But, I Have to Work!!!!

But, I Have to Work!!!!

I know that summer is here and in the past I’ve explored different DoTERRA products that will work for you when you are enjoying the summer days. But, I don’t know about you, but I have to work!!

Yes, I sit in my office longingly looking outside and wishing I was out there and not in here. It’s such a beautiful time of year and I must admit that I’m luckier than most—I work from home and I can set my own schedule. But, I still have to work!

What I find helps me to ease the pain of being stuck at my desk are wonderful diffuser blends that can uplift my spirits and change my mood. I wanted to share a few with you that I hope will not only make you focus, but also will make you feel better.

I find I use all of these at different times during the week. Mondays are great for The Energizing Blend or The Citrus Spice Blend. When you have a deadline, The Stress Less Blend is a must. Other times during the week, Springtime Bliss Blend and The Refreshing Blend are great to use.

However, use whatever you wish and experiment with the oils to find a blend that resonates with your mood. There are always the emotional oils such as Cheer, Motivate, and Passion, which are wonderful to rub on or diffuse.

Finally, how do you start your morning? I like to get my mind working and balance myself. I always rub Balance Oil on my feet, put a drop of Frankincense on my thumb and apply to the soft palate of your mouth (this goes right through the blood-brain barrier and helps you focus). I also take a couple drops of Copaiba by mouth, which is a great mood elevator.

I hope these ideas help with the ‘it’s summer, but I still have to work syndrome’ that almost all of us suffer through at one time or another. Enjoy and make the most of yours and your family’s summer days!

Continue to have a great summer!

“Changing health and wellness one person at a time!”

OMG, Summer is Here!!!

OMG, Summer is Here!!!

Summer has arrived full blast across the country this week! Almost everyone is experiencing 90-degree weather and sweating up a storm. I’m so lucky living in Denver because there is little humidity, but coming from the Washington, DC area—I know humidity and believe me I don’t miss it!

I have been thinking about summer and have a little education about some doTERRA Essential Oils and products that can make your summer easier so that you appreciate the season!

First, there’s a little warning. I don’t know about you, but I love the citrus oils (lemon, lime, tangerine, green mandarin, grapefruit, etc.) and they just remind me of summer and freshness. But, they are sun sensitive. DO NOT PUT ON BODY AND GO OUT IN THE SUN! You can develop redness and sometimes a rash. Save these for diffusing in your home or office and cooking, and not for going out!

There are a number of products that I don’t leave the house without taking before or during my outdoor excursions.

I have some seasonal allergies and take a TriEase capsule every morning and have gotten rid of the leaky nose, sneezing and post-nasal drip.

 

I always put these in my bag when going to the pool, beach or on a picnic—TerraShield, Peppermint and OnGuard Sanitizing Mist. TerraShield is my go-to spray for bugs and mosquitos, especially where those bugs carry diseases.

 

Now if you are really hot, I always carry Peppermint. I rub it on my neck and the cooling is amazing! I’ve even put it on a woman in my class who was having a hot flash and she had instantaneous relief. I love it!!!

 

Between eating, rubbing suntan lotion on, putting our hands on chairs, towels, and etc.- I love to use OnGuard Hand Sanitizing Mist on my grandchildren and myself. Kids are always getting dirty (which I think is great) but you don’t want them eating with filthy hands. Spray a little OnGuard on and they are instantly clean and ready to eat.

These are just a few summertime aids that are easy to apply and make your hot days a little brighter. I want everyone to enjoy his or her summer and just have plain FUN, so why not make it easier? And, one last thing—don’t forget to cover yourself with sunblock and all the children—it’s a must! Do you know that one bad sunburn as a child can lead to skin cancer? So make sure you apply every couple of hours!

If you have any questions or would like to hear more about these products, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I am always available for questions and education.

Have a great summer!
