Life Style Changes

Recently my husband and I have embarked upon a life style change. Being college students and working full time, we ate out a lot. We now try to limit eating out to twice a month and we have been exercising more.

It's time to ramp that up. We will now be participating in the Whole 30 Diet. I would personally like this to continue for more than 30 days, but we will see how it goes. It won't be as hard for me as I love veggies and fruit. My husband on the other hand... might get bored with it because he is more of a meat and potato kind of guy.

I was really excited to find out that I can still have my doTERRA Vanilla Trim Shake with almond milk and a couple drops of Tangerine oil! The only kickers will be not having cheese and garlic bread. I will survive though.

I will let you know how it goes via blog posts and things of that nature! I'm excited to try something new!

Hello, Friends!

This past month has been a difficult one for me. This August marked 25 years since my mother has been gone. You would think as time passes, it would get easier, but it doesn't. Not for me any way. This past Saturday I had one of the biggest emotional break downs ever. I miss her like crazy and I want her here with me. I'm selfish like that.

My husband, bless his heart, held me close and cuddled me as I cried. He went and got my elevation and massaged it on my neck and I applied some to my chest over my heart. I just sat there cradled in his arms breathing deeply. Then my melt down was over. I've applied it every day the past few days and have been able to keep my tears at bay.

I love my oils and I'm glad that I have a supporting husband. Hold those you love tightly as you never know if you will see them again.

Peace and Love!

Zyto Scan

Just a quick reminder that the following is my testimony. I am not a doctor and do not claim to be one.

First off... I'm a total skeptic with everything. I got invited to do a Zyto Scan earlier this week. If any of you have read my previous blog posts, you know I have PCOS. This causes my menstrual cycle to be crazy and all over the place.

I have been spotting for months now, which is not unusual for me. It sucks, but I just deal with it! Anyway, I ended up doing the scan and it said the oils I needed were Clary Sage, Cypress, and Arborvitae. I got home and made a roller bottle of oil. I apply it daily in the morning to the bottoms of my feet and nightly to my feet, wrists, and abdominal area.

To my amazement... I stopped spotting. Me being the skeptical person that I am... Stopped using the oils for a day and the spotting resumed. Needless to say, I started the oils again and it went away! I will never be without these oils again!

If you have never had a Zyto Scan done before, I strongly suggest it! It was spot on for me!

A Month of Firsts

Hello Everyone!

I just want to provide you with some very useful information! I have recently been trying out the TerraZymes, Mito 2 Max, and using essential oils as deodorant. It's been a crazy month of firsts! I talked about Mito in my previous post, so it won't get much mention here. Other than... I love it! I love having just enough energy with no crash!

If you just started or are about to start taking TerraZymes this is for you!

1. The first couple of days taking it, you might find yourself running to the bathroom. This is normal as it is ridding your body of all that nasty crap. Literally and figuratively speaking! :)

2. You might notice an increase of acne. My face broke out horribly. It takes about 2 weeks for your body to adjust and get rid of the toxins. Then your skin will start to clear up and look amazing!

I have always heard that antiperspirant deodorant can cause breast cancer. I don't know how factual this is, but if I can do anything to reduce the risk... I'm all for it! I have recently been using essential oils as deodorant. I have not been making my own deodorant, I just apply straight oil! I was really skeptical at first and even placed my deodorant stick in my purse just in case.

Here are a few things I have learned.

1. I love the smell of citrus bliss. It is great as a deodorant and your pits smell great. However, it is citrus based and it burns, at least it burned for me. I had to wash my underarms midday and apply another oil.

2. Immortelle works the best in my opinion. The scent is nice, it doesn't burn, and hey... my pits are going to stay youthful! :)

Many people say they wouldn't use it because it's too expensive. Price wise at first it can be a bit pricey. This is what I did: I divided my Immortelle up into 4 roller bottles, then I topped it off with FCO and it works like a charm. These 4 bottles are going to last me quite a while. How long exactly? I have no clue, but a little bit goes a long ways.

I was hot and sweaty all day yesterday. I reapplied the oil midday, just to be on the safe side. I had sweat rolling down my face, but my pits were still smelling like roses and myrrh! It was awesome!

Mito 2 Max

I have recently been working crazy hours at work. I got a gym membership a couple of months ago, but I've been too exhausted to use it. I go to work at 6 am and I get home between 5 or 6 pm. I eat dinner and I'm ready for bed at 8.

I finally got some Mito 2 Max to try out. I took it a few days and didn't notice a huge change. Before I knew it, I wasn't yawning as much throughout the day and I was more alert. I didn't get jittery and I didn't crash after taking it. It was kind of nice to come home and enjoy a few hours with my hubby before wanting to crawl into bed.

Now that I have established the blend in my system, I only take one a day now and I still have that little bit of extra energy to get me through the day. So much so that instead of going to bed at 8 pm last night, I went for a walk! I got home and went to bed a little later around 10. I woke up around 7 this morning and I feel great! I will definitely be taking this daily!

If you need that extra little boost, give it a try! I love it!

Verage Skin Care

Hello Everyone!

I have been using Verage Skin care for a few months now. I stopped using the 4 step process for about a week and I started breaking out like a teenager. I started using it again and my face started clearing up. I've gone back to using it morning and night. The moisturizer I use every other day.

It is the most expensive facial care I have ever purchased. I bought it in March and consistently (with the exception of the one week) use it morning and night. It's not even half gone. The results I saw with my own skin, is well worth it.

See my results below. All I know is... I'll never be without it again!

What I saw in DoTERRA

I have been purchasing DoTERRA products now for 9 months. I am 100% a believer in DoTERRA and everything they stand for.

I was not fond of the idea that DoTERRA went to other countries to grow plants for oils. Why not create more jobs in the USA? Then I went to convention last year and:

I saw how they do co-impact sourcing.

I saw how dedicated DoTERRA was in changing lives.

I saw the lives they changed.

I saw that DoTERRA wanted the best growing conditions for the plants that our oils would be extracted from.

I saw that they cared about others and the products that they were creating.

I saw some of the growers and harvesters come in person. They were emotional and full of gratitude.

I saw hope in the eyes of the children that just received a new school building from DoTERRA and the Healing Hands Foundation.

I saw smiles and tears of joy from communities that just received running water to their village in Haiti. They no longer had to walk an hour and a half one way in the 100+ degree heat just to get clean drinking water.

I see the difference they are making and I'm glad to be part of it. I love DoTERRA and everything they do!

I see the difference in my life alone with the oils I use daily.

I see how the oils are helping those around me.

Thank you DoTERRA! Thank you for the gift of the earth!
