If you suffer from urinary tract infections, this is a great article by Dr. Mercola saying, “D-mannose helps to nourish your healthy flora because it doesn’t affect “friendly” bacteria. It doesn’t kill any bacteria—it just renders them unable to stay in your urinary tract.”
It’s so hard to know who we can trust anymore when it comes to choosing the brands of foods that we feel are safe enough for our families to consume. This article is very informative!
Elderberry syrup has been reported to be helpful for being able to prevent or facilitate recovery from viruses like colds and flus. Taste’s good too!
This article will help you to understand what “organic” means on food labels. It’s not always what you think…
This is another way to stay blissfully well: Making your own ice cream from fresh fruits! You can take it one step further, if you like, by buying organic fruits to avoid pesticide toxicity and GMO’s. Enjoy!

About the oils
Using the highest quality therapeutic-grade essential oils and leading-edge technology, Young Living has developed a new line of products designed to help people of every age live healthier and happier lives. Their state-of-the-art laboratory and cutting-edge production facility ensure that every Young Living product consistently leads the industry in purity, quality, and effectiveness.
How can I use them?
I have used these oils for skin problems, viruses, bacterial and fungal infections, back, neck, and muscle pain, emotional and chakra balancing, natural home cleaning, breast infections like mastitis and plugged ducts, and during labor and birth for calming, and more.
Why Young Living Essential Oils?
I use these oils because of the high quality, and the track record of amazing results I have experienced personally, for my family and my clients. I also use them, if needed, with my energy work and thought work sessions to facilitate and support the work.
What’s wrong with the cheaper oils?
The bottom line is that you don’t know what you’re getting and adulterated oils can present dangers to consumers.
One example is Lavender oil. Solvents can be added, that have no smell but increase the volume. Some companies use a hybrid called lavandin and cut it with synthetic linalyl acetate to improve the fragrance, but lavandin has high levels of camphor and can burn the skin. I have used true lavender oil for burns for over 25 years, but if it was made from the hybrid lavandin, the pain can intensify and the burn may become worse than before this adulterated lavadin based oil was applied. (Excerpts from Essential Oils Pocket Reference, 4th Ed., p.13-14)
This is why it is very important to purchase oils from a company you can trust. “Adulteration is such a major concern, that every batch of oil that comes into Young Living must be tested by highly trained European laboratories which utilize AFNOR standards. Batches that do not meet the standards are rejected and returned.” (Essential Oils Pocket Reference, 4th Ed., p.13)
I offer classes on how to use essential oils safely for first aid and minor ailments and conditions in the home. You can view them on the Class Registration page. http://blissfullifevillage.com/registration-for-classes-and-services/

This is a great article! I love my old cast iron skillet. It was my mother’s skillet and the one she used when I was growing up.
