There's no time, like the smelly time



Recently, I posted a short video onto the Busy Women's Health Facebook page where I did a reveal of what was in my January Essential Rewards order from Young Living.  In that video I stated that, while I love all the products, one of my current favorites is the Young Living Deodorant.

Now, part of the love is because I have a preteen boy.  If you don't have one of those, or never have, count your sinus's blessed and your gag reflex lucky.  I prayed for a boy and BOY did I get one.

Pepe Le Pew ain't got nothing on this kids post-any type of exercise musk.

I had already started to make the switch and my husband had already committed to the switch. I do the shopping, (he didn't have a choice), but unlike other times I've switched up his products, there was no backlash.  Actually, he just made the switch and told me when he needed more.  Huge Wifey Win!!

So when it was time to introduce B to deodorant, there was only one obvious choice.

Young Living Aromaguard Mountain Mint Deodorant.

First, he can read the ingredient list and knows what they all are.  Coconut oil, beeswax, vitamin E, Lemon, Rosemary, Clove, Peppermint, Eucalyptus and White Fir Essential Oils.  And I know what exactly is going onto and into his system, especially over major lymph nodes.

Lymph nodes are throughout our entire body and help our immune system by collecting viruses and bacteria, among other things like fluid and waste outside our blood stream.  Sounds important right?

So why would I ever want to put something on my child that I can't pronounce or know what it is?

That just creates extra work for our body system that can result in infection, inflammation and possibly worse.

A little bit better of a breakdown is that this deodorant can actually help aid in cleansing the lymphatic system.  Double win!

Here's how the essential oils in this deodorant do more than keep you dry and smell free.

Lemon EO: Helps support the body functions of the circulatory and digestive systems.

Rosemary EO: Helps support the body's immunity response and blood components.

Clove EO: Helps support the body function for the digestive system, immunity response and circulatory system.

Peppermint EO:  Helps support the body functions of the circulatory and digestive systems.

Eucalyptus EO:  Helps support the body function of the circulatory system.

White Fir EO:  Helps support the body's immunity response.

Lemon, Peppermint and Eucalyptus are also good for the body's whole health organ, your skin.

For me the choice is obvious and a Busy Woman win.

I don't have to wear a face guard around my kid and I can rest assured that I am helping my family stay healthy and help keep the medical bills down.

Who doesn't like saving money?

I'll be back soon!

Introducing Miss Kelly

Welcome to the start of our new monthly series.  

Here at Busy Women's Health we have been trying to come up with a way to share the stories of our followers.  Carly and I finally decided that the simple route was best.  

We have reached out to a few of our friends and gotten their stories directly from them and now we're sharing them with you.  

Of course, since we know the first few ladies, we may just throw in a few "details" of our own.

I Ate The Damn Cake And Lost 21 Pounds

Today is a good day. No, a GREAT day.

This morning, I stepped on the scale and was amazed and ecstatic to see that I am officially 21 POUNDS LIGHTER since beginning my Intermittent Fasting journey at the end of January 2018. See the difference?

I've talked before about how I found IF and started my weight loss journey if you want to check it out.

The day I started IF, I weighed in at 149.8 lbs, the heaviest I'd ever been in my life. Today, I am 128.8 lbs. I haven't been close to this for almost a decade. I never thought I'd get back to 130 lbs, much less BELOW it!




And I did it without depriving myself, without sacrificing my favorite foods and without ever once feeling guilty about anything I ate.

Sure, I probably could've reached this milestone sooner had I been a bit stricter with myself, but that kind of defeats the purpose of what IF is all about.

Please Stop Asking When I'm Getting Married

"When are YOU getting married?"

This is a question that has begun to haunt me as an unmarried, unengaged woman in a long-term relationship. Well, that and "when are you going to have kids?" But, that's a subject to broach another time.

What do you say to that? It's not as if we've secretly gotten engaged, set a date and haven't told anyone. Responding truthfully with "I don't know" doesn't seem like the right response.

I've learned to brace myself at gatherings and social functions (especially weddings) for this inevitable question. 

Now, I am completely aware that the asker is simply trying to take an interest in my life and that the question is meant in a completely harmless way. I don't take offense to it, I just get asked this A LOT.

You know who doesn't get asked this question...like ever?

My boyfriend.

I recall an event a while back where I fielded this question about half a dozen or more times. On our way home, I asked …
