The Madness Behind My Pursuit To Rid Toxic Junk From My Life

The madness behind my pursuit to rid toxic junk from my life and why you should join me. Read all about over at www.theonyxfeather.com

I’m so excited to share with you my love affair with essential oils. I say affair because, let me tell you, these amazing oils are part of my everyday everything. No kidding!

My Oil Journey

May 2014. At first, I just went with the flow and used the oils primarily for diffusing so that my house would smell so refreshing and boy did it smell good. One weekend I had time to piddle around with the oils so I pull out some bowls and spoons rounded up a spray bottle, dug in the drawer for some roller bottles I previously bought for who knows what and got busy making a bug spray, a roll on for pains, and a roll on for cuts. 

So now I’m armed and not so dangerous with my small teeny collection of oil remedies. The next weekend I packed up my new BF (my diffuser) and grabbed my oils and bikini and headed to the lake to meet up with my for reals BFF.

This IS What Happen When I Got To The Lake

I start unpacking my super cool oil collection and my BF is watching me with the ever so curious eyes as I fill the diffuser and start it up, unpack my bug spray, and lay out my oils. I proceed to start spraying everyone with my super cool and wonderful smelling bug spray and we head out to the deck. The entire time we are out there not one single bug came near us. How cool is that. And no chemicals…..even cooler.

My Love Affair With Oils Started And I'm Not One Bit Mad About It

I couldn’t wait to make other oil recipes. And that’s exactly what I did. I now make my own face wash, face serum, face lotion, body lotion, household cleaner, fabric softener, hand soap, bug spray, lotion for poison ivy, sleepy time lotion and many other remedies. My next recipes I made was a Sea Salt spray for my hair and sunscreen. This new way of living is pretty dang exciting. I now know every single ingredient in my stuff.....all of my stuff. Stuff that I'm applying to my skin, the largest cell surface on our body that absorbs all the things and sends it straight into our system.

Basically, since May 2014 I have not taken a single Ibuprofen or Advil, used OTC deodorant, toothpaste, face products, sunscreen, allergy meds, or household cleaning products. I am so happy that I have been able to reduce the amount of chemicals that I put in/on my body and in the air. How awesome is this. Naturally made by the earth and offers so much more to our beautiful lives than any bottle of pepto bismol will ever offer.

No More Candles In My House

Did I mention I no longer use candles or other types of smell goods for the house…..just my diffuser. I also have not called in to work sick like many of my co-workers. When I feel something going on (like I might be getting sick) I go to my oils and BAM they do their magic. Not even joking. I DO NOT have a primary care physician.

So where do I get my oils? Not at the grocery store. Not at the health food store. Nope. I get my Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils from Young Living. YL oils are pure no synthetic additives added. YL harvests all of their oils and they do this all over the world. Really a fascinating company.

How To Start Your Oil Journey

I started my oil journey out with a essential oil starter kit. The kit includes a diffuser (which I run every single day) and a variety of oils to begin with.

If you have any questions about oils feel free to contact me. I would love to help you get started on a healthier journey.

I could go on for hours if not days about these lovely little oils and all the people I have helped by introducing them to the oils but you probably want to get started on your own oil journey so that you can also share with your loved ones.


If you're ready to join me on the oil journey you can sign up here. I can walk you through sign up or we can meet up if you're in the Tulsa area. Let me know how I can help.

I almost forgot.....this bracelet is an essential oil diffuser bracelet. Add two drops of your favorite oil to palm of hands and roll bracelet in between your hands and now you have an oil diffuser to wear. How awesome is that. 

Seriously though, these oils have changed my life in so many ways. I haven't felt healthier than I do right now. I love that I can simply refer to my essential oil guide book and learn ways to take care of ailments without resorting to using toxic drugs.

Seasonal Changes Change Your Skin

Your skin changes with the seasonal changes. Head over to www.meetwithtisa.com to learn how to get softer skin with all natural ingredients.

When the seasons change so does the moisture levels in your skin.

Is your skin looking all dull and chalky? You know when you can scratch your name on your skin. That kinda of dry is when you need to give some extra attention to your skin.

Are You Drinking Enough Water?

First make sure you are drinking half of your body weight in ounces of water daily. Increase your intake if you're not getting enough of this VERY beneficial nutrient. If you are you make me so proud!

Then get down to some skin pampering. Don't goop up on a ton of lotions and body creams. Especially the kind loaded with synthetic ingredients. This will only further dry your skin and increase your exposure to toxins. Yikes!

The Natural Approach

By now you've figured out I really love the all natural approach to just about everything I do. This includes pampering my skin. I'm sharing some recipes for sugar scrubs that will slough off the dry skin and heavily moisturize your body.....leaving it oh so soft.

3 Types Of Sugars

Let's talk about the different sugars you'll be using to make your scrubs.

  • White sugar on your face. White sugar has finer granules and will not over scrub your delicate facial, neck, and chest skin.
  • Brown sugar on your body. Brown sugar has a little larger granule and works great on arms, legs, and trunk area.
  • Raw sugar on your feet and hands. Raw sugar has a larger granule and works great on softening those nasty callouses on your feet and hands.

Now you have the dirty on sugars. You will also need:

  • Olive oil
  • Unrefined Coconut oil
  • Vitamin E oil
  • Honey
  • Lavender essential oil
  • Peppermint essential oil
  • Lemon essential oil

I use glass jars to store my scrubs in. Mason jars work well. I keep my jars in the shower, it keeps the scrubs moist making it easier to scoop out and use.


Lavender Face Scrub

  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vitamin E oil
  • 10 drop of Lavender essential oil

Combine ingredients in bowl. Mix well. Store in sealed glass container. Gently massage into your clean wet skin, be careful around your eyes. Rinse with water, pat dry.


Peppermint Brown Sugar Body Scrub

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vitamin E oil
  • 10 drops of Peppermint essential oil

Combine ingredients in bowl. Mix well. Store in sealed glass container. Apply to wet skin, massage then rinse with water.


Lemon Sugar Hand and Foot Scrub

  • 1 cup of raw sugar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 15 drops of Lemon essential oil

Combine ingredients in bowl. Mix well. Store in sealed glass container. Massage the scrub on your feet or hands. Rinse with water. After drying for extra moisturizing you can apply lotion and put on socks/gloves.


Ohhhh, So Soft

When the seasons change I pamper my skin 3-4 times a week. Who doesn't LOVE soft skin. Right?

Not one single toxin added in these recipes. Score! If your dog....which mine has.....licks some off the floor they will not get sick. 

Now off to get your supplies and start pampering your skin tonight.

xoxo, Tisa

Simple Changes For Your Health

Everyone's always asking me.....How come you never get sick? What do you use on your skin? Well ladies and dudes........got some amazing info for ya'll. I know....STOP...with all this amazingness. But really. It is quit amazing.

Time to start taking your health seriously. Start today. Head over to www.meetwithtisa.com to get the low down on what you can do to start making changes in your health.

For the last 15-20 years years I have really focused on my health. How can I improve it? How can I improve it with a natural approach?

I've tried a shit ton of remedies and concoctions. No jokes! Try asking your 8 year old to drink Apple Cider Vinegar, honey and lemon mixed in warm water when she doesn't feel well. No way did that happen back in the beginning of my "Get Healthier Quest".......

Making changes in your health is easier than you think. Head over to www.meetwithtisa.com to get the scoop.

After years of presenting one after another natural remedies to my daughter she now comes up with her own. If fact....it was her idea for me to hook up on the oil train.

If you don't know what that is or haven't climbed aboard yet.... I not only have the ticket for you to get on I also have some incredible information to share. I can't keep it a secret anymore. And I can care less if anyone thinks I'm a bit crazy. Those that know me know I am totally into natural healing and that I always want to share what has worked for me.

I Share......But Are They Listening?

I share all the time even when I know it will fall on deaf ears. They humor me and say thanks I may try that. Riiiight! Sometimes they do and most time they do not.

Are you listening to your body? You should be. Head over to www.meetwithtisa.com to get tips on giving toxins the boot.

Funny though how it usually ends up with them coming back to me when they don't get better to get that information again that can help with . blah di blah blah........ I'm cool about it and give them the information again. Alls I want is them to get to feeling better and be healthy.

It's Really Not That Complicated

Back to the oils....you can go to the Essential Oil category and find my story of how I got started and how you can too.

Therapeutic Essential Oils have been used....well like forever for healing and support of the body as a whole.. They are not new to us. They are not full of toxic chemicals. They work with you bodies faster and with no side effects.  It's really not that complicated. They are the bomb diggidy. For reals.

Want to make changes in your health and life? Head over to www.meetwithtisa.com to find out how.

No More OTC Meds

I have not used any over the counter meds since I have started 100% using my oils for all health concerns. Notice.....I said therapeutic essential oils. These oils are pure and not laden with chemicals or diluted. Most essential oils you find in the store ARE NOT 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils. Those oils are generally aromatherapy oils and have other ingredients included. With that said......Theyresults I've gotten have been with 100% therapeutic oils from Young Living and that's what I feel safe with.

Before I started using these oils I did purchase the other oils. In fact, I still had some of the other oils. So I compared the lavenders oils. Whoa! Huge difference with smell and consistency. A little goes a long way with the oils I use....... due to their purity. Bonus.

No More Candles, Scentsy or Plug ins

No more candles being burned in my house. Sorry candle makers. I also gave the plug ins and my scentsy the boot. I use the oils in the diffuser (that came in my starter kit) and ahhh the fragrance and the health benefits I get are priceless. Not mention no more soot from the wicks or chance of fires. Yikes.

No More Toothpaste or Deodorant

WHAT??? Wait a minute I do use toothpaste....don't have a heart attack Dr. Harper.... and deodorant. Okay. Just not OTC products. In fact, this may sound a little crazy but the toothpaste I use also doubles as my deodorant. Crazy. Right? I thought so too. Took me a while to try it for deodorant but when I did I was surprised how well it works. I haven't used OTC deodorant in almost 2 years.

Why I decided to stop using OTC deodorant is due to multiple breast cancer scares. Remember I have been working on getting healthier for a while. Some things didn't even cross my mind as NOT healthy. Deodorant was one. I kept hearing doctors telling their breast cancer patients to STOP using OTC deodorant and start using natural products instead. I was like...What? Why? So I did some research and freaked out a little about the ingredients in OTC deodorant. It took years trying so many natural deodorants to finally find one that works. So basically I just saved you lots of frustration. Buy Thieves toothpaste and yes it has some essential oils in it.

No More OTC Beauty Products

Wow. Did this save me some dollars and a lot of them. Score! NO more OTC.......sunscreen, face wash, face serum, face moisturizer, acne treatment, body lotion, perfume....... No kidding. I did a total product dump right in the trash and switched to oils only.  You can find the recipes I use in the Essential Oil category or below. Check them out and get started on decreasing the toxins you are putting on your skin.

Time To Make Oils Part Of Your Life

Crazy. Right? I had no idea how much these oils would change my life. I'll keep you posted on how to use oils in your life and my favorite oils and how I use them. I know you want to improve your health. I know you want to improve the environment for you and your family. I know you are ready to make these changes. You will not be disappointed making oils part of your daily regimen.

Of course the oils are only one part of my lifestyle change but I would definitely say its a huge part. I also have reduced almost all processed foods. I exercises. I meditate. I DO NOT drink pop. I try my damnedest to get 8 hours of sleep. I laugh often. .......and I don't tolerate a lot of BS in my life.

If you have questions or want to find out more about the oils shoot me an email. I would love to talk to you about them. If you want to get on this oil train with me you will find the link to sign up as a wholesale member in the Essential Oil category or below.

Check out some of my favorite recipes. Also, keep an eye on my Library....... coming soon, body specific exercises. Remember to set your intentions for the day and laugh every chance you get.

Be amazing. Be healthy.
