Oh the weather outside is frightful … but the oils are so delightful …
Go outside to play in the snow, then come inside and enjoy a cup of hot cocoa – and add a drop of cinnamon or cassia to it!
You can use a cocoa mix (I’m very partial to the 365 Organic mix from Whole Foods) or you can mix 1/4 unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/2 cup sugar, a dash of salt and 1/3 cup hot water and cook on the stove until hot, then add 4 cups of milk. Stir in vanilla if desired, and a drop of cinnamon or cassia (you could also use peppermint and experiment with wild orange!)
You can also add a single drop of cinnamon or cassia to homemade whipped cream (throw half a cup or so of whipping cream, a spoonful or two of sugar, and a drop of EO into the kitchenaid and let it whip!).
You’ll love the flavor AND you’ll love that it helps to keep your blood sugar stable, keeps germs at bay, soothes your tummy, and naturally stimulates you and perks you up!
Here’s a great talk by Dr. Hill about cleansing and detoxification: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdLfI9FFdyg It’s simple – anyone can do it! Contact me if you’d like to get more info or order any of the products he mentions. I use them myself and love them!

We’ve been making flu bombs for everyone we know this winter … all it is, really, is a few drops of essential oil in a capsule. Take it every couple of hours. Just for a day or two. Use another oil to help with congestion or cough. Simple.
I’ve had people come RUNNING up to me, hugging, dancing around, hollering “WHAT’S IN THIS STUFF AND HOW DO I GET SOME?”
Frankincense, Oregano, On Guard, Melaleuca, Lemon & Peppermint. That’s all.
We tell people to try it once if they’ve been exposed, or if they come down with symptoms, to just do it for a day. We offer no guarantees (the FDA prohibits us from doing that) but we can say that nobody who’s tried it has complained, while everyone we know who’s sticking with the FDA-approved over the counter and prescription drugs is saying that they’re not working.
So we can’t say anything but … well, just saying.
Want some? Give us a call at 336.653.1203. We do classes all the time (three scheduled this week) on using essential oils for health and wellness. We’d love for you to come, or we can meet/skype/talk on the phone, too.
Here’s a quick “essential oils 101″ class that I recorded this morning. It’s easy to get started with oils! Give me a call at 336-653-1203.

Well, Ken and I decided we’d take the dogs for a little walk on New Year’s Day. Just a short little jaunt through the graveyard next door (not nearly as creepy as it sounds). We walk here pretty often. The dogs were in high gear, they hadn’t been for a walk in a while.
About 20 feet in, somehow, my feet got all discombobulated and I fell. I tripped over or somehow got hung up on a rough piece of pavement. When I fell, I fell HARD – I remember just how fast that pavement came up to meet me. I thought at first I’d broken my wrist, because that took the brunt of the fall, but that quickly became the least of my concerns – I wrenched my back so badly that I had a big part of my lower back go completely numb. Then the pain set in. I was hurting in odd spots (like my stomach) and was actually screaming so loudly (and Ken was evidently running toward me so fast) that a car stopped and offered to call 911. I refused.
Ken got us all home (fortunately it wasn’t all that far) and I said, “Get me the oils!”
With some tactical advice from other doTERRA users, I had Ken immediately put Deep Blue on my back, followed a little later by Lavender, Frankincense, and Peppermint on my back. We dressed my scrapes with Lavender and Frankincense (I would have used Melaleuca but I couldn’t find the bottle – must have set it down somewhere!). Then I put even more Frankincense, Lavender, and Oregano in a capsule and took one about every 2-3 hours until bedtime. All I can say is “Thank God for free Frankincense!” I also doubled up on my LLV vitamins. And of course he laid hands on me and prayed and declared my healing.
I was in a LOT of pain through the evening… shooting pain in my back, pain in the breastbone, numbness in my lower back, barely able to move. I was expecting to be in far worse shape this morning.
I woke up at 6:30 and waited on the pain. It didn’t come until I went to get up, and with it came a lot of dizziness. But the pain isn’t nearly as bad as I’d have expected. Usually the next day you’re worse, not better. I expected to feel like I’d been hit by a truck, but this is more like an annoyance than a major incident. I’m able to get up and walk around without crying, and I’m able to sit here at the computer and work without hurting. So I’m going to take a warm shower and continue with the protocol of Frankincense, Lavender and Peppermint on me and in me throughout the day.
I seriously should not feel this good… but God and doTERRA essential oils helped put Humpty Dumpty back together again.
I’ll keep posting updates as I heal.

Are you joining us? Let’s get fit & healthy in the New Year!
I recently discovered that DigestZen is not just for tummy troubles (nausea, heartburn, reflux, aches, diarrhea, constipation). It’s also great if you’ve got one of those hacking coughs from a tickle in your throat that just won’t go away.
If you live in North Carolina, you know that the crud is going around right now. Seems like everyone’s got it! The flu bomb can help immensely, and if you need one, you should see my friend and team member Carol Uselman to get some. She’ll be doing the supplying of those for our team from now on.
But the Flu Bomb doesn’t seem to work on the cough. I asked around and someone said to put a single drop of DigestZen on the belly button.
Yes – DigestZen on the belly button … and within 2 minutes, the cough was completely gone for about 4 hours. A second dose and it stayed away all night. Ummmm …. put WHAT, WHERE?
I do realize that sounds crazy to our “I should take cough syrup” minds, but Robitussin never gave me results like that. And this is all natural with no side effects (other than a belly button that smells kind of like fennel and peppermint).
Need some DigestZen, or want to learn more about oils? Call me at 336-653-1203!
