When someone asks you’re what you’re wearing….

True story:  I ran into someone and we exchanged a hug and she said, “You smell SO GOOD, WHAT are you WEARING?”

True story

True story

Not such an easy question for an “oiler” ….. cause you think…. what AM I wearing?  Is she referring to one of my necklaces?  What’s on my neck?  what DOES she smell?

Well….. I got up AND….

Showered using Sensation body wash, then used my Magnesium spray with Lavender…..then applied my specially designed face “wrinkle prep” which has Clary sage, Frankincense, Myrrh, Geranium, Lavender….then I brushed my teeth with my specially created toothpaste with Peppermint….then I applied Endoflex over my adrenals and Nutmeg & En-R-Gee over my thyroid…..then I did my Bible study time and applied Release to my hands/face/neck and had Awaken in the diffuser…..as I was getting ready to leave the house I applied my “special recipe”  Joy/Neroli perfume in my hair and put Abundance in my necklace diffuser and my bracelet diffuser….then I went to the chiropractor and applied Valor and Deep Relief along the back of my neck….then I was in traffic and applied StressAway…. went back home and put on my very special Sandalwood bead necklace & bracelet…..

What are YOU wearing that YOU smell so good?

No use crying over spilled milk …… or spilled oil either?

True or NOT true?

Well, whomever it was that made up that saying never was a breastfeeding mother.  For if she WAS, then she would KNOW what it takes to package that liquid gold and how very precious and life-giving it is.  Many a mother I know HAS cried if she spilled her pumped breast milk.

Not long ago in one of my “oily groups” one of my downline posted this line:

“I just spilled half a bottle of sacred frankincense on the floor. I forgot I took the dropper cap out and turned it right over onto the floor. I’m going to lay in bed and cry the rest of the evening! This might be worse than the time I spilled 6 oz of freshly pumped breast milk!”   from Katie K.

If you’ve ever been a breastfeeding mother or the partner of a breastfeeding mother then you totally understand the comparison.  That stuff is like liquid gold, I kid you not!  It was no surprise, then, when there came a lot of commiserating with the following comments:

“Did this with Grapefruit two weeks ago.  On the plus side, grapefruit is MUCH cheaper, so sorry for your loss.”  Sarah S.

“OH!  I would be so horrified, so sorry!”  Tracie W.

“OH my GOODNESS, I’m SO very SORRY!  I totally GET it!!  I too have spilled freshly pumped breast milk AND left oils open ALL NIGHT LONG!”  Aurora I.

“OH!  I so understand!  Hubby accidentally drained about half a bottle of PanAway into our mattress one time.”  Erin M.

“I did that once and it was frankincense too.  I used the glass dropper I had and tried to suck up the oil from my office chair mat.  I was so upset.”  Stephanie B.

“I did this with Clarity.  A pretty expensive mistake, too.  I got as much of it as I could with a paper towel and put it in a covered glass container.  I use it now to inhale.”  Tiffany C.

“I did this recently with Peace & Calming on my daughter’s dresser while getting her ready for bed. I frantically wiped it up with my hands and rubbed it all over my chest and back. Great part about Peace & Calming is that I was so relaxed after rubbing all that on me that I was no longer upset about it! LOL..  It’s so frustrating when that happens, especially with an expensive oil. I’m sorry.”  Gina A.

My own loss:  “Mine was Ylang Ylang, the whole bottle, granddaughter dumped it, and my kids cleaned it up AND THREW THE PAPER TOWELS AWAY so sad when that happens indeed!!  On the plus side, my house smelled fantastic for several days!”

AND THEN WE HAD SOME ADVICE, and some GOOD advice at THAT!:

“Soak it up with cotton balls and stick around the house or a wash cloth and smell it all day.”  Miranda R.

“Use a clean cotton cloth to wipe it up then put it in a bag in fridge, that should make it where you can at least inhale it each day for a few days. It might work. Also wipe it all over your body.”  Gloria D.

“Lay on the floor and ROLL in it!”  Barbara W.

“Sniff the floor for the next few weeks!, I feel your pain!”  Sharon H.

“Roll around in it and then charge people $15 to come and smell you!”  Marissa

“I’ve definitely thought about licking the floor before.”  Havalah M.

“Lie down in it!”  Terri W.

Totally reminds me of the scene in Cheaper by the Dozen where all the china is broken, and the mom asks….is everything broken?  Even the little tea cup with the flower on it?”

You just gotta let it go….. but I love the idea of trying to salvage from the loss… what are your ways of making the best of that bad situation?

Feelings Kit

This kit is an INCREDIBLE VALUE…. one of the best offered by Young Living IMHO.  If you add up the individual costs of just the first three oils it totals more than the whole kit combined.  That’s basically getting 3 free oils plus a little bit more  🙂

  • Inner Child:  Member price –  $26.00
  • Present Time:  Member price – $82.25
  • Forgiveness:  Member price – $48.00
  • Total:  Member price –  $156.00
  • Kit total:  Member price –  $155.75
  • Extra oils:  Release, Valor, Harmony

That’s a no-brainer  …. unfortunately this kit is currently out of stock (3/28/14) but we can rest assured that it is being brought back ASAP.  We can be glad that Dr. Young will not settle for any inferior quality oils even if it means some things go out of stock for a time.

Directions for Dryer Balls – Using Lavender

Following is a recipe for  100% wool Dryer Balls from one of my friend/downline ladies.  She is rockin awesome and agreed to share it with you all.  She knows about natural things, and about laundry and about saving $$ with having lots of littles.

Ursula says, “It’s super easy and worth their weight in gold. Takes the place of fabric softener. The wool acts as a static repellant. Very natural. Saves on the electric bill! They knock the clothes around in the dryer aerating the clothes. Creating more room for the air to circulate. Drying the clothes faster.

These were made about a year ago and still have lots of life left in them.

These were made about a year ago and still have lots of life left in them.

  • Find 100% wool, which isn’t easy.
  • Make yarn balls. Slightly larger than mine would work better, I think.
  • I hide the tail of the yard by using a needle and thread it though the middle so it doesn’t come undone.
  • I boil the balls in a large pot. Just to a boil. (The boiling is to felt the wool. So it doesn’t come apart.)
  • Let them sit until cooled.
  • Then dry them with clothes.

My took a week before they dried out. These balls are super absorbent so it takes a while for them to dry out.

I add a drop of Young Living lavender oil to one ball. Toss all the balls with the laundry into the dryer.  It makes the laundry smell good and cuts the drying time in half.”

THANKS so much Ursula for sharing your recipe with us!!  LOVE you and your family!!
