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 me and 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.
I’m a homeschool mom that desires to honor God, care for my family and serve others. It’s my desire to help you pursue your dreams of freedom to allow us to follow the desires the Lord has placed in our hearts- whatever that may be! What holds you back? Time. Money. Health. These are all limitations that Young Living can help free us from.
It's my desire to show you how to ditch those synthetic toxins and switch over to something that will benefit your body, mind, and overall well-being in the perfect plant-based way.
This was me. Tired. All. The. Time. Lack of energy tends to be something I hear a lot of people complain about (especially in my mom circles) But why? For me, I had an underline autoimmune issue and I had to get to the root. Because being tired wasn’t as simple to fix as just taking a nap or going to bed early one night. It required a few lifestyle changes and creating healthy habits.
So why are so many people tired? There are a variety of reasons and most likely it is a combination of reasons. Where do you see your need?
1. Lack of nutrition
3. Need Rest
6. Lack of Purpose
Are you tired due to 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.

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)
