Fall Diffuser Blends and a Flash Sale!

🍁🌻🍂 4 years ago, I purchased one of these with a skeptical mindset and an eye roll. Despite my social and travel fears and very unhealthy lifestyle, I was grateful for my good health. But I definitely took my wellness (only minor complaints and inconveniences) for granted.

WHY:

When my family medical history drastically changed, God answered one of my prayers in the form of a friend sharing Young Living with me and that introduction sparked the beginning of making healthier choices. I’m still a work in progress but I am definitely taking better care of myself, my family and my home from the inside out.

When my order arrived and it truly was a choice that opened the door to better decisions, education and a healthier lifestyle. I am forever grateful that a friend shared with me and now I can’t help but want to share that experience with you! It’s too good not to share and as uncomfortable as it is for me to share sometimes, I’d feel worse if I didn’t! My experience changed the course of our habits and if you’re ready to get started, this premium starter kit is a great way to dip your toe!

It was just the jump start we needed in our home to raise awareness when it comes to the toxins we allow through the door and opened our eyes to finally stop procrastinating making healthier decisions and what we put in and on our bodies and to take a close look at the ingredients in our products.

A Clean Home is a Beautiful Home

Featured

One thing that I can’t stress enough when it comes to creating a beautiful home is that it begins with providing a safe environment and one way that I lessen the chemical footprint in our home is with the products we use. A clean home is a happier healthier home and we’re able to unwind and relax, right? We can breathe easy! Unless we’re creating chemical clouds and films. That’s no good!

I want to mention I share these products because they’re my favorite and if you use my link below, I will make a small commission and welcome you into our circle of friends for support and education ~ I look forward to getting to know you better!!! But I’m simply passionate about raising awareness so while I’d be honored to hook you up, just take a look and find a way to give them a try – through my link or from someone you know. I want to wrap my arms around you with a big welcoming hug to Young Living products either way! 

I’m all about a Healthy Home!

The Power of Thieves…

Thieves-Header

Did you know? Young Living’s proprietary Thieves® essential oil blend was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated and wore a special aromatic combination of clove, rosemary, vinegar, and other botanicals that they believed provided protection while they were stealing. French authorities recognized that there was such value in this mixture that upon the thieves’ capture, they received a more merciful punishment on condition that they divulge the ingredients in their secret formula. 

The-Power-of-Thieves

Crafted in the spirit of that legendary combination, Young Living’s one-of-a-kind Thieves essential oil blend can be found in all the Thieves products. Featuring the powerful essential oils of Lemon, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary, Thieves imparts a spicy, welcoming aroma everywhere it’s used. And those ingredients smells amazing! Good-bye harsh cleaners that make breathing a challenge!

With the benefits of Thieves oil, including cleaning power and an irresistibly spicy scent, Young Living offers it as an essential oil blend and as an important ingredient in a full range of home cleaning and personal care products, from dish soap to toothpaste. Possibly our most versatile and beloved blend, Thieves products replace harsh chemicals with pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils and other naturally derived ingredients.

Keeping a clean house doesn’t have to mean using toxic chemicals. 

I can do all of the upgrades and cosmetic changes and I can fill my home with beautiful decorative accessories but when it comes to the basics and cleaning, toxic free living is a must for creating a comfortable, healthy, beautiful home for my family. And this is my favorite line of products. 

Toxic-Free-Living

A clean home is a beautiful home.

It just takes small steps to ditch and switch from what I used to use to products with non toxic ingredients. The Thieves collection from Young Living has been a lifesaver. Here are some of my must-have supplies.

Thieves collection

Cleaning favorites: 

We love Thieves Household Cleaner for ALL of the surfaces in our home from floors to countertops to stainless steel appliances including our zero radius kitchen sink to upholstery (it’s recommended to always perform a spot test), windows and mirrors (no streaking!) and bathrooms, yardsale finds and the baby’s toys. I love that it’s in concentrate forms. Snag a few dollar store spray bottles. We have a ratio for every day use and one mixed up for heavy degreasing. 

 Thieves-Household-Cleaner

Who knew you could have a hand soap addiction? Back in the day I’d hit the sales and stock up never realizing that the ingredients in those “botanical” scents were chemicals and not the real thing! Yikes! I love the lather and scent of this Thieves Foaming Hand Soap. Gentle but effective! There’s even savings on the refill! 

 Thieves-Hand-Soap

This is another good one. Oh my gosh! Nobody likes dirty fruit and vegetables. Don’t you just love fresh veggies from the garden and shopping the farmer’s markets this time of year? Have you caught any of the videos circling social media or YouTube about how filthy they can be? ::shiver:: I LOVE a good harvest! But please bathe those beauties before eating! 

Thieves-Veggie-Soak-Spray

This is another big one for us. We’ve always used unscented detergents when it comes to laundry since one of us gets itchy. lol Sensitive skin calls for products without the synthetic fragrances. Thieves Laundry Soap is all we use now. I love that it’s a concentrate and with an energy efficient machine, I personally only use half the recommended measurement and our clothes are clean! That means this little bottle packs a powerful punch and lasts! 

Thieves-Laundry-Soap

DIY Laundry Boost

Okay, so I may be a bit of a germ-o-phobe when it comes to touching public door handles, menus, highchairs, shopping carts…you name it, I’m not wanting to touch it! Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier is always always in my purse. And if you’re with me, I’ll share a squirt with you too! It’s not drying like the ones I used to carry and it has a refreshing peppermint scent! I share the love and everyone always raves about it. I also like having the large bottle with the pump for picnic tables and gatherings. So handy!

Thieves-Bar-Soap-Hand-Santizer

Oh! And that bar soap? So soft with a creamy lather. Every one of the bar soaps from Young Living feel good on my skin!

Another for ‘on the go’? Thieves wipes! There’s a fabulous DIY recipe floating around as well and I love making those up too, especially in place of the tub of toxic wipes I used to use daily. The spray is also great to have on hand. Public restrooms can be so…so nasty!

Thieves-Spray-Wipes

More treasures:

Yes! You will find each and every one in our home. A clean home doesn’t stop at cleanliness. Clean ingredients. If they’re touching your skin or being inhaled, your products need them!

Thieves-Dishwasher-Dish-Soap Thieves-Toothpaste Thieves-Floss-Mouthwash Thieves-Cough-Drops

^^^ Just supplied my dad with a supply of the cough drops. His words…”NOW THAT’s a cough drop!”. Those and the lozenges are powerful!!!…great to have on hand for airports, etc. where  you never know what’s floating around in the air. They’re strong and so good!

Thieves-Lozenges-Mints

So that’s a little about what you’ll find in our supply cabinets, the key to our clean home!

Even if you’re not a clean freak or if you’re not sure where to start when it comes to taking a step towards a chemical free home, and especially if you are, have you looked at the ingredients in your products? Have you reviewed them on the Think Dirty or EWG app to see where the ingredients fall on the scale for toxins? 

How to get started:

How do you swap out old and chemical based for new and plant based, new and non toxic? This Thieves Starter Kit is the best way to dive in! Young Living makes it easy for you! A collection of Thieves infused products to get you started!

Top Essential Oils for DIY lovers

Featured

Hello fellow DIY lovers!!! 

With the studio renovation in progress (follow #helloredreno), I’ve never been so grateful for the power of essential oils! As a DIY enthusiast, I always have one project or another going on and as a DIY blogger, the process from start to finish takes a little longer. Know what I mean? I ALWAYS ALWAYS have my essential oils within reach! Why would it even matter? Well, here are some of my favorite must have essential oils when it comes DIY.

#helloredreno

Peppermint Vitality – energize! Add a drop to morning coffee or a cold glass of water (be prepared – it’s powerful). It’s gonna wake you up! essential oils @diyshowoff

Diffuse for an energizing scent and to enhance concentration…that tip “measure once, cut twice”? It’s so easy to work on auto-pilot and make mistakes. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I need a poke to bring me back to mental clarity and alertness. 

peppermint essential oil #diy Peppermint is also cooling. I like to add a couple of drops to a 2 oz. spray bottle. Spritz the back of my neck when working in the heat or feeling overheated. It’s so refreshing. Store it in the fridge. A must have for working outdoors in the summer! 

DIY Cooling Mist

Keep calm & cool off! DIY cooling spray @diyshowoff

Paint fumes? I always opt for a low or no VOC but the smell of paint can be brutal. Add 10-15 drops or so of Citrus Fresh to a gallon of paint to help neutralize the strong odor.

citrus fresh essential oils #diy

Carpet freshener: I like to mix 5-10 drops in a cup of baking soda to create a DIY carpet freshener. Sprinkle before bed, vacuum in the a.m. LOVE it! (Purification or Citrus Fresh). 

Speaking of fresh. Choose a scent you love (lavender would work too!) and freshen up the mattress!

#DIY essential oils

Lavender: Life can be crazy and busy. Sometime my brain has trouble turning off at the end of the day when there’s so much going on. Lavender in a relaxing bath, on my feet and temples.  I like to keep a DIY linen mist spray bottle on the night stand. 

Young Living essential oils @diyshowoff

Lemon – cleaning power! Sticky residue? A drop of lemon oil will dissolve the sticky mess like magic! 

lemon essential oils #diy

DiGize – When we’re working on a DIY big project, meal time is usually on the go or last priority which means we’re grabbing something quick and it’s not always a healthy choice. DiGize is my best friend and I’m never without it! NEVER! I either apply topically around my belly button or for faster relief, I will add a drop to water (1 oz – shot glass size), hold my nose and ‘down the hatch’. Instant results! 

essential oils @diyshowoff

PanAway + Copaiba – after a long day, DIY can be quite the work out. Vibrations from power tools = stiff arms. I’ll usually add a drop of PanAway to a squirt of V6 (carrier oil) and just rub it in as needed. Soooo soothing! Tip: Add a drop of Copaiba to magnify! 

Young Living essential oils @diyshowoff essential oils @diyshowoff

 

Stress Away – Dealing with complicated project details, timelines, budgets, things not working out as planned? “Stress Aways” says it all. They should sell it by the gallon. Bathe in it! Sprinkle some on yourself. Douse your spouse. Whatever it takes. This smells amazing too…a little like vacation to me. You need it! 

Young Living essential oils @diyshowoff essential oils @diyshowoff

Clean up: Thieves Household Cleaner is the best clean cleaner out there, in my opinion. This cleaning concentrate has no harsh chemicals and packs a powerful punch of cleanup and your lungs will thank you!

Incorporating essential oil products into your gifts will not only lift up the women in your life, but hundreds of families and small business owners will be supported as well. Let’s celebrate the women in your life with something special and let’s infuse it with Young Living essential oils to take your gift to the next level. 

DIFFUSER JEWELRY

gift giving for her #mothersday #giftideas

If you’re feeling a little stumped on what to get the special women in your life, jewelry is always a WIN. Diffuser jewelry, on the other hand, is a WinWin. Pair that diffuser jewelry with a bottle of essential oil and you have just STOLEN HER HEART! 

Let’s break down why diffuser jewelry can be a perfect gift for any special occasion:
1) Diffuser Jewelry is a wearable item/gift that is also sentimental, especially when you can put on your FAVORITE scent. 

2) Diffuser jewelry is timeless.

3) Diffuser Jewelry is appropriate for people of all ages. 

4) Diffuser jewelry is suitable as a gift for any occasion.

5) Diffuser jewelry can suit any personality.

6) Diffuser jewelry is good for all body types and skin tones.

7) Diffuser jewelry is a great way to apply an oil and have it last for hours and even the entire day. 

8) Diffuser jewelry makes it easy to wear oils that may make your skin sensitive to light when applied directly. For example, citrus oils, when applied topically, make your skin extra sensitive to sunlight and you should avoid exposing that area to the direct sun for 12-24 hours after application.

As you can see, it doesn’t matter who the person is, how well you know them, or what the special occasion is. Diffuser jewelry is an easy, yet perfect gift to give.

Now that we have covered that, I want to stress that giving diffuser jewelry takes your gift up about ten notches from just regular plain ol’ jewelry.

ADD AN OIL

gift giving for her #mothersday #giftideas
Gift her an entire bottle of her FAVORITE oil or a few samples that are perfect for her lifestyle. With one drop of oil on her jewelry she can stay uplifted, confident, energized, and happy all day long.  

FAVORITE DIFFUSER JEWELRY SHOPS

One of my favorite shops for diffuser pendants is my daughter’s shop, The Lunar Fae. Evangeline’s wire wrapped gifts are beautiful and timeless. You can visit herEtsy shop website here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheLunarFae

And Sara from The Courageous Charm has some sweet options too. You can visit her Etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheCourageousCharm

gift giving for her #mothersday #giftideas

FAVORITE OIL SUGGESTIONS

Perfect all time favorite oils to gift to your special lady with her diffuser jewelry are:

Orange & Tangerine – Calming in nature with a beautiful citrus scent.

Grapefruit – Uplifting to the spirit. 

Citrus Fresh – Brings joy to children.

Joy – This floral scent brings joy to the heart. 

Christmas Spirit – Great any time of year and brings on feelings of happiness.

Bergamot – Turns grief to joy.

If you’re new to oiling and don’t have a favorite diffuser jewelry shop YET, share if you’re an earrings, necklace, or bracelet kind of gal. 

DIY PERFUME

Did you know perfume can be detrimental to your health? The term “fragrance” on labels can be a combination of over 300 harmful chemicals that the company doesn’t have to disclose. This is often why people get headaches when they smell synthetic perfume. It is better to play it safe and create your own perfume with natural and effective essential oils that you KNOW are safe. 

Not only are these perfumes safe, but their aroma therapy can take you from feeling down and out to happy and confident in a matter of seconds. 

Here are some of my favorite recipes.

Fill with alcohol when using a spray bottle. Fill with V6 carrier oil if using a roll-on bottle. 

***** Here are some options to make your own perfume *****

Adjust amount of individual oils based on preferred scent. 

*****

Bon Vivant – “Somebody who loves life.”

In a 10 ml bottle – 5 drops Joy, 5 Geranium, 10 Tangerine.

BATH SOAK

Bath soaks are an easy and useful gift. If someone doesn’t have a bathtub they can use this as a foot soak.

SOOTHING SCRUBS

I know you see this DIY all the time but that is because it’s SOOO good. 

Body scrubs make your skin look refreshed and rejuvenated by removing dead skin cells. Exfoliation also helps moisturize as it allows for the easy absorption of a skin moisturizer into your now healthy skin. Be sure to avoid applying too much pressure when using your scrub. Use a body scrub a few times a week. 

ENERGIZING BODY SCRUB

1 cup granulated sugar
1-2 Dry OOLA tea bags – “Energy: Peppermint Rush Organic Black Tea”
¼-½ cup Jojoba Oil Pure
15 drops Orange Essential Oil
3 drops Cypress (optional)
1/4 – 1 tsp beet juice (For pink coloring – optional)

Mix the ingredients in a cute mason jar, tie a ribbon around the top, print off a nice recipe note card and gift it to someone special. 

OOLA tea can be found on Amazon or through the OOLA website (affiliate link) https://amzn.to/2IRgrJV

One thing I love about OOLA is that for every bag of tea that is purchased, the company GIVES one meal to a child in need.

BATH BOMBS

gift giving for her #mothersday #giftideas

Made with Lavender oil and Stress Away essential oil, our new essential oil bath bombs are a fun, fizzy way to unwind. We’ve used two of our most popular calming essential oils to create these relaxing bath bombs and filled them with nourishing ingredients and no unwanted additives.

Lavender essential oil—renowned for its soothing and calming aroma—makes the Lavender Calming Bath Bomb perfect for unwinding after a long day, while the Stress Relaxing Bath Bomb is a special treat thanks to the inviting, vanilla-lime scent of Stress Away oil.

These natural bath bombs are made without colorants, synthetic preservatives, parabens, or animal-derived ingredients, making them some of the best bath bombs you can get your hands on! Instead of artificial ingredients and harsh chemicals, we’ve made these vegan bath bombs with a mineral-rich formula and skin-loving ingredients, such as coconut oil and sweet almond oil. That means they’re not only fun and relaxing—they also leave skin soft, smooth, and moisturized.

Curious about the essential oils in these products? Check out the Lavender® and Stress-Away® product pages for more information on Lavender essential oil uses and Stress Away essential oil uses.

DIYShowOff Fab and over 40 Favorite: Savvy Minerals MakeUp

“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.” ~Coco Chanel

A little detour from DIY home improvement and decorating today as I share a little about one of my new favorite things!  It’s a tad long but very informative and if you wear makeup, please take a minute to scroll through! 

fab and over 40 favorite makeup

“26 seconds after exposure, chemicals are found in measurable amounts in the human body. The average woman applies 300 chemicals to her body a day – 80 before breakfast.”

I still hardly recognize my new round, fuller…mature face in selfies! lol! But hey, I am loving the new Savvy Minerals makeup collection! 

 

Our skin is our largest organ and what we put on it matters, including makeup! All of those chemicals over time are going to catch up with us. Time to ditch the toxins in your makeup bag and get your game on because this was Made. For. You!

I’m wearing:

Warm 2 foundation
I Do Believe You’re Blushing blush
Eyeshadow: Inspired and Residual
Jet Setter eyeliner and Determined Eyeshadow (brows)
Lipstick: Daydream
Lipgloss: Embrace

what are savvy minerals

As I work to rid the chemicals and toxins from my home, one area that I kept putting off was my makeup bag and I knew the facts: Skin is my body’s largest organ. The stats: the average woman applies 300 chemicals to her skin per day, 80 before breakfast. Yikes! But man, I’m the type to not leave the house without makeup. I’m just not that confident in my “natural” beauty. It feels more “natural: scary to all the people to me.

Last summer I attended the Young Living convention and got to see the Savvy Minerals makeup line first hand. I ordered a few pieces at a time and despite my initial hesitation at applying mineral makeup, I have grown to love (no… LOVE in capital letters!) my Savvy Minerals makeup collection. 

Now, I am (ahem) over 40 with imperfect skin, occasional breakouts (darn you, wacky hormones!), dark circles (thanks thin skin gene) and a few sun spots. Not to mention I’m now looking at a few wrinkles as well. I really didn’t think mineral (powder) makeup was for me. It sounded awfully drying and cake-y! Right? Well, I was wrong! 

It’s been about 8 months now and I have to tell you, I wake up and before I head downstairs, I brush my teeth and apply my makeup. It feels good! I did a quick video on my routine. It takes me about 10 minutes from start to finish.

There was a little bit of a learning curve, a little adjustment to go from hiding behind a thick chemical mask of makeup to a pretty natural non toxic application that feels like I’m wearing nothing but I’m SO pleased this this stuff! It’s not difficult! It’s just different! It’s not air brushed/photoshopped/fake looking. It’s real and natural and I don’t know – you really have to experience it to understand. But if you’ve been looking for a makeup without the toxic ingredients, if you have sensitive skin, if you’re embracing a chemical free lifestyle and making healthier choices (and even if none of that applies to you) – THEN Savvy Minerals is worth a shot because what we apply to our skin is absorbed and ingredients DO matter.

Happy to know: Savvy Minerals are not tested on animals. 

NO animal testing! mineral makeup

And ladies, just taking this baby step with me makes me feel like we’re changing the world! Let’s do this! Doesn’t it make you so angry that there are even ALLOWED to be harmful ingredients in products we use and apply to our bodies?! It should!

Savvy Minerals are free from harsh toxins, nano particles, paraben, gluten, fillers, talc and so much more! Wellness never looked so good!

Here’s a little more info about the Savvy Minerals makeup collection:

What IS in Savvy Minerals makeup?

Ingredients like: Kaolin clay, jojoba oil, mica, aloe, pure essential oils, aspen bark extract, arrow root powder, sweet almond oil, beeswax, sunflower oil, vitamin E. mineral makeup ingredients

Young Living not only chose not to put the common “yuck” ingredients inside our makeup, they chose to put the GOOD stuff in there so we can actually have benefits to wearing Savvy Minerals! Check out some of these benefits! No wonder several people have reported calmer, smoother, less irritated skin after wearing Savvy Minerals for a few days! mineral makeup ingredients

Want to hear a cool fact about Aspen Bark? Check this out! Not only does Aspen Bark have skin softening properties but it is a natural preservative allowing us to use it instead of those nasty parabens!

mineral makeup ingredients

Lip Gloss is so trendy right now. Let’s talk about a few things – Did you know that the brighter the color and the longer the wear, the more toxins may be in the formula? And what about those lip glosses that are slick and oily feeling? You can attribute that to the petrochemicals. What?! We lick our lips, eat our food, and sip our drinks all while wearing the stuff. Why would I ever apply anything but the cleanest, more pure ingredients to my MOUTH? Savvy Minerals is made with natural ingredients that you can feel good about licking!

These lip glosses also contain pure peppermint essential oil which gives you a fun little tingle. Wear these alone or layered over your favorite Savvy Mineral lipstick.

What exactly is misting spray? You can see from these benefits that your skin will crave this stuff and you’ll get a better coverage and longer wear from your Savvy Minerals Makeup.

And now you can actually get the Savvy Minerals premium starter kit – an entire collection for just $150! It includes:

  • 1 foundation
  • 1 foundation brush
  • 1 blush
  • 3 eye shadows – Eye shadows are one of the most fun tools in your makeup bag. Savvy Minerals offers a couple of matte as well as shimmery choices for your eyes. Unlike other brands, the shimmery colors are very forgiving on mature skin (ahem). You must give them a try! Apply a little shadow for a natural look or build the color for a more dramatic look, utilize the misting spray for a bolder look. 
  • 1 misting spray
  • 1 5 ml lavender essential oil – supports all things healthy skin (and it’s relaxing and calming too!)
  • 1 lipgloss!

Isn’t that an amazing deal?! Of course you also get:

  • the wholesale membership which means you have lifetime access to wholesale prices with no further obligations. No yearly fees, etc. No need to cancel anything, no automatic charges to your credit card. No products you didn’t order showing up at your doorstep. NO obligations to sell. I think it’s just like my membership to Sam’s Club but lifetime instead of yearly. Both give me access to shop! That’s it. 
  • but…Your girlfriends are going to want in on this secret as well, so when you are a member, you have the option (OPTIONAL) to have them get Savvy Minerals using YOUR member# as enroller/sponsor! Again, you do NOT have to sell. Sharing is optional.

Are you warm or cool?

If you are undecided if you are Warm or Cool, here are some helpful hints from Royal Crown Diamond April Pointer:

1. Check Your Veins — Push your sleeves up and look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. Are they blue or green? If they look more blue, you likely have cool undertones. If the veins look greenish, you’re warm.
2. The Jewelry Trick — Think about whether you look better in silver or gold jewelry Typically, ladies with cool undertones look better in silver and platinum metals, and warm-toned women look better in gold.
3. The Neutral Test — Think about what neutral shades flatter you best. Does your skin, eyes, and face look better in bright white and black hues, or ivory, off-whites, and brown/tan shades? The first means you’re probably cool-toned, and the latter, warm.
4. Eye and Hair Color — Your natural eye and hair colors can help figure out your coloring. Customarily, cool people have eyes that are blue, gray, or green and have blond, brown, or black hair with blue, silver, violet and ash undertones. Conversely, warm-toned women usually have brown, amber, or hazel eyes with strawberry blond, red, brown, or black hair. Their hair tends to have gold, red, orange, or yellow undertones.
5. The Sun’s Effects — When you’re out in the sun, does your skin turn a golden-brown, or does it burn and turn pink first? If you fit into the first category, you’re warm-toned, while cool tones tend to burn.

Still not sure? Here are some more tips from Kathi Glaze Williams:
If you know your seasonal colors, then this may help you.
Basically, there are light and dark cools and light and dark warms. Light and dark cools are summer and winters.
Winters are dark cools and tend to have rich and intense hair and eye colors and look great in bolder shades like black and red.
Summers are light cools and look best in pastel shades like rose, periwinkle and sage. Your coloring tends to be more delicate.
Autumns are dark warms and look beautiful in the fall colors of moss, rust and terracotta. Think about leaves and spices.
Springs are light warms (ME!) Best colors are ones that match our eyes but we love to wear turquoise, watermelon and salmon.

One more tip! Gold is warm and Silver is cool. If you have a piece of fabric, like a shawl, wrap yourself in it and see which one makes you look better. Which color evens out your skin tones and make your eyes stand out?

Do you know what tone you are?

I have a darker sort of olive complexion so I’m ‘warm’.
