DIY Deodorant

DIY Deodorant
Did you know that our body is meant to sweat.  That's a huge way our body gets rid of the toxins we are exposed to daily.  Years ago, I changed from heavy duty antiperspirants, that rarely even worked, to a healthier, homemade version!  Antiperspirants contain aluminum, to stop the sweat,  which is a huge no no for our health.  Did you know that aluminum is a huge cause of breast cancer?  They don't advertise that well known fact.  What can you do instead?  

Say no to conventional deodorant and say hello to natural, effective homemade deodorant that really works. It's easy to make, last for months, and only takes minutes to make!

This is a recipe I have used for years and honestly, it's the best I've ever tried!  Discover the luxury of deodorant made from your own home. Coconut oil, essential oils , baking soda and corn starch are combined to create a healthy, all-natural alternative to store-bought deodorants. You can even choose the scent!

The recipe is as follows

5 TBSP cold pressed organic coconut oil
1/4 C Baking Soda
1/4 C Corn Starch (can sub arrow root)
20 drops Young Living Essential Oils of choice (I love to use stress away or lavender, but you can choose what you like)

Mix this all together and store in a glass jar.  This can also be put into an empty deodorant tube and kept in the fridge if you like that sort of thing.

If you need to order some oils for this recipe, I got you!


Happy healthy day to you! 
Casey





Back to my roots!

Back to my roots!
Hello!!!!!! 
Well, lots has been going on recently and I'm so grateful for it all.   Life is full of change and growth, if we allow it.    Yesterday was a huge day for me. I did something I said i would "never" do.   I moved back to Ocala, Fl.  The town where i spent most of my adult life.  The town I said I had to leave because I outgrew it.    Well, God has a sense of humor because I'm back 6 years later.    I'm back, but with a different mindset. a different side of town, a different attitude.  And I'm grateful for all of it.  Every single thing!  ❤️ 

That being said, I'm still doing what fuels my heart.  Sharing a healthier lifestyle that includes a lot of wonderful ways to use plants!  I've been with Young Living now for over 7 years and my passion in the products and company has only gotten stronger.    Why?  Because they freakin work wonders.  Because, I keep seeing lives TRANSFORMED by the use of these products.    Because my life has been transformed, and I've been given another shot at life. A do-over, I believe.  A reset!   But that came at a cost of changing the things and ways I used to do and be.  A cost I would gladly pay over and over.   The transformation is fulfilling in ways I can't explain in words but only feelings ❤️     

Hurt. Pain, sorrows, past regrets, past struggles, past shoulda, coulda, wouldas. All of these things happen to everyone. Yep, every single person. The difference between being burdened and free is simply learning to RELEASE! Let go. Allow.
In those things comes peace. In those things comes freedom. In those things comes joy. But you gotta let that shit go first.
I challenge you to drop some of the past burdens you’ve been carrying  for way too long and learn to allow new, better experiences to fill your heart and mind instead.

I don’t know about you, but I am all about a tasty summer salad. You get to enjoy those garden-fresh ingredients while not overloading your stomach. Plus - it’s healthy! It’s a win-win.
If you want to take it up a notch, do yourself a favor and whip up this simple vinaigrette. You can even play around with the Vitality oil and take it in a different direction. Try it and let me know what you think!

Babies want to enjoy the summer too - so we can’t forget about them! Their skin deserves to be washed in something gentle and beneficial to their bodies. Ditch the stuff filled with synthetic fragrances and harsh chemicals and replace it with something you can love and trust… like Seedlings Baby Wash & Shampoo. It’s formulated without sulfates, parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, animal-derived ingredients, synthetic preservatives, synthetic fragrances, or synthetic dyes. Oh - and it can be used on older kids and adults too!
