In the mood for a Super Easy DIY using some of the products from this month's promo?

This room spray smells INCREDIBLE. At first there's a top note of Grapefruit, mingled with just a hint of Frankincense. The Douglas Fir lends an apple-yness, and after being in the air for a little while the Grapefruit fades to a faint sparkle to reveal a heartier base note of apple, pine, and a spicy, earthy resin from the Frankincense. You can't help, but be in a good mood when you've got this magic in the air.

Grab your Frankincense, Douglas Fir, and Grapefruit essential oil.
In glass spray bottle add water
then add
15 drops of Frankincense
15 drops of Grapefruit
30 drops of Douglas Fir.
I like adding a pinch of Epsom salts, failing that you could add a pinch of salt to help the essential oils mix in with the water.
Shake the bottle of spray before each use.

Put on a jolly holiday song and spritz the room to the beat of merriment!

Note: Depending on the size of your spray bottle you may wish to use more or less oils, but make sure to keep the ratio of twice the amount of Douglas Fir to equal parts Frankincense and Grapefruit.
If you do not yet have Douglas Fir and want to make this spray, you could substitute White Fir or even Cypress. If you do not have Grapefruit, try Wild Orange, Bergamot, Lemon or Lime.

When you place your order you might want to add a little something from the Holiday Gift Guides... 

Have a look in the Gift Giving section of your back office, or the shop if you are a retail customer, and see if you can't pick a thing or two, even if you keep them for yourself instead of gifting them !
I find these videos quite moving and interesting, and they keep reminding me that I love dōTERRA for more than just the oils. Peace smells absolutely beautiful, it's our reassuring blend, it promotes feelings of peace, reassurance, and contentment and counteracts anxious and fearful emotions. An amazing blend of Vetiver Root, Lavender Flower, Ylang Ylang Flower, Frankincense Resin, Clary Sage Flower, Marjoram Leaf, Labdanum Leaf/Stalk, Spearmint Herb *sigh* so pretty! I had it on my diffuser necklace today!

So have a look, you will find a limited time offer items, maybe just the thing you need to cross off the last few names on your gift list!

Thanks for stopping by!

Liquid Sleep Blend and how a diffuser changed my sleeping habits

I've been looking into oils which may help a better night's sleep lately because it's one of my issues, and because it seems that and digestion are the problems that plague many people I encounter.

This recipe below is by Hayley Hobson (I believe in giving credit where it is due), it's a recipe for a roller bottle for those who don't have a ultrasonic diffuser (love mine, it changed my sleep!), if you don't have an actual roller bottle you can blend these oils in a little container and dip your finger in it... that will work just as well. If you'd like roller bottles, I can point you to some people who sell them (if you want oils and aren't a dōTERRA member/Wellness Advocate yet, I'll show you the way!)...

I haven't tried this particular blend yet but it's similar to a few I've been experimenting with, might make one today though (Yay! Got to love Saturdays!).

With any "recipe" you find with essential oils, you can actually modify it for either a smaller roller bottle, a diffuser blend, a balm, a room spray, or even into beauty products such as soaps and the like. You have to pay attention to a few things, like, is it an oils that is meant to be diluted for sensitive skins (so you definitely don't want to apply those neat), and use your head a little but yes, for instance, the recipe below, if I were to use it in a diffuser, I'd either mix everything up in a small bottle (or a bottle with a dropper) and divide the recipe by 5, fill my diffuser that goes on for 12 hours, and stop it when I wake up in the morning, and turn it on again the next night. It's pretty easy. Contact me if you have any questions, I'm happy to help.

Now, for those of you still reading, thanks. I've been using essential oils for a while, I still remember a horrible cold I had one year and kept sniffing Thyme from a tissue, I smelled like pepperoni pizza (that's the memory I have)... I was pretty unhealthy back then, and wish I'd known about blends such as On Guard or Easy Air/Breathe... But it seemed to help, enough for me to continue despite the pepperoni smell! 😁 I have always have some sort of essential or another around, Lemongrass and Tea Tree/Melaleuca to make a rubbish bin deodorising spray, Eucalyptus to remove stains on carpets (and that bloody blutack that gets everywhere!), to name only a few.

Fast forward to September 2014... Id' been following a blog which was full of GREAT essential oils ideas.... and she was mentioning this "ultrasonic diffuser"... well, that same month, I walked past the chemist (pharmacy) and they had a diffuser on special for $50, and it came with a calming oil blend (similar to the Lavender Peace/Serenity that dōTERRA offers), I bought two! One for our room, and one for the girls' room... I slept through the night that night! I was sold!

Then comes May 2015 I get an invitation to a "Winter Wellness with dōTERRA" class - "yay, let's go find out some more about those dōTERRA oils I read about on that blog", well, I was hooked. I had the BEST peppermint chocolate milk EVER (thanks to the glorious Peppermint essential oil dōTERRA offers), some amazing immune boosting power bites, and other fabulous dishes (dip, soup, etc).

A year and a half later, and a few empty bottles too and I can say that I didn't get the normal knock-me-out-flu that I normally have in Winter, Hubby who gets it too each year has benefited, and I solve more and more issues with natural solutions. And... I sleep a lot better, I don't have that WORRY-WORRY-WORRY feelings I get when I wake up in the middle of the night, I usually just roll over and fall back asleep, I also feel that generally I'm a lot more calm and grounded than I was (most often than not, I still get irritated by some things and some people! But I'm working on that.)

Feel free to come follow my facebook page where I post some articles I find which relates to essential oils and other tidbits of information.
Get in touch with me via  my facebook page, or via this blog, or by leaving a comment before if you'd like to get started with dōTERRA essential oils, and be part of my team and receive my support, and that of the community we have going on. If you just want to purchase one or two oils, you can do so directly from my affiliate link (whereby I get a small commission, which is much appreciated)

Good Night Diffuser Blend

I've been using this in my diffuser the past few nights and managed to sleep quite well so I'm happy!

I went for
Easy Air/Respiratory Blend (aka Breathe) because blooms are flowering these days and I tend to wake up congested (and though I don't want to admit it, I snore sometimes! *sigh*) and
Cedarwood because it promotes relaxation and
Sandalwood because it helps to lessen tension and promote emotional well-being. What more could you want for a great night's sleep?
The drop measurement are for about 80ml of water.

4 💧 Easy Air (Respiratory Blend a.k.a. Breathe)
2 💧 Cedarwood
1 💧 Hawaiian Sandalwood (or Sandalwood)
