New Natural Make-Up

You have changed and replaced a lot of toxic stuff in your home already AND there are still some areas where you could not get a real, a great alternative?!
Toxic-free Make-up might be one of these areas.

In Europe, we are fortunate to have organic, biological, safe cosmetics around for quite some time now. So why do we need a new line from Young Living?

Those were exactly my thoughts :)

I am not and have never been a heavy make up user - at all. The occasional Mascara, eyeliner and lippgloss yes, but on a daily base, no, thank you!

But I tried it out, loved it and discovered that again, like with the essential oils, there is a playing element in it that I really love :)

And I love that this can be a great healthy, toxic free alternative for women who are using make up daily!

So in summer 2017 YL presented this new line Savvy Minerals which will be available for us in Europe from January 2018 on! Great! I ordered a selection of the Savvy Minerals Linie already from the States and am loving and using the Lipgloss already a lot.

More to come in January!

Healthy Home

For your clean and healthy home

More and more people are looking for an alternative to the many cleaning products and personal care products that are filled with toxic chemicals.

So did we! This was the reason we started using YL products! And we are more than happy that we found them :)

The story of Thieves®

Thieves® essential oil blend was inspired by the legend of four thieves in France during the 15th century who protected themselves against the plague with an aromatic blend composed of cloves, rosemary and other botanicals to use while robbing the dead and the dying. When they were caught they were offered a lighter sentence in exchange for their secret formula.

The Thieves® oil blend includes cinnamon, clove, rosemary, lemon and eucalyptus radiata and has been specially blended to support a healthy immune system.

Do you remember your mother or grandmother using a clove to ease off a toothache?

Young Living created an extensive line of natural household products using the power of the Thieves® blend for a clean, toxic free and healthy household. From toothpaste and mouthwash to cleaning products and hand soap, the Thieves® product line is a safe, natural alternative for the use in our homes.

  THIEVES® HOUSEHOLD CLEANER AND REFILL                                     THIEVES® HANDSOAP AND REFILL

Toxic free home

In the spirit of the this legend, the Thieves® line of products offer a safe and natural alternative to harsh chemicals and cleaners with formulas that work hard and smell amazing.

The Thieves® Household Cleaner is a nontoxic, biodegradable, all-purpose cleaning solution enhanced with essential oils.  We usually dilute this houshold cleaner and occasionally also used it straight from the bottle. The ratio of dilution is found on the bottle. Together with the good old vinegar and baking powder this is the only cleaning product we use to clean our house in a safe and effective way.

The newest addition to the Thieves® line of prducts are Thieves® laundry soapdiswasher soap and a fruit wash. For now these products are only available in the States. While waiting on being launched in Europe, I give you a recipe for making your own!

Not only for Travelling: the small spraybottle with Thieves® Spray is a mix of water and Thieves® essential oil blend. We use it all the time when we are travelling to spray on airplane seats, doorhandles and toilets. Friends of ours with small children use this spray to wipe down the changing tables in public areas.

However, the Thieves spray is not complete without the Thieves®waterless Handpurifier! Whenever you need a little cleaning of your hands: after riding the subways, being on the train, in the shopping mall pushing a shopping trolly....and many more occasions.

What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are the natural, very concentrated, aromatic liquids that are within trees, flowers, leaves, shrubs, roots, seeds and even grass and are usually extracted through steam distillation.

Essential oils support the plants in their growth and adaptation to the environment as well as play an important role in defending against insects and diseases.

And essential oils are very complex and are made up of hundreds of different, unique chemical compounds.

It requires a large amount of plant material to produce a small amount of essential oil, for example, it takes 2500kg of rose petals to produce 1kg of rose essential oil! Wow!

Why Quality matters?

The Quality of an essential oil is really important. Actually, it is the key to have an essential oil with optimal levels of the specific, naturally occurring constituents that characterize each plant!

When working with and using essential oils they will obviously end up in each cell of our bodies.  Every chemical constituent of the essential oil. So the quality of the oil determines whether there is a favorable action or a damaging action in our bodies.

That's why you want to use therapeutic grade essential oils. The best!

Free Radicals

A free radical is an atom that is missing an electron. Free Radicals come from normal metabolic functions, stress, pollution, exposure to x-rays and chlorine and poor diet.

If there are too many free radicals in our body it will result in premature aging and pain. They play an important part with the inflammation process.

Free Radicals can alter and destroy cells and have been linked to some of the most common disorders of today.

We need lots of antioxidants to neutralize the free radicals in our body. The thing with essential oils in nutritional supplements is that they enhance the bioavailability for the cells, meaning whatever the supplement is, it gets into your cells faster thanks to the essential oil. Great!

All the Young Living nutritional supplements are thus enhanced with different great essential oils.
