Fall Into Wellness

Fall Into Wellness

As soon as I saw our first leaf fall, I ran to the cabinet to get my favorite fall combo for the diffuser. Adding it to the diffuser sent me into a deep fall trance. It's one of my favorite seasons.  This was not me 4 years ago. We didn't even have a diffuser and were not using Young Living to better our health. But a friend shared with me. She shared what Young Living was all about and I'll forever be grateful that she did. 

Wellness is within your hands! Get your wellness routine down pat so you can stay healthy this fall! 
Here is what I am doing and what I recommend for you. 
  • Thieves diluted along your spine and throat
  • RC, Raven, or Eucalyptus on your chest (ALL THE TIME)
  • A drop of Raven or Lavender in a bowl of gently steaming water, breathing it in with a towel over my head. Refreshing for the respiratory system and the skin!
  • Frankincense anywhere and everywhere (especially at night on my face before I moisturize)
  • Hot honey tea with, 1 drop of Lemon+ (from our food flavoring line)
  • Peppermint and Copaiba when required on my temples or neck
  • Life 9 Probiotic --a MUST for everyone #GutHealthEqualsImmuneHealth
  • Thieves or Immupower rolled onto your feet at night

This month, I want to encourage you to share your oils with ONE person. Aren't you glad your enroller shared with you?
If we all reach ONE person, we will help so many more people who are struggling to find wellness, purpose, and abundance. 
How to share your oils with others. 
Use your oils in front of your friends or family.
Share a sample with a friend in need.
Tell your mama, sister, brother, kids, cousin, or neighbor that they NEED their own kit!
Listen to what people are telling you they need. Use your reference materials to find some suggestions about what they can use. Show them the value of the Premium Starter Kit. Give them your very own member number so they can order their own PSK.
When you help a friend get a PSK, you will get a $64 "Thank you" check* for spreading the love. This is a great way to help others and get some extra holiday money. 
The Young Living business opportunity has blessed many families, even families on this very team. They are receiving monthly paychecks that cover their YL products, groceries, car payments, and even mortgages. I didn't think I would ever do this business and it has not only been a blessing for me but it has also changed the lives of those I have shared my oils with and helped order their very own Premium Starter Kit. 
I want to make sure you have seen the NEW 2018 Income disclosure statement. Here is a snapshot. Yes, those are MONTHLY incomes. 
Find the full Income Disclosure statement HERE.  
 If you need help finding your member number, I can help. 
*You must spend 50PV during the same calendar month that your new member orders the PSK in order to receive your $64. 

Swimming Lesson Epiphany

Swimming Lesson Epiphany
At my son's swimming lesson today, I started chatting with a fellow mompreneur. We were both sporting the leggings, messy ponytail, minimal makeup, stay-at-home mom look. She was clearly my people. We connected on the commonality of being passionate about our home businesses. You could tell, just by her voice and the way she looked at you, that this women had passion. Passion for her business, confidence in who she was and happiness with the time freedom her business allowed her. 

We got to chatting about being able to stay home with our children. She said she had many friends who had lost themselves once they became stay at home mothers. So consumed with their children, that they forgot who they were. It happens, I get it. She asked me "did you ever lose yourself?" I did. Very briefly but I did forget for a pinch of time that there was more to life than motherhood.  It's the best thing that every happened to me, don't get me wrong.  I remember saying to my husband that once my daughter was born, I was the absolute happiest I had ever been-and I was a happy person at the best of times but this feeling, was like nothing I'd ever felt before. Pure happiness and bliss. 

But moms out there, don't forget that you're more than a mom. You had friends, favorite places to go, hobbies and passions before kids. Don't lose that. 

My swimming lesson mama said to me that she was so happy she was working on her passion while raising her babies because she was one step ahead of the game when her kiddos would be in school full-time.  By the time that day comes, she'd have a successful home-based business and be saying "yes" to all the things she wanted in life (her kids are young like mine, so she's got a few years to work on this and I'm sure she'll be there). She said, when her kids have moved out, she won't be sitting there thinking "what should I do now?" or "it's time to take up a new hobby I guess!". 

Show your kids how Mommy is enjoying her life and doing what she loves.  Show them there is more to Mom than being "Mom". Teach them to run towards their passions instead of putting them on the back burner. 

If you feel like you have ever lost yourself in mom-hood, that's ok. And perhaps some of you would prefer to just dive right in and are most comfortable in this exact role. It's ok. You can stay here, but only for a short while. You can be Mom but throw a bit of "YOU" into the mix as well. I think you're kids will love her too. 

It's as easy as brushing your teeth!

"Do you use oils?"

This is the question I'm always asking people. I am so passionate about using them myself, I just assume everyone else in the world does or should. Most of the times, people tell me "no" or "sometimes". 

The "sometimes" crowd, this is for YOU. 

I get that, I totally get that because I was a "sometimes" gal as well once upon a time. I "sometimes" would diffuse a nice smelling essential oil in my home. Don't ask me what the brand was because back then, I really didn't care where my bottle of oils came from. I didn't realize the significance of an oil grade. Purity and ethical sourcing were not even in my thoughts. The fact that the oils came from plants that came from farms wasn't even a thought! If you know me now, I've come along way. I've even visited the farms our essential oil company owns. So there's that. 

After I purchased a Young Living Premium Starter Kit at a friend's home who was having an essential oils class, I wasn't "sometimes" using essential oils anymore. It quickly became a everyday, multiple times a day, multiple ways kinda thing. 

My "sometimes" crowd! Where you at!
 Is it because you don't understand how to use oils? Because let me tell ya-it's easy as heck if it's a Young Living oil. Aromatically (diffusing or sniffing the bottle straight up), topicalyl (diluting with a carrier oil-such as coconut oil, and applying to your skin), or for food flavoring!

This winter has been a doozy for many people catching all sorts of nasty colds. I believe that had I been a "sometimes" user of oils, my family may have caught a cold as well. BUT we are a "LIFESTYLE" type of user now and use oils for preventative measures and to be on our A-Game. 

Using oils is like brushing your teeth. You brush your teeth twice a day (sometimes more) to prevent cavities, gingivitis, gum disease, etc. Well, the same goes for using your essential oils!  It's a natural option to help support everyday ailments. 
Guys, it's super easy. Just put the oils on topically or diffuse every single day, multiple times a day-again,  like brushing your teeth! 

You keep your toothbrush and toothpaste by your sink and each morning, you go through the same motions. Do you have a medicine cabinet or shelf in your bathroom? Put your oils there so you remember to use them daily! Have a couple by your bedside table, in the kitchen, gym bag, purse and office.

The Premium Starter Kit-Helping Hot Messes Everywhere

The Premium Starter Kit-Helping Hot Messes Everywhere
Yeah I bought the kit. Back in 2014, I remember sitting down at my friend's house, signing up for something I wasn't sure if I'd use and definitely not understanding HOW I was going to use these oils. It took me approximately 2 months to realize, this was possibly the best investment I ever made......ever. 

The 11 oils in this little kit are used daily in our house, on our kids, in my car, at the gym, my work office, bathroom, bedroom, even on my dog. Have they saved me in countless situations?-yup. Am I a better person for being introduced to Young Living products?-a resounding heck yes. My wellness kit was the very beginning of what became a new lifestyle for our family. I had no idea I even needed to change the way we were doing life, but once you learn a bit about plant based products and the toxic crap that we typically have around our home, you tend to smarten up. 

I'm the kind of Mom who wants the very best for her kiddos but doesn't want to spend an arm and a leg. I also don't want to have to use the "Think Dirty" app on everything that I buy. I want to know the products that we use like toothpaste and bath gel don't contain toxic chemicals in them but I also don't want to spend countless hours comparing every product on the market.  Mama doesn't have time for that.

Que Young Living. 

They set the standards when it comes to purity and quality. They have a Seed to Seal program (consisting of 3 key pillars-Sourcing, Science & Standards) that is above and beyond what the rest of the essential oil industry does.  To learn more you can check out www.seedtoseal.com 

As a Mom, they put my mind at ease. Use that Thieves Cleaner, slather your body in their Lavender Lotion, get dolled up with their Savvy Minerals Makeup, apply their oils topically and be confident in doing all of these things! 

I've got more time to drink wine and less time researching chemicals and that's a win for this hot mess of a mom. 

Slowly switching to non-toxic products is my goal

Slowly switching to non-toxic products is my goal
It's been a journey, but slowly each month, I push more and more chemicals out of our home and life. This is a total win for our family! 
One of the easiest switches is dryer sheets. 

I was volunteering at my daughter's school today and many of the kid's clothes were drenched in the fragrance of dryer sheets and detergents. As they were reading to me, I was overtaken by the scent of these little human's clothes. I only had to be near them for 2 minutes or so but unfortunately, the kids have to walk around all day covered in toxic chemicals. 

If you are using dryer sheets or most brand name detergents, your kiddos don't see any relief from the toxic ingredients in these products. All day, everyday, their little body's are covered with hormone disrupting, carcinogenic products and their pores suck allllllll those poisons into their bloodstream. Kind of sounds like a nightmare when you put it that way hey?  Well, the truth is, it is; and these products can harm your health in many ways. If there was an option that prevented toxins from leaching into your child's body, wouldn't you want to make that change? 

Young Living can help you and your family make these little changes so that eventually, you can live a toxin free life. Start with your dryer sheets. Ditch those bad boys for wool dryer balls and add a few drops of Young Living essential oil like Lemon, Ylang Ylang, Joy or Lavender on them. Switch out your cleaners and laundry detergent for a plant based product like Thieves Cleaner and Thieves Laundry Soap. Small changes have a huge impact and we can help you help your family. 

Wishing you all the best this holiday season.

Here's to your wellness, purpose and abundance.
