Meet Linda Grupa

Life is a tapestry. Woven into it are faces and places, beliefs and experiences that form the design.  I believe the designer and maker is Jesus Christ.  I trust Him to turn the broken and misaligned threads into a perfect work that functions for His purpose.

By nature, I prefer to be the background with space and time to be creative. I love working with fabric, such as upholstery tapestry, and furniture restoration. My home is (over) filled with my furniture creations which means many pieces are sold or go to the homes of others.

As a nurse I’ve practiced my nursing and leadership skills in a variety of settings: Long term care, Home Care, Public Health, Hospital care, including most recently, a decade of Infection Prevention and Control. Promoting health is a passion.

Often however, healthcare is more about ill care, rather than promoting a healthy lifestyle as I too experienced. My own health took a nose-dive. A purse full of pills of all sorts could not alleviate the physical and emotional dis-ease I experienced. For years, the discomfort persisted despite the advice of many doctors, counselors, special diets and various alternative health practices.

At the right time, God directed me to a spiritually grounded psychiatrist with a background in general medicine. Her holistic approach opened the door to better control of my total health. My recovery however, hit a plateau and I couldn’t quite attain the health freedom I sought. Then one day a friend introduced me to essential oils. A bit cautious, I tested the water, so to speak, and tried Frankincense. And then another oil and another oil …..because they made me feel better than I had in decades!!! One by one, the symptoms that crippled me resolved.

What are these essential oils? Extracted from plants essential oils work naturally without toxins or frustrating, harmful side effects. Essential oils are God’s goodness. He designed us for health and surrounded us with a garden of plants. From ancient times…long before ‘modern medicine’… essential oils and herbs were valued for their healing properties. New technologies allow companies extract essential oils from plants in quantities and at prices affordable to many more people. No longer is the knowledge of healing plants the secrets of a few practitioners, but is now available to all of us.

In this blog you’ll read about my passions including the wonder I find each day using essential oils. Social media creates a thread that brings our lives together in an emerging tapestry.  I hope you will join me in experiencing the power of essential oils. God bless.

Updates from Linda Grupa


Affordably clean house and laundry without nasty toxins!

Like you, I'm on a quest to consistently GOOD health without breaking the bank.  On that journey, I've been little by little eliminating exposure to  environmental toxins that stress the body.  And these toxins are as close as the products I use everyday to clean my home and clothing!  I'm about to share with you a few baby steps I took this month to detox my home:

1)   Got my very own Thieves cleaning BUCKET !!  [and used itto clean the house!]
2)   Made DIY laundry soap
3)   Made DIY dryer sheets

Thieves Cleaning Kit

This month I ordered up my own Thieves cleaning kit!  WHA HOO.  It's amazing.   The Thieves Home Cleaning Kit is the perfect introduction to natural cleaning and provides you with a foundation of cleaning tools and supplies to utilize Young Living’s 100% pure essential oils. It includes the tools I need to clean and protect my house without using harsh, chemicals while making it smell amazing with Citrus Fresh, Lemon, Pine, Purification, and Thieves essential oils.

The kit also includes a large stainless steel bucket, 16 oz. amber glass spray bottle [because we all know essential oils react with plastics!], cleaning cloth, oil bottle carrying case, and cleaning recipe instructional booklet.
The recipes in the kit will make these products:
  • All-Purpose Cleaner [how easy is this?!  And smells great in the kitchen and bath]
  • Deep-Cleaning Scrub
  • Garbage Disposal Freshener Tablets
  • Degreaser
  • Refrigerator and Enamel Appliance Cleaner
  • Appliance Spot Remover
  • Air Freshener Spray
  • Glass Cleaner
  • Toilet Bowl Cleaner [these are a lot of fun to make and use....fizzzzz]

  • Hard Surface Floor Cleaner

  • Laundry Freshener
You too can get started today creating simple and natural cleaning solutions that are not only effective, but safe to use around every member of your family, including children and pets.

Now before we jump into do-it-yourself recipes for home cleaning, I gotta tell you, Young Living makes it so easy to do the right thing.  They have created an entire line of popular cleaning products.  If DIY is not yo thing, check out  the line up!

Now, let's get to it.  Starting off here with laundry.

DIY Laundry Soap

This is super easy with only 4 ingredients.  If you have sensitive skin, or wanting to eliminate toxins in the laundry, try this recipe!

1 cup washing soda
1 cup Borax
1 - 5 oz. bar Castille soap
20 drops lime or lemon essential oil or oil you prefer...maybe something from the Thieves kit!
1.  Grate the Castille soap with a cheese grater or food processor.  I grated it.

2.  In a large bowl or half gallon mason jar, mix all ingredients with a spoon.  

3.  I ran everything through my blender to give it a fine texture....before adding the essential oil.  At the last minute I charged it up with a little Thieves essential oil blend.

4.  Use 1-2 Tablespoons laundry detergent for a load of laundry.
5.  Store in mason jars with lid.  

This recipe makes 24 ounces of detergent.

DIY Dryer Sheets

Ready to put those clean clothes in the dryer?  Wait.  Homemade dryer sheets with essential oils are a great alternative to using commercial dryer sheets. They both make your clothes softer, reduce static cling and they make your laundry smell wonderful but there are a few major differences between the two.

Have you noticed then when you touch commercial dryer sheets, they’re coated with something that feels a little oily? What you’re feeling is the chemicals used to soften your clothes and stop static cling. The problem is that while your laundry is drying, these toxins are covering all of the items in the dryer.   Each time you wear something or sleep on sheets that you dried with a commercial dryer sheet, the chemicals rub off onto your skin, which absorbs them into your body. Over time, they can cause a variety of health problems.   

When you make your own dryer sheets with essential oils, you’re using all natural ingredients that are safe and non-toxic and they have other benefits, too.

Here are five of the most popular essential oils used for homemade dryer sheets:
You can also experiment with different oils and blends to find the ones best suited for your family.

For years, I had stopped using the commercial products because they clogged up my washer and the sheets were too smelly.    I had been looking for a solution to winter static cling.  Now I found it!  This recipe is easy to do and I love how well it works.

How to Make Dryer Sheets Using Essential Oils

To make your own dryer sheets, you’ll need some washcloths, essential oils, an airtight container and white vinegar to soften your laundry and reduce static cling. Instead of washcloths, you can cut a towel, or an old cotton tee-shirt into small sections and use it for the dryer sheets.

Pour some vinegar in a bowl, add your essential oils and gently mix (ratio for this is 1/2 cup of vinegar and 5-10 drops of essential oil: adjust with the size of your container). Pour the mixture into the airtight container and place your washcloths inside.

To use, take one out, squeeze the liquid out, and toss it in the dryer before each load. Place it back in the container when you’re done. It’s that simple and the results are fantastic.

TIP:  To reduce the vinegar smell, add equal parts of distilled water.

 Making your own dryer sheets is a healthy alternative to commercial sheets that contain harmful chemicals that could have an adverse effect on your health. They’re easy to make and your laundry has never smelled better.

I-Love-My-Oils! Newsletter -- Happy March

Hey there, happy March! Can you believe that it’s almost Spring already? Winter might linger, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get a head start on some new beginnings and bright horizons, right? Well, Young Living has a LOT of new and exciting things happening, and I wanted to make sure you know all about them. Let’s start with the PV promos for March, but I promise it doesn’t end there. Let’s take a look.


Here's the full breakdown of the US March PV promos:

100 PV:
Lemon Vitality 5-ml*

Thieves Dish Soap
Citrus Fresh 15-ml*

*Remember, in order to get the Essential Rewards Exclusive Lemon Vitality 5-ml and the Essential Rewards Exclusive Citrus Fresh 15-ml, you have to be enrolled in Essential Rewards (ER) and have an order that meets the PV requirements for those items. The extra bonus of meeting these PV amounts with your ER order is that you get even more ER points to spend later!

Okay, so this covers the WHOLE world of fresh starts for Spring. From getting into the spirit of Spring cleaning with the Thieves Household Cleaner and an awesome 16 oz. glass spray bottle to use with it (this stuff is amazing, and if you need help on how to use it best just let me know!) and the Thieves Dish Soap, to giving our bodies a fresh feel with Lemon Vitality (really good in the morning with a glass of water or in some NingXia Red). Plus, Citrus Fresh to help uplift moods and Hope to help get our minds right and motivate us to look at life through a new and exciting lens! I love every single item in the promos, and I know you will too. 

Like I said, the promos aren’t the only exciting things happening with Young Living. Two amazing oils came back in stock and will be available while supplies last: Hinoki and Grounding! Grounding is a blend that is designed to help center you emotionally and spiritually and help get your mind right, even if things have been a bit rough. Hinoki has similar qualities but it has a rich, unique citrusy aroma and can help promote feelings of confidence and self-worth! Both are incredible, and like I said, they’re only here for now while supplies last. Grounding can only be ordered on Essential Rewards and is limited to 2 bottles per month, and Hinoki can be ordered on both Quick Orders and Essential Rewards, but it’s limited to one bottle per month. If you’re wanting to try either, now’s the perfect time! 

Another exciting piece of news is that Young Living recently made a few changes to their Premium Starter Kits! First, they replaced R.C. and Purification with Raven and Citrus Fresh. Don’t worry, you can still get R.C. and Purification, they just won’t come in the kit anymore. Raven is similar to R.C in how it works, but it creates a really nice soothing and cooling sensation when you apply it to your check, throat, or back. A lot of people will combine it with some coconut oil and make a salve or rub out of it. I definitely recommend diluting it if you’ve never tried it. Citrus Fresh is one that you might be familiar with, but it’s incredible. A blend of a citrus oils and Spearmint, you can throw it in the diffuser by itself to help start out the day right or get the house in a better mood, or you can add it to your nighttime moisturizer to help tone and smooth the appearance of skin! Plus, they replaced the essential oil samples that used to come with the kit with a Thieves Household Cleaner Packet! This is an amazing way to get more people cleaning with a non-toxic cleaner that really gets the job done. So, both oils and the Thieves Household Cleaner Packet are great additions the Premium Starter Kits, and if you know anyone who’s been interested in oils, they are great talking points! 

Not only that, but Young Living also now has a new Premium Starter Kit that comes with the Desert Mist diffuser!! The Desert Mist is AMAZING. It has 11 light settings (including a flickering light setting that looks like a candle), 3 diffuser settings (High will diffuse for 5-6 hours, Low will diffuse for 8 hours, and the Intermittent setting will diffuse for up to 10 hours!), and it has a very stylish look that will go with pretty much any existing décor. So, with the new oils, the Thieves Household Cleaner Packet, and the new Desert Mist option for the Premium Starter Kit, now’s the perfect time for your friends to join us in this wonderful world of oils.

And there’s even more…that Thieves Household Cleaner packet that now comes with the Premium Starter Kits…well they’re selling those in 10-packs as well! That makes it so easy to give out some samples to your friends and family or have them for on the go! They’re each 1 oz., so it’s enough for one whole spray bottle’s worth of cleaning! Just put it in a glass bottle or a plastic bottle that’s made for cleaners and fill the rest with distilled water and you’re ready to go! 

See, I told you there was some pretty amazing stuff happening. ;) As always, if you have any questions about ANYTHING, just let me know. I’m here to help with whatever you need! I hope you have a wonderful March and that Spring gets here soon so the flowers can start blooming!
