Laura gave us each a roller of Peaceful Child last Christmas–it’s incredible…and better than that–it works! Just a tad on the bottoms of a couple of little feet, and it’s calm, smooth sailing from there on. I love these oils!
Message me if you want more info.
Yes, yes. I’ll admit it. The hall cupboard was a mess. This is the top shelf and all the things you want to keep from the little people. Cleaners, bug spray, and umm…game pieces…apparently.
Second shelf was, sadly worse because with our newly acquired love of a more natural approach to healthcare, well…things on this shelf just got kinda stuffed in and neglected.
The first step was to gather and throw away everything that was old, outdated, expired or otherwise deadly. The bag was huge…trust me. I would have taken a picture of it but it sincerely embarrassed me. So, instead I snuck it out and dropped it in the trash. Next, I put all the old lotions and perfumes in a bucket and tried to figure out if I wanted to keep them or not. I looked up “perfume and lotion disposal” on Google and found that this calm, non-assuming little bucket holds “toxic, hazardous waste” and that I wasn’t suppose to dispose of it in the regular trash…it was that bad. Funny that it doesn’t say anything like that on the labels. It just tells me how to apply it to my FACE. yikes.
It was amazing how much space there was once all the crazy, nasty, old stuff was gone.
There was plenty of room for the cough drops, and light bulbs and nail polish and chap stick.
And best of all–I saved a nice, cozy spot for my oil box, smack-dab in the middle. Where we can all get at it.
Just as it should be.
Well, I got a few more Essential Oils and since the concocting of potions is quite addicting– I made a couple more. I was asked by a few people on Facebook for the recipe–so I’ll just show you how it’s done.
First I picked up a six pack of 4 ml roller bottles from My Oil Business.
Next I took my new oils–Eucalyptus, Cloves and Lemon–
and dripped the exact number of drops in the bottle.
Next I took the roller cap…
and snapped it in.
You may have to screw the black lid on top to snap the roller down all the way.
I always make labels for the caps so I can decide each day what scent I’m drawn too.
Makes the bedtime ritual soothing and smell so good, not to mention keeping everybody healthy. We love these oils!
More recipes coming soon. :}
People are steadily moving towards a more holistic approach to wellness–but when it came to essential oils–I was skeptical.
First of all, I expected them all to smell like cheap cologne, and secondly, who wants to walk around with oily fingers all the time? What a pleasant surprise to find the scent of Wild Orange, Peppermint, Grapefruit, Lavender and Citrus Bliss–just to name a few. And because they are Certified Therapeutic Grade Pure, each one absorbs into the skin immediately. Huge, huge plus.
With a basic kit and within 24 hours…our family had solved half a dozen little problems and ailments in our own household, and all, with just a drop or two of these doTERRA oils.
Sore throat, tummy ache, sniffles, cranky toddler, cold sore, test anxiety, throbbing knee, fussy baby, headache–all relieved in minutes…seconds even. Fast, easy and very relaxing.
Now then, with all the scary events having to do with Hurricane Sandy and all those poor folks on the east coast, the focus has really taken a shift at our place. We’ve given a lot of thought as to just how prepared–or not–we’d be in an emergency of our own. What I’ve discovered is that along with having a 72 hour kit for each member of the household, essential oils will be an incredible addition as well.
Here are the top 3 reasons to have doTERRA Essential Oils in your emergency preparedness kit~
1) To help with injuries and other adverse health issues.
2) To help with emotional upset, severe stress and trauma.
3) To help with hygiene, cleanliness and prevention of infection.
Sounds like a good idea–right? Of course it does!
So, I’m excited to let you–my readers–know about a wonderful FREE class on how to bring your Emergency Preparedness to a whole new level. If you’ll be anywhere near the Orem, Utah area next week, I hope you’ll join us Friday November 30, at AromaTools 1351 W. 800 N. in Orem, from 7 to 8:30 pm.

…made with doTERRA OnGuard Essential Oils.
And oh, my goodness, I’m feeling very clever right now. What do you think about a cough drop that has anti-viral properties and still tastes incredible? Hmmm? I’ll tell you, you’ve never had anything like this. I just hit me one night–while I was sound asleep–maybe I dreamed it, I don’t know. But I woke up thinking, “I need to make my own cough drops and these ones will not just soothe a sore throat, but they can actually fight off the virus that causing it in the first place.” So there.
I have recently become an enormous fan of doTERRA Essential Oils–I know, I know, I was a bit slow to catch that train. But I’m here now and I’m pretty excited to find all these unbelievably simple ways to help the sweet little moms and dads that I teach every week…plus my own family and friends. So my Honey Spice Cough Drops are a good place to start. You, my friends, will love them. And then would you do me a little favor and flit on over and “like” my new Facebook page? It would mean the world to me.
In exchange, I’ll give you my brand new secret recipe…
for your very own.
Honey Spice Cough Drops
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup butter
3-5 drops doTERRA *OnGuard Essential Oil
Put all the ingredients except OnGuard Essential Oil in a heavy pan and cook slowly over medium heat until it reaches the “hard crack stage.” Resist the urge to turn the heat up higher to speed up the process. It will burn unless you keep it on medium and check it often. Once you can drizzle a spoonful of the syrup into a cup of cold water and have it turn to brittle threads–take it off the heat immediately. Wait about 30 seconds to a minute and then add the OnGuard Essential Oil. Stir.
Pour into a buttered cookie sheet. Fold edges of the candy into the middle until cool enough to handle.
Working quickly, pull and roll into long strips…
and cut into nickle size pieces.
Allow to cool completely and harden. If your drops have been cooked long enough, you’ll be able to store them in a ziploc bag.
If they are a bit soft and still sticky, wrap them in waxed paper squares and store in a ziploc bag.
Just wait until you tell your friends what you just did.
You’ll likely be worshiped as a Goddess of Health and Healing.
If you play your cards right, it’ll be true.
