Sutter Roseville Medical Center- offering Young Living

You have to check this out! I recently saw a post on social media that has been shared over and over on social media about a medical center offering Young Living Essential Oils to help subside nausea rather than using pain medication. 

Please note: Young Living Essential Oils are not intended to treat, diagnose, cure or prevent any disease. Just as some antibiotics work for some people and not for others, essential oils work different on each individual.

That being said, I think it is great that this medical center is experimenting with these natural 'healing agents', as I like to personally call them.

All names were covered for privacy.

Are Citrus Oils Safe For You Teeth?

I recently read an article from Young Living about the effects Citrus Fruits can have on the teeth. Many people have raised concern that Citrus Oils may have the same effect so Young Living had a test done to show exactly how these oils effect your teeth.

Pretty cool how they have little to no change in PH compared to the actual fruit itself. Wondering how that can be if these are "pure" oils right? Well, it all goes back to the Seed to Seal process. Lemon (as well as other citrus oils) are cold pressed from the rind of 'Citrus limon fruit'. This results in essential oil with a bright citrus aroma comparable to the flesh of the fresh fruit. The actual flesh of the fruit contains higher levels of PH compared to the essential oils derived from the rind.  

Peppermint Water = Performance Support

There she goes again about Peppermint... I know, I know! But I just love this oil so much and this meme is awesome!

I have occasionally put YL Peppermint oil in my water and coffee, but never thought about putting it in my water during a workout. Light bulb! I am excited to start this TONIGHT! Yahhhh 

My Water Drinking Rituals-
Morning: Lemon Water
Day: Water (lemon, citrus fresh, tangerine, grapefruit, lime or any combination of these)
Workout: Peppermint Water
