My 5 Must Have Books

I often get asked about the books I read, so I thought it was time to do an official post. I had a really hard time narrowing this down, because I really have so many I love, so I'm sure there will be a part 2 at some point, but for now I'm going to stick with my favorites. The ones I pull out often. My bedside table is filled with books full of inspiration, positivity,  and even some ass kicking if I need it, but they have really helped shape the person and entreprenuer I've become. 


You've heard me mention this one before and there is a reason. It covers all aspects of life, yet it is sooooo simple. Read it, seriously, you won't regret it, I promise! It changed my life!

THE POWER OF YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND - This one was very impacting. I was very young when I ready it. My Dad gave me this book when I was a teenager and I remember my mind being blown and wondering if this was really true. Ever since, I implement more and more of this type of actions and ideas into my life and it is constantly reinforced how important your ind is and how much power your consciousness has.  



THE POWER OF INTENTION - I've been a fan of Wayne Dyers for a long time, his peacefulness and positivity are so inspiring. I came across the quote below and immediately wanted more and this book did not disappoint. 


"When you squeeze an orange, you'll always get orange juice to come out. What comes out is what's inside. The same logic applies to you: when someone squeezes you, puts pressure on you, or says something unflattering or critical, and out of you comes anger, hatred, bitterness, tension, depression, or anxiety, that is what's inside. If love and joy are what you want to give and receive, change your life by changing what's inside."

YOU ARE A BADASS -  A friend recommended this one to me and it is the gentle ass kicking I need every now and then to remind me that we are all human and special. We all have stories to tell, lessons to learn, and insight to provide. This is a good one if you ever doubt it. 

THE FOUR YEAR CAREER - Oh man, where do I begin? Total Game changer for me. After reading this I decided to give up a career I had built for 5 years to pursue something else.  I had very limiting beliefs about network marketing before reading this book. We all know that person in Network Marketing that put a bad taste in our mouth. Then I read this book after coming across oils. It completely changed my perspective and lite a fire in me. I have such a love for holistic care, detoxing, and entrepreneurship, it was almost a no brainier after reading this book. 




There are so many books I've read that were incredibly life changing. So look out for part two. I'll be sharing soon and subscribe to get these posts sent straight to your email. 

Quick tips on how to use your starter kit

There are so many amazing ways to use the oils in your starter kit. I'm going to just name a few in this quick little article to help you get started. I've also got a few money saving tips, several that will certainly help justify the cost, but I really want to show you how to immediately start using our oils.  Through January 31st ONLY you will get an extra special free oil from Young Living and three oil rollers from me. I love mine and keep it with me throughout the day. 


Peace and Calming - Oh man, where do I even begin with this one. It's amazing. I am in shock this one is completely free through January 31st. It's been out of stock for what sounds like a LONG time. I had to get a bottle and see what the buzz was all about. So glad I did. It became a fast favorite. 




Lavender - Placed a couple drops on our feet to help us sleep or diffused to help us relax. I loved combining it with lemon, the combo is such an uplifting a relaxing aroma. 




I think this might be the oil that made me a beliver. My husband has asthma and if he gets a cold it is VERY rare that he doesn't have to go to the doctor. He often has to get on steroids and sometimes a breathing treatment, sometimes even antibiotics as well. He has a really rough time and it always costs a lot of money. Well, he started to have a cold. I put thieves , lemon, and copiaba on his feet, I put RC on his chest several times a day, it has amazing respritory support. He was better in just a couple days with no medication or doctors visits. I was shocked. I will not go without this oil ever again. 




Stress Away - the name says it all. It really does help alleviate stress. I think most importatnly it supports your systems during stressful times to help keep blood pressure down and continue regular sleep patterns. 




Lemon - Boosts immune system, applied this and thieves on our feet and added to tea when we were fighting a cold and it worked like magic. I also added lemon, thieves and purification to make an all natural cleaner that is toxic free and smells AMAZING! Saved a large chunk of change making our own cleaning products. 




Thieves - Again, I added them to an all natural cleaner, smells amazing. I also added a few drops on our feet while fighting a cold and it supported our immune system so much that we overcame it quickly with no medicine or doctor visits. That easily saved nearly $100 on co-pays and medicine.



Purification - Kills germs and eliminates odors, I've heard it's amazing to out a few drops on a cotton ball and put it in the bottom of the diaper genie.  Diffuse when there are germs in the house to avoid spreading. 




Digize - This was pretty amazing, it helped with an upset tummy for my son, and did it pretty quickly too. I was very impressed. Again saving a lot of money of medicine. 




Peppermint -  One of my favorites. As soon as I feel a headache coming on I put a little on my temples and the back of my neck. I will not go without this in my life again. It may be one of my favorites.  




Panaway - This oils is amazing for sore muscles. When we go on a really tough hike I am so grateful I have this when I get home. 




Frankincense- This is probably my all time favorite, so far at least. It is amazing. The healing properties are just crazy. I wish I could tell you everything it has done for us. The FDA doesn't allow you to say it cured cancer. It will only allow me to say it supported our immune systems, but let me tell you, it's powers are pretty unbelievable. This one, to me, is absolutely priceless. 



Copiaba - This oil supports many of the body's systems. It seems to also be used as a magnifier. It can help magnify the properties of the oils you're already using. 








Stress and Anxiety

I know so many people who have stress and anxiety in their life. If you don't, let me in on your secret. I feel like I've done better and better over the years through meditation and yoga, but oils really have been the cherry on top. They have made me feel so much more balanced, honestly at this point I feel like I'm on cloud nine. 

Right now, lets talk abut Peace & Calming. I joined Young Living in November, I was already hearing talk of this oil, but it was out of stock. In December it came back in stock. I have never seen so many people freak out. Everyone in the oil groups I'm in were soooo excited.  I had to see what it was all about, right!?! 

This oil is amazing! I can't even describe the feeling I get, other than absolute peace and calm washes over me.  I've heard so many success stories with this oil, ADD, Sensory issues, PTSD, panic disorders. So if you have even remotely considered starting with young living now is definitely the time. 

It has Orange, Tangerine, Frankincense, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, and the coveted Blue Tansy. Blue Tansy is apparently very temperamental to grow and it goes out of stock A LOT. It's actually unavailable again right now, except, From January 21st -31st you get it FREE in your Premium Starter  Kit. CRAZY. They are offering it to everyone who signs up for a membership for the rest of January. So worth it!
