Apple Cider, Young Living Style

With the cold, cloudy, rainy-sleety-snowy weather today, a warm pick-me-up in the afternoon is perfect. Even some mornings when the cozy warmth from the wood stove hasn't quite reached all the way to the kitchen and I need something warm in my belly, I love to reach for this delicious combo.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day and today feels like a perfect day to just take it a little easier as I work towards getting things ready for our relaxing day at home. After lunch and story-time (the girls were antsy and needed some snuggles), my oldest 2 helped me start making bread. After they were both tucked in for their naps I fixed myself a mug of yummy to sip on while I finished the bread and the snow fell.

I use a mug full of hot cider and add 1 drop of Young Living's Thieves Essential Oil blend and 1 drop of Young Living's Orange Essential Oil.  Stir them in and it tastes just liked spiced cider. So yummy. Even my 4 year old loves this! I do recommend stirring each time before you sip or the oil pools and the Thieves can feel hot on your lips. *You can mix up a large batch in a crockpot to serve a crowd.

Not only is this recipe delicious and easy, but it has health benefits too!  Thieves does an excellent job at supporting the immune system and Orange contains a whole slew of support for your body and mind. I love to use Orange to support mental clarity and alertness. Orange is such a happy smell it can't help but put a smile on your face and some pep in your step!

During this time of year with the extra busyness, traveling, parties, being around other people more than usual, etc. I am so thankful to have Young Living's 100% Pure, Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils to support my family's health and wellness.
