The extra bonus of meeting these PV amounts with your ER order is that you get even more ER points to spend later!

 

Thyme Vitality 5-ml (100 PV Tier ER Exclusive)

Thyyyyyme, is on our side.  A drop or two in your marinades and your veggies, chicken, and fish will absolutely sing on the grill or in your pan (or however you’re preparing them). It’s even great in your salad dressings, pasta sauces, dips, and more. You know how invaluable Thyme is in the kitchen, but keep in mind with Thyme Vitality (and all Vitality oils), a little goes a long way. Often a drop will do, but sometimes it might take two. Never hurts to experiment a little.  Plus, let’s not forget all the therapeutic benefits of Thyme Vitality. There’s a reason it’s in Inner Defense, after all.  

 

Parsley Vitality 5-ml (190 PV Tier ER Exclusive)

One of the new kids on the block (hangin’ tough!), Parsley Vitality is a great addition to soups and stocks (a little preparation for fall never hurt anyone). Still having your smoothies in the morning? Add a drop or two of Parsley Vitality for a little extra antioxidant power and to help cleanse and keep your body’s systems working right. 

 

Coriander Vitality 5-ml (190 PV Tier ER Exclusive)

I’m sure you’ve all used coriander in your dishes before, but if you’re feeling adventurous, find some tamale and salsa recipes or Indian food recipes that you can use Coriander Vitality in and mix things up a bit. Add some savory to your summer. Plus, this is great for keeping your immune system strong!

 

Black Pepper Vitality 5-ml (190 PV Tier)

Time to spice things up a bit.  We all know that salt and pepper are staples in almost every meal. Salt serves to enhance the flavors while pepper adds depth and complexity to dishes that otherwise might not have it. Plus, spicy.  A drop or two of Black Pepper Vitality can replace ground black pepper and really help make your dishes irresistible. Don’t be afraid to experiment a little with your sparkling beverages and cocktails too. A toothpick swirl of Black Pepper Vitality can add a bit of a punch in a good way. Bloody Marys will be especially tasty. And if you haven’t noticed already, most of these Vitality oils can work together in a variety of meals!

 

Orange Vitality 5-ml (250 PV Tier)

Remember those smoothies you added your Parsley Vitality to? Put a drop or two of Orange Vitality in them as well for some extra flavor and immune boosting properties. Plus, did you know that Orange Vitality can help support your digestive system as well? A drop in your morning water or NingXia Red can help keep your stomach at ease as you eat all those yummy dishes. Plus, it’s really tasty in a lot of summer marinades.

 

Mountain Savory Vitality 5-ml (250 PV Tier)

Have you seen Mountain Savory in the Young Living lineup and wondered what it’s good for? Well, it’s main use is helping to support your immune system (are you seeing the other theme with the oils in this month’s promos?). You can add a drop to a daily tea to help get that support or put 2-3 drops in a veggie capsule with some carrier oil for your daily dose of goodness. In the kitchen, it pairs nicely with Oregano Vitality in pasta sauces, meat marinades, and even a swirl or a full drop in a pesto recipe can add a bit more depth to the flavor!

 

YL Branded Charcuterie Board (300 PV Tier)

Nothing says summer quite like some charcuterie. Whatever little delights you want to put on this YL charcuterie board, utilize the three Vitality oil bottle holders on it to enhance those treats or show what you used in some of your dips and sauces! This is perfect for small gatherings or just for you and the family.  

 

YL Apron Set (400 PV Tier)

This is SO cute. Two aprons, one for you with a 15-ml bottle image on it, and one for your kid with a 5-ml bottle on it, will have you and, as YL put it, “your sous chef” ready to tackle any cooking project. And don’t worry about making a mess, these can be easily washed and dried, so have fun and see what tasty creations you can make as you hold onto the last days of summer! 

 

Even though it’s been a strange summer, to say the least, this is a much welcome gift to us all. The gift of cooking and spending time together. The gift of health. We all need these gifts to keep going and rising above. Here are a couple recipes that include some of the promo oils, in case you wanted to try your hand at some fun stuff before summer ends!

You know what else Young Living has for us? How about 20% Copaiba Vitality! All. Month. Long. The whole month of August (barring they don’t run out, because it’s while supplies last), Copaiba Vitality is 20% off and this has SO many benefits. You could add it to that smoothie recipe, make a tea with it, or put it in a veggie capsule and take it as a supplement every day and it will help with your overall wellness, immune support, general discomfort, and so much more. Young Living describes it as having a honey like flavor, but it tastes a little different to everyone. This is something you need in your life if you’ve never had it, but if you have, you already know! Here’s the info:

Copaiba Vitality

  • Item no.: 5632D
  • Wholesale price: $17.60
  • Retail price: $23.16
  • PV: 17.60
  • No limit while supplies last; Shop only

 

I highly recommend stocking up on Copaiba Vitality, because it’s the same oil as regular Copaiba, which happens to be really good in some Epsom salts for a relaxing bath, which we’ll all need as we face the second half of the year.

 

Another exciting thing that showed up last month was the Gary’s Great Day Protocol Kit! This is while supplies last, and it has special clips of Young Living’s founder Gary Young speaking, so it’s special beyond just the oils, but you’re going to love the whole thing. If you’re not familiar with Gary’s Great Day Protocol, here’s what someone wrote about what it is, how to do it, and what the oils are good for. Check it out:

“GARY’S GREAT DAY PROTOCOL

It truly is the best way to start each day.

 

One of Gary’s most beloved and most talked about protocols. This is how I start every morning. The collection of these 4 essential oil blends sits on my bathroom vanity, and has become a part of my morning routine. Just as I would never forget to wash my face, or brush my teeth, I will never miss this most essential step either. I also have this collection by the door, so that before leaving, I can quickly apply and be on my way.

 

I hope it blesses each day for you, as it has done for me!

So much to be excited for as we send summer off and get ready to see what fall 2020 is going to look like. Let’s enjoy every last bit of it as much as we can. As always, if you have any questions or need any help, let me know! I love to be able to be a help. I hope you have the best August ever!

Monthly Note- July

Happy July! Can you believe it? The first half of 2020 is gone. Poof. Finished. I think our collective goal should be this: make the second half of 2020 better than the first. We can do it. I believe in us.
