Clean Up Your Beauty Routine With Savvy Minerals

Ladies, are you ready to clean up your beauty routine with Savvy Minerals?! Who knew the hidden toxins lurking in our make-up and the sneaky way labeling laws help the company and not the consumer? Not this gal!! But now that I know, I choose better for myself and my family. Young Living recently introduced Savvy Minerals, the brainchild of YL Member Melissa Poepping! I immediately made the switch!! So did a bunch of folks, including Kristin Cavalarri, who says "Young Living is a brand you can always trust."


For years, Melissa wondered how to purchase clean make-up, and when she couldn't find it, she worked hard to formulate her own!! Young Living saw the need for Savvy Minerals and offered to buy her brand!! Isn't that amazing?!  I love a company that will listen to it's members, and adjust it's product line to meet the demand for truly CLEAN products!! Savvy Minerals is free (as in zip, zero, zilch) of the following harmful ingredients:

  1. Talc
  2. Bismuth
  3. Mineral Oil
  4. Parabens
  5. Gluten
  6. Nano Particles
  7. Phthalates
  8. Synthetic or Lake Dyes
  9. Petrochemicals
  10. Synthetic Fragrance
  11. Synthetic Colorants

Here are some simple tutorials to help you get started or introduce your friends to Savvy Minerals:

Start by being a product of the product! Learn the product line and try the products on yourself!! They are amazing, provide great coverage and are simple to use! Here's a tutorial on placing your first order!  As you listen, write down your color preferences, so you can create your first order here.  After the video, check the graphics for color names and options!

When choosing a foundation, think about this...  If your wrist veins are blue in tone, choose the cool color foundations, and if then tend to be more green, then choose the warm tones.  Dark tones are recommended for people of color.

If you are in love with that famous NARS blush color mentioned in the video, I Do Believe You're Blushin' is the color for you!!  It's the one I chose with Warm 2 for my skin tone, and I love the combination!  Ready to order right now, aren't you?  Yup.  Me, too!

If you're like me, bronzer is not something I've been using, because it was just one more layer of chemicals I felt I didn't need. Know what I mean? Now, we have a clean option!! Check out this tutorial on how to correctly contour using Savvy Minerals!

And here are the color options, which I especially love, because every woman DESERVES to wear a crown!!

Now what about eye shadows? Did you know you can use eye shadow to enhance the color of your natural eye color? A good general rule is to use eye shadows that are the opposite color of your eye color on the color wheel. For example, I have green eyes. On the color wheel, green is opposite of red, so I typically try to wear eye shadows with reddish undertones to help make the green in my eyes stand out. I love a good plum, maroon, and browns with warm tones for my green eyes! For blue eyes, shadows with a more orange undertone will make your eyes POP! Try a pretty copper, gold, or warm brown. Brown eyes are the most versatile (in my opinion) and can pull off a lot of different colors. I have found the plum, blues, and bronzed browns can really make brown eyes stand out! (Thanks, Haley!)



Remember singing, "I love my lips" with the Veggie Tales crew?  Well, I didn't feel that way because knowing that most lipsticks contain leadbeetle partsmercury, and other stuff I just don't want to apply to my face!! 

I love that our Lip Gloss stays intact without a nasty, toxic chemical reaction to keep it there!! And no crushed beetle body partsbeaver bum excretions, or other gross ingredients that don't belong on your beautiful face!! Or mine.

Last but not least, don't skip this product!! This is the secret sauce to making mineral make-up look GOOD on all skin types!! Check out the video above if you didn't catch why you must have the Misting Spray!! Plus, the essential oils in this formula make an amazing natural fragrance, and people will be asking what scent you are wearing!!



Okay, so we all like savings right? Sometimes we talk ourselves out of spending money on things because we THINK we are spending a lot. Well, I am not typically a couponer or a price matcher but I thought I would compare and contrast the cost of YL's makeup with a few other leading companies.

Here are my interesting finds for the basic things we all buy when we think of makeup:


Young Living Savvy Minerals (Wholesale Price):
Eyeliner-15.75
Foundation-44.00
Eyeshadow (one color)-15.25
Lip Gloss-27.50
Lipstick-22.75
Blush-27.75
Total=$153
(w/out Lipstick-$130.25; w/out Lip Gloss-$125.50)

BeautyCounter Makeup (non-consultant price):
Eyeliner-$23
Foundation (powder)-$41
Eyeshadow-$34
Lip Gloss-$29
Lipstick-$30
Blush-$40
Total=$197
(w/out Lipstick-$167; w/out Lip Gloss-$168)

Bare Minerals Makeup (Retail-only option):
Eyeliner-$17
Foundation-$28.50
Eyeshadow (Palette)-$45
Lip Gloss-$18
Lipstick-$20
Blush-$24
Total=$152.50
(w/out Lipstick-$132.50; w/out Lip Gloss-$134.50)

So, as you can see: 1.) Young Living's makeup is NOT expensive; 2.) Hello, INGREDIENTS??? :) I mean, the stuff I can trust is really no more then the stuff I can't trust. Maybe you get a tad more (like multiple eyeshadows or a duo blush pack) but I am happy to get quality over quantity. :)

AND BEST POINT OF ALL: Neither of these other 2 give me POINTS BACK when I order!!!! With my YL order I can add these to my ER order, get 25% back (if you're just starting you will get 10% and work your way up) which is $38.25 back on an order of $153!!!!! So, what does that? Does Target? Ulta? Amazon?Just something to chew on. :) Feel free to share this. :) End of math lesson. (Original author unknown)

The bottom line is, Savvy Minerals is a great deal!! And, when you create an account here, and then share your link with others, Young Living will reward you with sweet cash bonuses for every person who places an order as well, so it's a win-win, cause then you can afford MORE MAKE-UP!! :-P  Want to learn how to share Savvy Minerals as an income producing activity?  Watch for my next blog post!

Achieve Your Goals By Creating the Right Mindset

Today is the best day to evaluate where you’ve been, where you are, and where you want to be. Goal setting is a powerful process for envisioning what you’d like to accomplish and motivating yourself to make that vision a reality.  Our team leaders are super effective at coaching on identifying your Chazown, or Vision, and then making a step by step action plan to achieve the things you're dreaming about!! We even have yearly retreats for our team to do just that!!

You may already be familiar with the SMART method of setting goals, one of the best ways to start:

  • Specific—Goals should answer specific questions of who, what, where, when, and why.
  • Measurable—Goals should be quantifiable so you can track your progress.
  • Attainable—You should be able to evaluate whether your goals are realistic.
  • Relevant—Goals should be relevant to your life at this time.
  • Time Related—Goals should have a deadline to keep you on track and focused.

For example, instead of “I want to get in better shape,” try a specific, SMART goal, such as “I want to exercise after work, five days a week, for the next three months.”

Whatever your goals are, you can use essential oils and our training to help you define (or refine) your goals, remove emotional blockages, and solidify your resolve to achieve them.  We'd love to help you!!

How To Use Essential Oils for Emotional Health

In the hustle and bustle of today’s world, it can be difficult to maintain all those good intentions about living a more healthy lifestyle, especially for adults who have been through, or are working with the adoption, foster care, and advocacy system, many of whom have not been taught the skills to effectively deal with their own "family of origin" dynamics. But healthy living doesn’t have to be hard. Our team works with you to process and release the emotional stresses of life.  Let me explain.

We first met a friend, we'll call Charlotte, at a Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Oklahoma event.  Charlotte, as we will call her, was a quiet, compassionate woman in her mid-thirties.  As a child, she was subjected to the worst types of abuse and neglect, homelessness and had the burden of caring for her younger siblings the best she could.  Within a few minutes of specialized coaching and emotional bio-scan testing, Charlotte felt compelled to schedule a session using the Aroma Freedom Technique with myself, and a few of our other leaders, Carman and Michelle, pictured below with another convention attendee.  We found a quiet place to work, and began the process.

Within just a few minutes, Charlotte was able to pinpoint two blockages that were keeping her from fully engaging in her family relationships. She identified the emotions relating to feeling unlovable and being unable to have truly lasting, healthy relationships. A healthy family dynamic seemed to be the most unreachable goal for Charlotte.

We used a few simple techniques, and a specific combination of essential oils that assist in the Aroma Freedom process, as developed by Clinical Psychologist Dr. Benjamin Perkus. As we talked, the tears began flowing and she was able to forgive and begin to let go of the painful circumstances of her past that were negatively affecting her present, and keeping her from the bright future God had for her. Charlotte's mindset quickly shifted to the assurance that should COULD have a healthy, loving and lasting relationship with her spouse and children. Her hope was restored!!

She left the session with a newfound confidence and freedom. Since the session, she has continued to work on her emotional health with her starter oils and some specific emotional freedom practices and support from our team! Because of this personal freedom, she can more effectively advocate for children in her role within the CASA organization, and assist children, families, and her fellow volunteers within the advocacy program in learning emotional health strategies and healthy self-care practices!!

Charlotte's story is just one example of the service we can provide to individuals, and groups. Our team holds regularly scheduled in-service trainings and fundraisers for groups like CASA of Oklahoma. We also serve the individuals with our essential oils team in the AFT process, scripture based affirmation coaching, and of course, essential oils education and presentations in person, and in exclusive online communities daily. And, as our team trains you, YOU will be able to serve others in the same way!  There's nothing like watching a person's eyes light up with revelation as they step into emotional freedom and capture hope for the future!! Changing hearts and lives is the best part of what we do!

Got Stress?

Got STRESS? Here are a few things you can do in the natural to pair faith with works of wisdom:

#1: Download the Calm app and schedule breathing sessions EVERY DAY. It works. You can pair your favorite relaxing essential oils with it. This works!!

#2: Get a Premium Starter Kit and Young Living's Calcium/Magnesium supplement or some other type of effective magnesium (not pills, seriously), and take it religiously. Magnesium not only calms the physical body, but it supports normal blood pressure, and helps us get restful sleep.

#3: Enforce healthy boundaries: Say NO. It's time. It really is.

#4: Make things more simple. Everywhere you can, it's time to let others carry the load. Cooking, cleaning, lawn care, whatever!! Pass it off so you are not physically exhausted while you are fighting physical, mental, emotional or spiritual battles!! God TOLD David not to fast during the battle, or he would lose!! So, use wisdom and know when to let things to!!

#5: Let people love on you, and you love on others!! Just being present, face to face, talking, comforting, and reassuring and receiving that back will help you relax, both internally and externally.

#6: Roll our secret sauce stress blend on the neck, over the heart, and on the back of the neck throughout the day. This will help YOU hold that peace. Want to know what we recommend? Click here and get more oils info!!
