School’s out for SUMMER! Let’s get your survival kit together!!

Here’s what this third-trimester pregnant momma of 6 (soon to be 7) uses to keep us all happy, healthy, and empowered to take on the sun, late nights, and outdoors!

Keepin the “cray” away with hormone support

So let me start by first saying that I am NOT a medical professional, I don’t have a degree, I am NOT a replication of you so what works for me may not work for you, ALL the things affect ALL the things, and none of this is intended to treat, cure, or prevent ANYTHING. So I am in NO WAY an expert, I am not offering medical advice, I am offering my testimony and something to research for yourself! AND I am only speaking Young Living because that’s what I know! I trust them and I use them explicitly! I have been on one their farms, in their facilities, I’ve seen a lab, and planted lavender!

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s chat….

Do yo know what’s in your beauty products? Food? Personal care products? Environmentally around you? NO ONE can say yes to all! We make educated decisions and try to remove as much GARBAGE as we can but we will inevitable be exposed to toxins. Toxins have a negative effect on our bodies. They accumulate. They wreak havoc on EVERY body system. So we combat those negatives with intentional actions!

WHY is it so important? That’s how most of us begin life! OVER 200 TOXINS were found in the umbilical cord in a recent study! Go ahead GOOGLE, I’ll wait! And I know you downloaded the THINK DIRTY app from the last post, so go and put in the leading baby wash and wipes!

Add vaccines, food, environment, stress, medications and it’s paints a pretty scary picture. Ones like we see today in our population.

OK OK! So why share ALL that? Well y’all this is my WHY! My why is educating myself, my children, and all the people! I want my children to know better and do better. I want to do better for them. I want to save them from some of the heartbreak I have seen others suffer. And one way I had do this is to remove as many toxins as possible.

So back to hormones…..I share everything above because they ALL play a part in disrupting our hormones AND THAT can have detrimental affects! That means I am going to do my darnedest to support and maintain healthy hormones! So let’s chat about the things we have and use daily to stay above the wellness line!

FEMALE

A must for me is PROGESSENCE PLUS! It was formulated by a doctor who specializes in women’s hormone issues. Many that he saw had very low or NO progesterone when he tested them. This causes a myriad of issues that run rampant today!

Another MUST is ENDOFLEX! This is support for your endocrine system! I apply on my thyroid and adrenal and on my wrist if i get that afternoon sweet tooth! So what’s your endocrine system? Think metabolism, sex drive, sleep, stress, mood, reproduction, growth and development and more! SUPER important!

DRAGON TIME! I wonder if when this oil was named if the man had to sleep on the couch. This is for that time of the month when the potential for turning ‘dragonish’ is at an all time high, well maybe guaranteed!

MALE

My favorite is MISTER! It was orginally made to support prostate health and male energy! Hubby uses on his pelvic line and outer ankle. It smells so good! This definitely gets used by me too! ***So women can be low in progesterone, high in estrogen, and low in testosterone…so this one can help support females who may find themselves with the latter! So if you are finding the female supports aren’t helping much, try this one!

SHUTRAN!! If this oil had a tagline it would be “HELLO ladies!” It is a favorite of so so so many that there is a whole personal care line! Beard oil, soap, body wash!!! I am hoping for a deodorant in the near future with this manly yumminess!

When you think IDAHO BLUE SPRUCE, think testosterone! Google it!

Other great products for male hormone support are Prostate Health, Copiaiba, EndoGize.

Clean Cleanin

Y’all we are a family of EIGHT!!! That’s a lot of dishes, laundry, messes, food, emotions, messes, personalities, talking, messes, and CHAOS. So we do what we can to help keep things as WELL OILED as possible. It is near impossible for me to do it all myself so our children are required to help. After all they (more times than not) made the messes and they are a part of our family and many hands make for light work. And that still rings true even if it’s like pulling teeth, it just takes longer.

As I type in my bed doing my CBS (Community Bible Study) homework-another blog for another time-they are in the living room watching their afternoon tv of Phineas and Ferb and folding laundry! So lets start there! The biggest organ you have is your………yup, you guessed it your SKIN!! So what we put on it is super important and most of what we are using to clean our clothes is SUPER dirty according to the non-biased THINK DIRTY APP<— y’all are gonna wanna go download that RIGHT now and start scanning your products and also the HEALTHY LIVING APP! You’re welcome and I’m sorry! It’s empowering and scary and thought-provoking!

So what we use is Young Living’s Thieves Laundry soap! None of the ingredients rates as scary! Here’s a post you can read! This amazing woman did the Thieves line so I am not going to reinvent the wheel! Then we use organic wool dryer balls to soften clothes with whatever essential oil on it we are in the mood for!

Also in the picture above to the left on top of the washer is my cleaning basket! Inside we have……

+Thieves Concentrated Cleaner-most amazing product ever! You can make around 30 bottles of cleaner depending on strength! With this one bottle you can clean wood, glass, stainless, counters, toilets, tubs, sinks, floors, carpets, headliners, dishes, clothes, high chairs, jumperoos…..yup #allthethings!highchairjumperoo

+Thieves Hand Purifer and Spray- ALWAYS have extra on hand and keep a supply in the car, purse, diaper bag, kids’ backpacks, ALL THE PLACES!

+Thieves automatic dishwashing powder This stuff is great! I love it! I don’t always get my glasses sparkly but I am ok with it! We eat and drink with the things in there! Keep those nasty powder and gel ingredients AWAY!

+I also use the Thieves Dish Soap! I was super apprehensive because…..DAWN! But this stuff gets baked on bacon grease off pans with ease and FEELS clean and smells great! And when my 4-year-old drinks it to see if he can blow bubbles, it’s not that big of a deal and it’s boosting his immune system :’0)

+Thieves Fruit and Veggie Wash and Spray- Y’all the amount of YUCK on your produce is nasty! Even organic NEEDS to be washed! Do you know what is on it? Do you know what it causes? Look up causes of mouth cancer and then wash your produce!

And since we now use clean cleaners I can have my kids do the chores I loathe that they think are FUN! Like scrubbing the bathtub! Now you can use your Thieves Dishwasher Powder to scrub, but I’ma be real-I can’t afford that! We run our dishwasher at LEAST 2 times a day (if not 3)! BUT we definitely can’t have comet or soft scrub anymore! That stuff would chase me out with it’s fumes! So here’s what I do, I make my OWN and call it poor man’s thieves scrub!

Lastly we diffuse us some Thieves to help clean the air and wash our hands with Thieves hand soap to support our immune system! Because more often than not we have those times when we haven’t clean when or as often as we probably should, because we’ve been busy out and about with all the germy people!bathroom
