It’s October, everything is pink; and it is time to remember to care for your girls!
There are lots of options for essential oils to support female hormones and breast health.
Some favorites are:
Please look them up in your reference guides to learn more about why & how to use each when choosing which are right for you and your body.
An easy way to use these oils is to pick a few of your favorites, add them to some coconut oil, mix it up and keep on your bathroom counter. Then just apply a bit to each breast topically each day to keep them perky and healthy 🙂
If you’re a Nursing Mama and need extra support for your girls check out our specific post here.

3. test the steam to make sure it is not super hot (we don’t want to burn your nostrils)
4. bring the put carefully to a safe place so that you can sit in front of it
5. add 2 drops of each oil to the pot of water
6. place face over the pot of water —- about 8 inches from the water, close your eyes, breath deep and put the towel over your head in order to capture the steam, creating a tent. Breath deeply for as long as you can stand the warm steam on your face.

It is probably one of my favorite holidays — no joke! Dress up, imaginative play, parties, fall festivities, scary decorations, witch cackles, and trick or treating!
What I don’t love? The candy!!!! Especially now that I’m a Mama! I know that SUGAR is toxic to the body, it is as addictive as cocaine to the brain, it feeds cancer and it suppresses the immune system for up to 6 hours after it is ingested, leaving the body compromised and susceptible to catching illness! And no body wants to deal with colds/coughs/fevers and the list goes on!
I know, I know, you don’t want to hear that!
But you can have yummy healthy sweet treats this Halloween, all you have to do is make your own, homemade is always best anyways, right? Maple syrup, raw honey and stevia can easily replace refined sugar in any recipe!
Now that we got the treats covered, what about that trick or treating??? Yep this is a tricky one! But I have a great solution, it’s called the Switch Witch!
Allow your kiddos to trick or treat as normal and then when they get home tell them the story of the Switch Witch. There are 2 really awesome books that tell the story of the Switch Witch. Check them out here & here.
But the story goes like this….The Switch Witch has a little puppy and her puppy loves loves candy! If you leave your candy out (placed in a cauldron or bucket) on Halloween’s Eve, the Switch Witch will come and switch your candy (wink wink) for a special toy! She will give your candy to her puppy dog who will eat it all up!
So this Halloween, consider avoiding having weeks of candy hanging around the house, do the Switch Witch instead, get your kid something special, like a new book, or a fun brain challenging educational toy. If you don’t like the Switch Witch story, make up your own, Mommy & Daddy can be the one to bring the surprise gift as well and give the candy away….it’s your choice do what you think is best for your family. You could even make a game out of it, certain prizes are worth so many pieces of candy in trade 😉 get clever & have fun!
Avoid the candy and your body and your mind will thank you!
Think of something we missed? We’d love to hear more ideas, comment below to share!
First, you need the basics.
Rope, carabiner, jumper cables, a rechargeable jumper, pocket knife, compass, duct & electrical tape, waterproof matches, flashlights, tarp, shovel, basic tool kit, and a basic first-aid kit.
We also suggest adding these great natural items to your first-aid kit: arnica, activated charcoal capsules, cayenne pepper capsules, and a DIY first-aid salve.
You also need some snacks in case you are stuck for an extended time. Great ideas for snacks are bottled water (coconut water would also be great in warm climates), granola bars, trail mix, supergreen powder, Ningxia Red, and Ningxia Nitro.
Next you need to be prepared with our favorite must-have Young Living essential oils.Thieves, lavender, peppermint, DiGize, Purification, Stress Away, En-R-Gee, helicrysm, Deep Relief, Lemongrass, and the Thieves Spray. When using oils it is also important to have some reference material, so a Pocket Reference Guide is great!
Don’t have these awesome oils? Don’t put it off, you need them. Find out more here.
If you’re in a warm climate, we are happy for you. But for those of us in the midwest, here are a few more items to make sure you have for the cold months. Extra hats, scarves, and mittens (waterproof is great too). Blankets (thermal or regular warm blankets), a thermal tent, snow shovel, a window ice scraper, and sand or kitty litter to help get out if you get stuck.
Thanks for taking the time to consider this list. It is so important to the safety of your family to always be prepared. Making the effort to pack your car now could make the difference in an emergency situation. Comment below with your favorites to pack!
