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- http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheLivingOilsProject

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!

My new toy- the Young Living Home Diffuser!!!

Got my essential rewards order in the mail yesterday (remind me to tell you about essential rewards soon!) and finally got my DIFFUSER!!!


I was (am) beyond excited!! This thing is so cool!! I made a video showing it off and how to use it, check it out below….

So by now you should be as fascinated by this contraption as I am. Sooooo COOL!!! And the options seem endless. Need to relax? Diffuse some Peace and Calming. Need to focus and get to work? Try Peppermint. Got a house full of sickies? Diffuse some Thieves to knock that out!! Bad odors getting you down? No worries, Purification is here to save the day!

Like I said, endless options.

  Your next question should be “How do I get a super duper cool Young Living Home Diffuser like you, Carolyn??!!!!”

I’m glad you asked.

There are 2 ways to get a super duper cool Young Living Home Diffuser like me.

First- you can click here, go to the product line, and order your diffuser at full price. Quick. Easy. Done.

Second- you can click here, select a starter kit, become a Young Living Independent Distributor, and receive a $40 off coupon for any diffuser + wholesale pricing.

Considering the most you have to spend on a starter package is $40.00, you are basically getting your money back with the $40 coupon, not to mention the GREAT wholesale prices. It’s a pretty sweet deal. There’s no pressure to sell anything as a distributor, but it makes it a whole lot easier to share the healing benefits of Young Living Essential Oils!

If you have any questions or comments on how you diffuse your Young Living essential oils, leave me a comment!!

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!
