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:


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 occasional headaches and pain, 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 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, stress and anxiety relief. 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.

You don’t eat meat? Correct!

You only eat plants?

Funny how people react when you tell them you don’t eat meat… like it’s the strangest thing they’ve ever heard. I was talking with a business friend last week, explaining to her that I’m basically vegan, and she said she couldn’t imagine not eating meat. Really? Why not?

There’s so much recent information on how ‘not good for you’ meat is, how damaging meat production is to the environment, and it goes without saying how awful it is for the animals involved, so my question is really this: Why would you choose to eat meat when there are so many other amazing foods to eat?

I recently watched the movie ‘What the Health‘, and was reminded again why I stopped eating meat several years ago. I had kinda slipped back into some old habits in the last couple of years, mainly for convenience, and this movie was the wake up call I needed to get back on track.

Moving forward, I will be posting information to help you make gradual changes to your food choices, helping you transition to a plant-based food plan. If reducing meat and animal products in your diet is one of your goals, I will help you with real world information, things you can implement right away.

I’m not a diet coach, or a doctor, but I do care about the food I stick in my mouth. I’m not perfect by any means, but I’m doing my best to make better choices on a daily basis, and I’m feeling better and losing weight.

I will say that for me cheese and butter are the hardest things to give up on a vegan diet… I don’t even miss the meat, seriously. I’ve lost my taste for it. But I’m always on the lookout for good non-animal substitutes, and I will post about the ones I really like.

Hope this info is helpful to you too!

12 Steps to Network Marketing Success

Success concept.

I’ve been building an MLM business and team for almost 3.5 years, and here is a list of 12 things that have helped me be successful in an MLM. For the record, I’m with dōTERRA.

  1. Find an MLM company whose products you LOVE, use and recommend, even if there was no business opportunity attached.
  2. Become a ‘Product of the Product’, which means you’re using the products and can share and explain them to anyone who asks.
  3. Find an MLM that has consumable products, where people need to order often, like monthly, as this is how you build long-term residual income.
  4. Research the integrity of the company, and only go with a company that has a good reputation, has sustainable practices, and gives back to the community.
  5. Understand the compensation plan. Make sure you understand the types of plans out there: Party plan, Unilevel, etc… dōTERRA is a Unilevel plan with bonuses paid weekly and monthly, depending on your activity, and how much effort you put into it. dōTERRA’s Unilevel plan pays a higher percentage as you build down, and as you help your downline be successful.
  6. Ongoing personal development is huge, so you need to be willing to read, attend webinars and seminars to constantly improve and uplevel your skills as a salesperson and ultimately as a leader.
  7. Attend the annual convention and other corporate events with your people. No excuses, make sure you’re there.
  8. This is a numbers game, so figure out a way to always be meeting new people, whether it’s through events, classes you teach, 1:1s, online groups, Facebook, a blog, just do whatever works for you. And be consistent. Have ‘Income Producing Activities’ on your calendar every day and do them!
  9. The key to success is deciding that you’re going to be successful, no matter what. It’s all in your mindset, and what you focus on. If you believe you will be successful, do the work and surround yourself with positive, self-motivated people, you will be successful. It takes time, but it’s totally worth it.
  10. Don’t compare yourself to anyone except who you were yesterday. Enjoy the journey and give yourself permission to succeed on your timetable. We all have family and other obligations, and maybe you are still working a full-time job, but these are not excuses. If you really want it, you will find a way to carve out the time you need to build your business.
  11. Don’t let the negative social stigma of being part of an MLM stop you from reaching your goals and dreams. You will need to endure some negative criticism from well-meaning but ignorant people, so toughen up. Legitimate MLMs are a fantastic way to make as much money as you want. Do not listen to anyone who is not paying your bills, as they don’t get a say in how you choose to earn money and support your family.
  12. Never give up! That’s really the only way you can fail in an MLM is to quit. Reject mediocrity and go for it!

I consider myself successful, as I’ve replaced my income from my prior work in the real estate industry, and I’m just getting started. Being successful in this business requires mental and emotional toughness, and willingness to learn and grow.

Would I want to go back to what I was doing before? Never! Do I have days that are tough when I want to quit? Of course. This is like any other job, except I get to decide when and where I work, how much I work, and how much I want to get paid, so there’s no going back for me. I’m hooked!

In the words of Eric Worre, we really do have a better way!

I couldn’t help but overhear…

coffee heart breakfast






your conversation this morning over breakfast. You were telling your friend how you’re basically being forced to take specific medications to keep your health and life insurance. You have to stay on the medication to satisfy their rules, even though the medication isn’t really working or making a difference in your ‘numbers’. And you don’t feel good when you’re taking it.

I need to tell you that you have a choice, you don’t have to play their game. I got out my business card, and was thinking about how I could casually approach you, and let you know the truth.

The truth is ‘they’ know that most of what you’re prescribed is little more than a temporary bandaid at best. It doesn’t fix or address the root cause, it’s just an attempt to alleviate discomfort. And it hurts many people in the process. Don’t get me wrong, some of it is absolutely necessary, but much of it is not. It does, however, support a multi-billion dollar industry.

I had to stop myself from going to your table and telling you what I know, and what I’ve experienced with pure essential oils: How I now use essential oils instead of pills when I’m feeling anxious, scared or overwhelmed. How I get a good night’s sleep and wake up feeling rested. How I feel calm, grounded and at peace, and how I can raise my mood whenever I feel the need. How I balance my hormones naturally…

I didn’t want to interrupt.

I’m sorry, my friend, that I didn’t tell you when I had the chance. I have something of great value that I want and need to share with you, and I promise I will do better next time. I won’t keep it to myself.

I hope you see this message and reach out to me… I’m here for you. You have a choice, and I’d love to share it with you.
