When I first started using essential oils, I loved the fragrance but had no idea how powerful they could be for digestive support. I was happy to learn about the Digize essential oil blend, taking a drop on my tongue, or rubbing two drops on my belly soothed that bloated feeling. Now, this is one oil that I always have on hand.

Once I started combining the Digize with Young Living's other digestive support supplements - my tummy felt a lot better - and, today I wouldn't be without them.  Here are my top recommendations for digestive support:

  • Digize essential oil (comes in the‚Äč Premium Starter Kit!)
  • Life 9 probiotic (one capsule in the evening) 
  • Essentialzyme or Detoxzyme digestive enzymes
  • Digest & Cleanse - (when I need a little extra help!)

I came across a fascinating fact the other day - that inhaling the scent of rose oil can eliminate stress in under 30 seconds!  Our sense of smell is very powerful, and I am a fan of pure essential oils including rose oil, so it makes sense to me.

In this podcast I share with you the power of using pure essential oils from Young Living to freshen up your living environment. And, also warn of the potential dangers lurking in over the counter room fresheners and other synthetic fragrances.


Find out more about Young Living Pure Essential Oils, including the Premium Starter Kit which contains at least 11 different oils and an electric diffuser at - or go to and be sure to use my Young  Living Member ID #1734225 when placing an order.  (Signing up at Young Living - use my ID #1734225 as both 'sponsor ID' and 'enroller ID', thanks!)

It's probably not realistic to eliminate all stress from daily life, so the key is how well can you manage it?  Yoga and other forms of routine exercise can work wonders. Essential oils can also be an effective tool for helping to promote a feeling of peace and calm. The products I use are from Young Living, because they are medical-grade (unadulterated), so the quality is top-notch.

Lavender is a great all around oil and has been known to help with relaxation. Rub two drops of lavender oil in your hands then brush across your pillow can help promote a restful night's sleep. Dabbing a drop or two of Stress Away on wrists or temples can help ease frayed nerves. Stress Away (featuring the aromas of vanilla and lime) is one of my favorite essential oil blends from Young Living, and it seems to live up to its name.

I recently spoke with my friend and Young Living mentor, Carla Cohen, about her favorite essential oils for relaxation. In the podcast (click link above to listen), she shares a funny story about how she learned by accident the relaxation-power of Stress Away. Carla also shares another of her favorite de-stressing-oils, which you may have in your kitchen: Marjoram.

"It has an uplifting scent," said Cohen. "Marjoram was known as 'the herb of happiness' for the Romans, and the Greeks called it 'the joy of the mountains.'" But, Cohen went on to explain why you need the pure essential oil in order to enjoy the full uplifting benefit of marjoram, because dried herbs have virtually no manna, or beneficial powers, "It's a living organism with the essential oil," said Cohen.

Ruta-Va-La is another Young Living blend which you may find helpful in calming nerves, promoting sleep and managing stress. It contains Valerian, which is sometimes referred to as 'nature's Valium.'

While I can't promise you that essential oils will work for you in managing stress, promoting a sense of calm or easing anxiety, you may find these oils sometimes known as 'nature's medicine' can be of help to you and your family.

Essential oils have been around since ancient times. They've been used to promote health and induce a feeling of peacefulness in meditation (such as Cedarwood, Hyssop, Frankincense & Myrrh). Today, scientists are studying Frankincense for use as a treatment in brain cancer research, and for promoting healthy brain function.  

Because Young Living Essential Oils are very pure, it only takes a drop or two to be effective. You can also add one or two drops to a carrier oil (such as coconut, olive, or other oil) for massage.

A story that a good friend posted on Facebook caught my eye. The headline read “Scented Candles and Air Fresheners Cause Dangerous Health Risks.”  It went on to describe how synthetic fragrances in these products can disrupt hormones and make you sick.

Reading this made me feel grateful that I’d discovered Young Living Essential Oils, as these products contain no chemicals or toxins.  Diffusing Young Living oils will make your home smell great, and may even eliminate toxins rather than bring them into your living space.

If cutting back on the use of toxic chemicals is on your list of New Year Resolutions, I encourage you to consider Thieves Household Cleaner & home products such as laundry detergent and soap from Young Living.  They are effective and infused with pure essential oils, so you will enjoy the fresh aromas while doing chores using these products.

While you’re at it, consider what you are putting on your body. Many cosmetic products and lotions (even the expensive ones) contain harmful ingredients such as propylene glycol  sodium laurel sulphate. Young Living beauty products do not contain these ingredients and they come with the extra boost of pure essential oils, which have been used since to promote health and beauty since ancient times.

Certain blends of Young Living Essential Oils can also be used to help you stick to your New Year Resolutions. Tune-in to my podcast with my friend and Young Living mentor, Carla Cohen, to learn how you can use these delicious oils to focus on success, set goals and set the intention to make 2016 your best year ever!

Some of the oils to enhance goal setting include the Young Living blends of AwakenAbundance,Acceptance and Magnify Your Purpose essential oils.

Conifer oils such as Idaho Blue Spruce may bring your awareness to the areas of your life in which you need to make changes.  “A lot of the oils that come from the tree bark or trees, the conifers especially, can be very grounding, while at the same time can be used to help move through emotional barriers.” said Cohen.

If developing a new income stream is your goal in 2016, consider becoming a Young Living team member. It can be a fun way to make extra money while sharing these healthy, natural products with your friends and family. Please be sure to use my ID #1734225 when purchasing, so you join our team!
