Mama looking for a natual way

I’m a stay at home mom to two little boys. I love using Young Living’s essential oils to support our bodies. We’ve switched our nearly every product in our home for a more natural, toxic-free option in the last year. I enjoy making my own products when I can and experimenting with different recipes.

A Few of Katie's Favorite Essential Oils

Progessence Plus

Progessence Plus™ features some of our most-loved essential oils, including Sacred Frankincense and Peppermint oil, to create a serum that perfectly pampers you. Formulated specifically for women, and ideal for women over 30, Young Living’s Progessence Plus is a great addition to your day or nighttime routine.

Wild yam extract and vitamin E support your skin in looking its best, while Frankincense smooths the look of fine lines. Keep your skin looking as young as you feel and add a few drops to your moisturizer or massage it directly onto your skin.

With coconut oil and essential oils such as Bergamot and Rosewood, Progessence Plus uses premium ingredients to moisturize and soothe healthy-looking skin. Plus, you’ll love the convenient and beautiful packaging of this serum. Stash it in your travel bag or display it on your vanity with your other beauty must-haves.


Jasmine** (Jasminum officinale) has a warm, exotic, floral fragrance that relaxes, soothes, uplifts, and enhances self-confidence. Jasmine is beneficial for the skin. It has been used throughout history for romance and attraction and for balancing the feminine energy of the body.

**Jasmine is an absolute or essence, rather than an essential oil.


Lemon Vitality

Containing the naturally occurring constituent limonene, Lemon is a key component in the popular products Thieves, NingXia Red, and Inner Defense. Its fresh citrus flavor makes a bright, flavorful addition to food and water.


It’s no surprise that Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) has been sought after since ancient times. The complex aroma of this oil can elevate many aspects of your life. Diffuse Young Living Frankincense oil to refine your sense of purpose or add it to your beauty routine for a luxurious experience.

Frankincense essential oil has an earthy, uplifting aroma that’s perfect for grounding and spiritual connectedness. Create a safe and comforting environment when you diffuse or inhale this empowering oil—a perfect opportunity to collect your thoughts. When you seek purpose or engage in prayer or meditation, use this oil to enhance your experience.

In addition to elevated spiritual experiences, the benefits of Frankincense essential oil include maintaining radiant skin. Its ability to smooth the look of healthy skin makes this oil a key part of our Boswellia Wrinkle Cream™.

Frankincense is also an important ingredient in Awaken™, Brain Power™, Forgiveness™, and Highest Potential™.


Orange essential oil, cold-pressed from the rinds of oranges, has a juicy aroma reminiscent of the fresh fruit. An important ingredient in popular blends such as Citrus Fresh™, Abundance™, Christmas Spirit™, and Peace & Calming®, Orange oil offers a sweet, peaceful aroma that can fill a room with a sense of peace, harmony, and creativity.

Try making Orange essential oil part of your morning routine—either diffused or applied topically—to start your day off with an inspiring boost of citrus aroma. Orange, like other citrus oils, can cause photosensitivity, so avoid applying it to exposed skin before spending time out in the sun. Orange is delightful on its own, or you can combine it with complementary oils such as Lemon, Tangerine, Grapefruit, Cinnamon, Neroli, or Patchouli.

You may now eat off of the counters!
April 16, 2016

Let’s say you’ve just got done cleaning the kitchen after the kids go to bed (because who has time to do this while they’re awake?). The last thing you’d typically do is wipe down the counters. You grab your regular ole chemical cleaner and towel, then scrub away, getting rid of all the crumbs and juice spills. You’re finally done for the day and grab a well deserved treat. Before that treat reaches the plate, you drop it on the counter. If you’re anything like me you go into a mild panic of “OH MY GOD I HAVE TO PICK THAT UP QUICK!” and “wait, do I REALLY want to eat something that probably just absorbed some of that chemical cleaner I used?” Let’s just say my days of remorsefully throwing away otherwise perfectly good treats are behind me. Enter Young Living’s Thieves Household Cleaner. I LOVE this product. It contains ingredients from renewable plant and mineral sources, vegetable-based surfactants, and even more Thieves and lemon essential oils for extra cleaning power.


Lemon is well known among natural cleaning groups. Just Google “Lemon for cleaning” and you finds thousands of articles ranging from how to disinfect your cutting board to adding lemon juice to brighten whites. Thieves is a special blend of essential oils from Young Living containing clove, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus, and rosemary essential oils. The cleaner itself is a concentrate and you use different dilution rates to make separate cleaners.

thieves dilutions

I currently use a solution of 3/4 of a capful to 8 oz of water, which is about a 1:20-1:25 ratio. The 1:30 shown in the above picture just wasn’t cutting it for what I originally used it for. I’ve since kept that ratio because it worked so well. The only issue I’ve had with it is that my ratio tends to wipe a little bit of paint off my walls. I have yet to get around to making a more diluted solution to try on them. But for everything else this dilution has worked. I’m talking windows, mirrors, counters, highchairs, you name it. I’ve even been known to throw a capful into my laundry when I left the clothes in the washer too long. You can even add it and some water to a foaming soap pump and voila! Hand soap. And do you want to know what I think the best bonus of this product is? It smells like Christmas! Now when I’m cleaning, instead of coughing and getting headaches from bleach, my husband walks around singing “it’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas, everywhere I go.”


Here’s another bonus: because the Thieves Household Cleaner is sold as a concentrate, you end up saving a lot of money. Since most people use the 1:30 (1 capful to 30 parts water) dilution for most cleaning, if you broke that down into ounces then the 64 oz bottle of cleaner would end up making 128 30 oz all-purpose bottles of cleaning spray! That’s .88 cents per bottle! Now where are you going to find chemical cleaner for that price?


My Oily Pregnancy

My Oily Pregnancy
November 30, 2015

This is my first “Oily Pregnancy”, as some would call it. We’re a little over halfway through and I’m so glad I’ve had them. I dislike using OTC medications during pregnancy, and with this one being a bit harder than the last, I needed something to support my body. Here’s my list:

Deep Relief Roll-On: I’ve used this oil blend for any discomfort I’ve had. I apply it to the back and sides of my hips, low back and shoulders. I love the cooling sensation that comes from the Peppermint in this blend. Combined with yoga and walking on the treadmill is has helped me to stay active with my toddler.

Lemon: I love Lemon essential oil in my water even when I’m not pregnant. Since my goal intake is 80 ounces of water per day, Lemon helps to make it less boring.

Joy: I’ve been using Joy to start my days off right. I apply a drop over my heart in the mornings and I’m good to go. Joy essential oil blend contains Jasmine, which is one of my favorite scents.

Progessence Plus Serum: I also apply this blend in the morning around the insides of my ankles. Progessence Plus is a harmonizing serum that is designed specifically for women.

NingXia Red: Chasing around a toddler is exhausting. I added 1 ounce of NingXia Red in the early afternoon to help me stay energized for the rest of the day. It’s much better for you than coffee (usually mine is loaded with creamer and sugar) or energy drinks, and you don’t get a crash a few hours later.

I’ve been working on my “Labor Oils” list (although if this birth is like the last it’ll be a “Post-Partum List” so be sure and check back soon for that!
