I'm not the gal who's going to rid my home of allllll the chemicals in a weekend. I personally love some of my beauty products like I love JIF peanut butter. But that doesn't mean I'm not going to try and cut down on the amount of chemicals in our home where I can. So when I find good products that are comparable, or better ( as in this case ) I'm practically doing cheers when I get to kick some toxins that would've been on my kids bodies to the curb. And this Friends... this was a HUGE little win. The lavender lotion we use now actually moisturizes way better, and it smells amazing.
Because... girls night. Apparently I shouldn't have a cocktail on an empty stomach. Lesson learned. And now... this magic in a bottle. This bottle and my peace and calming roller were the keys to showing me that essential oils really worked. I rubbed it on the back of my neck, and wha-la 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 If you want to try some for all of your sore muscles and tension, I'm happy to pass on my wholesale savings so you can get it for just $28 including shipping. Comment below and let me know if you'd like me to add one to my order for you.
Amazing tip for my fellow flower lovers. 2 drops of purification in your vase's water, and your blooms will last a whole lot longer! ❤️🌷❤️🌷❤️
Incorporating oils into your daily routine doesn't have to be hard. It can definitely feel overwhelming, but thankfully we have the most incredible, helpful, passionate, kind team on the planet. They've helped make this journey so easy and doable and I couldn't be more thankful. It's now my mission to help demystify oils for as many families as possible, and get them out of the box and being used. This is my morning routine with oils. After shower I dry brush my body and put cel-lite magic on areas needing smoothing. (Be careful to not put it on areas that will see sun in the next 12 hours) Then I roll stress away on the back of my neck for you know... mama tension, and pro plus on my wrists for hormone and mood support. That baby keeps me even keeled like magic. Then frankincense and thieves on the bottom of everyone's feet... kids too. These are super immunity boosters and help keep the sick bugs away. Mama's magic is my peace and calming roller and that one goes on our toddlers feet to help with all day sanity, and bedtime. ( I do this morning and night) My optional ones are the spring relief roller if there is a ton of pollen, and my bye bye bugs roller if we will be outside a lot. Allllllll of this literally takes maybe 3-4 minutes and sets us up for a day of better moods, happy hearts, and strong immune systems. What's your favorite oil? Or routine?
Let's face it. Mama life is HARD! It's the best, and also most stressful thing I've ever done. But there are ways I've recently discovers to make it a little easier, ease the tension, and yes, even sleep through the night, and mellow out those temper tantrums. Skeptical? I feel you. I was too! Until I became so desperate I was willing to try anything. And once I did, I was hooked. So in case you're in a similar boat, I wanted to let you know that one of my best friends, and the creative genius behind all the cute roller labels I use ... @thecolorfulhome is hosting an intro to oils Facebook class soon. If you've been interested in oils but overwhelmed, or if you have a starter kit that is collecting dust because you have no idea how to use it, this class will be PERFECT for you! Head on over and leave a comment on her picture like this one and she will get you all set up!
Confession. Over the last 8 months I gained 20 pounds because I hunkered down behind my computer to write my book. At the same time, my health hit an all time low and my joints started screaming at me daily and keeping me from living the life I loved. Over the winter I had had enough, and I just wanted my life back. I wanted to be able to play ball with my kids, and write a note without my hands cramping up from pain. So I decided to make some changes. And I started with my eating. I cut out as much dairy, gluten, and sugar as possible and you know what... it's been easier than I thought. I won't lie... the first 5 days I wanted to crawl in a hole, but I feel soooo much better now. The chocolate protein powder from young living is sooooo yummy. (You can grab your own by clicking the link in my profile) Honestly I mix it with peanut butter and it tastes like peanut butter moo'd from jamba. I'm already down about 12 pounds, and even more importantly, I feel so much better. Anyone else making a diet / lifestyle change right now? I want to cheer you on!
Because sanitizing your hands doesn't have to mean slathering you body, and your children's bodies with nasty synthetic cancer causing chemicals. Yuck. Thank God for this.
Starting to put together some of my Oils Made Easy welcome gifts for the folks that have said yes to getting healthy goodness in their homes. My welcome gift baskets are full of all the things I wish I had when I first got my starter kit, and enable you to actually open your kit and put everything to use right away! Anyone else out there who's purchased a kit and had no idea what to do with it for months? Just me? It's my hope and prayer that by educating, equipping and encouraging all of our team members, we won't have any dusty kits sitting on shelves from overwhelm and uncertainty. Any of this ring true? Have you ever had questions about how these things are even used? I'd love to hear from you. And if you're ready to dive in, and want to get my welcome gift basket for FREE, click the link in my profile and grab your starter kit. I will send your goodies on their way! Welcome bag includes all this goodness except the thieves cleaner bottle. We send out a small jar of it that's enough for you to make up one spray bottles worth. 🙌🏻
• Focus • Tummy • Sleep • whatever troubles your kiddos are having, there's probably a way to naturally help them, and YOU.! These oils from the YL kidscents line are basically tiny miracles. They are predilluted so we always know they are safe for all ages. I ordered a pack of roller tops and exchanged all 3 of these kids today for easy applications on the bottom of tiny feet.
I'm what you might call... a lotion snob. If it's too watery, too oily, too fragrant, or doesn't actually soak down into my skin, it's dead to me. For the last ten ish years I have been a hard core body butter or cetaphil lotion lover. I know... I know... but it was the only thing that worked. Until now. This gem is my new favorite thing in the world. And it's amazing slathered all over the wee ones after their bath before bed. Bring on all the calm feelings and soft skin. I feel like I'm winning at motherhood today.
