I went out to the garden the other day and it seemed like all the plants had grown overnight! All the rain we’ve been getting lately was really good for the garden. Except there was one piddly little tomato plant that was practically the same size as when I’d transplanted it, while the others had doubled or more in size. At first I thought maybe something was eating it. I sprinkled diatomaceous earth (DE) on the leaves and around the plant. DE is great for killing small bugs and insects, it cuts up their soft underbellies (wonderful, I know) as they crawl over it.
But the DE did nothing. A few days later the other tomato plants were now three or four times bigger and this one plant was just getting worse. I wanted to do something about it before it got too bad. When I looked up common tomato problems, I found some pictures of “early blight” that looked like my tomato plant.
-Usually you treat blight with a fungicide, but most fungicides are filled with chemicals I don’t want on my tomato plants and future tomatoes. So I looked up a DIY fungicide and found a recipe that I tweaked a little bit.
Here’s the recipe I used:
*16 oz. spray bottle
*1 teaspoon baking soda (it’s naturally anti-fungal)
*Squirt of Thieves dish soap (dish soap is supposed to be a good ingredient in a fungicide and I’m glad I can use one that is chemical-free)
*Dash of olive oil (cooking oils may kill some insects and it also can get the solution to stick to the plants)
*A few drops of citronella and cedarwood (Bugs don’t like these smells. I use them in a bug spray for myself, I figured if it worked on humans it might work on plants, just in case it was bugs and not a fungus. Who knows?! It’s worth a shot.)
*Topped the bottle off with filtered water.
I tested it on just the one plant that’s not doing well, but if it doesn’t hurt it I’ll use it on the other plants as a precautionary measure. I sprayed in the evening, it was a sunny day and if you spray it on a bright sunny day, the oil in the solution could scorch the plants. We’ll see how it goes! I’ll post an update later when I have one.
P.S. All you garden experts out there, if I’m doing something wrong and your thinking, “the problem is so obvious, why isn’t she doing so and so” please let me know! I would love to learn from your knowledge and experience!
I just finished reading the book Roots by Alex Haley last night. If you’ve never read Roots, you should. It is a book that chronicles one family’s story of hardship and endurance that begins in a village in Africa in 1750 and ends at a funeral in Arkansas roughly two centuries later. I listened to the audiobook version and the last hour and a half was the author describing how his grandmother would tell the story of their family passed down to them from their ancestors, starting with Haley’s 7th great-grandfather who they referred to as “the African”. Based on just a few clues, Haley was able to piece together who “the African” was, where he came from, when he was born, and who his descendants were. It gave me goosebumps just listening to it.
Today I remembered a similar situation in my life. When I was six years old, my mom, who homeschooled me and my three sisters, taught a class to my older sisters called “Write Your Roots.”
As part of the class, each of my sisters had to write a book on family history. Not to be left out, my mom helped me compose my own accounting of my family history, at least what I could remember of it. The book was almost of the same quality as Alex Haley’s Roots. If I remember right, I would tell my mom the story and she would write it down for me. She was my personal scribe, really.
Well, I found the book, professionally printed and bound, of course.
And, lest a view of the cover leave you wondering if we were anything less than professional, it was even copyrighted.
In it are eight stories passed down from generation to generation. Well, close. They were eight occurrences in my life that, to a six-year-old, seemed pretty important at the time.
The first story requires a little background. Up until the time I was four years old, we lived in a house in a neighborhood in the ‘burbs. But in October of 2004, we moved out of that house planning to move to 120ish acres of land out in the country. Like the house that we had just moved out of, my dad was building our new house also. We started with our shop. Sometimes it gets called a barn, sometimes a garage. (Its always Dad calling it the wrong thing, we’ve tried to tell him how important it is to distinguish between the barn, the garage, and the shop. After all when he says, “Go get my red handled bolt cutters from the garage,” and you spend 10 minutes in the garage looked for “red handled…what did he say they were? Oh yeah, bolt cutters, hmm…what does a bolt cutter look like?” and come back empty handed only to discover that he meant the shop, you begin to realize the importance of calling it like it is. A shop is a shop.) So we started with the shop, planning to make it livable while we finished the new house.
Dad and Papa working on the shop.
Papa's parents making sure everything's running smoothly.
But when we moved out of our old house, the shop wasn’t quite ready yet. So we ended up living with my dad’s parents, Nana and Papa, for eight weeks before moving into the shop.
Ok, here is the transcript of my six-year-old version of that Christmas, called “The Laundry Drop-off”.
“Dennis and his family had recently moved from their home. Their shop wasn’t quite yet finished due to immense amounts of rain and, therefore mud, that year.
This is about the time you call it a day.
As a result, Nana and Papa kindly offered to let the six-member family come live with them in the interim. Dennis, Kim, and the girls were so grateful to have a nice, fun place to stay while they built their shop.
While they stayed there, Nana worked very hard to keep them comfortable. She cooked meals each day for them, helped transport the girls to various activities, cleaned house, helped teach the girls while Kim ran errands, and did their laundry on many occasions. In fact, it was a standing joke around there that if you took a shower and threw your dirty clothes on the floor, they would be laundered and neatly folded on the kitchen table when you got out!
On December 23, 2004 the young family finally moved into their shop. Since it was Christmas time, the family wanted to repay Nana and Papa’s kindness with a thoughtful Christmas gift. Dennis, Kim, and the girls came up with a wonderful idea – they would prepare two boxes for laundry. One would be for dirty laundry, which was to be tied near Nana’s gate and labeled “Laundry Drop-off.” The other would be at Dennis and Kim’s gate, labeled “Clean Laundry.” It was a fantastic idea! After all, Nana said she loved doing laundry for them and would miss them terribly after their eight week stay at her home! It seemed like the perfect solution.”
Surveying our accomplishment.
My three sisters, two cousins, and I with Nana and Papa at Christmas that year.
I know, I know, you’re wondering why I’ve waited this long to get published.
I know, right?! Cookie brownies? Does life get much better???
I realize in our last blog post I mentioned the consumption of essential oils and said we would cover that more in the next post, but I got so excited about what I’m about to share with you that I decided to give this to you first!
Ok, so I used einkorn flour the right way the other day and I am NEVER GOING BACK!
In case you were wondering, einkorn is an ancient grain that would have been the grain our ancestors used before all of the hybridization changed everything. Einkorn has retained its primitive genetic code that contains only 14 chromosomes—a huge difference from the 42 chromosomes contained in modern hybridized wheat. This superior ancient grain also contains less gluten than modern whole wheat and is more abundant in many vitamins and minerals.
In case you’re wondering what I meant by using einkorn the “right way”, I bought a cookbook filled with recipes that were designed for einkorn after an unfortunate outcome with my first attempt at baking with einkorn. I tried making cinnamon rolls using a regular recipe. I kneaded the dough, let it rise for like an hour, rolled it out, spread on the cinnamon filling, rolled it up, cut it up, got super excited, put it in the oven, and brought them out only to discover that they had turned rock hard.
So, I found a recipe book for EINKORN!!!
I’m pretty sure it’s changed my life.
And I cracked it open at the perfect time of the year when I’m in the mood for baking!!! Needless to say, I’m very excited to have a flour that is an original food (and I’m all about original foods). It’s untouched by hybridization, left the way God made it. And, go figure, He made a version of wheat that’s better than anything we could come up with!
So: here’s a tutorial of what we made (I’m pretty sure I found what I want my next birthday cake to be).
Essential oils can be inhaled aromatically, applied topically to the skin, or ingested by mouth. If you are unsure where to start, refer to labeled instructions for use.
There are three different ways to use essential oils aromatically. First is simply inhaling from the bottle. Open the bottle, hold the bottle a couple of inches from your nose, and inhale the aroma.
Essential oils may also be applied directly to the skin. Many people choose to start by applying essential oils on the bottoms of the feet or the palms of the hands. The skin in these areas is a bit thicker and less easily irritated compared to other skin. Use caution when using essential oils on more delicate skin, such as under the arms, on the face, on skin that is broken, or any other area of the body you find sensitive.
Some essential oils like clove, cinnamon, and lemongrass are hot on the skin, whereas others like peppermint are perceived as cold. If an essential oil is too hot or too cold on the skin, always add carrier oil. Carrier oils are fatty oils that ensure the application of essential oils is comfortable on the skin. Many fatty oils, like almond, jojoba, coconut, olive, and hempseed, are excellent carrier oils. Petrolatum jelly, mineral oil, or other synthetic oils are not ideal because they act as an occlusive barrier instead of diluting the essential oil.
SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR TOPICAL USE
Very young children, especially premature infants, are exquisitely sensitive to essential oils, and additional caution must be exercised when applying essential oils to the skin. Some experts argue that essential oils should never be used on the skin of premature infants, but many parents choose to use essential oils on very young infants. Ensure the essential oil is very heavily diluted in carrier oil before use.
Before applying an essential oil to the skin, consider a patch test. To perform a patch test, apply 1-2 drops of essential oil to a patch of skin, such as the forearm. Observe the skin for 1-2 hours for any noticeable reaction, such as redness, irritation, itching, or burning.
If any discomfort occurs, do not apply more essential oil, and apply carrier oil as often as needed to the affected area. Never use water to flush the oil off the skin, as this may increase irritation. If any discomfort arises with an essential oil, dilute it with carrier oil before using again.
WHEN TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS
There is no perfect time schedule to use an essential oil. Some people choose to use essential oils very regularly, perhaps three to four times per day or more, while others only use as needed for a specific purpose. There is no perfect time or way to use essential oils. As you decide on a direction, be sure to consider the ultimate goal for the essential oil and select the administration method that most closely aligns with that aim.
There are truly only two major mistakes one can make while using essential oils: not using them at all or using way too much. Excessive use is loosely defined as using more that one milliliter at one time, this is not recommended.
There are three basic ways to use essential oils: topically, aromatically, and internally. It does not take much essential oil to make a large difference to your environment, a food or beverage, or your well-being.

Also known as plant oils, volatile oils, and aetherolea, essential oils are concentrated hydrophobic liquids containing volatile chemical compound from plants. They are called essential because they contain the 'essence' of the plant fragrance.
FUNCTIONS OF ESSENTIAL OILS
Essential oils are secondary metabolites that lend the characteristic odor to plants. Essential oils can be present in the leaves, flowers, stems, or roots of plants. These natural, aromatic oils are obtained by the distillation of plant material and also come from resin tapping, cold pressing, or absolute extraction. These processes concentrate the essential oil molecules, leading to an intense aroma. Essential oils act as protectors against fungi, bacteria, insects, and other predators, play an important role in attraction pollinators, and prevent other botanicals from growing in a plant's territory.
BIOSYNTHESIS OF PLANTS
In aromatic plants, the biosynthesis of essential oils occurs through two complex pathways. Two compounds are the universal precursor to all essential oils: isopentenyl diphosphate (IPP) and its cousin dimethylallyl diphosphate (DMAPP). Using multiple plastid and enzyme pathways, essential oil precursors IPP and DMAPP are condensed to form prenyl diphosphates. The prenyl diphosphates are then processed by various terpene sythases. Essential oils are the end product of these enzymes.
HOW ESSENTIAL OILS ARE RELEASED FROM PLANTS
Atop the surface of the plant are specialized cells called glandular trichomes. These trichomes are tiny, hair-like formations found on the surface of plant stems and leaves. At the tip of the hairs are glandular cells that produce, store, and eventually secrete exudates such as essential oils. The trichomes squeeze the essential oils out of the plant so they can serve their protective function. The trichomes come in many different shapes and sizes, and in fact may be very specific for individual plants.
The trichomes are not directly connected with the plant's vascular system and are therefore not a part of the primary metabolism. Instead, they are a part of the secondary metabolism that secretes aromas in response to external stressors. The compounds secreted by the plant have antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral activity that protect the plant from further farm. Thus, the more stress a plant has been under, the more likely it is to have highly developed trichomes. In artificial growing environments, the plants can be encouraged to produce more trichomes and more secondary metabolites with exposure to ultraviolet light or by using specialized fertilizer.
VARIABILITY IN ESSENTIAL OIL CHEMISTRY
Essential oils contain thousands of volatile compounds that evaporate quickly into the air, and the ratio of the molecules imparts the aroma to the oil. The season of the year, geography, and distillation techniques can change the ratio of the molecules resulting in subtle or dramatic differences in the aroma, volatility, and viscosity of the essential oil.
HISTORY OF ESSENTIAL OILS
Humans have used essential oils for many centuries across many cultures for their aromas and flavors and to enhance wellness, spirituality, recipes, and cosmetic products. Many ancient uses of essential oils still exist today.
Evidence from the very ancient world suggests a connection between man and plants. An ancient Mesopotamian grave of a Neanderthal man revealed pollen from eight different medicinal herbs, indicating that plants were likely used as a part of ceremonies. Clay tablets from Mesopotamia have inscriptions with herbal remedies using aromatic plants of pine, fennel, and galbanum.
Moving forward in time, we see that in India ancient Ayurvedic medicine practitioners used a wide variety of plants. Arguably the oldest surviving medical text is the Herbal Classic of Shen Nong, dated 2700 B.C. Shen Nong is regarded as a cultural hero who taught herbal farming practices to others and as the father of Chinese medicine. Because of this rich tradition, China is one of the largest producers of essential oils. Essential oils are also mentioned in the writings of Huangdi in The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Medicine.
As early as 2000 B.C., ancient Egyptians used essential oils alongside fatty oils, clays, and sea salts for beauty practices. In Egyptian temples, essential oil extraction is depicted on the walls, and priests used them alongside herbs in tinctures, unguents, salves, and ointments. Egyptian royalty prized essential oils and they were even discovered inside the tomb of King Tutankhamen.
The Greek physician Hippocrates used essential oils in plasters and to fumigate the city. Romans lavishly used essential oils in baths, during massage, and to scent the hair, body, and bed. At least a dozen essential oils are mentioned in the bible as ceremonial aromas, gifts, and traditional medicine, and these practices are maintained the in the modern Catholic Church.
Though used for many thousands of years, during the Middle Ages essential oils were banned by the Catholic Church as being too decadent, and they fell out of the mainstream into the arena of witchcraft and lore. But by the 1600s, essential oils worked their way back into the mainstream, and by the 1800s were included in pharmacopeias across Europe. The south of France was bursting with lavender, and commercialization of essential oils became extremely popular.
In recents history, the work of Rene-Maurice Gattefosse (the man who coined the term "aromatherapy"), Jean Valnet, Daniel Penoel, Herve Casabianca, and Gary Young have firmly established essential oils as powerful plant products with diverse and extensive uses.
Essential oils are more that just pleasant scents; they have complex active chemical constituents inside the plant, and this chemistry is maintained following extraction from plants.

WHY NingXia Red is the best thing to fuel your body!!
You guys, I genuinely want every single one of you to be drinking this goodness.
Here is a video from one SUPER SMART human, Dr. Jim Bob Haggerton, sharing 4 reasons NingXia is the best: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIEJ5ZViw1A&feature=youtu.be
And here are the notes for ya ❤
Four reasons why NingXia Red is so incredible.
1. "Macro" nutrient supplement. Micro Nutrition is where a nutritionist might take a certain supplement out of an apple to isolate it get the benefits from it. Macro Nutrition is where they look at the apple as a WHOLE because our bodies were designed perfectly and we benefit from all of it. A great example of why taking things out of the way they were created is water. Water is made up simply of hydrogen and oxygen. Say there is a fire in the room and you pour water on it. It goes out. Because that's what water does to fire. Yes? So, say you mess around with the water and take the oxygen out and throw that on the fire. Boom. Explosion. No bueno. NingXia Red is a Macro nutrient supplement, in other words, a WHOLE food supplement. It delivers a ton of nutrition because the whole fruit has been added.
2. It's liquid. Why is that important and beneficial? Most of us have a digestive system that is not functioning well. Because of that, it would be hard for our bodies to break down and absorb these nutrients if they weren't liquid. This is why juicing and smoothies are so beneficial!
3. Antioxidants. NingXia Red is made up of wolfberries, blueberries, cherries, pomegranates, and aronia juice blend. So, if you look up the ORAC value (a measuring value for antioxidants in foods and drinks) of this, it's 1500 per ounce. The S-ORAC value for NingXia Red is 363 per ounce. That happens to be the HIGHEST value of any product like NingXia Red that is on the market. What does that mean to us? Immune support. Major major immune support.
Why is this so important for our bodies? Let's look at a how a car works. Every morning, when you start your car, does exhaust come out of the tailpipe? Yep. And is that normal for that engine? Yep. That exhaust is a normal byproduct of healthy function in that engine. Here's the thing though, even though that exhaust is normal, if you cap the tailpipe then it chokes the engine and it will die. Our bodies are the same! The "exhaust" in our bodies are called free radicals. So on just a normal day, our bodies create BILLIONS of free radicals. If we don't get enough antioxidants in our daily diet (let's face it, we probs aren't), then those free radicals aren't going anywhere. An antioxidant helps our immunity to work better which in turn keeps us above the wellness line.
4. Essential Oils. Duh. Orange, Yuzu, Lemon, and Tangerine. These oils help support our digestion and blood sugar and circulation and immunity and the neurological system and normal body detox.
So, what about the Sodium Benzoate in NingXia Red? Sodium Benzoate is a preservative and in America there HAS to be a certain amount of a preservative in a liquid product to be able to legally put it on the shelf. So, Young Living is awesome and the Sodium Benzoate that they use is one that is NATURALLY OCCURING in cranberries and other fruits. There is no synthetic chemical in NingXia and the amount of the naturally occuring Sodium Benzoate is very small.
What's not to love?!

If you've started your search into essential oils, chances are you've seen charts that look something like this...
These are VitaFlex point charts. WHAAAA???
You've never heard of VitaFlex?! That's alright! The video posted below should help clear things up for you!
In short, VitaFlex stands for "vitality through the reflexes." The body has a complex system of reflexes and nerve channels that would be great to get familiar with! But since most of us don't have time, let me just sum up the process for you...
You can use the body's reflex system and nerve channels to help relieve all sorts of ailments, such as congestion, migraines, etc. The history of this process dates WAAAAAYYYY back to Tibet, thousands of years ago, and actually BEFORE the beginning of acupuncture.
The VitaFlex technique takes advantage of the body's complete network of nerves and reflexes that travel all throughout your body, connecting and stimulating every single organ and every bodily system. When you perform the VitaFlex technique, you produce an electrical charge that is sent through the body's reflex and nervous channels until it runs into a blockage of some kind -- this could be toxins or damaged cells.
The electrical charge then works to break down this blockage and bring healing.
When combined with Essential Oils, this technique's effectiveness is amplified a TON and can work more efficiently to support whatever specific bodily function you desire.
Check out this video to get a demo on HOW to perform this technique as well as an explaination of the charts! You'll get a good laugh in, too!

I am a stay-at-home-mother of 6, ages 7, 6, 5, 3, almost 2, and 3 months. We live on a good chunk of land out in the country with our cows, our chickens, cats, dogs, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents! My husband is a full-time fireman. We homeschool and are working towards our life goal of homesteading 100% of the time.
Our family has been using essential oils for over 8 years now! They've been an amazing part of our Whole Health Journey and I wanted to share with you how we got started, and why we are now with Young Living.
We had our first child 7 1/2 years ago. While pregnant, we started searching for a pediatrician that would work well for our family. We met with several popular and highly recommended clinics in our local area. We were young parents (21 and 22 years old) and didn't know a whole lot about anything! I had one particular thing that I was hesitant about allowing to be done to my daughter. Just one.
While touring and interviewing with the most highly recommended pediatrics clinic on our list, we were suddenly blind sided by the doctors at the end of our meeting. We were told that we had to sign an agreement to do every thing the physician recommended and that the state recommended in regard to our daughter or be dismissed from their practice! We tried to say, "but what if...?" and "we could sign a refusal form..." but to no avail.
We walked out of that clinic that day and never went back. It wasn't about the specific required treatment to us then; it was about Parental Rights. We were being refused our parental rights to our child.
After I got over my initial response of anger, I decided it was time! It was time to do my research, learn for myself all the ins and outs of WHY we made the medical decisions we did. I was done taking people's word for it. I have God-given rights as the parent of my child and I knew I needed to have the proper information to fulfill that responsibility to the best of my ability!
That quickly led me to essential oils. I found that they could be used to support our WHOLE health, not just one aspect. I discovered that they were reliable and effective! I figured out that they were much cheaper in helping keep my family well than treatment of illness would be if we were to live a lifestyle that promoted UNhealth.
I began my essential oil journey with a company NOT Young Living. I spent years with this other company and LOVED my oils! I learned so much about how they worked, what I liked about them, how to use them most effectively for me and my family.
After almost 6 years, I decided that I wanted more. I wanted a wider range of options when it came to oils and healthy living products. Our family has grown so much in our pursuit of whole health! We've learned so many wonderful things! It's an ever-growing subject, though. There's always more information out there. More subjects to explore.
Young Living has been a great source that has allowed me to expand my Whole Health Journey to something beyond my original pursuit of little changes here and there. We've jumped into this thing head first and are so excited about making major changes in our lives that will change the direction of our family's health as a whole and benefit so many others! The fact that YL has hundreds of oils and oil blends was a HUGE attraction! As well as all of the amazing home products like home cleaners, laundry detergents, dish care, bath products, make-up (what?!?! A post for another day...), a baby care line, a kids care line, dietary and nutritional supplements, and more! And new things coming all the time! Young Living has figured out that our whole health doesn't stop with topical application and diffusion of essential oils! There's so much more!
Some of the changes our family has made/is making slowly over the past several years:
*all organic/non-GMO in our diet (with some cheats, y'all, we aren't perfect! ...everything in moderation, right?!)
*chemical-free, non-toxic cleaning products
*all natural and 100% pure support for our health and wellness
*and the changes keep coming...!
Of course, these things have had an effect on our budget. But after so much research, we've decided that our health and wellness is of top priority to us! (Directly under our spiritual walk with our Savior, of course!) We want the best for our children, and we've come to the conclusion that health-wise, this is it! Keep learning, keep growing, keep changing for the better! So the financial side is: we've had to rearrange some of our monetary priorities to be able to afford some of this stuff (all organic food in a single-income home?! $$$$ YIKES!) but we truly believe it will be worth the sacrifice.
We can't always change everything all at once, either! It is expensive! We live off of a fireman's income. We have to work things in when we can afford them! But I'm attempting to "ditch-and-switch" one item every month until I am satisfied that all the items in our home are working FOR our Whole Body Health instead of AGAINST it.
Young Living is a HUGE part of this transformation. Because of their seed-to-seal promise and their history of faithfulness and honesty, I feel confident placing my trust in them for the products my family needs.
If you have any questions about how I made the switch to pursuing Whole Health or about Young Living, please comment below! I'd love to hear from you and help you any way I can on your Whole Health Journey!
