Young Liv­ing Es­sen­tial Oils

Cebu Daily News - - LIFE -

THE Cebu City Mar­riott Ho­tel chooses one day in the year to fete the “mag­nif­i­cents” of the Life­style pages. This year it was on Septem­ber 7 at the Gu­mamela Room from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event served to in­tro­duce the au­gust group to Young Liv­ing, a world of es­sen­tial oils, as ex­plained by a group of ladies, all “savvy oilis­tas.”

The es­sen­tial oils are ex­tracted from liv­ing plants and blos­soms. The prod­uct comes from the USA. As we ar­rived we were as­signed health and well­ness ad­vo­cates who presided over three small round ta­bles.

Nelia Neri was with Cebu Mar­riott gen­eral man­ager Patrick Car­roll, Faith Teo from Sin­ga­pore, and Eloise Her­nan­dez from Manila.

Flor Yn­clino, Mila Espina and Cookie New­man were with Win­nie Fan­non from Sin­ga­pore, and Nico Ve­lasquez, the ho­tel’s mar­ket­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tions of­fi­cer.

I was with Ching­gay Utzur­rum, the ho­tel’s di­rec­tor of sales and mar­ket­ing Frances Al­fa­fara plus Trixie Yu and Mae Roma who are with the Young Liv­ing out­fit in Cebu.

Patrick wel­comed all, Nico was all ef­fer­ves­cence, and Frances was most amused with the repartee that bounced from ta­ble to ta­ble.

Motto of the prod­uct is “chang­ing the world one drop at a time.” This was ex­em­pli­fied by the use of a few drops on an oil vial ac­cord­ing to our tastes, or ad­ven­tur- ous bent. We did our own con­coc­tions with glee­ful re­sults.

Take Laven­der. It is for an­ti­sep­tic use, mi­nor bumps, hair growth, dry and nor­mal skin, sta­bi­lizes heart en­ergy, sup­ports the liver, pro­motes rest­ful sleep, and calms you down.

Take Fran­ki­cen­cense, the most ex­pen­sive of the oils. It sup­ports and helps im­mune health, brain health, cel­lu­lar health, breast health, over­comes sad­ness, en­hances wor­thi­ness, sup­ports Qi­flow, stress re­lief, ma­ture skin and air­way sup­port.

A pop­u­lar one was Pan­away, which stands for pain away. It sup­ports and helps in the fol­low­ing way: over­worked mus­cles, joints, lig­a­ments, emo­tional pain, and over­comes ex­haus­tion.

We could go on, there are more than thirty, and in­fi­nite com­bi­na­tions. We had to tear our­selves from this lab­o­ra­tory and par­take a gourmet lunch amid a pro­fu­sion of blooms by Sim­ple Wishes. Honey Loop caught up with the group at this point.

Ex­ec­u­tive chef Cha­chol Suai­som had pre­pared an out­stand­ing menu. At the end of the repast he came to ask what dish we had liked best. Ev­ery­thing! He then ex­plained the var­i­ous fla­vors he had blended to ob­tain the spe­cial taste. In the end, we all went home with a birth­day cake each, and a Young Liv­ing Kit of es­sen­tial oils and essences. In­ter­ested? Call Mae Roma (63) 977-810-1855; or Trixie Yu at (63) 917-855-8460.
