Super B…super Me!

Not too long ago someone asked me how I could possibly have so much energy with all that I do?  Working from home, homeschooling my children, pursuing this healthier version of myself and going to 3-4 TRX classes a week, running, multiple activities at church, and of course taking care of my children and running a household!  You know, we pursue and do everything that the Lord puts in front of us.  Have you heard that saying that the Lord will never give you more than you can handle?  Many times I question that!  (I think we all have our moments)  I took the time to really think about her question before I responded.  It took me a few minutes to realize that ever since I started taking better care of myself, and taking Super B every morning, my life doesn’t seem so busy.  It doesn’t seem like it’s more than I can handle because I have the energy to handle it!

Super B is a comprehensive source of the B vitamins essential for good health, like thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, B12, biotin, and folic acid.  It even includes minerals that aid in the assimilation and metabolism of B vitamins.  I realized that even though I was working hard to eat a healthier diet, getting a better source of B vitamins really gave me the energy I needed to “handle it all” so to speak.  🙂  Now I don’t go a day without it!

DIY Foaming Hand Soap

Awhile back I purchased this awesome bottle of Thieves foaming hand soap from Young Living.  I fell in love with this powerhouse soap and wanted to continue using it.

Being that I LOVE all my essential oils and products SO much, sometimes I like to do a few things to pinch some pennies to redirect fund for more oils and products from Young Living.  Hence, making my own Thieves Foaming Handsoap.  I’m sure there are MANY recipes floating around out there, but here’s mine!

This stuff is AMAZING!!!

So…we had a few housekeeping issues today that I was able to take care of with a few drops of Young Living Lemon Oil.  This is an AWESOME way to take care of things in your home without having to use toxic cleaners and chemicals.  Plus it’s easy!  And everyone likes easy, right?

My littlest had gotten ahold of my middle child’s dry erase workbook and had scribbled all over every page!  I don’t know when he did this, but it was long enough ago that it wouldn’t wipe off.  I even tried a wet paper towel and it made no difference.  Then I added 1 drop of lemon oil and it totally came clean with very little elbow grease of my own added!  I just wiped it down again with a clean paper towel and WHA-LAH!  Ready to be used again!

Then there was this foam sticker, stuck on the floor for ages.  (Well about mother’s day I think)  It was a foam heart sticker that somehow didn’t stick to my child’s project, but was practically glued onto my kitchen floor!  I just dropped a couple drops of lemon oil, let it sit for a minute and scrubbed it off!  All gone and I didn’t have to use any of those chemical cleaners!

DIY Carpet Refresher!

Stated simply…I have a dog and 3 small children, so this stuff is amazing in our happy little home!

It is a simple recipe for those who are just starting out or who want to do something quick and fulfill that DIY bug we all get from time to time.  🙂

Fill a mason jar ½ way with baking soda.  Add 8 drops of essential oil of your choice add lid and shake.  Open back up, fill the jar most of the rest of the way with baking soda and then 8 more drops of essential oil.  Shake again to distribute the oils.  Sprinkle all over carpet lightly, then vacuum.  It smells heavenly!

I change up what oils I use with whatever mood I’m in the day I make it…OR sometimes stinky, wet dog makes me change up which oils I add to freshen things up.

What would be your favorite oils to add to your happy home?

DIY Thieves Bathtub Scrub!

Ditch Toxic Cleaners fb cvr

I’m a little embarrassed that my bathtub was this bad, BUT, it gave me a great excuse to use this recipe! Take 1cup of baking soda, 5 drops lemon oil, 5 drops thieves oil, and 1 capful of thieves cleaner. Mix together. You can add a little bit of water or a little more cleaner if you need to. You want it to make a paste. Grab a scrub brush and spread it on. Let it set on the surface for 2-3 minutes, then scrub away! I was amazed how well this worked…no bleach or other harsh chemicals were needed! Plus I love the smell of Thieves Cleaner!  Results like this make me love the Young Living Lifestyle even more.
