Spring is in the air!

OH How I how I adore springtime!!

The birds are coming out of their winter hidey-holes, singing their songs of thanksgiving!

The daffodils and tulips are standing up and being counted, bright and early.

The beautiful redbud trees are taking their moment to shine.

And the maple trees, leafing out with the promise of warm days ahead.

There is that one thing about spring. The scratchy eyes and sniffles that come with the changing of the season. Ugh.

Don't let that slow you down...just remember LLP!


LLP: Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint

These well-loved essential oils create a synergy that is refreshing and will brighten any spring day!

The combination smells wonderfully fresh and relaxing when diffused...just add 5 drops of each oil into your diffuser and enjoy.

Drop 1 or 2 drops of each oil into the palm of your hand, rub your hands together and inhale. Rub the rest on the back of your neck and behind your ears. You can also rub the oils on your feet, paying attention to the respiratory reflex points, before putting your socks and shoes. At the end of the day, relax with a nice LLP foot rub.

Add 3 drops each of Lavender Vitality, Lemon Vitality, and Peppermint Vitality to an empty capsule and take twice a day.

Create a handy master blend of equal parts Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint oil to make using this springtime favorite a regular part of your day!

Your Health is in Your Hands

Taking simple steps to boost your wellness can be your family’s best defense in making sure you feel healthy all year long. You can keep your immune system thriving by making sure that your healthy habits don’t create an additional toxic load. Be sure to choose wellness products that put you first – That means steering clear of harsh chemicals and toxins and getting an extra boost from the potent power of plants.

Make your health and wellness a priority by following these easy tips!

Get Back To Basics

Regular hand washing makes spreading germs hard. It's just as important to keep hard surfaces clean. Make sure you're putting wellness first at home and on the go by simply washing up!

1. Wash hands with soap for at least 20 seconds.

If you're keeping track, that's "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" from beginning to end twice. Be sure to lather and scrub the back of your hands, between fingers, and under your nails. Also, dry your hands thoroughly.

2. Cough or sneeze into your elbows

and avoid touching your face, mouth, eyes, or nose. If you must touch your face, make certain your hands are clean.

3. Spray down hard surfaces and frequently touched objects

like shopping cart handles, doorknobs, remotes, tables, and counters.

Let Thieves clean your house!

I absolutely love Thieves Household Cleaner! Seriously. I keep several spray bottles handy and am prepared for whatever happens. From cleaning up the messes my 15 year old cat makes, tidying up in the bathroom, to spot cleaning my wood floors, this product takes care of it all. There have been times when the electricity was out and I used my sprayer bottle with diluted Thieves Household Cleaner to wash up. Hey, it doesn’t have any harsh chemicals and is all natural and plant-based, so why not?!

These DIY cleaning ideas will help you refresh your house from top to bottom with a glass and mirror cleaner, deep cleaning scrub, and carpet cleaner. See how cleaning with Thieves makes your chores a snap—all without any synthetic or dangerous ingredients!

Glass and Mirror Cleaner

1 capful Thieves Household Cleaner
5 drops Citrus Fresh™ essential oil
1 teaspoon white vinegar
3 cups water

Add all ingredients to a spray bottle and shake well to combine. To use, spray windows and glass surfaces liberally and wipe clean with a lint-free cloth.

Deep Cleaning Scrub

1 capful Thieves Household Cleaner
2–3 tablespoons baking soda

Combine Thieves Household Cleaner and enough baking soda to form a thick paste. Apply mixture with a clean cloth, sponge, or scrubbing brush and scour the surface thoroughly. Let sit for 15 minutes, and rinse everything clean.

Carpet Spot Cleaner

1 capful Thieves Household Cleaner
6 cups water

Mix water and Thieves Household Cleaner in a spray bottle, shaking to combine. To use, lightly spray the spot and blot with a clean white cloth. Repeat as needed.

Diffusing Essential Oils

Diffusing essential oils on a regular basis is a great way to experience the positive effects essential oils have on you and your family. They are so much more than a pretty scent!  Here are a few additional benefits of diffusing quality essential oils:

  • Improves mental clarity
  • Uplifts mood
  • Calms emotions
  • Removes airborne pathogens
  • Promotes better sleep
  • Opens respiratory airways
  • Strengthens the immune system over time

When choosing a diffuser, there are so many options.  The diffusers offered in the Premium Starter Kit are a good place to start.

  1. They do not heat the essential oils, so the therapeutic value remains intact.
  2. They are designed with materials that will withstand real essential oils.  Many cheaper oils on the market are highly diluted and diffusers that are sold with them have lower grade plastic. Just don’t even bother. Really.
  3. The 4 options offered with a Premium Starter Kit are a good deal. For the retail price of a diffuser, you get a Young Living wholesale membership, 12 5 ml bottles of essential oils, AND a quality essential oils diffuser.

YOUNG LIVING’S DIFFUSER OPTIONS  – Includes the 4 options offered with the Premium Starter Kit AND other diffusers and accessories. Retail and Wholesale prices are listed. To save 24%, add one of the Starter Kits to your first order to become a wholesale member.

For The Love of Lavender!

Whether you use Lavender for its topical and aromatic applications or Lavender Vitality for its culinary and dietary uses, Lavender essential oil is popular for its fragrance, flavor, and versatility!
