Goldenrod Essential Oil

Goldenrod

(Solidago canadensis)

topical aromatic

A flowering herb with bright yellow tops, goldenrod  comes from the Asteraceae botanical family. Its scientific name, Solidago, comes from the Latin word solidare, which means “to strengthen.” The plant is most often found in North America, but some species are found in Europe as well. It grows well in open areas such as meadows, prairies, savannas, and mountains, and you can find it at Young Living’s Whispering Springs Farm in Mona, Utah!

Goldenrod essential oil is steam distilled from the flowers, leaves, and stems of the plant, and with the key constituent alpha-pinene, this essential oil has an array of benefits. Use it to support the appearance of healthy-looking skin and to create a calming and relaxing environment when diffused or inhaled.

Orders are limited to one bottle per account per month.

MEGACAL™ calcium supplement

MEGACAL™ calcium supplement

by Young Living

We all know that calcium is important for bone health, but did you know that taking calcium alone is not enough?   In order to assist the body in absorbing the calcium, you also need to be sure you have enough Vitamin D, Vitamin K, and Magnesium  in your system.

I’ve talked about Super Cal Plus™ in a previous blog.  Super Cal Plus supports the structure, integrity, and density of bones and teeth with a synergistic blend of bioavailable calcium, magnesium, vitamins D and K, and other trace minerals.*  Super Cal Plus comes in a convenient capsule form.

For those of us who have a difficult time taking capsules, or maybe just prefer to add powder supplements to our drinks or smoothies, MegaCal is a great option.  Both Super Cal Plus and MegaCal contain Calcium and Magnesium, with some changes in supporting minerals and vitamins detailed below.

Mega Cal labelssuper cal plus abels

MegaCal™ is a wonderful source of calcium, magnesium, manganese, and vitamin C. MegaCal supports normal bone and vascular health as well as normal nerve function and contains 207 mg of calcium and 188 mg of magnesium per serving.*  The powder has a light lemon flavor so it mixes very nicely with water or juice.

MegaCal.

How to Use:  Take 1 scoop (1 tsp) (5g) with 1 cup (240 ml) of water or juice daily, one hour after a meal or taking medication or an hour before bedtime. Do not exceed 3 servings daily.

Caution: For human consumption only. Keep out of reach of children. If pregnant, nursing, taking medications, or have a medical condition, consult a healthcare practitioner prior to use. Do not feed Megacal to dogs.

CortiStop® Supplement

CortiStop®

CortiStop® is a proprietary dietary supplement designed to help the body maintain its natural balance and harmony.* When under stress, the body produces cortisol. When cortisol is produced too frequently, it can have negative health consequences such as feelings of fatigue, difficulty maintaining healthy weight, and difficulty maintaining optimal health of cardiovascular systems. CortiStop supports the glandular systems of women.*

If you are like me, you are STRESSED.  I also have difficulty maintaining a healthy weight and may have difficulty maintaining healthy cortisol levels.  Stress can play a big role in this area and during the holidays there is PLENTY of stress to go around.   Stress can create higher estrogen levels which can limit the ability of the adrenal the thyroid glands to manage cortisol levels.

To learn more, please visit Lindsey Elmore’s blog post, Science of CortStop.  You will learn SO much from her, including how each unique ingredient is working to balance the stress response.

cortistop

How to use: Take 2 capsule in the morning before breakfast. If desired, for extra benefits, take another two capsule before retiring. Use daily for 8 weeks. Discontinue use for 2-4 weeks before once more resuming.

Tangerine Essential Oil

Tangerine Essential Oil
(Citrus reticulata)

topical aromatic

Tangerine essential oil is for use aromatically and topically while Tangerine Vitality essential oil is dietary and therefore can be ingested.  Both bottles contain the same essential oil and differ only in the way they are labeled.  The designation of the two products allows you to share all the ways to use essential oils in the correct and FDA approved way

Tangerine essential oil (Citrus reticulata) is extracted by cold pressing the rind of the tangerine fruit. Tangerines, which are part of the Rutaceae family, likely originated in Southeast Asia and have since spread to subtropical areas around the world. Like the fresh citrus fruit, Tangerine oil is loved by children and adults alike, with its delightfully sweet aroma that can create a happy, contented mindset.

Because of its appealing aroma, Tangerine oil uses include a wealth of topical and aromatic applications. Use its cleansing benefits in your morning skin care routine for an added boost or apply it to your temples before study time or meditation. Its fragrant, calming aroma also makes it an important part of Young Living favorites such as Peace & Calming®Joy™, and Citrus Fresh™.

How to use: For aromatic or topical use. Diffuse, inhale, or add to bath water. Apply to crown of head, back of neck, behind ears or inside wrists. Possible skin sensitivity.

  1. Diffuse at work or at home to infuse your space with a sweet, refreshing aroma.
  2. Add to a gentle facial cleanser for extra cleansing benefits and beautifying properties.
  3. Add to your favorite cleaning products for a burst of sweet citrus.
  4. Create a DIY air freshener by combining 30 drops oil with 2 cups water in a glass bottle. Spray around the house for a fresh, clean scent.
  5. Even clean linens may need a little freshening. Combine 8–10 drops with distilled water or witch hazel in a small spray bottle and spritz over linens and in closets to keep your sheets, towels, and clothes smelling great.
  6. Place a couple drops of oil on cotton balls to stash in your car air vents. They’ll disperse a refreshing, citrus scent that’s perfect for rush hour.
  7. My personal favorite is to diffuse peppermint and tangerine in the morning to give me a burst of energy to get me moving!
