Amazing Facial Scrub!

IMG_4391

Wow!

I am so happy to say that my At Home Spa Treatment blog post from last year has been amazing!

The original blog post has been pinned on Pinterest hundreds of times and it is the most viewed post on our blog!

I have been using this recipe for a little over a year now and my face has NEVER been Better!

No more breakouts or dry skin!

Yay Me!

So let me get on with the “How-To” of making an Amazing At Home Spa Treatment!

At Home Microdermabrasion!

Yes, I said that correctly Microdermabrasion!

You will need virgin coconut oil, baking soda, and pure essential oils.

See Simple ingredients! :)

I only use Young Living Essential Oils as they are Safe, Therapeutic Grade, Organic, and simply The Best oils we can use in or on our bodies.

The recipe can be doubled, tripled, or multiplied many times.

It is a simple 2:2:2 ratio of coconut oil, baking soda, and essential oil.

If you do multiply the recipe always remember increase

the essential oils to ensure the correct ratio.

2 Tablespoons Virgin Coconut Oil

IMG_4388

2 Tablespoons Baking Soda

IMG_4386

2 Drops Frankincense Essential Oil

oil-bottle-large-frankincense

( I use Frankincense, but Lavender, Helichrysum, and Geranium are also wonderful for our skin)

In a small bowl combine softened (not melted) Coconut Oil with Baking Soda into a paste, then add essential oils and mix throughly.

The recipe makes enough for 2 to 3 weeks of treatments and can be used in the shower with great ease.

That’s It!

Now you have just made your own at home

Microdermabrasion treatment!

Now, How to Use your homemade Microdermabrasion treatment.

Whether you are in the shower or in front of your sink, you will want to use this treatment on a wet face, not dry.

First wet you face with warm water, use a small amount of the mixture and begin to massage your entire face, throat, and décolleté with small, circular motions in the upwards direction.

You do not need to scrub the mixture, the baking soda will exfoliate for you without having to scrub.

I follow this treatment up with a homemade mixture of coconut oil and frankincense oil or my New Favorite Essential Beauty Serum!

This treatment is also great for rough elbows and dry hands and feet.

It truly is simply amazing!

Get Longer & Healthier Hair!

10173595_10201951836786566_8215826960032682275_n

Are you still using shampoo that contains Sulfates?

Did you know that sulfates are damaging to your skin and hair?

As I am detoxing my home from nasty chemicals, I started using Young Living shampoos and conditioners.

Little did I know what a difference making the switch from chemical hair care products to natural hair care products would make!

My hair has been growing like crazy!

I started using Young Living hair care products about 9 months ago and my hair has grown close to 6 inches in 9 months!

The thing that I love most about these products is that they are all natural!

Plant-based, safe, and environmentally responsible, Lavender Mint daily shampoo and conditioner is an invigorating cleansing blend and moisture blend suitable for all hair types.

5191121 5192121

Here are a couple of clips from other websites about sulfates and why they are bad for our hair:

“Sulfates are compounds derived from sulfuric acid which are found in most commercial shampoos. Companies add these harmful components so their products will create pretty suds when applied and lathered into your hair. Unfortunately, those same sulfates strip away vital natural oils that keep your hair healthy and strong. The result? Dry, brittle strands that appear dull and break easily. Most stylists today will tell you that a good sulfate-free shampoo is the first step to longer, healthier-looking hair.” Learn more Here

“Sulfates are a group of detergents or surfactants that are used in countless consumer goods today. The most commonly used sulfates are sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and sodium laureth sulfate (SLES). These corrosive cleaning agents started off as an industrial strength cleaning additive since they easily cut through heavily soiled surfaces.” Learn more Here

WOW!!!!

I am in shock and awe over the news of winning 2nd place in Young Living’s‪ #‎hashtag‬ competition for convention swag!

See the post here!

I mean really?

I WON????

If you would have asked me if I thought my hashtag of #KeepCalmAndOilOn would have won such an amazing contest, I would have said NO WAY!

In fact I did not give it much thought after I posted it on Jared’s Facebook post.

This week was another crazy busy week for school and I had LOTS of reading and studying to do for an exam.

But, thankfully something told me to check Facebook and there was MY name on Jared’s post announcing the winners of his contest!!!!

Boy am I glad I checked Facebook to see what was going on between studying!!!!

Not only was my #hashtag picked, but I won an Incredible prize package at convention!

Young Living has given me so much in the last 18 months and they keep giving!

I am so thankful to be a part of such an amazing company that has been in business 20 years this year and is growing by Thousands and Thousands of members each month!

What other 20 year old natural health company is growing by over 50,000 new members a month?

None that I know of!

And that is what sets Young Living Essential Oils apart!

We would love to have you on our team and help you #keepcalmandoilon with us!

To become a wholesale member you must first purchase a starter kit and the only requirement thereafter, is that you need to spend $50 a YEAR!

Think of how much money you can save by making over you medicine cabinet!

If you decide that essential oils are not for you or  you decide that you do not want to spend $50 within the year, you will simply drop off as a member.

Thats it!

There are no hidden charges or fees.

And as a wholesale member you now have the opportunity to sell product and enroll new members.

HOWEVER, if you are not interested in making it a business, you do not need to!

There is nothing that requires you to do so.

You can simply spend $50 a year and enjoy your discounted rate on products.

That’s as easy as having a Costco or Sams Club membership!

However, you do not have to pay a yearly fee!

We highly recommend purchasing the Premium Starter Kit.

This kit will give you the most for your money.

Be Willing To Be Uncomfortable!

10251930_10152145174593800_2080418433975789961_n

We all want Change, but are we all willing to be Uncomfortable?

1975206_10152355519512863_4941555637538411075_n

I was stuck in a dead end desk job in the auto business and was not living my life to the fullest at all.

I knew I need to do something drastic to make a change in my life for the better.

I went back to school at 37 to become an RN and I applied to my program the day after I turned 40.

As I was waiting to find out if I was 1 of 30 who got in, I found Young Living (YL) and joined.

The very next week after I joined YL I got the call I had been stressing over almost 6 months.

Hence, the reason I need YL’s Stress Away blend!

I was not looking at YL as a business, but the week after I started my RN program I got an email saying that I had a new member.

Fast forward 14 months after joining and I have helped 174 people with YL, I have started my second year of nursing school, and I am working on Silver in 6!

I not only embraced the uncomfortable step of nursing school at 40, but I did it with great pride in knowing that I can do anything I put my mind to.

If you are looking for change in your life and you are willing to be uncomfortable, I would love to help you lead a life of Wellness, Purpose, and Abundance!

For The Love Of Corned Beef

IMG_1984

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

As a special Thank you to our Blog and Facebook Fans, we are sharing our secret corned beef recipe! For years we have been asked how we make it and why it is so different than what they have had in the past. We have even won Non corned beef eaters over with our recipe! It is always so nice to hear people say “Wow! I never expected it to taste like this!” :)

IMG_1986

So what is our secret you might ask? Well, besides being Very Irish, our secret with it is we let the meat cook for hours and hours on high in the crock pot. NEVER EVER BOIL! Boiling corned beef is how it is normally cooked and it is why so many people do not care for it. :(

Making mouth watering Corned Beef is easy and it does not take very much to make it.

1 Crockpot

1 3 to 5 pound Corned Beef Brisket or Round with seasoning packet

1 to 2 pounds of Fresh Carrots

1 to 2 pounds of Red or Yukon Gold Potatoes

1 Head of Green Cabbage

1/2 to 1 cup of Brown Sugar

9 to 13 Hours of Cooking Time

If we are doing a big party and we need to lots, I will cook them overnight. If we are only doing 1, we put it in on high in the morning and let it cook for at least 8 hours if not 10 or 12. We add the veggies in about 1/2 through and let them cook. Once we take the meat out, we put it in a cast iron skillet and then drizzle some of the cooking water over the top. Next we put a layer of brown sugar on top and drizzle a little more cooking water and then another layer of brown sugar. We let it bake in the oven at 375 for about 30 minutes and baste it like you do a turkey with its juices every 10 minutes. Once the meat is taken out of the oven, place it on a serving platter and drizzle the brown sugar glaze over the top. Slice meat against the grain and serve with veggies and mustard or horseradish.

We hope you enjoy our recipe! Let us know if you have any questions!

Amazing Detox Bath

IMG_1188

There is something so soothing about a relaxing warm bath after a long day.

For years I was one who would take a bubble bath with a bubble bath product from a well known chain store that is famous for after holiday sales. I would stock up on yummy scented bath products thinking I was doing something good and relaxing for my body. Little did I know that the products I was soaking in was loaded with chemicals that are harmful for our skin. :(

Thankfully, I was able to crawl out of my bubble bliss and learn about the health benefits of taking a detox bath. Due to our environment, our bodies are not getting the proper amount of magnesium that we need. Our bodies NEED magnesium to survive, yet our soil is being depleted and the typical American diet severely lacks the amount we need.  I have been doing detox baths for about 3 years now and I am SO GLAD I started doing them. A little over a year ago I started using Young Living Essential Oils for other health reasons and I started adding them to my detox baths. I try to take a detox bath at least once a week, if not more. There are some weeks that I do not get to take one and I really miss it.  I use lavender essential oil most of the time, however, I change it up depending on my mood. If I really want to relax and I am going right to bed after a detox bath, I do a combo of Lavender and Peace & Calming essential oils.

Amazing Detox Bath Recipe

2 Cups of Epsom Salt

1/2 Cup of Baking Soda

10 Drops of Essential Oil

( I only use Therapeutic Grade Young Living Essential Oils)

1 Bathtub of Hot Water ( Not too hot, but not warm)

20 to 30 Minutes of Soaking Time

I like combine the epsom salts, baking soda, and essential oil together before adding to the water in the tub. By adding the essential oils to the epsom salts and baking soda, the oil absorbs into the salt mixture and does not float on the top of the water. As we all know oil and water do not mix, therefore, adding essential oils to the bath water will not be as beneficial as it could be. Once the tub is at your desired soaking level, sit down in and relax for 20 to 30 minutes. After you are finished soaking, drain the tub while sitting in the tub, allowing your body time to rest before getting out of the tub. If you are pressed for time or you do not have a bath tub, you can still enjoy the benefits of a detox bath by doing a foot bath and reducing the amount of products.

Detox Foot Bath Recipe

1 Cup of Epsom Salts

1/4 Cup of Baking Soda

5 Drops of Essential Oil

10 to 15 minutes of soaking time

The above recipes make a great gift for friends and family. I like to make up a few jars during the holidays and have them for just in case gifts. You never know when an unexpected guest will stop by during the holidays and bring a gift. ;)

The health benefits of soaking in epsom salts is quite amazing.

Improved heart and circulatory health, reducing irregular heartbeats, preventing hardening of the arteries, reducing blood clots and lowering blood pressure.

Improved ability for the body to use insulin, reducing the incidence or severity of diabetes.

Flushed toxins and heavy metals from the cells, easing muscle pain and helping the body to eliminate harmful substances.

Improved nerve function by electrolyte regulation.

Also, calcium is the main conductor for electrical current in the body, and magnesium is necessary to maintain proper calcium levels in the blood.

Relieved stress.

Excess adrenaline and stress are believed to drain magnesium, a natural stress reliever, from the body.

Magnesium is necessary for the body to bind adequate amounts of serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that creates a feeling of well being and relaxation.

Reduced inflammation to relieve pain and muscle cramps.

Improved oxygen use.

Improved absorption of nutrients.

Improved formation of joint proteins, brain tissue and mucin proteins.

Prevention or easing of migraine headaches.

Peace & Calming Essential Oil

Smells Amazing and Works Wonders! 

 peace_calmCR-1024x728

Peace and Calming Essential Oil is a very soothing blend and smells absolutely AMAZING! It is one of my top ten best oils, and it is a must have for me and my family.

I think you will find that children are also very drawn to this oil. I believe it’s the orange and tangerine oils combined.

This is a easy reference guide for Peace and Calming Essential Oil Blend. It will tell you how to use your oil blend and what to use it for. It will also provide you with some fun tips and testimonials!

Peace and Calming Essential Oil Blend™

What is in Peace and Calming Essential Oil Blend?

There are five different oils in Peace and Calming Blend. They are listed below along with a brief description of each oil.

• Ylang Ylang Essential Oil (Cananga odorata) increases relaxation; balances male and female energies. It also restores confidence and equilibrium.

• Patchouli Essential Oil (Pogostemon cablin) is strongly grounding and centering. Very high sesquiterpenes that stimulate the limbic center of the brain. It reestablishes mental and emotional equilibrium and energizes the mind.

• Tangerine Essential Oil (Citrus nobilis) contains esters and aldehydes that are sedating and calming, helping with anxiety and nervousness.

• Orange Essential Oil (Citrus sinensis) is elevating to the mind and body and brings joy and peace. A 1995 Mie University study documented the ability of citrus fragrances to combat depression and boost immunity.

• Blue Tansy Essential Oil (Tanacetum annuum) is anti-inflammatory and helps cleanse the liver and lymphatic system. Emotionally, it combats anger and negative emotions.

What are the Documented Uses for Peace and Calming Essential Oil? Insomnia, anxiety, depression, nervous system, and SO MUCH MORE!
