Frequency (the measured electrical vibration of something) is often a hard concept to grasp. I have studied it pretty extensively over the last few years because understanding how frequency affects us as people, is key to vibrant health. Literally, it can make or break you.
Recently, I stumbled across a new genre of music termed 🌿"florganoleptic music". 🌿
It's fascinating! Literally, science meets plant meets musician.......
You can read more about it here: https://www.cosmicknotmusic.com/
........or listen to a better explanation along with a little music composed by humans and plants😍:
All I know is that I just learned something new and amazing today about plants!
Frequency.... it's real. Singing plants, yep. They're real too😊 . This little evergreen is belting out the blues! (ha ha! must be a Northern Lights "Blues" spruce 😎)
Happy Monday friends!
Which plant juice (essential oil) makes you feel like singing? 🌿🎶🎶🎶🌿🎶🎶🎶🌿

How did we sail (or freeze 😬) thru February so fast? Well, here we are in March 2021 already!
If you are already a Young Living member, take some time today to adjust your Essential Rewards order so you can get the freebies that are calling you name this month.... there are some goodies for sure! Rutavala and Copaiba are staples at our house. Free is a beautiful thing ( and it means I can get that new tube of YL Savvy mascara and brown multi-tasker I've been needing 😍)!
Here's a little background on the freebies this month from the science side:
👉Blue Cypress: we don't hear about it often...... but I've learned that whenever you see a "blue" oil, sit up and take notice because it's power packed. Not only does it smell AMAZING (one of the reasons it's often found in perfumes), it supports a healthy inflammatory response..... and friends, there is a BIG difference between a healthy and unhealthy inflammatory response 🔥. Do some digging on it...... it also helps create an inhospitable environment for viruses 😉.
👉Idaho Grand Fir (formerly known as Idaho Balsam Fir) is also well known for supporting a healthy inflammatory response. Do you feel like you can breathe more easily when you are in an evergreen forest? Crisp and clean...... but there's more to it than that! These trees have powerful constituents (another word for natural "ingredients") God put in them to help us breathe more easily. Our forefathers (rather, fore-mothers most likely!) used to make syrups and poultices from this tree to help when lungs were not functioning as they should. Do some digging..... our ancestors were some smarties even tho they didn't know the science behind it all!
👉Rutavala is one of my faves! Normally I buy the premade roller bottle to help me sleep at night. ( I Swipe it across the base of my big toes for a great night's sleep). The disadvantage of the roller bottle is that it's premixed with carrier oil and you can't drop it into a diffuser either. This 5ml blend is undiluted, so you can get your relaxation in many different forms! Make your own roller bottle (that's my plan!) or use it however you prefer. Rutavala tends to be seasonal, so it's not uncommon to find it out of stock later in the year....... if you love it, and it serves you well ..... be sure to snag it for free! I believe a good night's sleep is priceless 😴!
👉Copaiba is another of my faves. Frankly, every home should have this one on hand at all times, especially once you realize what it can do. It has a very "quiet" fragrance, but don't let that fool you. It too supports a healthy inflammatory response for everything from teething to sore joints to inflamed tummies or lungs. (Do some digging on this powerful and stealthy oil!)
👉Lavender.... what can I say? It's a Swiss army knife in the oil world. If you aren't sure which oil to grab, 99 times out of 100, Lavender will do the trick! And 15mls on this one friends! ......because you can never have too much lavender in the house! Can I get an Amen??
👉Clary Sage.... it's not just for gals (although gals, it may become your BFF if you need a little assist during "that time of the month" or your spouse or significant other says you have bit of inner dragon * during certain times of the month.)
Historically speaking, this plant was used to draw thorns and splinters from the skin. I don't know about you, but thorns and splinters still exist.... just ask a farmgirl or farm guy 😂. Did you know.... Clary sage also plays a role in supporting the immune system, calming digestive disorders, and supporting a healthy inflammatory response (especially on the skin?...... perhaps adding a couple drops to your DIY skin serum may be in order? 😉)
All of this goodness is free with qualifying orders.... see the graphic for deets.😍
What's your fave? How do you best use it? Let's help each other out and drop a story about how one of these oils has helped you or your family in the comments below. I might even send someone who comments a little happy mail * just in time for St. Paddy's Day!
Happy March Everyone!!

Who needs to relax, recenter, or basically just chill out?
Haley Jensen, Senior Manager of Young Livings’ Global Training and Development shows us how to not remain victims of our own lack of self-care. We can learn to control how we respond to stress.
There are practical tools to help you align yourself, reconnect with your body, your mind,and your spirit. Incorporating essential oils into these practices creates a synergistic effect.
#1. Conduct Daily Check-ins in your own sacred space!
What do I need to lean into? Say “no” to? Spend my time? What do I need to nourish? Evaluate your body, your mind, your emotions.
Sacred Frankincense Grounding Sacred Mountain (bottom of your feet, back of your neck, or diffuse)
Reflecting on your goals? Envision
Alignment or clarity? Cedarwood
Joy and togetherness Joy
Strength & security White Angelica
Motivation Motivation, Awaken, or Envision
Passion Ylang Ylang
Positive mindset Lemon
Positive energy shift Abundance
#2 Meditating allows you to gain perspective and focus in the present, increases self-awareness, and decreases negative emotions. Depending on what you meditate upon, it changes and rewires your brain. Sit & Breath - align yourself with your values.
Oils to use to enhance your meditation practice:
Northern Lights Black Spruce
Peace & Calming
Cedarwood (especially if you are feeling scattered)
#3 Bring positivity! Smile!
This simple practice releases a cocktail of neuropeptides like serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins. Smiling for just 20 seconds will also raise your frequency!
Essential oils for positive vibes:
#4 Clean up your environment from negative emotions!
Feelings Kit will help you keep your positive mindset and discard the negative.
For a serious reset use Release or Palo Santo on fingertips of your pointer finger and draw them from your forehead up over the top of your head, down through the back of your neck and out to the tops of your shoulders. Follow with White Angelica.
#5 Gratitude! Gratitude releases dopamine. Our brains can only focus on one thing at a time, so thinking about things for which to be grateful is a way to train your brain to look for good things.
Write a love letter to yourself with everything good about you! A gratitude journal is a wonderful way to worship our Creator too!
Gratitude essential oil blend or pick your favorite essential oil to help you think of more beautiful moments.
#6 Daily Movement! Just 30 minutes will increase your energy and help you process all the things.
*Exercise will increase: your endorphins, mood, oxygen, immune system, self-confidence
*Exercise will improve your sleep, digestion and connection with your body.
To optimize those workouts by relieving the sore muscles:
CBD Muscle Rub (you can pair with: PanAway, Camphor, Clove, Helichrysum, Lemon, Peppermint, Tea Tree, or Wintergreen)
OTC Pain Relief Cream
🔥 Remember, an empty lantern offers no light!
Self-care is the fuel that allows your light to shine brightly!
Someone here needs to hear this good word from my friend Jen Weir. She is the bomb with both words and knowledge!
Know what else is the bomb? The essential oil Kunzea. Have you tried it? If you have a bottle of it at home, but haven't used it, you may find you have a hidden treasure after reading Jen's words.
Can we talk about energy for a moment? Or, a lot of moments...
According to Mr. Einstein, everything is energy. Yet in many circles, particularly those of the more faith based nature, we shy away from energetics, deeming it woo woo, weird or, gasp, of the devil.
My soul, who do people think created energy?
enter exasperated eye roll....
Have you ever been so drawn to an oil but not sure why? Or better still, have you ever given yourself the space in your day to play with the oils, use something you've never tried or even, possibly dare open one that you've been saving for good? Hoarding is so 2020 you know.
Such was the case with me today and Kunzea. Remember her?
This precious oil was drawing me in, it literally jumped off the shelf and of course I began digging in.
The interesting part to this experience is that I have been asking the question- why won't my shoulder heal? To be totally transparent, I had struggled with severe pain for eight long years. Ever since my baby girl was in the NICU this pain has been unbearable at times. I don't talk about it because frankly drawing attention to dis ease is not my style. Yet today, I was done. Enough already.
Emotional releasing, yep, check.
Using CBD or any other pain essential oil blend, check check.
Prayed for healing, check check double check.
Short of smoking weed to numb it, I'd say I had done all the things.
End of rope officially reached.
Knowing what I do about energy I had to ask the question abotu why I was drawn to this seemingly obscure oil. There had to be a connection to needing this one today and this incessant pain.
One of Kunzea’s unique features is that it can diffuse and transform deep emotional pain, that has hardened in the body. Where there is pain the body, there is always an emotion attached to the pain. Kunzea assists in releasing emotional pain and in transforming the immediate shock of accidents.
The emotional pain attached was the burdens others have heaped on my shoulders.
The opinions of this THE way, rather than simple A way. Can anyone else relate? Just me?
So, there's THE way to raise your people, not just A way.
There's THE way to hear from God, not A way.
There's THE (newest) way to eat, not A way.
There's THE (again, newest) way to build a MLM biz, not A way.
There's THE way to love your neighbor, not A way.
There's THE way to respond to blatant tyranny, not A way.
You guys feel me? It's heavy to even type all of this.
Let's just say my entire adult life has consisted of others telling me every way I am doing x,y,z wrong, and possibly, sinning.
Being type A, wanting to do it all correctly, yet having the personality of non compliance was beginning to take its toll. hence the should and neck pain...
You see, this specific may not be your story, and I pray it's not. Yet some of you have pain, real physical pain that you take meds for, oils, weed, whatever your bandaid is. But healing is possible. It's emotional. 100% of the time, it's an emotion that has hardened itself in your body and needs to be chipped away. It won't happen overnight. Or I don't know, maybe it will. It's really anyone's guess.
But I can tell you, once I began to speak truth and stop believing other people's truth, my should started to loosen. It was literally the weirdest freakiest thing evah. But it's truth.
The cracking I heard when I stretch is at an all time minimum.
I've got a little more to go, a little more truth to tell myself, a little more business to do with Jesus and whole lot less business to do with other people's opinions. But I'm on my way- me, Jesus and a little oil called Kunzea.
Let me ask you, is there an oil you have been drawn to? Before this did you know that your body/energy is trying to tell you something?
I don't, just try it. Emotion talk is my jam and not everyone's cup of tea. But I swear to you, not having physical pain feels so much better than having it. I mean, you do you. But I just thought you all should know.
What do cholesterol, baling wire and duct tape have in common? 👩🌾 #thelifeofafarmgirlpharmacist I know, weird question right? Here's the thing.... I don't know what we'd do around here on the farm without duct tape and baling wire when we need to patch something up in a pinch. (I can make one heck of a hoof bandage out of duct tape too!)
Cholesterol gets a bad rap 99% of the time because the real culprit is inflammation, yet cholesterol gets thrown under the tractor as the instigator. Cholesterol is just doing its job of patching up the super inflamed areas within the vascular system. Like a piece of duct tape, it will patch that spot right up. When you apply more and more and more cholesterol (aka duct tape) onto a chronically inflamed area in the vascular system, you will eventually end up with blockage. The cholesterol was just doing its job, while the inflammation was ignored. An inflamed vascular system is painless until you have that heart attack or stroke, which is why it's important to have labwork done to find out what your inflammation markers look like. When you evaluate cholesterol at the same time, both can be addressed if needed.
And, just like duct tape, there is good cholesterol and bad cholesterol (have you ever used a really cheap "off brand" of duct tape 😬 #yougetwhatyoupayfor ). We typically think of good cholesterol as being HDL and "bad" cholesterol as being LDL, when in fact, there are different types and patterns of LDL that are actually really healthy. The insurance companies rarely allow your doctor to run those tests tho, so you are left thinking that all your LDL is bad.
There are other factors in play of course, but the jist of it all is this..... every single cell in our body requires cholesterol to function properly, especially when it comes to our nerves and hormones, and it behooves us (if we want to function well) to know the full truth of our cholesterol, our inflammation, and an important, but little recognized genetic marker called lipoprotein a.
The lab I work with is having a quick sale right now on all of these tests. If you are interested in finding out what the "inner workings of you" look like, I would be honored to help you walk thru and understand your results!
Here's the link for the lab work, and you can also book a complementary 30 min consult on my website for a comprehensive walkthru of the results: https://yourlabwork.com/adv-cholesterol-panel-0221-afl/...
(note: testing available in all states except New Jersey, New York, Maryland, Rhode Island and Arizona)
It's not always easy, but it will always be worth it!
Truth!! A wise and happy person will find their tribe of good people. Have you found yours? If you feel that you are surrounded by negativity, perhaps it's time to readjust the edges of your teepee. 😉
This last year has been a year of growth and learning. God is my rock like never before and the good people in my life have risen up like cream to the top. You know who you are... all of you. God is faithful and He is about to use His good and righteous people in mighty ways!
Just learned something new this morning.
"Peace" is mentioned 429 times in the Old King James version of the Bible. The more modernized the version, the less often it is mentioned. The newest versions of the Bible only include the word "peace" around 230 times.
I see a correlation here.
Happy New Year friends! What's got your fire lit for 2021? It's going to be an amazing year!
In the meantime, here's the promo info for our Young Living January freebies for qualifying orders. Winter time can really do a number on our skin, and I'm thankful for all of these oils!
Two of the most well known essential oils, 💧Frankincense and 💧Myrrh, pretty much owe their claim to fame to three wise men over 2000 years ago. Now that’s some kind of successful advertising campaign! 😉
I’ve been celebrating this Christmas season by walking thru a 25 day devotional, “The Soul Felt its Worth”. Each morning has been like an Advent calendar for me as I learn history and relevant Bible verses and theology expressed through 25 traditional Christmas carols.
As I write this, I’m on day 11: “We Three Kings”.....written in 1857 by American clergyman John Henry Hopkins Jr. Spoiler alert…. The Bible never put a number on the wise men who travelled to see infant Jesus ….. Nevertheless, this carol is where we get the 3 kings/wise men from!
Although it’s considered a Christmas hymn, “We Three Kings” is really a poetic tribute to Jesus’ whole life, with Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh representing some very key attributes:
“Born A King on Bethlehem’s plain
Gold I bring to crown Him again
King forever, ceasing never
Over us all to reign.”
Gold (referenced in verse 3) has been a sign of royalty, wealth, and power since nearly the beginning of time. Giving the gift of gold to Jesus was an acknowledgement to the birth of the King of Kings.
“Frankincense to offer have I
Incense owns a Deity nigh
Prayer and praising, all men raising
Worship Him, God most high”
💧Frankincense was used in the temple as an incense and anointing oil, and was a symbolic acknowledgement of God and spiritual leadership. (You will be learning so much about the historic healing properties of Frank and Myrrh next week! Stay tuned!!❤ )
“Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume
Breathes of life of gathering gloom
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying
Sealed in the stone-cold tomb.”
💧Myrrh had many historical uses, including that as a key embalming agent. Its name comes from the word ‘marar’ which means bitterness. For myrrh oil to be attained, the tree’s heartwood must be pierced/tapped allowing the gum resin to trickle out in red droplets called 'tears'. The gift of myrrh symbolizes Jesus’ earthly a bitter death and subsequent burial. .
And finally, the phrase “Guide us to Thy perfect Light” in verse 2 leads us to the truth of the matter. The kings/magi-astronomers were looking for something far more significant than the bright star they were following. They were looking for THE Light. ☀️
God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. ~ I John 1:5.
Enjoy the journey this coming week friends!
Hey there....thanks for stopping by! This is me (Liz James)... an eclectic mixture of holistic (and organic) farmgirl meets pharmacist. It's a synergy that works well as I speak truths and dissect fact from fiction. If you're looking for healthier living options, you've come to the right place!
