Love in the air

Marriage is a beautiful gift from God. When a couple falls in love and they commit to become one, they start down a path in life together. They are optimistic and excited about the future, but they really don’t know where that path will lead.

Maintaining a healthy and loving relationship over the years is another thing. They may fall into routines. So many things will factor into the success or failure of that union. Finances, children, health, crisis, communication, and yes, for sure, maintaining the romance.

Essential oils can be a wonderful addition to a couple’s sex life. Our newsletter “Love in the Air” is written to give you ideas of what oils can be an enjoyable addition to your bedroom experience. Several recipes are also included.

What’s in your gym bag?

When January rolls around each year many people set goals to get into better shape, drop some extra weight, or in some way work to improve their overall wellness.

There are many products on the market to support these efforts. Some work. Some don’t. Some are safe. Some are not so safe. How do we know what products to select to support our goals for the new year?

For many years I have been using products from Young Living Essential Oils. One reason is because the company has proven to me repeatedly that they can be trusted. They go to great lengths to source ingredients that are safe and pure. A dedicated and highly qualified team of scientists researchs every ingredient to be sure each product exceeds set standards to provide products that support a healthy lifestyle.

This month I decided to compile a list of some of my favorite products that you can use with confidence in your personal fitness regimen. Click here to access my January newsletter: What’s in Your Gym Bag

Be the best you… Be Savvy

Could I share from my heart with you? For quite a few years I was in a very dark place in my health journey. I dedicated a great amount of money and energy to reversing years of complicated health challenges. Something had to give, and the sacrifice I made was skin care. I stopped wearing makeup partly because I chose to dedicate those dollars to my health and wellness. But also because I could not find products that agreed with me.

Until last summer when Young Living released it’s brand new clean makeup line of products called Savvy Minerals. So I decided to give it a try. And then… I fell in love with my new younger look and feel. The coverage of wrinkles and age spots was impressive, even on my first attempt at putting on the makeup. I started to enjoy my new look and the confidence I felt.

So, I started to talk about it to friends and even developed some training about Savvy Minerals. If you are interested in a personal consultation, please contact me at www.ShareScents.com

In the meantime, check out this newsletter giving a brief overview of the new Savvy Minerals by Young Living: Savvy Newsletter 17-12 SS

Spice up your fall recipes!

Lately I have been seeing a lot of great recipes for traditional fall foods. You know… the ones we make for Thanksgiving or on into December and January. It made me think about how much I love Thieves Vitality! A couple of weeks ago I got my hands on some fresh raw apple cider. It was delicious, but SO MUCH BETTER once I warmed it up in a kettle and added a drop of Thieves Vitality! Oh my – YUM! I loved the thought that I was supporting my immune system while warming my tummy (and hands while holding the mug)!

Have you ever explored the possibilities of using your essential oils to boost flavor in your cooking and baking? It is so easy and inexpensive too.  Yes, there are essential oils that are approved by the FDA as “Generally Regarded As Safe for internal consumption (GRAS). Most brands are not approved for internal use, but Young Living has a line called Vitality, that are specifically labeled and safe for internal use!

I remember the time I first discovered this concept. I was making a recipe that called for fresh-squeezed organic lime juice. To have that would have required me to drive 45 minutes to the nearest store where I could purchase an organic lime. Not happening! Then I remembered I had some Lime Vitality essential oil. SCORE! So convenient and just perfect.

I’ve used this trick when I need fresh nutmeg, ginger, clove. Well, you get the idea!

I do have to mention that the essential oils are very potent so you must go very easy on this. Some might require that you only dip a toothpick to get just the right amount. Others you might need a drop or maybe 4-6 drops. It just depends. So the rule is “less is more.” You can always add more, but you can’t take it out after it’s in! And you surely don’t want to make six more batches just to tone down the flavor if you added too many drops! I have heard for example, that one drop of peppermint yields the same effect as 28 cups of peppermint tea. Yowza! Now that’s potent!

I have taught classes on the topic of cooking with oils and if that interests you, please send me an inquiry. Perhaps we can schedule a video conference for you and a few of your friends who love to cook!

My wish for you

For a very long time I have been on a quest to have a healthy lifestyle. That journey has been very interesting, and with many bumps in the road.

Along the way, I have met many new friends who also want to be healthy. Some are having more success than others. Some have challenges that seem insurmountable but they keep searching for answers and progress is slow, or even undetectable at times.

What I love about these friends of like mind is that we encourage each other. We teach each other and help each other. We are a “tribe” and we stick together and look for others who want to join us in the journey!

I also have met people who don’t care about their health, or at least it seems that way. They take it for granted, assuming they are immune to the ills of others around them. Perhaps they are misinformed, or uninformed about the impact of how daily choices affect their health. Maybe they trust information that is wrong. Maybe they have addictions they don’t have the strength to overcome. Maybe they just feel they have no choices or fate is stacked against them.

I especially grieve over those who get caught up in the latest “rage” – some new fun product that they fall in love with. They haven’t thoroughly researched to discover ALL the ingredients, many that are not listed on the label, and therefore they don’t know they are slowly killing themselves or their loved ones.

These are the friends my heart cries over. I want so much the very best for them. I want to reach out to them and shake them and tell them, “Do you know what’s in that? Do you know what it’s doing to your body?” Then when they suddenly have a mystery illness or collapse of their health, they are confused. They search for answers but haven’t collected the knowledge or skills to cope.

Sometimes, they reach out to me with questions. As if I can suddenly make it all better. NO, I can’t make you well, and I am not your doctor. I care and I want the best for you. But you must find the answers now before it’s too late. Sure, I can point to resources but you must do the work yourself. It’s your journey, not mine.

Maybe you think it costs too much to be healthy or get healthy. Well, I know first-hand that it costs a whole lot more to get healthy than it does to stay healthy while you are still healthy.

Why am I on this rant? Because I care. I wish for you that you will NEVER have to look back and say, “If I had only known. Why didn’t you tell me. Why didn’t I listen.” So I continue to do everything I can to educate. I do everything I can to share the new things I learn so that you don’t have to go where I have been – sick and in pain and fighting my way back to vitality I once had.

Maybe you think I am just trying to sell you something. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you only knew how many tears I cry over you, and how much I care, and how much I want to help you.

What journey are you on? My wish for you is that you be healthy and happy. Please reach out to me and let’s be friends. Let’s share this journey together. You can contact me through my website. www.ShareScents.com

Health is a lifestyle

Wouldn’t you agree that most people want to be healthy?

Do you also think that most people aren’t as healthy as they would like to be?

Would you like to be healthier than you are today?

Over the past 40 or more years, I have worked very hard to climb out of what was a very UNHEALHY lifestyle that had me in a deep hole that I did not want to be in. As I studied and applied what I learned, it was very hard to overcome longstanding bad habits that were negatively impacting my wellness. It has been a long journey and I still have a long way to go. But I am so much better today than I was 20 years ago.

One of my passions is to help others by sharing what I have learned in order to make their wellness journey more successful. One thing I learned is that health is a lifestyle. You can’t just slap an oil on your skin or take some supplement and everything is suddenly all better! It just doesn’t work that way. That’s why I dedicate so much energy into to educating about wellness and a healthy lifestyle.

You have to start someplace and I love helping people (you) find your starting point or to help you discover a few missing pieces to aid you in a journey you already are on.  If you would like to visit with me about your healthy lifestyle, whether you want some ideas for improving your journey, or how to change directions to start that journey, I’d love to help. Fill out a request to contact me through my Share Scents website and we will talk!

Cleaning with Thieves

Once upon a time, I used a lot of chemicals in my home and personal care products. One of my mainstays was bleach. Living in the country in a humid climate, we always had that musty odor you get in the basement and it would permeate our home. I also used bleach to brighten our clothes in the wash.

One day, I learned that bleach is very unhealthy for the lungs and for the thyroid. Oh my! A light bulb went on in my head! Two health challenges I was battling involved my lungs and my thyroid. So, I decided to do some more research.

Fortunately, I had a lot of friends who also were interested in natural and healthy lifestyle choices. They told me how to get in the habit of reading labels and about the Environmental Working Group website where you can look up ingredients. I was horrified at the amount of toxins I was allowing in our home and bodies.

I started to learn about bottle swapping. Gradually, when a toxic cleaning product I had been using would be empty, I would replace it with a “clean” product. Over time, I eliminated and replaced so many products that I ended up with more room in my cupboards. The reason was that I discovered a whole line of products made by Young Living Essential Oils. All the products are based on the Thieves blend, which is a whole different story. I have written several articles about Thieves, so you can search “Thieves” and read up a bit more as you have time. But let me get back to the story!

The first product I discovered to help my cleaning dilemma was Thieves Household Cleaner. Words can’t describe my delight at how well it worked and how inexpensive it was. Now, I use it for everything! Floors, dusting, counters, kitchen, bathroom, mirrors and windows, and even tough jobs like getting spots out of clothes, and cleaning the house siding, carpets, cars, and more. Check out this cost comparison to see how cheap it is to clean safely and effectively!

Over time, I discovered the Thieves Laundry Soap, Dish soap, Hand Soap, and many other products in the Thieves line. I get rather passionate about the difference the Thieves products have made in my life. My house smells amazing and my lungs and thyroid are so much happier now that I have eliminated so many toxic chemicals from our home!

Happy cleaning!
