Pet Marking Be Gone

Could this adorable fuzz ball completely wreck carpeting in pursuit of “claiming” territory as her own? You bet! No matter how many times we’ve tried to get her to go potty on the potty pad (what a concept!) she has this one spot in the back of the living room that she prefers. Lotsa money, scrubbing, and cleaning of the area does not seem to affect her marking habits one bit. Cut to the chase…….

The shift in our hearts and minds toward a sense of abundance and gratitude rather than scarcity is a powerful working force in our lives. Most people tend to live from a sense of never having enough,…

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…

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’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…

Mold Relief

cleaning with essential oils

It’s bad enough we have to deal with dirty stinky socks, moms draw the line at the nasty intruder– mold.  You keep rubbing it out, scrubbing it out, and it still manages to creep back like some ugly black death plague invading your home.  The really twisted thing about it is they say mold doesn’t hurt anyone until it’s disturbed.  As in, removing the nasty stuff! I’m so thankful for Thieves, it’s my right-hand man…

Our furry kids…

There is only one kid left around here that I am allowed to call my “baby.”  All of 4 1/2 pounds, her official AKC name is “Slightly A Princess Grace Jubilee,” but she answers to “Gracie,” “muppet,” “frog” (teenager), and “dawg.” Nobody that has a pet can do so without our furry friends having us wrapped around their little paws, our hearts in their pocket, and causing us to act like complete idiots talking baby…

Sweet smelling carpet

Tip—Fresh Carpet “I used an old plastic sippy cup with a small hole in the lid to make a carpet freshener. I mix baking soda and a few drops of an essential oil, usually Lavender because it’s my favorite, then I sprinkle it around the carpet and let it sit for a minute or two and then vacuum it right up. My carpet is fresh, the room smells great, and the best part about it…
