A Brit on a healthy mission

I have a very “high stress” career and was suffering from long term insomnia.  I tried so many things to stay asleep at night that it led me to look at what I was putting in my body.  It was during this whole self-evaluation of my life and health, that I discovered essential oils.  There are so many ways essential oils can support a healthy lifestyle and also eliminate chemicals in your home!

I have played around with various different oils to find ones that work for me and my body.  I simply fell in love with them and it put me on my current path to become a certified aromatherapist!

I love to share the knowledge I am gaining and spreading the joy that I have experienced by using Young Living’s essential oils.  Contact me if you want to start your oily journey too!

A Few of Susan's Favorite Essential Oils


Vetiver’s earthy and grounding aroma make it an important part of signature Young Living formulas like ART creme masque, Inspiration, Lady Sclareol, and SleepEssence. Diffuse this unique essential oil for a calming and relaxing fragrance throughout the home.


Petitgrain (Citrus sinensis) is mentally refreshing and emotionally balancing when used aromatically. This oil is also beneficial for skin and hair health. Traditionally, petitgrain has been used to support a healthy nervous system—particularly with nervous exhaustion and stress—as well as to improve instances of excessive perspiration and oily skin and hair.

Peace & Calming

D. Gary Young specially formulated Peace & Calming II essential oil blend as his recommended option and alternate to Peace & Calming. Gary handpicked this new formulation to stay true to the original constituent character of its predecessor and offer the same great experience. The gentle aroma of Peace & Calming II includes Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, German Chamomile, Vetiver, Cistus, Bergamot, Cassia, Davana, and Young Living’s exclusive Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oils.

This proprietary blend creates a relaxing and pleasant aroma when inhaled or diffused. Dilute and apply topically to moisturize and beautify the appearance of skin. Peace & Calming II includes the naturally occurring constituents germacrene D, linalol, alpha-pinene, and bisabolol. Along with Peace & Calming, you’ll now have two unique and powerful options that can be used individually or together for a complementary experience!


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™.

Stress Away

Young Living’s Stress Away™ essential oil blend is a natural solution created to combat normal stresses that creep into everyday life. Stress Away is the first product to contain the unique stress-relieving combination of lime and vanilla pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils.

Stress Away also includes copaiba and lavender to reduce mental rigidity and restore equilibrium. Featuring powerful plant constituents, such as the cedrol found in cedarwood and the eugenol that occurs naturally in vanilla, Stress Away can help induce relaxation and reduce occasional nervous tension.


Clove is an important ingredient in Young Living’s Thieves oil blend, and has a scent that is very warm and inviting. Always dilute Clove when using topically.

Lemon Vitality™

Pressed from the fresh rinds of the fruit, Lemon Vitality is a delicious essential oil that has that wonderfully nostalgic taste and smell of lemon drop candy. It’s a great substitute in any recipe calling for fresh lemon juice, rind, or flavoring—without all the hassle of zesting, grating, or juicing. It’s especially good in shortbread cookies, jams, or even a glass of ice-cold water.

Use Young Living’s Lemon Vitality™ essential oil to add flavor to savory foods like fish and chicken or sweet foods like pastries and cakes.

Essential oils for a healthier me

Better Sleep in 2017

Better Sleep in 2017

Better Sleep in 2017
February 27, 2017

My beautiful oily journey started when I was lamenting to a friend of mine about how I just needed some sleep!  I had been promoted to management at my company 12 months prior, and as the stress piled on, my sleep became less.

I was tired, ooooohhhh so tired, and frustrated.  I felt such despair as I tried so many different things to try and get good quality sleep.  So when my friend suggested I try essential oils, I scoffed.  I mean, honestly, if all my attempts were thwarted – how on earth were essential oils going to help me?  However, at that point I would have tried anything just to help me sleep, and I did.  I signed up for my Young Living Premium Starter Kit and waited patiently for it’s arrival.

As soon as my kit arrived, I diffused Lavender as it is such a beautiful aroma!  I started using Lemon Vitality in my water, and this replaced the 1 whole lemon I used daily.  Frankincense has become my skin’s BFF and I use PanAway after I finish my morning run!

I found that Petitgrain and Vetiver were exactly what I needed to relax and unwind at night.  During the day when I get a little tensed up in the office, I simply diffuse Peace & Calming II or apply Stress Away and take nice deep breaths.  I love how they smell!

My healthy journey in 2017 is just getting started and I’m excited to share it with you!

Detoxing my home!

Detoxing my home!
March 4, 2017

My healthy journey continues!

I began by cutting out processed foods, sugars, gluten, and dairy to detox my body.  It was super aggressive and tough at first.  Then I started feeling amazing 12 days into this new lifestyle and my energy levels soared.  I was bouncing as soon as I woke up and my caffeine intake reduced too!

I started to pay attention to everything I was putting into my body, but not what I was putting on my body or what I was cleaning with.  It made me realize that the amount of chemicals in cleaning products was still getting into my body by simply inhaling them as I was cleaning.  I couldn’t pronounce half the words and that woke me right up.

Since I am super committed to leading a healthy lifestyle, I need to change the way I am cleaning as well.  I researched obsessively for DIY recipes to replace chemical household cleaners, and quickly became overwhelmed.  Right at my fingertips was an easy answer… Young Living’s Thieves household cleaner!  It’s made with 100% plant and mineral based ingredients.  Thieves essential oil is a special blend of clove, lemon, rosemary, cinnamon and eucalyptus.

1 cap of Thieves cleaner mixed in a pint of water gives you an ideal chemical free all purpose cleaner you can use to clean countertops, floors and even your bathroom toilets!  Not only did this help me to replace all the chemical cleaners in my home, but is saves me so much money in the long run!  There is a whole line of Thieves products from hand soap, laundry detergent, dish soap, fruit & veggie cleaner, toothpaste… the lot!

Check it out for yourself and join me on the journey to a healthier life!
