Post Surgery Recovery With YLEO

When I was at the final phases of my recovery from surgery, this is what I used to ease the soreness of having stitches!

capsule

Each capsule has 5 drops Frankincense (you can substitute with Sacred Frankincense), 5 drops Balsam Fir and 5 drops Copaiba. You can get empty capsules from TCM halls or from YL USA.

Have a good weekend everyone!

Cooling Oils from the Reference Guide for Essential Oils

Oh the bloody heat! I perspire easily so I dieeee without aircon. And the hubs doesn’t perspire as easily as me so he has the dubious honour of sending Ju to school at 11 am every weekday. That’s right. The time where it’s becoming the hottest.

I know Peppermint helps cool us down when we apply it on our bodies and I was wondering what other oils are good?

app

So here’s the answer from the mobile app Reference Guide for Essential Oils. You can download it on iOS or Android for just under $10.

Wild Lavender Essential Oil

I’m late to the party but I finally got my Wild Lavender. Yahoo!!

I immediate opened the bottle and smell… it smells sweet! Like Lavender with nectar or something. ‪#‎wordsfailme

The original Lavender smells very “planty”, like as though I’ve stuck my nose in a lavender bush. I’m gonna diffuse this tonight and try it on the kids. Hurhurhur.

Anyone found good (compliant) uses for Wild Lavender?

Foot Soak With Empty EO Bottles

I chanced on this and thought wow, great tip for our kiddos’ bathtubs! Detox + EO = sign me up for that!

required suppliesinstructions

And since most of us stay in HDB flats and don’t have adult sized bathtubs, why not do the same and use it for a foot soak for your tired feet? After a long day at work, you deserve it!

AromaGlide Roller Fitments Tips

Have you seen the Young Living AromaGlide Roller Fitments? (What a mouthful! I usually call them ROLLERS.)

That’s what you can use to convert your usual YLEO bottle to a roller! Here’s some tips why you SHOULD consider using one of these!

zoom

1. If you have been oiling often (yourself, your family etc) and found some detox rash in between your fingers.

Using a roller minimise that EVEN when you use your fingers to rub in the oil afterwards. How is that so??? Well when you drop the oil on your palms and apply, the oil tends to seep in between your fingers which is where the rash usually happens for those prone to it.

To minimise chances of a rash even more, dilute your eo with V6 or a carrier oil!

2. When you are lazy… like me. 😃

Boy, when you need to oil MOVING SUBJECTS, aka busy toddler and inquisitive crawling baby with a few oils. So when I did is I coat each finger with one oil then run to kiddo and wipe it down on their chest / back. Mission accomplished. No more frantic parent running to and fro between oil bottles and target!

3. For the shoulders and neck

Rollers are great for places like that! Imagine rolling them on these areas rather than fussing with the oil on your hand then trying to smack it down on the said areas. Now if only I can attach a roller on a stick and run it down my back….

4. When your kid wants to oil you

When Ju wants to oil us, we hand her a roller. No spillage. Though she can get caught up in rolling rolling….

5. When kiddo is resistant to getting oiled

Well you can either do Tip Two, or you can get smart like my hubs. He would ask Ju, what shape would you like? She replied and he would “draw” it on her chest / back. She loves hearts and diamonds, that one.

Do you know?

That each roller fitment has a little reservoir sitting under the ball bearing. So even if you oil with the bottle upright, there’s still oil coming out because the reservoir has some of it.

 

QNA

How much rolling = 1 drop?

Generally when you roll on 2 inches, that’s about 1 drop. 😃

How do I install and remove the roller from the bottle?

Thieves Fresh Essence Plus Mouthwash Review

Last week when Jonathan Teo was away at convention, I became the QUEEN of the household. Well… that is if the queen is on the beck and call of her 2 kids day and night. 😂

As a result of little rest, my teeth and gums were sensitive and swollen. When I chew, I wince.

So I’ve just started to gargle with my Thieves mouthwash when I can remember! It soothes and calms my gums and teeth and I hope with adequate rest this week, the discomfort will go away!

Postpartum Hair Loss

This came up in one of our group chats today. Don’t u hate it when your once crowning glory becomes a waning mane?

I’ve been shedding boatloads of hair too since 2 months ago and found Sulfurzyme helps with hair growth among other things. So despite shedding like a furkid, my hair is still thick. Nice for such cold weather now.

There’s No Smell In My Flowers

I thought in celebration of Valentine’s Day, I would write this cheeky post. 😀 And regardless whether you do get flowers, whether you are part of a couple, enjoy Valentine’s Day. Love yourself!

BUT THERE’S NO SMELL IN MY FLOWERS!

Have you realised that our flowers from the florists nowadays don’t really smell erm, flowery? Especially with Valentine’s Day coming up. ‪#‎truestory

Wish that you could have your home smells like a meadow of flowers? Or when you sniff the bouquet that your love gave you, that the floral fragrance suffuse you and you go into a romantic haze?

NOW YOU CAN with this lovely diffusing recipe from Pei Jansen‪#‎teeheehee

“I’ve been recommending what I call the Floral Bouquet diffusing recipe to my girlish friends on weekends in the living room. They love it! That’s 3 drops Lavender, 2 drops Geranium, 1 drop Ylang ylang.”

 

IMG_2789

I’ve tried it and while I thought it would be like “overpowering floral”, it wasn’t! It’s a light flowery fragrance, like as though you are strolling through a meadow of flowers, dancing in the wind, and can smell beauty and nature mixed together. Or having English tea with your girlfriends in the gardens, wearing Laura Ashley. #‎imaginationoverload

Let’s take a look at some usages for each oil:

Ylang Ylang

Traditionally this is the flower that is strewn over the newlywed bed on wedding night! It also helps one to balance the male and female energies within, supports better focus by spiritual attunement and filters out garbage from the mind.

Geranium

Releases negative memories and take us back to peaceful, joyful moments. It balances our emotions and relieves stress and tension. Interestingly it also supports the liver and blood by releasing the toxins and improving circulation.

Lavender

Oh powerful Lavender! Lavender is a universal oil that has traditionally been known to balance the body and to work wherever there is a need. If in doubt, use lavender.

And of course if you want to learn the full potential of these oils, please check out your eo resources too!

Cool Azul Sports Gel

I’m so cool~~~~

Here’s Cool Azul, the new sports gel released in this year’s convention. I got it for the hubs so he can apply, post workout. Coupled with drinking orange in water, it’ll make for an enjoyable experience!

And you know lah, how ingenious we YL folks can be. Kai suggests that it can be used like a Vicks chest rub too. And just nice for kids since its only 10% essential oils. Hohoho. Today Ju smelled very cool~~.

I’ve also piak some on my neck and it feels real good in this hot weather! ‪#‎damnhaze

So yes ahem. YL products. 1 product, many uses. 😀  ‪#‎mostbangforyourbuck
