I love my oils. I mean I REALLY love them. I've collected a whole big box, and as I paused in front of them this morning wondering what to choose, I laughed at myself, because I wanted to say it out loud to my little brown bottles!
Sounds ridiculous, I know.
But if your a person like me, who has spent her whole life avoiding artificial smells because they truly make me sick to my stomach, these pure compounds make me swoon. I delight in their aromatic goodness and immediately respond to their therapeutic vapors. As I type, ClaryCalm is wafting up to my brain, bringing me ease and helping me focus...I can feel it!
How else do I use my little bottles? I'm happy to share!
When I wake in the morning, if I need a little help rolling out of bed, I grab my peppermint from my nightstand and take a whiff. Just smelling it lights up my brain.
I get out of bed and brush my teeth with my On Guard toothpaste and wash my face with my Verage system and use my Immortelle anti-aging blend with my moisturizer...yum.
I take my whining dog for a walk (she will get a drop of cedarwood on her head to chill her out and ward off ticks).
This is my meditative time, so I put a dab or frankincense and sandalwood on my forehead to help me connect. It does just that.
I get back to the house and set up the diffuser to meet our needs for the day:
Sniffles? On Guard or Lemon, lavender and peppermint
Bummed out? Bergamot and Geranium
Hyper? How about a little Peace
Everyone gets fed and we make the lunches. Boys add a drop of lemon to their water bottles (I prefer Slim and Sassy for metabolic support...the oil is far better than that silly name!)
We take our supplements; I add the Phytoestrogen complex to balance my hormones (goodbye hot flashes!)
I drop them at school and I head to the office (where Deep Blue is hard at work). I'll will probably reach for an oil by midday to boost my brain or refocus (InTune--doTERRA's focus blend) or maybe I'll use Forgive for some grounding.
We'll return back home and the day will wind down. We might use some Digest Tabs after dinner if we need support with digestion-these taste awesome and are a natural alternative to Tums.
We will all take some Serentiy softgels and fill our diffusers for a good night's sleep (Serenity, Vetiver, Lavender, Breathe...)
Sounds like a lot, huh? Well, don't forget that I had a whole day in there, too, and my usage was spread out. All together, I only used about 15-20 drops of oil and that includes the 8-10 that go in the diffusers!
Essential oils are so concentrated that it only takes the smallest amount to make a big impact.
I have just changed the quality of my life (and my family's!) for about $2-3 per day! Amazing.
Such a simple way to alter my mood or support my kids, boost our immune systems and even help my pup.
Now it's your turn! Let me show you how to integrate these oils into your everyday...and, oh yeah, you'll end up smelling great, too!
A whole new world is waiting for you--one filled with precious, powerful, versatile plants and a community full of integrity and heart.
Snowing again this morning up at the house.
It's almost more than I can take, but I put this blend into the diffuser at the office and all was right with the world! Patients have been commenting on it all morning...so good!

Yet another snow day here. It started at about 3pm yesterday (after I picked the kids up early from school!) and it has been going ever since. We now have a foot and it's still coming. I'm hiding in nook upstairs to try to get some work done (ah! just after I typed those words, came the sound of steps on the stairs and requests for eggs! To be continued....)
Take two...(That's just how it goes around here)
This snowy day starts with me enjoying a cup of tea with Kelly. Lovely, right? Then I happen to glance at his feet and spot a very upsetting big toe. Kelly has the unfortunate habit of picking his toenails. It's nasty.
And now one has gone bad...very bad. I'll spare you the details, but I will mention how I'm treating it.
First we gave it a good soak: Warm water with a drop of Frankincence (for inflammation),
a drop of Melaluca (anti-bacterial and anti-fungal)
a drop of Helichrysum (for healing)
I've talked about the first two before, but I save the Heli for the big jobs. It's a pricey one, but an incredible healer. According to Kurt Schnaubelt, Ph.D (in chemistry) and the author of "The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils", Helichrysum "is so mild it is the preferred option for the immediate treatment of injuries, especially bleeding wounds. Dropping this oil into a bleeding wound sanitizes the wound, speeds the closure and effectively stops the pain. Using it undiluted on wounds avoids bringing other less diluted substances, such as fatty base oils, into the wound. It is self explanatory that using Helichrysum essential oil on wound requires a genuine and authentic oil."
Wow. There's a lot going on there and I need to be clear about several things:
1) I am not recommending you treat deep wounds with essential oils! Maybe Dr. Kurt would, but he has more knowledge than I.
When in doubt, get it checked out!
2) He's clearly making the point of buying quality essential oils. After doing years of research on this, I would only use doTERRA oils. Find out why:
Now back to my friend Heli:
Helichrysum is sometimes called "liquid stitches" because of it's anti-inflammatory and tissue-regenerating properties. And it's a powerful one. A drop is all you need. For unbroken skin, it is best used in dilution and this makes the oil more affordable. Dr. Kurt states that "a 1% dilution in sesame oil is equally as effective as it would be in higher concentrations."
After the soak, we put some Correct X ointment on it and a band-aid and Kelly said it already felt better. We will soak again, put a drop of Heli directly on the spot and re-apply the Correct-X before bed.
We also had a lesson in using the clippers...fingers crossed!

Today was one of those days that I woke with the threat of a headache. Last night was intense, as we sat with our middle-schooler and supported her as she shared her fears of being bullied at school. Emails were sent and calls were made and I tossed and turned thinking of our meeting with the principal this morning.
The meeting went well and things felt a bit more under control, but my mood and the day were still grey and the cold rain pored down. My head started to throb. Exhausted, I looked at Jeb and said, "I may actually need to take something."
Here's the thing: I am the biggest headache baby! Due to some ingrained poor postural habits, I'm susceptible to tension headaches and they debilitate me. I can't tolerate life. If I don't stay active, I'm setting myself up for a whopper.
Well, I haven't been active and my kids aren't making life easy. Jeb, exhausted himself, agreed that this might be the time to turn to some over-the-counter help. He told me to go get some Tylenol and recommended a dosage.
I went straight to the grocery store (because, of course, I had to get some food for the masses, and they would have medications, too). As I stood at the deli counter, my head pounded. I felt a little nauseous from the pain. I leaned over my cart as I waited for my sliced turkey and rubbed my temples and then I remembered! I had my Bali bag with me! (this is may travel storage bag, FREE for those looking to explore these oils with me with a kit.)
I pulled it out and ran the Past Tense over my temples and along the base of my skull, then over my shoulders. I pulled out the Digest Zen and took a drop...same with the Copaiba.
I grabbed my turkey and wheeled my cart away. Not five steps in and I realized that I FELT BETTER! I honestly was shocked! How could I forget that I have these tools? Life sweeps me away and I get in panic mode and forget about the tools I have right at my finger tips! I could have wept with relief!
I went about my shopping and headed out the door. I was halfway to my car when I realized that I forgot the Tylenol! I had to laugh out loud! that was the whole reason for my trip to the store in the first place!
I got in the car and reapplied my oils.
Small amounts, more frequently is the key to effectiveness with these plant medicines. I did not want that tension to revisit!
Past Tense is DoTERRA's tension blend. It is an amazing blend of wintergreen, lavender, peppermint, frankincense, cilantro, roman chamomile, marjoram, basil, and rosemary. Wintergreen's main component is methyl salicylate. Methyl salicylate is a topical analgesic, meaning it relieves pain when applied to the body. Yes, I'll take that!
I've already raved about Franky and lavender and Copaiba. Roman chamomile is incredible, too. This essential oil is composed primarily of esters, ranging from 66% to 78%. Ester rich oils are antispasmodic, anti inflammatory, calming to the CNS, and sedative. Yes, thank you, layer it on! You can read about the rest of these synergistic ingredients here.
Digest Zen's antispasmodic blend of oils are very effective for relieving occcasional nausea or tummy upset and it smells so soothing and yummy.
Some deep breathing, a few more applications of my oils and some gentle yoga and I was myself again.
I did end up getting some Tylenol just to have in our medicine drawer. It's good to have a full bag of tricks and I am respectful of them all. Now, if I can just remember to use them!
I have a business event tomorrow where I get 60 seconds to sell my wares.
I was planning on preparing today, but surprise!! A snow day and all my kids are home with me.
Well, the dang show must go on. This is how women in business roll!
We took the boys to our sledding hill today. While they screamed with delight sailing down the hill, my friend and I spent the entire time pushing and rocking and pushing and rocking her car out of it's ice trap.
We finally managed to get it out with the help of a kind stranger, but not before my toes succumbed to the cold. I'm susceptible to chilblains--painful inflammation that is triggered by cold exposure. It can be debilitating to me: my toes start to get red and puffy and they ache and itch. As soon as we got home, I took off my boots and grabbed my Aromatouch oil.
I massaged it into my achey toes and felt the immediate warmth and relief.
Cypress oil is the first ingredient in this doTERRA blend. Cypress aids in circulation and that's just what I needed!
The Aromatouch blend also has a lovely synergistic blend of other oils (including lavender and marjoram) that have been proven to reduce anxiety and therefore boost the immune system. The delicious scent cannot help but be inhaled and that's good, because the aromatherapy benefits of this oil include supporting the respiratory system!
It didn't take long for the boys to catch a whiff of this heavenly oil and before I knew it, I had the bare feet of two ten-year-old boys in my lap--toes wiggling, waiting to be massaged! Being a mom of three older boys, I know these moments of true connection are fleeting, so I relish the opportunity to nurture my boys in this way.
I rub this wonderful oil into their sweet, willing soles and I close my eyes and breathe deep.
Small moments like these fill me up.
And my feet feel great, too :-)
doTERRA offers this great kit to get you started with oils, and I'm here to help you every step of the way!
Having trouble deciding or confused about something?
This poor guy.
He's been a bit congested (that we've kept from blowing up into a full blown chest cough with Breathe) this past week and it has just migrated to his eyes. It's not all sticky and goopy YET, and I'm trying to keep it that way!
So Kelly is soaking his eyes with the powerful medicine of
melaluca (tea tree),
A wealth of in vitro data now supports the long-held beliefs that tea tree oil has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Studies have shown that Lavandula oil (lavender) is potent and demonstrates anti-fungal activity on a wide spectrum. Studies also suggest that lavender has an acceleratory effect on wound healing and it's calming effects are widely known.
Now Frankincense...that bad boy! Frankincense is known as the "king of oils" because of it's complex chemical structure. This complexity in turn provides diverse and extraordinary health benefits. Frankincense oil is harvested by cutting or "scoring" the Boswellia tree which grows in one of the world's harshest climates. The tree then "bleeds" a resin to heal itself. This powerful plant medicine is then collected and delicately distilled to extract the essential oils. All this incredible healing power concentrated into one drop of oil!
The research on Frankincense is crazy exciting (if you go for that sort of thing, which I do). It runs the full spectrum-- from healthy nails and skin, to mood management to suppressing cancer cell viability. So a little cold virus is no match for Franky-boy! See ya later sucker!
One more cool point about essential oils: many of them, with their germ fighting chemical materials, can actually
cross a cell membrane to work inside our body's cells and fight the bad guys!
You have probably heard that viruses are untouchable by antibiotics (antibiotics are used to target bacteria) because viruses are structurally different from bacteria. Viruses live and replicate inside of a human cell, they cannot live outside of a human cell. Viruses insert their genetic material into a human cell’s DNA in order to reproduce. Antibiotics cannot kill viruses because bacteria and viruses have different mechanisms and machinery to survive and replicate.
So to simplify all of that...essential oils directly influence the body by entering the bloodstream either through your skin, through the air or taken internally (you drink a drop...read about that here). The unique structural features of essential oils allow them to be active both on the surface of cells and within cells.
Germs are all around us, so arm yourself with some tools people!
Having these incredible plant medicines right at home, at my fingertips, allows me to take charge of our family's health care and stop those infections in their tracks before they become a problem.
Every little invasion makes our immune systems stronger, so keep it short and fight back with these essential oils!
They are safer, cheaper and, most times, more effective than traditional over-the-counter medications and there are no residual side effects-- our gut flora remains intact, our skin remains clear and our bellies calm.
Oh! And our wallets are still full! Kelly's eye soak probably cost me under $2.00. Compare that to a trip to the doctor! Essential oils cost pennies per drop and really pack a PUNCH!
(Please note: I am not against conventional medicine! It has literally saved my child's life and I will be forever grateful and respectful. But we are very capable of managing our every day health at home with a little knowledge of our bodies and some natural tools!)
So Kelly will be fine. He will soak with this amazing, great smelling, soothing concoction and he will heal.
How are you gonna heal next time? Wanna talk about it?

Today I was struggling.
I was the early morning bus driver and had to miss my quiet time. The ride in was bleak.
The roads were slushy and grey and the sky looked the same.
When I got back home, I could not get it together. I felt really down. I knew the steps to take to make myself feel a little better, but I couldn't muster up the energy to take them...I couldn't get myself to care. This did not feel good. At all.
I dragged myself over to my oils and sought out the heavy hitters: Frankincense and Copaiba.
Frankincense is known in oil land as the "king of oils" and it has almost mythical properties. While I'm all for a good myth, I like my science, so I rely on the research for this one. Frankincense is known to support healthy cellular function and promotes feelings of peace, relaxation, satisfaction, and overall wellness. I'm in.
Copaiba is the new kid on the block for doTERRA and is off to a crazy start. When they released this oil in October, doTERRA had not expected the amazing response. The stock they had forecast to last a year was sold out within six weeks. Here's why...
Copaiba essential oil is so unique and effective because of its high level of beta-caryophyllene. In 2008, European scientists learned that betacaryophyllene had cannabinoid-like properties, but Copaiba does not act on the same nervous system receptors as cannabis (marijuana), so you have no brain impairment...meaning Copaiba essential oil has the ability to deliver major benefits without giving you the high.
I use it because it has been shown to help support the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and respiratory systems. It’s also a powerful antioxidant that promotes immune health. No other oil that I know of has such a broad range of system support. Jeb takes a drop or two under his tongue before bed to reduce anxiety and help him sleep. He says he has never found anything that helped ease the nighttime "mind chatter' like the Copaiba does. I like to add mine to a little water with a drop (or two, sometimes it's hard to regulate and that's ok!) of water. (read about internal use here)
And that's just what I did this morning: I put my frank and copaiba in a glass of water with some extra vitamin D-3 (a must-do in the winter months in the northeast) and then took my Lifelong Vitality vitamins. I actually took an extra dose of the EO Mega's because I felt like my brain could use the boost and a little extra protection. I felt like I was tipping towards depression and my brain needed some support to stay away from there!
I then grabbed some Elevation (Joyful blend! Euphoric floral scents of Lavandin, Lavender, Melissa, Ylang Ylang, and Osmanthus with Tangerine, Elemi, Hawaiian Sandalwood, and Lemon Myrtle) out of my stash and put it everywhere! I put it on the gnome, in the diffuser and in my humidifier, I dropped it on my salt lamp. Sounds like a lot, but it was only about 10 drops. Then, I took a big sniff and headed outside.
As much as I love my oils and other tools, I still need to move! It's so important to get your body MOVING, especially when you don't want to. Luckily, the sun had decided to come out and she warmed my back as I skied through the field.
Ahhh!! I was feeling better already!
