Hello Hello my friends!
I took some time off over the holidays, and now I am back! I hope you all had a FABULOUS Christmas and New Years! I know I did! Let me just tell you, I CANNOT believe it is 2014, Crazy! I am so ready to kick-start this year being active, healthy, and…stress free (I can dream)?!? Like I said last year, I love the start of the new year. It’s so fresh and motivating, it’s a new canvas to plan out your year! I am still working on my goals from last year…pretty much my 2013 goals are the same as my 2014 goals. And I am totally okay with that! I am making some changes here and there, I’ll share once I have them written down.
I am so excited to share with all of you one of my new endeavors…Doterra Essential Oils. Lately, I have researched some toxic free solutions to everyday essentials. I have to tell you, I am LOVING essential oils and having a blast learning about them. I have used them for everything! From cleaning, relaxation, calming down my dog Henry (LOL), mood boost, even starting my day with a detox of lemon!
I wanted to share some of my uses for some of my favorite oils!
Lavender: Ahh, the smell of pure relaxation! I add lavender to my unscented lotion, I add a few drops to a hot bath, I add about 7-10 drops to a diffuser (Makes my bedroom smell like a spa!) and right before I go to bed I will put a few drops on my feet, I then get a peaceful nights rest!! Lavender is used for a stress reducer, anxiety, burns, calming, and it just smells AMAZING!
Wild Orange: I always say Wild Orange smells like happiness in a bottle. I used it for a lot of different things. Mainly, a mood booster! Breathe in to lift mood, release stress, or calm anxiety,Put 2 drops under tongue for a better nights sleep or for instant relaxation, Add to water and vinegar for a natural cleaning solution, Add a few drops to drinking water for cleansing, energy, and an antioxidant boost, Wild orange apples: Add 4 drops to sliced apples in water, Fruit Dip: Add 3 drops to vanilla yogurt, Wild orange brownies: Add 10 drops to brownie recipe before baking! There is a ton!
Peppermint: I love peppermint! I use peppermint for stomach aches, nausea, headaches, and for alertness. Also, as a breath freshener!
There ya go…just a sample of some of my favorites and what I have been up to on my time away from my blog! If your interested in shopping for some essential oils…check out my online store! My ONLINE STORE! : )
Okay friends…stay warm! In Pittsburgh, It is going to be the coldest day in 20 years tomorrow!
It feels good to be back to blogging, what have all of you been up to!?
