Hello lovely people! I’m cozy in my sweats on this cold winter day dreaming of oily recipes to make. I can’t wait to dive into March and share new products during Natural Beauty Month! I will be posting skincare, make-up, and body products to my Instagram account at http://instagram.com/peaceloveessentials and here!

I’d love to hear what natural products you use, especially when it comes to make-up!

And keep an eye out for an AWESOME incentive or two this month!

Lots of love,
Megan

TRUTH

If you’re following along, you may have noticed I’ve been at a hault. There’s no explination other than I’m new to consistent blogging. Last month I joined several others in my Young Living community and dove into the My Healthy Day Challenge. It was eye-opening, and I learned a lot about eating clean. I felt energized with 4 workouts per week. But after successfully completing this milestone, I admittedly caved. “My “diet” is over. Now I can celebrate!” Enter Superbowl Sunday. Pizza, dip, chips, cheese, cookies, some veggies, more chips. What!? Yea, I’m not proud. I ashamedly stepped on the scale and to my UTTER disappointment had put on about 5 lbs! I celebrated my accomplishment so nonchalantly, and honestly feel defeated.

I am not trying to hide anything here. Rather, I’m stating the TRUTH. I just went on vacation and had more cheat meals than I care to admit. When I arrived back in town I just felt unhealthy. I went to bed Sunday night without dinner. I wasn’t hungry. And to my surprise (and delight), I woke up at 5:30 a.m. for a bootcamp class that turned into a private training session. Living a healthy lifestyle is not about good choices here and there. It is about consistency. It’s about determination. It’s will power. It’s saying “no” (and “yes”) to become the best version of you!

I am thankful for friends and family who love me no matter my slip ups. I adore my Young Living community for rooting me on and being the best encouragers. If you feel stuck in a rut, you’re not alone. If you want to live a more healthy lifestyle (while creating financial freedom), I’d LOVE to help you! Simply leave your email in the comments section or email me at peaceloveessentials@gmail.com. I will be in touch with some information I know you will use.

Peace + Love,

Essential Rewards: October 2014

Hello oily friends! I am so excited to share with you my FIRST Essential Rewards (ER) order. For those not familiar, ER is a monthly auto-ship program offered by Young Living. The minimum is $50/month and $100/month if you’d like to receive commissions. I know what you are thinking! I don’t have an extra $50-100/month to spend on oils. OK, OK…I fell victim to this same thought myself! And I’ll let you in on a little secret. I am UNEMPLOYED and have been for almost 1 whole year!

The thing is, aren’t we already spending monthly earnings on medical bills, doctors visits, medicine, vitamins, shampoo, soap, and toothpaste? Why not rearrange your budget and spend that money on Young Living’s healthy products? There are so many testimonies out there where people are visiting doctors less and less as a result of Young Living.

My October ER loot: 30 Ningxia Red 2-ounce packets; Lavender samples, Lemon + Thieves + Lavender + Orange essential oils, Nourishing Lip Balm Collection (Cinnamint, Lavender, Vanillamint), Product Guides, & the October promo (Nutmeg + Orange + Cinnamon Bark essential oils).

What did you order this month if you are an Essential Rewards member? If not, what would you order?

Let’s Talk About Thieves

IMG_0627.JPG
If you are into essential oils and don’t have Thieves, it is an absolute must! And if you’ve never tried essential oils, it is still an absolute must! Thieves oil is highly antiviral, antiseptic, anti-infectious, and antibacterial. “It was created from research based on a group of 15th-century thieves who rubbed on oils to avoid contracting the plague while they robbed the bodies of the dead and dying.”*

Thieves is a blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptas Radiata, and Rosemary. Studies conducted have demonstrated the killing power of these oils against airborne microorganisms.

In conclusion, Thieves is the go-to oil as you begin to feel ill or simply want to clear away germs. Young Living has an entire Thieves line including hand wash, toothpaste, and antibacterial spray. Applying the oil to your feet or diffusing it into the air will work with you as we move into flu season.

My good friend and essential oil guru, Ashley, loves to organize her oils on this vintage spice rack.

I recently spied this creative and fun oil tree on Etsy! I mean, really!?!?!?

I’d love to hear how you keep your essential oils nice and tidy? Or are they scattered around your house like mine?
