January health box

January 31, 2017 Comments Off on January health box

It’s a happy day when my monthly health box from Young Living arrives.  Thankfully my husband was home when this months health box arrived.  It was a large box which he was so kindly to bring in and place in the kitchen.  He knows I like to open it right when I see it.

Most months I order more than essential oils and this month was no different.  I ordered 4 bottles of Ningxia Red.  Ningxia Red has been a go to every day for my husband and I.  We have created a habit of adding a shot a day of this whole-body supplement.  It is packed with superfoods to support overall wellness.  The benefits also include support for energy levels, normal cellular function, and whole-body and normal eye health.  For over two years I have been on support mode instead of reaction mode.

The preventative/support mode makes more sense then reacting once you are sick.  Previously when I was sick I felt horrible.  It would linger on and I would end up having to see a doctor.  This is when I would walk out of the office with a prescription scrip to help mask my symptoms until I felt better.  I don’t know about you but I hate being sick.  It’s the worst.  This is when it clicked, if I support my health I will feel stronger and healthier and hopefully not get sick as often.  Knock on wood, I am over two years into supporting and haven’t been sick.  Woohoo!!

I reordered lavender conditioner and lavender mint daily shampoo.  When I got my hair trimmed last week my hairstylist commented on how healthy my hair was and asked what I have been using.  I shared with her what I have been using daily in the shower to clean my hair.   She told me not to change it as it was working.  I love this!

If you have read my other monthly health box orders you know I love lavender essential oil.  It is my go to essential oil to apply onto our wool balls.  I love the scent they leave on our clothes.  Best part, chemical free!  I also diffuse lavender every night in our bedroom.  It creates a relaxing aroma to help me sleep tight.

In November 2015 I ordered the wolf berry eye cream.  It finally ran out and I ordered another one.  It only takes a small amount at night under your eyes to do the job.  A little goes a long way.  And by a long way, I am talking about time.

New to me this month is ART intensive moisturizer.  I have the ART light moisturizer and wanted something to help my dry skin from the winter weather.  I have used it the last couple of days and I am happy with the results.  It doesn’t smell as bad as the ART light moisturizer.  Not all essential oils smell wonderful.  However, the benefits far exceed the smell, at least that is what I tell myself every time I apply it.

My order qualified for the 300PV rewards this month.  This means I got a bunch of essential oils for FREE.  I don’t know about you but I love free items.  I always look at what the promotion is that month and base my order off of what I will be receiving for free.  This month was a good month to receive a bunch of essential oils for free.  I received Peace & Calming which has been out of stock.  It creates a calming affect, great to diffuse in a stressful situation or at night right before bed.  Joy was another essential oil I received.  I wear joy as a perfume.  It smells wonderful.  I apply it on my wrists.  I also received Eucalyptus Globulous, Helichrysum, Basil Vitality, and Citrus Fresh Vitality all free.

Essentail Rewards is the way to go if you know you are going to order on a monthly basis.  You get a discount on shipping, receive 10% back on months 1-3, 20% months 4-24, and 25% 25 and on.  I am getting close to 25 months on being on essential rewards.  I am so excited to receive another 5% towards my essential reward points.  These points add up.  I typically save them and use them when something has been out of stock and comes back in stock.

I want to live a happy and healthy life and this health box I receive once a month helps me live the life I want.  I challenge you next time you reach for an item you use on a regular basis read the label.  For every ingredient you don’t know what it is, google it.  The fewer the ingredients the better.  Switching to a chemical free life is easier than it is.  Having a clean bill of health is priceless.
