Closeup wounded Tree in forest


Today’s Highlighted essential oil is “Copaiba”. Now, if your like me I have never even heard of a copaiba tree. Let alone copaiba essential oil but you are never to old to learn something new. Unlike other essential oils, copaiba is tapped directly from the tree rather than distilled. Copaiba ( essential oil has a pleasant, complex taste, and when taken internally, it can promote overall wellness. Take Copaiba daily as an important part of a daily health regimen.

Add 1-2 drops of Copaiba to a vegetarian gel capsule and take internally daily to promote overall wellness.

Add 1 drop to an herbal tea such as chamomile or rooibos to enjoy the complex flavor and to support a healthy regimen.

Today’s essential oil in the spotlight is Lavender. Aww sweet lavender, I love it!

Lavender is universally regarded as one of the most powerful and versatile essential oils, and t he uses for this plant are almost endless. Lavender essential oil is one of the main Young Living products because it offers a host of benefits and a sweet, floral aroma. It’s been my experience a lot of men do not like lavender but women love it.


Here’s a few uses for you to considerlavender

  • Rubbing Lavender on the feet can cause a calming effect
  • Rubbing a drop of lavender on your pillow may help you sleep
  • Putting a drop of lavender on a bee sting may soothe itching, stinging discomfort
  • Putting 2-3 drops of lavender may help soothe a minor burn
  • Possible help in alleviating the symptoms of motion sickness is to place a drop of Lavender oil on the end of the tongue, around the naval or behind the ears.
  • Rubbing several drops of lavender oil into the scalp may help with flaking
  • Now just a reminder LAVENDER comes in the starter kit or the premium starter kit (best value). The premium starter kit also comes with 9 other essential oils and one bonus oil stress away and that includes a roller top. There is also a diffuser and many more extras. GET YOUR HERE (

Gentle Baby!!! Spotlights on You

I just love Gentle Baby essential Oil. I let my one year old granddaughter smell it and she said mmmmmm! It does smell so good. Here’s what young living says about gentle baby:

Gentle Baby™ is a soft, fragrant combination of essential oils designed specifically for mothers and babies. It helps calm emotions during pregnancy and is useful for quieting troubled little ones. It is also soothing to tender skin. Many of the essential oils in this blend are used in elite cosmetics to enhance a youthful appearance.

I wish I would have known about the benefits of Gentle Baby Essential Oil when I was having my children. I suffered from bouts of postpartum depression. Though mine wasn’t severe, this oil is great for helping with baby blues. It also would have been nice to try when my little one was upset with colic. When I let my one year old granddaughter smell it, she couldn’t get enough. So cute to watch her sniff it in. Here’s a list of uses:


babies/children, bonding, calming, fear and anxiety, comforting, grief and sorrow, emotional heart, calming during labor, relieves stress during and after pregnancy, soothes skin, relaxing, healthy skin, safe for skin, but on a baby always dilute with a carrier oil, just to be on the safe side.gentle baby pic


Homeschooling Helps

Good Monday Morning to you all. I hope your up bright and early and ready to start another school day. I’m thankful that I’ve had a lot of questions about homeschooling lately. That means more moms and dads are joining the ranks of homeschooling and taking control of what there children are learning. I was appalled to find out how young public school is teaching sex education. I really think its smarter to keep our children’s innocence as long as we can. It’s my opinion not to teach them grown up things like that until the reach an age where they are mentally able to comprehend it without laughing and getting completely embarrassed. Now, I am not talking about preventative measures to guard them from crimes against them. I do not believe in leaving them in the dark, but that’s not what the public school system is doing.

Now, finished with that rant and I want to discuss incentives! Incentives are the little things we home school parents do give our children something to strive for. I’ll give you an example: my son had some trouble reading. So, to motivate him we purchase 24 star war lego figures. Every time he read an entire book he was allowed to pick one out. His reading has improved by leaps and bounds. He also wants to read everyday. He wants to earn another guy (as he calls it). It cost me about $16.00. You can also do other things to motivate your children. This is just something we tried and it worked.

So the moral of this blog post. Try incentives when your child is stuck or just lacks enthusiasm concerning a subject. Blessings this school year.

How are Your Manners?

good mannersAre you courteous are you? Do you always say please and thank you? Are you friendly and open with others? Do you say excuse me when leaving the table or room?

Good Morning All! Today I want to talk to you about your manners. Sometimes I think good manners along with modesty are dying words and actions. I’ve noticed in the young people I’m around from children to early twenties, they just don’t seem to have the good manners I see in the adults I also keep company with from day to day.

Why is this? Are they not being taught how to act? Do there parents and peers not know how to conduct themselves in society?

If you think your children will learn good manners at school, you are mistaken.

If you think your children will learn good manners at church, again your wrong.

They should but lets face it they hardly ever listen in social situations.It’s up to us the parents to teach them how to behave. I have small children and grown children and I can tell you I’ve seen them display the worst of me and the best of me. What do I mean by that? My children imitate what I do more than they obey what I say.  I’m sad to say there have been times they have seen me act pretty inappropriately. Most of the time I do strive to show them how to behave but my flesh has gotten the better of me more times than I care to admit.

So, in saying that I want to encourage you to take the time to teach your sweet innocent children how to act and behave. Use your KJV bible to show them the way to a Godly manner. Here are some verses to chew on:

Luke 6:31 – And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
1 Corinthians 15:33 – Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
1 Peter 3:8 – Finally, [be ye] all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, [be] pitiful, [be] courteous:

Romans 12:10 – [Be] kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
Ephesians 4:29 – Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
1 Corinthians 13:4-5 – Charity suffereth long, [and] is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,   (Read More…)
Matthew 15:11 – Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
Titus 3:2 – To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, [but] gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 – What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?   (Read More…)
1 Corinthians 10:27 – If any of them that believe not bid you [to a feast], and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake.

3 Must Have Essential Oils

Good Morning, I’m looking forward to this new year. 2015 has been one for the record books in my life. I’ve known lots of joys this year and became a Granny this year, but we’ve also known lots of heartaches. I am looking forward to learning more and more about essential oils and how they can better my life and yours (i’ll pass all the info on to you).

There are 3 Oils I must have especially this time of year with all the sinus problems and allergies in our home. Those 3 oils are peppermint, lavender, and lemon.GET YOURS HERE: ( Separate they each have distinct uses but together you have an allergy bomb, that really works. Just rub onto the backs of ears, neck, chest, wrist and/or forehead. This mixture really is the bomb! I mix mine with a little grapeseed oil so it doesn’t burn the children or me.

Black Pepper Essential Oil from Young Living is not only used in cooking. Did you know that black pepper essential oil may help tobacco addictions?

Did you know that black pepper essential oil may help toothache, nervous system, heartburn, breathing conditions,helps remove gas from the stomach,

Antirheumatic & Anti-arthritic: These are two of the best qualities of black pepper oil. It is warming, stimulating and improves circulation, thereby giving immediate relief for rheumatism and arthritis, particularly during the winter when the symptoms are aggravated the most. It is also effective in removing toxins like uric acid from the blood, thereby benefiting people suffering from chronic rheumatism, arthritis, and gout.

I love black pepper and I use it everyday, I had no idea it aided in digestion. The essential oil is much more concentrated the your average grated peppercorn. GET YOURS HERE: (
