Herbs and Oils and Learning How to Use Them

Being the long-time fan of herbs and their uses, I love finding resources that help me get a better understanding of how herbs and herbal products can be beneficial for my use. There is a TON of stuff online about herbs and essential oils and home remedies.  When it comes to herbs and their uses, the FDA is not a regulating body.  In fact, there is no regulating body for herbs or their use – which can leave a LOT of room for misinformation, false advertisements, and ridiculous claims.  (Hello, snake oil salesman.) One reason the FDA has come down so hard on essential oil companies lately, is the claims that are made about “cures” related to medically diagnosed conditions which they can neither verify nor deny.  That does NOT mean that an herbal product cannot cure anything – just means that the FDA cannot say whether it has or has not been proven to be a cure, therefore I cannot make that claim to you in an effort to make a profit by selling you such product.  (Does that make sense?)

Ultimately, Your own health is in your hands.  You decide when and where to go to your medical provider, and probably decided the same thing for your family.  You choose whether or not to follow your physician’s directions and take recommended or prescribed medications.  Hopefully you do your own research about diagnoses received, conditions identified, and medications that are recommended to you.  You should take the time to learn so that you can make an educated decision about your health and that of your family.

If you – like me – want to take charge of your health (and your family’s) so you begin learning about natural remedies. You probably even knew it wouldn’t be easy. But you didn’t expect you’d be so overwhelmed and confused by all there is to learn, let alone all the conflicting opinions.

I’ve had the same frustrations. When I first became interested in natural health, I spent so much time researching. I often had to experiment and guess, and I made mistakes along the way. Here’s the thing, though: I didn’t really want to waste my time OR money. I did my best with what I had, but it was hard work. And that’s why I want to make it easier for you.

Lucky for you, someone had already put together a complete package to get you up to speed on using herbs and essential oils safely and effectively! Maybe you just want help as you dig deeper into the research and learn more advanced techniques once you’ve got the basics down?

And… that package was already carefully vetted for you (saving you time) – at a price that’s way too low to miss (saving you money)?

Introducing the Herbs & Essential Oils Super Bundle!

For six days only, everything you need (and then some) is in one fabulous package, for the most affordable price ever. (Seriously, just wait until I tell you the price.)

This year’s edition of the Herbs & Essential Oils Super Bundle includes 28 ebooks and printables, 4 full eCourses, and 2 membership sites!

  • and so much more!

Plus, it comes with over $60 worth of bonus offers from companies you’ll love (like essential oil diffuser earrings, natural skincare, and herbal tinctures!).

You sort of need to see it to believe it, but the package includes 34 digital products and it’s worth over $560 (but you’ll get it for 95% off)!

Besides being so incredibly helpful, one of the things I like best about the bundle is the price. By offering it for a short time only, the team at Ultimate Bundles is able to give you access to ALL of this… for just $29.97.

Update on my THM Journey

School has started, schedules are shifting, and seasons are changing.  There are days that I only want to sit on my couch and play my phone games or watch reruns of Doctor Who, while sipping my iced Shrinker or Good Girl Moonshine.  Okay, I’ll admit it, there may have been one or two afternoons where this is all I actually did.

I have been getting deeper into the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle of eating and food planning.  The more I do it, the easier it gets.  The more I do it, the better I feel.  The more I do it, the more I realize how much carbohydrates have affected me in drastic ways for too many years.  The more I do it, the more my family is eating healthier and making better choices about food.

But it isn’t always easy.  We have had numerous birthday parties and celebrations and I have not kept myself strictly to the THM way of eating.  I have had cake & ice cream, chips and dip, sugar and fat. Frankly,  I think my favorite part of this plan is the mindset that comes with it.

You can “fall off the wagon” and it isn’t the end of the world as you know it.

In fact, one primary aspect of this plan is the idea of eating or snacking every 3-4 hours.  So if you “blow it” with one meal, just get back on track the next time you eat.  Which is probably the idea behind most food plans, except there is always such guilt tied with the “failure” or “slip-up” that the tendency is to just go ahead and go all the way off plan forever and ever amen with a minor slip.

Anybody else know what I mean?

The fact that my family is eating more fruits & veggies in a regular way is probably my biggest success with following this particular plan.  We rarely feel deprived (albeit the regular requests for something sweet to eat, to which I answer “we have fruit” – not always a good response), and I don’t even think about food as often as I used to think about food.

Which is saying something!

I haven’t weighed myself, but my telltale favorite pair of work slacks are fitting much looser – and noticeably so in the areas I tend to struggle to lose:  belly, hips, and thighs.  (TMI warning:  even mid-cycle!!!)

I have learned that Fat is my friend.  Not the extra weight on my body, but healthy food sources of fat.  I seem to THRIVE when eating protein + fat as opposed to eating protein + carbohydrates.  I still eat carbs here and there, but notice that when I do, the cravings pick up and I don’t feel as good.  I am finding that fat sources are quite satisfying for me (which is why the Protein + Fat = “S” on this plan), and I am rarely hungry for hours when eating mostly “S” type snacks and meals.

For example, one of the best things I’ve made so far is a veggie scramble of sorts.  I just melted 2-3 Tbsp of butter in a pan, sauteed some diced onions, diced sweet peppers, diced yellow summer squash, chopped artichoke hearts, and chopped fresh spinach.  I added about 8 large eggs scrambled with half & half, seasoned with pink salt & pepper – and it was SO very yummy.  My family ate it and didn’t even know about the squash!  (I didn’t even add cheese and it was so filling.)

Finding a balance is key here, and that is really an important part of any journey to better health.  I am tasting the “sweet” in so many (what used to be) every day foods and not enjoying them the way I used to.  I can eat sprouted grain toast with cottage cheese and crushed berries and it feels as satisfying as my favorite cheese danish.

I have more to share – more recipes to share – and want to do that soon.  I just wanted to give a little update before my visit to meet my new grandson this week.  I am over the moon excited about going and visiting my son and daughter in law and their son. He is two months old already I can’t wait to do some snuggling and getting all wrapped up in that new baby smell!

Healthy Can Taste So Good!

I had a doctor appointment last week.  It’s been far too long, as I shared over at Finding Grace and Glory.  But it has inspired some new thinking, some new attitude, and a greater desire to improve my health.  Of course, one of my longstanding health goals is Weight Loss.  Not everybody who reads this blog will have the same struggle, but in an effort to greater health, we all know the Struggle is Real!  That’s why I have to share a couple of things because I am learning that Healthy Can Taste So Good!

I had already been reviewing some diet plans.  During my summer Bible Study, my friend Shelly has been sharing information about the Whole 30 Program.  In fact, some members of the Bible study stay afterwards to talk about that program and learn how to improve our health.  Her personal story of improved health, weight loss, and increased energy and clarity of thinking – spurred me into some action!

While we have dairy-issues in our house (Little Man can’t do dairy!), I know that the rest of us would feel incredibly deprived if we had to lose cheese, butter, half & half, and other dairy items which is part and parcel of the Whole 30 plan.  We can increase our protein and decrease our carbs, but come on!  I gotta have some cheese!!!

I started googling “low carb” stuff and kept seeing “THM” pop up.  “THM” refers to Trim Healthy Mama.  I had read and reviewed the book several years ago, but at the time it was not something I could wrap my brain around!  It isn’t eliminating carbs, but rather SUGAR and the effects that sugar has on the body.  Trim Healthy Mama is a lifestyle that chooses to balance carbohydrates vs. fats, as both are fuel sources for our bodies.  The idea is that when we consume too much of both at the same time, our body shifts a lot of it into stored energy (a pretty word for “fat”) and that contributes to weight gain.

Having started reading the book again, it is fitting together better.  I am understanding how the eating works.  It isn’t just about combining foods, either – it is about striking a good balance between carbohydrates and fats, so your body can burn the fuel you eat, AND dig into that stored energy as well!

Now one of my barriers to jumping in a few years back, is that there are specific ingredients and products suggested by the authors of Trim Healthy Mama (known as Serene and Pearl – 2 sisters who are witty and entertaining).  They were ingredients I had never heard of, and some weren’t readily available.  But given that so many of them are better for people who seek to eat gluten-free meals, a lot of these ingredients can now even be purchased at Walmart or on Amazon.  So getting the ingredients is simpler, and faster.  (Oh and now there is a membership website, too, which you can join and get even more recipes & member resources.  I am not a member, just thought I’d share the info!)

Add to that a number of bloggers who have found tremendous success with the THM lifestyle, and now there are multiple stores of recipes and Facebook groups to participate in for advice and direction!  I have done Atkins before.  I have done Weight Watchers before.  Both were somewhat successful, but not easy to maintain for one reason or another.

Since I am the primary cook for our household, it is important for me to find recipes that my whole family will enjoy – and that are simple to prepare! But the truth is, if I don’t like it, I am not gonna fix it for my family, so I have been trying some things out on my own! Some of my favorites so far have been Big Mac Salad (this was surprisingly satisfying!), Pumpkin Cheesecake Smoothie, Good Girl Moonshine, and The Shrinker!

Purchasing sprouted grain breads, eating LESS bread, and moving towards more whole fruits & veggies is different – but even Greg likes the grainy bread texture better, and we are going to reduce the artificial ingredients along the way!   So far, the kids have tried a couple of the things I’ve played around with – and every grocery trip will improve our chances of eating better and teaching our kids to eat better, too!

My initial goal for the plan is to lose 30 lbs.

This will put me back to my weight the day Greg & I got married.  And then I will set new goals.  I can already feel that some waistbands are less tight and I am feeling better, so I have lots of motivation to stick to it.  I have turned down ice cream, cookies, and crackers more than once and I don’t even miss them!

I will keep writing here and share recipes, plan info, great websites that share recipes & menus, and my weight loss progress, too!

Sometimes I Just Don’t Get It!

So I have been working on a post or two, but have run into something I can’t quite figure out!  (FYI – Blogging used to be so much easier, before it became a “thing” and some of the advancements have only complicated the process…)  I have a post with multiple links – only when I want to post it, the links don’t look like LINKS!  It’s hard to know what to click when the link isn’t obvious, right?

I have been a little bit frustrated and haven’t figured out the problem.  I have googled.  I have checked with my blog theme source.  I am still researching.  So I have been a little bit bummed cuz I can’t post what I want to post!

We did spend most of the weekend working on our yard.  We have a house sitting on just about one acre of land, and most of it is yard – not wooded, no brush, etc.  Although if I want to be honest, about half of it could be considered “field” which I think means it does NOT have to be mowed, but my husband differs in his opinion on this, so we have typically kept it mowed.  The field area is a runoff for a neighbor’s pond, so it generally stays somewhat wet until mid-Summer when things get hot and sunny.  Riding a mower through a wet field, while trying to mow wet knee high grass is just not pretty.  On top of that, our riding mower is having some issues with starting – so it is a bit wild right now.

If we had a horse, it wouldn’t be an issue.  But that would require housing and fencing and we don’t have that just yet, either.  NOT that we want a horse.  I’m just sayin’.

Instead, we worked on the projects we COULD manage.  Greg & I spent time pushing mowers through the jungle, er grass, around our house.  Kids helped do some weeding and cleaning up.  We got some plants and started working on some landscaping around the front of our yard.  We bought 3 Lavender plants for the yard.  I also got my planter with Thyme, Lemon Balm and Chocolate Mint!   We got Curly a small rose bush to learn to take care of, as well.  In between rainstorms, we sat on our back deck and enjoyed watching the birds, bunnies, and squirrels in neighbor’s yards, while our kids played and had a water gun / water balloon fight.  We ate lots of watermelon, got together with friends and feel like summer has already come to stay!

This is the last week of school for the kids.  Mostly fun stuff for them, and my work schedule is shifting back to 2 days a week.  Greg is settling into his new schedule, and we look forward to some blooming fun!

What do you do to get ready for Summer?

Summer Days are Right Around the Bend

My kids have 8 days of school left.  8 DAYS!  The school year has gone by quickly, but the month of May is like a fast-motion movie!  And they have so many fun events going on including concerts, field trips and rally events.  We have even had some slight sunburns from all the time in the sun!  (So I stocked up on sunscreen AND my rollerball of after-sun essential oils!)

Since my work schedule is changing, and so is my husband’s, I am trying to get a handle on our Summer Days.  I laughed when I read a post on Facebook by a mom who said her kids figured summer was all about playing electronics.  I can SO relate to that!  My kids figure they can just spend all day watching TV or playing computers, tablets, or phones – and I am trying to build my arsenal of alternate activities.  I like what MeetPenny did in response to her kids idea of summer “fun”.  She made a special Summer Chore Chart which keeps responsibility first, fun time second!  (If you subscribe to her blog, you can get your own editable copy of this chart free!)

I’ve been printing out things to add to their summer binders, too.  We don’t homeschool, but I have found that my kids still like to do mazes and puzzles without argument – and I like throwing in some educational stuff on the sly while they “play”.  There are so many free printables all over the internet, and I am just waiting for my HP Ink cartridges to arrive from Amazon so I can start printing again!  I have a Pinterest board devoted to summer ideas, so check it out!  I have another board devoted to Printable Journal Pages which I hope to use throughout summer to inspire their creativity and add some fun ways to journal about their days!  I have some pages printed for teaching specific housekeeping skills – laundry, bathroom, etc.

Just a reminder that the Herbs & Essential Oils Bundle Sale ends TONIGHT!  If you are interested in Herbs or Essential Oils in any way – this is a great investment and I am really enjoying so many of the great products in the bundle already!  In fact, I bought a Thyme plant this weekend and am watching some videos to learn how to harvest and dry it.  Thyme has some GREAT healing properties, as well as being a tasty culinary herb.  (I love those multipurpose things, don’t you?)

On an entirely different note, I finally sat down and watched the movie, Temple Grandin.  I bawled through almost the WHOLE movie!  It was out in 2010, but I never watched it.  I had some minor epiphanies about our girl, Curly, while watching it.  It isn’t so much that they are SO alike – but rather, the exploration into Temple’s Autism from HER viewpoint kinda shed some light on a few things we see our girl doing.  Some things are issues NOW because she is getting older and, for example, still doesn’t understand why other people’s boundaries are as important as her own.  That’s just one issue, but we need some help breaking those things down for her and translating those on her terms.  We are pursuing some professional help and hope we can get them going through summer!

How are YOU getting ready for summer?  Do you have any big plans or goals for Summer 2017?

 

Essential Oil Profiles and Two Herbal Ecourses

Because I am an affiliate for the Ultimate Bundles geniuses, I was able to purchase my Herbs and Essential Oils Bundle early.  And I have been playing with it for almost a month.  I have been in HEAVEN!  I have breezed through a couple of the ebooks and will be rounding back around to them over the summer.  This bundle just has so many valuable resources, but I wanted to highlight three specific products.  Maybe you just want to find a couple of home remedies to deal with simple issues that you or your family are concerned with, and you just need some help getting started.

The first product I want to highlight is the Top 60 Essential Oil Profiles by Lea Harris.  This is an app of sorts that is built into Evernote.  (Which by the way – if you don’t have Evernote – you should use it for storing valuable documents, files, and more.  More on that later…)  Lea – my go to safety guru for essential oils – has provided a digital notebook of her Top 60 Essential Oil profiles.  This provides specific information on specific oils – and how to use them safely.

Wait?  You have a phone app that does this for you already?  I have not found ANY phone app that gives me the information these profiles give me.  They are not brand specific, they include dilution rates, and provide safety information for pregnant or nursing women, infants, and pets.  She has done the hard work of studying essential oils and provides information about the characteristics of each oil and suggestions for use.

This product alone retails for $24.98, just $5 less than the purchase price of the Herbs and Essential Oils Super Bundle.  If there is ANY other product in this bundle that interests you, then this bundle will likely save you some money!!!

I also enrolled in the DIY Herbal Apothecary Ecourse almost immediately upon downloading my bundle.  It is included in the family section of this bundle.  It retails for $197 – so if this product alone is enough for you, purchasing the bundle will save you big bucks!  This course allows you to study 25+ herbs in depth and learn how you can use them to help in your home and family.  As much as I love essential oils, I understand that they are only one product derived from herbs – and I am very interested in how herbs in general can be used at home.

This course is BEAUTIFULLY done.  I cannot say how much I enjoy seeing the quality of photos included.  The directions are provided in a simple manner, providing the opportunity to create something that can contains multiple benefits to my health and that of my family’s.  And then there are the recipes.  Oh my goodness! Salves, lotions, vinegars, candies, tinctures, decoctions (think “tea”) and more.  Using herbs you can find in your back yard, or garden pot, or purchase online.

The 3rd product I will highlight is the Herbal Academy Herbal Materia Medica Ecourse (valued at $79).  While similar to the DIY Herbal Apothecary Ecourse, this course focuses more on profiling a single herb in detail.  It teaches you how to research and herb in greater detail and how to build a reference book for yourself.  The printable PDF files provided in this course (which help explain “constituents” and “actions” in easy to understand terms) are a cinch to use and beautifully done.

If you have ANY desire to learn how to use herbs for your health at home, this bundle is an amazing collection of tools and resources to help!  If you are tired of buying OTC meds that don’t always work or cause some not-so-great side effects and you want to rely on more naturally-derived products – whose ingredients you know down to the last ounce – you cannot pass up on the Herbs and Essential Oils Bundle.  This sale ends on MONDAY!  Don’t let it pass you by – You can purchase your bundle by clicking below:

Heads Up! Herbs & Essential Oils Super Bundle Sale

Hi Everybody!  Hope you are having gloriously sunny Spring days like we are in my neck of the woods!  Yesterday was nearly perfect!

Our changing weather has brought on some severe allergy issues for me – I’ve been wrestling with some serious allergens, and am feeling better today than I have in almost a week!  My allergy issues tend to go into sinus infections and I have to keep tabs on it.  I can’t take benadryl because it will knock me out (like literally.  for almost 12 hours.  with half the adult dose).  So I have to rely on allergy medication and some alternative remedies to try to keep me going.

Which is why I am so excited to share the Herbs and Essential Oils Super Bundle with you!  Instead of making a whole post about it – I wanted to create a page for you so you can see all the items contained in the bundle.  Now listen, if you are AT ALL interested in relying on natural and alternative remedies for the health little issues that come along for you or your family – THIS BUNDLE IS FOR YOU!

Valued at about $800, containing 25+ ebooks and online courses, this bundle can help YOU use at-home remedies to help care for your health and the health of your family.  If you ever use any over-the-counter medications, you will probably find great value in this bundle!  You don’t have to become an herbalist to find this bundle beneficial – but I will tell you that one of the courses I’ve been taking {included in this bundle} has lit a fire in me again to learn what I can – not just about essential oils – but about herbs and natural products I can use (and even make myself) for my home and family!

P.S. – I didn’t realize until late Sunday that a blog post I intended to go out on Saturday about this sale, actually got delivered on Sunday!  Blech!  I want to apologize for that.  I did not intend to send anything on Sunday and hope that if you are a mom, you did enjoy a beautiful Mother’s Day!

May Day! May Day!

Well, May just raced in like a dragster, didn’t it?  I can’t believe we are almost HALF WAY through May already.  And my calendar has filled up so quickly because of end of the school year events and programs and paperwork!  How about yours?

It has been a little bit surreal, quite honestly.  The amount of paperwork that explodes out of my kids’ backpacks this time of year is something like a ticker tape parade!  Only I feel more like the cleanup crew instead of the Grand Marshall.  It does help to get a jump on paperwork for next school year, but on top of all kinds of field trips and events – it’s a lot to keep track of effectively.

Last night I sat at the table with my iPhone, my bullet journal, and the piles of paperwork to fill out to get out of my house return to school in a timely manner. ahem.  But thankfully, my iPhone calendar and bullet journal lend themselves to easy recording and reminder setups.  I am thankful for that!  I rely on my phone calendar pop up reminders when I’m on the go – and writing it down in my bullet journal just helps me keep it in my head a little better.

As the school year comes to an end, and kids are antsy to just get summer started already, I am trying to look ahead to make plans for a fun and educational summer.  Y’all – I am NOT good with the heat and since we don’t have central air conditioning, there are days that we retreat to the master bedroom (with the window unit) to watch movies or read or play games.  I find that I can actually do a LOT of homework when the kids are watching Angry Birds for the 47th time.  (and i love the banter in that movie, so it’s entertaining for me, too!)  I am gathering some printables and resources to put together Summer Binders for the kids again, and will share more about that before school ends.

One of the other things I’ve been putting together in recent weeks, that I hope to spend time on throughout the summer, is an Herbal Journal.  Officially, some would call it a Materia Medica, but since I am incorporating a few different things, I’m just calling it my Herb Book.

My interest in herbs began when I was in high school and read a book that talked about using herbs as remedy for something or other.  I got hooked.  The thought that a “weed” in the yard could pose relief for some condition’s symptoms was incredibly intriguing to me.  I found myself checking out more books about herbs.  Yep, even the herbal encyclopedias.  My grandparents resorted to natural alternatives, so they would talk about remedies they grew up with – and of course, my mom & dad shared some things too.

  • Like horehound candy for sore throats.  My dad told me that’s what his mom would use.  I find that completely amazing.
  • Like raspberry leaf tea during the 2nd or 3rd trimester to help tone the uterus and prepare for childbirth.
  • Like lemon for sore throats and colds.

If you, like me, enjoy using naturally-derived products in your home or for your family, then you might be interested in The 2017 Herbs & Essential Oils Super Bundle.  I was able to get my hands on my own bundle already (because I am an affiliate) and it has been one of the most interesting, most educational bundles I’ve ever seen from The Ultimate Bundles crew!

The Herbs & Essential Oils Super Bundle contains 16 e-books & printables, 10 e-courses (which are blowing me away), 3 physical bonuses and 1 digital bonus.  I can’t tell you the specific titles I am so excited about (or about price) just yet, but if you think you *might* be interested, just click this link and you can provider your email to be NOTIFIED when this bundle actually goes on sale.  (Entering your email does not commit you to purchasing anything, it just lets you be notified the moment that the bundle is available for purchase).

Some of the topics in this bundle include:

  • How to create your own Herbal Journal and Herbal “Medicine Cabinet”
  • Creating your own naturally-based skin care
  • Parents guide to dealing with cold and flu season naturally
  • Using herbs in cooking,
  • and so much more…

 

If you have ANY desire to incorporate herbs and essential oils into caring for your family, I can tell you that the value of this bundle stretches way beyond the purchase price.  The sale starts Wednesday, May 17, and as soon as I can share more details and product titles, I will do it!

Autism Resources *Updated*

Rather than post a long series of links in a blog post, I decided to add a *NEW PAGE* to the site.  I have found some great resources already, but as I continue to do my own research and connect with more moms and dads, I want to be able to keep things simple for anyone who might come looking for links or resources or just blog posts they might be able to relate to some time.

You can find the new resource page HERE.  When you are visiting the site at any time, you will find the link to the page under the “Raising Kids” tab in the menu bar!

Autism Awareness month has come to an end, but my desire to inform, educate and build connection with other parents who care about family members with Autism has no end!  I will continue to research and learn and support my girl, and find support that we need to help her grown into adulthood – and continue to share resources I find with anyone else who might need them!
