Not Quite Granola- Mom Hacks that will make your life easier!

I don’t know about you but this school year has kept my head spinning ! While trying to find that “balance” in life, I am always looking for ways to make this momma’s  CRAZY life a little easier!  I have made a list of some of some of my new favorites (some oily, some not) that help me keep my sanity in this crazy thing called life!

Develop a Calendar System: Like many families, my husband and I keep busy with work and our girls after-school activities. I have found that our new lifesaver is our Google Calendar. With this Live calendar you and your hubby (or 16 year old) can add any events as they come up. This also helps with those nights that you know you won’t have time to cook and you can meal plan ahead of time! Meal planning for us is looking in the freezer (:

Google Calendar

Google Docs ( a safe place for all of your files): If your workplace hasn’t introduced you to this place of awesomeness, you are in for a treat! Go ahead and create a Google Account and all of your “files” can be stored in one place and wait…….you can access it almost anywhere if you can get on the internet! I am learning more each day! You can create files, folders, documents, online surveys….the list goes on and on! Hop on and you won’t regret it!

Google Drive

Need labels?!: I mean seriously!! Who has been hiding this little gem from me for ALL of these years! If you are a label making fool like me… you would want to know that you can make your labels on Avery Labels! They will even print projects for you and mail them to you?! I can’t tell you as a teacher and as a business leader, how easy this has made my life!

Instant Ink: This leads me to my next time saver!! Hold on to your seat for this one!! Did you know that you can go to Instant Ink, sign up for a monthly subscription depending on how many pages you print and they will send the ink cartridges to you!!! SAY WHAT?!!No more running out of ink in the middle of a project !You can thank me later for this one!(:

Breakfast Energy Protein Balls: Make these Breakfast Balls ahead of time so you won’t be running around like a crazy mom in the morning! Your kids will thank you for this mouth full of deliciousness! Even your picky orders will find this appealing!

Roller Balls (my best friend): Or that’s what I call them (: Sometimes you need ONE of these rollers on before, during, after work and sometimes you need them ALL! This jewel was a gift that keeps on giving! I can’t leave home without it!

Disclaimer: (Cause you know I got to put it here!) I am not a medical professional, I do not and cannot diagnose anything. Use these recipes as they suit you and your family. People with sensitive skin are advised to use a higher dilution ratio. The below recipes are intended for adults unless specifically stated for children. When using Essential oils on children please consult the proper reference materials.

Always use a glass roller bottle for essential oils! A metal ball is recommended with citrus oils because they eat the plastic! Young Living provides us one in our starter kit.

Choose a carrier oil (not olive oil for this one)My favorite carrier oil is :

  • fractionated coconut oil – coconut oil broken down to remain liquid and last longer. Find what your favorite is!
  • Tip-
    Essential Oils if stored correctly will last indefinitely. BUT once you mix them with a carrier oil in your roller bottle they take on the expiry date of the carrier oil.
  • Get your Rollers Here:5 ml Rollers

Try rolling these on your wrist, back of the neck, and or on the bottoms of your feet! Don’t be afraid to use use these throughout the day !(:

Inspiration Roller Blend:

  • 10 drops of Inspiration Oil/top off with Coconut Oil

Focus Roller:

  • 10 drops of  YL’s Clarity Oil
  • 5 drops of YL’s  Peppermint Oil/top off with Coconut Oil

Rest Roller:

  • 5 drops of Cedarwood
  • 5 drops of Lavender
  • 5 drops of Valor oil/ top off with Coconut Oil

I’ve saved the BEST for last especially since this mom is about to hit the sheets! For those of you that know me…know that I love to snuggle in my bed and I have been called a mamaw for more that 1/2 of my life(: Which leads to me to my next favorite….

This little buddy has been a member of our family since June and now we don’t sleep without him (or at least our youngest doesn’t)! This it Topsy Turtle. This little cuddle buddy provides the best comfort for our little ones! Order yours here:

Nelly Packs 

This is where I wish I had a scratch and sniff screen because the moment you smell this little guy, you will want one of your own!! Think of warm vanilla with a hint of Lavender….

Sweet Dreams and Have a Blessed Week!

Back to School Ready

Back to school

Ready or not school is here! Along with all the new school supplies, teachers, backpacks and clothes also involves tons of germs.  Although we can not avoid germs all together we can take extra precautions this school season to help stay above the wellness line.  If you have been apart of our oily group for a while then you already know our obsession with thieves essential oil, thieves cleaner and household products.  So it will be no surprise that our go to, must have, for back to school wellness would be no other than thieves vitality essential oil.

Here are some ways to use this oil to help you along your wellness journey this school year:
-apply it to the bottom of your feet before heading out the door
-add some drops to a vegetable capsule and take internally
-add a drop your Ninxgia in the morning
-add a drop to your morning oatmeal for an extra boost and spice

Here’s to staying healthy this school year!

Living well in Him,

Transfer Buying=Smarter Buying

What if I told you that my family doesn’t spend more on Young Living Products, We’ve just figured out how to Transfer our Buying. So…….What exactly does that mean???

I made a list of all of the things that I shop for at my favorite two stores and I gradually started buying the products from Young Living. Not only are the products better and healthier for my family, they are also shipped straight to my door!

Wait it gets better….. are you on essential Rewards? If you answered yes, than you earn points on things that you buy which you can cash in at a later date to get FREE product??!! Best Auto-shipping ever!! You pay less for shipping and earn points on most of your  necessities.

If you are like me and have transferred your buying, it can be a bit overwhelming when you look at ALL of the products that Young Living has to offer: oils, hygiene products, supplements, cleaning supplies and now make-up!!! I had to come up with a plan and why not use my new LOVE ……Google Docs!! If you are a teacher like me, you are or probably will be very familiar with this program.  I love making lists so I made a couple that will hopefully make your buying less stressful and more organized.

Don’t worry, the other products will be added into a list very shortly! This should help you get started!

We are now on a 4 month Rotation. Too many goodies to go around!

Toxic Free Tuesday

thieves laundry pic

Todays product is Thieves laundry detergent!  Boy am I glad this product is back in stock, since it is the only true toxic free laundry detergent that I have been able to find, unless of course you make your own!  I am super impressed with people who are able to accomplish this!  Here are some interesting facts for you if you are looking to become chemical free.  Stay away from products with these ingredients: fragrance, triclosan, phthalates, sodium lauryle sulfate (SLS), aluminum, DEA/TEA, Talc, Parabens (this is a big one found in almost all beauty products.  You can look up any of these ingredients and find many health risks. If you would like more information, my go to are always the Chemical Home Free books!  Let’s be chemical free for our families.  See you next Tuesday for Toxic Free Tuesday!

Living well in Him,
