Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ November 2016

14958948_10154397508323145_255413315_o

Dear friends,

finally spring – or summer? – is here! I so love the warmer weather and spending more time outdoors. And we have a few tips in this newsletter for keeping the mozzies and flies at bay plus hay fever help.

But first let’s go back to the basics:

the-why-how-and-what-of-doterra-essential-oils

WHY doTerra Essential Oils?

Did you know that there is no standard in the essential oil industry? This means that anyone can sell anything and label it an essential oil. Which is happening a lot now since essential oils are becoming more popular. I’ve seen essential oils being sold for a few dollars a bottle at reject stores, shopping centers, chemists… So most of those really cheap oils are completely synthetic and you really wouldn’t want to put them on your skin or even inhale them too much. If you’re really sensitive they might give you a headache. Next are essential oils that are diluted with other oils. Depending on the other oils these would be safe for a massage for example. Then there are also food grade essential oils to flavour sweets and food. And even amongst natural essential oils there can be a big difference in potency. That’s why doTerra puts their oils through many test to assure that they are CPTG – Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. To learn more about the testing go here. Another big difference with doTerra essential oils is that they are sourced from the country of origin of the plant – which makes them so much more potent because they grow in the perfect climate and soil conditions. And you can learn more about that here

HOW to use doTerra Essential Oils

There are three main applications for doTerra Essential Oils: Aromatic – Topical – Internal

14924121_10154397581963145_1151776582_o

And there’s a great information page on the doTerra webpage about How to use your oils safely. Most oils are ingestible – however there are a handful of oils that are not safe for internal use like: Arbovitae, Cedarwood, Cypress, Eucalyptus, White Fir and Wintergreen. Do you notice a theme here? Most of them are distilled from trees.

One question I get asked a lot is: how many drops is safe to use per day? And this chart by Dr. Hill answers that question:

14958956_10154397449548145_221722099_o

screen-shot-2016-11-04-at-11-24-57-am

Another question is: How much essential oil do I use when I dilute it?

the-why-how-and-what-of-doterra-essential-oils

My favourite carrier oil is fractionated coconut oil. It is so smooth and silky it gets absorbed really quickly. And best of all it’s non-greasy. So no oil stains on your clothes if you feel like giving yourself a quick aromatic massage after the shower. You can order a bottle of fractionated coconut oil next time you place your doTerra order or get it in bulk online from Aussie Soap Supplies.

WHAT doTerra Essential Oils should I use?

Ahhhh… this is a great question! Did you know that I offer free Wellness Consults where we look into any health concerns/challenges you and your family might have and what the best solutions for them are? Just send me a message or email to book a consult and let’s work out together how you can best benefit from the large range of products that doTerra offers.

14959082_10154397712303145_1864034607_o

Personally I also think it’s worth it for every one to have the Home Essentials Kit because it covers your 10 most popular oils – and you will use these a lot. And on top of that we are of course all very individual. When I first started off with doTerra a couple of years ago I had those 10 oils from the Home Essentials Kit. We used them successfully for lots of physical ailments and emotional issues and then looked up online what else would be useful for our family – and thus our oil collection grew… One of my favourite tools is the Modern Essentials App. It’s so easy to use: you type in your favourite oils and find out what you can use them for. Or you type in an ailment and find out which oils to use. The Modern Essentials App is US$8 in your App Store and looks like this:

14975930_10154397643288145_1582769922_o

And another one of my absolute favourites – a book that I use every day – is the ‘Emotions and Essential Oil‘. Every doTerra essential oil has a separate page describing it’s emotional benefits. It’s a fantastic book. And if you’d like to grab one please send me a message.

14963660_10154397658968145_619933432_o

Okay… so, back to summer and mozzies, flies and hay fever season:

I actually used my Modern Essentials App to look up this information on hay fever:

14923062_10154397516853145_1830685483_o

My husband has also been using the EasyAir very successfully – just a drop at the time rubbed into the palms of your hands and inhaled to soothe the respiratory system.

And as far as mozzies, flies and other bugs and insects go… doTerra is now offering TerraArmour from the Australian warehouse – hurray!

whats-new-this-month

Great incentives to share doTerra

I remember when I first experienced the amazing benefits of doTerra products – I just couldn’t help myself, I had to tell my friends about it. But I didn’t have any answers to the Why? and How? and What? back then. And I didn’t know anyone here in Perth who did either… So if you feel like sharing the oils with your family and friends and need someone to explain it all – why not host an Introduction Class? I’ll come to your house for a very informative but also informal and fun class. And this month I’ve got a super special offer for anyone who wants to host a class:

I’ll be away from Monday, 7th til Friday, 10th November and I’ve got lots of time after that for you to book a classdaytime, evening or weekend.

‘Could I do this as a business?’

If you have asked yourself that question come and join us on the 19th November for a training day with Emily Falconbridge. Em is also my partner in the *soulful escapes to bali* and she really rocks doTerra as a business! And so do some of our other team here in Perth. We’d love you to join us for an inspiring information and training session. I am at the moment looking for capable and committed people to join my expanding team here in Perth. Contact me for more details on the training session if you want to find out more. In June last year I didn’t think I was suited to this type of business… I have learned so much in the last 14 months – about oils and about myself. And I can now say that I love doing this. I feel very passionate about sharing the oils and get so much out of helping people improve their sleep, relieve anxiety and tension, soothe aches and pains, support their immune systems and general wellbeing… It’s a real blessing for me to be working with doTerra. They are an incredibly ethical company and support everyone who comes in contact with them: from the growers to everyone using the oils and people like me who do this as a business. After one year my business has grown to a point where I am able to supplement the family income considerably.

Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ October 2016

Greetings from Bali!

Hope you are all keeping well and enjoying the many benefits of our pure essential oils. We’ve been here in Bali for the last couple of weeks enjoying the warm weather and spending lots of time with our Balinese friends – including the ladies of our women’s co-op who sew the beautiful bags for the essential oils. We went on a trip to a traditional market in a town in East Bali where all the ikat fabrics are sold to source new fabrics. I also bought lots more of the vintage patchwork fabrics which the ladies are just now turning into the 16-bottle bags:

imageWe are hoping to increase the bag production to the point where we can sell them to you online. Stay tuned….

 

imageLast month around 30,000 doTerra enthusiasts came together in Utah for the annual global convention to learn about new products and new partnerships in humanitarian causes and the latest scientific research. I always get really excited about the science behind the oils. And one presentation that I loved was by Nicole Parish, an assistant professor in pathology at JHU Medical School. She talked about her mum who is 81 and used to get seriously ill every winter until one year recently when she stayed well throughout the winter. When Nicole got curious her mum told her about the amazing oils she was taking. And that’s how Nicole discovered doTerra and got involved in a research project testing 100 of our oils and their activity against multi drug-resistant bacteria: 3 oils have significant activity and an additional 17 oils have good activity. Nicole and her research partners published a paper in a medical journal entitled: “Essential Oils and Future Antibiotics: New Weapons against Emerging ‘Superbugs’?” Isn’t that exciting?

image

And here are the new products from convention:

image

 

Last month I said that we would continue looking at my daily routine and how to use doTerra products for healthy sleep and a good evening routines for the whole family:

image

> Lavender essential oil: has a calming and relaxing effect. Add to your diffuser – either on its own or together with any of your favourite oils. Sandalwood, Geranium, Clary Sage and Vetiver are beautiful companions for Lavender. You can also rub a drop or two of Lavender on the bottom of your big toes for a good nights sleep. Or add a couple of drops to the bathtub or a foot bath. 

> Serenity or LavenderPeace as its called here in Oz is another wonderful essential oil blend which like the Lavender is suitable for the whole family:

image

One of the new products from last month’s convention is the Serenity Restful Complex:

image

And last but not least, I would like to recommend the Lifelong Vitality Pack. I can’t stress enough how important this product is for anyone who is serious about improving their general wellbeing. Not only does it support healthy cellular functions and the immune system, increase vitality and energy levels it also improves sleep. Since I have been taking the Lifelong Vitaly supplements I sleep more deeply, need less sleep and wake up more refreshed then before.13902203_10154112582093145_314172127_o

Please contact me if you need help ordering the Serenity Restful Complex or the Lifelong Vitality Pack – both products are at the moment only available from the US warehouse.

And please contact me if you would like to introduce your friends and family to these beautiful pure essential oils and their many health benefits. I offer introduction classes for small groups (4-6 people) at my house or you can host one at your place. The classes are relaxed and informative and the host receives a special gift. 

With lots of warm greetings from Bali, Nicole xo

Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ September 2016

Dear friends,

how are you all? I hope you’ve been enjoying the recent blue skies – looks like spring is just around the corner…

In this newsletter I’d like to share with you how doTerra essential oils have become a part of my everyday life – and that of my family. So let me take you through a typical day…

my morning routineuplifting wake-up blend

One of the first things I do in the mornings is put the diffuser on. I usually use a citrus oil like Wild Orangeall citrus oils are uplifting – and a mint oil (Peppermint or Spearmint) because they make you alert. At the moment I love Clary Sage and add a couple of drops of it to most of my diffuser blends. Clary Sage is the “Oil of Clarity & Vision”: Clary Sage opens the soul to new possibilities and experiences. It assists in opening creative channels and clearing creative blocks. It eliminates distractions from the mind. ~ exert from ‘Emotions and Essential Oils’ 

The first thing I drink in the mornings is a glass of luke warm water with a drop of Lemon oil in it. Lemon is great for cleansing the whole body system. It also helps to focusenergise and bring joy. With my breakfast I take my Lifelong Vitality supplements. Since I’ve been taking them I wake up in the mornings refreshed and ready to face the day. I get at least double as much done as before and don’t feel like crashing from exhaustion. I sleep less but much deeper. I feel full of energy and wellbeing.

The last picture above is of one of our bathroom shelves – lots of doTerra products there:

  • IceBlue rub – I use that one first thing every morning on my creaky knees
  • HD Clear skin care – great for teenagers and young adults. Promotes healthy clear skin.
  • Salubelle – what can I say… this anti-ageing oil blend is amazing. Absolutely love it!
  • Verage skin care – these 4 products are easy to use and make my skin feel so soft
  • Fractionated Coconut Oil – non-greasy; great to use with your favourite essential oil for a quick massage after the shower to rehydrate your skin and nurture yourself with the fragrance and benefits of essential oils
  • OnGuard toothpaste – antibacterial and antifungal – leaves your mouth feeling  fresh and clean
  • doTerra natural deodorant – fantastic non-toxic alternative to shop-bought deodorants

This Month’s PromotionsOnGuard Promotion extended

Please let me know if you need help to qualify for these promotions.

Time for a Spring Clean

This month’s 10% off oil ~ Zendocrine ~ is perfect for an internal spring clean.

  • Add 1–2 drops to citrus drinks, teas, or water to support healthy liver function.
  • Take one drop daily for one week as part of an internal cleansing regimen

Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Internal use: Dilute one drop in a glass of liquid.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimise any skin sensitivity.

I recently attended one of Dr. Martha Nessler‘s seminars. Martha is a Chiropractor and doTerra Wellness Advocate. She talked about the Sympathetic Brain and how it’s Fight or Flight mode can make us totally imbalanced and agitated when it’s overloaded. With children this often happens after too much screen time. Martha was saying that at this stage Lavender will not help the child to calm down and sleep, but Zendocrine will help the overloaded sympathetic brain to calm. Other oils that assist to regain a sense of balance and homeostasis are Balance and Sandalwood.

 

my morning routine (2)

I have the diffuser on several times throughout the day. Try some of these great diffuser blends:

14163666_10154198477738145_877740987_o

 

Other products I use all day long:

my 3 life savers

  • PastTense – I roll it on the back of my neck to soothe any stress related tension
  • InTune – helps me to stay focused and smells great of Patchouli and Ylang-Ylang
  • ClaryCalm – hormone balancing and calming

Smart&Sassy is another one of my favourites. It’s a metabolic blend and has helped to curb my chocolate cravings!! I put a couple of drops in my water bottle and drink it throughout the day – tastes fresh and citrusy

OnGuard cleaning concentrate – one bottle of concentrate makes 18 spray bottles of cleaning liquid. It’s antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral and keeps my kitchen and bathroom and actually the whole house fresh and clean.

Dear friends,

how are you? Hope you’ve all been keeping warm and well. It’s been pretty freezing cold here in Perth in the mornings recently. And at this time of year I take full advantage of all the benefits that the essential oils offer.

13918654_10154112582703145_355329165_o

If you were lucky enough to receive the free Cheer and Motivate oil blends last month – that combination is one of my favourites at the moment to diffuse in the mornings. Nothing like a bit of cheerful motivation to get going on a cold morning!

Cheer is an uplifting citrus & spice blend and Motivate an encouraging minty-citrus blend. They go really well together. But you can also use them on their own. They are both part of the Emotional Aromatherapy Kit. Apart from diffusing them I also find them really effective when I use just one or two drops and rub them between the palms of my hands and then inhale the aroma deeply a few times. When you use these pure essential oils aromatically the fine volatile particles enter through your nose and go straight to your olfactory nerves and to your limbic system which directly effects your heart rate, blood pressure, memory and emotions. I often use Motivate before I start working.

13898514_10154112612228145_1733036076_o

If you don’t have the Cheer and Motivate blends try two drops each of Peppermint, Lemon and OnGuard for another minty-citrus-spice blend for your diffuser. Plus you’ll have the added benefit of the OnGuard oil which will eliminate any airborne threats when diffused.

OnGuard is one of the oils that I use daily. I just add a drop or two to my water bottle and drink it throughout the day. If you don’t like the taste you can also apply a drop or two to the bottom of your feet mornings and evenings to get the protective benefits of this antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral blend. Or use the OnGuard beadlets or capsules.

Here in Australia we are lucky to have a special OnGuard promotion this month:

13898182_10154112582353145_1525251650_o

click here for details.

The other product that really keeps me going is the Lifelong Vitality Kit:

13902203_10154112582093145_314172127_o

I used to be one of those people who have a hard time getting out of bed, take ages to get going and seriously crash after the slightest bit of exertion. Sound familiar? No energy?

Only recently I said to my husband that I finally feel the way I always wanted to feel: I wake up in the mornings refreshed and ready to face the day. I get at least double as much done as before and don’t feel like crashing. I sleep less but much deeper. I feel full of energy and wellbeing. Sometimes I literally feel like all my cells are buzzing with vitality!

I’ve been taking the Lifelong Vitality supplements daily since December. I noticed a difference in my energy levels after less then a week. And I think it has also effected my metabolism – I’ve lost almost 10 kg of weight and feel great!

So… how about if I make you a special offer this month?

If you would like to try the Lifelong Vitality pack but you don’t have a Loyalty Rewards Program with a US account set up I will order a pack for you through my account. Please send me an email or message if you are interested so we can arrange payment and delivery.

13898690_10154112753618145_330434229_o

Other promotions this month are:

If you are on the Loyalty Rewards Program and place an order of a minimum 125PV before the 15th of August you will receive the free Oil of the Month: a 5ml bottle of DigestZen:

13898318_10154112714323145_1431457283_o

 

One of the new oils in my collection this month is Cilantro – steam distilled from the fresh leaves of the coriander plant. I’ve been adding just one drop of Cilantro to stir fries and Mexican beans and it adds a great fresh taste.

13932275_10154112782248145_1809803739_o

Interestingly Cilantro is also the Oil of Releasing Control in emotional aromatherapy. One or two drops rubbed between the palms of your hands and then inhaled will help you to address negative emotions that are controlling, toxic, constricted, obsessive, clingy, and emotionally trapped. Cilantro facilitates a detoxification of negative emotions and debris. It is helpful in lighting one’s load through the release of issues buried in the body, heart and soul. Cilantro assists individuals in shedding what is not in harmony with their soul. Its positive properties are cleansing, liberated, unattached, ease and lightened. ~ excerpt from Emotions & Essential Oils book

If you enjoyed the co-impact sourcing video last month then here’s another one about growing and distilling Lemongrass in Southern IndiaLemongrass Co-Impact Sourcing

13843650_10154112901708145_837206477_o

 

And as always I’d like to invite you to host an Introduction Class to Essential Oils for your family and friends to share the amazing health benefits that doTerra products offer us. There are great host presents to choose from. And you’re also welcome to book in for an AromaTouch massage (see June Newsletter).

Send me a message if you need any more information or have suggestions for this newsletter – I always love to hear from you🙂

Take care and keep using those oils. xxo Nicole

 

Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ July 2016

Dear friends,

greetings from Singapore! I arrived here two days ago to follow up on the visit in May and teach a couple more essential oil classes with a friend. And I am so glad to have a collection of my oils with me as constant travel companions.

image

I actually had a nice hot bath after arriving here with a couple of drops of Balance and Lavender – sooooo relaxing!

imageAs you can probably tell… I love all my different oil bags 💜 The two bags on the right – the small key chain pouch that fits 8 tiny bottles and the carry bag for 16 x 15ml bottles – are made in our women’s co-op in Bali from hand painted fabrics and recycled vintage sarongs. We often give them away as host gifts when you host an oil class for family and friends or other special incentives – so please let me know if you are interested in hosting a class. I am free between the 21st and 31st July to come to your house and introduce your friends to the benefits of doTerra essential oils. You can choose to have a general introduction class or a specific theme like: Health Support with Essential Oil during the Winter Months, Women’s Health, Essential Oils for Children, Emotional Support with Essential Oils…

image

And here are some great essential oil tips you might like to try. The first one comes from Karen, one of our Perth members. The second I googled after I received a sweet gift of shower melts which a friend and her children had made for me with Breathe oil – it clears your airways while you have a shower! And the third one I found on socia media and thought was interesting

image

Let me know if you have any tips you want to share here or are looking for specific health solutions with essential oils.

And remember…. the doTerra website – doterra.com – has lots of information on all the products and the companies humanitarian projects in developing countries. If you haven’t watch it yet… here’s a great video about the Co-impact Sourcing

image

And if you are not a doTerra member yet and would like to be able to have access to the whole range of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils and products at Wholesale Prices then this month you can receive two free oils:

image

Send me an email to find out how to qualify for this special deal and I’ll help you with your enrolment and I’ll throw in a little surprise gift as well 😀

Well, that’s all for now. Keep warm and healthy and don’t forget to use your oils. With lots of warm tropical greetings, xo Nicole

Dear friends,

how are you all settling into the colder autumn and winter months?

We have been using a lot of On Guard in the diffuser to eliminate airborne threats. In the mornings I usually add a drop or two of Wild Orange to it for that beautiful uplifting fragrance and in the evening a bit of Lavender for a relaxing mood.

Here are a few more diffuser blends that are beneficial throughout the winter months:

13340702_10153951843328145_1625664903_o

 

Another favourite at this time of year is Oregano with it’s warming properties

13388984_10153951825648145_939756633_o

To find out more about protecting your immune system with essential oils you might like to read this article by Dr. Hill, doTerra’s chief medical advisor.

To find out more about Immortelle/Salubelle click here

13334835_10153951962338145_1989142282_o

The other news is that I went to Singapore in May to attend Dr. Hill’s essential oil seminar and his training in the AromaTouch massage.

13383378_10153951903088145_1685071983_o

As you can see, i was a very attentive student🙂     This was such a great opportunity to learn from Dr. Hill himself who developed this clinical massage technique using eight different essential oils. It’s a very gentle rhythmic application to stimulate the blood flow and neurological tissues with the oils. And it leaves the recipient feeling relaxed and more balanced.

If you have never had an AromaTouch massage before and would like to have this uplifting essential oils experience, send me a message or email to make an appointment.

Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 7.37.51 pm

And last but not least let me know if you would like a free half hour Wellness Consult to chat about how the oils can benefit you and your family in addressing health concerns, emotional issues, skin care etc… I am available for the consults in person or via skype.

If you are interested in hosting an Essential Oils Introduction class for your family and friends or a more specific event like – Essential Oils for Children or Essential Oils during the Winter Months – please contact me. Small groups (up to five people) are best to give every one individual attention. And the host receives one of the beautiful oils bags that we have made in our Women’s Co-op in Bali.

Dear friends,
how are you all? Have you diffused an oil yet today?
I’ve been diffusing CitrusBliss with a drop of Spearmint to keep me alert and uplifted while I’ve been trying to figure out how to create a newsletter – and it worked🙂

After tossing up between sending the newsletter as an email or writing it as a blog post I decided on the blog – like this all the newsletters will be archived. Much like all my previous blog posts from years ago…

I’ve been thinking about writing an essential oils newsletter for a while to pass on seasonal tips, special promotions, maybe a recipe here and there… and anything else that might help you use the oils that you have ordered. Because let’s face it… there’s nothing worse then having just received  a box of precious oils and not knowing what to do with them, right? 
oil uses
Here are some uses for the 10 oils in the Home Essentials Kit that most of you ordered plus a few of the most popular blends.
Make sure to only take the Oregano in a veggie cap if you take it internally and diluted with a carrier oil on your skin.

Change of Season – are you ready for it?

From May 24-31  I’ll be free to teach Introduction to Essential Oils classes at your house.
Let me know if you would like to host a class. I brought back lots of oils bags from Bali that my Balinese girlfriends in our women’s co-op have made for you from recycled vintage sarongs. Every bag is unique and all hosts can choose a bag as a present.

Feel free to pass this newsletter on to anyone who might be interested.

And let me know if there’s anything in particular you’d like me to cover in the next newsletter.

I hope you enjoy the cooler autumn weather this month and keep the bugs away, xo Nicole
