Breathing, we all do it - and, at times, we may have a harder time than others keeping our lungs, throat and sinuses in optimum health. Essential oils, whether applied directly to skin, inhaled, or diffused with a cold air diffuser, can be very effective in supporting respiratory health.
I'm in Santa Barbara, where several homes have burned down in one of the largest wildfires in California history. Residents here are encouraged to wear N-95 masks, and not sweep up or come into contact with soot and ash that's fallen like snow across sidewalks and yards.
Like many others, I had a sore throat, itchy eyes and was fatigued. Here are some of the essential oils that I've been using to keep from being overcome by soot and smoke in the air:
R.C. This blend which includes eucalyptus, pine, marjoram, lavender and peppermint will make you want to breathe deeper. I apply one drop in the palm of my hand, rub my hands together, tent over my nose and inhale.... really soothing on the lungs and sinuses (and R.C. comes in your Premium Starter Kit available at AromaThrive.com)
Peppermint is a very versatile essential oil - it can remind you of holidays past, candy canes, or peppermint cocoa. It can also clear a stuffy nose. I always have peppermint in my purse, and will lick one drop after meals to freshen breath. Peppermint is another oil that comes in the Premium Starter Kit available at AromaThrive.com
Raven Blends wintergreen, peppermint and Ravintsara, lemon and eucalyptus for a more powerful support for upper respiratory problems or viral infections. Super strong
Ravintsara is a powerful antiviral, antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-infectious oil which may help open and strengthen the respiratory system. Its fresh scent reminds me of yoga!
You can support wellness and a strong respiratory system regardless of which oil you choose. Diffusing these nature's essences in your living space is a gentle way to kill bacteria and germs while promoting calm and wellness.
In addition to the essential oils, Young Living also makes eo-infused products such as Thieves cough drops and Thieves mouth wash, both which can soothe a scratchy throat.
Vitamins and supplements, along with eating right, exercise and rest, play a big part in a wellness routine. And, not all supplements are created equal!
That's why I shop at AromaThrive.com for my vitamins and wellness products. Young Living oversees all steps of production of their quality vitamins and supplements to Super B, Super C, MultiGreens, as well as OmegaGize (omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin D-3 and coQ10), as well as immune supporting products such as Inner Defense and Longevity softgels.
The bonus of using this brand of products is that the supplements are infused with pure essential oils, which offer added support of anti-aging, immune support and more.
The vitamins and supplements I take daily include Longevity (love it for my radiant skin and anti-aging benefits!), Multi Greens, Super B, Super C, as well as the Life 9 probiotic in the evening. Oh, and a shot of Ningxia Red each morning gets my day going in the right way!

Essential oils have been used to support health since ancient times. Young Living has made a science out of essential oils, in developing a pain cream, and a sunscreen - free of toxins and harmful chemicals.
The Cool Azul Pain Cream and Minerals Sunscreen Lotion were introduced at this year's Grand Convention. They are FDA approved (that's why they can use the descriptive words 'pain cream' and 'sunscreen').
I don't know about you - but, I hesitated to slather on chemical based sunscreens because I didn't want the yuck soaking into my skin. Now, I don't have to worry.

When I first started using essential oils, I loved the fragrance but had no idea how powerful they could be for digestive support. I was happy to learn about the Digize essential oil blend, taking a drop on my tongue, or rubbing two drops on my belly soothed that bloated feeling. Now, this is one oil that I always have on hand. Once I started combining the Digize with Young Living's other digestive support supplements - my tummy felt a lot better - and, today I wouldn't be without them. Here are my top recommendations for digestive support:
Digest & Cleanse - (when I need a little extra help!)
You may be mindful of shopping for organic healthy foods, and using supplements, but if your digestion isn't up to par your body won't be absorbing the nutrients you are eating. Good digestive health is a foundation of overall wellness.
