Small Business Saturday

Poor Small Business Saturday. It follows right behind Black Friday, you know, the day that gets all the attention and press. And, little cousin Cyber Monday is right around the corner, ready to capture all your dollars as you shop online for those great deals.

Small Business Saturday

As you recover from Black Friday and prepare for Cyber Monday I want to present an opportunity to you that you may not have considered before. We here at Rooted Blessings are passionate about Young Living Essential Oils and have been talking about them for years. We use them (and many other Young Living products) on a daily basis and have seen and felt their effectiveness.

Beyond the actual products, we are small business owners. I remember the first time I heard of Young Living. I was working full time for a non-profit organization and finishing up my Masters’ Degree. I didn’t have time to help my wife with the business but I trusted her and told her to have fun basically. Not the most supportive response! Anyway, fast forward 4 years and I am now at home full time helping run our small business. [Read more…]

7 Keys to Experience Amazing Health


Years ago when I started this blog I thought the mystery of health was ALL completely bound up in nutrition.  I thought if I ate the right foods and drank the right drinks; if I did it all perfectly my health problems would completely disappear. Now I’ve discovered that it simply isn’t true. In that type of thinking perfection quickly becomes bondage, and perfection is one of the the greatest tragedies that we can live in. This limited view of only part of the self and not the whole self can actually damage our quest to be healthy and well.

I have found this demand for perfection to be true in every community on cyber space and on the home front. It doesn’t matter if we are talking about our nutrition, if we are using our essential oils correctly, if we are parenting correctly, if we pick the right presidential candidate or if we do everything right in our relationships. The idea of perfection quickly becomes a road block and a cause of constant stress and disappointment.    [Read more…]

Getting Started with Essential Oils: The Basics {Part 1}


I am sure you’ve heard the buzz about essential oils.  

If you haven’t heard the buzz then surely you have heard the murmurs.  It seems as though everyone is wanting to get their hands on essential oils these days.  Between Facebook and Pinterest I’m seeing dozens of essential oil posts each day.   Whenever I post a essential oil testimonial on my personal Facebook page many of my friends are always asking more questions about essential oils: how do I use them, what oils are good for what health struggles and where do I get them?   I also get lots of questions about essential oils from people who are rather new to natural or holistic health and may even be skeptical about essential oils, and want to know more about the science behind the oils.

5 Tools to Raise Healthy, Happy Children

5 Tools to Raise Healthy, Happy Children

Unless some of us moms struggled with being really sick before having children sometimes being crazy, crunchy, and wild health conscious seems too difficult or seeming ridiculous to figure out.  I have found that after having children, moms become very in tune that their children may need some other things in their diets to stay healthy.  An increasing number of children have been diagnosed with ADHD, Asthma, and Allergies.  No one can deny it, the Standard American Diet is depleting the health of the each one of us and for sure the mother’s of many babies being born each day.  More and more babies are being born colicky and so sick that they get irritated by their own mother’s milk.
