Love those fine lines? Those gut issues?

Let me ask you…
Would you like to reduce the appearance of those fine lines and wrinkles in a little as 3 weeks??
Want to strengthen your skin, hair and nails from the inside out?
Are you looking for a bioavailable, tasteless, prebiotic fiber that balances your gut microbiome…and is free from all the artificial fillers, flavors, colors and sweeteners??
Yes? Well, then, let me introduce you to Inner Beauty Collagen…free with your eligible order through Jan. 31, but available to order anytime!

Collagen is THE protein of your body. It's the most abundant protein and is the crucial support piece for your hair, skin, nails, joints, muscles and gut lining. Collagen also helps with melatonin levels (your natural sleep hormone!), antioxidant levels (so important for overall health and longevity), and a healthy liver. Unfortunately, collagen levels decrease as you get older (starting as early as age 25!), but as it decreases, we actually need it the most (joint needs, skin and hair trouble, brittle nails, etc.). As you age your natural collagen also becomes more fragmented and fragile, so it doesn't hold up as well as it used to. Because of this, adding a high-quality collagen supplement to your health routine is a great way to help your body replenish collagen levels and promote its own collagen production.

I am loving it. I had brain surgery over 17yrs ago and the left side of my face has been swollen since from cartilage & scar tissue. (I'm assuming).  The swelling has gone down tremendously. My face has got thinner and the lines on my forehead, which wasn't a lot, but they have lightened up. I really don't think the left side of my face from my surgery will ever go away but if it's inflammation or swelling whatever it is with it just going down, I am so thankful for because that is one of my insecurities. - Angel L.

I am on Day 24. I have noticed a difference in my forehead lines. I have also noticed a difference in the softness of my skin especially on my hands—I wish I had taken pictures of my hands at the beginning. - Noelle M.

I can already see more even skin tone and less wrinkles around my eyes. And my skin over all is less dry. And I would have to say my pores on my face seem smaller - Janell R.
My hair is growing so long and so fast!!! - Katie F.

Cozy winter beverages


Winter is a season for comfort foods and drinks, and adding oils is a great way to increase health benefits at the same time...for all recipes. Simply heat all ingredients, except the oils, in a pot over the stove, until just hot. Don't boil. Remove from heat, add the oils and stir to combine. Serve in your favorite mugs and top as desired. Easy peasy!

Oils, flames, candles, hot beverages and what if your oils freeze...

Hey, hey, my friend!! Thought we'd learn together from Dr. David Stewart’s The Chemistry of Essential Oils  Made Simple, and talk flames, candles, hot beverages and what if your oils freeze…
You already know that the temp inside your car on a hot day won’t damage your YL oils, but the heat of a candle will damage any oil. We are talking about 300-400F, which is well above distillation temps, and causes much of the oil to decompose or even burn completely.
Diffusers that work by putting oils on a ceramic or metal tray with a candle flame or other heat source underneath will vaporize some of the oil intact, but will actually destroy most of it, including any therapeutic value it had. You may get a smell, but you won’t get much therapy. Let candles and flames be recreational aromatherapy, not a means for serious healing. If you want to fill a room with a smell and candle light, burn scentless candles while diffusing your favorite oils,  or grab some battery operated candles. My answer?? The Lantern diffuser on candle flicker mode, right??

When it comes to fire, you should also keep in mind that all essential oils will burn. They are not explosive or highly flammable, but in the presence of a flame, they can catch fire. They become dangerously flammable only if they have been diluted with an alcohol, like methanol, ethanol or propanol as is done in some countries like Taiwan. Another reason it is so important to know your source and the purity of your oils...
So, what about using oils in your favorite drinks? I love using them in all my drinks! I use grapefruit and lime, vitality of course, daily, and now that tea and cocoa season is coming back around, we will be using the peppermint, orange, lemon, cinnamon, clove and others…
Remember, one drop of oil can represent the concentrated essence of a large volume of leaves or plant matter. It has been said that a drop of peppermint equals the flavoring potency of more than 20 peppermint tea bags…that's more than a box of tea bags in most use it sparingly! You can always add more…but you can’t take it out…

But the question we are answering is if the heat of your tea or other hot drink will destroy the qualities of the oils and the answer is no. The rule is simply that if it is not too hot for you to drink, then it is not too hot for the oil either. However, when you add oils to a beverage in a pot heating over your stove, try not to let it come to a boil, but don’t worry if you forget and let it boil, just drink it anyway. No harm done.

Using oils in your drinks benefits your digestive tract; you get to enjoy the flavor and smell; and they are absorbed directly into the sensitive tissues that line your mouth as well as through your nose, going straight to your lungs, brain and emotional center. This time of year is a perfect time to add a drop of cinnamon or cassia vitality to your hot apple cider…you can thank me later…
Always make sure the oil you want to use is GRAS – generally regarded as safe – for internal use. Read labels or look at your desk reference. Common sense and moderation are key. The white vitality labels make it super easy, but not all oils that are safe for consumption are in our vitality line yet, so hop on google or grab your desk reference and look them up!
We’ve talked heat. Now let’s look at cold. If you live in Maine like I do, some of your oils are delivered in the freezing cold of winter and have been outside in the back of an unheated truck all day. I have received some that are a little thicker than usual or even partially frozen. 
No worries! Even in the extreme, cold never hurt any oil, regardless of whether it is essential, expressed, absolute or a carrier blend. If your oils are ever chilled to the freezing point, don't apply any heat to thaw them out. Just keep the lids on and let them warm up gradually to room temp and they will be just fine!
