Oh my gosh you guys- Young Living announced a HUGE amount of fantastic new products at convention a few weeks ago in Salt Lake City! What a great time and a fantastic city, I cannot wait to go back next year!
The new products this year are SO EXCITING- including many things that members have been asking for for years! The great thing is Young Living were able to conduct clinical studies around these products so we are able to talk openly about their benefits!
First up- the most exciting product for me- Insect Repellent! YES! I live in New Hampshire surrounded by woods and this product is just what we needed. I had been making my own for several years but this product is much more potent than anything I could ever make. This is more of a serum, which means it clings to the surface of the skin longer and I believe this helps it with effectiveness. Don't let this price scare you- I fully expect this bottle to last my family of 4 all summer, a little goes a LONG way!
Next up: MINERAL SUNSCREEN!!
People went nuts when they announced this! A good sunscreen without harmful ingredients is very hard to find, and most mineral sunscreens go on very white and are hard to apply. Any parent out there knows applying sunscreen is up there with fun parenting activities like putting on snowsuits and brushing teeth! I am amazed how easily and fast this goes into skin without a white film left behind and nothing harmful!
This sunscreen contains SPF of 10 which may seem low, but did you know SPF has nothing to do with strength of the sunscreen, only the amount of time you can be out without reapplying or starting to burn?
Here is an article from the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep website on high SPF here
and an article on sunscreen safety here
nanoparticles and why this is a very dangerous aspect of sunscreens here
and why too much sunscreen is causing a whole other problem here
What if the sun is not our enemy after all?

Our next exciting product is the Lavederm After Sun Care This is perfect for soothing and nourishing skin after sun exposure, and this also has clinical trials that show this product is fantastic for soothing itchy bug bites too! As everything with Young Living, a little goes a LONG way!

Shutran 3 in 1 Men's Wash is based off the amazing smelling men's oil Shutran. This wash smells SO GOOD and is for hair, face and body. I brought this home from convention for my husband and I have been using it too! Shh don't tell him!
This comes in 2 sizes.

We also got a dazzling new diffuser!
Here are the new supplements! All of Young Living's supplements are TOP NOTCH- made for absorption (did you know most supplements are made with cheap, synthetic vitamins and most pass right through us, unused? Spend a little more for quality and actually feel the benefits you are hoping for!
With all supplements, doctors recommend giving 90 days before you will feel the full benefits.

SEEDLINGS is here- a wonderful line of truly clean and safe products for baby!
It is appalling to know some of the ingredients that are in baby products- especially names we *think* are trustworthy.
Did you know the reason why a very popular baby shampoo doesn't make babies cry? Because the product contains a NUMBING AGENT to prevent it, that numbs the eyes and keeps the tears away- not because it is gentle or safe!
All Seedlings products are scented with properly diluted, pure and gentle Lavender.
This product line designed for our smallest little ones is going to be HUGE!
Seedlings Baby Wash and Shampoo
Seedlings Baby Lotion
Seedlings Diaper Rash Cream
Seedlings Baby Wipes
Seedlings Baby Oil
And finally we have the biggest and most exciting product reveal of this year- MAKEUP!!
OH MY GOSH you guys, this was a really exciting moment when this was announced. Members have been asking for makeup for a long time, but Young Living doesn't just do something half way, they have to do it right.
2 years ago, a Young Living Crown Diamond named Melissa Poepping started her own small makeup line she was making herself out of her home. It was called Sweet Savvy Minerals and it was a truly clean mineral makeup line. I used mineral makeup and thought my brand was clean, but as I learned more I realized there were still ingredients that I preferred to avoid putting on my skin, my largest organ. Ingredients like Bismuth, Silica, Kaolin, animal sourced ingredients such as silks, and artificial colors!
So I started using the Sweet Savvy MInerals line and I was loving it, but as a home based business, her line was limited. This past year Young Living acquired her company and it is now Savvy MInerals by Young Living! Working together with Melissa, they have expanded the line and will continue to do so. The result is a beautifully created line of foundations, blushes, bronzers, eyeshadows, eyeliner/multitasker, lip glosses and lip sticks. Coming soon will be mascara and more colors. This line also includes a misting spray which can be used on brushes or mixed with the powders to create brighter colors and different effects.
This has EXPLODED and there are already huge Facebook groups dedicated just to the makeup line and how to use it.
Prices are comparable to other lines and if you have never used mineral makeup before, it is important to know that mineral makeup lasts for a very long time, because you use such a small amount at a time. For me, one foundation lasts a year. I do not use it every day, but most days I do.
