I'm Obsessed with ORAC - Should You Be Too?

I'm Obsessed with ORAC - Should You Be Too?

I admit I am obsessed with ORAC values & with a few YL products that offer plenty of it. One of them which is hands down my FAVE is the Longevity Essential oil blend! The reason being it is a very powerful antioxidant support blend which helps to neutralize free radicals with the help of its super-high ORAC value of 1,500,000 µTE/100g. That is greater than any food or single essential oil that has been recorded! (Wild blueberries have an ORAC value of 9,621, while regular blueberries only have an ORAC of 4,669!)

So what's so special about ORAC?

ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. ORAC tells you the antioxidant capacity of a food item. Most of us think that berries such as blueberries and strawberries have high antioxidant values; however, most essential oils knock the food values out of the ballpark! Longevity blend by well over 1 million. Wolfberries are a close one with their ORAC value at over 30,000 - the highest antioxidant food out there!



So why should we care about ORAC and antioxidants in particular ? - because they are wellness-promoting & ANTI AGING...& there is nothing wrong with aging well! We do know that the oxidative stress or free radical theory is based on the fact that continued oxidative stress to cells, receptors, & DNA in the body cause aging; beyond the normal aging process. The good news is one of the best ways we can decrease the amount of oxidative stress is by increasing our uptake of Antioxidants.


So while you're thinking of what to add to your Young Living wellness shopping basket why not consider a bottle of YL's Longevity ๐Ÿ˜‰ Made with Clove, Myrrh & Frankincense it is a very powerful antioxidant support oil blend that helps to neutralize free radicals, strengthen memory, support great looking skin, immune system, & more. Once you have it just add a drop or two to a capsule, your almond milk, tea, or water & intake it daily! And remember that it is never too late to add more Omega fats to your daily routine. Whatever your diet looks like — I strongly encourage you to find a way to sneak more omega-3 into your meals, or better yet, grab yourself some easy-to-take OmegaGize 3! Have you ever realized how much Omega 3 fats are beneficial to our bodies? In one particular study that was done over the span of 50 years, researchers & scientists analyzed blood & overall health markers of 2,000 residents that were 65+ years old. They looked particularly at their omega fat levels, & compared things like cardiovascular risk factors, overall health, and longevity. 

The findings? Take a look:

- Omega 3 fats are super helpful to our heart health & longevity.

- Upping your Omega 3 consumption can have life-changing impacts on your health.

Besides making colorful changes to your diet, add YL's OmegaGize 3 to your daily supplement routine! it combines the power of three core daily supplements: omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D3, and CoQ10 (ubiquinone). Not only is this great for your overall health, but you'll find that it's beneficial to your cardiovascular & skeletal systems, brain health, Anti-Aging & so much much!

The good news is that despite the plethora of modern-day health concerns, many of the solutions to our wellbeing rests in our hands—specifically, in what we fill our bodies with. The colorful Foods and Essential oils that exist in nature are simply the most powerful things we can add to our plates & cups, Wolfberries anyone? This super fruit is a tasty superfood that can be easily incorporated into your healthy snacking, your recipes & yummy drinks! I add a package of it every couple of months in my Subscribe to Save basket & love taking it with me when going to the beach, hiking, or skiing!


Cheers to supporting your health AND Longevity๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ*Remember, in order to get the Essential Rewards Exclusive KidScents Owie 5-ml and KidScents SleepyIze 5-ml and KidScents KidPower 15-ml, you have to be enrolled in Essential Rewards (ER) and have an order that meets the PV requirements for those items. The extra bonus of meeting all these PV amounts with your ER order is that you get even more ER points to spend later!

๐Ÿ˜ดKidScents SleepyIze 5-ml (Bonus Essential Rewards 400 PV tier)
The name "SleepyIze" says it all. It's pre-diluted for kids but it is effective for all. A few drops on the bottom of the feet or in the diffuser and everyone will be ready to doze off. 
• Promotes an atmosphere conducive to a calm, restful sleep
• Tend & mend muscles. Knead 2โ”€3 drops of the pre-diluted SleepyIze blend into weary muscles and feet before bed.

๐Ÿค•KidScents Owie 5-ml (Bonus Essential Rewards 400 PV tier)
Kids are resilient, but everyone gets bumps and bruises and scrapes in life. Kids just get them more often. ๐Ÿ™‚ Owie is great for soothing and comforting and helping the body during its natural healing process. 
• Naturally soothes minor skin irritations
• Tackle roughhousing. Watch over your wounded by diffusing the scents of Balsam Fir, Tea Tree, and Clove infused in Owie essential oil blend.


๐ŸคงKidScents SniffleEase 5-ml (300 PV tier)
This is the perfect blend to comfort kids with the sniffles and keep them focused when surrounded by other kids and their germs (only other kids have germs, right?). Being pre-diluted can save us some time and still give us relief and comfort when we need it.
• Can be diffused or applied directly to chests or throats
• Creates a relaxing, soothing vapor that promotes wellness when inhaled & inspires calm breathing


๐Ÿ˜ŒKidScents UnWind 25-pack (250 PV tier)
You know when people used to tell us to "take a chill pill"? Well, UnWind is the powder version of a chill pill. Let the kids use one and calm all the way down when it's time to get ready for bed. This is the perfect addition to a nighttime routine, and something we adults can use to pump the brakes, mentally speaking.
• A kid-friendly magnesium supplement
• Reduces restlessness & helps promote a calm state: improves focus & mental clarity

๐Ÿ‘ถGentle Baby 5-ml (190 PV tier)
I have a feeling if we did a poll on how much people use Gentle Baby for their kids and how much they use it for themselves, the latter might win. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It is SO good for skincare, for sleep, for mood support, and so much more. Diffuse it. Infuse your nighttime moisturizers with it. Rub it on the bottom of the little ones' feet before nap time or bedtime. 
• Comforting, soothing, relaxing scent to people of ALL ages!
• The perfect blend for Mom & Baby's skin; pairs well with Rose Ointment


๐Ÿ’ชKidScents KidPower 15-ml (Bonus Essential Rewards 190 PV tier)
KidValor is a good nickname for KidPower. Confidence, empowerment, overcoming life's day-to-day struggles. This helps give the courage to tackle every day. 
• Inspires feelings of confidence, courage, emotional balance, well-being, & positivity.
• Helps ease occasional feelings of doubt, fear, & worry.


๐Ÿ†“ Shipping (100 PV tier)
EVERY Standard or Monthly order of 100pv+ ships for FREE!!!


Looking for ways to use these oils? Check this out!


YL for sure had kids in mind when they curated the KidScents line, & great news: YL is using the same oils they use in other blends, so the effectiveness is still 100% there. So even if you don't have kids, these oils and products are still for you. But if you do have kids, you will be grateful to have these1
Which KidScents oil are you are looking forward to getting for free this month???

Please reach out if you have any questions and I will be happy to help!

UPDATE - New Things are Coming Your Way!

UPDATE - New Things are Coming Your Way!
Hey, have you heard? Exciting things are happening in Young Living!! 
So much so, I need to tell you all about it!

#BeInTheKnow

But before I do, I want to express my gratitude to you! I want you to know that I am truly grateful for you & your support of my small business while you shop for the very best health & wellness products in the market. 
You are SO appreciated!


Ready for the exciting news? Young Living has a brand-NEW shopping platform they plan to launch to all current YL members VERY SOON! You’re going to LOVE the new experience. The site is getting a complete overhaul!! But take note that there will be additional updates. YL wants the experience to be the best it can possibly be for everyone, so hang tight. It's all going to be pretty amazing! 

YL has made it incredibly easy for us to shop, save, earn free gifts with purchases, & earn loyalty points as well as free shipping. When you log into youngliving.com, you’ll go straight to the shopping platform, you no longer have to see or use the Virtual Office, unless you’re a Brand Partner (see below). You also get to choose how you want to shop, as well as which products are the most important to you each month. You’ll even get to learn about each product and how to use it along the way! #SoHelpful  ...AND all current wholesale members will have another FULL YEAR of getting their 24% discount!!


Heads up! The name of Essential Rewards will be changed to "Loyalty Rewards Program" and your "ER Points" will be called "LR Points." Currently, our ER program is a monthly autoship program. Subscribe to Save will be its new name & it will give you options to put favorites on subscription for you to receive at 1, 2, or 3-month intervals. 


You'll also find there will be Customers and there will be Brand Partners. The difference? Brand Partners are people who are building a YL business. Customers are those who simply buy & enjoy their YL products. If you're not a Brand Partner yet but would like to know more about the business changes, let me know & we'll chat! 

You've got mail! Did you see it? YL recently sent out an email to you to let you know if you'll be classified as a Customer or Brand Partner starting in sometime May. If you have ANY questions or believe you've been classified incorrectly, please let me know. I'm here to help!

Now, let's talk about a few other topics to help you navigate the differences and make the changeover easier for you...

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Are you currently an ER member? Then you have no changes to worry about! You can still place a monthly 50+ PV order & earn Loyalty Points on each order you place, as well as gifts with your purchase. The difference is that it will be set up through the Subscribe to Save (under My Account / My Subscriptions). 

Let me explain it a little further for you. Each of your products that you get in your Loyalty Rewards order (formerly ER) will be part of "Subscribe to Save" - in other words, you'll make it part of your subscription. Hang in there with me...

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ If there are products you purchase every month / 2 months / 3 months, you can place those on Subscription as part of your Loyalty Rewards order. EX: you get Ningxia Red (NR) every month, so when you set up my Loyalty Rewards order, you'll put that as a monthly item. Let's say you get a body wash every other month, you'll add that to your subscription & set it to every 2 months. If it's an oil or product you'd only get occasionally, such as Jade Lemon essential oil, you'll add that this month as a monthly item, but then change it next month - just like you already do now with your ER orders. It's the same thing, just a different way of going about it. 

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Pay attention to your PV amount, NOT your subtotal. That way, you'll know if you've met the PV amount you want to reach as your Loyalty Rewards minimum, to earn gifts with purchase at the 190 / 250 / 300 levels. If you're a Brand Partner, you'll want to know your PV to make sure you're qualifying for your full commission. 
After you've done this a couple of times, it won't feel so overwhelming. I understand it can feel this way at first. Remember, I'm here to help if you need anything! The new site is incredibly intuitive & is so much easier to navigate.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ How do you know if you've been classified as a Brand Partner? Brand Partners are ranked Star or above, enrolled someone in the last year, have been paid in the past year or purchased a YL Business Kit ($29). 

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Why the change? Current YL members are classified as distributors, even if they're solely purchasing products at wholesale pricing. The FTC likes to see that people are only considered as business team members if they have specifically chosen to do that and are building a business. These changes align us with FTC guidelines & better focus on Customer needs.

Do you have any questions in regards to the changes? Please reach out and ask!

๐ŸŒบ Now that we have that out of the way. Let's chat about how May is right around the corner, which means, so is Mother's Day!! That came up crazy fast, right?

If you are looking for some great gift ideas for Mother's Day, birthdays, or just because, then check out this sway for some fantastic ideas: 




I know this newsletter had a ton of information. So THANK YOU for hanging in there with me! I always want to keep you in the know as well as provide tips, ideas, & education so you can make the most out of your YL products as you work toward reaching and maintaining your health goals. I'm committed to doing all I can to support you!
