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 ofte...

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 ...

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? Ar...

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 b...

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 mistak...

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 ar...

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 star...

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, ...

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”...

Five for Peace

If you had the chance to sit back and observe the world from an aerial view, you’d probably see the hustle and bustle this month enhanced by 500%. What do I mean by that? Well, if you consider your own world, you probably feel the pressure of adding tasks to your already busy situation and having thoughts of how am I going to get this all done? But, somewa...

I Wish You a Life You’re Crazy About

Are you crazy about life or does life make you crazy? My life seems crazy right now, but I am crazy about my life. Whether you work 1 job, 2 jobs, 3 jobs, for someone else, for yourself, are a stay at home mom or volunteer your time for the good of others, there is no denying that this time of year makes an already crazy busy life (even one your crazy about...

My Heart is Full of Gratitude & Happiness

Have you ever gone through something in life and wondered why you are going through it or feel majorly inconvenienced? Well, when I learned about Hurricane Irma’s possible arrival to the whole state of Florida, zoning in on the east coast, that is exactly how I felt. I thought in my mind, “Seriously? We just went through this crap last year wit...
