Let's talk about Candles.. I used to LOVE them and used about 2 of the big 3 or 4 wick candles a week in our home.. 😷
I also used to get terrible headaches daily and could never figure out why.. That is until I started diffusing oils instead.. I noticed immediately that I very rarely got them anymore and it hit me, store bought candles have soooo many chemicals in them and they were the cause of my headaches!! I am so happy I stopped poisoning our air in our home and poisoning us with those icky synthetic fragrances!! I am also so happy I know a girl who makes these yummy smelling soy candles that are totally chemical free!! So days like today when we had no power, I could safely light the candles without breathing toxic crap air!! #essentialoils#nontoxic#freshair#chemicalfree#organic#lifestyle
🌿Can someone level with me on the struggle of not being able to wash living room rugs??? Traditional fabric sprays only mask odors and let me just remind you all of how toxic they are for your respiratory system. 😷 🌿Thieves spray is quick and convenient, it’s a portable essential oil spray ideal for cleaning and deodorizing any surface in your home or office. 🌿Just one small spray freshens counters, sinks, door handles, toilets, and more using only naturally derived, plant-based ingredients and the powerful spicy-citrus scent of Thieves essential oil blend. No rinsing required. Safe to use around children and pet and I love to use it on non-washable fabrics. 🌿I like spraying my rug and then sprinkling some baking soda over it, letting it sit for about 30 min and then vacuuming it up!
My personal favorite way to use essential oils is aromatically. Because I can pop them in the diffuser and forget about them. V minimal work 😂 5-7 drops in your diffuser and then topped with water seems to be the best recipe for a good smelling home. You can add as little or as much as you like. What’s your favorite diffuser blend? Share the love! 👇🏼
So how do you even use these precious oils? That was the most commonly asked question when I did my poles with some of you! This entire page will really unpack that each day; from practical, everyday use; to diy and emotional support. But I’ll start (in my next few posts) with the 3 most basic ways! Starting with: topical. When in doubt, apply the oil to the bottoms of your feet. Your feet house the biggest pores in your body so that will ensure the oil soaks in quickly. You can also apply the oil directly to the area of concern. For example, if your back muscles are giving you trouble, you’d apply our muscle blend directly on the concern area. If it’s winter and your chest is giving you trouble, you’d apply our respiratory blend on your chest and back (lung area). Proper dilution is key. For anyone over 10-ish, you can just dilute with a bit of carrier oil. However much you prefer. With babies and littles, the rule of thumb is two teaspoons of carrier oil per one drop. One tip I’ll leave you with is that our “touch” kits come with 10ML pre-diluted roller balls that are diluted enough to be safe for the whole fam! Very quick and easy. 🌿
It wasn’t easy finding floating shelves that worked in our tiny Brooklyn apartment but they’re now one of my favorite things we own (Bella likes them too!). I love having all of my ceramics on display, and Zack has taken responsibility to witticisms on our board (I like this one, mostly cuz $.50 seems like a great deal for joy). Would you guys be interested in seeing more of my apartment? It’s teeny but it’s v nontoxic (like maybe annoyingly so 😆 ) and at least one spiritual guru (👀 @gracesmithtv) told me it has great vibes. PS: does anyone spot the CW Hemp CBD oil (I always have a stash nearby 😂)???
CAMP LUNCHBOX 🍽 Roczen is headed to the water park today with his camp. I’m so glad he has somewhere to go a few days a week just to get him out of the house more and with kids his own age. Since Nico has been born he has been so patient with me, but I definitely feel guilty not giving him nearly as much attention as he is used to or getting outdoors nearly as often as we did in the past. And we are definitely missing our water park dates! But I guess this is the next best thing, and I’m thankful to at least have it as an option!
Packed his lunch today with the same sprouted bagel sandwich he gobbled up yesterday (@alvaradostreetbakery sprouted grain bagel, heirloom tomato, @sirkensingtons fabanaise, @followyourheart vegan cheese, and hormone and nitrate free turkey from @wholefoods). Also included sliced organic peaches, @driscollsberry organic strawberries, and carrots. And then @lesserevilsnacks ghee popcorn and @kitehillfoods almond milk yogurt stick for side snacks. The whole sandwich is probably too much with the sides, but I’d rather send more than not enough...🤷🏻♀️
Trying to switch up the sides more these days, since the meals get pretty routine. Always trying to keep it #dairyfree , because even though he loves his dairy, his digestive system definitely does not! 😝
Just throwing this out there to inspire others who might be packing lunches for their kids or themselves - it’s pretty fun once you get a routine down! ❤️
Do you wanna know my favorite thing about this company? It’s how they source their oils. Purity and quality are the two most important factors in a good and safe oil. And so is integrity and love. So instead of cutting corners, Doterra goes worldwide; sourcing their plants only from the areas of the world which they are indigenous. This ensures the highest quality because, well, it’s their home! They don’t stop there, though. This is the part that gets me. They actually go into towns and villages and offer to RENT out farms that are already harvesting these plants. They don’t buy the farmer out and send him on his way. They rent his land and employ the local people who know that land and those plants better than anyone else on the planet! You guys! This is huge!! They have brought so much financial and practical help to so many places around the world. Doterra is also a completely debt FREE company. And they have more than enough leftover each year so they use that money to give back to their farms and towns. They build wells, schools, join with Justice projects, go on trips to visit and love on their harvesters, the list goes on. This all really helped to explain to me why pure oils cost what they do. The process is rigorous for certain plants. Frankincense, for example, is harvested on tall cliffs in Africa 😳 making it a very rare and hard to get oil. It’s true when they say “you get what you pay for.” Id have a hard time believing that the $5 oil from the gas station (no joke. I witnessed this) was sourced and properly tested in its native country.
Some time ago, I was fortunate enough to receive a Persian Renew Eye Cream as a gift. After thoroughly falling in love with it, I can fully agree that this product definitely “illuminates, plumps and firms”. (🇷🇺⤵️)
This ‘luxurious renewing eye cream boasts exotic & effective anti-aging Persian botanicals that have been shown to help treat dark circles and puffiness, while plumping and firming the delicate skin around the eyes'.
Powered by highly absorbable unique 500 dalton sized hyaluronic acid and pure concentrated Marine Collagen peptides, this cream helps turn back the skin’s age clock to reduce the appearance of premature aging, sagginess, dryness for a toned, radiant look. Rich in powerful antioxidants Crocin and Crocetin prescious Saffron and antioxidant/anti-inflammatory Black Tea enhance skin tone, stimulate circulation, brighten and treat dark circles and puffiness below the eyes while reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Other impressive ingredients are Rose Hip oil, Aloe Vera, Cucumber extract, Shea butter, Black Cumin oil, Pomegranate oil, Mango butter, Rose water, Carrot extract and Rose Geranium essential oil (the formula is 85% organic).
The texture of this sunny golden product is creamy but light, really fast-absorbing, with nice non prominent natural smell. It does not leave a sticky residue on the skin afterwards, but instead the skin is left soft and silky. After two weeks of use I fell how well my skin hydrated and nourished, it is more radiant and brighten. Hard to say something about fine lines and wrinkles, for them I need much more time of trial. However this product is very promising, and so far I see only improvements at my fragile eye area!
As a sidekick products I received 3 samples of the rest of Gypsy Secrets skincare and totally felt in love with Amazon Super C Repair Balm. Upon each application it made my skin look like a marble - smooth, radiant, with polished glowing. Fabulous stuff! .
I would recommend this product for those who enjoy using good, high-quality organic skincare in their daily skin routine. .
Price: $90 for 15ml (you can get 20% on any Gypsy Secrets products by using code maximalista20)

Ons laatste dagje in Frankrijk is alweer bijna voorbij. Wat hebben we genoten en weer veel mooie herinneringen rijker.
Bij thuiskomst nog even in de vakantie modus om alles weer up te daten en ideeën uit te werken.
Zag al weer leuke bestellingen voorbij komen. Mijn dank daarvoor!
Nu snel de laatste spullen inpakken en dan morgen de hele dag in de auto.

This @berkey_filters #water purification system has been at the top of my wish list forever! Right up there with a new mattress (still looking at you @avocadomattress). They had an awesome special recently that we couldn't pass up. In addition to the system, we got an upgraded stainless steel spigot, 4 #stainlesssteel cups, 2 glass water bottles, and a stand to hold the #berkey . I'm currently not using the stand, but I'm happy to have it. You can truly taste and smell the difference in the #purifiedwater . I cringe at the thought of drinking unfiltered tap water and using tons of bottled water in plastic. So I believe this is a worthy investment in our #health and the environment.

I can’t say enough about these 2 products! On Guard Blend is a powerful protective blend to support your body and immune system.
Adam and I take 2 of the softgels daily to boost our immune system. Yes, we take this supplement all year bc there are germs looming all the time! 2 of my pill popping kiddos take 1 daily and the other two who will not swallow pills yet, use the On Guard on there feet & spine daily.
We also diffuse 3-4 drops on the oil especially during the school year daily.
A drop a day keeps you protected EVERY day!
