A healthy lifestyle starts with taking the toxins out of your life and replacing them with healthier options - whether it's with activities, foods, and products we use daily. Out with the laying around watching TV, and in with the working out and going on adventures outside. Out with the food filled with a million ingredients you can't pronounce or know what they are, and in with more natural foods, with the least amount of ingredients and more pronounceable names. Out with the hygiene and cleaning products filled with chemicals and things that actually cause more harm than good, and in with homemade and honest products. When it comes to medicine, I always try to steer clear from it, and am always looking for more holistic ways to help my body heal itself, instead of masking the symptoms. So I started researching other ways I could incorporate holistic habits into my daily living. Since using Honest Products, I've been able to get rid of most toxic products, but I wanted to make my own.
Thats when I found Young Living Essential Oils!

How can I use oils ?
When the premium starter kit went on sale, I knew I couldn't let it pass; I decided to take the plunge and purchase it. I joined The Happy Oiler team, and haven't regretted it since!

Ultimately, I want to use this kit to better my world - build up my immune system, help with sore muscles, and in keeping my organs working at their top most levels, use them in food, and start creating my own products to use on the daily, like deodorant, laundry detergent, hand soap, and bug spray (and everything in between)! If you ask me, there is literally an oil for everything!
So far I've created rollers to aid in headache/allergy relief, pain relief after surgery, immune booster, and an itch relief stick. I've diffused stress away and lavender in my diffuser to help me drift off to dreamland, so much that I've since run out of lavender!
Each week I hope to tell you more about an essential oil, or a recipe I'm testing out in my new series, Weekend Essentials. I'll also be giving tips on how to use them in a fitness and health related manner!
