Are You Ready For An Essential Oils Journey?
If you’re in Parkes and have heard anyone talk about Young Living Essential Oils, you’ve probably also heard of the Wild Thyme Essentials Tribe.
This local group of approximately 100 people form part of a wider community of over 4,000 essential oil users in the Wild Thyme Tribe who span the globe and support one another through education and practicing natural wellness with Young Living essential oils.
A number of local members of the Wild Thyme Essentials Tribe will be hosting an event on Friday, 21st September at 14 Hodges Street at 7:30pm for people interested in learning more about essential oils. The local members will talk about how oils have helped support them and their families.
There will be a discussion on every day uses of essential oils including supporting seasonal wellness and emotional and mental wellness with essential oils, as well as information on the Young Living difference – the Seed to Seal promise, which encapsulates the gold standard in ethics and sustainability and the highest quality essential oils.
Come and enjoy an uplifting sensory experience in a relaxed environment while you learn all about Young Living Essential Oils. Three lucky people who RSVP to this event will receive a trio of 10ml flower-infused essential oil rollers on the night of the event.
Eat Your Eyes Healthy
Eye sight is vital to all of us, and you can boost it by eating the following foods:
• Almonds are a rich source of vitamin E, zinc, fibre, iron, magnesium and potassium.
• Citrus and berries are the ultimate sources of vitamin C, and considered the healthiest food for your eyes.
• Eggs are packed full of protein, and also provide us with lutein, vitamin E and omega 3.
• Leafy Greens contain high amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin – these antioxidants have shown to lower risk of development of macular degeneration and cataracts.
• Fatty Fish are rich in DHA, which is an acid found in the retina. These essential fatty acids help drain fluid from the eye thus decreasing the risk of high pressure.
Real Yoga With Real Benefits

Yoga is fantastic for your body, but also great for your mind for lifting your spirits and allowing you to find peace. I provide a variety of yoga classes and times – see YogaMon on Facebook. Come give it a try – forget the scary poses you see in glossy magazines, this is real yoga with
