Young Living Essential Oils

Our family has been using Young Living essential oils since December. I have been completely blown away by the benefits of the oils! When I first heard of the oils, I thought it was a crazy idea that people would use an oil to treat or prevent an illness... Well, I'm a firm believer now!

I have stopped migraine meds with M-Grain, down to taking acid reflux meds every third day with Digize & Pepperment, off of sleeping meds with Lavender, Cedarwood and Peace & Calming. I've also stopped taking Claritin using Lemon, Lavender & Peppermint instead. I get over mid day slumps with En-R-Gee. I could go on and on... While I do believe modern medicine is necessary in some situations, I love the idea of treating issues at home naturally. 

I'm learning more about the oils daily, let me know if I can help you get started or answer any questions you might have. I started with the premium starter kit pictured. It's a great way to try some of the most popular oils to see what you like.

Board and Batten Project

My husband and I had talked about putting up board and batten for a few months, but knew it would be a huge job.  This was one of our biggest projects to date, but made such an impact!  I am in love with how it turned out!

We started with some free labor...  Ha!  She begged us to help rip off the old baseboards!  This little girl loves anything DIY.  Just like her Mom & Dad!

The hubby then started cutting boards & nailing them up with his nail gun.  That thing is amazing!  Saves so much time!

Ahh... Starting to see what it's going to look like!  I seriously thought I was going to go crazy from all of the messes at this point...

My husband working hard.  Did I mention that this was his first big woodworking project without his Dad's help?  This man is amazing!  We had to put plastic up everywhere to protect the rest of the house from the dust.  Lots and lots and LOTS of sanding!

So close to being finished.  That's what I kept telling myself, until I realized how much painting I had to do.  I painted all of the trim all day every day for three days!

The finished dining room!  I am in LOVE with the light airy feeling in this room now.  All she needs now are some pretty hardwood floors.

The finished entryway!  My husband did such a good job on this project, I may just find a few other things to add to to the honey do list!

Thanks for stopping by!  You can see some before pictures of these spaces here.  Feel free to pin any pictures!
