September Newsletter 2018

Welcome to Fall! 


Before I even get to this month's recipes, I must share some of the BIGGEST news we have heard all year long! 

Are you ready?!

A new program called YL GO and YL GO+ are now available. This is a subscription shipping service that provides you with FREE, fast, and convenient shipping all year long!
Basically, it's like Amazon Prime but WAY better because YL GO offers free shipping on ALL its products. 

I already signed up for the YL GO+ to get FREE SHIPPING on 36 orders a year. That means shipping on all 12 of my Essential Rewards orders will be covered as well as 24 MORE Quick Orders. Your products also come in 2-4 days! It's worth EVERY PENNY.  

Do you need more NingXia Red or a last-minute birthday gift before your next ER order processes?Do you want to cash in your ER points for free products and you don't want to pay to ship them? 
No problem. With YL GO+ you get FREE SHIPPING on 24 Quick Orders a year! At a cost of $129, YL GO+ will save you ten times the cost of shipping over the year. You also get discounted shipping if you go above and beyond your 36 orders.

$129 IS THE LAUNCH PRICE, SO ACT FAST.


The other option is the YL GO subscription for $59 annually. This covers all 12 of your ER orders and throws in an extra 13th ER order with free shipping with your first subscription. You can also see how many orders you have left under YL GO under your essential rewards menu.



Now that you are super stoked about getting free shipping, let's talk about...

Online Classes 

It's time to treat our mothers and mothers-to-be with two game-changing classes. You won't be feeling lost or hopeless anymore about having safe, effective choices for our little ones. The first class will be Pregnancy and Oils on (Sept 17th, 8:30 pm). There is no better time to start taking control of your health than when you are expecting a new little bundle of joy.

Learn about the importance of using safe products while carrying your child and learn how to support your pregnancy so you can continue to feel energized, emotionally sound, and physically capable until D-day. 


If you aren't expecting, please invite your friends, neighbors, or coworkers who are. They will thank you later! 

The Second class will be Seedlings on (Oct 1, 8:30 pm). This class will dive into the Seedlings line. This line is specifically formulated for your little babies and toddlers. 


Business oil of the month!

DIY Thieves Cleaning Fizzies

Certain chores around the house are less than desirable. For you, maybe it’s taking out the garbage or cleaning out the fridge, but we can all agree that cleaning the toilet isn’t something to look forward to. That’s why we’ve created the perfect solution that will leave your bathroom smelling fresh and clean like Lemon essential oil or Thieves® or Citrus Fresh™ essential oil blends.
This recipe for DIY cleaning fizzies isn’t limited to bathroom cleanup! You can also use it to clean out small-necked bottles or use it as a dish soak for a sink full of dirty pots and pans.

DIY Thieves Cleaning Fizzies

Ingredients
  1. In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix evenly.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine water, essential oils or blends, and V-6.
  3. Pour liquids into the large bowl and whisk together until combined.
  4. Use mixture to fill ice cube tray or candy mold about three fourths full. If mixture expands and spills over mold, gently repack into the mold.
  5. Let sit overnight to dry in room temperature area. When dry, pop tablets out and store in a glass jar.
  6. When needed, put a tablet in the toilet bowl, hard-to-clean bottles, or sink full of dishes to help clean and deodorize. Let tablet sit in bowl, bottle, or sink for 20–30 minutes to fizz and dissolve. Once dissolved, flush or rinse out.

Grief, Loss and How Essential Oils Can Help You

Grief, Loss and How Essential Oils Can Help You
When you lose someone that you love, part of you becomes numb. A part of you goes through the motions, and the rest of you is trying to take away the pain. As a person who has been dealing with loss for the past year, I find myself on a roller coaster of emotions and hurt. My son Jared was a bright star shining in my life and his loss was tragic and difficult to handle. As I get through the anniversary of his leaving his family here on earth, I want to pass on some of the things that I have learned. I am hopeful that these tips may help someone else going through the grieving process.
One thing that I want to point out is that the grieving process is very personal. Each person deals with it individually. If someone tells you that it is time to “move on” or “get on with living” remember it is you who is dealing with grief not them. The best time to move on is when you are ready.

Turbulent emotions are the norm. There are several essential oils that can help you deal with the rollercoaster feelings that hit during the grieving process. If you have particular oils that you generally love, those should be on the top of your list to diffuse. Keep them handy. As you or someone you know are going through the grieving process using oils daily will help you mentally, spiritually and physically. The brain reacts to the smell of essential oils and can help you maintain your well-being.
It is especially important to maintain self-care during this time. While taking care of yourself or loved ones may be shrouded in a fog of emotions, little things can make a big difference.

Some essential oils that are used for grief or sadness include:
  • Bergamot
  • Roman Chamomile
  • Jasmine
  • Sweet Marjoram
  • Rose – personally I found rose too sweet in the early stages of grief
  • Ginger
  • Frankincense
  • Melissa
There are several more, however, this is a good start.
Here are some recipes that I’d like to share:

For the bath
3 drops Sandalwood
2 drops Melissa
2 drops Frankincense
Mix in 1 T carrier oil and put in the bath.
For the bath
½ sodium bicarbonate
½ cup Epsom salts
10 drops Bergamot EO
 Apply to skin
Joy for uplifting
Stress Away
Forgiveness
Peace & Calming
To combat guilt – yes this is common
3 drops Lavender
2 drops Chamomile roman
2 drops Jasmine
Diffuse or put in the bath

As I said earlier, each person’s method of dealing with the loss of a loved one is personal and individual. I feel that I can help others dealing with grief and let them know that they are not alone.
Essential oils are a Band-Aid for grief and can help support you as you get to the root of where your feelings come from.  Each day will be different. Some will be very difficult. Remember there is no right or wrong way to grieve. Step-by step, day-by-day, our lives move forward.

“My grief and pain are mine. I have earned them. They are part of me. Only in feeling them do I open myself to the lessons they can teach.” - Anne Wilson Schaff

“All I know from my own experience is that the more loss we feel the more grateful we should be for whatever it was we had to lose. It means we had something worth grieving for. The ones I’m sorry for are the ones that go through life not even knowing what grief is.” - Frank O’Connor

Business Blues This Summer? Here’s How to Stay Charged Up

Business Blues This Summer? Here’s How to Stay Charged Up
One of the most difficult challenges an entrepreneur faces is staying motivated. This is especially true during the summer months. After all, those around you are playing in the great outdoors, having a good time, so why shouldn’t you? Being a solopreneur means staying motivated even in those times that are distracting and slower.

Motivation is like food. You need to feed yourself every day or you won’t survive. Each person needs to figure out what makes him motivated. I have a few ideas that may help you stay charged up this summer.

Remember why you started your Young Living Business

Think about your beginnings. Say to yourself, “I started my business to ____
_____.”
  • feel better
  • share my excitement
  • discover alternatives to products
There are many, many answers to this simple question. The key is to remember why you started with Young Living.

Get inspiration from your team

Everyone has a person they know that is excited about Young Living products. Talk to that person. Enthusiasm is infectious. You will find yourself becoming excited just by being around people that are motivated.

Check your goals for the summer

Are they realistic or exceptionally challenging? My challenge to you is to make realistic goals.  Plan to execute and execute your plan! Set measurable checkpoints.

Motivate others

This may seem counterintuitive, however, one of the best ways to get yourself excited and back on track is to help others get motivated. When you motivate others, you will motivate yourself. Why? It’s fun to see others, especially those on your team, get excited.

Take time for you

It’s summer! Have some fun! Take the time to take a walk, vacation and play with your kids. Make sure that you plan that “me” time. Not only will you have a good time, you will feel livelier and more energetic.
When your emotional fuel runs dry, try these ideas to re-charge and find that motivation that you need for surviving the summer.

“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.”
                 
                                                                                                                    -Jack London

You Can Grill and Use Your Essential Oils

You Can Grill and Use Your Essential Oils
Find More Great Recipes Here: https://goo.gl/JnmCjz

I don’t know about you, but I am excited for the summer grilling season. This is a great time to have those spur of the moment get-togethers that happen when friends and family drop by your home.
Take your summer parties to a whole new level by adding essential oils to your food. Since many people aren’t sure what essential oils to use when grilling, I’m going to offer a few helpful hints to make your grilling successful.

Marinades

I use a large plastic bag to marinade meats and vegetables. Take your favorite marinade and exchange one or two of the herbs with the Vitality Essential Oil equivalent. Place meat in the bag and refrigerate for a few hours. Place on the grill. Toss unused marinade. Do not mix vegetables in with the marinade used with raw meats.
If you haven’t tried grilling vegetables before, here is a simple marinade guaranteed to be a hit. Take your plastic bag, add 1 cup balsamic vinegar, ½ cup olive oil and 3 chopped garlic cloves. Place sliced zucchini, onions, or any other vegetable you have in the bag. Marinate 1-2 hours and grill. Even the kids like this one. Note: the more aged the balsamic vinegar, the sweeter it tastes. A balsamic aged 20-30 years can be sipped easily with a spoon. If your vinegar is really tart you may want to add a sweetener such as agave.

Grilling Meat

One of the most important things about grilling meat is to make sure that it is well cooked. There are some great meat thermometers available now that will provide and instant temperature read for your meat.
Skewers are wonderful for grilling. If you use wooden skewers, soak them in water for 20 minutes before placing meat on them. Metal skewers should be sprayed with oil prior to use. Since vegetables cook faster than meat, I like to skewer my meats separate from the vegetable skewers.

Salads and Desserts

Adding oils to your salads and desserts is so easy. There are hundreds of recipes available now or make up your own. An easy way to brighten a simple tossed salad is to add EO to a bottle of Ranch Dressing. You can also add Lemon Vitality to a bundt or pound cake for a refreshing taste.
Be the ultimate BBQ hero with your healthy marinades, EO infused salads and great deserts! You will find yourself the house to be at for this summer. Happy grilling!

Successful Entrepreneurs…What They Do To Get That Way

Successful Entrepreneurs…What They Do To Get That Way
Have you ever asked yourself why some of our Young Living members do so well while others seem to disappear off the grid? Everyone starts at the same point, with the same information, and the same guidelines. So, what happens? There are several reasons that make some people very successful.
Successful entrepreneurs have several common traits that I want to share with you. You probably share many of these traits, however, there may be some that you haven’t even thought of yet.

Successful people tend to do the following:

Focus
They schedule their time carefully. Everything goes on the calendar. Multitasking, while many say that they thrive doing this, is not something that successful people tend to do. Instead they focus on one important task at a time. All attention is aimed on the task that has the biggest impact on their business.

Put family as a priority
Highly successful entrepreneurs make sure they know what is important in life, and unless they are travelling, make sure that there is always time for family. This helps them keep perspective. Remember, work will always be there.

Keep a notebook handy
Many highly successful people keep a notebook handy. You never know when you are working on a particular task that something else will pop into your head. Don’t lose the thought. Write it down. This is also a very helpful method if you are one of those people who can’t unwind from the day when it is time to sleep. Pulling your thoughts out of your head and placing them on paper helps to settle your mind.

Process e-mails 1-2 times a day
You may think that e-mail is critical to your business, however, there is no need to check it more than a couple of times each day. Remember, if the information is important to your business, you will get a telephone call. Check it in the morning and before you leave for the evening and you will find a lot more time available during the day.

Let other people do what they are good at
Do you have someone who likes to write blogs? Let them do it. Have someone who is terrific at holding classes? Go for it! Team them up with someone who hates holding a class but is great at social media. Together they can make a difference. You’ve got many people in your organization who have special talents. Focus on those talents and help them with the things that they are as talented at doing.

One good way to get started each morning is to write down the three most important things that you want to accomplish each day. Don’t pick things like reading your email or figuring out what to post on social media. These daily goals should be items that will move your business forward. For instance, three daily goals for me could be:

  • Plan my weekly call topic for my leader’s call
  • Farmer’s Market-Determine the recipe for the farmer’s market cooking demo and who will demo it. Verify the next month’s schedule. Verify handouts, samples, and supplies.
  • Calendar all classes/events that my team has scheduled for the next month. Look for holes in the schedule, who needs assistance etc.
You may wonder how someone can get all of this accomplished in one day. Well, highly successful people tend to wake up early and take advantage of the early morning hours. They also tend to keep positive on all of their activities. In other words, they aren’t afraid to tell themselves “Good job!” or “Today will be a great day!” They move ahead no matter what setbacks occur. This is one of the most challenging things to accomplish.
Everyone has the opportunity to be a successful entrepreneur. Who are the most successful people that you have seen with Young Living? One of our great successes is D. Gary Young. Here’sThe Foundation of Your Business a commentary by Gary about building your business based on your beliefs and your abilities.

Quitting is NOT an Option! How to Keep Yourself Motivated

Quitting is NOT an Option! How to Keep Yourself Motivated
Being an entrepreneur is an exciting adventure, which, at the beginning consumes your energy, attention and time. Often, once the initial excitement of new products and a fast-paced business has slowed down and life starts to return to your more normal routines, you may think that you made a mistake, or wonder why you decided to have your own business.
If you are like most people, there are moments when your motivation lulls and you may experience a level of frustration. This is especially true if you have left the corporate world as an employee and made the leap to having your own business. As an entrepreneur, any situation that impacts your business can also impact your life and vice versa. It is not unusual for people to second guess their decision on why they started their own business. Motivating yourself and your team through these normal feelings is challenging at times.
 It is easy to stay motivated and get others excited when all is going well. The challenge that we are all up to meeting, is to keep being motivated when we want to quit or slow down.
Here are some ways to motivate yourself and your team through the challenging times.

We already know that Young Living offers great products, service and support for all members, so your first item to work on is:

Remember why you became a member of Young Living
Think back to what made you start your business. Revisit your original reasons for using essential oils and get excited again. Remind yourself and your team by sharing why you became a member.  Engaging friends and fellow members in your excitement will re-ignite your previous passion for your business.

Focus on positive thoughts
When your motivation ebbs, it is easy to think negative thoughts. If you catch yourself thinking or saying, “Why did I start this business?” or “This takes too much time/money/etc.” It is time to readjust your thinking to “I started this business because _____________.” Or, I’m investing my time/money because I believe in the products and my ability to share this exciting adventure.

Set a schedule
 Plan regular hours for doing business. If you keep a crazy schedule without regular hours, you are more inclined to lose your motivation. Planning specific times to work will help you plan your free time too. Block out your work time and stick to it.

Take a break
Refresh your mind and body by planning time to meet with friends, take a vacation and separating personal time from business time.  Everyone needs a break from time to time. The most successful business people make sure that they allow time to recharge.
You may be thinking that leaders can never have down time. Not true! Everyone suffers that motivational downswing periodically. What you do when you begin to lack motivation can make a difference in the success of your business. Blending your lifestyle and livelihood takes talent. Encourage your team members to follow these tips if they hit a lull. If you need to be reminded of what success looks like, go to Member Moments and see what key members have to say.
