Ginger Essential Oil....

I think almost everyone knows that Ginger is great for settling a tummy down, but did you know that the oil can also help for temporary  pain relief. It is a spicy oil so be careful with it. It is warming. Did you know that if you put a drop on your wrist it can even assist with motion sickness.


It is the oil of empowerment. It has a purpose and it will fulfill it. It will help you be fully present in your life. There is a lot more info in this wonderful book. Check it out.

One of the things I love about dōTERRAs ginger is it smells like fresh grated ginger.....yummy

Body System: Ginger is helpful for the digestive and nervous system.  
Aromatic influence may help physical energy, love, money and courage.

Odor: It is a middle note with a scent that is sweet, spicy-woody, warm tenacious fresh and sharp. 

Please reach out to me for more info. I would love to help you learn more about essential oils.
Hope you have a blessed day.

Some of my Favorite Ways to Use Essential Oils..

Do you know about essential Oils?
Love how the oils can support my lifestyle, from calming to energizing.
I use doTERRA’s oil because my family deserves to have the safest oils. I have used essentials oils since I was a little girl. I used them around my kids. Never on them or internally, that was a huge NO-NO.

So how do I use them?
I love to rub them on my feet in a lotion so they absorb and sooth my aching feet. They moisturize them as well. Did you know Wild Orange can help sooth and restore dry cracked feet. I love to use doTERRA’s unscented lotion for that. You squeeze a little into your hand and add a couple of drops of Wild Orange and peppermint rub together to mix and then lovingly pamper your feet with a massage. Doesn’t that feel better?
I also wear oils as my perfume. No toxic perfumes for me and I get a lot of compliments about how wonderful I smell. I will wear a blend of citrus in the morning to help me start my day. I will use a little Whisper or passion as the evening rolls around to help get in the mood.

I love to flavor my sparkling water with grapefruit Essential Oils. Please only use oils you trust and that have a supplement label on them. I use doTERRA daily. A little citrus in your water can support detoxing your body. I like to add a couple of drops to my water verses cutting a lemon and squeezing in 1/2. That is to sour for my taste. The drops don’t taste sour, nice. When I need to support my body with a little more oomph I will actually drink Frankincense, Cilantro and Spearmint. just 1-2 drops of each. It helps my body to move a little freer and to do a little metal detoxing.

My last way to use my oils is in a diffuser. Boy am I glad I have them. I have been running them at my networking group lately. They are doing some major remodeling where we meet and the chemical smell is so bad. My body is not happy.  Diffusing can lift a mood, clean the air in your space and even  help eliminate the stink.

Despite a Busy Schedule, Wellness Advocate Donates Time to Community”

We are all Busy but when we take time to care for others it makes our lives full, not just full of chaos.  Here is a great story of a wonderful woman who serves others even in her busy day. Caring for others is sharing the love.

That is why I picked this story

“This week I chose Monica Barajas as the Inspiring Wellness Advocate of the Week after reading about the wonderful service she has provided in her community. Like most of us, Monica juggles a busy schedule, family life, work, and more, but she doesn’t let these responsibilities keep her from taking time to give back within her community. Whether she is supporting a friend diagnosed with cancer, or visiting heart attack and stroke patients in the hospital, Monica always takes time out of her busy schedule to volunteer in her community. As a busy mother myself, I was extremely inspired by the work Monica has done—she doesn’t make excuses about her busy schedule, but simply puts others first and makes time for volunteer work. You can read Monica’s inspiring story on

Why is “CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® Quality Testing” Important?

Have you ever asked your self any of these questions?

  1. Why do we need to have our essential oils tested?
  2. Why do we need to have some kind of accountability in the essential oils world?
  3. Why does doTERRA test to the extent that they do? 

Well, I’m going to look at those questions today.
  1.  Why do we need to have our essential oils tested? 

We need to have them tested because there is no regulations at all over what they can put in a bottle and say it is pure. Did you know it is perfectly ok to claim that it is 100% pure on the bottle because they used a drop, Yes I said 1 drop in a bottle of who knows what. The rest of the bottle can be a chemical, a synthetic, etc. They do not have to tell us. I think this is sad. I grew up on those oils and my mother instilled to never ever put them on my skin. There is a reason they have that on the bottle. You can smell them if you want because the belief is that won’t hurt you....... REALLY? Did you know that smell is a huge factor in the amount of toxins you take in, in a day. Why do we need to inhale deeply and exhale just as deep? You can release up to 70% of your toxins through the lungs. 

 2. Why do we need to have some kind of accountability?
We need accountability because some companies don’t have the same integrity. There is companies that say they are selling you Mellissa but in truth it is lemongrass with just enough Mellissa so you can’t tell. The cost difference is huge here, Mellissa is over $100 for a 5ml bottle and Lemongrass is just over $10. There is some companies that say you’re getting pure Frankincense but test tell you there is more Cypress in that bottle then there is Frankincense. Cost of Frankincense is over $90 retail and Cypress runs around $20. Do you understand why testing to the highest level is so important. I will not name names so don’t even ask.

3. Why does doTERRA test to the extent that they do? The reason doTERRA does the testing that they do is because they have set a standard that they have to keep to. They do not and will not except anything below their standard. We know this because we have been with out Roman Chamomile and Melissa. They didn’t meet doTERRA’s requirements. They could have just said it close enough, they will never know, etc.. But they didn’t. Why is this important? well I know the bottle I have will work as well as the bottle I buy in 5 years.

Why else is this important that I know what I’m getting? We use these on the little ones in our life. Enzo, is such an oil loving kid that he has never had to use a chemical as we support the dis-comfort of is teeth breaking through the gums. When his little tummy isn’t happy we have the tools to calm it. He is such a healthy little man.
Go check out this page and Video on doTERRA’s testing. They also do 3rd party so they can’t have a say in the results.

I hope this helps you as you do your research on the oils you want to use. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.

Attitude of Gratitude

Why do you think it's important to have an attitude of gratitude?
Gratitude is a state of being thankful for what is in our lives instead of looking at what it could be like.

When we look and compare our lives to other, we aren't happy, satisfied. We need more because Betty has or Joe got.... Why can't I have a new car..... why is my life so hard......

When we are grateful for the car that is running. The job that is still there, for a husband/wife who loves us, we feel love, we feel joy. Which way do you want feel? I choose to be grateful and to be happy.

Did you know that doTERRA has a line of essential oils that can support your feelings. They are the emotional aromatherapy set. I enjoy this set to help me through the hard days and to motivate me through the days that can be a handful.

Afformations vs Affirmations.

Have you ever told yourself “I am” statements?

Did your brain believe you?
Or did it say “YEA RIGHT!”

I have done it so much that my mind is at the well if you say so stage but things still aren’t changing. So I have been reading/listening to a book by Noah St. John called “Afformations”

What is an Afformation? It is a question.
Our brains are made to solve the questions. Did you know that?

I have read the book “AFFORMATIONS” by Noah St John. It was a such an eye opener it was.   We have been asking questions to our brains for a long time. But they are the wrong questions. Why am I such an idiot? Why am I so broke? Why doesn’t anyone love me? etc.....

What do these do in your brain? They make them true. You wanted to know the answer to them.

So lets flip them... Why am I so smart? Why does money flow to me? Why am I so loved?

Doesn’t that feel better?  

I have been making these little Afformations on the text on photo app. It has been a great way to share them and I enjoy how pretty they are.

Write your own or you can get the book there is a bunch of them in the back of the book.

I hope you ask yourself into success. Its working for me.

May God bless you and keep you.
