Yesterday I had to pick up my little guy early from school because he was running a bit on the warm side.  The crud is apparently going around in their classroom.  Not cool.  Look at him.  He looks so sad.  He literally fell asleep in about a minute of taking the first pic.  I felt so bad.

So we get home and I rub on some Thieves to help support his immune system and some peppermint to help cool him down a bit.  Then he passed out...again...but in a creepy way.  

Before dinner, I made him an epsom salt bath and he just laid there relaxing.  The lavender was relaxing, the R.C. was uplifting (check out the benefits of the oils in this blend -- good stuff!), and the eucalyptus helped support his respiratory system.

**Note:  When using essential oils on children and in general, please use caution as they are very potent.  Do your research and do what YOU'RE comfortable with.  Each mama is different in how they use their oils, but please, please, please use CAUTION.  If you'd like to come check out, in depth, how I use the oils on my kids, there's a Mommy and Me oils class on Facebook.**

Today...he's back to his goofy self.

I want to share my LURV, yes, LURV....of oils with you!  When you grab any PREMIUM starter kit, I'll send $25 cash your way!  Or if you don't like $$, I'm still sending 3 bottles of FREE oil to those who grab a kit.  Plus, you'll be supported 100% by moi and a wonderful group of people.  You'll have more resources than you know what to do with...and if you wanted to grab a paycheck to boot, then cool.  It's yours for the taking!  *Totally not necessary...but just wanted to let you know it's an option. ;)

Hope y'all have a great day!

After applying for 3 weeks to my stomach, I lost 3 inches from my waist.  An inch a week isn't too bad.  I know it could've been more had I exercised more, but I took it easy.  I didn't care for the grapefruit shots at night, but I know they were a big part of the weight loss portion.  

I'm please that it's gone...I'm hoping it'll stay that way.  I still have some ledum and plan on going through another round.  I'll also add more workouts. 

That's all I've got.  So..yeah....try it out for yourself.  You might just be surprised!]]>
<![CDATA[Petrochemical Weight Loss]]>Wed, 25 Mar 2015 13:53:37 GMThttp://kateheadley.weebly.com/oils/petrochemical-weight-lossSay what?!  Petro-what?  Yeah, that was pretty much my response when I saw the posts in my oil groups.  Then I saw the videos and pretty much said, "Yup...it's time!"

So now it's toxin clean up time!  Throughout your life your body builds up toxins.  Toxins from the air, from the everyday products you use, to the food you eat.  They're everywhere.  What's worse is that they get stored in your fat!  Eww!  And they plump up your fat!  Double eww! 

What does the petrochemical "weightloss" regimen do?  Well, it helps remove the toxins and pretty much "shrink" your fat.  Hmm...shrink my fat?  Why not?  Don't get me wrong, exercise and healthy food choices are the way to go, but the toxins are still there.

Now if you've seen any of my posts on Facebook or Instagram, you'll see that I use my oils for everything.  This is just another reason for me to use them!  So now I get to remove the bad stuff and replace it with better, healthier stuff.

How do you do it?

First, here is where I started:
Petrochemical info link.

I basically am combining info from these 2 videos and making it my own.  Make it your own and do what you feel comfortable doing.  

I will be using ledum and citrus fresh, along with 5 drops grapefruit every day. I only recommend the Young Living Brand as those are the only ones I can vouch for.  If you want any of these products let me know and I can help you get your hands on them.  

**Please, please, please...don't use 20 drops of grapefruit.  Your tummy and your bum won't be happy with you.  I'm starting with 5 drops of grapefruit and will increase to 10 halfway through.  If 10 drops is too much for you, just reduce the amount and increase slowly.**

Second, I'm incorporating exercise.  I've been collecting exercises from Love Sweat Fitness.  It's all about a healthy diet and exercise.  Just plain ol' hard work.  Hmmm...who would've thought?  I went to school with Katie and yeah, she's got it figured out!  She's one smokin' lady!

Third, I'm hooking up with Happy Herbivore to help with my meal planning.  We adopted a vegan diet a year ago after watching "Vegucated" and "took a break" for a month because I got tired of eating the same stuff.  All the recipes I would find were so convoluted and required obscure items or tons of soy and junk.  But Happy Herbivore makes it sooo easy and it's really yummy food.  You can do a 3-day trial run to see if you like it.  Personally, I love it!  Here is this week's menu.

And finally, I'm drinking a boat load of water!  I was doing a gallon a day, but that, as you can imagine, had me peeing every 5 seconds.  I felt like I was pregnant again!  So I will get close, but will aim for 10 cups a day.  That's the equivalent of 5 pints for you beer drinkers.  Easy peasy...

Okay, so I've given you the basics, but what do you do with the oils?
I have a TON of mason jars from canning.  So every week (this is a 3-week cleanse) I will pour 1 bottle of Citrus Fresh into my GLASS jar and mix it with 25 drops of Ledum, and to help spread it nicely about 20 drops of a carrier (I'll be using jojoba).   The reason I'm not combining all of them is because I'm afraid I'd use it all too fast.  So if I go week by week, I'm guaranteed to pace myself.  How did I come up with the amount of Ledum to put in?  There are about 80 drops in a 5ml bottle.  Divide that by 3 and you get about 25 drops per week.  I will apply 2 times a day, morning and night, to my target area.  I'll start with my belly.  And then, it's measuring time.  

Then at night, I will take my capsules with 5 drops of grapefruit. If you don't want to fiddle with the capsules, take it in a shot glass with water.  Now as I said earlier, I'll be doing less than what she recommends in her video, but will increase halfway through.  And you know what?  These oils are POTENT.  So less is more. 

I hope to do a mid-cleanse update.  If you want to join in, leave me a message below or grab your oils here.  And let me know how it's going for you.

**Update: I started this last night because I couldn't wait.  I got my measurements, which to be honest, I was kind of surprised.  I have been doing minimal workouts and taking the weight loss trio and have kept off the inches and then some.  Word of caution:  You WILL smell like you walked through a citrus orchard.  Not necessarily bad because it reminds me of California.  It could be worse, right?**

<![CDATA[Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself]]>Tue, 20 Jan 2015 00:20:44 GMThttp://kateheadley.weebly.com/oils/check-yourself-before-you-wreck-yourself7 months ago I started on this journey and I haven't looked back.  

I started the oil regimen to help my family through the cold and winter season.  See, when I was working outside of the home, my kids were germ magnets.  They caught anything and everything and there was nothing that I could do except watch them suffer through all the crud.  Oh yeah...and load them up with OTC and prescription stuff.  And even then, the crud would last 2-3 weeks or longer and I would often have to go back to get a prescription refilled with stronger antibiotics because they couldn't shake it off.  

Then I became a "domestic engineer".  They weren't in the daycare/preschool petri dish, but would soon be returning to the germ pool and I didn't want to see the cycle begin again.  

That's when I was introduced to essential oils.  At the time I had no idea about them and what I should be looking for in a great oil.  I bought tea oil from the health food store.  I tried it, but I didn't see any results.  I gave it a good go, but nothing.  My inner skeptic was confirmed.  This stuff DOESN'T work!  So I moved on.

Then I started to see some posts about oils.  One was from a friend that I trusted.  She was RAVING about them and how they've helped her family with X, Y, and Z.  I thought, if she is using them, she's not joking because this gal doesn't b.s.  So I asked her for more information and started doing research about the company.  And of course, I went on Pinterest.  Pinterest has EVERYTHING!  That's where I saw "there's an oil for __________!"  You name it, there's an oil for it or some sort of combo to make.  
That's when I said, I might as well try.  I grabbed my Premium Starter Kit and haven't looked back. 

I'm here to say that these oils WORK!  Yeah, we still get sick, but our options have changed to the natural alternative.  The symptoms don't last as long and I know what we're taking.  My kids haven't missed a day of school from being sick and I'll take that.  So why wouldn't you?  Why wouldn't you want to take charge of what goes in your body?  

I love helping people.  So c'mon over to the healthy side.
<![CDATA[Women, Run the World With Dragon Time (and Chocolate and Wine)]]>Mon, 12 Jan 2015 17:58:51 GMThttp://kateheadley.weebly.com/oils/women-run-the-world-with-dragon-time-and-chocolate-and-wine
Photo Credit: The Happy Oils
Robin Williams said it perfectly,
If women ran the world we wouldn’t have wars, just intense negotiations every 28 days.
This, my friends, is my miracle oil.  I LOVE my oils, but this one takes the cake.  Chocolate cake.  Mmmm...

The Dragon Time Massage Oil is so aptly named because, let's be honest, we do turn into dragons when approaching and going through our cycles.  I'm guessing that the marketing guys at Young Living went through several names (Shark Week, Dreaded Dragon, The Curse, or TOM -- Time of Month) before they decided on Dragon Time.  It also comes in standard oil form.

So what does it do?  The pure and simple version?  
The result is a soothing, stabilizing massage blend that helps calm and uplift women during challenging times of the month.
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.  

People, it takes my cramps away.  I'm no longer curling up in the fetal position groaning in pain.  I don't have to take the OTC stuff.  It helps tame my mood swings.  Goodbye PMS!  It makes me pleasant to be around.  I'm not bitchy at all!  Hormonal nut, be gone!  I soooo WISH I had it at my last cycle because I ruined my warmest winter coat.  I was so hormonal and irritated that I wasn't patient with my jacket.  I got stuck.  Well, my zippers got stuck and in my hormonal rage I, like the HULK, busted out of my coat and popped a zipper off.  Then I picked up said zipper and threw it.  Next came the jacket.  **Not my best moment.**  I can deal with anything the world throws at me, even my kids!  --- Like seriously, I calmly and quietly sent my 6 year old storming off to her room for giving me attitude and she slammed her door.  And me, I'm just sitting here smiling.  Anything I tell you.  An - Y - Thing!
Additionally, from other testimonials as I don't have this issue, but it can help with irregular cycles.

How do you use it?  I apply it to my lower abdomen and lower back.  And if I need an extra boost of emotional grounding, I add Valor to my wrists.  

How do I get it?!
If you've been looking at oils for awhile and want to have a decent stash and a diffuser to boot, you can sign up as a wholesale member with the Premium Starter Kit here to get the discounted price (who wants to pay retail?!) and add the extra oils to your order.  **This week, ending January 17th, I will be giving a $10 credit and a copy of The Happy Oils Handbook out to those who purchase a Premium Starter Kit.**  If you don't want to grab the PSK, contact me and you can use my discount, because again, who wants to pay retail?

So ladies and gents, get this for yourselves, your wives, your daughters, granddaughters or your best friend.  Those around them will thank you!  And don't forget the wine and chocolate.  Just because it deals with all the junk, doesn't mean you still can't indulge. **Also, it doesn't eliminate the flowing tears from watching Parenthood.  I'm just saying...**

Fractionated Cocos Nucifera (coconut) Oil, Vitis Vinifera (grape) seed oil, Lavandula angustifolia† (lavender) oil, Foeniculum Vulgare† (fennel) oil, Salvia Sclarea† (clary) oil, Salvia officinalis† (sage) oil, Cananga Odorata† flower oil, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) germ oil, Achillea Millefolium† Oil, Prunus Amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, Olea Europaea‡ (olive) fruit oil, and Jasminum Officinale†††.Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ essential oil
‡ Organically grown in accordance with the California Organic Foods Act of 1990.
††† 100% pure absolute

**Also note that it does have clary sage, which is great for inducing labor and helping it along the way.  So please avoid it during. There is also some info you can glean from The Gentle Babies book and how to use essential oils.

<![CDATA[Number 2 Spray]]>Fri, 19 Sep 2014 22:02:53 GMThttp://kateheadley.weebly.com/oils/number-2-spray
Poo spray!
So in my travels and browsing airports, I came across Poo-pourri.  I remember laughing out loud because their marketing was so genius.  "Girls Don't Poop."  I had forgotten about it for quite some time, but was reminded that there HAD to be something to use after the bazillioneth time I was wiping my son's bottom.  He's not a baby anymore and is still trying to learn to take care of his own business.  Let me tell you, it's not fun having that job.  I love my son, but man!  He can clear a room. 

So I went to their website and lo and behold, they listed out the EOs that they use.  And lucky me, I had them!

I grabbed my 2 oz blue glass bottle and my oils: Lemongrass, Grapefruit, and Bergamot.  
I put in 20 drops of each oil and filled the bottle with water (Note: Don't fill all the way to the top because you need to put the sprayer in.).  Done!  Like my daughter says, "Easy peasy, nice and easy."  The combo smells pretty nice.  It's a citrusy scent that is quite pleasant.

Now to use it and put it to the test.  Buddy told me he had to go.  YAY!  This will probably be one of the few times that I'm excited to wait for him to do his business.  I grabbed the bottle, shook it up, and sprayed about 6 sprays into toilet.  Then...I waited...

The words finally came, "Mom, I'm going poo.  I'm done!"  Every. Single. Time.  Now usually I wait a little bit, gather my wits, and inhale deeply and hold my breath.  This time I practically rushed in to help him.  I walked in and was pleasantly surprised.  My eyes didn't water and I was able to help him without gagging.  Win - Win!  I also did an extra spray for good measure when he was done.  No fan necessary! 

To make this potion, it cost $5.70 (price per drop + bottle)!  Score!  Plus, I still have my Lemongrass for digestion and respiratory/sinus infections; my Grapefruit for weight loss and anxiety; and my Bergamot for anxiety and hormonal support.   Look how versatile they are!

I want to make another variation with Eucalyptus, Orange, and Spearmint.   And with Christmas coming up, I might do a Clove, Cinnamon, and Spearmint. 

Now you have your own "poo-pourri".  Your nose will thank you for it!
