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?

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, 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

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…

10 Natural Ways to Combat Stress and Anxiety

10 Natural Ways to Combat Stress and Anxiety

Anxiety is something I have been struggling with on and off for most of my life. Over the past 5 or 6 years since my digestive issues have worsened, my anxiety worsened right along with it. After reading many articles, listening to many doctors, and learning how to listen to my body, I realized that my gut problems and my anxiety had weaved themselves into and endless cycle – One causing the other. With the help of several natural practitioners, virtual support from stories found online, and my family and friends’ support, I am starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Keep reading to learn what has helped me maintain some control over my anxiety. (I am not a medical professional. These are what I have found works for me. They may or may not work for you – Everyone is different.)

1. Apps

A good percentage of us have smartphones. Take a snoop around the app store on your mobile device and you will find a plethora of relaxation apps. A few of my favorites are:

Relax Lite: Simply guided breathing with soothing music in the background. When I get panicky I forget to breathe. This guide gives me something to focus on, other than my nerves.

CalmThis app is very popular. It has a lot of great guided meditations for balancing emotions and relaxation. There is also a work book bassed on the Calm app, with a similar concept.

AudibleSometimes, when my mind is racing at night, I put on a story that comes free with an Amazon Prime subscription.

Relax Melodies: If you enjoy noises, tones, or sounds for relaxation, this app would be great for you.

2. Deep Breathing

Deep breathing,  4 counts in and  4 counts out. Focusing on the counting and feeling the breath deep in the bottom of my lungs helps to calm me.

3. Essential Oils

I LOVE essential oils. I use them for everything. Some great single oils to use for anxiety are Lavender, Chamomile, Orange, and Ylang Ylang.

There are also a few blends that are amazing: Relax, Peace and Calming I and/or II, and Stress Away. Each of these is unique, with beautiful, calming scents. All of these oils work well applied to the skin – for stress, I like to rub them over my chest – and diffused in an essential oil diffuser (the one I’m currently using – great for smaller to medium sized spaces, not so great for larger, open spaces).

4. Yoga and Meditation

When I include a few minutes of yoga and meditation in my day I feel a whole lot better overall, both physically and mentally.

A few apps I like to use are Daily Yoga, Asana Rebel, Butterfly Yoga, and Yoga Academy.

5. Get Outside/Grounding

Getting out into nature, into the fresh air has so many benefits both emotionally and physically. Grounding or Earthing – getting skin to earth contact – in ways I don’t understand supports our overall health in so many ways: reducing stress, reducing pain and inflammation, speeding up healing, and supporting adrenal health. (wellnessmama.com has a really great article about grounding.)

“Playing” in the dirt can provide lots of beneficial probiotics. Having a healthy microbiome is the basis for a healthy body and mind.

So get out there in the sun and dirt! Breath in the fresh air, soak up the vitamin D and play in the probiotics.

6. Don’t be afraid to ask for help

Reach out to a friend or family member you can trust. Explain what you are feeling. Don’t be afraid to tell them exactly how to help you when you do have a panic attack.

Seeing a Therapisteapist can do a world of good. I really enjoyed the time I spent with mine. She provided me with many great tools to understand what was going on with my brain and how to manage it and correct it. Panic attacks don’t just come out of the blue. There is a cause. Maybe we can’t identify the reason right off the bat – and that’s okay – but with time a professional can help you understand the underlying causes of your anxiety and find a way to retrain your brain to overcome what triggers your anxiety.

7. Staying Busy

Staying occupied helps me to keep my mind off of whatever might be stressing me.

For example, I get quite anxious when we have company (I’ve made a lot of improvement on that recently) so staying busy in the kitchen or cleaning around the house in preparation for guests really helps keep my freak out to a minimum.

8. Reducing Toxicity

Detoxing can do a world of good for the body. You can start by making sure the products you use on yourself and your home are chemical free. (Sign up for my email newsletter or follow me on Bloglovin’ to get even more tips on living chemical free.)

With your Doctor’s approval remove synthetic medications. Search for natural options. A Naturopath, Functional Medicine Practitioner or Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner may be able to help with that search.

9. Check hormone and vitamin levels

I really recommend finding a Functional Medicine Practitioner in your area. I absolutely love mine. She is the best Doctor I’ve had so far (and I’ve seen a LOT of Doctors). She is dedicated, open-minded and thorough. Functional Docs have access to both sides of medicine – pharmaceutical and natural. They can also request testing from both sides of medicine. Functional Docs have access to more unique, detailed and possibly weird tests. Ask to get your hormone and vitamin levels checked. My results have been very revealing and helpful for future treatment and healing.

10. Supplements

There are many supplements that can help with stress reduction and mood balancing. (Always speak to your doctor before introducing a new treatment.)

Taking a high quality probiotic to keep your gut flora balanced will, in turn, help the rest of your body. Anxiety can be a side effect of vitamin b deficiency. I recommend finding methylated b’s in case there is an MTHFR gene mutation.

A few supplements such as Holy Basil, Gaba, and L-Theanine are very helpful with mood balancing.

So there you have it. Those are my tips and tricks for keeping a lid on my anxiety and panic attacks. I hope you find something here that could help you but remember, everyone is different. (You should always speak with your doctor before making any changes with your health.)

Do you have any tips that I didn’t include? If so, please share them in the comments!

Gift Guide For Someone With Digestive Disorders

Gift Guide For Someone With Digestive Disorders

With Christmas coming up rather quickly, I thought I’d put together a gift guide for something a bit unique, something I know a bit about; digestive disorders. More and more you hear about people with Celiac, Chrones, IBS, IBD, Leaky Gut, I could keep going. I bet you know somebody like that. If you are stumped on what gift to give them this Christmass, here are a few suggestions. These products are favorites of many in the gut healing community.

Cozy Clothes

Solmate Socks

I have a couple pairs of Solmate Socks. I absolutely love them. They come in all sorts of colors and I love how unique they are. An added bonus: they are very cozy and warm. (And made from recycled cotton, and made in the US)

Joggers

I love wearing pants like these. I have a few fleece pairs and a few  that are a cotton blend. I love both. Most of the time I prefer cotton clothes but when you need something extra snuggly and soft to cuddle up in, baggy fleece is amazing. Walmart is a great place to get cheap, cozy PJ pants of all styles.

Sweatshirt of Sweater 

Everyone loves a warm sweatshirt or sweater! Champion is one of my favorite brands for “active” wear. (Even though I’m not a sporty person.)

Slippers

Sperry Top-Sider is a brand my family has loved for ages. I can only imagine how amazing these slippers could be! Soft and furry is the way to go in the slipper department when winter hits.

 

Cuddly Bedding

Throw

As I am writing this post, it is about 3o℉ outside, and I am bundled up with this Sonoma blanket by the fireplace. Several Christmases ago we received one for each of the three of us from cousins, and we have been loving them since. (My cat is currently snoozing in one of the others.)

Body Pillow

Regardless of one’s state of health, a lot of people really love body pillows. Pregnancy pillows are so big, you can just curl up inside one massive pillow and be supported by squishy cuddliness on all sides. It sounds pretty great to me!

Essential Oils

One of the most important parts of my healing is using essential oils. They have helped me with my digestion, anxiety, cleaning and even managing my cat’s fleas!

It is important to note that there are many different levels of quality with not real regulations. I wouldn’t put a lot of trust in the cheap oils you can pick up in your local health store. I have gotten the most benefit from Young Living’s Essential oils. For a cheaper option, I enjoy a few oils from Plant Therapy as well.

Digize

I don’t know what I would do without Digize blend from Young Living. It has all of the most beneficial oils in it for gut health: peppermint, ginger, fennel, lemongrass, etc. You can read my full review about it here.

Thieves

Thieves is another favorite. I love diffusing it. It is a blend of cinnamon, clove, lemon and eucalyptus and has a very Christmasy scent. These ingredients are also wonderful for cleaning. They are antibacterial and antifungal. It knocks out a cold at the earliest sign and it can also be rubbed on the tummy (with a carrier oil to dilute) to help with something along the lines of Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). Young Living has created many personal care and housekeeping products with this Thieves blend as a base. Thieves Household Cleaner does wonders for mold problems.

Citrus Fresh

Added to a glass of water, diffused or applied topically this essential oil blend is beautiful. It tastes wonderful, smells wonderful, and also aids in detox. Lemon, orange, mandarine, grapefruit, and spearmint are blended to create this sweet oil.

Relax Synergy 10 ml

Relax

Diffused or applied topically, I find great relief from this blend. It has a really strong, sweet lavender scent. It pairs well, diffused with Citrus Fresh.

Books

Eat Dirt

Dr Axe is a great expert in gut health. His website, www.draxe.com is overflowing with articles, information, recipes, DIYs and more that are related to gut healing. His recent book is sort of a sum of what he teaches.

Gut and Psychology Syndrom (GAPS)

The “yellow book” is kind of a bible of gut healing for a lot of people. There is so much information in this book! When I was reading it, I felt like every paragraph I was thinking “wow!”, ‘no way” or “that explains it!”. I highly recommend this book!

Journal

Writing is an important part of healing for a lot of people. A beautiful journal is a great place to keep track of how your feeling, positive accomplishments, goals or even track food and symptoms.

 

Tea

Peppermint Tea

Tea Pig’s Peppermint Tea is sweet, minty, and soothing. It’s enjoyable in a hot mug or in a cooler glass of water.

 

Chamomile

Before bed, a warm cup of chamomile can help calm the mind and body. A good night’s sleep is so important for healing.

Fun Mug

A fun mug always makes things 10X better. Who wouldn’t love a color changing Maurader Map mug?!

Kitchen Tools

Food Processor

Having a food processor on hand is always a good thing. I love using it to chop up foods like cauliflower to make cauliflower rice.

Slow Cooker

Having the ability to throw some ingredients in a pot and not have to think about it for a while takes a lot of stress way. Food that is cooked well is a lot easier to digest as well. This particular slow cooker that is linked is made out of clay, without any glaze so you don’t have to worry about any metals, plastics, dyes or chemicals leaching into the food. It also has a setting for yogurt making. The beneficial bacteria from plain, organic, homemade yogurt is very important to repairing the gut and restoring health to the rest of the body.

 

For Curiosity

DNA Testing

There are many genetic factors that can play into digestive issues. Doing 23andMe, I learned about many genetic abnormalities that could be contributing to my health battles. I really recommend doing it. It’s actually really cool learning about the fine details of what makes you, you. You can read a bit more about my experience here.

Young Living Thieves AromaBright Toothpaste

Young Living Thieves AromaBright Toothpaste

All of Young Living‘s toothpaste are quite similar. At this time they have three options (and a forth for kids). Over the past few months, I have reviewed the other two here and here.

After trying all three I find it quite difficult pick one that stands out from the other two. They are all very similar. They feel effective, they taste minty fresh and they all have clean, low harm ingredients.

The AromaBright has a bit of a sweeter taste compared to the other two. I didn’t care for it at first but as I kept using the toothpaste I adjusted and couldn’t notice the sweetener anymore.

I have noticed that this toothpaste is a favorite for a lot of people. I have a hard time picking which one I will repurchase first. But, for me, just by a hair, the winner is the Dentarome Plus toothpaste. I prefer the taste of that one and I felt like it helped my teeth stay just a little bit whiter than the other two YL pastes.

If you haven’t yet signed up for Young Living (You should! Their products are very high quality and effective.) I would love it if your would use my member referral code 2949525, upon creating an account. If you need any help or have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Young Living Thieves Dentarome Ultra Toothpaste | Review

Young Living Thieves Dentarome Ultra Toothpaste | Review

A few weeks ago I reviewed Young Living’s Thieves Dentarome Plus Toothpaste and liked it so much. As I wrote in that review, I was really interested in trying Young Living’s other toothpaste. When I finished the Dentarome Plus, I decided to order the Dentarome Ultra. Unfortunately, I wasn’t as blown away by the Ultra as I was by the Plus.

I don’t love the flavor as much, but the texture is a bit better than the Plus. I noticed the Ultra didn’t have the same whitening power as the Plus. My teeth started to yellow again when I switched to this one.

Another drawback for me it the Xylitol. Ever since I was diagnosed with fructose malabsorption I have been extremely careful about they types of sugars I ingest (no, I’m not actually eating the toothpaste, but I am still cautious). No sugar alcohols for me!

To my surprise, after running the ingredient list for the Dentarome Ultra toothpaste through EWG’s Skin Deep database, the overall score is a 4. I am a bit snobby about the EWG ratings of the products I use. I don’t really like to use anything over a 2 or 3. However, a couple of the riskier ingredients are essential oils that some people can be a bit more sensitive to.

All in all, I didn’t hate this toothpaste, but because I liked the Dentarome Plus much better I would purchase that one over the Dentarome Ultra.

If you are interested in trying any Young Living products I would love it if you used my referral code 2949525 when you create your online account! If you have any questions please feel free to contact me in whatever way is easiest for you (Social media, email, comments, etc.)

The Honest Company Organic Sanitary Pad | Review

The Honest Company Organic Sanitary Pad | Review

Pads and tampons are a big part of many of our lives. We use them quite regularly. They go on/in/around one of the most delicate, sensitive parts of our bodies. Shouldn’t we be keeping that area as healthy and chemical free as possible?

Many of the conventional brands that are easy to pick up at you local drugstore use cheap cotton that has been grown with pesticides/herbicides. When cotton is sprayed with those chemicals, the spray goes directly onto the fluff that is used to make our personal care items, bedding, towels, and clothing. That cotton is then bleached, dyed, and treated with even more harmful chemicals. When we put that toxic material on our most sensitive skin we are allowing all of those dangerous chemicals to be absorbed by our bodies. Knowing my own personal issues (MTHFR, etc.) with detoxing toxins like pesticides, synthetic dyes, and chemicals I can no longer allow myself to use products containing those hidden ingredients.

A while back I shared a video on this topic to my Facebook page. The reporter explains this whole issue with the chemicals in feminine care products really well. You can find it here. Don’t forget to like me on Facebook while you are there!

The ingredients that are used in pads and tampons are not regulated and it is not required for the companies to disclose what they have used. Luckily there are more and more companies who are beginning to care about this issue. These Eco and health conscious brands are considerate enough to list the ingredients on their products packaging and website.

The Honest Co. Pads are made out of organic cotton, and plant-based “plastic” materials. They are made without plastics, fragrances, dyes, bleach, etc.

Under my phone, in the yellow wrapper is Honest’s Liner. This comes folded in thirds and sealed in the yellow packaging. -Side note… The Honest Company has such cute packaging!- This regular liner is great for lighter days, backup for a tampon (which The Honest Company also sells) or every day wear if you like. I have tried a few other organic panty liners mostly by Natracare, and I found that The Honest Co. holds up the best. The adhesive on the bottom is stronger and the surface doesn’t fall apart and get crumbly.

The same can be said for the thong liners. They don’t come folded and sealed like the other three pads. They have a peel off paper backing and are the thinnest of the four. As you can see, it is shaped like a normal panty liner but has dotted lines so it can be folded to fit around a thong. I am not a thong wearer so I haven’t tried that myself but unfolded they work fine in regular underwear. These are so thin and flexible, and they are great for everyday wear, tampon backup or the very tail end of a period.

The Regular and Super pads are both ultra-thin, yet super absorbent. I would compare them to Always Radiant pads or U by Kotex Clean Wear pads, just without all the synthetics and chemicals! I like to use the regular pads during the day and the super at night.

All four of these pads are wonderful! I have not been disappointed by an Honest Co. product yet. I would highly recommend these. They are comfortable, healthy, a bit more Eco-friendly and you don’t miss out on any of the quality and durability from your favorites like Always, Kotex, Stayfree or Playtex.
