In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. In separate bowl, beat the whipping cream to soft peaks.


In a saucepan on the stove, sprinkle the gelatin over the water–let rest for about 1 minute. Then stir in the Swerve, lime juice, Lime Vitality Essential Oil, and Stevia drops. Turn the heat on low and stir until the sugar dissolves.


Pour the gelatin mixture slowly into the cream cheese. Turn the mixer on medium and keep blending until the mixture has a smooth texture. Then fold in the whipped cream.


Spoon the mixture onto the crust and spread evenly. Garnish with toasted coconut and grated lime. Refrigerate for a few hours, then remove the springform.

If you care about healthy living, you know that the products we use go way beyond the intended use. What you do today in the name of beauty may affect your health in the years to come.

skin-careOur skin is our largest organ; it is also the most noticeable. The skin acts as a protective barrier for our body. Many people don’t realize how absorbent the skin is. They use all kinds of products that are full of dangerous chemical ingredients, which are absorbed by the skin.

Two common ingredients in shampoo, bath products, toothpaste and other skin care products are sodium laurel sulfate and propylene glycol. If you are using products with these ingredients, you are literally soaking and absorbing these chemicals into your body on a daily basis. Every chemical or toxin we come in contact with can end up compromising our health.

There are many ways to replace some of the products with chemicals in favor of more healthy ones. If you are using Young Living products, you can be sure that you are using products that are safe. Gary has often said, “If you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin.”

Below are some recipes you can make to use along with Young Living’s personal care products.
