If not, come on let’s really chat…

How I first found Essential Oils

I started using essential oils around the time my oldest pretty much stopped sleeping all together.  Thanks to my mother in law and mom for sharing their samples with me.

Desperate for any sort of sleep advice, I started to try essential oils.  I never was really consistent.  And they sat on my shelf for a long time.

Then my mom gifted me with the gift of becoming a distributor underneath her.   I was hesitant at first thinking I didn’t want to be part of a pozi scheme and spend extra money.

However this time was different.  I figured if I was going to really give Young Living Essential Oils a chance I needed to practice consistency and really try out the products.  I didn’t go crazy.  I waited each month to try something new.  I spent my time really looking into all that Young Living is, and have fallen in love with it.

I started to use essential oils daily and found myself loving every thing about them.  They are great for children, wonderful in dishes, great for the garden, helpful around the homestead.  Young Living isn’t just oils, it’s cleaning products, personal hygiene products, baby products, massage oils.  So many varieties of good, natural products to try.

I started to share with my girlfriends because I was truly enjoying this new green style of living.   I didn’t seek them out with the intention of them signing up underneath me, but they did, and it’s been so fun learning all things oils together.

Then they shared with a few friends.

It’s like a game of telephone with a paycheck.  You can opt in to purchase oils, but you don’t need to keep any in stock.

The thing about Young Living that I love is it sells itself.  It’s product driven.

Unlike most other MLM companies, Young Living products are consumable.  You can literally use essential oils in so many different ways in your life.

Part of our homesteading journey has been to live a more green life.

I use Young Living for cleaning products, supplements, for the kids, for the animals, I’ve even begun switching my makeup line over to Savvy Minerals by Young Living.

It’s such a versatile investment, Young Living Essential Oils can be used for so many purposes.  Not only can you make a little side cash.  But you can green up your lifestyle.

Do you actually make money?

After a few months I’m now consistently receiving a paycheck from Young Living.

It’s nice to have the extra cash, and always comes as bit of a surprise because I’m not actively selling anything.  I don’t have any extra oils in stock.  I only purchase what I use.  Like I said the product sells itself.

If you are interested in seeing actual $$$ you could potentially earn by selling Young Living take a look.

Adding Mini Cows to our Homestead

While I’ve been away taking a break from life.

I’ve acquired two of the sweetest mini cows.

IMG-6508.JPG

Ferdinand & Clarabelle.

They arrived home on November 8th.  I used an Essential Oil concoction with Lavender Essential Oil to make their ride a little less overwhelming.  They were after all both being removed from their Mama’s for the first time.  I will say they were pretty calm and relaxed considering.

To be honest for the months leading up to their arrival there was a phase where I begged and pleaded with my husband to reconsider the arrival of these mini cows.

Fast forward almost a month later and I couldn’t be more in love.  In a few years when they breed we will be able to get our own fresh daily milk.  I am excited at the idea of providing ourselves with a little more sustainability.

After a lot of research we decided on the Mini Belted Galloway  breed known for their hardiness since we happen to live in the arctic some days.  They are feed efficient, and naturally polled.  For the inexperienced that just means in simple terms the bull does not have horns naturally.

I’ll be honest the bull is in fact the sweetest.  He’s like an enormous dog with a hoarse raspy moooooo that loves apples and carrots.

Both greet me each day with such enthusiasm and the sweetest cow faces.

Clarabelle is a little more reserved, but being an introvert myself I don’t fault her one bit.  In time she will come around.

Part of our homesteading journey was to get animals that would give back to us in some way.  Provide us with a service.  For now they eat hay (and not that much I might add) and they help eat the green waste around our homestead.

I love that they aren’t full size.  It makes handling them, feeding them, and space requirements much easier to handle.  Considering I barely know a thing about cow ownership it’s going pretty flawless.  Even with a mild escape a few weeks back.

I would most definitely recommend adding mini cows to your homestead if you are considering it.

There is something so sweet and gentle about a mini cow.

 

How to naturally increase Iron absorption with skillet cooking

Symptoms of low Iron

  1. Unusual Tiredness
  2. Paleness
  3. Shortness of Breath
  4. Headache and Dizziness
  5. Heart Palpatations
  6. Dry & Damaged hair& skin
  7. Restless Legs (which can result in poor sleep)
  8. Brittle or spoon shaped fingernails
  9. More frequent infections
  10. Feeling anxious

These are just a few symptoms associated with low iron levels.

When EBE was about 2 years old we started consistently talking to the doctors about his inability to sleep.  He was always tired yet never slept.  We referred to a psychiatrist who talked about a lot of nonsense and pushed prescription medication.  Needless to say I got up and left in the middle of his prescription medication rant.

I did what mama’s do best and started researching and demanding blood work.

He did in fact have low iron levels which made sense considering I could barely get him to eat anything but a milk and graham cracker diet.

Fast forward to today.  I cook almost everything I can in a cast iron skillet.

Did you know a cast iron skillet has the ability to naturally increase your iron?

Scrambling eggs in a new iron skillet increased the iron content from 1.5 mg to almost 5mg

I will warn you that children under the age of three can in fact get to much iron, resulting in iron toxicity so I’d encourage you to speak with your Doctor or do you research beforehand.

Plus I think everything tastes better in the cast iron skillet.

 

Let’s talk anxiety, depression, and tummy issues

Today I wanted to introduce myself.  Talk tummy issues.  Anxiety, depression, so let’s just dive in.

I have always been what I considered healthy.  I’ve lifted weights for years.  Practice yoga more days than not.  But I’ve always suffered from intermittent anxiety and depression. I also suffer from an autoimmune disorder that can wreak havoc on my body at any give moment.   Recently I’ve noticed my stomach always feels in some sort of knot.  My kids are not the best sleepers.  They have some different sensory challenges, and I feel like more mornings than not I wake up with just an overall feeling of exhaustion.  It’s hard to be motivated throughout the day when you’re struggling with inner health.

I felt like I needed a change.  I didn’t want to stumble through life always making excuses for the issues my body feels daily.

So I decided to push myself out of my comfort zone.

Really give Young Living Essential Oils a chance.  See what their about.  I’ve always been skeptical of people selling things online.  But having recently just read

Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic

Book by Sam Quinones
I decided all the little things I’ve been feeling may actually have some truth to it.
When my youngest was diagnosed with Autism I was going through so much.  I felt alone, I felt like the unknown of her future was just too much for me to handle at that current moment.  I felt depressed.  I was exhausted.  My kids never slept in this phase.  SO I found myself seeking out my doctor where I found how simple it was to get a antidepressant/anti anxiety medication.
I remember the first day I took that pill how awful I felt.  I mean really awful.  I was sick to my stomach.  Falling asleep on the couch.  Things that were just not like me.  I felt like it had cut the edge of all the emotions I’d been facing and when I felt that I was ready to get off of it a year later I realized I had easily become physically addicted.  The withdrawls were painful.  The headache was unbearable.  So a few days later I started taking it again.
I really prayed about it.  And was so angry at myself for falling into the prescription drug trap so easily prescribed by doctors.
A month after my first attempt I decided to wean off my prescription.  You see nothing in my life had really changed.  My daughter of course still had autism.  I was still not getting any sleep, but I realized how dangerous it was getting for me to continue taking my prescribed antidepressant.  I didn’t want to walk through life numb.  And the withdrawls I faced were really unnerving.  SO I weaned off my pills for about two weeks and have never looked back.
I find that I still struggle from time to time, but that’s life right.  Nothing is perfect.  Moments are overwhelming.  God didn’t intend for us to be medicated through life.
So long story short!  I found myself truly giving oils a chance.  I fell in love with Young Living Essential Oils.  As cheesy as I feel sharing them with people I want them to see that there’s an alternative way to feeling healthy.
I started adding a drop or two of Lemon oil to my water first thing in the morning.  I noticed within 15 minutes of drinking it that knot in my stomach was gone.  So one glass turned to 3 a day.
lemon oils
I noticed mental clarity.  I noticed that it encouraged me to make healthier choices throughout the day.
I cut out caffeine.  And preworkout.
Preworkout was probably the most difficult for me.  I’ve used it for years and years to get through my workouts.
So I decided to step out of my comfort zone one more time and try out Young Living Ningxia Red.  Once in the morning before my workout and once in the evening.

I noticed an increase in energy but not a sloppy full feeling like a cup of coffee would give me.  Or a jittery tweaker high preworkout tends to give.  I won’t lie I did enjoy that extreme surge of energy.  But to be honest I don’t know half of the ingredients in any given preworkout I’ve purchased.
But with Ningxia Red by Young Living I noticed an increase in clean energy.
These are two of my favorite items for myself by Young Living.
If you are tired of feeling off.  Maybe you too struggle with stomach issues send me an email.
I’d be happy to share what I’ve learned.
