All About Lavender

We absolutely LOVE using Young Living Lavender Essential Oil in our home! There are so many uses for Lavender essential oil that some refer to it as the “Swiss Army Knife of Essential Oils.”

Did You Know?

  • It takes 170 pounds of plant material to produce 1 pound of Young Living Lavender Essential Oil
  • You can actually visit Young Living farms and participate in the planting and harvesting. This is part of the Seed to Seal process that you can see with your very own eyes.
  • Lavender is the most adulterated of all essential oils, so it is VERY important to know what you are getting. So, if you have ever smelled Young Living’s Lavender you will notice the difference in aroma immediately!

Some of our favorite ways we use Young Living Lavender Essential Oil in our home:

  • diffuse it, especially at night to calm everyone down for bedtime
  • a linen spray, made with lavender, epsom salt and water
  • added to lemon & peppermint in a rollerball bottle for relief of seasonal symptoms
  • a delicious Honey Lavender Lemonade
  • bath salts for a relaxing bath for mommy
  • skin soother, lavender added to coconut oil for any skin relief..we love this coconut oil
  • if we’ve spent a little to long out in the sun, we add lavender to this fractionated coconut oil and this aloe vera juice to make a spray that is soothing

Young Living Zyng and Nitro the perfect energy drink combo

I love energy drinks!  I mean, REALLY love energy drinks!!  I have tried almost all of them on the market. It seems that most will give me a quick pick-me-up and then I crash. I also can’t stand the after-taste I get from them.

That is until I found the perfect energy combo. I drink a Young Living Zyng with a tube of Nitro in it.  Now, I don’t get any shakes or jitters and I don’t get any kind of pre-workout drink headache!

It tastes great and gives me the energy and focus to get through my workouts.  It’s now my go-to Pre-Workout drink!  I always drink one 15 minutes before my weight-training and one before I do martial arts.

A Little Cook in Training

My daughter has recently found a new love of baking. She wants to bake all the time, and if she’s not baking then she’s looking up new recipes and ideas on the internet with me. She recently found directions for making “Emoji cookies” and talked her daddy into buying some different icings and cookie dough at the grocery store the other day. When they got home from the store she started working on the cookies.

She wanted to do them all by herself too! Once the cookies cooled she got busy decorating them. This is when her artistic skills came out (and I know I’m super biased, but she’s a very talented artist!)

They turned out super cute and she very excited when she figured out that the Christmas Tree cookie cutter makes the perfect “poop emoji” cookie when she cut off the trunk portion of the tree.

While we were looking up new recipes and ideas for baking we found the coolest cookbook that she just had to have. The title is super cute too: The Nerdy Nummies Cookbook: Sweet Treats for the Geek in All of Us by Rosanna Pansino.  I highly recommend this to anyone that has a child in their life that’s interested in baking!  And to be honest, if I didn’t have kids I would love owning this cookbook because the recipes are the yummiest!

I’m so glad we ordered it for her because it has some awesome recipes and they are super easy for her to follow along with all on her own…she’s quite the independent cook!

The first recipe she decided to make from the cookbook was the chocolate chip cookies. Obviously we’ve all had chocolate chip cookies before, but let me tell you, these cookies had to be the BEST ones I’ve ever eaten! They were so moist, soft and just the perfect amount of chocolate and sweetness.

The next recipe she wanted to try was “Unicorn Poop Cookies”…yep, you heard that correctly, I said “UNICORN POOP COOKIES!!!”  This girl of mine is so silly!

rainbow cookies

Even though this recipe had a lot of different steps involved in making these cookies it really wasn’t difficult.  We had a lot of fun making these together (she actually let me help her with these!)

First, we had to add the coloring to 6 different bowls of cookie dough.

Then, we rolled each color out into small little balls and let sit in fridge for a few minutes.

Next, we rolled each ball out into small strips to make the layers for the rainbow.

Then after we put the 6 different colored strips together we shaped the cookies to, of course, look like “unicorn poop”….haha!!!

After they came out of the oven we let them cool on the rack and then decorated a few of them.  Aren’t they just so pretty?

Did I mention that the dough recipe was “Cream Cheese Sugar Cookie Dough?”  Oh-Em-Gee!!!!  Let me tell you, these cookies were absolutely YUMMY, or NUMMY!!!!!!!!!

The only problem so far that I’ve seen with us ordering this cookbook is that she wants to bake all the time and the recipes have all been DELICIOUS!!! I mean, bakery worthy, yummy-licious…..so, it’s not helping my clean-eating diet that I’m trying to stay on!!!!
