The Top 7 Essential Oils for Self LOVE and Acceptance

Welcome to the month of LOVE.
It seemed fitting, for the month of February, to share my top 7 essential oils for loving yourself and truly embracing the Devine feminine that you are.

When you use the finest vibrational essential oils in alignment with our loving goddess intentions, affirmations and mantras there is something incredibly magical that happens.

The frequency of that oil, (sourced sustainably and ethically with the greatest care through our process) ignites with the frequency of your thoughts creating a powerful interaction, fortifying your vision.

You can use Young Living essential oils in so many incredibly versatile ways, adding them to your smoothies or food creations as pure flavours with health benefits, inhaling straight out of the bottle for an instant uplift, by diffusing in your home or by using them topically through a sensual massage, in your skin care and even your personal care products.

Essential oils are naturally empowering, protective, cleansing and are a powerful tool to have in your daily life tool kit.

So what are the greatest oils for self love and acceptance?

1. Joy
Did you know that over 25 years ago, our Devine JOY essential oil blend was actually named LOVE blend. This phenomenal blend consists of such a delicious aroma that is perfect for any women as a perfume or an addition to any morning routine such as in a bath and shower gel base. I use JOY essential oil every morning when I jump out of the shower, applying it to my breasts, on my heart chakra and even on my beautiful belly. Joy was created by measuring the MHz of humans that were in a joyous state...... aligning the plant MHz with human MHz. Consisting of oils such as bergamot, lemon, ylang ylang, rose, geranium and jasmine to name a few, I believe JOY is the oil for epic self love.

As you apply your Joy oil you could affirm "I am overflowing with joy, vitality and energy - I am unstoppable!"

2. Sensation
What can I say, this blend is pretty sensational!
Incredible in the bedroom or the bathroom, when you add this blend to your daily routine, it's bound to be a super sensational day. Add to your moisturiser, make up a massage oil (or get your hands on YL sensation massage blend), diffuse in the bedroom or in the bathroom during your morning shower.

As you apply this luxurious oil you could affirm "My body is sensational, my mind is focused and creative, my heart is overflowing with peace and my soul is soft and tranquil"

3. Acceptance
About 4 years ago I delved into Louise L. Hay's inner self love and acceptance mirror work. Safe to say that this daily practice totally transformed the way that I looked at myself, the way that I talked to myself and the way that I saw myself in society. 
YL Acceptance blend is another floral fragrance blend, straight from Mother Earth, that really allows you to accept all that is and where you are in your journey. It enables feelings of self love and self worth to flow freely over your gorgeous body. Containing many powerful oils such as frankincense, Sandalwood, geranium, rose, coriander, citrus, Davana and German chamomile, this blend will leave you feeling grounded, worthy and fulfilled. This blend stimulates the mind, compelling us to open and accept new things, people or relationships in life allowing one to reach a higher potential. May also help overcome procrastination. 

As you apply to your chosen area you could affirm "I love and accept myself. I acknowledge my own self worth and my confidence is soaring."

4. Sacred Mountain
A sacred blend that contains ylang ylang and conifer essential oils that evokes a sense of serenity, tranquillity and peace. I apply this oil before I meditate, if I am surrounded by vibrant kids at a park  or if I am in crowds or on public transport. It teleports me into a safe, sacred mountainous haven and it smells delicious so great as a perfume or in the diffuser while working on your sacred business ideas.

Instil strength, empowerment, grounding and protection with the spiritual feeling of being in a sacred environment. 

As you apply or diffuse you could affirm "I am safe, protected and strong. I am at peace with all that has happened, is happening, and will happen because I know that everything is towards my highest good."    


5. Progessence Phyto Plus
Featuring the exquisite oils of frankincense, peppermint and other essential oils that help women find the balance that nature intended. Enhancing moisture and smoothing the skin, this pioneering blend works wonders with our body loving on our hormones and centring our emotions. Perfect for those who have given birth or anyone over the age of 35 years old. 

I apply this morning and night to my wrists, neck or thighs. Another yummy earth perfume without the synthetic fragrance that cause havoc to our endocrine system.....

As you apply your could affirm "I am a sexy sassy goddess who is in alignment with her Devine Feminine power. I am centred, I am balanced and I am patient and calm."

6. Lady Sclareol
An alluring and delightful new blend from Young Living. Perfect perfume to wear infusing into your delicate system, to empower women to step into their feminine nature. Strikingly soothing, calming and relaxing this girly blend will help you navigate your way into the self care zone and enrich your life in many wonderful ways. Your thoughts create your reality, so use your thoughts wisely.

While rubbing this blend into your chosen areas, you could affirm "Love is my birthright. I am a manifestation of this love. I am loving and loved by many."

7. Forgiveness
The uplifting, fresh and comforting aroma of forgiveness aids in supporting the ability to forgive yourself and others while letting go of negative emotions, enhancing personal growth and self acceptance. Containing unique essential oils like Melissa, Angelica, Jasmine, Helichrysum and Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood. This oil enhances self love when you release, let go and forgive. 

May help release hurt feelings, negative emotions and memories and move past emotional barriers to attain a higher awareness.

As you apply your forgiveness essential oil you could affirm "There is no love without forgiveness and there is no forgiveness without love. I truly Love and forgive myself. I am aligned with my heart, soul and truth."

I hope you have enjoyed learning about the top self loving and accepting oils that Young Living offer. Enhancing, elevating and empowering. There is nothing quite like the quality and the purity of these pristine oils, gifts from our farms to your home.

Creamy Raw and Dreamy.....

Caramel Tangerine Passionfruit Dream Slice

Getting creative in the kitchen is one of the most self soothing, self loving and self caring things you can do for your gorgeous body and soul!!!

Working with whole food goodness straight from Mother Earth brings about a sense of vibrancy, gratitude and fulfilment especially when you know what is in your creations and how it's going to energise, nourish and feed your cells. 

I love supporting and connecting with local inspirations who are positively impacting this planet.
Scott Mathias from the Sunshine Coast, QLD, is one clever and creative raw food chef who empowers families with his delicious local plant based food delights. He has a delicious cafe called GoVegan Deli in Thomas Street Noosa with a friendly, approachable and kind heart.

The following recipe has been inspired by Scott's Coconut Cashew Zabaglione with seasonal fruit. (out of his second book 'Raw Vegan Meals') Thanks Scott!! x

Now before I start, I have to be honest, I had no idea what Zabaglione was.... thanks to google I now know that it is a famous Italian dessert, traditionally made out of egg yolks, sugar, marsala and sweet wine.... hmmm... so now to swap over those ingredients that don't energise and nourish our cells.

This is my re vamped version with YL culinary essential oil of course - 
Optional for added awesomeness :)     

** How exciting that the first three ingredients also form the basis for an outrageously raw phili cream coconut cheese.


500g cashews soaked overnight
350 ml organic coconut cream (or milk) 
1 dessert spoon of coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 cup soaked overnight dates 
3 drops of YL tangerine essential oil
2 tbs passionfruit pulp 

Drain cashews and dates, place all ingredients together and blend.
Taste for desired sweetness (may like to add coconut nectar or maple syrup however I felt the dates gave enough sweetness) 
Place in a fancy tray, slice tin or individual cups. 
decorate with fruit of choice (I used fresh pineapple)
And place in the fridge... perfect for a dessert or place in freezer if you would like frozen delights. 
Slice up when you have visitors pop over!!!  

Why add tantalising tangerine?
I use this essential oil and other citrus oils on my stomach, butt and thighs after I have a shower.... 
I also add them to my water through out the day and love having citrus in my diffuser..... 
I also know that this oil is extremely uplifting, motivating and refreshing for the soul!!! 

I hope you give this delicious and simple whole food recipe a go and that it also brings you JOY!!!
And that you love it as much as I have.

Thank you for stopping by, it fills my heart up with so much LOVE!

May your soul shine brightly and flourish with the power of plants and Mother Nature. 

Love and JOY,
Amy Joyous xx

Do you have sensational showers?

Sacred Shower of gratitude 💗

We have them everyday and for some a couple times a day..... or for others...  a couple of times a week...


A beautiful time to indulge in self care, at its best... 
I've mentioned mirror work which has changed the way I truly look at my inner self....
Now lets delve into shower work...
With essential oils.
Before I have a shower.....
I enjoy selecting three oils that resonate with me for the day....
To support my emotions, intentions and focused thought for the day or week.

This morning it was;
Melissa, Stress away and Melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree). 

The past week for me was HUGE and I have felt emotionally drained most nights.... dealing with the needs of two daughters at 6 and nearly 8 years old. Giving them my all when running my own biz..... and doing the daily house hold chores .... its hard! 
Life is in constant flow... and in constant action.... ongoing change, ongoing acceptance. 
Flowing with the ever evolving and flowing changes in life.... 

So to cope in an aromatic way :) lets have a sensational shower experience! 
Starting with Melissa, (lemon balm)
I close my eyes and inhale deeply for one minute,breathing in and out........ as I feel the droplets of shower water washing over my naked stimulated body, feeling different sensations as the incredible fresh scent of lemon balm calms and uplifts my mind encouraging a positive out look....
I then change to stress away. The incredible smell I'm receiving through my nostrils is amazing......   This blend helps calm my nerves when my mind wonders into the "what if this happens"  future.... restoring, rejuvenating and promoting pure relaxation.
After breathing this in with closed eyes visualising calm, I then grab cleansing tea tree... I close my eyes inhale freshness, clarity and purity then exhale the chaos that I have created in my mind. 
I Inhale gratitude and exhale frustration. 
Inhale love, exhale fear..... 
Feel it deep down and smile for this time of self love you have given your sacred body...... 
Why not create your own shower experience and set your day up to be Totally Joyous xx

Turmeric Tangerine Hummus

Turmeric Tangerine Hummus

Who doesn’t like a good dip :) 
Dip it, mix it, fold it and spread it onto anything you desire……. I have been having it wrapped up in our rice paper wraps this week… yummo! 

So I got this recipe off Gary Mehigan’s - Comfort Food booklet.     
Re vamped it and added an oil of course :) 
I suppose it has been a week of comfort food for me as it has been that time of the magical month.….. I feel very creative during this time of the month (after the first day……)  and love getting creative in my kitchen! 
So for years now, I have been making my my own skin and personal care (or get it from the YL range) however I now see a HUGE need to make our own whole food dips, breads, wraps, crackers, shakes and even wontons, preservatives and harmful toxins can be present in many things. 

So just to let you know, according to the chemical maze by Bill Statham (an awesome shopping companion!) 
no. 211 = Sodium benzoate, is petroleum derived used as a preservative. potential effects are; Hyperactivity, people sensitive to aspirin may wish to avoid, may damage DNA cells, skin irritation, headache, stomach upset, asthma, prohibited in food for infants, found in jam, soft drink, fruit juice, pickles, pet food, vaccines, cosmetics and medicines…   

EKKKKK …. So this number 211 is present in lots of things including most shop bought dips! Why bother with all that, when you can make your own;

Would you like to try a Hummus with a difference?

Hummus Revamped:

1 x 400g can chickpeas or drained and rinsed 200 g click peas soaked over night (cook simmer 45 mins and cool) 
1 clove garlic
1/2 tbs sea salt
2 tablesppons cashew butter or peanut butter
juice of 1 lemon
80 ml extra virgin olive oil 
pinch of turmeric
2 drops of YL tangerine oil

Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor. 
Serve with toasted turkish or sour dough bread, pita bread, crackers or cucumber.
Enjoy and well done for making a simple yet delicious dip with no added nasties xx

Want to get creative with your own oils?

Thank you for stopping by!!

7 Life Changing Ways Young Living has supported me.....

The REAL Wellness RevOILution:
Starts with Real soil and a Real heart....

The following is my very own personal experience "my story" from the last 8 years of using Young Living and natural wellness products. 
Before that I used to buy my 'essential oils'  from health food shops and supermarkets, I had 'all purpose liquid'  oils with a wooden box, I made candles with what I believed at the time was with essential oils, however just synthetic fragrance.... I remember, around the time I was 17 years old... wow, that was 20 years ago!! and before that... Mum?!?! I remember using a big fat Eucalyptus bottle that said POISON on the top in capital letters....... and we would inhale that with steam when we chesty..... 

Anyway, I have not only found the most exquisite therapeutic oils that make my heart sing, however....... the its the lifestyle, the people, the values and the vibes..... and the impact this company is having on a global scale consciously.... all of this makes my heart sing. 

Best of all. 
I get to Lead with love and purpose around my daughters....... and thats a beautiful thing. 
I have let go of the guilt, the shame, the wondering what they are doing, eating and how they are being, when with their daddy. I know they are safe and loved deep down and that is what I focus on.
So when I am in their presence I love to empower them with joyous choices and beautiful nourishing wholeness.  

Thank you for stopping by and reading my words. 
Im am truly appreciative!!! 

7 areas of my life that Young Living has completely transformed;  

Me laying in the lavender fields at one of the Farms,  Mona, Utah

1. 8 years ago … my body transformed. Following my studies and love for the great outdoors, nature and science, I went to a four hour workshop with mum to learn about essential oils and natural wellness and instantly fell in love with the idea of a blissful Raindrop Technique. So mum, Zola in the pram at 4months and I walked away that day with my very own YL everyday oils collection…. and a new perception on essential oils and using them in the kitchen!!! WOW..... After Jen gave me a mini 5 RT demo, I felt amazing and was hooked…. I knew these oils were something special….  That next week I booked into the level 1 Raindrop Technque course and the rest is history…. After years of sailing as a child, I believe I put my body out of balance, after two session in one weekend, my muscles and joints felt amazing and now I feel more balanced, centred and at ease. 

My gorgeous gals with their fav oils... Indie with stress away and Zola holding Abundance xx

2. Babies and kids…. As a parent we all want the very best ingredients for our family. My girls are both at school now, and for the first 6 years of their life, essential oils were, and still are, a part of day to day life for them. From making our own wipes, scrubs, bath salts and more to picking the daily diffuser smell for the lounge room or choosing their own bath and shower gel aroma and showing them the importance of self love and self care. Such an empowering way to educate your kids on the power of plants and mother nature….  and not relying on synthetic drugs, lotions or potions for a quick instant, band aid solution. There are so many gorgeous options in life when it comes to natural wellness and intentional living and I believe that this is one of the most pristine ways to protect your little precious ones skin, immune system and sacred environment.  xx

3. Emotional support during traumatic life events
All of us how through many challenges in life…. some of mine?? Postnatal depression, Separating/Divorce, Sorting our care for our kids, experiencing court and uncomfortable situations, accepting 50/50 equal parenting, caring for a beautiful father with Dementia and then watching him waste away in hospital, thats confronting….. opening up talking about death to kids and moving house primarily due to having your daughter being re enrolled into a new school without being told. That was huge... feeling like I was ripped out of my Narangba community, where I volunteered in the class room. Essential oils have been incredible at uplifting, awakening and clearing thoughts and emotional stagnation.  

The food you can create

4. My fitness, health, nutrition, body self image and self care have dramatically changed…. Pristine health and nutrition sourced from the finest areas on earth. Whole foods, whole oils, wholeness.  I have even traveled to one of there many farms they own and collaborate with to bring us the very best, I have planted lavender meditated in the fields under the snow capped mountains of Utah, watched jousting and……. wow the opportunities, went on an all expenses paid holiday to Bali and got to take my mum!!! 

Here we are white water rafting with like minded people we just met at the start of the Bali adventure who are now our life long friends.....

5. At 23 I had saved up $36, 000 (working in Victoria, within Disability) and set off to travel around Europe and the UK, Thailand, Vietnam, Canada and America. I was always pretty savvy, and saw the value in saving to get what I wanted..... My financial situation changed when I became a single parent in 2013 leaving my marriage with $60 in the bank and two little girls to look after, it was extremely overwhelming as I felt the whole world on my shoulders. Educating myself on the Young Living business: the powers of essential oils an amazing family company and how mlm, relationship marketing or referral business networking work.  I have learnt about the plower of plants, persistence, perseverance, purpose and true heart shattering passion….. Financial independence is possible, who wants a ceiling on their income… as Teri Secrest says :) 
Fund your own future. 
I have chosen to refer people to the Young Living lifestyle and as a result, Young Living compensates me (rewards me) and has given me a chance to create my own conscious career from home, inspiring everyday mums and dads, or anyone who wants a better way to live, that is truly nourishing and toxic free. 

6. Friends and the travel!! 
I have met so many gorgeous friends over the last few years and we all have similar interests. We bind together stand tall, support and empower each other. I love the new global family that you meet as a member of Young Living. A gorgeous conscious community of like minded souls who care about the future of our precious planet and our families…..  Empowering each other with essential education, raising our standards, setting our values while stepping out with a mission to help give families amazing lives through the power of plants, with a purpose and a mighty passion.
I love the energy at our events!

Beautiful souls I have met along the way

7. Feeling proud, leading by example for my daughters and helping restore our precious planet.
YL lifestyle has shown my daughters a beautiful way to live and an understanding of how nature and plants heal our bodies and work in our environments. 
My girls come to me and tell me what oils they need, go get it and put it on their bellies or sores (usually lavender to soothe or purification for itches) I love that they can feel empowered and use their little intuition. 

A life and business (if you choose) that is built on sharing kindness, love and JOY.

Young Living is made from nature + science (wellness), serving, heeling, sharing (purpose) and more quality family time and freedom to choose (abundance) 

Did this spark your interest or resonate with your soul?

I would love to hear from you,

EnJOY choosing your own adventure in life,

Bliss Balls with a Twist

"Accept that instability is inevitable and actually learn to enjoy it" Lisa Messenger.

One of my favourite quotes right now from her book Money and Mindfulness..... Oh what a blessing to read her realness and her savvy heart felt solutions.... if you haven't picked it up it's a great read!

Instability.... I use to fear this word, feel inadequate, feel like I was less of a mum because I chose a different track, separate, my family felt scattered, far from stability....  but we made it work, we scattered lots of love and lots of fun and have accepted from it, learnt from it and now ENJOY having a new un-pathed path to journey along.

I hope you ENJOY these bliss balls as much as I did making them with my daughters!
Sometimes, being a parent, things just don't go the way you planned....... and thats ok. 
Why not add some Acceptance essential oil blend in the diffuser while you are getting creative in the kitchen ;)

However you choose, ENJOY….

Halva Bliss Balls:
I first came across Halva balls years ago when my girls were bubas, I was looking for different food ideas, and just happened to be watching the Today show at my parents house, with my mum, Lola…..  one particular morning…. seeing this Aussie chick…  Lola Berry for the first time pop up on the TV, with her funky name, beautiful blond locks and bright ribbon and headband in her hair… i think I had an instant girl crush as I was so into everything plant medicine and wholefoody so she made Halva balls and I have been making them ever since.. and following the nutritionist journey around town… and now with her new Melbourne cafe Happy Place!…. A bit of an inspiration and on the cover of this Month edition of Holistic Bliss Magazine!!!  :)
