I pre-ordered Young Living’s NEW Premium Starter Kit about a month ago, as it was pre-launched to their members only. Let me tell you… I am so stinkin’ excited!!

It’s beyond beautiful! Young Living really knocked it out of the park! The thought and design that went into this… the upgrades… this is THE most amazing collection!

My dog had a “episode”

RosiePosieSee this sweet dog. Her name is Rosie (aka Rosie Posie) and she’s been with us one year this month. Rosie is a purebred Australian Shepherd and she turned 10 yrs old this past January. Her previous owner passed away and the daughter worked too many hours and didn’t feel it was right for Rosie to be alone all day. It was a fluke that I came across the rescue post… or was it? I like to think it was meant to be! The decision to adopt a senior pet is one of the best we’ve ever made! Yes, that’s my plug for pet adoption/rescue! Do it if you can!

Back to what I was saying… yesterday Rosie walked, or should I say, wobbled into the kitchen and appeared disoriented and scared. I knew instantly she was having “convulsion” activity. We’ve seen this before. Over 15 yrs ago we had a retriever named Zeke that suffered from this. I’ve learned alot since then!

I instantly asked my daughter to grab my Frankincense Essential Oil.  I don’t know if I applied it right, but it worked! I put several drops in my hands and rubbed it on her rear paws. Then as I laid on the floor with her I put my hand near her nose so she would gently inhale the oil fragrance. I had my hand about 6 to 8 inches away as I know a dog’s nose is super sensitive. She tolerated it surprisingly well, in fact, I believe it calmed her down in addition to stopping the convulsing.

Why did I use Frankincense? 

Well, I’ve studied essential oils for a year now… the same length of time I’ve been with Young Living. Frankincense is known as “the big guns”. What a power house of an oil! I have several reference books and have studied at great length. I suggest you do the same!

I have many reference books. If you would like to know what books I refer to, please contact me.

And why did I apply Frankincense to her paws?

When essential oils are applied with pressure to the reflex (or vita-flex) points, electrical impulses are released. These impulses carry the essential oils up the nerve pathway and into specific areas of the body. This in turn releases energy to support the systems of the body. (Looking at this Vita Flex chart I now notice the spot  for application concerning the brain. Rosie got all points yesterday.)

Vita-Flex points work for us humans too! Have a runny nose? Apply a few EO’s to your feet, focusing on the toes! Crazy? I know! But it works!!

In my studies on Frankincense I have learned it is the Essential Oil of choice for any kind of brain disorder. What a fascinating oil that God has given us!!

Young Living Frankincense Essential Oil
Young Living’s Frankincense

Frankincense has a molecular makeup that includes sesquiterpenes, that are able to cross the blood/brain barrier. These sesquiterpenes stimulate the limbic system of the brain and other glands within the brain, promoting memory and releasing emotions. (This oil has also been a huge relief for me concerning my own emotional needs!) Frankincense slows down and deepens the breath.

The therapeutic properties of Frankincense oil are antiseptic, astringent, carminative, cicatrisant, cytophylactic, digestive, diuretic, expectorant, sedative, expectorant and more.

You can do your own research on Frankincense. Personally, I only use and recommend Young Living Essential Oils (YL’s is proven to be the highest frequency because of their Seed to Seal process! Essential oils are not all the same! Don’t buy that lie!) because of their integrity and commitment to purity. Visit Seed to Seal to learn more…. and you’ll see why I will use nothing but Young Living! “Seed to Seal” – It’s not just a slogan.

Young Living’s latest blog post about essential oils and pets: Essential Oils and Pets: A Quick How-To

As for Rosie’s activity we witnessed yesterday… my plan is to apply the Frankincense a few times a week, maybe every other day… and wait and see. I’ll keep you posted as to if she has one again… or maybe she won’t?

Rosie – you are only 10 yrs old and we love you so much!  We knew our time would be limited with you from day one, but know this… we will do our best to keep you healthy so you can enjoy your golden years to the fullest.

I make soup!

That’s what I do! I make soup! Little inside family joke there.

I’m no baker by any means. I mean, I can bake cookies, cupcakes, basic desserts… but it’s really not my calling nor do I care do do it! Weird I know. (My poor husband… his mother is a baker supreme!! Sorry honey!) For my own personal health, I’m actually thankful baking is not my forte’. But… I do make a mean soup, so my family says. I can’t recall the exact conversation in our house one day… but my reply was, “I make soup!” My husband and daughter cracked up… and so the phrase stuck.

potSo many will ask for a recipe, but it’s really hard for me to share because I don’t follow any given recipe. My soups are never the same soup twice! I have a BIG red 12 qt pot… and in my head I know I need about 3 lbs of meat (if I add meat) 2 qts beans, 3-4 qts broth, 4-5 large carrots, 1 large onion, then I just “eyeball” the rest. I just use what I have on hand, or follow a basic base recipe (broth or tomato base) and often throw in leftovers. Add whatever veggies you like! You can’t go wrong. I truly think soup is the perfect meal. For those who think they can’t do this… YES YOU CAN! Soup is so easy, so versatile… you can’t mess it up!

Note: I cook gluten-free for the hubby, but we all follow the diet for the most part. Want to thicken your soup without flour? You can use corn starch (Use organic/non-gmo… it’s available!) You can stir in a can of refried beans if it’s bean based, or use your hand blender and mash it up a bit, especially if it has beans or potatoes in it. This soup I did not thicken, but adding the cheese & half & half did give it the consistency I was going for.

This week’s soup: Turkey & Bean (Gluten free too!)

  • 3 lbs local raised ground turkey (Love my farmer’s market!)
  • 2 jars Randals mixed beans (These are NON GMO!)
  • 3 qts broth (Your own or use organic chicken or veggie broth from store)
  • 1 8oz Organic Tomato soup or sauce. (I used what I had on hand.)
  • 3-4 cups frozen corn
  • 4 large diced carrots
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 drop Young Living Rosemary or Thyme EO (optional! I ONLY use YLEO’s)
  • Season – I use REAL or Himalayan salt, pepper, whatever floats your boat.
  • Cheese of your choice
  • 1 cup or so of half & half (optional)

Brown turkey with onion & carrots. Drain. Add broth, beans, seasoning. Simmer then grate cheese in. I used smoked cheddar. I added the half & half at the end because I wanted the soup to have some creamy, cheesy goodness. Done! Soup’s on!

Turkey & Bean

Hello world!

This is my very first blog post! I have said for a couple years now that I wanted to blog, but for some odd reason never got around to it. Well… here I go! I hope you will find this page a blessing. As you can see I am with Young Living, a company I absolutely adore! I’ve been using their products for one whole year now. My entire family loves YLEO’s!  We live in Michigan and to go one entire year without OTC’s is a miracle in itself! We thank the Lord for this company coming into our lives. Not only health wise, but for the financial aspect of it as well. What a blessing!

Since this is my first post, I’ll keep it brief. My favorite oil you ask? Why… it’s Thieves Essential Oil blend! Every household should have this one!! Apply to your kiddos feet to boost immunity. I make hand sprays for all my family members. Did you know Thieves FAR OUT PERFORMS the gel hand sanitizer you’ve probably been using for years? Yes, it’s true!!

Here’s a greahandspray1t hand spray recipe you can make easily, and very affordably! This is a recipe you can modify easily. I actually order the 1 oz spray bottles from Amazon, and use the same amount of drops of Thieves. I like the stronger fragrance of Thieves. I also add a tsp of Aloe or Fractionated Coconut oil. And for a sweet added touch, about 6 drops of Orange Essential Oil.

Positively lovely.. and it WORKS!! 

 

Thought I’d add this pic.. which clearly shows the effectiveness of Thieves essential oil compared to Lavender, Peppermint, and your average everyday hand sanitizer. Make the switch! Get some Thieves!
