Got Warts (and skin tags)? There’s an Oil for That!

Warts are caused by a virus (human papillomavirus or HPV) that affects the top layer of skin. There are many types of HPV. Therefore, there are many different types of warts: common, Plantar, filiform, flat, etc. Many warts will disappear over time on their own; however, they can be embarrassing to have, especially when they are on exposed areas of the body such as hands and face. My family has had to deal with these pesky little things, so I was seeking ways to help rid them from our bodies. Warts are not typically a serious problem, but they are ugly, annoying, and contagious, so we want them gone!

I want to share with you a little bit of what I learned… Continue reading

From This (OTC) to This (YLEO)


We began our essential oil journey in October of 2014. Since that time we have forsaken ALL over-the-counter medications for more natural healing methods, specifically essential oils.  After months of not needing ANY of these meds from our cabinet, I decided to purge it completely. This is the result… 2015-01-28In just three short months, we have been able to replace our chemical treatments with essential oils.  Stay tuned for details on which oils replaced which OTC meds….

Check out my Young Living Essential Oil page for more information about essential oils.

Asthma, Allergies, and Essential Oils


Allergies and Asthma have been a part of my boys’ lives since they were babies. We had a daily routine of OTC and prescription meds as well as regular nebulizer treatments. Unfortunately, we had accepted it as is and just dealt with symptoms year-round. We really had no hope of ever getting better, we just focused on trying to make ourselves more comfortable. Many people in the South deal with allergies and it is considered a part of living here.006
