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 ❤️

February is often looked at as the month of love, with a major focus on Valentine’s Day. While it can be fun to celebrate this romanticized day, it’s also a great opportunity to practice some self-care! Here are some ways you can put yourself in the spotlight this month…

Our mind is so amazing!


Fact: 
Your brain 🧠 uses thoughts to compare, measure and describe
EVERYTHING
and nothing else.   
You can’t control the thousands of thoughts that pop in your head, but you can control which ones you focus on.   
Learn to acknowledge thoughts and let them float on by without giving them your full attention.  They’re only thoughts. Most of them aren’t even real or facts.   Why give them your attention?   ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ let them float on out just like they came in.    Don’t worry another one will roll in behind it, but you can do the same. And repeat.  It gets easier. It is so worth it. Peace of mind is invaluable.   ❤️ When we learn to take time in our daily life to silence the world around us and sit quietly in meditation, the rest of life becomes so much easier.   It only takes a few minutes a day to start this life changing habit.  I have found several amazing apps to learn to meditate.  A couple of my faves are Synctuition, and Balance.    Synctuition uses binaural beats to bring your mind on a journey and the Balance app teaches you how to meditate and practices using different tools in your meditation.    CALM the mind, and the body will follow.   
I hope this brought you some helpful info and if you want to chat about more ways to improve your wellbeing, comment below or reach out to me!
Blessings and love, 
Casey

Calm in the Storm

Calm in the Storm
Why is it when in our most stressful times we try to find solutions knowing good and full well we need to step back and breathe first.     I mean who’s experienced one thing going wrong setting off a chain reaction of more disasters?  Oh just me, ok 😂.  

My point in this is to learn to step back and breathe when stuff comes up.
Chaos:
You can’t see straight.
You can’t focus.
Your emotions are on high.  
Calm:
Solutions appear.
Focus is easy.
You’re at peace.

Let it settle.    Learn to be calm in the storm.   Yes, in the middle of the storm is calm(um, hurricanes 🌀).   Take the time to breathe. Take a time out. Walk away.    Then come back, clearer, calmer and much less likely to make a dumb decision you would’ve never made when calm.

Take a breath and check out these awesome deals today from Young Living! 30% off select holiday items!!!
And thieves cleaner too!! Whattt!!! 


Check out all the goodness and remember, you’re freaking amazing and loved beyond measure.  If you need anything, please reach out to me. Even if it’s just a listening ear.   

Blessings and light to you
Love,
Casey

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!

  • 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
  • 3/4 cup organic cane sugar
  • 15 drops Winter Nights essential oil blend
  • 10 drops Vanilla oleoresin
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.
Casey
