Holiday Diffuser Blends

Holiday Diffuser Blends

I am pretty sure that diffusing essential oils during the holiday season is quite possibly the BEST time ever to diffuse essential oils. Goodbye toxic Christmas candles and say hello to nature's goodness! 

There are so many yummy recipes you can come up with based on the oils you have or perhaps you're in the market to grab some oils to make your home smell like a fancy Christmas store. Either way, play with your oils to test and try out different recipes. Use our guide here for some great recipes! 

There's nothing better than spreading a little Christmas cheer. Did you know that your sense of smell is the fastest way to support or effect the emotional part of your brain? When you inhale an oil, the tiny particles absorb in your mucosa, then straight into a layer that delivers them right to the limbic system, the place where our emotions and memories are all stored. This is how certain smells bring us right back to childhood memories! This is also how Young Living focuses on emotional blends by helping our bodies improve a frequency or experience a particular emotion that we may wish to feel. 

THIS is how oils can help you daily. Whether it is because you want your home to smell like it has a real Christmas tree that brings you straight back to your childhood, or because you need some emotional support throughout the day - this is how you can use oils to improve your lifestyle. 

But enough about that. Go and diffuse some oils so your home will smell like Christmas heaven. And if you're not an oiler yet but ready to jump in, then visit more here and sign up here to join my team and private communities. Let's get some Christmas time cheer into your home!

Wishing you a wonderful and Merry Holiday Season!

Christmas Bucket List for Children

Christmas Bucket List

 

Riding through the Smoky Mountains looking at Christmas lights with "Christmas in Dixie" playing in the background. Decorating the tree on Black Friday while blaring Christmas music and snacking on Thanksgiving leftovers (cold ham and chocolate pie to be exact). Riding around looking at Christmas lights with Christmas music on. Christmas mornings in pajamas with hot cocoa and donuts. These are just a few of the sweet memories that I have of Christmases growing up. 

Christmas is one of the most anticipated and cherished times for parents (well anyone really). We long for the joy it brings, the gift of giving, the secretly surprising our little ones with something they will love and the LOVE of Christ, community and family that surrounds us. 

Unfortunately in the hustle and bustle of it all, we can become lost in the gift lists, store trips, holiday baking, parties and more. It can easily become overwhelming but it shouldn't. In fact, it should be one of the most intentional months if you ask me. Taking the time to be in every moment and fully immersed into the holiday. Whether it is with an Advent calendar or a bucket list of yearly traditions, some old and some new, being intentional is important to me so I can create lasting memories for my children. 

I want them to hear a song and go right back into time, just as "Christmas in Dixie" can do for me. I want my children to smell a Christmas scent or see a favorite dessert and remember the time they baked Christmas cookies with me. 

I want to be unafraid of the messes, the hard to cook recipes, the pies I have never baked and the crafts I may fail at. Christmas only comes one time a year and it's already "the most wonderful time of the year." Make it intentional, mamas. Stop, slow down and enjoy the moment. Create lasting memories and new traditions to build on each year. Use our quick bucket list guide to help spark your imagination on things that you can do with your family this holiday season.

I am Not Supermom

So often within my posts I mention the title Supermom. I say that you are a Supermom or that I am. I refer to our capes and I refer to our days of being a hero. But the truth of the matter is that I am not Supermom. 

Supermom rises before the kids do each and every day and prepares breakfast all from scratch, NEVER from a box. She sits down to have her quiet time and read her devotionals while thanking God for her blessings and feeding the birds that are chirping out the window. 

No matter how hard I try, I can hardly ever manage to rise before them. 

Supermom doesn't yell. No, she is soft spoken with a bag of tricks and witty, quick thoughts to distract screaming children. Her children rarely have meltdowns and even when they do, Supermom keeps her cool. It's like an episode of Full House complete with a life lesson, a hug and inspirational background music. 

I unfortunately, am not always that cool. 

Supermom has a clean home with fresh sheets on the beds and floors without Cheerios. She even manages to not sweat the little messes when they happen, because messes are joyful when children are playing and being creative, right? 

Messes make me crazy. There, I said it. 

Supermom cooks every single night and manages to come in under her grocery budget every week. Meals are wholesome and probably organic and takeout is a rare treat. Snacks are homemade and smoothies run rampant. 

But takeout is my go to. 

Supermom has all of the time. She gets on the floor and always plays, always paints and always runs through the leaves. She's never distracted by the pending to do list running through her head and the clothes hampers are always empty.

My hampers are full. So, so full. 

You see, I am not Supermom. I don't always have it together and my clothes hamper is only empty once in a blue moon. I look forward to bedtime some days and others I am fine with the extra snuggles and I treasure nap times more than chocolate because I so often need a reset after chasing three kids under the age of four all day long. 

I am an imperfectly perfect mother to my children who struggles some days and thrives on others. I am a child of Christ under a father who guides me to do better, be better and find my grace when I'm falling. I am a mother. A mother who kisses away booboos, keeps her cool during middle of the night accidents, wakes up no matter how many times they need me and who cooks (organic) macaroni straight from the box. 

I am a version of just me. Plain ole' me. I am not a version of you or the beautiful moms on social media. I am not all that I want to be sometimes and other times, I am all that I need to be. I am finding my grace when I fail and learning to grow as the days go on. I am learning to find the simple joys in the midst of the chaos and I am learning to imprint the treasures of these long, hard years of toddlerhood. 

I am not Supermom. I am mom. I am a mother. I am a mommy. Sure I appreciate the title of supermom, but I am not a hero among mothers. I am a hero just to my children. I am all and everything that they need while still striving to be more. Every day, I strive to do better for them; not for my status and not for my cape. I am striving to do better for them so they can do better one day too. 

I am a mother. And that's pretty super.

And you my dear mommy friend reading this, you ARE pretty super too. Remember that you do not have to be supermom, because she doesn't exist. You just have to be mom.
