🌱 GRATEFUL HEART 🌱⠀
I start each day with a grateful heart, I wake up to smiles on my family’s faces. Ok most day, Bentley isn’t a morning person but I know he is happy and loved.⠀
I’m also super grateful for my oily team and oily community. I have not experienced so much love from some complete strangers.⠀
So pleased to have so many newbie and friends join me on this journey.⠀

Who loves coffee?
Well if you do, you should try this hack! I absolutely love cinnamon so adding this to my coffee makes my early Saturday’s a little better.
I will likely do this again tomorrow because it makes sleep in Sunday’s just as good!

Thanks to @essentiallykatiescarlet for the hack. DIY hand sanitizer DONE! Got these spring cheery sanitizer bottles @dollartree . Emptied out the alcohol fragrance gunk and removed the label with citrus oil. And thennnnn, .
Refilled the same 3 oz bottle with 2 parts aloe Vera gel to 1 part witch hazel. Added 4 drops vitamin E oil. 10 drops Thieves and 5 citrus fresh. Be sure to leave enough empty space to shake it up well to mix. Give it a real good shake and wahla! .
Bigger size for classroom, office, diaper bag, or on a family outing for long days. You could even add a little glycerin to smooth it.
Need this in your life? But don't have the oils. Message me to order.
If you need a healthy, energy boosting snack, high in protein, this is AMAZING!!! Your kids will even like them!!!!! BONUS POINTS!!!! 💃🏼
I’m making these for a make and take I’m doing tomorrow night with some ladies that want to know more about oils and what Young Living is all about!!!
I was going to do a video of me making them but all my kids were having after school meltdowns and fighting 🤪 note to self “do videos when they are at school” 🤣 ...
Who loves lime essential oil??? Have you added it into any food or drinks??
Coconut Lime Energy Balls
2/3 cup shredded coconut divided
1/2 cup almonds
1/4 cup cashews
1 cup pitted dates
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
3 drops of Lime vitality EO
Divide coconut in half. Add 1/3 c, and the rest of the nuts in a blender or food processor. Chop up coarsely. Add other ingredients until cookie dough consistency. Roll into 1” balls and roll into remaining coconut. Store in airtight container for 1 week in fridge.
•PanAway essential oil•
Reduces pain and inflammation, increases circulation, accelerates healing. Relieves swelling and discomfort from sprained muscle,spasm,cramps, bumps, bruises,and arthritis.
This blend is made with wintergreen, Helichrysum, clove, peppermint essential oils.
not recommended for children under the age of 6 without advice of a health care professional.
I love to give my son a nice relaxing massage once in a while. He goes training 4 - 5 nights out of the week and sometimes when they are doing drills, even though they are very warmed up, he can pull a muscle or get slightly hurt. And this oil works wonders for him. .
What I do is spread the carrier oil first on his back and then add a few drops of Panaway oil and rub it in, and that’s it! .

Did you know that by year 2050 there will be more plastics in the ocean than our fishes. It takes 200 years (or more) for a plastic to break down! 😨 End plastic pollution and reduce single-use plastics!

How is this little booger 11 months old today? 😭
Citrus Fresh + Joy
This was not planned to be the day I tackled some of those nagging house projects, but that is how it unfolded. •
With these two diffusing though... I’m at peace with the chaos that is currently my kitchen, while I finish tackling my pantry/kitchen purge. 🤪
Anyone else find purging totally therapeutic!?! 🧘🏻♀️
I’m missing my gym time! What are some skills I can work on at home?

I absolutely LOVE posting about Young Living on this page, but what I love even more, is sharing about it in person to individuals looking for change, looking for a better way of life and those who have health and wellness goals. Eating right and exercising are important to improve, but so is your home and the products you are using on a regular basis.
I spent tonight prepping for tomorrow’s make and take that I’m having at my place. If you have never been to one of my make and takes, I would encourage u to reach out to me cause I would gladly host one for you and your friends.
At my regular Make & Take I share about the essential oils and thieves premium starter kit, and give everyone a chance to smell, apply and ask any questions u may have. Plus, you get to experience a few oily treats, snacks, mermaid juice and EO tea. Before you go home, everyone gets a chance to mix up their own roller bottle to take home and use.
If you would like to come to my next one in February which will have a valentines twist, let me know and I’ll add you to my invite list ❤️❤️❤️
I changed out Maeve’s infant car seat for her convertible car seat. This was about the same age Falyn transitioned to it as well. But this transition was HARD. Sounds stupid, but I brought both babies home after birth in this car seat. They’ve both traveled many a miles in this seat, tucked in safely and strapped in securely. All the walks, all the shopping trips and all the car rides to get them to sleep in THIS car seat... and now, neither will get to ride in it again. I’m not sure if more babies are in our future or not. I’m not sure if this car seat will get more use, either from me or another sweet Mama. But I do know this, that time passes by all too quickly. So many times I find myself saying, “I can’t wait until Maeve can...” or “it’ll be so much fun when Falyn will.....” If there’s anything I’ve learned as a young Mama, it’s gratitude. Gratitude for every moment. The beautiful moments when my little love was snoozing away in this car seat, and the moments when 💩 ended up from shoulder blades to knees in this car seat. I’m grateful. And I don’t want to miss any more mundane moments without a grateful heart.❤️
During January in our ditch the toxic and switch to natural #ditchandswitch an easy switch is the bath bars that you use. .
What I choose is the Citrus Bliss Invigorating Bath Bar that creates an uplifting cleansing experience by delivering an energizing boost to your daily routine. This unique proprietary essential oil blend of dōTERRA Citrus Bliss harmoniously creates an elevated aroma. The natural exfoliating properties of sunflower wax beads and orange peel powder work together to gently soften, smooth, and stimulate skin rejuvenation. And it smells amazing 💛✨ .
Do you use a natural soap bar in your home?
“What’s in this Queen’s teenie weenie little capsule?...”⠀
Why thanks for asking!!...inside this teenie weenie little capsule is... ⠀
• 2 drops ᴏʀᴇɢᴀɴᴏ ⠀
• 4-5 drops FCO ⠀
*the carrier oil helps dilute the super strong ᴏʀᴇɢᴀɴᴏ*⠀
...and also, don’t be surprised if you burp up some “spaghetti”🍝 you didn’t eat 😂😅 ⠀
6 science based health benefits of ᴏʀᴇɢᴀɴᴏ:⠀
• rich in antioxidants ⠀
• helps fight bacteria⠀⠀
• has some anti-cancer properties⠀
• helps reduce viral infection⠀
• helps decrease inflammation⠀
So like.... what aren’t the benefits of ᴏʀᴇɢᴀɴᴏ? ⠀

These are great little things - I bought 2 for myself a few months ago and have now got another one as a gift for a friend.
Such a good way of cutting down on plastics. It's working well in my household and every little bit helps!”
Encouraging people to cut down on single use plastics is the essence of why I invented the Block Dock. I want to remove the barrier for making the switch which for me personally was the icky experience of mushy bars and scummy dishes. It shouldn’t be a compromise to do the right thing, and with the Block Dock you get rewarded for life with solid bars that last longer and give you better value for money.
Another important switch is to ditch your antiperspirants for a better option. I loved doTERRA's natural Balance deodorant, but unfortunately the baking soda irritated my skin. I use the sensitive blend with Douglas Fir and Orange and am having great success with it! My husband uses the sensitive formula as well.
When switching to a natural deodorant, it's important to remember that there will be an adjustment period. Your body has been blocking your natural perspiration, which is how it rids itself of the parabens and other ingredients from the antiperspirant. Since they couldn't escape the normal way, they end up getting stored inside of fatty tissue, usually in the breasts, so switching can cause the armpits to have a reaction or smell. Detoxing your armpits is crucial. I like to use the detoxifying mud mask to help with this process. You can add a drop of Cilantro and Rosemary as well. Simply apply for 10 minutes, then rinse. There are many natural deodorants on the market, and I have tried several. Just remember to check your ingredients, and check out the Environmental Working Group or Think Dirty for better options!

I never really thought of myself as a pre-made roller kind of girl but I absolutely LOVE my Thieves and Deep Relief rollers. 🌱 Which one should I try next?? 🧐
We are spending all weekend at the curling rink watching dad, uncle and grandma and grandpa curl! Brought them over a nice little kit of oily rollers. One for headaches, one for sleep and one for muscles.
After a weekend of curling and dancing they will need all the support they can get. Avoiding the chemicals and nasties in grocery store creams and medications is a must. Natural plant based solutions for the win!!! #yleo #youngliving #ditchandswitch #essentialoilssforthewin #essentialoils
Let’s talk about this little bar of soap right here 🧼 Game changer! In my adult years I still struggle with breakouts and have a hard time controlling them. BUT with the charcoal bar soap from Young Living I feel like a different person. I use it 3-4 times a week and it is 🙌🏻
It leaves my face feeling clean and refreshed but I don’t feel dry and stripped of all the natural oils on my face. If you’re like me and still struggle with adult skin issues, this is your product! 🌿

Non-toxic and chemical free are hot buzz words right now. It’s something I hear people talk about all the time but they don’t know what it even means or where to start. Basically the premise of the whole thing is to reduce the stress that we put on our bodies by not using harsh products or things our body has a difficult time processing. Simply put it’s only using things found in nature, not man made in a lab and has a good health benefit for us.
So where do you even start? One of the easiest, yet most beneficial, things I started with was my laundry. If you think about it you wear your cloths all day, sleep in sheets you wash, use towels for the bathroom/kitchen or curl up on the couch with your favorite blanket you just pulled out of the dryer. The problem with conventional laundry detergent like Tide or Downy is that they have known ingredients that cause respiratory issues, skin irritation and are known endocrine disruptors-just to name a few. Do you really want that stuff up against your skin all day or breathing in the off gases all night while you’re sleeping in your gain unstoppable scented sheets? Not. Worth. The. “Good.” Smell.
So an easy way to begin limiting your load of toxic exposure is to switch your laundry detergent. I use YL detergent and add oils to give it that fresh/clean smell. It’s plant based, cleans out some of the worst stains I’ve ever had and honestly lasts me forever. Seriously guys I do a lot of laundry because stinky dog and this container lasts me months. There’s lots of options out there for non-toxic laundry detergent but this is just something I prefer.
What is something you’ve ditched and switched to a better alternative?
Tropic pamper set up! 💚 Have had the most lovely evening launching the super gorgeous @lottiebethswindellsx @tropic_lottie Tropic business! It was perfect 🙌

Being able to share how Young Living and essential oils have impacted us is a true blessing. .
My two year oily anniversary is approaching (in a couple months) and I can’t help but reflect on all the ways we have been impacted by each precious drop. .
We have tackled things like headaches, digestive issues, skin problems, sore muscles, sleep, stress, and so much more! 🙌🏻

#22 weeks and baby is growing by the day 🖤 I was feeling tired and my back has been bothering me, so I did a low impact workout to get the blood flowing and I feel so much better....except now I’m starving and don’t want to wait for dinner to cook 😂
Realizing how important it is at this point to take care of myself (hydration, fresh foods, exercise, fresh air, sleep) but to also enjoy a flexible diet (pasta and chips) 🙈 baby gets what baby wants....BUT in moderation 🤷🏻♀️
I am thoroughly enjoying being pregnant, feeling his kicks getting stronger everyday, empowering myself by educating and asking questions, and watching my body grow each week.
I feel like I am working out my 🍑 mostly during workouts yet it’s sagging more than growing haha 😂 gotta love that relaxin kicking in!
But these days, I am starting to feel some of that tiredness creeping back in towards the evening and I tell myself it’s ok to rest because that’s what my body is needing. One day at a time 🖤

This sweet sis had to say goodbye to her pet parakeet yesterday... #RIPstarfire
...and I was quickly reminded that there is no worse feeling than knowing that your baby is hurting when there is nothing that you can do to stop it. So, I held her, hugged her, told her that I was there for her; that it was okay to cry and to hurt, & then I rubbed her down with Frankincense, Marjoram, and Lavender oils & here is why...
𝘍𝘙𝘈𝘕𝘒𝘐𝘕𝘊𝘌𝘕𝘚𝘌: reduces incessant mental activity, offers spiritual strength to endure and relinquish.
𝘔𝘈𝘙𝘑𝘖𝘙𝘈𝘔: soothes a heavy spirit and eases the feelings of sorrow and loneliness.
𝘓𝘈𝘝𝘌𝘕𝘋𝘌𝘙: promotes overall tranquility and relaxation. eases the mind.
I’m so thankful to have these tools in my mama tool box for my sweet babies. Literally #oilsforeverything
True life: I need better habits 🥴
I’m the worst when I comes to remembering to take the time to clean my makeup brushes. When I saw @wildflora.wellness do this on her IGTV, I just HAD to give it a try! Trust me, your skin and brushes will thank you later and it’s so easy 😉
𝕄𝕒𝕜𝕖𝕦𝕡 𝔹𝕣𝕦𝕤𝕙 ℂ𝕝𝕖𝕒𝕟𝕖𝕣 𝔻𝕀𝕐:
⋒ squirt a small amount of Dr Bronners UNSCENTED Castile soap in a jar (about an inch or two)
⋒ use 3 drops of EACH EO in jar: Citrus Fresh, Lemon, Lavender
⋒ spray makeup brushes with a little thieves cleaner and rub into brushes
⋒ place brushes into jar with soap and EO’s and circle around a bit
⋒ fill jar with water
⋒ let sit for about 5 min
⋒ rinse under running water until water is clear
⋒ brush on paper towel or regular towel
⋒ reshape, and lay flat to dry on another towel
This was SO EASY!!! In addition, I didn’t have to use any harmful or toxic makeup cleaners that are currently in my medicine cabinet 🤪
Why do I feel comfortable using these products and EOs on my brushes? Well with @youngliving’s seed to seal promise, and how gentle that Castile soap is, I know I’m using a safe product that won’t tear apart my brushes. 💜😌
Such an amazing day filled with inspiring speakers, learning, and some henna🙃

Turn one bottle into three in less than 30 seconds 👏🏻👏🏻 Remember, the scent of your bath and body ish either comes from chemicals or plants... make sure you know what’s absorbing into yo blood stream, fam. 🙏🏻
There are a lot of reasons to avoid commercial air fresheners. Many contain phthalates, which is a group of chemicals that affect human reproduction and development according the U.S. National Library of Medicine.* In an independent test, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) found phthalates in many commercial air fresheners, including some that did not list phthalates on the ingredients, as well as some that were labeled as "all natural" or "unscented."** Yikes! 😱
So let’s ditch the mystery musk and create some DIY air fresheners using the real thing—essential oils, distilled straight from nature. Here are 3 amazing DIY Air freshener recipes. Let me know if you’d like to know how to get started with essential oils . 😊
Sunny morning ☀️
3 drops Citrus Fresh essential oil
2 drops Bergamot essential oil
2 drops Grapefruit essential oil
Busy bee 🐝
2 drops R.C. essential oil blend
2 drops Valor essential oil blend
2 drops Orange essential oil
Tropical escape 🏖
4 drops Ylang Ylang essential oil
2 drops Copaiba essential oil
2 drops Jade Lemon essential oil
Thieves those leaves! 👊🏼 •
This is mama and her baby. My first propagation in July, was a success. 🌿✨🙏🏼 I’ve had mama just over a year, she has been so good to me. 😁
I just grab my Thieves, and spray on to microfiber cloth. I then use one hand to gently hold under leaf, while gently wiping down leaves! •
Seriously, my plants LOVE it! So shiny, and check how my Monstera is rewarding me with tons of new growth! 🤩
Houseplant people, I want to hear all you tips! I’m still so new to all this, and loving learning more about how to naturally care for my babies. 🌿
I loved teaching this Ditch & Switch class today focused on ditching harsh chemicals on a budget.
We had so much fun learning, answering questions, and brainstorming!
I have an online version if this class coming Monday night and there's still time to get involved!
DM me and I'll get you the details.

My Savvy Minerals collection is gradually growing. It does take some getting used to and practice. But I’m really starting to love it! Most of what I have on is SM except for my eyebrows and my eyeshadow. ⠀
Changing from a greasy liquid foundation to a mineral foundation was rough to start, I won’t even lie. But I’ve noticed that the more I use it the more the greasy liquid feels pretty gross. I’ve been wearing the SM to work and was very surprised to see that it last all day. I also love how easily and completely it washes off and doesn’t ever feel heavy or thick. ⠀
Most of my SM products were bought with my ER reward points so it was mostly free. ⠀
I really do love free 🥰⠀

Everyone #wahm has a favourite day, and that day is when your delivery man arrives!
We were stoked to see the postie pull into our driveway after we got home from taking all the wet bags to the post office on Friday.
Tommy loves all kinds of bikes so he was happy, but still a bit scared of the fluro guy riding it. And I was pumped for the #fluffmail.
All I wanted to do was rip it open and enjoy but I wanted to wait till both kids were napping so I could REALLY soak up the moment... well Tom didn’t sleep 😱😱 Don’t panic though the fabric was enjoyed later that night!
Thanks to @noosafabricco for the express postage, wonderful range of prints and piece of scrap I’ll be making my own personal wet bag from!
Time to get cutting! In the mean time check out our highlights for our current drop stock.

•Make a roller with Thieves & Lemon and roll on neck everyday for immune support❗️
•Make a roller with Valor and roll on wrists every day for courage! 👊🏼

Fun fact. I’m a professional makeup artist who is now retired from that gig. This photo was taken just a handful of years ago, still in my 30’s, w a camera that printed real photos! No filter existed in my life back then and that is why I’m still careful about what I filter bc I don’t want to fake people into thinking I’m something I’m not. Minus the mass amounts of makeup on in this photo!🤣
I was a makeup artist for companies like Urban Decay and Smashbox, and one of the most exciting ones was as a senior makeup artist for Maybelline New York in downtown Chicago.
But then I became enlightened. Ethics and ingredients became more important to me than money [one Maybelline gig could pay one month’s rent in the city for me] and working w celebrities.
Why was testing on animals still allowed w so many companies? How could a company claim to be vegan and still use 💩ingredients but people thought vegan makeup = healthy makeup?! Why were women giving up their health for cheap makeup and skincare...or spending a lot on cruelty-free makeup/skincare that still wasn’t safe for their skin?
The more I researched, the more I learned. And walked away from it all. I was burnt out from standing on my feet for hours on end anyhow but wow...the cosmetics and skincare industries are a JOKE.
I always wondered why women couldn’t get great quality skincare and makeup that lasted a while for a good price and not compromise their health? I thankfully found some semi-decent skincare and makeup but then... I found young living and they had amazing pure + 💯 natural oils and skincare I could use on my face and then came out w an incredible makeup line too! It was a dream come true for this natural-loving girl. What I can’t find w young living...I have found substitutes w beauty counter and w3ll. Get enlightened, people! Let’s chat.

Listen up. Get yourself a glass milk bottle or whatever container you’d like and dump an entire carton of organic half and half, almond milk, whatever you prefer in it.
Then add 2 drops (or whatever your taste is) of:
Orange, cinnamon bark, clove, nutmeg vitality each!
Then add vanilla extract!
You got yourself the most delicious sugar free coffee creamer. Pumpkin spice vibes. So good.
So. What the crap am I doing with a bent q-tip in my nose?⠀
I’m busting up a sinus headache that had been killing me for HOURS. I had tried my headache roller, and it failed. I tried my allergy roller, and it failed.⠀
And THEN I remembered the trick @oilyapp had revealed on his stories the day before: drop some R.C. in your palm and roll the ends of a q-tip in it. Bend that q-tip and make yourself look like a bull. ⠀
I kid you not, my headache was completely gone in 2 minutes. 😱 As Mr. Rogers wouldn’t say, “it’s all good in the hood.”
R.C. stands for respiratory congestion, and is a powerhouse blend of all three eucalyptuses, myrtle, marjoram, lavender, cypress, black spruce, and peppermint. ⠀
🌱 Peppermint contains menthol which affects the mucus receptors in the nose, sparking open airways and clearing mucus. It also helps reduce inflammation. ⠀
🌿 Black spruce and cypress are high in monoterpenes which help act as decongestants. ⠀
🌱 Lavender is rich in terpenes which makes it a powerful decongestant. In particular, the terpene alpha-pinene acts as a natural expectorant and bronchodilator. Just another reason Bae lavender is my fav. ⠀
🌿 Marjoram is also loaded down with terpenes. *ya getting the hint on how amazing terpenes are and why this blend works so well?*⠀
🌱 Myrtle contains 1,8 cineole which stimulates cilia (think tiny respiratory propellers) to move mucus along to clear up those sinus quicker. ⠀
🌿 Eucalyptus. The powerhouse respiratory oil EVERYONE knows about. It’s chemical components are in that old chest rub you used to lather on, and trust me, the natural version is even better. It too contains 1,8 cineole, as well as alpha-pinene (check out those terpenes again), and limonene, all strong anti-inflammatory agents. ⠀
Moral of the story, R.C. is my new go-to for all respiratory and sinus problems. ⠀
Side note: is it not amazing that Young Living offers pre-made blends that are just right? I don’t own myrtle, and I hoard my marjoram and black spruce. No problem with Young Living! So awesome, and I’m so thankful.
Absolutely love this. And the food wastage stats are crazy - can’t go blaming big businesses for this one 😩 It just shows - by making small changes, we CAN make a big difference!

Y’all know holistic wellness is my JAM. During this season when the germs seem to be at an all time high, it matters to me that I am supporting my girls’ (and my own) immune system in the best way possible, so that our bodies can do what they were made to do. #ad That is why I LOVE @matys. Products made with natural, nourishing, organic, whole food, recognizable ingredients that, yes, help soothe symptoms, but also support the immune system, aiding body in effectively fighting off illness. Maty’s has been a brand we’ve trusted for years. Hop over into my stories to see our most used products and how we use them!
After school snack, vegan hot chocolate and coconut whipped cream, in my favourite mug! This is a wide mug with curved edges, it’s so cozy to drink from! I can’t wait to see what they add to the new holiday catalog this year!
I have four of these mugs! I bought one for myself, got one from my mom and two aunts... I guess I made it quite clear last year this was a MUST on my Christmas list.
These mugs sell out so fast in Canada, so once they are launched make sure you grab them! I personally love collecting mugs. I will need a cabinet just for all the ones I’ve accumulated over the years.
What’s your favourite hot drink?
Diffusing is one of the best things you can do for your health. Not only does it smell nice, but the essential oils dispersed through a cold air diffusion clean your air... and this time of year when less and less people are keeping their windows open and using harsh chemicals to make their house smell like Christmas, indoor air pollution is becoming as dangerous as smoking indoors.
I love that I can customize the aroma I want and tailor it to my health. Plus there’s something so relaxing about a gentle mist floating in your space, it feels spa-like.
A LOT of people ask me if they can buy diffusers elsewhere, we’ll of course you CAN, but should you?
So when I started with YL I was stubborn, I went out and bought a couple extra $20-30 diffusers that said ‘ultrasonic’... so I figured it was fine. They all broke within six months. Even with proper cleanings and maintenance.
I haven’t had that experience with Yl diffusers, and the one time one of my diffusers after six months started making a bit of a weird bubbling sound they sent me a new motor in 2-3 days. So I just avoid the hassle and buy from a company I trust.
Other diffuser brands can run you the risk of making false claims about ultrasonic when it’s actually cheap plastic. You have no idea where it’s sourced from, if it’s an ethical factory or a sweatshop. If it’s designed for therapeutic grade or synthetic grade oils. So you’re always running that risk. Plus who wants to waste money guessing? Not me.
