Birthday Bash

Hi DIYShowOff friends! Oh dear blog friends, I’m so blessed by your friendship and so happy you’re here. Thank you for your encouragement and support! 

Birthday Bash:

I love that you’re here. Our mutual interest in DIY has brought us together and I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you on a more personal level. I love our collaborations, our stories of putting so much love, so much of ourselves into creating  a beautiful home.

If you know me by now, you know that not only do I love being creative and crafty with DIY projects, I’m passionate about wellness and a chemical free home so as I celebrate my last year before hitting a big birthday milestone in 2020, I wanted to share some fun birthday incentives with my favorite blog friends. 

Savvy Minerals make up

Giving back: 

It’s my birthday month! My birthday wish is to give back in a big way. That’s the plan! For March, when you purchase a Premium Starter Kit using enroller/sponsor #1836762 at YoungLiving.com, I’ll be donating 25% to providing product gifts for some special recipients! I’d love to gift the Thieves Disinfecting (non toxic) Spray to cancer patients in our area! Thieves is SO amazing and smells good too!

Thieves spray

6 (SIX!!!!) close family members diagnosed with cancer in the past 6 years! That’s 6 too many! Sharing about chemical free products, essential oils with no side effects and making healthier choices may only be a super small imprint on those I love, their families and the world – but it’s one positive step in the right direction!

I appreciate your shares and referrals too! Thank you so much for helping me!

Gift of Wellness: 

Think oils aren’t for you because you’re not a hippie? Not crunchy? Or that there’s no way they can actually work like the “crazy oil people” say they can? See, that’s where you’ve got it wrong. Sooooo wrong. All you need is an open mind and a willingness to try.

It’s my goal for every one of my friends and family to have essential oils in their home so they have options to live above the wellness line and non toxic choices for aches and pains, immune system support along with support for other body systems too – you need these oils in your life!

diyshowoff

You guys! It’s not about sales! I don’t care where you get your Young Living products from – reach out to your closest bestie who loves the Young Living lifestyle, link arms and get off the fence!

Celebrating a Healthier, Happier Me!

Time to get a little more personal! lol Because three years ago, two amazing blog friends shared something life-changing with me during a fun blog retreat (I’m ready for another trip, girls!). If you don’t know, my blogging career began 10 years ago at a time when we bought this old fixer upper farmhouse, a journal of our DIY projects, the before and after results and encouraging others to ‘show off’ their handwork, creativity and DIY. Yay!

Thieves all the things! Roeshel @diyshowoff #essentialoils

 

BUT it was also a time when my mind decided to go through something where working outside of the home really wasn’t an option anymore. And going out in public was an ordeal and took a lot of courage. Anyway, I did leave the house on occasion and I really had to force myself to step outside of my comfort zone. So much that even for this blogger’s retreat trip, while everyone else was flying into the same popular airport then meeting up and all taking two sponsored cars to the beach home; I paid more to fly into a closer airport and hailed a cab. Ridiculous, right? But if you suffer from something similar, you understand. The fact that I was even there in the first place was HUGE but I still had to deal with my quirks and apologize for my weird embarrassing high maintenance ways. Thankfully, most of the issue is “in my head” because that group of amazing friends were so nonjudgmental and accepting. Isn’t that the best? True friendship!

Anna Maria Island blogger retreat

So while everyone was piling in the cars and heading out to dinner, I apologized that I “wasn’t feeling well” and would be staying behind at the beach house because well, occasional anxiety induced (TMI alert!) digestive issues. If it had only been sweaty palms and a racing heart, I might have put on a brave face and tried. Okay, no I wouldn’t have. I missed out on a lot of things because of my fear and issues. 

beth, roeshel, carrie

Well, I have to tell you…the biggest thanks EVER goes to my amazing friends, Beth from UnSkinny Boppy and Carrie from Making Lemonade blog for sharing about essential oils. it’s a day that really was the starting point of my decision to make healthier choices. If they hadn’t shared, I shudder to think of where my unhealthy lifestyle would have landed me or how my fears would have held me back. 

I am forever grateful! Trying that essential oil, experiencing fast benefits that enabled me to be more active at the retreat is something I will never forget. When I got home, I immediately ordered the Premium Starter Kit and that began my journey to a healthier me. Now I’m still learning every day but my eyes are open to how horribly bad I was treating my body and that all of the DIY and creativity in the would wouldn’t make my beautiful home…safe. All of those toxic chemicals really are contributing factors to poor health. A beautiful home truly starts with creating a safe environment.

If someone would have told me three years ago that I’d ditch my Yankee Candles, Bath & Body Works, my Versace perfume, my fake lavender laundry regimen; that I’d quit smoking (yea, that’s a biggy – I was an ashamed closet/outdoor smoker), begin exercising and eat cleaner; I would have laughed out loud and probably coughed up a lung doing so. :/ 

 

It didn’t happen overnight. I’m still working to take better care of this ::mumble::-something-year-old body but you guys, it was EXACTLY what I needed to take those first few baby steps, something I’d been procrastinating. It’s a decision I will never regret.

Check out how you can join me in taking the first steps to creating a healthier lifestyle with Young Living Essential Oils at diyshowoff.com

And my dear friend, I really want the same from you. So much so – and it doesn’t have to come from me (although of course I’d be honored to welcome you to our amazing circle of oily friends).  If you’ve been on the fence or holding off or rolling your eyes at that friend who is over-the-top passionate about their essential oils – connect with him or her asap and open yourself up to learning and experiencing even just a little but a good fair try to see those amazing health benefits for yourself. If you don’t have that friend, consider me…I’m VERY passionate about them and really want you to take a baby step towards a healthier, happier you. 

I jumped in with both feet and started swapping out chemicals in my home and changing my lifestyle to one that was more proactive and wellness-based. I am no longer afraid to leave the house. And with a mother and sister diagnosed with breast cancer one year apart with no genetic link; it’s evident that our environment and what we consume is a contributing factor. 

I absolutely was not looking for this type of career (who ever is?! No way! No thank you very much!) but when I fell in love with the products and forced myself to step outside of my comfort zone to host a class at home, I got a check from Young Living and then learned more about this generous world leading company, I realized I could leave a legacy (You guys! …leave a legacy and business to my daughters and grandson) — simply by sharing what I love just like I share favorite restaurants, clothing and music, and helping others in the process as well as live a healthier lifestyle myself and create a safer environment for the people I love (looking at that sweet baby boy’s face, I told myself that I wanted to be around to see him grow up to be an amazing man and I wanted to give him the things I couldn’t provide for my girls), I made the commitment to learn and share with others.

Aaro and nanny

I told myself that “hey…what do I have to lose? I’ll give it a few years and really stick with it. Really really … even when it’s hard or discouraging.” But most days? It’s so rewarding. And I’m so blessed by so many amazing friendships and a huge supportive community so that even if it feels overwhelming, I have the direction, advice and guidance I need from rock star business leaders to even doctors and nurses on our team giving this decision even more credibility. I’m surprised that I find it less demanding too. 

blogging encouragement

So far, in 3 years’ time, I’ve achieved the awesome rank of SILVER with Young Living! guess what? Only 0.2% actually reach this leadership level in the entire company, and the average SILVER leader is blessed with a paycheck of around $2000/ month!!! Yes, you read that right and the average Silver leader works 18 hours a week, just part time hours. I also earned a free trip to a Young Living farm! How exciting is that? I will continue to share and earn and help others to make healthier choices. And work really hard to help those on my team reach those levels of success too – I am surrounded by integrity and inspiration every day (you guys know who you are! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!!).

Do you have 18 hours a week to change your life and the lives of others? Then we need to talk!

Essential Oil Infused Honey Gift Ideas

Handmade holiday gifts are the best, aren’t they?! Just knowing that someone put in so much time, effort and love into creating a gift gives it a special touch. 

handmade holiday @diyshowoff

I especially love a ‘useful’ gift, not to mention I really want those I love using non toxic products. One of my favorite things about my essential oils is the ability to feel better when everyone is feeling “yuck” and this Thieves tea recipe works so well to support a healthy immune system. It’s now our must have, go-to – especially at this time of year. I want my friends and family to experience the same benefits.

Tips & Suggestions: I only recommend Young Living brand essential oils and products. I invite you to learn more and to get started here. 🙂

  • I have a friend who is a massage therapist but you can hire one to do 10 min. mini massages (hand, foot or neck and shoulders). Allow the massage therapist to bring business cards to distribute and provide the massage oil. (Suggestions: Relaxation, OrthoSport, OrthoEase or V-6 with Peace & Calming or Lavender, etc.)
  • Create a Facebook event page, post a graphic a day or every other day leading to the event. Send a reminder to guests in a personal private message a day or two before the event date. 
  • Host a short & sweet Essential Oils 101 class.
  • Have incentives for joining or bringing a guest handy.
  • Diffuse a calming/relaxing/uplifting essential oil (Suggestions: Lemon+Lavender+Peppermint, Peace & Calming, Stress Away, Citrus Fresh, Grapefruit+Bergamot, Lavender+YlangYlang).
  • Supplies: pretty plates, napkins, glass bottles and straws.
  • Optional: a sugar scrub or bath salt make & take. See recipes here DIY skin nourishing lavender & ylang ylang essential oil infused sugar scrub for maintaining healthy skin @diyshowoff
  • Serve light essential oil infused refreshments (ideas: ice water bar with citrus essential oils, wine punch (shown above) or wine, essential oil infused chocolate – melt chocolate, add a few drops of essential oil and spoon/pour into a silicone mold. Remove and display or wrap in a baggy and tie with a pretty ribbon for use as a party favor. Or get fancy with essential oil infused chocolate cups filled with chocolate mousse. Yum! essential oil infused chocolate mousse @diyshowoff
  • Charge a small fee to help cover massage/etc. costs.
  • Limit space (5-12 guests).
  • Require an rsvp.
