Be a world changer - End Human Trafficking

I get stuck on that title when I read it...

"Be a world changer."

Prior to November 2016, I was interested in essential oils but couldn't bring myself to pay the price for what companies charged. It may seem silly to be expecting for something all natural and pure, but to not want to pay for that. 

It took a lot of research and digging around until I stumbled upon (much like some of you have done for our blog), Simply Earth.

I'm not only passionate about the natural beauty of the essential oils or what the ingredients are, but this company is set out to change the world.

Literally, their website says: "As a business that supplies products that enhance the beauty of our customers, Simply Earth believes it to be a responsibility to help people like Harriet who have been victimized and whose beauty has been abused."

The story of Harriet is quite striking and paints an awful picture.
 "Harriet* ran away from home when she was 11 years old and moved in with a 35-year-old man who sexually and physically abused her.  He convinced her to become a prostitute, leading to drug addiction..."

I get so sad and discouraged that things like this are happening and do happen every single day. I'm passionate about what Simply Earth stands for and what they do for organizations fighting to end human trafficking. The sacrifices that these organizations make to ensure the safety of those who survive human trafficking as well as keeping up the fight to rescue those who have been taken into sex trafficking.

Now that the realness is out there, you can read up on what organizations Simply Earth helps here.

Let's get into what essential oils Simply Earth has to offer!

While looking into essential oils, I found it hard to pick which oils to try and to purchase at that time. It seemed like a lot of money (to me), to fork out and not LOVE the oil. When I found Simply Earth and their subscription box, I was floored at what I could get in the box and what I could DO with the contents. I am absolutely amazed at what I get for the cost. I received a free diffuser with my first monthly subscription. I have downloaded their e-book which is essential oils for beginners. You can grab that here. **I suggest flipping through that if you are looking to use essential oils. It has GREAT details inside for you to learn about each oil and the use!**

I have created a YouTube video capturing all of the goods that I have and the August box that was delivered to my mailbox yesterday! I was so excited to get this box as it contained my ambassador cards with my coupon codes!

I know everyone knows lavender essential oil for relaxation. But do you know 'Tranquility?'
I bet you don't!

A great addition to your essential oil bag, box, or wherever you'd like to store your oils! (Make sure it's dark where you store them!) As you can see on the upper right, the website gives you clear description and ingredients for the oil you are purchasing.

Get in touch with me about how we can make your home natural, chemical free, and smelling amazing!

How about a dessert recipe today! 

  • butter and flour, for greasing the pan
  • 1 + ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 + ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 + ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup (16 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
  • confectioners' sugar, for dusting
  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Butter and flour a 9x13-inch baking pan or line with parchment and lightly grease with non-stick baking spray.
Make the Cake:
  1. In a medium bowl sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together.
  2. In a separate large mixing bowl whisk the egg, milk, oil, and vanilla together until well combined.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and gently fold in with a spatula or wooden spoon.
  4. Scrape the batter into the greased pan and spread evenly from corner to corner - it will be a very thin layer.
Make the Topping:
  1. In a medium bowl whisk the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon together. Pour the melted butter over it and toss together with a spoon until well combined.
  2. Use your hand to sprinkle the crumbs evenly over the top of the batter breaking the mixture apart into big crumbs.
  3. Bake 10 minutes and rotate the pan. Bake 10 - 12 minutes longer or until a toothpick comes out clean from center.
  4. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
  5. Dust the top generously with confectioners' sugar and use a serrated knife to cut into squares or rectangles.
  6. Store tightly covered in a cool, dry place up to 4 days.
