Practicing gratitude in the busy




Hey and happy thanksgiving week!!  
This week  officially brings  in the busy season with it and I wanted to give you a quick reminder.   I want to remind you during these times of busy-ness, parties, sugar cookies and making sure everyone else is taken care of, make sure to take care of you first. Here’s a simple practice: take a few minutes in the morning before you even get your feet on the floor, to be grateful. State to yourself 5 things you’re grateful for and try to feel the emotion with it.  Practice it. Make it a habit. Heck, even add a gratitude journal You’d be amazed at what you start to write about.  The change comes with the practice. Keep going, even if you skip a day or 3. Give yourself grace and start again.  You’re enough! Today the Black Friday week of deals has dropped!

When Life Happens

When Life Happens
Hello friends.   Today is a great day to have a great day no matter what comes your way.

That being said, life is amazing, especially when you focus on the blessings of it all

Life happens.  
That being said, when it happens in ways we don't expect we have 2 choices.  We can roll with it, or get flustered and upset over it.   It's a choice.   We can react, or respond.    Huge differences between the two. ❤️ 

Reacting is usually not pleasant to you or your body.  It's usually a triggered reaction from something we've supressed instead of dealt with.  Responding, takes a breath first then realizes stuff happens and more will happen too.    All of it happens for you and your benefit. *Life happens for you, not to you.   Let me say that again, Life happens FOR you, not TO you.  That's right, ❤️ 

Learning that the peace in life is found in the present moment.   Not in the past things we coulda done, shoulda done or woulda done.  It's not in the future of how we think things should work out could work out or can work out.    That's the joy of the present.    It's right now.  It's the only place we can be calm, cool and collected.  The present moment is the only thing we have active control over anything.  Our reactions.  period.    Life is gonna keep happening, and it's never gonna go as planned, so stop getting pissed or disappointed when it goes different than you wished.   It's happening for you.   ❤️ 


Now on another note, a great way to help yourself stay in the present is with taking time each day to consciously. be present.  AKA meditation,   Learning to focus your thoughts on your breath.  One breath at a time.  I love to use my oils while I meditate for a deeper peace.   Did you know essential oils actually affect the limbic system (our emotions) in so many ways. That's why smelling things brings back memories.    Now to create new memories and intentions by bringing these scents into your meditation to train your brain to relax when you smell them.  Try it, it works.   Some of my favorite oils to meditate with are palo santo, believe, grounding, frankincense, and present moment.   But as we are all so different, the choice is up to you.  
This month is a great month too to stock up on gifts for your friends, family and yourself!   Our Holiday gift catalog is out and NEXT WEEK, we're having one heck of a Thanksgiving sale!! Up to 30% off on 30 of our best sellers!!!!    We have a special zoom link to show you some great ways to use some of these favorite items!!  Here's a graphic to share the deets!

Under The Mistletoe Breath Spray
This little bottle will be your mistletoe BFF!! Perfect to pack in your purse, backpack or even stash in your car, this simple breath spray will have your breath feeling fresh whenever you need it!

  • 1/4 Cup White Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil*
Combine essential oils and coconut oil, then add in sugar. Apply nightly to lips in a circular motion. Wipe off with a dry towel. Store in a glass jar!
*To make this extra special and creamy, whip the coconut oil in a stand mixer or handheld mixer until it is fluffy!
Winter Nights Holiday Body Scrub
If the North pole had a signature scent, this would be it! This simple DIY leaves your skin silky smooth and its dreamy winter scent is perfect for the season. Make it for yourself or package it up with a cute ribbon and gift it to a friend!
  • 1/4 cup organic fractionated coconut oil

Mix Winter Nights & Vanilla with fractionated coconut oil in a glass container, then add organic cane sugar to the bowl and stir until combined.
To use, massage into skin in a circular motion and rinse well. After exfoliating, moisturize with Young Living’s Winter Nights Hand and Body Lotion.
Peppermint Latte Coffee Scrub
This simple DIY is always a crowd pleaser and is great for winter hands, especially when followed with the Very Vanillamint Body Butter.
  • 1 cup organic ground coffee
  • 1 cup cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 10 drops Peppermint essential oil
  • 10 drops Vanilla oleoresin (or EOs of choice - Cardamom, Thieves, etc.)
  • Small glass jar(s)
Mix coffee grounds and sugar together, then add melted coconut oil and essential oils. Mix well and place in a glass jar. Top with burlap and tie with twine and a sprig of fresh rosemary for a festive gift!
There really is no substitute for the Very Vanillamint Set from Young Living, but if you missed the ordering deadline this DIY is your next best bet!
Place coconut oil and shea butter in a bowl and whip with a handheld or stand mixer until fluffy and smooth. Slowly add in the jojoba oil, then the essential oils, mixing as you add. Whip for about five minutes or so. The longer you mix, the fluffier it will become!
Easy DIY Bath Bombs
If you missed out on the new Sweet Maple and KidScents Bath Bombs or want to DIY-it for a custom scent, this recipe is for you!
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 2 Tbsp epsom salts
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 20-30 drops essential oil(s) of choice*
  • 1 tsp water or more if necessary
  • Silicone molds or large ice cream scoop
In a large bowl combine baking soda, citric acid, and epsom salts. Stir well. In a smaller bowl combine coconut oil and essential oil. Slowly whisk wet ingredients into dry. It should reach a crumbly consistency.
Your mixture is ready when you can mold it into a shape and it sticks without coming apart. If it is too crumbly, add in water, 1 tsp at a time. Mixture should be dry but able to hold a shape. To shape your bath bombs either pack them into your molds or a large ice cream scoop. Leave in the molds overnight, then remove carefully and place on a baking sheet to dry.
Oil pairing ideas: Peppermint + Vanilla, Lavender + Peppermint, Lavender + Vanilla, Eucalyptus + Lemon, Believe + Vanilla, Gratitude + Tangerine


Till next time,  Thank you and God Bless you and your path and may You have Peace every day.

The end of the year is upon us!

The end of the year is upon us!
Hey there!

Thanksgiving has come and gone already, but seriously, YAY!   That means there's only one more month left of 2020.  Who agrees it's been a wild ride, but all in all it's been a year of so much change and growth.  Challenges included, this year has been a good one overall.  Having an attitude of gratitude in the midst of turmoil and challenges is where it's at. Gratitude is scientifically proven to make positive changes deep in your body, on a cellular level! WOW!(feel free to look that up).  It's easy to be grateful when everything is hunky dory, but when it really matters most is when life hits hard.  Trying to keep your focus on the things you have to be grateful for is a great way to start a lasting change.  One day at a time. We have one more month in the year to make it count.  Let's start a new habit, a month early from the traditional new year's resolutions. *insert giggle      I challenge you to think of 5 things you're grateful every morning before you open your eyes then again in the day and again in bed, before you fall asleep.    When you make gratitude a habit, it becomes a lifestyle, life is better, your perspective is better.     It's a good thing.   

On the topic of gratitude, I'm so grateful for Young Living. Such an amazing company that loves people and uses every opportunity to give back to the members, communities and the needs of others.  Our company is standing the test of time and has experienced almost supernatural growth over the last 5 yrs.   It's been so fast, our current website platform can't keep up.   As you might've heard, they are releasing a Brand New Website in December!  It will be done in stages but I can't wait for everyone to see and experience this new educational resource and shopping all in one.    *everything is being revamped and updated for efficiency and stability for growth in the future.   This is amazing news and I can hardly contain my excitement.  

I wanted to share some cozy diffuser recipes to give you some  fresh ideas.    I absolutely love, love, love that these plant oils not only smell amazing, but have the ability to support all of our body systems in different fashions.   It's all so amazing to me and I am a converted skeptic for sure!   Not sure how or what to do with them other than smell, start searching in our FB groups, and we also have so many other resources available.  The LSP Desk reference is one.   This is a resource I feel every home needs.   Full of detailed information on every single page.   I love it so much, I'm giving one away in December! That's right, I'm giving one away to one blessed tribe member!    To qualify, just place a 250 pv order from today until Dec 25!    That's it!  Easy right!   It's super easy to get your order there. Think of supplements, makeup, cleaning products, weight support, OILS(duh), GIFT sets for your friends!   You can also always gift someone a membership so they can get their own goodness delivered to their house.   What a gift!   Ask me or your enroller how, it's super easy!
