Teenager Attitudes Reversed!

Yup, you saw that right…attitudes reversed, mom of teenagers experiences relief…. film at 11:00 pm.  A Young Living Distributor with 3 teenage boys, all with special challenges, Sylvia was wayyyy past due for some respite from her daily circus of teenage attitude along with the other all-too-familiar traits of Planet Teenage Boy (PTB) citizens. The air was tense, the parents were tense, the teenagers were busy eye-rolling, nit picking at each other, not listening (“Huh?!”),…

Valor Essential Oil Blend

I noticed another Young Living enthusiast/ninja like myself gushing that they wanted to “smear Valor all over myself.” This is not particular to Valor Blend at all, I find that often the concept of smearing [insert YL oil here] comes bursting out of someone who has experienced the amazing-ness of these oils. It is our deep desire for more of that which is good, excellent, exquisite and extraordinary. I could write books on the technical…

Snap Out Of It Recipe

swirly color

You may have noticed my Oil A Week isn’t quite posted this week.  Bummer week, still wishing I could put Abundance Blend on my fig tree out back and create a money tree, cuz we got a dead car, fried electrical wiring in the kitchen, and RIP to my digital camera as well.  So I’ve been strictly following this Snap Out Of It protocol which I invented: 1.  Smear Clarity oil all over my face…

Peace & Calming

I’m willing to take a stand when it comes to the notion of Peace & Calming® as a major part of my ninja mom arsenal to create an environment of harmony, agreement, calm, serenity, composure, cessation, order, pacification, reconciliation, truce, unity, congeniality, contentment, hush, lull, quiet, relaxation, repose, rest, stillness, and tranquility (I do so love thesaurus.com.) Is there anyone out there who would be opposed to these qualities in their life? Kids, teenagers, dogs,…

PanAway Essential Oil Blend

Moms with teenagers are surely aware of the extreme need to make the overabundance of pans go away. Some might say that Young Living came through once again for desperate housewives suffering from too much cookware, but they would be wrong. Apparently, anything that supports our bodies in response to the word “ouch” is considered medicinal and regulated by the FDA. I must be under that jurisdiction, as when any “body” in my family cries…

Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon Vitality* is one of those can’t go wrong essential oils, put a drop in a pitcher of water and drink it right up. It supports normal, healthy memory, if I could only remember that part. The fragrance of lemon essential oil promotes clarity of thought & purpose, as well as being invigorating and enhancing to my mood, and that’s a good thing.  Make lemonade with it using Blue Agave (Item No. 3221) natural sweetener….

Helichrysum Essential Oil

Even when other oils are indicated topically, I make sure I have at least one layer of helichrysum on it. Some European scientist guys studied it for supporting normal circulation and skin. I love it on my skin.  Helichrysum supports normal healthy liver function, which makes sense as it is a detoxifier. The liver does a lot of important stuff, so a happy healthy liver makes a happy healthy me. By supporting my liver and…

Purification Essential Oil Blend

This is my favorite oil to carry with me when going to any hotel, along with an empty small spray bottle. I put water in the spray bottle, put in about 10 drops of Purification, shake it up, and spray away that eau de hotel. I’ve watched enough news programs to know that I don’t want to risk what may be lurking on the bedspread, walls, closet, etc. around my family. I spray them with…

Peppermint essential oil

One of the oldest and well known oil for soothing digestion, peppermint may also support normal digestive efficiency (the whole ability to poop normal thing.). Jean Valnet MD studied peppermint’s supportive effect on the healthy liver and respiratory systems. Awesome for the Morning After The Night Before. I personally can attest that ants do not like it!  I put it on the metal threshold of my sliding glass door and the ants stopped their marching…

Basil Essential Oil

Absorbing all the information about essential oils can seem overwhelming. So I am starting a weekly series on a different essential oil each week.  Even at a weekly pace, this series will take more than 2 years to complete!  That is my point of this whole website. Nobody learns about everything overnight. One step at a time, experimenting with different oils which seem to fit you and your family’s needs, and you will soon find…
