Canadian Geese Canada 150


This Summer has been beyond joyful!
Celebrating Canada's 150th Birthday!
Spending so much quality time with family.
I feel so lucky. 
I am filled with happiness.

One of the iconic images of Canada
is the
Canada Goose

I found a huge flock of geese today by the shore
of our freshwater beach.

The Canada goose is a large wild goose species with a black head and neck, white patches on the face, and a brown body. Native to arctic and temperate regions of North America, its migration occasionally reaches northern Europe. It has been introduced to the United KingdomNew ZealandArgentinaChile, and the Falkland Islands.

Like most geese, the Canada goose is primarily herbivorous and normally migratory; it tends to be found on or close to fresh water.
Extremely successful at living in human-altered areas, Canada geese have proven able to establish breeding colonies in urban and cultivated areas, which provide food and few natural predators, and are well known as a common park species. 
In North America, nonmigratory Canada goose populations have been on the rise. The species is frequently found on golf courses, parking lots, and urban parks, which would have previously hosted only migratory geese on rare occasions. Owing to its adaptability to human-altered areas, it has become the most common waterfowl species in North America.

Beach Mandala Making with Foraged Botanicals, Rocks and Shells


I love family 'group activities'!
Not only do you end up with a finished, creative project
but you end up making memories and offering a 
hidden lesson on collaboration and team work!



Making a foraged mandala costs
absolutely nothing but your precious time....
quality family time!


Use any items you can find in nature.


Make it any size. Ours was approximately 5 or 6 ft. in diameter.
Create any pattern you want.
Have everyone....all ages contribute to the overall design.






What is a Mandala?
You might have seen them in current colouring books!

mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe. 

In common use, "mandala" has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe.

Forms which are evocative of mandalas are prevalent in Christianity: the celtic cross; the rosary; the halo; the aureoleoculi; the Crown of Thornsrose windows; the Rosy Cross; and the dromenon on the floor of Chartres Cathedral.


According to art therapist and mental health counselor Susanne F. Fincher, we owe the re-introduction of mandalas into modern Western thought to Carl Jung, the Swiss psychoanalyst. In his pioneering exploration of the unconscious through his own art making, Jung observed the motif of the circle spontaneously appearing. The circle drawings reflected his inner state at that moment. Familiarity with the philosophical writings of India prompted Jung to adopt the word "mandala" to describe these circle drawings he and his patients made. In his autobiography, Jung wrote:
I sketched every morning in a notebook a small circular drawing, ... which seemed to correspond to my inner situation at the time. ... Only gradually did I discover what the mandala really is: ... the Self, the wholeness of the personality, which if all goes well is harmonious.
— Carl Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections, pp. 195–196.

Oils and Intimacy Essential Oils Class


Hi Everyone! Welcome to Class! 

Be sure to have a pen and notebook ready.  Get comfortable. Let's begin!

We are so glad each and every one of you is here. As we've been sharing about oils and their impact in our life these past few years, this is a topic that continually comes up. Not just the fun 'spice things up' in the bedroom topics (but we will touch on that) but all different layers of intimacy. 

We hope to share some things today/tonight that will support you, encourage you, and equip you.

Disclaimer: We are NOT Doctors, we are looking to support ourselves and families with essential oils. Anything shared here is not intended to treat, diagnose, or prescribe any medical advice. All oils we are talking about today/tonight are Young Living Essential Oils only.


What actually is intimacy?

I think that society has such a skewed perception of what intimacy even is. We are WHOLE people. There are so many areas that make us whole, intimacy is one of them. And intimacy itself has it's own areas: intimacy of our mind, emotional intimacy, physical intimacy and spiritual intimacy. I think a great place to begin is to look at our overall health and wellness and how that relates to intimacy in our lives. 

I know, for me, as my health changes, intimacy changes. The better I feel in all different areas of my life (hormonally, well rested, well nourished, etc) the better intimacy is. For all of us, in order to give the most beautiful and precious parts of ourself, we must first tear down a lots of walls. 

A great place to begin if this is an area you want to focus on, is the book: 






I know we can all see how the physical and the emotional are related. 

For example: A hungry child will throw a fit, a tired Mom (Hi) may say some things that are irrational (who me?). 

But there are so many deeper emotions that many women experience: grief, fear, regret, anger --- just to name a few --- that will affect our ability to be physically intimate. We are going to talk about a few emotions before diving into the more fun stuff. 

I want to start with talking about Rose essential oil. 

Rose supports releasing the FEAR of intimacy. Let's just throw this out there to start things off: Rose is an expensive oil, maybe the most expensive one. The great thing for us is that it is also in so many blends! Joy is one of my very favorite oils and it includes Rose. Replacing FEAR in intimacy, would be supporting TRUST in intimacy.



These are a few more oils to look into for supporting emotional intimacy.

1) En-R-Gee: This is an oil that supports releasing isolation. The opposite of isolation is being connected. We all want to be connect in the most intimate ways with our partner. 

2) White Angelica: This is one of my favorite oils, I love to diffuse it at night. This oil is a great support for feelings of loneliness. 

3) I'm gonna get a little fired up here for a minute: I want every single woman reading this to know that there is not a single thing in the world that you could do that would make you any less worthy, any less beautiful, any less worth pursuit, and any less worth protection. Whatever any person has ever declared you to be, is NOT WHO YOU ARE. Anyone who has experienced severe trauma or abuse in any area of their life: SARA essential oil would be a truly wonderful oil for you to look into. I would really encourage you to do some research on this oil. 

4) Release is one of my go to oils. This oil is named perfectly and, in my experience, is one of the fastest working (and best named) oils. It supports releasing some of the emotions that we seem to hang onto.

5) Lastly, Lemon! Lemon, in general, is such an uplifting oil. I love to diffuse it in the morning. It is a great oil to support the releasing of emotions like self blame and regret.



We are going to move on a bit to physically intimacy. When it comes to a marriage and partnership, physical intimacy is so important. Sometimes it feels like maybe it's the least important part of our relationship, or we can't remember the last time. I do truly believe that there are a lot of pieces to the puzzle of intimacy working well. When we put physical intimacy on the backburner, we do lose something in the other areas of intimacy with our spouse. And we are most definitely preaching to ourselves here too, ladies. One of the pieces of our physical intimacy puzzle us our hormones. 

Our hormones truly affect so much else in our bodies. Oils to look into for hormone support for us ladies are: Progessence Plus, Ylang Ylang, Mister, Dragon Time, andSclarEssence. 

I will sing Progessence Plus' praises until the cows come home. If you are struggling with ALL THE THINGS when it's about to be, or is, that time of the month for you. Please look into this oil! Oils to look into for hormone support for your man are: SHUTRAN! I mean there are others, but seriously Shutran forever and ever. Other oils for you guy: Idaho blue spruce (and for us! I will talk about this later) and golden rod!



Two other pieces of the physical intimacy puzzle are our thyroid and our adrenals. For your thyroid: endoflex and thyromin work with your body to bring it into balance and also work to nourish your thyroid. For your adrenals, oils to check out: Nutmeg, En-r-Gee,Ninxga Red, and Ninxga Nitro. I would encourage you to look into the book Taming the Dragon Within to really learn more and educate yourself on supporting your adrenals and thyroid with Young Living Essential oils. You can find that book right there: https://www.discoverlsp.com/all-books/taming-the-dragon-within.html



Let's talk about some things that may become intimacy stealers for us as women.

Some areas that keep us from physical intimacy are
a) exhaustion
b) resentment
c) control. 

Amongst other things, let's be honest. Maybe five children in your bed, maybe 16 piles of laundry, or maybe Netflix. 

But! Let's look into these great oils for some of those areas that are holding us back: 

Panaway for exhaustion, of both the physical and emotional kind! 

Lemongrass for resentment. Maybe he didn't load the dishwasher or walk the dog, these are real problems.... But seriously. 

Resentment.... Lemongrass, do your thing. 

Peace and Calming embraces it's name. As women sometimes we need that PEACE and CALM before we can commit to any.single.thing.else. Especially intimacy. Get yourself some peace and calming. If peace and calming is out of stock lavender is great oil for calming down.



Intimacy stealers for our guys are just as impactful as the exhaustion, resentment and control are for us ladies. Some areas that may keep them from physical intimacy are physical stress, emotional stress, the feelings of not being enough, and a lack of respect. 

No matter what your husband/partner's job is there will be pulls of both physical and emotional stress for them. What is the opposite of physical stress? FUN! What is the opposite of emotional stress? Harmony. I am pretty sure all of our guys want fun and harmonious intimacy with their wives/partners. 

That physical intimacy IS a release of those stressors for them. Eucalyptus Radiata is a great oil for releasing physical stress and Harmony for that emotional stress. I think that the feelings of not being enough can be something that builds up in guys that makes them not want to open themselves up, not want to express themselves to us, and not want to be vulnerable and intimate with us. Which is often times a reaction to our feelings as wives/partners of resentment. 

It's really a vicious cycle because if they're not enough for us, why even try? It can just keep going and going. Abundance is such a wonderful oil for all different areas of intimacy and especially for releasing those emotions of not being enough. Lastly, the opposite of a lack of respect for our husbands/partners is honor. Honor is a beautiful thing to have in intimacy. It keeps you thinking about what your spouse needs and what makes them happy and it leads to a beautiful type of intimacy. The oil for this is Hope.



Okay! Down to the fun stuff: Enjoying the actual gift of physical intimacy.

There are so many ways to use the oils to actually be a part of your physical intimacy. A great place to start is the actual aroma of these oils.

Use your diffuser! Maybe have a scent that's your scent together. Your man knows when that's going in the diffuser, it's gonna be a good night. He can have one for you too. Do those things to prepare each other and set the mood. Maybe especially he for you. Diffuse something that relaxes you! Diffuse something that is stress relieving or energizing. Diffuse something that maybe hits on one of those emotional areas of intimacy that you are trying to work on. I love the atmosphere that diffusing oils creates in my home in general, how fun to add it to your intimate life with your spouse.

Next up: 

Massage oils! These are such a cost effective way to use your oils. They last a long time and have so many great blends of oils in them. I love Sensation massage oil so much. It is diluted and ready to use. Sensation is formulated to increase your feelings and awareness of your surroundings, it increases your response to something which is a perfect fit for intimacy. 

A lot of times what causes yeast infections, bladder infections, etc comes from the use of synthetic lubricants. Rather than using those, we would look into using coconut oil, v6, or sensation massage oil instead. Coconut oil has antibacterial and anti fungal properties and prevents those infections from happening. 

I also love to use Sensation Massage oil or Mirah Shave Oil after shaving. Obsessed.




Let's talk a little bit more about Abundance, shall we? 

This is an awesome oil to use topically. It is a little, ahem, spicier. It's another great oil in terms of increasing your feeling. Next up, all hail Idaho Blue spruce. This is THE go to oil for supporting low libido in both men and women. You can apply it topically or diffuse it. I love to make a roller with 10 drops Idaho Blue Spruce, 10 drops orange and fill it the rest of way with sensation massage oil. This has been a huge game changer for many when it comes to low libido. Gary Young, the founder of Young Living may have been known to say "If you want to see the stallion come out of his stall, give him the Idaho Blue Spruce." Just wanted to pass that information on to you all. You can thank me later. Be creative! If you have a husband/partner who's not on board with oils yet, this will get him on board y'all.



His and Hers: 

SHUTRAN: Helps in the libido department. Primary oil is Idaho Blue Spruce (see last post!) Smells amazing!!! Apply as a cologne or onto forearms. It helps to support healthy hormone levels and function. 

PROGESSENCE PLUS: Hormone and emotional support, supports low libido, I use this every morning and every night. Three drops on my wrists in the morning and three drops on my neck before bed.



Bedroom DIYs…...

Here are a collection of DIY potions to spice up your life and things in the bedroom. Enjoy!

+ “In the Mood” roller blend: Black pepper (12 drops) + Sensation (10 drops) + Clary Sage (10
drops) + Peppermint (12 drops) + carrier oil
Roll on inner thighs - the heat from the black pepper is cooled off with the peppermint for a tingly sensation.

+ Aphrodisiac Massage Oil: Mix 5 drops Ylang Ylang, 3 drops Cypress and 3 drops Orange in 1 tsp of carrier oil. Massage on inner thighs.

+ “Pillow Talk” linen spray: 15 drops bergamot + 15 drops ylang ylang + splash of witch hazel, topped with distilled water



Ylang Ylang. I can't do a class on oils and intimacy and not share a little bit more about this one.

+ the flower of flowers

+ supports sexual drive
+ enhances sensuality
+ may combating anger and low self esteem
+ may increases focus of your thoughts so you’re present in the moment
+ may restore confidence and peace
+ may encourage healthy libido and positivity



Thank you all so much for taking the time to join us today/tonight! Our class was created by Casey Leigh Wiegand, Danielle Burkleo, our precious friends and YL leader Courtney Critz' knowledge and teaching, and the two books Taming the Dragon Within, and Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils.

CLASS NOTE:  Essential oils/product selections and availability will vary from country to country.



LAVENDER

Lavender!
This is an oil that many go to when they think about sleep, and with good reason!
It is so lovely and calming, and is such a great oil to use for sleep support!
+Diffuse it at night,
+apply to the bottoms of your feet 
+take an Epsom salt bath with lavender oil before bed—so many ways to use this oil to promote quality sleep!


In a recent September 2017 @marieclairemag article, dancer and actress @jennadewan shares that adding epsom salts and Young Living Essential Oils to her bath at night helps her "zen out."

What are your favorite ways to use Lavender?!



CEDARWOOD

Cedarwood has a sweet, woodsy scent, and is one of my favorite oils to use at night! Its warm smell is so soothing and calming, which makes it a great oil to add to your sleep routine! Massage into the skin before bed or diffuse for its calming properties. Some say they even notice having more vivid dreams when they use this oil at night!



ORANGE

This might be a surprising oil to use in your bedtime routine, but we absolutely love it! This oil promotes peace and harmony, which are all things that can promote better sleep. You can diffuse it or use it topically. I love to add it to my sleepy time roller blends, or to diffuse it with Cedarwood! That combo together is so dreamy!



GENTLE BABY

This is an oil that invites a sense of calming for both kiddos and adults alike! It is a blend of some of the dreamiest oils, including rose, lavender, lemon, roman chamomile, geranium, ylang ylang, jasmine and palmarosa. That is pretty much pure magic in a bottle! 

I love to diffuse this oil at night, especially with lavender. One whiff from the bottle always gives me the warm fuzzies. When I really feel like I need some extra support when it comes to calming down, I’ll put some on my wrists and the bottoms of my feet.



VETIVER

If you haven’t tried Vetiver yet, you neeeeed to. This oil is so calming and grounding, which makes it a great oil to have in your arsenal for sleep support! Its earthy, warm, woodsy scent is so peaceful and relaxing. Add to your diffuser at night or apply a drop to your wrists. You’ll quickly fall in love with this one!



FRANKINCENSE

Our favorite boyfriend—FRANK! Goodness, what can this oil NOT do?! This oil is earthy and uplifting, helpful to enlighten negative thoughts and feelings and clearing the mind before bed. Cause let’s face it, we’ve all had those nights where we can’t seem to shut our brains off, right?! Add this beauty to your diffuser or use it topically. Use it in your favorite sleepy time roller blend. It’s so good!




ROMAN & GERMAN CHAMOMILE

We all know chamomile is calming, right?! We have access to two different types of chamomile thanks to Young Living. They actually come from two completely different plants, making their chemistry and scents somewhat different, although sharing much of the same properties.

Roman chamomile is soothing and calming, and German chamomile promotes feelings of peace and relaxation. They are both great oils to add to your bedtime routine. Use a drop with some carrier oil and put on your feet, or add to the diffuser for its sweet and warm scent as you drift off to sleep.



VALERIAN

I wasn’t sure what to do with this beauty when I first got it, and quickly realized how wonderful it is to use for sweet support! I honestly think it smells like melting butter (and who doesn’t really love that, come on!). It is calming and grounding, and is a great oil to use particularly to support restlessness. When you have trouble falling asleep or keep waking up in the night, this is a great oil to reach for!



PEACE & CALMING

This is one of our FAVS! It's like a magical unicorn oil!
Peace & Calming and Peace & Calming II are both such great oils.
The beauty is in the name—who doesn’t want that when they are going to bed at the end of the day?
Diffuse it before bedtime to create that quiet and relaxing atmosphere before putting the kiddos to bed or to help unwind at the end of a long day.

Tell me all the things! Favorite use or story with Peace and Calming?!



TRANQUIL

This roller is one of my nighttime favorites! It already comes in a perfect roll-on blend to put right on the bottoms of your feet or on your wrists and back of neck at night. It combines lavender, cedarwood, and roman chamomile. I love to put this on the bottoms of my feet as I start my nighttime routine—you know, washing my face, brushing my teeth, etc. Its warm, soothing scent brings all the relaxing vibes that I’m looking for as I get ready to head to bed!



SLEEPYIZE

Y’all need this oil, especially if you have kiddos! It is so relaxing and peaceful, and it already comes with carrier oil in the bottle as part of the Kidscents line—perfectly formulated for use on littles (although adults like it too!). Roll on the bottoms of their little feet before bed, or down their spine. 

This one is currently out of stock, but you can get it as part of the Reconnect kit (and some other amazing oils as well!).



DREAM CATCHER

This oil has quickly become one of my new favorites! It is so supportive of our emotions and positive feelings, and I love to use it before I go to bed as I clear my mind of all my swirling thoughts and list of to dos that threaten to keep me awake far longer than I want to be. It smells so dreamy and is so peaceful and relaxing!




DREAM ROLLER

This is a new roller blend that I made recently. You will be OBSESSED!

I joke its like a magical rainbow cried tears and I put them in this roller!

We’ve been using it every night before bed. We roll it on the bottoms of our feet or down our spine and it truly is an absolute dream!

I do 10 drops dream catcher, 10 drops white angelica, and 10 drops of orange. Fill the rest with carrier oil. You’re seriously going to love it!



SLEEP TIME ROLLER

This is one of my favorite nighttime roller blends that I’ve made for myself—it lives on my nightstand! I put it on my wrists, shoulders, and back of my neck every night as I hop into bed. Can’t imagine not using this is part of my sleep routine!

I do 10 drops cedarwood, 10 drops orange, 10 drops lavender, and 10 drops vetiver, and fill the rest with carrier oil. It is seriously the best!!!



DIFFUSER BLENDS

One of our favorite ways to get extra sleep support at night is by diffusing our oils! It’s great to start with a calming blend in the evening as the kiddos are getting ready to settle down. Sometimes I’ll have the diffuser going as they are finishing playing, or in their bedrooms to create that peaceful atmosphere before bed. We also love to diffuse overnight as we sleep. It is such a wonderful support to our sleep.

Here are some of our favorite diffuser blends:

+ Cedarwood and orange

+ Peace & Calming (I or II) and orange

+ Gentle Baby and lavender

+ Dream Catcher

+ Roman Chamomile and frankincense

+ Vetiver and northern lights black spruce



SLEEPY CREAM

As I’m getting ready for bed in the evening and going through all my normal sleepy-time routines, I love to use this homemade body butter that I have made filled with so many wonderful sleep supporting oils. Sometimes I’ll just put some on the bottoms of my feet, sometimes I use it to moisturize my whole body (especially in dry winter air) and love that not only am I nourishing my skin, but I’m also covering my body in oils that will give me the best support as I head to bed!

Here is how I make mine—equal parts coconut oil (the kind that is solid at room temperature), shea butter, and cocoa butter. I usually end up doing about a third of cup of each. Stick all the ingredients into your stand mixer or in a bowl that you can use with your hand mixer, and begin to whip together. I always add my oils at the end (15-20 drops of each) and then let it whip together a couple more seconds. One of my favorite combos for sleepy cream is lavender, orange, peace & calming, and white angelica, although the possibilities are truly endless of what oils you can put in!



BABY BUTTER

This whipped baby butter is one of our favorites to use with our kiddos!
It is so gentle and nourishing to their skin, and with Gentle Baby in it, it is also so soothing and relaxing. I love to put this on my kiddos feet at night or use on them after they get out of the bath.
It is seriously such a dream, and I love knowing that every ingredient going onto their skin is so natural and pure. Plus, it is super easy to make!
HEAVENLY! ( see next photo for more!)





LINEN SPRAY

This is one of my favorite DIY recipes that is so easy to make and such a wonderful addition to your home. Truly, you can use it as a general room spray to freshen up any space in your house, but one of my favorite things to do is make linen spray to spray on my sheets and pillows right before bed. I use distilled water and add a few drops of lavender—and there you have it! Shake it really well, and spray it on your sheets and pillows before hopping into bed. You can even spray in on your kiddos favorite stuffed animals or blankies, or even place a drop of oil directly on your pillow! I love when I climb into bed that it smells faintly like lavender. It’s so dreamy, and truly you could use whatever oils you want!



SLEEPESSENCE

Do y’all know that Young Living has this great supplement that they offer for sleep support? It contains four essential oils that enhance our sleep—lavender, vetiver, valerian, and ruta graveolens, as well as melatonin, a natural and well known sleep aid. This is a wonderful natural supplement to enable a full night’s rest!



RELAXING ROUTINES

There are so many wonderful oils and DIYs that we can incorporate into our sleep-time routine for all the wonderful support, but making time for some other relaxing bedtime rituals can not only help us wind down at the end of the day, but make us even more ready for a restful night of sleep.

Here are some of my favorite relaxing routines:

+ Take a hot epsom salt bath with some of your favorite sleepy-time oils. Not only are baths extremely relaxing, but it will help the tension flow out of you, relax your muscles, and give you the benefit of these calming oils as you take a bath!

+ Take a hot shower right before bed! For some, getting nice and toasty and feeling fresh and clean really makes a difference before hopping into bed. Use Young Living’s lavender oatmeal soap to soothe you skin, the evening peace shower gel, or get the shower gel base that allows you to add your own oils and make any combo you want! I love to do this—and am always doing this, and love to make a custom body wash blend with lavender and peace & calming.

+ Use the Relaxation Massage oil before hopping into bed. Rub into sore muscles or just all over to support your skin as well as promote calming and relaxing before bed. And bonus points if you can get your hubby to give you a massage before bed!

Do you have any other favorite bedtime rituals that you love that helps you calm down and unwind before going to sleep?



The following from a proud Mama:

These are my 4 precious angels!

For me, mama to 4 littles, a good bedtime routine for us is SUPER important! Some insight into what this looks like for us!!

1. a routine.
same bedtime every night!

first up, a calming bath with bath salts. I also love a mellow playlist going while they are in there. 

once out of the bath, they put on their jammies and I rub their little backs and legs with YL kidscents lotion and then roll the "dream" roller on their feet and down their spines.

2. One drop of SleepIze on their chests.

3. Fill up all of their diffusers with Peace&Calming or Lavender! 

Did you know YL has the cutestttttt kids diffusers? We LOVE the dino one! 

4. we loveeeee having a box fan going, a sound machine, soft twinkle lights in each of their rooms....all of this really sets the tone to a relaxing, peaceful atmosphere! 

5. DIY pillow spray! gently spray pillows, crib sheets, blankets....if holding a baby, i like to gently mist myself! 

Even my kiddos "lovies" get a spray at bedtime! 

Okay, lets hear it! What are your favorites at bedtime for your littles??



THANK YOU!

Thank you so much for participating in this sleep support class with us! We know how important getting true rest is to every part of our lives, and hope that many of the things that we went over today/tonight were beneficial to you and are things that you can incorporate in your own ways to maximize that sleep support.
