Traveling with essential oils - An EO freak's accessories


Traveling this summer?✈️πŸš—πŸšŒ You need this! Normally $29.99 and now only $13.99!!!😊 I have several of these in different sizes and colors and they are AWESOME. Once I dropped my oil case onto the garage floor (cement) while it was open, face down, and my πŸ’› sunk, but all those little oil bottles were as snug as a bug in a rug! πŸ˜…This has a "stuffed grid" inside so the bottles are cushioned and snug, but come out when you pull on the bottle top. A tiny cost to protect your oily investment in your best health. πŸ˜‡ I used TWO of these cases in my carryon luggage traveling internationally with no problem, and flying home these were in my checked baggage without incident! http://amzn.to/2s6cOYE

Tip: The bottle top stickers are kind of a must for finding oils easily  (Labels--Item #3939 only $3.00 from YL)


There's also a model that holds 16 bottles and is 4" high so roller balls stand up nicely. Once you click, the seller has a few differet colors available and most have free shipping. http://amzn.to/2toXxWE



This is the size and shape that is in my purse at all times. It's abour 4 inches thick when full and 8 inches long. It's made for (10) 5 or 15 ml bottles. I carry my starter kit oils in here and nestle in a couple of my favorite roll ons and 5 ml's in the open spaces! (hee hee!) I could not find this pattern in this size today, but I did find a cute purple and white dot case http://amzn.to/2ttBpLb and plenty in solid colors http://amzn.to/2tuau1V  in this size. Tip: the bands that hold the bottles in place do cover the oil label, so make sure you get the labels for the tops!! (Item #3939 only $3.00 from YL)


One thing I wish I had done on my trip to Europe is bring more Digize! I brought a 5 ml and it wasn't enough for 7 people and 3 weeks. We made do though, and the best part was all opportunities the trip gave us to reaffirm Young Living oils for my family. My son Sebastian had sushi and then a funny look on his face. I asked what was up and he told me it wasn't sitting well, so I handed him DiGize. His eyes lit up. He took a couple drops under the tongue and then his eyes really lit up, LOL! He said, "I forgot how FAST this works mom. That's amazing." I took effort not to do the "TOLD YA!!" victory dance, but honestly, I was grateful we could continue having fun. TIME is what is so precious!!


This is a great diffuser option for traveling, but I do have a few of these permanently in the house. LOVE this diffuser for it's quality, compact size yet mighty power and because it diffuses over 20 hours. Click here to see the Jasmine video Purchase the Jasmine here: http://amzn.to/2jO1snn (Tip: sometimes this diffuser is available in different colors for less money, so see what works for ya!)

PS---If you are going overseas get plenty of these power adaptors and something like this portable charger. You're welcome. :-)



These are always a best seller. 24 Stainless steel ball topped amber glass roll on bottles that come with an essential oil 'key' (makes removing roller tops and orifices easy) as well as a couple pippettes and 30 labels. Currently $15.99 These are great for traveling with anyblend that requires a carrier. http://amzn.to/2s6zk3l

We've done Bug Off in coconut oil, seasonal blends (which is smart because you may not jive with something in the air where you are going), even 'brown chicken brown cow'. HA!!!

***See how Young Living Frankincense gave my family priceless peace of mind here: How YL Frankincense helped my Dad***


This is the actual diffuser I bring with me whenever I travel. It fits nicely in a toiletry bag (great for storing and carrying accessories, totes classy too) and it's versatile and hella powerful for only $25!!! I have one permanently in my oldest sons room. He could not resist the look! http://amzn.to/2uoiuO6


My two large oil cases had mostly blends in them. I would HIGHLY recommend bringing Acceptance & Gratitude. Acceptance was great to diffuse with NLBS as the trip drew to a close. Especially the night before we left. It did seem to help accept that this awesome experience was coming to a close. Check out the blend we used Gratitude in right here: Spring into Summer diffuser blends

How Young Living frankincense helped my Dad

Hi Anointed By Abba viewers! There are so many ways Young Living essential oils have made my life better! I wanted to share one that's not often mentioned--peace of mind.  What's that worth to you? 



I must mention that the visible booboo on my Dad's arm is NOT what we are talking about. That came by accident from my daughter's fake nails (😳)...(them R dangerous!) If you watch this short video you'll see what Young Living's Frankincense did for him! (and for all of us) I can share that my family enjoyed our time together so much more because of our oils. 

It's no secret that Frankincense is great for skin, but we were so impressed with what we were able to see with our own eyes, I felt a personal responsibility to share with anyone who'd like to hear the information. Of course we'd never claim to diagnose, treat or cure anything, and implore you to do your own research.

There's an important distinction between Frankincense that we at Young Living harvest from Oman and from other Frankincense out there...efficacy. Getting quality frankincense is NOT easy. This is one of the most faked oils out there! Only frankincense steam distilled from the resin of the boswelia tree, grown in THAT specific region of the world, has the strength to assist the skin in being it's healthiest. Other companies may offer something that smells similar or claim to be pure or organic...but nobody cares like Young Living does. In my opinion, anything besides Young Living is a waste of money.

Taking spring into summer - diffuser blends

WELL! In Arizona, the kids got out of school at the end of MAY and we didn't leave time to feel any end of school year emotions before we embarked on a trip of a lifetime. My husband planned a trip to bring his Dad back to the country his family emigrated from--Poland! And boy, was it awesome. We brought the whole family and my Dad, too. I'm still only partway through posting the pictures on our Instagram...


Since returning we have a brand new 11 year old daughter in the house and our 13 and 16 year old boys will both become a year older soon, too. Some posts recently covered how we are loving that #Joybomb over here!

Now that we have a lull in the schedule there's a sense of relief as well as a little bit of being... well, bummed out! It's my job as homemaker to help guide 'the people' (that's what I call my family) toward the bazillions of things we have to be grateful for. The official temperatures in Phoenix were probably less than 120 degrees Farenheit but I got a couple 124's and a 127 on my car thermometer, so YEAH. It's been HOT. Like a heat you can't imagine...  And back to that role I have as homemaker!!!

So this is what we're diffusing today. Breathing in a touch of Peppermint always helps me feel cooler, and there will be some kids helping mom with chores in a minute - with a smile!

Yeppp! I learned from Tony Robbins that everything good in life begins with gratitude. It is the antidote to pretty much every negative emotion on the planet, so it's good practice to reflect on all those things in your life there are to be grateful for. 


 This blend smells ahMAZING, folks. You will love. I've diffused this during the day as well as at night time, so I could fall asleep "counting my blessings instead of sheep!" :-) The Young Living blend, Gratitude is designed to help us embrace the blessings in life. The aroma invites 'feelings of emotional and spiritual progress' and those are guests I believe I'd like to have "Come on in!"



This one is interesting...  Now and then I get requests to create blends (which i LOVE to do!) I have a Young Living 'cousin', Shelbi, who asked me if I would create a diffuser blend that smelled like her grandfather's pipe!!! Different, huh?! Here's what we came up with... Very relaxing actually.


This is Shebi's creation, right here. She got me interested in the patchouli/lime combo and came up with the name, too! :-)
 




And this one, because....YUMTASTICNESS!!!


This is too cute! Throwing this one in here so when I whip this post out next year, we can try an Easter Peeps diffuser blend!!


Even though it feels like summer started a while ago here in AZ we're just a couple days into the season. Hard to believe. And school will be starting before I know it. Take this advice: Savor summer!!!!
