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





Your Mindset is the Key


Have you ever wondered why some people are successful and others aren't? There is a reason for it. Our mindset will help us achieve what we want in life. A positive mindset allows us to get through difficult times and achieve our goals.

Our mindset is the impetus that drives our actions

Our mindset is the impetus that drives our actions. It's also the life we lead!
In other words, if you have a positive and healthy mindset, then it will be reflected in your everyday living and vice versa. You can't change your life without changing your mindset first!

Let go of negative thoughts

Negative thoughts are harmful to your health. They can cause stress, depression, anxiety and anger. Negative thoughts can even lead to fear or jealousy. Resentment is also a negative emotion that often comes from the false belief that we do not have enough or are not as good as others who do.

Meditation opens our minds to the higher power

Meditation is a way to focus your mind. It's a way to connect with the higher power inside of you. Meditation is also a way for you to become more aware of yourself and the world around you, as well as nature in general.

Being generous and compassionate with others helps our own well-being

  • "It's not just about the money, it's giving back," says Bobbi. "When we give, we get so much more back in return."
  • This is especially true when you're able to help someone who really needs it. For example: If a friend asks for advice on how to deal with their abusive boyfriend, you could say something as simple as: "I think you should leave him." Then your friend will be grateful for your advice and likely feel better about making changes in their life. In effect, by helping them out of an unhealthy situation, you give yourself peace of mind as well!
  • Now imagine doing this on a massive scale—for example, through charity work or political activism—and getting similar results across the entire community! The amount of joy that would come from helping everyone around us live happier lives would be exponentially greater than any amount we could ever achieve by ourselves alone!

A well rested body and mind are essential to success

Sleep is a funny thing. We all know that we need it to function, but most of us don’t think about it in the same way we think about food or water. Sleep is life-sustaining and while some people are able to get by on less than others, nobody can live without sleep for an extended period of time.
Sleep is essential for our health, our happiness, and our success at work and at home. Here are just some of the benefits:
  • A well rested body and mind are essential to success
  • Sleep helps us form memories
  • When we sleep our brains continue consolidating memories from the day into long term storage which makes them easier to access later on when needed (such as when taking a test). According to research conducted by Dr Sara Mednick at UC Irvine School Of Medicine , students who took naps before their tests had better results than students who did not take naps before their tests!  The same research showed that even after six months these students maintained higher grades than those who didn't nap before exams!  This shows how important good quality sleep really is - if you don't get enough then your brain won’t be working at 100% capacity either during waking hours or when you try catching up on lost sleep later on so make sure that each night your mind gets plenty restful hours between its “offline” moments where no one else can access what's stored there ;)

Practice gratitude for all that we have in this world.

Gratitude is the attitude of being thankful for what one has. It is a way of thinking and feeling that helps build a sense of contentment, satisfaction and fulfillment. Gratitude makes people feel more positive about their lives. It gives them something to be happy about.
It’s important to show our appreciation for the good things in life because it keeps us focused on what is important, improves our mental health and creates happiness. When we focus on negative things like money problems or relationship issues they tend to get bigger while focusing on the positives can help reduce stress and anxiety levels by reducing negative emotions such as anger or frustration which can lead to depression if left unchecked over time because you cannot control everything in your life so it's better off trying instead making yourself miserable all day long worrying about something out there that could happen but never does so why waste energy?

By keeping a positive mindset, it allows us to live a more fulfilling life

  • By keeping a positive mindset, it allows us to live a more fulfilling life. When we are positive, we can do more. We are more likely to achieve our goals and succeed in life. We are also more likely to be happy and healthy as well as generous with others.
  • The opposite is true when we have a negative mindset. A negative attitude will not allow us to do what we want in life or accomplish any of our dreams because everything seems like such an uphill battle with no way out.

Conclusion

In conclusion, our mindset is one of the most powerful tools we have at our disposal. It enables us to make the right choices and decisions when faced with difficult situations. The better we are able to control our thoughts and emotions, the less likely we will be susceptible to negative influences that may otherwise hold us back from achieving success in life.

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.

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.

Your beliefs and the importance of them

Your beliefs and the importance of them
Your beliefs are so much more powerful than you’ve been lead to believe.   When you start becoming aware of the things you believe in, with your words and thoughts, you can start to change them. 

Don’t let it overwhelm you. Just start becoming aware of the words you speak after the words “I believe” or “I think”.  Then ask yourself:  Is it something that’s positive or happy? If not, that’s something to look at and ask yourself  if that’s going to get you the results you really desire.  It’s not until we truly start to change the thoughts we focus on and the words that we speak that our life improves drastically.  

The only hard part is starting.  Just challenge yourself to become more aware of the words you speak. Just try it.  Let me know what you found out!

Brrr from Florida!










 Hey there and happy February.  It's so exciting to start a fresh month with a fresh perspective.

January was a month for the books! So much good happened in my life and yet so much change. I'm grateful for it all!   January was a reminder that dark times do and will pass. Always.  Just keep moving forward.   Life is good.  Soo good.  ❤️     Spring is upon us, I mean it's closer than last month.   I'm super excited for all things to turn green and become alive again, but for now, we will be grateful for the present.    And today, it's gonna be a beach day.  Yep, for the last week, it's been unseasonably cold here in Florida (i.e. hoodies and shoes). We even had a deep freeze at 27degrees!!!! GAAAAAA!     Who loves the cold?   I'm sure some do.  Some find it invigorating.  Some find it wonderful.  and then there's me.  On the opposite side of the spectrum.  It chills me to the bone and makes every single muscle tense up 🥶 . And that's below 70 degrees. (seriously).  Enough on my rant about the cold 🥶 , and on to the good stuff!    Check out all the cool stuff and such below!   And check out my giveaway at the end ❤️ (because you’re amazing).

Also, I gave my website a makeover! It was long overdue and is still a work in progress.   I'm open to any ideas on the content you would like to see on it!   Check it out here!  Reply to this email if you have any input you would like to share.  I appreciate you. 

Now on to the good stuff ❤️
