How Do Essential Oils Affect the Gut Microbiome? Let’s See What the Research Says


Those of us who learn the importance of gut health and how our gut health affects all areas of our health place a high priority on preserving our gut health! That’s when when I first looked into essential oils, I wanted to know, with proven research, how they affect our gut microbiome. And not just our gut microbiome because our entire body has more bacteria than cells. Even using things topically can alter our body’s microflora.  So I spent hours and hours digging […]

25 Days of Oils in the Bible


In December 2016, I had a 25 Days of Oils in the Bible on my Using the Scents God Gave You Facebook page. It was lots of fun and many people enjoyed the information, so I’m combining the posts here in one blog post for easy viewing! (*NOTE: These photos are copyrighted.

5 Tell-Tale Signs That An Essential Oil Is Not Pure


The essential oil industry is highly unregulated. You can buy a bottle of essential oil anywhere nowadays and they almost all say “pure” and “natural.” Yet there are more essential oils sold than there are plants produced to make that amount of essential oils, so something is very wrong here. Why would anyone advertise essential oils as being of mediocre quality or less than the very best? Quite naturally, vendors offer ‘only the best’ and, as a result, such claims have […]

Are Essential Oils New Age? Witchcraft?


There is a lot of confusion and disagreement among Christians regarding essential oils. Are they New Age? Witchcraft? What about the physical and especially the mental health claims about them?! So how do we reconcile this? What is the truth? Well, we look to God’s Word for the answer, of course! The Truth Is… More than any other therapeutic substance mentioned in Scripture, aromatic plants appear over 1,000 times throughout the Bible. Seventy percent (70%!!) of the books of the […]

Have A Passion For Natural Health? Want To Work From Home?


Do you have a passion for natural health, want to work from home, and receive FREE online education?!! I spent thousands of dollars on my training as a Certified Nutrition Counselor and Naturopathic Doctor, and while I don’t regret it, I do wonder sometimes if it was necessary. For one thing, a lot of what I learned to help people the most was completely separate studying from the studying in those programs. The knowledge I use the most to help […]

How To Support Liver Health Powerfully & Naturally

Essential Oil Quality–The Problem With Relying Solely on GC/MS


In essential oil groups, there is a lot of emphasis placed on purity, as there should be. Unfortunately, too much of that same emphasis is centered around GC/MS tests. GC/MS is gas chromatography–mass spectrometry, one of many tests used to analyze an essential oil. While many essential oil users look to it as the surefire way to tell if an essential oil is good, it has many shortcomings. And relying upon this kind of testing can cause a lot of problems.  Contrary […]

Secrets to Having Youthful, Healthy Skin Naturally


Now that I’m nearing 40, I’ve been giving more thought to maintaining healthy skin. For me, having healthy skin isn’t just about physical appearance. It’s about physical health. Our skin health is an outward expression of our inner health. And with summer here, it’s even more important to take steps to keep our skin healthy. Unfortunately, most of the skin care products available today are full of toxins that can cause long-term health problems. As always, nourishing our body can and should […]

I have been a Young Living wholesale member for three years and during that time, I […]

My Favorite Way to Soothe and Moisturize Skin (and it’s not lotion)
