Why would I invest in an essential oil kit?

Essential oils are growing in popularity and since February 2013 I’ve felt the wellness benefits that Young Living products have given me, my family, my cats and my clients. They have become an important tool in my business for those seeking balance and wellness.

But why would you want to invest in an essential oil starter kit? Here are the most common reasons that I hear:

  • There’s something physical or emotional that’s bothering you.
  • You’ve tried other products and nothing has worked.
  • You’ve tried other options and did not like the side effects.
  • You would rather try something natural to balance your body.
  • You would rather take steps to balance your body than put a proverbial bandage on it.

Why is Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit so popular?

It’s a popular kit because the variety of 12 essential oils can help with a wide range of things. It’s over a $400 kit that is priced at $165 so that it’s more affordable for you when taking a leap of faith. Here’s what you get and how I use it:

  • Desert Mist diffuser that works for 5-10 hours (with 3 intermittent settings) and 11 different light settings. It’s beautiful and a real work horse to naturally scent your home, clean the air, eliminate odors naturally, help with focus (during work or school work), and help with sleep.
  • Twelve powerful essential oils to help you physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
    • Citrus Fresh Vitality = labeled for dietary use, one drop is great in water to naturally cleanse your body.
    • DiGize Vitality = take this internally for anything digestive related before or after that meal that bothers you.
    • Lemon Vitality = ditch the lemon slices and put 1 drop of this in water keep your body balanced, immune system strong, and diffuse for mental focus.
    • Peppermint Vitality = take this internally for digestive support, use it while baking (think Peppermint frosting!), and in the diffuser it helps with concentration.
    • Thieves Vitality = take this internally for immune support, I drink this in water while on travel or when I’m around sick people, and diffuse it when people come to my home.
    • Frankincense = when you need to sleep or calm down, diffuse or place 1 drop topically on your forehead, it’s also amazing for youthful looking skin.
    • Lavender = excellent in the diffuser, a few drops on wet laundry in the dryer, or put 1 drop in a new mascara wand for strong and long lashes.
    • PanAway = this your Peppermint & Wintergreen muscle and joint rub when you’ve over exerted and you’re feeling it.
    • Peace & Calming = diffuse this when kids/pets need to calm down or when you need a relaxing break from everything bogging down your mind.
    • Raven = this is a blend with Eucalyptus that your lungs will love when rubbed on the chest or diffused.
    • Stress Away = a blend with Lime and Vanilla that is perfect to diffuse after work, especially if you’ve spent the day with snarky people or in gridlock traffic.
    • Valor = when you need courage and confidence, let this give you strength. It is great for kids during school, for pets who are reactive to others, and when you have goals to start climbing.
  • Ningxia Red packets = this is our high antioxidant wellness drink that I have been on since 2014. It’s natural energy (goodbye caffeine), boosts my brain and even my cats drink it!
  • Thieves Household Hand Purifier = a nontoxic way to keep your hands clean while on the go.
  • Thieves Spray = A nontoxic way to spray surfaces for a natural clean and amazing scent you’ll love.
  • Plus a packet of small sample bottles and a rollerball top!

The price of this kit is amazing. But the value of this kit is even better in what it will do for your health.  

To give you the best launch into oils, I’ll arm you with educational materials that will empower you to learn how to use the oils. I will also meet with you (in-person or via video) to help you identify how to use these oils in the best way for you, your family, or even if you have pets! Because that’s one difference between Young Living and oils in the stores … you get a person and you get me!

The only way you will know if they work is if you get started. Are you ready? Then click this link and pick your Premium Starter Kit (there are 4 diffusers to choose from).

Everyone loves this kit and I know you will too. Once you start using the oils and have your first “Wow … these really work” moment, you’ll know why it’s a fast growing field in the wellness industry and why Young Living has been leading this industry for 25 years.

And because not all essential oils are the same, Young Living’s Seed to Seal standards are unmatched by any other company. This is why our oils are safe with pets, babies and we can ingest them.

Everyone has something physical, emotional, mental or spiritual troubling them. Even pets are struggling. This kit can and will change your life for the better and those that you love … but you have to get it, you have to use it, and I will help you along the way.

Let’s do this!

Essential Oils for Summer

Summer is the time when our minds are on playtime, vacation time, and relaxation time rather than work or school. It’s a time of travel, kids asking are we there yet, and being so wound up with excitement that sleep can be challenging. You’re eating cotton candy and elephant ears at festivals and questioning that decision afterward. It’s a time of rollercoasters, long car rides and plane rides that our stomach may not enjoy. You’re loving the sun and sometimes too much of it. And essential oils can be part of Summer survival kit!

Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit is your Summer survival kit!

It comes with 12 essential oils and a diffuser which every home should honestly have. It also comes with a Thieves Hand Purifier (for bathroom rest stops), a Thieves Spray (for restaurant tables), and samples of Ningxia Red (my daily energy drink).

What’s even better? I will send you two essential oil books to jumpstart your oily journey, and offer you a wellness assessment so that you get the most out of your experience with Young Living. And when you get the starter kit, you also get a wholesale account with Young Living so that all of your orders are at a 24% discounted rate.

So if you LOVE LOVE LOVE Summer and want to enjoy all that you can, this kit is for you. Click here to get started!

Seriously … I use these oils pretty much every day and they will help you have the best summer!

 

Not all essential oils are made the same

I recently finished “Spring Expo Season” where I had booths at women’s expos and pet expos to share information about safe and effective essential oils. I met a lot of great people and pets. And I realized that not all essential oils are made the same.

I found myself saying the same thing over and over and over again because essential oils are suddenly the hot new commodity. #theresanoilforthat But it also showed me that there’s a lot of confusion about essential oils (you can’t believe everything you read online), stores will not teach you how the use the oils, and it’s really important that you align yourself with an essential oil educator that you trust. #pickme

Here’s the thing … essential oils may be a hot topic, but they are not new, they have been around for 5,000+ years. But now they are EVERYWHERE! Seriously …. I now see essential oils at the gas stations. #saynotogasstationoils They are in stores that sell everything from food to gerbils and gun licenses, to the discount store chains, and everywhere online. #justsayno

OILS OILS OILS EVERYWHERE!

But as with everything, there are quality essential oils and inferior essential oils. There are essential oils that can improve your wellness physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually and there are oils that simply scent a room. There are essential oils that are safe around pets and those that are not. There are essential oils that are safe for babies and children, and those that are not.

I don’t know about you, but if I’m spending money on essential oils, I want to feel better physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually and I want them to be safe for me and my cats. I want them to actually DO something to help me feel better. #yougetwhatyoupayfor

So what’s a curious essential oiler to do when you’re surrounded by those little bottles but you don’t know which ones are good for you? #askallie

Here’s some of the most popular questions and my answers:

Question: Can I ingest this essential oil (especially if it’s a product that you can also eat, like lemon or peppermint)?

Answer: If the label says “do not ingest”, then the label is telling you that there is something else in the bottle other than the oil. If the label says yes, then you have a quality essential oil that can be safely used in a variety of ways and with your entire family. But be aware that the FDA does not allow an essential oil to be labeled both topical and for ingestion on the same bottle. Different labels are required for each. This is why Young Living has the Vitality line of oils (for ingesting) and all of those same oils are labeled differently for topical use. Same oil, different label. This is why it’s important to know the company.

Question: Can I topically apply the essential oil?

Answer: If the label says no, then once again the label is telling you that there is something else in the bottle. This is likely just a fragrance oil and fragrance oils tend to contain synthetic oils, too.

Question: Is it safe for me to smell the oil (directly from the bottle or through diffusing)?

Answer: Whatever you smell, topically apply or ingest goes into your bloodstream. So if you cannot ingest it or topically apply it, you should think twice about smelling it.

Question: Is it safe to use with my pets?

Answer: The #1 answer to this question is to go to the company’s website, type pet or animal in the search bar, and if the company does not promote their oils for pets, then you should not use them in that way. Here is a blog that I wrote that outlines a lot of information specifically on this hot social media topic.

Question: Is it safe to use on babies or pregnant women?

Answer: Labeling laws require cautions on products that are used in homes that have children or pregnant/nursing women.  So again, go to the company website and if the company promotes their oils to be used with babies, children, and pregnant/nursing women, then you have a quality essential oil.

Question: What do you really know about the company?

Answer: When the essential oil company has their own  process from having their own farms, to the seed of the plant, to growing without the use of pesticides/herbicides, to harvesting at the proper time for that plant, to distilling their own oils using only low pressure and water (no solvents or chemicals) or cold pressing citrus without solvents or chemicals, then you can safely use those essential oils with your family. And does the company specialize in essential oils?

There’s a few quality essential oil companies on the market, but most essential oils have been compromised to sell cheaply. The company that can answer YES to all of these questions is Young Living (especially when it comes to pets).

It’s why I ditched dozens or oils from other brands and moved to Young Living in 2013. I did that because I have cats, I work with animals and shelter pets, and my lawyer brain wants to keep me legally safe in what I do by making sure that the company backs how I use the products. And it’s why I teach about Young Living because, now more than ever, people want quality and they want answers.

Tools for Crisis, Trauma and Stress

A tree down in my yard after Hurricane Irene in August 2011.

I am writing this as Hurricane Florence is decimating the Carolina coastline and creating life threatening circumstances for too many people and animals. No matter where you live, each area has its share of natural disasters …. from hurricanes, flooding, wildfires, earthquakes, and more.

Often we have warning and can prepare for these natural disasters, but sometimes we cannot. A weather disaster can shake us to the core of our survival instincts because it often involves having to flee our home and can even result in the physical and emotional loss of our homes.

Once our survival instincts kick into high gear, it can be weeks, months and sometimes a lifetime before our physical and emotional body can get back to normal. When we go into survival mode, our adrenals begin to produce excess cortisol and it can quickly drain our endocrine system and impact our entire body.

In 2003, I was in a situation where I had very little choice but to move away from my home and family for employment reason. It was traumatic and it pretty much destroyed my adrenals (which are still working to fully rejuvenate). And when I lived in Alexandria, VA, there were several times when remnants of hurricanes and tropical storms required me to get prepared to evacuate. It was all very stressful. Crisis, trauma and stress will absolutely take a toll on the body.

For some people, knowing that others (especially helpless animals) are suffering during a weather event can bring on vicarious trauma and empathetic stress as if you are too experiencing the event. I know … I’ve been there in my animal protection legal work and when I volunteered in Jackson, Mississippi to help animals after Hurricane Katrina. I returned home a complete stressed-out and traumatized mess. And watching 24/7 news coverage also does not help (which is why I recommend heavy doses of The Hallmark Channel and Harry Potter movies during stressful times).

So what can you do when you are in the middle of a crisis, traumatic or stressful situation, whether it’s weather-related or not? These are a few simple tools that I have used for myself and my kitties to keep us calm and well.

  • For a weather-related event, be prepared by having a Grab-N-Go bag ready for every member of the family, including pets. Being prepared will give you great peace of mind and help you move quickly to get everyone to safety with less stress.
  • If you are attuned to an energy healing modality, give yourself, your children and/or your pets healing energy frequently. If you are not, simply rub your hands together and place them on your heart, on your children’s back and on your pets. Once you can calm your heart, you will be able to share that with others.
  • Tapping (Emotional Freedom Technique) is a great way to start moving the crisis energy out of your system. Here is a great video on relief for people in crisis from Brad Yates (my EFT guru). Tap frequently until you feel relief.
  • If you are calm, those around you will be calm. The most effective and fast-acting calming tool that I use are my Young Living essential oils. My favorites are Lavender, Stress Away, Peace & Calming, Valor, and Sacred Mountain. Diffuse these therapeutic-grade essential oils so that everyone can benefit, including pets. And topically apply for added benefit. And if you are fleeing a disaster zone by car, having a car diffuser with calming essential oils may help to cut the energy of the crisis.

Preparing is the key for when a weather-related disaster occurs; Self-care is the key to a speedy recovery.

Healing tools for Eclipse Seasons: Change and Transformation

I love to follow astrology because it often explains why things are happening. You don’t have to be an expert master astrologer to know and feel the intense energies that have been on us for the past year or so.

Well, we’re in for another intense time starting July 12, 2018 (starting at 9:48pm/eastern) with a new moon and partial solar eclipse. Then we have a full moon and lunar eclipse on July 27, 2018 (starting at 1:14pm/eastern and the eclipse will be the longest this century) followed by a new moon and partial solar eclipse on August 11, 2018 (starting at 4:02am/eastern). None of these eclipses can be seen from North America, but many people will certainly feel them.

So what does this all mean? You can learn more about sun, moon and eclipse energies and how they impact you in this blog post, but here’s some specifics about this eclipse season so that you are prepared.

New Moon with Partial Solar Eclipse – This eclipse may bring up a lot of unresolved emotions, changes in the family unit, and pushing us out of our comfort zones while helping us to transform and move out of old patterns. This eclipse is all about highlighting our subconscious patterns that have been holding us back and this will all come to the surface. Oh goodie (she says sarcastically)! Ultimately this will help us to understand ourselves better, to release stuck patterns and will benefit us long term. It’s really important to go with the flow, let this happen, and don’t fight it. You may feel hugely uncomfortable during this time but imagine it like the birthing process …. It’s painful but ultimately beautiful on the other side.

Full Moon with Lunar Eclipse – This eclipse will have the strongest impact because it’s in Leo (which is my sun sign, oh more fun!). It will trigger a lot of turbulent energy because this eclipse is about letting go of what no longer serves us (even if it’s comfortable). It may bring up repressed energy and feelings (like anger). This is an intense frustrated energy where you will feel like you need to jump into something and may act impulsively. It’s a time where you may experience a lot of change and upheaval, and it’s also a time to surrender for the best change. So think about anything that you feel needs to be changed and if you’ve been thinking about this change for a while then it’s a good time to take action. If it’s something new, then hold off for now. And also be more forgiving to people who say and do things that are hurtful and unkind because they may not know how to handle this energy.

New Moon with Partial Solar Eclipse – This eclipse will highlight Mercury Retrograde (from July 26 – August 19, 2018). This is a chance for new beginnings in the sign of Leo (which is the energy of leading and moving forward even in the face of obstacles). From the powerful eclipse season last summer, we’ve gone thru a lot of changes and this is the last chance for new beginnings. It’s a time to rethink and redo where we are going and a time to focus on changes that need to happen. It’s a time to rethink and readjust, and letting go of responsibilities to other people. It’s a time where we need to surrender and release control, deal with power struggles, and just let go. Take in what’s going on, loosen up, and allow something better to come in. In the Law of Attraction, this is called receiving.

Wow, that all sounds fairly ominous. But we’ve been through powerful energies like this and survived. So what can you do to be and feel your best during this turbulent time?

Here are 5 tips to help keep you grounded and flowing during this season:

(1) Lots of self care, such as spending time with the elements you feel most drawn to (water, mountains, sun, etc.). Make a point everyday during this month-long eclipse season to practice self care.

(2) Lots of meditation and quiet time to keep your mind from going to the place of fear.

(3) Get moving with yoga, exercise, walking so that the energies don’t build up in you.

(4) Use true therapeutic-grade essential oils (not fragrance oils) to help with the transformation part of these eclipses because when you smell a real essential oil it goes into the limbic region and emotional area of the brain. My recommendations for this time are:

  • Surrender blend = the energy of this blend feels like a pressure valve releasing controlling and overbearing behavior (because we cannot control what happens around us, only our response). It helps to release resistance to change, learn to embrace what cannot be controlled and go with the flow. This is the oil where you stop paddling upstream and, instead, drop your oars and let the river turn your boat around to head with ease in a better direction.
  • Acceptance blend = the energy of this blend is soothing when you need to stop pushing against and resisting what is happening in your life. It helps you to accept when you know that you need a new direction, when you need to embrace change, but change feels scary.
  • Awaken blend = the energy of this blend can open you to your potential, help you with meditation, visualization and manifesting so that you can make the personal changes to manifest your dreams.
  • Believe blend = the energy of this blend shifts you to believing what right now you cannot believe. It works on despair and inadequacy to help you feel empowered even when the future is unknown or uncertain.
  • Into the Future blend = the energy of this blend is about moving forward and leaving the past in the past, helping you to visualize a new future, to release fear and take leaps of faith. It’s a great oil to use when you know your potential but you’re afraid to go for it.

(5) If you’re a crystal geek like me, the crystals I will be piling on top of me during meditation time and sleep time will be:

  • Clevelandite = If you want to read an article I wrote just on this crystal, you can find it at healingcrystals.com. In a nutshell, this a crystal of profound life change by helping you to focus on exactly what change you need and showing you what you have in your life to help you succeed.
  • Danburite = excellent for deep change, leaving the past behind, bringing patience and peace of mind during transformation.
  • Elestial Quartz = a stone of change and transformation to set you on your life path.
  • Labordorite = a stone of transformation that is highly protective, helps to banish fears and insecurities during change.
  • Larimar = a deeply nurturing crystal that helps to calm the mind and body into a meditative state, helps you to go with the flow, brings equilibrium during change and helps to guide the soul on its true path.

Eclipses are all about mindset. So either you can worry, fret and fight it every step of the way and feel miserable. Or you can relax, accept and let the energies move you into a place that you likely could not dream of happening.

What other tools do you like to use during intense energies? Please post a comment so that we can all share and learn!

Lucy … Signs from our cat angels

Companion Animals provide unconditional love and support … it’s one of the most true forms of love we can experience.

If you love animals, you have likely suffered the loss of one or more. When we lose a companion animal, we can grieve as much (if not more) than when we lose a person.

I have blogged about the passing of my kitties Sammy and Oscar (in 2012) and Jacob (in 2017).  For me, it’s part of the healing process and I always find something heart-opening during the grieving process because pets really do teach us a lot.

With Sammy, I wrote about what pets teach us because if you listen to your pet, you will learn amazing things.

With Oscar, I wrote about some interesting number similarities between Oscar and Sammy’s passings and being tuned in to those signs.

With Jacob, I wrote about different energy methods to help deal with the sudden loss of a loved one and processing grief.

My sweet Lucy passed away on May 3rd at the age of 19 years and 9 months. I had her in my life for 19 years and 2 months which is an incredible long life we had together. My heart is broken into countless little pieces because she was truly my best friend and was with me through some very terrible times and very happy times. While people have let me down, Lucy never did. She was a very vocal Bombay (black Siamese) and could actually verbalize about 20 words including Uh oh or Oh no (when she saw her brother Rudy), I don’t know (when I asked her a question and she wanted me to figure it out) and should could even say my name. Seriously!!!!

Lucy was MY cat … she didn’t need anyone else and would have been content as an only cat (although she had 4 brothers in her lifetime). One of my fondest memories of Lucy was taking Lucy on a Cat-cation in August 2016 to celebrate her 18th birthday and my birthday. We went to a friend’s home on the shore of Lake Huron in Cheboygan, Michigan. Although Lucy was not fond of the 3+ hour car ride, she loved spending time on the beach (the world’s largest litter box for her) and it being just the two of us for a few days.

Lucy was also truly the spokes cat for Manifested Harmony because she let me test out all of the wonderful healing modalities I have learned over the years with her. She taught me how to properly offer Energy Healing and crystals to cats (click on the links to see videos of Lucy demonstrating). Cats are not little people so there is a method of offering energy healing to our pets and Lucy taught me that.

And then Lucy helped me understand that safe, quality, pet-friendly essential oils can provide an amazing physical and emotional benefits. Many people are concerned about using essential oils with cats because of a cat’s difficulty in eliminating essential oils through the liver. Read this blog if you’re still concerned. For 5 years, Lucy was surrounded by Young Living essential oils. I diffused essential oils everyday and she loved them. And for 4 years she drank an essential oil-infused drink called Ningxia Red in her food. Six days before she passed her lab work showed that her liver was in good condition for a 19+ year old cat … it was her kidneys that had been declining over the past 3 years that finally took her.

With Lucy, she was very clear in her messages to me when she was alive. When she did not want me to work past 8pm, she would sit on my laptop to prevent me from typing. When I did too many video classes in a row, she would sit in my lap to keep me balanced and to let me know when it was time to stop. When it was time to put down a book, she sat on me and stared at me. She was a great teacher.

Since her passing, I have received some beautiful signs from Lucy. Lucy is guiding me to write about the signs that you may receive from your pets when they are ready to pass and after they have passed. These are the signs that Lucy gave to me before she passed:

  • Lucy had no interest in food for 7 days and did not eat at all for 3 days. When your pet stops eating, they are letting you know that they are ready … they are just waiting for you to be ready and to say it’s okay for them to pass.
  • Lucy was walking around the house (even the morning before passing) as if to take in everything and say goodbye.
  • When I looked in her eyes, I could tell that she was starting to leave. The life, spark and energy that had always been in her eyes was dwindling and mostly gone.
  • Many pets like to go into hiding when they are ready to pass. Lucy walked downstairs in the middle of her last night and I found her sitting on a dining room chair cloaked by the table cloth.
  • And because our pets cannot verbalize that they are ready to go, we need to put down the busyness in our life and really focus on them because the signs will be obvious. Then you will feel at peace when it’s time to let them go.

In the 2 hours after Lucy passed, these are the signs that she sent to me:

  • I felt her kiss my nose. Every day should would give me nose smears, which is how she picked me when I found her at the animal control shelter in 1999 in a room full of black cats.
  • When I was driving her to the crematorium, these songs came on the radio: You’ll never find another love like mine (Lou Rawls) and Hey Nineteen (Steeley Dan). I laughed when Hey Nineteen played because Lucy was 19 at her passing. Lucy was anything but subtle.
  • I have table chimes on my dining room buffet table and all of my angel kitties will move the chimes whenever I talk to them. Seriously, people who have been at my house have seen it!!! As soon as I walked into my house after leaving her at the crematorium, the chimes belled.

And in the days since then, I have seen a lot of feathers …. every where (that’s a sign from the angels)! Many friends who are gifted communicators have connected with Lucy and shared information with me that gives me comfort that she is with loved ones, in a good place, and happy. I have also seen her out of the corner of my eye and have heard her meow. Am I losing my mind, no. If we take the time to connect, we can sense those who have passed. And that sensing can give great comfort during grief.

When we lose a loved one (whether human or pet), it can suck the energy out of us. Rudy (her cat brother) and I are definitely not the high energy beings that we were before Lucy passed. But with a lot of support from family and friends, and using a daily protocol from the Feelings Kit, we are regaining our energy and getting back to our new normal. And I’m learning that it’s good to be happy, even though I miss Lucy greatly, because one thing that she continuously taught me was to be happy … no matter what is going on.

So when you lose a pet, be sure to give yourself the time and space to properly grieve and to notice the signs that your pet is not far … they are just in different form. And take comfort in the time that you had with your pet, although we know it is always too little.

Essential Oils in the Workplace … it’s doable!

So how is Monday morning treating you these days? Do you start feeling anxious and stressed on Sunday? Do you wake up tired and unmotivated Monday morning? If you answered yes, how you are spending your time during the week could be the reason. Don’t worry … there are solutions available!

About 70% of workers are disengaged in the workplace which means that they are not reaching their full potential and could be at risk of losing their job, which no one wants (2010-12 Gallup Poll, State of the American Workplace). The study found that those who are engaged at work are the lifeblood of a company, they are involved, passionate, committed, they show up (physically, emotionally and mentally), they are positive, helpful, and go beyond the call of duty. They are also the least likely to take a sick day, a mental health day, or complain. And they are the healthiest of all employees, too. We all want to work with those sort of people, right?

So are YOU that sort of person? Or is your workplace making you feel unhealthy? Here’s how to find out!

  • Does your workplace drain your energy?
  • Does the physical environment leave you feeling physically exhausted by the end of the day?
  • Do the people around you drain your emotional energy as soon as the day begins?
  • Do you have mentally intense work and suffer from brain fog that depletes your energy?
  • Do you wake up, scramble to get to work, go home exhausted, and stay busy until you collapse into bed?
  • Do you dread Monday, start to slump on Wednesday, then Thank God It’s Friday, only to spend the weekend busy running errands and doing stuff for the kids, only to get back to Monday exhausted just to do it all over again?
  • Do you feel like your body and emotions are on a rollercoaster because you hype up during the day with caffeine and energy drinks, and then take pills or drink alcohol to make you sleep?

If you answered YES to any of those, you are likely experience workplace fatigue. It’s a reality for far too many people. We’re working so that we can have a life, but we have no life because we are working and don’t feel well. EEEEK!!! There has to be a better way.

So what can you do that will keep you energized and focused during the day, keep your emotions boosted and happy, keep you calm when there are deadlines and stress, and help you have a natural good night’s sleep?

Workplace Wellness with therapeutic-grade essential oils (not fragrance oils) is an area that I have been focusing on in recent years. I have tested these recommendations on myself when I was working outside of Washington D.C. in an office full of attorneys, constantly traveling, and super stressed out. I’ve tested these on many others in different industries from veterinary clinics, to animal shelters, to insurance companies, to large offices and small offices.

Through my work in the energy therapy world, I have researched the energetic aspects of essential oils (it’s really fascinating). So here is a listing of my favorite Young Living essential oils and if you want to know the reason how and why these recommendations work, click here to access a short online class:

  • Oils for Focus, Concentration and Memory = Lemon or Peppermint
  • Oils for Stress and Anger = Lavender, Orange, Bergamot or Stress Away
  • Oils for Chaos and Crisis = Cedarwood, Cypress, Frankincense, Palmarosa, or Peace & Calming
  • Oils for Positive Mood and Happiness = Geranium, Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Orange or Joy
  • Oils to Relax and have Good Sleep = Frankincense, Cedarwood, Idaho Balsam Fir, or Idaho Blue Spruce

But is this really doable in an office? What if you get objections to using essential oils in your work space? Here are some recommendations:

  • If a co-worker complains of allergies around scents, chances are they are reactive to toxic smells but will not react to a therapeutic-grade essential oil. Dr. David Stewart states, “There are a couple of ways one can be sensitive to essential oils, but an allergic reaction is not one of them. Allergies are erroneous immune responses to proteins, peptides, and amino acids – all nitrogen compounds, none of which are found in essential oils.” Now if you are using an adulterated essential oil (containing undisclosed ingredients or toxic growing and distillation processes), you can have a reaction because of the adulteration. Most people are reacting to toxic scent – like lavender scented products. “Allergic sensitivities are due to the body developing antibodies in response to certain nitrogenous molecules. No one has ever found antibodies in humans from essential oils. So if one has a reaction to an essential oil, it is something else. Not an allergy.” (Sensitivities to Essential Oils by Dr. David Stewart) To be respectful yet not deprive yourself of the benefits, try wearing a diffuser necklace where you can add a couple of drops of oils or get a USB diffuser that plugs into your computer.
  • Try wearing ONE drop of essential oil topically which will infuse every cell in your body with the benefits. One drop is usually very subtle to others but will be very powerful for you. Pick a softer smelling essential oil like Geranium or Bergamot which are very uplifting and happy oils!
  • Take a hand-held diffuser to work. You can pull it out and mist the essential oils directly on your face when you need a boost! I do this on airplanes and it’s never disrupted the person sitting next to me.
  • If you have your own office with a door, bring in a diffuser and close your door when you are diffusing. I loved doing this and would find most of my staff coming in to my office because they just wanted to inhale the oils! 🙂  I would run the diffuser with Lemon essential oil when I needed to be laser focused on writing or reading.
  • If none of those options work, drink your oils! There is an ENTIRE line essential oils from Young Living that are approved for dietary use! So instead of diffusing Lemon, drink your Lemon Vitality oil! Click here to check out the entire Vitality line of oils! But please do not drink an essential oil unless it’s labeled for that use.
  • Another option is to have a diffuser for your car so that you can enjoy the benefits of essentials oils BEFORE going to work and when you are driving home! If you live in a populated area, the stress of gridlock traffic can be far worse than anything in the office. Diffuse like a wild and free spirit in your car!!! This is my favorite car diffuser.

To learn more on this topic, click here to access my online class. Most of us spend half of our waking hours in the workplace and there ZERO reason to dread it when you can support yourself with Young Living essential oils. I encourage you to give one of these recommendations a try and I know that you will feel better. Because when you feel well in the workplace, that wellness will spill over in to the rest of your life!

P.S. If you are really struggling with your work, for whatever reason, and you know it’s time to find enjoyable work that you’re passionate about, where you get to help people (and pets) every day, that you can do from home or from any location (hello beach work!!!), so that you can raise or homeschool your children, avoid lost hours during a stressful commute, work the hours that you want, work with the people of your choosing … then I invite you to watch this online class. I changed my physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health when I took a leap of faith and moved ALL of my work to home-based businesses, including Young Living. What I love about Young Living is that it completely transferred 100% when I moved from Virginia to Michigan in March 2015 (none of my other work did), it has grown consistently month after month, I get the pleasure of educating people and showing them how to buy essential oil wellness products (I don’t sell or have to keep an inventory), I help them find what works for them, and I can help pets in ways that other methods have failed. It’s been transformative and FREEING I would love to have you in my team so that we can do this TOGETHER! So check out my class and contact me with questions!

Essential Oils for Cats … safe practices!

I’m going to go out on a limb and talk about a controversial hot topic that has gone viral on social media in the past month … and it does not seem to be slowing down.

Essential Oils for Cats and Pets.

It all started last month when a friend notified me about a Facebook post from a lady who has an 18-year-old cat who was very sick because she had been diffusing essential oils purchased on Amazon since Christmas. I created this video below to help calm the fear and clarify the confusion. I’m not sure how her cat is doing but I hope he will be okay.

I received over 100 messages from concerned friends, fellow oilers and strangers about that post so it really touched a nerve with people. For those of us with fur family member, of course we want them to be safe.

Here’s the video I did on my Facebook page.

Then I’ve seen this graphic and loads of stories circulating on social media almost every day for the past month. When it rains it pours, right? So I want to give you some clarity and relief from concern about what essential oils are safe to use with cats (and any pets).

I am NOT a veterinarian, I’m a former prosecutor, an attorney specializing in animal abuse cases and animal protection, and an essential oil educator for people AND pets. Because of my life-long and career-long love of animals, I have studied with the best of the best for 5 years and I talk from my personal experiences with my own cats, pet clients, and shelter pets I’ve helped. And I have the pleasure of being friends with and learning with some amazing veterinarians who actively use Young Living essential oils in their practice.

So let’s start with this graphic. First, it’s deceptive. There’s no ownership on the graphic which concerns me about who created it. While it’s raising the discussion about safe and unsafe use of essential oils with cats and I’m sure this person created it out of concern, it’s creating confusion and fear by giving partially true and partially untrue information. This graphic is deceptive because it’s partially accurate and partially not. The concern is NOT be about the type of oil (Lemon, Eucalyptus, etc.). The focus must be on the BRAND of oil and whether the brand is intended to be used with animals.

Most brands (about 98%) have essential oils that have been adulterated during the distillation process (by using solvents and alcohols to get the oils out quicker and cheaper). Adulteration could simply be that something else is in the bottle (such as a carrier oil, a solvent, synthetic essential oil, etc). Most essential oils are simply to fragrance a room and are not intended to be used around animals. This is what is dangerous to cats and ANY animal.

Essential oils are very popular right now (because of the success of Young Living) and you can find them anywhere. Seriously, I found them at a gas station this past week. One rule of thumb is that you get what you pay for in essential oils. Essential oils are NOT cheap. When they are grown and processed properly and safely, you will pay for that. So when you find a bottle of Lavender at the local discount store for $3.99, it’s not really Lavender and it should not be used in any way around pets (topically, diffused or ingesting).

So how do you know what’s safe for cats?

  • Go to the company website to see if there is any mention on the website about animals or pets (use the search function). If a company does not mention that their oils can be used with animals, don’t use them with animals! If something goes wrong, you will have no recourse because you used the essential oils in a way that was not promoted.
  • Look to the process that the company uses to grow, harvest, and distill their essential oils. Does the company handle everything from start to finish, do they disclose the process? If not, I would not recommend those oils to be used with pets. Transparency is important.
  • If the label has too many cautions on it, especially cautions against ingesting or topical application, the label is telling you that something else is in the bottle.
  • And please use common sense. No rational person would pour an entire bottle of essential oil on themselves, so don’t go to the extreme with your cat. And while some constituents in essential oils may be difficult for cats to process, when you use an essential oil that is safe and use it in a responsible manner, your cat will be safe.

Let’s go back to the label. I always ask people to do their own research since federal labeling laws do not require much on a label. Just because an essential oil is labeled “pure” or “organic” does not mean that it is pure. And there are no labeling laws for essential oils to be listed as natural or organic.

For example, I have a bottle (for teaching purposes) of an organic lemon oil. On the label it says “dilute properly, not for ingestion.” Since when can’t you ingest a lemon or its oil? I don’t like to call out companies by name so I blocked that out. But the label is accurate and is telling you that while the lemon may have been grown organically, the process of getting the oil into the bottle did something to make it unsafe to topically apply or ingest. These are the details that make most essential oil brands unsafe for pets. Yet this label says nothing about pets (and it’s legal).

Every few months I research the top essential oils companies to see which ones mention animals on their website. When I searched the top 10 last month, only 1 mentions pets on their website … Young Living. Only Young Living has a Veterinary Advisory Council, puts on the only national Animal Essential Oil Conference (which I’ve had the honor to teach at), and a vast majority of books on oils for animals have been written about Young Living oils. It’s not something recent, it’s been part of Young Living’s foundation since it was started in 1994. One product created by Young Living early on was the Animal Scents Ointment (an amazing ointment for skin support). There is TEA TREE in the ointment, yet it is safe to use with cats. Other Tea Tree oils can harm/kill a cat. This is because Young Living has their own farms and they grow, harvest and distill their own oils with simply low pressure and steam/water (no solvents). This one example shows you how the purity of an oil can be safely used.

What did I do?

I ditched all the other oils brands I had used for 15 years and now only use Young Living oils with shelter pets and my cats successfully and safely. I’m not saying that to sell you oils, I’m saying that because I’ve spent years researching this and it’s true. This is why I have a 2nd career educating people about oils because other brands of oils can/will be toxic to cats and other pets because those oil brands were not intended to be used around or on pets. And while I do make money from my Young Living business, anyone who is providing value and a service to others should be paid, right? You wouldn’t go to your dentist or auto mechanic and criticize them for charging you, would you? So whether you like, loathe or are indifferent to Young Living, let’s just put that to rest right now because I want to educate you.

A quick lesson in how to use essential oils with cats

Topically: Even with the purity of Young Living oils, you have to know HOW to use the oils with cats. I can only recommend topical application of Young Living oils with cats and pets. A Young Living essential oil must be diluted in a carrier oil for TOPICAL application due to a cat’s slower ability to process the oil due to a missing enzyme in their liver. The ratio I use is 9 drops of carrier oil to 1 drop of Young Living oil (no matter what the type of oils is … Lemon, Eucalyptus, etc.). A carrier oil simply is a time release for the essential oil so that it goes in slower for the cat to eliminate properly. This helps with a cat’s enzyme deficiency in their liver for excreting essential oils (and medicine and toxins). And the same is true for small dogs under 25 pounds and pocket pets. This is why I teach classes in-person and online because there’s things you need to know and a store or a website isn’t going to educate you.

Diffusing/Smelling: I can only recommend diffusing Young Living essential oils. Why? Whatever you topically apply, ingest or smell is going into the bloodstream. Diffusing Young Living essential oils in a cold water diffuser (not one that heats water and never a burner) is safe. And yes, you can safely diffuse citrus oils … I do almost every day. Diffusing is very gentle and your pet can go into another room if they have taken in enough. The photo at the beginning of this newsletter is my 5-year-old Rudy. He’s been exposed to Young Living oils since he came to me at 5 months of age. He loves to stick his face over the diffuser and it’s totally safe!

And just a few weeks ago I helped a friend who is fostering a young cat who was taken to a vet for euthanasia because the family was unable to pay for medical care. The cat is safe and in foster care, but is heartbroken. Cats know, they are very intuitive when they are not wanted. The foster mom is in my Young Living team so she let him smell the Forgiveness oil and within minutes his outward demeanor and personality dramatically improved from shut down to engaging and eating. Check out the photos below.

Ingesting: Again, I can only recommend Young Living. Rudy and Lucy who is 19-1/2 year old ingest a Young Living essential oil product daily to help them maintain well body systems! My veterinarian tests their liver values frequently and is amazed at how healthy they are.

If you’re concerned, have your cat’s lab work done before using Young Living oils in any way, then get re-tested in 3-6 months. When a cat is subjected to UNSAFE essential oils over years, it can harm or kill them (it can do so even in a matter of weeks). And if you want to watch a veterinarian talk about blood tests of a cat who was given extensive Young Living essential oils over a 10 day period, check out this video.

Remember … It’s the brand and purity that is important, along with a company that promotes their oils for animals … it’s not the type of oil.

If you want more information, click here to access an online class I recently did specifically on Essential Oils for Cats.

And while I cannot answer specific medical questions about your pets (that’s in violation of federal regulations), I encourage you to stay connected with me to educate yourself. And if you want to learn more and partner with a team of oilers who are doing the same, join me and my team!

Here’s the bottom line … you cannot believe everything that’s on the internet. I would encourage you to research what I’ve said here. Go to Young Living’s website and in the search bar type in animal and pet. Go to Amazon or Life Science Publishers and get some educational materials specifically about Young Living essential oils for pets.

And if you see people talking about this graphic or oils for cats, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE send them this blog post. Education is where we can advance this important field of wellness for pets (and people, too)! So I hope to see you in one of my upcoming in-person or online classes!

Processing the Energy of Grief and Loss

Sadly, this topic close to my heart right now.

My sweet Jacob suddenly and unexpectedly passed away on April 3rd. He was fine a few days earlier, then acted a little sluggish and wasn’t eating as much for a day, and the next thing I know we are in the ICU at the Michigan State University Veterinary School. He was crashing and all I was told was that it was a very fast moving cancer, but they didn’t know what the cancer was. Two weeks earlier, he had full lab work-ups done and there were no problems. So after a lot of questions, little answers, and veterinarians who were baffled by what caused the sudden crash, it was clear that Jacob was passing before my eyes so I held him as we let him go.

Jacob is not the only pet who passed away in the past 3 months. An unusually large number of pets and people have passed on (many unexpectedly) …. and the number is well over 30 just for who I know. I’m searching to find the meaning in all of it. I believe that everyone decides at the soul level when it’s their time to pass on. But why so many in the past 3 months? It’s like they are going in clusters. Do they feel they will be of more service to us in spirit? Do they know something we humans don’t know? It has prompted a lot of discussions but little answers.

What I’ve done in the past month to process the grief, cope with the loss and missing the pitter patter of Jacob’s feet, and to keep my multi-businesses afloat, I have turned to a couple of tools to help me process grief.

The first thing I did was reach for my essential oils. The oils that have truly helped me through this difficult time have been Acceptance (to accept what has happened), Frankincense (which comes in the starter kit and it works on the lung meridian where we store the energy of grief), Gratitude (to be grateful for the time that we had with our loved one) and Joy (because our loved one would want us moving forward in joy and happiness). I was in shock, angry and then numb for about 3 weeks. I used my oily religiously and then it all lifted. By diffusing these oils, I know they have also helped my cat Rudy who deeply loved Jacob.

My favorite ways to utilize the oils for emotional help is to smell them. The oils go into the limbic region of the brain where we store emotions. So diffusing the oils or placing the oils in your hand and inhaling are two powerful techniques to process the energy of difficult emotions.

Next, I placed a ginormous Rose Quartz and Selenite on my bedroom nightstand so that the loving and soothing energy of those crystals would surround me at night.

And then I simply kept talking to Jacob. Just because a person or pet has passed on does not mean that their spirit is not nearby. In the past 6 weeks there have been so many Jacob “sightings” based on Rudy’s reactions. Rudy will start to spontaneously play in a location where he and Jacob would rumble. Rudy will jump up and start to chase something that I cannot see. And Rudy will stare down a hallway as if Jacob is there. I also “see” Jacob out of the corner of my eye. So keep talking to your loved one because they have not left your side.

And if you’re still struggling with overwhelming grief and feel that you cannot move on, please talk with a professional and combine that therapy with an energy healing session. Together, it can be a powerful combination of transformation.

I am sharing this because we all have lost someone and if we do not process the grief, it can cause a host of emotional, mental and physical problems (because grief stores in the lungs). Essential oils, crystals and continued connection to your loved one can help you through it. Even if you have grief from long ago, give these techniques a try.

So while we grapple with the why, the what if’s, and retracing steps to try to identify signs or ways that a different road could have been taken, at some point we all have to grieve and release it. So I wanted to share my story that even in the midst of grief, there is hope and happiness.


Jacob and Rudy, very bonded brothers and best friends

I am so grateful and happy that I had my floppy-eared blue-eyed Jacob in my life, even just for less than 5 years. Everyone who came to my homes in Virginia and Michigan met him because he was a big part of every energy healing and essential oil class. I now can look at his photos and smile and I truly feel his presence still in our home.

Balance and Grow your Life: Is it really possible?

If you ask the Oola Guru and Oola Seeker, they will say YES!

The Oola Guru (Troy Amdahl @oolaguru) and Oola Seeker (Dave Braun @oolaseeker) are two moving’ and shakin’ guys who created the Oola movement. They are helping people balance and grow in all areas of their life. When I first met them in 2014 I thought Is that even possible?

So Dave and Troy ask whether this statement fits your life right now: “Ooh la la … that’s what life feels like when you’re happy, growing, and looking forward to what the world has store for you.” (From the new Oola for Women book) If you’re laughing or crying hysterically because your first thought was oh heck no, keep reading because Oola will change your life for the better.

The Oola Life for me started with the first book Oola: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World which raised my awareness and provided practical steps on how to balance and grow 7 areas of life. I was anything but balanced at that point. The book is a roadmap to rediscovering you! It’s still a book that I go back to and look through all of my highlights and notes.

Then came the free online Oola test where you can see where you rate in these 7 areas of life: Faith, Family, Field, Finances, Fitness, Friends and Fun. It’s eye opening because you will see where you’re life is lacking, lopsided and loopy.

Check out my first test and how lopsided I was. And then the second photo with my results from today.  Much better, right?

My Oola chart on 4-6-15 (just after moving from Virginia to Michigan)
My Oola chart today (4-28-17)

Imagine these 7 areas of life are shaped like a tire. If the tire is lopsided it would be a bumpy ride. If it is deflated in all areas, you wouldn’t go anywhere. But when it’s equal on all 7 sides (balanced) and inflated (growing), you glide easily to your destination.

If you’re doing awesome in your Field (career) but lacking in friends or fun, you’re lopsided. If you’re rocking it on faith and family but financially broke, you’re lopsided. All 7 areas connect. When one struggles, others feel it and it’s a bumpy ride.

Next came the Oola collaboration with Young Living Essential Oils where you can use essentials oils specifically labeled to help you balance and grow those 7 areas of life. And you can enhance them with Oola Balance and Oola Grow oils. So do you need to balance field/work and grow fun? I can personally attest to the power and effectiveness of these oils. When I took my leap of faith in early 2015 and moved from Virginia back home to Michigan, it was Oola Faith, Oola Field, Oola Finance and Oola Grow that kept me steady and believing all would be well. And it was!

Me and the Oola bus in 2016!

Then came the Oola Tour where these 2 guys have been traveling the country in a VW Surf bus covered in stickers! These stickers are from people they have met along the way where each person writes down what they most to achieve and then stick it on the bus!

But now this movement just got even sweeter. Because on May 2nd, the Oola Seeker and Oola Guru have a new book being released. Ladies …. Get ready for Oola For Women!

So I want you to think about these 7 areas of your life: faith, family, field, finance, fitness, friends and fun. Are you balanced and growing all of them? Struggling to survive? Lopsided? If you’re not any of those, I want to meet up with you because you’re a Super  Hero!

So let’s get back to this new Oola for Women book being launched on May 2, 2017. I was selected to be one of the lucky ladies to read an advance copy of Oola for Women and I get the pure joy to share it with you and why you must get this book. I don’t want to give too much away but let me give you a small look into this book.

You need to get this book if any of these apply to you:

• If you feel like you’re spinning too many plates in the air and the plates are starting to wobble and even drop.

• If you feel that you are living your life for others (spouse, children (2-legged and 4-legged), parents, community) and that you have lost yourself in your own life.

• If you wake up in the morning exhausted, drag yourself through the day and then collapse at night just to do it all over again the next day.

• If you feel like you’re in survival mode and being asked what do you want to do with your life results in a blank stare because you lost the skill of how to dream.

• If you find yourself saying I have to (fill in the blank with a task) rather than I get to (fill in the blank with something that brings you joy).

• If you have a glimmer of a dream but those around you talk you out of it and don’t support you.

The Oola for Women book is packed with empowering and emotional stories from women just like you and me. Women who are doing too much and knew they were losing control of their life and identity until they decided to stop the rollercoaster.

Oola for Women addresses these 7 areas of life from the perspective of a woman. Because our fitness issues are not men’s fitness issues. Our friend issues are not men’s friend issues. Women are master multitaskers (which is not a good thing) and masters at putting others before ourselves. You get the gist?

But the book goes even further to help you identify and tackle 7 Oola Blockers that every woman, at one point, has directly faced. And to hop on 7 Oola Accelerators that will help your glimmer of a dream become a reality.

Sounds impossible, right? Get this book, read it from cover to cover, and you will end up knowing what you need to do to live your best life. Because if you’re not at your best, those around you will not get the best you. Helping yourself live the Oola Life is the best thing that you can do for yourself, your family, friends, co-workers and community.

Click here to get the book and after you read it, send me an email or post a comment here about your thoughts and next steps!

And if you want those luscious Oola oils, message me and I’ll show you how to get them.

I’m an Oola Woman and love it. I’d love it if you joined me in this Oola Life!
