Mostly Homemade Mondays - Week 89

If you follow us on Facebook, you know that about a month ago we received our Young Living Essential Oil Premium Starter Kit. That very day we began experimenting with the oils and oil blends, and have noticed great improvements in our emotional health. I kept an e-sticky on the desktop of our MacBook, and documented each of the ways we've used them so far: 
  • Diffused Lemon in the kitchen after stinky cooking
  • Purification in the laundry with my homemade detergent for some musty smelling whites
  • Few drops of Purification in the two filters in the vacuum cleaner
  • Diffuse Peace and Calming every night at bedtime (need to order a backup bottle!)
  • Wear Valor every morning on my wrists, over my heart, and on the back of my neck
  • Frankincense on my facial sun spots (made a Frankincense mist to keep in the bathroom)
  • Diffuse Joy in our home office while working
  • Stress Away (with a roller ball tip) in the car so I can roll it on when I'm feeling tense
  • PanAway on the backs of John's knees after a hard day at work
  • PanAway on John's sore neck
  • Diffuse Peppermint and Lemon (together) in kitchen to increase energy and freshen the air
  • Wore Joy during a hard afternoon of yard work 
  • Diffused Thieves in our basement after we cleaned up flood waters
  • Sprinkled Purification and Thieves on the furnace air filter 
  • Purification on pulse points as a bug repellant
  • Purification as an insect bite soother
  • Diffused Peppermint in the house on an afternoon when I had a headache
  • Wore Peppermint to fight motion sickness in the car
I am excited to continue sharing the way essential oils are changing our lives. Stay tuned!

  1. Hi Kelli,
    What a fantastic link up party! It is so great to explore so many interesting posts. Today I shared a “Curry Vegetable Brown Rice Buddha Bowl recipe” and a healthy mental attitude post “Just Do You! 10 Wonderful Ways To Love the Skin You Are In”. All the best, Deborah

  2. I have been casting spells for many years and I have helped many people, I might be able to help you too. I am honest, and I genuinely care for all the clients who choose me to cast a spell for them.

    If you have any questions about Love, Money, curse, protection, bad luck, divorce, court cases, or about me please call or email me. I really want you to feel comfortable before moving forward with any spells, or other services. I will take the time to explain things to you and provide you with honest advice, to what is best for your situation. I will not pressure you into having a spell cast, I will leave that decision up to you, and when or if you decide to move forward, I might be able to help you.
    I will respect your Privacy. I will not seek to obtain any of your personal information beyond what you might voluntarily offer and all information you might give me including emails, phone numbers and photos will remain private and confidential.
    I perform my Rituals only at night between the hours of 0.00 - 0.59 (South African time) lasting 1 hour but of course, this depends on the nature of the ritual, some rituals might take hours and can also become necessary to be performed at specials places like; flowing streams, cemeteries and other places dictated by the gods.
    I do not want anyone to be under any illusions about my spells and its numerous rituals. Real and effective Voodoo is no child's play, it is expensive because, after the rituals, I will have to destroy all the materials involved by fire and the ashes scattered over a flowing stream or river.
    You will get what you seek.But please understand this might take a lot of time and that individual results may vary. contact +27663492930,

    I feel happy to bring my personal clinical experiences regarding the Natural Penis Enlargement Treatment. I have been practicing for the last 9 years both modern medicine as well as herbal medicine in different cases. So far, I have not come across a product like DR john Penis Enlargement Treatment, until i contacted Dr john which has shown very encouraging results in improving both sexual desire and function. I tested these products with diabetic patients particularly in whom sexual impotence is quite common. I found very good results in those diabetic patients who enjoyed increased sexual function and improved orgasms with the Natural Penis Enlargement Treatment. The herbs used in this formula have shown a positive effect on male sexual functions in terms of increasing desire and offering strong sexual enhancement. In addition, I found that product have shown a considerable increase in the tissue size of the penis and long erection irrespective of age. I feel that this formula can be recommended for those who need real sexual enhancement and better orgasms with a safe and natural effect. Contact him on Email: { or whatsapp him on +2348060259313,
