A must have in your essential oil collection.

    Love these two essential oils. Today only, when you buy a Serenity Restful Blend you get a Lavender for FREE. This week is BOGO week at doTERRA and I will be sharing those deals right here and sharing with you what I use the for. 

    We use Serenity for foot rubs, foot soaks, when ever we feel overwhelmed, in our diffusers at bed time. When the kids were little we used it during play dates to keep everyone calm. 
    Here are the primary benefits of Serenity...


    • Promotes relaxation and a restful sleeping environment
    • Lessens feelings of tension and calms emotions
    • Calms the mind and soothes the senses
    • When accompanied with doTERRA Serenity Restful Complex Softgels, provides a natural solution for a restful night’s sleep*
    Serenity ingredients are Lavender Flower, Cedarwood, Ho Wood Leaf, Ylang Ylang Flower, Marjoram Leaf, Roman Chamomile Flower, Vetiver Root, Vanilla Bean Absolute, Hawaiian Sandalwood Wood.

    Lavender is my go to essential oil. I have this on me at all times. I use it every morning when I wake up I put a few drops on my hands and rub them together and inhale. It is great insect repellent, we use it for occasional skin irritations, I rub on the end of  my nose around my eyes before headed out on my morning hikes. I use 5-10 drops on our dryer balls and our clothes smell amazing and are so fluffy. 

    We call Lavender the Swiss army knife of essential oils.  I put it on the back of my children's necks when they are feeling anxious. I use it in our home made salve recipe here. I use it on my dogs, cat and horses (before they get their feet trimmed). We also make a spray with Lavender and Peppermint and use it for bed bugs and spiders and spray around our beds and on our sheets at night, If we were in the sun to long and forgot sunblock this spray is amazing for after being in the sun all day. 

    Here are the primary benefits of Lavender
    • Soothes occasional skin irritations
    • Taken internally, Lavender reduces anxious feelings and promotes peaceful sleep*
    • Helps ease feelings of tension.*
    I invite you to try these two essential oils, they are wonderful. Enjoy! Order here!

    Beating Summer Heat with Essential Oils

    This summer I got so excited to get our trailer out after three years and do some camping. Of course we haven't traveled much and in the beginning of June we went to Las Vegas and hours before we left our sub pump went out. I got it all sorted out and all was good with our amazing plumber before we left.

    The next week after we get home, we go camping and our A/C goes out while we are gone. It has been a week now with no A/C so I looked to my essential oils for cooling and all of this great information just came out in the doTERRA Living Magazine and I am going to share ways to beat the summer heat tips from doTERRA and from me and my families personal experience on what works best for us. So enjoy and learn new ways to stay cool this summer. 

    Stay refreshed even when away from any air-conditioned haven.

    Outdoor Tips
    When you’re having a blast outside, don’t forget these tips:

    Spray Bottle - When taken outside for long periods of time, water in a glass spray
    bottle can quickly warm up and lose its advantage. Counteract this and keep cool by adding in
    refreshing non-citrus oils that will cool you down regardless. Cooling oils include Peppermint, Basil,
    Cardamom, Cilantro, or doTERRA Breathe . An extra tip: when you do go to spray, start with your
    pulse points like your wrists and neck. Spraying these areas will help to cool your whole body more
    quickly. We use aluminum spray bottles which works great when you are camping. 

    Wear the right clothes. Choose fabrics that breathe and allow your sweat to evaporate more
    quickly. These fabrics include cotton, hemp, rayon (if you live in a dry climate), or linen. Moisturewicking
    fabrics (found most often in athletic wear) also have a special weave that makes them more
    permeable, and wick the sweat away.

    Stay hydrated. You need to keep replacing the water you lose through perspiration. Avoid the
    tempting sugary, caffeinated, and alcoholic beverages to avoid dehydrating your body; water is always the best choice when you’re out and about. If you’re looking for added flavor, a drop of Lime,Lemon, Wild Orange, Tangerine, or Grapefruit oils can easily add some variety. You can also re-hydrate with the foods you eat. Try a summer favorite like the appropriately named watermelon.


    Eat lighter meals. Many fruits and vegetables are in season when the weather is hot. (This may
    just be nature’s way of telling us something about keeping cool.) Plants are simply easier for us to
    digest, which in turn produces less heat in your body than digesting a fatty hamburger. It’s a healthy
    way to stay cool, too— incorporating more fruits and veggies into your diet is a good idea no matter
    what your summer plans are.

    Indoor Tips
    When you’re on vacation or even at home, sometimes the air conditioning isn’t there when you need
    it to be. Here are a few ideas for taking some of the pressure off your AC unit, and keeping your bills
    lower:
    Point your fan at an open window. The day’s heat gets trapped inside your home, and can be
    hard to get rid of. Putting the fan facing the window sucks the hot air away and blows it back
    outside. You can use a temperature controller to automatically turn the fan on or off depending on
    the temperature.

    Diffuse oils. Certain oils like Spearmint, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, or doTERRA Breathe possess
    refreshing aromas that can help you feel cool and invigorated. If you live in a dry climate, it will add
    a little moisture to the air as well.

    Use your décor to your advantage. Blinds and curtains block the sun’s rays out and shield your
    space from the heat. Close the windows and use insulated drapes when the sun is out, and open
    them at night to let in the cooler air. If you simply must have an open window, you can also hang a
    damp towel or sheet in front of the window to cool the air coming in.

    Sleep cool. There are a few different options for making your nighttime cooler. Try putting your
    sheets into a plastic bag and putting them in your freezer for a few minutes. When you’re ready for
    bed, put the chilled sheets on your bed and enjoy the cool feeling. Alternately, add a few drops of
    Peppermint to a high-mist glass spray bottle and dampen your top sheet.

    Cool down your body. Take a cool shower or bath when you can’t stand the heat anymore. You
    can also drink iced Peppermint water. We recommend making your ice-cubes using Peppermint by filling your ice tray with water and adding one drop of Peppermint per ice cube.



    Tips for After Sun
    My boys got so sunburn on our first camping trip to the lake. Poor things, but now they know to put sun block on their ankles.
    In a 10 mL roll-on add 5 drops Melaleuca, 5 drops Roman Chamomile, 5 drops Helichrysum, 5
    drops Lavender, and top with Fractionated Coconut oil.
    Add 20 drops Lavender oil to 2 ounces of Fractionated Coconut oil and rub into skin. (Alternately,
    you can add the Lavender to a glass spray bottle with 1 ounce Fractionated Coconut Oil and 1
    ounce of water.)
    Add 5 drops Peppermint to 5 drops Lavender and 4 drops vitamin E oil in a 4-ounce glass spray
    bottle and top with witch hazel.

    I also just recently purchased witch hazel at the drug store. Since our A/C is out we have made spray bottles to keep us cool. We open up the house at night, then shut the windows first thing in the morning. There is about three hours in the late afternoon that is really hot but we are surviving. We also have a basement so it is cool down there.

    Thank you for letting me share and keep cool this summer.
