Raindrop Technique

Raindrop Technique
Let's talk about the Raindrop Technique massage. it's been apart of my family's health regimen for many years now. 

When I say it's been a game-changer for my family, I mean I cannot imagine what our health would be like without it. The Raindrop has pulled us out of some serious health trials. But I also use it when it's just been a rough day or someone needs extra emotional and physical support! It's a beautiful way to support wellness.

You are going to LOVE it!!


Grab your Raindrop Kit through your account. If it is out of stock you can order each item individually to build your own kit, but don't worry, the kit will come back in stock soon. It's just super popular!!

Print this cheat sheet and let me know what you think!

Side note: I've included a quick Raindrop Roller Blend. Mary Young is not a fan of this! I happen to agree with her. The roller bottle blend is FABULOUS support but will not do the exact same thing that layering the oils individually does. So just keep that in mind. :) Enjoy both, but they are different.

Thieves Dish Soap

Thieves Dish Soap
Let’s talk about diluting our beloved Thieves Dish Soap! 

 If you know me, you know I never run out of this stuff. It is one of my very favorite products. I love that when I’m cleaning my family’s dishes, I know that I’m not letting any nasty chemicals seep onto our dishes that could cause issues in our bodies. PLUS I know that it’s perfectly safe for my kiddos to use, so I have absolutely no problem asking my littles to do dishes. My house is getting clean, and their little immune systems are being boosted. 
Can you say “Mom Win”?!

Thieve Dish Soap Dilution

When you run out of Thieves dish soap, don’t be so quick to through the bottle out! 
Keep that bad boy and recycle for a later use.

What You’ll Need:
  • One bottle of thieves soap concentrate
  • Two empty bottles of thieves dish soap
  • Baking Soda
  • A funky dance song!

  1. Evenly distribute your thieves soap concentrate among the three soap bottles. Eyeball it. 
  2. Add a tablespoon of baking soda into each of the three bottles
  3. Fill the bottles the rest of the way with WARM water. This is important as you need it to dissolve the baking soda.
  4. Put the caps back on and shake well to your funky dance song!
And there you have it! Super simple. Doesn’t take more than 5 minutes and by the end of it, you’ve tripled your soap supply! 
Happy Cleaning!


Death by Pollen

Death by Pollen
Ok, so it’s no joke that this pesky yellow dust that has decided to grace our lives is more like the plague than anything. I get it. It’s spring and we’re going to get flowers and green trees out of this, but I mean COME ON. The stuff is everywhere and while I wish my life right now were more along the lines of “Death by Chocolate”, let’s be real, it’s more like death by pollen.

            Now, today I am not going to talk about different ways certain nutritional changes could affect the way our bodies react to certain things. That is another post for another time. Today, I want to reach those people in the midst of their wellness journey that find themselves traveling down the road only to be assaulted by the pollen-palooza of the year. Stuffy sinuses, runny noses, and swollen eyes all make an appearance in the pollen-parade. Sucker Punch? Maybe.

            Hang in there, Soldier. There’s an oil for that.  If you need new artillery for battle, Young Living has got you COVERED. Let’s talk about some of my favorite fortifying weapons, LLP.

When in doubt, just remember LLP: Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint.  

  • Lavender: lavender is my favorite first weapon of choice. As soon as my kids start showing puffy eyes or runny noses, we take a drop of lavender vitality internally. It also works well to apply lavender topically by either swiping a drop into (or under) your nose as well as putting a drop on the inside of your cheek. This oil is DEFINITELY one you want this season.
  • Lemon: lemon is great for topical use if you are one more prone to skin irritation this season. Just remember it’s photosensitive and dilute if needed!
  • Peppermint: there are so many things to say about peppermint. Peppermint purifies and invigorates. It’s great to diffuse—I actually have lavender, lemon, and peppermint diffusing right now—and does well to filtrate all the nasty things that could be circulating in your home right now.

It’s no joke these oils by themselves are the kind of butt-kicking, karate-chopping, jedi-ninjas you want on your team for combat. HOWEVER, the reason why they are presented here as a group is, when used together, they are like The Three Amigos taking care of business. Take three drops of each internally every day this season to help better support your respiratory system in its fight to ward off those icky pollutants.

Finally friends, I do want to clear: a wellness journey is NOT about quick fixes. It’s a lifestyle, and no singular change you make will suddenly rid you of ever feeling bad again. My prayer is that you would see the value and the freedom that comes with living a toxin free life. God did not create this world with toxins in it. Before man fell, we had a perfect relationship with God, people, and this physical world. After the fall, the earth became polluted and our right relationship not only to God but to the physical world was broken. So while you’re fighting navigating itchy eyes and runny noses this season, think about how they point to the fact that we need a savior. Something is not right with this world, and even our bodies BEG for that relationship to be mended. So, seek the Lord, diffuse some oils, and wait expectantly for the day that relationship is restored to its fullest glory.

Let's Cuddle Up

Let's Cuddle Up
            Happy Valentine’s day to all my favorite oily lovers out there! If I’m being honest, I set out to write this article as a kind of extension to the Oils and Romance class I taught last week, to help better answer some questions I received. Now, although it is the day of LOVE and I hope you all get a little freaky with your husbands’ tonight, I’m going to go a little off road and talk about my daily wellness routine.

            The reason I talk about this is because of a conversation I had with a dear friend this week. Because she travels often for work, she came to me asking for advice to help boost overall energy during the day, as well as increase rest and relaxation in the evenings. Her words to me were, “Terri, this past week has been packed out. I am gone 5a to 6p every day. I barely have time to see my husband expect on the weekends, and on the evenings I do get to see him I am either too tired to function, or too stressed to be able to fully unwind and give him all the attention I so desire to give him. In other words—HELP.”

            Sometimes, we women have the tendency to burn the candle at both ends, which it not only damaging to ourselves, but even more so damaging to the people we hold dearest. If you find yourself in a similar situation, KEEP READING, if this isn’t you—and you’re some kind of perfect fairytale unicorn—still keep reading. 
I start each day off with a capsule combo on my favorite of immune and energy boosting oils:

1.    Endoflex: This blend amplifies metabolism and vitality and creates a hormone balance. (Can also apply to thyroid, lower back, kidneys, glandular areas or all over feet. Diffuse!). Hello energy boost!
2.    Peppermint: Peppermint is a STIMULANT. It’s fresh and crisp smell creates an environment of focus, and when taken internally can help with immune functions. 
3.    Copaiba: This oil is great for a variety of things. Teething babies, immunity, bone density, the works! The cool thing about Copaiba is that, when paired with other oils, it actually pushes those other oils to work harder! How cool is that?

Paired with these rock star oils, I take a shot of Ningxia Red. Young Living NingXia Red benefits include support for energy levels, normal cellular function, and whole-body and normal eye health. A daily shot of 2–4 ounces helps support overall wellness with powerful antioxidants. Drink by itself, put in smoothies, give it to your kids, the works! I would encourage everyone looking for a little extra ZING in their life—be faithful to your Ningxia!
 I pair all of these with Master Formula. “Master Formula™ is a comprehensive daily supplement that includes a wide range of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other food-based nutrients to naturally support general health and well-being for the body.” One of the most important things about this product is it’s loaded with B vitamins! B vitamins are essential to energy and focus—especially B9 and B12. Don’t believe me? Do a quick search for yourself and see what all your body needs for mental clarity!

            So many of us forget the importance of sleep. Seriously, sleep is critical for your body to actually be able to heal itself. When you are asleep, your body turns off all “unnecessary” functions and makes it to where your body’s sole purpose is repair. If you are having trouble unwinding, I would recommend diffusing Peace and Calming. I like to have Peace and Calming diffusing before my husband gets home in the evening to create a more of a haven feeling in our home. 

Before bed, Sensation oil is our best friend. You heard me right. Sensation™ combines pure Ylang Ylang, Coriander, and other essential oils to encourage feelings of love and affection when diffused. We all know we feel more relaxed when we feel loved. Who wouldn’t want that before bed?! Plus, your chances of getting lucky go WAY up--it’s a win for you, a win for him, and everyone sleeps better for it. 
Diffuse the heck out of that sucker to ignite a warm environment in the bedroom and trust me, Mr. Man will thank you for it. 

            Finally, I would encourage my friend in need of both energy and rest, Scripture says.  “Come to me, all who are weary, and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28). The truth of the matter is, you can have the perfect health routine but at the end of the day, true, soul restorative rest comes in the arms of our Father. He wants to LAVISH you, so find comfort in the arms of our Comforter and you will experience rest, energy, and abundance like never-before.
