Essential Oils for Fun in the Summer Sun

Our high today is 91 with thunderstorms starting at 2:00 p.m and going all the way through the night!!! How HOT is it where you live??? What are you doing to beat the heat??? If you’re headed to the beach or the lake to celebrate the 4th of July weekend, you’ve probably packed sunscreen in your bag.  Why apply harmful chemicals that are found in store-bought sunscreens when you can make one that is actually good for you and your family!!! I was excited to find this recipe for sun protection in the Lemon Dropper files to share with you for Continue Reading →

#OolaYLChallenge Faith Young Living

Challenge 5: Faith Welcome to day five of the #OolaYLChallenge! Today we’re exploring the fifth “F” of Oola—Faith.  Although “having faith” means different things to each individual. In general, faith is rooted in gratitude, humility, and an understanding of your greater purpose in the world. With our lives today being so chaotic and stressful, it’s easy to lose faith.  We over-analyze and over-think every situation.  Our lives are crazy-busy and we have a hard time falling asleep because our minds won’t shut up!!!  We worry over every detail of the previous day, what is coming up the following day, and Continue Reading →

Oola YL Challenge: Love your body!!!

#OolaYLChallenge

Today is the first day of the 21-Day Oola YL Challenge!!! Challenge #1 was “Fitness”….but there’s a twist to the challenge that I wasn’t expecting.  I thought Oola YL was going to challenge me to do 10,000 steps today, or some other “get up and move” challenge. Instead today’s #OolaYLChallenge was to think of three things you love about your body. Whoa, whoa, WHOA!!!!  That’s a hard one!!!  It would be easier to get in 10,000 steps today!!! I see my friends who are always hitting the gym and getting their 10,000+ steps in, and I feel embarrassed because I Continue Reading →

Essential Oils vs. the Dark Side of the Perfume Industry

Essential Oil Perfumes

Perfumes can be both intoxicating and seductive.  Many perfumes evoke deep emotions or sweet memories. However, there is a dark side to the perfume industry to which you may not be aware.  Commercial perfume manufacturers are allowed to withhold information on their ingredients to protect trade secrets.  Many of the secret ingredients are potentially hazardous synthetic chemicals (mostly petrochemicals) that are known toxins and carcinogens. More than 95 percent of the chemicals in synthetic fragrances are derived from petrochemicals. These chemicals include: benzene derivatives, aldehydes, phthalates, and a slew of other known toxins that are capable of causing cancer, birth Continue Reading →

Have a Healthy Smile!

When I was researching for the Essential Oils 101 class that I teach for John A. Logan College, one of the subjects I wanted to present was about toxins in our personal hygiene products and how to find all-natural, non-toxic solutions. One of the shocking things I discovered was that there are particles of plastic added to my family’s favorite toothpaste.  Yes, little balls of plastic!!!  According to Crest, polyethylene plastic is in your toothpaste for decorative purposes only. That’s right, the only reason plastic is in there is because it looks cool. Personally, I think it is NOT COOL Continue Reading →
