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!

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?

Let me know if you have questions and be sure to follow my adventures over at @youngwholeessential on Instagram! 

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!

Recipe:

  • 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!

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!

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!

Whole 30 Round 2 Starts Tomorrow

Happy Memorial Day! Remember, we are the home of the free, because of the brave.  All fallen soldiers have my utmost respect and gratitude. 

Today was a relaxing Monday, spent with my fiancée, who just returned from the Indianapolis 500. My stomach has been so angry, so today, I heavily relied on Digize.  That oil makes my tummy so happy, and as someone with all sorts of tummy issues, this is greatly appreciated. It made my day so much more bearable, but made me recognize how badly I needed to get back on clean eating.   Andrew had practice and during that, I got my affairs in order for Whole 30! 

Here is my grocery store haul:

  
I made a Zesty Ginger Dressing from Wel Fed 2 (amaze balls).  It tastes just like the one I adore at sushi restaurants, and man, where has this been all my life! 

  
 Then I made Paleo Mayo from Well Fed 1/2.  

These are the sauces that will keep my food yummy all week.  Paleo Mayo is so versatile and so, so yummy.  

I also stir fried some sweet potatoes for breakfast tomorrow.

    I plan on also frying some eggs and having two Aidell’s Chicken Apple Sausage.  For lunch I will have the above salad, with hard boiled eggs.  For Dinner, I may try to make Melissa’s Chicken Hash from the Whole 30 cookbook!

I’m really excited to do a whole30 with my new workout regimen!  I’m ready to be a strong, beautiful, bride! Today’s workout was all shoulders and we finished with push-ups.  By the end, I was shaking so badly, and so sore!  So, naturally, Deep Relief was a necessity! That oil is all sorts of minty goodness and I love that it rolls on cold and gets warm. It works serious magic and gets so deep! Love my essential oil journey! Stay tuned for more Whole30 and oil adventures!
