    When your schedule is filled with helping and taking care of everyone else, it’s easy to forget about your own needs. Thankfully, it only takes a few steps to create a night that’s all your own! Our three tips will help you plan a much-deserved night to yourself.

    Step 1: Plan Ahead

    Treat Yourself - Plan AheadYou’ve heard it before—fail to plan, plan to fail! Taking time to care for yourself is no different. Pencil your special night into your calendar and treat it like the priority it is. You wouldn’t cancel on a friend in need, so give yourself the same respect.

    After you have it booked, make any necessary arrangements. Get a sitter for the kids or have your spouse take them out for a few hours. Take care of household to-dos and grab any special treats you need, whether it be a new book or some indulgent snacks. Try your best to eliminate as many distractions as possible so you can focus on just yourself for the night.

    Step 2: Set the Scene

    Treat Yourself - Set The SceneWhile everyone’s perfect pampering looks different, the goal is to create the environment that’s most relaxing for you. A great place to start is playing calming music, dimming the lights, lighting candles, and diffusing your favorite essential oil or blend.

    Want to really indulge? Invest in a new diffuser to make your experience extra spa-like. Choose a simple and chic style like the Dewdrop™ or Bamboo™ Diffuser, pick up the luxurious Aria™ Ultrasonic Diffuser, or look through all our diffusers to find your perfect match. Whichever diffuser you use, it’s just as important that you diffuse the perfect aroma during your relaxing night. We’re fans of classics such as Lavender, German Chamomile, Cedarwood, Jasmine, and Ylang Ylang.

    Add even more luxury with some wholesome, indulgent treats. Create a platter of your favorite snacks, and don’t forget some fun drinks! We love pairing Zyng™ with Vitality™ essential oils to create a refreshing, light option. Pour your custom cocktail into a stemmed glass to make the night feel extra special.

    Step 3: Relax!

    Once your prep work is done, it’s time to treat yourself! Settle in with a good book, a TV show you’ve been wanting to catch up on, or a favorite hobby. Need some help planning the perfect night? Check out our ideas below, all infused with the goodness of essential oils.

    Spa Bath Treatment

    Treat Yourself - Spa TreatmentUnwind in a spa-like atmosphere from the comfort of your home. We love bath bonuses like face masks, bath salts, a captivating book, bath gel, and body lotion.

    Tip: Apply body lotion to damp skin to lock in moisture.

    Our top picks:

    DIY Lavender-Oatmeal Bath Soak
    Evening Peace Bath & Shower Gel
    Lavender Hand & Body Lotion
    Relaxing Facial

    Treat Yourself - Relaxing FacialGet an at-home facial in just four steps! The basis of beautiful skin starts with a cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer, and you can add some extra oomph with a gentle exfoliator. With the additional attention, you’ll experience beyond-skin-deep pampering.

    Tip: Try a DIY stress-reducing facial massage.

    With your eyes closed, massage the sides of your jaw in large, circular motions. Create a path past the sides of your mouth, along your nostrils, and over your cheekbones. Eventually move to your forehead and temples. Tension accumulates in this area, so spend some extra time here. For about one minute, work from both temples to the middle of your forehead and back to the temples.

    Our top picks:

    ART Skin Care System
    ART Renewal Serum
    Satin Facial Scrub, Mint
    Pedicure Pick-Me-Up

    Treat Yourself - PedicureFeel great from your head to your toes. A DIY pedicure is easy, and it can save you a trip to the salon. Plus, a little time spent on a pedicure keeps your feet looking great for days or weeks!

    Tip: Take a look at our Three Simple Steps to Fab Feet blog for ideas to exfoliate, moisturize, and pamper your feet.

    Our top picks:

    V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex
    Bergamot Essential Oil
    Tea Tree Essential Oil

    An Oil Cleanse to Keep Your Skin Timeless-Looking

    An Oil Cleanse to Keep Your Skin Timeless-Looking

    Wrinkles are not the only sign of aging that visibly add years to our face; sagging skin, age spots, and dull skin tone also reveal the passage of time. And when we rush through our routines, skipping the steps necessary for caring for our skin, we can end up with unhealthy-looking skin.

    Maintaining a cleaning regimen that removes makeup and dirt from skin can help keep the look of healthy skin long past youth. This year, renew your efforts to care for your skin’s natural beauty and keep it looking timeless with this simple cleanse!

    Skin Care Boost

    Essential oils can be great for gently cleansing the skin, whatever your skin type!

    Cleanse Recipe:

    1. Start with a good cleansing base oil and pour ¼ cup into a clean glass bowl. We suggest:

    All Skin Types For Oily Skin For Dry or Maturing Skin
    Olive Jojoba Avocado
    Sunflower Sweet Almond Apricot Kernel
    Tamanu Grapeseed Argan

    2. Add 1–3 drops of one or more of the essential oils listed below:

    All Skin Types For Oily Skin For Dry or Maturing Skin
    Lavender Oil Bergamot Oil Myrrh Oil
    Geranium Oil Helichrysum Oil Rose Oil
    Frankincense Oil
    Clary Sage Oil
    Royal Hawaiian™ Sandalwood Oil


    Open pores by rinsing your face with warm water.
    With upward rotations, massage oil mixture all over face for 1–2 minutes.
    Leave mixture on face for 1 minute.
    Saturate a clean washcloth with warm water.
    Place towel on face and leave for 15–30 seconds.
    Slowly and gently wipe off oil.

    Repeat steps 5–7 until your face feels clean.

    Your skin will love an oil cleanse anywhere from twice a day to once a week, depending on how your skin responds.
    If your skin still needs a little extra care—maybe a toner, moisturizer, or serum—we recommend any of the products from our ART® line. This skin care line is a great way to maintain your natural beauty.

    Everything You Need To Know About Iodine

    Everything you need to know about iodine

    Iodine is a necessary mineral that your body can’t produce itself. It must be consumed from an outside source through food or an iodine supplement. The USDA recommends that most adults consume 150 micrograms of iodine per day, and pregnant and nursing women should consume about twice that much.

    An iodine deficiency is not something to take lightly. If you’re not getting enough, it can pose a risk to your health. Pregnant women need to be especially proactive about meeting their daily requirement. Just a few decades ago, so many Americans were iodine deficient that as part of a public health initiative, many U.S. salt companies began adding iodine to their salt. When you go to the supermarket today, most salt packaging says: This salt contains iodine, a necessary nutrient. With the new trend of low-sodium diets, however, many people are saying no to salt and are looking for other options to meet their daily iodine quota.

    The best food source for iodine is seaweed. Yes, that green aquatic plant that makes you cringe when it brushes against you while swimming but tastes fantastic when wrapped around a ball of rice and fish. This food source blows all others out of the water (pun intended), with well more than 100 percent of your daily need in just 1/8 of an ounce. But sushi and seaweed paper aren’t for everyone. Many people find its fishy taste overwhelming and even downright off-putting.

    So what do you do if seaweed makes you queasy? You could try turning to other foods. Runners-up are animal-based foods like codfish and yogurt. But you’d have to consume much larger quantities of these to get enough each day, nearly 45 times more codfish (3 ounces) and 51 times more yogurt (8 ounces) than seaweed.

    Young Living - NingXia NitroDon’t panic! We know these numbers are discouraging. Fortunately, there’s another option that takes seaweed and measuring cups of out the equation: Young Living’s NingXia Nitro®! Just one small tube contains 75 mcg of pure iodine, that’s 50 percent of the recommended daily value for an adult. With NingXia Nitro, you don’t have to worry about using food scales or consuming fishy aquatic plants and animal products. It’s as easy as grabbing and squeezing! You’ll also enjoy the benefits of pure essential oils, botanical extracts, D-ribose, Korean ginseng, and green tea extract, not to mention a great wolfberry taste! Find out more about this YL favorite on the NingXia Nitro product page.

    Interview: Melissa Poepping

    Living by Design: an Interview with Melissa Poepping

    Melissa Poepping is a Young Living Crown Diamond who lives on a busy little hobby farm in central Minnesota with her husband and three children. They have been using essential oils since 1998 and began using oils in their everyday lives in 2005 after welcoming their first child to the family. Essential oils have found the way into every aspect of their daily lives and into every corner of their home.

    Melissa recently hosted her annual Spirit of Wellness Event in St. Cloud, Minnesota, where more than 600 members were in attendance and raised $31,000 for the D. Gary Young Foundation. After witnessing the enormous impact Melissa has on those around her, we wanted to spend a few minutes with her to learn more about her journey with Young Living.
    How did essential oils make an impact on you and your career?
    I was working 70–75 hours a week as a mortgage broker for 10 years in an intense, high-stress environment. I took the work and the stress home with me every day, and it started taking a toll on me physically and emotionally. A friend introduced me to essential oils, and I began to implement them into my daily life. After the birth of my first child in 2005, I realized I couldn’t leave her and go back to work. I became acutely aware of everything in our home and sought out ways to create the best possible environment for her. As I began to use more Young Living oils and products in my home, I felt an emotional connection. I realized I could provide income for my family while doing something I loved and believed in.

    What was the greatest challenge you faced as you started your business?
    My own fears were my greatest obstacle. For the first few years after my daughter’s birth, I tried a variety of work-at-home jobs. In the summer of 2010, I took a leap of faith and decided to give Young Living 100 percent of my time and eliminated everything else. I had to step out in faith and face my fears. As soon as I let go and trusted, my whole way of thinking changed. When my focus was solely on making money, I struggled and found myself stuck. So I began imagining myself having financial freedom and asking myself, “How would a Diamond do this?” That’s when everything began to change.

    Where many would find defeat in challenge, I found opportunity. It’s nothing short of breathtaking what happens when you begin to realize and achieve new visions, new goals, and new dreams by believing in your highest potential. In November 2014, four short years after I focused completely on Young Living, I reached Crown Diamond. I found that I have the ability to create my own future, and circumstances do not define me. I eagerly share my story with others and take great joy in seeing them achieve their goals.

    What has being part of Young Living done for your family?
    Being part of Young Living allows my husband, Wayne, and I to raise our three children, be present in every moment, and live life as a family free of many common worries. I have the opportunity to educate others and share my journey with them, with the flexibility to do it without missing out on my children’s lives. This is an opportunity I never would have had in my prior career, and I am grateful every day to be there for my family. I can also empower other moms to do the same for their families, which motivates and recharges me. I thrive on motivating women to step out of their comfort zone to achieve their goals and still be able to play a vital role in their families.

    With all that you have already accomplished, what keeps you motivated to achieve more?
    What I believe in is simple: I believe that at the core of each and every one of us is the desire to accomplish great things, the dream to achieve more than we thought possible, and the determination to leave this world better than the day we found it. I believe that we have a responsibility to impact generations to come and an obligation to show others how to duplicate our foundation. I believe that this is how you leave a legacy.
     “I believe our circumstances in life do not determine our success. Anyone can live their life by design.”by Melissa Poepping
