Did you know that when you inhale essential oils (or any aroma for that matter), the aroma immediately goes to the part of your brain that deals with emotions and mood? That’s why aromatherapy is one of the most powerful and delightful ways we can use our oils. I love that no matter what I’m feeling at any given moment, I know there’s an oil out there that can help. Whether you’re feeling bored, uninspired, angry, sad, or even just in a “funk”, essential oils can come to the rescue.
We all know that getting a restful night’s sleep is extremely important for our overall health. But, unfortunately, day-to-day stress, lack of exercise, demanding deadlines at work, and many other factors prevent us from getting the sleep we need and deserve!
I struggled with sleep for years and hated using chemical based products to help me sleep! Luckily, I now use essential oils, my essential oil diffuser, and a natural sleep aid and am able to have a super restful and restorative night’s sleep! Try some of these ideas out at bedtime for yourself or your kids.
Did you know, on average, we encounter over 2,000 chemicals each day just in our personal care products alone? That is outrageous!! But, it doesn’t have to be this way. One of the simplest ways you can begin living more naturally is by swapping out your toxic personal care products with more natural ones. Plus, who doesn’t want to use products with natural aromas from essential oils!? These are the products I use (and recommend) every morning. Not only do I smell great, but I love how well they work!
I'm so excited to be launching a new blog series called, "14 Days to Living More Naturally". This series will cover what it looks like to use essential oils and dōTERRA products on a daily basis and for a myriad of different things. I hope you will follow along with me! Let's dive right in.
We all know that starting your day with a good morning routine is one of the best things you can do to set your day in motion on the right foot. But, sometimes, it can seem overwhelming.
This simple morning routine will help provide you with the nutrients and energy your body needs to power through the day, generate a positive mood, and support your immune system!
Petitgrain is one of our newest essential oils and I'm so excited about it! Petitgrain comes from the leaves of the bitter orange tree (orange oil comes from the rind of the fruit and neroli comes from the blossom). dōTERRA's Petitgrain is sourced from Paraguay. Through their Cō-Impact Sourcing initiative, they are able to bring life back into the Petitgrain industry in this region, that prior was dying.
It's the first day of fall and I couldn't be more excited! It's that time of year for bonfires, family and friends, good food, and warm, spicy aromas. Fall is one of my favorite times to diffuse essential oils in my home. Not only does it make your house smell wonderful, but it also helps to purify the air and help to get rid of any kind of germ or bug going around! It's a fantastic way to keep your family healthy!
Here are 10 of my favorite diffuser blends for Fall. I hope these blends fill your home with warmth and love this Fall! Enjoy!
I am absolutely loving my new Spikenard essential oil. It will be available for purchase on October 3rd, but I got it early because I attended doTERRA's annual convention this month.
Spikenard gets its name from the spikes of the plant that the oil is distilled from. Highly prized in the middle East during the time of Christ, it’s referred to several times in the Bible. According to the Gospels, Mary Magdalene anointed Christ using Spikenard and it's fragrance is said to have filled the house.
