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 →

SAFE & Effective Foaming Hand Soap!!!

When I was researching for the “Non-Toxic Life & Home” segments of the “Essential Oils 101” class that I teach through John A. Logan College, I discovered the dangers of triclosan in hand soaps, toothpaste and other personal care products. It completely freaked me out!!!  I immediately threw out the anti-bacterial hand soaps, toothpastes and other products in our home and replaced them with all-natural products!!! I learned that as early as 1978, the FDA proposed a rule that would have prohibited triclosan (and other toxic chemicals) from being used in hand soaps because it was NOT SHOWN TO BE Continue Reading →

New Year’s Resolutions

New Year's Resolutions, Using Essential Oils to support your New Year's resolutions.

Let’s be honest, I’m having a lot of TROUBLE with my New Year’s resolution to get fit.  I signed up for the ‪#‎ONEChallenge‬, which is 1,000 miles in 2016!!!  What the heck was I thinking?!?!?!  I’ve NEVER been an athletically active person!!!  Couch potato is a much more accurate description!!! Right now I’m WAY behind on my daily goals, so if I’m going to meet my January goals I really have to get motivated during the last week of the month!!!  Actually, I’m diffusing “Motivation” right now….hoping it will help me get moving today!!! What were your New Year’s resolutions?   Continue Reading →

Back to School Essentials

Back to School with Young Living Essential Oils

I was out walking this morning and the neighborhood was sooooooo quiet. I got to thinking about how sorry I feel for kids nowadays. It’s still summer and they’re already back in school. Each year it seems like their school year is starting earlier and earlier.When I was young school didn’t start until after Labor Day. (Wow, when did I get old enough to start using the “When I was young…” phrase!!! Haha!!!) If your kids are back in school, there are a number of essential oils you can use to support them and keep them healthy.    

Why I LOVE being a Lemon Dropper!!!

Lemon Droppers, Brand New Twist, Young Living Essential Oils

Becoming a Lemon Dropper was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my life!!! Forget the fact that essential oils have dramatically improved our life both physically and emotionally. Being a member of this “tribe” has touched my soul in such an amazing way. “People. That’s what this business is about. Everything else, the health, the money, the rewards, the perks, the events, it’s all icing. The people are the core of the Lemon Droppers and they will always be.” ~~ Lindsay Moreno Lindsay Moreno is the founder of the Lemon Droppers. She is an AMAZING woman, a Continue Reading →

Here Comes Peter Cottontail

In addition to the celebrating the spiritual side of Easter Sunday, our family always has so much fun celebrating the joy of Easter with beloved traditions. Even though our girls are grown, they still love getting Easter baskets filled with dyed eggs, candy, chocolate Easter bunnies (with the ears bitten off of course! Haha!) and little gifts. We leave a plate of carrots out for the Easter Bunny and he always leaves the girls a note for them to read the next morning. I found this darling Bunny Box (Design #57771) from Snapdragon Snippets in the Silhouette Online Store and thought it Continue Reading →
