Zeus’s Spa Day!

June 2, 2017

Oh…haircut day! Let me tell you, Zeus’s hair cuts have not always went smoothly.  We have spent HOURS calming him and getting him to sit still in order to complete one beauty session.  He has been on the to do list for a few days now and with the warmer weather, he let us know he was ready for a change with his panting and itching…poor boy.  Time to move him to the priority #1 spot!   Continue reading Zeus’s Spa Day!

My 30 Day Challenge

June 1, 2017

It’s my birthday month and I decided it was time to help myself become the healthiest version of me that I can be.  I’ve been making healthy changes in my life for a few years now, but over the winter I got a bit lax on my healthy eating and exercise.  I decided this month I would embark on a new wellness challenge for a couple of reasons.

My Knees are Thanking Me!!!

Good evening everyone!!  Tonight, I want to tell you about this amazing “new to me” supplement….AgilEase.  I have recently started incorporating some YL supplements into my life and this little gem I decided to try because….well…I got it for free this month!  Yes, for free!!!  It is one of the amazing free bonuses you can get in May just for buying your favorite oils and supplements.  Talk about a win-win situation!

Why did I feel it would benefit me?  Well, my knees are not what they use to be.  I’ll admit it. I struggle with crouching for very long and can get some painful stiffness.  Talk about hindering your life!  We finally are getting some amazingly gorgeous weather here in Western Washington and I did not want my knees to be the reason I am not able to enjoy life this summer.  I’ve been taking this supplement for just a little over a week and let me tell you, I am already noticing the benefits. I was able to work in the yard the other day and yes…I was crouching as I was yanking weeds and did not have any pain or uncomfortable feelings getting back up.  This is truly fantastic to me because it’s been years since I could tell you that, so I decided I’d share a little bit of info about this herbal supplement just in case you want to add to your May monthly order (or first time order if you are new to YL) and get this one for free!

So what is it?  It is a supplement that is especially beneficial for athletes, and active people of all ages who want to support joint and cartilage health.  It can also be helpful for middle age and elderly people who experience a natural, acute inflammation response in their joints after exercise.  This joint health supplement is perfect for healthy individuals who are looking to gain greater mobility and flexibility through the reduction of inflammation (that’s me!!)  Simply put…do you have a desire for a more active lifestyle, but find your joints are holding you back?

What is in this nutrition powerhouse?  The answer:  unique and POWERFUL ingredients!  The number one ingredient is frankincense resin powder that comes from Young Living’s own frankincense farm.  So…you guessed it, you are getting that Seed to Seal guarantee in every capsule!  Just Google frankincense and you will be amazed at the wonderful benefits this will add to your life.  AgilEase also contains UC-II undenatured collagen, hyaluronic acid, calcium fructoborate, and a specially formulated proprietary essential oil blend of Wintergreen, Copaiba, Clove, and Northern Lights Black Spruce—oils that are known for their joint health benefits. It also contains turmeric and black pepper, which is an amazing combo that everyone should include in their lives.  Take AgilEase to support joint health or as a preventative measure to protect joint and cartilage health.

Let me add the ease of dosing with this supplement. I will be the first to tell you that I am TERRIBLE about taking any kind of supplements or pills regularly.  I have never been good at this, but YL made it super easy with AgilEase.  All you have to do is take 2 tablets once a day.  That’s it…no special schedules and so easy that even I have taken it every day since I got it in the mail (and that is saying a lot!)

I hope this gives you a little extra information.  If you are interested in supporting your joints and cartilage health, why not give it a try and be the most active you that you can be this summer?

Wellness Benefits of Oregano Essential Oil

0_0_0_0_161_216_csupload_67980374Oregano is much more than just a tasty addition to your favorite spaghetti recipe.  It is actually an essential oil that is not currently part of my oily arsenal.  Oregano came across my radar this month and I was curious about it, so it was time to do a little research to find out what I have been missing!  Plus, I have had a lot of questions about this one pop up, so I wanted to be able to share the benefits with others as well.  Well, let’s just say…. I am adding this baby to my wish list! Continue reading Wellness Benefits of Oregano Essential Oil

EN-R-GEE Essential Oil: The name says it all!


Do you ever have those days where you feel like a choo choo train that is running out of steam? When I feel that way, it affects my concentration and motivation as well as my overall performance. I came home this afternoon and needed to work on the computer for my business.  I also wanted to start my Anatomy & Physiology course, but my energy was low and my focus was poor.   Continue reading EN-R-GEE Essential Oil: The name says it all!

Slique Tea Review

I am going to use Slique Tea for the first time. I intend to drink one cup a tea a day and blog about my experience.  Let’s see where this journey goes!!!   Continue reading Slique Tea Review

Loving Lavender Essential Oil!

80f1e50f09661cc0a45c3eb2754f9f32Lavender oil is one of the most beneficial essential oils in the world and has been referenced for well over 2000 years!! It’s probably the most popular essential oil in the US and I know for myself personally, this is one oil I have been using for years and cannot live without!!  Lavender oil is sort of a…jack of all trades oil!

There are so many uses for Lavender oil and it is a great “go to” oil in general, but one of the main things to keep in mind is that it is relaxing and calming.  It can calm and sooth your body systems, including the skin.  In fact, Lavender is a must for me to have in my household all the time.

We have 6 dogs in our household. Yes…that is a lot of dogs!! One of our pups, Zeus, gets very furry and if he goes too long between haircuts, he will get hot and end up giving himself an itchy hot spot on his back that he won’t leave alone! 5462

I like to mix a little lavender oil into coconut oil and apply it to irritated areas like this to help give him some relief and it helps heal his skin.

Also, if you haven’t researched the benefits of coconut oil, I recommend you do.  So many wonderful health benefits in that oil all on its own!  It is a great carrier oil to use with your essential oils, when you are using them topically.

80f1e50f09661cc0a45c3eb2754f9f32I also have a sweet little chihuahua named Venus (Vivi) and she has always had a nervous/anxious condition. My sweet little girl frightens very easily and is sensitive to electronics and energy. One day, I had the thought go through my head that lavender might help her calm her nerves too.  After all, it works for me! When she gets frightened, she gets very insistent about being held and needs cuddles. Keep in mind, to her, it doesn’t matter how busy you are either! After having Vivi raking at my legs with her claws and shaking uncontrollably one day, I pulled out my essential oil box and grabbed my lavender.  I took one drop, with a little coconut oil and rubbed it on the pads of her feet.  I was amazed how easily she calmed down when I added a little lavender to her system!

Do you ever feel like Vivi or do you have stress in your life?  During times when I need a little extra calm, I will just take a couple of drops of lavender oil and rub it on my upper neck and temples.  I also love to use lavender in my diffuser, or sometimes, will even open the bottle and take a few deep slow breaths. I can noticeably feel my body and mind mellow out.  It’s a wonderful way to help wind down at the end of a busy day.  I love that it has also helped me get better sleep.

I also recently found it interesting to learn that there is a difference between Spike Lavender and Lavender (sometimes referred to as True Lavender) as far as the wellness benefits they provide.  I won’t go too much into the details, but essentially, it all comes down to the different components found in the two different types of lavender.  Both have the relaxing and calming effect, but Lavender has a greater amount of “calming” components, making it the perfect night and relaxing oil for me to use.  Spike Lavender has significantly more camphor in it. I look forward to acquiring some Spike Lavender in the future to see how it might benefit my breathing.

There is so much more we could discuss about this amazing oil, but I’d like to end this blog post by sharing a DIY recipe for Dr. Axe’s Healing Bath.  Dr. Axe reports on the following website, ‘This homemade healing bath salts recipe will help increase relaxation, relieve muscle pain, decrease stress and support body detoxification.” Here is a link to this recipe, if you would like to give it a try yourself!  http://draxe.com/homemade-healing-bath-salts/. The condensed version that he shared in a class I recently took gives you a quick recipe for a single bath too. That one includes taking about 20 drops of lavender oil, one cup of Epsom salts in a hot bath, and just doing a 20 minute soak. Let’s see how relaxed you feel after trying this!

Thanks for stopping by to read about my lavender oil experiences! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
