Good Evening Everyone,
I can’t believe it’s a mere 40 degrees tonight… Fall is upon us. As much as I love this time of year, it means Winter is right around the corner… Sad… Anywho, tonight I came home with a splitting headache after work. I forgot to bring my oils with me to work today so I couldn’t wait to get home to apply peppermint oil to my temples (video here). Upon two seconds of walking in the door, I had the oil applied and laying on the couch. I set an alarm for 30 minutes and closed my eyes hoping for the best. Upon waking, the headache had subsided. 6 months ago, in the same scenario, I would have taken two Aleve and a 30 minute nap. The difference? Aleve would wreak havoc on my stomach after taking but I would tell myself, “This is what I need to do to get rid of this headache” and now, knowing what I’ve learned and experienced from Young Living essential oils, I’ll never touch Aleve again. Why help one issue just to open myself up to another?
After waking up from my little snooze, I reached over to our coffee table and picked up a magazine. I found a section on sugar in our diets. Did you know that Americans consume 45 GALLONS of sweetened beverages a year? What??? That’s non-sense. Sugar is MAKING US FAT! IT’S MAKING US SICK! Now, I love sugar – who doesn’t right? It gives you that warm fuzzy feeling like sitting in front of a fireplace, snuggling with your favorite cup of hot chocolate….yeah…. but then that moment is over and you’ve just consumed 200+ calories. No wonder I wasn’t losing weight before (more on that in my Fitness section). I have a better solution; add YL Lemon and Tangerine to your water! It’s so refreshing, quenches your thirst and puts that sugar ‘gotta have it’ feeling at bay. If you’re like me, I LOVE to have something sweet after eating a meal. I now reach to my Lemon oil water and that feeling subsides! Give it a try…. Remember: You can only consume YL Essential oils, they’re the only brand that’s therapeutic grade allowing for you to ingest. All other brands CAN contain perfumes, dyes and/or additives. Stay safe friends
