12 Days of Christmas Purge

Anytime of year is perfect for a purge! But even more so now, when new things start finding their way to your house... whether a gift from a friend or family member... or one of those gifts to yourself.

I'm joining Alysha for her 12 Days of Christmas Holiday Purge. I'll be sharing my daily purges on Instagram and Facebook. On with the purge!

Day 1: Coffee Mugs

Who does not have too many coffee mugs? I always seem to hang on to a lot. Just in case that swarm of company shows up and a whole pot of coffee (or 2 pots, or 3) get made. Two things that never happen here. It's time to let some of that just go!

I am parting ways this evening today with six coffee mugs. Notice that three of these are Christmas mugs! This couldn't have been a more perfect time to start this purge challenge. Nor a better way to start it, with all the the Christmas stuff coming out of hiding this time of year. These are perfectly good mugs so I will be on the lookout for a new home for them. Where they will be used and loved.

Tomorrow's Purge - Day 2 - Books

If you would like to join in the purge and learn to live with less, leave a comment and stop over and see the hostess, Alysha at An Intentional Future and be sure to keep up with all the daily purges on Instagram and Facebook.

Why I Choose Améo Essential Oils

I've been using essential oils for just under a year. I had never even heard of them or the big brand names (Young Living, doTERRA, etc). It was my little sister who introduced me to them and neither had she had previous experience with those companies. I wasn't even aware what "therapeutic" and "CPTG" meant. My little sister is big in researching and learning truths, not believing whatever she is told. She would even check out thoroughly anything I said. And she should!

We just lost our mother and I have more of a drive than ever before to focus on my health, for myself and my family. And after all she went through I've learned that we HAVE to be advocates for our own health. And if there is a natural way to treat and prevent illness, or control symptoms of disease without the harmful side effects of synthetic drugs, that is the choice I will make. I am thankful for modern medicine and what it can do for us. It saved my mother's life on prior occasions as well. But I love the quote on this picture...

The more I read and learn about essential oils the more confusing it gets. There are those who adamantly oppose internal use/ingestion, while others under precautionary measures embrace it, when it is appropriate. I have read the name Robert Tisserand on many blogs, websites and Facebook pages. I am also taking a course from Vintage Home Remedies titled "Essential Oils and Natural Health". Only from there did I hear that Robert Tisserand, "THE go to source for all things essential oil related was a Massage Therapist. What??? How did he become the go to authority on essential oils? No disrespect intended! I have learned that Traditional Aromatherapy origins were attributed to him. That's all well and good. This type of aromatherapy however relies on a theoretical basis. But when there is Proven, Scientific Evidence that supports (with safety measures followed) internal use. I have to go with the highly Harvard educated, PhD (in Bio-Medical Science) that with a decade of research has developed the science and high quality of Améo oils and has patented proof of the oils at work in the human cells.

Young Living and doTERRA have done a lot to spread the word of essential oils and what they can do. Respect is given to their work. They have paved the way for more research and findings and that's what Dr. Joshua Plant has been able to achieve.

Améo Essenial Oils is the ONLY essential oils with a Clinical Grade. 'Therapeutic' and 'CPTG' are marketing terms to differentiate the two large essential oil companies. There is no official qualification that gives official classifications. Nor can the purity be proven, as the highest quality from Améo will be. Patents have been issued and this is the eve of a great new look at essential oils.

I've never been a distributor for a MLM company before. I've never even signed up to get a discount for myself. I've just steered clear for a few reasons to be  honest. One being a large number of 'those' kind of people seem pushy. But Améo is something I am proud to be affiliated with and share my experience in using. A large number of new distributors (in my group alone) have come from 'the other' companies for a BETTER opportunity with a higher quality product! Have more questions? Feel free to contact me. It's a great time to be on the ground floor of what will soon be the biggest essential oil company in the market!
