March Making Changes
What if improving your health was as simple as use this, not that? Or as simple as grabbing a (better) product and using it every day?
Use This, Not That!
This month we want to focus on just how easy it can be to take those Small Steps that will equal BIG Changes!! It really can be as simple as Use This, Not That!
Have you ever heard of Bioaccumulation?? Bioaccumulation is “when a harmful substance gets absorbed by an organism (your body) at a higher rate than it can be excreted.” When we are constantly exposing our bodies to the harmful chemicals found in our everyday use products these are accumulating at a faster rate than our bodies can get rid of them. We can oftentimes be exposed to up to 300 different chemicals a day, and most of us don’t even realize it! How can your body thrive when it is exposed to so many toxins?
Consider making the switch! Start slow . . . identify those products you use most often and use the Young Living product instead that is infused with essential oils and is actually working with your body to support your overall health and wellness! Here are some switches you may want to make first:
Household cleaners ~ Thieves Household Cleaner
Toothpaste ~ Thieves Aromabright, Dentarome, or Dentarome Ultra or Kidscents for the littles
Mouthwash ~ Thieves Fresh Essence Mouthwash
Shampoo/Conditioner ~ Lavender, Lavender Mint or Copaiba Vanilla
Deodorant ~ AromaGuard Meadow Mist or Mountain Mint
Recycle & Reuse
I don’t know about you, but I LOVE making my own roller blends!! Did you know that you can reuse your empty 5 ml and 15 ml oil bottles to create your own roll-ons and custom blends?
In your Virtual Office, you can purchase a 10 pk of AromaGlide Roller Fitments (Item #4578) that you can use to replace the plastic orifice reducer in your oil bottles once they are empty. Soak your bottles in warm water with a few drops of Lemon essential oil for 10 minutes. Peel off the label and replace it with one of your own, add your essential oils and top off with your favorite carrier oil, pop on the roller top and you are good to go!
You can also reuse your empty Thieves Household Cleaner bottles! Yep . . . most standard spray tops will fit right on your empty Thieves cleaner bottle.
Featured Oil of the Month: OOLA GROW
“When you stop growing you start dying.” ~ William Burroughs
Oola®** Grow™ essential oil blend gives you courage to focus on the task at hand and helps you move toward positive advancement and progression in many aspects in your life.
Perfect to diffuse as you get ready in the morning or in your office. Add 4-6 drops of oil to your diffuser and enjoy the scent of 23 different oils that promote feelings of happiness, empowerment, and acceptance.
PRO TIP: If you love Oola Grow, check out the Infused 7 kit, they pair perfectly together.

For more info on Oola and targeting what areas you may need to work on first, head over to www.oolalife.com to take a free life balance test.
The term "fragrance" on labels can be a combination of several harmful chemicals that the company doesn't have to disclose. This is often why people get headaches when they smell synthetic perfume. It is better to play it safe and create your own perfume with natural and effective essential oils that you KNOW are safe.
Not only are these perfumes safe, but their aromatherapy can take you from feeling down and out to happy and confident in a matter of seconds.
Check out these BEAUTIFUL bottles provided by Silver Orange Boutique on Etsy. You can order these beautiful bottles through her shop, fill them with your favorite essential oils combo, and gift this perfume to anyone whose day you want to turn around.
Here are some of my favorite recipes.
Fill with grain alcohol when using a spray bottle. Fill with V6 carrier oil if using a roll-on bottle.
