Happy New Year to each of you!

There’s just something great about starting a new year! A fresh start, a new beginning, new ideas, turning a new leaf and setting new goals!

The down side is some make New Year’s “Resolutions” that quickly fade because it gets hard, the new wears off and it hasn’t turned into a new habit or a life change just yet. The gym goes from being packed in January to back to the regular crowd by March.

If we aren’t diligent, disciplined and determined our old habits resurface and we lose our enthusiasm and drive to reach our goals.

So how can we keep moving toward our goals? How do we make a change that will stick?

We have all heard set SMART Goals, find an accountability partner, track your progress and many other proven ways to best reach your goals.  Today I want to throw something out there that you may not know that could make a big difference for you.

Young Living has produced over 80 blends that have been specifically formulated after years of research for both physical and emotional health.  Each essential oil blend is created to maximize the synergistic effect between various chemistries and harmonic frequencies of single oils we love.

Each single essential oil is chosen for its individual properties, fragrant influence, and historical data and how it can contribute to the specific purpose of the blend. According to the Essential Oils Desk Reference, 6th edition, “When chemistry and frequency coincide, noticeable physical, spiritual and emotional benefits can be attained.“ Pretty amazing if you ask me!

There are so many blends to discover! Abundance, Believe, Envision, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Inspiration, Harmony, Into the Future, Live with Passion, Motivation and Present Time just to name a few.

I thought I would highlight a few here but be sure to look into what blends would be good for you to try this year!


Gratitude: A blend that is designed to elevate, soothe and bring relief to the body while helping to foster a grateful attitude. The New Testament tell us that on one occasion, Christ healed 10 lepers (Luke 17:12-19), but only one returned to express his thanks. This blend embodies the spirit of the grateful leper.

Into the Future: Blend of 10 essential oils that helps one leave the past behind in order to progress with vision and excitement. Instead of settling for mediocrity and sacrificing your success because you are scared of the unknown, use this blend to inspire determination and strong emotional feelings of being able to reach your potential.

Motivation: This oil blend stimulates feeling of action and accomplishment. By including oils that combat restlessness, tension and insomnia (Roman Chamomile), open emotional blocks (Spruce), brings balance and restores confidence (Ylang Ylang) it may provide positive energy to help overcome feelings of fear and procrastination.

Transformation: Repressed trauma and tragedy may be out of sight now but our memories are imprinted in our cells whether good or bad. Stored negative emotions need to be replaced with joy, hope and courage. Transformation blend contains oils that purify like Lemon and Peppermint along with Sandalwood, which stimulates the part in our brain that is the center of our emotions. It also has Idaho Blue Spruce, which is grounding, stimulating to the mind and relaxing to the body among several oils that together empower uplift and help uphold the changes you want to make.

Present Time: A blend of Almond oil, Neroli, Spruce and Ylang Ylang that creates a sense of being in the moment. Being in the present time is the key to progressing and moving forward. Almond oil used as carrier oil but is considered a nutrient for the brain and nervous system. Neroli is stabilizing and strengthening to the emotions, promoting peace, confidence and awareness. Spruce opens and releases emotional blocks, fostering a sense of balancer and grounding. Ylang Ylang promotes relaxation, balances male and female energies, restores confidence and equilibrium and promotes restful sleep.

Sending you abundant blessings in all you do in 2016!
