There are so many oils I have grown to love for a myriad of reasons and now couldn’t live without. I wanted to share those with you but also I wanted to share some of the other products I love that aren’t oils (although each of them does contain essential oils – how cool is that!).
My favourite essential oils
- Frankincense – skin support
- Peppermint – head tension & fresh breath
- Lavender – sleep support
- Thieves – immune support
- Grapefruit – detoxing & to curb those cravings
- Lemon – cooking
- Melrose – skin support
- Peace and Calming – winding down
- Valor – sleep support
- Deep Relief – discomfort
- Bergamot – uplifting
- Vetiver – grounding & sleep support
- Geranium (to read my story about this oil go here)
There are more but we could be here all day!
My favourite Young Living Products (that aren’t oils)
Thieves Household Cleaner (concentrate) smells so delicious and this truly all natural cleaner works better than any cleaner I have ever used on greasy stove tops and benches. I also make an easy DIY paste from it to clean the shower/basin/kitchen sink. You can also use the concentrate to mop floors, clean jewellery and…well… just about anything really. Everyone needs this product in their homes but ESPECIALLY other mumma’s because we all know how many days get messy when you have little ones.
Orange Blossom face wash + Wolfberry eye cream – these are the reason I look fresh (well as fresh as a mum of a 4 year old can look). A few years ago all I was looking for in skincare was whether or not it was vegan and cruelty free. I was worried about the animals but wasn’t checking the ingredients to make sure they weren’t toxic for me!
I totally encourage you to get the Think Dirty app (free downloadable app for your phone) and start scanning your products. By scanning your skin care and make up you can see just what is in it and whether or not it is actually safe for you to be placing on your skin (your largest organ). These products not only smell AMAZING and are all natural but my skin has never looked better.
Ningxia Red – High antioxidant drink that my family drink every single day to support our immune system, and every other system in our body. If you’re going to drink something yummy, why not make it something that is adding to your wellness?! Giving Austin a small glass of Ningxia every morning and afternoon gives me peace of mind that he is getting some fantastic nutrients and antioxidants even if he hasn’t eaten so well that day. For Sam and I it has been wonderful to keep our energy levels up throughout the day (and on a side note I’ve also noticed my hair has been growing like wild fire since about 2mths after starting it).
Progessence Plus & Endoflex – Hormone support! Every woman needs this serum and oil. I have found an enormous improvement in my everyday mood and also in my overall “happiness” coming up to that time of the month. As well as feeling more “level” and in control of my emotions on a daily basis.
Savvy Minerals Make Up – 100% toxic chemical free
When I went through all my make up and looked it up in the Think Dirty app I was so shocked to find out that although it was vegan and cruelty free it wasn’t good for my skin. Some of my products rated a 9/10 on the toxicity scale and I was blown away! For this reason I was so happy when Young Living launched their make up line here in Australia and I have been so impressed with the products.
Savvy Mineral make up is not only easy to apply and QUICK but also it gives great coverage for my tired “mumma eyes”. I love the fresh glow it gives me and although I like a more natural look you can definitely get a great full coverage look by using the Misting Spray and applying the mineral make up that way.
If you want to find out more about Savvy Minerals just check out the link here or feel free to contact me, I’d love to chat make up with you.
I really hope you consider beginning your journey with oils and taking your health and wellness into your own hands.
