why essential oils

Wanting to simplify and get back to natural options for your family’s wellness?

Essential Oils are a HUGE part of our daily journey to make simple, natural choices for our family. When I look back to where we were 4 years ago when I first discovered doTERRA, I wonder what we ever did without them! We start our day diffusing oils to help set the mood and keep us focused, and use them throughout the day to maintain wellness and reduce chemicals in our home.

It just makes sense! The more I learned about oils, the more upset I was that I had not been using these sooner. Of course God created something to have the perfect blend of constituents that we need for better wellness. The more we look around and see the broken cycle that so many friends and family have slipped into with their health, the more we realize there HAS to be a better way!

Essential oils are the life blood of plants – known for centuries for their beneficial properties and are now being studied extensively as people realize they were the source of what we have been attempting to re-creating in labs all along. They have now become the pure, simple go-to for our family when we need to support all of our body systems, and are also a staple in our cleaning and cooking. SO many unnecessary chemicals now GONE!

Before using anything on you or your family, do your research and make sure you are getting the best quality essential oils around. I chose dōTERRA because I can be assured of their quality and purity. dōTERRA is committed to giving back across the globe while sustainably sourcing their oils to deliver beyond organic results with consistent therapeutic benefits.

This has been a game-changer for us. Guaranteed quality from a company that is committed to sustainable growing and responsible sourcing, an unmatched system of testing for quality! We get an amazing price to be able to use oils as much as we want or need for our family!

Cinco De Mayo Fiesta Menu

FLASHBACK TO 2009!! I found this old post from our Cinco de Mayo fiesta 8 years ago and had to resurrect it. This was SUCH a fun party if you’re looking for some Cinco de Mayo fun this weekend!

If only I knew where my photos were from that year…..sigh.

Thankfully we’ve also come a ways in eating REAL food and there is so much of this that can be done with great ingredients, so lose the Lime Tostitos, Velveeta and the Diet Coke with Lime 😉
One day left before the big Nacho Libre Fiesta and I think I’ve narrowed down the menu.  If you’re thinking of doing a Cinco de Mayo party at all this week here are some recipes and menu ideas I’ve rounded up that may be helpful.  We will have about 20 guests total.  I’ll post a follow-up next week to show how things went!

Taco Bar

  • Carne Asada (steaks thinly sliced and set in this marinade for 24+ hours)
  • Shredded Chicken (chicken breasts in Chipotle Lime marinade for 24+ hours)
  • Ground Beef with the organic taco seasoning
  • Crumbled Mexican Queso Fresco
  • Shredded White Blend Mexican Cheeses
  • Tomatoes, Onions, Lettuce, Cilantro
  • Corn and Flour tortillas from our local Mexican market
    (check and see if you have a local Mexican food market – the quality is MUCH better & they are generally cheaper)

Chips/Salsa Station

  • tortilla chips
  • Black Bean & Roasted Corn salsa
  • tomatillo salsa
    (tomatillos (halved, face down) and corn roasted under broiler, tiny bit of jalepeno, lime juice, onion, garlic, salt, pinch of sugar)
  • mango salsa
    (1 diced mango, can sweet corn, chopped red onion, chopped tomato, cilantro, lime juice, pinch of sugar)
  • guacamole
  • So-bad-for-you chili cheese dip (block of velveeta melted with 1 can hormel chile no beans)


  • Elote (mexican corn on the cob) as featured in Nacho Libre
  • Black Bean Cakes
  • Tostones (fried plantains) with garlic salt (best if plantains are still a bit green but just starting to yellow)



  • Margaritas
  • Diet Coke with Lime
  • Fresh squeezed Ginger Lemonade
