🌱 glass cleaner — vinegar and lemon EO

🌱 goof off — lemon EO

🌱 facial toner — witch hazel, water, melaleuca, lavender, geranium

🌱 anti-aging serum — rose wood oil, frankincense, geranium, myrrh, rose, jasmine and neroli EO

🌱 dry shampoo — arrow root powder, dried cinnamon (bc I am a redhead), rosemary and melaleuca EO

🌱 between washing hair spritzer — water, rosemary, geranium, melaleuca, lavender and clary sage EO

🌱 bath bombs — baking soda, citric acid, Epsom and EO

🌱 pepto — peppermint and ginger EO

Toxin Free Living

Wellness Wednesday!

Have you ever thought about all the toxins you come into contact throughout a given day? And I don’t just mean physically. 😉

Over the last few years I have learned how to swap out natural things for the common and usually toxin filled things both in my household but also personal care. AND, I have created habits to get rid of emotional toxins, too.

Here is a sampling of what I have done:

🌼100% cleaning with oils and natural ingredients

🌼make my own body butter with shea & coconut oil

🌼a drop of lemon in my water everyday

🌼probiotics every day

🌼consume mostly organic foods

🌼twice yearly cleanse (more to come on that soon)

🌼wash my produce with lemon EO

🌼digestive enzymes

🌼diffusers in almost every room for clean air

🌼time in nature to re-fuel and connect

🌼wish angry drivers peace while driving

🌼limit screen time (what a toxic overload!)

🌼minimal TV, and never crime or drama

🌼practice discernment and have boundaries

🌼only headlines of news to stay informed

🌼give others the benefit of the doubt

🌼love as much as I can

Do you have toxins in your life? What can you do to eliminate them?

Cedarwood

Did you know that dōTERRA Cedarwood is a great oil for promoting relaxation? With properties that help to soothe the mind and body, the warm, woody scent of Cedarwood essential oil can create a relaxing environment when used topically or aromatically.

After a long day, diffuse to create a calming environment or apply one to two drops to the bottom of your child’s feet to help soothe and calm them when they wake up frightened. Not only is it used to help you have feelings of calmness, it also helps keep your skin looking healthy. During your facial routine, add one to two drops to your facial toner or moisturizer to promote clear, healthy looking skin.

Are you unsure about taking oils internally? I was, too in the beginning.

When you start using essential oils, it’s so important to educate yourself and ask questions! There are lots of great resources out there and I can recommend some of my favorite books and other resources if you need some help.

Here is my best tip for internal use—read the labels!

Even though some store bought oils 😣 say 100% pure, they also say on the bottle “not for internal use”.

When you first start using oils internally ALWAYS check the bottle for the supplements fact label. If it does not have it, then it is not safe for internally use. Easy peasy. In time you will know which ones are and aren’t, but I still double check if it’s one I am not familiar with.

Oh, and DōTERRA oils are different—they actually ARE pure. (You can look at the testing of each bottle by entering in the code on the bottom of your bottle to http://www.sourcetoyou.com).

Jasmine

Do you know this pretty little flower??

It’s jasmine! And it’s FREE today!

Known for its warm and floral fragrance, Jasmine also provides a myriad of benefits both aromatically and topically. Here are some of our favorite uses:

💧Apply on your wrists and neck as a personal fragrance. Jasmine’s aroma is intensely floral, warm, musky, and exotic—the perfect scent for a fun perfume. (Not to mention its scent is also uplifting!)

💧Jasmine is known to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections and promote healthy-looking, radiant skin. Because of its convenient application in a roll-on bottle and its combination with Fractionated Coconut Oil, you can apply Jasmine Touch directly on skin imperfections in the morning and night. Not only will it help reduce the appearance of skin imperfections but it will also leave your skin with a beautiful glowing complexion.

💧Because Jasmine has such an uplifting scent, using Jasmine Touch on our pulse points is the perfect way to uplift mood. Emotionally, Jasmine promotes feelings of joy, peace, and self-confidence. Applying Jasmine in the morning will help provide a positive outlook on the day and leave you feeling uplifted and confident.

Fun Facts

💧Jasmine is one of the most precious essential oils because extracting it is extremely labor-intensive. The extraction process must be done at daybreak when the flowers are most fragrant and have the highest percentage of aromatic components intact.

💧Due to the large amount of flowers needed to produce a small amount of oil, Jasmine is highly sought after in both the perfume industry and in aromatherapy.

Wellness Wednesday

Wellness Wednesday!

Boy, has this concept taken me decades! I feel like I am FINALLY coming into a place of self-love. True self love. Not the surface stuff.

Sure, I know I do great work in the world and I make a difference but I am talking about the really hard stuff for most women—physical body love.

Since I have been a heavy woman at one point in my life, I know far too well how easy it is to look in the mirror and feel bad about what I saw. Here’s the deal—the inner dialogue we have to ourselves about ourselves, ESPECIALLY related to our bodies has to end!

Over the years I have developed some practices/habits that are key for stoking my inner flame of self-love.

Check them out:

💗daily walks—typically without music, podcasts or anything that distracts me from the present moment of pure bliss in nature

💗journaling—not the blah blah blah type, but a gratitude and positive affirmation journal

💗bubble baths—every single day I lay my bod into a bath infused with Epsom salt and essential oils

💗supplements—I take the highest quality supplements (dōTERRA Life Long Vitality) every day. These provide my body with all the proper key vitamins, minerals and omegas without fillers and other stuff. I also take probiotics daily.

💗fermented foods—kombucha, kevita, apple cider vinegar, sauerkraut all support my gut, which we now know effects our entire body

💗water—And lots of it. I drink approximately 100oz a day. I add grapefruit, lemon, lime or peppermint EO. Tasty!

💗jigsaw puzzles—a great way to unwind and let my mind wander. Plus, it is super relaxing.
