You had me at Frankincense!

Frankincense

People always ask me how I got into using dōTERRA Essential Oils, and it all started with #frankincense oil.

About 4 years ago my dad experienced a sudden brain incident, and after spending a few days in the hospital, what the doctors offered him was 4 prescriptions and a walker, and basically told him to get used to his new life.

SORRY, BUT THIS WAS NOT ACCEPTABLE!

After doing extensive research, my sister found out about the power of essential oils, specifically frankincense, as it is super good for #inflammation and #brain support, function and balance. It also helps manage depressed feelings, sadness and despair, which are common for people recovering from such things.

She got my dad his own bottle of dōTERRA Frankincense oil, and he applied a drop to his temples, behind his ears, and on the back of his neck several times a day. He called it his ‘Frankenstein’ oil.

After about 2-3 weeks he had such dramatic improvement and recovery, I had to learn what this stuff was all about. That started my journey, as I was looking for a more natural way to manage my moods, specifically ‘nervous and anxious feelings’. I had taken prescribed medication for several years, but I knew it was not a long term solution, plus it made me feel like a zombie when I was taking the pills.

My first 2 oils were #Balance Grounding Blend and #Serenity Calming Blend, and after a few days, I was literally a different person: much happier, nicer and calmer, plus I smelled great!

I was hooked! I got obsessed about learning what else these oils could do, and I had to have them all! My friends starting asking questions, and I started researching and sharing the oils with them.

I’m so grateful to have found these oils, and I can’t imagine life without them. Natural solutions are what I’m all about now.

Aren’t you just a little bit curious about what they can do for you?

Need a little focus? Try this!

This is one of my favorite blends for staying on task and getting things done. It helps with focus, concentration, nervousness and anxious feelings, mental clarity, and is very calming and grounding.

InTune comes in a 10 ml roller bottle, and I roll it on starting from my chest, down to my belly button and back up again, then I rub it in. You have a ton of serotonin receptors in this area, and their job in part contributes to feelings of happiness and self-esteem. I physically feel a shift in my energy when I apply oils here. I also use InTune on my temples, back of my neck and across my forehead.

The main oils in this blend include Patchouli, Frankincense, Lime, Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood and Roman Chamomile. The scent is earthy and uplifting.

Retail price: $46 / Wholesale price: $34.50. To order yours: Get it here!

Permission for Success Granted!

purple-mountain-magesties

This was the message from Tiffany Peterson‘s FB Live training this morning. You don’t need anyone’s permission or approval to be successful, or to create the lifestyle and business you love.

She was coaching us on playing small in our business, and what could potentially be holding us back.

Here’s a big one:

Fear of criticism or disapproval from friends or family, or even from people we don’t know. Really? Yes! And so what! Not everyone is going to like you, and that’s fine. Don’t take it personally, especially from someone who is not supporting you and your family, or paying your bills. Their opinion does not matter. And what others think of you is none of your business.

Once you can shine a light on what is subconsciously holding you back, you can take action to work through, around or over it.

Have your own back… and take the power back from people who may be criticising or discouraging you not to move ahead. You don’t need their approval. You’re not a kid anymore, you’re an adult, and you don’t answer to anyone other than yourself.

Stop being stingy with your gifts! Share what you got with everyone! You are an intelligent, successful, amazing and beautiful person, and don’t allow anyone to tell you differently. Even if you never heard these words from parents, family, teachers or others, it doesn’t mean they are not true.

Many of us are still operating from old negative thoughts or ‘tapes’ that have been playing in our heads since we were kids. What your parents said and how they treated you sticks in your brain, and can shape how we view ourselves and our abilities as adults. I’ve been working through some of this stuff in the last couple of days, specifically about my mother, (sorry, I said it), and I started doing the emotional work to get unstuck.

It’s not easy, and it involves tears, but I can honestly say that I feel like an emotional burden has been lifted, a sort of shift in my feelings, and I’m seeing myself now through a different lens, one that makes me really grateful and happy-ish.

Here’s the book I’m reading now: The Power Is Within You, by Louise Hay. Super powerful and it will help you on your emotional healing journey. I love that what I do is help people know that they can be successful, and they can do whatever they decide to do.


Top 10 Essential Oils for Entrepreneurs

oils-for-entrepreneurs

Being self-employed is a tough but rewarding gig, and anything that makes it easier to be present, focused, healthy and productive, I’m all over it. I’ve been successfully self-employed for over 20 years, and I love the benefits I get from using the oils. I’ve used dōTERRA oils for almost 4 years, and they are part of my daily routine. Not sure what I did before discovering these gems…

Here’s my top oil picks, and how they can help you and your team at work:

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.

OnGuard (Protective blend): Great for boosting your immune system, has anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal 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.

InTune (Focus blend): Helps keep you focused on the task at hand, 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, digestive relief, creates emotional distance during heated discussions, and helps with bad breath.

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.

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 have an office full of grumpy, whiny people? Diffuse this blend and change the mood of your co-workers 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! This blend includes Lavender, Sweet Marjoram, Roman Chamomile, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Ylang Ylang and vanilla.

Passion (Inspiring blend): 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.

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.

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 10 oils are a great start for busy entrepreneurs who are looking for a more natural way to enhance their every day work experience.

Compelling & provocative… Wow!

Learn why essential oils are so valuable and powerful!

Modern science supports what natural health practitioners have known for centuries… and now, essential oils are finally getting the attention they deserve. dōTERRA Essential Oils came into my life for a reason, and I’m so grateful that I know about these amazing ‘gifts of the Earth’. 

I first learned about essential oils after my dad had a stroke. He started using Frankincense oil, changed his diet, made other lifestyle changes, and started feeling better. After seeing how powerful the oils were, I decided that I needed to see what else they could do. I was looking for a more natural way to manage my anxious feelings and fear. I found a grounding blend (Balance) and a calming blend (Serenity) that worked great, and now I’ve learned how to use the oils to keep me calm and sane. 

Again, so grateful and blessed. If you are new to oils, please watch this movie trailer and catch a glimpse of what the movie is about… I think you’ll like it.
