Just as fear has risen in people, it has also risen in dogs. Things like fear of thunderstorms, fireworks and even fear of being left alone are common concerns I hear from other pet owners. I'm going to offer my suggestion of how this happens and then give you action steps to having a calmer dog.Read more...
Other than carrying a rolled up newspaper, or fly swatter around, how DO YOU keep mosquitoes, flies, ticks, fleas, spiders, gnats and the like from biting or taking up residence on you, or your beloved dog, the natural way? (Yes, oils can safely be used on your furry friend too. I'll cover that in my next post.)Read more...
Health is an investment.
I know, I know. I know that doesn’t mean the money magically appears to make this said investment.
I know that doesn’t make organic, healthy foods any cheaper.
I get it. I do. Afterall, we live on one income, so I’m speaking from experience.
But I also know that we put the money we DO have toward the things that are important to us.
I don’t know what’s important to you, but healthy living is very important to me and I have done my best to find the resources to live a healthy lifestyle.
Why I'm glad I continue to make the investment
A year ago I learned my body was overloaded with mold toxicity. It was the answer I had been digging to find for over ten years. Not a fun answer to hear, but a relief to be able to pinpoint the problem behind my health struggles.
Thankfully, long before I knew about the mold, I had made a point of getting rid of the toxins I DID know about. I ditched and switched things like laundry detergent, cleaning products, deodorant and other body care items. I read labels and carefully considered everything I brought into my home.
I can’t even imagine how sick I would have gotten if I had not made these changes. At the time, I had no idea the extent I was benefiting my body by using essential oils over store bought plug-ins and air fresheners. I had no idea how oils were cleansing my body and giving it a leg up when it was struggling to survive. Literally, my body has been in chronic stress and survival mode for at least ten years and everything I was doing right was helping it stay afloat.
All I can say is, I’m so glad I found the money to pour into my health. So glad.
How did I afford it?
I want to show you something?
This is the receipt from the loyalty rewards points I just redeemed. I purchase things like toothpaste, mouthwash, supplements, cleaning products, oils, skin care, etc.. monthly. Things I use on a daily basis to help me with my hormones, sleep, digestion, mood, and so much more. Each month I also get a giant 25% coupon (points that add up month to month) to use toward a future purchase.
This receipt shows the “purchase” I just made. I paid something like 7.99 for shipping and received $154.25 worth of product- FREE. Do you see how valuable Frankincense is (If you find it for much less than this, I encourage you to question your source) and I’ve been redeeming my points for this oil for years. Only on occasion have I paid full price. Frankincense is nicknamed the "king of all oils" because of all it's amazing benefits. I use it improve my skin and strengthen my immune health. I also like to diffuse it for a calming, grounding aroma. I even use it on my senior dogs!
That my friends, is just one way I can afford my healthy living lifestyle.
If you're interested in a healthier lifetyle, but don't know how to afford, let me assure you, Loyalty Rewards, Replacement Buying can help you. Incorporating a monthly wellness box into your budget is not out of your reach!
Do you like to dream? Are you looking for a way to make your dreams come true?
Maybe my story will inspire you.
I learned early on that I want to be the boss of myself and my time. Thankfully, God opened the door to do just that. He sweetened the deal with a cherry on top by giving me a job and a purpose I could pour my whole heart into. It’s not just a job to me.
You shouldn't neglect your body when you think of spring cleaning. The products you use will affect your health in either a positive or negative way. The bleach you may use to clean the grout damages your respiratory system and may cause headaches. It did to me. So many cleaners come with warnings and are filled with chemicals that are unsafe. On the other hand, using Young Living essential oils, along with the famous Thieves household Cleaner (which I’ll talk about) , can go a long way in doing a much needed positive spring cleaning in your body.Read more...
