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.

Do Essential Oils "ACTUALLY" Work?

Do Essential Oils "ACTUALLY" Work?
So here's the truth before you begin to read....I'm not an aromatherapist, doctor, or smarty pants for that matter. I'm a 33 year old mom of 2 who used to have a career in the oil and gas recruitment industry.  I've since hung up my" head hunting hat" and you can find me now in sweatpants, shuttling kids in carseats around to play dates and swimming lessons. 

That being said, I have come to learn a thing or two about essential oils in the past 2 and a half years. Do essential oils ACTUALLY work. The answer to that is abso-freakin-lutely. It just depends on the brand. 

 I'll try not to bore you but I'll give you the meat and potatoes as to why these little bottles of magic work. Essential oils are tiny molecules that can easily be absorbed through the pores in our skin. Their unique compositions work with our body's systems which is how they help support our wellness. When you smell an essential oil, those tiny molecules trigger the olfactory organ which sends signals to the limibic system of the brain. The limbic system controls our emotions, hormones, breathing,  blood pressure and much more.  

Do you ever smell a scent and instantly are reminded of a time in your life or a special person? It takes you back to that place and may even lead you to feel a certain way. 

Depending on the quality of your essential oils, you may not get the desired action you're looking for due to the oils quality and purity.  You might be willing to try natural alternatives or create a less toxic home by using essential oils but you want to be sure you're using the best of the best....otherwise, it could all be for nothing right? 

I can tell you as a lover of Young Living oils for over 2 years now, this brand DOES work. I've used other brands in the past but did not get the actions I was looking for-like not even close. 

"But Lisa, Young Living essential oils are more expensive!" I do hear this occasionally, but listen to this-when I have to use 10-15 drops in a diffuser of other brands of essential oils or constantly re-apply them to my skin and get no action, I'm willing to pay a bit more for Young Living when all it takes is 3-4 drops in the diffuser and 1-2 drops on my skin.  The price per drop is actually less.

So yes, essential oils do actually work and no, I will never stop using my YL oils.  See for yourself guys. For the rest of April (and that's only 6 days!), I will give you $15.00 back if you purchase a Premium Stater Kit. Simply sign up as a Member here: and send me an email/message letting me know you want $15.00 buckeroos back. I'm happy to offer this discount because I know you're mind will be blown and you'll have stories to tell me in a few weeks about how the oils "actually" worked for you too. 

Happy oiling and welcome to the Young Living lifestyle,

Lisa Cook

I found it!

I found it!
I found it. I found my passion, I found what I was truly meant to do in life. You might be thinking "Lisa Cook, you're full of beans!" People drift through life, day after day and go to a job that they might like or they might hate. And for what? Well obviously the do it to put food in the mouths of their babes, but why subject ourselves to an environment or career that we only sort of like (and many times, hate). Do you love it? Are you truly passionate about what you do? Do you want to do it forever and ever? Is your mind whispering to you, "Nooooooo".
I'm gonna tell ya right now that you're not giving that "other thing" you think you'd really love to do or want to try out a chance because you're scared. But what if I told you I became a home based mom boss very part time. What I love to do and what I'm passionate about will one day be an enormous organization of other like minded people all doing the same thing with me. But baby steps. That's all I ask. Baby steps will get you there, so take your passion and do it on the side. We still have to do what's best for our families and if that means working at your current place of work for another couple years while you build your true empire on the side, then DO IT! What are you waiting for? Take action now because the sooner you do, the faster you get to say "yes" to life and all it throws as you.
