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.

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

10390510_10201938235366539_4940354088537344708_n

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!

None that I know of!

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.

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

IMG_5328

IMG_5329

IMG_5332

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!

At Home Spa Treatment

 

IMG_4390

IMG_4391

These days with school and the farm I find it hard to get my

“Me Time.”

With my limited free time, I am having to find ways to still be able to enjoy my spa treatments.

I will openly admit that I am a Pinterest Junky and I have to be very careful about the amount of time I spend scrolling through thousands upon thousands of health and beauty pins.

I once called Facebook the “Black Hole” for time management,

but now it is Pinterest for me. ;)

My only problem with Pinterest is that I “Pin” something and then I cannot remember where I “Pinned” it.

I am sure, I am Not Alone with this!

With that said, I have “pinned” many different “Spa Treatment” things all over the place, but where I could not tell you without going on a 2 or 3 hour search through all of my pins.

However, I did find something that I was able to remember the ingredients (3 things I have in my home at all times!)

And I was able to make it without having

to find the pin with great success!

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.

IMG_4388IMG_4386

IMG_4387

2 Tablespoons Virgin Coconut Oil

 IMG_4384

2 Tablespoons Baking Soda

IMG_4385

2 Drops Essential Oil

( I use Frankincense, but Lavender, Helichrysum,

and Geranium are also wonderful for our skin)

 IMG_4387

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 treatments

and can be used in the shower with great ease.

 IMG_4389

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 1/3 to 1/2 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.

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

It truly is simply amazing!

Here is what Wikipedia says about Microdermabrasion:

“Microdermabrasion may be performed to help diminish the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation, and photo-damage, as well as diminish fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and shallow acne scars. A further benefit of microdermabrasion is enhanced skin penetration by other skin creams and serums. Removing dead skin (startum corneum of the epidermis) will aid in the penetration of skin care products and medications by up to 10-50%. The controlled skin exfoliation afforded by microdermabrasion will afford make-up and self-tanning products to go on much more smoothly.”

Here is a little information on the benefits of using

Frankincense on our skin.

Ancient peoples quickly learned the value

of frankincense in skin care.

The Egyptians made rejuvenating face masks with it, and Ovid, the Roman poet, noted in his book on skin care (Medicamina Faciei) that frankincense was excellent for toilet purposes.

Frankincense continues to be an impressive skin care ingredient.

While often ignored in modern formularies, it is astringent, slightly anti-inflammatory, and has incredible ability to

rejuvenate skin and eradicate wrinkles.

Its antioxidant properties and cell regeneration abilities lead to smoother, more youthful skin.

It tones and lifts skin to increase firmness and minimize pores, which is why the Egyptians used it in facial masks.

Excellent for acne care because of its antiseptic properties.

One of the more impressive benefits of Frankincense in skin care is its ability to prevent and fade scars.

It has been reported to reduce the appearance of discoloration and redness due to blemishes, irritation, and even stretch marks. 

Here is a little info on why I ONLY use Young Living Essential Oils.

When I was new to essential oils, something that I learned really quickly was that there is a BIG(really important) difference between the types of Essential Oils.

For all I knew, oils were oils, and even though I knew about lavender scented products in the grocery store – I had no idea about the possibilities of transforming my health, naturally, with Essential Oils.

Let me explain, all Young Living Essentials Oils are

Therapeutic grade and Earth Kosher-Certified.

That means care has been given to every single drop, to ensure that the medicinal properties have been retained.

There are 4 Grades of Essential Oils:

Grade A oils are pure therapeutic quality and are usually made from organically grown plants distilled at the proper temperatures using steam distillation.

Grade B oils are food grade; they may contain synthetics, pesticides, fertilizers, extenders, or carrier oils.

Grade C oils are perfume grade and may contain the same type of adulterating chemicals as food grade oils.

They usually contain solvents which are used to gain a higher yield of oil per harvest. Solvents are normally cancerous.

Floral Water is a byproduct of the distillation process, a very high quality if it comes from a Grade A distillation process.

Accordingly it is of low quality if it comes from poor quality raw materials and or poor distillation processes.

It is usually found in skin and hair products.

A WORD ABOUT PURITY

Don’t be fooled!

Young Living’s oils are therapeutic and medicinal.

They are derived directly from the plant – not in a laboratory – and they are never extended or adulterated with chemicals.

Don’t think that you can buy less expensive

essential oils and get the same results.

ADULTERATED OILS AND THEIR DANGERS

Today much of the lavender oil sold in America is the hybrid called lavandin, which is cut with chemicals to improve the fragrance.

Then solvents are added and it is sold in the

United States as lavender oil.

Most consumers don’t know the difference, and are happy to buy it for $3 to $10 per half ounce in health food stores, beauty salons, grocery and department stores, and through mail order.

Some people wonder why they do not get the benefit they expected and conclude that essential oils do not have much value. Most likely, they purchased either a synthetic or adulterated oils.

Adulterated and mislabeled essential oils present

dangers for consumers.

One woman who had heard of the ability of lavender oil to heal burns used “lavender oil” purchased from a local health food store when she spilled boiling water on her arm.

But the pain intensified and the burn worsened, so she later complained that lavender oil was worthless for healing burns.

When her “lavender” oil was analyzed, it was found to be lavandin, the hybrid lavender that is chemically very different.

Adulterated oils that are cut with synthetic extenders can cause rashes, burning, and skin irritations.

Solvents can all cause allergic reactions,

besides being devoid of any therapeutic effects.

Even so-called “nature identical” essential oils (structured essential oils that have been chemically duplicated using

5 to 15 of the essential oil’s primary chemical compounds in synthetic form) can produce unwanted side effects or toxicities.

Isolated compounds may be toxic;

however pure essential oils, in most cases, are not.

This is because natural essential oils contain hundreds of different compounds, some of which balance

and counteract each other’s effects.

 Quality does matter — and your health is worth it.
