I know you’re all like umm, everyone and the mother uses and sells essential oils now and you’re probably right. If you’re like me you might have been reluctant to try them because you’re afraid of using them wrong and or just slightly overwhelmed by how many purposes they serve. I tried essential oils a few years ago and then took a break because I forgot to implement them (go figure), but I’m happy to say they are BACK in my LIFE! I’ve been using the oils from the Young Living Starter Kit for the past month and honest love how they make me feel, how they clean my home and do a lot of other really cool things. Below is a list of some of the ways I’ve added them to our lives + super exciting news… if you want to try a starter kit you can purchase one from my friend Kristen Pope and she will be donating 50% commission to Nika Collective.

Nika Collective is a non profit organization my friend Kori Rider started in 2011. Kori had been traveling, studying, and living all over Latin America, but when she started investing time in Nicaragua, she decided to plant roots in a small village outside of Managua with hopes to make an impact. She partnered with the local Nicaraguans in the community she served and asked what the biggest needs were. The constant feedback was that the women needed empowering and the best way to do that would be through creating jobs. Single moms with little opportunity were having a very difficult time providing for their children and child abandonment was always a threat. Head to nikacollective.com to shop their beautiful life-giving products and possible partner with them to start a nutrition and daycare program funded through Casa Nika.
This is my favorite oil because it smells like Thanksgiving and Christmas wrapped up in one bottle and it supports a healthy immune system. I use it as a cleaning product and pretty much on everything because its all natural. I turn into Oprah cleaning the house…. Toys -“You get a spray!” Bath – “You get a spray!” Poop on the rug – “You get a spray!” “Everyone gets a spray!”
Stress Away + Lavender:
I made the “Stress Away” oil into a roller and use it everyday on my wrists to promote calm and peaceful feelings; it smells amazing and helps diffuse tantrums in my brain and my toddler’s.
Young Living Starter Kit:
You get a lot in the starter kit including this diffusing. My favorite things to diffuse are lemon, peppermint, purification and thieves.
Lavender + R.C.:
Mix a couple drops of these two oils in the bath for a sinus cleansing and relaxing bath.

So buy some oils, you’ll love them and let’s help fund Nika’s nutrition and daycare program for the beautiful families of Nicaragua!
