MelissaStuff is Now Offering Young Living Essential Oils As Well!

I'm excited to begin a new side venture - using and selling essential oils through Young Living. I'm a baby when it comes to using oils but I am excited to learn and share with anyone else who is interested in oils or a more natural way to deal with our families' health.

To begin with . . . I'm placing an order for Thieves products. (You can read more about them in the box to the side.) They have naturally protective properties and I'm planning to use them in my house as well as putting the oil on my boys as we head into the fall and winter sickness-prone months - not to mention the threats of Ebola, Enterovirus and more. You can get this full kit of Thieves products for just $151 which is a really good deal. It includes:

2 - Thieves Household Cleaner (reg. $22 each)
1 - 15ml Thieves Essential Oil Blend (reg. $33.75)
1 - Thieves AromaBright Toothpaste (reg. $9.75)
1 - Thieves Fresh Essence Plus Mouthwash (reg. $11)
2 - Thieves Spray (reg. $9 each)
2 - Thieves Hand Purifier (reg. $5 each)
2 - Thieves Foaming Hand Soap (reg. $11.75 each)

We have already begun implementing Peace & Calming oil as well as Joy in our house. With a Diffuser you can introduce them to everyone in the home and it seriously helps with the attitude and craziness issues that happen with 7 people, including 6 boys, in the same house.

My next big purchase will likely be this collection of oils to help us through the typically sickness-driven months of fall and winter. It will include:

 Melaleuca (Also known as Tea Tree Oil)
Thieves (I can't have enough!)

This full set costs just about $200 - although each of the items can be purchased individually as well. That's a drop in the bucket when I think about the cost of the OTC remedies, doctor's fees, and prescription medicines we usually buy this time of year.

I'm glad for you to join me as I learn about a more natural alternative to some of the store bought remedies we have spent hundreds and thousands of dollars on just in the eight years since we started having children. If I can do it naturally and achieve the same results, then that's definitely the route I'm going to go. Shoot me an email at and I'll be glad to help you make this work for your family too.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
