FAVE FIVE!

After ordering my Starter Kit and diffusing the heck out of all my oils, I KNEW I needed more!

HA!

I've made a list of my favorite 5 items to ALWAYS have in stock (outside of the kit oils, because really, I am ALWAYS going to need ALL the oils in the kit).

1.
CEDARWOOD
Have I mentioned this lovely oil before? DEFINITELY. Because it's magical. There are a bunch of verses in the Bible that even mention how wonderful cedar wood is! Apparently everyone who was anyone used cedar to build with ;)  This magnificent oil and whisked me off to amazing slumber more times than I can count due to its support of the pineal gland, which releases melatonin! I recently have been using it to grow mermaid hair (more on that in another post sometime I think!).



2.
ORANGE / ORANGE VITALITY
The smell of this sweet citrus oil is heaven in a bottle. When I inhale this I immediately relax and know everything will be ok! It is rich in limonene (google it) and is studied on its abilities to combat tumor growth. It REALLY supports relaxation and can also support your immune system. I enjoy it in my water, and they say you can add it to capsules and take daily as well!


3.
PEACE AND CALMING
This blend can have an off-putting smell at first, but it's effects are amazing and the smell will soon grow on you - I promise! It contains Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli and Blut Tansy. This oil can help calm and uplift spirits! People often rub this on their feet at night to promote easy peaceful sleep. We have been using it at night to combat coughing spells and keep a certain child in bed longer (EYE ROLL).



4.
ENDOFLEX
Dear sweet Endoflex. I have never held anything more fantastic in my hot little hands EVER. I JUST HAVEN'T. It is a blend of Spearmint, Sesame Seed Oil, Sage, Geranium, Myrtle, Matricaria (German Chamomile) and Nutmeg. It supports HORMONAL BALANCE. I try to use it during that special week but I honestly can't help myself and wear it on my diffuser bracelets or necklaces most days :) Bonus - it also supports a healthy metabolism!

5.
DEEP RELIEF ROLL-ON
And all the people who workout and get sore muscles rejoiced! This little roller bottle is SO GREAT for sore muscles and neck tension. Just roll it on and breath deeply! We also put it on our temples at the end of a long day ;)  It is a blend of 9 oils that are known for inflammation and pain relief.



There you have it friends. My favorite / will never run out of / can't believe I haven't been using my entire life oils.

Supplements for a Healthy Bod ;)




Supplements for me have always been tough. I hear stories about plumbers always finding whole vitamins in the sewers, or synthetics being added into vitamins and it scares me, so I never buy them. But getting perfectly well rounded nutrition is hard, especially if you have a slim budget. We do our best to feed our bodies well, but its a good idea to be taking some vitamins and supplements as well :) This Young Living line up is ENDLESS, so get ready!

Made with spiraling, alfalfa sprouts, barley grass, bee pollen, eleuthero, Pacific kelp and essential oils. It contains choline, which is great for fighting tiredness, and is known to help improve and maintain lung function and support a healthy brain! Goodness me, this stuff also contains amino acids, which are proteins, which are the building blocks of life. So yeah. This stuff is good.

Mineral Essence - supports a healthy immune system with a balanced ionic mineral complex enhanced with essential oils. Most people are mineral deficient and we don’t even know it.
PS. Mineral Essence tastes bad at first - but you get used to it and start to love it! I’ve noticed a big difference in how I am sleeping when I take this bad boy - LOVE it!

What I'm Reading!

My reading has been amping up lately as I have discovered AUDIOBOOKS!!!! They are the best. I drive 30-60 minutes a day, so I love that this time for me has become useful! Anyway - Here are a few books I've finished up this month so far!

                                                   

                                                         GRIT - Angela Duckworth

There was way more information in this book than I needed. I got the drift after a few chapters - but I rarely DON'T finish a book so I fought through (it took me like 4 months, oops).  I liked the tips she gave on parenting for Grit, and for enhancing your own personal Grit. BUT, it also made me feel a little guilty, like I quit too much and I'm not as gritty as I should be. It made me want to try harder and NOT give-up. Ever again.













15 Invaluable Laws of Growth - John Maxwell

John Maxwell is SO encouraging. I listened to this book via Overdrive from my library (seriously, best idea ever having audiobooks available on my iPhone) and loved it. He makes you feel like you can do IT - whatever IT is - no matter where you are in life. He encourages you to READ and absorb everything! Take notes, be organized! Most of all, to get out of your comfort zone and learn something new. Learn ANYTHING. Keep learning for your whole life! It really motivated me to keep trucking instead of giving up after a few weeks and starting another round of Netflix binging. I'm slowly kicking my Netflix habit - thanks John! If you need me, I'll be somewhere with my nose stuck in a book (or with headphones while washing dishes!).








#GIRLBOSS - Sophia Amoruso

This book was good! I listened to it on audiobook right after listening to John Maxwell's book above, and I think I was in the mood for someone to tell me a bunch of things so that I could become a "#girlboss". Instead, Sophia talks about how she became her own boss and her tips and tricks to get there. It was really great, she obviously is really smart and original! Basically, work your booty off, don't make excuses, save your money and don't spend it on crap.

Happy & Healthy Kiddos

OILS + KIDS = BIGGEST HAPPY FACE EVER.

Our kiddos benefit from many oils, supplements and NingXia too! Young Living has created items especially for our little ones!

There are products ALL OVER the shelves at stores that are filled with proven cancer-causing chemicals. KNOWN to make our kiddos sick, infertile, and wreck havoc on their delicate body systems from the inside out. They know these products are awful for us, they still sell the awful things AND they continue to make more. Gah.

Its our job to read labels and be knowledgeable about what we are giving out children. Our children health starts with us kicking those toxins OUT of our homes! I challenge you to go through your kids products (using the Think Dirty app we talked about) and throw out those ones with nasty cancer causing chemicals, then look up the ingredients in Young Living’s products and be happy!

Ok - Here’s the happy stuff

KidScents Oils Mini Set - 3 pre-diluted oil blends designed just for our littles!
5-ml KidScents Owie essential oil blend
5-ml KidScents SniffleEase essential oil blend
5-ml Kidscents TummyGize essential oil blend

KidScents Shampoo, Bath Gel and Lotion

No toxic ingredients- NOT ONE. Rubbing them down with all this goodness is the way to go! We are benefiting their little bodies!


KidScents Slique Toothpaste

No Flourides, no dyes, no microbeads, not preservatives or artificial flavors. BONUS: It tastes awesome! We used this one before our adult version came and I was actually sad to let Peanut use it, ha!

KidScents MightyVites
These kid-friendly chewable multivitamins are an effective way to provide kids with a full spectrum of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients necessary for healthy development. No dyes, sugar or other junk.
The MightyZymes are an all-natural, vegetarian chewable tablet designed to help children combat the negative effects of enzyme depletion and address each of the digestive needs of growing bodies. Health starts in the gut! This is the perfect way to help their little bodies focus on all that growing and learning.



And come on - have you seen the kids diffusers? Dino Land, Dolphin Reef and Sundance diffusers! Perfect to pair with SleepyIze essential oil :)
