Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ June 2017


Dear friends,

we’ve got lots of exciting news for you this month: fun ways to engage with your oils, the best offer of the year (in my opinion), tips for skin care, DIY and much more… let’s dive straight in:

IMG_7232I’ve used doTerra skin care for about two years now  and even though I’ve always used natural products I’ll never forget using these for the first time. I couldn’t believe how toned and soft my skin felt after cleansing, toning, hydrating and moisturising with the Verage skin care products. I was so excited I called my teenage son to come and feel my skin!IMG_7251.PNG

The Verage skin care collection consists of  four products: a cleanser, a toner, a hydrating serum and a moisturiser. They are easy to use – it literally takes me a couple of minutes – and a little bit goes a long way. Our skin is our largest organ and for me it is really important to know that I use only natural products on my skin. doTerra fulfills this criteria and here’s the ingredients list of the Verage skin careVerage ingredients

The hydrating serum contains another one of my favourite oil blends: Salubelle – or Immortelle as it’s called in most countries outside of Australia – the anti-aging blend.IMG_7252.PNGFor me Salubelle/Immortelle is one of the most luxurious oil blends – it even contains the precious Rose oil. I always carry a bottle in my hand bag and just dab a bit on the parts of my face that I feel need anti-aging: around the eyes, on the forehead, around the mouth and the neck. And I can immediately feel the difference it makes. It makes my skin come alive and engages it in cell regenerating.

dotera also makes two other lines of skin careThe Essential Skin Care and The HD Clear Skin Care which is also suitable for teenagers and to help with acne.


And guess what? This month is my favourite doTerra month of the year! Because anyone can get a *Free Bottle of Salubelle* worth A$129 retail! More about that later…

theThis month I want to introduce you to our YouTube channel. As some of you might know Paul and I have been making little videos where we chat about different oils. We have just completed the last video for the ten oils in the Home Essentials Kit and we hope that you find some new information and ways to use your oils. Click here to go to Nicole & Paul’s YouTube channel


We are planning to make more videos and also start making them in German and Indonesian.

this-monthsAs mentioned before… this month is my favourite doTerra month of the year because I can get a free bottle of Salubelle/Immortelle with my order of 200PVIMG_7198.PNGHow generous is that? If you need any help to place your order please let me know. I also offer free advice on which oils or products you might need in relation to your health goals/challenges. This is a good time to review which oils can assist you and then get your free Salubelle on top of that. I am always available online if you can’t catch me in person.

The other promotions this month are:


living-sharing-buildingEarly last month I received a call from doTerra marketing in Australia asking if I’d like to feature in their monthly online newsletter. The interview was a really great way for me to contemplate the questions and be clear for myself about why I love the products and the company and my job so much. You can read My doTerra interview hereIMG_7256.PNG

Just before that we had also thought that since our videos are so amateurish it might be fun to do something more professional and I collaborated with my niece, Tashi Hall, to make a little Introduction to Essential Oils video. Tashi is an immensely talented filmmaker and a lot of the video was shot without me knowing that it was not a test. Click here to watch:   My introduction to doTerraIMG_7227.PNG

We also just had the doTerra Leadership Retreat in Perth – two days of inspiring talks and presentations shared with around 500 doTerra leaders from around Australia and New Zealand. And I am now travelling in Switzerland and Germany to visit family and friends and teach essential oil classes.



Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ May 2017


Dear friends,

welcome to the month of May! In Europe and Northern America it brings the first fragrance of summer. And for us in Australia the coming of autumn and winter. In the last newsletter we talked about cleansing, boosting the immune system and a healthy digestive system. This month I want to share with you how I was introduced to doTerra and we’ll also look at wood oils.


PastTense is the first doTerra product I came in contact with. I used to suffer from really debilitating migraines since I was in my late teens. And I never found a natural product that could give me relief from the migraines. Just over three years ago I had another migraine coming on and a friend passed me this little roller bottle and said: “just roll this oil onto your neck, your temples and forehead and lie down and you’ll be alright.” I thought: ” as if…” but she’s a lovely person and I just gave it a go. After 20 minutes I was able to get up and continue with my day. The usual migraine routine was to vomit and get so light sensitive that I’d have to stay in a dark room until the next day. You can probably imagine my surprise. I just looked at that small bottle saying ‘PastTense’ and wondered: “what is this?”


I always carry a bottle of PastTense with me in my handbag (along with a few others that come in handy…). And this month I will give a ***FREE bottle of PastTense*** to anyone who wants to become a doTerra member with a kit AND everyone who introduces a friend who then becomes a member.


theThis month we will look at the many benefits of oils made from trees: Cedarwood, Douglas Fir and Sandalwood


I love the warm woody smell of Cedarwood and use it often for its grounding properties in the diffuser. It blends well with Bergamot, Clary Sage, Eucalyptus… In emotional aromatherapy Cedarwood is the Oil of Community: Cedarwood brings people together to experience the strength and value of community. Cedarwood supports individuals in seeing that they are not alone; life is a shared experience. It invites individuals to both give and receive, so they may experience the strength of groups and the joy of relationships. ~ excerpt from Emotions & Essential Oils.


Cedarwood is also really helpful in repelling moths from your wardrobe: just add a drop or two to a cotton ball and put it between your clothes.



Douglas Fir is an introduced species in New Zealand that causes big environmental problems. Watch this little video to see how doTerra is part of a great solution for this problem and at the same time produces this beautiful oil – true co-impact sourcing! 


The fresh woody smell of Douglas Fir is so beneficial to all sorts of respiratory problems when diffused or diluted in a carrier oil and applied topically. Douglas Fir in emotional aromatherapy is the Oil of Generational Wisdom: Douglas Fir addresses generational issues by inviting individuals to break free from destructive traditions passed down trough their family. It assists individuals to live according to their own conscience and values by letting go of harmful patterns. It teaches that each generation can be a gift of new life, new growth, and new beginnings. ~ excerpt from Emotions & Essential Oils.



Sandalwood – ahhhh…. who loves Sandalwood? I certainly do! I am sitting here writing this and sniffing at this little bottle of magic – the Oil of Sacred Devotion: Sandalwood assists with all kind of prayer, meditation and spiritual worship. It teaches reverence and respect for Deity. This oil has been used since ancient times for its powerful ability to calm the mind, still the heart and prepare the spirit to commune with God. ~ excerpt from Emotions & Essential Oils. It’s that immediate feeling of peace that comes when breathing in Sandalwood that I so love – the calm mind and still heart.


doTerra has produced a great little video on the Hawaiian Sandalwood. As you can see above it has many beneficial properties and varied applications apart from just making me feel great!



There’s a great recipe for a shaving cream with Sandalwood, Peppermint and Melaleuca oil over on the doTerra blog And this is not just for the guys to shave their face but also great for women. It will leave your skin smooth, healthy and moisturized. 


Please check your backoffice for special promotions in Singapore, Europe, the US and Canada. Here in Australia we have the following in May:


If you have been thinking about getting another diffuser for the bedroom or office then this month is perfect with the 10% off the Petal Diffuser.

And all Loyalty Rewards orders over 125PV placed before 15th May receive a free bottle of Cedarwood! To find even more info on this oil click here. Please let me own if you need help placing an order or want to find out more about the Loyalty Rewards Program and how to earn free oils.


Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ April 2017


Dear friends,

I hope this newsletter finds you all well. April for me is always a month for cleansing and boosting the immune system. At the change of seasons it’s so easy to catch some bug and come down with an infection. And your doTerra essential oils can make a real difference there. So many of them have antibacterial and antiviral properties. Others are immune boosters and protect us on a cellular level. What I love about them is how immediately my body responds to the oils – whether taken internally, aromatically ot topically. And if you have a chance to have an AromaTouch massage then go for it. The benefits of this application are countless for our allover wellbeing.


Hurray – the Lifelong Vitality supplements are finally available from the Australian doTerra Warehouse 💜 I know I’ve said this before, but I can’t say it enough: if you are serious about improving your general wellbeing & health, support your immune system, balance your body systems, protect your cellular health and experience improved sleep… then give these supplements a go. They have made a huge difference to my life. I have so much more energy these days, don’t get sick as often, sleep better and just feel great! In fact, at age 50 I finally feel the way I always thought I should feel since I was in my mid 20s. So please contact me if you want to find out more about these amazing natural supplements. You can also find more information on the doTerra website: Lifelong Vitality


This month we’re looking at oils that cleanse the body and boost the immune system.IMG_6553For me the basis of my wellbeing is my digestive system – if that is out of balance the rest of the body will soon follow; including emotional health. DigestZen is a perfectly balanced blend of pure essential oils to aid with any digestive issues. I often have a drop in water after a meal, especially when it includes cheese or cream. It helps my digestive system to process dairy products without giving me any trouble. Alternatively you can also apply a drop or two directly on your tummy or the bottom of feet. On our last *soulful escape to bali* retreat last month we were able to help several of our participants with DigestZen when they had issues ranging from constipation to diarrhoea. >>> This month you will receive a *free 5ml bottle of DigestZen* from doTerra when you place a Loyalty Rewards order of 125PV before the 15th April. Please also have a look at the digestive health supplements. They are very effective for cleansing and restoring a healthy digestive system and many health practitioners are starting to prescribe them now: Digestive Health supplements



doTerra Lemon oil is the simplest way of cleansing your body on a daily basis. Lots of people now drink lemon juice in the mornings for cleansing. But it’s actually the rind of lemons that has more of the beneficial chemical components for cleansing than the juice. And doTerra Lemon oil is cold pressed from organically grown lemons in Italy. Approximately 45 lemons are used to make one 15ml bottle of pure oil – that’s 250 drops of oil. And you will only need one drop first thing in the morning in a glass of water to flush out any toxins from your body and naturally rehydrate your body after sleep. This is the most effective, safe and cheap  way to detox I can think of. And of course Lemon oil doesn’t only cleanse the body – it also helps around the house: 10 Ways to Spring Clean with Lemon



OnGuard – the protective blend – keeps my immune system boosted. I have a drop in my water bottle every day. For those that don’t like the taste there are also soft gels and beadlets. Or you can simply put a drop on the bottom of the feet. This is also the preferred method for children. Because these pure essential oils are so potent children should not ingest them. OnGuard also comes in a very effective throat drops. I always carry a few in my handbag. They provide instant relief for sore throats. On Guard is not only antibacterial and antifungal, it is also antiviral – which makes a great aid during flu season when even antibiotics can’t reach a virus. And diffusing OnGuard will terminate airborne germs.  We also love the OnGuard toothpaste and cleaning concentrate. You’ll never wake up with furry teeth again when you use this toothpaste.



Some really helpful tips on cleaning your home without chemicals: Spring/Autumn Cleaning


As mentiones earlier, DigestZen is the product of the month in April 2017 for Australia: receive a 5ml bottle free with your Loyalty Rewards order of 125PV before the 15th of April. The EasyAir Vapor Stick is 10% off in April in AU/NZ – a great natural alternative to Vicks which contains petroleaum jelly and turpentine.


And how lucky are we in AU/NZ – the IceBlue promotion has been extended to the 15th April. Any order of 200PV will receive a free IceBlue oil and athletic rub worth over A$105 retail.



Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ March 2017

img_6181Dear friends,

I am writing this newsletter on my stop-over in LA. I have just attended the doTerra Leadership Retreat in Orlando, Florida and am on my looooong way back to Australia. The retreat was so amazing and inspiring and confirmed all my reasons for feeling blessed to be part of the doTerra family and sharing these beautiful pure oils to make a change in the world. So many of us are suffering from anxiety, sleeplessness, physical discomfort, emotional upsets, inflammation, low immunity and more… These pure therapeutic oils can make a real and immediate difference in healing our bodies – physical, emotional, mental. And empower us to to take charge of our own healthcare. So let’s start focusing on one of the oils I’d not want to be without…


This doTerra blend – IceBlue or DeepBlue – is pure magic. It contains oils that are well known and frequently studied for their abilities to soothe inflammation, alleviate pain and reduce soreness: Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Ylang Ylang, Helichrysum, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile and Osmanthus. As many of you might know I’ve had problems with my knees for the last 8 years or so. Sometimes I’ve been in so much pain that I could hardly walk. This oil blend – diluted with a carrier oil or as the athletic rub – has made a real difference in soothing my discomfort. I apply it usually first thing in the morning and then several more times during the day if needed. It’s also great before and after a workout. img_6188

IceBlue is also the special promotion of the month. These ones only come around a few times a year and you can find out further down in the newsletter how to get a *FREE* IceBlue oil blend and the Athletic Rub.


theThis month we are looking at three of the citrus oils: Grapefruit, Lime and Wild Orange. There are a couple of things that all citrus oils have in common: they are cold pressed from the rind of the fruit and they all have uplifting antidepressant properties and are great for cleansing the body and cleaning your home.

img_6198Grapefruit supports healthy metabolism and is therefore a great help for weight loss. Try adding a drop or two to a glass of water to control your appetite and cravings. It’s also effective to diminish cellulite and  you can make a simple body scrub by mixing enough coconut oil with sugar or salt to turn it into a scrub and then add a few drops of Grapefruit oil. Wet the body first, then apply the body scrub and rinse off. There’s also a glass cleanser recipe on the doTerra blogimg_6203


Ahhh, Lime…. do you know why I love this oil so much apart from it’s fresh taste and smell? In emotional aromatherapy it’s the oil of Zest for Life! Isn’t that cool? Zest for Life – I love it! Lime imbues the soul with a zest for life. When a soul has been weighed down with discouragement and grief, Lime elevates them above the mire. It installs courage and cheer in the heart and reminds them to be grateful for the gift of life. ~ excerpt from Emotions and Essential Oils.img_6206


Wild Orange is everyone’s favourite oil. My friend Em dares people to add a drop of Wild Orange to the palms of their hands, rub them together, breathe it it and try to have a negative thought! The smell of Wild Orange is so uplifting that you can’t help it but have positive thoughts and feel great! I use it in the diffuser a lot – it’s energising and revitalising and makes me feel happy. You can combine it with other oils in the diffuser: try Peppermint to get you out of the slump in the afternoon. Or Lavender to relax and uplift in the evening. In emotional aromatherapy Wild Orange is the oil of Abundance:  It addresses a wide variety of emotional issues. It inspires abundance, fosters creativity, supports a positive mood, restores physical energy and aids in transition. Wild Orange also reconnects individuals with their inner child and brings spontaneity, fun, joy and play into one’s life. ~ excerpt from Emotions and Essential Oils. And who wouldn’t want to feel all of that?img_6209


img_6210img_6223You can find all of these and more recipes on the doTerra blog



The IceBlue/DeepBlue offer applies worldwide: place an oder of 200PV – product points – and receive both products *FREE*. They have a combined retail value of A$105.34

This offer is valid for doTerra members and new customers. Please contact me if you need help placing an order or do not have a doTerra membership yet and want to order some oils and receive the two products for free.

living-sharing-buildingMy intention for this newsletter is to remind you that the natural state of our bodies and minds is to be whole, that we have been created to heal. doTerra’s pure therapeutic essential oils empower us to be in control of our basic healthcare and to regain this wholeness of body, mind and soul.

I would like to invite you to use your oils for this purpose, to share the benefits with others and to join me in the business if you choose.

Please contact me to find out more about doTerra essential oils and how they can make a difference to your wellbeing. Let me know if you’d like to host an essential oils class for your family and friends. And let’s have a chat if you’re interested in joining me to bring health and healing to the world around us.

These essential oils truly are a Gift of the Earth 💜

Best wishes, Nicole xo



Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ February 2017


Welcome to this very late newsletter – since getting back to Perth we’ve experinced such slow internet speed that I could hardly work from home at all let alone write this newsletter. Don’t you wish there was an oil for fixing your internet problems? I certainly do! But since there isn’t we’ll focus on Balance this month – the oil I went to when feeling irritated and frustrated…


Balance – the grounding blend – was one of the first oils that I ordered after my enrolment kit. And it’s been one of my favourites ever since. It has a lovely calming and grounding aroma. And no wonder… it contains Frankincense and Blue Chamomile as well as Spruce and Ho Wood and Blue Tansy. The woody oils have great grounding properties and the flower oils are calming and the Frankincense? Well, that’s the King of Oils anyway (see last month’s newsletter).


So what does this grounding blend do for us? On an emotional level it will give us stability and perseverance. Remember, this blend is primarily a combination of tree oils. Trees live in the present moment. They are not in a hurry. They are stable. So whenever I feel a bit irritated or frustrated this blend helps me to come back to my center – to a state of balance. I also use it during and after a flight. It grounds me and therefore counteracts the feeling of jetlag.

The soft energy of Balance is excellent for calming hyperactive children who have difficulty settling down. This blend also reminds individuals that to realise their true dreams and desires, they must stay focused on a goal until it is actualised in the physical world. Providing inner strength and fortitude, Balance teaches us to ground our energy and to manifest our vision with the patience of a tree.~ excerpt from Emotions & Essential Oils book. Isn’t that a beautiful image? And here are a few more quick facts on Balance, the Grounding Blend:


I usually put a drop on my wrists and also wear it on my diffuser necklace. Because all doTerra oils are for therapeutic use they will not sit on your skin in an oily film. Their purity will allow them to penetrate into your skin and work on a cellular level. So if you want to experience the aroma throughout the day for emotional purposes the oil is best placed on a diffuser necklace or braclet. The porous beads or the layered fabric will absorb the oil and you can keep smelling it for many hours – even up to 2 days.


Some of the diffuser necklaces are made in our women’s co-op in Bali. Please contact me if you would like to order a necklace or bracelet – thanks.


theThis month we’ll also look at Bergamot, Cardamom and Eucalyptus.


Bergamot has a soft citrusy aroma and is used to give Earl Grey tea it’s distinct flavour. Bergamot blends beautifully with lots of other oils to add an uplifting quality to your day:


In emotional aromatherapy Bergamot is the Oil of Self-AcceptanceIt relieves feelings of despair, self-judgement and low self-esteem. It supports the individual in need of self-acceptance and self-love. Bergamot invites individuals to see life with more optimism. ~ excerpt from Emotions & Essential Oils.


Bergamot is also the promotion of the month – any order of Bergamot in February 2017 is 10% off. And you can watch a beautiful little video here



I love the smell and taste of Cardamom. And one thing I particularly love is cardamom in my coffee. So when I got my first bottle of Cardamom oil first thing I did was add a drop to my coffee. And guess what – it was so strong I couldn’t drink it! These oils are so potent that in this case you only need to dip a tooth pick in the oil and then swirl it through your coffee. Or tea or hot chocolate. It adds this beautiful warm spicy taste.

In emotional aromatherapy Cardamom is the Oil of ObjectivityIt helps individuals to regain objectivity, mental sobriety and self-control. It assists individuals who frequently feel frustrated or angry with other people. Cardamom helps to bring balance, mental clarity and objectivity during moments of extreme anger and frustration. ~ excerpt from Emotions & Essential Oils.


Cardamom is very beneficial for the respiratory system and you can add a drop or two along with EasyAir (Breathe) in the diffuser to benefit from its benefits. There’s also a beautiful video about doTerra’s Co-Impact Sourcing program in Guatemala which you can watch here



The doTerra Eucalyptus oil is of course harvested in Australia and has that beautiful fresh scent that we are so familiar with here down under. Eucalyptus is the Oil of WellnessThe strong medicinal aroma of Eucalyptus demonstrates its powerful effect upon the physical and emotional bodies. Eucalyptus oil supports the soul who is constantly facing illness. They may get well for times and seasons, only to return to a common cold, allergies or congestion in the sinuses and respiratory system. Eucalyptus encourages individuals to take full responsibility for their own health~ excerpt from Emotions & Essential Oils.


You can see from the above information how important it is to have a bottle of Eucalyptus oil handy: not only does it aid with all your respiratory problems and congestion it also helps to bring lasting wellness when used in emotional aromatherapy. You can add it to lots of your diffuser blends during flu season or add a drop or two to a Tbs of carrier oil for a foot massage.



Please follow this link to the doTerra Blog where you will find the recipe for the foot mask and lots of other great ideas for oils.



As mentioned earlier, Bergamot is the 10% off oil this month and anyone on the Loyalty Rewards Program receives a free bottle of AromaTouch oil this month when placing their order before the 15th February.

Please let me know if you need help placing an order or accessing the Loyalty Rewards Program.



Send in a picture of a diffuser blend which you made with any of the oils from this newsletter: Balance, Bergamot, Cardamom, Eucalyptus and AromaTouch. The first three entries will receive a special gift.



Some of you might have seen the little videos that Paul and I have been posting on Facebook to share how we use the oils in the Home Essentials Kit. As soon as all our internet problems are resolved we are planning to continue posting videos and also sharing a YouTube channel. You can access our first three videos on my Facebook page

I am also very excited to travel to the U.S. later this month to attend the DoTerra Leadership Retreat in Orlanda, Florida with my team mates over there. And I am looking forward to sharing news from it next month.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to find out more about doTerra essential oils and how they can make a difference to your health and wellbeing. They are a true Gift of the Earth 💜

So, keep using your oils, have fun experimenting a bit, share the beautiful aroma. Best wishes, Nicole xo


Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ January 2017


happy*happy*happy*New *Year*everyone!

We wish you lots of blessings & abundance for 2017 – may your year be filled with love and joy and peace!

With the New Year also comes a new format for this newsletter. We’ll start off with a section focusing on a particular oil, product or way of using the oils. Followed by the ABC of Oils where I introduce three different oils each month. Then we’ll have DIY blends, products and recipes, special promotions and last a monthly challenge with the option to win a prize.


I know that lots of you got a free bottle of Frankincense with your order last month – such a precious gift. And one worth sharing with family and friends: add 15 drops of Frankincense to a 10 ml roller bottle and top up with fractionated coconut oil and pass on to your loved ones. And if you didn’t get a free Frankincense – or would like another free bottle – then here’s the good news: doTerra has extended the offer until 15th January! For more info see ‘Promotions” below.

Frankincense is one of the most versatile essential oils and it’s no wonder Dr. Hill likes to say: ‘when in doubt get the Frankincense out’! Here’s what else Dr. Hill has to say about Frankincense‘Frankincense, considered “liquid gold” of ancient times, is among the most valued essential oils in the world. The use of Frankincense spans across millennia and countless cultures. Traditionally, Frankincense resin was burned as a part of many religious ceremonies. It has also been used for meditation, worship, and many aspects of wellness.’

Frankincense has the following properties: anticatarrhal, anticancer, antidepressant, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antitumor, expectorant, immune stimulant and sedative – Modern Essentials Guide to Essential Oils.

When diffused it’s aromatic influence helps to: focus energy, minimise distractions and improve concentration. It eases hyperactivity, impatience, irritability and restlessness and can help enhance spiritual awareness and meditation – Modern Essentials Guide to Essential Oils.

Frankincense oil Common Primary Uses: Alzheimer’s Disease, Aneurysm, Arthritis, Asthma, Balance, Brain (Aging), Brain Injury, Breathing, Cancer, Coma, Concussion, Confusion, Coughs, Depression, Fibroids, Genital Warts, Hepatitis, Immune System Support, Improve Vision, Infected Wounds, Inflammation, Liver Cirrhosis, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Memory, Mental Fatigue, Miscarriage (After), Moles, MRSA, Multiple Sclerosis, Nasal Polyp, Parkinson’s Disease, Plague, Postpartum Depression, Scarring (Prevention), Tumor (Lipoma), Ulcers, Uterus Tissue Regeneration, Virus of Nerves, Warts, Wrinkles – Modern Essentials Guide to Essential Oils

I get my main dose of Frankincense through the Lifelong Vitality supplements: the Alpha CRS+ supplement contains a standardised extract of Boswellia serrata for boswellic acid that supports healthy cell function. And with healthy cell function comes an overall feeling of vitality and wellness – so important in our busy lives! I also love adding a drop of Frankincense to a tsp of fractionated coconut oil and massaging this luxurious blend into my face and neck after a shower. It makes my skin feel silky smooth. And have you tried drinking Frankincense? I sometimes add just 1 drop to my water bottle and to me it feels the way I imagine liquid silk would feel if you could drink it.

Frankincense is also called the Oil of Truth: Frankincense reveals deceptions and false truths. It helps create new perspectives based on light and truth  and is a powerful cleanser of spiritual darkness. Through connecting the soul with its inner light, this oil reveals the truth. – exert from Emotions & Essential Oils

For more information on Frankincense visit the doTerra webpage

We’ll also have a Frankincense challenge this month. More about that later…


This month I’d like to introduce you to three oils that I love: Arbovitae, Basil and Cypress

screen-shot-2016-12-31-at-5-52-30-pmArbovitae is also called the Oil of Divine Grace: Arbovitae addresses the need to control one’s outcomes in life. It invites individuals to live with peace and joy by trusting in the abundant flow of Divine Grace. – exert from Emotions & Essential Oils

Arbovitae is antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic, anticancer, antitumor, atringent, expectorant, an insect repellent and stimulates the nerves, immune system, uterus and heart muscles – Modern Essentials Guide to Essential Oils. It is also very grounding and I love to diffuse it together with Frankincense and Lime. You can also make a grounding aromatic mist by adding 5 drops each of Arbovitae, Frankincense and Cedarwood to a small spray bottle and filling it up with water.

Here’s a beautiful video about the Co-Impact Sourcing of Arbovitae – also called the Tree of Life.screen-shot-2016-12-31-at-6-22-49-pm

screen-shot-2016-12-31-at-6-40-20-pmBasil is also called the Oil of Renewal: The symptoms of adrenal exhaustion help identify the main moods that are treated with Basil, primarily: overwhelm, fatigue, low energy and the inability to cope with life’s stressors. The smell of Basil oil brings strength to the heart and relaxation to the mind. – exert from Emotions & Essential Oils

I use Basil for earaches: never put essential oils directly into ear canal. Apply 1 drop on surface of the ear and behind ear. Or apply 1 drop to a small cotton ball and place over opening of ear canal – do not press into ear canal.

Basil is a great support for the adrenal glands which sit just above your kidneys. If you feel exhausted and overworked and low in energy try applying a drop of Basil on your back just above the kidneys.

Basil is also recommended for: Bronchitis, Abdominal Cramps, Chronic Fatigue, Frozen Shoulder, Migraines, Muscle Spasms, Mouth Ulcers and more – Modern Essentials Guide to Essential Oils

And a drop of Basil in pasta and pizza sauces or Thai curries adds a yummy fresh taste.


Cypress is also called the Oil of Motion & Flow. I love that. Maybe because I love going with the flow… This powerful oil creates energetic flow and emotional catharsis. Cypress teaches the soul how to let go of the past by moving with the flow of life. It encourages individuals to cast aside their worries and let go of control so they can enjoy the thrill that comes from being alive. – exert from Emotions & Essential Oils

When diffused Cypress creates a feeling of security and grounding. Try a diffuser blend of Cypress, Lavender and Wild Orange to ground, calm and uplift.

Cypress’ properties are: antibacterial, anti-infectious, antimicrobial, mucolytic, antiseptic, astringent, deodorant, diuretic, lymphatic and prostatic decongestant, refreshing, relaxing and vasoconstricting – Modern Essentials Guide to Essential Oils. Looking at this list one gets an idea of how this Oil of Motion & Flow moves along mucus and other body fluids.

PS: Cypress also helps with haemorrhoids. I made a roller bottle of Cypress with fractionated coconut oil for a friend yesterday.


These diffuser blends are so yummy! I can’t decide which one I like best… If you don’t have all the oils required just experiment with what you’ve got.


Please let me know if you need any help with placing an order. The Frankincense offer is also valid for anyone who wants to become a doTerra member and be able to buy oils at member prices.


Okay, who is ready for the first Monthly Challenge?

Since our focus is on Frankincense this month AND we can get another free bottle with our orders before the 15th January let’s have a Frankincense Challenge:

My friend Liz in Arizona shared last month how she experimented with taking 2 drops of Frankincense under the tongue every morning and this is what happened:


So, if you’re up for a challenge let’s all try taking 2 drops of Frankincense under the tongue for one week and see how it effects us. You can email me the feedback and I will draw 3 winners who will receive a surprise gift from me.


*LIVING* – please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding the oils, how to order or how to become a member and access member prices.

*SHARING* – I’ll be in Melbourne and Tasmania between the 16th – 26th January and back in Perth from the 27th January to 20th February. If  you have experienced the extraordinary effects of doTerra Essential Oils first hand and would love to share them with family and friends then make sure to book a class during the above dates and I’ll come to your place with my big oil box and a special host gift for you! A class can be for just one friend or for a group of people – anyone you’d think would benefit from the oils.

*BUILDING* – I am also still looking for committed and enthusiastic people who would like to partner with me in this business to create financial freedom for themselves through residual income. I feel so blessed to be working with a company like doTerra whose mission it is to change the world and who have created a thriving business model in these difficult economic times by being inspiring leaders who care about the welfare and health care about everyone who comes in contact with them. Make sure to talk to me if this resonates with you!


Last but not least… we still have a couple of spots in our *soulful escape to bali* retreat in March this year. Check out our website and join us for a creative retreat in Bali’s cultural center. As part of the retreat you will receive an AromaTouch massage and a doTerra gift.

With lots of love and warm greetings from Bali, Nicole xo

Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ December 2016


Dear friends,

here’s the last newsletter for 2016! And it’s full of wonderful aromatic gift ideas – to make yourself or to purchase. And as a very generous gift from doTerra you can get a free bottle of Frankincense with your order this month! But more about that later… Let’s start with some gift ideas…


I always start with 1:1 dry and oil ingredients. For example: mix 1 cup of either

  • organic sugar or
  • sea salt or epsom salts or
  • half coffee half sugar

with 1 cup of organic coconut oil. Then adjust the mixture if necessary with more dry ingredients if it’s too oily or more oil if it’s too crumbly (see pictures above).

Last add 15 drops of your favourite essential oils like:

  • 10 drops grapefruit and 5 drops spearmint
  • 15 drops wild orange
  • 5 drops each ginger, lime and grapefruit
  • 15 drops geranium

Experiment with your own combinations. Ylang-Ylang, Patchouli, Lavender… Choose a nice jar (great for recycling jam jars) and add a festive label. Use in the shower on wet body.


Bath salts are really easy to make and such a great present – imagine soaking your feet or whole body in one of these soothing aromas:

Mix 1 cup of epsom salts with 10 drops of your favourite essential oils. Try:

  • Citrus Bliss
  • Balance
  • 7 drops Lavender and 3 drops Peppermint
  • 4 drops of Wild Orange and 3  drops each of Clove and Cinnamon

or any other combination you like. Fill into nice jars or clear Christmas ornaments. To use add 1/4 cup – 1/2 cup of Epsom salt to bath water or 1-2 Tbs to foot bath.


Any order placed this month that is worth 200PV or more receives a free bottle of Frankincense worth over $114 retail – how generous is that? In addition you can also receive a free bottle of Holiday Joy if you place an LRP order before the 15th December worth 125PV or more.

Please let me know if you need any help placing an order.

The free Frankincense is also available for new members who enrol with a minimum of 200PV – again, let me know if you need help with that.

If you would like to give the gift of wellbeing this Christmas and purchase one of the many doTerra kits for a friend or family member please contact me to receive a special gift for yourself.


There’s also a beautiful Holiday Gift Guide here

I wish you all a magical Advent time and a blessed Festive Season -time spent in peace and harmony with family and loved ones.

And I am looking forward to sharing more essential oil news with you all in 2017.

Best Wishes and much love, Nicole
