My Oily Anniversary

My social media reminded me October is my oily anniversary, so I want to recap how I started, why and what these past 4 years gave me.

2015, my son was in kindergarten, the last year and I was just bracing myself for Fall/Winter season. This is always the most dreadful time for all parents. The sniffles, constantly running nose, cough and flu. Even if your kid is healthy, he is bound to catch something from other kids in his class. The previous two years in kindy he had it all and I was looking for advice and possible solutions

My friend just started with Young Living and when she heard me complaining, she recommended Thieves Blend to help. She is somebody I really trust so I gave it a try and signed up with Young Living. At the time, the Premium Starter Kit in Japan was different and didn’t have the oils I wanted so I opted for Basic Starter Kit and oils of my choice. When the package arrived, I immediately opened Lavender and sniffed it…. it was love at first sight. I put the roller fitment on the bottle and carried the bottle on me 24/7. It’s helped me relax, feel better, it helped me ease tension and I just loved it. I wanted to bath in it. It was like magic. That little purple bottle changed my life.

I also started to use Thieves Blend on my son daily to help boost his immunity. I made a roller and used it on the soles of his feet and along his spine in the evening. He loved this little TLC ritual we created and I was happy for the benefits. That last year of kindy, David didn’t miss a day, stayed healthy and strong.

Little by little, I started to learn more about the benefits of those little bottles and got more and more intrigued. I used it on my husband before bedtime and also during massage, to help him relax. He still thought I was bit crazy but enjoyed the massages nonetheless.

And soon, without even realizing how, my friends started to ask me about the oils and soon I had few members under and my monthly orders were basically covered. Wow, how did that happen? I was just sharing my oily love! Being rewarded for doing something I really enjoyed was really amazing. The fact I helped my friends in the process was like a cherry on a cake. I wanted to know more, do more.

I started to study about Aromatherapy and Naturopathy, as I wanted to be able to understand about the oils and our bodies. And I started to hold classes and teach others how they can use these little bottles of magic for their own benefits. And now I have beautiful group of friends, our own Oily Tribe, that supports me, helps me and stands by me. It’s very special bond indeed.

Young Living changed my life. It made me more aware of what I use on my body and for my family. I understand more how to use the gifts of nature instead of reaching for store bought products, that are loaded with toxic ingredients. I have not been in drugstore to buy cosmetics for years. I make it myself. I ditched and switched toxic products from our entire home little by little and now I have the best, yet natural products only.

Our family the stronger and healthier, we truly enjoy the benefits of natural products. And omg they smell great! I always get complimented for the beautiful smell.

So I want to give back this month, to everybody who will sign up through my link and orders either the Premium Starter Kit or other Starter kita with min of 100 PV order, I will be giving out beautiful oily gifts. I have a basket full of goodies ready for new members.

This give away also applies to anybody who reactivates their account or signs up for Essential Rewards order with 100 PV min order.

Biwa Time of the Year – Delicious Vegan Recipes

Oh yes, it’s that time of the year again. Our Biwa tree has delicious fruit and I’m loving it.

To be honest, I never even heard of Biwa until we moved to Japan. And I never really tried until we moved to new house and there was a Biwa tree right there in our new garden.

I didn’t really know what to do with the fruits so I started to experiment with it and found out that if I pick it before it’s too ripe, it had nice sourish taste, which I love in my salads.

And so my Biwa recipes came to life

Mixed Green Salad with Biwa

Ingredients

1/4 of iceberg lettuce

6 cherry tomatoes, quartered

1/8 of red onion, sliced

1/2 cucumber, sliced

1/4 of bell pepper, cut

2 biwa, squeezed over a bowl so juice and flash separates

Bunch of cilantro

Dressing

The juice from the Biwa fruit

1 tsp of olive oil

1 tsp of white balsamic vinegar

1 drop of Jade Lemon Essential oil

Punch of Himalaya pink salt

Method

Mix all the ingredient for the dressing and let sit together so the flavors combine.

Meantime, prepare all you vegetables and fruit together in a bowl. Pour the dressing over it, taste it and then use some salt.

Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and enjoy your healthy and delicious meal!

Quinoa Biwa Herb Salad

Ingredients

1 cup cooked quinoa

Bunch of Baby leaf salad mix

Bunch of coriander

3 leafs of fresh sage

1 cucumber

2 radishes

Little bit of fresh curry leaf

Salt

Olive oil

Lemon Essential oil

Three slices of bell pepper

Method

Wash your quinoa really well to avoid it turning bitter. Boil with cup of water, salt and the curry leaf. It will give it nice smell and flavor. Let it cool down

In the meantime, chop the baby leaf and herbs and cut your cucumber and radishes into slices. Squeeze the Biwa in your fingers so it opens and remove the pits, squeezing the juice and flesh into the salad bowl. Toss it together with the rest of the ingredients. Mix spoon of olive oil with two drops of Lemon EO and pinch of salt and toss it together with the salad. Serve with some bell peppers

My Healthy Friday Morning

My biggest food struggle is breakfast. I’m Czech, I grew up on bread rolls and ham for breakfast most of my life. I love bread rolls but that’s where part of my belly fat comes from 😹🤪.

Recently I’m really trying to be healthier, eat healthier. Healthy, filling breakfast is a part of it but I mostly end up with a bowl of rice topped with poached egg, steamed Okra and Kimchi. I used to have tofu with it, but trying to stay away from soy products for now due to my thyroid issues.

Yesterday, one of my friends asked about our favorite healthy snack/dessert and I remembered my Chia Pudding Recipe! Oh I miss it so much! It’s not only great as healthy dessert, it makes for great breakfast too!

Here is a link to my YouTube Video how I made this Chia Pudding It’s really delicious

Chia Seeds need time to soak so best of you can pre soak them the night before. If not, let’s hope you have at least an hour in the morning. Luckily I do, I actually prefer to wait an hour with my food after I take my morning capsule with Endoflex Vitality, so I started so soak my Chia seeds.

What you need

4 tbs of Organic Chia Seeds,

100 ml of Almond or Coconut milk

30 ml of NingXia Red

1 tbs of Pumpkin Seeds

1 tbs of Sunflower Seeds

1 banana

2 drops of Citrus Fresh

First of all, you soak your Chia Seeds with the liquids and let it sit for a while. Best is over night but an hour gives you good texture too.

Right before serving, you add your pumpkin and sun flower seeds or any seeds/nuts of your liking, half of the banana and 2 drops of Citrus Fresh Essential Oil for extra flavor and mix well. Serve with the rest of the banana on top.

You can actually make this with any fruits of your liking, I made it with Pineapple before and it was so delicious!

Chia Seeds are very good for you. They are great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants and provide us with fiber, iron and calcium. They help to raise our “good” cholesterol and protect our heart.

A one-ounce (28 grams) serving of chia seeds contains (1):

  • Fiber: 11 grams.
  • Protein: 4 grams.
  • Fat: 9 grams (5 of which are omega-3s).
  • Calcium: 18% of the RDI.
  • Manganese: 30% of the RDI.
  • Magnesium: 30% of the RDI.
  • Phosphorus: 27% of the RDI.
  • They also contain a decent amount of zinc, vitamin B3 (niacin), potassium, vitamin B1 (thiamine) and vitamin B2.

This small amount supplies only 137 calories and one gram of digestible carbohydrate.

Why add 30 ml of NingXia Red? NingXia Red is my favorite part of my morning routine. It is so insanely good for our bodies! I keep telling everyone to drink it religiously. Those who listen, they flourish and see the amazing benefits.

But besides all these benefits, it’s also really delicious, full of berry flavor and that is something I really want from my food. Great flavors.

And why Citrus Fresh? You know I love Young Living Essential oils and I am very loyal to them. Because to be honest, if I’m adding oils to my food, I want to know where they are coming from and that they are pure. And only Young Living can guarantee it.

Citrus Fresh is fantastic blend of Orange, Lemon, Tangerine, Mandarin and Grapefruit with a hint of Spearmint, so you can imagine the burst of flavor in every single drop. It is also very rich in d-limonene, very powerful antioxidant. So it makes perfect addition to my morning bowl of goodness.

The product is based on some well researched joint care ingredients combined with essential oils and packed in capsules. Speaking of capsules, the product is sold in a sixty capsule bottle that could last you up to a month.

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
