Living My Best Life with a little help from the world’s best Essential Oils 💕

Sometimes I forget what it was like 3 years ago; that day when my Premium Starter Kit arrived in the mail and I opened it up.  I just remember my excitement; this whole new world that I was about to become part of!  I opened everything and smelled every bottle…feeling a little overwhelmed and slightly dizzy from sensory overload.

At the time, every bottle kind of smelled the same to me and I couldn’t believe people actually knew what to use and when.  How did anyone remember that Thieves and Purification supported the immune system and that RC and Peppermint supported the respiratory system?? 😳

Fast forward 3 years and I can count over 100 open bottles of oils in my home, about 25 of which I use every single day and I’ve never felt better!  It takes time and patience and consistent use to learn what every bottle does, and I still use my reference guide to look up new ideas all the time, but the small effort is SOOOO worth it!

There’s NOTHING better than having all the tools you need for your (and your family’s) physical and emotional health right at your finger tips.

🤩 Imagine your home smelling fresh and clean all the time, having a restful nights sleep every single night and creating your own perfumes and room sprays that don’t disrupt your endocrine systems.

🤩 Imagine a home with zero harsh chemicals, zero products that would cause you to call poison control when consumed and cleaning products your toddlers can play with.

🤩 Imagine staying above the wellness line ALL YEAR LONG, not even blinking an eye when your co-worker coughs all over you, having a company at your disposal that you can trust, and receiving a pay check for helping your friends stay healthy too.

That’s what I have now.  Thanks to Young Living. 🥰

✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

Now let me tell you as simply as possibly what you need to know:

Essential oils are basically the life blood of the plant they are pressed or steamed distilled from.  They have properties that work seamlessly with the cells in our bodies to bring us into our optimum homeostasis.  All we need to do is get them into our bodies so they can do their jobs!

Everyday we should be using essential oils in all 3 ways:

✨Topically – on the skin, diluted with a little coconut, grapeseed or olive oil

✨Internally – consumed in water, tea, coffee, juice or in a vegetable capsule

✨Aromatically – breathed in right from the bottle or in a cool mist diffuser

*Always use only a couple drops at a time as essential oils are VERY concentrated forms of that plant.

To stay well, essential oils should be used in these 3 ways multiple times throughout the day.  Some people like to premake roller bottles or spray bottles for quick application while others prefer to carry full bottles right in their purses to add to glass water bottles and car or office diffusers.

And don’t forget supplements!  No one can consume all the nutrients we need in a day so swallowing essential oil infused vitamins like Inner Defense or Multi Greens or Super C, drinking NingXia Red (a superfood beverage loaded with antioxidants and essential oils that support overall health and longevity) and adding oils to capsules can be a game changer for our wellness.

I do all of the above.  The more you use the oils, the more likely your emotions and health will stay balanced.

You don’t need to know exactly how to use them before you start.  Just experiment.  Get them in and on your body.  See how you feel.  Feel the changes.

✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

Try these 10 SIMPLE IDEAS once you get those oils in your hands (and when I say oils, I am only speaking for Young Living’s pure oils as I have not seen proof of the purity of other companies’ oils):

♥️1. Put a roller top on your bottle of StressAway EO and roll it on your wrists when the day gets crazy.

♥️2. Put a 3 drops of Lemon or Peace & Calming EO in your diffuser, fill it with cool water and breathe it in

♥️3. Fill a 2oz glass spray bottle with a pinch of salt, 10 drops StressAway and 7 drops Peppermint and water.  Shake and spray the bathroom for a spa like atmosphere.

♥️4. Add 2 drops of Purification EO or Citrus Fresh EO to a cotton ball and put it in your gym bag or trash or sweaty shoes

♥️5. Add 10 drops of Lavender to a small jar of epsom salt, shake it up and sprinkle a little in your kid’s bath a night time to help everyone wind down

♥️6. Grab a 10ml roller bottle off Amazon and fill it with 10 drops Valor, 10 drops Lavender and top off with a carrier oil like liquid coconut, grapeseed, jojoba, V6 or olive oil.  Roll on the shoulder blades, jaw line, wrists or anywhere to promote relaxation

♥️7. Grab another 10ml roller bottle and fill it with 10 drops Digize EO and your carrier oil of choice.  Roll in a large circle around your belly button at every meal.  Do the same for your kids.  Put one in every bathroom.

♥️8. Grab another 10ml roller bottle and fill it with 10 drops Thieves EO and your carrier oil of choice.  Give one to each of your kids to apply anywhere on their bodies, especially the bottoms of their feet and spines, throughout the day.

♥️9. Drink 1-2 ounces of NingXia Red EVERYDAY – ✨seriously, if you do nothing else, at least do this one✨

♥️10. Take that packet of Thieves Household Cleaner, dump it in a big ole spray bottle and fill it with water.  Clean every single thing in your house.  Need scrubbing power?  Sprinkle baking soda down and then spray with the Thieves Cleaner.  Throw out all your other toxic cleaning chemicals.  YOU NO LONGER NEED THEM.

ENJOY!  Switching to a life of fewer toxic products is fun and liberating!  Everything smells wonderful and nothing causes your body harm or headaches!

Switching out products in your home takes time.  Switch out one thing every month.  Start by replacing your aerosol bathroom spray with the StressAway Peppermint spray I mentioned above.  Then the next month, switch out your all purpose cleaner for Thieves Cleaner.  The next month, replace your hand soaps with Castile soap mixed with 10 drops of Thieves or Citrus Fresh Essential Oil.

Superfood NingXia Red!

Are you consuming enough antioxidants? Not likely.

I’m snowed in today so I’m going to share with you some research I’ve recently discovered about antioxidants and my new favorite beverage, NingXia Red (or as my kids call it, “magic juice”)!

Antioxidants are incredibly important and powerful! Here’s some ways antioxidants can help YOU stay in optimal health:

*Love on your skin, eyes, tissue, joints, heart, and brain

*Improve skin making it healthier & more youthful

*Help cells turn over optimally

*Detoxify the body by removing free radicals

*Provide a longer life span

*Protect against cardiovascular damage

*Lower your risk of cognitive problems

*Reduce risk for vision loss or disorders

Without sufficient antioxidants, we may have poor cellular turnover which can lead to a host of unfun issues!

Did you know that your body will completely change ALL of the cells in its body every 7 years? That’s a new opportunity for health and wellness every 7 years! Isn’t that amazing?! So any wrongs you’ve done in the past can be erased through making good choices TODAY.

But when we make bad choices over and over again, each 7-year cycle gets progressively worse and nobody wants that.

This is where antioxidants can be so powerful! They keep your cells healthy and happy. 😁

My favorite antioxidant is NingXia Red and here’s why: In 1993, Young Living Founder D. Gary Young, was traveling the world seeking the natural secrets of life, energy, and vitality, when he discovered a small culture living extraordinary long lives and was introduced to Chinese scientist Dr. Songqiao Chao. Dr. Chao told Gary about a delicious berry that had been prized for thousands of years in China for its powerful health supporting benefits. He further explained that the people who regularly ingested this berry led remarkably long and healthy lives.

No wonder China feeds NingXia wolfberries to their Olympians! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️

People eating these particular wolfberries were living longer, healthier lives so Gary became convinced that this super-fruit needed to be made available to everyone! By combining the fruit with citrus 🍊 essential oils (for their high limonene content) and a few other powerhouse 🍒 fruits, Gary created a powerful superfood drink that tastes great and replenishes the body with key nutrients!

Independent testing from Brunswick Laboratories showed that Ningxia Red contains the highest amount of superoxide radical (S-ORAC), the most powerful antioxidant, when compared to all other antioxidant drinks on the market.

In fact, 1 oz. of NingXia Red has the same amount of antioxidant levels as:

34 large onions

or 100 oranges

or 814 blueberries

or 22 medium carrots

or 10.85 pounds of spinach

or 55.33 pounds of almonds

or 59 broccoli florets

or 73 medium strawberries

or 93 apples

or 130 tomatoes

I don’t know who is going to eat over 800 blueberries or over 90 apples in one day, but go you if that’s your thing! If you want to learn more about NingXia Red, follow the NingXia Challenge Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/30daynxrcheerschallenge/ because they have been sharing some amazing studies and info!! Or do your own research by visiting scholar.google.com or pubmed.org. If you were going to add just one new health improvement to your routine this year, let it be drinking 1-2oz of NingXia Red every day. It tastes good, improves your cell & overall health, gives you optimal energy and promotes quality sleep. What more could you want?

Seriously, even your dog 🐕 should be drinking this stuff!

Time to rally the kids up for their daily 1oz shot of NingXia Red! #livebetter

Happy Snow Day to you all! ❄️

Fall Infused Essential Oil Recipes! 🍁🌾

Are you one of those “Pumpkin-spice-everything please!” people? Or do you absolutely love the smell of apple pie and the sight of leaves changing colors on the trees? How about creamy lattes, plaid scarves and fuzzy boots!? If any of that sounds appealing these recipes are for you!

I usually talk/type too much and can go on and on about essential oils for hours so I’m going to tone it done on this blog entry and just give you the ish you really want here, which is the recipes!

So here you go. Get out your DIY containers, your diffuser and your Young Living essential oils and get ready to make your home the best smelling one on the block! 😍👏

Let’s start by turning on the diffuser, shall we:

Hell yes please!! Did you just fill that diffuser with water and add in the spiced cider combo??

Because it’s perfection.

Here’s a fun DIY!:

Have you ever used sugar scrub?? Maybe you prefer dry crunchy legs but not this mama. Sugar scrub those babies down in the shower and they’ll feel sooo silky after. Or gift your cute little jar to a friend!

Hold up. Coffee break. Pumpkin spice it up:

Ok I’m back.

Pumpkins!!!!

Sorry. Fall is just the best season ever and I got excited…

Ok more recipes:

Putting this baby in the bathroom 🚽.  I never have to buy toxic bathroom spray again!

Hold on. The spray smells too wonderful, now I’m hungry:

1 box spice cake mix

1 can pure pumpkin (preferably organic but my wallet was feeling a little empty today)

1 drop YL Nutmeg EO

1 drop YL Cinnamon Bark EO

(Although not pictured, please use the Vitality line of Young Living’s essential oils when cooking or consuming the oils).

Ok mini muffins are in the oven. What else shall we make?

Don’t have Cinnamon Bark or Clove EO? Use Thieves! 8 drops of Thieves, 4 drops Orange (or Lemon or StressAway if you only have starter kit oils). Or whatever combo you love! Thieves is a great immune system support though so I always use it in my fall and winter hand soaps!

Wow that was an inexpensive one! I’m never buying hand soap again!

And you can use any foaming hand soap container for this. Glass, stainless steel, plastic. But if it’s plastic be sure it says PET, PETE or HDPE on the bottom so you know it’s higher quality plastic that can hold up to our diluted essential oil masterpiece.

Muffins are done!

Ok let’s see..

We did a lot of spiced things so let’s cool it down with some lip balm. Feel free to leave out the cocoa powder if you prefer it to be clear (which I do) instead of brown. The cocoa butter is chocolatey enough.

Prefer the lip balm be more apple pie like? Use this combo instead of Peppermint EO:

P.s. I buy my lip balm containers on Amazon.com (just like most of my oily supplies). But NEVER buy your oils there. It’s not worth the risk. Only use oils you trust as they aren’t regulated and the word “pure” is a self-given title.

I only trust Young Living and here’s why:

Power Peppermint Mocha Iced Coffee (for amazing skin and sexy muscles)

Hot summers call for amazing iced coffee!  ..At least when you live in New England!  But this coffee is more than just amazing, its everything your body needs in one iced cold delicious drink!

You’ve probably heard of “bullet proof” coffee by now.  All “bullet proof” really means is that powerful fats and other nutrients our bodies need were added to your morning cup of joe.  This Peppermint Mocha Iced Coffee Recipe is the same idea only I didn’t add grass fed butter or coconut oil because its ICED… that means the coconut oil or butter would be chunky rather than melted…eeww.

So anyways, lets talk about ingredients.

First, you’ll want to brew a cup of coffee. 8-10oz cup is good.  I like to use a dark roast usually so that when my ice cubes start to melt, my coffee doesn’t seem to get watery as fast, but any coffee is good.  Next you will need milk.  I usually use a little organic half & half and a little 1% milk.  If you don’t want to use dairy, vanilla almond milk or coconut milk are great alternatitives!  For a sweetener, I LOVE agave.  It’s a low-glycemic sweetener and is therefore better for your body than regular sugar.  You could also try a little maple syrup or stevia or monk fruit sweetener too.  Feel free to leave out both the milk and sweetener if you like your coffee black!

That part was basically about making a regular coffee.  Now for the POWER part!  You will need 1. A good collagen powder and 2. A good protein powder.

Collagen is great for our joints, tendons, ligaments, bones, skin and muscles!  As we age, our bodies need more collagen to stay strong, flexible and hydrated… No one wants to be dried up and wrinkly!  I use Neocell Super Collagen but Great Lakes makes a good one too.  From personal experience, I’ve noticed I need to consume a scoop of collagen every day in order to see results.  The collagen needs to build up in your system before you start seeing skin improvements and lean muscle.  It also seems to help my muscles be much less sore after a big workout day.   One scoop of collagen everyday does great things for your body!

Protein Powder will help the collagen build your muscles.  The more lean muscle you have, the faster your body burns fat!  But its important to pick a high quality protein with no fillers.  My favorite protein in the world is Young Living’s Pure Protein Complete.  I use the chocolate deluxe flavor because I like to turn my coffee into a mocha, but the vanilla spice one is good as well.  The Pure Protein Complete has an amazing blend of whey protein, goat whey protein, pea protein, egg white protein AND organic hemp seed protein.  And if that’s not enough, it also has a full range of amino acids to support a healthy metabolism and ancient peat & apple extract to support ATP production (the energy currency in the body).  Crazy right!?  It’s basically all the nutrients you need in a day in one little scoop!

OK so now we have our coffee, milk, sweetener, collagen, and protein with amino acids.  Last thing we need is our Peppermint Essential Oil!  You didn’t think I was going to make something without essential oils, did you??

Peppermint Essential Oil is great for digestion and makes our mocha coffee into PEPPERMINT mocha coffee!  YUM.  I’ve always been a fan of Peppermint Mocha Lates, especially from Starbucks, so this is my WAY HEALTHIER iced version.  All you need is ONE drop of Peppermint Essential Oil for this recipe so technically, one 5ml bottle of Young Living Peppermint Vitality Essential Oil can make at least 75 power peppermint mocha iced coffees!!

By the way PLEASE do not ingest essential oils from other brands unless you have seen their farming and distilling process and trust them entirely.  There are NO regulations for essential oils so you don’t know what you are putting in your body unless the company can show you.  I only trust Young Living because they own their own farms AND you can visit them anytime you want to see how they use NO pesticides and test their oils multiple times before carefully sealing them into little bottles and shipping them to your home.  I decided awhile ago that if I couldn’t see what the company does on the farm, then I wouldn’t buy from that them. So if you don’t have peppermint essential oil yet, you can buy it here: http://www.myyl.com/reposa.  Young Living is also the only company with a Vitality line FDA approved for consumption.

Anyways, back to our power coffee recipe.  Mix all the ingredients with an immersion blender like this one –> 

Then add a bunch of ice cubes.  And drink up!  Cheers to a delicious powerful healthy breakfast beverage and a great start to a new day!  You are now on your way to an amazing bod and healthy skin!

Here’s the full recipe:

-8oz cup of coffee

-1/2 cup milk

-2 teaspoons of sweetener of choice

-1 Drop of Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil

-1 Scoop Collagen powder

-1 Scoop Young Living Pure Protein Complete powder

Blend, add ice, and drink up!

Foaming Hand Soap Recipe!

If you are anything like I was, you probably walk by Bath & Body Works smell some amazing chemical fragrance, do a double take, and walk right into the store.  You probably walk around smelling candles and soaps until your arms are full of goodies and your head starts to hurt from all the synthetic fragrances.

Don’t worry, becoming chemical free doesn’t have to mean, no more fun smells!  Thanks to essential oils you can create your own toxin-free soap with REAL smells from REAL plants, rather than something chemically engineered and labeled as “fragrance”.  Did you know that the ingredient “fragrance” is actually a catch-all label for hundreds of different chemicals…so something that says “natural fragrance” or even just “fragrance” could have just about anything in it!… They might as well just write “possibly contains dog poop” on it 😜

Anyways, back to business.  Time to make some REAL soap.  The good news about all those trips to Bath & Body Works is that you can use all their nice foaming hand soap containers because they’re actually made with a good quality plastic (PETE)!  Just dump out the chemical yuck and buy a big bottle of unscented Castile soap (one 32oz bottle will make about 32 bottles of foaming hand soap!).  I usually buy my Castile soap on Amazon.. But you can also find it in decent grocery stores.

Now for the RECIPE!:

-Foaming hand soap dispenser

-2 Tablespoons Castile Soap (approximately, I hate measuring so I just squirt some in there)

-20-30 drops of your favorite Essential Oils (Don’t go to the grocery store and buy cheap junk, get the real deal here because then you can multi-task by getting rid of the chemicals AND adding in immunity boosting oils! BAM now you’re really on fire!)

-Fill the rest of the way with water (leave space at the top so you don’t overflow when you put the top on like I always seem to do..)

-Optional: 1 teaspoon of Vitamin E oil or fractionated coconut oil (keeps your hands soft)

Done!

See! Kicking chemicals out of your home isn’t so hard after all! 😁 #winning

So here’s mine! (Post pics of yours on my FB page @ultraoily for chances to win free stuff!) Since my new foaming soap is going in the kids bathroom, I added 10 drops of Thieves Essential Oil to boost their immune systems and 10 drops of Purification Essential Oil for its amazing stink-eating smell!! (p.s. Both of those are in the Premium Starter Kit here)
