Declutter your Life

With a brand new year, the desire to downsize, live with less, and declutter starts to take over. More often than not, we as mothers, roll with it, fully intending to get rid of things, donate, and have that garage sale. In the midst of it all, sometimes overwhelm creeps in and we lose sight of what it is that we want. Today, I'm sharing some of my favorite tips to help you start to declutter your life.

So... here you are, finding yourself overwhelmed to no avail, and I’m sure you feel like your home looks like a hurricane just blasted on through. Don’t worry, I’m going to help you tackle the mess, and even help you tackle those tiny toddler tornadoes that spin out of control all over the place!

One of the first things I wanted to share with you, and probably the most important thing I am going to share with you, is to give yourself grace throughout this journey. I can’t help you out if you aren’t going to be kind to yourself in the process. This means that if you are starting on one of your projects, you simply cannot allow the negative voices to become your peanut gallery, or anti-cheerleading section. It's time to tell that negative voice in your head, the one that tells you you're not _____ enough or your _____ is too big, or too small... you know the voice... it's time to tell her to get a life. You don't need to listen to her negativity anymore.

Think about it. If your best girlfriend was sitting next to you, and she was telling you out loud... all of those negative things that you tell yourself, would you still want to be friends with her? I don't think anyone would want to stay friends with someone that was constantly crushing their self worth and self esteem. So why do we continue to do this to ourselves?

I hope you look your beautiful self in the mirror today and tell her how much you love her. I mean it. Go look yourself in the mirror. See your beautiful eyes... they have seen so much. See your smile... your smile has brought joy to so many people in this world. You are an incredible woman and you deserve to feel, love, joy and happiness. Can you see how vital this is to your success in taking care of the things going on around you? I used to think that “Self Care” was so hard, and that I didn’t have time for any of that stuff. I had so much to do and not enough hours in the day to get any of it done.

In reality, I would be productive, but I was stressed out, I was grumpy, and I wasn’t truly able to serve my family from a place of gratitude with all that grouchiness I was carrying with me. As soon as I realized what a difference it made in my own happiness, and of course my family’s, I made a promise to myself that I would never cut out my self care again, and that I wouldn’t let negativity plague my mind anymore. I committed to tea, quiet time, reading inspirational texts, journaling, devotionals, coffee, a yummy breakfast, vitamins, lighting candles, yoga and meditative breathing. I don’t do all of everything, every day, but I do the things I know are going to fulfill me and bring me the energy I need to take on what my planner says. I also doing beat myself up when things don’t go according to plan. I cannot even begin to tell you how terrible a habit this was for me. I definitely have glued on the perfectionist hat before, and still to this day I’m prying off pieces of that hat from my head. It’s totally ok to see your self care for the day as taking a few deep breaths, sleeping in for another 20 mins, or a quiet soak in the bath tub.

Don’t turn your self care into a chore. When we stop and really think about it, and think about where we are limiting ourselves, and putting up road blocks, we can get a clearer vision of where we can begin our self care.

  • Are you more prone to negative thinking?
  • Are you more prone to procrastination?
  • Are you making excuses for why you cannot do certain things?
  • Are you limiting your self with your beliefs about what you can and cannot do?

If you identify with any of this, I challenge you to ask yourself, “Is this serving me in any way?” Recently, I had a morning, facetime coffee visit with my mom, and we were chatting about this topic in particular. Seeing as my mom has been around 28 years longer than I, I know and truly value the wisdom she has to share. It was obvious then, that I share some of her insight on this topic.

Here is what my mother Martina had to say,

“When you are looking to overcome your own obstacles inside your head as to why you cannot do the things that are ‘overwhelming’ you... you can come up with all these reasons why you can’t do these things. BUT, all you need is to find one positive, to drive you forward. Don’t concentrate on the act of doing something, concentrate on the result. Stop making excuses, and stop giving yourself all these reasons why things are hard. Why can’t you make it fun or enjoyable? Once we stop making a mountain out of a molehill, things begin to flow.”

And it is so true, it all begins inside. If you were expecting some crazy organization techniques today, to help you declutter your life, I'm sorry to disappoint you. When it comes to decluttering, it needs to start from inside of us. I can’t tell you that it is going to be easy to rewrite old thought patterns, and the negative programming you have lived in before, but I can tell you that it will be worth it once you are on the other side of that. Don’t you want to see what that woman looks like?

The woman who wakes with ease and energy for her day...

The woman who can happily tend to her children when they need her...

The woman who can be strong and supportive of her spouse...

This can be you. It all comes with starting from the inside. Mind you, you don’t need to show up as this woman every day, but I’m sure if you show up in this way 90% of the time, you and those around you are going to find so much more to be grateful for.

Let’s talk about some practical steps you can take to work on framing your positive mindset, and starting a morning routine that will set you up for a successful day. I’m going to lay out the foundation of my morning routine for you, so you can add to it, take from it, and make it your own. Remember, this is a foundation, you don’t have to do things the way that I do them, or even remotely similar. The key here is to tackle a few little chores (makes you feel productive) and of course your self care (makes you feel good!) so that you can take on whatever lies ahead.

  • Make the bed
  • Tea/Coffee/Honey Lemon Water
  • Inspirational Reading/Devotional (1-2 pages)
  • Check your Planner/Calendar Get fully dressed (shoes included!)
  • Face care/make up (if you wear it)
  • Swish the toilet bowl(s)
  • Eat Breakfast
  • Empty your dishwasher
  • Start a load of laundry
  • Move your body (yoga/walk/exercise)

Maybe this seems like a big list to you. Maybe it seems completely feasible for you right now. Whatever the case, I want you to put something together for yourself that you feel comfortable with. Remember you don’t need to do all of this at once.

It actually took me a month to filter all of this into a regular working schedule. To be honest, this doesn’t take more than 90 minutes of my morning. If you are fortunate enough to have late risers in your home, you can get it all done before they wake up! If not, you have the option of getting up early for quiet time to yourself, or letting everyone know that mommy is going to do her morning routine and you can help when you are finished. Because this routine doesn’t take me very long, it also gives me the ability to stop and take care of my hubby or son if they need something.

Do what works for you, but you gotta start somewhere. I hope this list has given you a tangible starting point so that the physical decluttering flows into your routine more easily. Remember, be kind to yourself. If you are still getting into the swing of things, give yourself grace. “I may not have done everything on my list, but I am taking care of myself, I am taking care of my family, and I am an incredible woman.” This is not about inundating yourself with more things to do, it is about finding peace of mind in getting clutter out of your head, out of your home, and establishing a routine so you can enjoy being a mother.

Don’t let those negative voices get you down, and if they do, remember that I believe in you.

Melaleuca

More commonly known as "Tea Tree Oil", Melaleuca is widely used all over the world! We use Melaleuca in our home regularly and it's great for so many different reasons! When I was a teenager I used Melaleuca regularly to help cleanse and support my changing skin. I wish doTERRA had been around back then, as I know using a pure oil works SO much better!

If you have used Tea Tree (Melaleuca) oil before, then you know about its amazing benefits. If you haven't, you're sure to find a use that will make you definitely want to add this wonderful oil to your collection. Did you know that Melaleuca oil is good for oral health? Add 3–4 drops of Melaleuca on your toothbrush before adding toothpaste, then brush teeth and gums to promote a clean, healthy mouth.

Diffusing Tea Tree oil can help purify and freshen the air in your home. When diffusing Melaleuca oil on its own, use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice. Looking for a revitalizing diffuser blend that will freshen and purify any room? Add 2 drops of Lemon, 2 drops of Eucalyptus, 1 drop of Melaleuca, and 1 drop of Peppermint to your diffuser for a rejuvenating diffuser bend that will cleanse the air and awaken your senses.

Like I mentioned, Melaleuca is best known for its purifying qualities and its cleansing and rejuvenating effects on the skin. After shaving, apply Melaleuca to keep skin looking smooth, healthy, and free of irritations. Did you know that Tea Tree oil is in 12 of doTERRA's kits? This is a great, versatile oil to have on hand. In Australia, Melaleuca is the third most diverse plant genus with over 250 species. It belongs in the myrtle family, commonly known as paperbarks, honey-myrtles or tea-trees.

Make this soothing DIY Foot Balm made with Melaleucaoil to moisturize your feet overnight. Do your makeup brushes need some deep cleaning? Tea Tree oil’s benefits for skin and cleansing properties come together in this Makeup Brush Cleanser. Over time, your makeup brushes get covered in old makeup and dead skin cells. If you don’t want to be spreading that all over your face, you’ll need to give your brushes a good cleaning every once in a while. With just three simple ingredients, including Tea Tree essential oil, you can concoct a purifying makeup brush cleanser that will get rid of gunk and germs—restoring your makeup brushes to their former glory.

I would love to know what your favorite way to use Melaleuca is! Share with me and rave all about it!

Laundry Essentials

Whether you have a toddler who loves to make messes, teenagers who constantly produce dirty socks and uniforms, or you just find yourself doing a lot of laundry throughout the week, the doTERRA On Guard Laundry Detergent will make 64 loads of laundry feel like a breeze. This detergent is one of the most used dōTERRA products in our house. I really enjoy using this detergent because of the amazing cleaning properties as well as the nice scent it leaves on the clothes. The best part about this detergent is probably how potent it is, and a little bit goes a long way!

One of the greatest benefits of the doTERRA On Guard Laundry Detergent is that it utilizes essential oils to clean your clothes and leave them with a fresh, pleasant scent. Essential oils like Wild Orange, Cinnamon, and Eucalyptus are commonly used in cleaning products because of their cleansing properties and invigorating aroma. Each bottle of doTERRA On Guard Laundry Detergent includes 10mL of the proprietary doTERRA On Guard blend (a value of $28.00) to leave your clothes with a refreshing, clean scent.

With sports and school starting, your family needs a trusted way to remove any and all stains. Look no further because dōTERRA’s On Guard laundry Detergent is here to save the day! Not only can it clean all your clothes, it can act as a natural stain remover so you can target problem areas in a natural way. All you have to do is use a small amount of the detergent directly on the stained area. Leave it sitting for 3-10 minutes and then wash as directed. Easy, right? With particularly stubborn stains, you can re-apply the detergent before the clothing is dry, and then repeat the wash cycle. After you repeat the wash cycle, let the piece of clothing dry before applying additional stain treatment. Like with any stain remover, it is wise to test the detergent for colorfastness in a small area before treating. This detergent is so effective, you only need to add one tablespoon to your load for the most effective results.

In addition to the use of CPTG high quality essential oils, the doTERRA On Guard Laundry Detergent formula includes other natural ingredients to give users a safe, natural solution for cleaning clothes and lifting stains. The carefully designed formula includes surfactants, stabilizers, and enzymes from natural-based, sustainable sources, so not only is the doTERRA On Guard Laundry Detergent a safe alternative for your family, but it is a more environmentally-friendly option as well. The formula uses a unique combination of natural-based, bio-originated enzymes and a preservative stabilizer made from corn, so you can be sure that you are using a product that is safe for any member of your family.

With natural ingredients, the doTERRA On Guard Laundry Detergent works on a variety of washable fabrics at all temperatures and is color safe as well. This powerful formula makes each bottle of doTERRA On Guard Laundry Detergent useful for up to 64 loads of laundry. I love that it pairs so well with Wool Dryer Balls, and you can have your clothing super clean and fresh, without dowsing them with chemicals.

Siberian Fir

I am super excited to share about our new Fir oil, Siberian Fir! What's that you say? Why do we need another Fir oil? White Fir has sold out as we can't get it in the sustainable sourcing that we want, or the quantity and quality we want. The great news about this... Siberian Fir has more prominent chemistry than White Fir and provides a wealth of benefits that can also be enjoyed by internal consumption! Yay!

Siberian Fir can positivity affect many body systems, and is recommended for topical, aromatic and internal use. This is exciting as this will be our first Fir oil that is recommended for internal support! Why don't we take a look at some of the ways we can use Siberian Fir:

Aromatic:

  • Diffuser Siberian Fir to evoke feelings of relaxation and rest.
  • Inhale to soothe dry airways. A little goes a long way here, Siberian Fir is a powerful oil!
  • Use in combination with rosemary, eucalyptus, cypress for lime for clarifying aroma and respiratory support.

Topical:

  • Apply Siberian Fir to sooth skin irritations (rash, overstressed tissues, wound, bites)
  • Apply to calm overactive tissues and ease discomfort
  • Blend with Melaleuca (tea tree), Cedarwood, or floral oils to eliminate blemishes and healthy skin.

Internal:

  • Use 1-3 drops in a capsule to support body systems
  • Siberian Fir has been used in a variety of different foods as a flavoring agent

Home Cleaning:

  • Combine with Citrus oils for surface cleansing

There you have it! Siberian Fir is a wonderful new addition to doTERRA's permanent product line. This oil will be available for purchase as of October 2nd, 2017, and the pricing is as such:

Retail: $26.67 Wholesale: $20.00

If you would like to become a Wholesale Customer, you can do that at any time to make sure you are purchasing at the lowest price!

Purify

Today, I'm sharing about an exciting essential oil blend called Purify! If you have anything stinky in your home, (including teenagers!) you're going to love this oil blend! Our Purify Cleansing Blend is great for removing odors. urify contains Lemon, Lime, and Pine essential oils, known for their powerful cleaning properties, along with Siberian and Austrian Firs to purify the air and protect against environmental threats. The addition of Citronella, Melaleuca, and Cilantro give this blend an enticing aroma that’s uniquely doTERRA and unmatched in purification properties.

Purify is an exclusive combination of essential oils that purify and eradicate odors in a natural, safe way. This uplifting blend combines citrus and pine essential oils that leave an airy, fresh scent on surfaces and in the air. You can also use Purify to soothe away irritations from bug bites! This is one of the main ways we utilize this oil, as we live in the mountains right now!

For an easy and natural alternative to deodorant, try putting Purify diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil under your arm. With all the different food items, it’s only natural to have a smelly fridge, right? Well, not anymore! These easy to make fridge refreshers are a simple way to deodorize your refrigerator without the use of toxic cleaners.

Another quick and easy recipe for your home is, to fill a glass spray bottle with 5 drops Purify, 3/4 cups distilled water, and 2 tablespoons rubbing alcohol. Use on your furniture and blankets to eliminate odors in your home!

Diffusing Purify essential oil blend helps eradicate unpleasant odors and clears the air. It also has a refreshing aroma, that I find to be very uplifting and cheerful! To use, just apply 2-3 drops in a diffuser and enjoy.

DIY Carpet Cleaner Recipe

Put equal parts of Borax and Baking Soda (we did 1/4 cup of each here) together and mix in 10 drops of Purify Essential Oil or another essential oil of your choice. Put the mixture in an empty container and sprinkle over your carpet. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes and then vacuum your carpet to leave it fresh and clean!

https://youtu.be/3uQ7cr1w7ws

The bathroom is another place where stinky odors tend to linger. Here are a few of my Purify hacks to keep that area smelling fresh and clean!

  • Add 4-5 drops of Purify to a cotton ball and place inside the toilet paper roll
  • Add 4-5 drops of Purify to a faux plant in your bathroom
  • Create a bathroom spray with Purify, and leave for your guests to use
  • Add Purify to your Cleaning Spray to leave the bathroom with that fresh aroma

There you have it! Are you excited to use Purify? Have you tried this oil blend before? I can't wait to hear what you think about it!

Sanity through Cleaning

I’m going to be honest, I didn’t used to be a huge fan of cleaning, but I have always been a big fan of living in a clean space. Over the course of the last few years, I have come to love cleaning more and more. Finding peace through the act of cleaning spaces. I’m not talking about decluttering, although, there is a great sense of peace that comes with that for me… I’m talking about actual “chores” like dusting, vacuuming, wiping down surfaces, mopping, scrubbing, etc.

It’s almost weird, when I think about it, how much it irked me to do these things years ago, and now… I find such solitude and a measure of sanity through it. Let’s be real… the endless sea of “mommy” that I hear and swim through all day is enough to drive a person nuts. For real. My son can “mommy” at about 13 times a minute. I’m not proud of it, but I actually paid him a dollar for 2 minutes of silence. The cleaning, not only keeps germs at bay and our spaces sparkling, but it helps me to stop and take time to appreciate the roof over my head.

I also try to load up my Monday to the point where it could be considered crazy. I do this because then the rest of the week I just do a bit of routine swish, swipe, scrub and call it good. It helps me give myself permission to relax a bit and slow the heck down. I can focus on the things that are important to me, like reading, going on walks with my son, spending quality time with my husband.

Moving... again? Not quite yet...

Moving is such a pain, am I right?! The boxes, the mess, the cleaning...ugh! The to-do list is miles long, and it's always somewhat impossible to keep everything organized. We are planning to move back to Colorado in 2018 (yay! my heart is leaping with oodles of joy!) and we are already starting to de-clutter, konmari, and downsize. We have been diffusing and rolling on a bunch of Motivate... let me tell ya! I wanted to share some valuable moving tips and some cute printables that make the job easier! Add Motivate essential Oil to your diffuser and roll on your wrists to keep you going on Moving Day! Below are 3 products that are going to help move you forward as well!

I recently came across a new product from The Dating Divas called "The Ultimate Moving Organization Kit". I took a peek and thought it actually looked awesome, so I had to share it with you!

Day in my Oily Life

It's 6am... and my Fitbit is vibrating. My alarm is going off and it's telling me I need to get out of bed. If it's a rest day, I stay in bed and snuggle with my hubby for another hour and a half. If it's any other day of the week, I'm up and ready to workout. Will it be Pilates? Yoga? TERRAfit? All depends on my mood, and if I'm participating in a current challenge. Either way, I put some motivate (or Peppermint and Wild Orange) in the diffuser, a drop of peppermint in my hands and on my chest, and I get moving. A couple drops of Lemon oil in my water, and I'm feeling refreshed. Afterward, I spend some time reading, journaling, and thinking about how I want my day to go. I open up my planner and take a look at what's going on. Some days I like a nice soak in the bath, with a floral essential oil (like Lavender, Rose, Clary Sage or Jasmine) and other days I hop in the shower. Breakfast includes my Lifelong Vitality supplements, and TerraZyme. Sometimes Brien makes us Trimshake Protein pancakes for breakfast... and I really like those! Brien and I both clean up the kitchen with our DIY cleaning products, and move on with the day. Since we homeschool Daen, we take a look at what he is interested in that day, and help foster that interest.

I spend anywhere from 2-8 hours working on my business. It depends what day of the week it is, how much I am looking to accomplish, and the plans my family I have. I make sure to block out time for my business everyday. It's so important to cultivate balance in our lives, because when you work from home,  it is easy to let others dictate your time... if you don't set your hours. I also love to have a diffuser going while I am working. Depending on the kind of atmosphere I want to create, it could be a variety of oils I blend together, a specific oil that I am using for emotional support and benefits, or a new blend of oils I'm feeling inspired to try out.

Daen gets oils when he needs them. Sometimes he is in need of some emotional support as well. Growing toddlers have so many emotions that they aren't sure how to use, so we try to help him as best we can. Balance is a favorite for us, it's perfect for the back of his neck and the bottoms of his feet. As I'm sure you know, lots of little moments happen throughout the day, and I love having our oils on hand to support us through them.

At the end of the day, my husband and I start the bedtime routine. Console goes in Daen's diffuser, and I use my Lavender touch roller on the bottoms of his feet, my own, and my husband's. Story time, a song, and then lights out. Lately I have been putting Wild Orange and Breathe in our bedroom diffuser in the evening, but I also love Serenity. Closing my eyes after a full day of life, love, and essential oils, I am grateful.

 

My favorite Home Recipes

We all love to have a clean home, that feels warm and inviting, especially when we are expecting guests over! I love making my own products to keep my home sparkling clean, and aromatic to boot! I think my favorite part about the whole DIY with essential oils, is that I know exactly what ingredients are in my products, and I'm not afraid to get them on my skin if I make an oopsie. With so many "green" options out there, sometimes labeling can be misleading, and also offer a variety of ingredients that you don't actually need to be putting on your countertops, it's comforting to know that I am minimizing the toxic load in our living environment on a daily basis. I am sure this is something you would like to cultivate in your living space as well. SO... with that, I will share a few of my favorite recipes with you!

A quick and easy fix is to throw a couple drops each of Lemon and Rosemary into your diffuser, 10-15 minutes before you expect company. If you are in a pinch and someone is showing up in 5 minutes, add the oils to your diffuser. It will still give of the aroma, it just won't cover the entire space before they arrive. For an even shorter time crunch, plug the diffuser into an outlet that is closest to your front door entry so it is the first thing they smell when they enter your home.

A super cool ingredient that I have recently added to my all purpose spray, is actually a PB Assist+ capsule. Yes! A probiotic! I have been doing some reading about cleaning with probiotics and I figured I would give it a go, with the best probiotic I know about! PB Assist+ is a proprietary formula of pre-biotic fiber and six strains of probiotic microorganisms in a unique double-layer vegetable capsule. It delivers 6 billion CFUs of active probiotic cultures and soluble pre-biotic FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides) that encourage friendly bacterial growth*.

When you aren't adding this amazing ingredient to your all purpose spray, here are the benefits of internal consumption of PB Assist:

PB Assist

  • Promotes a positive balance and proliferation of beneficial bacteria*
  • Maintains healthy intestinal microflora balance*
  • Supports healthy functioning of the digestive and immune systems*
  • Supports the health of the GI tract, particularly the intestines and colon*
  • Helps support optimal metabolism and absorption of food*

Arborvitae

Arborvitae, is an incredible oil! It is very grounding and is known as the "Tree of Life". It is native to Canada and has a zero waste process in it's extraction process. There are many ways to utilize this oil in your home! With natural preservation properties, essential oil from the native Canadian Arborvitae tree acts as a powerful cleansing and purifying agent, while providing a warm, earthy aroma.

From a scientific standpoint, Arborvitae is concentrated in tropolones, such as hinokitiol, which are a group of chemical compounds that protect against environmental and seasonal threats and have powerful purifying properties. These compounds also contribute to Arborvitae’s natural insect repellent properties. Thujic acid, another tropolone found in Arborvitae, has been studied for its ability to protect against common threats in the environment. Because of its natural preserving properties, Arborvitae prevents wood from rotting, which makes it popular in woodcraft and for preserving natural wood surfaces.

When using arborvitae to address your emotions, arborvitae will help to promote peaceful feelings of feeling grounded, and allowing you to relax. Let's take a look at some of the wonderful things Arborvitae has to offer you.

ARBORVITAE

  • Protects against environmental and seasonal threats
  • Powerful cleansing and purifying agent
  • Natural insect repellent and wood preservative
  • Add a few drops to a spray bottle with water and spray on surfaces or hands to protect against environmental threats.
  • Apply to wrists and ankles while hiking.
  • Diffuse to purify the air and to repel insects inside the home.
  • Mix 4 drops of Arborvitae essential oil and 2 drops of Lemon essential oil for a natural wood preservative and polish.
  • Use during meditation for a sense of peace and calm.

 

WOOD POLISH RECIPE

DIY Dryer Balls

Recently, I got together with my mom for a fun little date and we made wool dryer balls!  The dryer balls replace your need for a fabric softener AND dryer sheets. Not only do they soften your clothing, BUT when you add essential oils, they leave a lovely fragrance, that is entirely chemical free! Sounds good to me! SO, how do you make them?

 

MATERIALS

-one or two rolls of 100% wool yarn. (It must be 100% wool, or the yarn will not felt together and you will have a stringy mess.)

-tights, pantyhose, or nylons. If you have an old pair with runs in them, it's preferable because you can reuse it!

-your favorite bottle of essential oil (we have been using Elevation for our Laundry!)

-pair of scissors

 

Ok, once you have all your necessary items it's time to get started!

 

DIRECTIONS

1. Take the end of the yarn and wrap it around your middle and index finger 10 times. Remove it from the fingers and wrap 2-3 times around the middle. (It should look like a bow) This will be the start of your ball.

2. Continue tightly wrapping the yarn around the start, working toward making a round shape. Once your ball is roughly the size of a tennis ball, cut the yarn and tuck the end into the sides of the ball. Repeat this process until you have created four or more balls of yarn.elevation_15ml_high_res_image_us_english

3. Cut one leg off the pantyhose. Place one ball into the bottom of the leg and tie a knot right above the ball to secure it into place. Repeat until all the balls have been added and secured. 4. Once the balls are tightly secured in the panty hose, put them in the washer (can be with a load of dirty laundry) and wash on the hottest setting. This will allow the yarn to felt. Felting will make the yarn fuse together, resulting in a solid ball. Once washed, dry the balls thoroughly in the dryer at the highest heat setting.

5. After the balls are completely dry, remove them from the pantyhose and they are ready for use! Before drying your next load of laundry, add your favorite essential oil to 4-6 dryer balls, toss them in the dryer, and enjoy the soft, fluffy, wonderful-smelling fruits of your labor. (2-3 drops per ball should last a few loads. Add more for a stronger scent)

And that's how you do it! How did it work for you? Let me know!

  • Foodborne Problems Beware. Oregano has properties that can counteract the effects of improper food handling practices, preparation or food storage. Combined with regular hand washing, Oregano has been known to be effective in contributing to the healthiness of foods.

For a clean toothbrush, store it overnight in a small glass of water with 3-5 drops of the On Guard.
  • Got a Pull-Out Kitchen Cabinet Garbage Bin? Garbage inside a dark cabinet is an ideal breeding ground for horrific odors. When you take out the garbage, spray down your cabinet with On Guard and water. On Guard Cleaner Concentrate (my favorite!) is also excellent for this purpose.
  • Eradicate That Oven Cleaner Smell. Caked on black oven gunk does not easily come off. After your oven’s self-clean cycle, spray a mix of purified water, On Guard and Lemon essential oil onto the oven interior. This will clear up all of the greasy smells as well as the smell of the oven cleaner!
  • Gym Machines Will Thank You. Before climbing on to that sweaty vinyl at the gym, spray it with On Guard and water. Wipe down like you mean it. Your sweaty comrades will thank you.

  • When you Realize You’re Not 18 Anymore. You’ve over-exerted yourself playing basketball like the good ‘ole days, and it happens! Apply Deep Blue followed by a warm compress to support healthy blood flow and promote a healthy inflammatory response.

15 Uses for Breathe

  • The ‘On Ramp’ to Sleep. For a more restful sleep during seasonal respiratory discomfort, diffuse Breathe blend at bedtime or keep in a roll-on bottle by the bedside, in the car or your purse. Roll it on the chest, bottom of feet or upper lip as needed!
  • Feel Clear and Free. Put a drop of the Breathe blend and a drop of Wintergreen essential oil in a sink of hot water. Then, place a damp towel over your head and inhale deeply. It’s surprising how much this helps!
  • Working Out in a Building? Forced heating and cooling, sweaty bodies, dust and your lungs…bad combo. Apply Breathe blend before exercising to invigorate and enhance breathing during your workout.
  • It’s Like a Rain Maker. Hiking in nature right after an air cleansing rain is an absolute dream. The next time you can’t control the rain, try applying Breathe blend. It’s the next best thing!
  • Leavin’ on a Jet Plane, Bus or Train? Confined spaces can sometimes have stagnant air, which can be claustrophobic. While in these spaces, free yourself mentally and emotionally by applying Breathe blend.
  • Stuck in a Desk, Small Office or Cube? It’s easy and convenient to just place a drop of Breathe in your palm, rub the palms together and take a deep breath from your cupped hands. Supporting healthy airways will improve your concentration. It may help everyone around you relax too!
  • A College Dorm Room Fix. College dorm rooms aren’t known for their vast size or light airy appeal. When you combine a ‘first-time on their own’ roommate with unknown cooking preferences, sweaty workout clothes, or interesting hygiene habits, Breathe is the great equalizer and your best friend.
  • It’s a Zoo in Here! Staying at someone else’s home, with someone else’s pets (with their aroma, dander or musty smell) doesn’t need to be a problem. Try rubbing Breathe on your chest and under your nose before entering a pet filled house. Great for musty campers and RVs as well.
  • Boost Brain Power. Breathe contains Eucalyptus essential oil which is known to help stimulate mental activity and wake up your mind. The powerfully beneficial oils of Peppermint, Lemon, and Melaleuca are all included in the Respiratory blend and are perfect if you are feeling under the weather.
  • One Of Mom’s Bag Of Tricks. Place a couple drops on the pillow of any child who needs the Breathe but refuses to apply the oil. The oil helps to distract them from whatever reason she can’t sleep, and helps maintain breathing. Oh, and the added benefit is that mom and dad get to rest as well!
  • Another Tool In Your Habit Breaking Arsenal. Overcoming nagging habits is tricky to say the least. Occasionally lingering side effects affect breathing. Breathe will help you kick bad habits by promoting easier breathing while maintaining lung and throat health.
  • A Dynamic Duo. Put a drop of Breathe on the filter of the CPAP machine for even more support during the night. Even without a CPAP machine it’s good to keep a roller bottle of Breathe nearby to swipe on the chest and under the nose of whoever is keeping you awake by snoring gone ballistic.
  • Help For Your Airways. When You Have Cold Feet in the Winter. A popular way to warm your tootsies in the winter is to warm a cloth bag (filled with rice or feed corn kernels) in the microwave and place it at the foot of your bed at night. Add a few drops of Breathe in the bag to make it an aromatically soothing experience as well, promoting open airways.
  • No Gadgetry Required. Diffusing is great, but when you don’t have a diffuser handy, simply add a drop of both Breathe and Frankincense into the palm off your hand. Then, make a fist with a small opening over the oils and breathe in through your fist. This simple technique does wonders!
  • An Invigorated Senior Citizen’s Home. Let’s face it, as we citizens become senior, our energy and passion to make things fresh and invigorating may wane. A senior care center or rest home does not have to smell like one. By simply diffusing Breathe, you can change the whole feeling of the place—and make it a more pleasant experience for residents as well as visitors.
