Project Diary #12 Christmas at the Studio

It’s Christmas as the studio! Since we can’t put life on hold, let’s ignore the unfinished projects and enjoy a festive look at the holiday cheer in a mostly finished space. A place where we share DIY home ideas and creating a beautiful home begins with a healthy environment.   wellness inspired living Christmas

Remember that Succulents & Spruce Christmas tree? It’s a beautiful focal point to the studio living room area. I love the colors and rustic nature vibe in this space.  Christmas tree - rustic   A grapevine star against a window in the daytime is hard to photograph but trust me, it makes for a perfect topper! christmas tree grapevine star topper And I love the pop of color from these coppery-orange ornaments.   christmas tree bulb  Gold glitter feathers! My favorite sparkle accent for this nature themed tree. rustic christmas tree gold glitter feather  There’s lots of extra leafy garlands to give it a fuller look too. Did you notice?  rustic christmas   And there’s Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oil in the diffuser ornament giving it a beautiful pine scent! When you can’t have fresh pine, this is a great option! Smells amazing! young living diffuser ornament   A fluffy comfy throw as a tree skirt makes me want to curl up under there to enjoy the starry-night glow! cow hide throw blanket tree skirt    Christmas decor  The mantel is all decorated for celebrating Happy Holidays!  Christmas fireplace  Isn’t it gorgeous? Those fairy lights in glass ornaments are my favorite tucked into lush pine forest garland is just so magical!

And the porch and stairs are on the ‘to-do’ list but a grapevine wreath with holly berries and red velvet bow with poinsettias greets our guests at the door. christmas entryway helloredreno  Oh! The first sneak peek! There is now vinyl decal lettering on the windows to share with our community what’s going on! Wellness Inspired Living is what it’s all about, creating a home that promotes a better you and a healthy home environment for your family. Well-being. You can learn more about my story and what that means to me HERE. wellness inspired living Butler PA Butler PA Wellness Inspired Living studio The entryway still needs painted (or maybe even a pretty wallpaper accent wall with a bench and decor – so many ideas!) but I used what I have on hand to give it a welcoming atmosphere.  christmas foyer   The studio is a place in our downtown where we gather for discussing living above the wellness line, to get together to support one another, for education and fun times. It’s also an available meeting space for small/home business//women in business.  welcome guests door prizes  My 4-year-old grandson took this next photo. I think he did a pretty good job! I love the antique door knob from a little one’s perspective.  Christmas doorknob   With lots of holiday events on the calendar, a “Selfies with Santa”//holiday photo backdrop and props is getting lots of use and laughs! So fun! Christmas photo backdrop selfies with Santa  Before the photo backdrop…this wall featured the quote scroll but was moved to the entryway. Aroma Freedom Technique happens in this room (although via video chat too) –  achieve your goals! xo  living room Christmas vignette helloredreno   Time for entertaining my friends!

Christmas hot cocoa station Mantel deer…did I mention I can’t get enough of GOLD lately. How about you?  gold reindeer Okay, friends! THIS IS THE BEST SNEAK PEEK….I am in LOVE with how the workshop area is coming along. This table gathers friends for DIY craft time, make & takes, wellness education, iTOVI scans and small parties! Those dark moody walls paired with the barn wood walls (not shown below) and that grid of 9 beautiful windows that sold me on this studio and tempt me to want to LIVE in this room! I’ll share more specific details in the upcoming before/after reveal but wow, right? So so pretty! Or maybe you need to see the before to appreciate it like I do. You’ll have to stop back soon. ::wink wink:: helloredreno workshop   This Desert Mist diffuser is amazing! I absolutely love the candle flicker mode and diffusing settings. You can get it HERE. You need it! You’ll LOVE it! I don’t miss burning candles one bit. That’s saying a lot! I was a brand name candle junkie! I love that I can easily and frequently change up the scent, mood, health benefits…just take a look at more info. I’m so grateful a friend shared with me and feel compelled to pass it on. You control what you bring into your home and a diffuser and essential oils was that first baby step towards a healthier me, family and home.  Premium Starter Kit Desert Mist Diffuser   Another photo from a 4-year-old’s perspective.

Next up:

The workshop transformation. It’s my favorite! 

The building has so much historical charm. It’s about one block from our town’s Main Street. The bus stop is literally steps away. There’s a gorgeous Butler, PA Bed & Breakfast across the street called Suite Retreat (how cute is that?!) and an antique shop nearby. There are breweries, the YMCA, shops, restaurants, salons, florists, candy/coffee shop, holiday parades and festivals within walking distance. So fun! If renovation from blah to ahhhhh is your thing, stay tuned!

So subscribe and be reminded of updates as the renovations progress! I’ll share before and after photos, projects underway and updates, plans and design boards, sources and links as they relate as well as fun events going on in and around the downtown area. I’ll be using a specific hashtag on social media to keep things all neat and tidy and organized.

‘Tis the Season to be Jolly! And Healthy!

‘Tis the season to be jolly! And healthy! And if you’re wondering where to even start with a healthier lifestyle, here’s my story. As you know, I’m a DIY girl. No fear about diving in and giving things a try. So doing the same when it comes to wellness made sense to me. This is what got me started, raised awareness and made a difference in my lifestyle:

DesertMistPSK

 

Is what you put into your body important to you? I‘m pretty sure by now that you’ve heard a lot about essential oils, right? ::groan:: and ::eye roll:: <— that was my initial reaction too! lol! What IS all the fuss about? Let me share it with you as short and sweet as I can why essential oils are all the rage for me personally. (Some affiliate links below.)

I am so forver grateful someone shared with me: When I first heard, I thought it was some temporary popular trend and I tuned it out. la-la-la-la-la!!!!!! But nearly 4 years ago on a blogging retreat, two of my blog buddies shared essential oils with me…I have a bit of an issue with traveling which causes some uncomfortable side effects (TMI! you don’t want to know) and the essential oil shared made all the difference! Oh.my.good.NESS! If it worked for that, how else? In my world at the time, my mom and sister were going through treatments for breast cancer. I was ready and open to making healthier choices. Baby steps. Just starting somewhere.

You guys, I’ve had 6 family members diagnosed with cancer in SIX years! I felt so helpless! 

DIYShowOff

Essential oils have been around FOREVER and I know that lately they’re ALL THE HYPE but I believe it’s because word of mouth spreads faster these days via social media. They aren’t new. And specifically, Young Living has been around going on 30 years! I was still practically a child (and I’m a grandma now!). That’s not anything bright and shiny and just born. And “Young Living” is THE BRAND everyone wants. Because guess what? Not all essential oils are created equal! What I really love about Young Living is their Seed to Seal Guarantee. They aren’t just buying from a supplier and slapping on a label. Young Living controls the process of planting, harvesting, distilling, bottling, labeling and shipping from their own farms and partner farms from around the world with high standards and lots of testing. In fact,

Seed to Seal

 

Young Living is the #1 essential oils company in the world. I am confident that I am getting the best quality essential oil. One other quick point about Young Living…unlike buying a cheap oil from Amazon or WalMart or even TJMaxx (be aware: even a label with 100% pure doesn’t mean that’s the case), I love that I have support, resources and testimonials from personal experiences to help guide me on my oily journey. I’ve never had to work about my health but now I’m empowered to research, to learn more and to embrace wellness. When someone tells me they tried an essential oil and it didn’t work, I’m pretty sure they tried a fragrance or lower grade, not the quality of Young Living essential oils. 

Nostalgia: Something that is really important to me … creating an environment for my sweet grandson that’s FREE of toxins. Know what else I really love? You know how a certain scent will take you back to a really special memory? I love that he is going to associate those amazing good scents like lavender or clove/cinnamon with his grammy. 

roeshel @diyshowoff grandmas rock!

What is an essential oil anyway? My first uneducated thought: “oh, some air freshening junk that maybe helps you relax, snake oils for hippies”. An essential oil is the substance created by plants for protection against damage, injury, predators, environmental/weather changes. And they work for humans (oh and my dog and that horse too) in much the same way. Whoa! I certainly never imagined that essential oils had powerful health benefits. What? Why haven’t we heard about them before? Why didn’t I know that I could grab an essential oil for relief or health support in so many ways without the synthetic chemicals or side effects? The answer to that is an involved blog post for another day but just because I never knew, doesn’t mean it isn’t so. Essential oils were one of the first medicines! I’m learning so much and I’m so thankful that my friends DID share with  me because it’s made a HUGE difference in our lifestyle, our health, our finances and our home. 

 

Again, why Young Living brand? The history, the quality, the support, the selection (hello essential oils, personal care, supplements, cleaning products and so much more – toxin free products I use every day!), the opportunities (ask me how I’m going to the lavender farm for FREE this fall and how I’ve passed up my blogging income, especially when I vowed I would NEVER promote one of those work-from-home type companies). It’s rewarding having the opportunity to help others make healthier choices too. I see how it really is changing lives. And because I see that for myself personally, I really can’t help but to shout it out to you on my blog on occasion or from the top of my lungs on Facebook! “YOU need these oils too!” 

 

Recommendation:

SO here is what I recommend: THIS DIFFUSER IS THE BOMB! 3-5-10 hour settings, LED lights (including a pretty candle flicker)! Love it!

essential oils @diyshowoff

…just dip your toe in by purchasing the premium starter kit. Just try and see. This gives you the biggest bang for your buck with NO obligations. It’s the best way to give essential oils a good fair shot to see the benefits for yourself! For $160 (+tax/shipping) you get:

 
  • A diffuser: You’re going to want to diffuse your essential oils into the air so you can breathe in those health benefits and support! What I love: unlike a candle, there are no toxic chemicals or synthetic fragrances. I get to choose the scent I want to diffuse…something uplifting or relaxing, something immune boosting or cleansing, etc. AND I get to control the strength. A drop or two for sensitive noses, more for a POW – my house smells amazing! The diffusers are constructed of a medical grade material that will not break down with the use of essential oils. It also comes with a 1 year warranty.
  • 11 bottles of essential oils: Peppermint (cooling, great for after exercise, occasional head tension, supporting a healthy digestive system), Frankincense (supports healthy skin, meditative/spiritual, promotes a sense of well being), Lemon (energizing and cleansing), Citrus Fresh (I love adding a few drops to freshen up laundry)), DiGize (a must have for supporting a healthy digestive system), Thieves (supports a healthy immune system, very popular oil that because of it’s awesome power is also used in YL’s household cleaner concentrate, bar soap, hand soap, laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid and dishwasher powder, dental products, hand purifier, etc. too – it’s SO good!), Lavender (relaxing and calming and awesome for all.things.healthy.skin!!!), Copaiba, PanAway (smells like IcyHot, great for after exercise), Raven (supports a healthy respiratory system!), Stress Away (enough said!).
  • A sample of Thieves Household Cleaner (YOU WILL LOVE THIS!!! Cinnamon/clove scent?! Yes please!)
  • Sample bottles and cards to share with others.
  • Sample Ningxia Red (super juice – POW!) 
  • A lifetime wholesale membership – sounds scary but there are no obligations to order ever again. But if you do want to, you now have access to 24% off retail prices! Hurray! Spend 50 pv ($around $50) per year to stay an active member or … hey, go inactive. There is no penalty. You just don’t order again, you walk away free and clear.
  • Friendships and support!
  • The potential to share with others and to make a paycheck – it’s just there, hanging out, yours for the taking IF you want it. No requirements. No monthly quotas. You never HAVE to ‘sell’ or share or speak a word to anyone if you don’t want to. But if you do, you might just get an accidental paycheck! Let’s discuss the details. It’s not like your usual work-from-home multi-level marketing company.
  • Access to a Rewards program IF you decide you love you oils to pieces and can’t live without MORE! Completely optional. I love it because I get things I used to buy at WalMart (but now a chemical free version) and my essential oils delivered to my door and I earn rewards BIG TIME (shopping spree!) but that’s just me. I’m talking about not just essential oils but our toothpaste, household cleaner, deodorant, laundry detergent, lotion, supplements, etc. You have the choice. Decline immediately, sign up if you want some other time or never join it. Up to you!

CYBER MONDAY DIYSHOWOFF PROMOTION:

  • FREE GIFTS! ORDER NOW through November 30, 2018 and receive $25 cash back, a welcome bundle from DIYShowOff (that’s from me to you personally!)

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! 

desert mist diffuser and essential oils

WHAT: 

Immune boost, better sleep, emotional support, a step towards a chemical free home and more! 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.

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!

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 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. 

*****

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. 

Women often spend more time caring for others than they do caring for themselves. A gift like this will go a long way because it gives them the opportunity to give some self love.

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.
