DIY deodorant

Just how amazing is this 30ml roller filled with DIY deodorant!? It is common knowledge that traditional deodorant contains some really nasty things. I have been on the hunt for a good recipe for DIY deodorant using essential oils for quite some time and I think I hit the jackpot!

Here is my recipe for a jumbo 30ml roller:

  • 20 drops lemon
  • 20 drops melaleuca
  • 20 drops lemongrass
  • 10 drops patchouli
  • 10 drops Whisper blend

I am sure you can substitute other oils of your preference but the lemon, lemongrass and melaleuca are key to keeping the stink away.

Quality versus Quantity

I know that when I first started using EO I was super heavy handed, thinking that if this works so good then even more drops would work better. NOT TRUE.

When you use quality essential oils (uhh..you all know my preferred brand), you literally can use just a drop or two.

I have heard from people who have used store bought oils (I did too for YEARS), and even other popular brands, and didn’t have the results they were hoping for.

If you want to try doTERRA and see if you get the results you want, just shoot me a message and I can get you some samples.

Quality versus quantity, my friends.

Meditation and Essential Oils

Feeling stressed and overwhelmed? Meditation can calm the body, mind, and spirit. It can help us to connect more deeply with the worlds around and within us. It has been shown to have physical health benefits including lower heart rate and lower levels of stress. But sometimes, life’s distractions and our busy thoughts can make a meditation session challenging.

I love that essential oils may provide assistance with meditation. I know for me, I am continuing to practice stilling my mind, observing my breath and just learning to BE.

Aroma and fragrances have been an important part of rituals and meditations for ages in many cultures around the world.  In our super fast-paced and distracting world, sometimes we can use all the help we can get.

To use essential oils while meditating, there are several options: You can apply directly to the body–the space between your eye brows known as the third eye is a great option or your heart. You can also create a mist by putting oils and water into a small spray bottle  and spray the fragrance in the air, or you can use a diffuser. I really enjoy applying oils.

Here are my top 5 essential oils for meditation.

1. Frankincense: A holy fragrance if there ever was one, it’s believed to help you increase your faith and connection with spirit.

2. Myrrh: One of the highest sesquiterpene contents in an essential oil, myrrh directly stimulates the hypothalamus, pituitary and amygdalin glands to help reduce stress and bring focus. It’s uplifting scent can assist in deep spiritual “opening” while bringing calm and tranquility.

3. Cedarwood: Focus inward a bit more clearly with the help of cedarwood. It can also help to illuminate your need for meditation and return you to your spiritual path when obstacles have made it difficult.

4. Sandalwood: This oil is very helpful in healing, particularly emotional/spiritual wounds. It opens the heart and helps to promote trust.

5. Neroli: The potent floral fragrance of neroli can help you to be more self-accepting, face your fears and accept the work you need to do for yourself. It can also inspire creativity, particularly as it pertains to a spiritual practice.

The Brain and Essential Oils

Are you curious how oils work in the brain?

The brain has a blood brain barrier that is the filtering mechanism between that and circulating blood. The barrier prevents substances from reaching the brain tissue and causing damage. The ability to cross the blood brain barrier is imperative for treatment of brain related issues.

Essential oils have chemical constituents call sesquiterpenes which are known to be able to go beyond the blood-brain barrier. Sesquiterpenes can directly interact with brain cells and impact the brain therapeutically. They are also known to interact with neurotransmitter receptors, especially dopamine–the reward center and serotonin–the mood regulator.

Some oils high in sesquiterpenes are frankincense, copiaba, patchouli, cedarwood, and sandalwood. Sesquiterpenes are antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, and they deliver oxygen rich molecules to the brain cells!

Chakras, Gemstones and Essential Oils

I have been fascinated by crystals and gemstones for years and use them in my daily practices.  I love learning about them and as a result I love sharing!

Essential oils are another tool that I use everyday and love talking about.

Bringing crystals and essential oils together makes my heart swell with goodness. I offer a free online course that takes you through learning what a chakra is, how each one operates in the physical and emotional bodies, what a crystal/gemstone is, what an essential oil is and how together they interact and support our body.

You can find the course here Chakras, Gemstones and Essential Oils

Aren’t these gorgeous?

Happy Monday Everyone!

I love the end of one month because the planning for the next starts to happen.  It is such an exciting time for me and I am super happy about what I have in store for February! In my planning, I also updated my pages here so check them out when you have time.

As you know, I am passionate about wellness and living a life of intention.  My full time job purpose is sharing Yoga with people living with brain injuries and other disabilities.  I am blessed to have found my soul calling and love each day I get to show up.  When I am not doing this, I am sharing my other passion and that is offering tools for people to live a healthy and full life.

As I sat in my morning ritual time that includes coffee, journaling, reading and reflecting, I was consumed with gratitude.  My life truly is blessed and I feel so complete.

Thank you for being part of my fullness and my bounty of joy. Have a blessed week!

Immune Support

I recently traveled to Florida in the height of flu season. I am a bit of a germ freak anyway, but the thought of being on an airplane with all those potentially sick people FREAKED me out. About a week prior to flying, I started to amp up my use of On Guard. I use this oil everyday anyway because my job requires me to be around MANY people who are at risk for germs—and I can happily say, I have not been sick in three years! I believe that my consistent use of On Guard has been a huge role in that. There are so many great On Guard Products to choose from.
Primary Benefits
🌿Supports healthy immune and respiratory function
🌿Protects against environmental threats
🌿Supports the body’s natural antioxidant defenses
🌿Promotes healthy circulation
🌿Energizing and uplifting aroma
💧Wild Orange Peel, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Leaf, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Leaf, and Rosemary Leaf/Flower essential oils.
My favorites:
💧On Guard essential oil (topically and diffusing)
💧beadlets (beadlets are small beads that contain 1/4 drop of oil–great for freshening the breath and on the go immune support)
💧throat lozenges
💧softgels (these contain OG plus oregano and melissa which are powerhouse immunity oils–only take these at onset or while sick or for a boost of prevention, such as flying)
💧hand spray.
As one of doTERRA’s best-selling blends, doTERRA On Guard protects against environmental and seasonal threats with essential oils known for their positive effects on the immune system when ingested.
doTERRA On Guard can be taken internally on a daily basis to maintain healthy immune function and support healthy cardiovascular function. It can also be used on surfaces throughout the home as a non-toxic cleaner. When diffused, doTERRA On Guard helps purify the air, and can be very energizing and uplifting.
