ONE, invite God into your day...

To engage your mind, energize your body and calm your emotions, carve out a little time for prayer and meditation each day. It offers both relaxation and energizing benefits at the same time. Encompassing fitness, health and wellness, prayer develops a mind-body connection that can be realized by no other means. And essential oils are a great way to further deepen your connection with God while getting all the health benefits that come with the use of essential oils. Prayer when practiced regularly can be powerful, calming to the nerves and will bring the mind into a restful state. Research has shown that prayer and meditation may physically change the brain and body. And it can potentially improve health, as well as, promote healthy behaviors. I personally love to use a guided prayer video with my oils for my morning devotionals.  

TWO, get the Thieves Starter Kit!

  • Go and get this kit right now. Seriously. If you're new to Young Living, make this your first purchase. Even if you already have some Thieves products at home, you want to make sure you’re stocked up, because the first and best defense is good hygiene. If you take nothing else away from this guide but one thing, understand that you. need. Thieves.

  • Good hygiene shouldn’t come at the expense of your wellness, though (what, you didn’t know that household cleaners can make you sick?!?), so make sure you’ve got the good stuff on hand that actually helps your body’s natural defenses. 

  • Formulated with the power of Young Living’s Thieves essential oil blend, Thieves Household Cleaner is a concentrated, versatile solution that gives you a deep clean when scrubbing, degreasing, spot cleaning, dusting, and more—all without harsh chemicals. With its spicy-sweet aroma and plant-based formula, it’s great to use around everyone in your family, including pets. Create a clean, welcoming space that’s perfect for everyone with the fresh, inviting scent and sparkling clean of Thieves Household Cleaner.
...Stock up on staples

Next, make sure you've got pantry & home staples on hand. To avoid the crowds we’re seeing in stores these days, order online. 
Don't freak out - but get enough dry food & bottled water to last you 1-2 weeks. That should be plenty. Leave some for other families, as well... and have enough toiletries and first aid supplies, too, so you don't have to worry about running out or having to leave the house. And remember to get food, meds & supplies for your furry friends too.
But seriously - did you stock up on hand soap and sanitizer? I didn't know THIS was the proper way to wash your hands. Did you? 
Here's a tip: When washing your hands, try singing a "handwashing song, “Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream" (sing 2 times for good measure). 

...Stock up on supplements

  • Now that you’ve got a clean, happy house and a stocked pantry—it’s time to make sure your body systems are in tip top shape. Even if you’re a tree hugging super foodie, you’ve still got nutrition gaps because our fields are depleted! Here’s what I use… 
  • You need these because vitamin C (Super C) is highly effective in supporting the immune system.  
  • ImmuPro also supports the body, but will help you get fabulous sleep, during worrisome times. 
  • Life 9 is a powerhouse probiotic providing strength to your core as you battle the crud floating around. Seriously, it adds so much good probiotics to your gut you will be able to filter the bad out as you hold onto the good, to keep your immune system strong. 
  • And the juice… NingXia Red. It’s super high in antioxidants, which helps keep your cells clean, especially from invaders. It also tastes good. WIN
... Stock up on OILS

I literally do not leave home without these, and you won’t want to, either. Remember the cleaner I told you about earlier? It gets its magic power from essential oils. Now I could go into a week-long rant about ALL things oils but let’s keep this on topic. Here are the oils I am using, and exactly what you need to make sure you keep in stock: 

  • Thieves
    • Diffuse 4-6 drops in a diffuser, or apply diluted on chest or feet.
  • Frankincense
    • Diffuse with Thieves, take orally and apply on bottom of feet.
  • Lavender
    • Diffuse with Thieves.
    • Apply to spine and bottom of feet.
    • BONUS – do this before bed, for fantastic sleep! The body thrives in supporting its immune system when it’s rested!
  • Raven
    • Massage onto chest, using pure fatty oil like organic coconut oil, to open up the airways.
  • Lemon
    • Diffuse with Lavender and Thieves.
    • Put a drop in a glass of water in the morning to cleanse the system.
If you don’t have one yet, you can grab this kit and have everything you need. One click and done. Gotta love simple, right?

THREE, Don't forget to keep Living!

  • Finally, remember you’re going to be LIVING, so don’t forget the fun stuff!
  • I can’t live without: a good book, smoked almonds, fizzy water, and my Antioxidant Drink.
  • Get some craft supplies, get a board game or two or just grab a deck of cards.
  • Just because life shuts down for a while doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still have fun!

Be kind to yourself.

Learn about healing from the inside out with body systems. 
Give your body what it's asking for. Address the core issues, don't settle for a band-aid fix. You're one assessment away from finding out what your body needs. I've put together some of my favorite bundles for you.
