If your doggo buddy very recently left a puddle on the living room carpet, use these instructions for removing fresh stains:

  3. Blot the “accident” to remove excess moisture.

Lavender essential oil.

Ironically, I used to hate the smell of lavender essential oil. It was one of the first essential oils I was introduced to by a friend but it was a different brand, not Young Living. Unfortunately, I didn’t understand that I was smelling an inferior quality of lavender essential oil which was causing my negative reaction. Once I tried Young Living’s lavender oil I became a huge fan! Young Living has three farms that grow lavender, located in Utah, Idaho, and France. I’ve walked the lavender fields in the Idaho and Utah farms and I’m clear that sourcing the lavender from their own farms combined with the Young Living’s “Seed To Seal” process is what produces the quality of lavender essential oil that I now enjoy. ...Read More

Peppermint essential oil.

Peppermint essential oil is my second favorite oil. I carry a bottle with me everywhere.  I use it to freshen my breath and to improve my clarity, focus and energy when I’m tired or need a boost at the gym.

Peppermint essential oil has an invigorating and fresh mint aroma. Peppermint (Mentha piperita) is native to Europe and is a hybrid of the wintergreen and spearmint plants. Growing to approximately 2 feet tall, peppermint plants bloom from July through August, sprouting tiny, purple flowers in whorls and terminal spikes. Preparations for extracting peppermint essential oil begin with the leaves and flowering tops of the plant, where menthol— peppermint’s primary active component—is extracted. The term “mint” is from the Greek name Mintha, a mythological nymph transformed into a plant by the goddess Persephone after she learned of her husband Pluto’s love for her. ...Read More

Essential oils as spices and flavorings

cooking-with-young-living-essential-oils

Many essential oils make excellent food flavorings*. They are so concentrated that only 1-2 drops of an essential oil is equivalent to a full bottle (1-2 oz. size) of dried herbs. I use them especially in the winter when fresh herbs aren’t readily available locally here in Colorado. They’ll last longer than herbs as long as you keep them out of direct heat and sunlight with the lid tightly closed.

As a general rule, spice oils impart a far stronger flavor than citrus oils do. For stronger spice oils (such as oregano, nutmeg, cinnamon, marjoram, tarragon, wintergreen/birch, thyme, or basil), you may choose to dip a toothpick into the oils and stir food (after cooking) with toothpick. This controls the amount of essential oil that is put into the food. ...Read More

Tomato sauce with Basil and Thyme essential oils

tomato sauce eo's recipe image

Essential oils can be an easy substitute for fresh herbs, especially in the winter. Because they’re so concentrate I recommend pouring a drop into a separate container first, or simply dipping a toothpick into the oil bottle. You can always add more if needed but you can’t remove it if you’ve added too much.

I also prefer fresh organic tomatoes from our local, Farmer’s Market. They’re easy enough to dice by hand or with your Cuisinart and are much healthier and better tasting than canned. ...Read More
