Cinnamon and Lemon and Clove, Oh My!

Freedom Fridays

Continuing our October series on things that bring greater freedom, today I have a tip for emotional freedom and a practical one for daily life.

1. People Who Believe in You

It’s a wonder what spending time with uplifting people can do. Their attitude is contagious! A few weeks back, I messaged my friend, Elise, about some things I’d been wrestling with. A certified life coach, Elise offered to strategize some things with me. I already adored her from our time together on the God-sized Dream Team book launch and website. In the past, I’ve been hesitant about selecting the wrong person to ask for help, but I felt very peaceful about speaking with Elise.

I was not disappointed. Our conversation were such a gift. Some people are simply good listeners and encouragers. Having someone accepting you in all the messiness of your life and cheering you on to progress with both validation and concrete steps is, well…


It confirmed for me that I wasn’t as off track as I feared…and even if I was, there is always a way to turn it around. I felt heard, celebrated, validated, encouraged, and challenged.

And it reminded me that surrounding myself with people like Elise can dramatically impact the trajectory of my life.

2. All Things Thieves


This is my not-so-secret weapon for this time of year. With school in full swing and winter right around the corner, building a strong immune system is a priority for my family. So many factors contribute to a healthy immune system, but this essential oil blend is a huge tool for us. It contains Cinnamon Bark, Clove, Lemon, Rosemary, and Eucalyptus, which are constituents that are high in antioxidants.  Eucalyptus in particular supports the respiratory system well.

We try to use Thieves in some form multiple times a day. It’s a bit of a superhero to us and another tool we try not to run out of.



Not only do we use the oil blend in things like tea or in the diffuser (where anyone in the room can benefit) but also by using other products that have Thieves in them. I brush my teeth with Thieves Aromabright toothpaste every day–no worries about needing to call Poison Control if it is swallowed! We have Thieves Foaming Hand Soap in our bathroom, and I reach for Thieves Household Cleaner for all my household surfaces and to clean my fruits and veggies. I even made some simple hand sanitizer with Thieves in it for all the kids to take to school .

I find it very freeing knowing that I am prioritizing our health in two ways by incorporating Thieves int our daily rhythms: I am protecting our health by using nontoxic household products, and I am directly supporting our immune systems by inhaling and consuming the Thieves oil blend.
