Buy a Premium Starter Kit in January Receive A Bottle of Thieves Cleaner

*Limit 2 people* Offer ends January 31st, 2016 at 11:59 pm or when limit runs out!

Hey friends!  For the month of January I’m offering a bottle of Thieves cleaner ($22) to 2 people who snag a Premium Starter Kit! Get started and learn more here: THE PREMIUM STARTER KIT

Once I see you show up in my downline, I will get in touch with you using the email you provide in your account or Facebook – and get you all set up!

Thieves Cleaner is literally the greatest Young Living Product of all time.  This is an all purpose cleaner! It’s made with 100% plant‐ and mineral‐based ingredients, including:

– Vegetable‐based surfactants like alkyl polyglucoside that are compliant with Green Seal and EPA Design for Environment (DfE) standards
-Biodegradable cutting agents like sodium methyl 2‐sulfolaurate and disodium 2‐sulfolaurate from renewable sources (both ingredients rated 0 on a 10 point scale on the Environmental Working Group’s health hazard score – which is the best score possible)
– Therapeutic‐grade Thieves and Lemon essential oils (the highest quality and purity essential oils) for natural cleaning

It stretches forever.  My average bottle lasts 3 months because you so heavily dilute it!  So far, I’ve used Thieves Cleaner for:

  • laundry detergent
  • dish detergent
  • window cleaner
  • all-purpose cleaner
  • Tub-Scrub
  • Stain Remover

I live in an apartment that was not cleaned very well when we moved in.  My bathtub had this weird pink film on the floor that would not come up with normal soap and water.  I took 1 capful of thieves cleaner, 5 drops Lemon, 5 drops Thieves, 1/4 cup of baking soda and some water, and went to town on the pink tub.  IT IS NOW BACK TO WHITE!  And of course, I don’t have pictures.  WAHHH.

Seriously – you need this product!  I cannot wait to gift it to you!


Intentional in 2016

One of the millions of things that I love about my journey in essential oils is that it brought me closer to God.  My team, and my community, place HIM at the front and center, and it’s so cool that I’ve found a community of people who pray for success, and acknowledge how important faith is in our business.

We’re doing this 21 Days of Prayer series in one of my oily groups.  It’s so wonderful.  Monique McLean is a wonderful leader in Young Living, and She’s the one leading it.  You should follow her on all the social media for her joy, humor, and faith!

21-Days-Ad-01So, the main gist is to pray and establish that you have to depend on the Lord for your success.  I firmly believe that if God isn’t with me on this journey, then I shouldn’t do it.  Yet, the Lord has blessed me so abundantly, with an oil business I NEVER imagined would exist.  The relationships I have formed on my team not only glorify God, but they also have been the most positive and gratifying group in my life.  In general, this company is so wonderful.  The 21 Days Of Prayer will help me to actively pray for my downline and to continue to give it to Him! ❤️. Follow along at

For me, 2016 is all about being more intentional in my faith.   I want to do devotionals daily, to do a monthly bible study, and to just surround myself with things that only build up my relationship with Christ.   I just want my life to be intentional and to exemplify Christ in all that I do.  This verse is my “challenge” in 2016: 

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”  Hebrews 13:5-6 (NIV) 

Wowza.  I love this verse!

Here are 4 things that I’m utilizing in 2016 to be more intentional in my faith:  


  1. Women in the Word and other online bible studies from SheReadsTruth
  2. Savor Devotional by Shauna Niquist.  It reminds me of sitting down for dinner with an old friend and receiving grace and Jesus.
  3. Jesus Calling Devotional.  This came highly recommended by a friend, and so far, I’m enjoying the way in which it is written.
  4. More Christian Books!  Currently reading Interrupted by Jen Hatmaker.  Jen is hilarious AND this book is wrecking me chapter by chapter.

Here are some of my Intentional Goals for 2016:

  1. Read at least 1 Devotional Daily
  2. Do a monthly bible study – be it SheReadsTruth, Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies, or on my own
  3. Pray more
  4. Examine my relationships and make sure that they only build up my relationship with Christ, don’t make me unglued, and make me a better being.
  5. Pray for my downline, uplines, and crosslines at YL
  6. Continue preparing for marriage with Andrew and to remember Christ as the center.

Whole 30 Round 3

With 68 days to go until wedding date, and 2 days late, I have started my THIRD Whole30.  You know, the eating and life plan that sounds INSANE at first, but then when you do it, you can’t stop talking about how amazing you feel, how much better you look, and just HOW GREAT IT IS! 

 Here are the rules: Whole30 Program
I also created a blog post on my favorite Whole30 things a while back (it’s ugly and I’m sorry): RESOURCES

SO…January 3, Day 1….

I am following the 7 Day Meal Plan from the Whole30 Cookbook for the first 7 days, so today was a day of simple eating, grocery shopping, and meal prep.   I LOVE my Whole30 Cookbook!! 

 I made a protein salad, tomato sauce, and ranch dressing.  I’m actually going to live on the wild side and make my frittata in the morning, because that is just how I roll. 

 For breakfast I had a fried egg, some sauteed summer squash, and pomegranate seeds. It was wonderfully simple. 

 For lunch, I had Nick’s Sticks and an Orange.  Nick’s Sticks are an Iowa local treat. I  love the spicy flavors of the jerky and the simple ingredient list!

For dinner – it was a late, rushed one – I had two Aidell’s Chicken Apple Sausages, and another orange.  I like oranges.  I probably need more greens.  Oh well.  Day 2 is tomorrow.

One thing I’m super excited about?  

  The fact that I didn’t have any Thyme, and was able to use 1 drop of Thyme Essential Oil in my pasta sauce.   I did the same thing and added a drop of Dill to my Ranch Dressing!  Want to learn more about essential oils?  Go here: What the Heck are Essential Oils?

COTM Group 107!

Hey ladies!  This post is for the members of COTM Group 107! Please let me know if you have any questions!

First things first, a good overview of Essential Oils and what they are can be found at my team’s website/class  The password is in the facebook group 🙂  Hover over the picture for information and click to move on to the next “lesson”.  The class focuses on some of the more popular oils which are included in the Premium Starter Kit.


There are 2 ways to purchase oils:

  1. Retail – with retail you can purchase individual oils and do not need to commit to a kit purchase.  This may be the best option for you guys since we are a $25 dollar group!
  2. Wholesale/Member – You must purchase a kit, but you forever get 24% off Young Living products, and access to a wonderful community of oilers.  I also send you the Happy Oils Handbook, an 84 page e-book filled with recipes, testimonials, and tons of information.


The Premium Starter Kit truly is the best deal.  11 oils, a diffuser, samples, product guides and literature, Ningxia Samples, the Happy Oiler Handbook (my gift to you), and a wonderful facebook community (it’s like a party every single day) for $160. 


The Premium Starter Kit has a retail value of $343, but you can get it for $160.


It comes with a high quality diffuser (you can pick your own!).  I diffuse Lavender and Cedarwood nightly to promote restful sleep, and I diffuse Purification when I’m cleaning to zap smells and clean the air!10983164_10205937048483554_8836941244135771639_n

Here’s a brief overview of the oils in the PSK and then I will recommend my favorite top 20 oils in the group’s price range if you would rather purchase as retail!


Thieves – the healthy-keeper. It helps kill airborne yuckies, boosts immunity, makes our digestive systems work their best, and is just the greatest.

Purification – gets rid of bad odors and airborne germs. feels amazing rubbed on the outside of your throat. I love it in our laundry!

Copaiba – supports body’s response to injury/irritation, is a driving oil (enhances other oils!), regulates my natural immune responses, can be soothing, promotes youthful appearance from the inside out

Frankincense – Incredible for my skin and immune system, eases occasional and minor tension/anxiety, promotes feelings of calmness and balance (Was given to baby Jesus as a gift. Rad!) 🎉

RC – contains 3 different kids of eucalyptus which have naturally occurring eucalyptol (really good stuff), inspires and uplifts before working out, creates a comforting environment

DiGize – supports a super healthy digestive system, alleviates nausea and upset/sour stomach, great for occasional irregularity or upset tummies, relief from occasional heartburn

Lemon – naturally highlights hair, maintains energy levels, helps oily skin, calluses, cellulite, detoxing your body. The works!

Stress Away – exactly what it says. We roll it onto our wrists and the back of our necks anytime we want it.

Peppermint – helps me enjoy springtime outdoors, Soothes occasional head discomfort, supports digestive system, promotes proper nasal and respiratory function! I’m obsessed.

Panaway – so many types of relief. Helps with occasional head discomfort, everyday joint and muscle soreness, and that time o’ month cramp suckiness.

Lavender – “the Swiss Army knife of essential oils.” We use it for enjoying the springtime outdoors. great for relaxation, sleepy cream, a calm environment for kids & grownups alike.


Don’t want to purchase a kit?  That’s okay! You can sign up as a retail member and I can add you to the Fresh Slice Facebook group so that you can learn more fun stuff about oils!

Bulletproof Coffee

My life has been changed forever.  Seriously, this Bulletproof Coffee craze is lifechanging and oh so good!

Bulletproof coffee is this new paleo trend, and whole 30 compliant coffee twist that I knew I had to try.  Ghee and Coffee? HELLOO

  I ran out of Ghee about 5 days into my Whole30.  I needed more, and had heard marvelous things about Tin Star Food’s Brown Butter, so I ordered some.  What I didn’t know is that it would take about two weeks to get to me, since they hand craft each batch.  Totally fine with me, but I’ve been on a ghee hiatus and now I’m a little too excited to have this product in my hands.  Ghee is uncultured butter (clarified).  It’s whole30 compliant, and once you go to ghee, you will never want to go back.  Seriously. SO GOOD.  Brown Butter has almost a caramel taste to it.  It’s the best.

  Bulletproof coffee is geared around getting a healthy dose of fat for the morning. After one cup, I am sold.  It’s creamy, coffee, and whole30!


  • 8 oz black coffee
  • 2 T ghee
  • 1 T Coconut Oil

Blend in a blender, food processor, or with an immersion blender.  Place a towel over your blender or you will explode some coffee everywhere.  Just, you know, a tip from a friend.  Serve and enjoy!


 And here’s a quick picture of my naughty pup, who likes to lick food out of the sink.  😐 


Side note: Don’t forget…the Premium Starter Kit is on sale for another 4 days.  If you want to rid your home and body of toxins, oils are a perfect place to start!  Check out my post here for more information:  THE KIT IS ON SALE!
