If you google essential oil safety, you’ll find a myriad of different opinions. But, the research proves them to be an incredibly safe way to find better health & well-being. We are committed to guiding you with products that benefit the whole family. dōTERRA has extremely high safety standards, their whole mission is to provide families with safe & natural tools that will offer them simple alternatives in order that they may find wellness and avoid the risks that come with modern medications. The dilution chart below will be very useful to have somewhere near your oils, but the biggest 2 things to keep in mind are: These oils are highly concentrated so less is more, but frequency is key & It’s always ok and typically recommended to dilute with a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil, or even olive oil!

As a mom (and now Me-Me), I was looking for safe products that could help deal with illnesses that popped up, while also improving the quality of our home. I have found comfort & power in these tools, and it’s my mission to make sure other moms & families find the same confidence.

My friends over at Schoolhouse Life wrote this article to help answer some of the most common concerns.  Are Essential Oils Safe to Use Daily?

DR Z Dilution Chart

IDK if I have shared my affiliation w/ Dr. Z and “Mama Z” Zielinski as of yet but I’ll definitely do that in an upcoming post 🙂  Do you know who they are?

April BOGO Day 2

What’s in your wallet? HaHaHa I usually have a jukebox playing in my head but now it’s commercials? Heaven help me! 🙂 I was actually wondering if you purchased yesterday’s Serenity/Balance BOGO for your toolbox?
(raise of hands) How many of you bit the bullet and got the BOGO Box yesterday? 
Did any of you decide to join as a Wholesale Customer in order to get the discount?

Speaking of heaven, I have to say that…
I woke up this morning feeling fine I woke up with heaven on my mind
I woke up with joy in my soul cause I knew my Lord had control
I knew I was walkin’ in the light cause I’d been on my knees in the night
And I’d pray till the Lord gave a sign and now I’m feeling mighty fine
Well I’m feeling mighty fine I’ve got heaven on my mind
Don’t you know I want to go where the milk and honey flow
There’s a light that always shines down inside this heart of mine
I’ve got heaven on my mind and I’m feeling mighty fine 🙂

I DO have a song!  Let me tell you… it’s for real!  With all this virus mess going around I’m ready more than ever for the Lord to return!!  After seeing how easily the world has conformed to the fear mongering and isolation, can you imagine how easy it’ll be for the antichrist to have the lost world bowing to his agenda?  How sad that is 😦  If you don’t know Jesus Christ as Savior would you please reach out ❤

sold outI hope if you were planning to buy the BOGO box that you did indeed get to that before it SOLD OUT!!  I knew it would 😀  Typically when there’s a “while supplies last” offer… it doesn’t lol~

But that’s ok because surprises are not for every one plus Day 2 is offering something rather rare in my opinion
BOGO_4These are two oils I don’t ordinarily purchase for myself due to cost… however, I do own them both because I have purchased them with points earned through the LRP program so they were FREE 😉

BUY Frankincense Touch $60.67 / $45.50 10mL
doTERRA Frankincense Touch provides the renowned benefits of Frankincense essential oil in a convenient roll-on applicator. Combined with Fractionated Coconut Oil, Frankincense Touch is the must-have oil blend to have on hand to soothe skin and provide a calming, balancing effect on emotions throughout the day. In addition to being used frequently in meditation, Frankincense is used to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin imperfections. doTERRA Frankincense Touch ensures the proper dose of this precious oil without over-dispensing due to its steel ball roll-on applicator.
8D2E7B3C-6070-4D7F-A603-91D6C2A6F393Promotes feelings of relaxation when applied topically
Helps reduce the appearance of skin imperfections
Rejuvenating and soothing to the skin

Get Neroli Touch 10mL FREE ($62.67 value)
Neroli essential oil is derived from the flowers of the bitterorange tree; in fact, there are three oils derived from this same tree—orange is derived from the orange peels, Petitgrain from the leaves and twigs, and Neroli from the flower. Much research has been conducted regarding the aroma of Neroli essential oil. According to research, Neroli oil instills relaxation, uplifts mood, reduces feelings of anxiousness, and promotes overall well-being. Applied topically, Neroli oil can be used to soothe skin and reduce the appearance of blemishes.
Neroli

Creates an uplifting atmosphere
May help reduce feelings of anxiousness
Soothes skin
Encourages relaxation

Frankincense helps with mental clarity, mood lifting, head tension, and skincare (anti-aging!) + SO much more!
Neroi- Smells like a floral that’s not too sweet and not too fruity. It smells like a meadow! In our house we use it for calming nervousness

What is the difference between paying retail versus wholesale? Wait.. did you.. er I just ask that question? LOL~  Anybody can just go online and pay retail but Wholesale Customer status comes with some major benefits!  Joining as a Wholesale Customer gets you the exact same benefits that a Wellness Advocate has except they do not have “permission” to resell so there’s no business opportunity for earning commission.  Check out this Comparison Guide to view the difference between a Wholesale Customer vs Wellness Advocate.

Why did I chose doTERRA over other big name essential oil companies?  I DID THE RESEARCH (and you should too)!  I discovered the founders made the decision to forego an income until the business was debt-free and they put up their own houses as equity.  I love how the company sources indigenously not just making the oil harvested THE BEST because it was grown WHERE the soil best grows the plant.  BUT, also EVERY bottle of oil has a code on the bottom that you can plug in to get all the sourcing information, right down to the GCMS reports. Most essential oil companies say their oil is 100% pure, but that is just simply not true.

They have partnered with various farmers and distilleries worldwide ensuring that we are closely involved.. and they HELP farmers by:

Generating Jobs

We seek to reduce poverty through generating ethically responsible employment in essential oil production.

Fair, On-Time Payments

We provide fair pricing. A fair price is one that has been contractually agreed on by all through dialogue and participation.

Building Supplier Capacity

We build the capacity of farmers, distillers, and producers of essential oils.

Sustaining Long-Term Partnerships

We develop long-term partnerships with growers and distillers based on solidarity, trust, and mutual respect.

Fair Labor Conditions

We require our partners to ensure fair labor conditions and to promote safe and healthy working environments.

Promoting Co-Operatives

We support and respects the right of all employees and producers to form and join cooperatives to bargain collectively.

Environmental Stewardship

Cō-Impact Sourcing promotes the use of energy efficient technologies and renewable energy technologies to minimize greenhouse gas emissions. dōTERRA supports regenerative agriculture practices, encourages agricultural producers to minimize their environmental impacts, and seeks to minimize the impact of waste streams on the environment. Priority is given to buying products made from raw materials that originate from sustainably managed sources, and bulk goods are dispatched by sea wherever possible to minimize carbon footprint.

Facilitating Community Development

We recognize that the well-being of communities surrounding our sourcing partners is key to the long-term viability of essential oil supply.

April BOGO Box & Day 1 TODAY

Heyyyy… hoooo… it was my birthday, did ya know? 🤣 My 50th birthday was 4/6 and due to quarantine we didn’t get to celebrate like I had planned (cuz y’all know I told all my family I wanted a “surprise party” lol). My little went out of her way to make it a special occasion none the less.. I woke up to a house FULL of balloons, breakfast in bed with an awesome homemade card I will keep forever 💕

DF152BAB-DAAF-4DAC-8A62-03000075AAA2

And now dõTERRA is helping me celebrate life at the half century mark (starting 4/20/20) with a new and exciting way to BOGO 🎉
94A121E8-A4A5-454B-AA64-974F47428E57
The BOGO Box is ONLY offered on Day 1 (WELL that’s not entirely true, it “while supplies last”, but they won’t) of the April BOGO specials, tho you do not have to buy the box to get all the BOGOs this week but if is definitely the most economical way as you’ll get EVERY special in ONE box with just ONE shipping charge.  This is a win/win for people who love surprises!!! Though we already know what the “buy” oils are (which is a first) we only know what Day 1 “free” oil is 🙂

Now, whether you choose to purchase the box on Monday you still have the option to purchase the Day’s special (limit 3/account)
9E0160A4-4A55-41AD-90C7-81F1C16BAB83
71119955-25F1-4E1F-94A5-A0AA51A247EDI use “Liquid Heaven” which is Serenity & Balance together with one of the calming, woodsy oils (Cedarwood or Vetiver) in my diffuser each night to help me feel like I’m sleeping on clouds HaHa yeah cheezy but it works that good ❤

IF you’re not yet a Wholesale Member this would be the best way to BOGO!  Join as a Wholesale Customer and pay the $35 enrollment fee, this immediately gives you WHOLESALE PRICE (for one full year.. when it’s time to renew you’ll pay $25 and receive a FREE Peppermint)! Buy the BOGO box on day 1 OR each BOGO special as it is revealed each day (either way you will not be disappointed however, on Friday you’ll look back and realize “I should’ve just bought the box!” lol~

0C470A38-EF46-4E09-8284-C8302C486CA0

68FDB877-0B15-4C3A-AAF6-931816BD874D

Such a great deal!!! Wholesale Customers: As long as you enrolled prior to April 1, you’re eligible to order on the Loyalty Rewards Program to earn points back on your order! (The longer you’ve use the LRP the higher % you earn back; tops out at 30% at 13 months).

When ordering on LRP you do need to add one other item to your order because the system requires one regular item to save your shopping bag template since the BOGO Box is a limited time offer and it will disappear from your template after processing. If you’re looking for an inexpensive item to add- Go for a lip balm or a tube of toothpaste! Totally worth it for the points you’ll earn!🤩
4DF45305-F911-4914-90FE-99294E636D1B

You DO NOT have to be a wholesale customer to take advantage of this BOGO box OR the daily BOGO Specials but you will have to pay RETAIL 😦 I mean, you can spend more money if that’s your prerogative but why would you… here’s the math:
BOGO Box Retail $266.67
To get a wholesale account would cost $35
BOGO Box Wholesale $200
AND if you enroll in the Loyalty Rewards Program you’re earning points which accumulate to $$ which you can spend later on whatever you want #FREEOILS

SO YOU’LL SAVE MONEY PAYING THE ENROLLMENT FEE 🙂

Stay-Home Orders in effect

People all over the world, join hands, start a love train, love train

How appropriate is that song at this very moment?  I’d say due to this whole virus issue it’s become pretty relevant.. figuratively speaking that is because I for one ain’t joining hands with nobody right now lol~

Before we get into how we’re spending this quarantine time let me share with you what my oil company is offering to help in your efforts to boost immunity and stay healthy ❤
March 20 cover

For those of you who wanna be a new Wholesale Customer or Wellness Advocate (potential for earning commission) NOW is the time!!!  Select enrollment kits are currently 20% OFF the already reduced price but just for THREE MORE DAYS (through 3/31/20)


And that $35 enrollment fee is waived and comes free with each enrollment kit.. which means you get a 25% discount on every purchase for one year with the ability to earn free oils with each purchase 🙂  (*Renewal each year will cost $25 and you’ll get a FREE Peppermint)

Here’s another bonus, A LOT of the Protective Blend Collection has been SOLD OUT since the virus started HOWEVER, they are included in the two larger kits!

If you need help getting started with essential oils I’m always here to help 😉 If you don’t know where to start please comment and let’s discuss your needs and how best to suit those needs.  Once your order has been placed I’ll reach out with an email and give you my personal contact information so that I can be reached with any questions or concerns.

Lots of people worry they won’t use or know how to use essential oils but we offer plenty of training as well as FREE ebooks to help you

 

So… about this STAY HOME ORDER… is your family under self-quarantine?  I know that people all over the world are in different phases of this order  but it seems we all are under the same type of order.  I thought WOW, I will have so much time to spend with Jesus, play games with the family, and finally get my whole house under deep clean mode… but seems like nothing has really changed for me as I’m still standing in the kitchen most all day, every day lol~  Which, y’all know that’s where I love being BUT I’ve got so much stuff in my fridge/freezer that I had to halt the process hahaha I mean it could be worse right, we could be without food as I know there are many others who struggle with facing that dilemma 😦

I have cleaned more the last couple weeks than I have since letting go of my cleaning business TWELVE YEARS ago… funny, I remember it being a lot more enjoyable haha of course I was getting paid to do it then.  I have washed walls, baseboards and scrubbed floors (on my hands and knees with a bucket and scrub brush) all with my Protective Blend Cleaner Concentrate (currently SOLD OUT and only available in the kits)
On Guard cleanerThis morning I woke up at 3:30 AM!!! #HeavenHelpMe There was NO going back to sleep so why bother just laying there… i got up and started my day… What’s that saying “early bird gets the worm”

Well, in some cases, she gets it, pulverizes it, makes ingredients to go with it and turns it into a deliciously beautiful creation for her young 🤣

My early morning consisted of washing/chopping veggies, spiralizing squash, cutting up fruits (I’m newly addicted to CFA fruit cups but can’t go), made a batch of avocado/egg salad, an “egg bake” for the family, grinding/sifting almonds into flour, making almond butter (which now can make the easiest almond milk) and then I wanted brownies 🤦🏻‍♀️ but a friend made cookies.. so I CREATED the best Vegan “broonookie” ever 🤤

Yes, I’ll make you some.. it’ll be on the porch 👋🏼 #LoveYaMeanIt

When following a plant-based diet I still enjoy organic “back yard” eggs and partake in plenty of sweets (without refined sugars) ❤️

She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. Prov 31:15

I gotta tell ya’ll how easy and inexpensive it is to MAKE YOUR OWN “whatever”

Almond Flour (Meal in this case): take approx 3 cups raw almonds & pour in high powered blender, start on low and go up to high, sift out the the bigger pieces and voila.  If you want a finer flour there’s a couple extra steps:  soak almonds overnight, peel off the skins, dry almonds in the oven (low heat/couple hours) and then grind
almond flourAlmond Butter: use those bigger pieces that didn’t sift through for flour/meal and add back to the blender, blend until smooth.  To make peanut butter you just drop them bad boys in the blender and blend until creamy and smooth.

Almond Milk: 3 Tbsp of almond butter with 1.5-2 cups water (E-Z-P-Z). Now this easy way of preparing homemade almond milk is simple however it will separate and the “sediment” will fall to the bottom so you’ll have to shake it up.  IF you want the “better” yet more time consuming way of making the milk there are a few more steps involved (and then the order in which I make all the almond products above are basically reversed lol)
Soak 1 cup almonds over night, remove the skins and add to 4 cups of water in high powdered blender (my husband likes it sweet so I will sometimes add 1-2 dates and/or vanilla), pour the milk through a cheesecloth and strain the pulp.  DO NOT throw away pulp, this can be dried in the oven (on low/couple hours) and then ground into flour.. and can later be added back to blender and turned to butter

Coconut Butter: Add 1 cup of unsweetened coconut and blend into butter

Oat Flour:  Add 1-3 cups of oats (gluten-free if needed) and grind to flour
COULD THAT BE ANY EASIER???

This morning I decided to try my hand at recipe concocting verses just altering 🙂  I really wanted some brownies but thinking about my family using plates to eat them on I nixed that idea and made Vegan Fudgy Brownookies <— idk if that’s a real word or one I just came up with but i’m sticking to it HaHaHa  Cookies can be mixed up in one bowl.  They seriously taste like fudgy brownies and best part is they’re handheld #NoDishesbrownookies

Create 2 flax eggs (2 Tbsp ground flax or chia with 6 Tbsp water soaked 10 mins)
Add 1 cup runny almond butter (any nut butter or tahini)
Add 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (or honey for non-vegan)
Mix in 1 cup almond flour/meal (or oat flour but will change consistency)
5-6 Tbsp cacao (or cocoa)
1/4 tsp salt
1/2-1 tsp vanilla
Fold in 1/2 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips (or Lily’s for sugar-free)
Bake on 350 for 15 mins

I promise these will be the best thing since sliced-bread (ohhhh… I have a great recipe for that too lol) as they literally melt in your mouth when eaten straight from the pan.. hey, how bout pouring yourself a glass of that cold almond milk ya just made to go with it 😉

Deep Blue is a blend of oils perfect for a massage after a long day or an intense workout. Colder weather can intensify the stiffness in your joints so use your oil and rub in tandem to ease movement. Massage deep blue with few drops of carrier oil onto growing kids legs before bedtime.  We add drops of this oil into a glass roller bottle (lick the lip gloss bottles we used to get as kids) with some carrier oil (like fractionated coconut oil, jajoba, almond or even vitamin E) and apply specifically to achy joints (elbows, knees, shoulder)… you think I’m crazy but you can literally feel the pain slip-sliding away 😉

DB rubHow ironic that I’ve been “promoting” the Deep Blue rub basically all week in the Simple Solutions Kit and here it is as a BOGO special!!  Trust me, do not worry about having “too much” rub… THERE’S NO SUCH THING!  My ball-playerS go through a tube of this stuff in NO TIME!!  It’s convenient for throwing in their gym bags and easy application before or after a game ❤ Oh be sure to check out all the other items in the Deep Blue product line

When you’re looking for the most economical way to join consider this..
1- you can always pay retail Y Tho?
2- you can pay $35 for a wholesale membership which offers you a 25% off retail (like getting a Costco or Sams card)
3- you can purchase an enrollment kit and your $35 fee is included in the already discounted price

May I suggest the new Simple Solutions Kit?  It offers more than you may expect and for today only when adding a BOGO special it offers pretty much double lol~

DeepBlue for aches, pains, & sore muscles (think “natural icy hot”)

How about some diffuser options?? For a LIMITED TIME the Petal and Lumo diffusers already come with free essential oils 🙌🏼 That plus today’s BOGO? 😱 #WinWin

What is so special about the essential oil brand my family uses? Purity!  Efficacy! Helping others!

An important aspect of the pursuit of purity includes the extensive scientific testing that dōTERRA® performs. We do more than 52 different tests, but the analytical chemistry is only part of the equation. Purity includes the biological chemistry, which is how the different products interact with our bodies. There is no way we can pursue what’s pure without adding biological chemistry into the discussion. That’s just one more reason I’m grateful to be aligned with a company that looks at the whole picture of purity.

Pictured below is a DNA molecule interacting with STAT3, a protein which is responsible for many important biochemical processes that has been studied alongside essential oils by dōTERRA’s research partners.
