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,…

Yummy snack on the go

“I discovered a delicious lunch or snack: I add one scoop of Balance Complete™ to ½ cup Greek-style yogurt, a teaspoon of agave, and a sliced banana. This fills me up and keeps me going for quite a few hours. It is a great way to keep hunger at bay and get some calcium and fiber in my diet. The taste is yummy, too.” Luana Navarro

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…

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…

Essential oils bugs don’t like

Hospitality is good and all, but I draw the line and hosting insects.  Ewww.  Here is a list of some oils to discourage the nasty little things. Ants: Don’t like Peppermint or Spearmint.  I can personally testify to the Peppermint thing, which was the only way I was able to win the war on hordes of ants marching into my home one summer. I drew a line (literally) on the metal threshold of my sliding…

Supplements, nutrition, eat better, yadda, yadda…

So you get out of bed feeling like a slug. Yuk. Lose the Starbucks, honey, we got way better stuff to put some pep in your step. Possibly, using these supplements on a regular basis sort of cancels out the french fries….  I think. Everyday Nutrition and Essential Oil Supplements Hectic schedules and increasing personal demands make eating a well-balanced diet seem impossible. The average person consumes only a fraction of the recommended nine daily…
