Hi, I'm Tricia...

 

I don’t know if you have ever found yourself overwhelmed by the state of the world, but I certainly have. I have often felt like I can’t keep my house on track, let alone handle saving the planet like I want. I used to feel like if I couldn’t do it perfectly, maybe I shouldn’t even bother.

I wanted to make an impact, but I didn’t know where to begin. I felt overwhelmed by what seemed like the high financial costs and emotional energy I thought it would take to make the changes we needed to achieve balance in our home. Between trying to manage my four kids and our lives, “sustainability” just didn’t seem sustainable.

Why did I feel this way? Well, as researcher by nature, I often bite off more that I can chew. One time I thought “We need to start composting!” So, I built a composting bin, got the containers for inside, got a tub for our garage so that I could start worm composting, and even started plotting out a garden. By the time I had all the tools and knowledge I was exhausted! And all I had to show for it was half-tilled garden and a bunch of dead worms.

I have learned a lot since those years of failed projects. Sometimes the “sustainable” part in sustainability means doing the “less-than-perfect” thing. Progress, not perfection.  It is not about the big changes, but about the small steps we can take right now. I still think it is important to reduce our garbage and food waste, but now instead of worms, we have a compost service that takes our kitchen/yard scraps weekly. Easy-peasy! 


One small choice that made a lasting impact on every member of our family was when we moved to using essential oils and all natural household products in 2015. This one small decision has had a huge impact on not only our household but on our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. I have found a purpose and a passion through these little bottles of plant goodness. 


Over the years we have made lots of changes in our household to reduce our environmental impact. I have come to know that eco-friendly and sustainable living does not have to cost a lot or take up a big portion of our already busy schedules. I have found many amazing products, diy recipes & projects, and time-saving tips & tricks that I can’t wait to share with you!

End of Summer Harmony

End of Summer Harmony
“Mom, where’s my homework?”
“Dad, where are my cleats?”
“Honey, have you seen my briefcase?”
“Did you pack my lunch?”
“What’s for dinner?”

Can you relate to any of this???  Coming off a relaxing summer, September brings with it new schedules, seasonal changes, appointments, meetings and sports practices… and at times…  less harmony. This blend can help bring it all back!  
It promotes physical and emotional health by creating a harmonic balance for the energy centers. 
I like to use it on my upper abdomen/diaphragm (Solar Plexus) if I know I may be in a stressful situation, or a large crowd of people. 

  • Diffuse it in the morning to create positive attitudes.
  • Apply a drop to your wrist or back of your neck to feel more balanced.
  • Diffuse it in the office or after school to help keep the peace!

The Refinery Oils Newsletter | March 2019

Happy March,

What if improving your health was as simple as use this, not that? Or as simple as grabbing a (better) product and using it every day? Over the years, our family has switched out our shampoos, soaps, deodorants, etc, as well as gotten rid of (most) plastics and paper products with fabric napkins and glass storage containers. But I think the biggest impacts have been  diffusing essential oils instead of candles/air fresheners and switching over our cleaning products to Thieves Household Cleaner- hands down the most versatile and economical cleaning product out there! I have significantly less migraines and I can honestly say that this simple change has had an incredible impact on my family's health.
 
I want to give you some great tips on how you can not only go green, recycle and reuse but also how to support your health while doing so. It’s super simple!
