Lack of energy? Keep yawning after lunch?

Lack of energy? Keep yawning after lunch?

Cutting out caffeine seems quite impossible nowadays with our hectic lifestyle but I have found a few ways to stay alert and energetic especially in the afternoons! After having used Young Living's quality products for the last few years, I've found quite a few to be working super well for me.  Here are some of my recommendations:

1.  Ningxia Red (NXR)
This is touted as one of the most potent super-antioxidant drink that the market has right now. 

"We need a balancing effort of MANY different antioxidants for them to really be beneficial to our health. Ningxia Red offers a wide variety of antioxidants and phytonutrients, which is what makes it different than many other antioxidant drinks on the market (it also contains essential oil which is another added difference)."
"Ningxia Red contains the puree from the Ningxia wolfberry, a berry harvested in Northern China high in fiber and protein (it’s protein content is approximately 13%). The Wolfberry also contains all the essential amino acids, is high in antioxidants, and is the HIGHEST whole food source of potassium. Young Living is also unique in that we use the ENTIRE berry—the seeds, juice, peel, and fruit—to ensure that we offer a product that contains an optimal blend of ALL of it’s amazing nutrients."


Every morning before breakfast or lunch, I will take a shot (30ml) of NXR. I find this has helped me to stay alert and ready to tackle the different tasks I have set for myself to do, being a work-from-home-mom who also teaches English enrichment classes part-time. With a hectic lifestyle like many, it's important for me to ensure that the supplements that I choose for my family can deliver the results. 

2. Ningxia Nitro
This is a must-have in my handbag on days that are really hectic or require extra energy after a few late nights. It contains "100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils with naturally powerful ingredients to lift mental clarity and focus while also providing a surge of energy when needed." 
I've experienced the clarity I needed for hours after just taking one small tube of it! Simply love how effective this is!
Ningxia Nitro contains "a proprietary blend of pure black pepper, nutmeg, vanilla, chocolate, yerba mate, spearmint, and peppermint essential oils. Combined with these therapeutic-grade essential oils, Bioenergy Ribose® improves physical performance, speeds up recovery, and increases overall energy reserves. Other supportive ingredients, such as B vitamins, green tea extract, choline, and Korean ginseng, are added to sharpen the mind and invigorate the senses."

One more tip to add especially for some of us with dark eye shadows due to late nights to meet deadlines or simply sleep deprived. Cut a piece of facial cotton wool into 2 halves and soak them with a few drops of Ningxia Nitro. Place each piece below the eye. Do this for a couple of times a week to lighten the dark circles. Let me know if this works for you!
Another benefit of drinking this is that you'll get fewer mosquito bites as Ningxia Nitro is full of B vitamins known to repel mosquitoes! What a cool fact, isn't it?

3. Peppermint Essential Oil
Yes, the powerful invigorating scent of the peppermint essential oil is enough to keep me alert for the next half an hour to an hour! I do it by simply applying one to two drops over my neck and shoulders. This helps to relief tension due to work stress or tiredness. Then I will also cup my hands over my nose to inhale deeply a few times to let the menthol vapour goes directly into my limbic system to help improve memory and concentration.  Easy and effective!

With the vitality range, peppermint essential oil can now be added into your cup of water to ease the occasional indigestion that can cause discomfort and fatigue. I like to add a drop into my glass bottle of water to freshen my breath and enjoy my not-so-plain water throughout the day!


4.  En-R-Gee Essential Oil Blend
Last, but not least, is what I would term as a great ALL-IN-ONE energy booster! I like it that it's been specially formulated using the following essential oils with energising properties:
  • rosemary - reduces mental fatigue and mild anxiety
  • juniper - clean, penetrating scent that has a calming effect on mind, body and spirit
  • lemongrass - has an uplifting scent and supports the circulatory system
  • nutmeg - soothing, stimulating and energizing
  • Idaho balsam fir - grounding and empowering. Energizes the mind while relaxes the body
  • clove - mental stimulant yet soothing
  • black pepper - comforting yet soothing

This blend can be used anytime of the day. You can diffuse or apply topically .  Here are 5 suggestions for the following:
1.  Study - help your children stay focused during exam preparation time.
2. Work - extra boost at 3pm to get you through the last few hours in the office without adding caffeine
3.  Exercise - the extra motivation to complete your exercise routine
4. Parenting - it's tough when you lack the energy to keep up with the demands whether you've just become a new parent or handling your teens' angst. This helps lots!
5. Intimacy - sometimes all you want is a good night's sleep when all energy has been zapped up during the day. However, married life takes effort and energy to keep the love sizzling. Grab hold of this oil and let it help you last the night a bit longer with some fun cuddling and enjoying intimate moments with your spouse.

 Easing the monthly cramps!

Easing the monthly cramps!

Menstrual cramps are usually  unavoidable for all women, except for the fortunate few. I've experienced the pain just before the onset and into the first 2 days of the period. Not forgetting the embarrassment when I forgot to bring a spare sanitary napkin in my bag or the stain on my pants or skirt during the heavy flow. Urgghh...

So I am absolutely delighted to note that I no longer have to suffer from the painful cramps! Even the duration is marvellously shorter each month! From a duration of 5 to 6 days to just 4!

 Is there a magic pill? No, I don't take any medication. I am aware of the many side-effects of modern medicines for quick fixes only to end up with other ailments. No, thank you.  I stay away also because I am allergic to pain-killers. I think I almost died of suffocation when I first took two Aspirin tablets for a mild headache.  My eyes swelled up like the eyes of a goldfish. I sounded funny and I was so terrified! I didn't know that my air passage in my throat was a bit constricted as well.

Anyway, back to what  natural way I use to combat the pain and manage the flow. I just apply PPP from Young Living onto my inner arms and ankles every night. Ya, I did forget now and then when I first tried to implement it  as my nightly regime. Right now after about 4 months, it's like a routine. I place the bottle of PPP beside my bed and I will apply it right before I go to bed. If I don't, I feel like something is missing as the scent is quite soothing to ease me quickly into dreamland. Other times, it made me feel friskier though. Haha...better side effects as this has certainly  boosted my libido!


Progessence Phyto-Plus, or PPP for short, contains pure frankincense, bergamot and peppermint essential oils and is infused with wild yam extracts to help balance our hormones. It has been especially formulated by D. Gary Young, ND, and Dan Purser, MD. It can be easily absorbed by the skin. 

The other benefits of this blend  includes better sleep,  reduced mood swings,  increased bone density and a more positive outlook! You simply have  to give this a try! The ladies who had recently taken part in our PPP Challenge are experiencing  good positive changes not only physically, but emotionally as well!
