Hi guys I hope you all had a great Christmas.  We sure did!   I wanted toEssential Oils Can Save You Money share a little something I am currently trying to focus on this month and into the New Year.  I am going to try to ditch some of the chemicals I am using in my house and as personal care products on my family and I.  I have been using Young Living Oils now for a few years but I have never realized until recently that they have so many uses.  So many people say that oils are expensive but I have to disagree.  I thought I would give you 10 ways essential oils can save us money and help us stay healthy too!  So here you go!  


  1. You don’t have to buy room sprays, candles or plug-in’s anymore— diffuse Purification + Lemon  or Lavender + Lemon or  Frankincense + Stress Away!
  2. You don’t have to run to the store for something on the shelf when your oils at home do the trick— Thieves for immune system, RC for chest rub, Lavender on accidents in the kitchen and scars while. Purification on blemishes, Lemon to detox, and more!
  3. You don’t have to buy fancy face makeup wipes or washes  when you can make your own at home.  Try this amazing oil cleanse .  It smells so good and it works!   I love it!  
  4. You don’t have to buy veggie wash anymore— just put your veggies and fruit in the sink or stainless steel bowl with water and add 3-5 drops Lemon and some vinegar!  So easy and so inexpensive over time!
  5. You don’t have to buy household cleaner anymore— make your own with water and Thieves!   Check this out: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PZFmyfpjJ_s
  6. You don’t have to buy scented Epsom salts, body scrubs or lotions anymore—add your own oils to the salts or lotions! 1 cup Epsom salts with 3-5 drops Panaway or Lavender! I love peppermint body scrub post workout!  So invigorating.  
  7. You can replace your perfume with Stress Away, Frankincense, or Thieves!  My favorites are Stress Away and Joy!
  8. You can make your own hand soaps, salves, and lotions using oils and natural ingredients! Hand soap: 1 Tablespoon Unscented Castile Soap, water, and 10 drops Thieves and Lemon essential oils then put in a foaming pump!
  9. You don’t have to buy breath freshener anymore— use Peppermint instead!
  10. The oils keep your immune system up so ya know, less trips to the store and the doctor— use Thieves, Frankincense, Lemon and RC!

These are just a few ways!  Sometimes people say “ Wow, the Starter Kit is Young Living Starter Kitexpensive.”  I always try to be mindful of our budgets BUT I also have to stress the importance of how the Premium Starter Kit can save your household money and you will be using less chemicals on your family too!

Friday Faves: The Squatty Potty and DIY Poo Spray

Happy Friday!  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and got to enjoy the yummy food and festivities.  Is anyone else out there shopping on Black Friday?  My mom and I have a tradition and we go every year. It’s fun to hang out and get some awesome deals.  Although shopping is not my favorite I still like to go.  

Today’s Friday fave may be a little TMI for some of you but I just have to share it.  I had been contemplating getting a Squatty Potty since I saw it on Shark Tank years ago.  I finally got one a few months ago and I love it!!!!  If you are not familiar with the Squatty Potty check out this hilarious commercial.  It pretty much explains how it works in a humorous way.  By the way I got mine at Costco!  Great deal!

I will spare you all the details but if you have ever dealt with constipation you need this in your life.  It works people!!!  

As long as we are on the subject you also need this DIY Poo Spray to go with your squatty potty.  Get rid of those aerosol sprays for a more natural cleaner version.  Put this in your bathroom and people will be glad you did!  

DIY Poo Spray Recipe DIY poo spray

  • 2 Teaspoon Rubbing Alcohol
  • 20-30 Drops Essential Oils (I like orange, lemon, and lavender) 
  • Distilled Water

Add essential oils and rubbing alcohol to a 4oz glass spray bottle.  Fill the remainder with distilled water.  Spray to freshen the room or spray in the toilet before you go.

I only use Young Living Essential Oils.  They are the best!  

I hope you guys enjoy the holiday weekend.  I would love to hear your thoughts on the squatty potty!  Have a great weekend!
