I find so much inspiration, love and support from my oil community! These women in this community mean the world to me. So I thought it might be fun to introduce some of the Oil Babes that influence me and teach me how to love and heal! I get so many questions asking why I love my oil community, so I thought it might be fun to hear how the women around me answer!

@ourcozynook

Tell me about yourself and why you started using essential oils?

I’m a wife, mom to 2 precious little girls, and a lover of reading, hot yoga, meditation, and a lifelong student.  I love learning about everything, and it has become such a passion of mine to learn about everything these oils have to offer.  Our family has been on a wellness journey over the last 10 years since my husband finished treatment for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. This has taken a lot of forms, but essential oils has been a huge piece of the puzzle over the last 3 years.  Our oil journey was specifically spurred on to help manage some really difficult digestive issues my youngest daughter had from birth, and it was so exciting and empowering as a mom to see these oils work in my home!

What motivated you to start building a business with doTERRA? When did you decide you would commit to it for the long term?
When I bought my original kit, I chatted for awhile with Sarah Vansteenkiste about the business side.  She was so patient and kind to me answering all of my questions about my daughter, and I realized that I would love to do what she was doing.  Educate others, help them begin to solve their health issues, and empower them to direct their own path.  She let me know that our team was a special place and she was right.  Once I became a part of the community, and began working directly with Jenna, I saw how much potential their was for my growth, both personally and financially, and as a leader.  doTERRA helped to unlock so much potential that I had, that was sitting right in front of me just waiting for the right opportunity to shine.

How has your life changed since using and sharing these oils?

I loved having the chance to reflect on this question. My life has changed in every way possible.  My family, my personal development, my mindset, my finances, my knowledge of my body and how to best care for it. But the thing that has changed that I value most deeply is my worldview.  I think we so easily become entrenched in our own little bubbles if we aren’t careful.  We forget that connecting to each other makes us stronger, and gives us more empathy to support, and encourage one another as we each navigate the hills and valleys of our lives.  I’ve always felt that my purpose was to be a connector of women.  Our stories are our most valuable asset, and they belong so uniquely to us.  Having the chance to hear these stories, and to share theirs, as well as my own, has given me so much peace and passion.  I feel so firmly that I am exactly where I should be in my life.

What has been an obstacle or limiting belief in your business that you have since learned to overcome, and how?

I think almost every sees this business as a sales job, and initially I did too.  When you view it with that lens, it can feel impersonal, and scary and hard to connect to.  I had also told myself the story that I wasn’t any good at sales, so I wasn’t sure how I would be successful in this business, even though I loved the products, the company, and the community.  Once I stopped looking it as sales, and began to view it as education, everything changed for me.  I realized that I wasn’t selling the oils.  I was educating others on the options available to them, the value of holistic solutions, and offering them access to a community of like-minded folks that everyone could benefit from.  This simple shift changed how I felt about myself, how I felt about my business, and I found I immediately attracted more folks because they were seeing my passion, rather than my fear.  And on top of that, we are in such an age of information consumption, that I believe people truly value this information more than anything.

What is a piece of advice you give a new builder starting their business journey?

Celebrate and honor who you are and where you’re at on this journey.  Every business is built in a different way; and that’s a good thing! Your personality, your interests, your style of education and support will help people be drawn to YOU.  People are craving options and control when it comes to their bodies and their families, but what people are really needing and responding to are the relationships they have within that framework. So if you can find a way to honestly and authentically connect and love the people you work with, then you’ll never struggle to succeed.

What has surprised you most about building a doTERRA business?

The community has been not only the biggest surprise, but the biggest blessing.  I was a lonely stay-at-home mom in a new state when I found doTERRA. I had just had a new baby, and she was so colicky and difficult.  Things felt hard and heavy, and I kept searching for myself in each day.  I kept looking in the corners of my life for a part of me that wasn’t a role, a part of my life that was just mine.  I needed a way to step into each day with a sense of purpose and I found that here. The gals on my team have never felt like business partners to me; they feel like friends; like family.  So often we peg women as competitive, and instead what I’ve found are some of the deepest, most profound conversations and relationships of my life.

Cleansing Candida

April 22, 2017

My dear friend Jennie is truly amazing! She is creating a program for women to help reset their bodies through nutrition and holistic remedies. Read more and register through the link below:

IMG_0867

When I started my doTERRA business one year ago I knew I wanted my focus to be on educating women on the best ways to support their bodies through holistic practices.  My goal is to teach about how amazing the body is at healing, repairing, and cleansing itself – we sometimes lack the tools and the knowledge needed to support these incredible functions that are biologically inherent in all of us. This new program I have developed is near and dear to me because of the struggles I have had in the past with Candida. I have been down the awful road of recurring yeast and skin infections, brain fog, exhaustion and mood swings. Because I have been down that path and have overcome those stumbling blocks I feel it is my honor and privilege to be able to serve other women and share my journey so they don’t have to feel alone in these struggles. If I could I would shout from the rooftops, “please don’t assume that the misery you are in now is your new “normal” just because you’ve tried nearly everything and nothing has changed! Don’t just settle for feeling terrible; take charge of your body! There are tools to help you, there are ways to get past all the road blocks you foresee in your mind. I am here for you… we, as a community of women, are here for YOU. We want you to succeed and we want you to be your best self so that you can show up in this world as the beautiful, amazing, vibrant woman that you are.

This program is designed to guide you through cleansing Candida from your body and reset your body to feeling whole and full of vitality. So, whether you decide the path for you includes just changing your diet, or adding a few supplements, or overhauling your entire daily routine there is something for you in this program. I have teamed up with a nutritional therapist who is carefully designing a meal plan, including recipes to follow during our 30 day reset. Together we will provide you with all the information you need for the 30 days as well as a private Facebook group where you can feel free to ask us anything and provide support to the other women in the group. We will post information, articles, and host a live Q&A session during our 30 days together. My goal is to empower you with the tools you need to move past Candida ruling your life and help you take back control of your body! There are three different options to join this program starting at only $50! Register by April 25th to ensure that you receive your packet on time. We begin our program on May 1st!

Meet Stacey!
@halfhealthymom
Tell me about yourself and why you started using essential oils?
 I’m a Southerner who has been transplanted to the DC area with my family of two kiddos, two pups, and my wonderful husband. I’m a little bit hippie, a lover of spicy foods, obsessed with college football, and a total girls-girl. I got a doTERRA account as my last effort to give essential oils a-go since I had been picking up other brands over the years. I was struggling during my last postpartum experience with severe hormone and adrenal issues, and wanted more holistic options in my arsenal to get to the root issues.

What motivated you to start building a business with doTERRA? When did you decide you would commit to it for the long term?

I’ll never forget when someone first approached me on how to get these oils in their hands. I had no idea what to do! But suddenly, I also felt like I had a huge opportunity in front of me to help other women navigate this new chapter of their health like I was. Honestly, my gut told me I had no other option but to provide that support. I didn’t know what the business would look like for me, but I knew I owed it to myself to explore. So because of the smile it brings to my face when I get a text saying, “this was the only thing to help my teething baby” paired with the fun I have sharing these oils and the amazing relationships I have made through this business – no doubt I’m a lifer.

How has your life changed since using and sharing these oils?

When you find something that lights up your soul, that transfers over into other areas of your life. So everything feels a bit brighter. It’s incredibly fulfilling to know I’m on a path that not only serves the wellness of others, but also allows me to shine in my own way. I know my family and closest friends would say they get to experience a better version of Stacey, the mom, wife, and friend now too. Oh, and bonus points that my job and passion lies in natural wellness. I definitely do a better job honoring my body and mind than I ever have before.

What has been an obstacle or limiting belief in your business that you have since learned to overcome, and how?

I think it’s easy – especially in the very beginning – to get caught up in what you think the business should look like, perhaps by comparing your journey to others. I think all that does is distract from your own gifts to share. There’s no one way to build a doTERRA business, and that’s the beauty! How one person builds may not work for you, and that is completely ok. As a mentor now, I see firsthand incredible and distinct strengths that each of my builders have, and I’d never want them to do anything other than what brings them joy and fulfillment in this job. It actually serves as a great reminder to me 😉 Do what feels right to you, and that’s where success and happiness will lie.

What is a piece of advice you give a new builder starting their business journey?

Stop standing in your own way. And what I mean by that is, don’t give limiting beliefs the power to inhibit you, whether that’s taking the first step or your next step. This business is for any woman who wants it and is willing to believe in her talent. I love this quote by Henry Ford, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right”. Always believe in your strengths and your ability to help others in your own way.

What has surprised you most about building a doTERRA business?

The deep friendships I’ve gained are the most beautiful surprise of this whole journey! And I’m sure most of TDE Co. ladies will say something similar. It’s brought me closer to old friends and has given me the opportunity to connect, work, create, and laugh with incredible new souls across the country.

Meet Erica!

@ericatraster

Tell me about yourself and why you started using essential oils?
I’m Erica — holistic health coach, yoga teacher and mom to two littles (soon to be three!) that has been on my holistic health journey for over five years. I began using essential oils during my first pregnancy so I could more naturally clean my home. Once I started to experience the emotional benefits the oils provide and how beautifully they complement my yoga + self care practices I was all in!

What motivated you to start building a business with doTERRA? When did you decide you would commit to it for the long term?
I initially wanted to be involved in the business because I saw it as a great way to provide my existing clients with the benefits I had been experiencing with essential oils. It didn’t take long for me to realize this was the exact vehicle I was looking for to share my story, authentically educate other women about the power of taking care of themselves and be home with my kids. Once I knew I had found my home there was no going back.

How has your life changed since using and sharing these oils?

doTERRA has helped me find my voice. The voice that knows what is best for my children and has the courage to speak up for them. The voice that knows that I have something meaningful to share with this world and with other women and shares it. The voice that wants to help other women be able to do the same and does.

What has been an obstacle or limiting belief in your business that you have since learned to overcome, and how?

There are so many limiting beliefs I never knew I had that I continue to work through. The biggest one over the past six months has been that I can’t create the business that I want to and be the mother that I want to at the same time. I kept telling myself that something had to be different in order for me to find success. Once I realized that this was not only a limiting belief, but that it was crippling my growth as a business owner and as a person, I knew I had to let it go. Daily affirmations around letting go of my limiting beliefs were huge in allowing this to happen. The untrue story I kept repeating to myself simply had to end.

What is a piece of advice you give a new builder starting their business journey?

I love to meet the women on my team where they are. To let them know that they matter and that their story matters. This business is really simply — we connect ourselves to our story, to the message that we want to share, and we authentically share that with others. With that mindset and commitment, anything is possible.

What has surprised you most about building a doTERRA business?

This beautiful community of women. There are almost no words. To those that uplift, inspire and support one another every single day. That are each other’s biggest cheerleaders. It was the last thing I expected when I began this journey and it’s hands down the best thing about it.

@oneholistichome

Tell me about yourself and why you started using essential oils?

I’m a writer, dreamer, eternal optimist, mother of 4 (including one with Rett Syndome) and lover of life. I started using Essential Oils about 4 years ago after attending my first dōTERRA class. Not long after, my very first baby was diagnosed with Autism & I immediately turned to the oils to help my little family cope. I instantly fell in love with the way my oils made me feel empowered as a Mother, and especially as a Special-Needs Mother. I found great success using them, and never looked back.

What motivated you to start building a business with doTERRA? When did you decide you would commit to it for the long term?

It took me a long time to get up the courage to build my dōTERRA business. I knew that the oils worked for our family & I believed I had a message to share, but I was hesitant to put myself out there. Eventually I realized that NOT sharing was chipping away at a piece of my soul. With some encouragement from those I loved, I hit the ground running and quickly found so much fulfillment and joy in being open about this part of my life. This is always where I was meant to be.

How has your life changed since using and sharing these oils?

I have found a deeper sense of myself in building my doterra business. The personal development has changed not only me, but my husband, my kids, every person in my innermost circle. As I expand and learn, I am able to show up as the woman I want to be, and share the gift of possibility and hope with others. I feel inspired to create the life I WANT to live, and there is a deep gratitude in knowing I can absolutely do it.

What has been an obstacle or limiting belief in your business that you have since learned to overcome, and how?

This business is constantly pushing me to examine my weaknesses and work to overcome them. I’ve had to become vulnerable, brave, and resilient. My biggest obstacle has (of course) been myself, and those voices in my head that tell me I’m not good enough, smart enough, or worthy of all that I want. I overcome these thoughts by showing up and doing the work anyway. Always, my actions lead my heart back to a place of belief; to that place where I know I am on the right path.

What is a piece of advice you give a new builder starting their business journey?

When I started to build, the best piece of advice I received was to make time for your business every single day. That’s something that stayed with me, and is a big part of the reason I have the team I do. From day one, I have made my business a priority and taken it seriously. I would pass that same piece of advice on to a new builder. This business takes showing up, every single day, with a heart wide open and willing.

What has surprised you most about building a doTERRA business?

Hands down, the friendships I have found have surprised me the most. I could have predicted the personal growth, the stretching and pushing, the learning and changing, but I could have NEVER adequately predicted the relationships I would find here. In building my business, I have met some of the best women on this planet, and made friends that have carried me through some of the darkest days of my life, even from across the country. These are friendships I will carry with me for the rest of my life, and that is something I can never adequately express gratitude for.

@thesoutherndrop

Tell me about yourself and why you started using essential oils?

I’m a born and bred Cajun, living in the heart of southern Louisiana. As a health and science guru, I “officially” graduated from college with a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing and a license as a registered nurse, but I couldn’t unwire my brain from wondering what alternative therapy could be used in conjunction with/or instead of western medicine. I was taught to observe and reason and allowing other people to constantly determine the outcome and state of our health- mainly the minor issues or lifestyle measures- just didn’t resonate with what I knew to be true of our amazing bodies and minds. After being exposed to the benefits of aromatherapy during my Junior year, I spent the next few years absorbing as much as I could about essential oils, purchasing them from a myriad of places before finally seeing through my research that there was only one brand I truly wanted to center my trust and life around… doTERRA!

What motivated you to start building a business with doTERRA? When did you decide you would commit to it for the long term?

I connected with Jenna on social media during the baby years of her business and she was my sheer inability to control my sharing habits with everyone that I encountered. She gently found a way to make me realize, over the course of a few months that adapting to the business venture side of the oils didn’t have to be scary. I trusted what she saw in me and committed to doing whatever I could to make sure I succeeded in using my personal talents to reach others who would be blessed by the powerful beauty of these oils!

How has your life changed since using and sharing these oils?

I have transitioned from a curious mother to an empowered and knowledgable educator and mentor. My purpose as an adult feels much deeper and passionate that it every has before and I have a newfound confidence in my ability to communicate with and educate others. The financial blessing of my business has allowed me freedom in areas once more restricted and my ability to be a blessing to those around me grows daily.

What has been an obstacle or limiting belief in your business that you have since learned to overcome, and how?

Not allowing the scarcity that is prevalent in the minds of so many around me was tricky. We will always encounter those who just aren’t ready (and who may never be) to embrace the unlimited potential of someone who is persistent + passionate + has the momentum of a phenomenal company and team filling her sails. To truly stand above the weight of those trying to drag you down is a laborious process, but if you remain strong in who you are, and why you began in the first place, you will prevail- and you will inspire countless individuals in dire need every step of the way.

What is a piece of advice you give a new builder starting their business journey?

Be willing to adapt. Maintain flexibility like never before. You will learn more about yourself and your heart in these coming months than ever before. Know that change is okay, even though sometimes uncomfortable. You will one day look back and see that where you ended up was nowhere near where you imagined. Your journey will wind through unknown areas, you may brand yourself, then rebrand once more. Your “why” will change, and it’s all just part of the journey, so enjoy it!

What has surprised you most about building a doTERRA business?

The community of women that I have embraced as my family that I couldn’t survive without, but wouldn’t have known otherwise. The blessings you will find will be tenfold what you imagine, and sometimes come in many hidden ways, but if you leave yourself open to greatness, and allow yourself to dissolve into this network of fabulous women and men, you will come out the other end with more gracious appreciation than you ever thought possible!

@kerrymulfessentials

Tell me about yourself and why you started using essential oils?

Two sweet little boys call me Mama in Southern California, Long Beach to be exact. I left the fashion world to stay home with my babies and try to incorporate a little style into my daily oiling. In keeping up with social trends, essential oils came across my path and today I’m so grateful for these timeless gifts.

What motivated you to start building a business with doTERRA? When did you decide you would commit to it for the long term?

I want to have my cake and eat it too- run a business and earn an income all while being home with my kids and dōTERRA has been the answer to that for me. I’ve remained committed to this business from day one because I refuse to be anything other than successful. My journey has been slow, but never unwavering. I believe that all good things take time and I let that lead me in my business.

How has your life changed since using and sharing these oils?

I’ve found my place in life- a tribe that I love working alongside, a product I truly believe in, a career path that I envision myself doing so long as I can place a drop oil in my hands or someone else’s.

What has been an obstacle or limiting belief in your business that you have since learned to overcome, and how?

That I already know what someone is going to say- I can’t place my assumptions on others and I’ll never know the true answer until I ask. Vulnerability is key in this business and if we don’t put ourselves out there, we won’t get anywhere.

What is a piece of advice you give a new builder starting their business journey?

Your path is your own- it’s never going to look just like anyone else’s and you have to trust that you’re right where you need to be in any given moment. Try to see the beauty in that rather than letting ‘different’ be discouraging.

What has surprised you most about building a doTERRA business?

How much I’ve grown to appreciate working within a MLM structure. There’s support and mentorship when you need it and at the end of the day, you’re also your own CEO.

@holisticwifehappylife

Tell me about yourself and why you started using essential oils?

I’m a work-at-home mom of four boys; two of which have special needs. My twins premature birth and several months stay in the NICU is what led us to look deeper into a more homeopathic approach. I became a holistic health & nutrition practitioner so that I could understand more fully how to serve my family’s needs as well as a community of like-minded women with their own unique stories to tell.

What motivated you to start building a business with doTERRA? When did you decide you would commit to it for the long term?

In the beginning, I was motivated to host a class simply to have my oils paid for. It didn’t take long for me to see that this was indeed a creative outlet for me. I found a space for my voice to be heard. I knew after I attended convention that doTERRA was going to be the vehicle to the life that I wanted for our family.

How has your life changed since using and sharing these oils?

I was happy before I started my doTERRA business, but I was missing something. I knew that I didn’t want to go back to being a classroom teacher full-time, but I needed something that was just mine. Since carving out a space for myself, my family, my marriage, and my children, are all better for it.

What has been an obstacle or limiting belief in your business that you have since learned to overcome, and how?

For the better part of the first year of my business, I told myself, “If I could just get to the rank of silver, than our family will be able to afford the therapy programs that our boys need!” I never imagined that I would be worthy of a higher rank. I didn’t value my voice and I didn’t think anyone would want to hear what I had to say. Things started to really shift for me when I attended the doTERRA convention last fall. I saw all sorts of people walking around as diamonds and above and I thought, “why not me?!”

What is a piece of advice you give a new builder starting their business journey?

This is not a race. Pace yourself. You will get burnt out if you are constantly running. Take a deep breath. Answer that email tomorrow. Be present in your business, but also be present in your life. Fill your cup, so that you have enough to fill others.

What has surprised you most about building a doTERRA business?

This journey has been colorful. In the beginning, it was such a beautiful surprise every time the oils seemed to do what they were intended to. But now, its about those who come in contact with doTERRA for the first time and watching them discover the healing power of the oils. As for the business, absolutely 100%, the biggest surprise has been the incredible community of women that were so blessed to be a part of. I love the connections we make. The friendships. The support. And most importantly, knowing that I am not alone in motherhood. But that there is a huge network of moms that are always ready and willing to help out.

@cleanseyourlife
Tell me about yourself and why you started using essential oils?
I started using essential oils in 2011 as I started looking for natural options to use in my home! My son had been experiencing health problems which led me to start cleaning up our diet and our home. I wanted to only use things on his sensitive body that I knew would be safe and have no side effects!
What motivated you to start building a business with doTERRA? When did you decide you would commit to it for the long term?
I wanted to build a business almost immediately because of how quickly and effectively the essential oils worked in our home! It took me quite a while to commit. It wasn’t until the Fall of 2015 that I finally was ready to dive in, commit myself, and work without giving up or quitting!
How has your life changed since using and sharing these oils?
I have felt so much joy as I have helped other women, especially mamas, be empowered in their health care. It is so nice to have something to reach for in the middle of the night when kiddos are struggling. It is even more amazing to hear other moms having the same experiences! I also love seeing the confidence and purpose developing in the women who are building a business alongside me.
What has been an obstacle or limiting belief in your business that you have since learned to overcome, and how?
That everyone already knows about and uses oils. That’s totally not true! Very few people actually use oils and incorporate them into their lifestyle.
What is a piece of advice you give a new builder starting their business journey?
Set a timeline for yourself and commit! Give yourself 1 year or 2 years before you re-evaluate whether or not your business is growing…I think you’ll be really surprised! And the best advice is – don’t quit on a bad day!
What has surprised you most about building a doTERRA business?
The friendships!! And the connection with other women around the globe. I have found some of my best friends within doTERRA and I would not trade that for anything!

This most precious oil is a must have for every home! Frankincense, sometimes referred to as olibanum, is a common type of essential oil used that can offer a variety of health benefits, reducing anxious feelings and self-doubt, reducing inflammation and boosting immunity!Screen Shot 2017-04-03 at 4.31.25 PM

1- Anti Aging // Mix Frankincense with Fractionated Coconut Oil and use as an anti aging serum. Apply generously to face every day and watch fine lines and wrinkles start to decrease as well as sun spots fade!

2- Head Tension // Place a drop of Frankincense on your thumb and press to the roof of the mouth. The inflammatory properties of the Frankincense mixed with the pressure on those nerve endings can be very supportive to head tension!

3- Immunity // Place Frankincense on the bottoms of the feet daily for added immune support to your body. You can also mix it in a roller ball with Melaleuca and On Guard for additional support!

4- Owies // We love to have this in a spray bottle mixed with Lavender, Melaleuca and Fractionated Coconut Oil to help support healing on scrapes, scratches and cuts.

5- Relief Inflammation and sore muscles // Apply generously to tight and sore joints and muscles!

You can get Frankincense in most of our starter kits here!

 mom
 
Gift Guide for Mom, who gives the best advice, rubs our back when we’re sick, facetimes us every other day, and always sends cookies in the mail.  How could we do life without her?
  • Peace basket oil & ornament.  The gift of a beautiful, handmade basket that was crafted by a young woman in Rwanda that she can happily display on her Christmas tree and think of you.  Plus, the Peace Blend that she can diffuse, and apply as perfume to get her through the stresses of the holiday season.
  • Verage Skin Collection:  Your mother’s beautiful skin deserves to be treated with respect, just the way she taught you.  This collection features powerful plant based products, and it scores a 2 on the EWG for safety! (One of the best ratings out there!)
  • And let’s throw in a Tightening Serum for her too.  You know those worry lines on her forehead are from the stunts you pulled in high school.
  • Wool Dryer Ball set w/ Lavender Oil:  Let’s face it, you still bring laundry home to your mom, and she still gets in neatly folded and in your bag before you go.  Give her some tools to reduce toxins and chemicals, and to reduce costs as these last forever!
best friend
Gift Guide for your best friend, who always answers the phone (even at 2a.m.), who laughs and cries with you, who supports your hippie oil loving tendencies (and even loves them herself!), and who knows and keeps all of your best secrets.
  • Feet pampering set: cozy socks, sugar scrub, body butter. Isn’t that the most amazing trio that you’ve ever heard of?
  • Melissa Oil:  This powerhouse oil is so precious and rare, in fact it’s just been restocked after years of being out of circulation.  This oil is an incredible immune stimulator, and it works wonders creating emotional stability and balance.  It’s pricey, but a best friend is worth every drop.
  • The Travel Set: Four 5mL bottles of oil that will keep her humming along whether she throws them in her purse or in her luggage: Lavender, Aromatouch, Wild Orange, Peppermint.
husbandGift Guide for your husband, because you’ve been through thick and thin, and you still like each other.  And sometimes, he’ll even let you rub those essential oils on him because they really do make you feel better (even if he won’t tell his friends that he’s into them).
  • Deep Blue Rub: He’s seen it all and been through it all with you.  Now give him a lovely back rub for all his efforts.
  • DIY Beard Oil: Because he’s finally on the hipster beard train and so you at least want to keep it from looking too scraggly. Mix 10 drops each of cedarwood, myrrh, and sandalwood in a small glass container and top off with fractionated coconut oil or jojoba oil.
  • Bath Bar travel set: A neutral woodsy & citrus scented bar in a beautiful bamboo travel container makes a perfect gift for whenever he’s on the road.
Grandma
Gift Guide for Grandma, the woman who taught you right from wrong, who snuck you candy in church, has the softest hands to hold onto, and who writes you beautiful letters so your mailbox is filled with something other than bills.
  • The Aromatouch Kit: Only $100 and full of oils to support immune health, emotional balance, and aching muscles.  Plus fractionated coconut oil to protect and nourish her precious, sensitive skin. The perfect combination.

 kids
Gift Guide for your kids, because even though they drive you crazy all year, their magical faces on Christmas morning makes it all worth it.  Let’s give them a few practical gifts that we love for them to have, even if they wished it were a hatchimal.
  • Kids A to Z vitamins:  They taste like strawberries, have a little smiley face on them, and my kids beg me for theirs everyday.  Plus, as a mom, I love the fact that they are packed with bio-available vitamins and minerals, since we all know toddlers only like eating mac and cheese.
  • Wild Orange & Lime shampoo:  Your little babes deserve only the best on their skin, which absorbs so much during bath time.  Plus, add a cap-full to the tubby for a delicious smelling bubble bath!
  • PB Assist Jr.: These packets taste like a pixie stick, but are actually chock full of double encapsulated probiotics to keep their digestive tracts running smoothly.  With natural watermelon and strawberry flavors,it’s a “treat” mom can get behind too.
Gift Guide for your child’s teacher who has cheerfully taught your children, tied shoes, wiped runny noses, and stuck to the curriculum no matter what is flying around the room.  They deserve a holiday break more than anyone!
  • Citrus Bliss Hand Lotion: all that hand washing leads to dry, cracked skin, so they will love keeping this lotion in their desk to soothe their skin & brighten their mood.
  • OnGuard Cleaner Concentrate: Whether for school or home, this cleaner will help keep germs at bay, while also boosting their own immunity; who can argue with that?
  • Petal Diffuser: Endless options in the classroom, or at their home for passive benefits both emotionally and physically from using their oils aromatically.
  • Introductory Kit: the three cornerstone oils: (lemon, lavender, & peppermint) to get her oil journey going and to support her health naturally.

  • Spa Kit: purchase the kit of 4 (Balance, Serenity, Citrus Bliss, & Deep Blue) and break it up, so you have a mini oil for 4 different stockings! (Or check out the oils in the travel kit for the same set-up)
  • Lip Balms: 3 new flavors, and full of gorgeous hydrating emollients and oils to keep your kisser in great shape for the holiday mistletoe.
