OH lookie, it's scented infused ethanol at a cheap price!
Scary how the label says 100% pure and natural then the box says toxic poisons that will kill aquatic life and blind you and should not be used on the skin and are toxic to the airway. What do they suggest you do with it? This is down right scary. Please, please read your labels on anything you bring into your home. Know where your essential oils come from and how they are made.
I was reading something one of my friends posted in a separate oil group. She really hit the nail on the head when she said Oils are NOT a swap out for medication. They are part of a bigger wellness lifestyle regime.
I too get asked almost daily what someone could use for an Oil instead of taking medication XYZ. It doesn't work that way. In the coming year I will be offering tips for healthier living including using your oils. When you start to make healthier choices you find that you don't need to run to the traditional doctors as much.
Really what my goal is in sharing all this information with you is to offer tips and tricks on bringing more balance to your lives. Hopefully you will seek out replacing toxic products in your home, personal care beauty products and what you use on your children.
I did not start using young living products with the idea of selling or marketing them. I didn't plan to make it a business and get a paycheck every month. I won't lie and say it's not nice to use that money to pay my family's grocery bill and car loans, but my ultimate goal has always been offering healthier choices for families. Maybe we can have a meeting soon on that topic too.
Give me some ideas of where your family struggles to make healthier choices or where your challenges are and let's tackle this topic together!
i LOVE leftovers. Mixing all my favorites together on one plate. Especially leftovers for breakfast. I don't dig traditional American breakfast food so I'm always happy to have dinner leftovers. Today I've got my 4 necessary good groups. Green veg (Brussel sprouts with Gomasio), orange veg (acorn squash with Vermont maple syrup and pomegranate seeds), salty smashed potatoes with a river of vegan butter and pumpkin pie with coconut whipped cream. Yes, pumpkin is it's own food group in my culinary book. What did you have for breakfast?
Feeling blessed to celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah with this bunch today. We taught our kids about unconditional love, race, religion and coexisting with others who may believe differently than you do. Zoë said it was okay that mom was "none Jewish" and that she still loved me. We had way too many gifts, lots of love, healthy food, games, coloring, singing competitions and are prepping for movie night. May you all feel as blessed, safe and happy as we do.
I am freaking out a little bit! My family has had a profound life changing ecperience with one essential oil. 7 years ago my child was struggling so badly with anxiety and we did not know what else to do to help him. Someone introduced us to this oil. It worked magic, like from the 1st moment we used it. Fast forward to now and do you know we STILL use this oil every single day! He sprays it on himself, rubs it into his neck, shoulders and feet and puts it in his diffuser every night. You can imagine how many bottles we have gone thru over the years. Well, it has been out of stock for many months now. The reformulated version just wasn't the same. We had a small stock as you do when something works well for your family. That stock was gone. Today, this product is BACK!!!
I encourage each and every one of you to try it. Especially if you have anxious issues or worrisome thoughts. We love the smell, but it is a strong patchouli smell so for some it takes getting used to. Patchouli is the 60's hippies smell. Think about all those pics of hippies and how chill they were. Yep, that is how this magic works. RUN and grab it now from the website while it is still in stock.

Thieves is quickly becoming a household name. You mention it and most people have at least heard of it. This gives people a chance to try young living products and fall in love with them. A great way for you to share. All you need is one bottle of concentrated thieves household cleaner. Grab some cute spray bottles and you have an extremely useful gift. It only takes one capful for every 2 cups of water. Pair it with a mini hand purifier and the all-purpose thieves spray. You now have what I call the perfect gift. I carry that spray with me everywhere. We spray the toilet handles, restaurant tables, steering wheel, gross children's hands, use it as a room freshener, to cover up stinky car odors, get rid of Starbucks smell and even spray it in my mouth when I don't feel fabulous. Spicy but amazing. Happy Holidays!❤️🌲❤️

Poo pourri number 2 bathroom spray! The amazing stink stopper spray-before-you-go wonder spritz. Another easy DIY.
Super cute to pair with a times best seller book, Barnes and Noble gift card or a stack of magazines. A confirmed proven fact this gift is appreciated by all men and those that have to live with them. ❤️🌲❤️🌲🌲❤️❤️
💩Do you have a partner who drops a bomb 💥💩 in the loo? Maybe it's you? Spritz this on the toilet water BEFORE you go and trap those odors in the bowl. This is a stink-fighting, non-toxic must. I carry one in my bag of wonders for on-the go help since a lady likes to be a lady.
recipe for 1 oz. bottle so adjust accordingly:
1) 1 teaspoon rubbing alcohol (can use vodka or witch hazel)-this helps oil and water from separating
2) 1 teaspoon vegetable glycerine (can use castile soap) -this helps create a thick barrier to trap the stink
3) 10 drops of your choice of essential oils. I prefer 8lemongrass and 2 Bergamot. Maybe you like peppermint or how about a woodsy aroma? If that is not enough fumigate your feisty fecal funk, feel free to add more!
4) Fill the rest of the bottle with water preferably bottled or distilled water just to prolong the life of it since tap water isn't without fault
Number one Shake and spritz 5-6 sprays onto the toilet water BEFORE you go number two. This is not a room freshener but a stink trapper. Proceed with your bathroom needs then flush. The fumes are trapped and will go down the drain with the solid waste leaving him wondering does your poo really smell like roses after all?🌹
Vegetable glycerin from amazon, rubbing alcohol from your local store and a safe plastic bottle.

Shower scrub! Practically every adult on the planet bathes or showers their skin so there isn't one person who wouldn't use this. You can use either salt or sugar. Get the slightly chunkier pink salt and mix it with the small granular kind. Textures are great. Turbinated brown sugar mixed with plain brown sugar-different textures. You can even stir together and make it a sugar/salt scrub. Layer pink salt and white salt or sugar to create a candy cane appearance.
The possibilities are endless! The ratio is the same. 1 cup of sugar or salt to 1/2 cup oil. 2 cups sugar or salt to 1 cup of carrier oil. You get it? I personally love to use pink Himalayan salt and magnesium flakes together in sweet almond oil.
Super cute to make a little body care basket of goodies. Add a body spritz (water, witch hazel and EO ), the salt soak we made the lotion bar we made and a sweet handwritten note.
