young living/starting our journey with essential oils

One of my favorite things about blogging has been my ability to share things I love and use with my followers.  I don't review items often - in fact, those types of posts are few and far between and very infrequently sponsored - but when things like Merlin's Magic Sleepsuit, Sakura Bloom Ring Slings, and my Lily Jade bag come into my life, I can't help but share!  Lately I've been improving our life with essential oils from Young Living, and I wanted to tell you a little bit about my favorite oils, and why I'm so crazy about them.  

(and.....to make you look at this cute photo)

As you might have noticed, I'm pretty into being a "natural mama."  I babywear, we cloth diaper (I promise I'm going to share more on this soon!), and generally just try to keep things simple.  So when I started to want to address issues like immunity from winter sickness & Claire having sleep troubles, I wanted to do so as naturally as possible.  I've been lucky enough to find an online "village" of sorts via Instagram & Facebook, and that's how I found essential oils.  

I was totally skeptical.  Although I love going the natural route, let's be honest, it doesn't always work.  I'm the kind of person who, if I have a headache, I'm going to take a freaking Advil.  Because it will fix my headache!  Even if it's not my favorite route, I want results.  So when the peppermint oil in my kit fixed my headache the first time I used it, I was intrigued.  

When Darrell and I got into a "discussion" (really, an argument) and we both worked through it in a cool and calm way while I just happened to be diffusing "Peace & Calming" I was surprised.  

When Claire made it through a 3 hour car ride with an amazing nap and no tears, after I put lavender & coconut oil on her feet, I was convinced.  

Now, I'm using these oils every single day, all day long.  Peace & Calming in our diffuser is definitely a favorite, but they all have so much purpose.  I wanted to focus on Peace & Calming & Lavender first, because who couldn't use more peace and calm in their life?  

I like to dab Peace & Calming on my wrists if I'm about to do something stressful - like, say, if I'm headed to the DMV.  Lavender is always on hand in the kitchen, because if you mix it with coconut oil it cuts the unfortunate pain of a burn (I'm a total klutz.)  Every night before we lay her down, Claire gets a little lavender mixed with coconut oil rubbed onto the bottoms of her feet.  If I'm having issues with bad dreams (like when I'm pregnant!) I dab a tiny bit onto my temples "neat" before bed.  Sundays aren't the same without some Peace & Calming diffusing while we drink our morning coffee and pick our Netflix show for the day - come on, you do it too!  Sundays are for Netflix!
