Hi there! I'm Renae Bentley and most days you can find me teaching dance exercise classes, although some days I find my way to the tennis courts to play a few sets! I started teaching aerobic dance in the early 1980's and have been teaching group fitness classes ever since. My degree is secondary education, and although I never taught in a high school classroom after college graduation, I have always been a teacher of children and youth, as well as adults. I love teaching people how to use essential oils to support their overall health and wellness! I enjoy teaching fitness, wellness, and healthy eating, so I named my business "BENT on Healthy Living"! I am passionate about Jesus, my family and serving my fellow humans through mission work and partnering with missionaries who are reaching many people all over the world! Some of my favorite "people" are our two dogs, Blitzen, our Black Lab boy, and Comet, our little girl Shepherd/Lab mix we adopted from the Humane Society. I share them lovingly with my husband, Howie, who is also a great human, lover of oils, and car dealership owner. We live on Galveston island in Texas, so we boat and fish whenever we have down time. We are blessed to have brought two beautiful people into the world, a son and a daughter, who are now grown, on their own, making us proud, and making the planet a better place.
When it comes to getting started with Young Living you have 2 awesome choices. Option 1 is getting started by purchasing your premium starter kit. Option 2 is creating a custom kit based on your specific needs. One is an amazing value and has something for almost every situation and the other is super targeted to your need. Win, win I'd say. No matter what option you choose I have a short book for you to download and print off to help walk you through the order process.
Blend 1 cup organic coconut oil and 1 cup raw shea butter together with a mixer in a glass or stainless bowl until smooth & fluffy. Mix in 10-20 drops each of lavender, frankincense, and lemon essential oils (or whatever oils you like!). Thicken by stirring in small amounts of arrowroot powder at a time until it is the consistency you like. Spoon into glass jars and refrigerate until set. Note: Does not have to remain in refrigerator after it is set 😉 Caution: Don't put this on your skin and go lay out in the sun because citrus oils (lemon) can cause photosensitivity 😉
To any prepared brownie mix (or homemade batch), add 1-2 drops of Peppermint Vitality oil & stir before pouring in baking pan. Best. Brownies. Ever.
