Tis the season

…to be jolly Fa La La La La La La La La
Oils for wordsCan I just say that we should always show love and give “gifts” all year long but HELLO it’s always nice to GET too right LOL weren’t expecting that were ya?

December is here, and you know what that means! Frankincense for FREE!!!

Each month, all year long doTERRA offers it’s customers opportunity for a FREE oil and a 10% off special, since I’ve been using essential oils (5 years now) December offers FREE FRANKINCENSE
Christmas FrankThe Gift of Kings Frankincense Promotion runs Dec 1 – Dec 31 (sometimes they’ll extend that through January 15th BUT DON’T HOLD YOUR BREATH, order this month!!).  There’s no better way to give the gift of good health than now, when it’s free and doesn’t cost you to share bwahahaha (who am I kidding, I hoard er uh covet my Frank). Frankincense is truly the “gift of kings,” and when you place a 200 PV order before December 31, you’ll receive a 15 mL bottle of Frankincense for free. #giftofkings
free frank 200pvFrankincense is the “king of oils,” with properties known to promote feelings of peace and overall wellness while providing modern health benefits.  “When in doubt, pull Frank out” is the motto my family lives by 🙂 Renowned as one of the most prized and precious essential oils. In addition to its notoriety in the New Testament, the Babylonians and Assyrians would burn Frankincense in religious ceremonies and the ancient Egyptians used Frankincense resin for everything from perfume to salves for soothing skin. This centuries-old knowledge contributes to the modern uses of Frankincense today. It’s soothing and beautifying properties are used to rejuvenate skin and help reduce the appearance of imperfections when applied topically. Y’all, I use this on my rosacea and nobody even knows I have it anymore…well, I guess you could say I don’t have it anymore lol but if ever there’s a sign of flaring it’s time to bring ole Frank in for a visit.  As the king of oils, Frankincense is known to support healthy cellular function when used internally.*  Frankincense promotes feelings of peace, relaxation, satisfaction, and overall wellness.  Frankincense can be used aromatically, internally* and topically.

**I CAN ONLY RECOMMEND USING CPTG OILS INTERNALLY  Click here —> Learn more about the internal use of Essential Oils ❤ Yes, it is safe when following the “rules” and NO, not all oils are safe for consumption (so don’t go to your local grocery store and start drinking Eucalyptus or even their brand of Frankincense… who knows what’s in there)
EO internal book coverBUT WAIT… THERE’S MORE if you participate in the LRP/Loyalty Rewards Program, not only will you get free Frankincense with your order but you’ll also receive the POM/Product of the Month free with is Holiday Joy AND (yes, I said and in bold, all caps because there’s just so much excitement swirling around haha) anyone who orders this month can order Arborvitae at 10% OFF and enjoy a free Snowman Gift Topper
Dec pomListen if you love the spicy, sweet smell of Holiday Joy this is the ONLY time of year to get it so go ahead and order extra on your LRP this month (y)  Seriously!  And it won’t return until 11/1/2019 (yikes)

Your metabolism & what would you do with $50 FREE

I am in love w/ the many products of doTERRA.  Not just their essential oils but the supplements, the household cleaners and personal care items.

TODAY (11/30) is THE LAST DAY to take advantage of their Give the Gift promotion where you can earn 50 free product credits (equals $50) and think you don’t need anything… trust me you NEED essential oils/products in your life if you’re wanting to have abundant health in a natural way!

If you’ve been with me for longer than a hot minute then you know I used to be heavy but worst of all UNHEALTHY!  I truly believe that at 203 lbs my biggest issue was that my metabolism had just come to a complete HALT. I’m not longer 203 lbs but I still want to ensure my metabolism stays rev’d and doesn’t stop! A part of that is E-A-T-I-N-G (that seems to be a dirty word for most people trying to lose weight).  I believe that in order keep the metabolism burning you have to feed it (like a fire.. it’s hard to get that fire burning but if you keep throwing logs on it’ll keep burning, but if you let it burn out, ya gotta work hard to start it all over again) so you need to EAT!  Eating has always been a favorite past time hahaha but now rather than eating a bag full of Hershey Drops (are those still a thing) I opt for an apple with homemade peanut butter OR grapes with a few almonds.

Here’s just a few ideas for boosting your metabolism w/ healthy food items that you may not know about:

Green Tea: An effective shield used for reducing cholesterol, fighting cancer and heart diseases. All due to it large amount of ECEG polyphenols w/n the tea that serve as an antioxidant. It increases the body’s natural mechanism for burning calories to release energy. The whole process is called thermogenesis. It prevents the fat deposition and keeps the appetite under monitor.

ACV-Apple Cider Vinegar: An effective weapon for the digestive system. It works by reducing the meal’s impact over the insulin level of blood. Should be consumed before a meal. This is the reason many people use it as a salad dressing. It helps in quick breakdown of fats and totally calorie free. I drink a “Good Girl Moonshine” (THM). 2 cups water, 2 Tbsp ACV (except I just use one), lil’ sweetener, juice of a lime OR lemon, handful of frozen strawberries and ground ginger, mix all in the blender and WOW!

Cayenne Pepper: Spicy foods always add taste to a meal. They also tend to boost up the metabolism. In addition to helping bringing down cholesterol, fighting inflammation (caused by all that wheat we shouldn’t be eating), it serves as metabolism booster.

Grapefruit: Works by reducing the insulin content w/n the body. Contains vitamin C which serves as metabolism booster. (I remember growing up my oldest sister always had grapefruit for breakfast whenever she was “dieting”)

Ginger: NOT even talking about all the digestion benefits, ginger is a great herb! The extract of ginger root can be taken as a supplement. You can add it in the form of small pieces or grate it. Adds tons of flavor and boosts metabolism.  I like to add ginger to all my juices (not the carton or glass containers but the kind you make at home with a juicer and veggies).

Cinnamon: As a spice, not only does cinnamon have a pleasant spicy taste and wonderful aroma to pretty much anything you add it to, but it also has a host of metabolic support properties when consumed.  Daily supplementation with common cinnamon in the form of a 1,000 mg capsule twice a day resulted in significantly positive effects on healthy blood sugar metabolism.  The most interesting discovery of this study was that these benefits appeared, in many cases, to continue after the participants in the trial group stopped taking the supplement, suggesting possible gene expression and other changes at the cellular level.

NOW, let’s talk about essential oils and our metabolism 🙂 #ItsAllAboutTheOils

When essential oils enter the bloodstream, they have an effect on the whole body. The oils circulate through the bloodstream and interact with tissues and cells throughout the body.

Eventually the circulating oils must pass through the liver, which is an organ situated in the lower-right side of the thorax, below the ribcage. The liver is thought to be the primary site of essential oil metabolism within the body. Metabolism is a term that refers to the life-sustaining chemical reactions occurring within living cells that provide for growth, reproduction, resiliency, and response to the environment. When the essential oil moves into the liver, specialized enzymes work to break down individual compounds into metabolites. These metabolites continue to circulate within the body before being eliminated, primarily in urine but in the poo, through the skin, or exhaled from the lungs.

LLV: doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack is full of essential nutrients, metabolism benefits, and powerful antioxidants designed to help promote energy, health, and lifelong vitality.A long life full of vitality and healthy aging begins with providing your cells with essential nutrients and metabolic factors to help them perform optimally.  If you want to create a life of optimal wellness, consider taking Life Long Vitality (LLV) daily.

Slim & Sassy: The Metabolic Blend (comes as an essential oil or softgel for convenience) is uplifting and energizing, designed to help boost your metabolism and manage hunger cravings. Slim & Sassy  can be used as part of a weight management plan when combined with exercise and healthy eating.  Watch this short video to learn more
Slim & Sassy Gum is yet another great way for you to get more of this wonderful essential oil blend into your daily routine.
doTERRA Slim & Sassy TrimShake is a convenient and delicious weight management shake mix that provides essential nutrients and 70 calories per serving. This low-calorie shake is designed to help the user fight off hunger cravings, alleviate fatigue, enhance energy levels, and provide the body with important nutrients.
Slim & Sassy New You Kit can help with weight management and can assist in curbing cravings, promoting a healthy metabolism, and enhancing energy.  This kit is the BEST DEAL!  It comes with TWO trim shakes, the LLV supplements and four Slim & Sassy essential oils (great for adding to water or to up the flavor of your chocolate or vanilla shakes, I prefer to use it topically)
Slim Sassy kit
**I can only recommend use CPTG (Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade) essential oils internally.
I heard on the radio this morning that we, the public, as individuals spend $100,000 on fitness… why not get a wholesale account to help reduce your individual costs in that statistic 😀

Daily Health Habits… are you challenged?

Ya’ll wanna hear something ironic??
I have allergies out the wazoo and for years I took an OTC that wiped me out to the point that when I came home from work I zonked on the couch until someone yelled for dinner… some nights there was cereal involved!

Once I stepped into the world of essential oils we don’t even keep acetaminophen in the house anymore!  But I’m still “challenged” when it comes to daily health habits.  I don’t just love my oils, I LIVE THEM!  I use them daily!

Here’s the ironic part… even still there’s a challenge involved, ya see I’m the caretaker, to everyone, except S-E-L-F!  When I get physically “down” with something (for instance right now with allergies) I neglect to be a strong user :/  It’s weird, I mean, I’m still rolling but if I had been paying attention and being aggressive with my protocols I wouldn’t get to this point!!  I get busy and wrapped up in ballgames, meal plans, school happenings.. I neglect the self-care.. I forget to plan ahead for MY day and lay out all the necessities and then BAM here it is full-blown allergy attack!

I am Johnny-on-the-spot with other family members/friends issues… I can give them instruction on how to use what and how often but when it comes to myself I tend to fall FLAT!
whole family

I realized a couple of days ago—I HAVEN’T EVEN BEEN TAKING MY LLV (LIFELONG VITALITY) SUPPLEMENTS!  Here’s what happens—I GET BUSY!  I get caught up in preparing for everything and everyone else besides myself, we go outta town and it all starts by eating poorly (I am telling ya, ya cannot stay healthy eating out EVEN if all you eat is a salad), then the sleep gets altered which means you’re mental capacity is already lacking the ability to function, then you forget to stay on top of things physically and before you know it YOU’RE SICK!  Even healthy people can be stricken with a weakened immune system when you’re worried about everyone else… ALL THE TIME!  But guess what?  There’s hope (haha there’s actually a HOPE oil)!  There’s oils specifically for boosting immunity and then there’s these awesome supplements ❤

LLV 3

You’d think that doTERRA’s number ONE seller would be Frankincense or Copaiba and though these are THE BEST essential oils in my opinion, the #1 selling product is the LLV 🙂 #SaysALot  **Follow these tips for boosting your immune system!!!

GUYS!!! Have you heard about the aHmAzInG promo this month!?!
I MEAN THERE’S STILL TODAY & TOMORROW LEFT TO SNAG THIS DEAL!!!
Give the Gift” –

24 under 20

A membership just allows you to get your oils at 25% off retail. No selling requirements, no order requirements, ever.  It’s like purchasing a Costco or Sams card, you’re paying a fee in order to get the discount.  One thing those warehouses don’t offer is additional incentive to renew that membership… doTERRA offers you a discounted renewal fee of $25 PLUS it comes with a FREE PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL
