Momentum with Confidence

I was recently gifted this blend by one of my team members and had never heard of it before. What a special, heartfelt gift and delightful surprise! She included the recipe and I cannot wait to share this with others, including you. But first, let’s take a look at how Webster defines momentum and confidence. Talk about powerful!


Momentum: the strength or force that allows something to continue or to grow stronger or faster as time passes
Confidence: faith or belief that one will act in a right, proper, or effective way


Watch Royal Crown Diamond, Lindsey Gremont making it below. She explains how this blend can help break you free of self-limitation not only in your business, but your personal life as well.

Momentum Blend for Change and Confidence

This blend is best used as a roll-on so that you can take it wherever you go! I keep one in my purse and one at my desk to help instill a bit of hustle in my day.

• 10 drops Sacred Frankincense– an amazing oil for feelings of worthlessness, unworthiness, and blame.
• 8 drops Believe– for feelings of dishonesty towards yourself. Encourages feelings of strength and faith that empowers you to move to a higher level of awareness. Using this oil enables you to move past emotional barriers so that you can reach your goals.
• 5 drops Into the Future– empowers you to leave the past behind with confidence. Keeps you from accepting mediocrity and instills strength and joy when facing fears and challenges.
• 5 drops Motivation– clears feelings of fear and procrastination. Enables you to move forward in a positive direction.
• 3 drops Highest Potential– for feelings of annoyance and disconnect with oneself. Instills a sense of strong self-confidence and purpose while harmonizing your emotions and uplifting your spirits.
• 3 drops Gathering– for focus and getting out of the daily grind. Leads you on the path to higher achievement. Helps you overcome chaotic energy that diverts us from achieving our goals.
• 3 drops Present Time– for feelings of resistance to change. Promotes focus on the present instead of concentrating on the past which leads to counter productivity.
• 1 drop Abundance– takes away feelings of worry and lack of substance to your life. Promotes prosperity and joy while facing challenges and opens us to a wealth of possibilities. Also known as the “Law of Attraction” oil.

All of these lovely essential oils are available at 24% off retail HERE.

Loving Preparation- Momentum Blend

To create momentum using essential oils simply add each oil above to a roll-on bottle. Feel free to add a carrier like sweet almond, jojoba, fractionated coconut oil, or grapeseed oil to the shoulder of the bottle if desired. Pop on the roller top and apply as needed.

To Use:

When you’re feeling like you’re taking one step forward and two steps back, apply the blend on each wrist and inhale deeply for 2-3 breaths. Think clearly about your intensions for challenging situations you need to face that day. I like using this when I’m dragging my feet over things I don’t feel like doing. This blend helps you create momentum to get things done!

DIY Body Butter

Be kind to your hard-working skin! This homemade body butter recipe will leave your skin moisturized and soft, thanks to rich cocoa butter and coconut oil. We love its whipped consistency that goes on smoothly and feels light to the touch.

Whipped Body Butter


  • 1 cup organic coconut oil
  • 1 cup organic solid cocoa butter (do not use lotion)
  • 15 drops of your favorite topical/aromatic essential oil (we love Cedarwood, Lavender, and Frankincense essential oils)­


  1. Warm a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, then add coconut oil and cocoa butter. Melt until completely liquefied, about 4–5 minutes.
  2. Pour into a glass mixing bowl and place in refrigerator for 30–45 minutes to cool and just set but not harden.
  3. Stir in essential oils.
  4. Using an electric hand mixer, whip until firm peaks form, about 10 minutes.
  5. Gently transfer to a seal-able jar or container. Store at room temperature to avoid melting or solidifying.
  6. Massage into dry skin!

Cooling Mist Spray


~ Tanya Patterson ~

Oooooh, the hot summer days are upon us and as excited as we are to have them here, some days are just a little “too” hot.  This recipe is courtesy of Stacy McDonald over at The Common Scents Mom and it has been tried, tested, and approved by my active boys who love to be outside, even in the heat.  I hear, “Mom, can you spray some cooling mist on me, I’m really hot?” as a common phrase around here now. So much so, that even the neighborhood kids come asking for it, lol!  😀


Cooling Mist Spray Recipe

  • 4 oz. glass spray bottle
  • 5 Young Living Wintergreen essential oil
  • 25 Young Living Peppermint essential oil
  • pinch of salt (helps oils stay dispersed in the water)

Directions: Add the essential oils to the spray bottle along with a pinch of salt, then fill the rest with water. Gently swirl the bottle to evenly disperse the oils and then store in the refrigerator until ready to take with you.  Toss into your bag and away you go.  When you are ready to use, spray the back of the neck, back, and arms.  You can spitz the forehead if careful enough to stay away from eyes.

(It also helps refresh and rid that “stinky boy” smell from sweating and playing, until it’s bathtime of course).

… “ahhhhh!”


Bath Fizzies


Tonight I spent time with some wonderful ladies for a “Spa Night” and we made some fun spa recipes to use at home.  This one is one that I’d like to share with all of you, it’s called Bath Fizzies.  These are wonderful for personal use, or to give as a gift.



  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 3/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup Epsom salt
  • 10-15 drops essential oil of your choice (I used Peace & Calming but I also love using Sacred Mountain or Stress Away too)
  • spray bottle filled with 2 oz. water (you can use as is or add 6 drops of food coloring for the color of your liking)
  • cookie sheet or container to lay your finished Bath Fizzie on to dry.


  1. Stir together citric acid, baking soda, Epsom salt and cornstarch.
  2. Mix together through a fine sieve or flour sifter to combine thoroughly.
  3. Add 15 drops essential oil and use fingers to break it up into the mixture so as not to ball up.
  4. Use your spray bottle to slowly moisten the mixture as you try to form it into balls along the way (it is VERY important not to soak your mix but to just barely dampen it.  You only want it moist enough to hold together but not wet enough that it starts fizzing and expanding, we learned this all too well tonight).
  5. Pack into round balls (about the size of a medium egg).
  6. Place on cookie sheet to air dry.
  7. Let dry overnight, than put into container to store or give as a gift.
  8. Use 2 per bath.

Be Creative, Have Fun

You can do quite more than you think when making homemade bath fizzies.

  • For children you can pack a small toy inside that will leave them a fun bathtime surprise!
  • For the one you love, try adding a little heart or something cute.

The possibilities are endless so enjoy, be creative and have fun! Oh, and don’t forget to share what you packed YOUR bath fizzie with.

This post would not be complete without a thank you to my dear Sister-in-Christ, Chris for a fun evening.
