Essential Oils

Essential oils, you’ve heard about them – right? We started on our oily journey about 4 years ago and it’s been a game changer for us. Both my husband and I use them every day for a variety of purposes, which I’d love to share with you. We’re so happy to be on a chemical-free path, for our own health and for the health of our pets! Don’t get me wrong, we still love frozen pizza and for the life of me I can’t find an all-natural shampoo that is my jam, but we’re happy to have made changes where we can and I know every change is a step in the right direction.

I purchased a Young Living premium starter kit (which is a diffuser and all the most common oils) and when I opened the box of lovely oils, I smelled each one and then sat the box up on the bathroom shelf to look pretty for the next few weeks. I was scared to use them! Luckily, I found a wonderful community to join where I learned safety tips, how and why to use oils for support and in the process made a lot of friends to share life with, oil related and otherwise.

Every day there’s some oil action happening around here. I use lemon, lavender and peppermint every morning to wake me up and keep seasonal sniffles at bay. I diffuse purification to help our living smell nice when the dogs have been outside playing on a humid day (which is almost every day here in wet Florida). And we clean our home with the fabulous Thieves cleaner, which has enabled us to get rid of all the dangerous chemicals found in household cleaners. One step closer on that chemical-free path to a healthier lifestyle!
