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!

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!

Top 5 uses of Frankincense

April 3, 2017

We are here to talk to you about our best friend FRANK! 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 wounds.

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!

  • 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.

October 15th

October 15, 2016

By Julie Barron:

October 15th is Infant Loss Awareness Day.  This is a day that’s important to 1 in 4 women, but a topic that often flies too far under the radar.  Women’s health is one that sadly is still being fought for in our culture, right alongside emotional health.  So you can imagine that this topic is an intersection of both, it is one that often brings up feelings of fear, sadness, isolation, and shame, instead of one that focuses on hope, love, community, healing, and building relationships.

Having the chance to express our emotions is a capacity we are innately given to help us process and understand biological changes happening within our bodies.  They are cues to help us decode our bodies deep functioning.  They help us manage our outside world: stress, fear, joy, longing, forgiveness, hope.  When we recognize, and allow ourselves to experience and express these emotions we are able to physically and emotionally begin to understand, accept, heal, and move forward, particularly when the emotions are leading us through a difficult transition in our lives.

In my own personal experience, having the ability to have a “safe space” to work through my feelings has been the key to piecing together the best way forward to me.  Having someone to talk to and to help me process my emotions, or even to just say “me too!” and “I’m so sorry this happened to you.”  Sometimes all you need is to feel heard and acknowledged.

Another thing that has helped me feeling lifted up and supported on my journey has been using essential oils to support my body, and soothe those raw emotions.  Essential oils work with our bodies and brains seamlessly.  When we breathe in these oils the olfactory bulb in our brain lights up and activates our limbic system, which is directly connected to our memories.  That’s why our sense of smell is our most powerful sense; it’s the only one with a direct pathway to our brain.  And that’s why you can smell something and it can totally transport you back to a particular time and place.  Essential oils harness that ability to direct our thoughts and feelings.  Here are a few of the oils that I often turn to when I’m trying to process complex emotions:

Untitled design-2

Cypress: This oil is particularly supportive to the female reproductive system as well as our nervous system (emotions), so it’s a great oil to turn to.  This oil often helps us to address our feelings, and I find that when I really need to process something I turn to it.  I apply it to my pulse points and heart center. This oils helps ease the pain of loss or separation.
Clary Sage: This is another oil very connected to our feminine side.  It can help encourage uterine contractions, which may be helpful if you are trying to help your body along naturally.  It also helps with feelings of anxiousness or depression.  It helps us to regulate our hormones, allowing us to better manage our stressors.
Bergamot: Citrus oils are very positive and uplifting, serving as a balm for our souls.  This citrus oil in particular is noted for its work in our body to allay stress and feelings of anxiety helping us to sleep more comfortably.  This oil can also help with cramping and abdominal discomfort.
Lavender: This oil is well known for it’s ability to help soothe and relax our bodies and minds.  I love placing a few drops in an epsom bath to help me relax and reconnect.  It helps to calm our minds, soothes inflammation and discomfort, and helps ease all of our body systems.
Peace Blend: This blend from doTERRA is formulated to help ease feelings of anxiousness, to calm and soothe our nervous system, and to help us feel relaxed and connected.
Console Blend: This beautiful blend of tree and floral oils helps jumpstart our journey of emotional healing; allowing us to feel more at peace and hopeful as we process and begin to move forward.
Forgive Blend: This blend of oils is targeted toward renewing and settling our emotions to help us move forward.These oils help promote feeling of contentment, relief and patience.
Here are a few resources for those of you coping with loss as well:
Miscarriage Support: Basic knowledge, information, and support.
Look for a local support group in your area.  Ask your doctor for resources.  Here is a group I belong to.  This group is local to me in Iowa, but anyone needing support is welcome to join our facebook community.
Bearing Hope: a wonderful, supportive book written by a woman walking these same roads.
Don’t Talk About the Baby: an upcoming documentary telling our stories and supporting women

MAMA – SELF LOVE

October 10, 2016

IMG_6315

Motherhood is a beautiful thing. It’s the hardest and most rewarding job on the planet. I love the way Brené Brown put it when she said,

“The real questions for parents should be: “Are you engaged? Are you paying attention?” If so, plan to make lots of mistakes and bad decisions. Imperfect parenting moments turn into gifts as our children watch us try to figure out what went wrong and how we can do better next time. The mandate is not to be perfect and raise happy children. Perfection doesn’t exist, and I’ve found what makes children happy doesn’t always prepare them to be courageous, engaged adults.” // Brené BrownDaring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

My twin boys were born 12 weeks premature. At 28 weeks gestation, we really didn’t know whether or not we’d ever bring them home. Their time in the hospital was rough and their recovery was long. On the outside, they look the same as every other four year old out there, but on the inside, developmentally, they are less than half their actual age. This confuses a lot of new people in our lives and can often, at first, be the elephant in the room. In the early stages of recovery, we knew there was something different about our boys, but we weren’t sure what to call it. We were told their symptoms would go away and that they’d be “normal” by the age of two. I believed everything the therapists and doctors told us back then. Silly me. No one knows their child better than their mother. Am I right? I feel like now that we are settled deep into their Sensory Processing Disorder diagnoses, we’ve been able to adjust to what our life looks like and the things we can and cannot do. I have immersed myself in the vernacular of SPD, therapies, diet restrictions, and IEP’s. I do still have days where I get frustrated and wish things were different. I’d love to be able to take all of my boys, by myself, to the park or even on a walk down the path near my home. That’s not our reality. However, I would never exchange what we don’t have for what we do. They are perfect, crazy, little men that I insanely adore and love with all of my heart.

IMG_6121

I struggle daily to find time and energy to invest in myself. It is equally as important to care for me as it is to care for my four sons. Sometimes by the end of the day, my feet and ankles are so sore and swollen that I am now the elephant in the room. This is when I sneak into the bathroom and soak my achy feet in the tub. I pour 1/4 cup epsom salt, and three drops each of Cinnamon Bark, Rosemary, and Wild Orange. These three oils, coupled with the magnesium and sulfate, decrease puffiness and increase circulation. Oh, and the aroma is heavenly! This little act of self love is just what I need to get up and do it all over again the next day.

xo,
Lena

EO Candles, DIY!

August 29, 2016

I used to be a candle addict. I literally had two full cabinets, stacked top to bottom with candles and yet I’d still buy more every new season. It wasn’t long after I started cleaning my house up of chemicals when I learned how many come from burning candles. I was surprised to find that most waxes and scents have chemicals such as, alkans, alkenes, and toluene. When burned, these chemicals cause air pollution in your home, lung damage, asthma, and in some extreme cases- cancer. I was completely heartbroken to find this out. I was ALL IN with going clean with my beauty and household products…but candles!? How would my soul ever TRULY enjoy Fall again!? Even so, I gave them up. It was a rough break but when you burn them as much as I did and you’re being starred in the face with cancer by a loved one, there’s just no playing around.

I’ve come to love my diffuser with all that’s in me but with Fall lurking around the corner, I just needed my candles. Today I tried my hand at making my own and was totally surprised at how easy it was! Here’s a short step-by-step, along with a few of my favorite combos I used; most combos can be used in a diffuser as well…

What you’ll need:

  • 100% natural soy wax
  • Measuring cup
  • Candle wick
  • Straw or wooden stick
  • Jar
  • Scissors or nail clippers
  • A pot
  • Glass bowl or jar
  • Essential oils

Step 1– Boil water in a small pot. When water is hot enough, Scoop 1 cup of the soy wax into glass bowl and set in boiling water.

Step 2– While wax is melting, take wick and measure length of jar; trim about 1-2 inches above jar. Making sure the wick is touching the center bottom of the mason jar, set the straw or wooden stick in center and wrap remaining wick around straw.

Step 3– When wax is completely melted, take off burner and let it sit for 1-2 minutes to cool. When finished cooling, add your choice of essential oils and stir.

Step 4– Pour wax mixture into jar and let it sit.

Step 5- Once the wax has hardened, cut the wick, light, and enjoy!

 

A few of my favorite EO and spice combos I used:

  • Fall Breeze- 5 drops Tangerine, 3 drops Cinnamon Bark, and 1 drop Clove
  • Walk In the Woods- 4 drops Cypress, 2 drops White Fir, and 2 drops sandalwood
  • 10 drops wild orange and 2 bay leaf
  • Herb garden- 2 drops Rosemary, 2 drops Thyme, 2 drops Oregano, and 2 drops Spearmint
  • Pumpkin Pie- 4 drops Cardamom, 2 drops Cinnamon, 1 drop Wild Orange, and 1 drop Clove.

I’m so thankful for these safe alternatives so I can enjoy my cozy candles and favorite scents while knowing they’re helping my family breathe easy all at once!
