Wellness is a choice

Prioritizing and living a lifestyle of wellness can be challenging.    Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. In our home  part of the remaining ‘well’ means keeping our immunity level up, our stress level down.  In addition, we use cleaning and personal care products that are free of harmful chemicals.    In order to do just this, each month,  we budget for wellness. This comes monthly in our  Young Living Wellness Box (Essential Rewards).   

(Side note You may say – I don’t care what they get in their box but oh you should!  Why – because my purpose for posting these un-boxings is to educate you on how you can boost your own wellness level.   So let’s hit the ground running with this month’s inform and un-box.)

OO8KJDzbRJ+F1V1gueqJjwMonthly  we get to choose which products come in our wellness box (Essential Rewards) January’s wellness box is a mixture of chemical-free personal care and home care products.  Plus essential oils & supplements that boost our over-all wellness and balance our emotions.  

My Go-to bath soap is Peppermint Cedarwood Bar Soap.  It’s the soap we shower with confidence we are not adding chemicals to our bodies as we bathe.  Plus it’s reasonable lasting me 6 weeks or .25 each shower.


ninxgia redOur daily nutrient infusion for health and wellness support is Ningxia Red.  1 oz  of NingXia Red is our pre-breakfast boost for all-day energy.

Our daily Probiotic is Life9.   I have to be honest – I’ve tried others on the market and hands down this little one actually works!  (It must be ‘cuz  it has over 17 billion live cultures from 9 beneficial bacteria strains, These capsules  contain special delayed-release technology so the ingredients release in the small intestine.)

Refresher: Probiotics are microorganisms that provide health benefits when consumed properly. Having probiotics in your gut helps you make the most of nutrients from your food, so when you eat a salad for lunch, you’re absorbing the most benefits from the spinach, carrots, and tomatoes. Having that healthy gut leads to a healthier immune system.\ Fun fact: Most of your energy after meals is used for digestion. With a healthier gut, you will maintain higher levels of energy to make it through that post-lunch I-still-have-four-hours-of-work-left slump.

While we’re talking digestion let’s look at DiGize Vitality.  This is an ingestible and  topical blend we can’t live without.   It’s a blend of Fennel, Ginger, Juniper, Lemongrass, Patchouli, Peppermint and Tarragon essential oils.  This Young Living propriety  blend helps reduce that gaseous or burning feeling you get in your digestive system when you’ve had that dish tastes amazing but your digestive system doesn’t like.  I make up capsules to have on hand.   Add 1 drop of DiGize to a gel cap, fill with organic olive oil, then place in the fridge for when you need them.  Keep a couple in your purse for when you or someone dear to you need them.

My natural & pure, gentle foaming facial cleanser is Art Gentle Cleanser. It removes all facial residue from make-up, gym sweat, and even gardening grime.  

Yesterday and the day before my social media feed was filled with posts about 2 hour waits in the ER due to sickness. Thieves image Thieves Essential Oil is our Young Living proprietary blend  formulated with the perfect blend of essential oils to keep your immune system in tip-top shape to help you avoid the ER or Urgent Care.

Thieves Dish Soap is made with the same essential oils as Thieves Essential Oil so I know it’s safe to use on the dishes that I put my family’s food onto.

Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil is an essential oil that gives a boost to our immune systems. It’s one of the key ingredients in Thieves Essential oil.  I add a drop of this ingestible essential oil to flavor my oatmeal plus receive the  added value of a boost to my immune system.

Chamomile has been used as an herbal remedy since ancient times.  Roman Chamomile Essential Oil is regenerative for the skin plus this essential oil supports our emotions.  It’s safe enough to use on babies. (be sure to get our Dilution Guide for Kids and Babies)  Try putting a few drops in your Epsom salt bath to unwind from a hectic day.  Testimony: I’ve had a patch of skin on my face that looks like it was burned.  I’ve tried every cream imaginable to heal it – no luck.  I started 2 days ago applying Roman Chamomile and it’s nearly healed!

Imagine… it’s late in the day, you’re dragging with 2 more hours until you can go home. Revitalize yourself by placing 1 drop of Peppermint Essential Oil at the base of your neck.
