Bonuses for Loyalty Customers:
You can also ring in the new year with 15 percent off DiGize Essential Oil Blend (15 ml) and NingXia Greens powder with loyalty orders. The sale starts Monday, January 1st while supplies last!

  • DiGize Essential Oil Blend is one of the oil blends that I recommend most to my clients. Essential oils have many properties that support digestion and they have also been shown to be beneficial to the microbiome. Evidence is pointing to the fact that although they have antimicrobial properties, essential oils tend to decrease pathogens while sparing, or enhancing, beneficial microbes. (I spoke about this in detail on this episode of the Essential Oil Revolution Podcast.) Some of my favorite essential oils for overall gut health include many listed in DiGize Essential Oil Blend.
  • Ningxia Greens - With NingXia Greens, getting your daily dose of fruits and greens has been made simple. Add 1 scoop to your daily smoothie, juice, protein shakes, or even water for a quick and easy way to get your nutrients! Each serving contains 48 fermented whole foods, five varieties of immune-supporting mushrooms, and wolfberry fruit from the Seed to Seal® farm in Ningxia, China. The ingredients are skillfully extracted using a heat-free method so you can enjoy the full nutrients and healthy benefits they have to offer. Read a study review on the Ningxia Goji berry here.

Below is more information on the gifts and oily education from my own research and YL's product overviews.

More Information on January 2024's Gifts with Purchase
1. Grapefruit Bergamot Vitality Drops- Grapefruit and bergamot oils are combined in YL Vitality Drops to help you hydrate naturally without sugar or artificial colors. These essential oils can take your water or favorite beverage to the next level and will keep you hydrated and feeling great.*
  • Like all citrus oils, grapefruit oil has a high d-limonene content. This compound has immune modulating properties, digestive balancing characteristics, and is well-studied in clinical trials. Unlike the fruit, the essential oil does not contain the amounts of bergamottin and 6,7-dihydroxybergamottin (DHB) that would impact medication. 
  • Bergamot essential oil (BEO) is a popular essential oil I use for calming and keeping my clients upbeat in my naturopathic clinic. Clinical studies have supported its overall positive role in reducing stress, alleviating cardiovascular excitement, improving nervous system tone (as measured by heart rate variability), and alleviating anxious symptos. (A table from a review on BEO that outlines seven studies can be found here.)
2. Peppermint Oil - Peppermint oil is best known for how it supports the gut and digestion, but it also enhances exercise performance and attention.
  • Researchers of one small study with 30 healthy male university students randomly divided them into an experimental group of oral administration of peppermint oil (50 ul) and a control group. The study aimed to determine if ingestion of peppermint oil modulated physiological parameters and exercise performance after five minutes and one hour of administration. The authors measured maximum isometric grip force, vertical and long jumps, spirometric parameters, visual and audio reaction times, blood pressure, heart rate, and breath rate. The results revealed significant improvement in all the variables following peppermint essential oil consumption.*
  • Peppermint has also been shown to be helpful for focus. In one recent, small study it was reported that, “Both cinnamon and peppermint administration led to increased ratings of alertness, decreased temporal demand, and decreased frustration over the course of the driving scenario. In addition, peppermint scent reduced anxiety and fatigue.”
  • Finally, peppermint oil also has clinical evidence for relieving symptoms of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), which is often linked to cognitive and mood imbalances. 
  • When I was in naturopathic medicine school, I was known for passing around a bottle of peppermint oil before exams. Every passerby knew when our class had a test, because the whole room smelled like a refreshing minty delight!!
  • *(50 ul is about 4-5 drops of essential oils, .05ml = .001 oz, 300 drops are in 15 ml of oils or .5 oz)
3. Thieves Chest Rub -Thieves® Chest Rub uses plant power to deliver over-the-counter strength to temporarily relieve cough and congestion with the soothing aroma and power of camphor, menthol, and eucalyptus. It is a 100 percent plant-based alternative for over-the-counter cough and congestion relief. 
  • Thieves Chest Rub works to temporarily relieve irritations of the common cold and support healthy breathing, all while suppressing cough with a hands-free application and no sticky residue. Safe for ages 2 and up, Thieves Chest Rub acts quickly to naturally provide maximum-strength relief and soothing aromatic vapors. It’s active ingredients are menthol, camphor, and eucalyptus oil.
  • It is based on the Thieves oil blend which is a combination of clove, rosemary, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and lemon oils. These oils defend against germs and can support lung health (e.g., eucalyptus is high in 1-8 cineole).  Read more here. (Note: Due to the eucalyptus is best to use with children 30 months and up.) 
4. Inner Beauty Collagen Supplement The Young Living Website states: IInner Beauty Collagen™ offers 5 grams of collagen, antioxidants, and other skin-supporting ingredients with every scoop. Even better, it’s formulated with naturally derived, sustainably sourced ingredients, so you can feel good about your skin and your purchase. 
  • Unlike other collagen powder supplements derived from bovine sources, ours features bioavailable type I marine collagen sourced exclusively from sustainable marine sources. Other key ingredients include skin-hydrating ceramides extracted from Japanese peaches, tapioca fiber from plants harvested sustainably in Thailand, and our exclusive Vanilla oleoresin that’s blended with fractionated coconut oil instead of alcohol. 
  • Taken daily, Inner Beauty Collagen supports vibrant, lit-from-within skin and healthy-looking hair and nails. Enjoy it as a tasteless addition to your morning smoothie or in your post-workout protein shake. Learn more about collagen research here. Learn more about the product here.
5. Super C Tablets - Super C™ supports body defenses, respiratory health, and provides circulatory support with a combination of vitamin c, rutin, citrus bioflavonoids, minerals, and an array of premium essential oils. These ingredients work together to promote overall health, vitality, and longevity. It includes whole food components, in which additional health effects from nutrient synergy may be optimized. 
  • Vitamin C is one of the most noteworthy supplements for wellness, but it also has additional actions that can benefit a tired-out body. These include its role in the formation of collagen for the skin, as an antioxidant, and as an essential nutrient for certain enzymatic pathways and neurotransmitter formation.  
  • Vitamin C is probably best paired in combination with other minerals for overall resiliency and defense and repair. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)  In a 2006 article, the authors reported the following on the functions of vitamin C and zinc and the impact of both being present for ameliorating unwanted symptoms.
To reinforce body strength, take 2 tablets daily. For maintenance, take 1 tablet daily. Best if taken before meals.
