If you would like to learn more about dōTERRA essential oils and products, along with how we use them in our day to day, this is a great place to start!

Why I Chose Dōterra

Recently I’ve had a number of people ask me, “Why did you choose Dōterra?” Or “They’re like the same thing as ‘X brand’ right?” Here’s the thing. Dōterra is a league all on its own. No other essential oil company comes close to them, based on my research when looking to begin using oils. -They… Continue reading Why I Chose Dōterra

Detox Mud Mask

One of my most favorite doterra products is the detox mud mask. Though most people use it on their face (1st way to use it), there are 2 other great places to apply this mask for incredible benefits. The second place to try using your detox mask is your arm pits. Your underarms contain a… Continue reading Detox Mud Mask

Hands

One of the first places on your body to show age is your hands. You could have a beautiful, wrinkle free face, but if your hands start looking like tissue paper, it’s a dead giveaway. As a mom I am constantly washing my hands, working in the garden, and putting my hands through the wringer.… Continue reading Hands

Happy & Healthy

I guess I should start with the “disclaimer.” You know, the ones that all “alternative resources” have. The one that says, “According to the FDA these products can not prevent, treat, or cure, any illness or disease” blah blah blah. Isn’t it funny that somehow resources that have grown on the Earth and were used… Continue reading Happy & Healthy

Dryer Sheets VS Dryer Balls

One of the many places we inadvertently expose ourselves to chemicals is our laundry! This is something I never thought about until I had a baby- why can’t I use regular clothes soap and dryer sheets on my baby clothes? If these products aren’t safe enough for her, how are they possibly safe for ME!?… Continue reading Dryer Sheets VS Dryer Balls

Pregnancy

As I mentioned in my post about Eleanor’s Birth, finding out we were pregnant again was petrifying for me. Not because I was afraid to be a mom of 2. Not because I was afraid of labor & delivery. No. I was terrified of pregnancy.  When I was pregnant with Athena I had all day… Continue reading Pregnancy

Adult Bedtime

One of the hardest parts about using oils, has actually been remembering that I can use them for Ethan and I as well. This doesn’t mean I forget and use OTC medication, I just suck it up and wait for what ever is wrong with me to end or stop. I’m sure you’ve noticed I… Continue reading Adult Bedtime

Nursery Blend

When I got my initial starter kit of essential oils, I knew they were safe for my tiny human, but how was I supposed to use them!? The easiest place to start is the diffuser. It’s fairly common knowledge that lavender is exceptionally good at calming and relaxation. It’s also one of the safest oils… Continue reading Nursery Blend

Migraine Rollers

My mother and I both suffer from horrific migraines. Horrific really doesn’t even touch the debilitating pain sometimes, but it’s the best I’ve got. There are a few migraine blends we use to help give some relief, but the following are our 2 favorite. Peppermint Migraine Roller 10ml roller bottle Fractioned coconut oil (or carrier… Continue reading Migraine Rollers

They See Me Rolling

They hatin…. sorry. I couldn’t resist. One of the biggest concerns people have when they start with essential oils is HOW DO I USE THEM!? You invest, you’re SO excited to get them, and then you get them, and suddenly YOU JUST DON’T know! And when you want to use your oils on your Littles,… Continue reading They See Me Rolling

Rosemary Popcorn

We love popcorn in our house. It goes hand in hand with our epic movie marathon days. I love {real} buttery popcorn. I’m pretty plain-Jane, but now and again I like to mix it up. 1 bag of unbuttered, plain popcorn 2 tablespoons butter 1-3 drops Rosemary oil 1. Pop your popcorn as usual 2.… Continue reading Rosemary Popcorn

Sugar Scrub

A few weeks ago I did a post on Epsom Salt scrubs/soaks. This week, I’m doing one on sugar scrubs. My inspiration? This ad that I came across on Facebook. They look fun, fresh, and premade! Chocolate scrub!? YUMMO! But I did a little investigating. This is what I found on the website for the… Continue reading Sugar Scrub

Miracle Whip

No, this is not the stuff you put on a sandwich. This is my favorite jackofalltrades put-it-on-anything, oil blend. 3-5 tablespoons of coconut oil (regular NOT fractioned) 5 drops lavender oil 3 drops melaleuca oil 3 drops frankincense oil Add coconut oil to your mixing bowl. I use my KitchenAide with the whisk attachment and… Continue reading Miracle Whip

Cassia Wild Orange Scones

In a few weeks I am hosting a Tea, Snacks, {Baby Snuggles}, and Oils class. You obviously can’t have an afternoon tea without scones! Being that it will also be an oils class, and you can cook/bake with dōTERRA oils, I decided to do some experimenting. I couldn’t be happier with how these Cassia scones… Continue reading Cassia Wild Orange Scones

Lavender Lemon Cupcakes

These beautiful cupcakes made their debut on Mother’s Day, and popped out again for an Afternoon Tea and Oils Party, I hosted a few weeks ago. Usually I make as much as possible homemade. Between church, schedule, and mom-ing, I did this one semi-homemade. Ingredients: 1 white cake box mix (NOT vanilla or yellow!) Purple… Continue reading Lavender Lemon Cupcakes
