I’m Not Sure How I Got Here!

I’m Not Sure How I Got Here!

This past weekend was my birthday and I turned 70 years old. I’m not sure how I got to this age—one minute it seems like I was 40 and in a blink of the eye, here I am 70!

When I awakened on my birthday morning, I just stayed in bed and thought on my life-the ups the downs; the grief, the divorce, wonderful grandchildren, too many operations, too much pain, incredible joy and a life filled with amazing friends, etc. And, what I concluded is that I’m young at heart and now my body feels that way too!

About three years ago, you would have found a much different person! I was exhausted all the time, in constant pain and wondering if I would or could ever feel like my vibrant self again?

What changed? A dear friend of mine introduced me to the Life Long Vitality Supplements of DoTerra Essential Oils-ten days later (not usually do they work that fast, but they work!) I was getting out of bed early, filled with energy, in less pain and a myriad of other great feelings. The supplements are a no-brainer—you get to try them for 30 days, if you see no results, you can send them back to DoTerra for a full refund!

So, the supplements got me started, but I knew I wanted to try all their other products. I love DoTerra Essential Oils and have used them for pain, balance, alertness, emotional help,clean clothes, great hair, beautiful skin and clean bathrooms, dishes, counters and on and on….

But my favorite thing is their purity! Do you know that organic is required to be only 80% organic-that leaves 20% of the product that is not. Think about this—if I handed you a 100% pure glass of water and put 1 drop of arsenic in the water making it 99%pure—would you drink it? Absolutely not!! Well, with DoTerra you don’t have to worry—they’re products are 100% pure!

Take a moment and think about what you want? The products that you buy at the grocery store, makeup store or hair salon—they are not 100% pure and can contain very harmful chemicals and still be called ‘organic!’

I want only one thing and that’s to make you and your family healthier. We have so many toxins in our lives; we need to cut them out, if not for you, for your children’s sake.

We have oils and products that can change your life and that of your family. Whether you need emotional support, non-toxic support, pain and health support, consumable support-DoTerra is there for you!

I would not only like to help you, but also get to know you so that I can make effective recommendations for you and yours. Please feel free to contact me even if you wish to just talk? There is absolutely no pressure to buy, but only a desire to help! Thank you.



I like February for so many reasons: Valentine’s Day, my birthday, my daughter’s birthday, and strawberries. Although February is the shortest month of the year, many people feel like it’s the longest due to the cold gray weather, but it doesn’t bother me because I love snow and the cold weather.

Another thing I think about in February is heart health and just how DoTerra Essential Oils, a pure and natural way to take care of that essential organ, including healthy eating and exercise. I myself have high blood pressure and am trying to wean myself off medication by using the oils. Of course, I’m not going to just stop medication, but if I get it low enough, I will discuss with my cardiologist, as we all should!

How am I going about this? First, I’m using Life Long Vitality, which is DoTerra’s wonderful supplements that contains antioxidants, magnesium and Omega 3 fatty acid just to mention a few. All of these are important for heart health.

Two of my favorite oils are relatively new to DoTerraYarrow Pom and Copaiba! Yarrow Pom is a blend of Yarrow Essential Oil and cold-pressed Pomegranate seed oil. This oil promotes cellular, immune and nervous system health along with metabolic support and is calming to the mind and body. You can put a couple of drops under your tongue, put a few drops in a Veggie capsule and swallow, rub it on your skin, or diffuse.

Copaiba oil also supports cardiovascular health and works with the endo-cannabinoid system (CB-1 and CB-2 receptors.) It is used the same way as Yarrow Pom.

A few other oils that are great for heart health are Marjoram because it widens the vessels and decreases blood pressure. Green Mandarin is very calming to the nervous system and can be used under the tongue or diffused.

Finally, a wonderful blend for cardiovascular health is 1-drop lavender, 1-drop ylang ylang and 1-drop bergamot. You can diffuse, take in a Veggie capsule or rub on skin!

When applying these oils to the skin, there are a number of locations—on the carotid arteries, heart, feet, under the left ring finger, above the elbow and the ring toe of the left foot.

So, when you think of February, don’t just think about Valentine’s day and cold weather, think of that wonderful muscle called the heart and learn to take care of it!

My passion in life is to help others increase their overall health and that’s why I love DoTerra. The oils and the products are certified pure therapeutic grade and non-toxic! I would love to help you and your family, so let’s have a chat about how the oils can help you. (Note: contact info below!)

By the way, have a beautiful Valentine’s Day! Enjoy!
