I Didn’t Get It!

I Didn’t Get It!

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!

Little Things To Let Go Of!

Little Things To Let Go Of!

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 Just Can’t Get It Out!

I Just Can’t Get It Out!

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!

It’s Not Hogwash or Woo-Woo!

It’s Not Hogwash or Woo-Woo!

Welcome to my new website, I am so thrilled to have you here! I can’t wait to share doTERRA with you and your friends. This Company has changed my life and helped me to heal my body. I’m a firm believer that having a healthy body makes your life even more awesome!

Why the title? So many people that I have met approach doTERRA with the idea that Essential Oils are strange and doubt what they can do to help the body heal. I’m here to say that they are an amazing addition to your life and your health!

DoTERRA oils are harvested from plants, flowers, bark, etc. This was our past, our ancestors healed each other with nature and all that it could do to! Then, the pharmaceutical companies arrived and decided to use chemicals that replicated the old ways. The problem is that in many cases drugs have been overused and are not effective, in fact, we have become resistant to them and Doctor’s don’t know where to turn to heal their patients. In addition, the pharmaceutical companies control the price of their drugs. There are so many people that can’t afford their life-saving drugs and have to make a choice between medicine and either rent or food. DoTERRA oils are an inexpensive alternative because, even though some of the oils are expensive, they contain 250 drops and you only uses a drop or two.

DoTERRA oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) oils. What does that mean for you? After the crops are harvested, they are distilled to separate the oil from the plant. That oil is then sent to 3 to 5 blind testers, and, if any one of those finds an impurity, the entire batch is thrown out! DoTERRA would rather not offer an oil than have an impurity! This is a promise to you and all their members.

My goal with this Blog is to educate you and others. I hope to write at least two blogs a month, if not more, and allow you to make up your own mind. I welcome any questions that you might have and will do my best to answer them or find the answer if I don’t know. I want to erase that idea that doTERRA Essential oils are hogwash or woo-woo, and instead teach you that you have control over your body, your health and that of your family’s.

Oh My Aching Back, Hips, Knees…..

Oh My Aching Back, Hips, Knees…..

Today I want to talk to you about my portable massage therapist that relieves all my aches and pains and is always available day or night—Deep Blue Essential Oil and Rub!

I am a person, before I learned better and due to stress, had multiple operations in the early 2000’s. I’ve had 2 back fusions, 2 left foot fusions and a double knee replacement—all to relieve pain. But did they? Nope! So, although I have learned many different modalities to deal with the pain, I still have pain every day, but not as bad as it was! That was until I discovered Deep Blue Rub and Essential Oil!

I cannot begin to tell you how much better I feel every day! I rub it on my knees, my back and my left foot, not to mention the arthritis in my hands, and feel such relief. This practice is performed after my shower in the morning and right before I go to bed. I no longer awaken in the middle of the night with joints aching and unable to go back to sleep!

Let me tell you a little story. Every September, this will be my 17th year; I go to a ranch in Wyoming. I love it since it is rustic and the same friends come back every year—we’re a family and we start up just as we left off the previous year. This past year (September, 2016) I decided I would take 4 tubes of Deep Blue Rub to the ranch to give out as samples since I am a doTERRA Wellness Advocate.

At this great ranch, you get a cabin and a horse while you are there and everybody rides. (I can only do 1 short ride a day, but I love the nature in the mornings and am satisfied). Most of the guests ride twice a day. Well, since I’ve been going there for 17 years, we have aged and don’t feel as great as we used to 17 years ago after a ride. All I heard this year was, “Oh my back, oh my hips, oh my knees..” as they hobbled back to their cabins to get ready for lunch or dinner.

So, what did I do—I gave them a cup with a large sample of Deep Blue Rub! I told everyone to rub it where it hurts and to please report back to me! Well, they were amazed and started signing up for a doTERRA Wellnessaccount where they could order their own Deep Blue. The results were amazing and I was so pleased! It had been such a benefit to me that I wanted to share this little gold mine with others.

The best thing, since it is a doTERRA product, it is Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade—it is pure and has been tested by 3 blind companies to assure that it is! (If they find an impurity they throw the entire batch out). There is nothing harmful in Deep Blue—so much better than taking over-the-counter or prescription pain meds!

So, if you have annoying pain, why not give it a try? I am willing to talk to anyone who is interested—answering their questions or helping them decide. Just click HERE to contact me or comment below-and I’ll be there for you!

Take care and let’s banish pain!!

Oh! My Aching Gut!!!

Oh! My Aching Gut!!!

Today I want to invite you into the world of your gut! No matter who we are, we occasionally have difficulties with our stomach—we eat too much, we ate something that doesn’t agree with our stomach, stress increases digestive pain, and don’t forget flatulence, or gas as others call it!

I LOVE MY DIGESTZEN, a great little blend from doTERRA Essential Oils. I’ve used it quite a bit and even have a bottle near my bed in case I awaken with a stomachache. I take a few drops in my hand and rub on my stomach and go right back to sleep—stomach ache gone!!!

DigestZen is a blend of Anise, Peppermint, Ginger, Caraway, Coriander, Tarragon and Fennel essential oils.

It comes as an oil (great for rubbing on the stomach) or as DigestZen soft gels. Since my digestive problems are not daily, I use the oil, but I think if you have ongoing difficulties, I would suggest the use of the soft gels daily to keep everything under control and have the oil for a backup.

Other ways that you can reap the benefits of this wonderful little oil is to rub it on your feet—it will find its way to your gut; or to add a few drops to your water—it’s refreshing and continually safe guards your gut as you drink it. Many people say that it really cuts down on gas in their system (which we all know can be a problem just when you don’t need it) have noted drinking it has been a great way to stop the worry.

I carry a small bottle of DigestZen in my purse especially when I am going out to eat. Even though we think we know what we’re getting in a meal, often times in restaurants there might be additions that we’re unaware of that cause distress.

And last, but not least, it is also helpful for heartburn, nausea and sinusitis. No wonder it’s one of doTERRA’s best sellers because digestive problems are so prevalent in our world mainly due to the additives in our food and stress in our days.

I highly recommend DigestZen and if you want to know more, please don’t hesitate to contact me to talk about this wonderful little oil.

Thank you,
