Today ONLY Promotion…My 3 Obsessions!!

There are three things that I’m pretty much obsessed with….monograms, online shopping and health & wellness. 

I have a saying: “if it can’t be monogrammed, then do you really even need it” 

I’ve been monogramming as a business for almost 15 years now and I just love how adding a monogram can totally change the entire look of anything. I’m always thinking of ways to make designs for shirts, mugs, etc., so that a monogram or some kind of personalization can be added in there somewhere. 

Anyone else use Amazon? Anyone use it on the daily? 
Well, I try to limit my Amazon ordering, but you know sometimes a girl just needs a new blender or that cute sweater (yep, Amazon fashion is super cute these days!)

Health & wellness…this is an area of my life that is very important to me! I am constantly looking for ways to keep my family healthy. With the foods that we eat, the products we use every day and how we can fit in some exercise with family activities & outings 

Essential oils & essential oil infused products have been a game-changer for us! I want all of the families out there to experience what we have with these oils. 

❇️❇️ So, for today ONLY I’m running a promotion that combines my 3 obsessions!!!!!!

Anyone who orders a diffuser oil kit from me TODAY will receive a monogrammed gift from me…and it can be personalized with your monogram or if you are needing a gift for someone I can use their monogram instead. {Personalized gifts make the best gifts!}

And, I’m going to send you a $20 Amazon gift card!!!!!!!  

On top of the monogrammed gift from my business Palmetto Embroidery Boutique, the $20 Amazon gift card and all of the other oily resources & goodies I’m going to send you, Young Living is giving a 10% discount on your kit and today is the LAST day they are offering it! They very rarely give discounts on the kits because they are already such an amazing deal, but who doesn’t love a sale?!?!

Once you sign up, I will add you to our team’s Facebook groups that will help support you as you begin this journey! Send me a message and I’ll get you set up!!

A Day In the Life of Our Oily Family – Cleaning with Young Living Essential Oils

Time to Start Cleaning:

Thieves Household Cleaner

Thieves Household Cleaner – When I say that we clean everything in our home with this one product, I SERIOUSLY mean it!!  We use this to clean surfaces in all rooms, even our hardwood floors, spot clean clothing when something gets spilled on them, our stainless steel appliances, tubs/showers….everything!!  I love that I can now clean my house without those products that contain dangerous or synthetic ingredients.  And I don’t know about you, but cleaning meant that I was going to end up with a headache and when my son would come home from school he knew I had been cleaning….because he would immediately get the same headache and start having respiratory issues.

In my research of trying to switch out as many of our daily products that I could in our home with healthier options, cleaners and any products that gave off smells/fumes was something I was very interested in ridding our home of.

The Thieves Household Cleaner was one of the first products I ordered after I purchased my Premium Starter Kit.  And I’m SO glad that I did!  The picture below shows how many cleaning products I was able to get rid of and replace with just this one bottle of Thieves Household Cleaner!

Isn’t that amazing?  I use just 1 capful of the cleaner in this 32oz spray bottle and fill the rest with water!  And that’s IT!!  Easy peasy!  And super cheap!  And most important—super clean and free of toxins…..love these plant based cleaning products!!  No need to ever open the windows now while I’m cleaning, like before.

This is one of my ABSOLUTE favorite Young Living products and that’s why I’m shipping a full bottle of Thieves Household Cleaner to anyone who joins my oily tribe by grabbing their Premium Starter Kit BEFORE THE END OF THIS MONTH!!!

A Day In the Life of Our Oily Family: Morning

Young Living Essential Oils have become an such important part of our daily routine.  Today I’m taking you along a typical day for our family to show you our routine and how we incorporate oils throughout our day.

(God’s breathtaking morning artwork….photo cred: my daughter;  our view each morning from our driveway headed to school)

Morning Routine:

First thing I do when I get up every morning is start the diffuser that’s centrally located in the part of our home where we spend most of our time in the morning before we head out to start our day.

I LOVE diffusing Thieves & Orange together.

Why?

Thieves Essential Oil = Supports a healthy immune system

Orange Essential Oil = Happy & Uplifting Aroma ~ Perfect for waking up

{Dewdrop Home Diffuser}

Supplement Time

What I take and why I take each one:

Super B – energy & mood booster

MultiGreens – cause I could never eat that many greens, and our body needs the greens

Inner Defense – immune system support

OmegaGize – this mama has always taken a fish oil supplement..now I have the best one to help support my general wellness! 😉

Agilease – to support healthy joints to keep me moving

Mineral Essence – our bodies depend on minerals to function

MindWise – supports this mama’s brain 😉

NingXia Red – it’s a whole body nutrient drink for overall health & wellness (all 4 of us drink at least 1ounce every single day!)

Fresh & So Clean Teeth Time:

We clean our teeth using products from Young Living’s dental line, including:

Thieves AromaBright toothpaste, Thieves dental floss, and Thieves mouthwash

Why do we use these products?  We have been in the process of ridding our home and our daily routines of as many toxins as possible.  While doing this we have learned a lot about many of the products and foods we were using, and let’s just say it’s kinda scary!

One of the first products we ditched & switched was our dental care products.  It didn’t take a lot of research to figure out how dangerous fluoride & other chemicals found in these were. Some of these linked to causing respiratory issues, cancer, etc.  And just think, most of us are swallowing at least some of these while cleaning our teeth…ESPECIALLY our little ones!! Most of these products even come with warnings not to swallow.  And even if you don’t swallow any of it, they are inside your mouth which is then absorbed still into your body.

Young Living Dental Line

Oils & Other Oily Stuff We Use in the Morning:

We all start our day with at least one oil applied on us.  Here’s the list of some we use:

DiGize – Rolled on around our belly button to support our digestive system

Cedarwood – applied to the end of our brain stem on the back of our head/neck to help us focus on our studies and work day

En R Gee – we apply this up & down our spine; and I bet you can figure out what it supports 😉

Joy – we roll this on our heart for some extra emotional support and our daughter loves it for her “perfume”

Thieves – everyone gets this rolled on the bottoms of their feet and their spine each day before we head out the door to support our immune system when we are around a lot of people and germs during the day

Valor – mama & daddy like this one applied to our shoulders to help us with confidence, especially for those days where we have to make lots of decisions & go thru meetings

Frankincense & Myrhh – I like to take one drop each and rub them on my face before my makeup to help with supporting healthy skin

AromaGuard Mountain Mint Deodorant – in our continued journey to rid our home and bodies of as many harmful toxins as we can, our deodorant was on that list to find a less-toxic option.  The Young Living deodorants are are healthier alternative to the aluminum-based brands we had been using.

Lavender Hand & Body Lotion – this is our go-to for lotion now!  I love it in the summer months, but especially in the winter months when our skin is so dry.  Full of plant-based ingredients AND the smell is AMAZING!

Savvy Minerals Makeup – I have now switched all of my makeup out to using Young Living’s Savvy Minerals and I am absolutely in LOVE!!  My makeup has never looked better, and my face has never felt better!!!  It’s just something about knowing those products that I used to use that are filled with possible toxins aren’t sitting on my skin all day anymore.  Now, when my daughter, who is currently 11 years old, begins to get interested in trying makeup I won’t have to worry about what we are putting on her skin!    And now you can begin your journey with Young Living by purchasing a Savvy Minerals Premium Starter Kit!

Savvy Premium Starter Kit

So, as you can see we use quite a bit of essential oils & products in the morning.  We use more throughout the day and our next post will be all about those products.

Outdoor FREEdom!!!!

Who loves being outdoors? 🙋🏻

Who loves being outdoors and not having to deal with outdoor annoyances? 🙋🏻

Who loves spraying icky bug sprays all over themselves and kiddos? 🙅🏻👎🏼

I’m giving the first person that signs up with me on this amazing oily journey with the Premium Starter Kit a 15ml bottle of Citronella Essential Oil!!!! Along with all of the resource materials & goodies that I provide all of my new members to get them started on their oily life journey!!!

Here’s my fav recipe to use when making our spray bottle of Outdoor Spray.  It stays by the backdoor of our home so that whenever someone is heading out they can easily find it!

I also like to spray around the border of my back porch when I want to head outside for some “back porch sitting & drink my coffee”

We love working in the yard & my daughter especially loves planting new flowers!  I’m SO thankful that I have a healthier, chemical-free option to spray whenever she’s headed out to sit in the dirt and do some planting!!

Our whole family enjoys sitting by the fire at night, but Oh-Em-Gee those outdoor annoyances LOVE us!!  We now can take our outdoor spray with Citronella Essential Oil outside with us!

We also love taking it with us on family outings and vacations!!!

To the FIRST person that purchases their oil kit from me is going to get a FREE 15ml bottle of this AH-MAZING Citronella Essential Oil, so that you and your family can enjoy being outdoors as much as our family does!!

Get Summer Ready Series ~ Enjoy the Outdoors

We all love being outdoors with our family, and who doesn’t love that amazing vitamin c we get from the sun?  But, we don’t always love the after-effects that we may get from the amazing sun!  This little bottle of LavaDerm has become one of my favorite Young Living products to have on hand not only in the summer, but all year long!  My kiddos would live outside if I would let them, so they seem to always have that sun-kissed skin that needs a little bit of soothing and that’s when LavaDerm comes into play!  It contains Lavender essential oil, which you can read all about right here.  Favorite tip: add 20 drops of Myrhh and Carrot Seed essential oils to your bottle of LavaDerm for a cooling sensation and to help soothe & protect from the sun! **not to be substituted for shade and/or sunscreen**

Who wants to enjoy the outdoors annoyance free?  **Me raising hands!!!**  I always have a bottle of this diy outdoor spray sitting by our backdoor so that when any of us are on our ways outdoors we can spray our clothing with it!  I love these bottles to make our diy recipes when we need a spray bottle!

Did you know that Peppermint essential oil when applied to the skin provides a cooling sensation?  It’s so nice on those HOT summer days!  We’ve been doing a lot of landscaping in our backyard the past few weeks so this bottle of “cooling spray” has been used a lot by our whole family!  I also like to take this to the beach in our beach bag and also when we spend the day at an amusement park!  This particular spray bottle was purchased at Target, but I also like these bottles!  All you need to make this cooling spray is Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil, water and a spray bottle!!  Easy peasy!!

So, I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time sometimes being on a boat!  Sometimes the motion is just too much for me!  I try to always have a bottle of DiGize & Peppermint in my oil bag whenever I know I’m going to be on the water!  It helps to make me feel better and as though I’m back on land!  Oh, sweet land!!!!!!!

And let me tell you about Lemon essential oil!  Lemon essential oil is a must have in my little “mommy tool kit”  Got something sticky you’re wanting gone….rub a drop of Lemon essential oil on it; Got something stinky that you’re wanting to go away….add 2-3 drops to your diffuser or to a cotton ball and Oh Em Gee it smells so amazing and refreshing!!  So, if you’re out fishing and you want to rid your hands of that fishy smell, make sure you have a bottle of Lemon in your bag and it only takes a drop or 2 and wallah, the fishy smell is gone!

Okay, that’s it for today!  We will be back tomorrow to continue our Summer Series!!  We will be learning how to get our feet flip-flop ready!!!!
