Young Living Essential Rewards, January ’18 | Unboxing

Young Living Essential Rewards, January ’18 | Unboxing

You’ve probably seen Young Living promoted by a few of your Facebook friends. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the brand, Young Living is a very successful essential oil company whose products are made from organic plants and processed on high-quality machines in the safest ways possible to maximize each bottle’s medicinal value. (You can learn more about their manufacturing process here.)
Each month I receive an Essential Rewards box of products that I have personally selected. I also earn points from each month’s order that allows me to get free products in the future.
This month I ordered Di-Gize and Peace & Calming II.
Di-Gize is my savior. I don’t know how I’d manage without it. I haven’t been without a bottle since I discovered it about 4 years ago. It’s the best tummy soother ever. (You can read my full review of it here.)

Di-Gize Ingredients

“Artemisia dracunculus† (Tarragon) oil, Zingiber officinale† (Ginger) root oil, Mentha piperita† (Peppermint) oil, Juniperus osteosperma† (Juniper) oil, Foeniculum vulgare† (Fennel) oil, Cymbopogon flexuosus† (Lemongrass) oil, Pimpinella anisum† (Anise) seed oil, Pogostemon cablin† (Patchouli) oil” – YL’s Website

Peace and calming II is a beautiful, unique relaxing blend. It’s great to diffuse or apply topically to calm your senses.

Peace & Calming II Ingredients

“Citrus reticulata† (Tangerine) peel oil, Citrus aurantium dulcis† (Orange) peel oil, Cananga odorata† (Ylang ylang) flower oil, Pogostemon cablin† (Patchouli) oil, Picea mariana† (Northern Lights black spruce) leaf oil, Chamomilla recutita† (Matricaria) flower oil, Vetiveria zizanoides† (Vetiver) root oil, Cistus ladaniferus† (Cistus) oil, Citrus aurantium bergamia† (Bergamot) peel oil, Cinnamomum cassia† (Cassia) leaf oil, Artemisia pallens† (Davana) flower oil” – YL’s Website

This month’s order was small and just reached the minimum spending requirement, but both products have been used many times since receiving.
What did you order in your Essential Rewards box this month?

You can never go wrong with the high quality, luxe products from Vapour. The Mesmerize Eye Color does not fall short. Just like the rest of the brand, these sticks, creamy eyeshadows are made from organic and mineral ingredients and are just beautiful to use as well as have on display…

Lemongrass Spa’s “Pomegranate Body Polish” | Review

Winter is upon us. Often along with the beautiful, snowy scenes, and cozy clothes, we get dry skin. Exfoliating and moisturizing are two things that I forget to do very easily. But thank goodness there are products out there that can do both at the same time. I’ve just tried Lemongrass Spa’s Pomegranate Body Polish and was blown away by how well it can multi-task…

Four Months at IIN

Since graduating high school in 2014 I haven’t done much to further my education. Instead, I took the time to focus on my health and to work on healing. Its been almost four years since I finished school, so it feels like a good time to dip my toes back into the school scene. I decided to enroll in IIN or the Institute for Integrative Nutrition…

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques “Deep Sea Masque” | Review

Finding affordable, organic skin care and makeup products is a rare thing. Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques is a rare gem in regards to price and quality. Clay face masks are one of my favorites because you can really see where the oil and gunk are being pulled out. The Deep Sea Masque from Lauren Brooke comes as a powder to be mixed with any liquids of your choosing and is created with so many nourishing ingredients, it’s impossible to not be intrigued by it…

Vapour “Mesmerize Eye Color” | Review

You can never go wrong with the high quality, luxe products from Vapour. The Mesmerize Eye Color does not fall short. Just like the rest of the brand’s products, these creamy eyeshadow sticks are made from natural, organic, and mineral ingredients and are beautiful to use as well as to have on display.

Vapour sells their shadows in two different ranges… Classic and Radiant. The Classic colors are matte, while the Radiant shadows are shimmery. For my first try of these shadows, I decided to go for the most basic color they offer, though there are many beautiful colors available. I selected the matte shade Flash. On Vapour’s website, Flash is accurately described as a mushroom taupe color.

This is a really attractive and comfortable eyeshadow and I’d love to try it in other colors. Have you tried any? Which ones are your favorite? Share in the comments.

Lemongrass Spa’s “Pomegranate Body Polish” | Review

Winter is upon us. Often along with the beautiful, snowy scenes, and cozy clothes, we get dry skin. Exfoliating and moisturizing are two things that I forget to do very easily. But thank goodness there are products out there that can do both at the same time. I’ve just tried Lemongrass Spa’s Pomegranate Body Polish and was blown away by how well it can multi-task.

For starters, it smells incredible. It’s very fruity and can bring a bit of the tropics to your shower routine on a brisk day. Many sugar and salt scrubs are quite harsh and too abrasive for my skin and I can find them to be kind of painful. That is not the case with this polish. It scrubs and exfoliates with just the right coarseness. I think one reason why its so comfortable to use is because it is packed with so many nourishing oils like Sweet Almond Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, and Coconut oil. It is able to moisturize at the same time that the sugar crystals are exfoliating. I used this first thing in the shower and a good amount of the oils stayed on me for the duration of my shower. When I was out our the shower and dried off, I could have easily gotten by without putting on my moisturizer. I could still smell the pomegranate for a long time on my skin over my Dragon Time moisturizer from Young Living.

This is a scrub I would purchase again and try in all the different scents they have available. In the comments below tell me what your favorite Lemongrass Spa products are. What do I need to try next?

Four Months at IIN

Four Months at IIN

Since graduating high school in 2014 I haven’t done much to further my education. Instead, I took the time to focus on my health and to work on healing. Its been almost four years since I finished school, so it feels like a good time to dip my toes back into the school scene. I decided to enroll in IIN or the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

What is IIN?
IIN is an online school that provides its students with a certification in health coaching. The content is very holistic and offers a lot of great information on many health-related topics. They teach about over 100 different diets as well as digestion, exercise, lifestyle, emotions, relationships, and also include guidance in the vocational, business side of coaching.

They have been around for over 20 years and have produced many great professionals such as the creator of Purely Elizabeth granola and even my own Functional Medicine Dr.

What is the commitment level?
It can be taken as a part-time course alongside other college classes and/or work. I find it to be pretty common sense information while being interesting and new at the same time. On average it is about a 5 to 8 hour a week workload.

Why have I enrolled?
Just after I graduated, when I was at my sickest, and just getting into learning how to care for my body myself holistically, a friend of mine was enrolled here at IIN and told me all about it. I was very interested and keep them in the back of my mind (and email inbox) for the future. When I saw that they were having a little deal on tuition this fall I thought it would be the perfect time to enroll. I’d been feeling slightly fidgety with where my life was at… or rather wasn’t at, and was ready for something new, but not overwhelming. I am taking this as an opportunity to learn more about health and wellness to continue my healing journey as well as help my family and friends on theirs.

Over the years I have known many people, friends, family, and acquaintances, who have dealt with similar digestive issues as I have. I find it fascinating listening to their story and what has worked for them. I also enjoy offering advice when I can. I’d love the opportunity to help more people in similar situations.

I also hope to grow my confidence to share healthy living tips here and write about topics a bit more serious than makeup. Don’t get me wrong! I do love makeup very much and will not be cutting it out of my posts, but I’d love to offer help to others virtually via my blog.

Have you taken any courses like what IIN offers? How did it go? To get in the spirit of health coaching comment one area of your life that you would like to improve.
