Beverage Trailer Renovation Part 2

Beverage Trailer Renovation Part 2

So we added a few things like a set of baby moons. I want to paint the wheels white, I think that will show up better. We need to get the galvanized tubs and will probably need to make stands for them. When that’s done I’ll do a final post.

Since we added plugs we are considering setting a generator on the tounge and this will plug in. If we are at a venue that had an outlet nearby, we can just plug into any 110 outlet. I took a cabinet door from a set I rounded up from someone who was redoing their kitchen. I did a chalkboard finish so we could add a menu or use it for an announcement board. It actually opens as well if you need so air or just to add an open feel.

The baby moons, soon well paint the wheels white.
Had to add tail lights, now we need to get it registered.
Beverage Trailer Renovation

Beverage Trailer Renovation

I’m bad at going in order with my photos, but I’ll try my best. I usually don’t sit down to post until the job is already completed, oh well.

We started with a tiny $200 enlisted trailer that want even 5 ft tall inside. After several bumps on the head a asked my husband if the roof could be raised and well………

The original beast

I originally intended to use this trailer at vendor and market events formy essential oil business. Like I said you couldn’t stand up in the thing, we kept bumping our heads putting things in and out of it. As you can see in the pictures there were bolted rivets right in the middle and all the way around. I started removing them……..

Bolts removed and we took off the top half.

Then I started thinking this could be something…………….I envisioned an ice cold beverage trailer. My idea came after I saw an add for the Pour Horse Bar. You can see it at and it’s kind of like this..

I put that in there so you can see where my idea is going. I’m not going to do coffee, I just see a cold beverage unit. Galvanized tubs filled with ice to hold your own beverages, soda, beer, wine, even kegs. Whatever you want to Pitt in it for your guests is your business, we just provide the ice!

Birthday, reunion, bachelorette party, family gathering, the event ideas are unlimited. So how am I going to put this together? My husband’s a welder by trade so 4 steel posts and let’s raise the roof!

Then I had a pair of 100 year old doors I got very cheap. They used to be in the Karnes County Courthouse. They had several cigars of paint on them that needed to be removed first. We needed to make sure they would fit first. My husband had an old piece of piano hinge, so here we go.

Perfect fit, just needed to take about 4 inches off the bottom.

Now to take them off and get rid of lots of paint. I wanted them stained. Boy, that was days and days of stripping and sanding.

Chemical process of paint removal.
They turned out quite well, stained and coated with outdoor poly.

I found an old Ford door on facebook and it was a rusty old thing. A bit of rusty removal and paint. It fit perfectly!

Primed for paint

I decided we might have a need for electrical plugs. Maybe for lights or a margarita machine or two!

My husband is good at painting and well, he has all the stuff to do it and we had white paint.

I had an idea for a roof, a little rustic, rusty metal and wood, and an a-frame style.

Then it was time to put the roof on. Went smoothly, we had to add a bit of trim and a soffit to finish out off. Then on to complete the inside with a floor I got for free and wood siding I got for free as well. Most of the wood forThis project was free from some pallets I took apart so I can’t complain. The floor was from a lady renovating her bedroom and she have me her oldstuff. It was nice, really heavy duty vinyl wood look planks.

Jan 3, Update

Why oh why did they use so much caulking. We sepent hours scraping and grinding and spraying on paint removers to try to soften up all the stuff. Rolled up the siding to fix and straighten up the flooring. The flooring was put down using 1/2 plywood, a nice sanded type too, however, they didn't square up the front so it made the back out of square. Of course we already squared up the front, now just to square up the back and we can seal her up again.


You can also see that the flooring was sticking out way past the side framing. this had to be cut of and squared up. We had to do the same to the front left corner of the trailer as well, it was way out of square. All the caulking was overkill on this little baby because there was plenty of butyl tape applied before these moldings were tightened down.  Now we need to scrape all of that off as well and get a new roll.  But, we expected that.

Now that is a much better fit! A little bit of grinding to straighten things up and we are about ready to strip all this molding and put it back on. First we need to address all the little holes covered by tape all over the darn thing.  I guess they thought tape would be a good fix, however it did nothing but cause us a headache. It wasn’t just taped, but a coating of roof patch was laid under all the tape, that stuff is a mess to try to get off.

That ugly spot right there is where they had put some of the roof patch and covered with a 4 inch wide tape. It was crazy trying to get that tape off, why they did this we don’t know. They taped up every seam.

Then  there  are  all  these  holes.  Holes  where  they  just  decided  to  poke  some  type  of  sharp  instrument  in  the  siding  to  make  way  for a  wire  or  something.

This is what it looked like inside when we had the back sheet of siding rolled up. Well, things are coming along, let’s just say, slowly, but steady wins the race correct? After much discussion we have decided to just gut the old gal, remove all the windows, and mouldings, get rid of all of the caulking that goes on forever and ever and put her back together.  We will be putting on a new coat of paint and probably painting the inside white. 

So, you can see a bit of the inside here. They did do a good job of insulating with 2″ foam board. However, they sprayed expanding foam into every nook and cranny they found, again overkill, like the caulking.  A lot of the expanding foam cause more harm than good. It spread out siding in places it didn’t need to be pushed out, made things move out of square, made the door severely out of being level so much that it rubbed on the bottom and had a 2 inch gap at the top. Thankfully we were able to straighten that out after we scraped out a majority of the spray foam.  That stuff is good when used properly, but you can’t spray endlessly into cracks and crevices because that stuff travels and will push out anything loose or improperly fitted.

What every woman needs to know about FOLATE and FOLIC ACID

What every woman needs to know about FOLATE and FOLIC ACID

Pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant?? What you need to know about FOLATE and FOLIC ACID

Things you should know! First of all I am not a Doctor nor do I proclaim to be providing any medical advice.  What I am going to explain is purely information I have found while using GOOGLE. I highly suggest that you look it up for yourself and do your own research into FOLATE or it’s synthetically produced counterpart FOLIC ACID.  FOLATE, is purely Vitamin B9, and a very important nutrient needed in our diets, especially pregnant or wanting to be pregnant women.  Vitamin B9 is found in leafy greens, broccoli, and dried legumes such as beans and lentils.  This key nutrient is used by our body to make DNA and other genetic material, produce new cells, and support nervous and immune system functions.  DID YOU SEE THAT? Make DNA?? so that is why this is so important during pregnancy?  I don’t know, but makes sense to me.

However, do your research and always ask your doctor, practitioner or midwife before taking any supplements or dietary nutrition.


Why you wouldn’t choose FOLIC ACID

Folic acid is the synthetically derived vitamin from the whole food form of FOLATE.  FOLIC ACID is not natural and does not naturally exist in nature.  Like I mentioned previously FOLATE is Vitamin B9, remember that.  Research has determined that synthetics, like FOLIC ACID, can be metabolized in the liver.  However overtime the liver cannot synthesize FOLIC ACID, especially in high concentrations.  This obviously can cause stress on our liver, right?  Are you still with me here?

Pregnant women or looking to become pregnant are always advised to increase their intake of naturally-occurring FOLATE by consuming more dark leafy greens, broccoli, spinach, dried legumes and lentils.  Another way is by taking the synthetic FOLIC ACID.

Here’s an easy way to get good, food sourced FOLATE

You can juice or eat a lot of leafy greens as well as eat a lot of dried legumes and lentils.  Or may I make a suggestion here?  Did you know that Young Living has a couple of products that already contain FOLATE and are infused with essential oils and packed with other great vitamins and other good for you stuff?  Look at the ingredient list of Young Livings Balance Complete:


This would be a great addition to anyone’s daily healthy nutrition regimen, I mean look at all that great stuff in there!  The taste is great too, because I think it tastes like vanilla cake mix, or raw cookie dough flavor.  And did you notice that FOLATE is listed at 33%, you can’t beat that right?  Oh but you can, and look at Young Living’s Super B product!


There you go, 100% of the DV of  FOLATE right there along with a whole butt load of other good for you stuff!  There, I finally posted this.  I’ve been mulling it around for quite a while and felt it was time to finally get the info out there.

and if you want to look it up for yourself, which you should for your own peace of mind, here is a link because ya’ know, like I said I am not a Doctor.  Another good thing to point out is that we ALL need to become informed, knowledge is wonderful! here is another good link from the Mayo Clinic.

Quit relying on everyone else to give their opinion on things, even Doctors only know what they know, and what they don’t know might be helpful for you and worth finding out.  In the past I have heard of one doctor saying one thing and another saying the opposite, so you know what?  Do some research.  I hope this helped you out!

If you want to purchase your Young Living products so you can get your FOLATE naturally, please reach out to me so I can be of help.  Here’s my email: [email protected] or if you just want to head on over and place an order you can go to my link here , however I’d really like to make a suggestion to become a member so you can get the wholesale price, there’s no cost to join.  I can help you with that, and get you on our Essential Rewards program called ER so you can get your Balance Complete and Super B coming every month.  We all know when you are pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant you can get busy and very overwhelmed with life, so our ER program is a perfect way to make sure you get your FOLATE while you need it.  You can cancel it at any time, but, here’s a little secret…………while you are on the ER program you will be earning reward points so you can get free product!  Yep you read that right, FREE PRODUCT every month!

Let me show you how you can end up with with one or both of these GIFT BUNDLES for free!

Italian dinner decor

Planning a spaghetti dinner? Here is what I did for an Italian dinner. Under is a red/white check basket liner from Party City. It’s in the summer decor. Empty cans of tomato sauce were repurposed as a pot to hold fresh basil, parsley, oregano and rosemary. The room smells herbaceous! Added a few sunflowers for color. I collected empty and full olive oil and balsamic vinegar to set out with them. Didn’t take much time our money for this theme. I’ll re-plant all the herbs in my garden after the dinner is over.

FACEBOOK is causing me to have nightmares!

FACEBOOK is causing me to have nightmares!

This is all meant to be funny, but, in reality I have had some repeated nightmares lately and I have to be frank; I blame FACEBOOK!  You know all those posts about the good old days.  Pictures of Ward and June Cleaver sitting around the table with a meme saying “remember when you used to eat what you were served?” 8 track tapes, rotary phones and old black and white televisions.  Yes, those things are giving me nightmares.

Take the 8 track tape for instance, you remember, those things getting stuck inside the player.  Your very favorite music group getting stuck inside the player only to be driving down the road and pull it out only to see the endless crumpled yards of tape coming out, oh the horror.  Put on the brakes!  It’s got to be saved, yes that old Tammy Wynette tape singing D-I-V-O-R-C-E must be saved.  Gently now, gently, pull out the remaining tape ever so gently only to find that it has and end that’s torn and tattered.  Oh my heart, now it’s broken, the tears are falling and maybe just maybe you can save it, fix it or at least try. My goodness that thing cost you $2, by all means tape it together, glue it or whatever it takes, but, fix it for sure.  It cost you darn near an hours worth of work.

Yes I have that dream.  My favorite 8-track tape getting ate up in the player.  In my dream I pull it out and the tape is never ending, it just keeps coming out and coming out until I am suffocated in a pile of that dreaded tape media.  It has filled my entire car from floor to ceiling and I can hardly breath, it’s around my neck, I can’t see, I can’t breath, and then I wake up.  Sometimes I have the same type of dream involving a cassette tape and player, but hose could be fixed.  How many of you ever took them apart by removing the tiny screws and literally taping them back together and winding them back up? Con’t tell me you never did that.

Then there is that old TV post coming up all the time and they ask you who had to get up and turn the TV channels for their parents?  Hey that was a real thing, it was serious.  I always dreaded being the kid who had to be the TV channel changer.  WOW, we only had 13 numbers, but only 3 or 4 of them actually worked if the weather was good and you had a fancy tall antennae on your roof.  We never had one of those on the roof.  We had aluminum foil or an old wire hanger, and yep I was a good channel conductor I guess because I often had to hold the wire or the foil to get better reception.  I don’t miss that, they used to play the National Anthem at midnight then all you got was the snow and awful white noise, or maybe a buzz and a row of color blocks.

But, here’s my nightmare; my dad asks me to change the channel and I get up and turn it and the knob breaks off on a click that does not have any reception, OH THE HORROR! Do I turn around and show him what I’ve done? Do I run and hide under the bed leaving the knob lying on the floor?  No, must get tape, yes tape fixes everything. Hey I fixed my 8-track and cassettes with tape right? Well, tape doesn’t work, I start to cry and the nightmare is over. It’s a nightmare just wondering if I ever got it fixed, LOL These are things my kids will not have the joy experiencing, what a shame.

Then there is the ROTARY PHONE nightmare!  Oh, the rotary phone, the party line and the kind voice of an operator.  I remember playing with the phone when I was little and accidentally, well not really accidentally, but accidentally on purpose dialing the operator.  Hey there was a really nice lady who answered on the other end.  Way back before caller ID wasn’t it fun to call people and hang up, or say funny things like “is your refrigerator running?”  Then telling the person “they better go catch it!” But, my nightmare, yes, this is my nightmare.  Now you may not know what a party line is so let me explain.  If you could afford it you could have what they called a private line.  This meant you could pick up the phone whenever you wanted and make a call, no problem. However, most people didn’t have the money or didn’t want to spend the extra to do that so you might have a party line with maybe 3-4 people sharing the same line.  You might pick up the phone and hear your neighbor talking.  Or when you are talking you just might hear the faintest click and that would indicate possibly your neighbor had picked up the phone while you were using it. I remember if you held your finger on the clicker and only let it come partway up you could listen and hear them faintly talking and they didn’t know, ha, ha, ha.  Now don’t tell me you never did that?

So, to get back to my nightmare I have a party line and I am constantly listening with the clicker half open. I hear the neighbors talking and I write it all down.  I take the information and write a book about everyone in the neighborhood, but, I don’t use the real names.  The horrible part is that they all know it’s about them and they all know that I wrote the book and they come after me.  They chase me in the dark, it always has to be dark when you get chased in a dream right? Oh, and it’s cold, I’m barefooted and they are chasing me with bats and rope because they want to tie me up and burn me.  Now that is horrible.  My heart is literally beating out of my chest, I am out of breath and I have even woke up unable to breath or move, and I’m cold and crying! Oh, the nerve of those neighbors! I never see the faces and they don’t say anything, however the fear is real and I just know they are going to tie me to a stake and start me on fire.  I can be really dramatic I guess. But, the fear I feel when I wake up is so real. I’ve never got caught in the dream, but they get close enough that I can feel them reaching out and touching me.  Barely grabbing at my clothes, yet they aren’t close enough to actually catch me.  Writing this makes me laugh out loud right now, I am literally cracking up at myself. Seriously!

So please, can I just ask you all to stop posting those pictures of the good old days.  Not really, I enjoy them and the memories they bring to mind.  My nightmares? Well I don’t know why I have them, I guess they could be worse.  I could be getting chased by a mummy or a vampire. I could be the last one alive in an episode of the Walking Dead.  Maybe you could do me a favor and post pictures of cute fuzzy animals. No, on second thought maybe not.  My next nightmare would probably be about cute animals chasing me and gnawing me to death or something. Maybe post cooking videos! Yes, nice cooking videos. Well, as long as I don’t have a nightmare about getting my hand caught in a mixer or accidentally in the blender, no, on second thought not cooking videos either.

Last but not least I want to post a picture of a man named Rod Sterling. Rod had this voice, if you heard it you would know it was him. He had this show called the Twilight Zone which was not necessarily scary, however, it was always bizarre and in a scary way if that makes sense. Anyway, this show was something I did not like to watch in the dark. It always came on at night, and it was usually late when things are quiet and you can hear the squeak or crack of an old house shifting with the wind or with the changing of the weather. Windows were loose and would rattle in the wind, branches would make shadows of people trying to scratch their way into your house. And your own shadow would always be lurking in the hallway, ready to jump out and scare you when you went to bed. Yes, I loved Rod’s voice, it would send chills down my spine and make the hair on my arms and the back of my neck stand up. I would get goose bumps walking to my room with my eyes closed and feeling the walls to find my way. Yes, and I would always have a nightmare after watching those old black and whites. I really thought those nightmares would cause my death, but that was over 40 years ago and I survived. I often watch them now on some of the old movie channels and I laugh at myself remembering how scared I used to get.  Here’s to you Rod and your very scary voice.  Oh yes, they used to show people on TV smoking.  It was kind of cool and I guess considered sexy too!

This scares me to talk about, it’s really hard

This scares me to talk about, it’s really hard

I want to be open and raw here.  I’ve not really been me for quite some time.  I’ve been trying to do this and that and the other, everything EVERYBODY else has been doing and saying.  trying to replicate this, replicate that, and it’s slowly been killing me, the real me.  I don’t even know who I am anymore.  I’ve paid for classes, read books, sat through countless hours of training and I just don’t feel like anything has clicked.  Why, Why? Have I just not found what feels good for me, what feels natural, does that even exist?  Maybe nothing out there is my thing, maybe I need to find my own thing, find what works for me.  What worked for me in the past before I started looking to gurus and paying for instructors to tell me do this and this in these steps and this will happen?

I get so frustrated when I read about the latest success and how it was achieved and then I do the same thing and nothing happens, nothing!  what is wrong with me? Why can’t I be like her or him or this one over there? I am wasting my time, spinning my wheels trying to figure that out.  All I can do is try I guess, NEVER trying will NEVER get results that’s for sure.  So what was the struggle with my latest endeavor you might ask?  Well, it was so out of my comfort zone, I struggled like a mouse trying to get the cheese to the end of a maze for a free piece of cheese.  I wanted the result, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do what I needed to do, I couldn’t go through the maze.

The thing is I need to write some emails, I needed to write them in a way that made people feel like crap, like their lives were crap and going to just continue to keep getting crappier unless they contacted me and got some help.  Help with what you might ask, well help with depression, exhaustion, insomnia, headaches, bad health, unexplained weight gain and even problems keeping relationships at home and at work, kids out of control, marriages headed for divorce, emotional imbalances and more.  It was part of my job to convince people that all of this was just going to continue to get worse, maybe they’d lose their job or end up in divorce.  That was the hard part.

I wasn’t comfortable telling people their lives were crappy and horrible.  I had a really hard time trying to tell them that things were just going to get worse not better.  I am the type of person who likes to candy coat everything.  I like to look on the bright side of things; even when there really isn’t a bright side.  I’m always the one to encourage, the one who is looking and trying to find something good in everything and now you want me to tell people they are living a horrible life and it’s probably going to get worse if they don’t change? I found it really hard to write things that really spoke the truth.  Their lives are crappy, they are not going to get better, not unless they make some changes.  They are going to continue having trouble on the job, they may lose their job.  They are going to continue to have problems in their family and often in the marriage or other relationships and it’s possible they may end up in a divorce.

What if I could tell you that this is all a side effect of TOXICITY?  Toxins in our food, in the air, in personal body products, in the environment, even toxic relationships.  Call me crazy, but a toxic relationship can stress us out and did you know that same stress can often result in sickness and disease? When our body is stressed our body naturally wants to help out and if we are overly stressed or become stressed too often or for longer period of times our body’s natural defense to help us out of that stress actually backfires.  It works so hard on that stress that it can’t help other parts of our body, it can’t keep up, it has to let something else go in order to try to keep up with our stress level.  when something else goes, guess what?  We get sick, our immune system becomes weak, we start to get depressed or fatigued, we suffer from insomnia.  Not getting enough sleep causes other problems, it’s an ongoing cycle.

See what I mean; this is serious, I don’t know how to wake people up to the fact that if this is already sounding like your life and you are saying this is me, right now, I have insomnia, I’m sick, I am frustrated and depressed, I can’t handle things like I used to, I feel like anxiety is controlling my life, what is wrong with me?  It’s a real fact folks, I hear this more and more from people. I do have answers and I do know what is causing a lot of this.  It’s call TOXIC poisoning.  Toxins are lurking in places you would really be surprised to find.  We are poisoning ourselves pretty much every time we light up a candle, every time we buy our favorite perfume, when we spray our homes with all those favorite smells we like, plug in those fragrance outlets, spray that can of mountain fresh air or Hawaiian breezes.  One of the number one toxins in our homes and work places come from artificial fragrances. Artificial fragrances are some of the most harmful chemicals ever!

Artificial fragrances can be attributed to headaches, migraines, inflammations, respiratory issues, hormonal imbalances which result in infertility, emotional issues, depression, inability to cope, anxiety and more.  There is so much more out there that is harming people wreaking havoc on our health and people are just buying into all of it and getting sick. The only ones who profit from this are the Doctors and pharmaceutical companies; makers of more TOXIC chemicals I might add.

So, I have made it my job to try to bring awareness about all of this to people.  How do I best do this? I don’t know.  I took the class that instructed me to send out emails and try to make people feel like crap and I was the one who felt like crap. It was a horrible winter I might add, long, grey, and cold. I would literally stare out the window and find myself just blank, and feeling depressed. Depressed because I did not feel l have been doing a very good job to get my message out there. To get people to notice and to pay attention.

I post about how well I feel and how healthy I have been since I kicked all those TOXINS out of my home and away from my family. I talk about how I have managed to pretty much live TOXIC free in my home and how I have ditched TOXINS for more natural plant based products.  I talk about my DIY and how i make most of my beauty products like shampoo, facial products and more.  I posted about a new line of TOXIC free mineral makeup I started using last summer and how most of the make up sold over the counter is so highly toxic.  I’ve written plenty about TOXINS, where they hide out and what they do to us.

I post about it on my blog whenever I can.  I have a Facebook page and a Secret Group where I share all the things I discover about TOXIC CHEMICALS.  I talk about it on Instagram, Google+ and in person and I still don’t think people are listening.  I really have got to the point where I think no one is really listening and I don’t know how to get them to listen.  What is really disheartening is that I feel like I talk a lot about TOXINS and making healthier choices a lot.  Then I see a friend post something about not realizing how they need to get TOXINS out of their life and they are on the next fad of a pink drink, a meal replacement or a new exercise regimen guaranteed to help them lose the weight forever. I want to just scream, what am I doing wrong, have you not been reading my post, do you not see me, hey there, yes you haven’t you been listening? I don’t know what more to do?? HH–EEE—LL—PPP !! Trying to make people feel bad about their lives just isn’t natural for me, yet I want to help open up peoples eyes to all the harmful things out there and how simple it is to avoid them or get rid of them.  If you knew a better way to do something wouldn’t you want to tell everyone?  I know of so many simple ways live better, and healthier and I am sad that I really feel like no one is listening, no one takes this stuff seriously.  Don’t you want to know?  I sure did, I found out and now I want to let everyone else know about it too.  What do you suggest is the best way to get what’s on my heart out there so people will listen?

Like I said, trying to send out emails full of scare tactics is not me, it scare me to even write them.  I start shaking and get all sweaty and I can’t seem to even make my fingers type the words.  What can I do, I need suggestions, I need help. Like I said, I’m scared to write those emails and send them out.  This is really hard for me to talk about, I hate admitting I’m scared.  I want to share what I know about TOXINS, I want to help people, I know how it is to be so full of TOXICITY that I was sick.  I know how it is to experience fatigue, insomnia and anxiety. I used to live in a sea of toxins, I used to be really sick all the time.  Now I’m happy to say I have not seen a doctor or been sick in over 6 years, I’m medication free and feel the best that I ever have. I want to share all of this, I just don’t know how. I don’t want another guru to tell me what to do. I want some people who are really experiencing effects of TOXINS to start asking me how I did it.  I want people who feel like crap asking me for help, I want to help them to feel better, I want to walk them through it, I want to see them feeling better not crappier. But, I don’t know what to do, I’m scared, I don’t know where to start, how to do it or what type of approach is really going to hit peoples hearts. I really need some feedback on this I really do.

Chinese Noodle Soup with Sliced Leeks

Chinese Noodle Soup with Sliced Leeks

Chinese Noodle Soup


6 cups broth, can be beef, chicken or vegetable

2 – 3 servings dried Chinese egg noodles

2  eggs

1/4 medium onion, chopped

1 leek stalk

4 cloves garlic

thumb size ginger piece

1/2 cup chopped cooked beef, shrimp or chicken if desired

salt and pepper to taste


To prepare broth wrap ginger and garlic in cheese cloth and drop into pot, add sliced onion and salt and pepper to taste.  Bring to a boil, then simmer while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Boil water and prepare chinese noodles as per instructions, drain and set aside. Boil two eggs, peel and slice in half, chop meat if desired, set aside. Take the leek stalk and cut off the leafy top, cut into thin strips lengthwise, set aside. Take the larger bottom section of the leek and slice at an angle, place immediately into simmering soup and remove cheese cloth containing ginger and garlic, you can toss it now.

Place noodles in bowl, add meat if desired and half an egg, ladle hot broth over the bowl, sprinkle a few of the leek strips over the top.  Salt and pepper to taste.  This is an easy and quick recipe.  You can used left over meat from a previous meal to add in, I don’t like wasting food.  this is something I might make after I’ve cooked a chicken or had steak the night before and just couldn’t eat it all.  Or you know that time you cook almost all the shrimp however, there are a few left in the freezer?  Grab them and throw them in delicious soup.

Besides being the leader and forefather of growing, harvesting and distilling essential oils, this company also provides oil-infused products for your personal care, to keep you healthy and fit and for the home.


To begin they have the widest selection of pure essential oils and blends. Essential oils can be used aromatically several ways. When used aromatically, essential oils can purify, deodorize and freshen the air or provide a spiritual uplift. This can be achieved by rubbing 2-3 drops between the palms and inhaling deeply several times.  Adding a few drops of essential oil into a bowl of hot water and covering your head with a towel can also be a good way to breathe in oils deeply and slowly. Using your favorite diffuser in your home, car or office can be another great way to use the oils aromatically.

Many oils are safe and very beneficial to use directly on the skin.  This application is what we refer to as NEAT.  You can place 2-3 drops of essential oil directly on the desired area and massage in using the Vita Flex Points, Reflexology Points on the hands, feet, ears or spine or directly to the area itself. Repeat as desired and always follow label directions for dilution instructions.

Young Living has a specific line of essential oils under the Vitality label that are approved for ingestion. Be careful when taking oils internally and always do your research first.  Internal consumption can be achieved in various ways.  Several drops inside a vegetable cap, 1-2 drops into a glass of water, juice or NingXia Red, in yogurt, honey or in milk. You can also add a few drops of oil to meals when cooking.  Always read individual product labels for usage directions.  Unless an essential oil is labeled for consumption, NEVER INTERNALLY CONSUME.
