Semi-cunchymama getting by on oils, snacks & honest connections

Hi, so glad you are here!

My name is Amanda. Take a look around and let me know if I can be of any assistance. My diffuser is pumping some amazing oily goodness.
The cookies are in the oven, they should be done shortly. .... Until then, relax & make yourself at home.

Swipe though for all the deets on this oily life. All the FAQs I commonly get. And keep swiping for some go to recipes & some of my favorite DIYs 🙌🏼🥰

What are Essential Oils?

What’s in these little bottles anyway??

They’re the life blood of a plant. Oils are distilled, cold pressed and derived from the roots, bark, leaves, and flowers of our beautiful earth to create a sustainable and reliable way to give us individual care. When these plants are grown in the right conditions, harvested at the correct time, and distilled with the proper care they can aid in keeping our bodies healthy, well, and happy. You can access the power of essential oils many ways, like aromatic diffusion, topical application, and dietary consumption. These methods bring the pure essence of health-promoting botanicals to your home, family, and life.

We have used oils to support our bodies stay happy & healthy which is how our bodies were intended to be. Essential oils are composed of teeny molecules. These molecules so small that they can pass through our tissues and directly into our cells.  Our systems are super effective and can transport these molecules all over our bodies within a matter of minutes. 

Statements regarding Essential Oils have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. Products in this event are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult your health care provider before using these products.

Why Young Living?

It’s so darn important where your oils come from!

Because remember? I know you. You’re out there trying to give yourself and your loved ones the very best. You’re investing in your future and you care about the sustainability and integrity of the products you use. Young Living has been leading this industry for 25 years. They’re not jumping onto a trend or bandwagon, they created it. They pioneered a movement when everyone thought they were crazy. And we all know that’s where the best and most life-changing discoveries are made. From sheep grazing their lavender fields next to a castle in France as toxin-free weed management to an award-winning green corporate building in Utah, to schools being built in communities so field workers’ children can attend school, to a Seed to Seal promise for every drop of oil that is tested and shipped out to you, Young Living is where the standards of the last century meet the innovations of the next.

I am one of many who was searching for answers. I knew there had to be options for our health that were effective, safe, simple, and easy to share with my friends who were also searching. What I found in Young Living was so much more than I ever bargained for. Energy, vibrance, safe products, radiant skin, convenient solutions, and a community of people who are empowered to make changes. We are always ready to grab hands as you pursue physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial freedom. Join us and find YOUR answers!

This Vs That

Are all Essential Oils the same?

No way!
Not all oils are safe to use in the ways Young Living essential oils are. THIS IS AN IMPORTANT DISTINCTION! 🙌🏼 Those oils you saw at the health store or supermarket or ... on “prime” cannot be ingested the way Young Living oils can.  One thing that is mind blowing is how easy it is for other essential oil brands to have misleading “100% pure” labels - yet contain synthetic oils and additives.  When YL bottles says pure, they mean it. Other companies just can’t compete. Its absolutely crazy! Young Living is the ONLY company that grows it’s own plants from start to finish, and owns their own farms, with the strictest standards around. You can call their offices and book a visit at their farms try and do that with ANY other company. You can’t. Not can you get someone on the phone to explain the ways their oils were derived. Don’t believe me? Call the company that makes the oils you’ve been eyeing. I’ve done it, and that’s yet another reason why I chose YL every time.

Trust is everything. And crazily enough, always trust a company when their items go out of stock and take forever to come back in stock. Let that sink in.

Our responsibilities as parents

Know Better Do Better

As parents, WE hold the key, and are the gate keepers to our homes. 𝘓𝘪𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 & 𝘮𝘦𝘵𝘢𝘱𝘩𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺. WE are the ones responsible for what products come into our home. It’s our job - we must take it seriously. It’s that important. ⁣⁣
some quick FACTS that every gatekeeper should know about what’s lurking underneath your kitchen sink. ⁣⁣
🌿Many chemicals used in household cleaners have not been tested for safety⁣. ⁣⁣
🌿Household cleaning supplies are one of the top five substance classes accounting for calls to the National Poison Control Center. ⁣⁣⁣
🌿Many commercial cleaners contain ingredients that are endocrine disrupting chemicals, carcinogens, or neurotoxins. ⁣⁣⁣
🌿Kids, babies, and pets are even more vulnerable to chemical exposure because they are smaller and cannot get rid of toxins as easily as adults.⁣⁣⁣
It is definitely worth ditching harsh chemicals for a cleaner with plant- and mineral-based ingredients.

Essentials + Frequency

One of the many things I’ve learned from my oily community!


- Every cell in your body, every single living thing, has a vibrational frequency. When we consume things that have frequency (such as plants which are living things), we can increase our body's frequency which will increase our health.

- Healthy human body frequency: 62+ MHz

- Illness starts at 57-60 MHz

- Our bodies are receptive to cancer at 42 MHz

- Death begins at 25 MHz

Essentail oils have frequencies as well, which can raise our bodies’ frequency. They range from 52-320 MHz. One of the most important modalities of essential oils is their ability to raise our body’s frequency to a level where disease cannot exist

- Processed food: 0 MHz, meaning it does nothing positive for your health

- Raw, real food (things that are alive) are the only foods that will raise your frequency. This is why juicing rocks ;)

- The essential oils with the highest frequencies are Rose (320 MHz), helichrysum (181 MHz), and frankincense (147 MHz)

- Coffee: Even holding a cup of coffee can lower your body frequency by 8 MHz (yikes!) Taking a sip lowers it by 14 MHz. BUT! Listen to this: When essential oils are inhaled following exposure to coffee, the bodily frequencies restore themselves in less than a minute. But if no oils are administered, it can take up to 3 days for the body to recover from even one drink of coffee. How crazy is that?

- Negative thoughts decrease our frequency by up to 12 MHz

- A positive thought can increase our frequency by 10 MHz

- Prayer/meditation increase our frequency by 15 MHz

How incredible is this?!

When we treat our bodies well and surround them with things that are raw, vibrant, and alive, we too are raw, vibrant, and alive! :)

Cheers to this self-care journey!

Hey Girl, Hey!

A Sneak Peak of my Why


My name is Amanda. I’m a wife, a mama, a friend and a top knot warrior. I have one kiddo named Leela Rey (if your thinking Futurama & Star Wars, you are correct!). I am married to my best friend, Mike. I am a enneagram 2 so naturally I love to help & therefore the purpose of this blog was born.

If you are looking for a place to learn (+ teach) about all things natural, plant based & toxic-free, then my dear, you have come the right place!

My hope for this little corner of the internet, is to offer another way. There are so many options out there for us to live a healthier life: from the food we eat, to the soap we wash our babies with. But there are so many unhealthy options out there that make it really EASY for us to live an unhealthy life: tired mamas at the supermarket, to overwhelmed to think about which option of detergent is best? (lord knows, we have all been there, ‘on sale? GREAT, in the cart you go!‘.

Who has time to research the difference between organic vs. non? or toxic-free & non-toxic?

Who has time to google the long term affects of EVERY SINGLE product they choose to buy? I mean… is it really that serious? (yes, yes it is!)

Who really wants to get rid of their Amazon dash buttons making ordering so DARN easy? (except when your toddler orders 50 boxes of Bounty Paper towels – another story for another day – haha!)

Not me. Until I knew, what I know now.

I hope this place serves you in many ways. But above all else I want use this place to pay forward ‘all the things’ that I have learned from my friends, my oily community & all the mamas trying to make their homes the safest place for their little people & their big people. I am excited to share all the items we use, buy & make to ensure the best health of our family.

And please note that I have so much more to learn about all things ‘clean’ so if you have recipes & products that you and your family LOVE, drop me a line. I’d love to hear from you.

Until next time….
