Don't want to live the same year 75 times and call it a life?

Don't want to live the same year 75 times and call it a life?
I am ready, its time for change but every year I set new goals and every year...they don't happen. Sound familiar?

A new year is upon us and most of us are over 2020 but seriously thinking about the future. I have some great things for you to ponder about today and a surprise at the end of todays blog. 

First some facts....

IN the US 50% of the population set New Years Resolutions or goals and only 10% keep them. For many people 2020 has been very difficult with forced changes and uncertainty. 

Why do most  people give up on their goals leading to their dreams so easily?
  • Difficulty breaking old habits
  • Focusing on specific outcomes
  • Problems with purpose. 
Achieving new goals typically means there are old habits to break and new ones to develop. This was difficult for a lot of this year as we were clinging to old and familiar habits to create some kind of stability during the pandemic. Our habits are built into our memory-this is like auto pilot-we do the things without even having to think about them. It makes it easier for us to stick with what we know and challenging when trying to develop new habits. 

When we are focused too much on a specific outcome instead of the action steps-it is way to easy for us to quit. One example is someone who wishes to loose weight, they have a goal weight in mind-but as they step on the scale day after day and see no change-they want to give up. 

If you are like me (or most people) you have a busy life. Chances are you don't have a lot of time to spend on activities you enjoy AND definitely don't have time for things that are not interesting to you or bring you joy. If you do not feel personally connected to your goal and it is not meaningful enough, its easier to give up. 

“No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again.” ~Buddha
How to slay your goals:

  • Find and follow your purpose, avoid focusing on a specific outcome.  For example, if you want to loose 40 pounds-don't focus on "loosing the weight" or the number. Make your focus about making healthier choices, incorporating exercise for vitality, energy and health. Focus on the activities and how they will make you feel, this way you will stick to the action steps that will lead you to your goal. Same with-wanting to be debt free-don't focus on the amount of debt, create a manageable plan that you can follow, month by month. 
  • Set SMART goals with a focus on realistic and achievable. Again if we are talking weight loss maybe you have a goal of walking on the treadmill 30 minutes, 4 days per week. I intend to drink 4 glasses of water daily. Focus on the realistic action step that YOU can do. I intend to use $100 per month to pay on credit card xyz.
  • Connect and engage with like minded people. Community is HUGE when you are striving to better your life by working on goals to create the desired dream life you want. You need like minded people who will cheer you on, support you and encourage you to keep going when you want to quit. Sharing your goals with someone and having them share their goals with you helps you (and them) stay motivated AND you have accountability. 
"Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go. They merely determine where you start."  ~Nido Qubein
It does not matter what has happened in your past, what goals you tried and failed. It does not matter your goals, your desired dream life, your bank account or your current circumstance. 

You DO need to take an honest assessment of where you are and where you want to go, this will help you set up the right goals for you. Most people want to make change but unsure where to start. Look at the present situation first, what are you struggling with that needs to change? Start there, just pick ONE thing if you are overwhelmed. 

Feeling any of these?
  • No energy
  • Over weight
  • Can't sleep at night
  • Stressed out
  • Debt
  • Lack of self care
  • Hot mess emotions
  • Poor relationships
  • Lack of social life
  • Self image
  • Work Life balance a mess
Here are some additional resources you may find helpful when setting your goals:

Goal Setting & How to achieve 4 MIN VIDEO 

 Bob Proctor shares that most people fail with goals and struggle with life despite trying desperately to change their end results  because of a common error. Most people who are sick, broke and unhappy are trying to change their results by their actions BUT fail because they do not realize our actions are continuously motivated by our MINDSET.  Our results are a direct reflection of our mindset.  So if you are rolling your eyes, listen to Bob about this HERE

What truly matters is finding your purpose, setting the right goals and connecting and engaging with like minded people. You can change. You can slay your goals and create the life you want to live instead of Groundhogs day, year after year after year.

Feeling the grinch coming on?

Feeling the grinch coming on?

Feeling the grinch coming on?

Why are the holidays soooo stressful? It’s suppose to be the most wonderful time of the year

You got a crazy Aunt Linda bringing you down or other family members you dread to have to deal with?

The thought of finding the right gift

Maybe, your table is missing a loved one.

The list goes on...

So many reasons why we stress ourselves out more so than normally, this time of year.

It’s time to break this cycle and oil up grinches.

Did you know just smelling the right essential oils can affect your mood, emotions and literally switch off that grinch mode?

When we breath in an essential oil it passes through our sinuses to the limbic portion of our brains.

Some people think this is magic...

But really the oils in essence help our brains and body work the way they were intended too...  

How would the holidays FEEL if you could:
🎄 spark joy and happiness.
🎄be in the right mindset to face crazy Aunt Linda and her litter of annoying pups
🎄perform a one minute breathing technique to calm those frazzled nerves.
🎄truly feel that Christmas spirit.

These are just a few ways that you could feel by using essential oils and there is still time to get them in your home before the family arrives!

What is one thing that completely stresses you out during the holiday season?

Building your Young Living Essential Oil Collection on a Budget.

For all those Young ESSENTIAL OIL Lovers that want to build an oil collection -I have some great tips & suggestions for you to build an amazing collection without breaking the bank!




We are going to talk about the different options You can do to build your oils collection BUT I feel it is important that You have ALL the important details before you make your decision about Essential Rewards, lets get to it!!!


Here are a few tips when building your collection:
  • All of the Vitality Oils come in 5 ml bottles and are little less expensive then some of their counterparts. If an oil comes in a VITALITY (white label) and REGULAR (Solid colored bottle)...it is the same oil in each bottle. They are labeled differently so consumers know how to use them. If an oil does not come in a VITALITY version and only a SOLID Colored bottle-it should only be used topically and or aromatically. BUT if it is a VITALITY-you could choose to use it internally or topically. Make sense? Learn about COOKING WITH OILS
  • When looking to see ALL the oils YL offers-you can see the FULL list in the Virtual office (Log into to Young Livings website with your member ID# and Your password) then go to which order platform you are using (For the LOVE of all things oily & your checkbook-choose ESSENTIAL REWARDS), searching Products under your ESSENTIAL REWARD (monthly order) order or SHOP (one time) Order--> Essential Oil Products-->(6 categories) EO singles, EO blends, Dietary EO, Roll-ons, Massage Oils, Collections. If you are READY, WILLING & ABLE to invest more than $50, I suggest looking at the COLLECTIONS as you will get the best bang for your buck and build your collection faster. (But I have a tip for you on getting the collections for FREE, keep reading!!
  • YL Collections available on ER: Active & Fit kit, Every day oils collection, Feelings kit, Golden Touch 1 kit, Oils of Ancient scripture, Raindrop collection, Select 30, Vitality Culinary kit, D. Gary Young Commemorative collection, essence of the season....This list changes....with promos, etc. AND there are other collections available ONLY with a SHOP (One time order). 
  • There is a HUGE collection called the Premiere Aroma Collection which you receive 120 essential oils in a brown vegan leather backpack (that holds 140 oils). It is the BOMB DIGGITY (So I hear) but NOT everyone can drop 2 K all at once, hence this blog post-keeping building a YL Oil Collection on a budget-and I have a TIP o how you could potentially get this for FREE.....Stay tuned. 
  • Learn More about the ESSENTIAL REWARDS PROGRAM

Utilize essential rewards to build your collection is the BEST Option, Here is why;
  • The regularity-I can't tell you how many times I have ran out of milk, the beloved TP or a supplement that my family needs. Ordering monthly REMINDS us to order the needed items we need and or build your essential oil collection. 
  • The customization-I can order whatever I want, change my oils or products, change the date it processes-FULL CONTROL over MY order. 
  • The Rewards-I LOVE the reward programs that give me FREE stuff and YL sends reward gifts at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and then yearly. 
  • The Points-In addition to the free oils, I earn back a percentage of my order every month. The first 3 months is 10% back, then it's 20% for months 4 through 24, and then it's 25% back there on out. Those points can be redeemed on a SHOP (one time order).
  • Minimal Order is 50 PV (Hence this blog) and FREE SHIPPING over any 100 PV Order. 
  • Access to ER Kits: Essential Reward members have the opportunity to purchase ER kits (items YL has put together at a lower cost) such as the Thieves ER or NingXia Red ER kits (Only available to ER members)
  • You can enroll in ER by clicking the ER tab on your YL Virtual office-I can guide you if you need help. 
  • You can Cancel ER at any time BUT this does require a phone call to Young Living to cancel (this can not be done on line). BUT wait there is MORE-if you do choose to cancel for whatever reason-USE ANY REWARD POINTS YOU HAVE FIRST, If you don't use them and cancel-you LOOSE THEM. 
  • All about Essential Rewards HERE.
Lets talk PV a moment
PV is a point value assigned to each product YL sells. MOST of the oils and products are 1 PV = $1 BUT not ALL of them. You can see the Retail price, Wholesale Price and PV next to each item either on Your Virtual office, on the VIRTUAL PRODUCT CATALOG or the Product Guide. You will need to order a minimum of 50 PV on your monthly essential reward order. So it is important to not just look at your PRICE total but your PV total. 

PV is important when you are ordering: 
  • 50 PV needed for your monthly ER order.
  • If you are not on ER-you will need to place a 50 PV order once per year to maintain your wholesale membership.
  • On ER, you EARN PV points that you can then use to get FREE products (That have an equal PV to $ amount) with a SHOP order (not your ER Order). THESE POINTS ADD UP. See below on how to use them. 
  • You can get FREE Shipping on ALL orders (ER or SHOP) that are 100 PV or higher. Choose economy shipping. 
  • You can get certain FREE MONTHLY PROMO products that YL offers at certain price points that change each month. 
Redeeming Points with a SHOP order-What you NEED to know:
  • You may redeem your points online at checkout by selecting “Apply Points” or by contacting Member Services at 1.800.371.3515.
  • You may redeem up to 350 points each month.
  • If you choose to cancel your enrollment in the Essential Rewards program, you forfeit all of your unused Essential Rewards points. You must contact Member Services to cancel enrollment. Your monthly participation in the program, if resumed, will accumulate points again at the 10 percent level.
  • When redeeming Essential Rewards points, use the PV amount rather than the dollar value. For example, if you have 50 points, you may redeem them for any product with a PV value up to 50. Points may only be redeemed for products with full PV values. Not all products are eligible, and items purchased with Essential Rewards points are not returnable.
  • Unused points expire on a 12-month rolling basis, meaning they expire 12 months from when they were earned
What products can you order with your Points?
Under Shop order-add items to your cart that have the PURPLE FLAG next to them (Now this may change) . See that purple flag-that means you can purchase that item with POINTS-SO if you want collection of oils-you can start with your 50 or 100 PV essential rewards order (remember 100 PV gets you FREE shipping AND the more you spend, the more you earn AND the longer you are on ER the more points you earn up to 25% of Your ER order back each month).   

There are a TON of different oils, products and COLLECTIONS you can get FREE with your REWARD POINTS. Scroll back up to the section I wrote YL Collections available on ER- The collections available to get with points (currently)       I BOLDED & UNDERLINED It is a pretty nice list!

SO, YOU could save your points for one of the COLLECTIONS you can get for FREE with your REWARD POINTS YOU HAVE EARNED (there is no right or wrong way-AND remember you can get what you want, just showing you some of the OPTIONS) . Now, you may want a collection that is over the 350 max point redemption mark per month-in that case you CALL Young Living and they will HELP you. AND if You want to save your points for the AROMA COLLECTION call YL Customer service and they will guide you through the process.

Cleaning the house with natural products that don't break the bank!

Most people do not realize the potential negative impact of the products they use on a daily basis from cleaning products sprayed around the house to personal care products used on the body. About eight years ago I began swapping out store bought to DIY versions for my families health and the safety of the environment and to save money. I then started switching out my personal care products as well. In making the switch to products using high quality, natural ingredients, I realized better products are more expensive. SO as a budget savvy momma and using natural products from Young Living that are already concentrated, I learned some hacks a long the way to make my  products last longer that don't break the bank-matter of fact-they SAVE me A LOT of money. 

Today I will share 3 of my favorite daily use YL products, why they are my favorite and how I stretch my budget using some simple hacks anyone can do. 


With a plant-based formula, Thieves laundry soap gently and naturally washes your clothes, leaving them truly clean without any chemical or synthetic residue. Natural enzymes and powerful essential oils like Thieves, Jade Lemon, and Bergamot, add to the formula’s strength, leaving your clothes fresh and clean with a light citrus scent. The plant-based formula can even be safely poured directly onto clothes!

Thieves laundry soap can be used in all washers, including high efficiency and its highly concentrated formula will handle approximately 64 loads with just 32 fl oz.

Thieves Laundry Soap is formulated without:
• SLS
• Dyes
• Petrochemicals
• Formaldehyde
• Phosphates
• Synthetic perfumes
• Optical brighteners- many detergents use optical brighteners to make clothes appear brighter, which has nothing to do with actually cleaning the clothes? The clothes only appear whiter and brighter because these additives reflect blue light, giving the illusion that your clothes are less yellow. These optical brighteners remain in your clothes and are rub against the skin when worn. Instead, to keep whites at their whitest, launder in hot water and hang them dry in the sun for natural bleaching!

How to use:

• Use 1⁄2 cap for conventional washers
• Use 1⁄4 cap for high-efficiency washers
• Use more as needed for large or heavily soiled loads

********************OR*********************

YOU can do what I did and stretch this ultra concentration formula!

As promised here is a tip to help stretch your laundry soap while creating a peace of mind knowing you are using plant based product instead of one filled with toxins.

Today I made 2 gallons of laundry soap using only 1/2 cup of thieves laundry soap

Just think about how long one bottle of thieves laundry soap could last you!!

In a 2 gallon glass container(or cut this recipe in half and use a one gallon container):

  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup washing soda
  • 1/2 cup thieves laundry soap
  • 1/4 cup thieves household cleaner
  • 8 drops thieves essential oil
  • 8 drops lemon essential oil
  • Add hot water to finish filling the container, stir and BOOM.
Now, I still only use 1\4 to 1/2 cup per load. So that means (using 1/2 cup per load) 2 gallons is enough for 64 loads...And I can do that SEVEN more times with the rest of my laundry soap.....

How long would 2 gallons of laundry soap last you??

32 ounces of Thieves laundry soap is item #5349 wholesale cost is $30.75 (PV is 30.75) and follow the directions of use and wash 64 loads of laundry..

Or take advantage of the ultra concentrated formula and....

Make eight 2 gallon containers of laundry soap...and wash over 500 loads of laundry...

Update: that 2 gallon container lasted my family of 7 one month-that means one bottle of thieves laundry soap is enough to wash our clothes for 8 months-leaving me plenty of room on your essential reward order for other products.

How’s that to stretch your oils AND budget????



If you haven’t used Thieves Dish Soap do yourself and your family a favor and try it! Thieves Dish Soap will effectively clean your dishes without harsh chemicals, dyes, or synthetics. Jade Lemon and Bergamot essential oils and Thieves essential oil blend complete the formula with their naturally occurring constituents.

Thieves Dish Soap contains:

• Surfactants: These are derived from natural sources such as glucose, palm trees, and coconuts. Surfactants are needed for different reasons: (1) They act as cleansing and foaming agents, and (2) they act as stabilizers to make sure you don’t get an overload of bubbles as you wash your dishes! Because they are naturally derived, our surfactants are biodegradable and non-irritating to your skin. Our formula pairs the surfactants with natural salts, because these two ingredients work synergistically to boost cleaning properties!

• Minerals (sodium sesquicarbonate): This naturally derived ingredient balances the pH in the formula, which means that no preservatives are needed! The minerals are extracted from trona ore, a mineral that is found near the Green River area.

• Jade Lemon essential oil: Jade Lemon has a unique lemon-lime scent that is pleasing and uplifting. Its wonderful, zesty fragrance is clean and inviting.

• Bergamot essential oil: Bergamot’s aroma is tart yet sweet and uplifting yet relaxing, making it a popular oil in perfumes, cosmetics, and lotions. In addition to its scent, Bergamot has attracted attention for its cleansing properties, and it’s often used as a luxurious ingredient in shampoos, soaps, and cleansers.

• Thieves essential oil blend: Thieves is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils for an aromatic blend that fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma. It includes the naturally occurring constituents trans-cinnamaldehyde, limonene, and eucalyptol. It’s known for its cleansing properties, and it neutralizes and purifies odors.

We love using our Thieves Dish Soap because we know with certainty that it boasts clean, plant-based ingredients safe for the whole family AND as a Momma on a budget I have a hack for this too! I take one bottle and turn it into 3 bottles. First empty 2/3 of your thieves dish soap into another container like a mason jar, then add 1 tablespoon of baking soda (into the bottle that has 1/3 left) add water and BOOM.

Check out this video to see how easy this is....
 

Thieves Household Cleaner
Create a welcoming home that is safe for everyone with this all purpose cleaner. Thieves household cleaner is another concentrated plant based product YL offers and this ultraconcentrated cleaner cleaner ALL THE THINGS and all you need is add one capful to a 16 ounce bottle, add water. The result? YOU can get 28 bottles of household cleaner for $ 0.83 EACH.

What a terrific month this will be!!!

Research these oils and learn WHY they are so valuable! Frankincense has been used around the world for many centuries to help with physical/spiritual/emotional issues. I would guess that there is more information written about Frankincense than any other oil -- or perhaps Lavender may surpass it. It was revered by royalty and medicine men of old. Study the history and find out why!

Ten or more years ago, we were missing Black Spruce oil needed for many of our blends. Gary happened to fly over a tree farm in British Columbia and he was told it was a black spruce farm. He went there, bought it, and carved a farm and distillery out of basically a huge bunch of trees. Gary and Ben Howden and others worked tirelessly, sometimes at 30 degrees below zero, to make that into a real farm and distillery. It was a huge undertaking and that's where we get our outstanding Northern Lights Black Spruce (NLBS) oil! with the Aurora Borealis watching over!

BREATHE AGAIN is an oil blend that your lungs will LOVE! This 15 ml bottle will allow you to be a little more generous with it -- and you can diffuse it. Breathe Again generally comes in a roll-on and that makes diffusing difficult! Make this holiday season a very pleasant one because you will be breathing deeply!

Check out this video about this months amazing promotions: 

Enjoy these precious oils and always remember to be grateful for the knowledge and the products we have at our fingertips!!
