Which is better--turmeric powder or turmeric essential oil?

As a key botanical of the traditional Ayurvedic health practices of India, turmeric root and turmeric essential oil have a long history that has inspired modern uses of turmeric today. Steam distilled from the turmeric root, Turmeric essential oil has two unique chemical components, Turmerone and ar-Turmerone. Most commonly known for their nervous system* and emotional benefits, these components make Turmeric essential oil a staple in your daily health routine. Promoting feelings of positivity,* Turmeric is beneficial both internally and aromatically. Advantageous to the immune system, Turmeric may have soothing benefits that promote a positive immune response.* As well, Turmeric can help to promote clear, smooth, and radiant-looking skin. Use Turmeric daily to support healthy immune function and response along with healthy circulation.* In addition to the many benefits of Turmeric essential oil, Turmeric acts as a great burst of flavor to your favorite savory meals.

Immune Boost in a Bottle

If you’re like me, you are using many different methods to keep your family healthy. We have been eating well, moving our bodies, taking supplements and, of course, using essential oils. I was delighted when Emily Wright announced Pink Pepper as one of our permanent oils! I fell in love with Pink Pepper when we experienced it as a Mother’s Day gift, but I had no idea what a powerful tool it would be in our wellness tool kits!

Practical Tools for Teachers

A few weeks ago I was shopping with my daughter, and had a very silly observation in the toy aisle at target. (See photo) As a former teacher, I empathized with that poor Teacher Barbie. When that silly observation was shared thousands and thousands of times on Facebook, I started reading some comments. One particularly cynical platform shared the image, and I realized I needed to speak to the pain points underlying the jokes.

How to be a Confident Essential Oil User


If you’re just getting started using essential oils, here are a few ways you can grow in knowledge and confidence to take a natural, proactive approach with your health and wellness goals.

1) Understand the basics of using essential oils safely. If you haven’t been able to attend and introductory class, this online class will be helpful for you. Or visit this helpful page.

2) Find great resources for integrating oils into your everyday life. I like searching for the botanical name of the essential oil on Pubmed.gov to find peer-reviewed scholarly research. There are also books and resource manuals available. Be careful to select quality resources that cite scholarly research. Unfortunately, general aromatherapy guidelines don’t pertain to all brands of essential oils.

3) Only use tested, trusted essential oils. I only use doTERRA oils for this reason. When medical labs, hospitals, and researchers choose this brand of essential oil because of the purity and potency, you know it’s the real deal!

4) Read the product labels. If it has nutrition facts on the side, it can be used internally along those guidelines. Easy peasy.

5) Learn to listen to your body. This is one of those recommendations that would have sounded crazy to me before, but over the years, I have learned how to understand what oil to use for a particular situation by paying attention to what my body needs. As you gain experience, you will grow in this confidence. For example, the other day, I applied spearmint and eucalyptus to my feet in the morning to promote healthy respiratory function. Throughout the day, I noticed that my mental clarity was much better than normal. (Bye, mom brain!) Now, when I need a cognitive boost, I will diffuse or apply spearmint and eucalyptus.

6) Download doTERRA’s free Daily Drop app. You can receive bite sized pieces of education each day, and gradually grow in confidence for integrating oils into your everyday life.

7) Take advantage of continuing education opportunities through Essential Oils Daily Collective and doTERRA Corporate. I highly recommend the Empowered Life Series.

Respiratory Support on the Go!

When I was introduced to doTERRA in 2010, Breathe Respiratory Blend was one of the first "WOW!" experiences I had. A relative was visiting for the holidays and he hadn't been getting much rest because of some head congestion. While I normally don't mix blends with other blends, I added a few drops of Breathe + a few drops of Serenity to a diffuser and put it in our guest room for him. The oils went to work and created an environment for deep rest. The next morning he awoke refreshed and rested. 

I love applying Breathe over my airways to support healthy breathing during exercise. 

If my children need respiratory support in the night, I add a drop to their pillow for aromatic use while they sleep. I love meeting their needs without disturbing their slumber. 

When I travel I always take the Breathe Drops in my bag. For quick mess-free relief, pop a doTERRA Breathe Respiratory Drop in your mouth to receive cooling benefits for a dry or irritated throat. This combination of doTERRA Peppermint and Eucalyptus energizes, cools and relaxs as the drop slowly dissolves. Along with the soothing properties of the doTERRA Breathe Respiratory Drop, are the calming benefits which can provide a relief.

Basil on Everything!

Do you love fresh Basil pesto? I sure do. Did you know this lovely aromatic herb also has plenty of health benefits too? When the essential oil is distilled we can use it for a variety of purposes. 

Apply basil on the bone around your ear to promote healthy drainage and soothe occasional discomfort. 

As the kids are getting back to school, it’s important to help them stay focused while doing their school work. Once they come home, diffuse dōTERRA Basil essential oil in your child’s study area to promote a sense of focus for studying, reading, or completing other tasks that require mental clarity. The aroma from diffusing Basil creates a perfect stress-relieving experience. Not only can Basil be used to promote focus and alertness, but it can also add a little extra flavor to your cooking. The spicy, yet herbal taste of Basil adds the perfect flavor for meats, pastas, and entrée dishes.

How to Host a Convention Viewing Party

There's nothing quite like the excitement of a doTERRA convention! The new product announcements, the cutting-edge research, the global humanitarian projects, the confetti at Gala, the cross-line friendships, the aroma of essential oils over Salt Lake City... it's one of my favorite events each year. If you're hoping to build a doTERRA business, convention is the best investment you can make. 

In some circumstances, however, it's impossible for some of my team members to attend convention. What a blessing that doTERRA has made most of convention available via live stream again this year! Last year, I attended in person and purchased the online pass because I just couldn't take notes fast enough during some of the presentations. I love being able to go back and get beautiful screen shots from the online presentation, rather than trying to snap photos of the screens in the arena. 

Whether or not you're attending convention, it's a great idea to host a Convention Viewing Party! While nothing compares to the events presented by the doTERRA team, here are some things to make your Viewing Party extra special. 

Decide if you're hosting your party during the convention or afterward. If you host it during convention time, you will have the suspense and enthusiasm of new product announcements. If you host it afterward you can include a "Product Showcase" with your convention kit. (Kits are only available to convention attendees.) 

Choose a location. If you're planning a multi-day event, clear some space and any distractions. I love the idea of gathering together with your local team to watch the whole thing. You'll want to have access to a smart TV or a laptop, HDMI cable and TV or projector so that you can stream from your computer to a big screen. 


Make a guest list. Decide if your local team is going to camp out for the hours and hours of convention fun, or if you'll have a brief event featuring some highlights. 

Send invitations. My husband created this great invitation to match the theme. Feel free to download and customize it with your information. 

Plan refreshments. The doTERRA blog has some wonderful, oil-infused refreshment ideas. If you can, have other leaders contribute by bringing some too! 

Make it fun! The doTERRA events team goes to great lengths to provide fun photo opportunities around every bend. You can have fun decorations at your event too. Keep it simple or do it up! It's up to you. 

Diffuse something that helps increase focus without encouraging chatting through the presentations. You can pop the roller top from InTune and add a few drops to your Lumo with a pipette! 

You may also want to provide: notebooks and pens, throw blankets, and custom rollerball blends. 

What other ideas do you have to create a Convention Viewing Party that rivals the real event? Let me know if you'd like to contribute to my group Pinterest board

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.
