Oils + Babies part 2 

Moving on from Pregnancy I wanted to share some oils that were helpful to me during labor. 

In my hospital room my sister was my saving grace, she made sure the diffuser was full and always running. My favorite combo was Stress Away and Valor! Seriously couldn’t have made it without those two! A cool washcloth applied to my forehead was oh so nice too, I had my sister add lavender to the washcloth for an extra calming effect. In early labor at home I applied Sclaressence to my ankles to help with contractions and it seemed to help alleviate some of the pain in the beginning of it all. After delivery and the few next days I drank all the Ningxia! 2-4 ounces a day is all you need and I definitely appreciated the extra energy and mental clarity it provided! Love it! I feel like it helps with milk supply too so keep that in mind if you’re needing to up your supply. I started using Progessence Plus about 10 days after giving birth and I honestly can say it has kept me fairly level considering all the hormone changes my body is going through. Progessence Plus supports your hormones with wild yam extra which is a natural progesterone. It also contains, balsam fir, Frankincense and a few other emotional supporting oils, it smells divine, light and woodsy. 

I’m so thankful I was able to have these oils apart of my birthing experience, they helped me so much and I hope they can do the same for you! Have a question? Feel free to comment or email me with any of your questions! 🌿❤️

Oils + Babies part 1

I am going to share a few ways that I love to use essential oils on my babe and around my babe. I will post new tips throughout a few posts so be sure to check back often!

First up, oils + pregnancy…


These were some of my favorites during my pregnancy and I found huge emotional help from Joy and Valor! Claraderm spray for perineal care…you will want this if you don’t want to  tear. You’re welcome. I mixed Gentle baby and coconut oil and applied to my belly everyday, lifesaver when it comes to avoiding stretch marks! Last but not least, Ningxia Red, everyday I took my 2 oz. If I needed an afternoon pick me up I would take a second 2 oz. shot. I hope you find some of this helpful along your wellness journey with pregnancy and oils.

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

As I approach the end of my pregnancy it’s very bitter sweet.  I cannot wait to meet our little guy but I know this next phase of life will be a whirlwind adventure.  He will grow up too fast and I won’t be able to protect him from every little thing like I can now.  Regardless, I am beyond excited!

I wanted to share with you a little about why I chose to do a home based business and why I chose Young Living.  It’s Monday and I know some of you out there are hating life because of your job! That was me a few months ago!

My number one reason for starting my business was our baby.  I knew I wanted to be a stay at home mom but I still needed an income. The opportunity Young Living provides is so generous that everyone has the opportunity at an income with no ceiling.  The products they produce are simply put, the BEST!  That’s why this is easy for me to be passionate about helping other mamas gain time and financial freedom with YL. I don’t sell oils that’s the beauty of it all. I introduce, educate and lead, you purchase your own oils through Young Living. Easy peasy!  As women, we naturally tell our friends about our favorite products, restaurants etc. I knew this would be an easy thing form me to do since I was already using the best products out there and I would be telling others about it anyways.  My hope is that if you are looking for something better for your family whether it’s removing toxins from your home and lifestyle or you are looking for it all, a life detox from toxins, time freedom, financial freedom, to gain a community of encouragement and support through it all then I’m ready to help you!  Purchasing my starter kit was the easiest thing I ever did and it’s been life changing! The fact that you can gain all of this with one little starter kit blows my mind,  and I’m truly thankful!  I would love to hear from you! Comment below or email me!!!

These are the days 

I’m ready to meet you and show you your new home little one. I know I’m going to miss these moments in life while I have you so close and near that I can feel your hiccups and feel your every move, but I also know how excited I am to see you. I want to see you smile, yawn and sneeze. I want to give you kisses and hugs. I can’t wait to hold you, so whenever you’re ready I am too. Never in a million years would I have guessed I’d be a mama! But I’m over the moon excited to be your mama. 

Think Dirty….the app! 


Do you guys have the app Think Dirty?If not you should get it and start scanning your bathroom products and cleaning products around your home and see what it measures up to being clean and safe for your family! Umm…I was SHOCKED when I started scanning all my make up and cleaners. That’s when I made the decision to ditch and switch and do my best at trying to eliminate chemicals around my family.

+ first up, download the app on your phone “think dirty” and start scanning things in your home. You might even think they are safe/clean/organic…but let me tell you (sadly) marketing is tricky and you will soon be SHOCKED what you are putting on your bodies!

+ next, you think okay what should I do now?

Think THIEVES! We use all the Thieves line and let me tell you that as a new mama soon- I am GRATEFUL to know exactly whats going on our bodies and that it is truly safe.

+Thieves Laundry Soap:

-Thieves Laundry Soap is plant-based and is as pure and natural as a detergent is going to get—plus it contains the most powerful essential oils on the planet that not only make it smell amazing, but really help to get things clean. I mean, I use Thieves for cleaning literally everything in my house, and now they’ve made the best detergent I’ve ever tried out of the stuff.

This little compact bottle does 64 loads of laundry, instead of your typical 32. It’s 6x concentrated, so a little goes a long way. I love that it’s not so cumbersome like those giant jugs of detergent, and doesn’t take up a ton of space in your laundry room. And IT. WORKS. Stains come out, whites don’t get dingy, dirty husband clothes come out CLEAN. I can’t believe how well it works with only needing to use such a small amount.

+Thieves Household Cleaner

– Our favorite and most amazing all-in-one, clean, non-toxic cleaner (free this month in the promo!)……This one bottle will clean everything from your toilets to your car, your toys to your floors. And it’s highly concentrated, only needing one ounce for an entire spray bottle of water so it will last you forever!

+ Thieves Foaming hand soap- yep, you guess it…I have this at every single sink in my home. It smells amazing, cleans amazing and its safe for those precious little hands its washing!

+ Thieves Fruit & Veggie Spray

– Wash that produce and feel confident that you’re only getting the nutrients, NOT the bugs, dirt, or chemicals that might be on the outside! Plus, it doesn’t add any weird flavor or aftertaste to your delicious fruits.

+ Thieves Dish Soap- guess what it says on the bottle? “If swallowed, drink plenty of water…” -Safe, good product AND….it cleans amazing!

I literally took my weekly “grocery store” budget and made a shift to these products and will never.go.back.

Glowing Skin Roller 

Frankincense is known around the world for being so valuable that in Bible times it was considered to be worth more than gold!!! WOW! And how fortunate are we that it comes in the starter kit!?! It supports healthy smooth looking skin, has a grounding effect when inhaled which offers support emotionally and when taken internally has been know for its abilities to heal!

Copaiba is know for its anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties making it an excellent choice to apply to your face for troubled skin.

Tea tree is another cleansing and healing oil that all ladies should keep on hand for those pesky flare ups!

Here is one of my favorite roller combos for my face, apply at night or in the morning or both after you’ve washed your face! Enjoy!
