November: What's Happening This Month?

November: What's Happening This Month?

Cooler Temps Are Here to Stay

As much as I hate to think about it, it seems that the temperatures - at least here in Indiana - have made their annual drop and the holiday season has officially started! Literally overnight, the pumpkins are gone and the Christmas decorations are on every shelf in the stores!


Cinnamon Bark, Nutmeg, and Orange are getting diffused daily here to keep the fall spirit alive just a little longer.
The Thieves blend is also an easy option, but have you tried this new member favorite combo in the diffuser?

4 drops Orange
3 drops Cedarwood
2 drops Cinnamon Bark

Try it out and tell us what you think!
 
Now, let's get right to it! Here's what you'll find below...
  • Team announcements & class dates
  • Hot products and oily tips
  • Business oil of the month
  • Monthly Young Living promotional items
  • Help 5
  • Essential Sharing Training

Announcements:

1) You're Invited! GROworkspace - an oily company who supports Young Living business builders - is celebrating their one year anniversary with a HUGE virtual birthday bash on November 17th and 18th. If you love your oils, come party with us and enjoy two straight days of oily education and awesome giveaways filled with YL products, oily resources, workshops, and more. Don't miss out on exclusive announcements and new contest details!

2) New members can now use their Premium Starter Kit as their first Essential Rewards order and receive 10% back in ER points. Be sure to share this information with your friends and family members who haven't yet grabbed their own starter kit! Not only will they get at least 10 points back on their very first order, but they will ALSO get the 100pv Essential Rewards exclusive oil! (This month that oil is Nutmeg Vitality!)


3) Upcoming online classes: Every Tuesday during the month of November, we'll have a LIVE Facebook class in our team group at 8pm EST. We encourage you to join us as we explore some product lines you may not be as familiar with! 


4) Upcoming in-person class (Central IN): Join us this Saturday from 11am-1pm for an open house! This is a casual event, so feel free to drop in when you can and leave when you need to! This month, we'll be highlighting the Thieves line of products and why they are such a safe and effective option for your family! Light refreshments will be provided.

5) Giveaways - Be sure to visit the Usage Group to watch for giveaways throughout the month of November. This one is live already for those who are processing their Essential Rewards orders early this month!  (If you're not yet in the usage group, let us know! It's our team's exclusive Facebook group for access to TONS of info on Young Living essential oils and other products!)

Hot Products:

The Vitality line is the perfect way to turn holiday dishes into something magical and beneficial for your health! Use Pinterest and search "Fall food recipes with essential oils." Try making this delicious dairy-free coffee creamer!


Monthly TIP: 


We recommend processing your Essential Rewards order ASAP this month, because Holiday Catalog items are now available to add to your ER order and they are likely to go quickly! Additionally, shipping tends to take a bit longer at the end of the month with Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, so you're sure to get your order faster if you process it early on.

Earn between 10%-25% back on your total ER PV points. Here's a handy chart to show how much you can save this month:


Ordering ASAP will ensure you get what you want, not only on Holiday Catalog items but also on any products you plan to give as gifts or need to get for yourself.

Young Living members can go a little CRAZY giving Young Living as gifts! And things do go out of stock with all the extra holiday ordering. So newbies, TRUST ME ON THIS. Check out the Holiday Catalog items HERE.

Add info on the giveaway you are doing for early ER orders or remind them to re-read the giveaway description in your announcements! 

 Business oil of the month: Gratitude


This oil will help you feel grateful for all you have in life. Use it every day this month to create a positive attitude of gratitude. 
When you are grateful for the things you have, your entire attitude changes and the way you approach your work or the people around you become more effective and loving. If you want to create MORE abundance in your life, use your Gratitude oil every single day.!

Diffuse 4-8 drops or apply a drop to your wrists and inhale in the morning. 
To make this even more effective, write down three things every day you are grateful for and why.  

 YL November Promos!

Do a quick Google Search and you will find all kinds of incredible uses for Sacred Frankincense from fascinating skincare solutions to emotional support to so much more. During this holiday season, reflect with your family in gratitude with Sacred Frankincense during prayer, meditation, or relaxation.

⚱️Myrrh 5 ml: Another sacred and valuable oil that has been used since the beginning of time for spiritual, medicinal, skincare and fragrant purposes. Both Frankincense and Myrrh are staples in our home. If they were good enough for Jesus, I think that’s proof enough that we need these in our home.

🎅Christmas Spirit 15ml: Cinnamon, orange and spruce, this is our favorite replacement for toxic fall candles and room sprays and we call it “mini-Thieves” around here. Check out the ingredient similarities!

🎄Christmas Ornament: This is such a beautiful glass ornament with aroma sticks to soak in your Christmas Spirit oil! Your whole house will smell like a bakery or Grandma’s house on Christmas morning with NOOOOO harmful toxic candles, sprays or wax melts!

✌️Higher Unity* 5ml: This is a brand new blend for this holiday season! Higher Unity essential oil blend has an uplifting, inviting aroma that helps inspire personal focus, spiritual balance, and unity with oneself and others. It is a luxurious and rich blend of Sacred Sandalwood, Sacred Frankincense, Lime, Northern Lights Black Spruce, Spearmint, Lemon, Jasmine and Rose oils. Heavenly!

🌲Bonus Essential Rewards Northern Lights Black Spruce 5 ml: The aroma of this oil is almost magical. I imagine walking through Narnia would smell like NLBS. It is a masculine oil and being from the conifer family, it is very supportive to the emotions and beneficial for mental clarity.

🥧Bonus Essential Rewards 5-ml Nutmeg Vitality: ’Tis the season of our favorite autumn desserts & drinks! Add Nutmeg Vitality to your kitchen adventures and wow loved ones. I think that someone knew that we’d need extra energy this season and that’s why we use it so much in recipes. It is a wonderful support to the adrenals and thyroid. Add a drop to your ningxia for a little kick & pep in your step!

Essential Sharing Training

If you are intentionally sharing Young Living with your friends to generate an income (whether that means covering the cost of your own orders or whether that means making enough money to replace your full-time job), or even if you're just interested in doing so...we are so thrilled to be in our second month of implementing our team training system called Essential Sharing! 


This training method takes everything off Facebook and into your own hands because you will have your own copy of the book Essential Sharing as well as text support, accountability partners, and so much more! We are currently in our first training round and will be doing an official launch on December 1st! At that point, you will be able opt in at any time to participate and learn how to effectively grow your business from two Royal Crown Diamonds who literally wrote the book on it! Your team leaders will also be there to partner with you throughout your journey.

While you're waiting, you can grab your copy of Essential Sharing right here. Unless you upgrade shipping, it's safe to anticipate it will be at least 7-10 days before your book arrives, so we recommend purchasing it early in the month if possible.

Keep an eye out for additional details in our team Facebook group on that as the date in just one month away!

October: What's Happening This Month?

October: What's Happening This Month?
Even though this week it feels like summer here in Indiana, we did have some chilly fall days last week and of course we know more are on their way! Since we no longer burn candles in our home, when the weather was cooler last week, I was quick to run and grab my favorite diffuser oils to enhance the season: cinnamon bark, nutmeg, orange, and clove!

This season change has already thrown some people in our home for a bit of a loop! If you are fortunate enough to not have been affected yet, don't waste any time to get your wellness routine down pat so you can stay healthy this fall!

Here is what we are  doing and what we recommend for you...

  • Thieves diluted along your spine, throat, and feet
  • RC, Raven, or Breath Again roll-on on your chest (ALL THE TIME)
  • Frankincense anywhere and everywhere
  • Hot honey tea with Manuka Honey, 1 drop Thieves, Lemon, & Peppermint Vitality
  • 2-4 oz of Ningxia Red EVERY SINGLE DAY
  • Inner Defense (one capsule a day or keep it close to use if you know you're immune system needs a boost)
  • Life 9 Probiotic & MightyPro Pre/Probiotic for the kids--a MUST for everyone (because gut health equals immune health)
  • Thieves Cough Drops (stock up now for winter)
Did we forget anything? If you have other tips, we'd love to have you share them in our team's usage group!

If you want to jump around, here's what you'll find below:

Each One, Reach One

This month, I want to encourage you to share your oils with ONE person. Aren't you glad your enroller shared with you?
If we all reach ONE person, we will help so many more people who are struggling to find wellness, purpose, and abundance. 

How to share your oils with others...

1. Use your oils in front of your friends or family.
2. Share a sample with a friend in need.
3. Tell your mama, sister, brother, kids, cousin, or neighbor that they NEED their own kit!
4. Listen to what people are telling you they need. Use your reference materials to find some suggestions about what they can use. 5. Show them the value of the kit. Give them your very own member number so they can order their own PSK.

When you help a friend get a PSK, you will get a $50 "Thank you" check* for spreading the love. This is a great way to help others and get some extra holiday money. 

The Young Living business opportunity has blessed many families, even families on this very team. They are receiving monthly paychecks that cover their YL products, groceries, car payments, and even mortgages. I didn't think I would ever do this business, but - it has not only been a blessing for me but it has also changed the lives of those I have shared my oils with and helped order their very own Premium Starter Kit. 

I want to make sure you have seen the NEW 2018 Income disclosure statement. Here is a snapshot. Yes, those are MONTHLY incomes. 


Find the full Income Disclosure statement HERE.  

If you need help finding your member number, I can help. 

*You must spend 50PV during the same calendar month that your new member orders the PSK in order to receive your $50. 

Help 5 Bonus

If you feel like helping 5 people this month, Young Living has a special gift for you! 
Qualifiers will get a 16-ounce bottle of Thieves® Fruit & Veggie Soak and five YL-branded reusable mesh produce bag.


This month's gifts are inspired by the Young Living 5x5 Pledge and their goal of becoming a zero waste company in five years. 
 
Earn five points to qualify. Members earn a point for any of the following: 
 
• Enrolling a new member with a Premium Starter Kit
• Helping an inactive member reactivate their account with a new Premium Starter Kit
• Signing up a personally enrolled member for Essential Rewards with an order of 50 PV or more
• Reenrolling a member in Essential Rewards with an order of 50 PV or more 

*New Essential Rewards enrollment includes members who you get back on the ER program after they have been inactive on ER for six months or more.

Intentional Sharing

If you are intentionally sharing Young Living with your friends to generate an income (whether that means covering the cost of your own orders or whether that means making enough money to replace your full-time job), or even if you're just interested in doing so...we are VERY excited to be implementing a brand new training system called Essential Sharing! 


We anticipate this being an incredible system with easy duplication, so this will impact our team's growth for years to come! We are taking everything off Facebook and into your own hands with your own copy of the book Essential Sharing as well as text support, accountability partners, and so much more! We are thrilled to be launching this on October 15th, which is just under two weeks away! 

If you'd like to participate with us, be sure to check out the explanation post in the Healthy Happy Homes Facebook group so you understand the details, and then we'll begin together on Monday, October 15th, working our way through the book at the same pace and becoming familiar with the system so we can pass it down to our team members as they get excited about generating their own income with Young Living!

We look forward to seeing you there! 

What are antioxidants?

What are antioxidants?
I remember first hearing about goji berries a few years back. They were being touted for their health benefits, and that's about all I recall. But I had no idea WHY they were called such a superfood, and I definitely did not know that it truly matters WHERE they are grown.

Over the years, I've done more research and learned so much about goji berries. And it's true that they have INCREDIBLE health benefits. From all I've been able to find, they are actually the highest source of antioxidants found in food today!

If you don't know what antioxidants are, sit tight for one second. Here's a super quick science lesson...
Free radicals are unstable atoms within the body that are missing an electron in their outer shell. Because of that, they are looking for something to grab onto to fill that electron need, and therefore they react quickly with other substances.

While the process of free radicals forming is normal, we also accelerate the process by our lifestyle - smoking, drinking alcohol, eating processed/fried foods, and being exposed to environmental toxins (which are largely unavoidable in today's society).

Additionally, as the body ages, it loses its ability to fight the effects of free radicals. Once formed, free radicals can start a chain of damaging chemical reactions. The result is more free radicals, more oxidative stress, and more damage to cells, which leads to degenerative processes, as well as "normal" aging.

Various studies and theories have connected oxidative stress due to free radicals to:

*central nervous system diseases, such as Alzheimer's and other dementias

*cardiovascular disease due to clogged arteries

*autoimmune and inflammatory disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and cancer

*cataracts and age-related vision decline

*age-related changes in appearance, such as loss of skin elasticity, wrinkles, graying hair, hair loss, and changes in hair texture

*diabetes

*genetic degenerative diseases, such as Huntington's disease or Parkinson's

So free radicals can obviously do some pretty intense damage to the body.

BUT....
Here is where antioxidants enter the scene!! They are here to save the day, and help your body naturally fight the process of damage caused by free radicals.

Antioxidants are molecules which can safely interact with free radicals and terminate the chain reaction before vital molecules are damaged.

They are basically superheroes within your body!

While there ARE artificial supplements created to give antioxidant value to the body, it is widely known that food is the absolute best source, and THAT is exactly why we're talking about goji berries!

*Science lesson complete*

We choose to purchase our goji berries and products made from those berries from Young Living, because their goji berries have been shown to have 3x the antioxidant value of all other goji berries.

Why are they so much higher on the antioxidant scale?

Well, like realty...it's all about...LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION.

Young Living's goji berries (sometimes called wolfberries)  come from a province in China called the Ningxia province. It sits right at the bottom of the Yellow River, which is known for its extremely high mineral content because it collects all those minerals as it runs down the mountains.

There are a handful of food and drink products available from Young Living that are made with these Ningxia wolfberries, and you can easily get yours by adding them to your next Essential Rewards order!

Organic Dried Wolfberries
Ningxia Berry Syrup
Wolfberry Crisp Bars
Ningxia Red
Ningxia Nitro
Ningxia Zyng

Search for these in your Virtual Office and try them all!

Curious about this, but not yet a Young Living member? You can actually get started with a Ningxia Premium Starter Kit!

It comes with a 60-day supply of Ningxia Red (a delicious puree drink made primarily with Ningxia wolfberries) and a box of 14 Ningxia Nitros! (I like to call the Nitro our "natural 5-hour energy drink" because it provides sustained, even energy levels for close to 5 hours...and without the caffeine jolt!)

The starter kit also comes with a bottle of Stress Away essential oil, a member favorite (that I think smells like a tropical vacation) that is sure to be a favorite in your home.

You can grab yours RIGHT HERE if you're ready to get started! 

Plus, as soon as you grab your kit, you'll ALSO have access to all our online team resources, education, classes AND a 24% discount on all other products you ever purchase from Young Living! It's like a win-win-win-win-win-etc.!

If you'd like to do more research on what makes the Young Living Ningxia berries unique, you can hop on over to NingxiaRed.com and read about the history and the products. We can't wait to hear your Ningxia success story!

Standards Far Beyond the Standard

Standards Far Beyond the Standard
This week we are headed to the 2018 Young Living International Grand Convention. While we are there, we will be visiting our Mona, Utah farm.

Melissa  | Mona, UT
I've been to this particular farm three times already, and it is truly the most peaceful place I have ever been.

One of the things that REALLY sets Young Living apart is our farms. We own about a dozen farms right now and we partner very closely with several more to bring the world the absolutely purest, highest quality of essential oils.

Young Living farm | Mona, UT

Young Livings offers full transparency by allowing anyone - Young Living member or not - to visit any of our farms.

This is INCREDIBLE and completely unheard of for a company of its size!

Lavender  | Mona, UT

Millions of people around the world have discovered the benefits of pure essential oils, derived naturally from plants, and Young Living is committed to establishing and maintaining the ultimate, industry-leading standard in essential oil products. In this company, the non-negotiable benchmarks for delivering a product that customers can feel great about are multifaceted and exacting. 

Young Living is proud to offer an extensive line of essential oils and essential oil-infused, plant-based products that represent the best of nature—through the standards of their Seed to Seal program.

Clary Sage | Mona, UT

Young Living embraces a rigorous quality control standard to help ensure our products meet strict specifications. Seed to Seal is their set of standards that helps ensure that with every pure essential oil and Young Living product your family uses, you’re enjoying the benefits of our global resources, industry leadership, and over two decades of innovation. 

The result is a pristine final product that you know has been created with conscientious Sourcing, Science, and Standards—the three pillars of Seed to Seal.

As the leader of the essential oils movement, Young Living is paving the way for every other essential oil company to improve processes that protect our planet and ensure the highest quality standards.

I have personally witnessed the process and have even been involved in it myself! 

Planting at the Mona, UT farm | June 2017

It's truly an incredible honor to be allowed to help plant the starts that will eventually grow, be distilled, and bottle as our precious essential oils! If you'd like to read more about the extensive Seed to Seal process, the three pillars (Sourcing, Science, and Standards), our testing processes, and more, visit THIS LINK.
