Is it to early for Christmas?

Since it has been mass mayhem of Holiday Products for dóTERRA this weekend things have been a little crazy. Jammed up servers and busy phone lines gallor as advocates try to get the deals before they run out. It’s kinda like black Friday for dóTERRA lol.

Even though it is only a few days after Halloween I am already thinking Christmas. I want to get out my tree and declarations and start putting up lights outside.

I swear every year I am starting a little earlier. And my husband thinks I’m even crazier. But having a new house I am just excited to decorate. I mean come on we have already had our first Christmas party so why not.

So with my Holiday Joy oil in the mail I might make it a couple weeks. Or I might not and decorate the minute it shows up we will see.

What can I say I’m in the Holiday Spirit.

I am offering a free Holiday Joy oil with the home essentials kit. Contact for details.

I hurt inside.

I have to remind myself this every day!! I must remain true to myself and not stoop down to that level. 

I say a little prayer today.

Lord,
Give me the strength to keep the negatives away, to treat my friends and family with the respect they deserve, and to reevaluate the people I keep close to my heart.
Please help me to be fair to them and to be mindful and kind to them. Life is not a competition and shouldn’t be lived that way.
I pray for your guidance.
Aman!

Why I chose dōTERRA

Lately I have been getting a lot of the same question. “What is the difference between Young Living and dōTERRA.”  Living in an area where dōTERRA is not very well known company and Young Living is the norm I seem to get this a lot. And just to clarify a few things first off. I have absolutely nothing wrong with Young Living. In my opinion if your doing oils that is better off than not doing anything at all.

1. dōTERRA tests their oils 3 times and if the oils are not up to standards they would rather pull that oil off the shelf than use it.  In example the Melissa crop (one of our most expensive oils) got flooded this year and they do not meet standards so they pulled the oil off the shelf. Once they have the crops back to their standards of testing they will put them back on the shelf.
This is big for me as I use these oils on my children and only want to use the best.

2. dōTERRAs oils are grown in their natural state throughout the world.

While some people will argue this is not good you can’t control what was in them before they started growing them I have to say can you say that about crops anywhere. In a country where pollution is high unless there is a complete bubble around your crops you can’t tell me that they haven’t been exposed to something. Back to the testing 3 times.

3. Now this does not pertain to every yl advocate. But I have met quite a few that it does. I am also friends with some yl advocates and know this does not pertain to them. But back to my point: I left high school 13 years ago. When you feel the need to talk trash to a competitors face (this happened to one of my downlines and I was extremely disgusted.)  please make sure you have the documentation to back your claims. In example in this situation my downline was told that we water down our oils and they are weak. First off there was a lawsuit that resulted in that both companies can not talk smack about each other. You can get sued so don’t talk smack please. Second there is a man name Dr. Pappas who is one of the worlds well known reknowned aromascientists and all of these companies (not limited to the two I am talking about) pay him to test these oils. He is a genious research his studies it is quite interesting. He will tell you no problem what he finds in all these companies oils. Good or bad.

So in my   conclusion is any company better than the other NO. Just do your research and make sure to choose what is good for your family not for the people trying to sell to you myself included.  If a person is trying to sell to you and all they can say is bad things about the other company are they looking out for your best interest NO. Choose what is best for you! Not for them!!

DIY Laundry soap :)

I have been making my own laundry soap for about a year. Not only because its cheaper but it really does get my clothes cleaner.

After starting to use essential oils I decided maybe I should try a different soap with my dōTERRA. I came across a few different recipes and got some inspiration so this is what I came up with!!

10 drops of Purify Blend
10 drops of Lemon EO
2 cups borax
2 cups of washing soda
2 cups of liquid castille soap
30 cups of water

Bring to boil around 10 cups of water and dissolve the borax and washing soda. Get a 5 gallon pail and add the remaining water castille soap and EO. Mix in soap/soda mixture and let set!! I plan on making some cool gallon mason jars up to keep in my cupboard!! Enjoy!!

I will also be using vinegar and lavender for a natural fabric softener!

🙂

* I got my inspiration for these recipes for Living Simply blog and CampWander make sure to check them out!!

Webinar and GIVEAWAY!!!

So I am in the process of setting up a webinar for one of my downline and decided to do one for my followers here and on my blog facebook page.

With that I want to share with as many people the webinar that I can.

So I am asking you to share my facebook page and come back and tell me you did it and make sure you like my page and I will put you in on a drawing for 2 of my favorite oils Wild Orange and Lemon. I drink these in my water every day and also use them in the difuser, on my kids, cook with them, clean with them, you name it.

A little info on the oils!!

Wild Orange

Diffuse Wild Orange for its effectiveness killing pathogens, and enjoy its incredible aroma while it disinfects and kills bacteria.  It is an excellent oil to diffuse in a car during long trips.  Wild Orange is certified by the FDA to be GRAS and 1-2 drops in ¼ cup of water can be taken internally for acid reflux or heartburn. Use topically for a calming, yet invigorating,  massage.  Use in a spritz to spray bed sheets or as an fragrant pathogen killing spray in bathrooms and kitchens. Use with a carrier to sooth an infant’s tummy.  Use topically in a massage during the early stages of a cold.

Lemon

Traditionally, Lemon oil has many uses. It is a powerful antiseptic and can be an effective means to improve circulation.  It is a considered to be an excellent antibacterial agent. This makes it well suited for respiratory infections or inflammation.  Historically, adding a few drops of Lemon oil to warm water with a sweetener has provided relief for many suffering from coughs or sore throats.

Additionally, its pleasant sweet aroma can be uplifting to lighten any mood as well as cleansing to the environment.  One of the easiest ways to receive the remarkable qualities associated with Lemon oil is to diffuse it into the air or utilize direct inhalation from the palms of the hands. Lemon oil can effortlessly be applied to the bottom of the feet or added to a glass of water as a purifier and for a quick energizing boost.  Interestingly, Lemon oil has also been known to be strengthening to the fingernails. Simply apply the oil directly onto the nails.

Candida Cleanse and getting myself healthy again.

Back in May I got put on the depo shot. Needless to say my life hasnt been the greatest since than. From bleeding multiple times a month up to every other week now, to gaining over 40 lbs, to major hot flashes and mood swings I felt like an old lady going thru menopause. I wasn’t all of my symptoms that I experienced and still are  were from the depo shot.

After consulting my doctor and having some blood tests done it was determined that I have a vitamin D deficiency and all the other symptoms should subside slowly as the shot wears off.

One of the main issues aside from the bleeding and hormones has been the weight gain. I had been doing so well and had finally felt comfortable with my body for once. I am a emotional eater and my emotions were in over drive. I felt like I was 9 months pregnant with no baby.

So now I have a plan! I will be doing a candida cleanse because according to the candida test I have an overload and that is not good for my body. The cleanse is super strict (no sugar, no processed foods no tomato based products and so on) and I will be doing it for 2 months. I also will be working out 5 times a day no ifs ands or buts about it.

This is going to be a tough ride for me. So
any emotional support or ideas for workouts at home that don’t include buying a bunch of things will be so helpful thanks!
