November Unboxing

 

I filmed a quick video unboxing everything I ordered for FREE with my Essential Rewards points from Young Living Essential Oils.

By participating in Young Living’s monthly subscription box, I earn rewards points that I can use for free products.  I tend to hoard my Essential Rewards points but I decided it was finally time to cash some of those babies in!

Here’s what I ordered:

The Oils of Ancient Scripture Collection. I’ll be sharing more about this set soon.

Some everyday oils as a gift for a friend to introduce her to therapeutic grade oils – lavender, orange, eucalyptus, and peppermint.

And then some Lime for us!


I’m thrilled I was able to get all of this for free!

July Unboxing

 

So excited to dive into my monthly wellness box from Young Living!  I decided to order some of the new products that were released at Convention.

I ordered the Desert Mist Diffuser, which is absolutely beautiful.  I love that it has so many different settings and changes colors.

It also came with two free oils – 5ml of Tangerine and Peppermint.

And then I just HAD to try some of the new Savvy Minerals makeup.

All of the new makeup products were in seriously high demand, but I managed to get one of the eyeshadows (Unscripted).

I also ordered Wanderlust, but alas, it sold out before my order processed. Next time for sure!

M-Grain

M-Grain

Every month I look forward to choosing what comes in my Essential Rewards order.  Often it’s restocking my go-to oils (like Panaway and Peppermint), but I love trying out new oils.  This month I decided that I’d give M-Grain a try.

I have lived with migraines since I turned eighteen.  And I’ve been prescribed a number of medications, none of which really worked.  In fact, as is often the case with medications these days, the side effects made me feel worse than if I’d just left well enough alone.  Over the years, I’ve managed to mostly get my migraines under control through changes in diet and lifestyle.  But, once a month and when the barometric pressure drops, I’m almost guaranteed a migraine.

Over the months of using oils, I found that both peppermint and Panaway have been helpful due to their anti-inflammatory properties.  And peppermint is always my go to when my stomach gets upset.  When I read that M-Grain was really good with relieving tension when massaged into the back of the neck and temples, I decided it was worth a try too.

M-Grain

M-Grain is a blend of Basil, Marjoram, Lavender, Peppermint, Roman Chamomile, and Helichrysum.

I have used it both topically, by massaging onto the back of my neck and along my temples to relieve tension, and aromatically by dropping it into my palms and cupping over my nose and mouth to inhale.  By using these oils in addition with my usual methods of ice packs and a dark room, their cooling and soothing properties help to give me some peace.
