Having healthy, vibrant and beautiful skin means having a healthy liver. The liver is one of the most important detoxifying organs in the body. It is the most complicated organ with the greatest number of functions (known to have 5,000 chemical functions a day) transforming digested food into usable materials and disposing of waste, thus affecting every cell of our body.

Over a liter of blood passes through the liver every minute. When the liver is overloaded, the skin excretes the toxins and poisons present in the body. Some of the symptoms of a toxic or stressed liver include the following: skin irritations, blemishes, acne, psoriasis, eczema, allergies, itching skins or hives, heart burn, bloating, general fatigue, nausea and abdominal swelling, yellow discoloration of the skin or eyes, loss of appetite, dark colored urine and loss of energy.

Avoid Toxins in Daily Living
The average woman applies 300 chemicals to her body every single day, 80 of them before breakfast. The top 10 most dangerous chemicals in our home are air fresheners like plugins or candles. Second on the list is chemical cleaning supplies for your counters, floors and toilets, as well as drain and oven cleaners and furniture polish, dishwasher and dish detergent, beauty supplies and personal care products like hairspray, gel shampoo, deodorant. One of the top pollutants in the family home is laundry detergent and fabric softener. You wash your clothes, it sits on your skin, outgasses in your closet all night long. That information was from the US Environmental Protection Agency’s top 10 Killer Household Chemicals Study.

All of these toxic chemicals contribute to an overloaded liver. This is why it is important to be aware of the toxins that are in the products we are using on a daily basis. You can reduce a lot of them by replacing with healthier options. Young Living has lots of options for toxin free products. Examples are the Thieves Product Line, Savvy Minerals Makeup line are just two examples.

Eat for a Healthy Liver
Everything you eat must pass through your liver, so pay attention to your nutrition to keep a healthy liver and a healthy you with youthful, radiant skin.

Eat a well-balanced diet.

Avoid deep fried foods, smoke, cured and salted foods.

Use alternative seasonings in your cooking such as lemon juice, onion, garlic, mustard, cloves, sage, oregano or thyme.

Increase your fiber (fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains).

Eat fruit instead of rich desserts and drinks.

Drink Plenty of Pure Water

Drink fresh lemon in pure warm water upon arising in the morning.

Use supplements and or essential oils to support your healthy liver: Examples: Ledum, Helichrysum, Carrot Seed, Geranium, Cardamon, Sage, Rosemary CT cineol, German Chamomile and Roman Chamomile.

Young Living offers two oil blends to support a healthy liver: JuvaFlex and Juva Cleanse and a supplement called JuvaTone.

D. Gary Young Shares His Discoveries About Growing and Harvesting Einkorn



We are experiencing a lot of excitement here at the Young Living Skyrider Ranch in Tabiona, Utah!


After the ranch was purchased, I looked out over the fields and the majestic mountains that span from the Duchesne River at 6,500 feet to the mountain tops on the ranch at 10.000 feet, and I started imagining all the potential this 4,500 acres of God’s paradise could bring to our Young Living family, from corporate activities to member retreats. Then I started thinking about einkorn and wondering how well it would grow at this altitude of 6.700 feet.


So I decided to prepare the ground, and in May the seed that came from our farm in France was seeded into 100 acres here for trial planting and growing. Normally. Einkorn does the best with late fall planting; however, because of the late fall rains, we were unable to get a crop in the ground before it was too late. I felt we were better off experimenting with spring planting to see what it would do rather than wait another year to find out.


I was constantly watching the fields with great anticipation. At this altitude it was a “roll of the dice” whether it would germinate in time to grow to full maturity before the fall frost would come. Einkorn is a unique grain, and since it is considered a dry land crop, many people get fooled by its behavior. When planted, it will germinate and come through the ground in 7 days and grow like crazy until it reaches a height of 4 to 6 inches, and then it stops growing.


After einkorn pokes its head through the soil, it doesn’t grow for 3 to 4 weeks and appears to just be enjoying the sunshine, the beautiful air, and the freedom of being above the ground. However, a phenomenon is taking place during this time of false dormancy.

The einkorn never really stops growing but is taking in the carbon dioxide and electromagnetic energy from the sun and sending it to the roots to give the nutrient support for them to grow fast and deep in preparation for the third phase of its life cycle. At this point the growth is all beneath the surface as the roots push deeper into Mother Earth to reach the best minerals and nutrients as well as water before it returns to its journey skyward.


Once the einkorn has reached optimal root depth, it focuses on growing tall. One morning we will walk out into the field and will be amazed to see that the einkorn has grown 2 inches overnight. Every day the shaft grows, preparing the foundation to feed the baby kernels that soon start to form.


As the einkorn here grew taller and taller, I knew I had made a good decision. By July the heads were about 3 feet tall, and by mid-August they had grown to my shoulders.


When we hear in our minds the words “for amber waves of grain” in the song America the Beautiful, we immediately see miles of wheat gently waving back and forth in the wind. But here at the ranch, the waves are in the beautiful fields of einkorn.


I felt a little emotional knowing that hundreds of tons of grain from these fields will feed people around the world, who now will have a choice to eat a safe, nutritious. non-hybridized grain.


I watch for three stages of growth and maturity in my einkorn to determine the best time for harvest:


The first stage is called the milk stage, when the kernels start to form, you squeeze them, and what comes out looks like white milk.


The second stage is the soft dough stage, which is when the kernels are completely formed, and the heads are turning yellowish in color. The stalk is still green. but when you peel back the husk, there is a living substance called the kernel. It will appear completely formed; however, half of it will still be slightly green, and the rest, a yellowish tan color. When you pinch the kernel, it will be firm, but the interior will come out like soft dough.


When the kernels are fully developed, they will fall off with rain, the movement of the wind, or the harvesting machine. In ancient times when farmers harvested with a scythe, the knife blade slicing through the stalks would knock off the kernels, so the people knew they had to cut before final maturity. They then began the harvest but cut in the soft dough stage and tied the stalks into bundles to let them stand on end in a teepee shape so that the wind would not knock them over. This also allowed the rain or dew to fall and run off without causing mold from lying on the ground.


After 7 to 10 days, the kernels reach the third and final phase of maturity, which is called the hard dough stage, where the kernel is rock hard and ready for threshing, which is separating the kernel from the skin that covers it, called the husk.


Another phenomenon takes place while the bundles are standing in the field and maturing with the rain and dew. The daily sunshine evaporating the dew stimulates the enzymes in the kernel to germinate, putting the kernels into a predigested state ready for human or animal consumption that is easily digested, as it is supposed to do.


Today, hybridized grains in conjunction with the fast, modern way of harvesting and threshing make the grain difficult to digest, which causes all kinds of problems. This way of harvesting takes the life force out of what nature has created and has made our modern wheat, which has been called by many “Frankenwheat,” which is damaging the health of the world.


Like the ancient farmers, I waited until our einkorn had reached the soft dough stage, and then I started to harvest. I was so impressed when Janay Standifird, Nikki Davis, Eddie Silcock, and Lee Bowen, with their very busy office schedules, came to help in the beginning of the harvest. They stood in awe as they watched me on the old-fashioned three-horse-drawn binder start the harvest by cutting and tying the einkorn into bundles.


Putting the stalks into “tepees,” referred to as shocking the grain, was so gratifying for everyone. The farm crew finished shocking the bundles the second day, leaving tepees standing everywhere in the fields to give the einkorn time to germinate-a scene from times long ago that can only be seen at the Young Living ranch or one or one of our farms.


In about 10 days, we will thresh the grain and be ready to send it into the production of our products-but will hold some for planting later this month.


I’m sure that many of our new members are curious about einkorn, which is why I wrote my book Ancient Einkorn, Today’s Staff of Life, which I encourage everyone to read.


Gary’s True Grit Einkorn Flour



I deal with a lot of pain because of a chronic health problem. I have learned that when I eat GMO wheat I will pay for it the next day with an increased pain level. No GMO or sugar, low pain levels. I don’t have any pain issues when I use Einkorn Flour. That is why my blog has a lot of recipes using Einkorn Flour but I also LOVE Miracle Noodles. Here is a recipe I just made up that grew from an idea I saw online. I usually marinate the noodles before using them. They take on the flavors you add. Young Living Vitality Oils are ideal to use in Miracle Noodle dishes. This one is a new favorite.

Spicy Jalapeno Dill Miracle Noodle Salad


1 pack Miracle Noodle Fettuccini (Or Miracle Noodle Ziti)
1/2 cup dill pickle juice
2 drops Dill Vitality Essential Oil
1/2 cup diced dill pickles
1/8 to 1/4 cup diced jalapeno peppers (depending on how spicy you like it.)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup ranch dressing
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/3 cup cheddar cheese, diced

Salt and pepper to taste


Drain the Miracle Noodles in a strainer, then rinse thoroughly with water. They will be stinky until well rinsed. Let them drain well. Once drained, cut the noodles (if using fettuccini) into smaller lengths. Put noodles in a good sized bowl and add 1/2 cup pickle juice to marinate for about 15 minutes. Drain and discard the pickle juice. Add 2 drops Dill Vitality Essential Oil first, toss well, then combine the remaining ingredients and mix until noodles are covered. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.

It can be a real challenge keeping balanced and on track when someone you love is going through a painful time and you become the caregiver. It is a challenge for both the person in need of care and the caregiver. Therapeutic grade essential oils can be very helpful in a variety of ways.

This is what my husband Mark and I have been going through lately. I have had to step into the role of caregiver. It’s not the norm for us at all. Mark usually does 90% of the cooking and 50% of the cleaning. He loves to cook and just don’t. 😉 I run 90% of our home business, he runs most of the household duties. Well, things have changed a bit over the past year but dramatically in the past couple of months. Mark has 3 bulging disks pressing on the nerve in his spine. It is VERY painful. Lately it is so bad he has been bedridden most days. He can get up for a few minutes but can’t take sitting or standing for very long. He has an appointment with a neurosurgeon next week. Hopefully some help soon.

I thought I would share a bit of all of this with you because you may have need of this information now or sometime in the future. Lots of things can happen to put someone in need of care, even young people.

Take Care of YOURSELF While You’re Taking Care of Others


It is a blessing that I am able to be working from home with Young Living Essential Oils. It allows me to take care of Mark but also have all kinds of oils and supplements that are helping support both of us through this stressful time.

Some days I need a little Clarity oil to get focused on things I need to to. I am running back and forth from my office to our bedroom to check on Mark and care for his needs, plus cooking, cleaning and doing laundry. Shifting back into a business mindset after being in caregiver mode can be a challenge. I used Young Living Clarity oil to get my mind focused on writing this article today. I love Clarity oil blend on normal days but really thankful I have it during this time.

Stress Away is an essential oil blend that is wonderful during times when things are going on. I find myself getting hyper when I have things to do and the interruptions keep coming. Just put some Stress Away on your hands and inhale deeply.

Lately I find myself using a LOT of Young Living Joy essential oil blend. Things have really changed for us. It makes me kind of sad when I see Mark suffering. Well, that’s an understatement. He can’t do the things he loves to do. He also feels discouraged about that. Joy is an oil that can help emotional support for both the one cared for and caregiver.

Sacred Mountain is another oil I find myself drawn to lately. When I use it I feel strong like a tree. Sacred Mountain is a blend of Ylang Ylang and conifer oils that promotes feelings of strength, empowerment, grounding, and protection when diffused. I diffuse it but I also wear it like a perfume. I love the smell.

Valor or Valor II – Use on the bottom of your feet to feel more balanced and confident as you go through the process of helping your loved one through this difficult time.

Harmony – Use on each of the energy center points of your body. There are seven of them along the body: tail bone/root, naval, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown (top of head). Helps with balance.

Peace & Calming
– The name says it all. 😉

Sleep can be an issue when a person is caring for someone with a health issue. Sleeping next to Mark, I can hear the painful outcries in the night. It is really difficult to sleep knowing your loved one is suffering. The problem is, you need your sleep so you can have the energy to take care of them.

Lavender and Cedarwood are my favorites for relaxing before bed time. Other options are Roman Chamomile, Stress Away, Valerian, Tangerine, RutaVala and Peace & Calming.

DIRECTIONS
Place coconut oil, extra-virgin olive oil and beeswax and shea butter in small glass jar. Place jar into pan and fill with approximately 2-inches of water. Heat over medium-heat, stirring mixture in jar until everything is melted. Remove pan from heat. Using a clean kitchen towel or wash cloth, carefully remove jar from pan and place on cutting board to cool. While cooling stir with knife to make sure contents stay well mixed.
Before adding your choice of essential oils, let the mixture cool a little but not too much. Letting the mixture cool helps to preserve and protect the delicate chemical constituents in the essential oils. You can speed the process by gently stirring with a clean knife. Add the essential oils while stirring and mixture is just starting to turn opaque and beginning to harden.
