Ningxia Red Smoothie Recipe

Ningxia Red Smoothies Recipe


2oz Ningxia Red
1 cup homemade yogurt
1 cup fruit-I like peaches and blueberry-the picture above was raspberries and pineapple.
2-4 oz liquid coconut oil
1 avocado
1 banana
2 drops YL lemon essential oil


1. Melt coconut oil. I use hot tap water to run over the CO bottle. Pour into the blender. We use the Vitamix and it really pulverize the ingredients to make them more digestible.

2. Put banana and avocado into the blender and mix very well. The coconut oils will mix with the banana and avocado and will not be clumpy when adding cold ingredients.

3. Add yogurt and fruit and blend well.

4. Add the Ningxia red and lemon oil. Blend well.

5. Pour into glass containers. Must be glass as the oils will eat at the plastic.

6. ENJOY a yummy super healthy smoothie.

Progessence Plus to the rescue

In August and September 2011 I had 2 really early miscarriages. In investigating the cause, I found out I had low progesterone. During the time between ovulation and my period I would take Pro-gest by Emerita just in case of pregnancy since insurance wouldn't cover it unless I got pregnant, not helpful if I couldn't get pregnant in the first place or my body wouldn't sustain it long enough. I hadn't signed up for Young Living yet. I signed up to become a distributor in January 2012 and after hearing testimonials about Progessence Plus by Young Living I researched and realizing some of the symptoms I had were due to low progesterone so I ordered 2 bottles in July. Before starting Progessence Plus, my periods were irregular. They were also more heavy for me then usual. I also had major PMS, unexplained minor anxiety and depression, hot flashes, poor sleep patterns and decrease in libido. I started using it in August 2012 and used it for a week (because my luteal phase was super short). My period actually decrease in heaviness, libido actually started getting better and hot flashes were decreasing. Then in October I didn't use it at all. BIG MISTAKE!!! Boy that month, watch out! Symptoms came back. Then this last cycle I made sure to take the Progessence Plus. So much better. I was calmer with my kids and hubby, hot flashes have stayed away and even feel cool, libido increased, period were regular and less heavy. I wasn't as moody, I was feeling normal. Now I know to keep it in the house.

Symptoms of Low Progesterone:
Pregnancy loss
Mood swings
Appetite changes
Weight changes
Lack of concentration
Frequent menstruation
Irregular menstruation
Low sex drive
PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)
Vaginal dryness
Painful intercourse

Progessence™ Plus serum is formulated for maximum performance. All natural, USP-grade super-micronized progesterone from wild yam is melted in vitamin E and essential oils for optimal absorption. Studies indicate that limonene from frankincense and bergamot and menthol from peppermint oil can enhance substance penetration through the skin. Progessence Plus does not require the cycling of application sites.

Safety with Young Living Essential Oils

There are important guidelines to follow when using essential oils, especially if you are unfamiliar with the oils and their benefits. Many guidelines are listed below. However, no list of do’s and don’ts can ever replace common sense. So, start gradually, and find what works best for you and your family.

Guidelines for Safe Use

1. Always keep a bottle of a pure vegetable oil handy when using essential oils. Vegetable oils dilute essential oils if they cause discomfort or skin irritation (water doesn’t). (I always keep a bottle of unrefined coconut oil in my oils bag.)

2. Keep bottles of essential oils tightly closed and store them in a cool location away from light. If stored properly, essential oils will maintain their potency for many years.

3. Keep essential oils out of reach of children. Treat them as you would any product for therapeutic use. If a child or infant swallows an essential oil: Call a Poison Control Center or seek immediate emergency medical attention if necessary. They may tell you to administer a vegetable oil, milk, cream, yogurt, or other safe, oil-soluble liquid.

4. Essential oils rich in menthol should not be used on the throat or neck area of children under 30 months of age.

5. Wait a day or so after using Angelica, bergamot, grapefruit, lemon, orange, tangerine, or other citrus oils before getting out in the sun.

6. Keep essential oils away from the eye area and never put them directly into ears. Do not handle contact lenses or rub eyes with essential oils on your fingers. Oils with high phenol content—oregano, cinnamon, thyme, clove, lemongrass, and bergamot—may damage contacts and will irritate eyes. Some oils may be painful on mucous membranes unless diluted properly. Immediate dilution is strongly recommended if skin becomes painfully irritated or if oil accidentally gets into eyes. Flushing the area with a vegetable oil should minimize discomfort almost immediately.
DO NOT flush with water! Essential oils are oil soluble, not water soluble. Water will only spread the oils over a larger surface, possibly exacerbating the problem

7. Pregnant women should consult a health care professional when starting any type of health program.

8. Epileptics and those with high blood pressure should consult their health care professional before using essential oils. Use caution with hyssop, fennel, basil, wintergreen/birch, nutmeg, rosemary, peppermint, sage, tarragon, and Idaho tansy oils.

9. People with high blood pressure may want to avoid using sage and rosemary.

10. People with allergies should test a small amount of oil on an area of sensitive skin, such as the inside of the upper arm, before applying the oil on other areas. The bottom of the feet is one of the safest, most effective places to use essential oils.

11. Before taking GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) essential oils internally, dilute one drop of essential oil in one teaspoon of an oil-soluble liquid like honey, olive oil, or milk. Never consume more than a few drops of diluted essential oil per day without the advice of a physician.

12. Do not add undiluted essential oils directly to bath water. Using plain bath gel or Epsom or sea salts as a base for all oils applied to your bath is an excellent way to disperse the oils into the bath water. When essential oils are put directly into bath water without a dispersing agent, they can cause discomfort on sensitive skin because the essential oils float, undiluted, on top of the water.

13. Keep essential oils away from open flames, sparks, or electricity. Some essential oils, including orange, fir, pine, and peppermint are potentially flammable.

14. Skin test an essential oil before using it. Each person’s body is different, so apply oils to a small area first. Apply one oil or blend at a time. When layering oils that are new to you, allow enough time (3 to 5 minutes) for the body to respond before applying a second oil.

15. Read the labels on your oils and research what you’re using. For instance, NEVER take an essential oil internally unless you are certain it is listed as a “supplement” on its label AND that it is a pure, therapeutic grade essential oil.

16. Be careful not to use adulterated or synthetic oils. Some may be toxic. Read more HERE.

17. Do not use peppermint essential on open wounds.

Lemon or Lime Cheesecake

Recipe taken from Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall. Photo mine.

3 eggs-warm to room temp
1/3 c honey
1 c scd yogurt-dripped
2 c dry curd cottage cheese
2 tsp legal vanilla
lemon or lime juice (optional)***


1. Preheat oven to 325*.
2. Bring ingredients up to room temp.
3. In a blender add eggs first for blades to turn freely. Then add the rest of the ingredients.
4. Mix well, stopping to scrap down sides every 15 seconds or so.
5. Grease sides of pan with butter or coconut oil so cheesecake will not stick.
6. Pour mixture in smaller pans, splitting up batter so as to not fill more then half way full. It will rise.
7. Bake for 40 mins or until tops turn a slight brown. Do not open oven during first 30 mins.
8. Take it out of oven and let it cool.
9. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
10. Enjoy.

Notes: When I cooked mine I noticed the center was a little wiggly-that is perfectly fine and actually makes a nice smooth cheesecake in the center but if you overcook it, it becomes dry and crumbly.
After I let it cool, I noticed it was a little watery and just drained it.

***I actually used Young Living Lemon or Lime Essential Oil (only YL-others are not safe to ingest) to flavor it. I used 10 drops and it gave a good flavor-not too strong or weak. But do not eat the whole cheesecake in a few days because lemon is a detoxing oil and you will feel the detox effect if you eat too much of the cheesecake with the oil baked in it. :)

Young Living Frankincense Essential Oil +signup bonus!

Frankincense, or Boswellia carteri, was considered more valuable than gold in ancient times and used to treat every known ill to man. It’s known for it’s antitumoral, immunostimulant, antidepressant, & muscle relaxing benefits. As well as stimulating to the limbic system of the brain and the hypothalamus, pineal, and pituitary glands. It has a sweet, warm, balsamic aroma that is stimulating and elevating to the mind. It has comforting properties that help focus the mind and overcome stress and despair. Frankincense is considered the holy anointing oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. More recently, it has been used in European and American hospitals and is the subject of substantial research. Frankincense is also a valuable ingredient in skin care products for aging and dry skin. The ancient Egyptians used it in rejuvenation face masks.

The Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Israelites and numerous other cultures have used frankincense and myrrh for centuries. Frankincense has traditionally been used medicinally for ages as a remedy for a wide variety of afflictions and ailments, including ulcers, nausea, and fever. The smoke from burning frankincense also acts as an insect repellent, averting most disease-inflicted mosquitoes and reducing the chance of malaria in vulnerable regions.

Young Living Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has a fresh, sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is soothing and refreshing. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it. Lavender is an adaptogen, and therefore can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy. Therapeutic-grade lavender is highly regarded for skin and beauty. It may be used to soothe and cleanse common cuts, bruises, and skin irritations. The French scientist René Gattefossé was among the first to discover these properties when he was severely burned in a laboratory explosion. Lavender may also be used to enhance the flavor of foods. Lavender has an approximate ORAC of 3,669 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter. ~Taken From Young Living website.

Personal Testimony for YL Lavender EO:
My 3 year old son has been waking up from night terrors. He would start screaming and stretching and unstretching and you just couldn't console him. We would ask him if he was in pain and he said no. I remembered that Lavender was used for calming and so I made him smell from the Lavender bottle and 15 mins later he was back to peacefully sleeping. That happened another night. Then the third night I had him sniff the lavender before he fell asleep and no night terrors. The fourth night I forgot to have him sniff the oil and he woke up screaming again. Made him sniff the Lavender and he was sleeping 15 mins later. On the fifth and sixth night I remembered to give him a sniff and I put a drop on his pillow of the Young Living Lavender EO before bed and no screaming. He was even asking to sniff it by then as at first he would run away from the oils. Last night, the seventh night, forgot to have him smell it but there was no more screaming. Hopefully his night terrors are over with and I know that I can use Lavender for him again if needed. AHHH, mama gets to have better sleep too.

The infinite uses of YL Lavender

More uses of YL Lavender:
  • Soothe minor burns by applying 2–3 drops of lavender essential oil to the affected area.
  • Rub lavender essential oil on dry or chapped skin to moisturize the affected area.

Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint (Mentha piperita) has a strong, clean, fresh, minty aroma. One of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for soothing digestion, it may also restore digestive efficiency.* Jean Valnet MD studied peppermint's supportive effect on the liver and respiratory systems. Other scientists have also researched peppermint's role in improving taste and smell when inhaled. Dr. William N. Dember of the University of Cincinnati studied peppermint's ability to improve concentration and mental sharpness. Alan Hirsch MD studied peppermint's ability to directly affect the brain's satiety center, which triggers a sensation of fullness after meals. This powerful essential oil is often diluted before topical application. Peppermint may also be used to enhance the flavor of food and water.~Info taken from youngliving.com

There are many uses of Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil.
Stuffy nose
Flavoring foods
And many more.
It is used also to drive other oils into the skin to heal faster.

My husband loves diffusing it in our bedroom because he loves the smell, kinda addicting for him. I love using it in foods. Peppermint brownies, peppermint chocolate and peppermint tea.
Speaking of Peppermint tea, did you know that it more expensive to buy the standard brand peppermint tea bags about $2.50 per 20 bags which comes out to 12 cents per bag. But using 1 drop of Peppermint oil-$19.75 wholesale for 15ml (contains 250 drops)it comes out to 8 cents per drop. The peppermint essential oil is concentrated so that one drop of oil is about 22 bags of tea.

You can learn more about the Young Living Peppermint Oil HERE and HERE.

You can purchase it separately or it comes in the Everyday Oils start-up distributor kit-along with 8 other oils. If you are interested in sign up as a distributor I have more info HERE.

Young Living Thieves Essential Oil

Thieves® was created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. This proprietary essential oil blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities. It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health.*

I have personally used Thieves internally, diffused and topically when treating colds. It helped with gum issues. I use it in my homemade toothpaste and sore throat spray. It can be used for cleaning, sanitizing, personal care, cold and flu, sore throat, and many other uses.

Ingredients: Clove† (Syzygium aromaticum), lemon† (Citrus limon), cinnamon† (Cinnamomum verum), Eucalyptus radiata† and rosemary† (Rosmarinus officinalis CT 1,8 cineol).

Click HERE and HERE for more information.

You can purchase it separately or it comes in the Everyday Oils start-up distributor kit-along with 8 other oils. If you are interested in sign up as a distributor I have more info HERE.

6T. Baking Soda (aluminum free)
2 tsp. Dr. Bronner’s Baby Mild Liquid Castile Soap (unscented)
4 drops stevia or 1 tsp. xylitol (xylitol is supposed to prevent tooth decay!)
20 drops therapeutic grade peppermint essential oil
1-2 drops therapeutic grade Thieves essential oil blend

If using Xylitol as the sweetener, I mix it with the Castile soap first, so that it has a chance to dissolve. I don’t like my toothpaste to turn out grainy. However, it may be that it would dissolve anyway, I just haven’t taken the chance. Then I mix all the ingredients together with a whisk.

Pour it into a glass jar. Any glass jar will work, even a plain old mason jar; but, a decorative one will make you feel good. :-)


Homemade All Natural Deodorant

Makes enough for one average-sized deodorant roll-up container.

1 heaping T. beeswax pellets
2 1/2 T. coconut oil
1/8 C. arrowroot powder
1/8 C. baking soda
2 drops castor oil
2 drops vitamin E
24 drops of therapeutic grade essential oil of your choice (recommendations below)

The selections are endless. You could choose just single oils (lavender, lemon, melaleuca, sandalwood, frankincense, cinnamon bark, etc.) or Young Living has a number of blends that are perfect for a good deodorant (Thieves, Purification, Citrus Fresh, Three Wise Men, Joy, Harmony, Christmas Spirit, Sensation etc.).

If you want to get creative, you could try to blend a few complementary oils together yourself. Here are a few examples:

English Garden:

19 drops lavender
4 drops ylang ylang drops
1 geranium

Morning Breeze

15 drops Rosemary
5 drops peppermint
4 drops lavender

Only use Young Living therapeutic grade essential oils, since lower quality oils may be toxic. Recipes taken from The Common Scents Mom blog with permission.

Budget purchasing YL essential oils with Essential Rewards

Essential Rewards (ER) is a program that offers discounts and reward points based on your monthly purchases. It is free to join and there is no obligation to continue; you are simply agreeing to purchase at least 50 PV (approx. $50.00) per month of whatever oils or YL products you’d like. And, of course, you’ll want to change your order each month, so that you’re not always getting the same thing – there are so many amazing oils and health products to choose from!

Essential Rewards Benefits

Essential Rewards credits redeemable for FREE products (Even better!)
Months on Essential Rewards Points Earned
Months 1–6 earn 10%

Change your order each month to include whatever products you’d like (minimum 50 PV)
Choose your processing day, and change it whenever you like
Qualify for additional compensation and bonus rewards-Certain bonuses and commissions may require
a minimum of 100 PV.

Using Essential Rewards is a great way to budget so that you can slowly and steadily build your family’s “natural medicine cabinet". Here are some combinations to maintain the 50 PV requirement while spending the least amount but get a variety of oils.

I set this up as if you had purchased the $40 Start Living Distributor Kit in which you will receive Lavender and Peppermint 5 ml essential oils, although I believe the best kit for the value is the Everyday Oils kit where you will receive the 9-5 ml essential oils (plus the 2-5 ml eo's from the Start Living kit) listed in Combos 1-5. You will also receive a $40 off of a diffuser which you must use within 2 months of signup or it expires. I was blessed to purchase the beautiful Aria diffuser using the coupon. But the Home diffuser is what most people go with and I want to purchase that one too. You also receive EO's with the diffusers.

These are distributor prices and the prices are also the point values (PV). There is also shipping and tax that is not included in these prices below. Most if not all are 15ml bottles. If you are building YL as a business then you will need to purchase 100 PV so you can just double it up. These prices are from the Product Price list effective as of July 1st, 2012 but are subject to change.
