Yes, I STILL Sneak Out The House

You might be a mom if..... sneak out the house when you want to run a quick errand.

Why is it that the second I start brushing my teeth that my kids one by one start coming out of their hidey holes and asking me where I'm going? Can't a mom decide to brush her teach at 2:48 in the afternoon without the 3rd degree?

When my kids were little it was a no brainer that I had to take my kids every where I went. But some have turned into adults and some into young adults. "No", just doesn't seem to end the conversations like it used to when they were little. Now they want a PowerPoint presentation and a 500 word essay on how I became deceived by my "No, we're not getting that". With 4 still left at home, errands have become a barrage of can we's, please mom's, and look ma! look ma! look ma's.

Can I get a witness?

You CAN Teach An Old Dog New Tricks!

I have a new "Mommy Hero" to add to my list. Her name is Kim Sorgius. I was introduced to her blog, Not Consumed, by another great blog, ( Homeschool Giveaways & Freebies ). Kim has new freebies weekly for new subscribers to her amazing blog.

One of those freebies was a combo DIY Breakfast Station Kit. OH MY! Let me tell you how freeing this product was for me. I know it sounds silly since I am a mom to 8 and have been in this career field for 27 years, but yes indeed, you CAN teach an old dog new tricks!

Kim's combo DIY Breakfast Station Kit includes 6 extremely yummy breakfast meals, recipes, a shopping list, assembly instructions, printing labels with heating and/or serving instructions, and a menu to post for what is available for an ending result of approximately 30 breakfast servings each 6 meal kit! I now have approximately 180 breakfasts (I've only prepared Kit 1 so far) in my freezer/pantry that only need to be either heated up or served by my kids with no extra assistance from me. I will accomplish Kit 2 with our next grocery budget. Kit 1 only cost me approximately $90 ($5 towards storage tubs and I had basic staples already on hand) so that was on average $0.50 per meal!!!

Here are some of my end results from my first cooking session. The kids were able to help me with much of the assembly and/or cooking process. This is NOT all the meals but wanted to give you a sneak peak to some of them.

Energy Balls

Muffins and Breakfast Burritos

Granola Bars
The DIY Breakfast Station Kits are no longer a freebie BUT it is still at an amazingly great price. I am hooked! If that isn't amazing enough she also has 2 different DIY Lunch Station Kits that I cannot wait to tackle next. RIGHT NOW until Oct 8 you can capture a 40% off coupon code for the DIY Lunch Station Kits only at Homeschool Giveaways & Freebies Subscription is always FREE to this site so I highly recommend subscribing to receive their awesome heads-up freebies and deals.

No Bake Bites With Thieves!

For those who are discovering more clever ways for your kids to ingest essential oils (Young Living is the ONLY brand that I would EVER recommend ingesting and here's why!!!), here is my favorite method so far.

Elizabeth Medero has a wonderfully yummy fall recipe just perfect for including Young Living Thieves essential oil into the body. She calls them Thieves No Bake Bites. Here is her extremely cute video that will show you how to make this easy and quick snack.

For those unfamiliar with Thieves essential oil you are probably asking, "Why on earth is it called Thieves?" So glad you asked!! Thieves® was created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. This proprietary essential oil blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities. It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health. (This statement as not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.)

Comment here let Elizabeth and I know how you and your kids liked them!

Why Young Living Keeps Running Out of Oils and Why I Don't Mind

If you are a customer with Young Living, you have most certainly tried to order an oil recently that is OOS (Out Of Stock). Frustrating? Yes. Should it be? No....and here is my reason why I choose not to be.

The entire reason why Young Living is the ONLY brand of essential oil products that I will use or recommend is their Seed to Seal guaranty. Seed to Seal means that Young Living controls every aspect of every plant they use from the beginning of where and how the seeds came into existence to the very end when they seal their bottles for shipment.

Either Young Living owns the farm from which the seeds come or they are in direct partnership with the farms. Young Living's quality control goes way beyond what any law deems is satisfactory. Young Living's quality control assures me that there are no dangerous chemicals in any product. What they list is what you get. No secret ingredients, additives, or impurities here.

Because of this quality control and the fact that Young Living products come from plants....well....plants have seasons and they have life spans. Sometimes Young Living just plainly runs out of plants. Because Young Living refuses to thin their oils with additives to make them last longer sometimes we have to wait for the next crop.

If you do not currently have a distributer and you would like to make a purchase please visit me here.

Our Emotional Memories to Smells

Did you know our amygdala will only respond to the sense of smell? 

What is an amygdala (ah-MIG-dah-lah) you ask? 

This is the portion of the brain that is the central headquarters of our limbic system which stores our emotional experiences. 

The key to much of our physical healing rests in releasing these emotional experiences that when trapped can make us sick. 

Just simply smelling pure therapeutic oils can immediately begin a release of bottled up emotions.

In my last post I discussed the benefits of a Zyto scan and how it works. This scan can also reveal if there are certain emotions that could possibly be linked to certain products the Zyto scan recommends. 

Contact me if you desire a Zyto scan or would like to learn more about how Young Living pure therapeutic oils can assist your different body systems.

ZYTO Scanning

The other evening a dear friend of mine and I had an opportunity to perform Zyto scanning on 16 individuals. We had men, women, and even children participating.

What is ZYTO scanning? Basically, a ZYTO scan is a tool that reads the body through bio-communication much like a lie detector does. By interacting energetically with the body the ZYTO software will essentially "ask the body questions" and record the body's responses or "answers". This extremely short video can help explain. 

My favorite aspect of the scan is that it allows my body to communicate to me what it lacks nutritionally. My latest scan told me that Melaleuca Alternifolia and Mountain Savory could bring my baseline markers back into range. 

These two essential oils are excellent in assisting the immune system. 

If you live in the Coweta/Broken Arrow/Tulsa area and are interested in receiving a ZYTO scan and a consult of the results please feel free to contact me at my facebook here

UPDATE: After using Melaleuca and Mountain Savory faithfully for one month I can testify that my immune system was much improved!

Dehydrating The Harvest Abundance

One of my favorite reasons for gardening is having lots of healthy food around that I've grown. It means that I know where it came from, what exactly is in it, and that it was picked at a ripe time. The sad part of growing is knowing that each food's season must come to an end. So how can we have our yummy home grown food around during the off-season? Dehydrating!

A dear friend recommended to me an excellent book on food dehydration. "Dry It You'll Like It" written by Gen MacManiman is a simple oldie but goody. You can download the pdf of this book for free here.

In this book you will find all the instructions needed to dehydrate various types of foods like fruits, vegetables, herbs grains, meats, and even fish. There are also recipes for leathers and snacks. My favorite aspect of the book is the plans, materials lists, and building instructions to build a dehydrator of my own.

Living Foods Dehydrators are unique in that no fan is required. They use their own specially designed Warm Air Generator (WAG) that allows low temperature heat (100-110 degrees) to rise taking the moisture right up with it. The key is in the air moving freely within the compartment. The cabinet design allows for that circulation with no fan necessary.

If you do not desire to build your own dehydrator Living Foods Dehydrators have both kits and complete cabinets that you may purchase here.
