Have you ever woken up feeling unstoppable and ready to seize the day? Whether you’re a morning person or not, there’s no denying that the first moments set the mood for the rest of the day.
Incorporating essential oils into your morning routine can amplify your intentions and enhance your feelings of confidence so you can start your day from a place of strength. Layering and blending specific oils in distinct ways can help cultivate the right mindset, focus the intentions, and provide an emotional anchor throughout your day.
The four elevating oils in Gary’s Great Day Protocol embrace this sentiment, and when used together are a powerful way to start each day with intention and empowerment (not to mention, you’ll smell amazing).

You may have heard it said that essential oils stimulate the limbic system.
What is that?
The limbic system is the central part of the brain where emotions are stored. One of those areas is the amygdala, which plays a major role in storing and releasing emotional trauma. The ONLY way to stimulate the amygdala is with fragrance through the sense of SMELL!
The thalamus is also in the limbic system and controls our vision, touch, hearing, and sleeping and wakefulness. Many people have had AMAZING results using and diffusing oils for these functions, sleeping and wakefulness in particular!
We also have the pituitary gland. Hormones secreted from the pituitary gland help control: growth, blood pressure, certain functions of the sex organs, thyroid glands and metabolism as well as some aspects of pregnancy, childbirth, nursing, water/salt concentration and the kidneys, temperature regulation and pain relief.
Diffusing essential oils is the safest option for methods of use especially when having feelings of …
wanting their brains to shut off at night
dealing with past fears and/or traumas
mentally processing something really painful
difficulty connecting with others because they’ve been hurt
Now you can fully appreciate why diffusing is so awesome! Essential oils are SAFE enough and small enough to cross the blood brain barrier and have an effect on the brain.
Isn’t that incredible?!?

There are many unsung heroes in the animal world, but one in particular is the bee.
Pretty much 90% of the worlds wild flowering plants depend on pollinators like bees in order to continue living.
Humans can be quite destructive at times and ruin the ecosystem that these pollinators need to survive. So by doing things to help save the bees and other pollinators, we are doing things to keep our food source is sustainable.
That is why the UN designated May 20 as World Bee Day.
We can do many things to help support the bees and other pollinators because they currently are under threat.
Buy raw local honey
Support business that use sustainable farming practices
Protect bee colonies
Raise awareness of this dire issue with those in your social circle
Where do essential oils fit in?
When gardening with essential oils, you can repel bad insects which reduces the need to use pesticides. You also are able to attract good insects like pollinators to ensure your garden grows.
I like to use a pollinators spray on the leaves of my flowering fruit and vegetable plants to make sure the bees give them plenty of love.
It is my way of letting bees and other pollinators know that my yard is pollinator friendly!
If you want to use good quality essential oils in your garden and help support pollinators, I can help you order what you need.

Have you ever been without ideas about what to cook for dinner?
That was my predicament the other night. I was looking at recipes and decided that I wanted to make lemongrass rice with a deconstructed stuffed pepper mix.
For the main dish,
I browned a pound of ground turkey with an onion.
Added salt, pepper, & garlic.
Then mixed in a can of diced tomatoes, chili seasoning, 2 drops each of vitality oils cumin, parsley, and black pepper.
Let simmer for 15-20 minutes
For the lemongrass rice:
I did not have any lemongrass, so I decided to use my vitality essential oil. I put two drops in a little bit of olive oil and drizzled that over the rice in the rice cooker.
Then I added my water, dash of sea salt, and cooked it.
Plated it and garnished with some Homemade pickled Peppers and carrots,
It turned out so good! It was very fragrant.
I love experimenting and finding more and more uses for my vitality oils!
