Kicking up energy with En-R-Gee

enrgee

From the moment I heard about En-R-Gee I was intrigued!

What is En-R-Gee? En-R-Gee is a blend of rosemary, juniper, lemongrass, nutmeg, Idaho balsam fir, clove and black pepper. And it does exactly what the name suggests it helps boost energy!

Okay let me be honest here for a second…when I first opened my first bottle of En-R-Gee I did not like the smell I think it. But, don’t worry if you don’t at first. After a few hours it quickly turn into one of my absolute favorite oils! Now it is such a comforting wonderful smell to me! It has become a staple in my husbands and my morning oily routine!

My sweet Hubby works from home which is AAAwesome! He works “Early” east coast hours {ummm yeah we are west coasters} After an incredibly hectic day we didn’t make it to bed until well after midnight…he had to work the next morning, in fact he had a E-A-R-L-Y meeting. When I woke up and went down to the office I expected to find him half awake and DRAGGING. To my utter surprise he was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed! He told me that when he woke up he felt like crap and didn’t feel like he got any rest at all 😦 He decided to rub a little En-R-Gee on his temples, forehead, back of his neck and wrists before he headed down to his office to log on. His plan was to log on get everything situated and then close his eye for a little bit in his chair…but…by the time he logged in to his work computer the En-R-Gee had done its magic! He now uses En-R-Gee every morning and cannot imagine his mornings without it!

For me its been just as wonderful. I have been using it in the same way every morning too! Also I like to put a drop on my wrists before our hikes, I love doing this because I can smell my wrists when I need a little pick me up {Our regular trail is pretty long and has some climbing – on hot days it can be a killer!} Similar to my husband’s experience I have been amazed at the ‘magic’ that is En-R-Gee! On particular afternoon I was drained. The kids were napping and having daily ‘quite time’ and I thought I’m going to lay down and just rest for 15 minutes. I decided to diffuse En-R-Gee in the living room. With in a matter of minutes I felt rejuvenated and ready to tackle tasks that early had seem to daunting. I’d call that a En-R-Gee win!

Our Favorite ways use En-R-Gee?

  • When we don’t feel as rested as we like in the morning we both rub En-R-Gee on our temples.
  • I love to diffuse En-R-Gee for me- especially in the afternoon! Especially when I have had an extra crazy morning/mid-morning…Haha who am I kidding that almost every day! I also LOVE diffusing it in the school room!
  • For a little extra get up and go I like to rub En-R-Gee on the bottoms of my feet.
  • My husband likes to use En-R-Gee when he is studying for school (he just started his bachelors/MBA program)
  • If were driving late at night and are starting to get sleepy En-R-Gee really can help late-night driving even better than caffeine.
  • We also have used En-R-Gee to help purify the air in a stinky room or two.

I just can’t even begin to tell you guys how pleased I am with En-R-Gee! It’s absolutely go to oil for our family! My husband wants his own bottle that he can keep in his office!

Have you used En-R-Gee? I love to hear your thoughts on it and how you use it!

For the LOVE of Frank!

Hey guys! I know I’ve been MIA! A lot has been going on and some big changes are happening! One of these changes as that my husband is going back to school!!!! Starting Monday he will be working on his bachelors and MBA!! We are so excited! For years we prayed about him going back to school to complete his degree but every single time he would start pursuing it God would close the doors…it just was not the right time. Well! God open the door and he opened it big and he opened it fast! Ok but that’s not the reason for this post…Lets talk Essential Oils!!

For weeks I have been educating myself as much as I possibly can on our journey with Young Living Essential Oils!! Honestly, I didn’t really think it was possible to be more in love with our young living essential oils but…I totally am! AND my hubby is 100% oil obsessed too! He has been sharing with a number of his friend about some of his favorite! Love it!

Let’s talk about some Oily awesomeness!

frankFew weeks into our oily journey I started hearing tons of oily ladies talking about how they LOVE Frankincense for their skin. At the time the only experience with Frank was for coughs. {Yes it’s awesome}
I found myself very intrigued by using it on my skin particularly on my face! One really cool thing that I learned about frankincense is its ability to heal scars! It also can help confirm and tighten skin okay I know I’m not that old but I’m not getting any younger… and I mean come on who doesn’t want younger looking from the skin?? 🙂 so after learning all of this I thought ‘what the heck I’m to give this a try’
Wow! Can I just say frankincense is like magic in a bottle!! I’ve been using it for oh I don’t know a little over six weeks now on my skin I have seen a few difference, even skin tone, tighter skin, softer skin and brighter skin {sometimes I feel like my skin looks really dull} Who doesn’t want that right?!? I’m not a huge face makeup wearer, I really don’t like to. Often I just wear tinted moisturizer and maybe some translucent powder. I’m now totally and completely confident going out the door just as I am!!! Let’s talk a little bit more about the fact that frankincense helps heal scars!  It was really put to the test this past week when my forehead totally broke out… really bad {I think it was directly correlated with hormones and the fact that honestly I had been going to bed really tired and not using my frankincense night cream} but there it was when is horrible nasty blemish almost right in the middle of my forehead 😦 nothing helped I use makeup to cover it up and I just felt like everything made it look like this huge flashing neon sign! I know a lot of you just laughing out exactly what I’m talking about!! Well after a few days of nothing helping enough was enough, I put one drop {neat} of frankincense directly over the blemish. I kid you not within five hours it was no longer as red no longer as dry and no longer as visible! Within 24 hours it went from being unit is kind of blemishes that is like a little red knot to a tiny slightly pink spot!!

Frankincense and coconut oil night cream:frankCoco

  • Two Drops of Frankincense
  • Pea size dollop of Coconut Oil
  • Rub between palms then apply all over face and neck!
  • After rub hands together so they get some of that frank goodness!

Psst Add a drop or two of Lavender for yummy wrinkle fighting goodness!
The last thing about frankincense but I want to share with you isn’t it amazing ability to help remove warts! Four years my husband has had a wart on the side of his ring finger. It’s not very big were words and it is flesh colored but it’s still really bothered him because he could feel it. So of course I was thrilled when I read about some success in a few of the ladies that I know who used frankincense to help remove family members warts. One night shorty after reading the success I applied one drop (neat) directly onto his ward and rubbed it. The day we did the same thing once in the morning and once at night. The next morning my husband was stunned to find that the wart was almost invisible to the eye it no longer was a bump!!! We continue to do this one more morning and night and I’m pleased to say that the wart is totally gone!! Frank wins again!!!

Ooh Guess what?! Tomorrow afternoon I will be getting my very first Young Living delivery after receiving my premium starter kit!!! Eek! I’m so excited because it’s a pretty big order with oils I’m REALLY excited to use!  * I have had a ton of subscribers ask if I will do a video about the products…I don’t know if I’m brave enough for that…BUT I will for sure have a post all about the awesome oils I got!
