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!!

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!
  • 10mL glass spray bottle

Add all ingredients into a spray bottle and shake well. Spritz into your mouth as desired!

This simple lip scrub is perfect for all your mistletoe moments this season!
  • 5 drops Peppermint essential oil
  • 5 drops Vanilla oleoresin
  • 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.

Gratitude

Gratitude
     Today as I  sit outside and enjoy the morning sounds I’m grateful.    I’m grateful for so manyyyy things it’s hard to even begin to share all of them.  
     That being said, I also am going thru one of the most difficult times in my life right now where it feels like everything is coming against me at once.  I mean, really, can I catch a break, please?
     Even in all that turmoil, I still stay focused on the things I’m grateful for. Do you know why?  Because gratitude is the absolute highest frequency and vibration out there.  Gratitude brings things your way to be grateful for.   For example, yesterday after something I had to do, that I didn’t want to, but was grateful for the opportunity, I was craving a fruit bowl. So I went to the place, Nektar in Jax beach(amazing stuff) anyway, the lady in front of me had a coupon she couldn’t use and gave it to me.   My fruit bowl was FREE!  I didn’t earn it, I didn’t ask for it, I just was grateful for the ability to be there and receive it.
Gratitude opens our hearts up for receiving in life.    Receiving  everything you’ve ever hoped for is God’s desire for you.    So, even in your struggles, remember to be grateful for every little thing.  They become the big things over time.  Love to you!

HELLOOO There!!!!

I'm sooo excited!!!   
This last week was our International Grand Convention with YL!   In the Summer, we all fly out to Salt Lake City and have a Grand time with over 35,000 people, but, this last year has been different.  That being said, the convention was held virtually again this year, so lots of us got together in Orlando at a giant resort with huge homes as rentals!   We all stayed in a neighborhood and it was a great experience together even though it was in smaller groups.  Here's one of the photos we captured during the event!   We also celebrated rank achievements and I got to be recognized for reaching the rank of Gold with YL.  Thank you! Super grateful and exciting!

Being a part of this community has not only helped grow my business, but they also help with personal growth and development.  We support each other in so many ways and it's encouraging to watch people soar.    It still amazes me daily that I stumbled across this company as a way to help heal my body, and ditch the fragrance in my home almost 6 years ago.   Not only has my body completely done a turn around, but I get to experience so many other's success stories with these amazing products and oils.
LIFE CHANGiNG RESULTS YALL!!!!

Do you know I said NO to Young Living 4 times before I said YES.    I was ignorant.  Ignorant of the power of EO's. Ignorant of the company and what it stood for.  Ignorant of the income opportunity that was possible.  Ignorant of the community I would grow to love.  Ignorant of the ways I could be an impact in my community to help others.   I WAS IGNORANT.   Then I learned.  Now, I share.     It all started when I started Using the products in my every day life.  My life started to change. My body felt better. I knew I had made the right decision and 6 yrs later, I'm still soo passionate about this company and how we are changing the world, one bottle of oil at a time.  

Here's my story, if you haven't heard how YL changed my life  My story

This company never ceases to amaze me with how they take our feedback as members and do their best to make it happen!  Also in the next few months, they are Completely giving us a new website! WHAT!!!  YESSS!!!  One that can handle the amount of people that use it and have less issues.  Also, another big announcement, after Sept 1, FREE SHIPPING!!!! You heard right!

HAPPY SPRING!!!!!

HAPPY SPRING!!!!!






Hey! 

 Happy 43rd quarantine Sunday.   As I write this from my bedroom on my laptop, listening to church on my phone, I find myself truly grateful.  Grateful to be alive in a time like this and I'm grateful for technology in a time of isolation.  Like most of you, my son and I have been home for almost a month except for groceries, take out, or yard supplies.  I keep finding projects in the yard and house to keep me busy and for my sanity.   Amidst the business of projects, I'm also allowing myself days of complete rest too.  It's ok.  Balance.  This is a new season for all of us. It's different for most and challenging for some.  I pray peace over each and every one of you and safety over your households.   

Now with all this time at home, my diffusers are going non stop.  Not only for the smell, but for the clean air, the negative ions, and the emotional and body support.   I am so grateful for plants.   Enjoy these diffuser recipes.

  With all this free time, I've been cleaning too.  I'm so grateful for having Thieves cleaner in my home. One bottle for EVERYTHING!    I wanted to share some recipes to use your thieves cleaner in so many ways!   I am a purist though.  I use thieves cleaner 2 capfuls in a quart spray bottle filled with water.  Does it all!   Simple or specialized. You choose!  A pure, clean home is the result of it all.   #ditchandswitch


I also wanted to share this months promotion because it's all things clean!!   And a Thieves glass bottle too!  This month they are even offering a 400 pv level too.  Along with this promo, Anyone who places over 100 pv order will be entered to win a random gift from my oily stash! There will be 10 lucky winners!!!!!    I'm excited, are you?   Essential Rewards Order or Shop one time .   When you check out the shop, check out the New and Featured Tab!!    They released some amazing new products!!   Volumizing and a lengthening mascara!  A new hand soap, Luscious Lemon!   I can't wait to get my hands on that, no pun intended.  And a line of exotic teas all with the Seed to Seal promise!  I'm super excited to try the tea collection.  It comes with a customized YL tea steeping glass mug. Swooooon.     AND, I almost forgot, there are some special oils in the VO too! Sacred Angel, 15ml Valor and  15 ml White Angelica are available too! Stock up!
Such a great time to be in this lifestyle of wellness using plants instead of the alternative.   I feel confident that my home is safe, clean, and has fresh air inside!   I have been blessed to walk this path of wellness and having a transformed body and home.  I can't imagine where I'd be if I didn't make the transition 5 years ago.  I Can't Imagine!!!    Not only has my health improved and my son's is amazing, but I've been able to build a sustainable business all while being able to be home, where I'm needed. It provides a way to work a business from home at my pace. You can go gung ho or ho hum. You choose the level of freedom you want.  Here's the income disclosure statement since I talked about income.  Income Disclosure  If you're even slightly interested in the business side of YL, reach out to me or your enroller and we can help you get all the tools you need to be successful.  We have a business growth group for newbies coming up May 1. If you want the deets, send me a text. 352-427-2497 .   

I wanted to send a virtual hug to all of you out there and a sincere thank you for supporting your health, and small business at the same time.  You are valued and I want you to know you are supported in any way necessary.  Have a blessed week!
