Cool Tales of Abundance

So Irene KohJonathan TeoWinnie Lee Fannon and myself were queuing for dinner and it was a long long wait. **hungry + angry = HANGRY**

Me: Eh Jon, let’s manifest that we’ll get a table real soon!

Jon: Ok ok, let’s use Abundance!! *whips it out*

Me: Ok how quick will we get a table???

Jon: 10 mins!

Me: Noooooo, 5!!!

So we the 2 kukus did our voodoo oil ritual. A drop on palm and we slapped it on our necks and hair and inhale…. 5mins5mins5mins5mins….

We were second in line and unlike before where the queue moved so slowly, we got our table within a couple of mins this time. Heh.

PS: A friend had us in stitches yesterday when she shared that she has been diffusing Abundance without her hubs’ knowledge and he’s been winning nice little prizes at the lottery every week. Apparently last week was the consolation prize for the Sat’s 4D.

Abundance. Never leave home without it.

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!

What’s In My Baby Son’s Pouch?

Part One: My Baby Son’s Oil Pouch

Part Two: My Husband’s and My Going Out Oil Pouches

Part Three: My Self Care Oil Pouch

Part Four: My Work Oil Pouch

Part Five: My Family’s + Raindrop Oil Pouch

This is the first of a 5-part series of what’s in my family’s oil pouches done over the Let’s Add Oil FB group with Facebook Live. Link to original video broadcast here!

Tonight, I’m going to talk about what’s in my baby son’s pouch. There are 16 oils but I’m not going to go through all 16 as that will take far too long. Instead I will bring you through the highlights and the rationale behind each of them.

To give a bit of background, my son Sol has just turned 1 in April. I packed this pouch specially for him since birth and it has catered to him until now. So let’s go through it!

If you’ve been following my Periscope, which is another video livestreaming platform, you would have heard me mention the Kidscents Oils. What I love about the Kidscents Oils is that they are already prediluted. They are sold separately and in a set in Young Living USA. I got my set from Young Living USA 2 years ago, and it had 6 oils, but I think they’ve downsized it to just 5 oils.

sol pouch

The 6 oils are SniffleEase, SleepyIze, TummyGize, GeneYus, Bitebuster and Owie. I absolutely love how the names are all so cute! And I like how I don’t need to tell you much about the oils because the names itself already gives you a clue! These oils are great even for adults! If you only have the Kidscents oils with you, and an adult needs it, just use! They are pretty good for adults as well.

My absolute favourite oil from the Kidscents set is SleepyIze. This is an especially very good oil for sleep for my baby. If he is irritable, cranky, rubbing his eyes and pulling his ears, this helps him to get to sleep a lot quicker. It’s great how the Kidscents oils are all prediluted, so if you’re a lazy mother like me who don’t like to dilute, try the Kidscents set! You can just take a drop or 2 and directly apply on your child.

My next favourite oil is SniffleEase. Again I don’t need to tell you what it’s for, because you can tell from the name itself. It supports the respiratory system and I like it whenever I need to support his lungs and breathing.

Let’s see, TummyGize. When Sol was a newborn, I used TummyGize and DiGize interchangeably. I find TummyGize a lot gentler and convenient since I don’t have to dilute it. I take a swipe or half a drop from the bottle and apply it directly on his belly button.

Okay how do you do half a drop? Just take out one drop on your palm, swipe and rub with a finger and use that to apply on a newborn’s belly button. Then rub the rest of the oil on the soles.

The next oils are Owie and Bite Buster. I think the reason why Young Living cut out Bite Buster was because they were so similar in terms of the effect. For Sol, now that he is learning to walk, he stumbles and falls a lot, instead of Lavender, I use Owie to support his skin health and it’s been working pretty well.

Okay GeneYus is an oil you can use to support the brain. If you’re like, “Oh why isn’t my kid talking so quickly. Oh, I just want him to be a little bit quicker in his personal development” You can try applying GeneYus on him. To be really honest, I don’t really use GeneYus. Sometimes I do just for fun. You can apply it on his head, the forehead, the rims of the ears, the back of the head. It’s pretty awesome for school-going kids also, if you want them to be more focused, extra attentive, or perhaps getting that A for exams, this could be a good oil to support the brain as well.

That’s all for the Kidscents set!

Now I will go to the more interesting oils that I have in his baby pouch like Christmas Spirit. If you look at the ingredients in Christmas Spirit, the oils mainly fall into 2 categories: respiratory and immunity oils. I like how Christmas Spirit is a one-stone-kill-two-birds oil. If I find that my son needs support in both immunity and respiratory systems, this is what I would use.However, as it has Clove, I am more cautious and will only apply it on his soles, the way I do with Thieves.

I also have Roman Chamomile. If your child or baby is sensitive to seasonal situations or even to temperature changes in the air, you can try Roman Chamomile. It is a great oil for soothing a cranky kid and also great for teething, you can apply on the jawline or straight on the gums if you’re comfortable with that.

You can also use this oil to support the skin. For example, one drop of Roman Chamomile to V6 makes a soothing massage oil for your infant. There are actually 2 kinds of Chamomiles, Roman Chamomile and German Chamomile, which I used to get really confused over. Roman Chamomile is like the regular pale yellow oil, but German Chamomile is very very bright cobalt, sapphire blue oil. German Chamomile is very supportive of the skin while I prefer Roman Chamomile for calming and soothing properties.

I have your regular popular oils like Lavender, which is a good oil for all babies. Great for calming cranky kids and to help them get a good night’s rest, really everything. You can add it to a massage oil as well.

Next is Gentle Baby. I know most of us only have this in 5ml but I have the 15ml! This is a great oil for both mothers and children. Recently, we had this DIY class where we learnt to make DIY products with the Young Living oils and other raw materials. I learnt that using Gentle Baby in your babies’ toiletries is very luxurious! I tried it 2 days ago, I used boiled water, castile soap and 18 drops of Gentle Baby and it was really lovely and nice for skin.

For mothers who have just given birth, use this, diluted with a carrier oil and apply it over your skin. It helps to minimize stretch marks and also for pregnant ladies to prevent stretch marks. It’s also a good oil for bonding when you’re cuddling your child!

Another oil is Peace and Calming, haha I have it in 15 ml as well. Currently it’s only available in 5ml bottles because Young Living’s Blue Tansy had a bad harvest. Tests ran on the oil did not meet Young Living’s standards, so Young Living broke it up into 5ml bottles instead, so that you can enjoy the same oil in smaller bottles to uphold quality standards.

They also came up with a new formulation, Peace and Calming II which has the same properties. Young Living let an oil go out of stock, break it down to smaller bottles or even reformulate a new one just to ensure that you will not get an inferior product.

Another oil that might be new to you is Lemon Myrtle. You probably know Myrtle in Singapore, so what’s Lemon Myrtle? It’s an oil that is very supportive of the immune system, so I’ve used it to support Sol’s immunity. For immunity, I rotate between Frankincense, Lemon Myrtle, Thieves and Christmas Spirit. I like Lemon Myrtle for both immunity and respiratory systems, it is also very gentle, and it smells very much like Lemon. I got it from Young Living USA.

Okay, Eucalyptus Radiata, another very popular oil for young children and babies. Mine comes with a rollerball because I have it already prediluted. As you can see, it’s quite an old bottle, it has like 30 drops of Eucalyptus Radiata and I topped up the rest of the 15ml bottle with V6 oil, and I just roll on my son.

In Young Living, there are 3 kinds of Eucalyptus. There is Eu. Blue, Eu Radiata and from Young Living USA, there is Eu. Globulus. I’ve written about the differences between them, but just remember this. All three are great for supporting respiratory health, as for the secondary uses, remember for Eu. Radiata, for radiant hair and skin. For Eu. Blue, imagine feeling very blue, this oil is supportive of your emotions, helping to uplift you from the funk. Eu. Globulus, think of the globe and humans, it is very supportive of the bones and muscles in the human body. That’s the way how I differentiate the 3 oils.

The very last oil is Joy. This is very interesting because it’s not really related to my baby, it’s for myself. I hand express breastmilk for Sol, so I need to have a letdown, I use a combination of Joy and Lavender. Lavender to relax me and Joy to trigger letdown. What you can do is that you can apply either or both oils on your breast or just over the nipples, then rub the excess in your palms and inhale, just to have you relax and trigger the letdown when you’re pumping or hand expressing.

 

QNA

How old onwards, can kids use these oils?

If you look at the bottle labels, it actually tells you from age 2 onwards, but I’ve personally used the oils on my son since he was a newborn. So I would leave it to your comfort level as to when you want to start using the oils for your children. Generally, as a rule of thumb, I look at the weight of the child instead of the age. Newborns are usually around 2-3kg, so I would do less than a drop on their soles, or heavily diluted on wherever I need to apply like over the tummy for colic or to support digestion, on the chest for respiratory system support.

Can these oils be directly applied on newborn babies or still require further diluting even though they are prediluted?

I actually use the Kidscents oils straight from the bottle, but what I do is that, I use very little of it. So for prediluted oils like these, I just swipe the top of the bottle to get a little oil and use that.

Does Peace and Calming II smell the same as Peace and Calming?

Uhm no, when you first smell Peace and Calming II, you will find that it smells of Middle Eastern spices, but at the end note, it smells really like Peace and Calming.

Is Lemon Myrtle the same as Melissa?

Nope, it’s different! Melissa is known as Lemon Balm, they smell really similar as they have overtones of Lemon. In terms of properties, they both support immune system but personally I find Melissa a lot more powerful than that, which is why it has a higher price tag too. I do use both interchangeable, though I use Melissa more during critical cases.

Can Eu. Radiata be used on a less than 2 years old baby?

Yes, my baby is now only 1 and I’ve been using it on him. What I do is that, for babies that are rather young, I dilute more. For Sol, since he was a newborn, I’ve done about 80-85% dilution til now.

I’ve read that Eu. Radiata and Eu. Blue are the safest for young babies, is that true? I always reach out for those when they cough.

If you look at the Gentle Babies book by Debra Raybern who is a pediatrician who is also using the Young Living oils, she advocates Eu. Radiata. I generally don’t differentiate between all 3, I do use them interchangeable but I know that some parents are concerned about Eucalyptus. So if you ask me to pick, I would pick Eu. Radiata as the gentlest option for babies and young kids.

I’m using Valor, Peace and Calming, Lavender and Roman Chamomile to calm down my cranky 15months old every night, is there anything I can cut down?

What you can try to do, if you don’t mind having a few restless nights, is to try using just one oil first and see how it works. Then if that oil doesn’t give you the results that you desire, then you switch to the next oil a couple of hours later, or even the next night. That’s how you can see what oils really work well for your child. The other oil you can try is White Angelica, especially if you think that the child is restless because of some kind of stuff going on at night, White Angelica could be very helpful as well.

Do I have to rotate the oils every three months?

Erm, there isn’t any hard or fast oils on rotating of oils, my selection of oils tend to be quite random, so I just make it a point to use different oils every now and then. I don’t really say like okay 3 months later, I will switch, it is really about my desire to try out as many oils as possible so that if one oil goes out of stock, like how Eu. Radiata is out of stock now, I will always have other options to fall on. That’s the way how I oil my kids with the rationale of experimenting.

So, is Gentle Baby or Peace and Calming better? Can I mix them to diffuse?

You should not be mixing both to diffuse. If you want to diffuse both Gentle Baby and Peace and Calming, you will have to run 2 different diffusers. One of the reasons is because, Gentle Baby and Peace and Calming are 2 different blends. If you look at the ingredients right, each of them have at least 5 oils, so if you mix them together, you will have like 10 different oils in the diffuser. It’s a little too much and I find that I will prefer to split into 2 diffusers or rotate them for diffusing.

What oils are good for a child that has sleep terror? They cry or scream in their sleep.

You can try Dream Catcher, that’s a good oil if you find that your kids have night terrors. You can also try White Angelica to soothe the terrors.

What Is In My June Essential Rewards Order?

This is a transcript of the video done on the Let’s Add Oil FB group with Facebook Live on the 4th of June. Original video link here!

I’m going to show you real quickly, what we got for our June Essential Rewards order!

First things first, we have the shampoo. I’ve always loved the Lavender, Peppermint Shampoo because it’s really concentrated. I have dry scalp and also oily hair and in the past when I first started using this, I was not used to the fact that it’s not as sudsy as regular shampoos but overtime, I found that it cleans my hair and scalp pretty well. Nowadays, I love it and my husband is beginning to love it as well. If you are a person with hair loss, this Lavender Peppermint shampoo is a good one to use. If you find that your hair is like my mom’s hair, lots of flyaways, very fine, very hard to style and always needing volume, you may find that the Vanilla Copaiba shampoo would be a good one. Personally I like Lavender Peppermint one because I love how the mint is very refreshing and when I wash my hair, it really does perk me up.

Next one, Deep Relief! I love Deep Relief! If you catch me here, you will see me talk about the different oils that help to support our muscles, bones and joints. Deep Relief is actually a hot favourite for me! I love how when I apply it, it provides a cooling sensation and basically I feel instant relief on my tight shoulders and neck. For some people, they may feel warm instead of cool, so it really varies from person to person. I also like Deep Relief because it’s a roll-on. A bottle can be tricky to use especially on curved surfaces, so a roller is really great for that! I usually roll some on, then rub it in. This is an oil that I used extensively, even during my pregnancy because with prolonged nursing, I found Deep Relief very soothing for my tight, tight muscles and my stiff neck.

Another thing is that, you don’t have to throw away the Deep Relief container. When you travel, you can put your oil bottles or supplements like Sulfurzyme, Inner Defence etc inside here, if you don’t want to bring your glass bottles along. You can toss it out at the end of your trip, or you can bring it back to reuse, so it’s really travel friendly, I hope that’s a really good tip to reuse the tube.

Next, I have Myrtle, a respiratory oil. I love it because I have young children in the house, and it’s really gentle for babies and toddlers. I use it on their chests, backs, back of the necks and the soles of their feet as well.

Next up, Endoflex. Okay, both Endoflex and Myrtle actually support the thyroid, which is why I got them both this month. Endoflex is specially blended to support the thyroid and Myrtle does it pretty well too. We are actually working with a dear friend of ours who actually has some kind of an imbalance in her thyroid, so we are getting her off commercial cleaning products like bath gels and shampoos and replacing them with non-toxic ones, as well as getting her some oils. You can apply Endoflex along your jawline, down the sides of your neck and also all the way down to the area under your armpits. This is because you want to target the thyroid and also the lymphatic system.

Next oil is Orange, I usually have Orange in my ER order as I frequently take it in my drinking water. What I do is to add 2-3 drops in a glass or ceramic cup, or about 10 drops in a litre of water, it really depends on your preference, you can even go up to 20-25 drops in a litre of water. Just remember to shake it before drinking, so you don’t get all the orange oil at the top of the water.

My last oil is actually Balsam Fir. I just finished using Balsam Fir on my children to support their respiratory system and this is actually an excellent oil to have. So for moms out there who are worried about using Eucalyptus or Peppermint being hazardous for children, well, it actually isn’t, but you can use gentler oils like Balsam Fir and Myrtle for kids. Balsam Fir helps to strengthen the lungs, and with other big trees like Fir and Spruce, it is very supportive of both the muscles and lungs. Balsam Fir is an oil that can only be harvested and distilled during the winter time, so if you look at the price tag, it’s a little higher than the rest of the oils and as it takes a lot of effort to harvest and distill. The trees are huge and require heavy machinery to cut down, so there is a lot of effort, blood, sweat and tears to harvest it.

Next up, I have NingXia Red! Okay, for all those of you who are actually curious about the taste between the old formula and the new formula, I actually have both formula with me first now. I actually bought my USA NingXia Red in May, before the launch in Singapore. The Singapore one actually has a different sticker label on it because of the change of ingredients.

Before this video, Jonathan, Juvia and myself tried both NingXia Reds just to see if we could detect the slight variances in the taste. Both versions actually look the same in terms of the colour. In terms of taste, the Singapore version tastes a little thinner and a little more sour. What they did was to reduce the amount of grapeseed extract to meet the local regulations in terms of minimum requirement of grapeseed extract and they added more tart cherry, so it’s a little more sour. It is also thinner in texture, so if you have kids who are very sensitive to texture, I would say that the new formulation would work better for them. My child, Juvia is very sensitive to texture. If her porridge is too mushy, she doesn’t take that, it has to be a specific texture. So when I tested the new NingXia Red on her just now, thankfully she could take it. So if your kids are very fussy about the taste and texture of drinks, with the new NingXia Red, I don’t think you will have a problem with that.

In terms of the overall health effects, I am pretty sure it will be the same, given that Young Living has taken over 2 years to get the new NingXia Red up on the shelves. When I was sitting in for the past few management meetings regarding the NingXia Red’s progress, one of the reasons why it took so long was that, firstly, they had to make sure that the new NingXia Red formulation had the same high level amounts of antioxidants as the old NingXia Red. Secondly they had to make sure that the new NingXia Red passes the stability test. What this means is that when you have a bottled drink like this, you want to make sure that because it has a minimum amount of preservatives inside such that by the time it reaches Singapore shores from the USA, it is not spoilt, you can actually drink it and it’s still chock full of nutrients and antioxidants. That’s why they took such a long while to actually come out with the new formulation of NingXia Red for Singapore.

QNA

Essential oils tend to float on the top of water, despite me stirring and adding honey. Any other tips?

What you can do is that, you can add the essential oil first before adding the water, then you can shake it, or in this case, stir it before drinking. If you’re drinking citrus oils in water and find that it’s burning your lips, what you can do is to use a metal straw as well. Where can you get metal straws? Sometimes Starbucks sells it, I got mine from Life Science Publishers at Suntec, so that’s a good option for you. You can get straight metal straws or slightly bent ones for easy sipping.

What Is In My May Essential Rewards Order?

This is a transcript of the video done on the Let’s Add Oil FB group with Facebook Live on the 19th of May. Original video link here!

I actually got this idea of showing you all what’s in my ER order from some of the USA Young Living leaders and I thought that it was really cool! You get to see what’s exactly in my order and I can even demonstrate to you how I use the product!

As you guys know, in Singapore, we actually have the Father’s Day Catalogue to celebrate Father’s Day in June, so what I got 2 sets of Ningxia Nitro and Wolfberry Crisps. Whenever you get a box of Nitro, you get 14 tubes and I was actually dying from not having any more Nitro left for the end of April because it went out of stock then, and remained out of stock for the first 2 weeks of May as well. I just felt so tired in those 2 weeks and I was so anxious for stock to come back. When it came back, Young Living packaged it with the Wolfberry Crisp bars so I thought since I like the Wolfberry Crisp bars, I thought I would just get 2 sets of it and be energised and full at the same time.

I really love Nitro in the morning when I’m really tired, when I don’t have a restful night’s sleep and I am really groggy and tired when I wake up. If I were to take coffee, the smell perks me up and I feel okay after drinking it. But after a while, I kinda feel that my energy is very muddy, more like a sugar overload. After taking Nitro, I just feel like I had 8 hours of really good sleep!

Or if I have had a long day taking care of the kids and housework, or an all-nighter with business, I will take 2 tubes of Nitro, probably 1 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon when my energy dips again. My blood sugar levels is sometimes a bit shaky, I know that if I take bread in the morning, my blood sugar levels will crash around lunch. When that happens, I will feel nauseous, and I will be temperamental as well. I call myself HANGRY, which is hungry plus angry. But when I take Nitro, I don’t get that, so I love Nitro for helping me to maintain healthy levels of blood sugar.

Okay, Wolfberry Crisp Bar. You actually have 6 bars in the box! If you are rushing for work and you don’t have time for proper meals, take one of this, it’s actually very filling! In Singapore, Young Living actually has 2 kinds of bars, this wolfberry one and the Slique Fruits and Nuts bar. I alternate between the two. If I want something really filling, I take this wolfberry one, if I want something more loaded with protein, I take the Slique bar instead. If you’re looking at maintaining healthy weight levels or you find that you want to skip off that sinful chicken rice, chicken curry or pasta, this could be a good healthy option for you!

Alright, what’s inside this Wolfberry Crisp Bar. You can actually see rice cereal with wolfberries and the taste is a little sweet. And for someone like me who is trying to minimise wheat in my diet, this is a good replacement. If you look at my face right now, you can see some spots around my cheeks and chin, and that’s because I’m guilty of taking a bit too much wheat the past few days. There is a really nice pancake stall near the mrt at my house, so I’ve been eating some of that, and I’m guilty of taking some fast food as well. Wheat does me no good, it causes my skin to breakout, so when spots like these turn up, I know that it’s actually time for me to cut back on wheat and eat really cleanly for the next few days. And also to take my Sulfurzyme, lots of water with citrus oils too.

Okay, what else… Good news! The Kidscents Bath Gel came back in stock when I went to the Young Living office like 2 days ago, so I bought it! My kids actually use the Kidscents series, which consists of the shampoo and bath gel. When the shampoo or bath gel runs out, I use the other and just double it up. What I mean is that, when the shampoo runs out, I use the bath gel to wash their hair, or if the bath gel runs out, I use the shampoo for their bodies. If both runs out, then I will use the Aroma Silk series, so that’s like the Lavender Body Wash or like the Morning Glory Body Wash I got from the USA. So that’s one of the items in my Essential Rewards order for this month.

I’m actually over 12 months on Essential Rewards, so I do earn PV rebates as well, so for every order that is over 100PV, I actually earn 20% back to my account. So with that PV, I actually redeemed a Peppermint, one of my favourite oils that I must have every month, I perspire a lot in this weather where the temperature is like 34-35 degree Celsius, so I use this to cool myself down and I use it to focus at work too. With the generous PV rebates, I do redeem free items practically every month.

may

Oh, in fact, this is my newest USB diffuser. I’ve put Peppermint inside the little bottle and plugged it into my laptop to diffuse so that I’ll be extra alert and mentally focused. The Young Living USB Diffuser is a little different from the one I have here. The Young Living one is the version 1 and this is version 2 from Aroma2go. You will find them claiming that this is more resilient because in version 1, if you put in hot oils or citrus oils, it actually melted the plastic inside. So with version 2, they improved everything, they fortified that inside of the diffuser and they made sure that you can use the hot oils, though you may still want to avoid the thick oils like myrrh, vetiver or any blends that include them, so the oils won’t clog the diffuser. I’ve been using it for quite a while and I like it! I find that it’s not as tricky to use as my version 1. I’m such a person where I just want fuss-free diffusing so I stopped using that pretty quickly. However this version 2 is still going on strong so I do think it’s good to get!

Ah, Nitro Zyng! One of the things that I usually get is Zyng. I manage my family’s accounts, so there’s an account for Jonathan and I, there’s an account for my parents and there’s another account for my mother-in-law. So I manage these 3 accounts every month and I make sure that every family’s needs are fulfilled. My husband is a big fan and drinker of Sprite, he loves his sugary, carbonated drinks so we actually order 24 cans every month because I find that it’s actually more worth it to get 24 cans if you like the taste of it. It’s very good in this hot weather, when you are hot and you feel tired, it’s really hydrating and there’s only 25 calories in it, and it’s not as sweet as Sprite which is good for my husband.

That’s all for today, thanks so much for joining!

 

QNA

I don’t like the taste of Nitro.

If you don’t like the taste of Nitro, you can mix it in Ningxia Red or Zyng to drink. When I first started to take Nitro, I found that it tasted quite strongly of ginseng, which I wasn’t used to at all. But after a while, I loved how it supported my energy levels, so now Nitro is something I must have in my order practically every month.

Uh Oh, Overeating on Staycations

So we just came back from our AWESOME staycation since Ju is having her school holidays. And what better time to share impromptu holiday oily tips? Hehehehe.

Remember when the whole family ate, LIKE REALLY ATE good food? And possibly over-ate? Well that happened to the 4 of us and boy, did we work the toilet good that night.

So if the toilet is smelling a tad funky, do this!

Whip out your trusty Peppermint! Or Lavender / Bergamot / Purification / Thieves / whatever that smells good to you!

Drip a few drops in the toilet bowl after someone did his Number 2. *ahem*

If kiddos are on diapers and have major poop explosion, wrap them up tight, toss them in the bin AND drip Peppermint on toilet paper and toss it in.

SMELL ERADICATED

Lady Sclareol for Self Love

Do you ever have oils that you’ve gotten for some reason or another and BARELY use them?

One of the oils that I hardly use (besides Sacred Mountain ahem) was Lady Sclareol. I’ve heard how seductive, how alluring, how feminine the smell is but for some reason, I never felt that I needed it. And the irony was that I have 2 bottles FREE as one of the Young Living promos!

3 days ago, I chanced upon both bottles and I suddenly thought. “Ok lah ok lah, I better use them up, otherwise waste!”

I diffused 9 drops in my study and didn’t think further about it. But something interesting happened.

If you know me, I’m UBER critical of myself. In one of my video broadcasts for Mother’s Day, I talked about the oil Forgiveness because I felt that it was so important to work on being gentle and loving with myself vs blaming myself for “why didn’t I do that?’ or “it’s my fault that…”.

As I was doing my work, the familiar feeling of being critical with myself came again. But suddenly I shoved the feeling away! A voice inside me said, “Ok that’s enough. You did the best you can with the best intentions you have.”

The 180 degrees change in thought astonished me and for the past 2 days I was wondering what happened that triggered the change. Was there any books I have read, conversations I have with people… and suddenly lightbulb moment! The only new thing I’ve done was diffusing Lady Sclareol.

I checked my mobile app Reference Guide for Essential Oils under Love and there it is… Lady Sclareol. I’ve always thought that oils like Joy and Forgiveness are wondrous for self love and here is another. 🙂

I will be using a lot more of this oil from now on.
