Are you like me?  I happen to not be good at planning my meals.  Here is my is about 4:30 in the afternoon and I'm starting to get hungry but dinner hasn't been planned yet and there is no food on the stove yet.  What do I end up doing......I go to the cupboard and grab whatever is quick and pound down some carbs or sweets to take away some of the hunger.  
If you made any healthy eating goals for the year, you have just derailed your goal because of some silly lack of planning.  
Now.....I'm not here to wag my finger at you for cheating and not making your goals!  I'm here with a cool recipe that will help you keep on track!!

Teens and Pre-Teens

Pre-Teens, and Teenagers

The pre-teen and teenage years can feel like completely unchartered territory, not only for them, but for us as parents, grandparents, and caretakers as well. The hormones are making their emotions run rampant, peer pressure is stifling, homework and extracurricular stressors are weighing on them, and let’s be honest: they haven’t quite figured out how to positively respond to all of these things yet.
My kids are all grown but my grandkids are in the pre-teen and teenage years.  One day I know them and the next I don't.  The emotions have yo-yo'd.  One day the 16 year old is all hugs and the next it is "Don't touch me!"  I remember my own kids going through these stages and it was hard then too.  I wish that essential oils had been part of my life then.  If they had been, I believe the ups and downs would have been more evened out.  
So, the question can we help them?  Not only them but us as well!
So, let's talk about some essential oils that are great for hormones.  Because, let's face it, the teenager and pre-teen hormones are crazy up and looney down.  Some essential oils that are known as adaptogens have been shown to be helpful in balancing these out. These are:
  • Lavender
  • Lemon
  • Rose
  • Frankincense
  • Lemongrass
  • Sandalwood
  • Clary sage
  • Geranium

So how can you use them?  
Diffuse any of these alone or in combinations each night. You can blend some together for good as well.  Such as Sandalwood with Lavender for a restful night’s sleep.
Topically they benefit teens when used morning and night.  You can use a small essential oil bottle with a roller ball.  Blend oils together such as 10 drops each Clary Sage, Frankincense, and Lavender, then top with a carrier oil, and roll onto wrists and throat regularly.
Have your teens suffered from lack of focus? Between school work, friends, sometimes jobs, and those pesky hormones again, it can be difficult for them to concentrate. Try using one or a combination of the following essential oils:
  • Frankincense
  • Ylang ylang
  • Sandalwood
  • Lime
  • Peppermint
  • Rosemary

Ways to use: mix with carrier oils and apply to the bottoms of the feet and wrists, or diffuse somewhere nearby, especially during times of study. A great combination is Frankincense, Ylang ylang, and Peppermint. Rosemary is particularly helpful improving memory.
Teen moodiness 
How many times have your pre-teen or teens been so moody and grumpy that they are barely socialable with their family let alone their friends.  Some teen may need more and need some therapy.  But, you may find that one of the best routes to start with natural remedies.  
Some favorite mood busters include:
  • Ylang ylang
  • Bergamot
  • Roman Chamomile
  • Frankincense
  • Lavender
  • Clary sage
  • Geranium
  • Orange
  • Lemon
  • Valor (for fear)
  • Cypress (for confidence)

Ways to use: diffuse any of these or any combination pretty much around the clock, or as often as your teen is near a diffuser. Diffusing these overnight is especially helpful. You can also apply these topically, morning and night.
A great combination is equal parts Ylang ylang, Bergamot, and Lavender. Wonderful for moods and will also aid in a restful night’s sleep - because not getting enough sleep won’t help the crankiness!  And we all know that teens require an huge amount of sleep and usually don't get it.

Kick the sugar out!

Are you over sugar, yet?
Did December eating get you sluggish, heavier and more?
Are you ready to kick this sugar habit to the curb and propel yourself to a healthier eating habit?
There are a lot of ways to help your eating habits.  Some people may opt for Keto, Paleo, Gluten/Sugar free or whatever!  No matter what way of eating you start, you really should have a good sugar detox to start you off right.  Young Living has your back!!  Their 5-day Nutritive Cleanse is designed to reset your system to get you on track toward a healthier eating style.
So, let's talk about what it contains and how it will help you reset.
•Balance Complete (BC) - a super-food meal replacement shake high in soluble and insoluble fiber. It is perfectly balanced in prebiotics. This shake gently removes toxins and excess fat from the digestive tract. This replaces three meals a day.
•Digest & Cleanse capsule - a proprietary blend of peppermint, caraway, lemon and other essential oils to reduce gas and soothe the intestinal tract. This is taken 30-60 minutes before each BC meal.
•Ningxia Red supplies natural antioxidants and essential nutrients to further assist in detoxification.

This trio is very easy to use too!  Don't let the word cleanse scare you.  Here are some simple instructions on how to use it.

•Take a Digest and Cleanse capsule 30-60 minutes before each BC with plenty of water.
•Each “meal” consists of two scoops of BC blended with 8oz. water, milk or plant-based milk of your choice and 2-4 oz. Ningxia Red (expert tip: don’t ration or skimp on your Ningxia, this is a time to take all you need!)
•Three snacks a day as per the booklet that comes with the cleanse kit.

Stick to the plan for ONLY five days. The detox involved can be fairly gentle, or a little more difficult, especially if you’re coming off of a “season of sugar”. Headaches and malaise are the challenges, but 3-4 days in and you should notice the subsiding of lethargy, replaced with increased energy and decreased hunger level.
The completion of this cleanse is so rewarding as you have now detoxed from sugar and you’ve reset your body to begin your healthier eating journey!

If you would like to try the cleanse and you aren't a Young Living member yet, I can tell you how membership has it benefits!  If you aren't ready for a membership but want the cleanse kit, we can help get it to you!  The cost of the kit would be the retail price (less 15% discount gift from us) plus Shipping and tax (as taxed in your area).  No tax if you are in Oregon.

Bath Time with Mold!

Happy New Year to everyone!  New Year's is a time when people think about changing things up in their lives, purging the house of unwanted items, or starting the cleaning process.  So.....let's talk about a cleaning process that many of us never really think of!  Do your kids or grandkids LOVE bath time?  How about playing with toys.  If your kids are like mine were, you can never have 'too many" toys.  One particular toy they loved was a plastic horse that looked like a carousel rocking horse.  It was so cute but after a few baths, the inside of that horse was almost black with mold and who knows what other bacteria was inside there!  I would have to pop off the head and try to clean it out but you could never really get it all.
Some of the other toys were harder because all they had was a squeaker hold.  You can try to squeeze out the water but it never really gets the inside clean.  I've even heard of some people glue gunning the hole so the water can't get it.  But....once that water gets in it is almost impossible to clean.  I want you to think about this for a minute.  If you haven't cleaned the toy so all the mold is gone, the bacteria from it is released into the tub when they play with that toy again.  Can you say YUCK!!  I don't want bacteria in the tub with my littles.
I know some people clean bath toys with bleach.  Oh My!!  Bleach is said to get rid of mold but it actually doesn’t. It just “bleaches” the mold making it look like it's gone. I'm not sure how true that is but I just don't like the idea of soaking the toys in bleach then letting the kids bathe with them either.  No matter how you try to clean them, getting mold out from inside the toys is difficult.
One of the best ways I’ve heard of is to clean bath toys is with Vinegar and Essential Oils.
Here is how you can do it:
1. Mix 1 cup of distilled white vinegar to 1 gallon of hot water and 6 drops of Tea Tree essential oil in a clean sink or clean bucket
2. Make sure to fill each bath toy with the vinegar/essential oil/water mixture (until they are totally full)
3. Throw all of the toys in the sink (or bucket) and let them soak for at least 30 minutes or even an hour
4. Wash the outside of each toy with Thieves Hand Soap and when you rinse them make sure to squeeze out ALL of the vinegar water from inside of the toy.
5. Let them dry completely before you use them again in the bath!
Isn't that pretty simple?  You might want to do this at least once a month or more.  Depends on how many baths are taken.
