My son was under the weather recently. I hit him with my usual immune blend, plus On Guard diffusing in his room. Now, this blend is one we have been using religiously every day through the winter, and it's helped us SO much. But this time? Not the same result. 🤔 I do think it's good to switch oils up, so that's what I did. The result? Bam! 👊 He was back to himself quickly.
So instead of my usual immune blend, I layered Melaleuca, Oregano, Rose, and Frank. Waited about a minute between each. Applied every few hours initially, then less once he started feeling better.
So if you find yourself with a stubborn bug, and your usual protocol isn't quite cutting it, don't just throw up your hands in frustration and say "these oils don't work." Switch it up! One of the great things about oils is that there isn't just one for each issue. You have lots to choose from, so experiment!
And speaking of lots of oils, only a few more days to take advantage of the incredibly generous April promo. Start a wholesale membership with any starter kit, get $50 in free oils so you can grow your stash! Get in touch so you don't miss out!
TBT: A super fun girls night in Spokane a couple weeks ago, teaching oil classes with these babes and gabbing past midnight! Of course girls night isnt complete without a little pampering so I brought some of my spa faves. We used doTERRA's detoxifying mud mask, which is infused with Grapefruit, Juniper Berry and Myrrh essential oils. It helps reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles. I use this mask once or twice a week and love the way my skin looks and feels afterwards. .
I've been using each of these oils daily lately, plus 5 others I have in the bathroom!
Which oil/s out of these do you use on a regular basis? What do you see here that you'd like to try?
Are you well oiled? 💧

It all began with one drop of this on my pillow. That lead to a restful “spa-like” night’s sleep, which made my heart happy. Could it be I had avoided drugs to help me sleep? What will become of the new and improved, well-rested, clear thinking me? That lead to the share. You know, the conversation at the copy machine with the co-worker who didn’t sleep well last night. You see where I’m going with this.
That lead to the “thank you” from the co-worker and the thank you from Young Living. Which paid for my next bottle of lavender.
And pretty soon I was getting my oils paid for each month, helping others to know the change that a life with oils can bring, and so on.
Then came the credit cards being paid off and the dreams of bigger financial gifts to things close to my heart a reality. And so on. I’m pretty sure this is going somewhere! #lavender#justonedrop#essentialoils#naturalwellness
FREE Facebook classes!!!
May 7th - May 11th .
🌱I love to help my body recover through the use of natural means that God put on the earth. One of my go to remedies is using essential oils. .
🌱 I love using essential oils during exercise and throughout the day to help me recover faster and improve my health in many ways. I also use them to gently cleanse my body and household of toxins to live a more clean and empowered lifestyle. .
🌱 Many people around me have been battling a nasty cough lately. My favorite remedy for this is using pineapple along with essential oils.
- eating fresh pineapple (or 100% pure organic juice if fresh is unavailable) is great because it contains an anti-inflammatory compound called bromelain. This compound also fights mucus and helps to expel it.
- I pair this with essential oils with anti-viral and anti inflammatory properties for a 1-2 punch to any bug that tries to make my body a home .
. 🌱 If using the plants God put here for us to use for various health hiccups speaks to you I can teach you how to do the same ! .
. 🌱 I offer free Facebook classes! Join us Monday 5/7 through Friday 5/11 for five short yet fun and education packed classes!

This past week in the Daily Health Habits Challenge, the focus has been on supplements. I was never one to take supplements before these. I told myself they were just a big waste of money and they didn’t actually do anything. But I’ve learned that we’re simply not getting the same nutritional value out of our food that they did 100 years ago. And especially for someone who struggles with mental health, I’ve learned that gut health is so so so important.
dōTERRA’s Lifelong Vitality pack is their number one seller. NUMBER ONE. These supplements are full of essential nutrients, metabolism benefits, and powerful antioxidants designed to help promote energy, health, and lifelong vitality.
✨Genera wellness and vitality
✨Antioxidant and DNA protection
✨Healthy hair, skin, and nails
✨Eye, brain, nervous system
✨Liver function and digestive health
✨Lung and respiratory health
✨Gentle on stomach
✨Non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free
✨Bio-available, which means your body recognizes them as food and actually absorbs them. Most supplements aren’t properly absorbed by your body and they just pass through.
I’ve also been taking Terrazyme, which is dōTERRA’s digestive enzyme complex, and PB Assist, dōTERRA’s probiotic. Since taking dōTERRA’s supplements, I’ve noticed an increase in my energy. I’ve had the motivation to take on new projects and focus more on my mental, emotional, and physical health. And most importantly to me, I’ve noticed a huge difference when it comes to my low moods and anxious feelings.
I LOVE that this company is all about foundational health and prevention. Most modern medicine simply treats symptoms as opposed to looking for and fixing the root cause. Instead of waiting for health issues to pop up, let’s be intentional about our health and take care of our bodies and prevent illness before it happens 💕
Clear out your sinuses and relive those pressure headaches because the nice weather is finally here and nobody got time for that ☀️
Diffusing these three on repeat (except I ran out of all of them and have to wait for my next order 🙈)
I am so honored to receive this exclusive blend from dōTERRA to celebrate their 10 year anniversary 🎉 .
dōTERRA is an amazing company that had a mission to change the world one drop of essential oil at a time. 10 years ago, that single drop seemed trivial but through passion and persistence their oils have spread throughout the world with astonishing effect. They have revolutionized how families care for each other and opened doors of scientific study and research. They have been able to build the most tested and trusted essential oil brand in the world and I am so excited to be part of this journey. .
During my time with doTERRA I have witnessed amazing stories from people who have used essential oils for their health concerns and have been shocked with the results. I would love for you to experience the power of these little brown bottles too! I am here to be your mentor and guide ❤️
Cold weather draws me to the fir essential oils....
This combo is so yummy in the diffuser!
🌱 2 drops Siberian Fir 🌱 2 drops Douglas Fir
🌱 2 drops Cardamom
These blend is all about wisdom and objective decisions which is always needed...
It smells so good!
Pretty much the world’s most perfect afternoon snack. Pick-me-up of Ningxia red + sparkling water + a massive bowl of stove top popcorn 🍿🍷(my favorite)!
Ningxia red is made of Chinese wolfberries. These things are legit. 22 essential minerals. 18 amino acids. 3x the vitamin C of oranges. I’ll take 20 plz.
A little care package for a friend who’s been sick non-stop over the past few weeks! 😷 I know this ‘Immune Bomb’ roller blend will support her body’s natural antioxidant defenses & protect her immune system against threats 🚫
For an adult, I suggest 4 drops of each essential oil in a 10ml roller bottle, topped with fractionated coconut oil. Apply to lymph nodes, spine & bottom of the feet as needed! 👊🏻
Hey y’all! You don’t always see my mug around here - but that’s me! 👋🏼 When I’m not behind the computer designing or with my nose in a sketchbook working on ideas...I’m usually reading up on nutrition and taking care of my family
I just realized I’ve been on a health journey for years now (guess I’m not too quick to catch on and these things are always much clearer looking back!) and thought I’d share a little bit about it over in my other feed @gingerbeetwellco
I talk about one of my favorite ideas that’s been running through my head lately and that is that most people have no idea how amazing God designed their body to feel. And because of that, we settle for so much less. We settle for fatigue, pain, you name it. I know, because I was there.
On Guard products are literally my lifesaver! I use them for immune support, cleaning, for oral health, sore throats, laundry helper and so much more. In keeping with the cleaning theme this week though, I thought I’d share how I use the On Guard Cleaner concentrate in my home and why it’s such a great natural alternative to have on hand. .
The #onguard cleaner concentrate utilizes all of the immune boosting properties of the On Guard essential oil. It kills 99% of bacteria without all the added junk that is often times poisonous to our bodies. You only need 2 tablespoons of the concentrate per 24 oz of water and you have yourself a safe and effective counter top spray. For tougher jobs like bathrooms, I use 3 tablespoons of concentrate. I’ve used the concentrate directly on grease spills on my stove or in my oven. I especially like the fact that it is safe to use around my young boys since they inevitably touch the countertops and kitchen table after I clean. .
As a mom of two little boys, this safe Cleaner has been a game changer because I can leave a spray bottle of the diluted mixture in our bathroom, something I never could have done before, because well.....little boys don’t always have the best aim 😂🤣
I remember when I was pregnant with my first son, I was super into researching the best possible of everything. I didn’t want to use toxic diapers, wanted to make all my own baby food, had to have the best of everything basically. My husband and I even got rid of our non stick pans because we didn’t want to ingest or breathe in any sort of the chemicals those things emit or the tiny particles that flake off into your food. Well.....then baby arrives and life happens, and you let go of all of those well intentioned dreams in favor of things like sleep and basic self care like eating and showering. Don’t get me wrong, I was still passionate about having the absolute best for my son but my grand elusions of laundering diapers quickly became second fiddle to survival mode! Fast forward to about a year ago when I really got serious about making over our cleaning products, I began using On Guard and never looked back!
A healthy gut depends purely on what we put in it. Many times our good to bad bacteria balance is off because we consume more foods that feed and nurture the bad bacteria and not the good. This imbalance causes a multitude of problems including candida overgrowth, acidosis, bowel obstructions, IBS, leaky gut syndrome, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, and indigestion. Avoiding foods that contribute to overgrowth of bad bacteria can do wonders for the digestive system. Eating a diet rich in plant fiber, fruit, and of course drinking plenty of water helps to keep this ratio in check. Drinking water helps to keep the digestive tract (and the whole body) hydrated and aids in elimination. Many times we don’t realize how important it is to allow our body to rest through fasting. Fasting gives the body enough time to process the foods you have consumed and process them without interruption and eliminate anything that is causing further damage. Another key thing to a healthy gut is avoiding stress! Many people don’t realize how food plays a major role in our lives. The everyday stress that we encounter in life has a direct reflection upon the foods and diet we choose. Many of us were taught that anytime you are emotional you should treat or pick yourself up with foods such as sweets or junk food. These are our go to foods for anytime we feel sad, depressed, angry, or confused. This bad habit and living a stressful life can cause us to make bad choices such as consuming alcohol, sweets, dairy, meats and for some people, can cause them to be put on medications and anti-depressants.
ABOUT THAT CBD LYFE @meetdosist
I’ve been pretty open about everything in my life, except for my cannabis use. @henrywins and I just spent a month in CA, where recreational cannabis is legal.
THC can be used to numb out, especially if you’re partaking all day everyday, and don’t have a grasp on reality. If used in moderation, I believe it can offer a chill way to relax. The legalization of cannabis has birthed many amazing, healing plant based products that pose alternatives to prescription pills.
The CALM pen from @meetdosist is composed of mostly CBD with about .1% of THC. CBD does not have the psychoactive effects of THC, meaning you don’t feel “high,” but you definitely get all the healing benefits of the cannabis plant (anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety). So far, a single dose of this pen has helped me to dramatically decrease my Ativan use, and in addition to my other self-care practices, live an effective and joyful life.
It’s only been a week, but I’m excited to see how CBD has a positive effect on #mentalhealth + on wellness in general.
Do you guys use CBD products? If so, what?
Big thank you to @meetdosist + @helpme.rhonda.
Disclaimer: as with all things, CBD products might not be right for everyone. I meditate for almost an hour daily, most days I practice yoga asana for 2 hours, and I am currently on a low dose antidepressant. I’m the strongest, happiest, and clearest I have ever felt in my entire life. Like most people, I was strongly against prescription pills, but in combination with a strong self-care routine, and big life changes, I have been able to not only stay alive, but thrive. The wellness ideal would be that I would not be “on” anything, but I am a human living in 2018 in NYC, trying to inspire and change the world. This is what my path looks like. Yours might be different. Neither are wrong. Both are right.
