Um.. Hi! Remember Me?!

 Ok, so it’s been a while since I’ve lasted posted.  Back in October I was planning on making some changes to the blog but then life sort of got in the way.  A very good friend of mine came for a visit and by the time he left I had decided to open an Etsy store selling vintage items.  My love for vintage got re-ignited and I’ve been having fun filling the shop with great vintage finds.  I grew up going to antique shows and flea markets and when I lived in Manhattan I was just blocks away from the famed 26th St. Market. I still have treasures from there where the above friend and I would spend many Saturday mornings going from booth to booth looking for something that caught our eye.  There is a link on the sidebar to see some of the items in my shop or here is a link to HotCoolVintage if you want have a peek.

I’ve also just started pinning!  OMG, very fun and highly addictive (you’ve been warned)!  Are you scratching your head and wondering what is pinning?  I just joined Pinterest (Pin Interest) and have made a few boards.  My favorite so far is my Young Living board.  I just love having a place to collect all the amazing things I find around the web including YL oils and my Etsy shop, as well as the places I’ve been and where I want to go.  I’ve just started but I know I will be filling in many more boards to come.  I’ve added a link on the sidebar so you can follow me or here is a link to my home page if you want to check it out.  You can follow all my boards or just my Young Living board.  

Ok, enough about all that other stuff lets talk oils!  Of course, just because I haven’t been blogging does not mean I have not been using my oils.  Not a chance!  Actually, I’ve got loads of tips I want to share but I’m just going to talk about Di-Gize & M-Grain today.  I’m fairly new to Di-Gize and so I haven’t used it that much.  Di-Gize is one of those oils that I have on hand for when we need it.  It is to be used for digestion, upset stomachs, bloating, gas pains or nausea.  Recently, I woke up feeling just ick – headache and upset tummy. Ugh.  Later that day my daughter and I were scheduled to participate in our Girl Scout Troop cookie booth.  Being cookie Mom for our troop I had all the cookies, the table and everything else we needed.  I was at the point where I was walking around with a bucket hoping that I would throw up soon!  Finally, it hits me Di-Gize!  I put a couple of drops on my stomach and hurrah, nausea cleared.  Di-Gize saves the day!  So ridiculously fast and easy.  I used  M-Grain for my headache and my daughter and I were able to do the cookie booth after all.  Simple, effective, easy!

 

   I’ve used Di-Gize on my kids and even though they don’t like the smell it does soothe their tummies.  I like to sneak beans into my tomato sauce.  My son, who would never in a million years eat a bean unless it was well disguised, is not used to them.  He usually gets a bit of gas afterwards so I use a drop of Di-Gize to relieve the discomfort quickly.  Works every time.    It can be used on young or old and it can be diluted with the V-6 if needed.  Di-Gize can also be taken internally to relieve digestion discomfort.  

M-Grain is one of my favorite headache remedies.  It really depends on where I’m standing and what’s in reach when I realize I need relief. I’ve had this bottle of M-Grain for years.  Like over 10 years!  Still safe and still effective even after all that time ( a m a z i n g)!  M-Grain was formulated specifically to help relieve migraine and stress headaches.  If I don’t have M-Grain in reach I use Pan-Away.  Both work well for me but if I didn’t have either of those on hand I would use peppermint or lavender or stress away.  That is why these oils are just so amazing – one oil or blend can wear many hats.

Young Living April Promotions

Get Di-Gize and Life 5 FREE!Get Di-Gize and Life 5 FREE!

From April 1–30, 2011, when you place a single order of 180 PV* or more, you’ll receive a 30-count bottle of Life 5™ and a 15-ml bottle of Di-Gize™ essential oil blend absolutely free!That’s a retail value of $74.68!

Although we typically think of the gastrointestinal tract as the place where food is digested and then discarded, good digestive health is also very important in order to maintain a strong immune system and a lean body. In fact, the bowel in particular is known to be the source of core health and vitality. This is where the all-important transfer of nutrients to the bloodstream takes place. Therefore, if the bowel is not working properly, optimal health is impossible and the body is vulnerable to myriad conditions.

Learn more about the products featured in our April promotions! This month’s audio file:

“The Digestion-Health Connection” is a discussion of the benefits of Life 5, Di-Gize & Detoxzyme  with Doug Corrigan, VP of Product Marketing, Marc Schreuder, Director of Product Development and Jason Giles, Product Manger of Essential Nutrition.  Click here for the link

Life 5

Probiotics are a beneficial form of bacteria that help maintain the natural balance of microflora in the intestines. This “good bacteria” reduces the growth of harmful bacteria and promotes a healthy digestive system. Young Living’s Life 5 provides a daily boost of five of the most clinically proven and advanced probiotics, including three super strains that represent the most health-promoting strains ever prepared in a supplement.*

  • Probiotics, especially the super strain LA-14, have been shown to be a tremendous support to immune function.
  • New research from the Stanford University School of Medicine suggests that probiotics may enhance weight-loss programs.
  • Probiotics have been shown to assist the body in manufacturing important B vitamins and improving nutrient absorption, therefore naturally increasing energy.
  • Take two to five capsules daily as needed for intestinal health and comfort and to support immunity.

Get Panaway and Ortho Ease FREE!$5 Donation to Japan with Purchase of Longevity Softgels

During the past two weeks, Young Living has been following the terrible tragedy in Japan and assessing how we can make a big impact—both to the people in Japan who have suffered unimaginable losses and to our valued members in the United States and Canada who may be concerned about radiation leaks from the Fukushima nuclear reactors.

On March 14, Gary and Mary Young sent out a special eBlast outlining Young Living products that can be helpful in safeguarding you and your family. Those products include:

Item No. 4559 QuadShield
QuadShield combines four potent Young Living products that can have a synergistic, protective effect on your hormones and immune system. Includes the following items:

  • Longevity Softgels:  Take 1-2 capsules twice daily**

  • Super C:  Take 1-2 tablets daily
  • Thyromin:  Take 1 capsule 3 times per day

Other products highly recommend by Gary and Mary Young

Sales for these items have been increasing over the past week, which has inspired Young Living to donate a portion of these sales to help the Japanese people.
