I was asked to host a table at the Belly, Baby and Kid Show at the Act in Maple Ridge. It was first a shock that someone knew who I was to contact me. I started my little business formally in May 2013. That’s when my website and blog went up and when I decided to try and turn this passion into a career. So for me to know in less than a year I have a) made enough money to afford a table and b) get recognized in the community makes me very proud I followed my heart.
Besides over 40 vendors a few other things are happening…
-interactive family fun zone
-stage performers (dance, karate, magician)
-mini seminars (sleep consultant and nutritionist)
-the Easter bunny!
-queen Elsa is visiting
-200 swag bags
Come out to support local businesses in our community and to spend time with family and friends.
Oh, and don’t forget to come by and say Hi… Maybe buy an essential oil or book a birth doula interview. My and my assistant will ready to help you!
So, when I’m not at a birth, helping a mom postpartum, encapsulating a placenta, being a mom or a wife or working full time…. Phew, I decided to distribute Essential Oils For Healing.
Now this is not something I thought i was going to do, it was actually something that was relativly new to me. Not until I was pregnant in 2009 did I learn more about Essential Oils and the benefits. I’ve since used them in cleaning products, in my cloth wipes, in baths, in diffusers, orally, topically…. (and probably more). I’ve decided to write a few ways I use them in my day to day life.
If you asked my husband he would say my new favorite past time is researching diffusers and then purchasing them. Well, partially true, I have 3 very different diffusers. I have one that is a plug in (think Glade without chemicals, only pure essential oils) and I have a candle diffuser (I think its about 15 years old from the Body Shop, but it’s a goody) and lastly my most prized possession is a cold air humidifying diffuser.
These allow me to diffuse my favorite scents (right now eucalyptus, lavender and grapefruit). Some are for healing– (I have a nasty cold right now and the eucalyptus helps my nostrils do their job properly). And some are for air freshener– our bathroom smells like grapefruits, better than what it has smelled like in the past.
My Every Day Cleaner
When I was pregnant I started reading labels of household cleaners and freaking out a bit. So many chemicals! To make me less paronoid I started concocting my own cleaning products. After many attempts I think I perfected my everyday cleaner. Here is a simple one I use on a regular basis.
4 cups of water
1/4 cup vinegar
20 drops or tea tree oil
1 tbs castile soap
Home Made Bum Wipe Solution
This is so simple and much easier and healthier for your baby. No nasty ingredients you can’t read or pronounce.
–Roll up your soft cotton wash cloths and place in a wipes warmer
–add 2 cups of warm water
–5 drops of Tea Tree Oil
–1 tablespoon of coconut oil

Well, that’s right folks. Essential Oils for Healing the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows page has well over 100 likes in less than one week. I decided to sell essential oils after I tried the Lullaby Blend. I tried the oil on my three-year-old feet and suddenly there was no more jiggling and wiggling and tossing and turning in bed. This alone made me decide to sell essential oils for healing. Since having the lullaby blend we’ve tried a few others and they’ve all been very successful.
Celebrate my Facebook page I’m getting 100 likes I’ve decided to post a give-a-way. You have multiple ways to enter and some you can enter each day. Good luck and don’t forget, you get extra points for commenting on the blog what oil you would choose if you won.
