Top 5 Parenting Mistakes To Avoid

I have been a parent for almost fifteen years now.  I realize that doesn't make me an expert but it does give me some insight into this parenting gig.  After all, I have managed to parent three children out of the "child years" and into the pre-teen and teenage years.  I know I've made mistakes and plenty of them and I'll continue to make more.  As parents, we need to realize this and give ourselves a break.

After all, just when you think you have things figured out - your kids change and move on to the next stage.  So when you're struggling to understand what's going on it can be helpful to look back and assess what it is you're doing to see if maybe you need to take a different approach. 

Here are 5 parenting mistakes we should try to avoid.

Cooking with Essential Oils Part 2

Everyone is talking about essential oils these days.  Essential oils can either be used aromatically, topically or internally.  In this 3 part series of posts, I will be sharing ways you can use essential oils in the kitchen along with some delicious recipes.

For part one of this post - click here.

The Economical Choice-Vitality Oils

Each drop of essential oil is loaded with concentrated aroma, flavor, and therapeutic value and can be a much more economical choice than buying expensive fresh or exotic herbs and spices that will go bad before they can be fully used.

Dill oil, for instance, costs just 19 cents per drop. You might use 1-2 drops at a time of dill oil in a salad dressing or marinade, which costs much less than a bunch of fresh dill that will go bad in a week. And your bottle of Young Living Dill Vitality essential oil will last for years as long as it’s stored with the cap tightly on and out of sunlight and extremes in temperature.

Cooking with Essential Oils Part 1

Everyone is talking about essential oils these days.  Essential oils can either be used aromatically, topically or internally.  In this 3 part series of posts, I will be sharing ways you can use essential oils in the kitchen along with some delicious recipes.

It’s About Nutrition

We live in an era where foods are high in flavor but devoid of nutritional value. In fact, artificial flavors common in processed foods and derived from petrochemical byproducts have been implicated in allergic reactions, dermatitis, eczema, hyperactivity, and asthma!

Most of us are looking to eat healthier, but we don’t want to skimp on flavor. How many reading this can relate to that?

Herbs and spices in our kitchen cabinet can add a lot of flavor and health-promoting properties to foods, but they can lose potency relatively quickly.  I can think of several spices in my cupboard right now that I’ve had for more than 3 years. 

Did you know that you can enhance the flavors of your food in a fun and healthy way using all natural products that are delicious, long-lasting and health-promoting?

Of course, I am talking about essential oils, more specifically Young Living’s Vitality Line.
