Adoption Fundraising

Hello everyone,

First and foremost, we want to say Thank you to everyone for their overwhelming support in supporting our adoption plans. I have had a few recent questions from individuals wanting to know how they can support us and our journey- more than just a ‘like’ on Facebook. Well, to be completely honest, the biggest area of assistance needed as of now is networking and of course, financial. There are many costs involved with adoption including travel, time off work for interstate legal reasons, attorney fees, paperwork fees, and more! And this all before the normal costs of setting up a nursery for a baby. We know this is where God wants us to be and we are confident that things will line up in time, however, I wanted to put all the current fundraising platforms out there in one place…so here it is:

TAX DEDUCTIBLE PAY PAL DONATION: through our Youcaring fund site- you can find that here:

SUPPORT OUR HOME BUSINESS – PURCHASE AN ESSENTIAL OILS STARTER KIT: 100%  proceeds from this home business are going straight to our adoption fund- we have already added $300.00 this month to our fund from sharing the oily love! You can find that link here:

if you would like more information – please reach out to Chelsea.

PERSONAL DONATIONS: some people have opted to handle donations with us directly – this is more than fine. Please let us know. 

SHARING: if a financial donation or a purchase is not your thing- please consider sharing our profile with your friends, family, church etc. You never know where our birth mother and baby might be. 

 

We feel so loved by the amount of support we have received thus far- but we aren’t at our goal yet… anything you can do will benefit our baby immensely.

DIY: Carpet Freshener

Do you ever wish there was a simple way to remove stingy smells from your carpet that was safe for both your children playing on the floor and your pets?

Me too- which is why our family uses these DIY recipes for our carpet cleaning needs:

  1. We utilize Thieves Cleaner from Young Living in our Hoover Carpet Cleaner rather than the chemical based cleaners.
  2. After the thieves cleaner cleaned carpet dries- we use a DIY Carpet Freshener Powder.

Want the thieves cleaner? Here’s the recipe. See below for where you can get these ingredients too.

Ingredients:

Baking Soda

Purification Essential Oil

Lavender Essential Oil

Lemon Essential Oil

Mason Jar

(Click here to purchase your oil kit- all three of these are included in the premium starter kit)

Directions:

Pour baking soda into a bowl. Drop 10 drops of each oil into the bowl of baking soda. Using a fork, mix the oil/baking soda mix until the oils are evenly distributed.

Poke holes into the lid of the mason jar. Pour oil/baking soda mix into the jar. Screw cap on. Sprinkle over dry carpet and let sit for 10+ minutes prior to vacuuming up.

(this can also be used on couches/rugs/pillows etc)

Enjoy!

Ways of Using Essential Oils

There are many ways of using essential oils. Each of Young Living’s oils are labeled as either Topical/Aromatic. There is also an entire line of Young Living oils called Vitality that can be used as dietary or internally ingested! Here is some information on how you can start using your oils:

AROMATICALLY:

Diffusing oils can help purify the air and neutralize the air around you from mildew, smoke, and other odors. Diffusing can also help to protect you and your family from harmful things we breathe and help support mood regulation.

To inhale essential oils, try these options:

  • Place 2-3 drops in your palm and rub you hands clockwise together- this helps activate the molecules! Cup your hands together over your nose and inhale deeply. Enjoy 🙂
  • Add several drops to a bowl of hot water (hot but no boiling please!). Inhale the vapors that rise from the bowl. For an added benefit, place a toll over your head to increase the intensity of the vapors!
  • Apply a few drops to a cotton ball, tissue, your scarf, your hairbrush, or wearable diffuser necklace and inhale periodically. Enjoy!
  • Diffuse your oils in a cold air diffuser. You can find the options for the Young Living Premium starter kit here!

TOPICALLY:

Direct application onto the skin is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to use essential oils. Topical use can be highly effective as the oils can easily pass through lipid membranes of cell walls penetrating cells and dispersing through the body in a matter of minutes! The best places to put them in my opinion? Definitely the neck, over the heart, and the bottom of the feet. The bottom of the feet are full of nerve endings and large pores allowing for faster absorption of the oils.

TIP: always test the oils on a small area of skin first. As the oils are so pure- they can have different effects on different skin sensitivity levels. Make sure you do what is right for you!

If you don’t want to use the pure oil topically- you can always use a carrier oil! Carrier oils extend oils when applied to a larger area and can also help decrease any skin irritation you may experience. Carrier oils should always be used for children. My favorite carrier oil is coconut oil and vitamin e oil. Other possibilities include grapes oil, sweet almond oil and even good ‘ole olive oil.
