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 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?

PM me if you’re open to learning more.

Peach Festival 2016

 

I will be here in Marysville, CA this weekend, sharing the amazing ‘gifts of the Earth’ from dōTERRA Essential Oils.

Stop by for your personal oil experience, and see how using a more natural approach to healthcare and wellness can benefit you and your family.

See you there!


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.
