The Enriched Home and Family
Hey incase you were wondering what I do besides oils....this is me, almost everyday. I work at home and talk talk talk to people all day long (not about oils unfortunately). My headset is pretty cute, yes? Lol Also I wish this was tea but it's coffee. I have noticed ☕ doesn't do my skin any favors 👎 so I prefer water, tea, or ninxgia even though I love a good cup of creamer and sugar filled coffee and my face doesn't 😁 What do you do at your "day job"? #younglivingeo#wahm#coffeeaddict
WHAT IS BABY LED WEANING? - Theo just began sitting unassisted, which is one of many criteria to begin BLW. We will be beginning BWL soon now that Theo is 6 months (another criteria, and the overall recommendation for introduction of any food). I thought I'd give you a rundown on what it actually means and why it may be for your family. - First: Make sure your baby is "ready" to begin. Strapping a hunched over baby into a height chair who cannot sit on their own (they need to have an open, and clear airway) is not safe or recommended for BLW. Google ready signs for further details! - Baby led weaning, (or feeding more appropriately. If you are still breastfeeding you aren't actively trying to wean off breastmilk, moreso weaning baby ONTO food) is an approach to introducing solid food where baby is allowed and encouraged to self-feed solid finger foods instead of receiving purées via spoon. BLW babies: -Are encouraged to join the family at mealtime and self-feed appropriate finger foods. Choose what, how much, and how quickly to eat. -Are given the freedom to explore new tastes and textures without the pressure to eat a set amount or a specific food. -Continue to nurse (or receive a bottle) just as often. Solids are to compliment milk, and baby is trusted to know when to increase solid feedings and decrease milk (usually later in the first year).- WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?- ~Less time ...
Laughter echoed my somewhat sleepy cul-de-sac last night as a gaggle of friends layered and slathered ourselves in essential oils, popped open a few bottles of wine and raised our womanly vibrational frequencies. ❤🌱🌱🌱❤ nights like this feed the soul.... women, food, oils and talk of the libido-boosting effects of black pepper and ylang ylang 😉 #yesplease#essentialoilsforthewin#womenwhooil
Kristina's Oil Diaries💧💧
Winter gets all the blame for colds but there is a nasty summer cold going on around us. In an attempt to stay healthy these are a part of our daily routine. . Purify and Citrus Bliss in the diffuser together smell so good and they have amazing germ killing properties. This is running in our house all day long. . I take at least on OnGuard + gel a day and occasionally pop them and put on my boys feet when I feel like there is a threat. . We also make sure to drink TONS of water, take probiotics and eat clean! Love summer for all the available produce. . How do you ensure a healthy summer??
Packing for our vacay... Thieves spray for hotel yuck. Lavender for any bites, sunburn, or owies. Peppermint for anything tummy. Cedarwood in case someone can't sleep. RC for deep breathing. Thieves to make sure no one gets a cold. Digize for indigestion. Peace and Calming for everyone all the time. Purification to keep the bugs away. En-er-gee for me. Lemon for anything swollen and uplifting scent. AromaEase for sea sickness. Frankincense for all the things. #essentialoils#oillife#magic#naturalhealth#lisahartleyessentials#roadtrip#vacay#floridakeys#fishinglife
WHAT EXACTLY ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?? 💧 Essential oils are the life blood of plants - the oxygen carrying substance. They fight infection, contain hormone-like compounds and initiate regeneration in the cells among thousands of other things. What our blood does for us, that's similar to what an EO does for the plant. This makes them ESSENTIAL. Essential oils have a unique ability to penetrate cell membranes and diffuse throughout the blood and tissues. These particles are one of the only things small enough to cross the blood brain barrier. EO's have protective properties which are the plant's natural defense mechanism that work the same in us and therefore have medicinal properties. The key to producing therapeutic grade essential oils is to preserve as many of the delicate compounds within the EO as possible. Constituents can be affected by the plant which the oil was produced, soil conditions, fertilizer, geographic region, climate, altitude, harvesting methods and distillation processes. Young Living offers hundreds of single oils, blends, & oil-infused products, each containing the optimal levels of specific, naturally occurring constituents to maximize their potency. Whether you use oils for aromatherapy, personal care, or household solutions, every aspect of daily life can benefit from the incorporation of essential oils! #yleo#youngliving#essentialoils#learning#eo101#wellness#natural#health#naturalhealth#naturaloptions#healthyliving#younglivingessentialoils#essentialoilsrock#yleverydayoils#essentialoiling#wellnessadvocate
Another #transformation Tuesday too good not to share ------- "It's official...30lbs down in 12 weeks!! But the best part is how GOOD I feel and how my body is working FOR me not AGAINST me! 💪❤ 🌿This #naturalhealthrevolution is not some "weight loss gimmick," it's something different for everyone who wants to reclaim back their health naturally. If you would've told me 12 weeks ago where I'd be today, not only health wise but also emotionally...I would've said "you're dreaming"!!! I'm so glad I took a chance." #lifeunlimited
What have you heard about schizandra? Also known as the five-flavored fruit, schizandra is indigenous to China and is as flavorful as it is beneficial. It gets its nickname from tasting spicy, sweet, sour, salty, and bitter all at the same time. Suffice it to say, you probably wouldn't want this in your mermaid smoothie bowl. This anti-inflammatory adaptogen has been used for over two millennia and is used less for snacking and more for medicinal purposes. You can find it at the store in different forms: dried berries, juice and supplements. It's most commonly used for its anti-aging properties, helping healthy cells, and its nootropic qualities. It also aids with stress and fatigue, while promoting endurance. So often we're reminded that nature has all answers. #evolvingwellness#enviromedica#naturalhealth#schizandra#didyouknow
