Introduction:

20171211_105016
Hello, my name is Julie Reynolds. I’m a Young Living Essential Oil Distributor. I thought I would tell you a bit of my story before I start blogging. I recently bought my starter kit, and was right away excited. I read everything I could get my hands on, and stores lots of recipies in my Pinterest account. The big day came. I got my starter kit. I right away started expirementing with it. Lots of fun!

About the 3rd or 4th week I started to expirement with recipies. I made a face scrub using lavender EO. It felt good. My face started looking good. Then I decided to put the oils in my lotions etc. My skin looked great, the dryness in my arms dissapeared. I finally got more bold, and made my own body wash, face wash, toner, and body, and face lotions using my essential oils, all the while increasing my stash. I love the fact that I can have nice skin without using all kinds of chemicals to get it feeling and looking good. 

I’ve even made some roller top bottles for sleep, breathing support, and others. I’m sleeping better than I’ve slept in a long time. I’m also breathing better through my nose than I can ever remember. Young Living Essential Oils have change me for the better. On this blog, I will share recipies and uses for the oils that have been good for me, and have helped me.

I will be sharing stories about my life, my photography, and my Young Living Essential Oils. Most of what I’m going share will be about my Young Living Essential Oils. I so enjoy doing these three things, and sharing about them.

Sincerely,
Julie Reynolds, Photographer, Oil Lover, and yleo distributor

The New Premium Starter Kit

Hey everyone. New and exciting things happening with the Young Living Starter Kit. I’m so excited to share it with you. This is so amazing. 

The first thing to share would be that the Desert Mist Diffuser is now going to be in the starter kit! I got myself one recently, and I love it. I love the fact that it can run for 10 hours, if I want it to. I also love that it has a light, and it changes colors. It’s pretty when you have it turned on.

The next thing that is changing is one of the oils. They are replacing purification with citrus fresh. I love citrus fresh. It smells wonderful. 

The last change is the replacement of another oil. Instead of RC, which stands for respiratory care, they will give you Raven, which does the same thing RC does. I’m looking forward to this change. 

I just love these changes. If you would like to check out this Kit go to the Young Living Web Site. When you purchase, please use my member number 12906611.

The Woman Who Starved Herself Spiritually 

I wrote this a few years ago, and I thought I would share it with you today.

This is the story of a woman who starved herself spiritually, because she stopped gathering her own manna.

I wont give her a name, I will just call her woman.

Woman was pretty strong in her faith. She read the Bible every day, and prayed throughout every day. She became pretty good at gathering her portion of manna for each day. She was even known to start humming a Christian tune or two when she was working. One day, Woman met someone I will call Man. She fell in love with him, as he did with her.

A year later they found themselves walking down the isle to get married. Up until this point she was very good at gathering her own manna every day. She never missed a day. When Woman and Man got married, she decided to let Man gather her manna for her. The only problem was, Man didn’t know that she was doing this. He gathered enough for himself, and she decided that they could split what he gathered. Things were ok for a while, but they were soon to change.

Woman got pregnant with Son 1. She was happy until Son 1 was born and found out that Man wasn’t going to gather any manna for them anymore. So Woman wondered what to do. Woman decided to do nothing. She thought, “well, if man isn’t going to gather manna anymore then I guess I will just make due with what I have, and stretch it to last me for a while.” This worked for a while

Woman got pregnant with Son 2. Now there were 4 mouths to feed, and the manna was running out. She found out that Son 2 had some developmental problems that she couldn’t fix, which just made things worse. What was she going to do.

Woman started to take what little she had and give it to her children. She soon became very depressed. Now she had nothing, and there was nothing left to give to her children. Woman lost all hope of regaining what she once had. Woman was desperate.One day Woman met Friend. Now Friend was a Christian woman who knew what Woman’s problem was and exactly how to fix it. Friend told Woman to go out and start gathering her own manna. That is how it’s done. Woman is now on her way back out of spiritual starvation, and she would warn anyone who asks. Never stop gathering your own manna. God didn’t intend for you to get your spiritual food through someone else’s labor.

Woman in this story is me. I depended upon my husband for my spiritual growth. When he stopped growing spiritually, and I saw that he was becoming starved, I didn’t know what to do. I became spiritually starved myself. Friend in this story would be my good friend Susie. Thank you Susie for letting God speak through you so that I could see the importance of gathering my own manna, so to speak. I would equate manna to spending time with God in prayer, Bible Study, and praise. I am now on my way back from 16 years of spiritual starvation, and I am truly thankful. God is truly Good…!

Open Our Eyes To God’s Way

We always talk about what God can do for us, and that’s all well and good, but why not think and talk about what God can to through us if we just Open ourselves to him, and let him lead. Many times we want to be in control, and do it our way, or do what We think should be done, without asking Him what should be done, or how he wants it done.

Many times when things don’t go the way we want it to go, we blame God, and say he didn’t do his job, when in fact we were doing a job that wasn’t ours to do in the first place. Many times we get angry with God because he’s not answering our prayers, but we have already envisioned the way in which God is supposed to answer our prayers, and he has a different vision as to how he’s going to answer. We get angry and impatient because we want to see things happen right away, when God is trying to do something even greater that we can’t see.

Let’s open our eyes to what God is doing, and try to see the bigger picture. Let’s not have tunnel vision, and try to put God in a box. When we do that, we limit God. That box is too small for him, and he doesn’t like being put in that box.

Just remember, there are times that what we want may not be the Best that God has for us. What we want is mediocre compared to what God is doing, and what he has for us. Let’s learn to Trust in Him, and to not lean on our own understanding. His ways are greater than our ways, and we may not always understand correctly what he’s doing.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Shower Melts

Today I decided to make something different. I found a recipe for shower melts on Pinterest, and I finally decided to make them today. It didn’t take a lot of time, and I had the ingredients in my kitchen. I used Lavender Essential Oil, corn starch, food coloring, and water. It worked out well. I did get one step out of order though, and I should have mixed to two colors of food coloring before I put it into the mix. That’s why the shower melts look like they have red and blue dots throughout. It was supposed to be purple. Live and learn. I will follow the directions better next time.

NEED:

1 cup Corn starch

5 to 7 drops Lavender Essential Oil

3 to 4 drops of both red and blue food coloring

1 tablespoon water

Mini ice tray

DIRECTIONS:

1. Put corn starch and essential oil into mixing bowl, and mix thoroughly through the corn starch.

2. Add 3 or 4 drops of blue, and 3 to 4 drops of red food coloring. Mix well throughout

3. Add water to the mix. Mix well.

4. Add extra water until you have a thick paste.

5. Put thick paste into the ice tray and press down. Make sure it comes to the top. Mine made about 15.

6. Put in freezer for an hour, or until frozen.

7. Take out of freezer, and remove from ice tray.

This will be something that I enjoy using, mainly because I don’t get many chances to spake in a hot bath with bath salts, or bath bombs. If you would like to order any oils please use my member number when you order] #12906611. Thank you for reading my blog post.
