My favorite essential oil diffuser

Over the years, I've tried so many essential oil diffusers, and this one is my all-time favorite! 

 The doTERRA Lumo Diffuser is convenient when you are going to be away for an extended period because of its run-time features. It’s multiple color options are a great addition to a child’s bedroom when diffusing at night to keep the room slightly lit. I love the look of the maple wood base. 

This diffuser can run for up to 10 hours which makes it perfect for classrooms and offices. I've selected the Lumo for the Essential Oils Daily Diffuser Lending Program. If you're a Nashville business open to trying essential oils for a week in your setting, I'm happy to loan you a Lumo along with a few crowd-pleasing, uplifting, cleansing oils. I love working with professionals to integrate oils into your gym, office, classroom, or boutique.  For more information on this program, contact me

Cedarwood is Versatile!

It's always a wise investment to purchase quality oils that can be used for many purposes. 

Cedarwood is sometimes considered "Poor Man's Frankincense" because it has some similar chemical constituents, but costs a fraction of the price, at just five cents per drop! 

Did you know that dōTERRA Cedarwood is a great oil for promoting relaxation? With properties that help to soothe the mind and body, the warm, woody scent of Cedarwood essential oil can create a relaxing environment when used topically or aromatically. After a long day, diffuse to create a calming environment or apply one to two drops to the bottom of your child’s feet to help soothe and calm them when they wake up frightened.

Not only is it used to help you have feelings of calmness, it also helps keep your skin looking healthy. During your facial routine, add one to two drops to your facial toner or moisturizer to promote clear, healthy looking skin.

Cedarwood can be added to conditioner to nourish hair and promote healthy growth. 

Everyone in our household loves cedarwood, but do you know who doesn't care for it at all? Pesky insects like moths and bed bugs. I love including several drops of cedarwood in our DIY linen spray.

My children ask for these each day!

Are your children heading back to school soon? Our back to school preparedness plan involves soaking up the last days of summer, getting plenty of sunshine, rest, and nutrient-dense food from the garden. 

One way to give little bodies what they need is with proper supplementation. My children enjoy the watermelon flavor of A2Z Chewables and I love that they have folate derived from lemon peel.

Children 4 years and older can enjoy these natural watermelon flavored supplements twice a day with meals. Encourage your children by taking the dōTERRA a2z Chewables alongside with them, adults can take up to three a day. With school right around the corner, these supplements are a great way to strengthen your young one’s immune systems before *seasonal threats occur.

Bandage Boost

My children are obsessed with character bandages from the health and beauty section of the store, are yours? Maybe because we rarely shop for anything else in that section. (Thanks to Loyalty Rewards) 

It's not uncommon for me to find my three-year-old applying bandages to herself just for fun--Boo boos or not. The other day she was digging in the bathroom drawer and asked, "Mommy, where's the stuff that goes on before this?" I went in to find her holding a bandage and hunting for the Correct X

When your children are busy, taking care of their skin in distressed moments can be difficult. Apply doTERRA Correct-X to soothe and purify skin during the healing process to keep summer playtime going. The blend of Frankincense, Melaleuca, Helichrysum, Lavender, Jojoba, and Cedarwood essential oils combine to protect and promote healthy-looking skin. These key ingredients are versatile and help soothe and improve the texture of skin.

Rootbeer Float Diffuser Blend

My grandma always loved to make root beer floats, and I love thinking of her. However, I haven't indulged in a root beer float for years! Just a few drops of each of these oils take me back to those happy childhood memories.

Wintergreen is stimulating and soothing. A tiny drop packs a potent aroma!

Unlike the cereal, however, the oils will be beneficial for your health and mood! 

Lemon is cleansing, uplifting, and purifying. 

Ylang ylang is calming and relieves tension.

Spearmint Essential Oil

Do you love summer, but hate the heat that comes with it? Cool off with doTERRA Spearmint! Its sweet, refreshing aroma is cleansing and uplifting, making it ideal to evoke a sense of focus and positive mood. Spearmint is very different from Peppermint, and is a milder option to use on children and persons with sensitive skin. I especially love the combination of Spearmint plus Ginger in Fractionated Coconut Oil for soothing issues associated with air travel and motion. 

Spearmint can also be great for use in the kitchen. Try it in a salad as part of a homemade dressing, a spearmint julep, or any of your favorite desserts. Spearmint also makes for a great addition to any meat marinade recipe.

How to Customize Your Ideal Wellness Subscription Box

If you're wondering what your priorities are, just look at your pocketbook and your calendar. Those things tell us the truth about what we really value. To get out of a reactionary survival mode, we need to plan ahead. By planning ahead, we can shift our priorities into our reality to live the life we REALLY want. This is one of the reasons why I use doTERRA's subscription box option called the Loyalty Rewards Program. 

Loyalty Rewards is a monthly subscription box that is COMPLETELY customizable. You get to edit the products you receive, on which date, your preferred method of payment, preferred type of shipping, and shipping address. 

These items are available at 25% below retail, with shipping reimbursed in product points, and you earn up to 30% back in product points! 

It really is the wise way to get the highest quality oils and wellness products. 

STEP 1: Make a list of your top health goals and priorities. 

Take some time to think about yourself and the members of your household. What would you like to feel less? What would you like to feel more? 

STEP 2: Schedule a wellness consultation with your wellness advocate.

Educate yourself on the doTERRA products that may support the goals you listed. If you're not sure where to begin, chat with a wellness advocate who will point you to the right resources, and find the products that support your goals.

For example, if you said, "I would like to feel more energy." your wellness advocate can dig into the specific products that can boost energy. From there, you can make a list of the things you would like to try first. 

If you said, "I would like to reduce toxicity around my home." your wellness advocate can guide you on a journey of making over your home and personal care routines to live a green lifestyle. You can make a list and prioritize which of those areas you'd like to tackle first. 

If you don't already have a wellness advocate, the Essential Oils Daily Team would love to help you! Fill out the contact form attached, and we will be in touch. 

STEP 3: Decide your budget.

doTERRA uses a point system for products to track rewards. When purchasing oils at wholesale one point or PV is equal to one dollar. Other products have a PV that is slightly lower than the dollar amount. For example, the Lifelong Vitality Pack of supplements would be $106.00 at retail cost, is $79.50 at wholesale cost, and is 60PV. Always look at the PV category and dollar amount when managing your order to see if it's meeting your criteria and goals. 

If you spend between 1-50PV you maintain your current rewards percentage back.
If you spend 50PV or more, you are on track to increase percentages. (see link) 
If you spend 100PV or more as a wellness advocate, you are eligible to receive commissions.     If you spend 125PV by the 15th of the month, you receive the FREE Product of the Month. 

Based on the priorities you sorted out with your wellness advocate, and your budget, select your first month's order completely customized to your needs. Keep a working list of your goals, and you'll always know what to place on your order the following month!
