Postpartum Hair Loss

hair

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.”

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

Vetiver, Oh Vetiver!

Psst I’ll let you in on a secret….

Till 3 nights ago, I haven’t tried Vetiver yet in my years of using the YL oils.

I mean I’ve heard of it, how calming it is and how it can help enlarge breasts! But I didn’t reach for it since I like to think that:

  1. I’m very calm
  2. My chest size is just fine!

Until Pei Jansen told me about her “enchanted forest at dusk” diffuser blend (2 drops Vetiver, 3 drops Lavender, 5 drops Tangerine). I am so intrigued by the description that I simply gotta try it.

diffuser blend

I dug out my Vetiver and as I dripped it into the diffuser, the smell hit me! Oh wow! I’m trying to describe how lovely, how complicated it smells to me. Its smoky, musky, woodsy. #loveatfirstsight

My first thought was I gotta get more bottles! And because I’m curious about its properties, I went to read up more on it.

Among its many many properties, Vetiver is also an immune stimulant, promotes restful sleep and can help with oily, tired, aging, irritated skin. Interestingly enough, it calms the nervous system WHILE stimulates circulation.

And yes like Myrrh, it’s a very thick oil so be patient as you drip it out!

I shall be diffusing Vetiver tonight.

Motivation with Clarity EO

The following may or may not be a true story…

In a WhatsApp group chat with Steffie Sam, Irene Koh and Connie Wong:

Steffie: I don’t know what to write about for this week for LAO FB. No ideas liao… Plus I am having a headache today. A bad one.
Faith: Eh so simple. You go plonk oils on your head. Oils for occasional head discomfort (sometimes this compliant language makes me laugh.) 200 words. Go!
Steffie: Ok ok like that, I pick one topic for you too lah. Go write about oils for motivation. And you CANNOT mention Motivation eo. 200 words. Go!

(Steffie subsequently convinced Irene and Connie to join this impromptu challenge too. That woman ah, persuasive persuasive.)

So as a result of this challenge, I am now writing to you all on what I use for motivation without using Motivation eo. And that oil is… Clarity! #ifeelsosleepy #bedtimesoon

clarity

If you have seen my video on what oils I use to do my business planning and work, I actually flashed this large red pouch onscreen. That’s my work pouch and inside I have a large arsenal at my disposal, hahaha.

I love my business. And the truth is I do love most of what I do. I love the writing, teaching, sharing, coaching, working with my teams…

But I also got stuff I don’t like. I DISLIKE administration and logistics. Like mailing out stuff. Or coordinating for payments. I really procrastinate and the molehill gets bigger and bigger each day…

I like using Clarity to start my work because:

1. It gets me clear on why I am doing this. I may not like the specific task I am doing at hand but getting clear on why it is important, how it contributes to my grand vision, gets me to finish it.

2. If you look up Clarity in the mobile app, Reference Guide for Essential Oils, Clarity is especially created to help with metal alertness, focus and memory retention. So important for mundane stuff like administration.
TIP: If you or your kids are preparing for the exams in May, Clarity is an awesome oil to use!

3. There is oils like Cardamom, Lemon and Peppermint inside which perks me up. Especially when I feel sluggish, unmotivated and lazy. Like when I am writing this post. Heh.

Over to Steffie, Irene and Connie!
