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!

Post Workout Cream

Hi friends!  It’s been awhile.  So, if you didn’t see my picture of a donut on my instagram feed, I definitely fell off the whole30 bandwagon, and am paying for it.  However, I’m still trying to eat as Whole30 as possible and will most definitely do a whole 30 in July.  I didn’t meal prep or mentally prepare as well as I should have this time around. 😦

To compensate for lack of whole30ing, I’m trying to compensate in the gym.  We’ve been doing auxillary lifts with 15-10-5 reps for 3 sets.  It’s exhausting, and my lower back has been so sore, as have my quads!

I love my Deep Relief roller, but I also love using PanAway and Peppermint post workout.  Today, I wanted to make a cream that I could massage onto my muscles periodically and also moisturize my skin.  I adapted a sore muscle cream that I found on pinterest, to fit my personal preference of oils.  I can already feel it doing it’s magic, and I love it!!


What You Need:

 

  • Glass Jar
  • Valor
  • Copaiba
  • Peppermint
  • Lavender
  • Lemongrass
  • PanAway
  • Coconut Oil
  • Jojoba Oil or Sweet Almond Oil

 

How to Make:

 

  1. Place 1/2 cup of Coconut Oil and 1/4 tsp of Jojoba or Sweet Almond Oil in a blender of food processor.  Pulse or run normally for 30 seconds.
  2. Add 4 drops of each oil and pulse or run normally for another minute or until the mixture is fluffy.
  3. ENJOY, and use as often as you would like!


I’ve really been digging Copaiba lately.  It’s an oil that supports the body’s natural response to injury and irritation.  I’ve been pretty hard on my muscles, so I’ve been happy to use this oil to support my body post workout.  I like to layer it with Peppermint and PanAway as both have cooling effects and work on my sore muscles post workout.  Lavender is supports happy skin and smells beautiful.  Valor is that oil that I just adore.  Not only does it make me feel brave, it also supports physical alignment.  Frankly, I love the scent of Lemongrass, so I just add it to everything!

P.S. That Essential Oils Deal from my last post is still on!  12 Oils for the Price of 11, and a Diffuser.  $150.  This is great, and quite possibly a steal that will never happen again.  Did I mention how much I love my oils?  4 of the 6 oils listed in the recipe come with the Kit above, and Lemongrass is one of the flex surprise oils.  You can do so much with them!  If you are interested, shoot me an email at kelsileeEO@gmail.com.  I will gift you the Happy Oils Handbook, which includes recipes similar to the one listed above.  OR you can sign up HERE!

The Best Essential Oils Deal Yet!

*NOTE:  THis offer is still good and runs while supplies last even though May 31 has passed! I will update this when it closes! 
Oh my goodness, you guys!! Just when I thought Young Living could not be any more awesome, they up the stakes!

TY

Until tomorrow, May 31, with a purchase of the Premium Starter Kit — see my post here: The Premium Starter Kit, you not only get the 10 Everyday Oils and Bonus Citrus Fresh, you also get ANOTHER BONUS OIL!  Young Living is giving away either Orange, Tangerine, or Lemongrass.  Guys.  THAT IS 12 OILS.  Plus a diffuser, samples, and tons of reading stuff for only $150!  That’s more than $400 worth of product!

This is big.  I use the Everyday Oils…everyday. Tangerine and Orange would be great in water or diffused.  Lemongrass smells so great, and can be used in a bug repellant, in pain cream, and diffused.  It’s also in Purification.

Like seriously. I’m still in shock this is what they are offering.  If you do purchase a Premium Starter Kit, you are never under any obligation to buy a monthly quota, or purchase a minimum amount.  You also will forever get a 24% discount by signing up as wholesale versus retail!  Of course, by signing up with me, I’ll hook you up with the Happy Oils Handbook, an 84 page e-magazine, and the Essential Oils Reference Guide App, as well as a crazy awesome Facebook community! 

To get started, you just need to follow these steps:

  1. Follow this link: https://www.youngliving.com/signup/?site=US&sponsorid=2721304&enrollerid=2721304
  2. Check “Wholesale Member” (This is really important!) rather than “Retail Customer”. This signs you up for a 24% discount. Being a wholesale member does not mean you are obligated to be on the business side!  You can do retail too, but you will be paying full price.  It’s also the only way to get the Premium Starter Kits!
  3. This should be done for you already, but make sure that my member number is in both the Sponsor ID & Enroller ID boxes. The number is:  2721304

Whole 30 Day 2

Howdy folks!  Today was absolutely beautiful.  82 degrees, sunny, and beautiful blue skies, it was almost a pity I had to work today rather than be outside.  But then my co-worker’s shared the Dingo Ate My Baby story.  Google it.  There’s a Seinfeld episode on it too.  Seriously though, I love my job. 

Tonight, we worked out (leg day) and then Andrew and I walked our pup.   The Gentle Leader is amazing for dogs who pull, but Kingsley hates it! So he tries to snuggle with us in an attempt to convince us he doesn’t need it.  Haha.
 Also, I just completed Whole30 Day 2!  Today was easier, and I had food prepped.  I’m definitely in the “this is easy phase!”  Days 4 and 5 are going to get me.  Andrew and I have our engagement party with the family on Saturday, and I’m trying on dresses, so hopefully I will stick to Whole30!  I’m thinking I’ll probably order a steak and grilled vegetables or a salad and bring my own dressing.

Today’s Whole 30 Meals included two meals of Breakfast Sausage Browns! 

 Recipe:

Ingredients

  1. 1 Sweet Potato
  2. 1/2 onion (variety of your choice)
  3. Any other veggies you may have
  4. 2 Aidell Chicken Sausage Apple Links
  5. 2 Tsp. Chili Powder
  6. 1/2 tsp cumin
  7. 1/2 tsp paprika (I do a couple Tsps because I love them)
  8. Salt and Pepper to Taste
  9. Dash of Cayenne Pepper
  10. 2 T Coconut Oil

Dice the sweet potatoes and place in a pan with 2 T of coconut oil, and all the spices.  Cover with lid, stirring every few minutes.  Meanwhile, dice your onion, and slice your chicken sausage into a thickness of your choice.  I did about 1/2 inch slices.  Once potatoes begin to crisp (7-10 minutes), add onions, and chicken sausage, stirring frequently.  Once onions begin to be translucent, it is done. Enjoy!!

Makes about 2 servings.  I split them up for breakfast and dinner.

Also, on an oil note, my Essential Rewards shipped, and I qualified for all of the promotions.  (HINT: There may be a giveaway of Grapefruit oil in the upcoming weeks!) I ordered so much oily goodness, and cannot wait to get them in!

As always please comment or shoot me an email at kelsileeEO@gmail.com!

More of my Favorite Whole30 Things

Monday, Monday, Monday, usually, I despise you, but today, I love you.   I am so blessed to have a wonderful job.  My coworkers are like family, and I rarely leave work with a frown on my face.  Seriously.  So blessed.  I got off work, and watched an episode of Breaking Bad with my fiance and his roommate.  We are three episodes from finishing the show, and goodness gracious are we ready to know what’s going to happen.  We got tons of giggles out of our silly pup Kingsley too.  Then we worked out, and my shoulders are SORE!

    Post workout, my stomach was killing me, because I ate some yogurt this morning (not Whole30 compliant) and have been paying for it ever since.  I whipped out some Digize essential oil, rubbed it on my stomach, and luckily, my stomach is finally settling down.

I love my EOs,  since I like to use more healthy, natural products on my body.  If you’re curious about learning more, check out my post: What the Heck are Essential Oils!  I would love to get more people on my team, and more people to dive in and discover the gloriousness that these babies hold.

Yesterday, I wrote about how I prepare for a Whole30 using the Whole30 website, and the resources involved.  Today, I write to you about other amazing resources that I recommend.

Instagram: If you have an Instagram, follow me @youngwholeessential and follow @whole30 and @whole30recipes.  As I go through my whole30 Round 2 I hope to post daily with my meals!  I also recommend @stupideasypaleo and @paleoomg, although not everything they post is Whole30 compliant.  @whole30recipes is great.  The people over at Whole30 pick a guest blogger every week to blog recipes.  I usually follow the blogger of the week, and have slowly built my feed to be a lot of whole30 approved bloggers!

Blogs: Then of course there are numerous blogs that are so helpful!  Some of my favorites include:

  1. Nom Nom Paleo
  2. The Clothes Make the Girl – author of the Well Fed Cookbooks
  3. PaleoOMG
  4. StupidEasyPaleo – Great for those of us who lift, and need a diet that caters to athletic needs.

Cookbooks:  I love books.  I love them so much.  I love cookbooks for their beautiful photography.  Below are the cookbooks I HIGHLY recommend and which have tons of recipes that can get you through a Whole30.  The WellFeds and NomNomPaleo specifically point out compliant meals.  Check out other paleo cookbooks too, as they have compliant meals, you just need to check and double check the ingredients!  So, here’s my list:

  1. WellFed
  2. WellFed2
  3. Whole30 Cookbook
  4. NomNom Paleo
  5. Everyday Paleo
  6. The book I want but don’t have: The Performance Paleo Cookbook 

These are the resources I use to get through a Whole30.  As always, I would love to hear from you!  Email me at kelsileeEO@gmail.com or leave a comment!

Hello Summer!

I am done with finals! Woohoo!! This semester was a crazy one, and I had so much going on these past few weeks. Crazy to think that I have completed 2 years of law school.  One more to go!  It’s finally summer break, and I could not be happier!  I go back to work full time on Monday, but I’m lucky to love my job, and am oh, so, grateful that I don’t have to do homework at night anymore (for three months anyways).  This summer has so much going on: weddings, concerts, family, girl’s weekends . . .

Things I’m Looking Forward to in Summer 2015

  1. I’m going to see Garth Brooks tonight, in Omaha!!
  2. I’m co-hosting an Essential Oils 101 Class on Facebook, with my lovely friend, Alex.  The class is full of fun information and explains how to use oils safely, how to use them in your daily life, and other fun things.  If you would like to attend, leave me a comment or email me at kelsileeEO@gmail.com!

Girlfriend

  1. Girl’s Weekend 2015 at Table Rock Lake.  Seriously looking forward to spending a few days laying out and having girl time with all my ladies!
  2. Wedding Dress shopping.  I cannot wait!  Wedding planning in general will be exciting.
  3. Engagement photo’s with the lovely Carrie Krupke photography!
  4. Catching up on Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, The Walking Dead, Blacklist, and Vampire Diaries.
  5. READING.  If you know me at all, you know how much I love to read.  I know I will be reading the Inheritance Series, all of Jane Austen, What to Eat by Marion Nestle for sure.  But my list is always outrageous.  I *own* over a hundred and fifty books I have yet to read, so I have so many exciting options to choose from.

Jane Austen

All in all, this summer is going to be wonderful!
