Young Living

Not just essential oils!  Young Living (affectionately referred to as YL) has some of the highest frequency oils, and therefore self care, cleaning, and (most importantly) pet products I have ever experienced.  I use YL daily as part of my routine, whether it’s the morning Ning Xia Red, the shampoo, the soap or deodorant I make, the supplements, and more. YL shows up throughout my day to help me with so many things. Basically I LOVE their stuff and yes I’ve tried the other companies but without the energetic zyng I get from Young Living.

If you are interested in exploring essential oils or other chemical free ways of living, I recommend that you sign up as a distributor and get a 24% discount off products. You only have to buy once annually to stay active, but you save more and get free stuff if you buy monthly. 

I am happy to answer any of your questions about products, my experience using Young Living since 2009, or if there is something you’d like to order.

Santevia Alkaline Gravity Water System

This is the system I use at home and The Santevia System restores your tap water to a clean, great-tasting, mineralized and alkalized state, using the power of gravity instead of chemicals, artificial materials, water pressure or electricity. Every drop drips through the complex 8-stage system of natural filters, which cleans and infuses your water with earth-derived minerals. The result: great-tasting, mineralized alkaline water that helps your body stay pH-balanced, healthy and hydrated. A great way to keep the entire family healthy.

This system is available in two options: one that sits conveniently on your countertop, and one designed for your water dispenser system.

8-Stage Filtration Process

Stage 1: Ceramic Pre-Filter

Constructed from highly compressed and fired diatomaceous earth with a pore size of 0.3 of a micron, this pre-filter removes rust, sediments, bacteria, germs and parasites.

Stage 2: Granular Activated Coconut Carbon

Highly porous coconut carbon charcoal offers an astounding 65 acres of purifying surface area. It filters chlorine, herbicides, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, industrial chemicals, trihalomethanes (THMs), heavy metals, organic chemicals, odour, taste, colour and particulates. This stage also contains a KDF filter medium that inhibits the growth of bacteria in the filter and neutralizes heavy metals. Magnesium granules improve the Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP).

Stage 3: Volcanic Mineral Zeolite

This stage inhibits bacteria and neutralizes heavy metals including lead, nickel, cadmium and mercury through an ion exchange process. It filters detergents, ammonium, certain radioactive ions, agricultural chemicals and other toxins.

Stage 4: Mineral Stone Infusion

Highly porous Maifan mineral stones infuse ionized minerals into the water that aid in oxygenation and alkalization.

Stage 5: pH Mineral Balls

Mineral ions encased in diatomaceous earth add calcium, magnesium and other trace minerals to fortify the water and increase the pH.

Stage 6: Energy Balls

Constructed from highly compressed and fired earth and mineral oxides, the energy balls assist with pH balancing and emit beneficial infrared energy into the water.

Stage 7: Mineral Stone Immersion

During this stage, mineral stones continuously release easily absorbed, ionized minerals into the water, including calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc and other trace minerals.

Stage 8: Magnetic Energy

Embedded in the Santevia water spout, aligned magnets are suspended in the water, simulating the magnetism emitted by the earth’s core and the forces created as water flows over magnetic, mineral-rich rocks in nature. The magnetic energy breaks the water molecule clusters into smaller structures for greater bio-availability and maximum absorption.

Amethyst BioMat*

A device that saved my life, well at least my back. When I had my own office I had the Amethyst BioMat on the table most of the time, unless I was being self-full and using it at home for my own self-care. 

The Amethyst BioMat is the only mat of its kind to combine Far Infrared Rays, Negative Ions, and Amethyst for a true mind, body, and spirit healing experience. The Amethyst BioMat is a unique innovation in bio technology containing 17 different layers and more than 28 lbs. of amethyst crystals, which naturally produce and are superconductors of Far Infrared Rays.

Indicated for:

  • Muscle relaxation
  • Temporary increase of local circulation
  • Temporary relief of:
    • Minor muscle pain
    • Minor joint pain and stiffness

 Full Body Presence by Suzanne Scurlock-Durana

My workshops with Suzanne have probably been the most transformative of my life. Full Body Presence teaches you how to settle more into yourself with its audio explorations, listening to the cues and signals of your body, while also recognizing the unconditional support that is all around us. Brilliant work necessary for a world that lives more and more in their heads. For those that are seeking to feel better physically, having a deeper sense of your body is key to releasing the long held restrictions. This book may be the next step for you.
