My wise friend.... she knows her stuff.
One of my mottos is this... You can pay the farmer or you can pay the pharmacist. You'll end up happier and healthier paying the farmer every time. Promise!!

How many people believe that gaining weight is the result of eating too much and not exercising enough?!
What if I told you that some studies show obesity has a lot more to do with the quality of your foods, than the quantity of the foods you eat and the amount you exercise?
I recently attended a lecture focusing on the study of obesity in relation to poverty. It was shown that people who face poverty are more likely to be overweight and obese. Isn’t that backwards?
The observers looked at an affluent Indian tribe who were healthy and lean during the prime of their affluent lives when they were growing food and hunting, and followed up 30 years later when they had been pushed off their land, so that farming and hunting was scarce. It was observed that during these times of famine their entire dietary lifestyle shifted to one loaded with carbohydrates.
The diet full of carbohydrates created hormone imbalance which led to insulin resistance.
Insulin is the mechanism by which fat is transformed into usable energy.
High insulin levels accumulate fat.
High Glycemic Index carbs like sugars, breads, pasta, cereal, white rice are the driving force of insulin resistance and obesity.
Filling your plate with more vegetables, fruits, lean protein and healthy fats may help to balance hormones and insulin levels, to reduce the likelihood of insulin resistance.
Quality wins, every time. 💯
I've been working on a class about blood and blood typing with a couple of dear fellow educators. As I do my deep dives, it occurred to me to wonder why insects don't have red blood (does anyone else's mind go to places like this😂?)
I won't keep you in suspense if you are now on the edge of your seat with curiosity. Unlike mankind, the blood of insects does not transport oxygen. .... therefore no reddish colored hemoglobin is needed.
Love your blood friends. Don't take it for granted and keep it clean and healthy or it cannot nourish the rest of your body.
Plant those seeds friends. I love having friends, mentors, and even people I don't know throwing seeds my way.... I try to keep my own soil fertile to allow for personal growth.
Meanwhile, I hope and pray I'm able to pay it forward by sowing seeds for others.
Either way, huge blessings result!
Receive the seed. Be the seed. Every day!
(Well written words from a sweet and gifted friend:
If it looks like a duck, and it walks like a duck.....( and its here on the farm ), it's Edna!
Good morning and Happy June! Can you believe we are already almost half way thru 2021? 😍
I'm excited to see these June freebies personally, and here's why...
300 PV tier
Retail value: $185.53
Peace & Calming essential oil blend, 15 ml
• We just added two new large rescue pups (teenagers really) to our farm crew, which changes the pack dynamics on our farm. ALWAYS, the goal is to have zero skirmishes within our dog pack of 6, so we use ALL the tools and skillsets to make sure this doesn't happen. Diffusing Peace & Calming friends.... and applying to to their collars and ears. I've been told this works nicely on kiddos too 😍, and I know it works well on we adults too!
The blue tansy in Peace and Calming just makes everything better! Hint: blue oils are great for skin and emotions!
250 PV tier
Retail value: $91.78
Aroma Siez essential oil blend, 15 ml
• When it's not raining (we've had a FLOOD here.... like almost nonstop for a month), I'm out in the garden pulling weeds like a crazy woman. 👩🌾 If you've ever pulled weeds by hand for 4 hours straight, you'll know how important Aroma Siez is to your muscles!
190 PV tier
Retail value: $47.37
Citronella essential oil, 15 ml
We've been using those nontoxic mosquito dunks like crazy in an effort to keep the mosquito population down out here, but frankly, there aren't enough mosquito dunks in the world to address the amount of standing water we've had, so the mosquitos are literally taking over the universe (in our area anyway). Solution? Become a walking diffuser!
Make a DIY outdoor spray blend of Citronella with oils like Rosemary, Tea Tree, Myrtle, Clove, or Lemongrass and spritz it on clothing as needed.
(pro tip: I also put a couple of drops of lemongrass vitality in a capsule and take it twice a day especially during summer months)
You could also add a drop or two of Citronella to your YL Sunscreen and solve two problems at once with application!
Bonus Essential Rewards: Eucalyptus Globulus essential oil, 15 ml
Lung health! ...... do your research friends. Good stuff!
• I totally equate Eucalyptus (and rosemary and lavender) with a spa day (a rare rare luxury)...... make yourself a mixture of these three and add to your dryer balls or make a spritz bottle for your pillow. You'll breathe easier and life will feel that much better wrapped in healthy goodness!
And as always...... free shipping with any order greater than 100 PV.
Have a beautiful day!!

I'm a few days late on wishing everyone a wonderful World Bee Day! We had bees for several years and kept them organically. Tragically, we lost our two very strong hives to an outside toxin. Quite literally, thousands of bees died overnight😭😭😭.
Someday, we'll keep bees again. For now, we are relying on a few wild hives to do our pollinating. Thankfully, they are bountiful on our farm.
Did you know that for every 2 out of 3 bites of food you eat (provided it's REAL food.... not the synthetic junk you can't pronounce), you can thank a bee?
15 years ago, I wrote a children's book on bees.... it's "nature fiction"... designed to teach kids and adults alike about the lifestyle of bees. In honor of World Bee Day, I'd love to bless someone with a copy of "Ebenezer the Claustrophobic Bee". Comment below, and your name will be placed in the drawing.

One man's weed is another's tool 💡😍. Interesting reading. Note all the other names Canadian Horseweed is called. Good stuff!
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? 🌿🎶🎶🎶🌿🎶🎶🎶🌿
The beauty of life is this..... wonderful things happen regardless of chaos or calm. Meet Justice. A curious thing about this little guy..... we had just about decided that his mama was sterile and we were going to have to let her go. 3 months ago I noticed that she appeared to be preggo, but I didn't want to hold out too much hope since she's kinda "big boned " and has shown false signs before. Rosie continued to show small signs that got bigger and more obvious, so I knew we had turned a corner with her... and goodness was surely coming. Last night I knew we were less than 24hrs from go time.
Justice was delivered early this morning.❤
Keep the faith friends. Sometimes when you are ready to bail out, that's when God shows up.
Have a beautiful day!
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!
