Abundance

Abundance is on my mind and I wanted to share a few things that I do to stay in alignment with attracting wealth and abundance…because no matter where we are in life, we could all use ‘more money’ right!!!

Because we are all vibrational beings, being in alignment with wealth is very important.

So, what can you do to be in ‘Alignment’?

 Meditate and Visualize – It is pretty much my solution for everything… . Money is just energy and there is plenty of it available to all of us. There is no one pie in the sky..

Oils – We have a gold mine in the form of ABUNDANCE essential oil. It has been formulated specifically to attract abundance in your life. Applications in the comment section.

Use RELEASE Essential Oil before applying abundance to release any old patterns that are stopping you Releasefrom attracting abundance.

 Work through your ‘Mind Sh.t’ – Mind is so powerful. Watch what beliefs you are actively carrying – “I don’t have enough” ” I will never be able to make that kind of money”. Those beliefs will hold you back in attracting abundance. Some of it steeps from deep old patterns.

Have Gratitude for your current situation and Clean out your Money center / Carrier center in your home. When you appreciate what you have, you will get more. The law of attraction. More in the comments.

 Keep records of where you spend and trim the fat. $5 tea latte 5 days a week = $100 a month. I am going to leave it at that.

Dryer Sheet

Let’s talk Dryer sheets – Simple Answer. Throw out any dryer sheets you are using, Please 🙏

Few options – Use Seedling line baby wipes – yes, baby wipes👶. Works really well. Try it. And it also works great to remove make up. So many uses :)

Use wool balls – Add a couple of drops of your favorite EO on to the dryer balls and throw in the dryer.

Roll up a sock into a ball – add a couple of drops of your favorite EO and throw in the dryer.

My favorite EO’s for the dryer – Stress Away, Purification, Thieves, Lavender, Lemon. What is yours?

Thieves Dish Soap and Thieves Dishwashing Detergent 

Thieves Dish soap -It is very concentrated, so I tend to dilute it half with water. I will hop on live sometime today to show you what I do. But can I just say, it works really well.

Have you ever wondered why YL household products including the dish soap, shampoos, household cleaners produce no suds..

Nerd talk
There are a couple of good reasons for no suds: 1) essential oils change the surface tension of bubbles, making them more likely to pop, and 2) most bubbles you find in liquid soaps are a byproduct of SLS or Sodium Laureth Sulphate.

SLS is a known ocular irritant, dermal irritant, can be absorbed across the skin, and may also be associated with hair loss and aquatic toxicity. Therefore YL chose to exclude it from their products.
.
So, take a tip from me: skip the bubbles. They mean nothing for the cleansing power of the pr14 - Thieves with Thieves Lineoduct.

Dishwasher Detergent – Honestly, it is going to require some getting used to. You have to scrub the dishes a little bit before putting it in the dishwasher. My hubs is not happy with it. But I refuse to compromise on residue, so we continue to bicker about it. I just take the extra time to scrub it and after I played with it a bit, it is much better

My nightly Young Living Supplements

Watch this super short video where I talk about daily supplements.

Most of Young Living’s amazing line of supplements are infused with essential oils. What makes that cool? Without oils, even the highest grade supplements have about a 42% blood absorption rate in 24 hours. With essential oils that absorption rate is 64% in 30 minutes, and 86% in 1 hour! Amazing! See? Essential oils make everything better!

With YL’s nutritional supplements, you can have confidence that you are getting more than
just a trend or a lucky guess.

Savvy Minerals FAQ’s

So, many folks have asked me what is different about Savvy Minerals (SM) in comparison to other mineral based make up out in the market. Here are some basic questions answered…Credit goes to Carol Gardener – A Young Living Diamond.

1. Where is SM made?
US Vendors
2. Where are the SM brushes made?
Italy
3. Is SM organic?
Because minerals are inorganic, organic labeling on mineral makeup is misleading.
4. Is there lead in the makeup?
SM goes through the same testing our Young Living oils do. The ICP test can detect any metals in the product. If there were any heavy metals, it would not pass our testing process. Lead makes its way into cosmetics vis synthetic dyes and lake dyes. SM has neither in their lip products as we use only micas to color the lips.
5. Is SM vegan?
This product is comprised of mineral-based ingredients and, therefore, is considered both vegetarian and vegan friendly. However, the lipsticks and the lip glosses have beeswax so they are not considered vegan. When the mascara is released, it will have beeswax in it too.
6. What about Mica?
Micas are how you get color from earth elements without using synthetic dyes. It limits us on colors, but it eliminates coal tar, petrochemicals and synthetics.
7. What about Titanium Dioxide?
The titanium dioxide used in SM is cosmetic grade.
8. What about Potassium Sorbate in the Misting Spray?
Potassium sorbate is a salt of sorbic acid which is naturally found in some fruits (like the berries of mountain ash). The commercial ingredient is synthetically produced creating what is termed a “nature identical” chemical (chemically equivalent to the molecule found in nature).
What it does: Two words: Fights bacteria. Most personal care products are made with a lot of water and a variety of nutrients (consider all of the natural oils and botanicals in Honest products!) which makes an incredibly hospitable breeding ground for microorganisms. What’s worse — the product might smell and look just fine, but be swarming with bacteria or fungi that are dangerous to your health.
Effective preservatives are vital for ensuring safety! Why we use it: Potassium sorbate is a food-grade preservative that has been effectively used for decades and is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) to preserve food products. Studies using dilutions similar to what’s used in body care products found it’s practically non-irritating and non-sensitizing. In fact, the toxicity of potassium sorbate is pretty close to that of table salt! What’s more, it’s included in the Handbook of Green Chemicals, it’s approved by the Natural Products Association, and is also Whole Foods Premium Body Care approved. And their standards, developed by a team of scientists over the course of years, are some of the strictest available.
9. How long does it last?
As a rule of thumb, once opened and you begin to use it, different factors contribute to the shelf life and deterioration of the pigment: humidity, light, brush cleanliness etc. Once opened, use it within 12 months. Rule of thumb for mascara once opened and used: 3 months Lips once opened and used: 6 months
11. What does “foiling” mean?
Spray the brush with the Mist, dip the brush into the eyeshadow and apply like paint. Keep applying and layering. It helps the pigment bind together so it gives a really deep dimension of the color.
12. Why does the “other” mineral makeup makes me break out in pimples?
Bismuth is a metal mineral that when worked into the pores, aggravates the pores and causes irritation and breakouts. Savvy Minerals by Young Living uses Arrowroot Powder and Kaolin Clay. Both are calming to the skin, help to absorb excess oil and moisture on the skin and make the skin feel silky smooth.
13. I’ve got a tight budget. What do you recommend if I only have $150 to spend?
Foundation 3 eye shadows misting spray 1 lipstick 1 gloss Be sure to get on Essential Rewards so you can add more makeup products each month and earn free stuff along the way.
14. How do you match foundation?
HOW TO SELECT THE RIGHT SAVVY MINERALS FOUNDATION FOR YOUR SKIN TONE
Mineral foundation is very forgiving. You can lighten or darken by layering the product on. And it doesn’t get “cakey” or heavy. A lot of people have three different foundation shades and use them year round. Lighter in the winter months and darker in the spring and summer months. Here are some tips for selecting the right foundation color for YOU:
  • Check Your Veins Push your sleeves up and look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. Are they blue or green? If they look more blue, you likely have cool undertones. If the veins look greenish, you’re warm.
  • The Jewelry Trick Think about whether you look better in silver or gold jewelry Typically, girls with cool undertones look better in silver and platinum metals, and warm-toned women look better in gold.
  • The Neutral Test Think about what neutral shades flatter you best. Does your skin, eyes, and face look better in bright white and black hues, or ivory, off-whites, and brown/tan shades? The former means you’re probably cool-toned, and the latter, warm.
  • Eye and Hair Color Your natural eye and hair colors can help figure out your coloring. Customarily, cool people have eyes that are blue, gray, or green and have blond, brown, or black hair with blue, silver, violet and ash undertones. Conversely, warm-toned women usually have brown, amber, or hazel eyes with strawberry blond, red, brown, or black hair. Their hair tends to have gold, red, orange, or yellow undertones.
  • The Sun’s Effects When you’re out in the sun, does your skin turn a golden-brown, or does it burn and turn pink first? If you fit into the former category, you’re warm-toned, while cool tones tend to burn. More colors will be released in the future.

15. What about concealer?
If you prime your whole face with ART Renewal Serum and then ART Light Moisturizer, you will get really good flawless coverage you won’t need concealer. Use an extra dab of foundation on those areas you need a little extra coverage.
16. What about eyelid primer?
Use Best Kept Secret as your eyelid primer. Spray the eye shadow brush with misting spray, then pick up Best Kept Secret eye shadow and apply.
17. I prefer liquid foundation. What do you recommend?
Take 1-2 pumps of ART Light Moisturizer, or a little scoop of SheerLume, ART Intensive Moisturizer or Wolfberry Eye Cream and mix foundation powder to make a liquid/cream foundation.
18. What about price in comparison to other cosmetics?

With my YL order I can add these to my Essential Rewards order, get 25% back (if you’re just starting you will get 10% and work your way up) which is $38.25 back on an order of $153!!!!! So, what does that? Does Target? Ulta? Amazon?
Just something to chew on.
