With farm life, clean and white can be hard to come by! I was just visiting Christan Morales's team page and saw this recipe. I am so going to give this a try!
From Lindsay Tuttle:
Bleach is a household favorite, but it has so many disrupting chemicals in it that this is an amazing equivalent! A friend of mine shared this, and I made it a few months ago and added Thieves Household Cleaner to it!
I found my gallon jug at an antique store, but any glass jug will work.
3/4C Hydrogen Peroxide
1/4C Lemon Juice
15 drops Lemon Essential Oil
3/4C Baking Soda
1/4C Thieves Household Cleaner
Mix all ingredients in container. For laundry, use 1C per load. Also use in tubs and sinks as you would regular bleach!
Paul Harvey.... do ya'll remember him? He had the most amazing wisdom. I pretty much put him in the same category as John Maxwell.... a great communicator who was entertaining, informative, a source of positivity, and ultimately a teacher to all ages. #hisworksaretimeless
We used to listen to him every single morning as my Dad drove us to school. I re-heard this monologue of his today. Indeed, in the case of this one, I'll go so far as to say his words were prophetic.
Take a listen. If you remember Mr. Harvey's radio show, it will take you back as it did me. If you don't know who he is, listen anyway. He's like your best grandpa. Smart, witty, kind.... and able to tell you the truth without making you feel bad or inferior for not knowing it already.
And here's....... the rest of the story.....
Food for thought this Sunday morning. I love CS Lewis... his works are timeless.📚📚📚
God alone numbers our days. He knows how many hairs we have on our collective heads. Knowing him, and allowing the Holy Spirit to live within you is what instills the profound peace that passes all understanding.
Conversely, the devil is the master of chaos and fear. He is on the prowl mightily these days. I have found (in my life), that the devil tends to focus often on attempting to bring people back to him just as often as he does equipping those who are already in his clutches.
If we remain silent during times such as these, we give credence to the devil's work. When we all reach Judgement Day, we will be held accountable for our belief and our works, but we will also be held accountable for our silence when we should have spoken up for what is true, what is right, what is pure, what is lovely, what is righteous, what is joy filled, what is peace that passes all understanding, what is kind, what is good. All these things come from God alone. #GodsArmy
We are weathering a spiritual storm that is identifying those who walk in the cloaking of the Holy Spirit and those who are listening to the chaotic voice of the devil, and because we have free will, we are given that choice.
Do you feel you are in a place of chaos or peace? (Your emotions will reveal the truth of that to you.)
If you've not yet found your place of peace, I urge you to seek out someone who you can identify as a beacon of light. Ask them for help
.. seek out mentorship. 😘 This peace is available to anyone who pursues it.
If you already have the peace that passes all understanding, keep on shining my friend... the world needs all the bright light it can get!🙏💖
Do y'all know Dr. Jim Bob Haggerton? Don't let his country accent fool ya😉, He's one of the smartest dudes I know, and he's a sweetheart to boot!
We all need more oxygen these days... Dr. Jim Bob gives us some great tips! Broccoli and Turmeric..... who knew!
I cannot count the number of times I reached out to YL corporate asking for a "stand alone" Vitamin D supplement in the last 6 years.... and I was beyond excited to see Super D as a brand new supplement introduced at convention this year! #theylistentoourrequests
Did you know that over 75% of teens and adults in the USA are Vitamin D deficient? It's such a sad thing.... especially given the role Vitamin D plays in our body (It has over 400 known roles!).
The role we are focusing the most on these days is supporting and enhancing the immune system. If your vitamin D levels are low, the odds of catching something goes up considerably. 😷 Raising your vitamin D levels will do far more to protect you or those around you than a #clothmask (which is actually more harmful than helpful if you have followed reputable research).
Super D! Add it to your Essential Rewards shopping basket and give your immune system some added love! 💗
🌞 Item #28972 / 120 tablets /$29.75 for YL Members
🌞 Tasty oral disintegrating tablets ... chewable or dissolve in mouth
Having a YL membership gives you the tools you need to have greater control of your family's person health and wellness needs.
I would be honored to serve you as scout, guide, and navigator on a personal level if you're ready to take the plunge!

We all know that vitamin D is needed for a healthy immune system but do you know how it helps? We do not want certain cells hyped up and or active. If the body needs T cells for hand to hand combat make sure those T cells are mature!
George, you were only 36 years off. How did you know? 😢
Why isn't anyone protecting these beautiful and irreplaceable monuments to history?
Without history as a guide, we are doomed to repeat it.
I keep thinking about the lifelong emotional restlessness that so many adopted children feel because they don't know or understand their own history. By removing our country's history.... erasing it from existence.. we can expect the same thing on a massive scale... it's yet another piece of the plan to fracture the minds of Americans.
"They" say "they" are coming for statues of Jesus next, despite the fact that we all know Jesus had an olive complexion given his heritage. Will we just stand by and let this happen too? I've had my conversation with myself, and am willing to stand strong for what I love and believe in. #Godandcountry 🙏🇺🇸
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.
I have had no desire to write or share for the last few weeks. 😥 The world 🌎 is going nuts and my reaction in a situation such as this is to retreat to the safety of the peace that is my immediate world. It’s a perfect time for that really….. garden 🌿 and berry 🍓 season being what it is. #farmgirllife
I do most of my writing early in the morning, when it’s quiet before dawn. Most mornings I dive into the word of God 📖before I do this tho…. My true quiet time.
I heard it said recently that “at first you read the Bible, but you’ll come to a point where the Bible instead begins to read you”. The last many months have definitely been a reflection of the later.
Yesterday's message was centered on healing and it was one small simple phrase:
💗“ Go up to Gilead and get balm” (Jer 46:11). 💗
I spent yesterday going about my chores and errands meditating on this simple piece of a verse.
Today begins our virtual Young Living Convention. We all wish it were in person as it always in in Utah, but CV19 took care of that for us. 😥 It’s a time of learning, fellowship, community, and celebration that about 40,000+ of us look forward to every year.... literally a family reunion atmosphere.
Meanwhile, cities around our country are burned and looted, and innocent people are killed, and people who are lacking the fruits of the spirit (love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control) are martyred and praised. What an upside down world we are living in.
💗“Go up to Gilead and get balm”. 💗
This little phrase packs so much meaning, especially now.
The “balm of Gilead” is an actual plant. It is known as one of the oldest and most respected herbal remedies……. Commiphora gildeadensis.
🌿It’s known to work beautifully as an anti-inflammatory. Lord knows our country could use a little less inflammation.
🌿It’s also excellent for burns, eczema, psoriasis, and blemishes. We’ve got some serious issues with burns and blemishes in our country….. The world is watching us fester.
🌿It’s an analgesic. The pain our country is going thru has affected every.single.person. We need a God sized aspirin please…. Stat.
🌿It’s a helpful diuretic. Wash us clean from this sin wracked world, oh Lord.
🌿It soothes the stomach and digestive tract. Did you just 💁♀️because your stomach has been in knots as we watched the destruction of man and property? #metoo
🌿It’s a powerful expectorant, helping purge mucus and phlegm, and relieving respiratory symptoms. A nod to the ‘rona perhaps? It is quite interesting that the antiviral Remdesivir (being tested against CV19) is manufactured by a company called Gilead Sciences. #whoa
But man will never be able to compete with God as the ultimate physician. Remdesivir can be quite hard on the liver…. the organ which coincidentally houses emotions of anger and bitterness.
🙏📖The Balm of Gilead is also representative of our salvation thru Christ. It is spiritual medicine…. able to heal all who believe in Jesus so that we may walk in that freedom and forgiveness.
Our country is blighted and sick..... in need of massive healing.
“Is there no balm in Gilead?” is a rhetorical question. The balm IS there and our Physician is there to administer it if only we ask for it.
Our God is one of light and love. Darkness, destruction, and evildoing is not of Him. We have free will to choose what we desire: illness or absolute health.
Hand me the balm please, 💁♀️ I think we need vats of it!
Philippians 4:8-9 "And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—, put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”
Peace, love, and balm,

Dr. Proctor is not some imaginary man. He's a long time local physician in our area. God bless him for speaking out and speaking truth. Ya'll, we need to be sharing these truths and uniting against the political machinery that is driving this planned herding of our country and world.
You are my amongst my heroes Dr. P! Thank you for speaking out in truth!😘🙏🇺🇸
June 18th was our first day of Young Living's convention, and it did not disappoint (even tho we weren't all together in one place, since it's virtual this year). I think you'll love the humor in this short little 2 minute clip as much as I do!
Enjoy! xoxo~ liz
(PS: I'll post a little info about the new products launched yesterday in the comments)
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!
