Daily Health Habits Challenge

Can you believe it's April? Whoohoo! I am so excited for what is to come in the month of April! (psst... there might be some freebies in store for you!) Before we dive into the awesome specials doTERRA is offering this month, I wanted to share a little bit about Copaiba essential oil!

An exceptional addition to the resinous oils doTERRA offers, Copaiba is extracted from copaiba trees in the Amazon rainforest. The Amazon rainforest represents over half of the planet’s remaining rainforests. doTERRA is proud to partner with a large network of copaiba harvesters that sustainably collect their oleoresin and ensure that the trees will be around for years to come. The essential oil is steam distilled from the copaiba oleoresin, a substance made up of resin and essential oils. The collection process of the oleoresin is unique among essential oils—it is tapped from the tree in a similar way to how maple trees are for their syrup. The oleoresin is then steam distilled to produce the essential oil.

Copaiba’s main chemical component is beta-caryophyllene, a chemical similar to cannabinoids found in cannabis that may protect nerve cells and have benefits for the cardiovascular and immune systems.

Copaiba Essential Oil

  • Add 1 to 2 drops to water, juice, or tea to support the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and respiratory system.
  • Provides antioxidant support when ingested.
  • Take internally to help soothe and calm the nervous system.
  • Apply topically combined with a carrier oil or a facial moisturizer to help keep skin clean and clear, and to help reduce the appearance of blemishes.
  • Supports the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive and respiratory systems

Copaiba blends well with Roman Chamomile, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Frankincense, or Ylang Ylang. Using any of these oils that appeal to you, create your own personal fragrance in a roller bottle, and then fill the rest of the bottle with Fractionated Coconut Oil. And... to top it off, Copaiba trees can grow to more than 100 feet tall! How cool is that?!

APRIL Specials!

Slim & Sassy Habits

A few days ago I wrote about Creating Healthy Habits in another post. I really wanted to drive home some healthy habits that you can make with Slim & Sassy, and the line of Slim & Sassy Products. Your body is a temple, and being proactive about your health keeps it in working order! Instead of focusing on what we put in our bodies today, next week, or even next month, we should ask ourselves how do we want to look, act, and feel years from now. dōTERRA® Slim & Sassy® is not a diet, but one step toward choosing a lifestyle change. It addresses weight-gain at its source, giving you the energy and confidence you need to become your best self.

Tips for Success: 

  1. Take the Lifelong Vitality pack!
  2. Write down specific goals with specific deadlines. Be realistic.
  3. Find someone that will hold you accountable and be encouraging.
  4. Use five drops of Slim & Sassy Metabolic Blend five times a day.
  5. Replace one to two meals with the Slim & Sassy TrimShakes.
  6. Drink lots of water with Lemon essential oil.
  7. Exercise at least five days a week.
  8. Get rid of your big clothes immediately! Reward yourself with new clothes instead of treats.
For each hour an individual gets of regular exercise, they will gain approximately two hours of additional life expectancy. American Heart Association 
Healthy eating is associated with the reduced risk of disease, including several of the leading causes of death. —Report on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans
Exercise can help you feel less anxious and more relaxed—one exercise session generates 90 to 120 minutes of relaxation response. —American Psychological Association 
The average weight lost by a Slim & Sassy contestant over a three-month period was 24 pounds and 17 total body inches. —dōTERRA

A healthy body helps support a lifetime of energy and vitality and can aid in preventing the accelerated onset of many degenerative diseases. Managing weight and healthy body composition is primarily a matter of expending more calories than we consume. It sounds simple, but is something many struggle with. Every year, doTERRA holds a Slim & Sassy Lifestyle Change Contest, and provides people with super helpful tips to change! How did they do it? Their stories explain how each reached outside their comfort zone and decided it was time to choose change by:

  • Changing Their Attitude
  • Improving Their Diet
  • Exercising
  • Resting and Managing Stress

These four changes are crucial in helping individuals achieve their goals and make the lifestyle changes necessary to not only succeed, but maintain success

Change your Attitude

Many believe that weight management is only a factor of proper nutrition and exercise; however, one of the greatest in uencers is the right mental state. A person’s success at managing weight can usually be traced to how they begin. Creating a healthy lifestyle can be challenging; based on your starting point, there can be signi cant obstacles to overcome. In order to provide the best chance possible, individuals need to prepare themselves mentally as well as physically.

The common attitude associated with lifestyle change or weight management is often negative and restrictive. This attitude is not sustainable and makes weight management seem like an elusive goal. A better approach is to focus on the positive aspects of undertaking a lifestyle change. Below are a few suggestions for maintaining a positive attitude toward a healthy lifestyle change:

  • A lot of pessimism arises from false or unreasonable expectations, especially when those expectations involve you. Set smaller goals within larger ones. When you provide yourself with realistic expectations you will be more likely to succeed.
  • Post a blank sheet of paper on the wall or use a journal to count your achievements. Focus on the positive aspects associated with your goals instead of minor failures. When faced with a negative thought, use this record to remind yourself of your achievements.
  • Consider befriending new people—people who are optimistic and have a healthy attitude towards life. Sometimes a poor attitude is a result of surrounding ourselves with individuals who have negative perspectives.
  • Find a support system—someone who will be honest and supportive as you work toward reaching your goals. Be specific about your needs and your desires so that they understand where they can be of the most help.
“One of the most important elements of weight management is the role of nutrition. Exercise without proper nutrition limits your success. The basics of weight management include caloric consumption and expenditure. When making a lifestyle change, many tend to forget this simple concept. Even with vigorous exercise, calorie consumption can far exceed calorie burn without proper dietary change. Providing your body with proper nutrition is a healthy and safe way to improve lifestyle.”
—Dr. David Hill

Improve your Diet

  • Don’t skip meals. When you skip a meal, your body goes into “survival” mode, slowing your metabolism and storing excess food or glucose as fat. Instead, consider a meal replacement to reduce hunger and provide needed nutrients.
  • Choosing water over sugar-sweetened beverages can aid in maintaining a healthy weight. Substituting water for one 20-ounce sugar-sweetened soda will save you about 240 calories.
  • Focus on nding a balance between hungry and full. Stop eating when you are no longer hungry, not when you are full. To help, try decreasing portion size by using a child-size plate.
  • Don’t make the mistake of trying to change everything overnight. Decrease or replace one unhealthy food item at a time. For example, if you like chips, switch to baked or multigrain.
  • For a simpler approach to making healthy choices, think of your diet in terms of color, variety, and freshness.

Exercise

Exercise does more than just burn calories. It can positively in uence many components of health, including body chemistry and physiology. Proper exercise expends calories during and after activity, promotes better sleep, decreases cravings for unhealthy food, and can even elevate cognitive function.

To achieve a well-rounded tness routine, incorporate aerobic, strength, and exibility training into your exercise each week.

Aerobic Training

Recommended: 5 days a week

Exercise that uses large muscle groups and increases heart rate

Low intensity: walking Moderate intensity: jogging High intensity: sprinting

TIP: Aim for 150 minutes of low to moderate intensity or 75 minutes of high intensity aerobic exercise each week.

Strength Training

Recommended: 2 days a week

Exercise that focuses on speci c muscle groups Gym: free weights, resistance machines, pull-ups

Home: push-ups, abdominal crunches, leg squats, resistance bands

TIP: Strength training will help maintain muscle mass during weight loss; strive to work all major muscle groups for approximately 45 minutes each week.

Flexibility Training

Recommended: 7 days a week

Increase blood ow to muscles and prevent injury Static Stretching: holding a stretch for 20–60 seconds

Dynamic Stretching: repeated, controlled muscle movements (arm circles, walking lunges)

TIP: Try to t in 10–15 minutes of stretching each day.

Not everyone enjoys exercising in the same way. If you are unhappy with your current exercise routine, be creative. Here are a few suggestions to help you get started.

  • Biking
  • Kayaking
  • Basketball
  • Kickball
  • Skiing
  • Gardening
  • Yoga
  • Swimming
  • Dancing
  • Zumba®
  • Jump Rope
  • Ice Skating
  • Hiking
  • Rock Climbing
  • Cross-Country Skiing
  • Walking

Rest & Stress Management

Dr. David K. Hill, dōTERRA® Chief Medical Advisor, states, “Achieving proper rest is an important feature of any wellness program. Suffcient amounts of rest provide bodies with an opportunity to recover from the day’s activity, improve energy levels, and reduce the effects of stress.”

Tips for a good night’s rest:
  • Create a set routine by going to bed each night and rising each morning at the same time.
  • Make your bed comfortable. Use it only as a place to sleep and not for activities like reading, watching television, or listening to music.
  • Enjoy daily physical activity. This will allow you to fall asleep faster and enjoy a deeper sleep.

According to Dr. Hill, “Stress induces physiologic changes that cause a natural resistance to weight loss and can even reduce immune capability.”

Tips for reducing stress:
  • Know your limits. Taking on more than you can handle increases stress.
  • Work on time management. Create a plan for daily activities and tasks to eliminate pressure and create a sense of accomplishment.
  • Generate a support system. Share your responsibilities or your feelings with others.
  • Set aside time to relax. Find healthy ways to respond to stress by scheduling time for you.

And of course, you can kick off your weight management goals with the Slim & Sassy® Trim Kit. Slim down by using Slim & Sassy Metabolic Blend in your water, or use topically, throughout the day as part of your new commitment to improve your lifestyle with diet and exercise. Reduce your cravings with satisfying TrimShakes!

Are you ready to go on this journey?!

DDR Prime

DDR Prime is a proprietary blend of CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils that help protect the body against oxidative stress to cellular DNA. The essential oils in DDR Prime provide antioxidant protection and support a healthy response to cellular stressors. Cells are the foundation of all living things. Their growth, replication, and death provide the information for the function of all our body’s systems. As we age, cellular function progressively degrades and this process can be expedited by poor nutrition, lack of exercise, stress, exposure to toxins, and other lifestyle habits. When cellular function is compromised, the normal process of growth and regeneration is altered, negatively impacting all normal and healthy processes. I love how DDR Prime is available as both an oil and an oil softgels supplement.

What Makes DDR Prime Unique? DDR Prime is a proprietary blend of CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils of Frankincense, Wild Orange, Lemongrass, Thyme, Summer Savory, Clove, and Niaouli. DDR Prime combines essential oils shown to have powerful antioxidant properties so that your body can properly address oxidative stress for long-term well-being. Each essential oil contained in DDR Prime has a variety of benefits. Frankincense and Wild Orange have both been shown to promote a healthy response to free radicals. Clove oil provides powerful antioxidant properties. Niaouli and Thyme essential oils support cellular immunity and overall cellular health. Summer Savory has been shown to support the body’s natural mechanisms to deal with oxidative stress. Lastly, Lemongrass oil can protect against environmental threats.

DDR Prime Uses and Benefits

  1. As mentioned, DDR Prime is designed to support healthy cellular integrity.* Cellular health is the foundation of health; when the normal process of cellular growth, replication, and regeneration is altered, all body systems and functions are affected. A daily serving of DDR Prime provides the antioxidant support we need for lifelong cellular health.*
  2. You can enjoy the benefits of DDR Prime by adding one to two drops to citrus drinks, tea, or water and consume daily to protect the body and cells from oxidative stress.* If you are concerned about receiving proper cellular support, it is as easy as adding a few drops of DDR Prime to a drink in the morning, or a capsule as needed.
  3. DDR Prime can also be used topically. For a soothing topical massage, dilute DDR Prime with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil and gently massage into the skin.

DDR Prime is the perfect addition to a healthy routine, and would be wonderful to use along with any resolutions you have for the upcoming New Year! Will you be adding DDR Prime to your Essential Oil and Wellness arsenal? Let me know!

Mito2Max

Everybody can relate to feeling sluggish and dragging through the day, just waiting for it to end, and the holiday season even more so! Coffee, energy drinks, and stimulant-filled dietary supplements have become a regular part of the contemporary diet, along with the quick jolt of unnatural, and unsustainable, energy!  But Mito2Max supplements offer a broad spectrum of support, without the harmful side effects! What Makes Mito2Max Unique? A popular doTERRA supplement, Mito2Max is a novel approach to natural, lasting energy. It enhances energy by going straight to the source: our cells. Inside our cells reside mitochondria, the organelle responsible for the biomechanical processes of respiration and energy production. As we age, our body’s mitochondrial function becomes less efficient, making it progressively difficult to maintain our energy levels to take part in the activities we enjoy. Mito2Max supports healthy mitochondrial function, which results in improved energy levels, stamina, and aerobic capacity. The energy and stamina complex includes a proprietary combination of standardized plant extracts and metabolic cofactors that work with your body to support healthy cellular energy production. Mito2Max contains no caffeine or other harmful stimulants, yet enhances physical and mental stamina through high levels of Acetyl-L-Carnitine, Cordyceps, American Ginseng Root Extract, Ginkgo Leaf Extract, Ashwagandha Root Extract, Alpha-Lipoic Acid, Coenzyme Q10, and Quercetin Dihydrate. These ingredients work synergistically to provide physical and mental energy. Unlike other energy supplements, Mito2Max does not contain ingredients made from animal products, milk, or wheat products. It is made from sodium lauryl sulfate-free vegetable capsules for easy digestibility and high bioavailability.

Among many benefits, Mito2Max promotes efficient production of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) in the mitochondria of cells. Mitochondria are like the power plants of our cells, and ATP transports energy within the cells to help with metabolism. Mito2Max contains a proprietary combination of ingredients to support healthy and efficient mitochondrial function. We all crave more energy for our bodies, but wouldn’t it be nice to have more brain power to get you through the day? With special ingredients designed to improve mental energy, Mito2Max can provide support for mental energy. Within Mito2Max, standardized extracts of American Ginseng root extract, Ginkgo leaf extract, Ashwagandha root extract, and Coenzyme Q10 support long-lasting mental energy and acuity.

You’ve often heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day; however, it is equally as important to start your day off with a morning routine that will support energy throughout the day. Take two capsules of Mito2Max each morning with breakfast to support energy and focus that will last throughout the day. Another interesting characteristic of Mito2Max is that it supports metabolic adaptation for diverse activities, from movie watching to marathon running. Whether you are just preparing for another day at the office or getting ready for the big race, Mito2Max provides the metabolic benefits to support whatever you want to do!

This is why Mito2Max is one of my "mommy must-haves" and why i use Mito2Max on the days where I'm really needing that extra boost. It feels so good not to have to turn to 4 cups of coffee just so I can "mom" around!

Have you tried Mito2Max? If not, comment below and let me know! Let's get your energy back up to par!

Daily Nutrition

Back in September, Dr. David K. Hill shared his tips on a routine for Daily Nutrition and Wellness. So many of us can get lost in the day, or remember to put oils on everyone but ourselves. No more! Utilize this simple daily routine for your own health and wellness, and that will enable you to better support and love on those around you!

The cornerstone for your Nutrition (besides eating healthy foods) should be your Lifelong Vitality Supplements. The doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Program makes taking the first step on the path toward a lifetime of vitality and wellness convenient and affordable. Our lifelong health and vitality depend on many factors including diet, physical activity, weight management, rest, stress management, exposure to toxins, and inherited genetic predisposition for disease or wellness. While some of these variables are beyond our complete control, breakthrough scientific research is revealing many ways we can influence—and even control—significant factors of aging and wellness. A long life full of vitality and healthy aging begins with providing your cells with essential nutrients and metabolic factors to help them perform optimally.

Women's Health

Women's Health is super important and doTERRA knows this! So what did they do? They created a line of supplements and essential oils made to work perfectly with a woman's body, no matter what stage of life she is in. doTERRA Women is a line of products formulated to address the unique and changing health needs of women.

Normal hormone levels influence a woman’s good health and emotional well-being from her early teens to her transition through menopause. doTERRA Women gently supports a woman through the menstrual cycle and helps to diminish the normal symptoms of menopause. doTERRA Women supports healthy bones and heart as women age, while the essential oil blend provides temporary relief from heightened emotions related to regular hormone cycles in women. The doTERRA Women line of products provide natural support throughout the different phases of life.

These however, aren't the only products that help support a woman's body. Below I have a recorded webinar that I did, that touches on different essential oils, and of course wellness products for women.

https://youtu.be/LJW8BTrx7bc

I know how vital these supplements and oils play a role in my daily life, and I know that can do wonders for yours too! Please let me know if you have any questions and I am happy to support you!

DigestTabs

So many of us have digestive issues, and are looking for more natural solutions to support our bodies... which is why I highly encourage trying out DigestTabs! DigestTab Chewable Tablets combine the digestive-supporting benefits of DigestZen essential oil blend with the stomach acid–neutralizing properties of calcium carbonate to create a convenient chewable dietary supplement that soothes stomach upset. These tablets are also perfect for traveling, if you tend to feel anxiousness in your tummy!

This unique blend contains Ginger, Fennel, and Coriander to help ease occasional stomach discomfort, including motion sickness and indigestion, while Peppermint, Tarragon, Anise, and Caraway aid with digestion and help maintain a healthy gastrointestinal tract. DigestZen is a healthy, natural, and gentle way to soothe an occasional upset stomach or maintain a healthy digestive system. DigestTabs also contain Calcium Carbonate. Calcium carbonate, which comes from natural mineral sources, helps maintain stomach acid balance by neutralizing excess acid in the stomach. This helps relieve the discomfort caused by occasional acidity such as heartburn, indigestion, and flatulence.This specially designed calcium carbonate is less chalky than many similar products on the market and much easier to chew and swallow.

When digestive issues or occasional stomach upsets arise, it's hard to resist using doTERRA’s popular DigestZen blend.But, the essential oil blend isn’t always convenient and the usage model is somewhat limited. The DigestTab adds another layer of convenience and benefit with the included calcium carbonate. DigestTab is also unique because it offers fast-acting relief. Although each individual is different and results may vary, typically, benefits are experienced within 30 minutes after consumption. If you are planning on having a large meal, take a DigestTab preemptively right before eating, so that you don’t experience any digestive discomfort later. One of my favorite times to take a DigestTab is after I indulge in some Pizza! Since we usually have pizza in the evening, I take my DigestTab right before I brush my teeth and turn in for the night!

DigestTab provides a number of usage models. It can be used alone as a daily dietary supplement for digestive health. It can be taken alone to relieve occasional digestive distress, up to six times daily. It also offers the ability to be used in combination with other DigestZen products such as Zendocrine or DigestZen Softgels. If you feel that your day will include many foods or activities that will cause stomach upset, take a DigestZen Softgel in the morning and keep DigestZen essential oil blend and DigestTab chewable tablets in your purse for use throughout the day. In addition to all this awesomeness, DigestTab is non-GMO, gluten-free, and vegetarian-friendly!

Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex

I'm about to blow your mind with the Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex today! If you are a lover of all things Deep Blue, get stoked and comfortable because this post is for YOU! I know how vital these supplements are for my personal wellness, so I'm thrilled to share about the benefits of them today!

What Makes Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex Unique?

The power of Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex is in its proprietary combination of polyphenols revered in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for their soothing benefits.The foundation of Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex is extracts of Indian frankincense, turmeric, and ginger. Alone, these extracts are recognized for their soothing benefits; together they provide soothing support throughout the entire body. Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex also contains a unique combination of polyphenols—water-soluble antioxidants that work synergistically with Indian frankincense, turmeric, and ginger extracts. Included are powerful polyphenols from green tea, red wine, and grape and pomegranate juice. The resveratrol from red wine is believed to be one of the primary reasons for the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet. Catechins, believed to be the reason green tea is known as a superfood, help scavenge free radicals to aid the body. Grape seed includes high concentrations of one of the most powerful antioxidant substances: OPCs (Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins). OPCs assist with proper oxidative stress response. Finally, punicalagin has been shown to be the source of pomegranate’s antioxidant activity. These polyphenols are the perfect antioxidant complement to the soothing extracts of Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex. Deep Blue also contains the proprietary tummy tamer extract of ginger root, peppermint leaf, and caraway seed extracts for easy digestion of the sodium lauryl sulfate-free HPMC vegetable capsules. No need to worry about stomach upset, bloating, or allergy issues; just take two capsules with food (one in the morning and another in the evening), for your daily dose of soothing relief.

Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex is safe to be used by everyone in the family. Unlike other supplements that aren’t suitable for children or designed for the elderly, Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex has been formulated to help anyone in your family, from the youngest child to the oldest grandparent. Both my husband and I are big fans of this supplement, as it gives our bodies so much support in addition to our Lifelong Vitality Supplements.

Features patent-pending, fast-acting frankincense extract shown to help support muscle and joint comfort and function. Boswellia serrata extract (Frankincense) has been clinically studied to promote healthy mobility and function, and can provide soothing support throughout the entire body.

And that just scratches the surface on this awesome Vitamin supplement! Do you think you'll be adding this to your daily wellness regimen? Let me know in the comments! I always love to hear how you are using these products!

TerraZyme

For those with food intolerances, it can be tough to find a supplement that will coincide with special dietary needs. DigestZen TerraZyme uses sodium lauryl sulfate–free HPMC vegetable capsules for those seeking a vegetarian-friendly supplement. It is also gluten- and GMO-free, and contains no animal-derived ingredients. Today I'm happy to share about TerraZyme and how rad it is for your body!

Are you constantly experiencing stomach discomfort? Frequent digestive discomfort can turn the mere act of eating a meal or going about your daily tasks into a total pain. DigestZen TerraZyme promotes gastrointestinal comfort and food tolerance to help you go about your normal day rather than dealing with stomach issues. Take a DigestZen TerraZyme cap before a meal that includes foods that normally give you digestive discomfort to experience the benefits of feeling comfortable in your own body.

DigestZen TerraZyme delivers a balanced and comprehensive blend of digestive enzymes to support normal digestive processes. It offers a proprietary blend of 10 active whole-food enzymes that are often deficient in cooked, processed, and preservative-heavy foods. These enzymes not only bolster natural production, but can provide targeted support for especially difficult-to-digest foods.

Among many helpful ingredients, TerraZyme contains the doTERRA tummy tamer blend of Peppermint, Ginger, and Caraway Seed. The proprietary tummy tamer blend adds to the stomach-soothing benefits of DigestZen Terrazyme, and is so helpful when you've eaten something that is considered to be not-so-nutritionally-awesome.

Below, you can watch a quick video on how TerraZyme can help your teenagers, when their appetites go crazy!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wT3Fa3ky0M

My favorite use for TerraZyme is when I indulge in a little Pizza. It's not a dish I have super often, but when I do, I want to make sure that I'm not feeling the pizza for the next few days! I take 2-3 TerraZyme before I start eating and I follow it up with a DigestTab! I'm good to go!

TerraZyme is one of my favorite supplements and a must-have item in my home. Is this a supplement you plan to try? Let me know!

Back to School with On Guard Throat Drops

It’s back to school time! This is exciting but can also be a bit of a scary time for some of us and our health.This week, in preparation for the back to school season, I am spotlighting dōTERRA’s On Guard Protecting Throat Drops. These are a personal favorite of mine because they help me stay on top of my game at work and at home and I like the way they taste. dōTERRA On Guard Protecting Throat Drops provide the immune-supporting benefits of the On Guard essential oil blend in the convenience of an all-natural throat drop.

dōTERRA makes back to school time a little easier with their On Guard® Protecting Throat Drops. Some of the key ingredients in these throat drops are Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, and Myrrh all of which will help you and your students stay awake and their immune systems boosted during studying hours. Another great time that I like to have a throat drop is right before I teach a dōTERRA class. It soothes and preps my throat so I am ready to teach my information and answer all the questions I get afterwards. What situations have you found it was handy to have a throat drop? To learn more about this product, check out dōTERRA’s spotlight on their Protecting Throat Drops here.

Serenity

This week we are focusing on one of my favorite oils, Serenity. This one has been especially helpful in my family as we use it regularly for our son. Diffusing this oil helps create a peaceful atmosphere and a restful sleeping environment. One of our favorite diffuser blends uses 4 drops of Wild Orange, 3 drops of Serenity, and 1 drop of Peppermint. 1_Slide_Serenity

The newly updated dōTERRA Serenity combines essential oils renowned for their ability to lessen feelings of tension and calm emotions, and support a restful sleep when used aromatically. The blend creates a relaxing environment with its grounding aroma that calms the mind and soothes the senses. It is especially calming when used in a warm bath with Epsom salts to create a relaxing, renewing experience. dōTERRA Serenity can be used in conjunction with dōTERRA Serenity Restful Complex Softgels to promote a restful night’s sleep. To learn more, check out dōTERRA’s spotlight on the uses of Serenity Blend here.

Even the name, soothes the senses... Serenity. Serenity is considered the RestfulBlend and also the blend you are about to FALL IN LOVE with! With a calming and relaxing aroma that soothes the soul, doTERRA Serenity can be used to lessen feelings of tension, calm emotions, and promote relaxation.

 

A special blend of Marjoram, Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Ylang Ylang, and a few others is going to become one of your favorites and a staple in your essential oil stash. The essential oils in this must-have blend were meticulously chosen to lessen feelings of tension, calm emotions, and leave a peaceful feeling. doTERRA Serenity is the perfect blend to diffuse at bedtime for a restful night’s sleep, to calm a restless baby or child, or to help reduce the worry and stress so many of us feel. With it's receptive, compassionate, and accepting qualities, Serenity will leave you feeling tenderhearted and forgiving!

Here are some fun ways to use Serenity:

  • Apply to bottoms of feet at bedtime to help wind down before going to sleep.
  • Add 2–3 drops into a warm bath with epsom salts to create a peaceful, renewing aroma.
  • Diffuse to help promote relaxation and decrease stress.
  • Apply to an aromatherapy necklace to help reduce anxious feelings throughout the day

I really like adding this blend to fractionated coconut oil to use for massage. The aroma is so beautiful and really sets an energy of relaxation in the room. We also like to use this oil on the bottoms of our feet whenever we feel like we need to have a moment of relaxation or when we want to take an emotional breather!

I also am a HUGE fan of our Serenity Restful Complex Softgels! The are a lifesaver for me. According to world-renowned sleep expert Dr. Russell G. Foster, if you are an average person, 36 percent of your life will be spent sleeping. Based on time and direct influence on health, sleeping may be the single biggest component of overall well-being, yet of all healthy lifestyle behaviors, it has traditionally received the least attention. With modern research has come an increased understanding of what happens when we sleep and its importance, along with new methods of addressing this pervasive issue. To learn more about the science behind these softgels, click here. 

I generally have a hard time shutting down my brain at night, and usually have a million thoughts per minute (or at least it feels like it) going through my head. I take two of these softgels and after about 20 minutes I feel so much more relaxed and I fall asleep much easier. I also tend to be a worry-wart. (That's still a thing right?) If I'm feeling anxious during the day, I will take one or two of these to help calm and relax my body. It's seriously a product I will never be without.

So what do you think? Are you in love with Serenity?

Simple Detox

Healthy lifestyles can be sparked in so many different ways, but ultimately, true health begins in the gut. 90% of the body's serotonin involved in mood management is produced in the gut. Digestive function is scientifically linked to mood, so if you are feeling negative emotions, many of them can be coming from your digestive tract. It's been said that the Gut is like your second brain! So how do we cleanse our body, support the gut, and the microbiome?

GX Assist

GX Assist is a combination of CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils and caprylic acid to help support a healthy digestive tract by creating an unfriendly environment for potential threats that can disrupt digestive immunities and cause digestive upset.

Sugar Detox & Wellness

Ok, Ok, so maybe we all indulged a weeeee bit too much on the Halloween Candy. Or was that just me? Regardless, today I wanted to share my favorite ways to cleanse the body with essential oils and wellness supplements after a crazy sugar binge! I will even share my favorite ways to support your little ones and their bodies, since we all know they had some of those sugar bugs too ;)

Cleansing Oils:

Zendocrine:

Zendocrine is a great oil blend to add to the bottoms of the feet at night before going to sleep. This oil also comes in a softgel vitamin capsule for simple internal usage. It is literally our detoxification blend and is super supportive to the body. Here are some of the benefits:

• Supports the body’s natural ability to rid itself of unwanted substances

• Supports healthy liver function

• Purifying and detoxifying to the body’s systems

 

Purify:

This is our cleansing blend. While it is meant mostly for odors, I have found that it also works wonderfully in supporting the body with a natural cleanse. Apply topically to the abdomen, diluted in fractionated coconut oil, or apply to the bottoms of the feet. Here are other benefits to Purify:

• Refreshing aroma

• Eradicates unpleasant odors and clears the air

• Protects against environmental threats

 

Coriander:

This is THE oil you are going to want to use, especially if you are looking to support the tiny bodies of your little ones! Apply topically to the abdomen, diluted in fractionated coconut oil, or apply to the bottoms of the feet. Check out other awesome benefits to Coriander:

• Promotes digestion and eases occasional stomach upset

• Helps maintain an already healthy insulin response

• Soothes joint and muscle discomfort

• Tones and rejuvenates the skin

• Helps oily skin areas to reduce breakouts

 

Lemon:

Of course Lemon is an obvious choice. I will be adding this to my water and drinking it along with applying my sugar detox oils! If you are looking to warm up in the cool weather, add a couple drops to a mug of hot water and sip! Other benefits to using Lemon include:

• Cleanses and purifies the air and surfaces

• Naturally cleanses the body and aids in digestion

• Supports healthy respiratory function

• Promotes a positive mood and cognitive ability

• Helps ward off free radicals with its antioxidant benefits

• Soothes an irritated throat

 

In addition to these awesome oils, wellness supplements are a surefire way to eliminate any of the unwanted sugary guests hibernating in your body. I love my Lifelong Vitality pack and take it every single day. You can learn more about these supplements here For the little ones, I have something exciting to share with you. PB Assist Jr! In addition to taking a multivitamin, (a2z) our son also takes an essential oil and omega complex (IQ Mega) and NOW we have a probiotic that honesty, is flipping delicious and kids LOVE it! Probiotics are a fabulous way to cleanse the body naturally and support a healthy gut.

So there you have it! I hope your cleansing goes well! And if you aren't already purchasing your products as a wholesale customer, you can grab your 25% off discount right here!
