My son was sleeping over at a friend's house last night, and we woke up to a text this morning saying the mom was up all night vomiting!! 😳
With five kids in the house, illnesses take forever to cycle through so we aren't taking any chances! There's some major immune boosting going on around here today!! OnGuard is already being diffused, and we've applied our immune boosting blend to our feet! 😷
The mixture of dates, carrots, raisins and the cinnamon oil made these resemble carrot cake (but much healthier!) Note: I tried using coconut flour in these muffins but it was a little too dry. I recommend using whole wheat instead.
1-1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour*
3/4 cup Flaxseed Meal
3/4 cup Oat Bran Cereal
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp ground Cinnamon
1 drop cinnamon essential oil
1-1/2 cups Carrots finely shredded
1 banana mashed
2 Apple peeled & shredded
1/2 cup Raisins or dates
3/4 cup Milk
2 Eggs beaten
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Mix together flour, Bob’s Red Mill Flaxseed Meal, oat bran, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.
Stir in carrots, apples, raisins (if desired). Combine milk, beaten eggs, cinnamon oil and vanilla. Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients. Stir until ingredients are moistened and DO NOT OVER MIX.
Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes.
Store in fridge
Blue Cypress- Grown down under in Australia, this single is a part of some of our favorite blends like Australian Blue, Brain Power, and Breathe Again. You know the horrible gunk that's been everywhere this winter? I would definitely be adding this to your support routine. Just sayin'.
This may not look like much to most people… In fact, it might look like a messy living room! 😂😂 But to me it looks like a setting for the essential oil's 101 class I hosted online last night from the comfort of my home!
I got to give kisses & tuck my boys in and was able to eat, pump & make a phone call all while hosting a class meant to educate, empower and inspire others to take their health into their own hands and start their very own essential oil journey! 💜💧 I presented & shared my passions to over a hundred people without leaving my couch and in doing so - I get to bring home a full time income for my family that opens so many doors of possibility without taking away from the precious & priceless moments. 😍😍 Network marketing might have a bad rap to some people but I see it as the vehicle to making dreams come true all around the world. Find one that suits you - something you truly believe in, fit it into the nooks and crannies of your life, work hard and play even harder… And create the life you've always dreamed of! The days are simply too short to do something you don't love while missing out on the things you do!
So this Tuesday I got to experience cupping therapy for the first time! My low back has been giving me problems so I went in for a massage and had her use White Fir and Wintergreen to help soothe the aches and pains in my back. Then she added in the cupping therapy which helps with inflammation, pain, blood-flow, relaxation, and overall well-being!
I can honestly say I am now addicted! My back feels so much better from the combination of essential oils, massage, and cupping! It was not painful at all and actually felt very good!
If you haven't tried it yet, I encourage you to! If you are around the Cullman, AL area be sure to hit up @lisayers because she or the BEST!

If you would have told me 4 years ago that I would be using essential oils as a natural health option for my family I would have laughed at you. Why? Well my experience with oils before that was that they didn't do much except for occasionally smell nice but then I experienced doTERRA's oils- SO different in their smell, quality, and most of all their effectiveness. I was blown away at what a plant compound could do for my body and that they were SAFE for my child. These top ten oils are the ones I started with and often the ones I turn to for support the most!
🌿Lavender- all things calming and sleep
🌿Lemon- detox, energy, runny noses, mood boost
🌿Peppermint- head tension, digestion, respiratory support
🌿Melaleuca- first aid oil, congestion, skin impurities, ear pain
🌿Oregano- power immunity booster, respiratory support
🌿Frankincense- cellular support, pain, inflammation, anti aging
🌿Breathe- all things respiratory, enhances oxygen uptake
🌿On guard- immunity support, gets rid of unwanted germs
🌿Digestzen- digestive support, heartburn, bloating, tummy aches
🌿Deep blue- sore achy muscles, circulation, inflammation
You can see why these oils help with most of what comes up within my home, they are incredibly versatile! I don't know where I would be without them and because of that I feel pulled to share with the world what they can do and help every home have them! Now is a great time to join the essential oil movement and for the rest of this month I have some AMAZING deals on two kits that contain these top ten oils (and more)! DM for info on the two kits I'm offering featuring these oils. Plus I will give you tons of education so you will be able to incorporate these oils easily into your everyday routine 💕
📎BOX OF BIRTHING DREAMS! What an A-mazin collection of things I hadn't thought of☺️🙏🏼 This box is perfect for first time mums like me who never thought about putting lip balm and straws into my hospital bag! These ladies know their shit and have put together a box that has loads of info about your delivery and what to expect 🙌🏼 Thank you @the_mother_box ... I'm a little bit more exited about the pushing part now! 😄 -
Y L A N G Y L A N G ... along with bergamot, this is one of the oils I couldn't wait to try that came in my wellness box this month. I've added it to my facial toner because it smells like flowers and will do good things for my skin. ⠀
I apply it to my wrists and neck for an all natural perfume. It boosts and supports my heart health as well as helping my circulatory system. This oil is great at boosting my mood or for helping me to relax. ⠀
Ylang Ylang can help with PMS, boost libido and more. Add a couple drops along with some lavender or clary sage to a warm bath to ease discomfort on those days of the month that can be hard 😉. Or even add it to some coconut oil for a gentle massage on your abdomen and back. ⠀
I want happy hormones, don't you? ⠀
**VETIVER - MY THOUGHTS....**
I get asked about this oil ALL the time! I think it smells like dirt lol :) Yes it does!!! But it's an earthy, warm comforting dirt smell!! #whateverthatmeans#keepingitreal *But is an amazing oil to add to your collection!! After being on a plane with one of my leaders the other week who is scared of flying and watching her calm down after she applied vetiver to her wrists I have a new found respect for this oil even if I still think it's a bit smelly!!!! ♥♥♥ .
*It is a very popular choice for those that find it hard to get a restful sleep. It can go on the feet by itself diluted in a little carrier or you can mix it with lavender peace/serenity for a beautiful sleep blend. The combination of vetiver and lavender peace/serenity is also beautiful in the diffuser.
In fact the new lavender peace formula coming to Australia next month does have vetiver added to it and it smells amazing. But you can still add extra vetiver to it if you want an extra boost! .
* It can be incredibly calming and grounding especially for spirited children that are over stimulated and find it hard to settle the mind! Vetiver is also in our PEACE blend and I find that especially good when Jake, my son, is extra anxious or stressed about something and feel like I need something stronger than Balance.
P.S: I also call it the oil of patience because it is thick and takes forever to come out of the bottle so you need to be patient when using it!!. ♥♥

We started a 14 Day starter kit challenge in my Facebook essential oil group recently and I've decided to share the amazing info here on Instagram as well. I hope you all find this information useful. One new post on essential oils every day. Stay tuned.
14-DAY PSK CHALLENGE - DAY 1 - LAVENDER...
Lavender is one of the most commonly-used essential oils around the world.
Because the demand for lavender far exceeds the supply, Lavender essential oil is one of the most adulterated.
Young Living has 2,300 acres of lavender farmland, where we grow and distill, pure, therapeutic-grade Lavender essential oil.
It is the largest lavender farm in the world.
Lavender is often referred to as the “Swiss army knife” of essential oils for its wide variety of uses.
Lavender essential oil soothes cuts, scrapes, minor burns, insect bites, skin irritations, and dry or chapped skin.
It also calms the mind, relaxes the body and promotes a restful night of sleep.
TRY IT TODAY...
Put Lavender in your purse or pocket and take it with you wherever you go today. When you find yourself getting anxious, tense or stressed, place a drop of lavender in the palm of your hand, rub hands together making a few clockwise circles, then inhale slowly. Take 10 deep breaths in through your nose (be careful not to touch your eyes) and exhale through your mouth.

*** How Essential Oils can help cope with Grief. ***
The grief arising from bereavement is one of the most devastating, negative emotions a person has to deal with. It is a strong, overwhelming, emotional pain that will stay with you spiritually for a lifetime.
Aromatherapy can certainly play a part in helping to release the stress and tension of bereavement and keep the mind balanced during the period of intense sorrow. Essential oils will not take the pain away but they can help you to work through the pain and move on with your life, naturally soothe your mind and help relieve yourself from the adverse effects of grief and depression.
The number one oil I would recommend to help deal with grief is Rose. Rose is a great healing oil. It heals despair, soothes grief and shock, releases traumatic energy, and serves as a source of deep and comforting self-love. Blended with some of the “woody” oils, sandalwood or cedarwood, this blend can be used in your bath, in a massage oil, in a diffuser or oil burner, in a spray in your house or in a roller oil on your pulse points for when that overwhelming sense of loss rears its head.
Although feelings of loss and grief cannot be entirely removed, essential oils in aromatherapy will increase your mood and balance your emotions to help you deal with the issues and overcome the depression that accompanies grief.
So this happened today he other day! @itoviscanner so what is an itovi scanner? With just a simple scan, this pocket-sized tool will help you understand how your body responds to the products you use. Using scientific technology and a patented algorithm, iTOVi takes the guesswork out of the growing world of essential oils and supplements. I am beyond excited to get my scanner soon. #itovi#seeingisbelieving#gethealthy
