Mama Mia!






Here's a great opportunity to get all the Mama's in your life something different that she'll absolutely love! Each blend is perfect for the woman who needs to feel loved and pampered. I use Serenity as my go-to perfume...imagine the benefits by wearing a calming blend all day...especially if you've got kiddos running around or for the working mom that never gets a break.

Not a mom? This is still a great gift for all the woman in your life...including yourself!

Serenity - Calming Blend:  Stress is a major contributor to illness and disease, in fact, it is estimated that more than 90% of all visits to health care professionals are related to stress. Serenity is a blend composed of individual oils with known calming properties which create a sense of well-being and relaxation. Lavender, sweet marjoram, roman chamomile, ylang ylang, sandalwood and vanilla bean create a subtle aroma ideal for aromatic diffusion or topical application. Applied to the bottom of the feet at bedtime, dōTERRA's Serenity is an excellent way to promote restful sleep. Added to a warm bath Serenity creates the perfect escape with its peaceful, renewing fragrance. For topical or aromatic use.

Balance - Grounding Blend: Everyone experiences moments of disconnectedness or anxiety. The warm, woody aroma of Balance, dōTERRA's grounding blend, creates a sense of calm and well-being. We perfectly blend spruce, rosewood, frankincense, and blue tansy with fractionated coconut oil to offer an enticing fragrance which promotes tranquility and a sense of balance. For aromatic or topical use.

Whisper - Blend for Women: dōTERRA's Whisper is a perfect balance of several CPTG essential oils unified to impart beauty, femininity, and allure. Containing rose, jasmine, bergamot, cinnamon, cistus, vetiver, ylang ylang, cocoa, vanilla, sandalwood, and patchouli. Whisper's subtle fragrance, once applied, mingles with your individual scent to enhance the essence that is all your own. For topical or aromatic use.

Set the World on Fire

"Be who you were created to be, and you will set the world on fire." -St. Catherine of Sienna

Could it possibly that easy to set the world on fire? To be a world changer? Just to be who you were created to be? That's it? Sounds so simple. Yet I bet each one of us know the struggle that it can be to be who we were created to be.

Do we know who we were created to be? We certainly know who the world tells us to be. Our "role models" are performers, entertainers and high profile figures. How much of the every day lives do we even know of these role models? We set them on pedestals without knowing them. But if we see money, lots of friends, awards, etc we equate it to success. And we all want to be successful. Could it possibly be that our definition of success is not biblical at all? Even Dictionary.com gives us one of the definitions of success as "the attainment of wealth, position, honors, or the like."

There has to be a shift in our thinking. I'm not saying that attaining wealth, position, honors or the like are bad. I think that those are all by-products that we may not receive here on earth. After all, our treasures are stored up for us in heaven (Matthew 6:20), right? You can have the world's version of success here on earth, but that does not guarantee you to have heavenly success/treasures.

John Wooden gave this definition to success:
Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.

I would like to add one more thought to his quote and that's "to bring glory to God and further His kingdom." Success is really not about us. I realize this can bring up a lot of questions with "works" and I'm not talking about "works/grace" now. 

So who were you created to be? If you are a Christian, you are an ambassador for Christ (2 Corinthians 5:18-20)...no matter where you work, where you live, or your age. But to be an ambassador you need to know who you are and who you represent. You are free, loved by God, righteous, complete, alive, holy, God's workmanship, and so so so much more. Read Knowing Who I Am in Christ for a list of all that you are. In fact, you may want to read it out loud every day for 30 days to really get it in you. Seriously. Read them out loud every day for 30 days and see what happens.

You can be a musician, a stay-at-home mom, work in Corporate America, or really whatever and be an ambassador for Christ. And as you do your best with what you have in front of you to bring glory to God and further His kingdom you will set the world on fire. You will change the world...even if it's just for the world around you. That sounds like success to me. I know a lot of successful stay-at-home moms who never receive any earthly awards or payment. I know tons of entertainers that are better than the world's greatest that do not receive the financial blessings of their talent. I know many missionaries that should be rewarded for the change they are bringing to nations. I know people that have reached the peak of worldly success receiving awards, accolades, wealth. Each one of these are incredible ambassadors who are doing what they were created to do to the best of their ability not for themselves but for God...not one of them is better than the other. Each one is changing the world.

The world needs you to be who you were created to be.

Essential Oils. If you read my posts, you've heard a lot about them by now. Or maybe you have friends or family talking about them. If you are anything like me, you have plenty of questions about essential oils. I love talking about them because I know from personal experience how they have helped me gain overall wellness naturally. Oil Classes/Parties are a great way to learn more about essential oils. And lucky for you there is a class coming up on April 15th, 2014 in the Lenox Village area. Click here to link to the event. Can't make it to the class? You can schedule one for you and your friends or I can meet with you (in person or over the phone). Don't delay because you don't have all the answers, learn more at a class or a meeting.

An Updated Version of 60 Tips

So, I came across this incredible post today on a blog called "Serendipity and Creativity" called: 60 Little Tips That Can Change a Girl's Life.

It is such a great list that I wanted to share it. I did make some changes to it though...slight but helpful ones that help you save money, keep it natural and add tons of life giving wellness! My changes/additions are in purple.
  1. Download a banking app.
  2. Drink more herbal tea. It will save your life. Add 100% pure essential oils for added benefits! (Peppermint, Lavender, On Guard, Fennel...all good options!)
  3. Making your own coffee/tea instead of buying it will make you a rich woman.
  4. Always have at least 6 chap sticks stocked up. Make your own natural lip balm...with Peppermint and Wild Orange essential oil for amazing soft lips!
  5. Add 1 drop of Peppermint essential oil to your Lip Gloss to make lips voluptuous.
  6. Check out thrift stores. You may have to wash things three times before you get the old lady smell out, but it’s well worth it. Add 1 drop of Lavender essential oil and you may only need to wash it once to get the smell out.
  7. Never buy cheap jeans.
  8. Buy cheap sunglasses instead.
  9. Don’t chase boys.
  10. Wrinkle spray and a hair dryer erase all need to ever use an iron for all of you lazy iron-ers like me.
  11. Wear slippers when you have to drive in heels.
  12. Wear slippers when you’re traveling.
  13. Wear slippers at all moments that it’s even slightly acceptable to wear slippers.
  14. Spend a little extra money on your make up; it’s so worth it.
  15. Get running sneakers that are actually effective and not just cute.
  16. NEVER go to bed with your make up on.
  17. Get like a thousand packs of make up wipes, because they work the best. Make your own natural ones to save money and your face!
  18. Buy your wine from a box, it’s way more cost efficient and being “wine classy” is so overrated.
  19. Carry headphones in your pocket at all times.
  20. Pick your girls over your boyfriend often, because almost always, the guys come and go and the girls are still there.
  21. Get a really nice strapless or “sticky bra” and you will realize how much better everything looks without your old straps popping out.
  22. Wash your face.
  23. THE DOLLAR TREE CAN AND WILL SAVE YOUR SOUL.
  24. Never neglect to paint your toe nails.
  25. Eat breakfast.
  26. Make a summer playlist for when you need to walk in the cold and start actually getting depressed.
  27. Get a super awesome coffee mug.
  28. Realize that you can pull off red lipstick, rock it girl.
  29. Make guys take you on dates that don’t involve a bar or dingy basement.
  30. Never try dieting pills or fads. It’s all a bunch of garbage, just be healthy.
  31. Call your mom when you need help.
  32. Forget name brands. No one really cares, and you will have three times the wardrobe to choose from if you shop at Tj Maxx and Marshalls first.
  33. Make sure you have at least one friend that likes your favorite TV shows.
  34. And your favorite snacks.
  35. There is this amazing invention called “boob tape” to wear with strapless dresses and you need to purchase it. You don’t need twenty candid photos of you pulling up your dress on the dance floor at a formal event anymore.
  36. Ask for a white coat underneath the color when you get your nails done and the color you wanted looks so much more vibrant. Also, go for the glitz nail.
  37. Never spend too much time crying over a boy.
  38. Order the dressing or sauce on the side ladies. You’d be amazed at the difference.
  39. Always try clothing on before you buy it. Don’t even try to reason with yourself, “Well I don’t need to try this on”, yes you do.
  40. Drink as much water as humanly possible. Add 1-2 drop of Lemon essential oil to every ounce of water for added benefits and detoxing your kidney/liver!
  41. One foundation does not fit all. Your skin is unique; so spend the time to get a foundation that doesn’t look like you just smudged your face with paint.
  42. Use your iCalendar on your phone for reminders. It sends you emails and will give you instant organization.
  43. Get a microwaveable heat pad. Your cramps and back will thank you for the rest of your days. Make your own...add a couple drops of Serenity essential oil blend for overall relaxation. And do your hormones/cramps a huge favor by buying Clary Calm essential oil blend. Trust me on this one!
  44. Understand that Ben and Jerry’s will always be the best remedy for a broken heart and no shame is ever needed in that.
  45. Stock your car, desk, and bags with hand sanitizer. Make your own. Super easy, cheap and natural...and it guarantees that it’s non-alcoholic. 
  46. Keep Advil in your purse for your every day headaches.  Keep Peppermint essential oil in your purse for your headache. Just a sniff and a dab on your temples, back of neck can do the trick. And it doubles as a breath freshener as well!
  47. Band-Aids too, heels are beautiful little monsters.
  48. Befriend store associates because they actually will help you.
  49. Light butter popcorn is actually a great choice.
  50. Exercise when you’re stressed out.
  51. You can and will never have too many pairs of underwear. Buy as many as you want girlfriend.
  52. Find the perfect moisturizer. Make the perfect moisturizer. Coconut oil and a couple drops of an essential oil (citrus essential oils are a great way to brighten your skin).
  53. Accessories are life changing.
  54. Take bubble baths. Make it an Epsom Salt bath with a few drops of essential oils for added relaxation and detoxification. Lavender and Serenity blend are fabulous for this!
  55. Have granola bars on hand at all times.
  56. Read as much as you can for your own enjoyment. You shouldn’t forget about what interests you.
  57. Look natural in photos and smile with your teeth. Don’t do that weird grimace smile; your teeth are perfect just the way they are. Use On Guard toothpaste to help whiten, clean and strengthen your teeth.
  58. Don’t blow off going to the doctor or dentist. It’s incredibly important to take care of your body.
  59. Get your beauty sleep. Add a drop of Lavender essential oil to your wash when washing your sheets and sleep better than ever before.
  60. Use hand lotion. You can make your own or buy natural ones that will add years back onto your hands. Grapeseed oil with a drop of Wild Orange essential oil is revolutionary.
  61. Make a natural scrub you can use for your hands. Easy, inexpensive and feels like a mani every time!
  62. Make chocolate chip pancakes when ever possible.

Dr.'s Orders

Oregano oil superior to antiboiticsI am a fan of Dr. Josh Axe. I met him and was able to attend several classes he taught when I worked at Mercy Ministries of America in Nashville, TN. I've been following him over the years.

Recently he posted this great article entitled Oregano Oil Benefits Superior To Prescription Antibiotics. Take a moment to read the article...it's full of great information!

Then click on the doTERRA tab and order a bottle of Oregano today! My dad has been using it for oil pulling and my nephew has been having it put on the bottoms of his feet to combat a cold this week. I used it to remove Skin Tags...check out my post Tag, You're It to find out more.

Also, don't forget a drop or two for cooking is great! Essential oils don't go bad, so just leave in your spice cabinet and never worry about the expiration date. Saves room, money and it 100% pure.

Learn more about Oregano essential oil here.
