How to Get the Best Hair, Skin, and Nails!

Are you ready? We are about to dive right into the basics of the integumentary system. In other words, we are going to talk about your hair, skin, and nails - and how to support them! 

So often we look at our hair, skin, or nails and think it only needs support from the surface, but that is not the case! Now don’t get me wrong, taking care of those things topically matters. But what I want to challenge you with today is to focus on what’s happening on the inside and how it affects what you see happening on the outside

Our body is a complex web of interworking systems. When your liver is abused, you might start to notice it in the color of your skin. When your gut isn’t working properly, you might start to notice things like psoriasis or eczema. When your hormones are imbalanced, you might start to see an increase in acne or hair loss. See how it all connects? 

Well, don’t let that overwhelm you. We will discuss the basics of the integumentary system so you can see the whole picture. Then we will talk about some of the WORST things you can do and some of the BEST things you can do for your hair, skin, and nails. We want you to leave feeling more empowered than ever! Ready to dive in? Let’s go! 

Fun in the Sun

While summer is one of the most amazing times of the year, it brings unique challenges. How do you best care for and support your body during this season?  How do you protect your skin from the sun or rehydrate after long days in the water? How can you keep those pesky bugs away or survive the traveling stresses that arise on family vacations and adventures?

If you want easy answers to these questions, I have the best-kept secrets for summer travelers like you! This post is about setting you up for success on the hot summer days and your travel journeys. 

So, let's just dive right in, shall we?

Bones, Muscles, and Joints...How to Support the Musculoskeletal System

Our bodies were made for movement, but sadly so many of us deal with issues in this department. Joint stiffness, muscle aches, deteriorating cartilage, inflammation, swelling, and the list goes on. Nobody wants to spend their days focused on pain, right?! So let’s unpack some ways we can support our musculoskeletal systems. 
We are going to cover the basics and get you set up to start making some positive changes. You’ll know how this system works, what things you may want to avoid, and what things you might want to start implementing. Let’s get started! 

Gardening and Oils

I have been waiting for MONTHS to talk to you about gardening.  As soon as the temps started to rise here in Florida, I was itching to start my garden back up.  I know plenty of people enjoy seasons, but I find any temperature lower than 60 degrees offensive, lol.  

Without waiting any longer...let's dive into gardening with oils.

So you’re a gardener...or maybe a startup gardener! Wherever you land, there are some basic things that seem to apply to everyone during the stages of their gardening journey.
Things like weeds, pests, and bad harvests show up in every garden, every year. But this class is going to be your ticket to tackling even the hardest of seasons. You’ll have tricks up your sleeve that will help you succeed from the day the seed goes into the ground until the day you harvest it. 
Using essential oils in the gardening process helps us garden in a way that results in fruits and veggies that have been lovingly cared for in the most organic way. You can even achieve that affordably, sustainably, and without the use of harsh chemicals, friend! 

Summer Social

This post will give you some cool summer secrets and teach you how to use AMAZING Young Living products to enhance your summer experiences!

Every good meal starts with a yummy starter, so let's begin with some appetizer recipes. Appetizers give your guests teaser bites of delicious flavors while they mingle and wait for the main course! Put all those garden-grown and farmers' market veggies to great use with these recipes!

Surviving Summer

Our school has an extremely late spring break...mid-April.  I love that the weather will be warm during our break, but having that time off together this late in the year has us all ready for summer.  We threw together our favorite late Florida spring break/summer survival tips, including our favorite oils and products that will save you this season. You will hear how to survive the great outdoors with fantastic skin-loving products, tasty snacks, and easy DIY recipes.  Next, we will dive into surviving all those summer cookouts with oil-infused recipes that everyone will love. 

Gift Guide for Moms!

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and we have some great ideas that will help you show every mother in your life how special she is to you! Whether she needs a little time to relax, some extra energy from taking care of all the things, some time for pampering, a little emotional TLC, or just some good old-fashioned rest, here are a few ideas that we love!

All Things Thieves

Health and wellness is on the rise but many products that are being advertised as “safe” and “all-natural”, are anything but.  The packages are pretty and the labels are clever, but the more you dig, the more you find out. Let me help you decide what’s truly safe and give you the tools you need to start making simple swaps for a healthier home. 

The American Lung Association explains how many common household cleaning products can lead to health problems like eye and throat irritation, headaches, respiratory issues, allergic reactions, worsened asthma, and possibly even cancer! Yuck!! We don’t want that. 

DIY Perfuming Basics

Did you know that wearing perfume or cologne is a confidence booster?! People say they feel more confident when they have a killer scent on. Some people even feel ‘naked’ when they forget to put it on during their daily routine. Whether you're a daily wearer or you only apply for special occasions, we all know the power of smell.  They can transport us thru time and space to grandma's kitchen, or a sweet childhood memory out in nature with friends or family.  They can also leave a lasting impression of US on others.  The smell of your tantalizing perfume will linger in their mind..... 

Unfortunately, cosmetic fragrances, body sprays, lotions, and perfumes are not all they are cracked up to be. 

Yep.... there are toxic chemical synthetics lurking in there too. Cancer 
is not sexy. Disrupted hormones...not sexy. Infertility. Not sexy. So how can you smell like a goddess safely?!

I've got your back, once again.

Simple Swap: Massage oil for lubricant...v-day special

A pretty important ditch & switch...
As the gatekeepers of our homes, we have such a great opportunity to bring in healthy products and create healthy habits for ourselves and our families. This month, we're making a simple swap with a big impact. Ditch personal lubricants and use nontoxic massage oils instead!

When it comes to physical intimacy, there are many things that can help or hinder us in the process. One simple way we can enhance our experience with products that don’t harm our health is with this line of massage oils. For use as a personal lubricant, Relaxation or Sensation Massage Oil would be a great choice.

Creating a Cozy Atmosphere

When preparing your home for the holidays, it’s important to set the mood and create an atmosphere that feels “homey” and inviting for your guests and your family. Don’t grab the typical sprays and plug-ins you find in the stores. So many are filled with absolute junk you do not want floating around the air. The same rings true for most household cleaners.

Happy Hormones for Women

I am so excited you’re joining me to learn more about how to holistically take control of your own health, hormones, and happiness!! As women, finding balance with our hormones is key to living a healthy lifestyle! In this post, I want to help you demystify hormones and how to holistically support them! 


If you're ready to ditch coping mechanisms that leave you feeling numb, zoned out, or worse than you did when you started them, reach for the CBD Drops or CBD Roll-on and find a way to physically process the emotions. Don't push them away or stuff them. Allow yourself to feel them, apply CBD, and move your body to release stored emotions. Walk, swim, jog, dance, just move! This movement paired with CBD can help you process whereas buffering with a coping mechanism cannot. 

Lavender Spotlight

Lavender Spotlight
Lavender, aka the loving grandmother of essential oils, has a scent that's a wonderful blend of fresh, floral, clean, and calm. It's this dynamic aroma that has made the plant a classic for perfumes, soaps, fresheners, and beauty products! Lavender is a great beginner oil and a must for every home. Lavender is also highly versatile -- from skin care products to relaxing routines, this oil can infuse and enhance many areas of your life!

Read on for more about why we love this oil and ways to use it daily...



Essential oils are aromatic, volatile liquids distilled from plants. The oil can be obtained from the roots, seeds, shrubs, flowers, leaves, and trees, and bring health and healing to the body. They provide support for every system in the body: skeletal, muscular, circulatory, endocrine, respiratory, and immune systems, by equalizing hormones, supporting brain health, and a healthy weight.  


Homemade Spray Hand Sanitizer

Tis the season for runny noses and germs.  Now I know there’s a whole school of thought that germs aren’t bad and we should all just relax and shake the hands of strangers, and open bathroom doors without using a toe/Matrix maneuver, and just go on eating that soft pretzel that fell on the floor of the mall food court.


Hey friends,

As I get ready for a class I’ll be giving tonight I started to reflect on how I became interested in essential oils.  To be honest, years ago I was reluctant, a non-believer, and hesitant when it came to oils.  That said, I’m overly joyed and grateful that that I was introduced to them and forever thankful that oils are in my life.  Here is my story why…
A few years ago our family had, perhaps, it’s most challenging year. It was littered with moving trucks, hotel rooms, long drives, and plane rides; the year truly stressed our family.  During that year we moved from Kansas to Florida for John to receive flight training, then from Florida to Illinois (thanks Mom and Dad!) for a temporary landing spot while John deployed overseas, and then from Illinois to a temporary VRBO house while we waited for a longer permanent option to present itself.

Let’s talk about this starter kit.  Whether you want to keep your family healthy, use essential oils to support your kids’ sleep, use essential oils to support your stress level, or detox your home the Premium Starter Kit is the way to go. You can get it for $165 and it really does set you up to support most issues ranging from digestion, nontoxic cleaning, stress, focus, weight, sleep, and so much more.  If you purchased the pieces separately, it would cost you over $400!


Back to School


Hi friends! Amber and I were just talking about what we can do to support students and teachers as we all go back to school.  My kids go back to school on Wednesday this week, so I’m gathering our whole arsenal of back-to-school products, oils, procedures, and getting everything set up asap.  I thought who better to talk to than my favorite oily teacher about all this!  I hope you enjoy this little chat with Amber as much as I did. 

If you need to grab some oils to get ready for school and you need Amber to hook you up, order here and you won’t regret it! She’ll be in touch shortly after your order processes!
