What’s one of the first things you do to get summer ready?  Well, for myself and my daughter we like to start the summer off with a fresh, new pedicure.  We can’t get to the nail salon as often as we would like, so for the in-between weeks we like to have these recipes made up for us to use at home to keep our feet looking & feeling amazing!

Okay, that’s it for today!  We will be back tomorrow to continue our Summer Series!!

Outdoor FREEdom!!!!

Who loves being outdoors? 🙋🏻

Who loves being outdoors and not having to deal with outdoor annoyances? 🙋🏻

Who loves spraying icky bug sprays all over themselves and kiddos? 🙅🏻👎🏼

I’m giving the first person that signs up with me on this amazing oily journey with the Premium Starter Kit a 15ml bottle of Citronella Essential Oil!!!! Along with all of the resource materials & goodies that I provide all of my new members to get them started on their oily life journey!!!

Here’s my fav recipe to use when making our spray bottle of Outdoor Spray.  It stays by the backdoor of our home so that whenever someone is heading out they can easily find it!

I also like to spray around the border of my back porch when I want to head outside for some “back porch sitting & drink my coffee”

We love working in the yard & my daughter especially loves planting new flowers!  I’m SO thankful that I have a healthier, chemical-free option to spray whenever she’s headed out to sit in the dirt and do some planting!!

Our whole family enjoys sitting by the fire at night, but Oh-Em-Gee those outdoor annoyances LOVE us!!  We now can take our outdoor spray with Citronella Essential Oil outside with us!

We also love taking it with us on family outings and vacations!!!

To the FIRST person that purchases their oil kit from me is going to get a FREE 15ml bottle of this AH-MAZING Citronella Essential Oil, so that you and your family can enjoy being outdoors as much as our family does!!

Get Summer Ready Series ~ Enjoy the Outdoors

We all love being outdoors with our family, and who doesn’t love that amazing vitamin c we get from the sun?  But, we don’t always love the after-effects that we may get from the amazing sun!  This little bottle of LavaDerm has become one of my favorite Young Living products to have on hand not only in the summer, but all year long!  My kiddos would live outside if I would let them, so they seem to always have that sun-kissed skin that needs a little bit of soothing and that’s when LavaDerm comes into play!  It contains Lavender essential oil, which you can read all about right here.  Favorite tip: add 20 drops of Myrhh and Carrot Seed essential oils to your bottle of LavaDerm for a cooling sensation and to help soothe & protect from the sun! **not to be substituted for shade and/or sunscreen**

Who wants to enjoy the outdoors annoyance free?  **Me raising hands!!!**  I always have a bottle of this diy outdoor spray sitting by our backdoor so that when any of us are on our ways outdoors we can spray our clothing with it!  I love these bottles to make our diy recipes when we need a spray bottle!

Did you know that Peppermint essential oil when applied to the skin provides a cooling sensation?  It’s so nice on those HOT summer days!  We’ve been doing a lot of landscaping in our backyard the past few weeks so this bottle of “cooling spray” has been used a lot by our whole family!  I also like to take this to the beach in our beach bag and also when we spend the day at an amusement park!  This particular spray bottle was purchased at Target, but I also like these bottles!  All you need to make this cooling spray is Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil, water and a spray bottle!!  Easy peasy!!

So, I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time sometimes being on a boat!  Sometimes the motion is just too much for me!  I try to always have a bottle of DiGize & Peppermint in my oil bag whenever I know I’m going to be on the water!  It helps to make me feel better and as though I’m back on land!  Oh, sweet land!!!!!!!

And let me tell you about Lemon essential oil!  Lemon essential oil is a must have in my little “mommy tool kit”  Got something sticky you’re wanting gone….rub a drop of Lemon essential oil on it; Got something stinky that you’re wanting to go away….add 2-3 drops to your diffuser or to a cotton ball and Oh Em Gee it smells so amazing and refreshing!!  So, if you’re out fishing and you want to rid your hands of that fishy smell, make sure you have a bottle of Lemon in your bag and it only takes a drop or 2 and wallah, the fishy smell is gone!

Okay, that’s it for today!  We will be back tomorrow to continue our Summer Series!!  We will be learning how to get our feet flip-flop ready!!!!

National Stress Awareness Day

Did you know?  Today is National Stress Awareness Day.  How many of you have stress? {raising my hand as I type this}

stress

Some of the statistics that I found while researching stress are alarming to say the least!

  • 44% of Americans feel more stressed today than they did 5 years ago {again, me raising hand}
  • 1 in 5 Americans experience “Extreme Stress” ~ shaking; heart palpitations; depression
  • work stress causes 10% of strokes
  • a 60% increase in productivity over the past 20 years plus stagnant wages equals working harder for less $
  • 3 out of 4 doctor visits are for stress related symptoms
  • stress increases the risk of heart disease by 40%; heart attacks by 25% and strokes by 50%
  • 44% of us are losing sleep because of stress

It’s CRAZY!!!  Stress is literally killing us!!  But, there are some things that we can all do to try and lessen our stress.

Tip #1: Figure out your stress triggers.  You may not be able to change the stress triggers in your life, but if you can identify them then you can work on ways to better handle them.

Tip #2: Change how you plan your time.  Make a daily schedule for yourself.  I am loving this planner because I can include so much more than even just my daily schedule in it.  I can write down my goals, and it even has a place for your vision board!!  I like to write my schedule, or to-do list for the day the night before so that as soon as I get up the next day I know exactly what I need to get done.  This automatically makes my day start better which in turn helps me to be less stressed.

Tip #3: Address some of the causes of your stress.  Like I mentioned in tip #1, you can’t always change the stress triggers, but if you can resolve or improve some of the things in your life you may be less stressed.

Tip #4: Try and accept the things you cannot change.  I’ve always said that everything happens for a reason.  Well, even the bad things or not so pleasant things in your life happen for a reason.  So, you are better off and will be way less stressed if you can approach life with the mind set that some things aren’t meant to be stressed about and then that way you can focus your time and energy on more positive things.

Tip #5: EXERCISE! EXERCISE! EXERCISE!!  I’m telling ya, on the days that I do exercise I feel AMAZE-BALLS!!!  You would think that I would have my bootie in the gym every single day as good as I feel afterwards, but sadly I don’t.  I try, but some days are just a little too crazy, but on those crazy days that I can’t make it into the gym I still try to do something active, even if it’s just walking to the mailbox instead of stopping on the way in from my car, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator, etc.

Tip #6: Drink LOTS of water!!!  I notice that on days where I don’t constantly have my water bottle with me drinking it all day then I feel worn down and stressed.  Water is amazing for our bodies and we should all drink tons of it!!!  One of my most fav ways to drink my water is by adding Young Living Essential Oils to it.  I especially love adding about 2 drops of Grapefruit essential oil to my water each day.  It tastes amazing and it also helps to curb my appetite, which means I’m not wanting to snack all day on my kiddos’ cookies!

grapefruit

Tip #7: Use Young Living Essential Oils on a daily basis to help assist in lessening your stressful life!  I began on this oily life journey over a year ago primarily when I was searching for a healthy alternative to support my son’s seasonal symptoms.  I had no idea the impact they would end up having on my entire family.  We now all use them every single day.  I constantly have a diffuser running in our kitchen, which seems to always be the most popular place in our house.  In the diffuser I like to diffuse our oils that help support a happy, stress-free environment such as Lavender, Stress Away, Bergamot, Believe, Lemon, Tangerine, Joy. I try to keep at least one of those essential oils or blends in that diffuser running 24/7 to keep our home a positive environment as much as possible!  I also like to make rollerball blends with several different Young Living essential oils together to help support my daily life.  I love using these rollerball bottles.

A couple of my favorite rollerball blends that I’ve made and use DAILY include a “be calm” blend which I used lavender, patchouli, stress away and vetiver in it with our amazing V-6 Carrier oil in it.  The other blend I made is my “happy” blend which includes ylang ylang, orange, lavender, stress away and bergamot.  These 2 rollerball bottles stay with me at ALL times!!!!!!  I recently had some dental work done and I had both of them in my hands the whole time during the procedure applying and sniffing as needed!!! My dentist told me when it was over that I could just leave those with her….she LOVED the smell of them so much!!!!

So, I wanted to offer y’all a little something to help out with everyone’s stress on this National Stress Awareness Day.  For anyone that joins me on this wonderfully, amazing oily journey with the purchase of the Young Living Premium Starter Kit I am going to send you one of my special “Stress Free” blends that I mentioned above in one of my favorite rollerball bottles for FREE!  But, this is TODAY ONLY!!!!  Make sure that you head on over to my essential oils page and learn more about what these amazing essential oils and products can do for you and your family.  At that bottom of that page you will see what all I send to you to get your started on your oily life journey (including one of my special rollerball blends!!!!!!!)…and just know that I don’t just sign you up and then abandon you!  NO, I am always here for you and will be sending you emails, texts, connecting with you via our private facebook groups and we have the most amazing community of oily friends that you can always find the help you need!!!

Wool Dryer Balls with Essential Oils

Ditch the dryer sheets and switch to wool dryer balls with essential oils!!  You won’t be disappointed!!  

How do wool dryer balls work?

Wool dryer balls work by bouncing around in your dryer, lifting & separating the clothing and increasing hot air flow.  This helps to dry your clothes quicker which saves you money on your energy bill.

For a few months now I’ve been on a journey of removing as many harsh chemicals from our home & daily lives as I can.  Fabric sheets are something that I’ve ALWAYS used to soften our clothing, help with having to do less ironing, cut down on the drying time which saves us money on our energy bill.  But, with my research I’ve discovered that they contain very harsh chemicals which stays on the clothing and then is touching your skin all day.  I’m so thankful that I now have these little dryer balls and have ditched those dryer sheets!  I cannot believe how awesome these little wool dryer balls are and how much time they’ve saved me!  My dryer runs probably half the time it used to when I was using dryer sheets.

I love adding a drop or two of our Young Living Essential Oils to each dryer ball.  And I have found a new trick that I’m really excited about and loving.  I put all of my empty lavender essential oil bottles in a glass container with a top and throw in my wool dryer balls when I’m not using them!  My absolute favorite essential oil for laundry has to be Lavender!  This not only gently scents our clothing, but also is another opportunity for my family to receive the therapeutic benefits of Young Living Essential Oils!!  You can read more about Lavender Essential oil here and here!
