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 DoTerra—Yarrow 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!

“Changing health and wellness one person at a time!”
Ahhh…the goals we promise ourselves on the January 1st! We want to get healthy, lose weight, reduce stress—you name it and we feel so good about our intentions and are convinced that we are unstoppable! So, how are those goals manifesting in the first month of the year?
I’ll tell you that I was very guilty of making a list of similar goals, mostly about my body, that I wanted to accomplish! I told everyone and felt incredibly motivated-I could do this!!
What I discovered was that I had set myself up for failure and the accompanying unworthy feelings that made me feel depressed, unworthy, and not good enough!
Do you want to know how I got myself out of this yearly predicament? It’s quite easy! Yes, I made a list of things for my body, life and business, but then I went farther.. I broke the goals into chewable bites, which were doable.
Let me give you an example. I had a goal to lose weight-35-40 pounds! No problem: lose 2-3 pounds a week, 8-12 pounds a month and should be done in 3-4 months. Well, that didn’t happen. I put so much pressure on myself that I actually gained weight from the stress and the cortisol that it produced. Flash! Change the way I went about this or I would keep gaining weight!
As many of you know and for those that don’t, I am a DoTerra Wellness Advocate who loves helping people and changing their health and wellness, but I often forgot about myself!
First, I decided I wasn’t going to get stressed out about losing weight! I was going to use the tools that DoTerra has provided. I did the Slim & Sassy program along with the Cleanse– l loved the program because it was sooooo easy. And, guess what? The weight disappeared and I’ve kept it off!
The same applies to the gym. Most people join a gym and are so psyched that they start working out an hour to an hour and a half everyday, even though they haven’t been to a gym in years. After about the second day, they’ve pulled something, hurt their back or find that they can’t move. Instead of backing off to maybe twice a week for a shorter amount of time, they quit!
Do you understand what I’m saying? We charge into things thinking the more time you put into something, we end up hurting ourselves and quit. Just break things down, take your time and you’ll meet your goals feeling great and with an amazing amount of energy. Remember the tortoise beat the hare? You can do the same with joy and health.
I love working with people to make their lives easier and healthier. I want to hear your issues and help you choose the DoTerra Essential Oils and Products that are just for you! Most people start with an oil or two, find that they love them and decide to purchase more. I never, ever put pressure on those I serve—it’s all about you and your needs!
If you want to accomplish your goals, please contact me for a free consultation where we can address what’s right for you!

“Changing health and wellness one person at a time!”
I don’t know if it’s happening where you live, but here in Colorado Springs there is this horrible chest cold going around and the cough lasts for a long time. I didn’t get it!
A few days before Christmas, I awakened with this weird feeling in my chest and my first thought was, “Oh, no, I’m getting sick with the cold right before Christmas!” My second thought was that I would be banned from Christmas at my daughter’s house to preserve the health of my grandchildren! Well, that just wasn’t going to happen!
I said to myself, “there’s no way that I’m going to get sick!” I turned to my own medicine cabinet: doTERRA Essential Oils. I had, of course, heard of the “Bomb” but decided to add to it. I filled a veggie capsule with 3 drops of Lemon, 3 drops of Melaleuca, 3 drops of Oregano, 3 drops OnGuard (the normal bomb), and then just to put more power into it-3 drops of Frankincense!
I took a capsule 4 times a day for 3 days and never got the cold!
As each day progressed, I could feel the germs being destroyed and was getting stronger and stronger. I was overjoyed and ready for the best Christmas with my 2-year-old and 5-year-old grandchildren!
I am always surprised at some people who pooh-pooh doTerra oils and their incredible power to heal the body. In the past that chest cold would have ended up as bronchitis and a trip to the doctor to get an antibiotic! (Bronchitis is my weakness). But, I had no need for any antibiotic or a trip to the doctor’s.
I would love to teach YOU about the amazing power of these Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade oils! There is finally a trend towards healthy alternatives for your life and that of your family’s. So, jump on the wellness train for the healthiest ride of your life!
What a funny title, but wait until you hear what I have to say! There are so many simple things that you can do to let go of the toxins in your home and make yours and your family’s lives so much healthier.
The first thing to do is to get a doTERRA diffuser, preferably one that lasts 8 hours. Yes, they might be a touch more expensive, but they last forever and you won’t find that with less expensive diffusers.
You’ve likely seen the commercials about candles, sprays and all those air fresheners- they’re all toxic to some extent. Why would you intentionally use those around your family?
With a diffuser, unlike a candle, spray or air freshener-you can have any scent you wish, any time you wish! Feeling stressed out-use a little lavender, when the cold and flu season comes-use OnGuard (the immune defender) and Breathe, want a pick-me-up, use a little Wild Orange and Peppermint, and the list goes on and on. It’s fun to be creative and make your home smell wonderful without being overwhelming!
I get such a kick out of friends, offices, etc. when I enter the room they say I smell so good. I know I’ve put one or two oils on, but I’m always diffusing, which I know surrounds me. No heavy perfume (another toxic element) where people want to leave the room!
As I mentioned earlier, I wouldn’t go through the fall and winter without diffusing OnGuard and Breathe in my bedroom at night. I add a touch of Serenity to help with sleep and I have the perfect mixture! I stay healthy and get the rest we all need.
I love the versatility of using the doTERRA diffusers. They truly are an inexpensive, non-toxic way to change the your home environment. I am more than willing to help you change your home, office or bedroom—it just takes a phone call. I would love to teach you about diffusers and different blends to fit YOUR needs.
I love to write and am always filled with ideas, but if you noticed you haven’t heard from me, the words just died. I’ve sat down numerous times at me computer hit the “Word” button and nothing….
And then it hit me! I have been so immersed in all the wrong things happening in my life (just normal life, but oh so many), that no wonder I couldn’t write—who wants to hear a sad song? I will tell you what changed—the doTERRA Emotional Oils!
I’ve been diffusing them and applying them for the last week or so and I feel so much better! I ended up relying on four of the six emotional oils—Motivate, Cheer, Forgive and Console! (The other two are Passion, which is the Inspiring Blend and Peace the Reassuring Blend)
Briefly, Motivate is the Encouraging Blend, Cheer is the Uplifting Blend, Forgive is the Renewing Blend, and Console is the Comforting Blend. Using these four oils had a tremendous effect on my emotional balance and gave me a sense of uplift, joy and understanding.
Let’s be honest, we all go through emotional times and sometimes get lost in what we feel is raining hardship and can’t figure a way out or up! That was me! Then I thought-why don’t I give the Emotional Oils a try and I was blown away!
Often we hear of all the oils and products of doTERRA but many people are unaware that doTERRA addresses our emotional balance. When we’re not balanced emotionally, we can often experience body pain, stress, lack of sleep and a feeling of just wanting to be alone. Get your emotions balanced and it changes not only your emotions, but also your entire body. My result has been the ability to write again and serve you with helpful information!

Thank you and warm wishes,
