Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ February 2017

image

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…

image

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).

image

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:

image

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.

image

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.

image

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:

image

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.

image

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

 

image.jpg

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.

image

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

 

image

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.

image

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.

Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ January 2017

15857396_10154595577068145_1503397581_o

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.

focusscreen-shot-2016-12-31-at-5-13-40-pm

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…

the

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.

screen-shot-2016-12-31-at-7-06-38-pm

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.

diyuntitled-design-3

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.

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!

Nicole’s doTerra Newsletter ~ December 2016

15292613_10154475610478145_1506360394_o

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…

diy-essential-oil-giftssugar-salt-and-coffee-body-scrubs

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.

15368826_10154493455113145_1971824482_o

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.

untitled-design-215409580_10154496756823145_301936594_o

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.

15369682_10154496814103145_1929312440_omake-your-own-spritzer-bottlesAll of the above oils are great in the diffuser as well.

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

screen-shot-2016-11-04-at-10-52-00-am

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.

screen-shot-2016-11-04-at-12-46-58-pm

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

14954534_10154397740028145_1238543698_o

 

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:
choose-a-host-gift-plus-receive-a-free-bottle-of-oil-for-every-person-who-enrols-with-a-kit-at-your-class14971084_10154397420748145_1274375888_o

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

image

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 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.

October promotions:

image

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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:

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.

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
