Wishing you an essential Christmas | Essências Natalícias

I've always found Essential oils fascinating but never fully understood how they work. When I first heard about their benefits, I immediately wanted to find more, and delved into a whole new world.
My adventure took off in June 2016, when I got my Young Living Premium Starter Kit. And now I am excited to share with you how powerful, and how well the oils work in our bodies, just like food nutrients do. Although it may sound like a super trendy topic, people have been using essential oils for thousands of years! For instance, they were used in ancient Egypt, and they are also mentioned in the Bible.
But the oils journey may be overwhelming at first, and we seldom feel fully prepared to take the step. The first decision I had to make was where I was going to get the oils. Although there are so many places where we can buy essential oils, those by the Young Living stood out. Essential oils sold in most health food stores are fragranced oils, and while they might smell good, they don't offer the same therapeutic and medicinal benefits. Some may have an essential oil base but most probably contain additives, fillers, and synthetics to increase volume or fragrance, whereas, pure essential oils contain nothing more, nothing less than all the required therapeutic compounds. 
Young Living is a trusted source and a pioneer in taking the use of therapeutic oils to homes. Millions of people around the globe have discovered the benefits of these amazing oils, and I immediately fell for the support and the community that I found when I started my new adventure with Young Living.

I am more than happy to guide you in your journey and help you to learn more. It’s been the best decision I made in the last few years, and I haven't regretted once, as I could write a long list of "whys" and how this company changes lives.

Os óleos essenciais sempre me fascinaram, embora até há uns anos não tivesse compreendido completamente como funcionavam. Ouvia falar nos seus benefícios e sempre procurei saber mais antes de me dedicar a esse mundo novo.
Em Junho de 2016, dei início à minha aventura com o kit de iniciação Premium da Young Living e é com entusiasmo que agora o partilho consigo! Os óleos essenciais são potentes e actuam no nosso organismo da mesma maneira que os nutrientes dos alimentos.
Embora seja um tema muito na moda hoje em dia, o uso dos óleos essenciais remonta há milhares de anos! Os Egípcios utilizavam-nos para fins medicinais. Há também diversas referências na Bíblia. 
Mas a inciação à Aromaterapia pode ser um processo confuso, para o qual raramente nos sentimos totalmente preparados. A primeira decisão que tive de tomar foi, onde arranjar os óleos. Há diversos sítios onde podemos adquiri-los, mas os da Young Living acabaram por se destacar. Embora cheirem bem, os óleos essenciais que encontramos na maioria das lojas não oferecem qualquer benefício terapêutico. Alguns poderão até conter uma base de óleo essencial, mas misturada com aditivos e produtos sintécticos para aumentar o volume ou o aroma. Por seu lado, os óleos essenciais puros contêm todos os componentes terapêuticos e nada mais. 
Para além do fascínio que me causou a forma de levar óleos essenciais a todo o mundo, divulgando de forma inovadora os benefícios destes maravilhosos óleos em milhões de casas, esta nova aventura deixou-me rendida ao apoio e à oportunidade de poder fazer parte de uma comunidade como a Young Living.

Terei todo o gosto em guiá-lo no seu novo percurso, desvendando e ajudando a saber mais, uma vez que essa foi a melhor decisão que tomei nos últimos anos e não me arrependi nem uma única vez. Poderia escrever aqui uma longa lista dos “porquês” e de como esta empresa muda vidas.
Este mês, até ao final do ano, tenho algo especial para quem decidir começar com um Kit de iniciação Premium até ao dia 31 de Dezembro comigo!

Espuma para as mãos Christmas Spirit
Inscrevendo-se como membro, para além do Kit de iniciação, levará consigo uma caixa com 11 óleos essenciais, um difusor, e outros acessórios. Desfrutará ainda de:

• 24% de desconto em todas as suas compras futuras.
• Uma garrafa de espuma para as mãos Christmas Spirit 
• Oferta de uma aplicação no telemóvel (em inglês) - The Reference Guide for Essential Oils para os que se inscreverem também no programa de ponto Essential Rewards.
Contacte-me se quiser saber mais. Boas festas! 


We've made it to Silver Retreat

We've made it to Silver Retreat
When I first become a Young Living Member, I was so excited by all the oils, the scents, benefits and properties, little did I knew that one day, I would be invited to one of their retreats. 

A few years later, there I was, with a friend from my team,  and as well as 2200 members from other parts of the world joining the same event in Salt Lake City, Utah. 
So grateful to be part of this celebration and meet so many amazing people. Attending panels with incredible speakers, seeing the beautiful Young Living farm, and making friends with crossline members. We learnt so much in just a few days.

Sharing some moments of our experience.  
Macau --> Hong Kong --> San Francisco --> Utah --> San Francisco --> Hong Kong --> Macau

First stop - San Francisco

We missed the connecting flight from San Francisco to Utah, so it was a good opportunity to visit a new city!

8 Hours under this beautiful blue sky and hot weather!

Behind us, sea lions chilling.
Day 1 - Welcome dinner - Utah
Day 2 - Registration & Product Expo

In love with the Nature's Ultra CBD line, so powerful, no wonder everyone is talking about it. I will write a post about my experience with some of these products soon. They totally blew my mind!

Gala Dinner

The Young Living Foundation -  D. Gary Young started the Foundation in 2009. The main focus is to carry out social solidarity projects in countries such as Uganda, Nepal, Cambodia, Equador, where people receive far too little attention and empower individuals to positively affect their families and communities for years to come. Everyone can get involved in many ways, those who are Young Living members can round up their orders.
Day 3 - Farm Day
Whispering Springs Farm—Mona, Utah, USA

I honestly feel privileged to have had the opportunity to visit the farm. The Mona lavender fields and farm span nearly 1,600 acres, and the location is home to one of the largest privately-owned essential oil distilleries in the world. Isn't that beautiful?

We were able to have a first-hand experience of Seed to Seal, excellence is the heart of Young Living’s industry. Young Living farms stand apart in the essential oil industry and set the standard for Seed to Seal (planting, growing, harvesting, distilling) to ensure we receive the best quality essential oils in our home.
Farm Fairies paid a visit to our rooms. Everyone got a bottle of Juniper Essential oil
Day 4 - Training Sessions
Education is the key to success!
We learnt so much in just a few days. 
A Healthy Farewell Party
Instead of alcohol, drink Ningxia!

Visiting the Young Living Farm soon

In a few days, I will be in Salt Lake City Utah, visiting the Young Living Farm and I will be able to have a first-hand experience of Seed to Seal, that is at the heart of Young Living’s industry excellence. 

This farm grows botanicals such as lavender, peppermint, clary sage, and others for distillation into their pure essential oils that you are all familiar with.  

It will be a 4 days visit, with hundreds of other YL members from all around the world, such as Malaysia, Equador, Mexico, Australia, Singapore, Hong-Kong, etc all-expenses-paid trip to Young Living headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah.

This will be the annual Young Living Silver Retreat 2019 event, open to all YL members, all, including you!! It’s a recognition and training event for those who have achieved the rank of Silver. 

I am proud to have helped hundreds of families bring essential oils and other Young Living products into their homes to help them live healthier lives. I am truly grateful for this opportunity, I’ve never thought I would ever be able to achieve it, all I did was share my enthusiasm and excitement for the oils. You know how much I love Peppermint essential oil and have said it a thousand times.  It was my life saviour for my work as a Pole instructor, for some of my students and myself.
Then the amazing blends and single oils, that I use for relaxing muscles, sleeping better, emotional balance, relaxation, concentration etc., Thieves household cleaner smells like Christmas and leaves my home clean and fresh without any yucky chemicals; it is safe for my family and my cats. The list goes on. In the last couple of years, not only we are now living in a much healthier and cleaner environment, but I now find myself packing for my trip to Utah. So excited! 

If I could make it to Silver, any of you can too. Keep using and sharing, the oils speak for themselves, they are amazing, all you have to do is use them. They are the purest form of the plant, they contain constituents that are very powerful and able to provide rapid benefits!!

Before you reach for personal care products at the supermarket or pharmacy, why not try a healthier and more natural alternative first.

June, July and August mean summer travelling and vacations. Whether you planned a long vacation with the family by the sea or a weekend city break just for the two of you, special moments should make lasting memories, and you want to be prepared for any new environment you are going to be in.

With a lot to pack and to think about, I prepared 8 must-haves Young Living products for each of the 3 most common types of Summer vacations for this time of the year. Young Living makes wonderful plant-based and toxin-free products, so if you haven’t tried out yet, now is a great time! Most of these products have essential oils in them and I use them all year round, but I selected a few must-haves for the summertime. If you are not familiar with essential oils, I suggest you start with a Premium Starter Kit (you can learn more about it here: 
Live healthier with natural, safe alternatives).
