Take Care of Yourself

Updated: Apr 14, 2021

Year after year, May focuses on celebrating the mothers in our lives, whether immediate members of our family or those women who have nurtured us outside of our family units. What can we do to show them even just a little of the love and care they've given to us? What gifts can we get them to show our appreciation?

This year, things are a little different - we're not just looking for ways to care for our mamas this Mother's Day, but we're working on taking better care of ourselves and our other family members. This month's free products will help us all boost our vitality and overall wellness. And sometimes taking care of the person your mom has helped you become (and their precious grand-babies) is one of the best gifts you could ever give.

LONGEVITY VITALITY, 5ml (ER EXCLUSIVE): Add this oil to a capsule or put 1-2 drops in your water each day and notice what changes you start seeing. Not only is this an incredible blend of oils to help with the appearance of your skin, it also supports other body systems. It contains:

  • Thyme, which supports your liver, heart, and brain health

  • Orange, with over 90 % d-limonene (go research that awesome stuff)

  • Clove, the highest known antioxidant power as measured by ORAC

  • and Frankincense, which is just everything, you guys.

Talk about a powerful wellness tool!

LAVENDER, 5ml (ER EXCLUSIVE): The Swiss Army knife of oils. It seriously does so many things. Fun fact: Lavender is an adaptogen. This means it helps your body adapt to its surroundings by increasing the ability to combat stress and by promoting healthy physiological function. Try adding a few drops of Lavender, Copaiba, and Frankincense Vitality oils in a capsule at night to help your brain 'turn off' and promote restful sleep.

Lavender is also great:

  • in your diffusers for sleep (our son - who has Angelman Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy - loves it with Cedarwood and has never slept better)

  • sprayed on your clothes, pillows, or in your hair for a calming atmosphere

  • rolled on the kids' feet if they need some extra relaxation

  • to soothe the skin and support the body's natural healing process

  • as a wonderful addition to your skincare routine for its ability to moisturize (add a drop or two to your favorite carrier oil or other toxin-free lotion or moisturizer for an extra boost)

It's no surprise that Lavender is the oil Young Living chose as the main ingredient for the Seedlings baby line of products, too!

ENDOFLEX, 15ml: Your endocrine system is a HUGE factor in your body's overall wellness. Adrenal glands - a key part of the endocrine system - produce hormones that help regulate your metabolism, immune system, blood pressure, response to stress, and other essential functions. Pretty important, huh?

EndoFlex was specifically formulated to support your endocrine system and man, is it good stuff! This is an attitude adjustment "game-changer-in-a-bottle" for both kids and adults. If kids run themselves too hard, don't get enough sleep, or don't consistently eat healthy meals, their adrenals can suffer. Same goes for adults when they're sleep-deprived, over-stressed, over-worked. (Umm, hello - how many of you are now full-time teachers and making 537 snacks a day in addition to all of our other responsibilities?) It's super easy to put a roller fitment on your EndoFlex bottle for easy application over your adrenal glands (above your kidneys) and thyroid (lower throat) daily, or include in an Epsom salt soak. You can also add a few drops of EndoFlex Vitality to a capsule or water for extra support.

DEEP RELIEF ROLL-ON, 10ML: Yeah, this one is a must-have for its convenience, minty fresh scent, and the penetrating relief it gives for tired muscles and joints. Roll it right on your neck, shoulders, or temples (don't get too close to your eyes though) to help ease tension. It can help calm stressed nerves and soothe sore muscles, but also provides an invigorating experience. This combination of Peppermint, Lemon, Grand Fir, Clove, Wintergreen, Copaiba, Helichrysum, Palo Santo, and Vetiver (with a little bit of coconut oil to help roll on with ease and provide a barrier to help the essential oils soak in) is seriously a life saver after workouts or a hard day. If you know and love any essential workers right now, consider gifting this to them; its sleek design is convenient to have on-hand in their pocket to help them get through tough shifts.

FRANKINCENSE, 15 ML: This is literally one of those promos I wait for all year because I love it so much! We're talking almost $100 retail value just in this bottle alone, so it's basically like Christmas in May. The benefits of Frankincense are beyond amazing and it is one of my favorite oils.

If you want to really spoil your skin, Frankincense is a great way to do it. Combine 10 drops of Frankincense with 5 drops of any of the other skin-loving oils (ex: Manuka, Tea Tree, Blue Tansy, Rose, Lavender) to a dropper bottle or roller bottle and top off with jojoba oil. Apply to fine lines nightly for amazing results or simply add a drop to your daily, toxin-free moisturizer.

This is also fabulous for your brain; Frankincense activates the part of your brain that does logical thinking versus emotional thinking. The pineal gland in your brain loves it some Frankincense, so this happens to be a fantastic oil for supporting healthy hormones. The pineal gland produces melatonin and serotonin, so it's no wonder why Frank is also a favorite for promoting restful sleep.

Frankincense Vitality is a powerhouse immune support, an "overall health" oil, and is a staple in our wellness cabinet.
