  • in my diy face wash, hand soap, hair serum, face masks
  • great when applied after being in the sun too long
  • takes the itch out of mosquito bites

Thieves Spray

As a Mom and a germaphobe, thieves spray is a must have. After becoming a Mom I made a conscious decision to limit the amount of toxins my daughter was exposed to. The germaphobe side of me rejoices because I can use this stuff on just about everything and don’t have to worry about it discoloring fabrics like bleach and its completely non toxic! Win – Win!!!

Wintergreen Essential Oil

Wintergreen essential oil is especially helpful for sore aching muscles and head tension. Its scent is just like wintergreen gum, which I find yummy! This is also an excellent diffuser choice.

The natural and effective way to clean your makeup brushes

Hey ladies, do you put off cleaning your makeup brushes? Me too!!! Well not anymore. I’ve got a beauty hack that is just too good, not to share!

The non toxic way to quickly clean makeup brushes using melaleuca alternifolia essential oil.

Click image to save to Pinterest!

One of the reasons I procrastinate this chore is because it usually requires me standing over the sink washing and rinsing, washing and rinsing for what feels like forever. There has to be a faster and more effective way right? I have bought products specifically made for cleaning makeup brushes and have not found them to expedite the process. Plus, they’re usually comprised of some not so great for you ingredients. So the other day, I had an idea! What if I add a drop of Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) oil? My thinking was, it’s so great at zapping my zits, maybe it would help to really clean my brushes and prevent future breakouts. So I added a drop to the cleanser I was using, (I make my own) you can get my easy and non-toxic recipe here. To my surprise the makeup was melting away. To say Melaleuca Alternifolia sped up the process is an understatement! I have never experienced anything like this, even with products specifically made for this purpose. This beauty hack is just too good not to share!

Here’s what I do.

For my brushes and powder pads, I add a pump or two of cleanser to my palm, then a drop of Melaleuca Alternifolia. Then I swirl and press the brush/pad into my palm to release the makeup, rinse with water and repeat until completely clean. It used to take me at least 10 minutes to clean one brush! Now I can do one brush within 1-2 minutes!

Here’s why I love this so much!

Not only am I saving time, (maybe not a lot, but hey when you’re a Mom every minute matters. 😉 But, I also have peace of mind knowing my brushes are squeaky clean and free from the zit causing nasties. Most of all, I love that I don’t need to use toxic products to get the job done!

It’s so cool, you just have to try it!

I’m so happy Melaleuca Alternifolia is now included in the Premium Starter Kit. I keep finding fabulous new ways to use this oil and it has quickly become one of my favorites!

Happy Oiling,

The NON-TOXIC way to Banish the Dirty Diaper Smell from your nursery

Is your baby’s diaper pail stinking up the whole room? Ours was and after much trial and error I’ve finally found a solution! A Non-Toxic solution using two simple ingredients!

A non toxic way to eliminate dirty diaper odors

Click image to save to Pinterest!

I may be naive, but I thought the whole point of using a diaper pail was to contain those poopy diaper smells!? Maybe we just have the wrong one, because our diaper pail does not! It’s cute, but not an effective option for keeping our daughter’s nursery from stinking like a dirty diaper from the moment you enter the room. So after many attempts to find a natural and non-toxic remedy I’ve finally found something that works! And it’s so easy, I just have to share!

All you need is Baking Soda and Melaleuca Alternifolia (tea tree oil), this is one of the new oils now included in the Premium Starter Kit from Young Living. When I first bought my kit this oil was not included. I recently ordered a bottle to have on hand for this winter to use if needed. This is a great oil to have in your natural medicine cabinet. Since this was a new oil for me, I have been doing a lot of reading on how it can be used and decided to give it a try in my battle against the diaper pail.

If you’d like to give this a try,

All you do is add about 5 drops of Melaleuca Alternifolia to about a 1/4 cup of baking soda and pour it in your diaper pail bag. I am so pleased to have finally found something that not only works, but also keeps the chemicals out of my lil’ baby’s room!

Hopefully, this will save you from the trial error time it took me to come to a natural solution!

Happy Oiling,

Changes to the Everyday Oils Collection

November-New-Kit-WEB with info

Have you heard the latest news from Young Living yet? All orders placed on or after November 17th, 2014 in the US, that include The Everyday Oils Collection will have a new starting lineup! Peace & Calming is being replaced with Melaleuca Alternifolia, (commonly known as Tea Tree oil).  Valor is being replaced with Stress Away and the NEW bonus oil that comes in the Premium Starter kit is Citrus Fresh.

The Everyday Oils collection will still include Thieves, Frankincense, Lemon, Peppermint, Panaway, Lavender, Purification and Joy. Plus you can still purchase Peace & Calming and Valor separately.

How Exciting!!! I love that Young Living is constantly listening to their customers and keeping up with our needs. There have been supply issues with Valor due to it’s popularity and in order to keep it available for those who really need it, the decision to remove Valor from the oils included in the Premium Starter kit really is a good thing. This change will free up inventory without sacrificing quality. Another company in this situation may have avoided this by using 2nd, 3rd, or even 4th distillation batches, but not Young Living, their commitment to quality and integrity are part of what make them the world leader in essential oils!

By recognizing this demand and taking long term actions to address the valor issue, Young Living has purchased a beautiful farm up in Canada for growing and distilling black spruce, a crucial ingredient to Valor. They will also be growing and distilling ledum and yarrow at the Northern Lights Aromatic Farm. So if you love Valor, go ahead and do your happy dance now!

Since Stress Away already came in the Premium Starter Kit as a bonus oil, it’s not really an addition. For those who have yet to receive the PSK,  I am so excited for you to be able to experience this calming blend, especially since the hectic holidays are right around the corner and who couldn’t benefit from a little help from Stress Away? This oil is simple to use, you can either inhale a few deep breathes directly from the bottle, diffuse, wear as a perfume, or add 5-10 drops to some Epsom salts for a relaxing bath.

So lets talk about the newbie to the Everyday Oils Collection.

Melaleuca Alternifolia aka Tea Tree Oil. When I think about it, it makes perfect sense to include this oil to the lineup for so many first time oil users, since Melaleuca Alternifolia has so many practical uses, from skin issues to cleaning. Due to FDA guidelines, I can’t tell you just how powerful this little oil is (if you haven’t heard yet the FDA has recently come down hard on natural wellness companies. For example, because I sell essential oils as an independent distributor for Young Living I cannot discuss all the benefits of these oils, but a third party source like a reference book can. A little wacky I know, but better to stay compliant than get shut down and not have my oils!!! So to get around this and give you the information you need, as a gift for enrolling as a wholesale member by purchasing a Premium Starter Kit I will send you a starter guide specifically made to explain how to use the Everyday Oils and a Primary Usage Guide so you can learn more about other oils, conditions and uses. There are also tons of great reference books you can purchase yourself, click here to see my favorites.

And the NEW bonus oil that comes in the Premium Starter Kit is…

Citrus Fresh, this fragrant blend of essential oils contains: Orange, Tangerine, Grapefruit, Lemon, Mandarin, and Spearmint. Citrus Fresh is stimulating and can help to amplify creativity and wellness, eases occasional anxiety and works well as an air purifier when diffused. I also enjoy adding a few drops to my water for a refreshing treat.

This change does not affect price and it only applies to orders placed in the United States. So if you REALLY want Peace & Calming and Valor to be apart of your kit, order yours TODAY. If you’re excited for the new kit, order yours on November 17th, either way you’re getting an amazing collection of oils!!! If  you love natural remedies and want to live with less chemicals in your life you can’t go wrong with either one.

I am grateful everyday for these oils and I’d love for you to experience them too! Click below to learn more or to place your order.

Happy Oiling,

All Natural Relief for your best friend’s Anxiety

Natural remedy for dog anxiety

This is our sweet Gracie. Before we adopted her she was in a Puppy Mill. It makes me so sad to think about what she may have endured in her Puppy Mill days yet so happy to know she is in a loving home now. In the last 7 years that she has been apart of our family she has gotten much less skiddish. But loud abrupt noises, like fireworks or thunderstorms cause extreme anxiety for her. So I did some oil research and during our last thunderstorm, which went on for hours…no joke; I decided to try a drop of Valor on the back of her neck (the area where you would normally apply flea/tick medicine). And then diffuse Peace & Calming.  The relief was almost instantaneous. And what a relief for me too, knowing my sweet Gracie didn’t have to be terrified anymore. These two fantastic oils are included in the Everyday Oil Collection. And if you’d like to learn more about them, check out my Premium Starter Kit page; where I go into more detail about their properties and uses.

Make your own Non-Toxic Hand Sanitizer

We all know that washing our hands with good old fashion soap and water is the best way to keep germs and sickness away. But, when I’m on the go, in and out of stores, running errands, or out and about with my little one who HAS to touch everything; and then stick her hands right in her mouth we need hand sanitizer!

diy Hand Purifier using thieves essential oil

Click image to save to Pinterest.

Hand sanitizers are everywhere these days! But, have you ever considered what’s really in your hand sanitizer? Chances are they contain alcohol, triclosan, or both! The alcohol in most traditional hand sanitizers simply dry my hands out too much. And triclosan, oh boy! No, thank you. I was shocked when I first learned about the possible side effects of triclosan. Especially, since it’s in so many personal care products. If you haven’t heard of triclosan yet, here’s an interesting read. This revelation was actually what drove me to finding an alternative to the traditional hand sanitizer I had been using.

Here’s the good news!

Making your own hand sanitizer is easy when you have Thieves essential oil and a few other common household ingredients. Thieves essential oil contains Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary. This blend is basically germs worst nightmare!

Now for the Recipe! What you’ll need.  

  • Aloe Vera Gel
  • Vitamin E Oil
  • Distilled Water
  • Thieves Essential Oil
  • Peppermint Essential Oil  *optional
  • Mini funnel *optional
  • Dispenser bottles (you can reuse ones you already have)

How to make your own hand sanitizer using essential oils.

How to make your own Non-Toxic Hand Sanitizer!

The easiest way to do this is to add your ingredients directly to the dispenser you plan on using. I have a mini bottle attached to my purse that I bought from Target. You can reuse an old bottle or make a spray if you’d like, just use more water.

Step 1. Fill your bottle a little more than halfway with Aloe Vera Gel.

Step 2. Use a pin or scissors to poke a hole in one Vitamin E gel cap and add to bottle. Or add 1/4 tsp Vitamin E oil.

Step 3. Add 10-15 drops of Thieves and a few drops of Peppermint essential oil.

Step 4. Place lid on and shake well.

Step 5. Fill the rest of your bottle with water and shake to mix everything together.

Voila… that’s it, you’re done!

See how easy it is to avoid traditional toxic products when you have essential oils! I hope you enjoy making and using this as much as I do 🙂

Happy Oiling,
