Ginger-Lime Brown Sugar Scrub DIY recipe

Ginger Lime Scrub

This Ginger-Lime Brown Sugar Scrub is super easy to make, and also makes a great gift! This scrub helps to exfoliate and soften your skin during fall & winter months. For best results, use one to two times a week on hands, feet, legs, or arms.

If you don’t love the Ginger Lime scent, omit those and add your favorite dōTERRA oils.

Ingredients:

¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup turbinado sugar
½ cup dōTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil
10 drops Lime oil
5 drops Ginger oil

Note: Turbinado sugar is a large grained sugar that helps with deep exfoliation. If you don’t have turbinado sugar, you can use all brown sugar.

Instructions:

Combine brown sugar, turbinado sugar, FCO and essential oils in bowl.
Stir until well combined.
Store in airtight container.

To use, apply a small amount to hands and scrub for 30 seconds or until sugar dissolves. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Delicious!

Don’t get mad… get money!

Its Raining Money

I LOVE this mantra, which I stole from bossbabe.me.

If you’re not where you want to be in your business, learn the skills you need to level up, and get to work!

Success is a decision… and I’ve seen it said by many success experts that it breaks down to something like 10% skillset and 90% mindset, which seems crazy, but it’s really all in your head. If you decide that you’re going to be successful, no matter what, you’re not going to let anything or anyone stop you. I work in network marketing, and the ‘income producing activities’ are not in themselves difficult, but it can be really hard to actually make myself do them. Every day. This is where a strong mindset, a huge WHY, and mental toughness comes in.

Money doesn’t make you happy, but it sure relieves a TON of stress and worry, so think of ways you can get in front of more people, educate your customers, train your builders, and attract more energy (money) to yourself.

You may want to check out the book Happy Money (Increase the Flow of Money with a Simple 2-Step Formula)… interesting way to look at making and attracting money into your life and business.

Tiffany Peterson says: “Serve more to Sell more.” So true! So how can you do more of what you do for more people?

Consider: People will do business and refer business to people they know, like and trust.

So the question is: Do you make it easy for people to know, like and trust you?

Please post what you do, or your ideas, that make it easy for business to come your way.

 


Grapefruit: So good for you!

 

GRAPEFRUIT-PINK-2-1024x822

Grapefruit is a favorite citrus fruit for so many reasons: It tastes naturally sweet, fresh and is delicious, plus it can help support cardiovascular health, can lower triglycerides, and has a powerful nutrient combination of antioxidants, potassium, lycopene (in the pink or red varieties), vitamin A & C (huge amounts), choline, plus helps support your liver in flushing out toxins, AND you get 3.7 grams of fiber in 1 cup of fruit. Wow!

I love fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and a little gin or vodka over ice for a refreshing weekend cocktail. OK, so the juice tastes great but doesn’t quite have all the nutrition of eating the whole fruit… you get the picture.

So what about grapefruit essential oil? Is it as good for you as the fruit?

Great questions! The essential oil is made by cold pressing the rind only, so there is no fruit or fruit juice in the essential oil. For those who have been told not to eat grapefruit due to possible interaction with medications, using the essential oil is different. Please do your own research on this.

The top properties of dōTERRA Grapefruit (Citrus X Paradisi) are: diuretic, antioxidant, antiseptic, astringent, purifier and expectorant. This oil when used internally (read the label for internal use) include helping with hormone balance, weight management, sugar cravings, detox, lymphatic system and kidney support, adrenal and gallbladder support, hangovers (nice!), and jet lag.

Emotionally grapefruit EO helps you connect with and honor your physical body, and helps those trapped in body shame, food obsession, eating issues and a distorted self-image. It promotes respect for your physical needs, body acceptance and a healthy relationship with food.

I hope this has been helpful information… please PM me if you want to learn more.

 


My Top 10 Daily Essential Oils, I mean 11

Here’s my daily top 10 oil picks, how I use them, and how they can help you feel amazing and get things done:

IMG_2979

Frankincense: This is my number 1 go to oil for just about everything, as it’s great for brain balance, focus, sad feelings, inflammation, immune system and cellular health, wound repair, letting go of negative vibrations, and helps you see the ‘truth’ in life. It’s like the Swiss Army Knife of oils. I use 2 drops under my tongue every morning. If you can only have 1 oil, this is it.

InTune (Focus blend): Helps keep you focused on the task at hand, and helps with increased concentration and attention to detail, mental clarity, reduces stress and alleviates nervous and anxious feelings. This blend includes Frankincense, Lime, Patchouli, Roman Chamomile, Sandalwood and Ylang Ylang.

Peppermint: Gives an instant energy lift, is cooling, helps relieve head and neck tension, provides digestive relief (1 drop is equal to 28 cups of Peppermint tea), creates emotional distance during heated discussions, and helps with bad breath. Also for those experiencing ‘hot flashes’, mix 8-10 drops of Peppermint and filtered water in a small 4 ounce glass spray bottle for an instant cooling spray. Apply to the back of your neck, temples or wherever you need to cool down. Also great for sunburn relief.

DigestZen: As the name implies, it’s used for digestive relief, gas, bloating, nausea, motion sickness during travel, sinus issues, emotional indigestion, and helps when you’ve ‘taken on too much’. This is a blend of Anise, Caraway, Coriander, Fennel, Ginger, Peppermint and Tarragon oils. Use a drop under your tongue, in a shot of water, or rub it right where you need it on your stomach or throat.

Balance (Grounding blend): Helps you feel balanced, calm, centered and grounded, balances energy, dispels anger and rage, relieves stress and anxious feelings. I use this every day, a drop on the bottoms of my feet, helps me stay grounded and focused. This blend includes Blue Chamomile, Blue Tansy, Frankincense, Ho Wood and Spruce. Very woodsy smelling.

Citrus Bliss (Invigorating blend): Do you work in an office full of grumpy, whiny people? Or live in a house with grumpy, whiny kids (or adults)? Diffuse this blend and change the mood of your co-workers, family and friends without them knowing! This blend fosters creativity, relieves stress, is uplifting and smells amazing! This is a blend of seven different citrus oils and vanilla: Bergamot, Clementine, Grapefruit, Lemon, Mandarin, Tangerine and Wild Orange.

Serenity (Calming blend): Can’t we all just get along? This blend is great for promoting serene feelings of acceptance, helping reduce criticism, blame and judgement, reduces anxious feelings and resentment towards others. Finally! And Serenity will help you fall asleep at night, and it’s great to calm the overactive or cranky kids in your life, the little or big ones. Ha! 1-2 drops on the bottoms of their feet, back of the neck, on temples, and diffuse it. This blend includes Lavender, Sweet Marjoram, Roman Chamomile, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Ylang Ylang and vanilla.

Passion (Inspiring blend): Do you feel like you’ve lost your mojo? This blend can help you get it back, and find your inner passion for life, help you love your work, get inspired, clear mental fog, discover clarity of purpose, and encourages openness to new experiences. One of my faves! In this one there is Cardamom, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Sandalwood and Jasmine. Also helps in the bedroom… just saying.

Motivate (Encouraging blend): Are you mentally exhausted and feel like you’re stuck? This is the one for you! This blend helps fight mental fatigue and exhaustion, gives encouragement and confidence, and helps you get things done. This is a blend of Basil, Clementine, Coriander, Melissa, Peppermint and Rosemary. Also one of my faves, and I put a drop or 2 behind my ears, and the energy boost is amazing… my house gets clean and my work gets done.

OnGuard (Protective blend): Great for boosting your immune system, has anti-bacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties, kills germs, kills airborne pathogens when diffused, reduces symptoms and duration of seasonal bugs, keeps you and your staff healthier with less days out of the office. This is a blend of Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus, Rosemary and Wild Orange oils, warm, spicy and very powerful.

BONUS: ClaryCalm (Monthly Blend for Women): OK, ladies, this is the jam for balancing your hormones, and I don’t care how old you are, or how many parts you have left, if you know what I mean. I use this roll-on blend morning and night, lower abdomen, and sometimes around my ankles, to help me stay sane and not lose my mind. It also helps balance mood swings, PMS-type crankiness and cramps, I think you get the picture.

When using essential oils, quality matters. Essential oils are powerful aromatic compounds that act like messengers throughout your body.

dōTERRA Essential Oils can safely be used aromatically by being diffused or inhaled directly from the bottle, topically (some must be diluted with a carrier oil), and most can be used internally, as these pure, therapeutic grade essential oils are basically considered to be food (read the label).

When using oils, a drop is a ‘dose’, and less is more, so start with a very small amount. Listen to your body, and I encourage everyone to do their own research.

One more super cool thing about these oils: no negative side effects!

There are many other essential oils that are helpful for all different physical and emotional issues, and we’ve just scratched the surface here. But these 11 oils are a great start for everyday oil users who are looking for a more natural way to enhance their everyday work and life experience.
