Did you know medical research estimates as much as 90 percent of illness and disease is stress-related?1 High blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and heart disease have been linked to stress factors. Stress can affect hormones, sleep, digestion, immune function, mental health, and more. Do any of these things sound familiar to you? This is where I was seven years ago and why I made JOY the premise of my life.

Young Living Essential Oil Spotlight
Today’s spotlight Young Living Essential Oil is a favorite! Stress Away™ essential oil’s aromatic experience begins with a blend of Lime essential oil and vanilla extract, which make this blend so unique. Stress Away also includes Copaiba, which has a history of beneficial properties in topical application; Lavender, with its refreshing and calming scent; and Cedarwood, which features the powerful plant constituent cedrol. These ingredients are expertly blended with the exotic scent of Ocotea, a unique Ecuador-sourced essential oil.2 One of my fondest memories of Stress Away is when my daughter and I had a very intense, eventful day. We both raced to the cabinet and grabbed the bottle of Stress Away and inhaled it. We felt the immediate release of tension in the neck and shoulders along with a “release” down the spine. It has been a favorite ever since!
J.O.Y. in Action
Ready for stress relief? Are you ready to place your worries and anxieties in God’s hands? Place 1-2 drop of Stress Away oil into the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together. Cup your hands over your nose and mouth (leave a 2-5 inch space between your hands and face), and inhale deeply for 5 counts, hold for 1 count, and exhale for 8 counts. Massage your neck and shoulders with your hands. Repeat three times. As you inhale, pray “I will not worry about anything; instead, I will pray about everything. I will tell God what I need, and thank him for all He has done for me. Then I will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything I can understand. His peace will guard my heart and mind as I live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 NLT (reworded in first person).
Additional Tip: Add 4-8 drops of Stress Away to your diffuser before bed or after a long day. Make a Stress Away rollerball with 15 drops of Stress Away topped off with V-6 carrier oil. Carry your rollerball in your purse for on-the-go stress relief. Roll on your wrists, behind ears, and back of neck. Want more ideas? Bath salts!
