There are many people out there suffering from mood disorders. Some are severe and others mild, but they all need to have something to help stabilize their mood. Having to deal with depressive or maniac moods is exhausting and leaves you with no energy to work. Most of these people have to use medications to keep their moods in control. However, hemp oil is an effective way to stabilize mood and has no side effects.
How Hemp oil with CBD Impacts Your Moods
There is evidence that CBD does help in mood stabilization. It helps you control emotions that make your behaviors unpredictable. This oil does this by interacting with the endocannabinoid system or ECS.
ECS is connected to several functions in the body including mood, pain, appetite, and sleep. It works with other receptors and cannabinoids to give your body the right balance. Cannabinoids are produced in the body naturally, and they allow ECS work and communicate with its receptors and the results are excellent body homeostasis. With good health, you can sleep better and wake up with a good mood.
Hemp oil with CBD cannot cure feelings of sadness, but it does help in easing it. The endocannabinoid system is found in the human body and it’s a network of molecules and cell receptors that regulate your sleep, mood and appetite.
CBD interacts with this system and enables it to bind with some receptor in the brain leading to the production of serotonin. This is the neurochemical that helps to improve moods and overcome daily stressors.
CBD may help to reduce occassional stress naturally by providing a calming effect. It works almost instantly and the only drawback is that you may have to use it a few times a day for optimal results. However, this is nothing compared to the benefits.
Your mood determines the quality of your sleep. If you are feeling disturbed and unsettled, you will definitely struggle to get restful sleep. CBD helps to alleviate all these symptoms and give you some peace of mind allowing your body to relax and enjoy rest.

More and more people realize that a good diet should be balanced. Apples, bananas and salad – they are all very healthy, but also boring. The goal should not be to eat only fruits, but to make your diet complete and varied. We have looked more closely at the question of what constitutes a healthy diet. In this short article, you will discover seven points which you should consider in a balanced diet.
Say goodbye to the notion that certain foods are prohibited. Consuming the full variety of foods is a good idea as long as you pay attention to their nutrients and energy content. Your choice should consist of an appropriate quantity and combination of nutrient-rich and low-energy foods. If possible, you should not eat too many pre-prepared foods or fast food.
2. Cereal products
Bread, noodles, potatoes and rice are indispensable to our diet. And that is also good, because they are rich in vitamins, fiber and minerals. If they are made of whole grain, it is all the better. It is best to combine these foods with low-fat ingredients.
3. Vegetables and fruit
You have probably heard that many nutrition centers recommend eating 3 servings of veggies and 2 servings of fruit every day. What exactly you eat is left to your preference. A serving can also be a glass of freshly squeezed juice. A good rule of thumb is to eat a portion of fruit or vegetables at each meal. So you have the food of the five portions easily integrated into your daily routine.
Fish contains many valuable nutrients and is, therefore, perfect in terms of meat. If you still prefer a different kind of meat, we recommend lean pieces of poultry, pork, veal or beef.
5. Less fat
Stick to vegetable oils and fats. Keep in mind that fat is often included in many other products. A total of 60-80 grams of fat per day is sufficient.
Good food is often not enough. It is necessary that you move regularly. The recommendation is 30 to 60 minutes of sports per day. Use the stairs instead of the elevator, walk short distances on foot or ride a bike – all of this will help you, while, at the same time, protecting the environment.
7. Lots of water
And above all is water. Drinking 1.5 to 2 liters of water per day will cover your bodily needs. Very sugary drinks promote weight gain in the long term and should be avoided. Alcohol should not be consumed excessively.
Full of excitement about essential oils but don’t know where to start? Realizing that there are hundreds of options to choose from can feel overwhelming, but don’t worry! We have the quickest shortcut to essential oil expertise.
What essential oils are good for beginners?
Starter kits are carefully curated to include essential oils that are perfect for newbies, like Peppermint essential oil and Lemon essential oil. These 12 common oils come in most kits and are great if you’re just starting your collection!
Essential oils are highly versatile. You can use them for everything from pampering yourself with an at-home spa day to deep cleaning your kitchen. Wondering how to get started? Check out the tips for starter kit oils below!
Lavender essential oil
As a classic, top-selling oil, Lavender belongs in every collection! This gentle scent can be used at bedtime by adding it to a night cream or putting a drop on your wrists before cuddling up for the night.
Frankincense essential oil
Frankincense is a powerful oil with a warm, earthy scent. Frankly, we love it! It’s a favorite to use during spiritual practices—simply put a few drops in your diffuser to enjoy its welcoming scent. You can also boost your skin care routine by diluting essential oils like Frankincense with a daily cleanser or moisturizer.
Valor essential oil blend
Strong and sweet, this oil blend has a unique, bright-blue hue, courtesy of Blue Tansy essential oil. Put this blend in your diffuser at work or rub it into wrists at the start of an important day.

PanAway essential oil blend
Add this brisk, chilly blend to carrier oils like V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex or coconut oil to use during a soothing massage for tired muscles. Looking to destress after a long day?

Stress Away essential oil blend
Stress Away will give you serious vacation vibes! This blend’s mix of Lime, Vanilla, and Lavender makes it easy to imagine reclining on a beach chair by the ocean. Whisk yourself away during traffic by applying this oil blend to the back of your neck. Set up for an A+ homework session by putting a few drops into your diffuser!
Raven essential oil blend
The cool and minty scent of this blend makes for a sweetly scented chest rub. Simply add a drop to a little bit of coconut oil and rub it into the chest area. Do a little DIY aromatherapy by adding a few drops on a washcloth and placing it to the side of your shower. The hot water and steam will infuse Raven’s bright, brisk aroma into the air.

Everyone is saying that you should eat a diet high in antioxidants. The easiest way to do that… NingXia Red. This class will cover all the amazing benefits of Ningxia Red and give you tips, tricks, and recipes for making it a part of your family’s daily regimen.
place of origin
Residents of the Ningxia region of northern China, where the wolfberry grows, have been enjoying the incredible wellness-supporting benefits of the wolfberry that grows in the area for thousands of years.
Luckily we get to use them in our NingXia Red products due to the amazing relationship Gary Young built with the people there. After discovering Ningxia wolfberries to be one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, Gary became convinced that this superfruit needed to be made available to the world. This is how our beloved Ningxia Red was born.
Young Living has a Seed to Seal promise that ensures you are getting the best oils and products sent to your home.
Their farms and partner farms abide by strict standards.
They select the strongest seeds from strong thriving plants.

In addition to the beneficial vitamins and minerals mentioned before, NingXia wolfberry contains a ton of amino acids including the essential amino acids L-arginine and L-glutamine. The combo of these two offers many health benefits. A quick google search and you can see for yourself! Sure you can eat some shiitake mushrooms to get your L-arginine, but wouldn’t you rather take a shot of NingXia Red with a yummy berry taste? And just to be clear, NingXia Red has more L-arginine than shiitake mushrooms!
Add a drop of your favorite oils from the Vitality line to your NR shot… Thieves Vitality, Copaiba Vitality, Orange Vitality and Frankincense Vitality are among our member’s top picks!

1 can of NingXia Zyng
1 packet of NingXia NITRO
1-2 oz. NingXia Red
Mix these three ingredients into a glass with ice, stir, and enjoy!
NingXia NITRO is 20ml of healthy, natural ingredients that support your health and keep you focused. With naturally occurring caffeine, it will help you stay energized without the crash. NingXia Zyng is a light, sparkling beverage with 35 mg of naturally occurring caffeine and only 35 calories! You can always enjoy these individually, but together they are magic!
The NingXia Wolfberry is also a complex carbohydrate, which means your blood sugar will rise slowly, reducing the risk of a sugar crash afterward. This is one reason why this energy drink is a much better alternative than conventional gas-station energy drinks that are filled with junk and catapult you into a sugar high and end with a post-sugar crash.

Food cravings make life difficult – just when we have planned to lose weight, we seem to feel the urge to take a look at the fridge. In simple activities, we place some snacks before us, and bang – the chips bag is suddenly empty. Time for a little self-control!
If you want to take food more consciously and, thereby, lose weight, you should learn to curb your appetite and eat less. This does not mean that you are going to suffer from feeling hungry, but that you will simply change small habits in your everyday life. With the next 7 tips, it won’t be so hard to eat less.
1. Do not go shopping hungry
You have heard this tip many times because it makes sense. In a hungry state, our body thirsts for all things that are tasty and, unfortunately, this is not limited to our favorite biscuits or vegetables. So just go to the supermarket to get only the most needed items (best with a shopping list).
2. Eat smaller portions
If there is a lot of food on our plate, we feel compelled to eat everything, especially when it is particularly delicious. In order to eat less, you only have to get smaller portions – try not to cheat!
3. Do not eat in front of the TV
Even as children, mom often left us with a delicious snack in front of the TV, and, as adults, we continue this tradition. It is so convenient to watch your favorite series with food on your lap. Unfortunately, this is a mistake, because, when we eat in front of the TV, our brain focuses mainly on what we see and hardly perceives what we eat. The sensation of saturation occurs much later. So, when you eat, concentrate on your meal only.
4. Eat more fiber
Foods with a lot of dietary fiber do not only fill you up faster, but are also good for digestion. Nuts, whole-grain products or legumes are good snacks, just like fruits and vegetables, in order to combat the heat of starvation and, thus, to eat less. However, be careful not to overdo it with these foods, because, otherwise, constipation may occur.
5. Avoid all-you-can-eat buffets
This tip is self-explanatory. Fully packed tables, which present us with endlessly many delicious dishes definitely looks so tempting. Although such buffets can save money, they are not at all useful for our purposes.
6. Avoid food containing flavor enhancers
Products that contain flavor enhancers such as glutamate (E 621) or inosinate (E 630) stimulate the appetite a lot. That’s why we want to keep eating. So, when shopping, do not buy products where taste enhancers are listed in the ingredients list.
7. Chew more consciously
Do not cut your food down, but chew it more intensely and slower. By soaking the food with enough saliva, you can ensure good digestion, and the nutrients will be absorbed more easily. In addition, a feeling of saturation becomes faster and you eat less – faster weight loss guaranteed.
With a little discipline, you can easily change your eating and shopping habits. Eating less and more deliberately, that is what matters. This way, you can definitely lose weight without having to give up too much.

Man’s best friend. Doggo. Pupper. Colonel Princess Fluffernugget. Whatever you call your canine companion, your dog is an important member of the family. It makes total sense that you’d want to share your favorite essential oils with your four-legged friend.
How do I apply essential oils to my dog? Is diffusing oils safe for dogs? What essential oils are good for dogs’ itchy skin? What essential oils can I use with my dog? If these questions sound familiar, you’re barking up the right tree!
Grab your furry BFF and get comfy—we’re about to share the ultimate guide on essential oils for dogs.
How do I apply essential oils to my dog?
First and most important: Dogs are highly sensitive to essential oils. What smells like the faintest hint of Lavender to you might smell like 100 acres of lavender botanicals to little Beethoven. Gradually introduce oils by using them on yourself first. Acting as a human diffuser keeps all those new scents from overpowering your pup.
If you’re the proud owner of new puppy, patience is a virtue. Fur reals. Avoid using topical oils on newborn dogs. For medium- or large-breed puppies, wait until they’re over 8 weeks old. For toy or small-breed puppies, wait until they are over 10 weeks old.
Once you start applying essential oils, pay close attention to Lulu’s behavior. Remember, she wants to be near you and will stay by your side even if she’s feeling uncomfortable. Contrary to popular animated films, pets can’t tell us if something is working or not. Please exercise caution—use oils on that loveable lapdog safely and responsibly.
Should I consult a vet?
YES. Note the caps—we’re super serious about this one. If your dog is pregnant, nursing, or has a medical condition, consult a vet knowledgeable in essential oils prior to use. The following are general recommendations for use. If your pet has a known health issue, please consult your veterinarian before administering essential oils. If your vet suggests other usage, defer to those recommendations. Even if your dog is healthy as a horse, please consult a vet to ensure that there aren’t any underlying issues.
When you’re ready to give Teddy some essential oil TLC, topical application is the way to go. But before you apply, dilute those drops! And remember, size matters. Dilute 1 drop of essential oil to 4 drops of V-6™ for small to medium dogs; 1 drop of oil to 3 drops V-6 for large dogs.
Speaking of dilution, did you know that our Animal Scents® oils come prediluted? Even though they’re not as potent, you’ll want to ease into using them by adding 1 drop of the Animal Scents oil to 1 drop of carrier oil. If your dog tolerates it well, you can try it without diluting.
When you’re ready to give it a try, rub the oil and carrier oil between your palms until your hands are no longer shiny. Rub over your pet’s back, on the belly, and behind the ears. Take extra care to avoid the eyes!
Here are a few more ideas for topical application:
Try Animal Scents Ointment or KidScents® Tender Tush* on dry or irritated skin or to soothe the occasional scrape or burn.
Use Seedlings® Wipes* to wipe off paws and clean ears instead of the petrochemical-based wipes from the store.
Apply Seedlings Diaper Rash Cream* on warm, irritated areas you want to keep dry.
Is diffusing safe for dogs?
Yes! You’ll want to diffuse in small doses—small amounts of oil for shorter periods of time—to help your darling Daisy get used to the scent. Again, pay close attention to how your dog acts with the new aroma. If she seems uncomfortable, use fewer drops or do away with the diffusing entirely.
What essential oils can I use with my dog?
Animal lovers, rejoice! We created Young Living’s Animal Scents line with your pets in mind. The oils in this collection are prediluted and formulated without synthetic perfumes, dyes, and artificial colors and fragrances. Because they’re paws-itively perfect, you can feel confident using them on and around your animal sidekicks.
You can also feel all kinds of warm fuzzies when using Animal Scents products on your fluffy friends. A portion of the proceeds from the line supports Vital Ground, a nonprofit dedicated to protecting the habitat of grizzly bears and other wide-roaming wildlife.

Rub her back and belly and scratch behind the ears.
You should prepare yourself for an extra dose of doggy kisses. All that attention’s gonna get you a whole lot of extra love!
Which essential oils should you be extra careful using on dogs?
Dogs seem to be sensitive to the high levels and/or combination of certain constituents in the following oils, so we highly caution their use. Dilute these oils heavily and watch your dog for a reaction:
Bioavailability refers to the amount of a given nutrient found in supplements, food or medication that is absorbed and actively used for the biological activity of your cells and tissues. Despite this, bioavailability is often overlooked when it comes to comparing supplement brands.
The determinants of the absorption of supplements into your bloodstream include: nutrition form, time of the day taken, the body’s nutritional needs and the level of absorption of the uterine wall. All these influence the level of bioavailability.
Absorption of Nutrients
Not all the nutrients that you consume will be absorbed and enter your bloodstream. The body can only use a portion that it takes in. Vitamins and minerals have varying bioavailability this can be due to its source, as well as other foods you ate during the meal or how the food is cooked.
After absorption, the number of nutrients retained depend on the needs of your body. This is determined by sex, age, health and the number of nutrients already in your body. The nutritional needs of a young boy and an old man are very different.
Keeping track of your nutrients and minerals
You don’t have to stress about how you are going to keep track of your vitamins with a calculator because you don’t have to. First, make sure to eat a balanced diet. Introduce variety to all your meals including dairy foods, fruits, and vegetables.
Second, avoid popular diet trends because this deprives the body of nutrients that it may need. Eliminating some beneficial interactions among nutrients can amplify negative ones.
Lastly, first try to get your nutrients from whole foods instead of relying only on supplements. Although supplements help with dietary gaps, the nutrients from food are the most important.
There is a huge difference between supplement brands. Regular store-bought supplements tend to yield a much lower absorption rate than premium supplements (another you get what you pay for example). Young Living supplements have an 80% absorption rate compared to conventional supplements, which only have a 30% absorption rate! That is a whopping 50% increase! This tells me you get way more bang for your buck and the supplements will be that much more effective! ⠀ ⠀ The difference in these supplements is in their bioavailability and their essential oil content. Dr. Gary Young was the first to formulate nutritional supplements with essential oils. Essential oils infused into a supplement make the nutrients and vitamins more bioavailable in the body. This means the body can absorb them and use them as nutrients.⠀ ⠀ Are you wondering how it works? Essential oils help increase the assimilation (absorption) of other nutrients on a cellular level and they help remove waste from the cells, which helps detoxify them, in turn causing the cells to function at a higher level!⠀ ⠀ So… The bottom line is that you should 100% be taking Young Living’s supplements over your store bought ones! Start making the switch with an easy one like your Probiotic and get that into your Essential Rewards cart stat!⠀
Old Man Winters’ arrival doesn’t mean that the Winter garden can be neglected. Keeping the garden on an even footing against the ravages that winter can bring is an ongoing. Neglecting proper garden closing chores and winter maintenance tasks is only a recipe for a headache in the spring. Follow a few of these winter garden tips and a bountiful spring will be waiting in a few months time.
Setting the winter garden table
An interesting to look at and healthy winter garden depends upon taking steps in the late fall or early winter. Clean up the garden. Make sure that any garden trash is picked up before the snow flies. If this “trash” is left behind it presents an opportunity for bacteria to find its way into any cuts in the plant or onto the plants roots. Bacteria growth, and possible disease, on the plant is the biggest danger to a winter garden.
Watch out for color when trimming
If you have had your garden for at least one winter season you know what has color during winter and what does not. Trim this color judiciously looking for maverick branches, but be sure to keep the overall form of the shrub so that winter color can shine in a uniform way. If you are not sure, leave it alone and get a feel for what has winter color for next winter. If a shrub has a winter bud on it, leave it be as this is where the flower will come from next spring.
Trim out the cut or torn limbs
Chances are that a torn or cut (looks like a knife cutting into an apple about an eight of an inch deep) limb will end up dangling, or on the ground, as winter progresses. Take care of it early and your garden will look sturdy and ready for whatever the winter has to offer. Look for a nodule on the limb (looks like a knuckle of sorts) and cut about one quarter of an inch above it on an angle for a proper cut.
Weed to a clean ground
Weeds also present a messy problem through the winter. Not only will they decay and offer disease potential, they will also continue to grow their roots until the ground freezes hard. This will only make them more invasive in the spring. Besides, if you weed to a clean ground you will have a nice clean contrast to the dormant plants in the garden.
A nice clean edge
Unless you are going for a more informal look, give a nice edge job to your garden flower beds before the ground freezes. Not only will this make for a crisp look during the winter months, as the edge freezes, but it will put you one step closer to a solid start in spring.
To wrap or not to wrap
If you look at many winter gardens you may notice that people have wrapped burlap or some other material around their evergreen shrubs. Generally, this is to prevent a snow load or high wind from damaging the plant. Unless you have the potential for a snow load or predictable high winds this is not necessarily needed. The wind issue is an issue, but remember that all plants need air circulation, no matter what type of plant they may be. If you wrap a shrub/plant to tightly air circulation will diminish and present the opportunity for moisture build up and disease. If you wrap your shrubs make sure to do it securely but with air circulation in mind.
It cannot hurt to mound
Mounding around the base of a plant is intended to give the root systems of a shrub/plant a little extra insulation during hard winters. Depending upon which zone you happen to be gardening in the need for mounding rises and falls. In any case, you want to make sure that you compress the dirt of the mound with a firm push of the hands. This gets some of the air out of the mound and generally makes a mound of dirt look a bit nicer. It also shows that you took a little care in your gardening. This sometimes impresses people that visit your winter garden.
Trees are plants too
Take a few moments to assess your trees before the winter winds start to howl. Look for any branches that may have grown old, look to be growing across the desired vertical path of a properly trimmed tree or have died during the season. What you are looking for is any limb or branch that may rub constantly on another opening a wound in the bark. Generally, you would not want to cut a branch as winter approaches, or during the winter months, but sometimes you need to.

Mind Over Matter
Before we dive into the products, we must talk about mindset. When you start on a journey to better health, it is uber important that the thoughts you think and the words you speak line up with the outcome you wish to achieve.
If you are like me, you probably have said “I need to lose weight” time and time again. What I didn’t realize was that when you speak of something being ‘lost’, the mind automatically begins to search for ways to find what is ‘lost’. I don’t know about you, but I definitely DON’T want my mind looking for ways to find weight!
When you use the words ‘want’ or ‘need’, it signifies lack or being without. It speaks to limitation and not having a choice. But you DO have a choice! Every decision, every change begins with a choice. You will feel more empowered, more in control, and more equipped to tackle this lifestyle change when you make the CHOICE to do it and you start consciously shifting your thoughts and words.
Repeat after me:
“I choose to make better choices.”
“I have the ability to take care of my body.”
“I deserve to be healthy!”
Can you feel the shift in energy?
Now that you have made the CHOICE to better your health, let’s take a look at some tools that will make this journey easier. Young Living’s Slique line can help you manage your weight, create feelings of satiety, and provide nutritional support when combined with proper diet and exercise.
A ‘Slique in 60 Satisfaction Guarantee’ is even available for Slique Kits. If you’re unsatisfied at the end of the trial period, Young Living will give you a product credit equal to the amount of your purchase. That’s incredible! For full details on the guarantee, click here.
*For most Slique products: if you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult a health professional prior to use.
Now let’s take a closer look at the individual products within the Slique line. Slique Essence is a blend that contains Grapefruit, Tangerine, Lemon, Spearmint, and Ocotea. These all work together to help control hunger. #praisehands
Slique Essence can be used as a tasty addition to a hot cup of Slique Tea or as an extra splash of flavor in your water (which you should be drinking plenty of!). The addition of Spearmint can also aid in digestion, while the stevia gives it a hint of sweetness without the calories. #winwin
Usage: Add 2-4 drops to 4-6 oz. of your favorite beverage, Slique Tea, or water. Use as needed throughout the day whenever hungry.
This vegan-friendly meal replacement shake is formulated with Slique Essence (the blend we just talked about), making it very satisfying so you won’t reach for that chocolate bar later in the day. The high protein content also helps maintain lean muscle mass.
Slique Shake’s berry flavor is delicious mixed with almond milk or fruit (in a smoothie). It contains no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or GMO ingredients. Instead, Slique Shake is naturally sweetened with Stevia, organic coconut palm sugar, wolfberries, and strawberries. The formula also includes pea protein, quinoa, wolfberry, pumpkin seed protein, and alfalfa grass juice, making it an excellent source of dietary fiber and extra tasty! Slique Shake also includes a fruit and vegetable blend that provides essential vitamins and minerals that many meal replacement options don’t offer.
Usage: Just replace a meal every day with one shake! Easy enough, right?

Oh my goodness, that sounds like a drink fit for royalty. Well, adjust your crown, my friend, because it can be yours.
Slique Tea is a great alternative to sugary drinks and sodas thanks to its natural ingredients that help support individual weight goals. The jade oolong tea leaves are handpicked from the high mountain regions of Taiwan, and are sought after for their rich aroma and powerful antioxidant content. The Ocotea leaf was traditionally used by natives for health and wellness. This unique blend is then enhanced with Sacred Frankincense powder…. and you know what Frankincense can do, right? If not — look it up! This drink is delicious hot or cold when you start to crave something naughty.
