Lately we have been on the go-go-go. Soccer practices, team parties, swim lessons, teen activities-it seems like there is always somewhere to be. Well I think my very pregnant body got a message from my immune system last night that it was time to slow down!
Late yesterday afternoon I started getting very sniffly and congested. Yes, both at the same time, as weird as that sounds. I could feel the pressure building in my head and my throat start bothering me. I started feeling down in the dumps, and my mountain of tissues was growing on my end table beside my seat on the couch, when I remembered that I had the power to boost my immune system already in my house!
I went over to the fridge and got an extra dose of my favorite health-supporting juice drink, NingXia Red. Never heard of it? It’s just the most awesomely delicious immune-boosting drink by Young Living. NingXia Red contains the powerful antioxidant oils orange, yuzu, lemon, and tangerine combined with the superfruit wolfberry. This juice maintains healthy vision, may help support a healthy cardiovascular system, supplies your body with the resources it needs to maintain good health and overall wellness, and replenishes key nutrients all while delivering natural, low-glycemic energy. It also supports the body’s natural immune response, which is JUST what I needed last night.
Then I made some hot tea with a few drops of one of my favorite oils, Thieves. It was immediately soothing to my throat and chest. And after looking in my Quick Reference Guide for Using Essential Oils, I decided to rub RC on my chest, Raven on my back, and Thieves on my feet. All these oils are great at supporting the immune system and encouraging proper nasal function.
Finally, I decided that since we had homeschool in the morning, I better get some sleep tonight, I moved my diffuser into my room and placed it on my nightstand with a few drops of Thieves and a few drops of Eucalyptus oil. I slept so great and wasn’t even bothered by my nose. Major bonus!
I feel so great this morning, and I’m sure it was because of the immune-boosting properties of these oils and NingXia. I can only imagine how different this morning would have been had I left my immune system alone to fend for itself. Sure, it probably would have gotten the job done eventually, but probably not as quickly. I am so thankful for the restful sleep and health benefits afforded by my Young Living Essential Oils!
If you’re interested in getting some oils or NingXia Red for yourself, don’t wait until you need them! It is much better to be prepared and to already begin supporting your health before it’s too late.
