Whether we are ready or not, Back to School is upon us!

Back to school is fun and can be stressful for children going to school for the first time or starting a new school.

With stress comes a reduced immune system, which can lead to sickness.

Thankfully we have a wonderful all natural option to ward off germs that can lead to illness.

In honor of Back to School, we are running a special book promotion and book contest.

We would like to invite you to join our Young Living Family before July 31, 2014 and enter our contest for a chance to win a 394 page Essential Oil Reference Guide.

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!

Our team of wellness warriors is growing each month.

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.

Lavender Air Freshener!

IMG_2368

Life can be Stinky!

Thankfully, we have natural ways to freshen the air!

For years we used the “Air Fresheners” that you shake on the carpet and vacuum up without any thought of WHAT the product was made from. Since moving to our farm house almost 3 years ago, we have been trying to “clean up” our chemical use and use more all natural products. I have to say that the thought of changing products we had been using for years was mentally hard, but not difficult. The more labels I read of the products we had been using for many years, the more I knew we had to make a change for the better. We get our water from a well on our property and we have a septic system for the treatment of our waste water. Knowing how these systems work, I knew I had to do something to reduce the amount of chemicals in our home and daily life. About 2 years ago we began making our own laundry soap instead of buying big containers from the big box stores. Making our own products has now turned into a passion to see what we can make and stop purchasing from the big box stores. Recently I thought I would try to make a new air freshener for our guest bathroom and it turned out GREAT! The best thing about it is that it can be made different ways  and it can be used different ways! Not bad for a simple 5 minute project that is 100% chemical free! :)

Lavender Air Freshener Recipe

1/4 to 1/2 Cup of baking soda

1/4 to 1/2 Cup of dried lavender

10 to 15 Drops of Lavender Essential Oil

1 Glass container or mason jar

Mix baking soda and dried lavender together, add lavender essential oil and mix well. Place into a glass container or mason jar with holes (I found mine at Target in the dollar bin) in the lid. Place in desired area and enjoy! Add 5 to 10 drops of lavender essential oil every couple of weeks as needed.

Lavender Carpet Freshener Recipe

1 Cup of baking soda

10 Drops of Lavender Essential Oil

1 Glass container or mason jar

Mix baking soda and lavender essential oil together and allow to blend together overnight before using. Sprinkle on carpet and vacuum as you would other carpet fresheners.

April ~ Lavender & It’s Many Uses

Wow!  It is already April! Where have the first 3 months of 2014 gone? Things around Green Eggs N Glam have been a little more than busy the last few months and we keep getting busier. I began my second year of nursing school in March and somehow I thought only having my medical-surgical class  this quarter that I was going to have less stress. Boy, was I ever Rong! (inside joke of the spelling of wrong! Check back for more on why I use the spelling Rong!) ;)

oil-bottle-large-lavender

Lavender essential oil has been a lifesaver around our farm house the last year! We will NEVER be out of Lavender around here. As many of you know I am in nursing school and my husband is a firefighter-paramedic for The City of Sacramento. We live on 4.5 acres that need lots of work and we are always doing something in the yard or in the shop. I use lavender daily for many different things. Lately, I have been using it in my homemade deodorant every morning and in my diffuser at night to help me sleep through the night. We also use it on scraps, cuts, and burns.

Last summer my amazing hubby purchased a golf cart that needed work to use on the property and get from the shop to the house or barn faster. (boys and their toys) He is always working on things in the shop when he is home and I never question what he is doing since I am normally in the house with my nose in a medical book of some sort. Well, I guess I should have questioned the golf cart and some of its safety issues. I now know why exhaust systems should have covers on them so you cannot touch the hot exhaust pipe! Needless to say the golf cart DID NOT have the cover on it like it should over the exhaust pipe and my hubby burnt his hand badly on it. Not Once, But Twice! And in the SAME PLACE! The first burn was small and we applied lavender essential oil on it right away when he burned it. But, the second burn a week later was MUCH WORSE! Luckily he knew what oil to grab when he burnt his hand for the second time since I was on my way home from school the day he burnt his hand. We applied Lavender essential oil on his burn about 5 or 6 times the day he burnt his hand. Over the next couple of days we continued to apply lavender on the burn and the blister that popped up the night of the burn. After about 4 days of applying lavender on the burn and keeping it covered and clean, the blister started to release the fluid. We continued to apply lavender to the burn area over the next few days and after about 9 days we could not tell the skin was burned. After  9 months later you would NEVER know he burned his hand! :) Now I wish I would have taken pictures of the burn and after it healed, but we didn’t think about it when it happened. Hopefully, there will not be a next time to take a picture, but if there ever is, I will make sure we get some pictures.

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is the most versatile of all essential oils…often known as the ‘Swiss-army knife of oils’ it’s benefits often considered limitless.

Homemade Laundry Detergent

IMG_5324

Not long after moving to our farm house, I began searching for cleaning products that would not damage our ground water.

We are on a well and septic system, so making sure that we do not add toxic chemicals to our water is important.

As an avid Pinterest user,

I came across many different websites for recipes.

Not sure how well DIY laundry detergent would work,

I was a little leery about trying it.

However, once I made it and used it the first time,

 I was pleasantly surprised!

I have been making it for almost 2 years

and I have had very good results with.

Since I started using essential oils the beginning of this year,

 I started adding a few drops of

different oils to the batch when I make it.

I am extremely happy with the cost savings of DIY detergent as well!

1 box of Borax $3.99

1 Box of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda $3.99

2 Bars of Fels-Naptha Soap $1.49

10 drops of your favorite essential oil under $1.00

Total Price $10.96 before tax!

Not to shabby for ingredients that will make  more than 2 batches of laundry detergent that will last over 2 months for 2 people.

IMG_5333

DIY Laundry Detergent Recipe

1 Cup of Borax

1 Cup of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda

1 Bar of Fels-Naptha Soap – grated

10 drops of your favorite essential oil

 I use Thieves or Purification Blends

Place all ingredients except for essential oil in a blender or ninja type blender with lid and pulse until incorporated

Once incorporated, transfer to storage container

and add essential oil drops

Allow several hours or overnight for essential oils to

incorporate into detergent before use.

Note – I have started adding the essential oil drops to the washing soda a day or two prior to making detergent to avoid having to wait for the oils to incorporate into mixture

I use 1/8 of a cup per load of laundry

This recipe makes enough detergent for 2 people

for over a months worth of laundry!

IMG_5326

There you have it!

Homemade Powdered Laundry Detergent that is MUCH cheaper than pre made detergent and Much safer for the environment!

I hope you will give this a try!

Let me know if you have any questions or if you would like more information on the essential oils that I use.

Peace, Love, & Hugs!
