Hey there my blogger friends! Sorry I dropped off the face of the earth for a bit there. Between technical difficulties and 2 more horse camps I haven’t been able to get on my blog AT ALL.

But, I have big news! As I’m sharing all my recipes and concoctions with you on my blog, I am also going to be selling my creations on Etsy for those that maybe don’t have the time or ability to do it themselves. I’m really excited about the idea of sharing my work through Etsy, so please do me a favor and check out my shop as well as sharing it with your friends!

You can find my shop at-

It is small right now but I am slowly adding more and more listings as I am able to get pictures, etc.

Well, I’m off to try a new soap recipe that I will hopefully be sharing with you if all goes well!

Thanks for reading, and again please check out my shop and let me know what you think!

Essential Rewards

Everyday Oils Essential Oil Collection

Alright, I promised last week a post on Essential Rewards, so here it is!!

When you become a wholesale member with Young Living you not only get discounted product, but also the opportunity to participate in Essential Rewards. 

Essential Rewards is an auto-ship program that requires you to spend at least 50 PV (PV = “point value” and is usually close to the dollar equivalent) on product monthly. This is easy to do as Young Living supplies products like deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, etc, that you would be spending $50 on anyway. Young Living also has different Essential Rewards packs that you can put on auto-ship, like the Everyday Oils set, ART skincare, core supplements, and more! You can change you auto-ship order, too, so you can try new products each month.

Now here’s the good part… By participating in Essential Rewards, you get discounted shipping rates, AND earn credit for free product!! In your first 6 months of being on the Essential Rewards auto-ship, you get 10% back in credit for the PV of your order (remember, the term PV is usually dollar equivalent). That means if you spent 100 PV, you would get 10 PV in credit. In your second 6 months participating in Essential Rewards you get 15% back in credit. After you have spend a year in Essential Rewards, you get 20% back EACH MONTH in credit!! This is such a great way to save up for more expensive products or oils that you wouldn’t normally be able to afford. I am saving my credit up to splurge at Christmas time which will be my 1 year mark in Essential Rewards.

Should you choose to build a business with Young Living and sell product, Essential Rewards also offers special promotions and bonuses for distributors.

Hopefully this post helped you better understand this great program Young Livings offers.

If you would like to become a whole sale member with Young Living and start earning credit by getting on the Essential Rewards program, click here and choose your starter kit. Signing up for Young Living can be a little overwhelming, but this blog post I wrote recently should answer any questions. As always, with an questions you can send me an email at

So why should I become a Young Living Independent Distributor?

“Why should I become a Young Living Independent Distributor?”

This is a question I have been asked a good bit recently. The answer is a bit lengthy, and there are SO many reasons to join Young Living, but it can be summarized with this answer..

“So you can live well and save money.”

I think that anybody would say health and wealth are major objects of consideration in day to day life. Young Living essential oils heal your body from the inside out. I have been using the oils for less than a year and I have seen them relieve upset stomachs, simple colds, extreme flu symptoms, relieve painful bumps and bruises, clear up skin conditions, and heal cuts with minimal scarring. Young Living oils are a fantastic natural way to heal your body. 

Young Living oils are also a great asset if you are interested in natural skin and hair care! That is actually my primary use for them (you may have noticed if you have read any of my past blog posts!). I love my new clear and glowing skin, and thick shiny hair!!

But here’s the best part.. By joining Young Living I am able to receive these oils at an amazing discounted rate as well as being able to participate in special promotions. Young Living offers several different starter kits to introduce you to the oils and the company. The cheapest one includes 2 oils (lavender and peppermint) and is only $40, AND it comes with a $40 off diffuser coupon! If you use that coupon, you are basically getting the kit for free!



Being a little skeptical, I chose this kit to get started. In hindsight, I really wish I had gotten the “Start Living with Everyday Oils” kit. This kit includes 9 oils: Frankincense, Lemon, Peppermint, Lavender, Thieves, Purification, Peace & Calming, Valor, and Panaway as well as all the educational information and $40 diffuser included in the “Start Living” kit. This kit is priced at $150 which is a great price considering it includes 9 different oils!


As a Young Living Independent Distributor, you aren’t required to “sell” anything unless you choose to. Instead you just get great discounts on premium quality oils, not to mention being able to participate in Essential Rewards and earn free product and discounted shipping rates. I’ll be blogging about Essential Rewards tomorrow, so stay tuned!

To give Young Living a try, click here. Make sure “Independent Distributor” is selected, and select your starter kit below! Email me at with any questions. I promise you won’t regret it.

My Favorite EVERYTHING Cleaner!!

photo (1)After several tries, I think I have nailed an EVERYTHING cleaner recipe that is easy and works for me!! By everything, I mean everything!!! Windows, sinks, counters, bathtubs, walls…. the list goes on and on.

I was using a vinegar/water/essential oil mixture as my all-purpose cleaner and a separate cleaner with alcohol for windows and mirrors, but that seemed like a waste when the alcohol will just add to the cleaning and disinfectant power of the all-purpose cleaner! There’s some debate on the safety of using alcohol, so if you have an issue with using it just make up the difference with water and in my experience it will still get the job done.

The best part is, you should have all these ingredients on hand already! It’s so easy!!


Mix equal parts of water, rubbing alcohol, and white vinegar in a spray bottle.

Add about 10 drops of essential oil (see below for suggestions) and a squirt of Dawn dish detergent.

Shake… spray… wipe… breathe in the aroma from the essential oils and stand in awe of your super clean… EVERYTHING!!!

This has given me the best streak free shine on every window and mirror I have tried it on, as well as cut through lots of greasy grime on counter tops. The addition of essential oils totally cuts the vinegar smell and adds to the cleaning power.

There are so many options when it comes to essential oils to add. Here’s a few recommendations…

Tea Tree Oil is great for killing germs and disinfecting. It has a pretty strong odor that people either love or hate it seems. As for me, I tolerate it! Either way, it’s great for safe disinfecting.

Lemon Oil and Orange Oil are great cleaning citrus oils. I can’t get enough of the citrus smell and how CLEAN everything smells when I’m done!! They are both great at cutting grease, and you get some germ killing benefits with the lemon as well.

Peppermint Oil is another germ killing oil. It sure makes thing sparkle and shine, as well as leaving a fresh minty scent! As an added bonus, it’s a natural pest deterrent. Apparently they don’t like the scent as much as I do.

 These are just a few of the many oils you can use to clean your home. There are some people who use nothing but water and essential oils to clean, they are that powerful!
