SERENITY
Serenity essential oil blend calms the mind, relaxes the body, and soothes the soul, providing a safe haven from life’s daily stressors. The essential oils in this must-have blend were meticulously chosen to lessen tension, calm emotions, and leave a peaceful feeling. Serenity is the perfect blend to diffuse at bedtime for a restful night’s sleep, to calm a restless baby or child, or to help reduce anxious feelings so many of us deal with. Serenity combines the soothing scents of Lavender, Marjoram, Roman Chamomile, and Ylang Ylang with the warming aromas of Hawaiian Sandalwood and Vanilla Bean to create a prized essential oil blend that every home, family, and individual needs.

*USES

Apply to bottoms of feet at bedtime to promote restful sleep.
Add 2–3 drops into a warm bath to create a peaceful, renewing aroma.
Diffuse to help promote relaxation and reduces anxious feelings.

BALANCE
The warm, woody aroma of Balance, dōTERRA®’s grounding blend, creates a sense of calm and well-being. We perfectly blend Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile with Fractionated Coconut Oil to offer an enticing fragrance that promotes tranquility and a sense of balance. Spruce, one of the oils in Balance, was used by Native Americans for medicinal and spiritual reasons and is still used today to bring harmony to the mind and body. Ho Wood, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile can soothe sore muscles and joints, promote circulation, and relax the body, while Frankincense supports cellular health and overall well-being.

*USES

Begin your day by putting Balance on the bottom of your feet to lessen feelings of stress throughout the day.
Balance is a great oil blend to use during an AromaTouch Hand Massage.
Feeling anxious? Apply Balance to your wrists or neck to help with nerves.
Diffuse in your car during road trips to create a calming, soothing environment.

WHISPER
dōTERRA Whisper Blend for Women is a complex and diverse blend that entices the senses and combines with each individual’s chemistry to create a uniquely personal fragrance. Each essential oil in the blend provides an inviting aroma of its own, but when combined, these oils offer a distinct scent that intrigues the mind and senses to both the wearer and those passing by. Regarded as the most precious flowers in the perfume and aromatherapy industries, Jasmine and Ylang Ylang’s euphoric aromas combine with the warm and spicy scents of Patchouli, Vanilla, Cinnamon, and Cocoa to make this blend unmatched in complexity and aromatic influence.

*USES

Apply to wrists, back of neck, and pulse points for a distinct and individual fragrance.
Diffuse or add to clay pendants for a unique aromatic experience.
Dispense one to two drops in the palm of the hand and rub on clothing, scarves, and coats to experience its calming and blissful scent throughout the day.

Clean Up Your Make Up

Hiiii guys!!

Today I wanted to share an amazing product that I’ve just found and fell in love with!

Josie Maran’s Serum Foundation –  It’s an organic make up brand so you’re using the best on your skin. 

Why use organic cosmetics??
Our skin is like a sponge that absorbs everything we put on it into the blood stream.  Most make up commonly used is full of harsh chemicals and stuff we can’t even pronounce when reading the labels!  Why would we want to use them on our skin after knowing that these chemicals are being absorbed into our bodies??

I have been using green products all around my home for the last few years but for some reason my make up was the last thing that I realized I needed to clean up!  We have so many options now with the demand for healthy products so vote with your dollar.  Clean up your make up products and choose organic, eco-friendly products!

I love this foundation it goes on white and blends perfectly to match the color of your skin! Josie Maran offers a lot of amazing products, check them out here:

“Good Broth Will Resurrect the Dead”


BONE BROTH

Bone broth is a superfood, full of minerals that our body can absorb easily & that are necessary for our bone health. It is used for healing many diseases like diabetes, tuberculosis, muscle diseases and cancer!

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN STOCK:

Ingredients:

1 Whole Free Range Organic Chickens

4 Quarts Filtered Water

3-4 Celery Ends (I save mine in the freezer, until I’m ready to make a broth)

1 Onion Coarsely Chopped

2 Carrots Chopped

4-5 Garlic Cloves halved

2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar

Directions: You can add other veggies if you wish 😉 make it your creation!

Use a chicken and either bake it (then strip off all the meat) or put it in a crockpot for an hour or two and let the meat fall off.  Then use the meat for a meal and throw all the bones back into the crockpot, along with the celery ends, coarsely chopped onion, garlic, carrots, and apple cider vinegar.  Let stand in crockpot for 30 minutes to an hour.  Then put the crock put on low for 1-2 days. The longer you leave it the more the bones will release.  Strain your broth into a container and chill in the refrigerator. Once it’s chilled scoop off the fat from the top of the stock. (I store it in a gallon wide mouthed glass jar.)  You’re broth is ready to drink!

Drink one cup a day to get your calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulfur and trace minerals.  Broth stores in the fridge for 3 days.  If you’re making this for 1-2 people you may want to freeze half until you’re ready to drink it.

Green Cleaning!

Let’s switch those nasty chemical cleaning supplies out for home made green products!

Women who work at home have a 54% higher death rate from cancer than those who work away from home. The 15-year study concluded it was as a direct result of the much higher exposure rate to toxic chemicals in common household products!

—Toronto Indoor Air Conference 1990

Take a look at the statistics on household cleaning supplies below:
