How Young Living essential oils have changed our lives:



In November of 2014, I called my friend Dana, because I wanted to strengthen our health and wellness. She had posted about Young Living essential oils and invited me to a few classes, but I was a little skeptical about spending $150 for 11 bottles of oils and a diffuser. Since, that afternoon I have used Young Living Essential Oils for my family and it has been one of the best decisions that I have made. To read more: click here

We no longer use dryer sheet with harmful chemicals. We apply 1-2 drops of lavender essential oils to one of the dryer balls. Click here for instructions on how you can make the wool dryer balls and save money.

How to make the drink: Angry Balls





I know, you are saying "What? Angry Balls?" Hear me out. "Angry Balls" is my husband's new favorite drink. When he was out of town in January, he made this drink with a bartender and the hotel bar sold out!!! He ordered it at a bar here last week, the bartender started making samples and then they sold out too!!!

First, you start with your choice of a cider beer. Then you add 1 oz of Cinnamon Whiskey.
And enjoy!

If you do not plan on enjoying this drink at home, please have a designated driver,

Young Living Essential Oils



In November of 2014, I called my friend Dana, because I wanted to strengthen our health and wellness. She had posted about Young Living essential oils and invited me to a few classes, but I was a little skeptical about spending $150 for 11 bottles of oils and a diffuser. Since, that afternoon I have used Young Living Essential Oils for my family and it has been one of the best decisions that I have made.

The reason I chose Young Living as our provider of essential oils is because of their “Seed to Seal” process. Young Living owns their own farms, they test all their products internally and by an external 3rd party. They use essential oils for pesticides and their weed control is done by hand. You can see a video on their Seed to Seal process at: www.seedtoseal.com




If you are considering purchasing Young Living Essentials, you have two ways to purchase them:
1) Purchase them as a retail member at: http://yl.pe/5w3
or 2) Sign up as a Wholesale member and save 24% off retail: http://yl.pe/5w3 
As a wholesale member you can earn free oils through Young Living's monthly promotions or through their essential rewards program.
Plus, you have the option to share Young Living essential oils with your family and friends. When your friends and family sign up to also be a wholesale member, you can earn commission. If you want to earn commission and be a part of the business side please contact me for more information. You do not need to sell Young Living essential oils to be a wholesale member. There is no monthly minimum to purchase.

I recommend the Premium Starter Kit. The Premium Starter Kit ($150 plus tax and shipping) offers the following 11 oils: Frankincense, Joy, Purification, Lemon, Peppermint, PanAway, Lavender, Thieves, StressAway, Melaleuca Alternifolia (aka Tea Tree Oil) and Citrus Fresh. You also will get the home diffuser, two sample packets (2oz each) of NingXia Red and one roller cap to put on any oil bottle. It also makes you a wholesale member so you’ll have your own account to log into to order additional oils or anything you run out of.

Relax and help fall asleep with Young Living essential oils



Obligatory Disclaimer: The information presented during this event is intended for educational purposes only. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent disease. Anyone suffering from any disease, illness, or injury should consult with a physician and use essential oils at their own risk.

First, What is an essential oil?


Usage: You can use Young Living essential oils directly on the skin, inhalation or internally. Always read the label on the bottle or refer to “Essential Oils Pocket Reference” book on how to properly use the oil. You can also use essential oils for household use, cleaning, and beauty products. We have made wool dryer balls and eliminated the need for fabric softener and reduced our drying time. You can also make great gifts and pamper yourself and friends with body butters, sugar scrubs and lip balms made with essential oils.

We recommend “Gentle Babies” book if you have a baby, toddlers, if you are nursing or pregnant. We would also recommend that you dilute essential oils with a carrier oil for children. A carrier oil is Coconut, almond, olive or V-6 vegetable oil. Young Living Essential Oils are 100% pure and need to be diluted.

Precautions: Never place essential oils in your eyes, ears or sensitive areas.




The reason we chose Young Living as our provider of essential oils is because of their “Seed to Seal” process. Young Living owns their own farms, they test all their products internally and by an external 3rd party. They use essential oils for pesticides and their weed control is done by hand.




First up my favorite oil and the one that I use the most for occasional stress.

Stress Away: If I am having a busy, stressful day, I roll this on my wrists to help calm my nerves. I really like the lime scent as part of this 6 oil blend of copaiba, lime, cedar wood, vanilla, ocotea and lavender.


Peace and Calming
I diffuse Peace and Calming in my daughter’s room before she goes to bed. Peace & Calming is a relaxing blend of pure tangerine, ylang ylang, blue tansy, orange, and patchouli essential oils. When diffused, it helps calm tensions and uplift the spirit, promoting relaxation and a deep sense of peace. Peace & Calming may be applied topically or diffused directly into the air.
  Lavender is the most versatile oil. I have used lavender and almond oil on Lillie’s dry cuticles and with coconut oil on her dry skin. I also put it in my homemade foaming hand soap and on wool dryer balls. I also diffuse it in daughters room before she goes to sleep to promote a relaxed feeling. This oil is always in Lillie’s diffuser. Lavender can also help with sunburns and skin irritations. 


I also have made a lavender linen spray that I use on my daughter’s bedding: place 1 cup of distilled water and 10 drops of lavender essential oil in a spray bottle, shake and spray. I use to pay $10 for a bottle of linen spray at the mall, now this one is less than $3.50 to make.

Sleepy time cream recipe: Before my daughter goes to bed at night I rub a small amount of the following cream on her feet: ½ cup of coconut oil, 10 drops of lavender and 10 drops of peace and calming. You can also add cedar wood and valor. Whip coconut oil with a mixer for 5 minutes, add essential oils and store in a glass container.

Cedarwood has a warm, balsamic, woody aroma. It is relaxing and soothing when used for massage. I diffuse this with lavender in my daughter’s room before she goes to bed at night.




      RutaVaLa promotes relaxation of the body and mind. It helps ease tension and relieve stress. I diffuse this with lavender in Lillie’s room before she goes to bed at night. RutaVaLa is available in a 5ml bottle or a roll-on. 



Lavender and stress away are included in the Premium Starter Kit. If you are interested in a diffuser and a couple of the oils, the Premium Starter kit is a great deal with 11 oils, diffuser and two NingXia Red 2oz Samples. If you order the premium starter kit, I will send you the “Essential Oils, Pocket Reference” book and 3 sample bottles with 10 drops each of RutaVaLa, Cedarwood, and Peace and Calming for free as the March special. A $32 value.

I promise it is a decision you will wish you had made a long time ago!

Once you order your Young Living Essential Oils, you WILL NOT be alone. Ihave more resources to share with you.

When you sign up with me, you have access to our educational resources. I have been hearing about people signing up or purchasing oils and then not knowing what to do next. That will never happen with me!

Just a few of our resources to share with you:
1) The Essential Oil Pocket Reference from Life Science Publishers is almost 400 pages PACKED with information!!! I highly recommend this book and would never be without it! It's a must-have book!!! I love this book so much that we are giving it to you for free!

Make your own foaming hand soap with Essential Oils



Fill a foaming hand soap dispenser about 3/4 full of distilled water. (1 cup of distilled water.)
Add 3 Tbs of Castile Soap. I used Dr. Brommer's that I found at Meijer's grocery store.
Add 15 drops of Essential Oil, I used Young Living's Lavender oil. Click here for information on how to order Young Living essential oils.

Optional: Add 3 drops of Vitamin E oil. I had this leftover from another project. Other recipes I found called for olive, almond or coconut oil.

Put lid on top of soap dispenser and shake.

I added up all of my costs and I figured that it cost almost the same as it would be for me to purchase the refill. It might be a quarter more, but the soap that I made contains more natural soap, which is easier for the environment. Plus, I can choose my own scent with my favorite Essential Oil.

I encourage you to research which Essential oil to use in your foaming hand soap. Do not use citrus Essential oils in plastic dispensers.If you are interested in learning more about Young Living Essential Oils, Please contact me on how they can make a difference in your life.

Save Money by making your own Wool Dryer Balls





Wool Dryer Balls are great. They eliminate the need for fabric softener and dryer sheets. They also save on drying time, which saves you more money on your electric bill.When I saw that someone was selling wool dryer balls for $6 each, I knew that I could make mine own cheaper. I made 7 dryer balls for $10, when the wool was on sale at Michael's.
I was also interested in using fewer chemicals on our clothing, since our family has sensitive skin.

What you will need:

  • 1 skein of 100% wool yarn. I asked the lady at Micheal's to help me find the 100% wool yarn to make dryer balls and she knew exactly what I needed. I don't think that I was the only one that has asked her lately. I prefer the medium weigh yarn (grey and cream) and not the bulky yarn (multi colored).
  • 1 pair of old tights.
Making the balls: Wrap yarn about 20 times around 1st 3 fingers. Slip off fingers and wrap it 3-5 times across loops. I left a beginning tail of the yarn to tie it tight.
I wrapped the yarn 20 times across the loops, then begin changing angles to make the ball.


When you get to the desired size, use a heavy duty needle to tuck the final end through the ball.
The first ball that I made was approximately 2".
Here are the 4 dryer balls after wrapping them.
Next step: Felting. Find an old pair of tights or nylons and place them in the legs of the tights. There should be a knot between each ball. Wash and dry them 2 times. Wash them in hot water and dry the balls to achieve the felting process.
This is what the dryer balls look like after
I applied 1 drop of Young Living Lavender Essential Oils to each of the dryer balls. Click here for more information about ordering Young Living essential oils.  If you are interested in learning more about Young Living oils, Please contact me on how they can make a difference in your life.
Next, I used all 7 balls in two loads of laundry. This is what the dryer ball looked like when the drying cycle was done. I did not notice a difference in the static between the dryer balls and fabric softener.

These are the two blog postings that I followed to make my own dryer balls.

Kale Chips


Kale Chips are easy to make and my kids love to eat them.
Rinse Kale and cut of tear into pieces. Place the kale in a zip-lock baggy with a teaspoon of olive oil and shake the baggy. The kale should be lightly covered with olive oil. Remove Kale from the baggy and place on cookie sheet. Sprinkle with Seasoning salt and place in oven at 350 degrees for approximately 5-10 minutes or until the kale is crisp. Enjoy!
