Stress Relief

Stress. Who doesn’t experience stress on a regular basis? Just walking on my son’s playground I’ve even heard children talking about being stressed. 😳 This oil is how the spa smells and how yoga feels all in one bottle. 😻 Adaptiv was created specifically to help boost mood, assist in centeri...

Chill Pill

“Stress is the trash of the modern life- we all generate it, but if you don’t dispose of it properly, it will overtake your life.” -Danae Pace Stress. If you poll anyone in your life you’re likely to get them to admit they have some level of stress. Sometimes this stress can be hindering and can interfer...

Instant Results

“You wouldn’t plant a seed and then dig it up every few minutes to se if it has grown. So why do you keep questioning yourself, your hard work and your decisions? Have patience, stop overthinking and keep watering your seeds.” ~Steven Bartlett I ate the kale am I healthy yet? Yep. We l...

The King of Oils

Frankincense. There are SO many reasons why it is called the king of all oils. “When in doubt, frankincense,” is a motto I heard early on with my experience with oils. Frankie, as some of my friends and I lovingly call it, helps reduce inflammation among many uses. For my chronic head pain sufferers, this is a MAJOR life saver. Even with chronic migraines science only knows that migraines cause generalized brain inflammation of unknown etiology. Ente...

I have spoken many times on this special oil but I just realized I’ve never written about it. If you have skin, you need this oil. Yep. That simple. 😉 To quote doTERRA, "Yarrow|Pom is an expertly crafted proprietary blend of Yarrow essential oil and cold-pressed Pomegranate seed oil designed to be your go-to for a true inside-out approach to aging, vitality, overall wellness, and, quite frankly, how to get that glow.

Lunar New Year

I love the Lunar New Year! I save my resolutions, word of the year, and yearly mantra for the Lunar New Year (yes part of the reasoning is due to the fact that I’m just not ready yet January first). Lunar New year or more commonly called the Chinese New Year is upon us. This day is marked in many areas as a day of large celebration and transition into a new year. Red is commonly worn and it is a day of celebration and food. Yes the date is forever changing because this holiday, like Easter is marked by the moon. The Lunar New Year is the day after the second new moon after the winter solstice. The Lunar Calendar involves the 12 zodiac signs alternating every year, an element and an energy of yin...

🔥 The Fire Inside You🔥 “There is enough fire inside you to put all of Hell to shame, but you are pretending to be water for someone who is too afraid to handle the dragons in your belly. Stop crushing the thing that makes you. Embrace the flames. Be whole again for yourself.” ~Nikita Gil Last night was a journey back to self. My dear friend and badass boss babe Hayley Adamski-Collins led us through her ignite your inner ROAR series. This bite sized piece of her greater coaching work lit that fire of inspiration and made me feel more like myself than I have in ages! We journaled through different categories of life and where we wanted to be in each of these categories. At the end we mediated on a word. A few words and phrases came t...

Clove for Toothaches

Ah clove, a VERY old friend of mine. Long before I found doTERRA I found clove oil. When my son was at that teething age multiple teething aids (gels, tablets, etc) were recalled. As a new mom I was wary to use any option after reading horror stories on how the products came to be recalled, however, my poor son was miserable. My dear friend who had a little one a few months older than my son recommended olive oil and a little of a clove essential oil. After the initial reaction from the horrible taste from my son, he seemed calmer… Sure enough the clove oil helped relieve my son's pain. I later found out in most partial fillings done by dentists there is a clove oil added to it for natural pain relief for the nerves. So when I...

The Lucky Blend

Sunday. A day for ritual and family, yes, for my family that has ALWAYS included football. Rituals for your teams day are always my favorite to learn. What do you do that “helps” the team win? Wearing that favorite jersey, your spot on the couch, that special meal. All little ways we feel we contribute or manifest that win. My ritual includes my @kaepernick7 jersey and a lucky blend diffusing. Green mandarin is for harnessing that pure potential and passion drives that passion for the win. ❤️🖤❤️🖤❤️ UPDATE!!!! This blend has now been officially named as "The Lucky Blend." Why you may ask? Because we won. Yes, my beloved 49ers won and are on their way to the BIG GAME!!!!

With powerful pest repellent benefits, Citronella oil keeps creepy-crawlers out of the house and off your skin and clothing. It is an ideal companion for camping, hiking, and trips to the great outdoors. The oil works by masking the human fragrances that insects find appealing.

Muscle Pain Relief

I love diffusing firs in winter.   ❤️❤️ Something about the crisp, woodsy aroma that makes me love the cozy inside while it’s chilly outside. Supportive to the respiratory system and a helpful expectorant this fir is wonderful to diffuse or use topically on your chest during a cold with a cough. The unique chemistry of Siberian Fir includes bornyl acetate which can be known to brighten and soothe skin making it a favorite oil to use during a massage. My personal favorite way to use Siberian Fir is before and after a workout. I put some topically on my knees and back then smell the energizing aroma before my run and repeat the process after my run and add some lemongrass and deep blue.

Pain Relief

Whether pain is preventing you from movement or you’re sore from movement, deep blue to the rescue! Deep Blue Rub provides a comforting sensation of cooling and warmth to problem areas, promotes circulation and helps aid in inflammation reduction. Most people I meet have bought OTC pain creams for those muscles or back aches but can you pronounce or identify the ingredients? Did you know that most OTC products are made from synthetic chemicals created in a lab to provide that hot/cold feeling? With doterra you know y...

Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse

Welcome to the full moon and lunar eclipse in cancer! The first full moon of this year and decade is a powerful one bringing energy of deep emotional connection and nurturing. On this evening of the full moon I am reflecting on my foundational beliefs surrounding self nurture and needs. What makes you feel safe? How nurturing are you to yourself? How forgiving are you? Especially self forgiveness. And finally finishing with a letter to my child self. So as to not get caught in the emotions of this moon and to gain perspective so you can respond not react, try a grounding meditation this evening. Close your eyes. Breathe deep and long holding the breath for 2 seconds an...

Natural Immune Support

This one stop oil is my favorite way to ward off the seasonal cooties. If you’re wondering what oils I consider a MUST have for travel this is top on the list for ANY trip. When boarding the plane I either pop an on guard throat drop (think a yummy, no-guilt cough drop)or add a couple drops of oil to hot water for a tasty, immune support beverage. The easy-to-use hand sanitizer is a simple way to germs without killing the good bacteria on your skin that most alcohol and antibiotic sanitizers kill (thus causing antibiotic resistant bugs). Anytime I feel that familiar tickle in the back of my throat I gargle with salt water and a drop of on Guard. doTERRA On Guard...

Are you stressed out? Do you suffer from anxiousness? Do you have trouble sleeping? Welcome to the answer. Nature’s chill pill. Serenity soft gels are NOT the amazing restful blend serenity added to gel caps but a unique combination of Lavender essential oil and L-Theanine along with lemon balm, passionflower, and chamomile and other natural plant extracts. When I’m having anxiety and the feelings feel like they are building like a volcano in my body I take one or two of these magic caps and then huff some oils. By the time I’ve put away the oils and taken a few yogic breaths I can already feel the soft gels kicking in and helping me relax and stay grounded. When having a hard time falling OR staying ...
