It's only been recently that I've discovered how powerful essential oils can be therapeutically and around the house (see previous post on thieves household cleaner). I diffuse Thieves in the office to kill off airborne germs, use different blends of lavender, lemon, rosemary and peppermint in the acupuncture room to promote relaxation and emotional healing, and use Copaiba at night to help me fall into a deep sleep and to promote a relaxing atmosphere.
I use Young Living oils for many reasons- predominately because they control process from start to finish (seed to seal), they own all of their distilleries, they own their farms, they test their soils to make sure they're organic and untainted, they support local communities in indigenous areas and sponsor individuals in those areas to attend school (which they built and provided). For a million more reasons, I choose Young Living- but I'll save that for a future post.
The Premium Essential Oil Starter Sets are the ultimate introduction into essential oils. It comes with 11 oils + an incredible diffuser that uses vibration and water to emit the oils into the air and does not heat the oils like many other diffusers which would reduce or eliminate any therapeutic properties.

Sunscreen is meant to protect you and your family, right? But what happens when that sunscreen is not so protective afterall and instead is actually linked to numerous health concerns? It should be regulated, right? Because dangerous sunscreens wouldn't possibly be allowed to be sold in stores? You might be surprised to find out the truth.
"The Food and Drug Administration has not reviewed evidence of potential hazards of sunscreen filters – instead it grandfathered in ingredients used in the late 1970s when it began to consider sunscreen safety. (1)"
As many of you know I've been making my own household cleaners for the past several years (see citrus vinegar recipe for details). What many of you didn't know is that M is not a fan of my homemade citrus vinegar products. He comes from a Spic & Span/ Clorox lovin' family.
Although M was always grateful for a clean home it didn't stop him from making comments about our home 'smelling like vinegar'. He tolerates my natural cleaners out of love but if it was up to him he'd be shopping down the chemical cleaning aisle of the grocery store.
Well folks- this girl has found a solution! And it's a darn good one at that. Not only does it replace virtually ALL chemicals and cleaners in your home (including stainless steel polisher- I can vouch for this as I literally just wiped down the fridge and dishwasher and they're super shiny now) but it also SMELLS FANTASTIC. M can vouch for that one! Hallelujah- a safe / non-toxic product we can both agree on (plus if your guy is into budgeting like mine is- he'll definitely love the price point on this one!).
I'm not going to lie...some aspects of healthy eating get a little expensive. If you're smart about how you shop you can really cut down on costs. I've been eating clean for so long that I truly believe I've mastered the budget.
A good quality exfoliator is crucial for a healthy skincare routine. Our skin is constantly turning over dead skin cells that are waiting to slough off. Those dead skin cells pile up on the surface of our skin which leaves it dull & lusterless and prevents moisture and nourishment from being absorbed. Don't worry, I've got the answer for this problem. What is it? How do you use it? What skin type is this best for? These are all questions that will be answered here!
This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy quinoa- the only reason why I haven't posted this sooner is because I never manage to get a good picture before it gets scarfed down. Finally I decided to just post this without a great picture because frankly, you deserve this recipe!
