Love Fiercely

THINGS I LOVE {WINTER 2017} EDITION

 In 2017, BRACHA designers made me custom earrings for my wedding. I loved them so much… They are so special to me & they expressed my personality perfectly on my most favorite day.

One of the things I love the most about Bracha – is that they not only care about helping people feel beautiful by producing high quality pieces of statement jewelry… They also have a passion to help those trapped in sex trafficking all over the world. In the same way that their metals & stones are genuine, as is their heart to do something great through contributing to others freedom. A percentage of their profits every year go towards freeing those who are helpless | hopeless | & out of options. So, while you are looking fabulous in any of their pieces – you can also know that your money did not just go to a company that wants to make money for their own personal gain… You are helping to free others, while looking AMAZING in the process.

I could go on & on about how much I love this company | their TEXAN founders | as well as their hearts – But more than that, I want to say THANK YOU to BRACHA… for helping me look FABULOUS on my wedding day & for constantly allowing me to rock their pieces, while promoting freedom to those that need it most! I cannot tell you what it means to me every time I look in the mirror or see pictures while I wear their jewelry, each-time I wear anything made by Bracha – I have a sense of excitement, because I know what I am wearing goes beyond me. Wearing BRACH is a reminder that there is change & freedom happening – that there is a greater purpose beyond simply owning a beautifully designed piece of jewelry.

Essential oils by Young Living are used as a daily routine in my life. Now, there are many other oil companies claiming to have true Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils, but Young Living is the longest & most reputable company in America – YL chooses to stay in a place where they are only shared by word of mouth to provide Essential Oils to everyone. Intentionally, YL chooses to not advertise or water down their products to sell in stores, so that they can make more money. They believe that because their product is made with such quality & excellence – word of mouth is the most genuine, as well as effective way to share how YL’s products have helped you as an individual. When something works, & not just works – but changes your life… people take notice & want to be a part.

In my experience, the best & most effective products have not been read about in a magazine or seen in a commercial… for me, the greatest products have been shared by testimonial & word of mouth personally to me. I have so many examples of how Young Living has changed my life & helped me live a healthier life… as well as how it has changed peoples lives around me – but I will just share three quick examples with you…

 


 

1. I was personally on 4 Prescription medications for years, & within months – I was off of them because YL regulated the areas that the medicine was simply masking or helping to maintain… I have experienced healing instead of simply maintaining a level of health. I also experience a lot of pain due to chronic EpsteinBarr, as well as chronic migraines – while these issues have not stopped completely yet… I am able to maintain & subside pain with Essential Oils, instead of pain medicine. 

 

2. I had a friend who was not able to get pregnant. She had seen health experts & professionals, & nothing helped… within a month of using YL products, after years of medical treatment – she was able to become pregnant naturally.

 

3. My cousin was on medicine for years for many reasons. Doctors told her that she would have to be on these drug for her whole life to be healthy. After a little over a year – she decided, against doctors recommendations to get off her medicine… (I DO NOT ADVISE EVER DOING THIS.) But she chose this, under a doctors supervision… after testing, they found that her levels were regulated & normal. She has not been on her medication since. 


 

 

 

(Please note: I AM NOT a medical professional | a doctor | or a health expert.) I am simply a woman who has life proof that Essential Oils from YL not only work – they have changed my life. 

 

Over 20 years ago, Young Living Founder and CEO D. Gary Young purchased Young Living’s first herb farm in St. Maries, Idaho, and established a tradition of quality that has not since wavered. Today each of our six farms is dedicated exclusively to our proprietary Seed to Seal® process. You can learn more about the seed to seal process by clicking HERE!

 


TOP 10 REASONS TO CHOOSE YOUNG LIVING 

 

1. Young Living is is the only essential oil company that owns their own farms or partners with farms that are willing to live up to their standards for growing, harvesting & distilling.

2. Essential oils sold in most health food stores are aroma-grade or fragrance-grade oils & while they do smell good, they don’t offer the same therapeutic & medicinal benefits. These oils may have an essential oil base, but may contain additives, fillers, & synthetics to increase volume or fragrance. Pure essential oils contain all desired therapeutic compounds – nothing more, nothing less.

3. Most essential oils have expiration dates, Young Living oils do not. 100% pure essential oils (excluding citrus) will last indefinitely if properly stored away from heat & sunlight.

4. Young Living has been producing the finest quality oils for over 20 years and with over 180 different oils they have the greatest selection of singles & blends of any essential oil company. But, if an oil doesn’t pass Young Living’s strict quality standards, they won’t offer it for sale so sometimes not all of these oils are available until they can produce more. 

5. Young Living uses the finest production practices in the industry. They distill oils once at low temperatures & pressures, using chemical-free water & medical-grade stainless steel distillers.

6. Young Living is the only essential oil company in the world with a Seed to Seal process since they control every single aspect of production.

7. Anyone can visit the Young Living farms around the globe & participate in the harvest & distillation process. I have not been able to experience this yet, but it is highly recommended! No other essential oil company owns their own farms & can offer this opportunity to the public.

8. Young Living oils meet all industry AFNOR & ISO standards & are subjected to isotopic ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS) analysis which determines whether a particular essential oil is naturally sourced or synthetic (created in a lab).

9. There are no minimum sales or purchase requirements for Young Living members. Ever. The only thing you have to do to keep your membership active is to place $50 in orders per year.

10. The truth is that there are wayyy more than 10 things – but I cannot cover each & every thing – so I hope that this helps you in your own journey of health & wellness.

 


 

 

I honestly don’t think that I could or would want to go through my day without them. I have been using Young Living for over 3 years now… & I have stopped using prescriptions | medicines | & even candles at times. Through using them I have learned about how many chemicals | dyes | & unnecessary ingredients are in most of the things I use on a daily basis. There is to much to cover in this post – to catch you up on all you would need to learn about Essential Oils, but if you are interested – you can click the link below & I would be happy to help you discover how using Essential Oils can change your life as well.

BRACHA also recently came out with an initial necklace. I saw one of the founders, Michelle – wearing one & I told her it was amazing… She let me know it was a unique piece & not something their company produced at the time. UNTIL NOW!!!! As soon as Bracha began making them – I wanted one so bad. One of the things I love about them as a company, is that in all of their designs – they use genuine stones & all of their jewelry is such quality. & to top it all, they give back to help others through their company… Because I have already in the post above gone into more detail about how they do this.

All I really want to share in this section is that, Bracha’s pieces are such amazing quality. I find that it is difficult sometimes to purchase quality jewelry, without paying wayyyy to much… & those other times when I do find cute items, they break so easily & do not hold up for more than a week or so, which I guess is reflected in the items price. However, even with those “higher quality” jewelry pieces – it is not often you can find ones with genuine stones or made in a way that they last for years.

This is just ONE of the many reasons I love Bracha – & the fact that it is not a normal jewelry company. Like I’ve expressed in the earlier post, they have a cause behind the beauty of what they create. I cannot tell you how often people ask me where I get my jewelry when I wear their pieces… & now you know!! 😉
