Marshmallow

The Marshmallow we all love to roast over a campfire has a surprising medicinal history.

For centuries now marshmallow has been used to make preparations from roots, flowers, and leaves to ease a sore throat and cough.

Popular in the Nineteenth-century to cook the juice of the root with sugar and egg whites.  This produced a rubbery sort of fluff that when hardened into candy could soothe a soar throat.

Thanks to advances in manufacturing and texturing agents, today’s Marshmallow’s that we roast over a campfire no long contain the OOEY GOOEY juice of Marshmallow root.

Scientific name: Althaea officinalis ~ Greek ~ meaning “to heal”

Marshmallow tea:

1/2-1 teaspoon crushed root

8 oz. boiling water

Steep 10-15 minutes

Enjoy!

Licorice

Both China and Europe have grown Licorice since ancient times.

Licorice is most well known for it’s use in candy but is most widely used to flavor tobacco products and throat lozenges.

Real licorice is strong and should be used with caution.   Many candies on the market today contain artificial licorice flavoring.

Too much Licorice flavored tobacco or candy risks overdose.  Symptoms include weakness, water retention and high blood pressure.  Consuming small amounts can be beneficial to a soar throat.  Confine your enjoyment to only a few pieces to be on the safe side.   Avoid like the plague if you have high blood pressure, heart disease or glaucoma.

If you have ulcers you may want to ask your health care professional about trying DGL (de-glycyrrhizinated licorice), it’s known to work just as well as some of the more conventional stuff  but without all the heavy risk.

For a soar throat and to help ease a cough try a pinch of powered herb in water or tea.

  • Uses:
  • Ease a soar throat
  • Help eliminate a cough
  • Anti-ulcer

2018 Young Living International Grand Convention

A look back at the International Grand Convention

From the sweeping views at the Young Living Lavender Farm in Mona to the bustling action around the Salt Palace Convention Center, the 2018 International Grand Convention was one to remember.

 

 

 

 

 

We welcomed 30,000 members and guests to the panoramic and historic Salt Lake valley for four days of product launches, motivational speakers and performances, and the opportunity to come together and share our inspirational stories and goals. Plus, thousands more joined us virtually through the YL Digital Ticket!

 

 

 

 

We were on the ground at each of the venues, taking in the sights, smells, and adventures to put you at the heart of all the heartfelt action.

 

 

 

 

The agendas were jam-packed with educational workshops, spa appointments, YL Fit, Expo visits, and Farm Experience trips, where attendees could see the Seed to Seal® commitment in action and enjoy a home-cooked picnic lunch surrounded by the Rocky Mountains.

 

Amongst all the action, everyone came together for the general sessions, which took place each morning. For the first time ever, the general sessions were viewed simultaneously by attendees in two adjacent venues—at the Salt Palace and at the Vivint Arena. Inspirational speakers, Young Living members and leaders, and the Young family all took to the stage to make exciting announcements about new products and partner farms and offer words and songs of inspiration.

When the general sessions let out each day, the venues became lively epicenters of excitement and chatter as attendees made their way to workshops, the Expo, and product pickup to snag their orders of newly launched products. On the way, they shared a bite for lunch over friendly conversation about YL products, as well as valuable business tips.

 

 

The Expo was elegantly designed as a shopping plaza, offering storefronts where attendees could try a whole range of products, from the newly launched Journey On™ blend at the Simply Oils sampling area to new ancient grain offerings at the Einkorn Kitchen.

 

 

 

 

Members who achieved a new rank this past year were able to visit the Recognition Experience and immerse themselves in a virtual reality rendering of our farms in Mona, Utah; St. Maries, Idaho; and Guayaquil, Ecuador—the destinations for the Silver, Gold, and Platinum retreats.

 

 

The entire convention was made for photo ops, where the halls were decorated with potted flora, stunning photographs of the farms and botanicals, and oversized bottles of oil filled with floral arrangements hanging from the ceilings.

 

 

 

When the days drew to a close, members found themselves enjoying the parties and galas or wandering through the streets of downtown Salt Lake City to visit the sights and find local restaurants.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’re so grateful for this opportunity we

had to come together as a Young Living family.

Kola

Kola is a tropical nut that has many medicinal benefits is actually used in much of the Cola on the American market.

This Herbs has been in preparations since prehistoric times for it’s ability to increase stamina.

Kola

It’s origins in the new world trace back to the slaves. It was used as an anti depressant/stimulant which quickly caught on with pharmacists who started supplying it as such.

John Pemberton was a pharmacist that had a dream of making a kola “nerve tonic.”

It’s been said that back in 1886 he mixed kola, coca (source of cocaine) and some sugar in pot. A little carbonated water for bubbles. And BAM! A refreshing drink with a pick me up! The bookkeeper called it “Coca-Cola.”

Today’s Coke is made using pure caffeine instead of using coca.

The benefit of Kola is also a problem.

On one hand it can be used as a stimulant for athletes or used to dilate the bronchial passage or to enhance the pain relieving effects of aspirin.

On the other hand over use can cause an upset tummy, headaches, the jitters, insomnia and may even increase the risk of a heart attack.

Oh and it is addictive!

Consuming up to 250 milligrams of caffeine a day has been considered generally safe for most people.

You can order it and make tea if you like but it’s easier to get this herb by drinking soda.

Stand for something when you’re here.
