My Morning Routine with Young Living Essential Oils

Every Friday you can look forward to posts on recipes with essential oils, diffusing combinations, and information on individual oils.  I’m going to start with the oils in the Premium Starter Kit because that is the way that most people start their essential oils journey, and I want to give you the tools you need to know what to do with the oils you purchase.  Haven’t purchased your starter kit yet? I’d love to be the person who helps you learn all about essential oils and their great applications, just click here to get started.

So now that I have had my Premium Starter Kit from Young Living for over a year, how have essential oils been incorporated into my daily routine?  Since I have replaced many of the beauty products and cleaning products in my house with Young Living’s non-toxic, safe, essential-oil infused products, I’ll keep this post shorter by only going over my morning routine for now.Read More »

Our Little Life Hack #4: Healthy Popsicles & Avoiding Food Waste

I don’t know about you, but it seems as though on the weeks I’ve bought the 1 lb pack of strawberries, the pack is gone in a day or two.  Everyone wants strawberries! So on my next weekly grocery shopping trip, I buy the 2 lb pack of strawberries and I end up throwing away old, yucky strawberries by the end of the week because barely any were eaten.  It’s so difficult to guess whether this week will be a strawberry week or not.  By the way, this goes for lots of different fruits in my household, not just strawberries.  So what can I do to avoid wasting perfectly good produce that my kids are just “not in the mood for” this week?  Hello healthy popsicles!Read More »

Can I Grow That Here?

grow1The first lesson from the garden was to ask yourself, “What do I desire to grow?” Now, you need to honestly ask yourself, “Can I grow that here?” I mean truthfully, I would love to grow everything I eat. However, I know that is not possible and I don’t want to waste my time and energy in the garden. I want to be successful and my harvest abundant. The success of my garden depends upon me choosing the right plants for my planting zone. Therefore, I need to know what planting zone I live in. The US Department of Agriculture produces a map for gardeners that divides North America into 11 planting zones. Each zone is 10°F warmer (or colder) in an average winter than the adjacent zone. After a little research, I have learned that I live in zone 8B. Now, I look back at my list. I have two options. I can cross off anything that does not grow in this zone, or I can move to another zone. I don’t want to move, so I select plants that thrive in my zone. This decision has increased my chances for success.Read More »

What Do I Want to Grow?

Growing a garden begins long before you plant the first seed. It begins with a desire. I WANT to grow something. I may spend hours looking through seed catalogs and websites. I am drawn to the colorful glossy pictures, and make long lists of what I desire to grow. But, before I place my order, I need to ask myself a few questions. The answers to these questions will determine if I place an order for new seeds, use the seeds left over from last year, or give up before I begin? Most importantly, it will determine what and how much I will reap in the end.Read More »
