Categories of Plants

This makes it so simple. Look below at how each category of plants offers emotional benefit.

Do you have any of the emotional blends? I love how they are blended perfectly to help support a spectrum of emotions.

After the Distillation Process

Have you ever wondered what happens to rest of the plant material that is left after the distillation process?
This was doterra’s corporate response and I loved it!
“After the essential oil is distilled each farmer determines the best way to reuse the spent plant material. These uses vary depending on the type of plant material, the region where it is grown, and the preference of the farmer. Some of the common ways the spent material are used include:
*as compost for the farmer’s fields
*as a recycled fuel source for the distillation boilers
*as a by-product that is sold as compost to the community
*as animal fodder
*as part of a closed-loop energy cycle where the spent material can even be used to generate enough energy to contribute back to the local energy grid
Every effort is made, where possible, to find ways to replenish the environment in a positive way.”
How amazing is that?29342377_10157280104117995_2706207933422632960_n.jpg

The Real Teachers

It is the greatest honor to share yoga with people living with traumatic brain injuries.  I believe that so often when an ‘event’ such as those that my people have experienced occurs, the Ego is no longer part of their life.

They no longer battle the things us ‘typical’ people battle; competition, comparison, grasping for material things, future based fears, past regrets….those are all Ego.  Instead, my people show up in WHOLENESS as they are with no agendas and the most open of hearts.

They are indeed present to what is and often in the most joyous of ways.  They have taught me far more than I have taught them.

I believe wholeheartedly that they are truly the most extraordinary of teachers.

A New Earth Revisted

This book. Weathered, tabbed, highlighted and so worn. I’m returning to it (again).

Spring time 2004 was when I began to shed old patterns and beliefs and emerge into a life of awakening and presence. This book came along a few years later and was paramount in my path. It is always a treasure to re-read and ponder the handwritten notes to see where I’ve been and what resonates in my current life.

I remember exactly where I was on the trail and the sound my feet made as they crunched along the path. With each step, I was walking away from old beliefs and going towards such a vast, open and welcoming new life. I felt free and light as I was no longer weighed down and heavy, both physically and emotionally.

In time, the inner light that was always there began to shine beyond the sadness and the ponderous load I had felt I had to carry for decades.

With light came freedom and a life of deep purpose. Aligned with my soul and now open to allow all that IS into my daily life. In return, I circulate that goodness.

What an incredible wake up.

Essential Oil Safety

I used to use any essential oil I could find and never even cared about the quality (or safety).

Not any more! I am super careful as to what I put ON and IN my body.

There are countless reasons why I chose dōTERRA but this is one of the biggest reasons—safety!

🌿dōTERRA’s oils are sourced from the region of the world where it is native. For example, frankincense is collected by farmers in Somalia where the Boswellia tree grows in ideal conditions. No greenhouses here!

🌿each batch goes through 8 different rounds of testing and is also subject to third party testing.

🌿here is where it gets even more amazing—because so many emerging EO companies claim to be pure, dōTERRA takes it a step further and provides the consumer with testing reports. Each batch has a lot number that you can locate on the bottom of your bottle. Enter that number into http://www.sourcetoyou.com and you can see the testing results. That is transparency.

If your preferred brand doesn’t have this strict of safety (and honesty) in mind, I encourage you to think twice.

Allergy Relief

Spring is coming and with that means allergies for many people! Even though the flowers and budding trees are so pretty they come with a bit of suffering. Fortunately there is a pretty easy and affordable—and natural—remedy.

You can take these 3 oils and diffuse them all day for relief, or make a 10ml roller bottle with 10-20 drops each (for adults) and apply to throat, neck, or behind the ears. Or, if you use a brand that is safe for internal use, you can take 2-3 drops each in an empty capsule or in water. (look at your label—if it doesn’t have a supplement fact listing it is NOT safe…store bought oils do not).

🌿lemon helps dry up mucous and fight off unwanted threats to our immune system

🌿lavender calms the overreaction of our histamine response naturally without overpowering our body’s natural processes

🌿peppermint opens up airways and promotes clear breathing.

*DōTERRA sells softgels ready to go for internal use if you don’t want the hassle.

If you are ready, just go to:

https://www.doterra.com/US/en/site/staciewyatt and click join and save! Choose a starter kit (my favorite is the home essentials kit) and you are all set!  When you purchase a starter kit, you get exclusive team perks, an amazing welcome gift and access to free education.

Heart Chakra

The fourth chakra, the heart chakra,rests in the center of the chakra system, at the core of our spirit. Its physical location is the heart, upper chest, and upper back. The fourth is the balance point, integrating the world of matter (the lower three chakras) with the world of spirit (the upper three chakras). The element of this chakra is air, which is why we feel breathless when we are consumed with love and when we have heartache. The health of our heart center registers the quality and power of love in our life.


In Sanskrit, the heart chakra is called Anahata, which means “unstruck” or “unhurt.” Its name implies that deep beneath our personal stories of brokenness and the pain in our heart, wholeness, boundless love, and a wellspring of compassion reside.


Being an even-numbered, feminine chakra, the heart center naturally yearns to release and let go. When we feel fearful, there is no room for love, and our bodies show contraction.


Some signs that the heart chakra is overpowering your life can include co-dependency, possessiveness, jealousy, heart disease, and high blood pressure.


Helping others, being of service, random acts of kindness are all heart chakra work. The most powerful way to open, energize, and balance not just the heart chakra but all of our chakras is to love ourselves and others. Give and receive love.
