Meet Sherri Sharpe Herzberg

Hi, friend!  So happy to "meet" you here!  A little about me...

My name is Sherri and along with my husband Andrew and our two kiddos- Casey and Anna- I currently live in Pensacola, Florida.  We are a military family- both my husband and I are retried Army Helicopter Pilots. We were both officially retired in 2021 and our last assignment brought us to Florida and for the foreseeable future, we will call this home!  After 20+ years of moving around every 12-36 months, its both amazing and terrifying to be putting down some roots.  Fun Peek at the Future: we have a 35' RV and we are planning to take this show on the road in a few years though.  So, stay tuned!

I got started with Essential Oils in 2014 just after our son was born and a few days after my husband deployed to Afghanistan.  I was still on Active Duty with the Army myself and trying to navigate my new role as a mom while working full time and it was...brutal.  My friend Shannon (an Army Labor & Delivery Nurse) was doing the same...with triplets!  She shared about getting allllll the sleep, boosting her milk supply and keeping the family's immune system in tip-top shape using essential oils and I immediately jumped in.  

I knew nothing about essential oils or the various brands out there.  I knew nothing about the toxins lurking inside our bath, kitchen and laundry cabinets.  I just knew I needed more sleep and stress support STAT!  

Thankfully, I had stumbled into Young Living and a team full of nature + science minded mamas dedicated to educating, empowering and supporting others on their wellness journeys.  I learned about the YL Seed to Seal promise...I got to visit 3 of their farms to see it in action for myself...and I was so grateful that I landed in the very best the industry has to offer.  

At first, I was just interested in diffusing and replacing candles.  But, slowly I started the process of ditching and switching out toiletries, supplements, cleaning products, baby and beauty products.  I was worried this would be an expensive change for my family but...the versatility of the oils and products blew me away and when you can use one thing to replace four or five...the savings adds up quickly! And the peace of mind that I'm using healthier, cleaner and more natural products on and around my family...priceless.

As my excitement grew, so did my business and here we something completely unexpected.  

Favorite products: Stress Away (everything its name implies and more), Gentle Baby (skin, relaxation, tantrum tamer), Ningxia Red (antioxidant goodness at the core of my family's secret to staying above the wellness line), Thieves Household Cleaner (truly an all purpose, green cleaning powerhouse) and Manuka (along with saline rinses & lymphatic massage, this oil replaced my 10 year allergy med habit and annual sinus infection antibiotics).  For real...Manuka BLEW MY MIND. 

Fast fun facts about me:
1. I'm from Martinsville, VA...where are my Nascar short track fans at?
2. I'm an ESFJ, 6w7, 4/6 Manifesting Generator (any personality type geeks out there?)
3. Tacos and Margaritas are LIFE. Fight me.
4. Everything in life is an excuse to eat cake...coconut, chocolate or lemon especially.
5. Late blooming mama- I was considered "elderly" on the maternity ward at 36 and 38 when my kiddos were born!
6. My favorite colors are blue & green which works well in a beach town.
7. I hate sand.  Yep...I live at the beach. some, lose some.  

Okay, now hit that contact me button and tell me about YOU!  What brought you here?

Easy Back to School Routines

As parents, we make decisions every day to ensure our family's well-being. But how do we know we are making the best decisions?  Do you ask yourself this question as often as I do?!

You can keep researching until you find the answer you need, or you can take advice from someone you already know and trust.  This is exactly what I did...researched ways to make our back-to-school season easier and asked every experience mom I know for advice.  I compiled everything I learned regarding our routine that will help you.  Ready? Let’s start with our morning…

Morning Routine-
Now that your children are rested (and we’ll talk about how to make that happen later), you can get the morning off to the best start with nutrition and complete body support.

Start them off with a nutritious breakfast.  Make sure your breakfast includes a complex carbohydrate and protein to keep those bellies full longer! 

Add in a Pre/Probiotic.  Kidscents MightyPro - Pre/Probiotics that taste like candy and do their job in supporting a healthy gut.  This step is actually better to do at night, but if you are prone to forget this step at bedtime, add it to your morning routine! Gut health is important for healthy emotions and the ability to absorb nutrients.

Give them their vitamins! Are you worried that your kids aren’t eating enough veggies? We have you covered. Young Living vitamins are formulated without the dyes and synthetic ingredients found in your typical kid's vitamin. 

Kidscents MightyVites chewables - MightyVites benefit from Orgen-kids®, a nutrient-dense, food-based superfruit, plant, and vegetable complex. Free of preservatives and artificial colors and flavors, these delicious, berry-flavored chewables give your children full nutritional support.

MightyZyme chewables contain enzymes that naturally occur in the body to support and assist the digestive needs of growing bodies and the normal digestion of foods.

NingXia Red is packed with superfoods to support overall wellness. This antioxidant-packed drink supports energy levels, normal cellular function, and whole-body and normal eye health. A daily shot of 2–4 ounces helps support overall wellness with powerful antioxidants.  I always have a stash of frozen individual packs so they can grab one on the way out the door.  They love starting their day with a “slushie”.

 Happy Head-
I don’t know about you, but we like to keep our heads nice and happy in this house. This is the perfect head spray to use every single morning as you brush your child's hair ESPECIALLY if you get that dreaded lice note home from school!

Happy Head Spray Recipe
  • 2 oz. spray bottle.
  • 10 drops Tea Tree oil.
  • 5 drops Lavender oil.
  • 5 drops Rosemary oil.
  • 5 drops Eucalyptus oil.
Fill a 2oz spray bottle halfway with water (it's best to use distilled or bottled water) and add the essential oils. Shake well before each use. Focus the spray towards the scalp around the ear area.

Topical and Aromatic Wellness-

Back in the day, we did things differently.
Parents would wait until they had to keep their kiddo home from school and then they would go to town, dousing him/her in these magic plant juices.
NOW, we all know better. If you use these oils every single day instead of waiting for a problem to develop, the oils can help you maintain your and your child's health.

Nothing is foolproof, but if you find yourself or your kiddos needing to stay home, double the frequency with which you use your essential oils and Thieves Cough drops, the most effective cough drops I have tried. They also taste great!

Your kids will be back at it in no time. 

  • Frankincense
  • Peppermint
  • Thieves
  • Lemon
  • Oregano
  • Bergamot
  • Eucalyptus 
Pick a few favorites and diffuse a few drops of each before and after school.

Make a wellness Roll-on by adding 5 drops of three or four oils listed above to a 10 ml bottle then fill it up with a carrier oil.

Stay Calm-

Now that your kids have the best nutrition in their bellies and are armed with their wellness roll-on, it’s time to support their emotions during and after school.

School can be a rough time for everyone. It is filled with excitement and anxiety. The best way to combat stress quickly is to use essential oils. Remember that when you inhale essential oils, the tiny molecules go deep into the brain, straight to the places that help you manage your emotions.
One of my favorite mom tricks is to apply your child's favorite calming oil to a diffuser bracelet. The lava rocks absorb the oil so your kids can smell it throughout the day. Apply 1-2 drops just before school.

If you are new to oils and aren’t sure which ones to try first, here are a few favorites that are very effective in calming nerves. 
- Lavender
- Stress Away
- Frankincense
- Valor gives a boost of confidence.
- Peace & Calming is relaxing and calming.
- Vetiver is calming.
- The Feelings Kit is a kit of six oils specifically for emotions. (Harmony™, 5 ml, Forgiveness™, 5 ml, Inner Child™, 5 ml, Present Time™, 5 ml, Release™, 5ml, Valor ™, 5 ml)

Focus for the win!

Whether it’s during school or after, kids are always learning new concepts and need to be able to focus on tasks. 

Teach your kids how to use the Focus Roll-On recipe featured in the graphic. Instruct them to roll on their neck and wrists and to inhale when they need help focusing.
If your school does not allow your child to keep essential oils roll-ons in their backpack or at their desk, you can try two alternatives. 

1) Have the school nurse hold on to the roll-on. Your children can go see her when they need to apply the Focus Roll-On. 
2) Apply one drop of each oil to their diffuser bracelet before they leave for school. Instruct them to smell the bracelet before important focus times like after recess and lunch, and before tests.

  • Lavender - Inhaling Lavender essential oil during recess can increase concentration when back to the classroom.
  • Lemon
  • Peppermint
  • Thieves
  • Cedarwood
  • Vetiver
  • Rosemary
  • Brain Power
  • Gathering 
1) Play around with different oils to see which may be more effective. Every child can respond differently. 
2) Use these oils along with the “stay calm” blend for extra effect.
3) Diffuse or apply Lemon to your child’s diffuser bracelet during study time. Apply Lemon again before tests.

I have heard that smelling Lemon oil during a test will help them recall information they retained the last time they smelled Lemon while studying.


When school starts, a lot of kids do sports. Strains and sprains can be a common occurrence during sports season. 

Most parents' go-to solutions are common OTC medications like Ibuprofen; however, medications like this can have long-term damaging effects on your child's body.  

Instead, try the safe and effective OTC by Young Living called Cool Azul Pain Cream. It provides cooling relief from minor muscle and joint aches, arthritis, strains, bruises, and sprains. A little goes a long way. Apply as often as needed. 

Also great for growing pains! 

Long practices, games, and tournaments can call for some much-needed muscle relief. 
Dilute 1-2 drops of PanAway* and Copaiba to the area of discomfort. For larger surfaces, use more essential oil and carrier oil. 

Other favorites are:
- Cool Azul Sports Gel
- Ortho Ease Massage Oil
- Ortho Sport Massage Oil

Bedtime Routine-
Nothing says “get ready for school” like a good night’s rest.

Routines are important for kids because they provide quality time before bed. When you have a routine, kids are less likely to resist bedtime, and they are more likely to fall asleep fast and stay asleep through the night.

Try these four steps in your Night Time Routine--
Step 1
Start with a bath. Baths can be a great way to calm your kids down before bedtime. 
Use the KidScents Shampoo and KidScents Bath Gel. They are free of harmful chemicals.
Step 2
Before putting on pajamas, lotion them up with KidScents lotion. Add a drop of Lavender and apply to feet. YL lotion is formulated with no mineral oils, no synthetic perfumes, no artificial coloring, and no toxic ingredients. Adding Lavender will make sleep even more restful. 
Step 3
Brush their teeth with the KidScents Slique Toothpaste. Some popular kinds of toothpaste still contain triclosan, a harmful chemical the FDA banned from antibacterial hand soap. The Young Living KidScents product does not contain any triclosan or Flouride. It is formulated with all safe and effective ingredients. 
Step 4
Put 4-6 drops of SleepyIze and or Lavender in the diffuser and turn out the lights.
Essential oils effectively calm your children and help them get a restful night's sleep. 

That’s it!  You just heard the basics of our daily routine during the school year! Shoot me any questions you have.  You know I’m happy to help!  

Here’s your easy button for ordering.  I added every single item mentioned in this post to a wishlist!

Grill Marinades
Store-bought marinades have a shelf life, which means the ingredients lose freshness every day they sit there, and at the same time, the flavors lose their intensity.
The secret to mastering marinades is in knowing the effect of various marinating durations.
Marinating for two hours or less will impart a surface flavor.
For a fully infused flavor, marinade for 8-24 hours.
NOTE: The thicker the meat, the longer it takes to absorb the flavor. 
Here are a couple of my favorite marinade recipes. They’re full of flavor AND free of any preservatives and include the following oils:

Lemon Vitality & Lime Vitality supports your digestive, immune, and respiratory systems.                     
Coriander Vitality supports your digestive and hormonal systems.   
Black Pepper Vitality supports your digestive and nervous systems.

Is anybody here a taco fan? Check out this killer Chicken Marinade!
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1⁄3 cup olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 drops Black Pepper Vitality Essential Oil
  • *2 drops Lime Vitality Essential Oil
Mix the above ingredients together. Allow chicken to marinate for 2-6 hours.
*Avoid plastic when using citrus essential oils.   

Here's a delicious shrimp marinade that is perfect for those shrimp kabobs!

Shrimp Marinade 
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped

Citrus Coconut Popsicles are the perfect way to cool down on those HOT summer nights!

Insert popsicle sticks. Continue freezing until firm.                      

Next up, some simple recipes to ensure you enjoy your Summer Fun! 

Outdoor Spray
Hot summer evenings outside are best enjoyed annoyance-free. Check out this awesome-smelling outside spray that will keep your evenings much more enjoyable. 

  • 2 oz Witch Hazel
  • 2 oz distilled water
  • 20 drops Thieves Essential Oil
  • 20 drops Lemon Essential Oil
  • 20 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
  • 20 drops Citronella Essential Oil 
Mix together in a 4oz spray bottle.
Keep away from the face when you apply.

BONUS: This can also be a great diffuser blend for the back patio or camper! Use two drops of each oil with water in your diffuser. 

Soothing Stick
If you forget to apply your outdoor spray, don’t worry. I have your back. This is perfect for kids!

DIY Soothing Stick
  • 5 drops Lavender Essential Oil
  • 5 drops *Purification Essential Oil
  • 3 drops *Peppermint Essential Oil 
*Leave the Peppermint and Purification out of this recipe if using on children 2 years old or younger.
Combine these magical essential oils in a 10 ml roller and fill the rest with V6 complex oil or your favorite carrier oil. Apply this soothing stick roll-on to any areas you need and as often as you need it.

Floating Citronella Candle
Spruce up your summer social with this beautiful DIY citronella candle. It is not only EASY, but it will change the look of any table, AND it actually WORKS!  
Did you know that many store-bought citronella candles don't contain citronella oil? Instead, the candles are often just citronella ‘scented.’ BIG difference.  
  • Glass bowl or container
  • Decorations of your choice. You can use anything! (Lemon peels, orange peels, cinnamon sticks, lavender, rosemary, flower petals, river rocks, etc.)
  • 20 drops Citronella Essential Oil
  • 10 drops Lemongrass Essential Oil
  • 1 T Witch Hazel
  • Water to top off glass bowl or container
  • 1 unscented floating candle
  1. Gather decorations and arrange in a bowl. I recommend cutting them into two-inch pieces so they don’t bunch at the top of the bowl or cause it to overturn.                                       
  2. Add Witch Hazel, Citronella, and Lemongrass Essential Oil to the bowl.
  3. Fill in the remaining bowl space with water.
  4. After placing your bowl outside, top it off with the floating candle and light it to create a cozy, aromatic ambiance you and your guests can enjoy throughout the evening.
Fun fact about Citronella Essential Oil! There are quite a few recipes out there to create your own aluminum-free deodorant with citronella. (We will save those for another class.) Meanwhile, did you know that the aluminum in deodorants has been linked to health problems, including the neurological damage associated with Alzheimer’s disease, and conditions like anemia, Lou Gehrig’s disease, glucose intolerance, memory problems, and Parkinson’s disease? GROSS!

Playtime Balm
Ok this DIY is a little more complicated but definitely worth it! I promise. This will have you ready for all those mishaps that summer can bring.

Playtime Balm 
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 T beeswax
  • 10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
  • 10 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
  • 5 drops Myrrh or Helichrysum Essential Oil
  • 1 drop Peppermint Essential Oil
  • 5 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil 
Melt all ingredients except the oils in a double boiler. When cooled, add essential oils and pour into glass jars or lip balm tubes. Allow to harden.
Apply to knees, elbows, and any other place that might need a little extra love.

And that's it! You're ready for a summer barbeque!
