tips for mineral makeup

I LOVE, like LOVE LOVE LOVE, Savvy Minerals Makeup. When it came out last summer I was quick to ditch my old makeup (one of the last things I was waiting to change over to a healthier option) and purchase my favorite colors of Savvy to use every time I wear makeup. I love that it’s free from all of the junk and that it actually helps diminish the appearance of imperfections and blemishes. I have a few tips & hacks for you today regarding our makeup line – have you tried it yet?…

Let’s talk about getting a good night’s rest. It’s so important to our bodies. We all know that lack of sleep can make you groggy and cranky.

kids blends: owie

2 drops White Fir
fill the remainder with your favorite carrier oil (I recommend fractionated coconut oil or Young Living’s V-6 blend)…

10 drops Cedarwood (or Lavender)

premium starter kit

PSK

When I signed up with Young Living, I purchased the Premium Starter Kit. The PSK includes 11 bottles of oil (5ml each), sample packets, empty 2ml bottles for travel or giving away as samples, samples of the antioxidant drink NingXia Red, a diffuser and tons of great information. When I bought the kit I figured, what do I have to lose? Less than $200? Why not try them and see what they can do for our family? So the kit arrived and I was immediately overwhelmed. But as I started reading through some reference guides and asking my bff I became more comfortable with using the oils and trying them for different things….
