Why does my family need essential oils?

I've wanted to jump into essential oils and this is an amazing deal. After researching too, this is the best company! www.TheDatingDivas.com"]

2 reasons really... ONE-mostly because YOU would absolutely love them!! But TWO-because it gives you more control of your family’s health, AND believe it or not, THEY work! Quite a few of the divas have been using essential oils for years and we could tell you story after story about WHY and HOW they work so well! As a matter of fact, we decided to start our very own DIYHappyHealth Facebook Page where we can share healthy recipes, happy thoughts, and all sorts of other tips on healthy ways to live and be happy! Just a preface, I started to use essential oils in my daily routines about 5 years ago. My husband is self employed and with our health insurance, it is much cheaper to take care of what we can on our own! It is amazing how INCREDIBLE our bodies are and react so quickly to natural remedies!! This past week my hubby threw his back out and we used an oil for that! Deep Blue oil & Deep Blue Rub! He actually went back to work the next day! It was incredible! ALSO, my sweet 86 year old grandma has hip problems, so yesterday she drove out to see me for some of this amazing oil she called it! I put the exact same thing on her, and 4 hours later she is walking much better and feels good again! I love these and you will too!!

Let's start with Nisha, you may recognize this girl from our meet the divas page. She is an absolute rock star and we just love her!Here’s her story on WHY she loves essential oils!

"For five years, I was totally undeniably aware of essential oils, but did not seriously consider them until a good friend of mine brought over 8 samples of commonly used oils.  I had held on to the belief for those 5 years that we were a “healthy family” and we didn't NEED oils. And let's face it - I was super skeptical and thought they were "woo-woo."  Now that I know what I was missing out on and I understand scientifically how they work in the body, I can’t stop telling everyone else about them!

DoTERRA Keychain

It was wintertime when my friend brought over those samples.  My toddler had not been sleeping well because he had the typical stuffy nose and cough children get in the winter.  You know the kind - it’s around for weeks and weeks and you start to feel that mommy guilt and worry and you end up in the doctor’s office because “What if they have an ear infection too?!”

Sick boy

 I don’t know if there is anything more tiring and emotional than NO SLEEP!  Motherhood and being “on alert” keep us from a fully deep sleep anyway, right?!  So imagine how I was feeling after a few nights of listening to my baby cough all.night.long.

9 out of 10 of our Dr. visits were strictly out of mommy guilt - not being able to soothe my child who simply had your run of the mill virus.  I really despise the words, “just wait it out.”  This time though, I had a respiratory blend that I put on my son’s chest that night to help support his breathing and open his airways. And for the FIRST time that week…he slept great (which means I did too!) That was until my daughter woke up with GROWING PAINS the same night and I tried another essential oil on her - and BAM! I was finally back to sleep!

I have had countless other experiences like this putting my new tools in my mommy toolbox to use.  We now use multiple oils every day for various reasons and we LOVE having them in our home at our fingertips.  A friend of mine was talking to me about her migraines just last week and she couldn't believe we don't even have over the counter meds in our house (as my husband also experiences occasional migraines.)"

Can you relate to Nisha and her mommy experiences? With everything that is going around right now, I’m sure a lot of you are experiencing difficulties and heartbreak exactly like this! Your family is sick and you just feel helpless!

Our founder, Tara, doesn't have kids yet but she has absolutely adorable FUR babies! I know you've all seen them floating our InstaGram and FaceBook page! Two of the most darling Yorkies ever and GUESS WHAT?? She uses oils on those cute 'lil guys too!! Here is her story...

GUYS! Lemme just tell you that I wasn't much of a believer until about a year ago, while at a blogging conference with Wendy, I started experiencing one of my usual migraines. Normally these happen at home, so I wasn’t prepared with my normal “pill concoction” and a quiet dark room to retreat to! We were in broad daylight about to walk into a room full of lively {and chatty} fellow bloggers! Worst timing ever!! Wendy grabbed her Past Tense oil and I applied it topically to different points on my body and I could immediately tell the difference. Relief flooded over me as my migraine began to let up. It was a miracle and I hadn’t even popped any pills! I now carry my own Past Tense oil in my purse at all times.

Essential Oils for Dogs

My second experience happened just this past year, when one of our little yorkies, Jaxston, started having Grand Mal seizures. They were terrifying and both my husband and I felt completely helpless! We contacted our Vet who told us that all we could do was wait until they were over…?? We made an appointment to go in and meet with her, but she wasn’t able to get us in for a few days. {We live in Colorado - the land of dog lovers - so vets are booked out for DAYS!} The thought of our sweet pup going through more scary seizures before we could get him in just wasn’t sitting well with me. Candice, another diva, suggested an essential oil combo to try {Frankincense & Serenity}. I quickly got my hands on those oils and when Jaxston had his next seizure, I immediately applied the oils. The length of the seizure was HALF the time of the previous one!! He snapped out of it much quicker. It was like night and day. Now, those are just a few of MY stories, and since diving into this new world, I have had the chance to hear so many more amazing stories of what they can do. I’m slowly building my collection of these life-changing oils and learning about each one. I’m even using a few on myself right now for health reasons!!

Day NINE, peeps! We're almost a third of the way through! Hopefully you are all having as much fun as we are!!  Today's challenge is honestly one of my FAVORITES!!! It's a fun little date night.... and guys, my husband is NOT a reader and he LOVED this challenge! 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

Invite

Task Cards

LOVE CHALLENGE - DAY 9:

This is the BOOKSTORE DATE!!!! It's super easy... and this is FREE!! First up, head on over to our original post, The Bookstore Date to grab the printables (if you haven't already). You'll want both the invite AND the task cards. Feel free to read up in the original post on how this all goes down as well... but I'll also spill the beans here!

In a nutshell - you'll head to a local bookstore or library, armed with your task cards. There are 2 sets.... we were only able to make it through ONE set because we were having SO much fun with each task! So the 2nd one is there in case you have more time or just don't want to quit. Here are the tasks that are on the cards:

#1 - Visit the COOKING section & chose a recipe that you would like to make for your spouse. #2 – Visit the MAGAZINE section & find a quiz in a magazine that you and your spouse could do together. #3 - Visit the CHILDREN’S section & find a book that was a favorite when you were a child or that holds a special memory for you…and read them to each other when you meet back up.

And then on the 2nd task card, it has:

#1 – Visit the JOKE section and pick out a HI-LA-RI-OUS joke to share with your spouse. #2 – Visit the TRAVEL section and find a picture or information on a place you would like to visit someday. #3 – Visit the POEM section and find a poem that describes the way you feel about your spouse.

The “Joke Task” took us for-ev-er! We could not stop sharing jokes with each other and laughing!! One joke each was just not enough for us! I'm telling you, even if you AREN'T married to a bookworm {which I'm not}, this can be a blast!!!

P.S. Don't forget to snap a PIC and post it to your Instagram Feed with the hashtag #Divas30DayLoveChallenge to enter to be one of our 30 Grand Prize Winners and follow us on Instagram (@datingdivas) to see what the NEXT challenge will be!

P.P.S. If you have already done this idea OR you don't think your sweetie would enjoy this... feel free to browse our "Quick & Easy" section and choose another FUN idea you can whip out today!

We invited over a few friends and laughed the entire night. GREAT GAME! #Divas30DayLoveChallenge www.TheDatingDivas.com"]

We have made it to DAY EIGHT! Can you believe it and are you absolutely LOVING it? Your Instagram pics are AMAZING!  So far we've covered everything from getting to know your spouse to spoiling them, so today's challenge should be a cinch after all of that practice ;)

MATERIALS NEEDED:

Not So Newlywed Game

Sheet protectors (or laminate the printables)

Dry erase markers

Pens

LOVE CHALLENGE- DAY 8

We're turning Date Night into Game Night!  Check out the Not So Newlywed Game and snag those GORGEOUS printables to get started!!  This game is a twist on the classic by focusing on questions for married couples that may or may not be so newly wed! ;)

With over 50 questions, you can make this a game just the two of you OR invite over your best buds.  If you would rather play in a group setting, it's helpful to get the printables laminated or throw those bad boys into some sheet protectors. Don't forget dry erase markers or Vis-a-Vis!  If you're competitive like my family, you're gonna want to keep track of those points.  Within the printables is also game play for just the two of you, so grab a couple pens and you can get started!

And then tomorrow's challenge is perfect for the #LiteraryCouple!! ;)

P.S. Don't forget to snap a PIC and post it to your Instagram Feed with the hashtag #Divas30DayLoveChallenge to enter to be one of our 30 Grand Prize Winners and follow us on Instagram {@datingdivas} to see what the NEXT challenge will be!

This year make Valentine's extra special by creating a beautiful piece of artwork that you can display to show your loved one how much they mean to you!

Romantic Wall Art Projects for Valentine's Day

[pinit count="horizontal" always-show-count="1" url="http://www.thedatingdivas.com/?p=64743" image_url="http://www.thedatingdivas.com/wp-content/uploads/Wall-Art-Pin.jpg" description="Wow!! 3 beautiful printables for Valentine's Day to help you get your DIY on!! www.TheDatingDivas.com"]

I love how many different and creative DIY Art projects there are out there to inspire us.

Romantic Wall Art Printables for Valentine's Day

Together, with Kensie Kate's amazing talent, we've created 3 different FREE printables to help you get your inner diva on and create some romantic Wall Art for your man!

First, you will need to decide which of these fabulous printables you want to use.

Print out your chosen wall art and then choose a frame that you think compliments that printable!

Each poster is customizable, so you get to decide how you would like to finish it off.

Let's check out all the printable wall art designs....

What a Difference a Day Makes

Remember those special moments that helped you and your loved one get to that special day!? Now you can frame them with this fun and romantic wall art printable...

What a difference a Day Makes Wall Art

If you have beautiful handwriting, you can simply write your names in.

Or if you are more like me, you can trace your names!

I just found a font I liked and typed our names up, printed it out and centered the font behind my printable. Then I held it up to the window so that I could see it easily and trace the pretty font!

Tracing Cursive Names on Wall Art

If you want to be even more crafty you can make a stencil or use stamps to put names and dates in!

Today I have loved you for...

I love how this Romantic Wall Art piece turned out! The printable numbers look adorable and make this piece an interactive one that you can change on special occasions like Valentine's Day or your Anniversary!

Today I have loved you for..... days Wall Art

We designed this printable in both red and blue so you can choose which color you'd like and put this one together. You will need to grab a couple extra things to put this one together.

I used little mini clothespins and spray painted them silver. I grabbed some white and silver twine, pulled it tight across the picture frame and taped it to the inside before putting my printable in the frame... after checking to make sure it was in the right place, I put the printable in and sealed it all up. Then I placed the numbers where I wanted them and used the clothespins to attach them to the twine!

Today I have loved you for… days

Aren't those numbers adorable??

Crazy in Love Couples Poster

We created 2 different designs in this poster so you can choose the one that has the couples that you love the most. Then just trace or stencil your names in the space provided!

Crazy in Love Couples Poster Wall Art

This printable is also super easy to customize. I used a stencil I created to write our names in so that the font of our names would match up to the rest of the couples!

If you want to create a stencil with the same fonts, they are Populaire and Deming.

Now let's get printing!!

Valentine’s Day Success Checklist http://www.thedatingdivas.com/holidays/valentines-day/valentines-day-success-checklist/ http://www.thedatingdivas.com/holidays/valentines-day/valentines-day-success-checklist/#comments Wed, 21 Jan 2015 12:00:58 +0000 http://www.thedatingdivas.com/?p=64946 Valentine's Day Checklist

Create your Spouse's DREAM Valentine's Day!

With the hearts, chocolates in every aisle, and the cutest stuffed animals- there is a lot of pressure to have the perfect Valentine's Day.  When it comes to big ticket holidays, communication in my family is super important.  I don't always mean to put so much pressure on my husband, but what's not to love about a holiday all about love?!  Plus, it's pretty much our favorite time of the year with these ladies! Celebrating love and not stress is what inspired this fail-proof checklist!  Don't let your pending social media newsfeed stress you out, instead plan ahead!  This Dating Divas checklist will ensure that you have an AMAZINGLY ROMANTIC Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day Checklist

My honey will definitely appreciate this! www.TheDatingDivas.com"]
Here to help create a PHENOMENAL day of love is our amazing designer Jennafer of OhCreativeOne, with this GORGEOUS checklist!  This cleverly designed checklist is guaranteed to change your entire outlook on planning a heart-filled Valentine's Day!  It's easy-to-use and in turn, you're about to have a FABULOUS 14th.

Valentine's Day for Couples

This is a FANTASTIC checklist that is flexible for any type of couple and allows for personalization as well.  Whether you're on the run or are able to fill this in together, this is a great resource for the upcoming holiday!  The FIRST STEP is simple...print that baby out!  The SECOND STEP is a pick-your-own-adventure.  You can either fill it in together or cut it in half and give the copies to your spouse once filled out.

The left-hand side is great for listing a DREAMY Valentine's Day.  I checked off what sounded like a perfect evening for me and my husband.  Let's be real, we have all missed out on something important that was said in passing.  This helps prevent miscommunication and easily lists out expectations...like remembering to bring home a copy of You've Got Mail and a Box of Chocolates.

There is even a NOTES section which is great for listing out more personalized details (i.e. I LOVE Stargazer Lilies and here is the number for a great florist).  With the success checklist in hand, my Valentine then knows what type of dinner I would like, if we're exchanging Valentine's Day gifts, and if a movie night would be the perfect opportunity to snuggle or if I'm down for more of an action flick.

The right-hand side is then great for him because he can check off all of the things that he has accomplished and still needs to get done.  This will hopefully relieve some stress from the holiday and instead give you more time to focus on what it's all about...LOVE!
