Ok, so I know that I’ve barely scratched the surface on all the amazing benefits we’ve experienced in just a short month of using essential oils, but I have to put the single bottles on the back burner for a minute to shout from the rooftops about what is probably my favorite Young Living product so far: NingXia NITRO!
When I attended an Introduction to Essential Oils class, I happened to mention that we were using an energy-boosting product from a well-known supplement company. In response, I was given this little tube of NITRO to try, with directions to NOT drink it right then and there, unless I wanted to be up all night re-painting the house. Seriously? Um, ok. Sure, whatever.
Despite the outrageous claims, it was still an energy-boosting product, so I indeed did NOT drink it that night because I didn’t intend to be up all night doing anything – I like my sleep! In fact, I actually didn’t even try it at all!
Since Mike is on his feet all day at work and needs the energy boost more than I do, I gave the sample to him and he drank it before work the next day. Mind you, this was before we even decided to dive in and buy a starter kit or anything; we were still just learning. To make a long story short, we ended up buying a box of these little gems with our initial starter kit order, because Mike loved it that much.
Once our box arrived, sure I was curious and wanted to try it, but it sure didn’t excite me the way diffusing the oils did and plus, we only had 14 tubes, so I wanted to leave them for Mike to use throughout the month. Not to mention, I don’t have a very flowery history with energy-boosting products – they tend to not like me very much. The typical ones you see and hear so much about these days make me so jittery that I can seriously barely function. That is not fun to me or helpful in any way. Even a Venti-sized coffee at Starbucks makes me shaky, so I don’t even drink those. To say I was a little leery of a product with 3-4 hour energy boost claims, even if it was using pure, natural essential oils, was an understatement. Maybe this would just be a product that Mike uses, and not me. Nothing wrong with that, right?
Then, it happened. The day came that I had set aside to fully prepare the house for out-of-town Christmas company – laundry, house-cleaning, etc. And guess what? I just wanted to relax and do NOTHING that day. Sit. on. my. butt. all. day. Please. But as was the case for me that day, sometimes that’s just not an option.
Well, if there was ever going to be a perfect time to try one of these little tubes of energy and see if it was really worthy of the hype, that was the day. So, down the hatch! First off, yummy! I wasn’t sure what to expect in that area, but it was actually good! Second… where do we keep the painter’s tape!? Haha!! I really was ready to paint the house!
No joking, y’all. I was a house-cleaning fool! And I almost didn’t even realize it right away, because the energy was clean. It’s not like it shot me to the moon or anything – I wasn’t jittery or shaky! I just drank it and started cleaning and before I knew it, I realized I was going to town on my house. And what was so awesome was that it wasn’t just energy to keep moving and keep cleaning; it was mental focus! I was re-arranging and organizing things to be far more efficient in our house; I was tackling little projects that just kept getting “back-burnered” because we weren’t motivated enough before.
And as a self-professed organization and efficiency junkie, well, I can easily say I don’t ever want to be without NITRO in our house ever again!
Oh, and one more thing. I didn’t crash from it either. At some point that afternoon, I just realized that I was kinda moving at a regular pace once again, like I normally would. So, I finished up my laundry and that was that.
So, when we sat down to decide what to buy with our Essential Rewards order this month, it was a given that another box of NITRO would be included. But in the end, we decided to buy two boxes, so we don’t end up fighting over it!
On a side note, we are also buying a 2-pk of NingXia Red this month, mostly for its immune-boosting properties, but apparently if you put the NITRO in the Red and drink them together, you get more like a 6-8 hour boost instead of the 3-4 hours that the NITRO alone gives you! I can’t wait to try these together! Can you imagine what this is going to do for my trips to the gym!? Stay tuned!
