my favorite toxin free makeup: savvy minerals


I LOVE this makeup. It doesn’t even feel like I have any makeup on. It’s so versatile. I love experimenting with Savvy and trying new looks. From natural to glam, Savvy can do it all and I feel good knowing this makeup is good for my skin & complexion.
Here is some more in depth information about what is NOT in Savvy Minerals makeup and a look at the beneficial things that are. 🙌🏻
Savvy Minerals has:
NO parabens- Parabens are toxic preservatives. There was a study done with 20 women who had breast cancer. Their breast cancer tumors were biopsied and they all had parabens in them! Our body holds onto this stuff. So scary and so bad.
NO phthalates–Phthalates are found in many scented and cosmetic products, where they stabilize the fragrance, increase spreadability, and enhance absorption. So you’ll find them in deodorants, nail polish (where they help prevent chipping), hair spray (where they prevent stiffness), perfumes, lotions, creams, and powders (including baby lotions, creams, and powders). The chemicals from these products can be absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream.
NO bismuth- Bismuth is usually derived from animals and it clogs pores and causes breakouts. We are happy to say that our makeup is 100% cruelty free!!!
NO talc- Talc is found in many health and beauty products (think baby powder) and it is a known carcinogen. NO thanks.
NO fragrance- Did you know that a company can label “fragrance”in their ingredients list and that can be covering up a 100 different chemicals? I see that as a way to hide what’s really going into those products. Only essential oils are used in this makeup line!
NO dyes- This makeup only uses mica for coloring which is a naturally occurring mineral! Dyes can be really scary. They are known to cause different types of cancer as well as other health issues.

Here’s what IS in this makeup.
Kaolin clay- A white clay that is nourishing and soothing.
Jojoba oil- Filled with b vitamins and is the closest oil to our lips natural oil.
Aloe- This is the base of some of the products!
Essential oils- of course!
*Completely gluten free & vegan friendly.

Get started with your own makeup starter kit here. Make sure to choose member (no monthly commitments, unless you wanna, and seriously no strings attached here). Get 24% off any other product from YL and enjoy all the toxin-free goodness ❤
If you are interested in adding more to your order some of my favorites are the savvy brush set, bronzer (crowned all over), mint facial scrub, and thieves cleaner (great brush cleaner too + can be used ALL around the house)

why I chose young living & faq's


fresh lavender from the young living farm in mona, utah




my journey to natural wellness started with one simple investment...the premium starter kit from young living. 


Last year, I started learning more about the toxins in our homes (stop what you’re doing and download the Think Dirty app on your phone-start scanning your products and be blown away like I was hah).

Once I found out that toxic cancer causing-yucky chemicals were in literally everything we were using on our bodies daily, I knew we had to make a change. I joined Young Living in April of 2017 in hopes that I’d be able to make a few homemade essentials and pursue a healthier lifestyle. Today (as cliche as this sounds), I really couldn’t imagine my life without Young Living and I never want to go back.
When I first started I had NO idea what I was doing or what any of these oils could do. BUT, after purchasing my starter kit & joining, our amazing community taught me everything I know today. And now I’m the one teaching others. Crazy right?

but out of all the other companies out there, why did I choose young living essential oils? that's simple:

-they are beyond organic-made with incredibly detailed and strict standards (check out www.seedtoseal.com for more info). This has such a huge impact, you guys! it means that Young Living controls every single aspect of their production line.
-they own their own farms.
-they plant their own seeds.
-they cultivate their own crops.
-they use essential oils on their plants.
-they oversee everything, literally, from planting the seed to sealing the bottle. They can say with a 100% guarantee that they know what is inside each and every bottle, and that they are pure beyond a shadow of a doubt.
-they never use pesticides or chemicals on their plants. you can even visit their farms all over the world (I went this summer). they weed by hand, harvest, and distill on site using low pressure and temperature to guarantee that every single ounce will be 100% pure and safe with all the plant's beneficial properties uncompromised. they test each oil to ensure quality and if there is a bad batch it is thrown away!
so yeah...that's why 😉



FAQ's


I know it can all seem a tad overwhelming when you're thinking about getting started with young living, but my only regret (literally ONLY one) is not starting sooner. here are some FAQ's I get:

  1. What do you use oils for? Just about everything now! Sleep, skin, hair, emotional support, home cleaning, stress relief, supporting our immune systems naturally, focus & energy, the list goes on & on. You learn as you go. Our team has all the resources you need to start learning about using them 
  2. If I invest in a starter kit, does that mean I have to sell Young Living products too? Absolutely not. We will never pressure you to pursue the biz side if that’s not your jam (however, the opportunity is always open)
  3. So if I’m signing up as a member does that mean I have to order monthly? Nope! If you just wanted a starter kit & that’s it-that is totally fine. You only order monthly if you want to (& here is why you would). You will have your 24% off discount for a year (or as long as your ordering).
  4. Are essential oils safe and do they actually work? Young Living prides itself on its excellent quality (Seed to Seal Promise). They are absolutely safe & support our bodies in many ways (they’re not just a pretty smell). We have seen a huge difference in our health from using them. If you’re interested in how, just ask 

our national park adventure



our adventure to yellowstone & grand teton national park




the snow kissed mountains, the breezy meadows, the grazing bison, all beautiful sites we experienced on our second national park adventure as a married couple. we LOVE exploring national parks together. that’s why for our honeymoon we went to rocky mountain national park and it was a d r e a m. we’ve been itching to keep exploring and we’re planning a trip to salt lake city, utah for a young living convention and thought why not explore yellowstone while we’re out there?

it’s about a 4-5 hour drive from salt lake city so we turned up the lord heron radio (or as we like to call it, “mountain music”) and hit the road. we ended up in victor, idaho in a tiny house for the night and it’s was the cutest little mountain town. the meadows right outside out front door was absolutely gorgeous.
the next morning we woke up at the crack of dawn and drove through the mountain into jackson hole. we stopped for some coffee & tea at the cutest bakery, persephone bakery, and started our journey into grand teton national park. we drove up through the tetons and straight into the south yellowstone entrance. I’ll let the video do the rest of the talking. enjoy!
