The Lemondae Diet/Master Cleanse and my Young Living Oils That Are Literally Keeping Me Going

Ahhh, yes, the dreaded "Lemonade Diet". That's what I thought for years. Why would you NOT eat for up to 10 days (many go longer than 10 days). HOW do you physically NOT eat for that long and why in your ever loving mind would one do such a thing?

My thoughts exactly....until August 18, 2019.

I'm doing this cleanse because:
~I had a wicked awesome summer and drank and ate way too much (word)
~I need to eliminate toxins, my body just feels blah
~I need to cleanse my digestive tract and reboot my digestive system
~I want to purify my glands and cells
~I want to feel good
~I want to shed a bit of weight

I had read "Inner Transformations Using Essential Oils" by Dr. Leanne Dearduff and Dr. David Deardeuff for a Toxin Free Living class I had with a few of my Young Living friends last year. I spoke on liver cleansing and different supplements to support this process. It was fascinating. In this book where I learned of liver cleansing, was a chapter on cleansing the digestive tract. They talked about "The Master Cleanse".  It's a total body cleanse and helps pull toxins from not only the liver but other organs, joints, skin, lymph, muscles and flushes out mucus. Stanley Burroughs created this cleanse and believed one should not take any supplements on the cleanse. Now, this was before essential oils were made readily available to people and many people have since found that certain Young Living products can support you during this cleanse. 
On August 18th I sat at a table with new Young Living friends who were on the same retreat as I was for obtaining the rank of Gold with Young Living (shout out to all you Gold leaders rocking your businesses!!!!). The Master Cleanse came up as my new friend Kelly had completed it just a few months before. She had everyone's attention at the table, including mine. She told us how this cleanse lead to a complete mind shift for her. She let go of emotional road blocks, an unhealthy relationship with food,  and realized her addition to coffee was unhealthy for her body.  She told me she was so angry at the control that caffeine had over her body during the Master Cleanse,  she vowed never to drink it again after the withdraw she went through on her cleanse. Kelly said it was freeing. The cleanse changed her life. She also said "and we have essential oils to support us!".

She said that the cleanse is more taxing on your mind than your body. Constantly thinking about eating or getting in your own head about whether you can complete this or not. We have oils to support our emotions and help release feellings of worry or anger. We have oils to help calm and ground us when we feel overwhelmed. And you need alot of rest on this cleanse so we have oils to help support a good night's sleep as well!

My oils have been my security blanket during these past 3 days. I'm actuallly very surprised at the lack of hunger pains I have. Smelling food doesn't even bother me. I actually really enjoy drinking the "Lemondae" for the cleanse. The Salt Water Flush in the morning is freak'n crazy but super satisfying to me! I don't think I'd do the Master Cleanse without my oils to be honest. They are the reason I've gotten to day 3 feeling perfectly fine. So if you've ever considered a cleanse, do your research, join an accountability group for that cleanse, get a support system and get some oils ya'll.  

I'm using:
Valor (all the Valor)
Believe (because yes I can do this)
White Angelica (to help calm my thoughts)
Clove (for aches and pains)
Panaway (to rub on my muscles)
Celebration (It's a celebration bitches! Every day, I put a drop of Celebration on my crown head)
Ocotea (I love diffusing this if I get any food cravings or just want to smell something sweet becasue I can't eat)
Rutavala (When you need to sleep, you need Rutavala)
Release (I apply Release over my liver to release emotions)
Lemon+ (I add 2 drops of Lemon in my Salt Water Flush in the mornings)
Peppermint+ ( I have a cup of Peppermint tea before bed-warm water and 2 drops Peppermint )
ICP (I take 2 tsp of ICP along with 2 capsules of Comforcleanse before bed as a natural laxative)
ComforCleanse (these capsules help pull toxins away from the walls of my digestive tract. They contain bentonite which I love)

It's time to switch things up....

Bring the Freshness of Spring into Your Home with 3 Diffuser Blends You Can Try This Week!

Bring the Freshness of Spring into Your Home with 3 Diffuser Blends You Can Try This Week!

Happy April, 

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the air has that fresh scent of spring! What if you could bring that scent indoors to not only freshen your home but also improve your health at the same time?

I love diffusing scents like Lavender, Geranium, and Bergamot this time of year. Not only does it clean the air in my home after a long winter, but it also supports my mood and emotions, creating a positive, uplifting atmosphere!

Diffusing essential oils is a great way to bring the outdoors in and allows you to remove harmful candles and air fresheners from your home. Essential oils not only make your space smell amazing, but they have added health benefits as well!
When you diffuse or inhale essential oils, they go directly to the emotional center of your brain, making them perfect for shifting your mood. Use your oils to feel happy, calm, inspired, and refreshed and create an aroma to perfectly match the scent of the season!
Here are some recipes perfect for spring :

Fresh & Clean
4 drops Citrus Fresh
3 drops Lemon

Relax & Refreshed
4 drops Stress Away
2 drops Lemon

Breath of Fresh Air
4 drops Raven
2 drops Peppermint

Use This, Not That!

Use This, Not That!

Use This, Not That!

 I want to focus on just how easy it can be to take those Small Steps that will equal BIG Changes!!  It really can be as simple as Use This, Not That! The thing I gotta emphasize, is that you're not spending more money with Young Living. You're simply choosing a few products that you want to ditch in your home and replace with plant based, toxin free ones. Young Living does not equal more $. It equals small steps to a better lifestyle.
Have you ever heard of Bioaccumulation??  Here is a quick little science lesson, if you will.  Bioaccumulation is “when a harmful substance gets absorbed by an organism (your body) at a higher rate than it can be excreted.”  When we are constantly exposing our bodies to the harmful chemicals found in our everyday products, they are accumulating at a faster rate than our bodies can get rid of them. We can oftentimes be exposed to up to 300 different chemicals a day, and most of us don’t even realize it! How can your body thrive when it is exposed to so many toxins? #ITCAN'T
Consider making the switch! Start slow . . . identify those products you use most often and use the Young Living product instead that is infused with essential oils and is actually working with your body to support your overall health and wellness! Here are some switches you may want to make first:
  • Household cleaners ~ Thieves Household Cleaner 
  • Toothpaste ~ Thieves Aromabright, Dentarome, or Dentarome Ultra 
  • Makeup ~ Savvy Minerals Makeup
  • Shampoo/Conditioner ~  Lavender Mint or Copaiba Vanilla
  • Candles~Diffusing Young Living Essential Oils

Here we go-It's 2019, look busy!
