Jesus came to save sinners like me

Jesus came to save sinners like me

Boosting immune system

Boosting immune system

One of the really cool ways that we use the essential oil’s is on the feet. The pores on the feet are quite large and so it is especially easy for essential oils to enter the body. According to everything I’ve read, it takes 20 minutes for the oils on the feet to be everywhere […]

Unwelcome company lurking around my h...


I would love to be a great housekeeper. I am not. Never have been. Several years ago, my husband was bit by a brown recluse spider. It was a wild adventure that propelled us into a new business helping others get started with essential oils.  Along the way, we learned brown recluse spiders like quiet […]

I ran across this quote and it really struck a chord. Losers quit… when they fail. Winners fail… until they succeed! Everyday we have events, circumstances […]
