My Oily Madness
Hey! I’m Diana with My Oily Madness.
My Oily Madness is my facebook group and my little piece of the internet where I share about natural ways to support overall wellness for the mind, body and soul.
Life is hectic, No one is perfect, and there is always something needing to get done. I am literally organized chaos and need all the natural support that I can get. My kids and I have allergies and other things keeping us from using a lot of store bought products. I have done years of research on all kinds of different things, Recently focusing on the ingredients that company’s put into their products. After learning about all the different kinds of chemical ingredients out there, I’ve discovered that there are many things that can have a negative affect on our body, So I became a Healthy Living Enthusiast. Meaning, I try to eat healthy,practice yoga and use all natural, chemical free products in my home. Which Young Living makes super easy to do with the amazing variety of products they have!
I’m super passionate about using my research to educate others on how to use all natural solutions to live a healthier and more balanced lifestyle, even if you have allergies or sensitivities or are just plain busy and always on the go.
I’m a mom of 3, I’m the girlfriend of an amazing supportive guy, I’m an Independent Distributor with Young Living Essential Oils, I have a small Diffuser Jewelry and Oily accessories business which is also called My Oily Madness, I’m the owner of a karaoke DJ-ing business, a part-time Bartender, a DIY-er, An Essential Oil, Chakra, and Crystal Educator, A Yoga Instructor -In-training- and I enjoy reading and learning about all kinds of different things. I believe that everything is energy and what we send out into the universe comes back to us. We get good vibes and bad vibes and should always listen to our intuition. The good vibes that we get are there to make us happy, but we need to pay attention to the bad vibes too because they could be trying to tell us something important. I’m a coffee lover and I’m into all things to do with Young Living Essential Oils, Crystals, Chakra Balancing, Reiki, Yoga, Astrology, Tarot Cards, Palm Reading, Gardening, DIY-ing, Allergy Free Baking, Metaphysical Studies, Feng Shui, and so much more.
Young Living has really enhanced my household and I have the peace of mind knowing that I have an arsenal of all natural products on hand for when I need them. Young Living has such a huge variety of different things and a product line for almost everything that I have been able to ditch all the chemical filled stuff and switch over to using all natural plant based ones in every area of my house and for my personal care as well. I’m so glad that I was introduced to this company because their products have been extremely beneficial for the overall wellness of myself,as well as my family!
I’m here to team up with, support or advise anyone that is interested in using all natural solutions for support in raising their vibrational frequency, becoming more balanced, grounded, to help feel less stressed and for those who want to learn more about the different ways to use what the earth has given us to support our health and overall wellbeing on this amazing adventure called life.

Crystals, Essential Oils, Yoga and Chakras!!
Crystals are the earths DNA, they have millions of years of the earths history within them. They where created as the earth formed through the action of Water, Wind and Volcanic fire. A crystal is a solid body with a geometrically regular shape. It’s constituents which are atoms, molecules and ions are arranged internally in a pattern like microscopic structure, which forms a crystal lattice that extends in all directions inside the crystal. They are a chemical imprint for evolution and they have continued to metamorphose over time as the planet has changed. Crystals were formed in many different ways, Some were exposed to extreme pressure, others grew in chambers underground, some were laid down in layers and others were dripped into existance. Many grow from water that is rich in dissolved minerals, others grow from melted rock and even vapor. However, whatever form they take their structure can absorb, conserve, focus and emit energy. A crystal is defined and classified by its internal structure, with it’s own specific set of properties unique to it’s species. Every crystal has an orderly, internal pattern of atoms with a distinctive way of locking new atoms into that pattern to repeat it again and again. As crystals grow, differences in the temperature and chemical composition cause amazing variations. The internal arrangement of atoms determines all the minerals’ chemical and physical properties, including color. Light interacts with different atoms to create different colors. Many minerals are colorless in their pure state however impurities of the atomic structure cause color. For example, Quartz crystal is normally colorless but it can occur in a range of colors from pink to brown to deep purple, all depending on the number and type of impurities in its structure. The outer form of a crystal can vary but the internal structure is constant and unchanging. At the heart of a crystal is the atom and its component parts. An atom is dynamic, consisting of particles rotating around a center in constant motion. A crystal may appear serene on the outside but it is actually a seething molecular mass vibrating at a certain frequency. This is what gives a crystal its energy.
On the quantum physics level we know everything is made up of atoms. Which is made up of energy. Everything in nature has its own vibrational frequency, including us. A crystals vibrational frequency is measured by megahertz. They are measured by their matter, size, thickness and their color (light frequency). Something that always interested me was how they use a quartz crystal to keep time in a watch. Quartz crystals maintain a precise frequency which helps to regulate the movement of a watch making it extremely accurate. Inside a quartz watch the battery sends electricity to the quartz crystal through an electronic circuit. The quartz crystal oscillates – vibrates back and forth- at a precise frequency keeping the time accurate. Interesting right!
Ancient civilizations have worked with the energy of the earth since the beginning of time. Using all things in mother nature including crystals and essential oils. This knowledge has been passed down through different cultures and has been proven scientifically. We know we can use different elements in nature to align and support our own vibrational energies. Our bodies health depends on how high our frequency is and natural stones and essential oils have high vibrational frequencies.
Essential Oils are derived from plants and come from nature. They are the smallest molecules on plants and are located on every part of them. They act as the plants natural defense mechanism. Essential Oils can penetrate the skin immediately and pass right through the cell membrane making them very powerful and beneficial on a physical basis. Their essence is also extremely beneficial for emotional and spiritual support. This is why aromatherapy is so important. Essential Oils and crystals have been found in many healing practices in ancient cultures. Each plant has it’s own energetic resonance allowing each one to support both the subtle energy body and the physical body at the same time. Essential Oils bypass the thought process and vibrates with us on a more primal level. They can help us shift from being in a place where emotions are overwhelming- to a place where we feel more able to take a breath and ease into our next steps. They go much deeper than just smelling good, they access our energy body and physical body connecting them together in synergy and creating a healing support on various levels. Crystals have similiar properties and can aid in these processes as well. Crystals can energetically magnify and focus the attention needed to draw out or redirect energy while supporting the body in rebalancing and healing.
When using crystals and essential oils together in a synergy they can amplify each other and work together to support a specific area in need. Decide what you are in need of, Research which essential oil will support that need and then research which crystal has the same supportive properties as the essential oil that you are looking for and then pair the two together!!
However, For these healing properties to take affect you need to be open to their energy. Our thoughts and emotions play a very important role on our vibrational frequency. Positive thoughts, love and joy are high vibration emotions. Stress, fear and despair are negative emotions and will just bring us down. We all have the power within ourselves to heal emotionally and physically while using mother nature and all the elements surrounding us for support.
Another beneficial practice to overall wellness is to practice yoga. Through physical exercises and breath we connect the mind with the body. Yoga is a great tool that becomes a way of life and helps in self-transformation on various levels, physical, mental and spiritual. Each asana pose has a meditative purpose to supporting a healthy body and mind set. There are different yoga styles that can also help to open and balance the chakras. For example, Kundalini yoga uses specific physical poses, chanting, breathing techniques and meditation to try and awaken the kundalini energy that moves through our chakras. Yoga can help to bring vital life force into the chakras creating awareness and opening them up.
Chakras are vibrating, energy vortexes that exist inside of us. They transport energy from the universe around us into our aura and body.
There are 7 major chakras and each one is associated with a specific area of the body and with an emotional state. The Root charka, The Sacral chakra, The Solar Plexus chakra, The Heart chakra, The Throat chakra, The Third Eye chakra and The Crown chakra. They can become blocked and unbalanced causing many different physical and emotional issues. To heal and bring your chakras back into balance you can use crystals and essential oils. Just choose the essential oils and crystals that specifically go with each chakra and intention. Choose a comfortable place to lie down. Usung a Roller bottle with the appropriate essential oil roll onto each chakra point. Then place the chosen crystals on each chakra, clear your mind and allow yourself to meditate. The stones will amplify what you are focusing on, let your intuition guide your actions.
You can also use Crystals and Essential Oils by putting crystals in roller bottles, infuse them with similiar property essential oils and a carrier oil and apply topically, you can wear crystals as jewelry along with leather or lava beads to hold the essential oils as well or you can simply carry a crystal in your pocket and use a diffuser or just bring along a bottle of essential oil to inhale as needed. Carrying a crystal with you keeps it’s energetic frequency resonating with you throughout the day.
You can place and position crystals throughout your home to enhance your enviroment and energy of your surroundings. Different crystals have different properties ranging from boosting your energy, providing protection, guiding your dreams, space clearing, attracting prosperity, enhancing intuition, increasing mental abilities, boosting confidence, support in healing, attracting abundance or love. They work throught resonance and vibration. Some even contain therapeutic properties like copper or lithium. However, you want to make sure you cleanse new crystals to remove the impressions of those who have minded, handled, and sold them. If a crystal appears dull or heavy it may need to be restored. Crystals need to be cleansed, charged and programmed.
To get the most out of your crystals it is important to cleanse and charge them regularly. Crystals are highly receptive and pick up negative energy easily. This energy comes from the world around them, through use and healing; and via other people, either through touch or from simply being in the same vicinity, like someone with bad/low vibes.
Luckily, there are a number of really simple ways you can easily cleanse and/or charge your crystals, including your crystal rollers!
Running or salt water. Holding the stone under running water is an easy and effective way of cleansing your stone. As you do so, put intention in the stone by asking the universe to remove all negativity and fill it with positive, loving, and healing vibrations. You can also immerse your stones in salt water if you prefer. However, all porous crystals should avoid water!!
Under moonlight. This is my personal favorite. I like to put my crystals outside on a clear night under the light of the new moon, or the full moon is just as good. If it’s raining (or likely to rain) you can put then on a window sill.
Under sunlight. Like moonlight, sunlight can be used to cleanse and charge your crystals. Just be aware that too much sun can be particularly bad for some crystals.
You can also cleanse them by leaving them out for 24 hours to bathe in the sun and then the moonlight.
Smudging with sage. While smudging your stones, it’s important to put intention in them. Asking for protection or dedicating love to them.
Using other crystals. Stones like Carnelian and Clear Quartz cleanse other stones. All you have to do is put them on your stones Or place smaller crystals on top of a cluster or geode of Clear Quartz, Amethyst or piece of Selenite for a day or two.
Visualisation. Hold your crystal and visualise it surrounded by white light.
Whether cleansing or charging your crystal, t
Some methods are the same. For example, you might use the moonlight to cleanse but you might also use it to charge your stones as well. You might cleanse then in running water, and then charge them with moonlight. It comes down to your natural instinct, and your intent.
Some of the crystals that should avoid direct sunlight include; Amethyst, Ametrine, Apophyllite Green, Aquamarine, Celestite, Citrine, Fluorite, Opal, Rose Quartz, Smokey Quartz, Spirit Quartz, Topaz, Turquoise.
Some of the crystals that should avoid water include; Halite, Malachite, Selenite, Pyrite Matrix (in particular the talc) and Pyrite Suns. As well as all porous crystals.
Programing a crystal is important as well. You can do this by dedicating a purpose to it. Set an intention of what you need the crystal to help you work on. Always choose the crystals you are drawn to, your energy is drawn to it’s energy. Making it the perfrect one for you.
There are many books and resources out there to be able to dive deeper into each one of these practices. They are all extremely interesting and amazing. I love learning everything there is to know about it all and I learn something new everytime I research. It is definitly worth taking the time to learn all about each of them individually and then incorporate and use them together in your daily life for a more connected, healthy way of living.
