Pumkin Spice Frappé

Anyone out there been counting down the days til pumpkin spice season??Is it cooler where you are yet? If not we have the perfect recipe for you that tastes like fall, but is still nice and cool!

Here is a healthy DIY alternative to a pumpkin spice frappuccino from your favorite coffee shop! Happy Pumpkin Spice Latte Season!

DIY PUMPKIN SPICE FRAPPUCINO
Blend all and enjoy!
2 C cooled coffee or espresso
2 T Vanilla Spice Pure Protein Complete
1/4 C pumpkin puree
Ice

If you can’t do dairy, here is an alternative recipe I created based on Danielle Walker’s Pumpkin Spice Latte:

NON-DAIRY PUMPKIN SPICE FRAPPUCINO
For this one I would add the oils to the sweetener before blending!
2 C cooled coffee or espresso
3/4 C non dairy milk (almond, coconut, or oat milk is super creamy!)
1/4 C pumpkin puree
1/4 t Vanilla Extract (I usually don’t measure, just do a splash!)
2 T sweetener of choice (maple syrup, agave, honey)
1 Drop Thieves Vitality (or you choose! Cinnamon Bark, Nutmeg, Ginger, or Clove Vitality would all work!)
Ice

For either of these you could top with whipped cream (I love this coconut whipped cream), caramel drizzle, whatever makes you happy!

Fall Home Must-Haves

Here is an easy list to go by for what to have on hand for you home right now! Fall is here (yay!) and we are here for it!!

Thieves Household Cleaner: Our favorite and most amazing all-in-one, clean, non-toxic cleaner. This one bottle will clean everything from your toilets to your car, your toys to your floors. And it’s highly concentrated, only needing one ounce for an entire spray bottle of water so this bottle of concentrate will last you forever!

Thieves Foaming Hand Soap: yep, you guessed it…I have this at every single sink in my home. It smells amazing, cleans amazing and its safe for those precious little hands it’s washing!

New Diffusers: Have y’all been as googly-eyed over the new diffusers as I have?! These would be the perfect addition to your home this season to diffuse those immunity-boosting oils- plus they are GORGEOUS and fit with anyone’s style!!

The new Lustre & Lucia diffusers are beautiful, hand-made, high quality glass diffusers exclusive to Young Living. Their stylish design complements a variety of home décor. Multiple run modes and lighting options. Lustre runs up to 12 hours and Lucia up to 8 hours.

Thieves Dish Soap: guess what it says on the bottle? “If swallowed, drink plenty of water…” – um yes please! Safe, good product AND….it cleans amazing and may or may not smell like Christmas! I don’t know about you, but I want to know that what I’m putting on my dishes that I EAT off of is totally safe and not adding chemicals & toxins to my families bodies!

Thieves Laundry Soap: Thieves Laundry Soap is plant-based and is as pure and natural as a detergent is going to get—plus it contains the most powerful essential oils on the planet that not only make it smell amazing, but really help to get things clean. I mean, I use Thieves for cleaning literally everything in my house, and now they’ve made the best detergent I’ve ever tried out of the stuff.

This little compact bottle does 64 loads of laundry, instead of your typical 32. It’s 6x concentrated, so a little goes a long way. I love that it’s not so cumbersome like those giant jugs of detergent, and doesn’t take up a ton of space in your laundry room. And IT. WORKS. Stains come out, whites don’t get dingy, dirty little toddler clothes actually come out CLEAN. I can’t believe how well it works with only needing to use such a small amount.

Fall Wellness Must-Haves

Are you wondering what to have on hand right now for your wellness cabinet? Here is our quick list to go by for your ER and quick orders. Have these in your home and ready to go for the fall!!

Ningxia: Our favorite superfood “red drink” that offers all of these amazing benefits-
+An immunity boost for the fall
+Be proactive against all the fall germs coming our way
+Energy!!!!!!!
+Antioxidants!!!!!!!
+Brain Health
+Join Health

and sosoooso many more things!!

Check out the Ningxia Red Unit in our FB group for alllll the info: https://bit.ly/2Qo0dxv

Multigreens: It’s a supplement with a chlorophyll formula designed to boost vitality by working with the glandular, nervous and circulatory systems. It contains spirulina, alfalfa sprouts, barley grass, bee pollen, eleuthero, Pacific kelp, and the therapeutic essential oils of Melissa, Lemongrass, Lemon and Rosemary.
The benefits include:
+Spirulina – Rich in Magnesium, improves energy and metabolism, detoxifies, targets the immune system, liver, kidneys, intestinal flora, and cardiovascular system.
+ Alfalfa Sprouts – High in chlorophyll and minerals.
+ Barley Grass – Powerful antioxidant rich in vital minerals.
+ Bee Pollen – High in protein, minerals, potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, manganese, copper and B vitamins
+ Eleuthero – Boosts energy, reduces stress, strengthens lymphocyte formation, which strengthens the immune system.
+ Pacific Kelp – Contains nutrients to support the endocrine system.
+ Melissa, Lemongrass, Lemon and Rosemary essential oils are added to enhance the absorption of nutrients and help to support a health immune system and emotional well-being.
You may even notice improvement to your complexion! They also support a healthy pH balance, which keeps us well!

Super C: Vitamin C for the win. Super C combines orange essential oil with a blend of camu camu, acerola, cherry, and rose hips fruit powder to create a super powerful immune-supporting supplement.

Together, these ingredients give us polyphenols, carotenoids, and optimal amounts of vitamin C. It’s chewable, it’s convenient, it’s what you’ll be loading up on throughout fall and winter. Take 1-3 daily, or as needed. This is perfect for adults and kids!
Vitamin C is a super important vitamin. Not only does it help with collagen production, and even impacts the health of bones & teeth but it also helps us better absorb other nutrients. Iron is one of those things! So if you are working on your iron levels make sure to take Vitamin C with your Ningxia Red/Multigreens/etc.

Super D: The majority of us don’t get enough Vitamin D on a daily basis- especially as it gets colder and we’re outside less. This is a GREAT way to make sure you and your family are getting the all important Vitamin D in your diet!

100% plant-based Super Vitamin D with a unique dissolvable delivery and delicious berry flavor. Supports respiratory and immune system health, hormone balance, bone growth, and brain health. Two tablets (120 per bottle) delivers 2,000 IU high potency vitamin D. Vegan-friendly, non-GMO, gluten-free, and NO synthetic ingredients.

Super B: I know for me, Super B has been a GAME CHANGER in the energy and mood department!

B vitamins are essential to our health and well-being, and each B vitamin performs a unique and separate function in the body. Unfortunately, they must be replenished daily, as they are not stored in the body.

Super B is known for supporting normal cardiovascular and cognitive health, aiding in mood improvement, and sustaining healthy energy levels.
Super B contains all eight essential, energy boosting B vitamins. It’s also combined with nutmeg oil and bioavailable chelated minerals such as magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc.

Fun Fact: Different medications such as hormonal birth control can also wreak havoc on your body’s B-vitamin levels, which is why it’s especially a good idea to supplement.

Thieves Cough Drops: You can use this as an extra way to get Thieves EO into your system and support your immunity. And of course you will want this around when someone has a cough. The power of Thieves and menthol in a cough drop! The triple-action formula of Thieves Cough Drops offers comfort by relieving coughs, soothing sore throats, and cooling nasal passages. Minty, spicy, and sweet without processed sugar, dyes, artificial flavors, or preservatives, these cough drops are made with naturally derived ingredients, including Young Living’s pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils and menthol from peppermint.

Inner Defense: THIS is what we keep around in order to get Oregno into our system internally. This one is a huge huge support for immunity. Young Living’s Inner Defense™ reinforces systemic defenses, creates unfriendly terrain for yeast/fungus, promotes healthy respiratory function, and contains potent essential oils like oregano, thyme, and Thieves® which are rich in thymol, carvacrol, and eugenol for immune support. The liquid softgels dissolve quickly for maximum results. Softgel capsule has been reformulated with fish gelatin to remove the need for carrageenan and bees wax used in the porcine gelatin based softgel.

Thieves Chest Rub: Can’t even handle this chest rub!!! So amazing! I put it on everyday just because it’s icy/hot and comforting!

Soothe sniffles, coughs, and congestion with Thieves Chest Rub! This 100 percent plant-based formula combines fast-acting ingredients with over-the counter strength, making it a must-have for every medicine cabinet.

Many similar products are formulated with petroleum, mineral oils, and other synthetic ingredients. Rest assured that you can take control of your comfort with a formula free from harmful chemicals! The ingredients create powerful vapors that soothe nasal passages and support healthy breathing. The cooling sensation you’ll experience happens when Eucalyptus, Menthol, and Camphor bind to sensory nerve receptors. Menthol and Camphor will also help relieve chest aches associated with colds since they are topical analgesics.
Another amazing feature that makes this product different is its hands-free application. This makes it easy to apply on the chest and throat!
Benefits & Features:
– Provides maximum-strength cough relief and acts as a cough suppressant
– Temporarily relieves stuffiness, cough, and congestion from minor throat and bronchial irritation
– Supports healthy breathing
– Provides aromatic vapors that soothe nasal passages
-Acts quickly to provide relief
– Helps relieve chest aches associated with colds
– Formulated free of petroleum, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, synthetic perfumes or dyes, artificial colors, preservatives, or GMO ingredients
– Derived naturally from plants
– Features hands-free application
Directions:
1. For adults and children ages 2 and up, rub a thick layer on chest and throat. Keep clothing loose around the throat and chest so the vapors can reach the nose and mouth. Use up to 3 times daily or as directed by a doctor.

Magic Bubble Bath

My kids are obsessssed with bubble bath so when @oilyay shared this recipe and the cutest label to go with it, it was a MUST MAKE! Easy to whip up, makes a lot, smells like a dream and has zero nasty stuff in it that is no good for their little bodies. Winner winner chicken dinner!

In a large bowl, combine 4 cups of water, 4 oz bath gel(we used Kidscents from YL), 3 oz fractionated coconut oil, and 10 drops of your favorite essential oil (we love grapefruit and gentle baby). Then store in a sealed container. To use, pour under running bathwater.
*I also added a little baking soda for a little more bubbly mixture!

Got the containers from good ol’ amazon!

Since the Charcoal Bar Soap launched in 2018, it has been a crowd favorite! Charcoal has absorptive powers which allow it to draw other elements into itself. Similar to a magnet, it helps to pull dirt, oil, and other impurities from the skin and what’s not to love about that??

Benefits and Features:
• Formulated with skin-purifying activated charcoal and pure essential oils
• Leaves skin clean, soft, and smooth
• Made without sulfates, phthalates, parabens, dyes, synthetic fragrances, or preservatives
• Vegan and cruelty-free
• Cleanses excess oil without stripping the skin

Essential Rewards

If you’re a budgeter, Essential Rewards is a great way to be able to plan ahead on EXACTLY how much you need and want to spend on dish soaps, hand soap, shampoos, bar soap, skin care, oils etc. Set it up in advance and you don’t have to think about it again! 

With ER, you can change up what you order each month OR you can determine how much money your family has in the budget for cleaning products/wellness/personal products/supplements. Then pick the items that you need every single month that fit within that budget, put that in your ER cart and leave it there and you don’t have to think about it again! Plus it helps to make sure you stay on track! Every month it will be shipped right to your front door without you having to do anything.

Each month you spend $50 or more on ANYTHING you want and then you get points, which is basically YL money, to use towards more YL products. So you can view it as getting products for free OR getting discounted products. 

For example, place a $100 PV Essential Rewards order in your first 3 months and earn $10 dollars back to your account to redeem for free products. The more you order, the more points you can redeem for free Young Living products.

The FIRST THREE months that you are an ER member, you earn 10% back on your ER orders. So if you place a 100PV order, you earn 10pv in points to buy free oils and products, which is like getting everything you buy at 10% off.

Months 4 THROUGH 24 you earn 20% back on your ER orders. So if you place a 100PV order, you will earn 20pv in points to buy free oils and products.That’s like spending $100 for $120 worth of products!

Months 25 AND ONWARD you earn 25% back on your ER orders. So if you place a 100pv order, you will earn 25pv in points to buy free oils and products. So spend $100 for $125 worth of products!

You can then turn around and use the extra points/YL money that you earn, right away. So I will plan out my ER and then usually plan what I will use my points on. We use Lavender in our diffusers around the house, nightly. Instead of having to order Lavender monthly, I get it free every month with points! 

Whether you budget or not, this is all so great to understand because right now we are in unprecedented times where so many of us are having to pay super close attention to what we are spending money on. It is important that we can communicate the benefits of ER and how it IS possible to get high quality products that are good for your family and still stay on a budget!
