TWO- This Week’s Oil: EndoFlex

A friend of mine posted on Facebook recently on natural solutions for PMS.  Today’s oil is PMS related-EndoFlex. EndoFlex is a Young Living Blend, meaning there are several oils coming together to make this oil. EndoFlex “amplifies metabolism and vitality and creates hormonal balance” according to the Essential Oils Pocket Reference, p. 128. I really enjoy having and reading my EDR (essential desk reference) because I learn so much from it every time I read.  Since we are discussing help for PMS you may be asking how EndoFlex can help. Here are the oils in this blend and...

Manic Monday- Dallas Pet Expo in 6 days!

Wow. I haven’t participated in an expo/trade show/convention type thing in a LONG time! I am grateful for the folks that have helped me prepare for this one! “What”, you may be asking, “do essential oils have to do with pets?” That is a very good question. Let’s think logically about this for a second. As a human, we choose to do things to and for ourselves (eat right or not, exercise or not, get sleep or not) and we hope that those things lead to a more fulfilling life. We also usually choose, responsibly I hope, to have pets. As pet parents, it is our...

TWO! This Week’s Oil – BrainPower

Two posts in a row. Wow, Brain Power must be working! Yes, there really is an oil called “Brain Power” and I love it. I have friends who love it and I’ll be it if you use it, you’ll love it. It’s like FOCUS in a bottle. I think better almost than Clarity Oil but I’m not sure why. Brain Power smells good and it works. It’s the Daily Double of Essential oil perfection. In my last post, I said that I usually kept my magazines for 12 months. Today (actually in the middle of the night) I woke up (literally) and said to myself (silently) “I better...

Magazine Monday- What’s for dinner?

Magazine Monday- What’s for dinner?

Ok, “Magazine Monday” sounds almost cheesy (or nutritional yeast-y for my vegan friends), but it’s what I’ve thought about for a long time. It also helps me remember that I’ve got stuff to share, and not everyone reads the same things. Before I dive into the sharing, tell me: 1) Do you subscribe to print magazines?  If the answer to #1 is Yes, what are your favorites? How long have you been reading that particular mag? Do you run to the mailbox every month when it arrives? If the answer to #1 is No, why not? Are you an “online only” mag person? Which...

Gratitude (and yes, there’s an oil for that!)

Gratitude (and yes, there’s an oil for that!)

Gratitude. Grateful. What does this mean to you? How do you show gratitude? Is gratitude the same as appreciation? Is gratitude only an action, or is it an attitude? So many thoughts for one….what is it? Mindset? See, there’s another question! Briefly (right, I’m never brief), let’s explore some gratitude and the oil that is Gratitude. Those folks at Wiki say this about gratitude: “Gratitude, thankfulness, gratefulness, or appreciation is a feeling or attitude in acknowledgment of a benefit that one has received or will receive. The experience of gratitude has...
