Essential oils have been in our home since 2014. I was previously part of a competing company and increasingly became dissatisfied with them. I felt they were never open enough about their farms and distillation process. They didn't promote the Seed to Seal promise or even close to as Young Living does. I felt it was more about selling than about the products.
I have used Young Living since 2014 also off and on. I've always felt more comfortable using theirs and knowing I could instantly look up where this oil came from and when. I've seen countless videos of their harvesting, distillation and touring of farms. I sincerely and genuinely love their products and enjoy sharing them knowing that they are keeping a Seed to Seal promise.
I'm excited to begin a new journey and to be a part of a beautiful community with Young Living! It is all about natural health and wellness in our home. Essential Oils have the beautiful benefits of enhancing this in our home and day to day lives.
I'll be sharing bits about our essential oil journey here on the blog occasionally and more day to day over on IG @lavenderbitsessentials. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me and no pressure to purchase! I want you to fall in love with the oils as much as our family has. You can read more over here.

1. Mason jars. I love the simple look these bring and the versatile ways you can use them! I have been using mine for flowers, filling with coffee grounds, flour for cooking and more. I might be painting some in the future to use even more.

It wasn't even 8AM and all the pillows were in the family room and the boys were using them as a DIY trampoline. I had just finished breakfast and was ready to call it quits. Forget school today. Just go and take a bath. Leave the house. It's all over.

I've been happily distracted the past few months by the precious cargo in our home. The boys have finished another school year together and it was good but we also learned so much about learning styles I can't wait to share about.
I've felt recently as if I have gotten in a good groove as a mom of two young boys who are no longer in diapers and don't need an extra bag of goodies and clothes to carry everywhere along with no stroller! We are saying goodbye to our apartment soon and that has brought on a little extra cleaning and decluttering. Even if you are practicing a simple living in your home, as we have for the past six years, you still collect stuff. We aim to purge about every few months.
I've decided to rebrand and speak about what I love to really talk about here on the blog which is
Also about how to integrate all of these together to bring you authentic, real and messy content. A life you can relate to hopefully!
I'll be sharing more content about it through Facebook and Instagram. So follow along and share with your friends who might be interested in any of these topics!
