Too good not to share

Ever been in love? If so you know what it feels like to be head over heels, completely consumed by someone or something. This is how I feel about essential oils. Sound extreme? Think again.

If you knew that you had a way to help a friend feel good, help her baby sleep, or support her skin, you would share it right? I mean, we don’t think twice about texting a pal to say that the Zara sale is EPIC, so why would you hesitate if you could share more than just great wardrobe suggestions?

I am passionate about sharing how we can live happier, healthier lives. Essential oils were key in my recovery from maternal mental health. They helped me feel positive, confident and courageous (find out more about essential oils and emotions here). Their impact on me was so huge that I couldn’t not share. Medication didn’t work for me this time around, but I found a natural alternative that supported my emotions and my mental health so well.

Since that first huff in the summer of 2017, I was hooked and have been on an oily journey ever since. The phrase ‘once you know better, do better’ rung true on a whole new level for me as I explored how and why we use essential oils. As a family, we are now well on the way to eliminating as many chemicals as possible from our home, filling our air with life-giving plant oils not putrid perfume and petrochemicals.

Our kids don’t cough like they used to. My skin doesn’t itch like it used to. We don’t get sick like we used to. Coincidence? I think not.

Since we ditched the chemicals and switched to plant based, natural products we have been the healthiest we have ever been. Coughs and colds have been few and far between, illnesses rare and rapidly recovered from. Teething smoother, tantrums shorter (mostly!), periods easier. You name it, every system in our body has benefited. And you can too.

I am on a mission to empower YOU to make a difference in your family health. You are the gatekeeper to your home. You control what comes in through your doors and goes on to and in to your body. Start turning over the products in your bathroom cabinets and kitchen cupboards. Read the ingredients on the labels in the brightly coloured sprays that you use on your babies highchair and on your body. Many of these products contain known carcinogens, known toxins that pollute your atmosphere and damage your organs. When you know better, you do better, and I would love to help you on your journey to a healthier, happier you.

Why Oils Are A Mom Essential

Motherhood is especially hard when your babies aren’t well. My girl has chicken pox, which is no surprise as she has been so exposed to it through many of our close friends. What has surprised me is how hard it has hit her, and my usually tenacious toddler is now feverish and fretful.

Fortunately this isn’t our first rodeo, and having had two boys who suffered with terrible cases of chicken pox, this mama is armed and ready. Last time round, I relied on over the counter drugs and oat filled socks in the bath, however this time I have extra help thanks to my natural wellness kit.

So far I have used 10 of the 12 essential oil in my tool kit. The main contenders are Lavender, Copaiba and Frankincense in the bath and also in coconut oil as a lotion to soothe her skin and calm her mind. Next up Thieves, Purification and Peppermint diffused in her room to help support her immune response and keep her cool. Because she feels warm we are also using Digize to help her tummy feel happy. Mama is slathering on Stress Away and Orange as I cannot bear seeing my babies suffering. That only leaves Lemon (which will be in my G&T later) and R.C. which I usually use for respiratory support! So to say that my oils are well used is an understatement!

Hopefully we will turn a corner tomorrow and start to see the spots drying up, but for now I will be powered by Jesus, coffee and essential oils! Prayers appreciated! In the meantime if you want the down low on how to get this wellness kit into your home, message me or comment below!

Happy Half Year!

July 1st marks the half way point for the year. Think back to January 1st, when the new year was full of promise and potential. When you opened your diary and ran your fingers down the centre spine of the pristine pages, getting ready to kick start the new you. What did you wish for? A new job? A new baby? A new home? A new lifestyle?

More importantly, as you find yourself half way through 2018, are you on the way to achieving or have you achieved what you wished for?

For us, the New Year marked a new chapter for us as a family. Not only had we expanded but we were also starting to embrace a new lifestyle, and for me, a new career. After literally stumbling upon Young Living Essential Oils in September 2017, we have been on a radical journey. My eyes have been opened to the toxins I have been putting onto and into my body and my family through detergents, fabric conditioners, scented candles, synthetic fragrances, shampoos, shower gels, cosmetics and more. Needless to say, the more I have learned the more horrified I have become, and the more determined I have been to make a change.

Now that I know better, I can do better.

Every momma wants to do the best for her family. The problem is that many of us don’t even realise the dangers we have in and around our home on daily basis. Chemical laden products fill our cabinets, and exposure to chemicals┬ácan cause cancer, asthma, allergies, respiratory disease, eczema, digestive upsets, headaches, behavioural issues and more.

I am not trying to frighten you or guilt trip you. But I do want to educate you and empower you to make an informed choice. Essential Oils can replace every single chemical in your home. From your deodorant to your detergent, from your scented candle to your surface spray. No longer do your babies have to crawl around on floors that have been washed with chemicals, absorbing them through their delicate skin. No longer do you need to rely on candles to fragrance your home with a cloud of petrochemicals and synthetic perfume. No longer do you need to have chemicals against on your body all day long because they were washed with fabric conditioner. No longer do you have to accept being unwell, low in mood, low in immune function.

Essential oils WORK. They are the lifeblood of the plant that regulate, repair and restore. What the oils do to support plants, they can also do for us.

Essential oils support our bodies on a cellular level, to help our body systems to do what they were designed to do.

They can help bring us on or above the wellness line, which means we are healthy and happy, not sick or suffering.

Do you want to sleep well? There is an oil for that.

Do you want to reduce anxiety? There is an oil for that.

Do you want to breathe easier through the seasons? There is an oil for that.

Do you want to boost your immune system? There is an oil for that.

I am so amazed by the power of these little oils and I want to share it with everyone I know. If you want to change your life, change your health and change your home then I urge you to get your hands on these oils.
