Female Peace and Molasses!


Life is good and so full of goodness!  I hope all of you are well.  Myself...doing great and love what I am doing....I only wish I could duplicate myself and accomplish all the things I want to do, places I want to go and see and all that I want to learn and look at Pinterest for more ideas that I don't really have time for.  Oh my, right???

So since last's a quick update...January came in with rain and more rain and 50 baby chicks for some new laying hens that have just started laying...getting 38 eggs a day now!  February we celebrated my husbands 50th birthday with him summiting Mt. Shasta last weekend...something that has been on his bucket list.  March, I was able to plant my garden that is producing lots of beans, peas and lettuce. was still raining but attendees still showed up to buy Soaps, Bath Fizzies, Sea Salt Scrubs and Lip Balm at the Roses & Rust Vintage Fair.  April concluded with Senior Prom for my youngest and his beautiful girlfriend.  May can running in and out with graduation festivities and family fun on the lake.  June has been filled up with camping trips, Lake Tahoe and some rafting to come.  (See photos)

As for The Essential Olive, the one thing I have been really testing lately is my Female Peace Roll On.  I am at that age where the "change" is happening and with some minor cramping, I have been using my Female Peace.  I find that within about 20 minutes, my cramping has decreased...this I love!  Female Peace is a Synergy Blend designed to ease the discomfort and imbalances of PMS, peri-menopause and menopause and it promotes a sense of well being. It contains the essential oils Roman Chamomile, Clary Sage, Geranium, Palmarosa, Rose and Sandalwood.  (At the end of the blog is a list of what these essential oils do.)  And with peri-menopause, we all know that our periods can become obnoxiously heavy as I have experienced.  Because of this,  I felt like needed to replenish my body with some iron and I LOVE molasses.  It is like candy to me and so I grab my Blackstrap Molasses and take a couple spoonfuls (only 1 tsp. if you are new to this.)  I did some research on molasses as well and found out that it is not only good for iron, but also for the following.

  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • Phosphorus
  • Zinc
  • Manganese
  • Selenium
  • Pantothenic Acid
  • Thiamine (Vitamin B-1)
  • Vitamin B-2
  • Niacine (Vitamin B-3) 
  • Vitamin B-6
Blackstrap molasses full of nutrients and when vitamins are taken in a food source instead of a pill, they are more likely to be assimilated into the body.  Yes!  Now me...I hate taking vitamins, so taking a spoonful of molasses, I can do that!  I just found my new vitamin!  And also here is a list of the conditions that have reportedly been helped by blackstrap molasses:
  • Anemia
  • Atrial Fibrillation
  • Heavy Menstrual Bleeding
  • Fibroids
  • Acne
  • Arthritis
  • Gray Hair - Ohhhhh, I could use this too!
  • Constipation
  • Low Energy
  • Hot Flashes - been blessed with only minor hot flashes!
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Nose Bleeds
  • Weight Loss
  • Sugar Cravings - I crave chocolate right before my period.  :)
If you look on this website, you can read all about Blackstrap molasses, just click here and if you need some Female Peace, click here.  Start feeling better now!  
Well hope you have all learned something today and once again enjoyed my writings!  I hope to be back soon writing about my newest BITE ME NOT bug repellent!  See you next time!

Hello Everyone!

Happy 2017!!!  I hope each of you has had a moment to sit down with your cup of coffee (tea in my case) and ponder on 2016.  If you haven't, I challenge you to take some time to do this.  I think it brings clarity and causes us to be deliberate about things we can change or improve on for 2017.  Change doesn't just happen on it's own and often change requires YOU to be the catapult.  If we don't purposely challenge ourselves to grow in a positive way, then next year at this time, what will have changed?  This year I journaled and actually wrote out questions and the answers about 2016 and 2017.  My former habit is to come up with a quick answer, get back to work and not every really be deliberate about doing anything with my answers.   But...this year,  I am and have already started changing some thought patterns and "doing" the answers to my questions.  Anyway, God and I got all the questions answered together and below are some of the questions that you might want to take some time to meditate.

  • What lessons have I learned in 2016?
  • Who have I become in 2016?
  • Who has God become for me in 2016?
  • Where am I going in 2017?
  • What does God want to be for me in 2017?
  • What upgrades will I get in 2017 and how do I prepare for the upgrade?
I am anxious to continue the pursuit of the 2017 answers, live them out and then re-read my journal next year at this time to see my personal growth and the things God has brought me through.  

So bringing in the New Year with The Essential Olive, some of my goals are to market my Felted Soap. You ask..."what is felted soap?"  The answer is simple, its soap wrapped up in wool that is felted.   Since I have a lot soap and I have a friend that has a lot of sheep, we recently collaborated to make felted soap!  Some of the benefits of felted soap are listed below.
  • they make your soap last longer
  • it is a natural washcloth and exfoliator
  • doesn't slip out of your hands
  • the wool is anti-fungal and you can use for a cleaning scrubby after the soap is gone
What a olive oil soap with fine rambouillet wool...a locally made product from northern California.  You can check out The Essential Olive  and Lani's Lana websites.  

Next on the list....beard oil...know any men with a beard???

Til then, smile, forgive, love and walk in who YOU are.  There is no better YOU!
