The Little Oilers Kit

Ahhhhhhh!! This one had me so excited.

This kit is geared towards babies and kiddos!!! And, until Sept 30th, new members will get a FREE KidPower oil and free shipping!

This comes with a Feather the Owl diffuser, which also has a nightlight and sound machine. Includes a set of 5ml bottles of Sleepyize, Owie, Geneyus, Sniffleease, and Tummygize and two roller fitments to pop on any oil you want for easy application!

// GENEYUS // Let’s call this one focus in a bottle. This oil is a game changer for anyone that has trouble focusing on one task! This is a great one to roller on the back of the neck (brain stem) before school work! Throw a few rolls on a leather bracelet or necklace, apply a bit to wrists when you really need to concentrate.

// SNIFFLEEASE // Looove this on little chests and backs! Full of powerful oils like Eucalyptus blue, Palo santo, Lavender, Dorado azul, Ravintsara, Myrtle, Eucalyptus globulus, Marjoram, Pine, Eucalyptus citriodora, Cypress, eucalyptus radiata, Black spruce and Peppermint oils, this is so so needed during the fall and winter to make little lungs happy! Remember how we talk about how much we LOVE those tree oils? YUP. Full of ’em!

// TUMMYGIZE //Leave this one out where the kids can grab it whenever they need it. It’s so beautiful to teach them to be in tune with their bodies needs! A swipe on the belly will help pretty much any issue feel better! A blend of Spearmint, Peppermint, Tangerine, Fennel, Anise, Ginger, and Cardamom, TummyGize is the perfect relaxing blend for massaging onto little tummies.

// SLEEPYIZE // This relaxing bedtime (or anytime!) blend is so beloved for all ages! SleepyIze contains a beautiful combination of Lavender, Geranium, Roman Chamomile, Tangerine, Bergamot, and Sacred Frankincense, as well as sleepytime favorites Valerian and Rue! I cannot tell you how much we adore this blend in our little ones’ diffusers at night, and rolled on to undersides of their big toes and down the spine. Perfect for nighttime bonding and snuggles, you are going to LOVE it!!

// OWIE // For allllll the boo-boos!!!! Another one to leave out where the kids can easily grab it when needed! It’s formulated with Tea Tree, Elemi, and other oils which are gentle and perfect for the skin, so keep this one handy for application whenever your little one needs some extra love and care.

// KIDPOWER // Free until Sept 30th! Bravery in a bottle for the littles! This NEW oil reminds me of Valor with a hint of an orange creamsicle. Roll on wrists or spine, or take a big inhale, when you’re going into a new situation and need some courage.

The Starter Kit + Emotions

We use the kit to help balance and support our emotions. I can’t tell you how much this has changed my life. When I grabbed the kit I knew that there were endless benefits for your skin, hair and health but I had no idea how greatly this would help balance my anxiety and overall mental health. 

Valor. I am starting with this oil because I will never be without this (and now my CBD calm roller). I call this oil liquid Xanax because I lean for this when I am feeling overwhelmed, mind race, and panic. The whole nine. I have a roller top on this guy so I will apply to my neck, wrists and bridge of nose. I also drop 2-3 droplets in my hand and inhale deeply about 5 times. Diffuse for a deep sleep because Lord knows how anxiety/depression take a toll on your zzz’s.

Peace + Calming. Another dream blend. My son has taken to this oil and we reach for it whenever he is overtired, overstimulated, stuck in a carseat (smh). This is usually being diffused at my house in the evening when we are winding down. I have the premade roller with me at all times. 

Lavender. I’m sure you’ve heard that lavender promotes a deep sleep. This is very true but please do not just diffuse it. I literally drop it in my nighttime shower to wind down, I spray it on JJ’s sheets before he goes to bed, I spray it on my face because it hydrates my skin. All the things. 

Frankincense. Skin gold but also the most grounding scent you can ever smell. I inhale and apply when I am doing yoga. It brings my mind back to earth and ceases the racing. I didn’t like the smell of this at first but have grown to be obsessed with it. Many diffuse this at night for a deep sleep but I haven’t brought myself to do that yet. I savor it for topical application. Amazing for immunity too so there you go. 

Lemon, Citrus Fresh, Peppermint: All of these scents are uplifting when diffused and applied. If I am in a funk and having trouble getting out of bed in the morning (aka quarantine), I will make sure to have these in the diffuser ready to go for when I wake. Gives me an extra kick in the ass. All citrus scents are uplifting btw. 

Stress Away. Does exactly what it says. See ya later stress. This smells like a vacation in a bottle and personally I only diffuse. Loveee to diffuse when we have company over to break the ice. Everyone always comments on the scent. 

The Oily Life

“Welcome to the good life” – Kanye West.

I’ve always been obsessed with essential oils. My husband bought me my first set off Amazon and I absolutely loved the smells as they diffused through my home. I knew oils were supposed to help me out with my skin, hair, immune system, etc. but I wasn’t seeing any results. My friend Tre introduced me to Young Living. This company produces 100% seed to seal natural oils, which is why they are costlier then those brands that are sold on Amazon. I tried to make the Amazon oils work, but reading more into Young Living, I was ready.

The day I decided to purchase the YL Starter Kit was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life. Trust me, I know this sounds cheesy and not like me at all, just bear with me here. I started using them right away, creating rollers for everyday causes. My sleep was way off due to everyday stressors so that was the first to improve. My allergies diminished, my dandruff ridded (tea tree is an anti-fungal miracle worker), my curly fro improved tenfold. I haven’t had a sinus infection in years which is INSANE for me. The more I saw results, the more product I tried. My overall well being has improved. One day I hope to start a family and you bet your ass I’ll be using YL’s kid line. I’m sure you’ll catch it on one of my 827 oil insta stories. Apologies in advance people but this shit is too good not to share.

Farewell, 2018. A friendly reminder to keep doing you.


take-care-of-yourself

I am so unbelievably optimistic for the new year.

2018 was definitely a rough one, many highs and low but the more I think about it, every year is full of them. Some are worse than other *cough, this one* but that is life right? Nobody is going to have the perfect year. Through all of the ups and downs I am definitely grateful for where I currently am at now. The people I surround myself with are so supportive and genuine. That means so, so much. Through all the bullshit, I have learned so much. Mental struggles brought pain but also brought strength. Loss of family brought agony and sorrow but I learned to actually feel it. I’m so much more in touch with my emotions, who I am, who I want to be, and who I want to surround myself with. Social media portrays perfect lives, but everyone is dealt a deck that contains jokers. Some, more jokers than others which is definitely unfair. But try to remember that while you scroll through your social apps. Everyone has their cross to bear. I’m not perfect, my life isn’t either, but guess what… nobody’s is.

So here’s to 2019. If you’re looking for me, I’ll be somewhere taking care of me. Taking care of my mental health. Taking a day off if I need it. Cancelling plans if I don’t want to go. I wouldn’t call it selfish, I would call it necessary, especially for my mental health. Take care of your loved ones, but don’t forget yourself. Instead of watching trash TV (I’ll never not watch Real Housewives so that’s that), watch an informative documentary or read a self help book. I recommend Girl, Wash your Face and You are a Badass . Don’t have time to read? Listen to them in your car on your commute to work. I find listening to podcasts in the mornings keep me motivated, especially on Mondays when my mind is like “WTF is life”. Be you. Don’t be afraid to be who you are. Those who don’t like who you really are can pound sand. Why would you even want to fuck with those kinds of people anyway? Encourage others, hug your loved ones, hug strangers! Support your homies. The world nowadays needs more of that. I mean there’s always going to be friends and family who occasionally drive you up a wall but forgive them. Be forgiving. Life is way too short and it’s so much easier to love.

So raise a glass to 2019. After all, ya only got one life, so make it a great one.

To Be Vulnerable, or Not to be Vulnerable: That is the Question.

All the love and support to this wonder woman. I love you, Mo. ❤

Mo and the Madness

I’ve been debating sharing this for a while now and wasn’t sure if I was up for it or not. However; I want to be as open as possible with anyone who reads this if it could possibly help anybody else suffering. So here we go! Vulnerable Mo coming atcha.

I’ve had a rough last few weeks. I put a brave face on, and try to go about my regular day, but deep down I was suffering. I was going back and forth with my psychiatrist with medication switches. One of the medications was making me so sick that I actually thought I had the flu or the stomach bug. I was so sick and nauseous. I couldn’t even keep toast down. This was going on for too long. I thought back on it and the only thing that had changed in the last two weeks was my medication. Back…
