with essential oils! I’m pretty open about how much I LOVE Young Living essential oils. A little over a year ago, I joined the team and I have been using them on a daily basis ever since. I start each day by diffusing “JOY” into my room! It’s delightful!! It really sets the tone for the day! I have multiple diffusers around the house. I use them all......constantly.
Then I go downstairs and make coffee! I’ve been drinking Bulletproof coffee...I put the hot coffee, the brain octane fuel, the collagen peptides and a tablespoon of butter into the blender and mix it up. I aslo add in some peppermint.....or oregano oil for flavor. I have found when I load up on fat in the mornings, I don’t crave sugar throughout the day and I have a lot of energy.
After the coffee, I brush my teeth with Young Living toothpaste and mouthwash. I have been adding a drop or two of orange onto my toothbrush because I read it whitens your teeth so I figured WTH.
I drink a lot of water throughout the day and add a drop or two of lemon to each glasss. It gives the water some flavor and makes it seem more like a treat. Plus just having a taste of something good lives up the tastebuds and cuts the desire for snacking......at least it has that effect on me.
Today I cleaned the bathroom. I added a capful of the thieves cleaner to a bucket of water plus some drops of citrus fresh and purification. I love cleaning with citrus fresh because it just makes the whole house smell so delightfully amazing!
I have to tell you that sometimes I use NORWEX products too. I love the fact that you only need water and a couple of cloths to get something clean. Today, I cleaned the windows with my envirocloth and wIndow cloth....or whatever it’s called. I also clean the kitchen cabinets and stainless steel with this combo. It just leaves everything so sparkling shiney. I also use the enviro cloth on my leaher couches and in my car amd really any time I just need a quick clean up.
I have been doing the laundry today. I love having a free day to get all the laundry done. I washed my sheets and the curtains in the kitchen and even the shower curtain....I added lavender to the wash cycle and a few drops to th dryer balls. Honestly, if I were going to make only one move in reducing the use of chemicals in my house, I’d switch to using the wool dryer balls. I love them! I haven’t bought bounce in years!
So today....I took a shower late. My bathroom was clean and I hopped in and used my homemade body wash then slathered myself with this homemade body butter. I love it! My skin has never felt better!
Body butter is super easy to make. You just use equal amounts of Shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil and almond oil.....melt it....let it harden then whip it with a hand mixer and man! You have an amazing treat! This year for Christmas I gave this out as gifts and I think everyone just loved it!! I know I loved giving it....A gift of love!
I have also started taking a couple supplements that Young Living has to offer.....B vitamins and a probiotic.....
Throughout the day, I apply various oils to my body. A couple drops of “ Valor” for courage, maybe some “gently baby” to relax, some “abundance” to give me hope for an abundant life. I love smelling deliciously good! When I lay down to go to sleep, I diffuse something relaxing by my bed and relax and fall asleep happy.
So you can see when I say I use essential oils....I honestly do! I can’t imagine a day without them. I keep them in my car, in my purse, literally every room in the house has a bottle of some goodness in it. I give oils as gifts and try to show my friends how big of a difference these scrumptious products can make in their life as they have mine! My house is basically chemical free! I gave all my commercial cleaning supplies to a friend who cleans houses. I can’t breath when I walk through the cleaning aisle at the store...the smells are too strong and too toxic for my nose. I feel good about erasing that poison from my life.
One of my biggest oils fans, Samuel asked me the other day....., he said, “Mom! I want to grow my hair out in time for baseball season. Do you have any oils for that?” I said, “ actually I do” I had just heard of this stuff called mermaid hair...an oil blend that you can apply to your head to make your hair grow faster and longer. So I googled the recipe and made Sam his own little bottle. He uses it faithfully every day. Here’s his before picture....
im gonna take an after picture when baseball season starts and see if he has mermaid hair. We shall see. Samuel is always asking me if I have an oil that would work for something he needs and I can usually come up with some way to help him out. It’s kimd of fun!! I like that he believes in me....and the oils most of all. I gave him his own diffuser for his bedroom for Christmas because he kept taking mine.
Not only do I use these products ona daily basis but I’ve also taken advantage of the business side of the company and lately have been making a little side money just sharing what I love with other people. I’d love to have you join my team.....either as retail costumer, a wholesale buyer or even a business partner. Here’s a link to my website....

What do you think?? Do you use essential oils? Are you inspired to do so? Would you like to learn more about them? Does seeing how essential oils can so easily be added into your daily life make you want to try some.....or all of them? Do you need to start your day with a dose of JOY??? It’s honestly been life changing for me!!!
peace and love to you, my friends!
