Marching Into Spring

Ice storms, snow, freezing temps, oh my! We've had quite the winter and we're less than a month away from Spring. For those enduring the cold temps are all shouting "Hallelujah!" For those in warmer areas, we are jealous, oh so jealous right now. My household has had quite a busy February and we're looking forward to a much calmer March.
In the past couple weeks my mom had some medical issues and was even hospitalized. As I sat in the Emergency Room waiting to go back to see her I leaned over to my dad and said..."I'm kinda grossed out right now. This waiting room is filled with germs and yuckiness. Use some of this On Guard Hand Sanitizer every 10 mins." Ha! Seems a bit excessive, I know, but there is nothing clean about a waiting room in any building especially a hospital. And as soon as my mom was admitted and I was able to get home and back I had a diffuser in her room. We had a couple staff comment on how great it smelled. I had a nurse say it smelled like a spa. Any time you can make a hospital room a little more like a spa is a win in my book! Yesterday when I took my mom to her doctor's appointment, her Doctor had a diffuser going in the waiting room. I love seeing the health care profession getting behind using natural options as well! I know that Vanderbilt University Emergency Room set the tone when they started using doTERRA in their waiting room, staff and now with patients. You can read about it here and here.

Speaking of health care professions recommending essential oils as an added benefit to overall care look at the Tweet I saw today from Dr. Josh Axe. If you've not heard of Dr. Axe read all about his credentials here.

You can read the whole article here. The article talks about what Frankincense essential oil is, some reasons of what it is used for, it's benefits, and several DIY recipes. You can read more about what some call Liquid Gold (nope, it's not Velveeta) at It also has a great video webinar by Dr. David Hill about Frankincense essential oil and it's benefits. My favorite use for this oil currently is in my facial moisturizer.
I will be placing an order next Friday, March 6th. If you would like to be part of this order, please let me know by NOON on Friday, March 6th.

And as always, if you have any questions or need information please let me know. I would love to help you in any way possible.

Stay warm!

PS - Last month I gave a free Citrus Bliss Hand Lotion to one lucky person who placed an order with me. This month I'm going to have a drawing for a free doTERRA Lip Balm with Peppermint and Wild Orange Essential Oils. All you have to do is place an order with me (on my website or through me) by March 15th to be entered in to the drawing! Good luck!
