Young Living’s Essential Rewards Program

Take a look at this awesome bunch of FREE oils I got last month with my Young Living Essential Rewards points!! Yep, you read that right. All these oils–over $300 worth–were FREE with the Essential Rewards points that I accumulated during the year (I did pay about $11.00 or so for shipping). Is that not awesome! So, maybe you’re sitting there wondering, what is Essential Rewards, and how in the world can I score me some of [ ... ]

How To Make The Most Of A Healing Diet

I covered our diet in detail in the first post, and yesterday talked about some difficulties that we have had to overcome to make this whole thing work. Today, I want to share some tips that I think have helped us as we’ve journeyed through this process, in hopes that they might help you too. 1. Always remember your [ ... ]

How To Get Started With A Healing Diet

Yesterday, I shared about the strict healing diet that has been a part of our life now for almost 2 years. If you missed that post, you can check it out here, and see the list of foods that we don’t eat. It is quite an extensive list. It hasn’t been easy to make this diet work, but in spite of that, we have found it to be completely do-able and it has literally become [ ... ]

What In The World Is A Healing Diet?

Well, here is another long overdue post. I am apparently not good at balancing everything else in life and blogging too. :/  But I am not giving up! I just may have to be more realistic about the amount of posts I crank out for this thing We are currently on a pretty strict healing diet, and that is a topic that I have been asked about over and over by many different people.

Hello! I hope you all are  enjoying this April day! We love April, except for the allergies. (And this allergy season has already been a doozy!)

Banana Sour Cream Muffin Recipe

I call my son Nathan “The Muffin Man.” And yes, I sing the song to him quite frequently too. That sweet child could eat muffins all day long, every day, if I would let him. It doesn’t even really matter what kind of muffins, either. If it is a muffin, he will eat it, and most likely love it. I have tried a ton of different muffin recipes over the years–I even bought a book [ ... ]

My Granola “Okranola” Recipe

When Nathan was little, he used to call granola “okranola.” I have no idea where that came from, and sadly, it didn’t last long. But when we think of granola, it brings back those fun memories, and we still call it okranola occasionally because it was just so darn cute. I have a granola recipe that rocks my family’s socks off. In fact, my husband actually wants to eat it EVERY DAY. Sometimes he eats it [ ... ]

What’s So Great About Diffusing Essential Oils?

Did you know that diffusing Young Living Essential Oils is one of the best ways to experience their benefits? A good diffuser puts tiny oil droplets out into the air. Once they are in the air, you breathe them, they go into your lungs, and then quickly get into your bloodstream. This is so fabulous when you need their therapeutic benefits to start working extra fast! There are so many good things that come from inhaling [ ... ]
