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.

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*

My Son Eats My Lotion and His Diaper Cream

Recently Sol’s taste buds have quite the adventurous journey. The other day he grabbed the Tender Tush diaper ointment, managed to open it and ate some. Today he unscrewed the the Lavender Body Lotion cap and was happily digging out the lotion and stuffing into his fat little cheeks.

Over these years while I was using the Young Living products for my babies, I’ve heard similar stories. My friend’s kid loves eating the Rose Ointment. Another kiddo drank some Thieves household cleaner. Nothing happened. Not even diarrhea or a tummy ache.

While of course I urged you all to keep your stuff properly and not encourage your kids to eat them, I’m still grateful that Gary Young made all YL toiletries and household products safe. One less thing to worry about!

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?

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?

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!

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.
