Healthy Weight and Gentle Detox - Maintain healthy digestion and metabolism by adding a drop of Lemon and a drop of Grapefruit to your water as often as you like (glass or stainless steel cups and straws only!), or make capsules with Lemon, Grapefruit, and Peppermint. Young Living’s essential-oils-infused Slique product line (shakes, bars, and supplements) is another tasty way to boost your weight loss program.

Whole Body Nutrition - Drink 1-2 ounces of Ningxia Red each day to for an antioxidant boost that supports every body system and promotes wellness from the inside out.

Strong Immune System - Stress and busy-ness can take a toll on your health, and you want to feel your best at your wedding. Rub a drop of Thieves on your feet daily, or diffuse, to support your immune system in the months leading up to your special day.

Positive Energy - Stay focused on the joyful - not stressful - aspects of wedding planning by wearing a drop of Joy over your heart.

Fresh Skin - Reveal soft, smooth skin by using a simple mixture of sugar, grapeseed oil, and Lemon. This is a luxurious whole-body scrub, but it is especially effective for exfoliating feet.

Workout Boost - Open your airways and support healthy respiration during your workout by diffusing or applying RC. Feeling uncomfortable after a hard workout with your wedding trainer? Apply Panaway and Copaiba to soothe sore muscles and aid in post-workout recovery.
