Saturday Skincare Snippet

It's Saturday so let's talk skin! I decided I wanted to start this casual Saturday Skincare Snippet blog segment because the more I talk to people, the more I realize that they just are not real concerned with what they put on their skin and I find this mind boggling.  Why? because if you took some of these commonly used chemicals and put them in recipes you...

2021 is Going to Bloom!

 Hi there friend.  I just wanted to wish you and yours a blessed holiday week. As we transition over to 2021, it's a good time to reflect and to think about the changes we'd like to carry over to the new year.  One thing I do is I pick a "word of the year."  For 2020, I chose the word "Move" and things sure did!  For one, I was let go from my job of 7 years ...

Festively Fall!

I hear the first day of Fall was yesterday ... I didn't pay much attention because here in Sebastian, FL it is still pretty hot and humid.  My friends from up north laugh when I jump up and down with excitement because I feel a slight "crispness" in the air because the temp outside is 83 not 93.  It is true though! If you're a true Floridian you know what I ...

Essentials of Summer

It's Summer!  With that comes heat, bugs and lots of activities.  It is one of my favorite times of the year! How about you? There are always lots of fun-filled events, such as barbeques, picnics, fishing, boating, vacations or staycations, home projects and much more! It’s all good & exciting!  Just like last summer, I have listed some of my favorite summer...

Discover a Better Way for You and Your Family

I do not know what your pain points are, but we all have them.  The earthly essentials we use take care of about 80% of what occurs in the home.   Some of these things are extremely toxic and harmful. Three of the biggest culprits of toxicity are Prescription Drugs, Cosmetics (body, skin and hair care) and Household Cleaners.  Did you know that the words “Fr...

Spice It Up With Oregano

A lot of people I talk to never think of using essential oils in the kitchen, but you can, IF and ONLY IF  you are using a high quality, PURE essential oil like dōTERRA . A lot of essential oils (or should I say "claim to be") you find in the store, or places like Amazon or eBay, are not really essential oils at all. They are "fragrance" oils and are often ...

The Layers of Life

Sometimes I just like to run with no music, especially on my early 5 a.m. runs. The silence is music to my ears.  Just me, nature, my breathing and my thoughts. It really is a form of meditation because thoughts come in and they leave. One morning I realized life is really a bunch of layers.  Starting with the surface, layer number one. This layer, the outer...

Purity is the Only Thing That Matters

"We had an independent lab test the purity of 33 oil samples from well-known names in the essential oil industry to see what was really inside each bottle." ConsumersAdvocate.org Consumers Advocate , an independent review site with no affiliations to any essential oil company, recently studied the top-selling essential oil companies on the market today. In ...

Pack Your Own Lunch

Pack Your Own Lunch When you pack your own lunch, you get to choose what you’re going to feed your mind and body. We make conscious efforts when it comes to diet, exercise, activities, and books to read, so why is it that we tend to settle when it comes to our jobs?  Of course not everyone settles, but statistics prove so many do. Are you settling? Are you h...

School is Back. Stay Intact.

It's that time of year again when you’re probably saying to yourself “where did summer go?”  All of a sudden there’s lots to think about and you are moving quickly to get all your ducks in a row.  As you shop for school supplies, new outfits and shoes, don’t forget to stock up on your essential oils to avoid the sick-o blues!  doTERRA's Top 10 foundational o...

Smells That Make You Go Bloom

It has been a while since I have blogged, but today I feel focused and since Spring is all about renewal, it feels like a great day to write one. Since May is often referred to as May Flowers due to April Showers, I thought it would be a great opportunity to share some info about some of dōTERRA’s beautiful floral oils. It makes me smile to type that because...

REACH

My word for 2018 was Trust.  It served me well. It offered me support when I had moments of self-doubt. It got me back on track as the Universe reminded me, I was on the right path and doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing.  Each day I was encouraged to trust and keep going, which gave me momentum.  At the end of the day, God doesn’t make mistakes, so...

The Smiles of Smell

When we talk about essential oils we often don’t think of the emotional outcomes associated with the aroma.  We hear a lot about the amazing support they provide our bodies, but sometimes the power of smell is overlooked.  Yesterday, I went to a Holiday Bazaar  and set up my doTERRA table.  People would walk by, some not sure what essential oils are, then th...

Simply Science

If you're not familiar with essential oils and not quite sure what they are, it can be a little confusing with all of the information and hype out there. Some of it being accurate and some of it not. So how do you know what is true?  I didn't know much when I first got started with doTERRA, but I did my research beforehand and one aspect that I love the most...

Do you put a price tag on your health?

I felt like I had to sit down and write this blog because I come across people every day who I believe think that I am selling essential oils because they smell good, it’s fun to have a diffuser and concoct different recipes and it’s trendy.  Honestly, I really didn’t know what essential oils were just 3 years ago and the only reason I started using them was...

Why Home-based Businesses are Becoming the Norm

More and more every day you hear about or see posts on social media of people, like me, launching or totally rocking some type of home-based business. Whether it is a product or service, a direct sales or network marketing company, it is happening all around us and in the next five years approximately 80 million people will be engaging in this entrepreneuri...

How to Stay Motivated When Your Heart is Crying

Yep, I am sure, like me, you have those times when you know you should be more proactive, but you procrastinate or feel frozen, because your heart is not feeling it. I know for me, in order to be excited and pumped up, I have to believe in what I am doing and be passionate about it. So what do you do when you find yourself in this type of situation, but unti...

It's Time to Spring Forward

OK, so it usually goes like this. It’s January 1st…. a new year.  You’re all psyched. New Year, new goals, fresh start, hopes, dreams, aspirations. You get the drift. Then life continues, days get lost and those goals and aspirations fade away into everyday madness. You find yourself back in the same grueling grind and before you know it, 2 months have gone ...

I have purpose.

2018 is here. It’s a new chapter with 365 pages and as I write this blog, we have 363 left. Where did pages 1 and 2 go? Page 1 was a blast and an awesome start to the New Year.  Page 2 not so much.  I struggled, and my thoughts were not my friend. As I had these debilitating thoughts, I kept thinking of the books I am currently reading: “She Means Business”...
