Acceptance

While Sol sleeps, I sneaked out and did some business planning early morning!

I got a new bottle of Acceptance on Monday and eagerly open it today. Mmm…. so what does it do?

According to Reference Guide for Essential Oils mobile app, Acceptance helps stimulate the mind to open up and accept new things in life, enabling us to reach toward our higher potential. It may also be beneficial in helping one overcome denial or procrastination and to help create a feeling of security.

And there’s my always favorite Inspiration. I use this oil a lot when I wanted to create something new for the LAO leaders and need great ideas!

Do you use oils to help you be your BEST SELF during your work? I would love to hear from you!

Gentle Baby Body Wash Review

Since I got pregnant and gave birth to my kids, I have always love the smell of Gentle Baby. To me, this is an oil that reminds me of my pregnancies and the joy of welcoming a new child to the family.

Recently my love of this oil was reignited when Pei Jansen, our DIY expert, gave this nice tip for DIY-ing our own toiletries. Pei mentioned that Gentle Baby is luxurious and beautiful for babies and kids when added to their bath wash.

So from a recycled Thieves foaming hand soap pump bottle, I’ve added boiled water, some Castile Soap and 18 drops of Gentle Baby (for details, see a similar recipe here).

My review? It’s really really nice! The smell of Gentle Baby suffuse the bathroom as I bathed my kids and memories of my pregnancies and when they are babies came back to me. Because Gentle Baby also have great skin oils such as Rosewood, Geranium, Lavender, Jasmine, Rose and Palmarosa, I noticed that my son’s skin doesn’t have dry skin patches after a bath. Hooray!

Here’s some other tips you can use with Gentle Baby:

  1. You can apply Gentle Baby then sealed with Rose Ointment (or Animal Scent Ointment) to support skin recovery, e.g. minor skin irritations, diaper rashes, etc.
  2. For some babies and kids, Gentle Baby soothe them and calm them to sleep.
  3. According to the Reference Guide for Essential Oils, Gentle Baby is great for scars too.
  4. Gentle Baby also promotes bonding between caregiver and child so this is a lovely gift to get for new mothers for their baby showers.
  5. It brings a feeling of peace ESPECIALLY during pregnancy, so if you don’t have Stress Away or Lavender, use Gentle Baby instead!

Dispensing Top For Thieves Household Cleaner Bottle

Grab this handy sprout from NTUC then fix it on your Thieves household cleaner so when you pour, you control the amount and flow.

Or if the seal is still intact, look for a round indent on it and just poke a hole through. Don’t rip away the seal completely because it’s gonna be hard to pour out just a little with a large opening. And you only needs a little Thieves household cleaner to make it go a long long way.

Stretch Your YL Lotion

As and when, I’ll be sharing tips on using your YL oils and products. Some will make your life easier and some will help you stretch your products and your budget! 😉

Let’s take it away with Lavender Hand And Body Lotion!

Do you find it really thick like me? I’ve noticed that it tends to leave white smears if I don’t vigorously rub it in!

So what I do is I empty out half the bottle and store it somewhere. Then add distilled water to dilute it further. Its more runny now, easier to apply and IS STILL JUST AS GOOD!

Rose

I remember when I was a teenager, I would go gaga over the lovey dovey couples out there and stare in envy at the ladies’ bouquets of roses! To me, roses mean LOVE LOVE LOVE to the max!

As I get older, I still do love roses but heart pain when the hubs give me roses on Valentine’s Day! I’ll like to buy myself roses too as an expression of how much I love myself!

Do you know that the YL Rose is not distilled from the regular roses we see at the florist? The breed is called Rosa Damascena and it looks like the photo below!

I actually can’t bear to open my Rose bottle but Jon taught me to use and enjoy! He’s also very generous. Wherever he goes, he shares his Rose and you can see the happiness and glow on people’s faces.

rose-in-jon-hand

Here’s some beautiful suggestions for a beautiful oil from Jon and I. Enjoy!

  1. Add 1 to 2 drops to a glass bottle then add witch hazel (optional) and distilled water. This makes a very lovely facial spritzer and it’s what we have made for our teams for last year’s Christmas. ❤❤
  2. Rose can uplift your emotions and spirit AND it can keep you warm in cold places.
  3. Diffuse Rose in a room. You will find the smell linger LONG AFTER the diffusing finishes.
  4. Because it clocks at a whopping 320 Mhz, Rose brings harmony and balance to ALL CELLS and raise your vibrations. When one feels sad or upset, it can feel sluggish and heavy. Use Rose!
  5. Applying Rose at the back of both your knees create a fragrance bubble around you.
  6. Take a wine decanter (those wide bottom flasks preferably, otherwise regular glass bottles are ok) then add 3 drops rose and top up with water. Let it sit overnight. Then drink!
  7. When your bottle is half empty, top up with more water but skip Rose. You can do this 3 times and the water will still taste and smell very rosy!
  8. Cranky child? Dab a little rose on him. We found that it calms Sol very quickly and reduces his crying bouts too. ‪#‎sibehawesome
  9. Men! U want some *ahem* today? Try massaging your love with a little Rose and carrier oil! *winks*

Cool Azul Pain Relief Cream

Close your eyes and visualize this with me~

An elephant dashing like Usain Bolt (as if…) and suddenly does an emergency brake like F1-Lewis Hamilton?

That’s as close as I can describe on a running incident 2 months back while I was doing my jogging regime (sounds so pro haha). Because another runner did an illegal right turn into my path, I had to do a sudden stamping stop, creating a biscuit cracking sound which echoed so loudly…. Ouch~!

Stabs of sharp pain and weakened left knee kept me company for the past 2 months and the situation worsen when my little (ok not so little) Juju wants me to carry her all the time.

I did Raindrop, Panaway and Deep Relief on it, though my knee felt much better, nothing really beats this Cool Azul Pain Relief Cream. It gives a cool minty sensation that feels really comfortable 🙂

Stabbing pain – No more.

Weaken Knee – Slightly.

Rotating performance increased.

Pain Overall – Reduced by 2/3 of what I felt before.

That’s the result with only 3-4 application in one day.

-Jon

Transformation

I remembered using Transformation back in 2013 when I intended to leave my job and wanted oh so badly to create an income out of my Young Living business QUICKLY. I would apply apply apply everyday on the back of my neck and on my forehead and rims of ears and praying for a miracle. I was leaving a 5 digit monthly paycheck and needed to have at least $3000 to put food on the table and pay the bills. Well I got what I want and then…

I stopped using. For the next 2 years.

2015 for me was a year of resistance to change. It was mostly about clinging on to old habits that have served me in the past but probably not so in the present.  Funny though, I used to love the smell of Transformation. The Peppermint in it perks me up and I felt revitalised by this blend. It was APPLY THIS and GO OUT AND CONQUER THE WORLD!

Then I tried using it once in awhile in 2015 and it didn’t smell too good to me. It was too sweet, to the point of nauseating and I brushed it aside, thinking that it could be my hormones. Or my nose. Or something… like my resistance to embrace changes. ‪#‎truestory

Well… I am back in using it daily again. And my experience has been… if you want something badly and you are willing to go through CHANGES in yourself, SHIFTS in your thinking, then USE THIS! I was using it for about a week and have experience SIGNIFICANT CHANGES in my life. Like *coughs* being vocal about my needs and *coughs* working on life balance.

Here’s what the Reference Guide for Essential Oils say:

“Many of the oils in this blend are powerfully energizing and stimulating to the conscious mind, allowing for the support necessary to make changes, especially mental and emotional changes.

When diffused or worn as a perfume, this blend of oils may help stimulate one’s mind and strengthen one’s resolve when dealing with difficult decisions, especially when related to a change in attitude or a change in one’s belief system.”

PS: A shout out to all parents who are feeling jittery over your kids’ first day of school at Primary One! Here’s my wishes that all kids love their schools and make many awesome friends!

NingXia Zyng Review I

ME, I have to confess, I am a sugar slave. I love food and drinks that is loaded with sugar.

Hot, hot weather,

Sun so bright,

Can’t wait to grabber,

Cold, cold Sprite~!

Eat spicy left,

Eat spicy right,

Mouth on fire,

Let’s drink Sprite~!

Kids make a mess,

Dad cleans at night,

Needed a rest.

Here comes my Sprite~!

This has been going on for quite awhile with my cravings for carbonated sugary drinks. Whenever I have nothing to do at hand, I felt like just grabbing a bottle of Sprite and drink. So does when I am too busy with my kids or work, I wanted to grab that Sprite too. I do think that I have reached a certain level of addiction towards it and I do know that it is not good for my health.

Knowing is one thing, but shifting away from these sugary drinks is another. It almost became like an automatic reactions to everything. Thirsty? Sprite! Tired? Sprite! Stress? No problem~! Sprite! This is a problem.

One day, my dear wife ordered 2 boxes of items, which I was clueless about until I collected them from one of our friend.

It was NingXia Zyng.

When I first tried Zyng, I took a big gulp like how I always drink my beloved carbonated sugary drink. The initial feelings I got when I poured Zyng into my mouth, was of the same sizzling, bubbly Sprite! However the taste that soon followed wasn’t really to my liking. There was a slight tinge of bitterness and I disliked the after taste.

We had like 24 cans of Zyng and I was tell my wife good luck to her as I am not going to drink anymore of it.

Weird things always happen late at night. I was having my me-time late at night playing some online games after the kids have sign-out for the night. I was tired (around 1am) but I wasn’t going to go down without a fight because my me-time is precious!

Immediately I wanted to grab a Sprite but there wasn’t any at home, so I was like “Oh well…. There’s Zyng~”

One can of Zyng is all it takes. I felt quite refreshing after drinking it and by the time I felt tired…. It was almost 6am! So I quickly rush to bed and try to grab some sleep before the kids and my awesome wife wakes up!

“Hey, its not that bad!” I thought to myself.

So I tried one more, and that leads to another, and another….

In the end, I just wanted to say that for those of you who have crazy cravings towards carbonated sugary drinks. You might want to give NingXia Zyng a shot. Zyng does satisfy my cravings for Sprite and it is definitely a healthier choice.

-Jon

Oils For Diaper Changes

Here’s a quick snap of what I use during diaper changes to support my 6 month old baby’s digestion especially now he’s trying solids (we are doing Baby Led Weaning!). So this helps Sol poop easier especially when there’s chunks of food passing thru his tummy. 🙂

I do a swipe of the top of the bottles for both on his tummy before dressing him up quickly in diapers.

Jon’s Love

I am going to write about this special oil that I love very much.

Some interesting facts about this particular love of mine.

  • One drop of this oil = 60 of its flower!
  • 15 ml of this oil = 65 pounds of its petals! (around 29kgs!)
  • 5 ml bottle (about 80 drops) of this oil = 4800 of its flower

This oil supports healthy skin and it is also nourishing to dry skin. The aroma of this oil uplifts and stimulates our minds, and at the same time opens the heart chakra.

By now, I think most of you would have known that the oil I am talking about is none other than Rose EO.

This is one of the most expensive oil in our Young Living range of oils, however, I personally felt that this oil isn’t really just about oil.

Here’s why:

  1. The sheer amount of roses needed just to produce it. Just for the ladies. Can you imagine your hubby / boyfriend bringing you a gigantic bouquet of 4800 roses?
  2. Not commonly used. How often do you have people (those who are oil users) around you apply Rose on themselves? Most people would probably keep this extremely precious oil in safe keeping (including me)!
  3. There is something else in the bottle! This is the point I really wanted to talk about. Beside being one of the most expensive oil that always bring non and new oilers jaw to drop when hearing the price, there is something else about this oil. Something I have consistently experienced when i use Rose EO. By just opening the Rose EO bottle, people around you will start looking curiously for the source, ESPECIALLY those veteran oil users! This is one phenomenon I have seen that no other oils has over people.

The real game changer is when I share my Rose EO with my families, my friends, people whom have attended my class/workshop and even strangers.

You might think that “WHAT? Give it to strangers?? I don’t even bear to use it myself!”

What do I get in return?

The reward is priceless. The smiles, the joy, the excitement somehow just seems to flow endlessly out from the folks receiving just one drop of it. With all that warmth, happiness and love all around, how can one not be uplifted and feel truly HAPPY?

I know I did. Maybe you should try it too.

– Jon
