Blood Sugar Wars

It’s time for us Ninja Moms to take a stand in our bodies against roller-coaster ride blood sugar levels. Too much sugar in the blood, diabetes. Not enough sugar in the blood, hypoglycemia. And none of it is any fun, although it may turn our lives upside down. NingXia Red is part of any serious Ninja Mom’s arsenal against physical chaos. We do not have time for physical chaos, we have enough chaos generated by…

Breaking News Peppermint Testimonial

I got up this morning and stretched the wrong way, causing the muscles in my upper left ribcage to pull and then cramp. Screaming. Pain. I literally stumbled downstairs where I knew my sick daughter sleeping on the couch had control of the Peppermint oil to put on her tummy. Smeared it all over the area, and I kid you not –Instant RELIEF! This Ninja Mom is back ready for service.

Release Blend (Oil A Week)

We carry negative energies on our liver. Kinda makes sense, since the liver is the place that cleans out all the “junk” from our bodies. Release essential oil blend is good for exactly that – releasing – anger and frustration from the liver to support normal emotional well being.  Release blend is one of the most powerful oils supporting emotional well being.

Teenager Attitudes Reversed!

Yup, you saw that right…attitudes reversed, mom of teenagers experiences relief…. film at 11:00 pm.  A Young Living Distributor with 3 teenage boys, all with special challenges, Sylvia was wayyyy past due for some respite from her daily circus of teenage attitude along with the other all-too-familiar traits of Planet Teenage Boy (PTB) citizens. The air was tense, the parents were tense, the teenagers were busy eye-rolling, nit picking at each other, not listening (“Huh?!”),…

Peace & Calming (Oil A Week)

I’m willing to take a stand when it comes to the notion of Peace & Calming® as a major part of my ninja mom arsenal to create an environment of harmony, agreement, calm, serenity, composure, cessation, order, pacification, reconciliation, truce, unity, congeniality, contentment, hush, lull, quiet, relaxation, repose, rest, stillness, and tranquility (I do so love thesaurus.com.) Is there anyone out there who would be opposed to these qualities in their life? Kids, teenagers, dogs,…

Common Sense: Get some

My favorite essential oil blend of the moment is Common Sense. I’ve got teenagers, and this stuff does a world of good towards protecting the Earth from their lack of, ahem…. discernment,shall we say.  Kids too, dare I say sometimes spouses, and a significant other or two?  Teenagers with significant others who seem to be a few sandwiches short of a picnic? Get a diffuser, now. Run it all the time in the common areas…

Carpet nightmares: Chewing gum edition

Tip—Stuck Gum “I found a chunk of gum stuck to our hall shag carpet. It had been there for several months, dried but thoroughly stuck to the fibers. I dabbed Thieves® Household Cleaner on a cotton ball, then rubbed it on the gum and let it sit for a minute. The gum literally just lifted off the carpet. You can rub your fingers across the treated spot. There is no way to tell there ever…
