The only cleaner we use in our home.
Did you know the air in our homes can be more polluted than the air in big cities?
Between the cleaners we use, the candles we burn, the wallflowers and air fresheners we have going continually we are breathing in a constant flood of chemicals.
Why do you think asthma, allergies and all of those breathing issues are on the rise?
Have you ever thought about what you’re breathing in at home? What you’re allowing your family to breathe in?
What would happen if we ditched all of that? Less runny noses? Less coughing? Less sneezing? Less headaches?
Last summer after my mom’s cancer diagnosis I did an overhaul of our home. If it had toxic chemicals in it proven to cause any sort of health issue I wanted it out of my house.
Our cleaners were one of the first to go. Now, I use this concentrate to make all of our cleaners. We use it on granite, tile, marble, wood, glass, furniture, all of it.
Now through May 31 Young Living is sending you a free 14.4 oz bottle of Thieves Household Cleaner and a glass spray bottle with the purchase of your first premium starter kit. That bottle lasts me 3-4 months.
Know better, do better. Just one step at a time.

When we moved from OKC it was really tough on me. I left a city I loved, a job I adored, and a constant circle of friends I cherished.
I don’t talk about it much but it was probably the closest I’ve ever been to depressed (if not actually depressed).
Then we became foster parents and I felt even more secluded. Most of my friends didn’t have kids and the ones that did, tried their best to understand the foster care system but even I didn’t understand it as a foster parent. It’s not something you can get unless you’re in it or you’ve done it. And even then, all cases are different.
But y’all, if I would have known oils and this community had existed, those years would have looked completely different. Instead of trudging through them behind the scenes, I would have had oils to help support me and a community who could educate me while also walking through the same things.
Now I get to help families find ways to help support them. I get to educate people on how essential oils really work and how we can make our homes safer in a community of like minded people.
Doing that allows me purchase our products with money I earned helping others. If this is what network marketing is all about I wish I would have known earlier. I wish I would have known the 180 this could make in our home. I wish I would have known these people then.
Community is so important and as someone who always had it, not having it made me realize that. Whatever or whoever comprises your community, don’t ever take it for granted. And if you don’t have community, we would love to have you in ours 💛
Just feeling pretty grateful after a night spent talking oils and dreams. Thanks @alexajhughes & @melissa.truitt ❤️

This back and forth weather is not helping us transition smoothly from one season to the next.
We spent almost the entire weekend outside and we are all showing signs of that today.
Runny noses, raspy voices, and little coughs all from springtime cold, rainy, warm weather.
This is one of our favorite and most used oils.
The Kidscents line is already diluted so I popped a roller top on the bottle and carry it around with us wherever we go. We roll it on the ends of the twins’ noses, down their necks and onto their chests. We paired it with a little RC today.
Today I’m thankful that I feel empowered as a momma. We rolled oils, drank Ningxia, and did a DIY chest rub all before school. I’m not sure what we did before oils became a lifestyle, before YL entered our lives.
Know better, do better; and teach those babes how to do it along the way too ✌🏽

Today I have the privilege of celebrating my 4th Mother’s Day. And just like each year before, it’s special and unique.
2016 I became a mom one month before Mother’s Day. I became a mom for the first time to kids that weren’t mine. I was called mommy for the first time by kids that would only call me that for a short period in their lives. I celebrated that holiday but hesitantly because I knew I probably wouldn’t be there mom forever.
2017 was a confusing year. I celebrated Mother’s Day again but with different kids I’d become momma to a month prior. Kids that I hoped would call me momma their whole lives. But I wasn’t a new mom, I’d been a mom before. So I didn’t just have 2 kids, I’d been a mom to 4. When we were celebrated at church, I sat next to the mom of my first kids knowing only one year prior, I was also their mom on Mother’s Day. See, confusing.
2018, my first Mother’s Day celebrated as a mom with children who shared my last name. My kids. My kids who wouldn’t leave. But, I share them with another mom. A mom who chose to give them life even though she chose to not be a part of it. She made choices that led to them being part of a system where they had no choice of who they ended up with. But she still chose life for them and without her, I wouldn’t have them. My first Mother’s Day as an adoptive mom who shares this holiday with another mom. And then also, the kids who made me a mom are still there. They won’t ever not be there.
2019. This year. I think the first year it’s a little less confusing. I’m a momma. I’ve been a mom for a little over 3 years; even if each of those years has looked a little different. I have the privilege and honor of that title; even if it was to both forever kids and temporary kids.
I am so blessed. I’m so grateful; even though it won’t always be easy to explain what this day means to me. To all my momma friends who have mixed emotions on this day too, know that I get it. 💛
