Have I mentioned how much I enjoy essential oils? 🙂
And to be completely honest, I really like Young Living essential oils because I have found them to be far more effective than the cheaper brands. One of the perks of being an Essential Rewards member is that I often receive free oils (as well as earning points for free products) … and I want to give away one of those oils to a reader! In fact, I have 2 bottles so I can choose 2 winners!
Each winner will receive a 5ml bottle of Citrus Fresh Vitality essential oil. Why is the word “vitality” in that phrase? Because Young Living’s Vitality essential oils are intended for dietary supplement and culinary use. So not only can you use Citrus Fresh for aromatic benefits (like running it in a diffuser, or placing a few drops somewhere to freshen the air), but you can also ingest it for health benefits.
Citrus Fresh Vitality contains limonene, beta-pinene and linalool. In case you’re wondering what those weird names are, let me share a little information!
- Limonene has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, offering assistance for a variety of metabolic and health problems.
- Beta-pinene is known for anti-depressant, anti-bacterial, cytotoxic (anti-cancer) and anti-microbial properties.
- Linalool – the therapeutic uses for this compound include it being an analgesic, antidepressant, anti-epileptic and anti-inflammatory.
Just imagine – all that in a little bottle of essential oil! My favorite way to take Citrus Fresh is to put a drop in a glass of water, especially a glass of carbonated water! It can also be taken in a capsule or in other liquids.
And one last thing, for anyone who is wondering about the ingredient list for this blend – Citrus Fresh contains orange, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, mandarin orange and spearmint essential oils. The rafflecopter for this giveaway will be at the bottom of this post so please scroll down to enter. Again, we will be randomly selecting two winners, so your chances of getting chosen are better than usual 🙂
A Shining Stars Magazine Update
I have missed being around this site for the past couple months! I miss writing and I miss hearing from our readers. Life has contained a lot of changes lately but YHWH willing, we will be able to start posting again regularly.
One of the biggest changes is that I am stopping the publication of Shining Stars Magazine. There will only be one more issue published, probably in late spring or early summer. You can read all about it on this blog post –
We are accepting submissions now so if you would like to share something for the last issue, please visit our current issue page for information. And if you haven’t seen the most recent issue we published (The Inner Woman), you can order a copy of it here!
Lilla Rose Sale
The one other piece of news I have is that Lilla Rose is currently having a sale on many of their items and offering free shipping on orders over $60.
That red and gold one is called Regina and is actually one of my favorites. I like to wear it often!
The free shipping will be applied once your cart total qualifies so you don’t need a coupon code for that. If you would like to place an order during this sale, can I ask you to do me a favor? It’s actually a favor for a friend! She is currently the hostess for a Lilla Rose party and if you can order through her special party link, there will not be any extra charge for you and it will help her earn credit! So if you’re going to order, please do so through this link: http://www.lillarose.biz/parties/20853. Thank you!
Have any questions? Not sure what size to buy? Feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help out!
Now without further ado, how about you enter to win one of those bottles of Citrus Fresh? 🙂
