Stress Away from Young Living

Leave a comment

As you’d have read from my post about 3 weeks ago, I’ve started using Young Living essential oils on the recommendation of my friend Ana. Ana uses the oils for the health of her young family and gave me some that she thought might help me too. In the last few weeks, I’ve been faithfully using the oils she selected for me, including some of the ones that came in the Basic Starter Kit. In fact, the one that I felt worked for me almost immediately is STRESS AWAY.

IMG_8177My small bottle of STRESS AWAY was included in the Basic Starter Kit and came with the AromaGlide Fitment – basically a roll-on attachment which makes applying topically such a breeze. Every night as I wind down (it takes me a while to settle into my bedtime hygiene), I roll some onto my wrists and I do the same for T as well.

IMG_8176We have a bottle of Melatonin right next to us (actually on his nightstand) because for some reason, it’s difficult for us to fall asleep. I don’t use Melatonin as much as T because I don’t work and I basically have the luxury of waking/sleeping as my body clock decrees but sometimes, it’s just annoying to be tossing and turning. I’ve noticed that I haven’t needed any Melatonin for the last 3 weeks since I started using Stress Away to relax before turning in.

I can’t say for sure that it’s all attributed to STRESS AWAY but it is an obvious variable and it doesn’t hurt that it smells really nice.

For the longest time, I couldn’t figure out why it brings back childhood memories. T and I actually looked up the ingredients to see what it contains – it has lime, vanilla pure, copaiba and lavender. The only conclusion I have is that it smells like incense or something we use during the Hare Krishna Kirtans we used to host at my parents’ house when I was growing up. Whatever it is, Stress Away seems to work for me right now and I’m going to continue using it.

If you’re keen to learn more, hit up my pal Ana and she’ll be happy to answer more questions about essential oils.

I left Singapore for the US of A in 2013 and now live in Las Vegas with my indie game dev husband and our son Gummi Gumdrop. I am also probably much older than you think I am.
