Daddies may not always be the first to jump on the wagon of oiling. They carefully keep tabs at the side pondering with their analytical and protective aura the extent of oiling their spouses are indulging on themselves and even more so on their precious little ones. But hey, once they hear about the science; or for that matter experience first hand the efficacy of the potent drops of healing – they have often become the biggest advocates. So let’s celebrate Father’s Day… skip the power drills or geeky gadgets this time; but instead bless them with their own little power-packed bottles of manly goodness (…and of course many other ultra cool stuff they may have secretly longed for!)

Wow… you won’t believe it but I took 4 tries before I managed to get this recipe right. But thanks to all the tries, I also discovered how to make Ning Xia Red Jelly!🙂 AHAHAH which N simply adores to eat! She doesn’t like to drink NXR that much so I was really surprised when she offered to eat up ALL the failed gummies (they were actually NXR jellies! hahah)
Anyhow, I finally did get it right, and its really yummy! 😍 It makes a good snack and N asked me earlier if she could eat 10! Of course I said no… haha but its much better to eat this than any other gummy out there in the market! 💪🏻
So here’s the recipe:
Ning Xia Red Gummies
- 0.5 cup Ningxia Red
- 0.5 cup Orange Juice or Apple Juice
- 4 tablespoons of Gelatin Powder
- 4 drops of Orange Essential Oil
- 3 tablespoons of Honey
- In a saucepan over medium heat, combine Ningxia Red and apple juice together.
- Add in the gelatin power and whisk everything together until completely melted.
- Add in the honey and whisk again until well combined.
- Remove from the heat, allowing it to cool down, then add in some orange essential oil.
- Pour the warm mixture into silicon molds and refrigerate for about an hour till hard.
Note: If your gummy is not hard enough, simply add another tablespoon of gelatin powder to your next try.
Here’s sharing some awesome facts abt the NXR drink. It’s really not JUST a NingXia drink. It is a POWERFUL antioxidant drink. Everyone should really try it!

ESSENTIAL OILS FOR INTIMACY
Which Essential Oils to Enhance Sexual Intimacy?
This post is contributed by One Drop member – Connie Chua
Sex is a beautiful gift that God has given to a couple under a marriage covenant and I believe it is not only sacred, it can be the most intimate and exhilarating moment that a couple can ever experience! However, having grown up in a conservative Asian culture where sex is hardly ever brought up for discussion, I sincerely feel that we should not feel embarrassed to talk about the sexual issues we face. How I wish that more people had been more open about it so my hubby and I would not have fumbled through most part of our married life!
Nevertheless, it is never too late! Ever since I started using Young Living Essential Oils, I’ve been trying different oils for different purposes. Yes, I started to use them to first help support immunity level of my 4 children. Then when my hubby became more used to the different scents and got into being used as a “guinea pig” whenever I need to practise the massage techniques that I have learnt, I began to explore more oils and supplements that support our overall well-being as well.
With an improved health and vitality after adding essential oils and supplements from Young Living into our daily regime, I can’t help but notice that our activities between the sheets get more and more pleasurable and exciting, too! Haha, talk about discovering such great side effects of using essential oils! I became more intrigued and went to research more. So, what are the essential oils that I have been using? What about the supplements that I have mentioned earlier? Let me show you which oils I am using for myself first followed by the oils I apply on him before I touch on the supplements (pun not intended).
Firstly, Progessence Phyto Plus, or PPP for short, is highly recommended! It not only has made regular monthly visits by Aunt Flo a painless issue, my PMS seems to have subdued significantly. Even the usual tenderness on my breasts a few days before the period somehow became unnoticeable that I only realized its absence after sometime! Hence, hubby gets fewer rejections than before. (Hint: what a great gift for your wife! :D)
PPP is a serum made using a special blend of frankincense, peppermint and bergamot essential oils and progesterone from wild yam plus vitamin E. Simply apply one to two drops onto the inner arms and ankles twice a day. You can read more here.
Secondly, diffusing Joy sets me in the right mood for love and cuddles! It’s a blend of Geranium, Ylang Ylang, Jasmine and Rose essential oils! How not to feel feminine and attractive? In Indonesia, petals of Ylang Ylang flowers are scattered on the bed of newly weds. This blend helps to increase libido and balance out the crazy hormones making me feel more calm and in control.
Thirdly, I like to put on either Transformation or Believe blend onto my diffuser necklace and declare over myself that I am attractive; I am blessed so I can bless others; I am beautiful because I am fearfully and wonderfully made by my Papa God; I have gifts that made me unique; etc. These declarations are powerful and the scent added simply evoke powerful stimulus into my limbic system! I believe this act of applying the oils and verbal declarations has been helping me to act upon the beliefs that I have over myself. With such confidence being built upon myself, I find myself to be in a position to give love rather than waiting to be loved. It also helps me to discard any sexual inhibition that I had previously. So BOOMZ! Our lovemaking has been so transformed!
One last oil that I highly recommend is Shutran! Oh my, the scent of this powerful blend drives my adrenaline really high and gets me all excited for the pleasures thinking about that big O! It’s certainly worth investing as a drop behind my earlobes and his is sufficient to get into the grooves!
Next are the oils for my hubby. He, being an active jogger, has complaints of muscles aches and pains. Long usage in front of a computer also has caused him much stiffness on his neck and shoulders. Well, most probably due to bad posture. So, I applied essential oils like Idaho Blue Spruce and Cypress with v6 oil or Ortho Sports oil and massaged onto his aching muscles. Little did I know that these two added extra boost to his testosterone level and better blood circulation to you-know-where!
Another oil that I have been religiously applying on his outer ankles is Mister after I read that it is good for his prostate health. This is certainly a must as I believe that prevention is better than cure! This blend was originally formulated to support healthy prostate function and balance male energy. Apparently, this has increased his libido gas tank and helped his soldier to stay firm longer!
What about the supplements? Yes, supplements are also critical as wanting to achieve orgasm requires an extra bit of physical energy besides being healthy. Hence, drinking Ningxia Red and taking Sulfurzyme regularly is a must for me. Hubby took a while to jump in the bandwagon, but has found himself with more energy even after midnight! He used to be totally drained off by 9pm. What a drastic change!
We have been married close to 22 years and I can honestly say that our sex life has never been as satisfying as it is now. It is not so much an age issue but rather an overall health and wellness issue plus a greater level of trust and intimacy built over the years. Let me end off by sharing some oily potions that have added some “omph” in achieving that big O.
*Inner Thigh Potion for Her
20 drops of Joy
15 drops of Lime
10 drops of Cypress
25 drops of carrier oil
*Inner Thigh Potion for Him
20 drops of Idaho Blue Spruce
10 drops of Cypress
5 drops of Rosemay
5 drops of Nutmeg
25 drops of carrier oil
Put each potion into an empty 15ml roller bottle and massage over each other’s thighs and all the way up to the leg crease. Have a sensational rolling good time

MY CONVENTION EXPERIENCE 2017
This post is contributed by One Drop member – Ranna Seah.
This year, I was prompted by Kai and KerYew to go for Convention at Utah – Salt Lake City. The prompt is pretty powerful and I felt sort of anointed as I get my lazy ass moving in booking my convention tickets, hotel, air tickets, ESTAs AND I was even brave enough as to book for Heidi (my 7 years old daughter) to join me! But I will chuck her into kid’s camp though. Kids camps tickets are even more expensive than my convention ticket…but I wanted to do this because:
- The convention happened in June and it’s school holiday!
- Heidi has a very chirpy personality and I just know she will definitely enjoy the culture of the kids’ camp.
Very brave indeed…haha but Heidi and me were also very lucky to share a hotel room with Faith & Jonathan, and as they had been to convention before, I felt safe being around them.
So I hope the following tips I am going to share will be useful to you should you be attending convention next year onwards. 🙂
#1 Prepare Your Luggage Space
For this trip I was very grateful for Kai’s constant reminder to bring bigger luggage. Convention always means new product launch…so it’s a BUY BUY BUY trip!
As Heidi and me were allowed 23kg x 2 each. And in US, the airline check-ins don’t weight all your luggage together and balance the weights. Nooo…they want you to keep to strictly 23kg per luggage! Like say you have one at 20kg and another one at 26kg. You have to shift that 3 kg from the 26kg to the 23kg luggage. Get it?
They are nice enough to let you repack your luggage and adjust the weight though…hehe…so do make sure your luggage is a good hefty size. The cloth type that Faith & Jonathan brought are better than my hard case type and can pack in more stuffs. Faith mentioned you can get those luggage at Giant for a really good price.
#2 Ningxia Nitro and Ningxia Red
Again I have to be very grateful to Faith & Jon here again…because of our time difference, we will definitely experience jetlag while in US. So Faith kept pampering me with Ningxia Nitro and Ningxia Red…wow…combining these 2 really kick the jetlag to one corner sia! No joke!
I also took out Brain Power to roll on my head stem and behind my ears during those convention sharing sessions.
#3 US Hotels Do No Come With Electric Kettle (most of them, we think)
So do bring your own small, handy and portable one if you need to make your Slique tea or…in Heidi’s case…milo…
#4 Utah Weather
Utah is a weird place…in my opinion that is…the first 2 days when we were there, the weather was rainy and chilly. Somewhere around 14 to 16 Degrees Celsius. So it was rather wet and cold during the first 2 days. But on the 3rd day, the weather took a sunny turn and it was bright and sunny but with rather piercing rays you can feel on your skin. I don’t really know how to describe it. It’s not really hot, rather cool even…but the sun rays’ are rather piercing and painful if you stay under it too long. However, the weather will take a dip in the evening so be prepared to have your sweater/cardigan/jacket on when that happens at around 6pm. So make sure you are prepared for all the various weather changes.
#5 Collecting Orders at Convention
I am not sure if things will change next year, but for this year, we can lock in our orders online, submit and then wait for email notification before we can go over to pick up our orders. So I placed my order on day 01 night after the announcement of the new products and by day 02, I was able to collect all my orders. The orders fitted nicely in my luggage and since my hotel was rather near convention, I just make a quick dash back and then return to attend my next class. So it also does benefit to stay near the conference.
There are some really nice and traditional cafes around Salt Lake City and I really wished I have had done more research!!! I don’t really take my lunch inside the Convention Center. The best lunch I enjoyed was my packed lunch (my coffee and croissant sandwich from Eva’s Bakery) with Diane. It’s very filling and took me 2 meals to finish it. The pizza at the City Creek food court is really good too. I really enjoyed it.
Oh and that time when I was early at the training hall cos I packed my lunch, I made 4 new friends there~ Young Living Members are really so nice and sweet…hehehe…
Last but not least, cos June is summertime sale in Utah, I feel that I shouldn’t have packed so much clothes! I should leave the space for new purchase at GAP or H&M. The sundresses are so cute!!! I bought 2 for Heidi~
Most of the shops in Salt Lake City are close on Sundays. So please do your research to avoid disappointment.
In summary, Heidi and I had really enjoyed our experience at the convention even though I wished I had planned better and visit the lovely cafes. There is one really nice classic cafe at Lion House which I chanced upon when I was walking around and taking photos with Heidi. I wished I had just sit down and order a cake or something. I thought I could go back again on Sunday but alas…it’s closed on Sunday. So be sure to plan and enjoy Salt Lake City as well as the convention~
Oh and I managed to squeeze into the Children’s Discovery Museum with Heidi before they close for the day. That was one of her highlight for the trip! 🙂
Hope you’ve enjoyed my article and tips for a good convention experience!
