Happy Mothers Day!

Mother' day is one of my most favorite days of the year. Signs of spring blooming, children playing in the yard and the laughter of family and friends fill the air.
Growing up, my mom was the matriarch of our family. Ensuring family ties were kept, showing love to all creatures of God as well as teaching me some amazing  life lessons.
I can't believe she has been gone for 20 years. Twenty years....I suppose with each passing year, time seems to pass faster and faster.... almost at the speed of light.
As the wind softly blows on my face unseen but felt; so is my mom's compassionate, loving presence in my heart.
Being a mother myself, I step back every now and again; chuckle and say "WOW did I just sound like my mom or what" Maybe you can relate...
I am so grateful to have been raised by an amazing, fun, compassionate, hard working woman and empowered by her legacy to be a the best mother I can be to my four awesome children.
I hope someday they will be filled with gratitude and empowerment as I was.
Whether you are a mom or have a mom or maybe someone whom raised you as a mom...I hope you have a beautiful Mothers Day and may many blessings come your way!

A Day in my Young Living Life

Often times I get asked by others how they should start with Young Living, what Young Living Products to use and how to incorporate them into their daily life.

What better way then to share a day in my life!

Upon waking in the morning I reach over and grab my Present Time oil, put a few drops into my hands and inhale. This helps me stay in the present moment so I can enjoy the limited time with my family before going to work. Then off to the bathroom, where I shower using Young Living shampoo and conditioner-the Copaiba Vanilla is my favorite, ART face wash and Morning Start shower gel. I always apply Thieves oils to my feet for immune protection, as well as use Thieves toothpaste and mouthwash. I apply my ART moisturizer to my face and use Aromagaurd deodorant.

For breakfast I may have a smoothie and add essential oils to them such as lemon. I have a shot of Ningxia red, take my chewable vitamin C and use the "Happy Every Day Protocol". This Protocol incorporates the following essential Oils: Joy on my heart center, Valor on my wrists, Harmony on my solar plexus and White Angelica as my shield. Now I am ready for my day-protected health wise, spiritually and emotionally!

In my car on the way to work I diffuse oils while listening to a medication CD (No I don't close my eyes while driving). Lately I have been diffusing Ylang Ylang and Bergamot-the combination helps balance my masculine and feminine sides and bring a sense of joy. Prior to entering work, I apply Brain Power essential oil to the back of my neck-WOW the ideas I get!

Afternoons at work sometimes I get a bit tired, so I take out my peppermint oil and inhale! I instantly feel revived and it works great for headaches as well. During the day I incorporate my Core Supplements for overall health and well-being. Evenings I may have another shot of my Ningxia Red, add some oils to my home diffuser so the family enjoys the benefits as well and add oils to my cooking and baking as I feel fit!

I also use the essential oils with my kids. Prior to my daughters music lessons, we apply Valor to her feet to help her focus. I love epsom salts and lavender in the bath-so does my daughter. Peace and Calming helps them sleep at night and I use a mixture of Lavender, Tea Tree and water in a spray for their hair to prevent lice. No lice in this house since we have started using oils!

For meditating I use Frankincense oil and for relaxing I use Lavander or stress away...

There are so many wonderful ways to use essential oils to support mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health! I love Young Living's promise to honor Authenticity, sustainability and offering products to replace the harmful chemical enhanced personal care and household products I used to use.

For all you beautiful phenomenal ladies I share one of my favorite poems...

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. 
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size   
But when I start to tell them, 
They think I’m telling lies. 
I say, 
It’s in the reach of my arms, 
The span of my hips,   
The stride of my step,   
The curl of my lips.   
I’m a woman 

Phenomenal woman,   
That’s me. 

I walk into a room 
Just as cool as you please,   
And to a man, 
The fellows stand or 
Fall down on their knees.   
Then they swarm around me, 
A hive of honey bees.   
I say, 
It’s the fire in my eyes,   
And the flash of my teeth,   
The swing in my waist,   
And the joy in my feet.   
I’m a woman 

Phenomenal woman, 
That’s me. 

Men themselves have wondered   
What they see in me. 
They try so much 
But they can’t touch 
My inner mystery. 
When I try to show them,   
They say they still can’t see.   
I say, 
It’s in the arch of my back,   
The sun of my smile, 
The ride of my breasts, 
The grace of my style. 
I’m a woman 
Phenomenal woman, 
That’s me. 

Now you understand 
Just why my head’s not bowed.   
I don’t shout or jump about 
Or have to talk real loud.   
When you see me passing, 
It ought to make you proud. 
I say, 
It’s in the click of my heels,   
The bend of my hair,   
the palm of my hand,   
The need for my care.   
’Cause I’m a woman 
Phenomenal woman, 
That’s me.
Maya Angelou, “Phenomenal Woman” from And Still I Rise.

Some positive affirmations for you:

I love and approve of myself.
I have a healthy and slender body.
All me relationships are harmonious.

Some of my favorite essential oils for Women:

Joy-who can't use more joy in their heart?
Stress away-I personally use this oil daily to fight off the daily stressors of life!
Valor-every woman can use a boost of self confidence to be phenomenal!

Have a phenomenal day and
Rock on Ladies,
