I love motivational videos and I figured those of you who read this blog probably enjoy watching them as well.

I came across two great ones last week on Facebook and wanted to share them with you.

Would you like to know how to reach your Highest Potential?

I think many people would like to be at the top of their game and I’m no exception!

There are the obvious things you can do such as setting goals, writing them down, making a vision board and most importantly taking action!

I have also started using two of Young Living’s oil blends: Abundance and Highest Potential to help me achieve my goals and the life of abundance I aspire to.

Young Living’s Highest Potential essential oil blend is “an exotic blend designed to increase your capacity to achieve your highest potential. It combines the uplifting and inspirational qualities of Australian Blue with the power of Gathering to help bring greater unity of purpose. Jasmine is added to enhance self-confidence, while ylang ylang calms, soothes, and harmonizes.”

Young Living’s Abundance essential oil blend is created to enhance the frequency of the harmonic magnetic energy field that surrounds us. This higher frequency creates what is called “the law of attraction,” which refers to the things we attract to ourselves. Abundance opens us to a wealth of possibilities.

I like to use the two of these oils together, especially when I am in need of a little extra push to really go for my goals ready to move forward with them in a big way.

Both oils are wonderful for diffusing. I especially like to apply them topically. Not everyone enjoys the aroma of these oils, but I love them, especially Highest Potential. I have also found them great for helping with anxiety and depression.

My protocol starts with placing a drop of Highest Potential in the palm of my hand. I then take my index finger and dab it in the oil, then to my heart, wrists and back of my neck (where the brain stem is located), finishing with my third eye (middle of forehead).

With Abundance, I place the drop in my palm, then dab it over my heart before rubbing my palms together in a circular motion three times. I then proceed to “washing” myself over my hair, head, shoulders and body. I apply the Abundance almost like I am placing a shield over my entire body if that makes sense.

I used this protocol on my husband when he was actively looking for a new direction in his work. It was so successful for him, he took my bottle of Abundance with him when he had to go out of town to start! Now I need two bottles!

If you have not tried these two amazing oils, I highly recommend them!

Everyone should reach their Highest Potential and live the Abundant life God wants for them!

If you are interested in obtaining these oils for yourself, you may do so in my Essential Oil store.

However, I HIGHLY recommend you get a wholesale membership with Young Living and get these oils at a great discount. You can get a lifetime wholesale membership for as little as $40 and you never have to purchase another item or sell anything!

In our journey to living a healthier, more abundant life, many of us are buying only organic foods for ourselves and our families. However, many people are unable to buy all organic all of the time.

One of the vegetables I always make sure is organic are potatoes. And here’s why!

Dr. Oz listed them on his website along with 6 other foods you should always buy from the organic section of the store. Here is his list of 7:

Root Vegetable: Potatoes
Regular potatoes that are grown above ground are sprayed with pesticides, and the soil they’re grown in is treated with fungicide. By buying organic varieties, you avoid both these threats. In case you can’t find organic potatoes, try sweet potatoes; they are usually grown with less pesticides overall. Organic potatoes cost about $1.49 per pound at grocery stores.

Produce: Peppers and Celery
Both veggies react to pesticides in the same way: like a sponge, absorbing the chemicals through the skin. Because of this, you won’t be able to reduce chemical ingestion by washing or peeling them. Always choose the organic variety. Organic peppers and celery cost between $3.99 and $6.99 per pound at grocery stores.

Leafy Greens: Lettuce, Spinach and Collard Greens
Usually these plants are doused in pesticides to ward off insects. Organic growers use methods like non-toxic repellents to keep these vegetables free of pests. Organic greens cost between $2.99 and $5.98 per pound.

Dairy Products: Yogurt, Butter, Cheese and Ice-Cream
It’s important to go organic with these kitchen staples because we eat so much of them, so often. Non-organic dairy products may come from cows fed a diet of genetically modified corn, soy, and antibiotics. Organic dairy products can be found at grocery stores and usually cost between $2.19 and $4.29.

If you’re like me, the thought of never having potatoes can be a real bummer. I confess, I do not eat them that often.

However, there comes the occasion, such as tonight, when I crave a few fries with my dinner. I recently figured out a way to make them that is perfect, healthy and even my children love them.

In fact, they commented, “These are the best french fries ever!” I hope your family enjoys them as well.

Healthy Potato Fries

4 Organic Potatoes, washed and scrubbed (I like leaving the skin on for more nutrition)
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1 T Salt
1/2 t Pepper
1 T Parsley Flakes

Heat Oven to 450. Cut Potatoes into 1/4″ shoestring size strips. Drizzle with Olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and parsley. Mix them up well with your hands to ensure all potatoes are coated evenly. Spread out on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes until crisp and brown. Enjoy!

What is your favorite way to fix potatoes?

Is Network Marketing the greatest thing since sliced bread? I think so!

And you know what? Many, many other people, including Jack Canfield, Robert Kiyosaki and even Donald Trump think so too!

Why? I’ll let Jack Canfield tell you in his own words:

I have been involved in the direct selling and network marketing industry for more than 40 years. My life has been richly rewarded as a consumer, as a distributor, and as an active Success Trainer, Coach and Advisor for dozens of companies. My passion and affinity for the industry runs deep. I love the people, the products, the leadership and the culture many of companies have (and continue) to create.

Here is an interview Jack did with Network Marketing Pro Eric Worre:

And here’s Robert Kiyosaki:

Any of you who know this blog, know how much I LOVE Young Living essential oils and their products. I use them all of the time. In my journey to live a more natural, holistic lifestyle, I was fortunate and blessed enough to find Young Living.

I am grateful that the oils and company I love so much, will pay me to share something I am sharing anyway. They pay me instead of paying $1 million to air a 30 second commercial during half-time at the Super Bowl and that’s a wonderful thing!

Young Living is the #1 essential oil company in the world. They are experiencing phenomenal growth because their oils are simply the best. They are the only company with the Seed to Seal guarantee because they are the only company I am aware of who owns their own farms. They are there every step of the way from planting, to harvesting, to distillation, testing and bottling.

If you are interesting in living a more abundant life both physically and financially, please visit my other site and learn more!

I would love to help you live a more abundant life!

Sinus

Have you ever had a sinus infection? I can tell you they are no fun!

It is a pain you do not want to know! Symptoms of a sinus infection (Sinusitis) may include:

  • Sinus pressure behind the eyes and the cheeks
  • A runny, stuffy nose that lasts more than a week
  • A worsening headache
  • Slight dizziness when shifting position
  • A fever
  • Cough
  • Bad breath
  • Thick yellow or green mucus draining from your nose or down the back of your throat
  • Fatigue
  • Decreased sense of smell
  • Pain in your teeth and upper jaw

Please know that if your teeth are hurting you, it may not be your teeth, it may be a sinus infection. I have read countless stories about people who kept going to their dentist because their teeth hurt, only to find there was nothing wrong with their teeth. It is because it was not their teeth, it was a sinus infection!

Before starting on my holistic way of life, I would have turned to the doctor and asked for antibiotics to treat this painful condition. I would take those antibiotics while also downing copious amounts of Ibuprofen to deal with the pain.

Well, last week guess what? I developed a sinus infection! The entire right side of my face was throbbing.

The first thing I did was grab my Essential Oil Desk Reference to find out what oils I should be using to combat this condition. Let me say this – One thing I keep reading over and over is that when you are using essential oils, you need to make sure you are using enough of them and that you are using them often enough. You cannot put a couple of drops of Thieves in your diffuser and think everything is going to be okay.

Be aggressive! Use your oils!

After doing my research, here is the protocol I came up with for myself and am happy to report that I am feeling much better.

Ningxia Red

Ningxia Red has many benefits and will help boost your body’s ability to fight off infection. You can find out more about Ningxia Red and why you should be drinking it every day here.

Coconut Oil

I put a tablespoon of organic virgin coconut oil with 6 drops of Thieves in my mouth and swished it around for about 5 minutes, then swallowed.  You can find out more about the benefits of coconut oil here.

Thieves Mouthwash

I love, love, love my Thieves Mouthwash. I use it every day after I use my Thieves dental floss and Thieves toothpaste. When I got the sinus infection, I not only used it this way, but I gargled with it and swished it around in my mouth for several minutes before spitting it out. You can find out more about Thieves products here.

Copaiba for Pain Management

When I first started using oils to treat my family’s health needs, one thing I was concerned about was what I was going to do about pain relief. I can get horrible migraines if I don’t nip my sinus headaches in the bud. Then I discovered Copaiba and I haven’t looked back. I’ve been using this to help alleviate the discomfort from the sinus infection. You can read more about Copaiba here.

Natural Antiobiotic Formula

Lastly, I would take a teaspoon of Coconut oil and add the following:

12 drops of Thieves, 2 drops of Frankincense and 6 drops of Oregano

I would swish this around in my mouth for about a minute, then swallow. I took this 3 times a day: morning, afternoon and evening.

This protocol is what has worked for me in battling a sinus infection. I hope it helps you as well.
