Many of us “oily” users are asked, “why do you use them, what makes them so special?” Oh, how many of us wish we could really tell you what is going on in our homes. However, because we represent and market for a company, we cannot tell you all of the glorious blessings that we would love to share.

What we can do is share a few thoughts with you all . . . ask yourself this, “Do you believe in the power of God?” “Do you believe He is our creator?” If you do not believe in these things, this post will not be for you and you may want to visit some of our other pages/posts and skip this one.

For those that do believe, like all of us here at The Oil Posse office, then you have to know God would not put us here without providing us with the means of supporting our physical beings. We have what we need to keep ourselves supported, vibrant, and happy! He has provided us with all of this. Lord, we thank You for Your gifts!

What makes the company we get these from so special? It is their dedication to providing us with as high of a quality and as pure of an oil as they were intended for us to have and utilize. If you have not already done so, please take time to visit Young Living’s “Seed to Seal” website. Really dive into all of it, watch the videos, read the information. It is what sets them apart and makes them the world leader in essential oils.

Believe in the gifts God has given us, support your physical being, and enhance your spiritual connection with God. You HAVE been PROVIDED!

Turmeric: “Happy” Seasoning Recipe

DIY_HappySeasoning_Preview

If you have not read or heard about all of the amazing benefits of turmeric, you should seriously take a few minutes to check it out. Due to federal regulations, we are not able to provide you with the specifics but it is a wonderful seasoning that will provide a lot of great support for your body systems. We call it our “happy” seasoning and use this on just about everything. It is beautiful on an omelet sprinkled with additional black pepper and parsley!

DIY “Happy” Seasoning Recipe

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup Garlic Powder
1/2 Cup Onion Powder
1/2 Cup Oregano
1/4 Cup Coconut Sugar
1/4 Cup Turmeric
1/4 Cup Ground Mustard Powder
1/4 Cup Salt-Free Chili Powder
1/4 Cup Paprika
1/4 Cup Ground Cumin
1/4 Cup Black Pepper

Directions:

Place all ingredients in a dry VitaMix blender (or high speed blender of your choice) and blend on high speed for about 30 seconds (give or take) or until well blended.

Store in an air-tight container. Makes approx. 3 1/4 cups

You can literally use this seasoning on just about everything! It is fantastic on omelets, veggies, meats, etc. Lightly cover broccoli with olive oil (we use a mister) then shake on this seasoning and roast the broccoli in a 375 degree oven for approx. 20-30 minutes (exact time will depend on how you like your broccoli cooked, longer roasting time equals softer broccoli).

This seasoning recipe made enough to fill my neat stainless steel dredge (seasoning shaker) and another container (see photo above)! I truly wish I could have showed you how beautiful the pork shoulder looked when it came out of the oven BUT my family dug into it too quickly. It really was that good!

Thieves HouseHold Cleaner: DIY All-Purpose Wipes

CW_ContainerWipes

This post is super exciting! It brings together the ease of quick clean-ups with the fresh scent of Thieves Household Cleaner.

It is quick and easy to make your own all-purpose wipes. Don’t worry we will walk you through the process.

CW_AllSupplies

Supplies Needed:

1 Container — we used an empty wipe (or baby wipe) container
1 Gallon Distilled Water
1 Bottle Thieves Household Cleaner
200 quality coffee filters

Instructions:

Fill container of your choice with approx. 4-6 cups of distilled water. We filled our empty wipe container about half full (see below).

CW_HalfWater

Now add 2-4 tablespoons of Thieves Household Cleaner. We added 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp) and this is what it looked like (see below) but we may add just 2 Tbsp for the next batch. Place lid and give a gently swirl.

CW_THHCAdd

Now add coffee filters and mash down until covered with the cleaning mixture. Place on lid, turn upside down and allow to sit upside down for just a minute or two, then turn upright.

CW_AddCoffeeFilters200

That’s it! You’re DIY all-purpose wipes are now ready to use on just about anything that needs to be cleaned.

CW_ContainerWipes

I’ve seriously not found anything, yet, that I could not clean with the Thieves Household Cleaner. Just be sure you test a small spot if using on anything questionable.
