πŸ’« An alternative to scented wax melts πŸ’«  Got a warmer as a gift one year, so here's how we're going to use it this season:  Organic coconut oil A few drops of EO (Christmas Spirit + Northern Lights Black Spruce today)  According to one company's website that makes the scented wax cubes, they should never be ingested + contain some synthetic ingredients & paraffin, which is derived from petroleum. Loving this easy (& healthier!) method 🌿 . . . . . . . . . . . #nontoxic #scents #waxwarmer #yleo #cleanitup #christmastime #ochristmastree #roomspray #airfreshener #nlbs #christmasspirit #theditroom #pursuitwithpurpose #cleaneats #plantbased #coconutoilforthewin
A couple drops of Lemongrass on each, and into the dryer they go!

Time and time again... these two never get old! R.C. is our first go-to for breathing. Love to apply a few drops to our chests, backs + feet, and it's so lovely diffused as well!  Raven we use in the same way for even more of a boost all.season.long. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #mommylife #novicksneeded #respiratory #magicofchildhood #littledancer #babies #crunchymom #naturalliving #chemicalfreehome #whole30 #mommylife #toddlers #bigsister #bigbro #plantpowered #howdoesyourgardengrow #backyardchickens #cleaneats #healthykids #momlife #dancemom #backtoschool #expecting @essentialfamilies #raven #thirdbaby #pursuitwithpurpose #rc #ahhhh #theditroom
Back from an IG sabbatical to say these are all 20% off!  5 little oils we canNOT live without: { Valor } the mood-lifter, confidence-booster, and bravery-encourager. As a Momma especially, this has been a game changer and has been my favorite since day 1. { Thieves } your immune system's BFF. We diffuse, we apply and good to go. { Peppermint } energy in a bottle, yes? Without that 3rd cup of coffee or artificial ingredients that you prob don't need in your life anymore { Cedarwood } for people who love to sleep solidly. This doesn't make me fall asleep faster than normal, but we love it bc when we doze off we're sleeping like BABIES. Except babies don't necessarily sleep that well. But you know what I mean. Rested. { Lavender } for everything and anything. Rest, calm, centering, focus, my kid bumped his knee, it's Tuesday, etc.  These are all on sale today! Typically $11-$39, take 20% off, no limits, even on the Valor which is typically restricted due to demand.  Via quick order or if you haven't ordered with YL before, message me!

Being a Mama means being the last one to eat and struggling to clean up kid breakfast #1 before they say "I'm hungry" again two seconds later πŸ™ƒ Anyone else??

We've made it through... almost one full week in Kindergarten! It's actually been fun packing the lunchbox and writing cute little notes to send along with her ❀  We ended up getting a Planet Box based on amazing reviews and because we wanted to stay away from plastic. So far, it's been great - easy to clean, holds the right amount of food, and the rainbow unicorn magnets that came with are adorable!  Always looking for school lunch ideas so do tell - what are your favorite things to send with your kids? . . . . . . . . . . . . . #schooldays #planetbox #bentobox #healthykids #healthylunch #eatyourveggies #kindergarten #mommylife #backtoschool #healthyeats #whole30 #wholefoodie #plantpowered #pursuitwithpurpose #theditroom #offtoschool #weekendready
Best Homemade Play Dough Recipe!  1 cup flour 2 tsp cream of tartar 1/4 cup salt 1cup water 1 tbsp oil  Combine the dry ingredients in a saucepan, then add the last two. Stir over low-medium heat until it's a dough-y consistency. Let cool slightly, then add your fave #yleo & natural food dye (we like Chefmaster Liqua-Gel food color). Last & most important step - let the little hands work it through β˜€οΈ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #mommylife #letthembelittle #thatgardenlife #magicofchildhood #littledancer #babies #crunchymom #naturalliving #chemicalfreehome #whole30 #mommylife #toddlers #bigsister #bigbro #naturekids #backyardchickens #cleaneats #healthykids #momlife #tinkergarten #backtoschool #yl500k #inbeautyandchaos #newbabe #thirdbaby #pursuitwithpurpose #breastfeeding #theditroom
We were away for a few days and so the kids were up super late.  Yesterday one of them couldn't keep any food or water down & we started a regimen of applying oils every hour and diffusing constantly, aimed to keep her hydrated, and I just am so beyond grateful for these tools that we have!  After 12 hours of feeling icky, she got a full night's sleep and this AM is sharpening 17 colored pencils and creating a work of art after eating a good breakfast.  Consistency is so important! Keeping these tools close makes it convenient and just sets you up for a better situation 🌿 . . . . . . . . . . . . #mommylife #immunesupport #thatgardenlife #magicofchildhood #littledancer #babies #crunchymom #naturalliving #chemicalfreehome #whole30 #mommylife #toddlers #bigsister #bigbro #plantpowered #howdoesyourgardengrow #backyardchickens #cleaneats #healthykids #momlife #naturalwellness #backtoschool #expecting #inbeautyandchaos #newbabe #thirdbaby #pursuitwithpurpose #breastfeeding #theditroom
Before we moved & started our own garden & chicken-raising, we were part of a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) & it was lovely!  You get locally grown food, usually it's organic, and you're paying directly to the farmer. For us that meant amazing quality, no middleman, and great customer service if needed.  Most have veggies, fruit, eggs, flowers, meat, bread, etc. and though you pay up front, it was more cost- effective for us in the long run than getting all that from the grocery store!

Hi, can we talk about pH balance in the body real quick?  The ideal environment is more alkaline, while an acidic one sets us up for dis-ease & allows unfriendly bacteria, yeast and fungi to grow.  Feel free to Google this acidic vs. alkaline balance as #1 it's pretty interesting and #2 makes so much sense.  How do we get to a more alkaline state? >check our diets >avoid antibiotic overuse >lower stress >essential oils >boost friendly bacteria with an effective probiotic like Life 9 >check out Alkalime (pictured) - I just got this for the first time this week & am noticing a difference already  Getting your pH right will also apparently help your essential oils be that much more effective πŸ‘Š  Would love to hear your thoughts on this! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #mommylife #healthandwellness #thatgardenlife #bewell #alkaline #knowbetterdobetter #crunchymom #naturalliving #chemicalfreehome #whole30 #mommylife #toddlers #alkalime #bigbro #plantpowered #howdoesyourgardengrow #backyardchickens #cleaneats #healthykids #momlife #dancemom #backtoschool #phbalance #inbeautyandchaos #newbabe #thirdbaby #pursuitwithpurpose #breastfeeding #theditroom
Got the MightyPro pre&probiotics...not mad about it 😍 "Supports digestive and immune health, meaning fewer missed days from school or daycare...[a healthy gut has] lasting consequences for children's well-being and overall health" so this momma's not mad about it either #saycheese . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #mommylife #kidprobiotics #thatgardenlife #magicofchildhood #littledancer #babies #crunchymom #naturalliving #chemicalfreehome #whole30 #mommylife #toddlers #bigsister #bigbro #plantpowered #howdoesyourgardengrow #backyardchickens #cleaneats #healthykids #momlife #dancemom #backtoschool #expecting #inbeautyandchaos #newbabe #thirdbaby #pursuitwithpurpose #breastfeeding #theditroom

VALOR: great spirit; courage; bravery, especially in the face of danger  3.5ish years ago when I was starting on Essential Rewards, this was one of the first oils I purchased outside the starter kit, and it's been a MUST HAVE ever since.  Back then it was roughly $12 and then it went out of stock. For TWO years! Now that it's back, slightly reformulated & still in such high demand, quantities are limited to 2 bottles per month. And this month it's available as part of the promos for  f r e e!  What's in it?  Caprylic/capric triglyceride, Picea mariana † (Black spruce) leaf oil, Cinnamomum camphora † (Camphor) wood oil, Tanacetum annuum † (Blue tansy) flower oil, Boswellia carterii † (Frankincense) oil, Pelargonium graveolens † (Geranium) flower oil 🏡  Fave uses: Apply or diffuse to get your day started Apply or diffuse if you have to talk to people on the phone (anyone else?? 😜) Let the kids smell before school, a big event, or add to a diffuser bracelet  What are your best ways to use this oil blend?? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . #mommylife #valor #thatgardenlife #magicofchildhood #courage #crunchymom #naturalliving #chemicalfreehome #yleo #toddlers #bigsister #bigbro #plantpowered #diffuserbracelet #backyardchickens #cleaneats #healthykids #momlife #backtoschool #expecting #inbeautyandchaos #newbabe #thirdbaby #pursuitwithpurpose #breastfeeding #theditroom
