Ive been focusing on reducing toxins in my environment and it’s hard to eradicate them completely. So I’m concentrating on the ones I can control. The average woman puts over 150 chemicals on her skin every day from skin care, shampoos, soaps and cosmetics! Many contains hormone disrupters too! I’ve replaced my skincare with Verage which only contains essential oils, natural emollients and plant extracts without compromising on quality and results. As my skin ages I need more nourishment and I’m finding this works well for me without feeling heavy. I like that I’m working towards reducing toxic load- controlling the things I can.

Goodnight sun 🌞
I am so grateful for this beautiful world we live in. 🌏
My family and I do our best to minimalize the impact we have on our environment.
A couple of easy ways we do this is by reducing, reusing and recycling as many things as possible and by purchasing and using environmentally friendly products.
I am so proud to be part of a company that not only makes the highest quality products but who also manufacture all their products using wind power.............Oh and did I mention that all their packaging is made from recycled materials and free of toxins? ♻️✅😊

Have you ever wondered what does your floor disinfectant actually consists of? All the popular brands contain chemicals. Floor cleaners are made are such that they have strong and pungent ingredients. Most of these floor cleaners contain phthalates, which is known to have a connection with hormones. .
Our kids spend most of their time on the floor. Crawling, walking, running, playing, picking things from the floor and putting them straight into their mouths. This means, our floor needs to be safe for them. .
Our baby’s health is of at most importance, babies are prone to diseases, their skin and respiratory tracts are sensitive to any kind of chemicals, to keep your baby away from any kind of allergies and dust, we scrub the entire house with cleaners, but the fact is that we are causing more harm to our baby by spreading these chemically infused cleaners all over the floor.

WHY DO WE NEED GUT BACTERIA?
Bacteria has the reputation of causing unwanted infections, but certain strains of beneficial bacteria offer a number of health benefits.
Beneficial bacteria are called probiotics meaning “for life”. Probiotics can help with:
1. A strong immune system
80% of our immune cells live in our gut. An example of this is Goblet Cells, which line our intestinal tract. Probiotics help them to function at their best to provide immunity and fight antigens.
2. Improve skin health
The root cause of some skin concerns like eczema are actually gut problems, and can be improved by supplying a regular supply of good bacteria to your gut.
3. Aid in digestion
This is a no brainer. For our gut to do it’s job, it needs a healthy environment for certain digestion processes to occur. Probiotics provide this healthy environment.
When you are choosing probiotics, look for a brand that is clinically proven to survive the acidic environment of the stomach (e.g. Usana Probiotics) for the good bacteria to reach the gut alive.
Many brands promise billions of bacteria in a capsule or sachet but they are useless if the stomach acid kills them before they reach the gut.

So just bc we are a little extra hippie-oily, does not mean that the 3 of us feel 💯 all the time. Not at all! Now do I know that we are a lot less in distress/ill than we used to be before we used all the Young Living and had a crunchier lifestyle to support our wellness? Um duh.
I’m just super grateful that I have things I can use that are safe for Pipers age group. Example, a toddler cough you don’t have a lot of options for! Y’all know I don’t love reaching for medicine even if there were 😟
I know this will speak to my diy-ers (I think I made that up...🤷🏽♀️) since I made this Little concoction, but please know, most of these oils I regularly apply neat to her anyway, I just thought, “hey I bet I can put all the together and really pack a punch!”. The consistency turned out great, almost like a salve so it coats her chest and back and doesn’t go anywhere for a hot minute! And she is hilarious and every time I put it on her today she said “thank-you-ma” 🤣🤣🤣 .

Not sure what to diffuse with Juniper? Here’s an easy hack that will always work out:
Juniper + a citrus + a spice. You’re golden! I personally love Juniper with Clove and Grapefruit and Lemon (#negroni
blend!) but this little combo was lovely the other evening and I keep going back to it.
What do you love to diffuse with Juniper?
My babies 👦🏻👧🏻 both came home from their vacation with swimmers ear 🏊♀️👂 . I quickly whipped up a roller of a combination of lavender and melrose 🌿 and topped it off with some FCO. I had them roll it behind their ear and on their ear (not in). We have been rolling it on frequently throughout the day. You can also put a drop of each on a cotton ball and then put the cotton ball in your ear. Love having these oils on hand to help support what my kids need 😍.
Tonight is about the 5th time I’ve heard Canadian geese flying south, and I’ve seen a few leaves falling (I’d like to believe it was because of drought though). So sadly fall is coming, ready or not. Pictured are a few of my secrets to feeling good this fall.
🍁First up, Super C! Not only does it give you a big dose of Vitamin C for immune support, it is fortified with rutin, citrus bioflavonoids, and minerals to balance electrolytes and enhance the effectiveness and absorption of vitamin C. The essential oils that are added may also increase bioflavonoid activity. Yes please!
🍁Next is Thieves, this amazing essential oil blend I keep handy year round for immune support but with cold temps setting in I know it will help keep me feeling good.
🍁Raven, this is an amazing essential oil blend that really helps keep me breathing good and keeps everything open. I love using it in the shower and I always feel like I’m at a spa.
🍁Thieves Hand Purifier, need I say more? When others are below the wellness line, I reach for this.
🍁And last is the combo of Lemon, Peppermint, and Lavender essential oils. After living near oak trees for so many years, my body has had enough and I dread fall. These three oils diffused or the vitality oils in a capsule can really help me in the fall and spring!
Hope these tips help you feel good all fall and winter too! Next week I’ll bring you some back to school favorites!
But for now, enjoy the last few sweet days of summer!
What is your favorite thing to use or do to keep feeling good in the fall?

doTERRA is so much more than just oils! Here’s a prime example :: one of my favorite everyday products, OnGuard toothpaste! SO good! Whitening and fluoride free so the whole family can use it. This is just another example of a simple swap. No more toothpaste from the drugstore. I purchase this through my loyalty rewards and not only is it delivered straight to my doorstep, I earn points for free product! Win-win! 🙌🏼
Do you remember when you were young and had these big plans and dreams of these seemingly outrageous things? A famous musician, an author, an actor, a circus performer? Fast forward a few (or more) years and life has you so far away from those ideas you had and yet you still think about them. Why is that? What stops you from actually taking steps to achieve those dreams?
I'm sure someone along the way steered you towards a path of a much more ordinary life "because not everyone can achieve such great things" but my biggest thought is why did they get to chose who gets to be who?
Today my preschooler told me he wants to fly. I hope that I can remember to always encourage him to be the best of whatever he chooses to do with his life. Whether it be flying or building or engineering or writing or speaking.

DETOX GAME PLAN-
Here’s a great one by @marcinevin
When I first started my healthy living journey, I started with reducing toxins in my skin care and beauty essentials because of the strong link to breast cancer in my family. This was then followed by a healthy eating plan to further improve my health and the health of my family members. .
When you naturally detox; you have more energy, a boost in metabolism, help prevent disease and inflammation in your body and more!! .
Some of these are quite easy to do! Which way to naturally detox here can you easily add in to your daily routine? Which ones do you already do? I think it’s time to get out my dry brush again! 🤗
My youngest is living his best summer yet as a Jr Counselor at camp this summer. Using his talents to lead kids in activities while helping them learn about God’s love for them. What a guy! I am so thankful for the heart that kid has and how he uses it to show love to others. So I thought it would be a lot easier if he wasn’t sneezing every 2 seconds now that his allergies are in full force! 🤣 Mamma made him this little take along using an empty EO bottle with a roller top. Easy to apply all day long. And now he can just think about what he’s there to do! Being a steward for Jesus! (See recipe in other post)
The wait is over! 💫💐 New Whipped Body Butters are now available in the shop! 😍🤩 Made with shea, cocoa butter, and essential oils to keep skin moisturized throughout the day!

Aren't sure how to make some quick safe changes? Let's chat - I would love nothing more than to help you clean things up abit. 'Greenwashing' totally had me fooled before I started on this #betterbeautymovement
and I wish someone had told me sooner.
So here I am.. wanting to pay it forward 💙✌
We can CHOOSE to keep turning a blind eye and continue investing our hard earned money into the very things that are causing us harm; or we can CHOOSE to educate ourselves, take action, and put the health & wellness of ourselves and our families as a priority. Embracing a more natural lifestyle does not mean you have to give up everything you like. It simply means you are more mindful about your choices, what you put into, and what you put onto your body. It's actually quite rewarding. If you're not ready to go all the way, I encourage you to try a few things at a time. I get mine delivered right to my door! Transitions are evidence of growth. And if you're not growing, you're standing still. #saferbeauty #saferoptions #natural #toxinfree #toxinfreeliving #tryit #personalgrowth #onlineshopping #naturaloptions #shoppingonline #powerofchoice
I can't believe Harper starts Kindergarten in just over a week. How, oh how is this possible?! I spent this morning taking care of some last minute back to school stuff, including making both girls their immunity rollers, which we now call "Unicorn Magic" in our house. The girls use this roller blend every single day to stay strong and prevent sickness as much as we possibly can. It's a blend of Thieves, Lemon and Frankincense. Mamas it's a must for this back to school season. 📝📓🍎

“I know we can’t go back again to the world that we were living in, because we’re dreaming with our eyes wide open!” •
I wish I could tell you I was always this super positive, happy go lucky and inspirational woman, but that’s just not the way it is, or...was.
When I stumbled upon coaching, again, I was someone I hardly knew. I was super negative, lashing out at any and everyone, spent more time lounging on the couch wishing things would get done FOR me, and I was filled with all this hate toward others, my hubs included, that were living this life of pursuing their own dreams - a life I didn’t think I could ever have, at least not in the immediate future.
You see, there are those of us that, when we see a life raft floating toward us we grab hold of it with all our might. Then, there are those of us that let fears, worries, concerns, and a laundry list of excuses get in our way, and we let it float in past, or hover just outside of arm’s reach.
Coaching brought out the go-getter, the confident, and the passionate woman within me again. It became my life raft, my life’s purpose, and my reason to dream, and to dream BIG - with my eyes wide open to this bigger and better world that is out there!
I could go on all day about how this opportunity has changed me and so many others for the better. Instead, why don’t you come listen to us share our stories in our behind the scenes look next Tuesday, August 28! Just click the [link in bio] to request to join - no strings attached!
This weekend I took on the task of thoroughly cleaning under my stove top after MONTHS of putting it off #judgeyourselfnotme
I hate doing this because I typically use Easy Off and then have to clear all surrounding areas to the kitchen due to the strong smell. 👃🏾 🤢
But no longer!! I got this shine from a #toxinfree
cleaner. No masks were needed and no fear of the kids (or me) inhaling this product. 🚫😷 Next up was my trifling oven... I'll show those results later🤦🏽♀️
Changing our household cleaning items to #green
has been one of the BEST decisions we've made. .
Not to mention one of the cheapest 🤑

Modern scientific study of the influence of aromatherapy on emotion is confirming what people have known for centuries: the delicate and complex aromatic compounds of pure essential oils can be used effectively to help balance emotions and brighten moods. Do you have a favorite?
Melting makeup, nah I don’t think so, give this a try it works a treat! 🧖♀️ 60 ml water , 1/2 tbsp vegetable glycerin, and 6 drops frankincense and geranium, because I have normal, slightly oily sometimes skin and the odd Mom lines here and there. So I mix it in a glass spray bottle and once my paint is on, I spray it 12 inches away from my face 2-3 times and let it dry and I’m good to go, no more melting mascara under my eyes 👀 😁 📷 @younglivingeo
I know so many people who rely on Health insurance.
Not only is it becoming less affordable, most people who declare bankruptcy due to medical costs have insurance.
Also, check out the info I received in an email from @chriskresser
about how healthcare is failing us.
What would it mean to your life (and wallet) if you could count on yourself to keep you and those you love the most healthy?
