My Choice in Companies

What is your ‘why’ for using Young Living.


Just a brief word as to why i chose the Young Living essential oils Company as my primary and ONLY choice in using or recommending essential oils. I know that there are very few small and private companies that produce high quality essential oils in the world and it is a matter of sourcing them. Young Living’s essential oils fit perfectly for what i wanted in a product due to their authenticity and guarantee that they are a pure, 100% chemical free (no solvents in distillation either), wild-crafted and organically grown by sustainable and ecological farming practices: that is, they use absolutely no pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or agricultural chemicals of any kind in cultivating and distilling their crops. What a treasure it was for me to find Young Living, a solid 20year old company today who has build a prestigious reputation as well as building many of their own global farms. Some companies have now even mimicked Young Living – using similar messages and formulations – so consumers beware. I finally found essential oils that I did not react to; could trust, apply on my skin, breathe and even ingest them. These essential oils are being used for healing purposes, even in hospitals today, thus their original descriptive word ‘therapeutic’.

D. Gary Young founder of Young Living Company plus grower, harvester and distiller of the Young Living crops, starts with nurturing the soil before planting by using a combination of minerals, organic mulch, manure and enzymes. Today, Young Living owns and operated the largest privately owned organic herb farms in the world now in 9 countries. 12 farms and upholds the prominent “Seed to Seal” distinction in the aromatherapy, essential oil industry. They have shown to have one of the highest standards in the world. All their oil samples are sent to two or up to five independent laboratories for testing, to be sure that they conform to the International (ISO) and (AFNOR) standards for therapeutic-grade essential oils.

But even more powerfully, Young Living set their own high standards of excellence and purity giving a new meaning to genuine, therapeutic grade essential oils – matter of fact D. Gary Young coined the term ‘therapeutic grade essential oils’ back in early 2004. This term was never used beforehand until the founder’s unrivalled expertise on the therapeutic power of the plants as well as his impeccable standards for high quality led to the creation of the world’s largest line of genuine, therapeutic essential oils and blends. Again, consumers beware of mimickers. I like to refer to the Young Living oils as “GTG” (Genuine Therapeutic Grade)!

Obviously, if you can find the same standard of edible and impeccable clean, environmental sustainable  essential oils then by all means, go ahead, they will be a great asset to you. There are some small and few companies that do… Make certain that they uphold to this high standard and you, the consumer, are wise to know a number of factors that make that difference, such as: the dedication of their grower; the location of where the plants are grown, method of farming, use of correct species, proper harvesting methods and the skill in distilling the oils, to name a few (much more is described in chapter 6).

Otherwise you will purchase essential oils that will not offer you all the marvellous benefits for skin care outlined in this guidebook. After all, the essential oil quality as nature provided is everything achieving the desired results of heath and glowing, radiant skin.

So I warn the reader once again: Buyer Beware! Quality products will not be found at the department stores, discount store, drug stores and beauty salons as they rarely contain pure essential oils. Many consumers are unaware that many health food store products or other direct selling essential oil companies contain adulterated oils (oils that have been processed with solvents/chemicals or have fillers/volumizers in them). The suggestions made throughout this guidebook apply to the use of Genuine, authentic and non-adulterated; ‘therapeutic’ grade A Essential Oils. I know that I am stressing this fact of ‘purify’ due to the potential ‘risk’ factor to you the buyer.


The company that I prefer to use and suggest to others – Young Living Company – encouraged it’s members or consumers to visit the company’s own and partnered biodynamic herbal or tree farms anywhere in the world. This allows you to become ‘in-touch” with and become “touched-by” the plants and the land. It was the greatest pleasure for me to meet D. Gary Young. president and founder of Young Living with his wife Mary Young. It was even more rewarding to travel with the Young’s while on expeditions in visiting six of the global biodynamic herb farms. On numerous occasions, I witnessed the farming process from planting of the seeds to the final product with D. Gary Young who gave through the detailed explanations. Hence the company has coined the process ‘Seed to Seal’ in claiming their distinction in the world’s production of essential oils.

Today, I consider both Gary and Mary as my dear friends and Kindred Spirits. I have marvelled at D. Gary Young’s honouring and connectedness to commune with the Nature Spirits (in the plants, the animals, the trees) before planting and cutting the trees. Young Living’s commitment to produce the finest and highest quality essential oils is unmatched in the world today. D. Gary Young is sought after for his knowledge and standards by many global markets.

Aromatherapy in ancient times was used for healing, beauty and medicine and considered a most precious substance that was the basis for trade for hundreds of years as evidenced with the Frankincense Trail documentation. You can become empower and also enjoy the miracles that the botanicals offer on so many levels: mental, emotional and spiritual.

Now go to the mirror and see for yourself, who is staring back at you! Are you impressed? Do you have some mind-chatter going on in what you see? Are you pleased with the way you look? Well, the best motivation for change may be in what you see in the mirror.

I sincerely trust that in this guidebook will inspire you to use herbal foods and essential oils, to continue your search and to further seek the treasures that are given to you from the sweet ‘nectar’ of the plants. In Greek and Roman mythology, the drink of the gods was classed ‘nectar’ – the drink that sustained their beauty and immortality. May you be blessed and enriched by the “essence” of the plants.

The Good Life – Lemon Droppers

I would go out there to say it that if you are reading this it’s probably because you are loving your Essential Oils and have seen some of the amazing benefits the oils have brought you. If you are a member of Young Living and have joined through an Essential Dropper then … CONGRATULATIONS! You are part of the Lemon Dropper family.

WHO ARE THE LEMON DROPPERS? 
Once upon a time there was a lady called Lindsay Teague Moreno. She was a mother of 3 girls and enjoyed scrapbooking her life as a wife and mother – no big deal… Until one day, someone introduced her to Young Living’s Essential Oils and like you and me, she fell in love with the oils instantly and could not stop raving about it.

True joy comes when you stumble upon something amazing like these oils and have access to share it’s magic with everyone you know so they too will be able to have the same benefits with these oils.  That is what Lindsay did when she created her first “replacing your medicine cabinet” post (before compliancy came about then she had to take it down…) and from there things went CRAZY. Read her accidental pay-check story here.

The Lemon Droppers team started to grow to a whopping 380,000 members strong in just 4 years! This is the largest and fastest group of members in Young Living. As a group (that includes you) The Lemon Droppers love our Essential Oils so much that all of us combined generate a monthly $2million worth of sales. (Imagine the farms and opportunities we are creating together as part of this amazing team) while improving the wellness of our family and the environment at the same time.

Check out our numbers taken in November 2016

Lindsey personal beginning is something we are all familiar with and something we can relate to. Through Lemon Droppers, this group has opened doors for so many other women, providing members with tons and tons of support and most importantly creating a brand and being part of an awesome Tribe.

Personally I feel so blessed to have been called into this circle of amazing, powerful, and humble group of beautiful women from all backgrounds. How I got to know about the oils was very accidental, perfectly timed, well crafted that only God could set-up for me. Which is why I will always choose to be ‘that oil lady‘.

Here are some of the available collaterals which has helped me that Lindsay has provided:

If you guys are keen to jump on the business bandwagon and start looking at this as a business the ‘non-salesy’ Lemon Dropper way,  let me know I would be happy to add you into tons of free ‘momtrepreneur’ closed group Facebook pages and Lemon Dropper resources.

Remember to set yourself goals and to take it one step at a time.

Love,
Sheila

How to have a chemical free home and life!

I recently returned from Young Living’s 2017 Convention “Fulfill Your Destiny” in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was extremely informative, enlightening and loads of fun! I couldn’t soak up the information fast enough. One of the talks I attended (Chemical Free Home) inspired me to write this piece. Some of the content are notes/slides I took down from the speaker and some I gathered from my own research. I hope this will help you to understand the urgency of moving away from conventional off-the-shelf products to plant-based products.

———————————————————————————————————————————

Fragrance is the new second-hand smoke. It is insidious and pervasive (like cheap perfume!). Like the frog-in-the-pot parable, many of us will not notice the danger until it’s too late. What you put on your body or inhale into your body is as important as your diet and exercise routine.

If you’re using scented candles, dryer sheets, fragranced sprays, air fresheners, perfume, scented hand and body wash, conventional household cleaning products then you are practically exposed and awash in fragrances 24 hours a day!  It is absorbed through our skin and into our blood stream, settling in our organs and accumulating over time.

Fragrances (and parfum) are made up of hundreds of synthetic chemicals – many of which are endocrine disruptors. Thousands of scientific peer review studies have linked these chemicals to diabetes, obesity, liver and breast cancer, hormone disruption affecting fertility and development, ADD/ADHD and Autism, asthma, allergies, and so many other health issues/disorders.

 

A few links to scientific backed evidence of chemicals found in cosmetics and the effect on humans –

Lotion ingredient paraben may be more potent carcinogen than thought

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4524022/

Asthma in Inner-City Children at 5–11 Years of Age and Prenatal Exposure to Phthalates: The Columbia Center for Children’s Environmental Health Cohort

Just because it’s sold in a shop does not make it safe! Fragrance secrecy exists because there is a giant loophole in the Federal Fair Packaging and Labeling Act of 1973. Companies are required to list cosmetics ingredients on the labels but exempts fragrance! As a result, there is no way for a consumer to know what ingredients are really present – hundreds maybe thousands of endocrine disruptors!

The European Union has banned over 1,300 ingredients from cosmetic products alone, while the FDA has only banned or restricted 11. The US works by the premise innocent until proven guilty. Personally, I don’t want myself or my family to be the guinea pig. Do you?

There are currently around 80,000 chemicals that exist on the market. Only the first 90 have been tested and removed. It will take literally decades to test them all!

Women use on average 12 products every day. It adds up over time. This is what we term bioaccumulation. You’re fine until one day something suddenly happens….

Did you know that the chemical DDT is still found in Americans’ blood after it was banned 40 years ago?! Seriously!

What can we do then?

You can’t do better unless you know better! Become aware. Focus on the chemicals you can control such as body lotion, toothpaste, deodorant, bath/shower gel, shampoo, household cleaners.

The Dirty Dozen – Avoid at ALL cost. Use the Think Dirty App to become aware of which products are dirty. Use the EWG website to educate yourself on products and ingredients.

Take note of what you use frequently and replace those products first. Choose 3 this month. Replace those first. Repeat this every month. Start with the kids. Take a look at Young Living’s Kidscents or Seedlings baby range of products.

Conventional synthetic-laden cleaners make indoor air 5-7x worse than outdoor air! In fact 80% of pollution we’re exposed to comes from INSIDE our homes!

Just removing all products with fragrance as an ingredient will immediately improve air quality in your home.  Take charge of your family’s health and wellbeing – ditch and switch!

We use the Thieves plant-based oil-infused household cleaner and product range. Free from toxic chemicals, it keeps my family safe and gives me complete peace of mind. Who has time to read all those labels out there?! Go with a company you can trust.
 
 

 

Did you know that absorption in your mouth is way faster than through the skin?! You want to be sure to use a toothpaste that is free from fluoride, dyes, synthetic perfumes and SLS!
 

Make sure you wash your produce well! The speaker shared with us a story about a truck driver. He shared how he transported animal manure on his truck followed by fresh produce immediately after without cleaning or disinfecting the truck in between!  Yikes!

Will changing out my cleaners to a plant based cleaner make a difference? YES YES YES!

A study was conducted on people who switched out personal care products for 3 days. In that time they found a 30-40% drop in the chemicals found in their body!

After 1 year on plant-based products like the Thieves range, I know you will have a huge change in your health as a result.
 

Wishing you a healthy, happy, blissful life!

Love,

Audrey

Dr Oliver Wenker Seminar – Micro Biome (Part 3 of 3)

We have come to the final bit of information taken from Dr Oliver Wenker’s seminar. Well at least from my own personal notes. For those members who went for the seminar and feel there were some key points that I have missed please mention them in the comments section of this post.

Once again I would encourage personal research. If there is something with regards to any information you receive, if you are sceptical about it, do the research yourself. People might be wrong and there could be scientific or testimonial evidence that contradicts what people say. There is a saying that I love that goes, “Believe nothing of what you hear and half of what you see.” ~ Isn’t this quote fantastic!

What is Micro Biome?
  • They are all the bacteria that live in us
  • 90% of our cells are bacterial cells
  • We harbour 100 trillion bacteria in our bodies, and 90% of these bacterias are in our gut
    • That is why our poop is really rich in information
    • The bacteria in our poop decides if we are going to be obese or not
  • Is your DNA your destiny?
    • What you eat tomorrow will effect the health of your great grandchildren
    • What you put in your mouth and how you live your lifestyle decides the destiny of your offspring and their offsprings
    • Antibiotics in some aspects are useful and have documented in saving many lives however;
    • Antibiotics does not cure viruses i.e flu virus
Join the Biocode Academy
  • Live life above the red line (healthy self love living)
  • Take back responsibility of your life
  • Follow Dr Oliver Wenker Bioacademy Symposium (eos2017.bioacadamy.com
  • Your Gut
    • 90% of your micro biome lives in your gut
      • Aids in digesting food, consists of your immune system, produces vitamins
    • It makes up of 75% of your immune system
    • Consists of your metabolism

Side Note: GMO Foods started being introduced to the us from about 1990. GMO Changes the way our bacteria work.

  • Glyphosade (RoundUp). This is found in insecticides. Glyphosate is an antibiotic and kills your micro biome
  • It is really important that our gut is doing well
  • DiGize Essencial Oil is very good for your body and the environment in your gut
  • What determines micro biome?
    • Vaginal Birth
    • Breast Feeding
    • Nutrition
    • Exercise
    • Glyphosate Treated, GMO Plants
    • GMO used in the meat industry (antibiotics GMO)
    • Age
    • Stress
    • Medications
    • Water Treatment
    • Geographical Location
  • Gut Formula:
    • 1% bad bacteria
    • food is most important for micro biome
    • more greens in diet
    • Think about your gut micro biome as your own soil. You don’t want to pollute it is processed or chemically modified foods.
the Human Brain

Frontal Lobe: Processes Information
Occipital Lobe: For Vision
Temporal Lobe: Hearing
Parietal Lobe: Pain Processing
Cerebellum Lobe: Balance
Brain Stem: Sex
All these areas of the brain

Two types of phenomena are involved in processing the nerve impulse: Electrical and Chemical. Electrical events propagate a signal within a neutron, and chemical processes transmit the signal from one neutron to another or to a muscle cell.

  • Brain uses 20% of our energy through electrical and chemical pulses to communicate with one another
  • Our brain consists of 90 billion cells
  • Functions at 268mph (That’s supersonic fast!!)
  • Each brain cells connects 40,000 synapses and causes 100,000 chemical brain reactions

In a nutshell, women have more grey matter where as man have more white matter in the brain.
So there is a difference between a women’s brain and a men’s brain. To understand the difference between a women’s and a men’s brain, click here.

The GUT AND BRAIN

This is where we tell you if you don’t know already ( I didn’t till now) how your gut is connected to your brain.

  • Micro biome and the Brain
    • The brain block barrier in brains blocks toxins from entering the brain
    • Remember that “Gut Feeling” That’s your second brain that located at the gut.
    • Neurogenesis is the process of creating a new brain cells. However guess what, in order to do this you must have a good micro biome.. that’s right, good gut health
    • Hippocampus: The hippocampus is a small organ located within the brain’s medial temporal lobe and forms an important part of the limbic system, the region that regulates emotions. The hippocampus is associated mainly with memory, in particular long-term memory. The organ also plays an important role in spatial navigation
      • Are we saying there is a cure for Alzheimer? I’m going to be hopeful about this and hey, it is involves me only to be having good gut health then why not?! No Brainer!
    • So how can we promote Neurogenesis?
      • Exercising 1/2 a day increases the size of hippocampus
      • Exercising also improves the micro biome by 20% (sweat exercise) – Walking on the other hand is also very beneficial
      • Essential Oils and the Micro Biome
        • Studies have found that not only does Thieves kill bad bacteria in your gut it also improves the good bacteria that remains – Don’t we love nature’s protection
        • Life 9 Probiotics,  Thieves, Di-Gize, Copaiba ( Carry these with you at all times)
      • Remember when I mentioned Males and Females brains are different…
        • Women and men use different parts of the brain to handle the same task
        • Therefore it’s important to take notice of Male and Female hormone regularity
      • Smelling essential oils effects brain waves too

Like I said earlier, it is important to always do your research, Dr Oliver is a researcher that has taken experimenting and researching into his own hands and we have been fortunate enough to have him speak about his findings. It was very rare that he associated his findings with Essential Oils although he did find that EO’s can play an important part in our Gut and Brain health, but what he mostly wanted to put across was the importance of having good gut health as an overall which includes more then just using Essential Oils, it’s about awareness, and what you eat and how often and what type of exercise you do.

I hope this information was useful! If you haven’t already, sign-up below to our oily news.

Chemical Free Home Workshop – Bangkok Thailand

We had a wonderful time this week at our Chemical Free Workshop in Bangkok with Audrey Li! Audrey shared with us wonderful knowledge and great tips about how we can kick chemicals to the curb with our favorite kit oils, we learnt about Young Livings integrity and dedication to the seed-to-seal promise, we even saw first hand the wonderful results of K.Nap experiment with Thieves and a piece of bread!

For the make and take, we made Peppermint cooling sprays, BugOff rollers and a jewelry cleaner made with our very versatile Thieves Cleaner!

We had 20+ people attending despite the pouring rain! Overall a great success, we were having such a good time we forgot to take more pictures 😂!!!! Thank you very much to everyone who attended with such open minds, those who generously brought friends so they could also learn about these amazing oils, we even had friends who travelled all the way from Pattaya to join us 🙏🏻 and a big thank you to Audrey for joining us from Singapore.

Dr Oliver Wenker Seminar – Thieves (Part 2 of 3)

Continuing from my last blog post on the Seminar I attended with Dr Oliver Wenker. We are moving on to his studies  and tests he has done on our beloved Thieves Essential Oil:

Thieves
  • Thieves got it’s name from the the Bubonic Plague which back that was highly contagious even by human touch
  • 4 Thieves Vinegar from Marseille were the first product of ‘Thieves’
  • There were many stories about these thieves and Gary Young found it had 4 common ingredients. Clove / Cinnamon / Lemon / Rosemary. Gary himself included Eucalyptus into this mix
  • Test were done where mole spores were released in the air and they diffused Thieves and noticed 90% reduction of mole in the air + it Thieves lasted in the air for one week even after the diffuser was turned off
  • Another study took place where a grounded airline that was delayed in taking off for 3hours and during that 3hours 70% of the passengers got sick from just the air bacteria that was on the place that was grounded
  • Worth looking into Neti pods with the use of x1drop of Thieves EO with your salt water solution to flus out nasal mucus
  • Ever heard of Economy Class Syndrome?
    • This is where you are squashed in your tight Economy Class seat which can cause blood clots of what we call DVT (Deep Vain Thrombosis)
  • Here are some Essential Oils that support Blood Thinning:
    1. Clove
    2. Cinnamon Bark
    3. German Chamomile
    4. Cypress
    5. Eucalyptus
    6. Fennel
    7. Lemongrass
    8. Wintergreen
    9. Basil
    10. Oregano
    11. Rosemary
    12. Thyme
    13. Pine
    14. Lemon
Thieves Cleaning Products

As you might have already read from our previous Thieves posts about Chemical Free Living but here are some additional information taken while listening to Dr Wenker talk about it:

Thieves Laundry Detergent
  • The 20-35 highly toxic chemicals are found in laundry detergent.
  • Some anti-bacterial detergents say they clean bacteria on your garments – well obviously but in fact science found out  that these detergent aren’t very useful in getting rid of the bad microbe but instead washes out the good. Therefore making it worst. Where as in fact you might as well go back to regular soap and water.
  • These chemicals remain on your skin

Thieves Antibacterial Handsoap

Image taken from www.mollieschambach.myoilsite.com

 

  • Lots of hand soaps claiming to have antibacterial properties have been taken out of the market
  • This is where we check out Thieves’s range of family friendly range of Thieves household cleaning products
  • Thieves household cleaners are;
    1. Plant based formulated
    2. Safe for ‘HE’ (High Efficiency)
    3. High concentrated formula ( up to 64 loads)
    4. Free from dyes, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances, optical brighteners and formaldehyde
  • Modern day food
  1. Is Wheat bad for your gut? You have to be the judge, I’m sitting on the fence with this. However has anyone ever said to you to go with your gut instinct? Well, this is where I would recommend you to do your own digging and research in the matter.
  2. Make our bread with non-toxic Ancient Einkorn

How do yYoung Living Members Support Healthy Detox?

  1. They control their body weight
  2. They support cellular energy
  3. They easy week and take care of their gut
  4. They exercise and sweat
  5. They use toxic free body care and oral care products for themselves, their children and their pets.

In my next post I will be writing about his talk on Micro-biomes.… stay tuned!

Brain Function & Weight Loss by Dr Oliver Wenker (Part 1 of 3)

 


Hi All, thought I’d share some of my notes from our recent seminar by Dr Olli Wenker (interesting name I know). I went there with my mom and my mother in law it was my first time going to a Young Living seminar with a speaker that flew down specifically to dispel his experience and studies about Essential Oil and it’s function on our brains. I’ll have to admit it sounded partially boring and I told my mom and mom in law  that we’ll chose a seat by the isle so if it get’s a bit dry we’ll make a quiet exit….

So turns out it wasn’t. I couldn’t stop writing down as much information as I could gather just by listening and avoiding as much as possible to not take any pictures of the presentation because they didn’t allow photography during the seminar, nightmare. Although I did sneak a few pictures of one or two slides only because I couldn’t write fast enough and I wanted to gather as much pictures as possible. The pictures you see in this blog is not pictures taken from Dr Olli but some visual aids that I researched on the internet for this post as to not bore you to death. But trust me, this is good stuff!

 ….so here goes….
Detoxification

Iman from http://www.edenspaskincare.com

  • Our body is riddled with over 300 toxic chemicals
  • 80 of these we already put on ourselves (esp. woman) before breakfast through, make-up, bath products, creams, serums, etc…
  • Our body consumes 2.5kg of very toxic chemicals every year! (Shocking!!)
  • During the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s the government started approving toxic chemicals into food, cosmetics, you name it products which is why now we are seeing a huge increase in chronic illnesses suck as obesity, cancer, neurological diseases etc. etc.
  • A test has found that a newborn baby just at birth already has 200+ chemicals in it’s body. Thanks mom!
  • Your body weight is a prime indicator of the amount of toxins in our body. (Body Weight = Toxins)
  • Test on breast cancer patents found over 40,000 toxins in the fat remaining in the breasts as compared to non-cancer women. What’s even more scary…
  • Children, on the other hand carry more fat in the brain
  • Women who are exposed to toxins will find that when they produce children generally by the time they turn 7-10years they will likely be obese
  • In order to loose weight you will need to detoxify your body
  • Tests have also found that toxins can remain in your body for as long as 40 years!
  • When you decide to tackle loosing weight you will need to take account of the ‘Brain’. Your hormone can tell the brain to be hungry making dieting very difficult to A. follow & B. maintain
  • One essential oil which helps with suppressing the brain’s desire to ‘feel’ hungry is Stress Away

  • Other great essential oils are Shutran / Grapefruit / Slique. They help by stimulating the
    lambic system of our brain which are like receptors and suppressing the  feeling of hunger
  • Your brain consists of the Lateral and the Ventromedial
    • The Lateral part of the brain are your hunger centre. Calming this part of the brain’s “hunger pangs” can work with inhaling Frankincense and/or the scent of Vanilla
  • Slique / Stress Away / Ningxia Red are some that helps with weight loss
  • Calming the lambic part of the brain makes us less hungry
  • Basically the best way to loose weight is 1) Watch what you eat 2) Work-Out 3) Essential Oils (of course!)
  • Smelling peppermind x3per day can help you loose 3k calories/week
  • Grapefruit increases metabolism
  • Getting less then 7hrs of sleep produces the reeling hormone that actually increases weight gain
  • Toxins are found in fatty tissue so one way in reducing weight is to also reduce your exposure to toxins
  • Every organ in your body i.e. Liver, Kidney, Skin, Lungs, Gut, Brain, Blood Cells are all working hard in trying to get rid of toxins in your body
