finally… spring is in the air here in Western Australia – blue skies and sunshine. Last month our team here in Perth had a *Tribe Appreciation Day*. Over 70 of our doTerra members joined us on Saturday, 19 August at Guildford town hall for 3.5 hours of exploring essential oils. We had 6 different presentations on making your own blends ~ diy cleaning products ~ cooking with essential oils ~ Lifelong Vitality supplements ~ emotional aromatherapy for children ~ first aid with doTerra. Plus market stalls offering essential oil related books, accessories, diffusers, jewellery and home made skin care. And iTOVi scans – more on that later…
The day was such a big success. Everyone went home with a goody bag full of products, new inspiration and knowledge on how to make the most of their oils. We are already planning another similar event for the first weekend in December.
With spring in the air it feels like such a perfect time for a bit of self care. Grab that cup of tea and sit in the sun for a few moments soaking up the warmth. Spend just 10 min a day journaling, drawing, stitching. Nurture your soul and spirit.
Essential oils can be such a great support in self care. They help us to relax, to cheer up, to overcome negative emotions, to nurture body and soul.
I came across this great blend the other day: Patchouli ~ Bergamot ~ Black Pepper. Most of us can be a bit hard on ourselves from time to time, right? This blend addresses those issues in a beautiful way.
All in all this blend is grounding, uplifting and warming. When I heard about it I put it in my diffuser straight away! And it is really beautiful for a little massage after a bath or shower or before going to bed: in a small bowl combine 10ml fractionated coconut oil with 2 drops each of Patchouli, Bergamot and Black Pepper – if you don’t have these oils make up your own personal blend. Massage into body from feet upwards.
Self care doesn’t have to take long. It can be those few moments where you get out a bottle of your favourite essential oil, rub a drop between the palms of your hands and inhale the aroma several times. The aromatic particals enter your nose and travel to the limbic system in your brain. Within a couple of seconds they affect your heart rate, blood pressure, breathing and emotions – making you feel relaxed, enlivened, motivated, uplifted… Make sure to remember to inhale your oils regularly throughout the day.
To take the whole experience to another level I will add some recipes for self care in the >DIY section< of the newsletter 💜
doterra released two new oils recently that are only available in Australia and New Zealand: Litsea and Manuka
So far I have only tried the Litsea, which is so similar to Melissa oil but at a fraction of the price. And I am looking forward to getting both of these beautiful oils *FREE* this month with the September promotion – that’s $98 worth of free oils! Find out all about it in the >SPECIAL PROMOTIONS< section of this newsletter…
The other oil you can get free this month is Clove oil, if you put your Loyalty Rewards Order of 125PV in before the 15th September.
In emotional aromatherapy Clove is the Oil of Boundaries: Clove supports individuals to let go of victim mentality. It helps individuals to stand up for themselves, be proactive, and feel capable of making their own decisions, regardless of others’ opinions or responses. Clove assists individuals in letting go of patterns of self-betrayal and codependency by reconnecting them with their personal integrity. It builds up appropriate boundaries and defences. ~ excerpt from ‘Emotions & Essential Oils’ book
Please let me know if you need any help to access these offers. The Clove oil plus the Manuka and Litsea are worth $116.25 – all free this month if you place a LRP order of 200PV.
This is also a great way to get started with oil. Please contact me if any of your friends are interested in joining doTerra with this offer and I will gift you a 100ml bottle of massage oil blend with the Patchouli, Bergamot and Black Pepper oils.
And here are a few tips and recipes on how to take self-care to the pampering level:
