It's that time of year again...are you ready?

Cold and Flu Season, also known as fall/winter, is upon us!  How are you choosing to protect your family?  If you haven't made that decision yet, dislike seeing your children wince through injections, aren't a fan of side effects and would like a natural alternative, then I'd like to introduce you to Thieves® Essential Oil.

Thieves® was created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. This proprietary essential oil blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities. It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health.

If this blend of oils was effective in keeping the robbers from contracting the plague, then why wouldn't it keep us from catching the flu?!?!

For information on how you can purchase Thieves® Essential Oil, please contact me.

Ningia Red to the Rescue!

Since giving birth to our son in January I just haven't felt like my usual productive, organized, motivated on-top-of things self.  Having a baby takes a toll on a woman's body and caring for a child is constantly on a new-mother's mind.  While I love our son and am so thankful God has blessed our lives with him, I was feeling down a lot.  I had little energy, couldn't focus well, and was very scatter-brained.  That combination right there is not conducive to productivity.  At all.  At the beginning of October, we started drinking one ounce of Ningia Red a day.  Within just a couple days I was starting to feel like my pre-mommy self!  I was amazed!  That small ounce of super-food packed Ningxia Red gave me the nutrients I needed to feel energized, focused, and finally be productive again!  I love Ningxia Red and the wonderful health benefits this beverage provides!

My husband who works one to three 12 hour days often found himself needing to buy a Mountain Dew to help him make it through the day.  Since he started drinking Ningxia Red, he hasn't had to buy ANY!  He is working 56-60 hours a week and still has energy to spend time with our family when he comes home from work.

Both of us feel better physically and mentally thanks to our Ningxia Red!

Falling Asleep with the Help of Lavender

As long as I can remember I have always had trouble falling asleep.  It seems that no matter how tired my body feels, my mind will not shut off.  I don't know how many nights I have laid in bed for hours, thinking of all the tasks that need to be accomplished the next day, new projects I would like to work on, shopping lists, meal ideas, how to solve world peace...okay, so maybe not the last one, but it does seem like anything and everything is on my mind the moment my head hits the pillow.

But not anymore!  Nope, this girl is FINALLY able to fall asleep within MINUTES (usually 5-10) of lying down.  How is this happening??  

Lavender, my friends!  Lavender!  

Every night before bed I rub one drop of Young Living's Lavender Essential Oil on each of my feet and then put a little on my pillow.  The oil calms and soothes my mind and body, helping me relax so that I can fall asleep.  I am so thankful for this oil!  I can finally get a good night's sleep and feel well-rested and refreshed when I awake.  Something this momma definitely needs!


"Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has a fresh, sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is soothing and refreshing. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it. Lavender is an adaptogen, and therefore can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy. Therapeutic-grade lavender is highly regarded for skin and beauty. It may be used to soothe and cleanse common cuts, bruises, and skin irritations. The French scientist René Gattefossé was among the first to discover these properties when he was severely burned in a laboratory explosion. Lavender may also be used to enhance the flavor of foods" (source)
