Summer Handbook - How to Get a Beach Body

Summer Handbook - How to Get a Beach Body

Hello SUMMER!! Warm weather, sunshine-filled days and vacations (or staycations!) are on the agenda, and we are ready for it all -- with our favorite oils and Young Living products in tow! Here are some of our best tips, tricks, recipes and DIYS for enjoying the summer months to the fullest.

Two simple steps for getting that beach body:
1. Have a body.
2. Go to the beach.
Of course, it wouldn't hurt if our skin was smooth & glowing too, right?! A few of our favorite summer body DIYS!

Margarita Body Scrub via Hello Glow

  • 1/2 cup salt- You can use regular salt, kosher salt or leftover margarita salt.
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons tequila
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • A few drops of Lime EO 
    • Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl until you have a paste. Add more olive oil if needed. Then scrub away in the shower. One note of caution – use the scrub before you shave, not after, because it might burn. The tequila and lime juice are natural antiseptics, the salt exfoliates any dead skin, and the olive oil adds lots of moisture! 

Grapefruit Body Smoothing Oil

  • Cel-Lite Magic Massage Oil
  • Grapefruit Essential Oil
    • In your hands, mix together one pump of Cel-Lite Magic + one drop of Grapefruit. Massage into legs and arms in a circular motion. Continue on any areas that need a little extra smoothing & get your beauty sleep! Be sure to shower before going out in the sun!  

DIY Vitamin C Facial Toner

Vitamin C and Geranium are a dynamic duo when it comes to brightening the skin. Try out this simple toner as we head into the summer!
  • 2 oz glass dropper bottle
  • 1&1/2 tsp organic vitamin c powder
  • 5 drops Geranium essential oil
  • 3 Tbsp distilled water

This rich and spicy oil is designed to help us release fears associated with a poverty mindset. Even when we don't realize it, we have skills, abilities, tools, opportunities, contacts, teachers, and wisdom right at our fingertips. This oil (and intentional practices!) can help us to realize this fact and step into those things in front of us! 

  • Has a warm, spicy aroma that is stimulating and inspiring 
  • Can help enhance the mindset of prosperity and plentitude
  • Is a wonderful addition to your daily gratitude practice. Pair this oil blend with a daily gratitude journal.
  • Pairs well with Harmony, Forgiveness, Joy, Tangerine, Stress Away, Valor and White Angelica essential oils
  • A great addition to the Feelings Collection kit.
Abundance essential oil blend features Orange, Frankincense, Patchouli, Clove, Ginger, Myrrh, Cinnamon Bark, and Black Spruce essential oils, which were used by ancient cultures to attract prosperity and magnify joy and peace. Each oil in this blend was chosen for its unique properties!

  • Orange: high in limonene, which is great for the immune system; uplifting and encouraging to the mind and spirit
  • Frankincense: carries historical and biblical significance as a grounding and uplifting aroma
  • Patchouli: grounding and helps connect to the inner self
  • Myrrh: stimulates the limbic system, the seat of memory; a wonderful oil to use to work on stored emotional trauma or negative thoughts
  • Black Spruce: grounding and relaxing and helps to clear the mind.
It is time for us to wake up to the walls we are building between us and freedom because we insist that there is never enough time, money, or us. We choose. We have the same 24 hours anyone else has, our own unique set of gifts that no one else has, and one life to live. Let's not waste a single moment in fear and a spirit of lack.

We can have this spirit of not having enough in our health and wellness as well as in our finances. Always believing that it's not worth it to invest in our health, that we'll never have enough energy, and that it's impossible for us to be "whole" in our health. We are believing falsehoods. We were created for wholeness and our bodies were designed for healing.

As you apply this oil, speak truth over yourself such as:
"I lack nothing.
""I have everything I need."
"I am enough."

Citrus aurantium dulcis (Orange) peel oil, Boswellia carterii (Frankincense) oil, Pogostemon cablin (Patchouli) oil, Eugenia caryophyllus (Clove) bud oil, Zingiber officinale (Ginger) root oil, Commiphora myrrha (Myrrh) oil, Cinnamomum zeylanicum (Cinnamon) bark oil, Picea mariana (Black spruce) leaf oil

*Constituents are naturally occurring compounds in plants (and therefore essential oils) that give them specific health-supporting properties
Alpha pinene: a powerful antioxidant, some studies have shown alpha-pinene to support the body through inflammation and to help calm the mind
Bornyl acetate: may help calm and focus the mind

  • Diffuse as you work, read, and contact others.
  • Dab onto letters, packages, and envelopes you are sending out to business contacts.
  • Apply to your wrists and over your heart as you pray over your team, your time, and your future in this business.
  • Put on the edges of your calendar and planner so that every time you are thinking of your time commitments, you are shifting to a viewpoint of abundance and choice.
  • Drop on a diffuser bracelet in your purse or wallet and stop thinking of money as something in short supply. Money will ALWAYS be there and there will be ways to attain it. TIME? That's the one you guard. Use your time to find ways to pursue freedom and residual income where your money works FOR YOU.

What Are Essential Oils?


What are essential oils? In simple terms, essential oils are compounds extracted from plants. They are distilled from a plant’s seeds, flowers, bark, roots, leaves, stems, rinds, fruit and resin. As an example, in citrus fruits, essential oils are found inside the peel.

Within the plants they’re extracted from, essential oils create that plant’s signature scent along with other benefits. Plants depend on their oils to attract pollinating insects and repel predators. Once extracted, essential oils will often have a stronger scent than the plants they come from with more concentrated effects.

To enjoy the benefits of essential oils, you can use them topically (usually diluted with a carrier oil), aromatically (think diffusing), or internally (vitality line). Be sure to always check individual labels for instructions on how to use and apply an essential oil. Ask your doctor if you’re not sure a particular oil is right for you.

But be warned...not all oils are created equal! So how do you know which oils are right for you?  First, you want to find a company you can trust. But how do you do that?  Here's a few tips.  

Read the label 
A quality essential oil company should be upfront and transparent about their products. The plant's name (look for the Latin name) should be listed on the label. Look for any additions or synthetics that might dilute the oil's purity.

Research the company
Find a company with a reputable and established name.

Look for dark glass containers
Dark-tinted glass protects the quality of the oil and will not degrade over time unlike plastic bottles. You want a company who will make sure their product arrives in the best condition.

Compare prices
You've heard the phrase "you get what you pay for"?  Well, that is definitely the truth when it comes to essential oils.  Prices for individual oils will vary depending on harvesting and how much raw plant material is needed to produce each drop of oil.  It takes 22 pounds of rose petals to produce one 5 ml bottle of Rose essential oil.  That definitely makes me question the purity of that $7 bottle of oil at the grocery store.

Hopefully these tips will help you find an essential oil company you can trust and partner with on your journey to wellness.
