheraPro diffuser runs a couple of times a day for 15 minutes at a time.  I use Thieves essential oil in it.  Visitors often comment on how great my house smells. Diffusing essential oils is a great way to make a house a haven.
  • My Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier is in my purse, ready to use as I fearlessly go on with my life.
  • Around the house:  When cleaning, I make sure to wipe down the big germ magnets.  You know what I’m talking about…the remote control, the telephone, door knobs, etc.  Of course, since I am extolling the benefits of Thieves, you just know I use Thieves Household Cleaner for all of my cleaning.
  • I usually drop a drop of Thieves essential oil under my tongue a couple of times a day.  It tastes good, and it seems to be a smart thing to do to support my healthy immune system.   Only use authentic essential oils internally.  I get all of my oils from Young Living.
  • A few drops of Thieves on my feet, NEAT (undiluted), is another way to use Thieves that I frequently utilize.  No stinky feet for me!

Can you tell I just love Thieves?  If you want your own parcel of Thieves, here’s where you can get some!


Show You Care With Raindrop Technique

Last summer I went to a 3 day CARE Intensive where I learned how to do the Raindrop Technique, VitaFlex, as well as a little about essential oil chemistry, the Bible oils, and emotional release with essential oils.  It was a fun, education packed three days!

My purpose in learning the Raindrop Technique was to have the know-how to help my friends and family with the oils when they need a little TLC.  Do you have anyone you would like to help in that way?

3137 Raindrop CollectionWhile going to the CARE class was great, everything you really need is right in Young Living’s Raindrop Technique Essential Oil Collection. (#3137) It includes the nine oils used in the protocol, Ortho Ease massage oil, and V-6 carrier oil.

To order an instructional DVD on the Raindrop Technique, go to LifeSciencePublishers.com.

So order your kit and DVD, invite your friends over to watch the DVD and practice on each other.  It is one of the best gifts you can give to someone you love!


A Dozen Ways to Use Citrus Fresh

1.  Diffuse while studying for a test to support memory recall and concentration.

2.  Diffuse Citrus Fresh for 20-30 minutes twice a day to create a cheery environment in your home or workplace.

3.  Apply a couple of drops to the ears, heart or wrists and wear as a cologne or perfume.*

4.  Make drinking your daily requirement of water (1/2 your body weight in ounces) a pleasure by adding a few drops of Citrus Fresh to your GLASS of water. (Don’t use plastic…essential oils etch or even dissolve petrochemical based products like plastic and styrofoam!)

5. Some have found that drinking Citrus Fresh enhanced water helps them maintain a healthy weight.

6.  Did someone wear those shoes that leave scuff marks all over your floor? Add a drop of Citrus Fresh to a cleaning rag and wipe them out!

7. Mix several drops of Citrus Fresh in V6 mixing oil for a full body massage to support the lymphatic system.*

8.  Blend 11 – 20 drops with bath gel base and add to bath water for a relaxing bath.

9. Freshen your carpet:  Combine 16 to 20 drops of essential oils with 1 cup of baking soda or borax powder. Mix well and place in a covered container overnight so that the oil can be absorbed by the powder. Sprinkle over your carpet and vacuum up the powder immediately to infuse a rejuvenating fragrance into the room.

10.  A few drops of EO on a cotton ball hidden in inconspicuous places around the bathroom will scent it as well.  This method may also be used for cupboards, drawers, and any place else you might need/want a refreshing scent.

11.  Get rid of bad odors in the laundry:  As the machine is filling up with water, add soap and a few drops of the Citrus Fresh.

12.  Remove sticky residue from stickers and bandages with a drop of Citrus Fresh.
