What's in the Bag

I never thought I'd live to see the day that I'd say, "I love the smell of Patchouli!"...essential oil, that is. The mere thought would make most cringe- but this is not the commercial, alcohol-laced perfumed fragrance we are accustomed to turning up our noses at. Patchouli in the plant form is part of the mint family- who knew!! For centuries, Eastern medicine used it to fight infection, cool fevers and as an antidote for snake and insect bites. This oil is a digester of toxic material in the body; it may also help with skin issues and acne. The smell....oh the smell, is sedating, calming and relaxing (no- NOT STINKY) It's an amazing addition to skin moisturizers and eczema creams or try diffusing it with Lavender or Bergamot for a relaxing state of mind. Crazy, I know!!

Not all oil brands are created equal

I can not stress enough just how important it is to know the what, when and where of your essential oils- especially if you plan to ingest them! Young Living Essential oils has an open-door policy at their farms, where literally you can watch the harvest process from soil to bottle- with nothing to hide. I can get behind that. Read labels...look for the guarantee. If there's an expiration date- run! All-natural doesn't expire- bit fillers do. Read.

Want to stay in touch?

Let's be honest, this has been a crazy busy year- can I get an Amen?! I haven't done the things I've wanted to do, had the oil parties I've wanted to have. It's been a tough! So as I stare down the eyes of my already over-worked calendar, I know I am not alone in my struggle to stay afloat. A healthy lifestyle is about the 'whole' body- mind, body, spirit. I've got a couple of these almost nailed... and the rest is a work in progress. But, I consciously reach for my oils daily- for my kids, for me...for our well-being. Because this is what I believe in for my family! Each time I answer a "HELP!" question, or sit down to (finally) type out my newsletter, I get rejuvenated with the idea...this is the time, this is the month, this is the year- for someone else to do a few simple changes to their lifestyle that will start a chain-reaction!! Be. The. One.

Looking for a little extra oily support?! I've created a facebook page just for this.
