We have all the felt the effects of sleep deprivation: that zombie-like feeling that consumes us the moment we roll out of bed. Our eyes are heavy, we can’t think straight, everything in a blur. Like mechanical robots, we go about our day not fully comprehending what is going on around us.
The negative effects of sleep deprivation are quickly becoming an alarming issue. According to a recent poll, 58 percent of adults in the US experience symptoms of insomnia several nights a week.
Sleep-deprived individuals find it hard to concentrate or feel productive during the day. Perhaps worst of all, more and more are driving drowsy. In fact, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that 100,000 of reported crashes occur as a result of drowsiness.
Getting a good night’s sleep is important for mental health and normal functioning, but it’s pertinent for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Single essential oils such as valerian, spikenard, and lavender are known for their ability to relax, calm, and emotionally ground a person. RutaVaLa, Peace & Calming and Gentle Baby are soothing essential oil blends that have similar effects. These oils can be diffused, inhaled, massaged into the feet prior to retiring to help ease tension and settle the mind.
DURING THE DAY:
Consume less or no caffeine, particularly late in the day.
Avoid alcohol and nicotine, especially close to bedtime.
Exercise, but not within three hours of going to bed.
Avoid naps, especially in the late afternoon or evening.
Establish a regular sleep schedule; dont try to make up for lost sleep.
Take a warm bath using a few drops of lavender in the water to soothe away stress and tension before retiring at night.
Rub a drop of essential oil such as lavender on your palm and smooth over pillow to aid with sleep.
Apply Peace & Calming or another soothing oil to the feet before bedtime to promote relaxation.
Young Living’s SleepEssence contains four relaxing essential oils in a softgel vegetarian capsule for easy ingestion. Combining lavender, vetiver, valerian, and Ruta graveolens essential oils with the hormone melatonin.
With summer coming up we tend to get out and be more active with gardening, yard work, hiking, sports and other activities. There are so many fun things to do we often find ourselves having a little too much fun. It’s times like that I am really appreciating the use of essential oils.
More than two decades ago, Gary Young traveled throughout North America, Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East to find optimal conditions for distilling the world’s finest essential oils. Today, Young Living owns and operates three farms in Idaho, Utah, and France. The Young Living Lavender Farm in Utah is one of the largest essential oil distilleries in North America and our essential oils are purchased by customers in over twenty-five different countries.
Young Living’s line of genuine authentic grade essential oils and unique essential oil blends are sourced from the world’s finest plants.
A low-pressure and low-temperature steam distillation process is the only way to preserve the beneficial properties of the oils. This process is far superior to the inexpensive, high-pressure, high-temperature practice commonly used to distill essential oils in other companies.
Customizing the distillation of each plant species maximizes the benefits of the essential oil. Proper placement and compression of the herbs in the cooking chambers, as well as the correct application of steam to plant material, helps safeguard essential oil purity; high-grade, non-ferrous stainless steel chambers are used to prevent chemical reactions of the oils and metal.
Young Living farms grow over fifteen different types of herbs and source a variety of other oils from reputable essential oil suppliers. Young Living is committed to sourcing oils from other companies that adhere to strict quality specifications and personally inspect the facilities and use state-of-the-art chemical analyses to examine each batch of essential oil. Essential oils can go through as many as five different levels of analyses before they are released.
Did you know it takes 12,500 liters of lavender stems and flowers to produce 4 to 5 gallons of essential oil, and as many as 5,000 rose petals to make a 5 ml bottle of rose essential oil? Essential oils are the most easily and widely adulterated of all natural products, and when consumers use synthetic oils, they may experience a number of unpleasant side effects. Less expensive, similarly scented oils are often substituted, mislabeled, and sold by, competing brands. While the aromas of these substitutes closely match, their chemistry and properties are very different.
James Kababick, director of one of the largest independent labs for chemical analyses of essential oils, collected samples from Young Living’s Utah distillery and concluded: “Young Living has united modern steel technology with Old World gentle distilling techniques to create fill- bodied essential oils that are far different from what we normally see.”
Young Living essential oils are not diluted with chemical and synthetic additives and are carefully prepared to maintain plant integrity. This commitment to purity makes Young Living’s essential oils the world’s premium essential oil line.
PRISTINE LAND Untilled land far from pollution of urban centers.
VIRGIN SOIL Fortified soi1 with organic biosolids, enzymes and minerals.
SELECT SEEDS + CAREFUL PLANTING Non-genetically modified (GMO) herb vane ties are nurtured in Young Living’s greenhouse. Once they reach a height of 2″‘ the plants are moved to a “hardening house” so they can better adjust to the outdoor climate, which increases their chance of survival.
ORGANIC WEED + PEST CONTROL No synthetic chemicals, herbicides, or fungicides are used. Instead, Young Living relies on Mother Nature to control insects and a natural blend of essential oils, including pine and cinnamon, for weed control.
MOUNTAIN WATER IRRIGATION All crops are irrigated using pure mountain water generated from snow melt. Water is rich with minerals that provide essential
nutrients to maximize Grit-growth.
PRECISION HARVESTING Fields are harvested at the correct time of year and even the proper time of day to optimize oil quality. The percentage of the plant in bloom, the amount of dew on the leaves, and even the amount of rainfall immediately before the harvest can have a direct impact on oil quality.
The Law of Attraction is an amazing energy. It is always at work. We attract whatever matches the energy or vibrations we are sending out or radiating. If we have a fearful energy because we are listening to the news and hearing about how bad the economy is, we will attract negative things. It becomes more difficult to attract the abundance we want in our life.
I have been using Abundance oil for over 15 years. It was the first Young Living oil I used and it is the reason I am with Young Living Essential Oils today.
Abundance oil raises your energy to a more attracting energy. It also is very mood uplifting. Abundance is a wonderful oil to enhance the Law of Attraction. EFT is also a powerful tool to use along with the law of attraction. Put EFT and Abundance oil together and you have a really powerful tool to attract abundance.
Daily EFT can really set the tone for your abundance energy as you set about to do the daily tasks in your business. Not only does EFT help remove fears but it also enhances the law of attraction.
If you are in any kind of business, you need to have a good energy that attracts business. This good energy is needed in all aspects of our life, not just business. We can be abundant in all kinds of ways. When we have a good positive energy, we have a better mood and things just seem to work better. We have more fun in our life. Abundance overflows into all areas of our life.

Abundance oil blend is my favorite oil of all Young Living’s oils. Abundance oil blend is the reason I am a distributor with Young Living Essential Oils. It is a very uplifting oil that smells wonderful, but Abundance oil blend also attracts abundance. I have seen it over and over in my life and especially in my business.
Abundance oil is one that we really need, especially in the times we are living in with the economic situation the way it is.
If you are familiar with the Law of Attraction, you know that what you focus on you attract more of. When you worry and stress over the economy, you hinder the abundant energy you have in your body. That makes it almost impossible to build a business or attract any kind of abundance.
I have seen the Law of Attraction working from both sides. I see it today in my prosperous business but years ago, I went through a time where I was desperate to generate enough income to just make ends meet.
That was a time of struggle financially. I was in a sales job with a home cleaning system where I had to visit people’s home to demonstrate the cleaner and only got paid when I sold one. It seemed as though I couldn’t sell one if my life depended on it. Actually, my financial life did depend on it.
The owner of the company came with me on some presentations to see what I was doing wrong. When we were leaving a home presentation, she said, “I don’t understand why you aren’t selling anything, you are really good!”
I didn’t understand the Law of Attraction back than but I do today. The reason I couldn’t make any sales is because I had an energy vibration of desperation. I desperately needed a sale.
I was radiating that desperate energy. People could feel it. They didn’t realize it and I didn’t realize I was affecting people with my desperate energy.
Here is another example – Around that same time my husband and I were traveling and doing art shows for our jewelry designs. Mark, my husband, made flameworked glass beads and I did copper enamel designs. We put them together with gemstones and made beautiful works of wearable art.
We won several best of show awards with our designs and even drew crowds with Mark demonstrating glass bead making over a flame, but making enough money to create a living was a real struggle. We would often just cover show expenses. People would come in and rave about how beautiful our designs were and then just leave.
Oh how I wish I had known about Abundance oil back then! Well, today I am so very grateful for Abundance oil blend. It is, hands down, my favorite oil. I use it EVERY DAY. By using Abundance oil, I become like a magnet attracting abundance. I would never consider touching anything business related without using Abundance oil first.
Abundance is a blend that raises your energetic vibration to attract greater prosperity into your life. It is an oil blend that is “created to enhance the frequency of the harmonic magnetic energy field that surrounds us. This higher frequency creates the “law of attraction,” a harmonic magnetic energy field around oneself.

I put Abundance oil on before I go to town for any reason, especially when I go shopping. It helps me find all kinds of good deals. I have even found money on the ground several times.
One time I found a bunch of money blowing around in the wind. In the process of picking it up, I saw a wallet. It had the name and address of the person who lost it. I put all the money back in the wallet and took it to him. I knocked on his door and told him I found his wallet. He was so thrilled to get his credit cards and drivers license, he gave me all the money inside as a reward.
If you are a Young Living Distributor, you should be wearing Abundance oil everywhere. It is a great conversation starter. Abundance oil smells wonderful and MANY people ask me what that wonderful smell is. That is an automatic opening to share a drop of Abundance oil and give your business card.
At Young Living headquarters they added one bottle Abundance oil to every 5 gallon bucket of paint when painting the offices. They also put drops of oil on the phones in the early days.
