September Days are here...

September Days

It's the start of the most wonderful time of the year...FALL! Okay, okay, so we are still a few weeks away, but it's just oh-so-close! I woke up on September 1st with a smile on my face. Today I came across this post from the amazing Jill Perry which was perfect timing...

SEASONAL SUMMER-TO-FALL BLEND
3 drops Clove
2 drops White Fir
4 drops Lemon
Rub on bottoms of feet (or diffuse) for five consecutive nights. Helps protect against seasonal and environmental elements.

Also, don't forget On Guard is superb for eliminating and controlling pathogens due to the potency of its constituents. You can get the On Guard blend in various forms including Oil, Foam Hand Wash, Protecting Throat Drops, Laundry Detergent, Cleaner Concentrate, Softgels, Beadlets, and Toothpaste (my favorite!).

If you are looking for some great deals on essential oil tools this is the month to get the best products at a discount. doTERRA's yearly convention is September 9th-12th and My Oil Gear, My Oil Business, AromaTools are offering deals in conjunction with the conference. Like these companies on FaceBook so you know what deals will be available.

Let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to make a purchase.

Happy September Days!

Marching Into Spring

Ice storms, snow, freezing temps, oh my! We've had quite the winter and we're less than a month away from Spring. For those enduring the cold temps are all shouting "Hallelujah!" For those in warmer areas, we are jealous, oh so jealous right now. My household has had quite a busy February and we're looking forward to a much calmer March.
In the past couple weeks my mom had some medical issues and was even hospitalized. As I sat in the Emergency Room waiting to go back to see her I leaned over to my dad and said..."I'm kinda grossed out right now. This waiting room is filled with germs and yuckiness. Use some of this On Guard Hand Sanitizer every 10 mins." Ha! Seems a bit excessive, I know, but there is nothing clean about a waiting room in any building especially a hospital. And as soon as my mom was admitted and I was able to get home and back I had a diffuser in her room. We had a couple staff comment on how great it smelled. I had a nurse say it smelled like a spa. Any time you can make a hospital room a little more like a spa is a win in my book! Yesterday when I took my mom to her doctor's appointment, her Doctor had a diffuser going in the waiting room. I love seeing the health care profession getting behind using natural options as well! I know that Vanderbilt University Emergency Room set the tone when they started using doTERRA in their waiting room, staff and now with patients. You can read about it here and here.

Speaking of health care professions recommending essential oils as an added benefit to overall care look at the Tweet I saw today from Dr. Josh Axe. If you've not heard of Dr. Axe read all about his credentials here.

You can read the whole article here. The article talks about what Frankincense essential oil is, some reasons of what it is used for, it's benefits, and several DIY recipes. You can read more about what some call Liquid Gold (nope, it's not Velveeta) at EverythingEssential.me. It also has a great video webinar by Dr. David Hill about Frankincense essential oil and it's benefits. My favorite use for this oil currently is in my facial moisturizer.
I will be placing an order next Friday, March 6th. If you would like to be part of this order, please let me know by NOON on Friday, March 6th.

And as always, if you have any questions or need information please let me know. I would love to help you in any way possible.

Stay warm!
Natasha


PS - Last month I gave a free Citrus Bliss Hand Lotion to one lucky person who placed an order with me. This month I'm going to have a drawing for a free doTERRA Lip Balm with Peppermint and Wild Orange Essential Oils. All you have to do is place an order with me (on my website or through me) by March 15th to be entered in to the drawing! Good luck!

Spreading Love!


We are just a few days away from Valentine's Day and I hope that you've thought a little about of how you plan on showing your lovies some lovin'. If not, below are some ideas to help you along that are may not be your obvious (read: generic) choices. Remember, it doesn’t take much and it doesn’t have to cost a lot...it requires just some thought and maybe some planning. The important thing is to remind those around you that you love them. Don't hate on the holiday...embrace it!

Valentine’s Day Spreading Love Ideas:

1.) Homemade Card - be creative...check out Pinterest for ideas.
2.) Scented Heart-shaped Salt Dough Ornaments. Read my previous post Bliss-fully Yours for instructions.
3.) Mani/Pedi certificate (If you are in the Greater Nashville area...call Lisa Alexander at Salon Utopia | 615-457-7916). You can get $5-$10 off if you are a first time client.
4.) Aromatherapy products from doTERRA - you can order here...need help choosing? Just ask!
5.) Unwind box - include everything someone would need for a restful night at home...bath bombs, scented shower gel, wine, gourmet popcorn, favorite movie.
6.) Giving Key - jewelry with a message and cause. Pick a key with a word that you think best fits your lovie. Courage, Love, Faith, Inspire...all good choices.
7.) Cleaning Service for day - help them unwind with having their home cleaned. Need someone in the Greater Nashville area? I have a couple suggestions...both use natural products!
8.) Complete those Honey-To-Do List items - do they have a list of items they want done like painting a room, moving some furniture, putting up those pictures on the wall? Now is a good time to get those tasks done!
9.) Cashmere anything...can’t go wrong with cashmere! Blanket, scarf, gloves...luxurious!
10.) 52 Things I Love About You...You may bring them to tears and it's a great reminder all year round.
11.) Cupcakes - there are plenty of specialty shops out there now...find one near you and pick out their favorite!
12.) Cheesy Candy and Soda messages...Use a Crush glass bottle with a tag that says "I have a Crush on you" or a box/jar of Reese's Pieces with a tag that says "I love you to pieces"... have fun, be silly!

If you choose to do Flowers make sure to go to a quality store like Fresh Market or a florist...some of my favorite flowers have come from Sam’s Club too.

No matter what you decide to do remember to tell all your loved ones that you love them today and every day!

Much love!

Bliss-fully Yours

Am I one of the few adults that loves Valentine's Day so much? I love any holiday that celebrates telling people that you love them. It's always a good reminder to actually say the words that we feel. I'm reminded of this more today than usual as I honor two friends that passed away this day in 2007. I am so thankful that one day I will have the opportunity to tell them face-to-face that I love them again! Whatever your feelings are about the holiday, may it at least remind you to share the love...loud and clear.

Are you looking for an inexpensive way to tell your family and friends that you love them? Make a Valentine's Day scented ornament that they can hang in their car, room, bathroom or just about anywhere. This way every time they see or smell it, they'll be reminded of your love! You most likely have these ingredients in your pantry and you can use whatever essential oil you prefer to add the scent. It's a quick project and great for kids as well!

Here's a recipe from the doTERRA blog on how to make the ornament. You can customize your ornament with just a few simple tricks. The key is to have fun and make something that will bring a smile to your loved one's face.

Here are some ideas:
- Use a heart shaped cookie cutter
- Paint them with a special design (you can do this after they dry)
- Use food coloring to change their color  (you do this as you are making the dough). Magenta and Purple Neon can add a little pop!
- Use Valentine inspired ribbon to hang your ornament
- Include a tag that shares your sentiment (I used Citrus Bliss essential oil blend, so my tag said Bliss-fully Yours...but check out the doTERRA blog for more suggestions AND pre-made cards too....so clever!)
- Add a little sparkle...You may want to use glitter glue to contain glitter if kids are involved (make sure it's NOT the kind that dries clear).
- Use Valentine inspired stamps and ink colors
- Use stencils to create a pattern or design
- Layer different size ornaments for added depth and style
- Add handprints, initials, thumbprints for keepsakes

Here's a sneak peek at mine...I'll post a finished picture after they have been sent out!


In the spirit of sharing the love...I'm going to do a Bliss-fully Yours drawing this month. Everyone that places an order on my site (visit link or select doTERRA tab above) or places an order with me through February 15th, 2015 will be automatically entered to win a Citrus Bliss Hand Lotion. This lotion is one of my favorites especially when I need a little afternoon mood pick me up...not that any of you ever need that.

Have a wonderful February, friends!
