I am loving my NEW beauty counter line of cosmetics and facial regime products! 

Not aware of the brand?! You should be!

They are lobbying Capitol Hill to get us the most non-toxic, safe, high performance body, facial, and hair care products in the USA– possibly world! 

No regulations have been set by the U.S. Since 1938 on chemicals that are put in our personal products.  With those regulations ONLY 11 ingredients are prohibited!  

The European Union has 1,400! Beauty Counter has went a step further and made a list of 1,500 THEY WILL NEVER USE in any of their products because of known carcinogens, hormonal disrupters, allergens, and so on and so forth! 

Interested in learning more–

Check out beauty counter for yourself or message me!

Today, I starting the Advocare 24 day challenge– hoping to jump start with the cleanse and so on…

I did opt out of a few things because of ingredients.

Want to “beef” up your lunch, dust off your immune system, and do it  all at one time?! 

Here’s a healthy food solution! 

  • Grass fed home grown beef
  • Organic quinoa
  • Wild Thymes chili ginger marinade
  • Wild Oats Garbanzo and black beans (I don’t normally buy this brand– but it was a quick pick up)! 
  • Fresh Organic Ginger (shredded).
  • Organic white onion
  • Baleine Sea Salt (sprinkled to taste).
  • Pepper Medley (not sure of supplier). 
  • DoTerra essential oil Oregano 5 drops. 

The oregano is helpful in stimulating your immune system –among other things! 





I let it simmer until the grass fed beef was medium cooked. 

I jazzed the plate up with lemon– feel free to drizzle across meal!

Feel free to substitute and if you do please share with me what you did! 

I love what essential oils do for me, my family, and those who would like to gain control of their family’s health with alternative and healthier measures –please message me! I’d love to help and promote healthier living!

DoTerra Slim & Sassy AND ClaryCalm

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

One week ago today I had decided to start on my essential oil journey with these two! 

The reason being — I’m over weight, have PCOS, hormonal issues, along with other medical conditions that have me drained, depressed, and at a standstill with weightloss and the hopes of ever conceiving. 

In addition to that, deep down — I just want to be healthy and happy! 

My one week of progress:

I have noted less appetite, not sure if it’s the oils or my mind set. Either way, I LIKE IT! 

Since I have hormonal issues, my chin is continually breaking out (check out face mapping– your skin tells a lot about you)!  With that being said– NO BREAK OUTS!  My skin is clearing up!  



I use my clarycalm roll on over my belly and lower abdomen area once a day.  And do 5-8 drops of slim & sassy in my water. Once or twice a day.  DoTerra recommends more– but I’m happy with this right now! 

My MOOD:

Maybe it’s the clear skin, the lack of appetite, or THE OILS are actually working –but I’m feeling lighter! Good moods across the board! 

My exercise routine is yoga once a week. I’d like to get into a nice walk/jog regimen — my back and legs permitting! 

Well, that’s all for now! 

If you are interested in essential oils or just following me in this journey please do so! 

Here’s a link for my DoTerra site as well ✌️💗😊
