I am a married mama of two kiddos with many food intolerances and sensitivities. I use oils for EVERYTHING. Literally. I am having so much fun experimenting! I love to cook with oils, (I don’t have to buy so many spices, plus the oils never expire!) My favorite so far has been Rosemary and Basil added to chicken noodle soup. My passion is to bless others. I enjoy sitting down with my new members and walking through their starter kit with them. I show them how to make blends and answer any questions. As a result of being more health minded, my family now eats mostly organic/non GMO. We also have a chemical free home! Even down to the toothpaste and hairspray. I love Young Living!
Pressed from the fresh rinds of the fruit, Lemon Vitality is a delicious essential oil that has that wonderfully nostalgic taste and smell of lemon drop candy. It’s a great substitute in any recipe calling for fresh lemon juice, rind, or flavoring—without all the hassle of zesting, grating, or juicing. It’s especially good in shortbread cookies, jams, or even a glass of ice-cold water.
Lemon Vitality’s versatility in sweet and savory recipes is what makes this fruit a popular item in kitchens around the world. Use Young Living’s Lemon Vitality™ essential oil to add flavor to savory foods like fish and chicken or sweet foods like pastries and cakes. Lemon Vitality oil has a bright taste you’ll want to keep on hand for almost anything you whip up. I’m available for any essential oil question – Get in touch!
I grew up in the 90’s, munching on chips, brownies and instant noodles. My mother worked and we just kind of raised ourselves to some degree. As I grew older, I came to realize how the food I was choosing was making a direct impact on my health. Several auto immune diseases run in my family, and my symptoms were unmanageable. I was diagnosed with PCOS, low progesterone, hypoglycemic and put on watch for potential Diabetes in the future.
I started doing a ton of research, and came to find out that many autoimmune disorders, especially PCOS, have a recommended diet of a more Paleo inspired lifestyle. I started eating that way, and my health started to improve. Then I discovered Young Living Essential Oils. I quickly came to the realization that not only was I surrounded by amazing people who were all using oils, but that so many were passionate about OTHER things connected to health and wellness. I have learned so much.
I used some lovely organic gluten/dairy/soy free toast with avocado, and Melt organic spread. Tasty breakfast!
I decided to start taking control of my family’s internal health by going organic. I would LOVE to have a garden and get some chickens. That is my goal for spring of 2017. One tip I learned from Teri Secrest, who is an amazing Royal Crown Diamond with Young Living: “If there are 3 things I would recommend to buy organic, they would be: carrots, lettuce and tomatoes!” Did you know that farmers may plant carrots in a field because it helps pull the pesticides from the ground? Plus organic carrots just taste so much better, and the price isn’t really that much more. Go ahead, try them! You won’t be sorry. 🙂
The benefits have been amazing. I am able to lose weight for the first time in 5 years. I am enjoying exploring different natural stores in the area and finding my favorites. I enjoy using YLEOils to flavor my food in an amazing and all natural way. It’s been a lot of fun experimenting. Here are my results from my 30 pound weight loss. I am still working to get healthy and am determined to succeed!
