Yous guys. Young Living has changed mine and my family’s lives.
4 years ago I saw this kit (next slide) with a lot of skepticism. I had friends posting about how it’d changed their lives but I wasn’t really feeling it. Enter Kenya and Allison.
Kenya turned 5 the day after they moved in with us. How traumatic is that for a 5 year old kid?! Couple that with the other things Kenya had going on in her life and it was WAY more than most kiddos can handle. I was getting a big push from DSS to look into other options to support her transition into our home and into kindergarten... but it didn’t feel right.
I saw @bumberjoy posting on IG about oils so the Green in me decided to research it. I researched for a year. I not only researched essential oils themselves, but oil companies as well. I wasn’t in it to smell pretty, I wanted actual benefits. I finally decided Young Living was the best company on the market, yet I still wasn’t confident oils actually “worked”. I decided a test run on the cheaper oils. I got a bottle that was premixed roller that included all the oils I knew she needed. Did I see results? Yep. Small ones, but results nonetheless. I decided at that point to jump in with YL. I grabbed a kit because I’m a sucker for a good deal and I knew I’d be ordering again so I wanted that coveted 24% off 😂. First week we had these oils the difference was ASTOUNDING. I also began using them on myself, Shane, and Allison and never looked back.
Now through May 25 you can grab the dewdrop or desert mist Premium Starter Kits for 10% off the already nearly 50% off price. Plus, I love the oils so much I’m offering an ADDITIONAL $25 Account Credit. Who you sign up with really does matter. This community is amazing and you’re never alone. Ive never met a better group of women and men to walk along side with in this health journey. Join the team via profile link.... Or send me a PM if you want to know more about my story or have questions. I won’t bug you afterwards!
It is with great sadness that I am writing this post. This evening in Salt Lake City, Utah, surrounded by his family, Young Living Essential Oils founder Gary Young passed away. Gary was always full of life and adventures while on this earth. His knowledge of essential oils, healthy lifestyle, and his desire to only offer the best and purest products on the market was what set YLEO apart. His products have not only blessed my family but many others as well, chasing our lives forever. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. #yleo#youngliving#younglivingessentialoils#garyyoung#founder#farmer#thymeandwellness#thisamazingoilylife
Some days honey dark chocolate & Dragon Time are the only way I get through the day.... Let me honest with you: I don’t like how Dragon Time smells. It’s a mix of Fennel, Clary Sage, Marjoram, Lavender, Blue Yarrow, & Jasmine... but here’s the kicker- I don’t use it for its smell. That’s the thing about essential oils. TRUE essential oils are NOT perfume. They are therapeutic. Are there oils that smell amazing?! Absolutely! Can you wear them as a scent? Absolutely! But that’s not why I’m oily. I’m oily for how oils work within my body to help me run in tip top shape. Nothing has changed my quality of life more than Dragon Time.
Men- stop reading now or continue to read if you want to help out your wife. ➕Dragon Time is a proprietary blend known to make your menstrual cycle non bothersome. Mother Nature liked to come in like a Dragon every single month for as long as I can remember. Since discovering DT, Mother Nature is actually forgettable. Yep! I said it: FORGETTABLE. I throw a roller ball directly on top of my bottle then I swipe my lower abdomen at the first twing. After that, one to two times a day as needed for the remainder of her visit. There are actual days when I forget she’s around. Life changer.
We’ve completely converted to using only Thieves Household Cleaner in our house... THIS IS WHY!! Kristina Carter did this awesome experiment with her family- they swiped the bottoms of their shoes to see what would grow. (Side Note: this is why we don’t allow shoes in our house 🤢) Here’s each dish and it’s corresponding Cleaner:
3️⃣Control- no cleaner
7️⃣Thieves Household Cleaner
8️⃣Method All Purpose
9️⃣Clorox with Bleach
Here’s what’s in my March Wellness Box.... ➕Thieves Household Cleaner Sample Packets for friends ➕Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier for friends ➕Thieves Laundry Soap- lasts for.eva!! Seriously- over 120 washes with this small bottle. It’s so concentrated! ➕Lavender Hand & Body Lotion- the only lotion that works on my winter skin plus it smells heavenly so that’s a plus! ➕Northern Lights Black Spruce- my favorite nighttime diffuser oil & Shane’s favorite oil in his aftershave roller ball blend. ➕Dragon Time- because I can’t slay Mother Natures dragon without this bottle of gold every month. ➕Citrus Fresh Vitality- so good in NingXia Red, or in whipped cream as a fruit dip. ➕R.C.- you can’t do season changes without RC. ➕Thieves Vitality- Thieves tea, or in capsules, TV is a must year round.
FREEBIES: ➕Thieves Household Cleaner- the absolute ONLY cleaner we use on our house: wood, tile, glass, ceramic, granite, stainless steel... the list goes on. ➕Thieves Glass Spray Bottle- So cute! Great bottle for my Thieves Household Cleaner. ➕Thieves dish soap- so much yes. ➕Citrus Fresh- diffuse for the most yummy, clean, uplifting scent! ➕Hope- name says it all. We love our emotional wellness oils! ➕Lemon Vitality- I love this in my NingXia Red, Thieves Tea, and more.
You guys- I purchased 9 things and got 6 things free- and not 6 crappy things I’ll never use & that collect dust, but things I use Every. Single. Day. Ummm... hello clean house with 3 kids!
I’m very excited to announce that for the remainder of February I am partnering with @theisaiahcloset to help children in foster care. As you know, I’m a huge foster care advocate. Shane and I have been therapeutic and medically fragile foster parents since 2013.
The Isaiah Closet has got some big goals to hit and I want to help them get there. For every Premium Starter Kit purchased through me the for the next 5 days, I will donate $50 in your honor.
This money will help go towards a new building to expand not only the foster care clothing closet, but offer a safe space for the children, as well as education and training for upcoming and current foster parents.
Grab my link in my profile to join T&W in your wellness journey through oils and also in helping children in the foster care system.
Together we can make a difference in these children’s lives!

Thieves. You’re my real Valentine. jk
I’ve had the same Valentine for 20 years. Two decades. What?
This weekend as we did this parenting gig together and watched our sick little guy around the clock I was so thankful for Thieves. In our diffusers, on the bottoms of our feet, in our a NingXia.
My honorary Valentine this year is definitely Thieves.
My real Valentine, well we’ll be using some other oils later. Thank you Thieves for saving our Valentine’s Day. 👊🏻🌹❤️
You remember when we were in middle school and Guess jeans were all the rage.
My mom wouldn’t buy me any. Instead I was stuck with Arizona jeans from JC Penney. They were okay and all but they didn’t have that cool little triangle on the back pocket.
I think that little experience in middle school shaped something in me. It started me on the “cheaper is always better” path of life.
That little experience and being broke because you suddenly wanted to be a stay at home mom and hadn’t really made a plan. Yeah that cemented my thrifty ways.
Until one day when I purchased a bottle of lavender from Walmart. And said Lavender burned my skin. Ouch!
The truth is folks that all essential oils are not created equal. They’re just not.
There I said it.
Boom 💥. I love my friends and their kids and their organs and their skin too much to not say this. It’s the truth.
Know your farm. Know your farmer I say.
My business life has been crazy. So blessed, but so crazy.
The Isaiah Closet has taken off. Which has me all 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 but also it's been a lot to take in.
I'm just a few months away from my next big goal with YL-- which will more than double my current pay check and that also has me like 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 A breakdown of how I'm using these oils--

Joy to make me 🤗
Clarity to keep me 👩🏼💻

Our girls get a diffuser in their room, because they don't feel the need to disassemble everything. I can't trust my boys to do the same 😂 so they get oils rubbed straight on them at night. I'm currently obsessed with Orange, so this time I substituted orange in place of lemongrass.
A new sleepy spray. 😴
Orange+Peace and Calming mixed in witch hazel and water.
Did you know we have a line of oils that's JUST FOR KIDS!? 👶🏽👧🏼👧🏾👦🏼👦🏽👱🏻♀️And it's the most delicious smelling bunch of drops from heaven. 💧Actually, it's made prediluted and safe for little bodies but I probably use these for myself as much as we use them for our kiddos. This line is some of my favorite YL products and I never let a bottle run out without a backup on hand! 🌿
Swipe through and read about each of the KidScents oils, then message me with your questions. (Pst... anyone who's in my oil community who grabs this line of oils will be getting a free😱 AromaSpinner from me! Go back to my last post to check out the AromaSpinner!)
