You will need:

  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 5 frozen strawberries

  • 1.5 cups of coconut milk

 

Optional butt kicking immune boosting SUPERPOWERS  to add to your smoothie:

Fall Checklist: Top 10 must-have Young Living Products for Fall & Winter

#1 Thieves – We all know Thieves essential oil blend is amazing for supporting the immune system. Take internally every day as a dietary supplement to support your body’s natural defenses. You can take in a vegetable capsule, Thieves  Tea, Thieves Oat Rolls, Immune supporting Gummies, and more!

#2 Purification – Purification is a great oil to diffuse to cleanse and purify the air to protect your family. We also apply this oil over our lymph nodes in the neck to support the immune system.

#3 Oregano – Oregano is a powerhouse for supporting the immune system. This is a spicy oil so make sure to always dilute with a carrier oil such as V-6 or olive oil. Oregano is yummy in your soups or italian recipes, or added to a capsule with carrier oil.

#4 R.C. – R.C. stands for Respiratory Care and is a must-have to support the respiratory system. Breath easy by applying R.C. over the chest or diffusing.

#5 DiGize – DiGize is a blend of oils formulated to specifically support the digestive system. This one is such a necessity to support regularity, minor digestive upset, to take in a capsule after spicy foods, and travel. Works like a charm every time!

#6 Ningxia Red – Ningxia Red is Young Living’s superfood juice made from wolfberries and essential oils. 1-2 ounces a day is a serving size and great for supporting all body systems especially the immune system and consistent energy levels throughout the day.

#7 Frankincense – Frankincense is known as “the prize of all oils” and for good reason. This oil is very high is sesquiterpenes and  is great for supporting the immune system, nervous system, skin, respiratory system, and more. We like to diffuse or apply this oil topically.

#8 Inner Defense – Many Young Living essential oils can be taken internally for great physical benefits, but we don’t all have time to stop and put together our capsules on-the-go. Inner Defense are pre-made capsules filled with a variety of immune-supporting essential oils. These are a must-have for holiday travels or to keep at the office.

#9 Thieves Spray – One way to support the health of your family is to keep a safe home. Thieves spray is great to spray on counters, tables, keyboards, phones, fabrics, and more to cleanse and protect. The small bottle is even great to keep in your purse for on-the-go like public bathrooms, doorknobs, and more.

#10 Thieves Lozenges – Take the power of Thieves essential oil with you anywhere with these yummy lozenges. Great for soothing the throat, supporting the immune system, and freshening breath wherever you go.

Daily Immune Support with Young Living. Support your body's natural defenses by taking essential oils internally, diffusing, ningxia red, and thieves products!

Daily Immune Support with Young Living

 

With back to school comes time to boost the immune systems of the whole family! One of the best things you can do is support your body naturally, so it can protect itself and stay well on its own.

We love going through these seasons knowing that our kids are protected against everything they come in contact with and that their bodies are supported to fight when they need to.

Here is some of our personal favorite things we do every day to support our immune systems and maintain wellness all year round.

Essential Oils in a Capsule

Thieves!

We love our Thieves essential oil blend! It is a blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary. It was formulated to support the immune system, and we love to use it internally.

Thieves is great when taken in a capsule as a daily supplement. For those who can’t use capsules you can also take it internally in Soothing Thieves Tea, Thieves Oat Rolls. Kids can also get Thieves in these Immune Supporting Gummies or mixed into applesauce.

Make sure you are only consuming a 100% pure Therapeutic-grade essential oil that is approved for internal use. This is one of the reasons we only trust Young Living in our family. To learn more about why we choose Young Living or to get started go here.

Oregano

 

Oregano essential oil is a powerhouse for supporting the immune system. We love to mix this one into soups and pasta dishes. A little goes a long way, so start with one drop! So yummy. Add the last few minutes before serving so that the oil isn’t heated too much and maintains all its benefits.

Oregano is a very spicy oil, so always make sure to dilute it with a carrier oil such as V-6 or olive oil. The way we like best to use Oregano is added in a capsule. Start with a vegetable capsule, add about 6 drops essential oil, top off with your carrier oil, return cap, and take with water. Eating something small after taking can also help avoid burping up the oregano flavor.

Essential Oils in your Water

Stress Away

Stress Away blend is a great option to drink in your water. Carrying chronic stress can actually weaken the body’s natural defenses. Make sure to take time each day to pray, relax, meditate, etc. to lower your stress level. Stress Away contains lime, ocetea, vanilla, and more making it so yummy in your water in the afternoon.

Remember whenever drinking essential oils to only use glass, stainless steel, or ceramic cups. Please no plastic drinking bottles.

Citrus Oils

Young Living offers a wide range of cold-pressed citrus essential oils. These are all so yummy in your water, help boost your immune system, and gently detox the body of unwanted foreign materials.

Also drinking enough water each day is very important for our overall health! Half your body weight in ounces is suggested, but most of us don’t come close to that. Adding these delicious essential oils to your water can help it taste better and encourage  us to drink more each day!

Some of our favorites to add to our water are Lemon, Lime, Tangerine, Citrus Fresh, Grapefruit, and Orange essential oils. Make sure you are only consuming a 100% pure Therapeutic-grade essential oil that is approved for internal use. This is one of the reasons we only trust Young Living in our family. To learn more about why we choose Young Living or to get started go here.

Ningxia Red

I am obsessed with this superfood juice! Ningxia Red is made from wolfberries (gogi berries) which are known for the high level of antioxidants. The wolfberries in Ningxia China have twice the level of antioxidants of any other gogi berry tested, so Young Living has an exclusive deal to distribute them. They make the berries into a juice, add other nutrient packed juices, essential oils, and you get Ningxia Red.

Just 1-2 ounces a day is a serving size, so a bottle lasts a good while. It is amazing for supporting every body system especially the immune system. I like to start my day with a shot of Ningxia Red with an added drop of Thieves and Lime. Helps maintain my energy levels throughout the afternoon. My kids even enjoy it and call it “juice.” For them I add one ounce to 8 ounces of cold water.

Diffusing Essential Oils

One of the easiest ways to get the benefits of essential oils is by diffusing. There are so many essential oils that can support the immune system. They are also amazing at cleansing and purifying the air. We love to diffuse Purification to keep our air healthy all year ’round, especially in the winter months when we can’t open the windows.

Thieves Products

One of the easiest changes you can make in your home to be healthier is just to change some basic products you use. Many common household items are filled with toxins and are “antibacterial.” While that sounds like a good idea for bad bacteria, it is actually harming the good bacteria as well. Having a healthy gut full of good bacteria is essential to having a strong immune system, so over-cleaning and killing those bacteria is actually damaging to the immune system.

As a healthy alternative we love the entire line of Thieves Products. We talked above about how great Thieves essential oil blend is for the body’s natural defenses, so you can imagine how great it is at keeping your household healthy too. Young Living offers toothpaste, mouthwash, floss, mints, household cleaner, dish soap, hand soap, spray cleanser, hand purifier, laundry detergent, and even lozenges all containing the natural power of Thieves!

I hope this post has helped you understand the value of keeping your body at its best to be able to fight against things you may come in contact with. With fall in the air, we are doing our best to keep the kids (and ourselves) fully prepared for what is to come.
