Three Minutes to Better Health

3 minutes to better health

Are you looking for a QUICK, EASY way to improve your health and wellness? You can be on the road to feeling great in just a few minutes a day!!! How….?

Well, let me start by saying I am a changed woman. I never knew that a few minutes could make such a difference in my health and wellness. Before I tell you my little secret, I want to share a snip of my journey to wellness.

Diet and Exercise

I have always made it a point to do my best to eat a healthy, balanced diet and exercise up to five times a week. During my fourth and fifth pregnancy, I had gestational diabetes. After my fifth pregnancy, I started a gluten-free diet (Beyond Diet) which helped me and my family tremendously. I felt pretty good! However, I still had a weak immune system (since childhood!), I was moody, tired, and I knew I was not at my highest potential. Finally, last year when I was pregnant with my sixth child, I was on the search for improved health and wellness.

And then I discovered…

Essential oils while visiting my sister (My Testimony). I was a skeptic at first. In the past I tried essential oils that I purchased online or at the health food store. I confess that I didn’t understand how essential oils worked or how they are absorbed into the body. But when I started using 100% Therapeutic Grade Young Living Essential Oils, I got educated and I was AMAZED! I was AMAZED at how great I felt! I was AMAZED at my improved immune system (FINALLY!). Wow, what a difference! I never knew the many ways Young Living essential oils could be used to improve my health and wellness.


My husband was a skeptic at first too, but now he is reaching into the cabinets for oils. He takes them to work and packs them for business trips. My kids can testify to the power of essential oils, right down to my baby girl who was soothed from the irritation of chicken pox this week with Young Living Lavender Essential Oil. Through pregnancy, labor, postpartum, right up to today, essential oils are part of my family and our daily regimen. In just three minutes, I start my day off with a bang and get my kids feeling good.

See how I make it work for us.

A Few Minutes a Day?

YES! Three minutes! I am a Homeschooling Mom of 6 and I always have very eventful days! I have experienced the many benefits of using Young Living Essential Oils. In a few minutes every morning:
RC oil


Lemon- water


  • I fill a glass with water and add couple drops of Lemon essential oil for my gentle morning cleanse and hydration.


Joy-in my heart


  • I fill my home diffuser with water and add a few drops of both Orange and  Cedarwood essential oil. I like to diffuse this mix during my homeschool day because it promotes what I call a “calming concentration.” It helps my children focus and it keeps me calm. (and I still have a 15 seconds to spare!)


We use  oils throughout our day, but at a minimum, I do my 3-minute routine. It helps to reduce stress, which does major damage to our bodies. I also have some midday favorites, and a wonderful nighttime essential oil routine for me and my family. Stay tuned for more from my 3-minute series!

Imagine what benefits you can experience in a few minutes a day!

    1. You are welcome! They have been life changing for us. We use them every day. It is amazing how different essential oils have so many health benefits. Thanks for sharing your time with me. Blessings.


    1. I know how you feel. As moms we often put ourselves last as we tend to the needs of others. Take baby steps and start with a short wellness routine. Your body will thank you for it. You’ll start to feel better and have more energy to take on more! My baby girl just turned a year old and only now am I starting to catch up with stuff here and there! We underestimate the time it takes to recover and get back into “normal” life after having a baby. You are doing a wonderful job, Jahaira. Be blessed my friend.

    1. Thank you so much!!!! I had a good time enjoying food, celebrating friendship, and indulging in EOs all with a good dose of JESUS! Let me know what you a hoping to accomplish with your morning and I will help you select oils. There are many ways to use oils with working out. You will be amazed! Blessings.


      1. I could use energy in the morning. I’m usually good once I “wake up” but I am NOT a morning person even though my kiddos insist on me trying to be one. ha. And I could use something for my muscles after workouts, and I get anxiety and have emotional highs and lows sometimes (particularly in the winter). 🙂 So anything that would be beneficial in those areas would be great!

        1. Sounds like a great goal! I have put together a regimen for you. There are many Young Living Essential Oils (YLEO) you can use, but I put this together based on what you get in the Premium Starter Kit just to keep it simple:
          “Wake up Mom”: Keep peppermint by your bedside. When you wake up, open the bottle and inhale deeply and exhale 5 times. Dilute 1:1 (1 drop of peppermint, 1 drop of carrier oil) and apply to temples and back of neck and chest. If you desire, you can add a drop to your morning beverage or take the peppermint challenge like you did at the make and take.
          “Calm Mom” Lavender or StressAway. Because your highs and lows may happen throughout the day, I would recommend wearing a diffusing locket ( and allowing the oils to diffuse around your neck throughout the day. If that is not an option, you can use 1-2 drops of either oil in a carrier oil 1:1 and apply to temples, back of neck, and shoulders and then cup your hands over your nose and mouth and inhale deeply and exhale 5 times. Repeat as needed throughout the day.
          “Sore Mom”: You can use either Peppermint or Panaway. Both of these would be best diluted 1:4 in a carrier oil. This will help stretch the oil over a larger area of your body. For example, if you are using it on your sore quads, use 1 drop of Peppermint/PanAway and 4 drops almond oil and rub into your legs. You can add 1 drop of Copaiba to the mix if you are super sore. Let me know how this works for you. We can adjust the oils as needed. I also have many other YLEOs recommendations that you can use that are not included in the starter kit. Blessings!


          1. Wow! Thanks so much!!! As soon as I can buy that started kit I’m going to have a great routine. 🙂 I gotta start saving my “allowance” now. 😉
