I’m just a Mom on a journey to wellness, purpose & abundance with old friends and new! My mission is to educate families on how to live chemical-free lives, find freedom for their families and to, Lord Willing, empower others to do the same. This has been a true game changer for my family as we continue on our own journey. Every essential oil (or infused product) we use is a chemical we are not using!! You can FEEL the difference. Won’t you join the journey with us?

It's my desire to show you how to ditch synthetic toxins and switch over to something that will benefit your body, mind, & overall well-being in the perfect plant-based way.
We each have our own reasons why we want to learn how we can make your home a healthier environment. Mine began after I had my first child but really took shape when I realized I was battling an autoimmune disease. Whatever the reason may be, I am so glad you are seeking answers because IT IS FOR A REASON. This journey is going to be life-changing. What we don’t always realize, is the choices we make each day, either fights disease or contributes to it. It happens little by little, day-by-day, choice-by-choice. It’s not just about the food you eat and how much exercise you get that contributes to a healthy life. For me, it wasn’t enough. Yes, both are very important, but what you may not realize is THE products you’re using in your home daily, The products you put on your body, and the air quality you are breathing in your home matters just as much, if not more!
Did you know that air you breathe inside your home can be anywhere from 5 to 10times more polluted than outside air? Some experts say even a higher percentage. Scary huh? This is due to your home being inadequately ventilated. So every product you use in your home stays in your home for you to BREATHE IN. Among the worst are, household air fresheners, (including candles, plugins, wax burners and sprays), cleaning products, fabric softeners, dryer sheets, and much more.
Now, I know all this information can be overwhelming. I felt the same way the first time I heard these facts. But that is what they are, facts. And for the sake of our health and our future, we need to know this. Understand, knowledge is power, and we are the gatekeepers of our home. You are the best caretaker for your family, no one else. YOU are!
Are you ready to learn more? Throughout my All Things Thieves Class, we will share some shocking news about what is lurking in your cabinets and give you safer alternative options from Young Living’s Thieves line. We’ll even throw in a few bonus DIY recipes!
Do you want to learn how diverse essential oils are and the numerous ways you can utilize them, and bring them into your everyday life? I did!!
First, it is very important to realize that your health depends on the quality of the essential oil that you are introducing into your body. In our home, we use essential oils in three ways: inhalation, topical application, & ingestion. (yes- you read that right)
When you use an essential oil, the molecules are readily transported into your systemic blood circulation, and then to the different organs and tissues in your body in SECONDS. Depending on the quality, purity, and composition of the essential oil, these molecules can either do you harm, provide you with no health benefit whatsoever, provide you with incredible health benefits. This is why the quality of essential oils matters.
With that in mind, check out my Essential Oil 101 class as we explore the basics and discover some of the most popular essential oils and how to use them.
Are you tired all the time? Always feeling run down? Do you get sick a lot? Do you struggle with chronic health issues? You may be suffering from lack of nutrition?
The Standard American Diet truly is SAD. Even if we are super careful with what food we consume-it is incredibly hard to get all our nutrients from the food we eat. It’s also not just about what we eat, but what we ABSORB.
TIP: Try adding one thing that is nutrient dense and easy for your body to utilize before taking things out of your diet- baby steps are more sustainable than huge changes. For my family that was Ningxia Red. Easy peasy to fortify our bodies with antioxidant-rich nutrients every day with just 2 ounces of Ningxia.
Having an antioxidant-rich diet is REALLY good for your health. Sure you can eat a bunch of fruits and veggies high in antioxidants but sometimes it’s hard to get the quantity you really need into your diet or it’s a struggle to get the kids to eat what they need.
NingXia Red is insanely high in antioxidants. Ningxia wolfberries are one of the fruits highest on the ORAC scale. The ORAC scale measures antioxidant levels. For more information about the ORAC scale, google it. Just a few ounces a day of NingXia Red will give your body the antioxidants it needs. The best part is that kids beg for this stuff!
It’s healthy enough for mom & tastes good enough for the kids.
To learn more about Ningxia Red and some super fun recipes check out my class on Ningxia Red.
If you already have a very clean diet make sure you are consuming good quality supplements like probiotics, digestive enzymes to increase absorption of those good foods you are eating.
There was a point in time I had to actually train myself to drink water. I didn’t grow up drinking water- that was something we used to clean with– not to drink. Lol. I didn’t like the taste of it, I didn’t want to drink as much as I should because I just wasn’t “thirsty”. Where did not drinking enough land me? In the hospital with kidney stones. Apparently, I like to learn things the hard way. It also added to my autoimmune issues. Sluggishness, Fatigue, toxic load…
So many of us are living in a state of chronic dehydration. (and many aren’t even aware) This can create sooo many symptoms. We need water not just liquids! Our minimum goal should be half our weight in ounces each day. (so if you weigh 150lbs you should consume at least 75 ounces) this is a minimum- if you are already in a state of stress or are physically active you NEED more.
When I find myself not drinking enough (it is still a challenge) I will increase my liquid intake with smoothies and soups too- but water is still a must. So I will set a timer and drink 6-8 ounces each hour. In the beginning (after my kidney stones) I would set a 30-minute timer and drink 2-4 ounces each time because it was literally challenging for me to drink even that amount. I had to work my self up.
TIP: Don’t like the taste of water? Try infusing your water with fresh fruit, cucumbers or Young Living Vitality Oils (these are labeled safe for internal use) My favorite is seltzer water with lime vitality oil. Alexandra loves the grapefruit and citrus fresh… Chad? He uses lemon, lavender & peppermint almost every day in his water because it also helps keep his airways open and him breathing easily.
HOW MUCH WATER DO YOU DRINK??
Here is a book my sister in law (she is a nurse) recommended to me (full disclosure I have not read all of it- but what I did was eye opening)
