Please let this be a normal field trip. As a teacher, field trip days are tiring. But it’s worse when it’s a day field trip to Orlando. Waking up at 4:30 to be at school by 5:30 is no joke. Definitely needed some #enrgeeessentialoil to get myself up and going today. The citrus smell is amazing for giving you that boost of energy you need. #oilyteacher #essentialoils #younglivingessentialoils #teacherswhooil

🍋L E M O N🍋 One of the underrated gems in the starter kit - it does so much more than act as a natural goo-b-gone! Here are some of my favorite ways to put this little bottle to use: +Diffuse for an uplifting and energizing aroma +Add a drop or two in pancake batter and stir in some blueberries +Put a couple drops to a big glass of water first thing in the morning to gently detoxify & boost my immune system +Added into my nightly moisturizing serum to reduce the appearance of acne and scars (careful not to put on lemon eo before going into to the sun - look up photosensitivity if you're curious) +Preserve cut up fruits and veggies by soaking them in a bowl of water with a few drops of lemon eo +Mix with raven or eucalyptus in the diffuser to settle a cough +Add to a spray bottle with water and other oils that support hair (hi geranium and ylang ylang) and top off with a little witch hazel and water. Spray on hair to get a lighter summer shade +Drop 4-5 drops on a cotton ball and put your linen closet for fresh smelling sheets and towels +Added to thieves cleaning spray to up the disinfecting and degreasing power #essentialoils #ylessentialoils #yleo #youngliving #myoilyday #oilseveryday #oilyteacher #specialeducator #nontoxicliving #chemicalfree #plantbased #poweredbyplants #naturalliving #healthandwellness #holistichealth #lemon #summer #skinsupport #skincare #immuneboost #colorado

We are working on making our own board games for an end of the year activity. There is so much critical thinking, problem solving, and fine motor involved.

Today’s ‘we need to get stuff done blend!’ It’s testing week so I have my ‘go to’ blend Clarity in the diffuser with some lavendar for any stressed out kiddos (or teacher 🤪). I am always motivated when I diffuse Clarity let’s hope it helps the kids today too! 🤞🤞🤞
HORMONES//love them or hate them? either way they run👏🏼the👏🏼show. mood, energy, sleep, skin, cycle, libido, focus, emotions, bodily functions, and on and on and on. I’m working with @wildwintergreen to bring an incredible amount of information to women and men alike. we’re busting myths and bringing together pieces of the hormone puzzle that not too long ago was brand new to us. if you’re confused or interested or curious—if you have hormones, this is for you. three days of conversation and content, for members and nonmembers alike. did I mention free? yup. because we love you and you’re worth it. want in? just say the word.
Great for me! Great for the babe! And getting me into that work grind! It’s been hard to focus as school as it is winding down (for us, winding up to end). This is our busiest, nonstop time of the year. So, slathering some valor all over and getting to it. Bring on the end of the year and all its joys and all its frustrations! Here’s to a strong finish! 💪🏻 ▫️▫️▫️ #schoolteacher #thenecessities #endoftheyear #courageoil #empowering #smellssogood #naturalperfume #crunchymomma #oilymom #oilywife #oilyteacher #oilyfamily #oilylife #bathinginoils #sanity #livingwithabundance #flourishin2019
Hey Everyone! In this video I’m discussing how I made a personalized roller with a bottle of dwindling White Angelica Oil. I add some of my fav #EmotionalSupport oils and pop an #AromaGlideRollerTop on there. So easy to do! #yleo #seedtoseal #nontoxic #oilylife #oily #youngliving #younglivingeo #essentialoils #oilylifestyle #millennialhippie #hippiemillennial #essentialoillover #nontoxicliving #wellnessjourney #oilyteacher #oilyteachertribe #unapologeticallyoily #oilyhome #oilylife #whiteangelica #stressaway #joy #grapefruit #ylangylang #avocadooil
CHRONIC STRESS. Anyone?! 😉 Last week I learned from @drmelissawenrich all about hormone support. One of the main disruptors of hormones is linked to stress! As a teacher, stress is without question going to come with the job description (as with so many other jobs and aspects of life). This school year I’ve worked really hard to manage my stress. It’s not something I can avoid, so I can do what I can to manage it! . . For our hormones to be balanced, we have to start with balancing cortisol, the main hormone involved in flight or fight response, blood-glucose concentration, and decreased progesterone levels (yup, when cortisol levels are high, this hormone will decrease!). So this year I’ve been using Valor and Stress Away often throughout the day when I’m just feeling out of control. Literally known to reduce cortisol levels! 💪🏼So, of you’re worried about stress... grab these oils to start with! Such great relief and one step toward balancing out your hormones! ❤️ . . #younglivingessentialoils #younglivingeo #yleo #essentialoils #oils #healthyliving #wellness #nontoxicliving #oilylife #naturalliving #ihavemyoilsnowwhat #dfwmom #momlife #teachersofinstagram #mompreneur #workingmom #oilyteacher #oilyblogger #teacherlife #smallbusiness #kariraepresets #vegan #stress #keepcalm #hormonebalance #teachersofthegram #selfcare

I try to be low-waste in my everyday life and my classroom is no different. I have #ThievesHouseholdCleaner in a glass bottle with #ThievesEO and #PurificationEO and a reusable rag. I have about three of these I use all week. At the end of the week, I bring them home and wash in extremely hot water with detergent and a half-capful of #thieveshouseholdcleaner . In this way I minimize the waste and am still able to deep clean my classroom without the harsh chemicals of more mainstream cleaners. #Iteach #yleo #seedtoseal #nontoxic #oilylife #oily #youngliving #younglivingeo #essentialoils #knowbetterdobetter #oilylifestyle #diffuserblend #millennialhippie #hippiemillennial #essentialoillover #nontoxicliving #oilyteacher #oilyteachertribe #unapologeticallyoily #oilyhome #oilylife #lowwaste #lowwastelifestyle #iteachsped
Switching to non-toxic products can feel overwhelming and expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. It might feel like you need to throw out all of the toxic products and replace them with clean alternatives all at once, but that’s not the case. Instead, take it one step and one product at a time. I started in our laundry room with dryer sheets. When we ran out of them, instead of buying more I replaced them with dryer balls. When I got to the last Clorox wipe, I started using Thieves cleaner. Slowly, one product at a time, I replaced our toxic products with plant-based and clean alternatives. I’m still working on switching some things like shampoo + make-up. It’s a slow process. It doesn’t happen overnight. Pick one product to start with and slowly switch, one step at a time.
R E P E A T • after me. I am deserving and worthy. Say it again and again and again. Say it until you believe it. Until you see your worth. Ladies, this morning I was scrolling through my feed, sipping on my coffee and the amount of negative self talk on here is concerning, for real. Would you talk to your best friend, your siblings, your kiddos, your momma the way you talk to yourself? I bet not. Enough is enough ladies. Love yourself. Love the journey. Cut the BS out of your life and start living. It is not healthy to talk to yourself in such a way beautiful. The next time you start to get down on your self go stand in front of the mirror and say “I am deserving and worthy” again and again and again. Because you are. You are deserving and worthy of a beautiful abundant life and you’re in control of making that a reality 🙏🏼 tag a friend who could use this message this morning below 💕

I know many people out there have side hustles or businesses they may run. I never ever in a million years thought I would start my own biz. I started by just enjoying the oils and wanting a solution for our family’s health (and a way to get rid of plug-ins!). I enjoyed my oils for four years until a friend leaned in and saw potential in me. 😊 She said, “Girl, you could totally do this! It’s just loving on people!” I wasn’t sure, but a spark was lit and I felt excited, so I ran with it (even though I didn’t know all the answers). ❤️Now, I have an amazing community of people that lift each other up. This business has given me a chance to go beyond my comfort zone and become friends with so many. It’s given me a chance to peel off the layers of who I am so I can grow. I get to connect with others that are looking for solutions to all the things they go through daily. It’s for our family, and it’s just too much fun along the way too! . . Tonight our team is giving a sneak peek of what this thing looks like (one big virtual party). Maybe you’ve got some big dreams to do amazing things with your family. Or maybe you just want to get your oils paid for because you deeply desire to take your health into your own hands. Message me, I’d love to send you a link to listen in (or playback if you’re busy tonight!). And let’s be real—we all need some friends to hang with! I’d love to hang with you and do this thing together! 😘 . . #younglivingessentialoils #younglivingeo #yleo #essentialoils #oils #healthyliving #wellness #nontoxicliving #imanoilymama #oilylife #naturalliving #ihavemyoilsnowwhat #oilylifemadesimple #dfwmom #momlife #ditchandswitch #greenliving #holistichealth #myoilyday #kariraepresets #teachersofinstagram #mompreneur #monthlybox #nontoxicbeauty #workingmom #oilyteacher #oilyblogger #nontoxicmakeup #kariraepresets #thisismlm #bizowner
anthropolgie candle diffuser blend // 🌸 i diffused this blend this weekend and it TOTALLY smells like the beloved capri blue candle that’s always burning in anthro! // 2 drops each: + geranium (floral) + grapefruit (citrus) + idaho blue spruce (woodsy) you can recreate this using the general recipe above, not necessarily with those exact oils! 🌸 i FINALLY threw out the rest of my candles this month. i knew that traditional candles release paraffin, a toxic byproduct of petroleum, into the air so i always bought soy ones. what i totally blanked on was the fact that they still used artificial fragrance... toxic. the only safe alternative truly is diffusing essential oils. they smell just as a good and they’re actually benefitting our bodies! it feels so much better to know that i’m keeping my home and family as healthy as possible. 💕 so ditch those toxic candles now, ladies!!
The house is a mess, laundry is piling up and it is noon and people are still in their jammies, but I am savoring every minute with this cutie! The countdown to summer is on- 12 more days of school and then lazy mornings don’t have to wait for the weekend! #teacherlife #teachermom #oilyteacher #oilymama #sundayvibes #teachermomlife #teachermommy #thedishescanwait #lazysunday

Q U A L I T Y • something that has becoming increasingly important to us over the past year. 🛑 Stop and think about it Do you really know what is in the beauty and cleaning products you buy? Do you know that many things within these products are not regulated? Do you know that you don’t need to break the bank to get quality, plant based products? I am so glad that we were introduced to young living a year ago. With a baby on the way it’s a no brainer that we will use the Seedlings line on her. We use their non-toxic products on ourselves, why wouldn’t we for her too? They are . . . 1️⃣ Dermatologist tested 2️⃣ Hyperallergenic 3️⃣ Formulated without harsh chemicals 4️⃣ Plant based and so much more. We’ve ditched so many toxic products over the past year and switched to products we know are safe for all the members of our family. The peace of mind that comes with that is 🙏🏼 worth it’s weight in gold. I didn’t think we’d ever be in a space that affording these products would work but it is NOT expensive. In fact, we are saving on our cleaning products! What is one product you’d like to ‘ditch and switch’ at home?
Happy Saturday! Sharing essential oil love @kerncountymuseum ‘s Kidsfest. . .

These are my freebies that I got this month simply by being on Essential Rewards! Instead of buying things at target that I know are filled with chemicals I have made a conscious decision to swap them out for safer, non-toxic ones from Young Living and put them in my monthly wellness box. Best part is that arrives on my doorstep and I can customize it each month. #younglivingessentialoils #essentialoilsforthewin #lavender #geranium #thievestoothpaste #patchouli #charcoalbarsoap #essentialrewards #wellness #knowbetterdobetter #nontoxicliving #yleo #oilymama #oilyteacher #teacherlife #momofgirls
My bestie @juniperandstars gifted me this amazing blend. It came at such an important time! I have so many things going on that I have been turning to this oil to support the big emotions I’ve been feeling lately.

Oily Tips // Always keep water near your diffuser. It makes for easier refills which makes you more likely to use your oils. // Keep your oils out where you can see them. Create little oily corners in your home that are within your eye line. If they are hidden away, you’re more likely to forget about them. // Make rollers! Rollers are the easiest + most convenient way to use your oils + make them last longer. // Be creative + listen to your body. You will find yourself craving certain oils. When that happens, listen. Your body knows what it needs. // Most importantly, have fun! Essential oils are an amazing tool that can help support you + your family on your wellness journey. Enjoy the journey!

Giving me all the stomach support today! My tummy has just not been feeling good this week. Going to get some pho for lunch but this is holding me over. 🌱 DiGize is exactly what it sounds like... digestion. A blend of tarragon, ginger, peppermint, juniper, fennel, lemongrass, anise, and patchouli; it offers a potent scent and digestive support. Although it is potent it helps me in my stomach cramps. #oilyteacher #oilylifestyle #yleo #oilytribe #oilyteachertribe
It's a gloomy and drizzly Friday here in the mountains ☔ I'll be rolling on one my my favorite blends to brighten things up - JOY! Joy is a blend of some seriously happy oils like bergamot + geranium + jasmine + lemon + ylang ylang + rose 😍 Whenever I put this on, I set an intention to invite joy into every moment. Fun fact: this oil came in my first starter kit over 5 years ago! I thought it smelled like granny perfume when I first got it, but I quickly fell in lurve with it. #essentialoils #ylessentialoils #yleo #youngliving #emotionalsupport #oilyteacher #specialeducator #myoilyday #joy #oilseveryday #naturalliving #toxicfree #plantbased #poweredbyplants #healthandwellness #holistichealth

On most days, I run on dry shampoo, a smoothie, and oils. Did a DIY for my own dry shampoo and I'm loving it. Added geranium, lavender, and ylang ylang - not only does it smell great, it's also supporting the health of my hair and scalp.

DIY Dry Shampoo // Anyone else running on coffee + dry shampoo?? We’re in the final days of the school year, and I am struggling. Thank goodness for my trusty side kicks, coffee + dry shampoo! // I recently switched from using my tried + true store bought dry shampoo to using this homemade version. Many of the dry shampoos that you can find in the stores contain ingredients that can be harmful to us, such as talc. Those chemicals are immediately absorbed into our scalp after application and can cause future scalp + health problems. // I got this recipe for dry shampoo from @nestingwell and I love it! It works + I know exactly what’s in it. What could be better?

This is my teacher survival kit. My top oils to get me through the day as a Kindergarten teacher! We only have 7 days left but I’m still consistently using these three oils and looking forward to SUMMER! •Stress Away for all the emotional support. Do I really need to explain more than that? 🤣 • Thieves because, well, germs. Gotta help my immune system however I can! • Lavender in my classroom diffuser because it’s calming and with only a few days left, we ALL need this! What oils do you always have with you?
EXCITING THINGS ARE HAPPENING!!! I know this photo is not aesthetically pleasing. It’s not an instagram perfect classroom. It’s probably confusing. It’s a literal construction site. . BUT to me this is hope. This is the start of something great for my students. This is my first look at my new classroom for next year. New school, bigger classroom, more break spaces, more opportunities. I can’t wait for this journey, and I can’t wait to fill this room with new memories with my littles!! . . . . . #spedsquad #iambendlapineschools #tamarackprogram #northstarbend #bendteacher #teachersofinstagram #iteachtoo #oilyteacher #sped #spedteacher #specialeducation #teachersfollowteachers #tcfeatureme #ebdteacher #behaviorteacher #traumainformed #mentalhealth #weteachsped #teacherlove #happyteacher #specialeducationteacher #teacherspayteachers #meettheteacher #oregonteacher #oregonteachers
When one person shows up to your HIIT class, you convince them to stay and you work out together! 💪🏼 Laura and I kicked the butt of the full body workout I had planned 🏋🏽♀️ Now I really have to rehydrate... and foam roll my muscles 😅
I added a DIY bath soak to the gift bag for teacher appreciate week. I’m so grateful for Luca’s sweet teachers and I couldn’t wait to make these for them! P.S there are so many different recipes... to play it safe I just added lavender for them. But depending on goals/preferred smells ya can make many different mixes!
You down with LLP, yeah you know me! 😎 If you're like me, we want to enjoy the sunshine and a warm spring breeze without feeling sick. Today we can open the windows again! Do you open your windows? For seasonal relief, I've been applying a roller of this LLP blend behind the ears and on the bridge of the noses. We love that no OTC purchases are needed Lmk if you'd like to try it out! I can make you up a sample to try 🤲
Happy Wednesday, friends! This past weekend I ventured home for my birthday/Mother’s Day weekend and brought along my diffuser and oils. I can’t sleep without them now!

Deep Relief // I am never without my Deep Relief roller. It has never let me down in a time of need. I suffer from frequent headaches ( #teacherlife ), but as long as I have this roller I’ll be just fine. I apply it to the nape of my neck and my temples and let the cooling sensation soothe my aches + pains. This roller will also make any skeptic a believer.
sleep and kids🤘🏼I don’t have any, but I know those precious little monsters sleep on their own schedules—my team is here to offer you a delayed mother’s day gift sleepy mamas//on facebook spilling all the sleep secrets for kids of all ages tonight. want in? lemme know!
STARTER KIT OIL: Stress Away 💚 . . Teachers are needing a lot of this one lately 🤪 It’s typically described as a vacation in a bottle 🏝 with the oils: Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood, Ocotea, Lavender and Vanilla. . . While the Lime is uplifting and perfect for all of those exhausted teachers 🙋♀️, Lavender and Cedarwood are calming #patience 🙃 Copaiba is easily a favorite—helping me with my tense muscles that tend to be a natural side effect of stress and exhaustion. . . This oil is at the bottom of your kit, so don’t miss it! You can put a roller top right on it and wear it neat on your skin as a perfume! And don’t forget to take those slow deep breaths with the smell fresh on your skin 😌 . . Combine Stress Away with Lavender and diffuse it next to you at work or at night for sleep support, or my FAVORITE—treat yourself with this combo in a warm bath with some Epsom salts 🥰👌 . . I know Teacher Appreciation Week just passed, but we could use alllllll the love we can get! Make your son/daughter’s teacher a roller with: Stress Away, Frankincense, Lavender, and Valor for a magical combination (all of these oils come in the Starter Kit 🙌) . . Who are you going to give some Stress Away to?
Magic in a bottle! ✨ On top of trying to plan everything for next year, my lead teacher is in parent meetings galore which means I have the kids all to myself. This past month has been crazy but the Lord is good and my kids are angels so I can’t complain too much! Also, stress away. Need I say more?
Lavender Lip Scrub // I made this lip scrub this weekend after finding the recipe on my team’s Facebook group, and y’all... I love it! It was so simple to make, and it left my lips feeling silky soft. I applied it to my lips and let it sit for a couple minutes for extra nourishment. If your lips are dry + chapped like mine, you should definitely give this a try!
::OILY EVENT ALERT:: Hey y’all. I’m hosting an #OilsAfterDark Class at my home on May 24th at 7:30pm using the @lucylibido class and materials! I am SO excited for this class and the laughter and connection that’s gonna happen 💜 If you are local to the Laurel, MD, Baltimore and/ DC area I’d love to have you! PM for location. See you soon! #TheresAnOilForThat
Lash Serum // I’ve been using this serum for the past few weeks, and I am loving it! It’s safe, non-toxic, and it works! // To make your own, add 2 drops each of Lavender, Cedarwood, + Rosemary. Top with castor oil. (I used jojoba oil for this batch because it’s what I had on hand, but castor oil is like food for your lashes so it’s preferred.) Apply to the tips of your lashes before bed each night.
We're at the point in the year where the only pencils left are the ones that have been chewed on or destroyed and the focus oils are on repeat in the classroom diffuser. My favorite oils to use in my classroom to help kids focus are Clarity, Peppermint + Rosemary, or Vetiver + Cedarwood. #essentialoils #ylessentialoils #yleo #youngliving #myoilyday #oilyteacher #specialeducator #focus #productivity #middleschool #survivalmode

When I was in high school and I could drive myself to the store, I remember driving there multiple times a month trying to find the best color eye shadow. I would buy a palette, only to take it home and hate it. And go back to buy another one. (But let’s be real, the early 2000s didn’t have much to offer us in the eye shadow department!) Love the simplicity of this palette! Simple or Smokey, I’m covered! And goes well with all skin tones! And CLEAN, y’all! And it’s on sale this week, 25% off along with many other @savvyminerals items! ❤️❤️ . . seedtoseal #younglivingessentialoils #younglivingeo #yleo #essentialoils #oils #healthyliving #wellness #nontoxicliving #imanoilymama #oilylife #naturalliving #ihavemyoilsnowwhat #oilylifemadesimple #dfwmom #momlife #ditchandswitch #greenliving #holistichealth #myoilyday #kariraepresets #teachersofinstagram #mompreneur #monthlybox #nontoxicbeauty #workingmom #oilyteacher #oilyblogger #nontoxicmakeup #kariraepresets
Northern Lights Black Spruce // This is one of my top 5 favorite oils outside of the starter kit. I love masculine scents, and this one hits the spot for me. I decided to add it to my monthly wellness order after hearing @girlmom_2 rave about it many times, and man... was she right! If you’re a lover of masculine + woodsy scents, give this little guy a try. You will not be disappointed!

Being your mama is my favorite thing! You and your daddy are my whole world, and I am so grateful to both of you for making me a mom. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there!
F I R S T S • and lasts, making me an emotional hormonal mess over here. I’ve shared on my stories some thoughts on Mother’s Day by those who have said it much more eloquently than I ever could. I just about lost it when my husband handed me this beautiful bouquet this afternoon for my ‘first mother’s day’. So many lessons have been learned from all the moms in my life, starting with my own and trickling down to all my friends moms who we called mom when we were kids, my students who have accidentally been calling me mom for years (and are quick to come running when they need XYZ) and so many other amazing role models who have showed me that love, not blood makes a mom. Cheers to all of the strong women out there who make the world go round, this ones for you 💛
I’ll leave this right here, in case your kids didn’t get the memo that it’s Mother’s Day and of all days that today they should listen and behave ❤️ . . #seedtoseal #younglivingessentialoils #younglivingeo #yleo #essentialoils #oils #healthyliving #wellness #nontoxicliving #imanoilymama #oilylife #naturalliving #ihavemyoilsnowwhat #dfwmom #momlife #ditchandswitch #greenliving #holistichealth #teachersofinstagram #mompreneur #diffuserblends #workingmom #oilyteacher #oilyblogger #selfcare #keepcalm #teacherlife #diffuserblends #oilandglassbook

I love using these mini droppers for the thicker oils, such as vetiver. It makes it so much easier to add the oil into the diffuser without having to wait forever! These mini droppers are also perfect when traveling- I fill mine up with my glow serum ✨ . . . . #youngliving #younglivingessentialoils #yleo #essentialrewards #myoilyday #oilytribe #oilyteacher #essentialoils #oilygang #oilymusthaves #dropper #essentialoildroppers #whimsyandwellness #gold
Diffusing these two oils today so that the house smells fresh and clean while my husbands deals with a little stomach bug! The peppermint will help with his nausea while the thieves will help clean the air from bacteria 🌿 Have any question about oils? Interested in jumping in with oils? There are tons of options for getting started and I would be happy to help you along the way!
Yesterday was gonna be one of those cute days where daddy took one boy and I took the other and we had fun little day dates with them. Well, kinda. It was exhausting. Not treacherous, just exhausting. Grayson didn’t want to eat much and was very clingy (I think it was his teeth)—but I did enjoy all the extra snuggles. By the end of the day, I felt like jello! 🙃 Needless to say, oils to the rescue (for the boys, and for me!) . . All the tired mommas raise your hands! 🙌🏼 To those in all stages of mommahood (and those grieving loss and waiting to arrive), you are doing an awesome job. It’s day by day, and lots of grace! And it’s good makeup that can cover up you’re exhaustion, too. 😘😉 Happy Mother’s Day friends! . . #seedtoseal #younglivingessentialoils #younglivingeo #yleo #essentialoils #oils #healthyliving #wellness #nontoxicliving #imanoilymama #oilylife #naturalliving #ihavemyoilsnowwhat #oilylifemadesimple #dfwmom #momlife #ditchandswitch #greenliving #holistichealth #myoilyday #kariraepresets #teachersofinstagram #mompreneur #monthlybox #nontoxicbeauty #workingmom #oilyteacher #oilyblogger #nontoxicmakeup #kariraepresets
