Eye on Supplements – Life9 Probiotics

Life9 is superb Probiotic Supplement. I first started to take it few years ago when I had digestive issues. It soon improved and I could see my skin getting better as well as my bloating going down. My favorite company, when it comes to wellness and health, Young Living, has several amazing supplements and I want to shed light on them one by one.

Why should we take probiotics?

1/ Helps maintain healthy microbiome – in today’s diet, there is too much sugar and other unhealthy ingredients and our gut health suffers

2/ Supports immunity – can you believe that 80% of your immunity lies in your gut?

3/ Supports nutrients absorption. No matter how healthy you might eat, if your body cannot absorb the nutrients, it goes away too quickly.

4/ Maintains your mood – happy gut, happy brain! Yes it’s true!

5/ Supports Healthy Weight Management

6/ Freshens Breath – healthy Microbiome also means better breath

7/ Reduces fatigue – fatigue is often sign of bad digestion.

8/ improves your skin – our skin really shows the state of our guts. Bad digestion shows up quickly with breakouts. Maintaining healthy gut means maintaining healthy skin

So what solution does Young Living Offer? LIFE 9!

Life 9 is a proprietary combination of 9 friendly bacteria strains that are essential to support a healthy system.

Life 5 has been a great product that is very beneficial, so we wanted to create an even more robust formula that will better withstand shipping to international markets. Life 9 features 17 billion live cultures representing 9 different bacteria strains.

Includes 9 bacteria strains to support a healthy system:

1 Lactobacillus acidophilus

2 Bifidobacterium lactis

3 Lactobacillus plantarum

4 Lactobacillus rhamnosus

5 Lactobacillus salivarius

6 Streptococcus thermophilus

7 Bifidobacterium breve

8 Bifidobacterium bifidum

9 Bifidobacterium longum

Laundry Much???

I don’t always do laundry but when I do…. oh who am I kidding? I do laundry ALL THE TIME! Family of three, nine year old kid, there is always laundry!

But did you know that how you wash your clothes, what’s in your laundry detergent, influences your health? Your detergent might smell amazing, but it might be the reason why your skin is irritated. Fragrances, preservatives, dyes, and other chemicals in laundry detergent can cause rashes in both children and adults. Laundry detergents contain lots of potentially irritating ingredients. And because your entire body comes in contact with your laundry, you can have reaction all over. Hmmm. Not me. Why?

Few years back I decided to be more careful what I use for our family. As a mother and wife, it is my responsibility to choose the right products we use at home. And I take it seriously.

So I decided to join Young Living Company and go as much toxic chemicals free as possible. No fabric softener and “clean” Laundry soap was part of the whole Ditch&Switch process.

Watch video how I made my Laundry Soap and Stain Remover Spray and recipes are below

https://youtu.be/ynbNKci2r7c

Today I would like to share my recipe for Stain Spray and Liquid Laundry Detergent. Not only both of them are non toxic, they are also very effective, can be done in a minute and very cost effective. Instead of Fabric softener, I add white vinegar to my load and use Wool Dryer Balls with Essential oils for beautiful smell.

Stain Spray

Ingredients

100 ml of peroxide

50 ml of Thieves Dish Soap

1 capful of Thieves Household Cleaner.

Mix together in sprayer bottle and use as needed. When spraying the stain, let it work for about 2-3 min before you wash.

Cost breakdown

Peroxide 99¥, Thieves Dish Soap 292 and 52¥ for Thieves Household Cleaner. So your amazingly smelling, non toxic stain spray costs you 443¥ !!! That’s nothing comparing to about 1300¥ for store bought stain removers that are full of dangerous ingredients.

(500 ml of peroxide costs 494¥, Thieves Dish soap costs 2133¥ for 365 ml and Thieves Household Cleaner costs 3402¥ for 426 ml)

Laundry Detergent

Ingredients

1/4 cup of washing Soda

1/4 cup of baking Soda

3.5 l of hot water

1/4 cup of Thieves Laundry Soap

2 capfuls of Thieves Household cleaner

First, dissolve the washing soda and the baking soda in the hot water. Mix well. Then add the Thieves Laundry Soap and Thieves Household Cleaner and again moc well. Voila, your detergent is ready!

Cost breakdown

Washing soda 68¥, Baking Soda 15¥, Thieves Laundry Soap 588¥ and Thieves Household Cleaner is 104¥. Making this 775 per 3.5 l of detergent. It makes 27¥ per load if I use approx 1/4 cup of the mixture!!!

(Washing soda costs 990¥ per 726 g, Baking Soda is 1858 per 6 kg, Thieves Laundry Soap is 4455¥ per 946 ml, Thieves Household Cleaner is 3402¥ for 426 ml.

All prices are calculated with members price. Retail price is more so it’s very beneficial to become a member.

Oh Skin So Smooth

We all know that amazing feeling after Spa treatment when your skin feels and smells so good, you just want to keep sniffing your own arms😂😂😂

I love to replicate that feeling as much as possible so I create my own skin products from the finest ingredients. Only the best, right? Body Butter is one of my specialities. I have been hunting for the perfect texture for a while now. And I finally achieved it. That merengue like texture that stays soft even when it gets colder. So what did I use?

The ingredients are simple but bare in mind my recipe makes about ten 200 ml jars of Body Butter so if you’re making just for yourself, you have to do the math. But why not give Oily gifts to your loved ones instead of buying things from stores?

Smooth Skin Body Butter

500 g of Pure Shea Butter

250 g of Organic Coconut Oil

200 ml of Pure Jojoba Oil

30 drops of Young Living Lavender Essential Oil

30 drops of Young Living Elemi Essential Oil

In a double boiler, first melt the Shea Butter as that takes the longest. Once almost melted, add the Coconut oil. When completely melted, take off the double boiler and add the Jojoba Oil. Mix well together so the ingredients combine

Let it harden. This was a challenge this time around because even though it’s November, the day was very warm and my mixture was not getting hard enough even hours after. I had to remove few things from my fridge and put the bowl there.

Once your mixture hardens, start whipping, using a mixer. I love my Kitchen Aid, because it does the job perfectly and I don’t have to hold it.

Getting the right stiffness of the mixture before you start whipping is crucial. If you let it harden too much, it won’t be smooth enough. Trust me, I’ve made that mistake once or twice.

At this point, add your essential oils. This time I chose Lavender and Elemi. At the end of this post I will explain why I chose these two oils.

placeholder://

After you added the essential oils, keep whipping for about 3-4 min. Scrape the sides of the bowl and whip some more. You want thick, smooth texture. Transfer in sterilized jars and close the lids.

So why did I use Lavender and Elemi Essential oils?

I love Lavender for my skin. It is very calming and has amazing scent. Not only that, it has proven antimicrobial properties, meaning it helps to prevent bacteria and fungi to grow. So when applied on skin, it helps with itchiness and may prevent infections. It is also used as a home remedy for burns and skin inflammation. I use Lavender after sun exposure because it helps my skin to recover. And I always have it handy when I’m ironing😜. Lavender helps with many different skin issues and is baby friendly, so you can use it for whole family.

Elemi is another very calming, beautifully smelling oil. It has great healing properties. When diffused, it helps relieve stress and anxiety. Using Elemi helps boost immunity system and supports respiratory health. For skin, it has calming and healing effects and acts as a tonic for our body.

So combination of these two essential oils in this Butter butter makes a beautiful, calming mixture.

Naturally, I only use and recommend Young Living Essential oils. I made a blog post about it so you can read it or send me a message and I’ll explain the Why’s

For The Love Of Salads

I love food, there is no doubt about it. I often wake up with something particular on my mind and I rush to the kitchen to make it.

That day I woke up wanting salad. But not just any salad. I knew I wanted cauliflower in it for the crunchiness and coriander avocado combo for the flavor. Hmmmm, what dressing? My eyes fell on some grapefruits and I knew what I’m gonna make!

So I grabbed all the ingredients (half an iceberg lettuce, cucumber, mixed salad leaves, coriander, avocado, few tomatoes and 1/4 cauliflower and just chopped it all

Putting everything in a bowl and setting aside, I got on making the dressing

In a separate bowl I mashed together slice of red and white grapefruit and few cubes of pineapple with spoon of olive oil.

I mashed it really well to get as much juice out of it as possible, then added 1 drop of Young Living Black Pepper Essential oil and 2 drops of Young Living Lime Essential Oil.

I love adding Essential oils to my food. They taste great and give my food extra layer of flavors. I could have used Grapefruit Essential oil instead of the fruit but I wanted the juice as well, not just the flavor, so this time I opted using the fruit. Also, I bought precut fruit bowl and I wanted to use it up.

Adding Essential Oils to food has many benefits, it has amazing flavor but also benefits our digestion. I love the flavor of Black Pepper Essential oil. It’s my go to for most of my dressings.

After mixing it really well together, I added some salt and poured it over the salad, tossing all together.

And then I just sat in my garden and enjoyed the beautiful weather and delicious salad. Oh yum!
