Turn Our Eyes Away

"It is ever the Holy Spirit's work

 to turn our eyes away from self

to Jesus,

 but it is Satan's work

to do just the opposite."

-Charles Spurgeon

A Healthy Home & an E-course on Learning How to Use Essential Oils!

Are you new to the world of essential oils?

I definitely am new, but I am making a point of spending the time researching their benefits and all the different companies out there. I wasn't fully convinced that they worked or if they were just a fad or not, so I had some reservations about them initially.

But recently with all the weather changes I found myself with allergies -  the kind of allergies I haven't had since I was in high school. The typical runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes, etc., but this time it came back with a vengeance.

Earlier in the year I was gifted with a small assortment of essential oils so I took to the internet and searched for an oil that would bring me some relief. Wouldn't you know that one of the oils mentioned happened to be Lavender, one of the oils that I owned.

So I followed the advice of putting a few drops on each hand, cupping them, and inhaling deeply. Apparently it acts like an antihistamine and within minutes I could breath easy again.

I was so impressed by it that I told my children and had them try it too, and it helped them as well. Now they are even asking to use it!

So I am determined to learn more about essential oils and their benefits.

You can imagine how pleased I was to find that an ecourse on the use of essential oils (valued at $95)  was being offered in The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle.  It is called Essential Oils and Natural Living by by Jesse Hawkins at Vintage Remedies.

That is a great deal when you consider that the entire bundle is only $29.97 for the entire package of  72 ebooks, seven e-courses, and $200 worth of bonuses!

Another resource included in The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle is an eBook on essential oils just for beginners like me:

It is called: The Titus Two Homemaker Teaches Essentials of Essential Oils for Beginners by Rachel Ramey and I am seriously looking forward to looking through this guide to get a better use of what basic oils she recommends so I can begin experimenting using those as well. I definitely like the fact that I can have an option of turning to remedies for my family that can help and heal them in a natural way.

If you are interested in this ecourse and learning more about essential oils, I highly recommend The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle that I shared earlier this week ( see the complete list) to get more for your money and also get a ton of other helpful resources to assist you on your road to a healthier lifestyle.

If you would love to learn more about this amazing bundle
 and all the wonderful resources included click here

or get yours right now before it's gone below!

If you have a minute, would you please share with us in the comments section your favorite essential oil company to use and why?

Helpful Homemaking: Learning Your Way Around the Kitchen, Meal Planning & Healthy Food

When I was a young girl I was an only child.

I remember my mother teaching me how to cook. She showed me the many of the basics--how to fry an egg (yes, just one egg), how to boil water and how to make toast. It was all so easy since our family was so small. I remember often times she should do most of the cooking and I would just stand by and make a small dish here and there outside of what she did. I never really got a chance to make whole meals since my mother really enjoyed doing that mostly on her own.

So when I got married I was excited to try my hand in the kitchen, armed and equipped with my handy dandy Betty Crocker cookbook, I stepped out of my comfort zone into the great unknown. Learning slowly, I made meal after meal teaching myself while experimenting with our small family. It was always exciting to learn new things."></a><img src="" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" /

Now fast forward to today and now we have a mega family of 11! I love our family and am determined to try to do my best with them. I have learned on the fly as a young housewife but today I am making sure that my daughters and sons will be better equipped than I was back in those days.

Since I have older children I have assigned meals and their preparation to them. Each child knows how to make different meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It took a little while to teach them, but they learned fast, and now I am reaping the fruit of the labor of teaching them. Now it all runs like clock work and everyone has developed some valuable skills in the kitchen. And not to mention the fact that my husband especially loves the fact that my 13 year old son can make some mean pancakes!

But as you might already know, meal planning and making healthy food is something that you never stop learning about or getting better at. You are always honing and perfecting your craft. You want to keep learning how to make healthy meals for your family so that you don't get sick from the poor food choices available today and you want to do it in a budget friendly way so that you don't go broke in the process.

I was checking out some of the wonderful ebooks last night in The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle and there really are some fabulous resources to really help us learn more and be better homemakers. I love how much they are offering this year --everything from cleaning green, gardening, healthful eating, essential oils, being fit, to seasonal recipes. Everything that is in between looks amazing as well and what a blessing for any homemaker to get her hands on something like this.

I picked out a few that I was browsing and interested in below:

There is so much more goodness included in this bundle that I shared about yesterday, so click here in case you missed it and want to view all the titles.

I believe these ebooks would be invaluable to any homemaker, whether they are learning the ropes or a veteran!

If you are interested in purchasing The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle, a value of over $1000 for just $29.97 (including FREE bonuses) I highly recommend you do so soon, there are only five days left!

Happy homemaking!
