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.

climbingSummer is almost over. YAY! My favorite time of year is coming. I love the autumn months. It is starting to cool down a bit and the humidity is much lower. This is the time of year when many people are out trying to get a few last minute fun in the sun before the winter weather is upon us. Enjoying the fall colors with a nice hike or a bike ride. Playing sports with friends. This is also a good time for yard work and house repairs. Lots of autumn activities that could result in tired, overworked muscles.

We have these issues during all seasons. Winter months may have snow shoveling and winter sports like skiing, sledding, etc.

Improper or excessive use and tension of muscles can lead to symptoms of overworked muscles hours later. When muscles undergo excessive tension for a length of time, muscle fatigue, stiffness, and aches may be experienced.

Young Living has several products that are helpful in supporting tired achy muscles. Some of these are included in the monthly promo for September.

PanAway –
PanAway is a blend of wintergreen, which has an active principle similar to cortisone; clove, which contains eugenol, used by dentists to numb gums; peppermint, calming for nerves; and helichrysum, soothing to overworked muscles.

PanAway is a wonderful oil blend to have on hand for those days when you get a little too much exercise, play sports or work too hard.

Apply on location for muscles, compress on the spine, rub on reflexology points of feet.

Ortho Sport –
A stronger version of Ortho Ease, Ortho Sport Massage Oil is designed for both professional and amateur athletes, as well as anyone who works or plays hard. Ortho Sport Massage Oil has a higher phenol content, which has been used traditionally to produce a warming sensation and provide relief to tired muscles.

A refreshing, minty, sweet aroma is stimulating and invigorating. Great addition to lotions and ointments that are applied after activity.

Northern Lights Black Spruce can also be applied anywhere, including to the bottoms of feet, along the spine, back of neck, or used for massage. This oil includes the naturally occurring constituents alpha-pinene, camphene, and beta-pinene

These oils can also be added to the cream or salve recipe below.

Making a Salve or Cream
SOFT – This is a good one if you are wanting something closer to a lotion.
FIRM – A little more firmness.
X-TRA FIRM – this version would be a good choice for a foot or elbow balm.
HARD – Good for a lip balm or deodorant.

INGREDIENTS
1/2 Cup of Oil Mixture- a combination of…
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Beeswax, Shea Butter, or combination of the two:
SOFT: Use 2 Tbsp per 1/2 CUP of oil mixture
FIRM: Use 4 Tbsp per 1/2 CUP of oil mixture
EXTRA-FIRM: Use 6 Tbsp per 1/2 CUP of oil mixture
HARD: Use 8 Tbsp per 1/2 CUP of oil mixture

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.

How to Make Hot and Cold Compresses

Preparing for a hot compress:
Fill a bowl with very hot water.
Add 4 to 5 drops of essential oil.
Dip a folded piece of sterile cotton cloth into the prepared water. Squeeze out excess water. Place the moistened cloth onto the affected area until it reaches body temperature. Repeat steps 3 through 5 two to three times.

Preparing for a cold compress, replace hot water with ice cold water and follow with steps 2 through 6.

road-trip
Well, it’s that time of year again. there is always a lot of travel in the summer. Essential oils are always with me whenever I travel. There are lots of oils that can be helpful when you are on the road.


Thieves and Melrose are two oils I like to have for rubbing on my feet. I always hate walking barefoot on hotel bathroom floors. Sometimes you just want to take your shoes off but who knows how clean the floors really are. I guess I am a little OCD about it because I also like to bring a spray bottle filled with Thieves Household Cleaner so I can spray down the floor, tub and toilet. Just to make sure. 😉


Other oils I carry when I travel:


DiGize – Add to a gel capsule. Add 2 drops DiGize and 1 drop Peppermint to water for a stimulating beverage. Use as a dietary supplement in water when traveling abroad.


Peppermint – Supports gastrointestinal system comfort. Promotes healthy bowel function. Maintains efficiency of the digestive tract. Supports normal digestion.


NingXia Nitro – Contains naturally occurring caffeine and Bioenergy’s D­-Ribose to increase athletic performance and endurance.
Boosts energy and provides a daily pick-­me-­up. Bioenergy D-Ribose supports physical performance and recovery and increases overall energy reserves.


Deep Relief – Formulated with Peppermint, Wintergreen, Copaiba, and Helichrysum. Use for massage after activity. Inhale for an invigorating and energizing scent. Keep on hand for use at the gym to apply during workout. Blended with Peppermint, Deep Relief has a cooling sensation when applied to the skin.
The relaxing scent and fresh, cooling sensation of Wintergreen essential oil found in Deep Relief makes it a great choice for applying to feet after a long day.

To relax in the evening I like to drink my Travel Relaxation Tea but I also make up a relaxation blend:


Sleepy Time Oils Blend
30 drops Young Living Lavender Essential Oil
30 drops Young Living Cedarwood Essential Oil
30 drops Young Living Tangerine Essential Oil

Mix in a glass oil bottle. I save old essential oil bottles for making my own oil blends. Drop a few drops in night time bath or rub on your feet.
