Purification essential oil blend, 15 ml
• Freshen your laundry. Add 2 drops of Purification to wool dryer balls, be sure to let dry fully, and toss in with your load for great-smelling clothes.

• Banish bathroom odors. Moisten a cotton ball with a drop or two of Purification and stash between the trash can and liner.

Cinnamon Bark essential oil, 5 ml
• Make stuffy spaces feel cozy. Add 4 drops of Cinnamon Bark to a glass spray bottle filled with water and use as a room spray to refresh stale air.

• Make dish duty smell yummy. Put a few drops of Cinnamon Bark in your dish soap for a warm, spicy scent that smells good enough to eat.

Lemon essential oil, 15 ml

• Tackle tough stains. Make your own sink and shower scrub with 10 drops Tea Tree, 1 cup baking soda, and 1/4 cup dish soap.

• Make bad smells a memory. If your towels still smell after washing, spray them with a mixture of 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup witch hazel or rubbing alcohol, and 30 drops Tea Tree.

Branded spray bottle (Essential Rewards Exclusive)
• Dabble in DIY. Instead of compromising on iffy ingredients, blend your own botanically based cleaners in this spray bottle.

• Clean with confidence. Thanks to the dilution chart on the back of the bottle, you can ditch any doubt when using Thieves Household Cleaner.

Eucalyptus Radiata essential oil, 15 ml (Essential Rewards Exclusive)
• Kick out kitchen stink. Diffuse Eucalyptus on its own or with Lemon and Rosemary to get that clean kitchen scent—even if you still have dirty dishes in the sink.

With all the stress we face every day we can easily find ourselves feeling bad and reaching for a snack. Do you ever find yourself falling into a habit of emotional eating to deal with the stress?

I learned something interesting a while back that helped make a connection in my brain. There was a segment on a morning show on how your personality could contribute to weight gain. They mentioned how stress raises cortisol levels. We knew that but here’s the thing I didn’t realize: When your cortisol level is high, you start craving carbs.


Here’s another interesting thing . . .


Stress Away Reduce Emotional Eating


Did you know that eating sugar and starchy carbs raise your cortisol levels even higher?

So as cortisol goes up, it increases carb cravings, and after indulging in starchy or sugary carbs, guess what else follows suit with it? You start feeling emotionally crappy because you indulged. This contributes to the vicious cycle of emotional eating.


When I heard this information I was so happy I always keep some of Young Living’s Stress Away Roll-On handy. Stress Away is especially useful to help with stress related eating. I have been using Stress Away in the afternoons and evenings ever since I learned about that. I have noticed that, when I use Stress Away I have a much easier time resisting the urge to have a snack. Hearing that bit about cortisol levels really reinforced my intent to keep using Stress Away.


I’m enjoying a cup of Slique tea and rolling on a bit of Young Living’s Stress Away as I write this blog post. It has been a strangely stress filled day today and I am thankful for these products from Young Living. Have you tried Slique Tea? Oh MY!! I love the taste. It’s yummy!

A lot of people struggle with weight management. It’s so easy to grab a tasty snack when you have a stressful or busy day, but that doesn’t help you reach those goals. This is the time of year people set goals to make changes like exercise more, eat healthier and drop a few pounds.

Emotional Freedom Techniques or EFT along with essential oils can be a support when you are working on fitness and weight management goals. Emotional Freedom Techniques is a form of psychological acupressure. With EFT you are tapping on various acupuncture meridian points while you focus on a negative issue you would like to change. Add a couple drops of essential oils to your fingertips before you begin tapping through the points and EFT is even more amazing.

Tap While You Gripe is one of my favorite ways to use Emotional Freedom Techniques. It is a super simple technique. Just talk and tap through the EFT points.

There are times when you have had a high stress day and are at risk for emotional eating and snacking. Sometimes it helps to talk it over with someone. Talking and venting your feelings can be helpful. Why not try tapping while you are talking or THINKING about the issue that is bothering you. Just tap and tell the story. You can talk to a real person or pretend there is someone you are talking to.

Don’t get too worried about the exact wording you use or what order of points to tap. You don’t even need to say the words out loud. Just focus on the negative emotion you want to clear. Keep talking or thinking and tapping.

I use the Tap While You Gripe technique all the time, especially if I am really upset about something but I don’t know where to start. When you start tapping and talking, things will come to mind. Just keep tapping and expressing anything you are feeling until you have poured it all out. Focus on whatever you want to say about the negative, then SHIFT to the positive side. What you WANT.

Using Essential Oils & EFT To Support Weight Management Goals
The EFT Points:

KC = Karate Chop
EB = Beginning of the Eye Brow
SE = Side of the Eye
UE = Under the Eye
UN = Under the Nose
Ch = Chin
CB = Beginning of the Collar Bone
UA = Under the Arm
WR = Inside of Wrists
TH = Top of Head

You can also tap the fingertip points. Each finger can be tapped at the base of the nail.

Here are a few oils and ideas for supporting fitness goals:

Stress Away – This one is great for calming after a stressful, hectic, busy day. Put Stress Away on fingertips and start tapping about why you feel stressed. Sometimes I just tap about the desire to have a carby snack. “I know I want some chips but I know it’s not really going to help. . . ” Keep going with whatever you feel until the desire passes.

Peace & Calming – Another great one for calming after a stressful day.

Release – This one is good for releasing anger. If someone makes you angry or irritated, tapping with Release essential oil blend can help you release the anger or irritation of whatever it was that happened. Some days you just feel angry and don’t really know why. Put release on your fingertips and tap through the points saying, “I’m feeling angry (or irritated, annoyed or whatever). I choose to release the anger. I am releasing this anger. . . ” If you know the specific reason why you are feeling angry, tap on that first, then, tap while saying “I am releasing this anger. . . ” Use whatever negative emotion you want to release.

Motivation – Motivation oil blend is another one of my favorites. Just as the name implies, it energizes and motivates. I love this oil whenever I am having trouble getting motivated to do any task. Motivation oil is wonderful before exercise but also on days when you don’t feel motivated to stick to healthy eating habits.

Using Motivation oil and EFT For lack of motivation when you are not motivated to exercise. You could start tapping and say: “I am not motivated to exercise but I know I will feel great after I do it. . .” OR “I am not motivated to eat healthy today but I know I will feel better if I stick to my plan. . .”

Acceptance – This oil blend encourages feelings of self-worth and acceptance. This can feel difficult because we tend to beat up on ourselves when there are extra pounds we are wanting to release. You might be thinking, “I don’t like these extra pounds and I don’t want to accept them.” Accepting is not does not mean you want to keep the pounds. It just means that you love and accept yourself enough to take really GOOD care of your body and show it the love it deserves.

First, before you can really make changes, it is important to accept yourself and know you are worthy of success in whatever you goal you are working toward. Accept and love yourself enough to take better care of yourself through the process of getting to the goal.

Transformation – This is a good oil for focusing on the changes you want to make. Visualize yourself moving forward and reaching your goal. Focus on the positive thing you are working toward and see yourself achieving it.

Envision – Same thing! Focus on the changes you want to make. Visualize yourself already successful and doing the things that cause success. Focus on the positive thing you are working toward and SEE yourself achieving it.
Daily visualization is really important for achieving your goals. You need to see it in your mind’s eye to be able to achieve it.
Use Envision along with visualization. You can also use the Tap While You Visualize technique. Just close your eyes and think visualize reaching your goal. Get as detailed as possible in your thinking. Tap through the EFT points while you are visualizing.

There are other essential oil blends that would also be helpful. If an oil or oil blend feels right for whatever your situation at the moment, go with it. 😉

Granola bars are a quick, on the go food but usually the ones you buy are full of sugar and things that are not so healthy. This recipe is a healthier option.

One thing I like about granola and granola bars is that you can use whatever nuts and dried fruits you want. Just substitute with whatever you have on hand.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup almonds
1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup Golden flaxseed meal
1/4 cup unsweetened dried wolfberries
1/3 cup sugar-free chocolate chips
1/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil
1/4 cup Swerve or other natural sweetener
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1–2 drops cinnamon essential oil
2 large egg whites

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, mash the bananas until smooth. Stir in the vanilla and cinnamon essential oil.

In a food processor, pulse almonds and walnuts intermittently, until most of the nuts are in chopped into large pieces.

Add the oats, sunflower seeds, Swerve, golden flaxseed meal Pulse just until everything is mixed well. Don’t over-process! Most of the seeds should be intact.

Add banana mixture and pulse to mix. Add the egg white to the food processor. Whisk together the melted butter and vanilla extract in a small bowl, and evenly pour that in, too. Add chocolate chips.

Pulse a couple times, mix a little from the bottom toward the top with a spatula, then pulse a couple times again. Repeat as needed until everything is coated evenly.

Spoon and press mixture into a prepared baking dish.

Bake for 25–30 minutes until firm and lightly golden along the edge. Place dish on cooling rack for 10 minutes; then lift the bars out by lifting the parchment paper. Place granola slab on a cooling rack, and allow to cool.

Slice into bars, and enjoy!

NOTE: These bars will keep longer if stored in an air–tight container or bag in the fridge or freezer.

These days I have been sticking pretty seriously to a Keto diet because of serious health issues. My tastes generally run toward the crunchy salty, but there are some days you just need something to satisfy the sweet tooth. These cookies are really yummy plain or with a bit of cream cheese spread on top.

Keto Low Carb Cinnamon Butter Cookies

Ingredients

1 3/4 cups Almond Flour
1/4 cup Coconut Flour
1 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 cup Monkfruit or Swerve sweetener (I like to use half Swerve and half other sweetener)
1/2 cup salted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp ground cinnamon
5 drops Young Living Cinnamon Vitality Essential Oil

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 300

Cream the butter and sweetener until light and fluffy. This is very important for a good cookie texture. Cream your butter and the sweetener with your mixer for about 10 minutes, scraping the bowl 2-3 times to make sure any streaks of butter are combined.

Add remaining ingredients and mix until well combined.

Roll into 16 balls. I like to flatten and shape them but you can place the balls, then press with a fork. Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. If you want a softer cookie, take them out around 12 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack.
