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!

Covid-19: A Message From A Front Line Health Care Worker

Hello friends, I hope this message finds you well.  Through out the recent weeks, and the onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have been struggling on what to say.  I have been trying to keep a positive outlook, telling myself that we'll be okay. That everything will go back to normal eventually, but as we've seen, so much changes from day to day that it's hard to know what the future holds right now. It's scary. It can be overwhelming. We've never seen anything like this. Some of us are in major hotspots and some, thankfully, are in more sheltered pockets. The reality of the situation is that we are all affected. I am writing this from my home office, a place that I have spent much much more time in recently, especially in the wake of the governor of Colorado, Jared Polis' stay-at-home orders. Being that I am a member of the media, I have been deemed "essential." Like many of us, I have special documentation from Washington, D.C. that

I Slept Funny And Now I'm Dying

Okay, maybe not "dying," but omg. I woke up and realized it hurts to turn my head. TURN MY HEAD.  I have such a massive knot in the left side of my neck, it would make a sea captain proud...or at least my old Girl Scout troop leader. And why, you ask? Why am I in such horrendous pain? What is the cause of this completely over-dramatic post?  I flipping SLEPT WRONG.  Seriously. My neck hurts, because I apparently slept standing on my head while breakdancing. That's the only position I can think of that would make any sense for how I'm feeling right now. I really don't mind aging, I just mind the "my body is falling apart" part of aging. As a kid, I could sleep on just a blanket on a concrete floor with no pillow and wake up the next day feeling AWESOME. Now, I basically need to have a heating pad on top of a Tempurpedic on top of another Tempurpedic on top of a fluffy cloud just to wake up feeling like I may've been human at on
