Blue Tansy is one of the latest and greatest oils to be released and comes from a bright yellow-flowered Mediterranean herb. Most of you have actually probably already experienced the benefits of Blue Tansy as it is a key ingredient in the Deep Blue collection. It has naturally powerful soothing properties that help provide relief after a hard workout. On its own, this oil is perfect for reducing blemishes, is a great help when your mood needs a little extra oomph, and can provide a more concentrated soothing sensation when applied topically with Fractionated Coconut Oil.

“Have you tried dōTERRA Cedarwood oil yet? Often referred to as Cedar oil, this essential oil is both unique and useful. With a warm, woody aroma, Cedarwood oil possesses cleansing and soothing properties that make it useful for promoting healthy-looking skin, soothing the mind and body, cleaning around the house, or promoting a calm environment in any room. Cedarwood is also extremely useful for repelling insects both inside and outside.

I love incorporating Cedarwood into my diffuser blends because of oils warm, inviting scent. I often mix Cedarwood oil with other warm oils like Cinnamon and Sandalwood. It also blends well with floral oils like Patchouli and Jasmine, or citrus oils like Bergamot and Lime. Here are two of my favorite Cedarwood essential oil diffuser blends:

Awakening diffuser blend
2 drops Bergamot oil
1 drop Cedarwood oil
2 drops Wintergreen oil
2 drops Wild Orange oil

California Coast diffuser blend
2 drops Frankincense oil

One of my favorite doTERRA essential oils is Frankincense, because it has such a unique aroma and so many practical uses.

Known as one of the best essential oils for skin, Helichrysum oil holds rejuvenating benefits that can help to promote a healthy-looking complexion. With chemical components that can help improve the appearance of skin, Helichrysum oil is a smart addition to any skin care regimen. One of the greatest benefits of Helichrysum oil is that it provides a safe, natural way to improve your skin. So many commercial cleansers and moisturizers on the market contain harmful toxins, but using a pure essential oil like Helichrysum to improve the skin allows you to keep your skin clean and protected.

Lavender oil is one of the most popular doTERRA essential oils because of its light, powdery aroma, and its myriad of uses for everyday life.

Melaleuca, also known as Tea Tree oil, is one of my favorite doTERRA essential oils because it is versatile and has range of applications. What I love most about Melaleuca is its benefits for the skin and hair. I often put a drop or two of Melaleuca into my moisturizer, or even directly on my face after washing to reap the benefits of this purifying, toning essential oil. I also like to place a few drops of Melaleuca in my shampoo, or give myself a scalp massage with Melaleuca and Fractionated Coconut Oil.

dōTERRA’s new Neroli Touch essential oil, also known as Citrus x aurantium, is a cousin to Orange and Petitgrain as they all are harvested from the same bitter orange tree. Neroli comes from the flowers of the tree which are delicate but provide us with a powerful tool for our homes. According to research, Neroli instills relaxation, uplifts mood, reduces feelings of anxiousness, and promotes overall well-being. Applied topically, Neroli can be used to soothe skin and reduce the appearance of blemishes. Want to know more about this amazing essential oil?

Diffusing On Guard along with Wild Orange and Lemon creates a lovely scent that uplifts my family and boosts their immune system at the same time. Another of my favorite ways to use this oil is the On Guard Beadlets. They are 1/4th of a drop of oil from the bottle which is the perfect amount if you need a quick pick me up.

Some of the key ingredients in these throat drops are Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, and Myrrh all of which will help you and your students stay awake and their immune systems boosted during studying hours.

Have you added Patchouli oil to your essential oil collection yet? If you haven’t tried Patchouli oil yet, you are in for a pleasant surprise. There are several reasons to use Patchouli oil, but here are the top three benefits:

  1. Patchouli oil can benefit the skin. Use Patchouli oil to help get rid of the occasional skin imperfection or blemish, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, or just to improve the overall look of your complexion.
  2. Patchouli oil can help to balance the emotions. When used topically or aromatically, Patchouli oil can help to balance your emotions when you are feeling frazzled or overwhelmed.
  3. Patchouli oil has many useful beautifying properties. In addition to using Patchouli oil for skin, you can also use it in your personal hygiene routine as a perfume, or to beautify the hair.

I don’t know about you but I like some peace in my life, especially when it comes to road trips.

Wild Orange oil is one of dōTERRA’s most popular oils—and with good reason! Not only does Wild Orange oil have a variety of uses, but its invigorating, energizing aroma is hard to resist. One of my favorite ways to use Wild Orange is to add a few drops to my drinking water for a flavorful beverage. I also love to combine a few drops of Wild Orange oil with water in a spray bottle and use the mixture as an all-purpose spray for cleaning the surfaces around my home. As a citrus oil, Wild Orange has cleansing properties that make it useful for purifying surfaces like countertops and tables throughout the home. Not only do I love having clean surfaces, but the all-purpose spray leaves behind a lovely citrus aroma!

Caring Spotlights


ALZHEIMER'S

Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s is a fairly common disease in the United States affecting approximately 5.1 million Americans. There are many ways to help fight this disease including donating to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America. Another way to help is to volunteer with a chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association as Wellness Advocate, Mary Gauldin, has done. She started volunteering when her grandfather was diagnosed with the disease and has worked to “provide a better quality of life for those living with this devastating disease.” What a wonderful cause to be a part of! What sort of ways have you found to volunteer in your own community?  Visit https://doterra.com/US/en/about/caring-volunteer-alzheimers-association for more information.

PITT HOPKINS SYNDROME

Pitt Hopkins Syndrome

I love hearing stories about other helping those who cannot help themselves! This one is such a touching story as it is about a mother, Maia Ginnelly, volunteering for a foundation that works to find new treatments, medicines, and eventually a cure for Pitt Hopkins syndrome, a genetic disorder her son was diagnosed with. Maia gives her time, energy, and talents to help raise money and awareness for this foundation in hopes of helping her son live a more comfortable life and helping future generations have healthier, higher functioning lives.

TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY

dōTERRA Wellness Advocate Starts a Healing Center after Suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury

With this motivation, Deborah started the Awakenings Center for Inner Healing & Empowerment in North Carolina, a nonprofit charity that serves as a healing center and spiritual retreat for those healing from a brain injury. The center strives to provide visitors with the tools and knowledge that will help them on their journey to recovery.  Learn More…

CANCER PATIENT SUPPORT

dōTERRA Wellness Advocate Volunteers to Provide Support to Cancer Patients

Wellness Advocate Leigh Cavender knows first-hand how scary it is to be diagnosed with a spinal cord tumor. Despite the frightening nature of this rare cancer diagnosis, Leigh underwent the necessary treatments and is now a survivor.

Currently, she volunteers with the High Desert Hospice Agency in Victorville, California.

CHRONIC PAIN SUPPORT

Illnesses are never fun to go through, especially alone. Invisible illnesses are even harder to work through without support from friends, family, or community members. That is why Tracy Strand, a dōTERRA Wellness Advocate, created a support group in her home town to help those struggling with illnesses of depression and chronic pain like she was. She worked with her church to create a safe space for these women in her community to cultivate faith and hope for these women living with their invisible illnesses. If you know someone struggling with these kinds of illnesses, reach out to them. Tell them you love them, offer to listen or to just be with them. Even the smallest acts of kindness could make a difference. You can read Tracy’s inspiring story here: https://doterra.com/US/en/about/caring-chronic-pain-support-group

WELLNESS ADVOCATE OUTREACH

I love hearing stories of the outreach of Wellness Advocates in communities across the country! dōTERRA provided this amazing story about Jennifer Thomas who volunteers her time at a local hospital and hospice center in order to bring comfort and care to the patients in a way that the doctors and nurses don’t always have time to give. I had the chance a couple of years ago to volunteer in a similar way at the hospital in my own town. It was such a wonderful experience to help the hospital in my small way by ensuring the linens were stocked and help in the turnover of a room to make sure the next patient was as comfortable as possible in a potentially scary situation. Since that time, I haven’t been able to volunteer in that way but this story is making me feel inspired to reach out and help my community in some way. What are some ways you have found you can contribute to your community? Leave a comment down below and enjoy the story! Hopefully, you feel as inspired by it as I do! https://doterra.com/US/en/about/caring-jennifer-thomas

ADDICTION RECOVERY

Serving is one of my favorite ways to get out of the house, which is why I love hearing stories about how other people find ways to serve their communities. Patti Stevens is a great example of using her knowledge of health and wellness to positively benefit the emotional wellbeing of women who have struggled with addictions or abuse. The WestCare Foundation Facility in Las Vegas allows Patti to teach classes that “help women improve their health, find focus, and re-center their lives.” How have you found a good way to use your knowledge of wellness to help those in your community? https://doterra.com/US/en/about/caring-addiction-recovery

Essential Oil Education Basics


WHAT IS AN ESSENTIAL OIL?

What is an Essential Oil?

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, essential oils protect plants and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices. Learn More…

WHAT IS CTPG?

CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® Quality Testing

The purity of an essential oil is its most important characteristic. An essential oil that isn’t pure means you run the risk of putting germs, heavy metals, or adulterants onto or into your body, which can provoke irritation, adverse effects, or even sickness. Without an accepted standard for essential oil quality, doTERRA created its own testing process, calling it CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®. The CPTG process certifies that there are no added fillers, synthetic ingredients, or harmful contaminants in their essential oils that would reduce their efficacy. doTERRA even goes a step further, putting all their products and the packaging through a battery of tests to ensure a long and effective shelf-life. This protocol ensures potency, purity, and consistency batch to batch.  Learn More…

ASK DR. HILL

We are so lucky to have Dr. Hill as one of our executives! Essential oils became much less confusing and more useable as soon as I learned more about their chemistry. I really enjoyed reading this article because, in my own experience, I knew the essential oils were working for me, but I wasn’t sure why or how. I am the sort of person that needs to know the ‘why’. Learning more about the chemistry can seem daunting which is why I love how Dr. Hill breaks it down for us. He gives an easy to understand explanation of the science behind how and why these drops can do so much for our wellness.  What other resources have you found that help you understand the ‘why’ behind your favorite oils? https://doterra.com/US/en/brochures-magazines-doterra-living-fall-2015-ask-dr-hill

SPRING & SUMMER STRUGGLES

My whole life I have had a struggle in the spring and summer months and I know I am not the only one that experiences these issues. When I was a kid, I had to get help to manage the symptoms that would make me so miserable while trees were blooming and especially when I was around freshly cut grass. Five years ago, my wife and I were invited to attend a dōTERRA essential oils class taught by my sister-in-law. I agreed to go, but was quite skeptical and did not think the oils would help me at all. During the class, my sister-in-law asked if anyone was struggling with the changing of the seasons. Since that was something I had trouble with, I raised my hand and she asked me to try the oils. Still skeptical, I held out my hand as she dropped lavender, lemon, and peppermint onto it. I rubbed my hands together, cupped them over my face, and breathed in. While I was not instantly convinced, I could feel a difference. Something was happening with my eyes and my nose and I felt great.

Ever since that day, I have kept sample vials of those three oils with me at all times. There are still weeks in the summertime that I need extra support. One of my favorite times to use this combination aromatically is right before I mow the lawn to keep me protected against the effects grass can have on my immune system. I also enjoy using these oils for their additional benefits: lavender makes me happy, peppermint helps me feel energized, and lemon keeps me clear and aware.

Our next story is an entertaining one:

I was working outside one day and I noticed that the cracks in my driveway had been overtaken by ants. There were thousands of them! In my rush to resolve this problem in the quickest possible manner, I decided fire was my best option.  A few hours later I returned to inspect the ant colony only to find they were still there. Honestly, I was frustrated but also impressed.  Maybe we could learn to co-exist.  I would control the boundaries from the basketball hoop to the eastern gate, and the ants would control the western boundaries ending at the sidewalk.  As I searched for paper and pen to draft new property boundaries I stumbled across a bottle of Peppermint. I recalled my essential oil training and how Peppermint can be used as a safe and effective bug repellent.  I liberally dropped the oil in the cracks and all around where the ants were to see if that would do anything.  When I came back to it later, the ants were gone.

dōTERRA’s Healing Hands Foundation


O.U.R RESCUE

dōTERRA’s Healing Hands Foundation has already made such a huge impact in so many lives around the world.

The most recent partnership of the Foundation is an organization that was founded to rescue children from

slavery and from sex trafficking. The founder of O.U.R rescue, Tim Ballard, had a touching experience while on a rescue mission in Haiti. You can read his storyhere. 

I would also highly recommend you watch this video about how your donations to the Healing Hands Foundation has impacted this amazing cause. I hope you enjoy!

DAYS FOR GIRLS

Q: What impact is Days for Girls having worldwide and, specifically, in Guatemala?

A: The Days for Girls mission is “Every Girl. Everywhere. Period.” That goal is truly having a global impact. We get to see videos from some of the girls who have received our kits. Their stories about how they are able to stay in school and that they are no longer embarrassed are amazing to hear.

Q: What are you currently working on in the Days for Girls Guatemala chapter?

A: We now have Managers, directors, and 10 seamstresses working in our Guatemala facility creating the kits! We have been able to teach local women how to make the kits, which opens employment opportunities. This is a big deal because most of these women working for us never went to school and are illiterate, but can still have a job and get paid. We are always looking for ways to have a bigger reach in the Guatemalan communities and ways to make producing the kits cheaper. We have plans to purchase two machines that will be able to make the underwear we include in the kits. Being able to make them ourselves will be decrease the cost by two or three times and eliminate the need to purchase from a third party.

Q: Do you have any personal stories about dropping off the kits?

A: During my trip we handed out close to 500 kits to schools. At one of the schools, we asked the teacher what the girls normally do during their periods and the response was that most of them don’t even have underwear to help them. Most of them wear long dark skirts if they even come to school so that if they leak on the chairs, they can discreetly wipe it up without anyone noticing. This was so eye opening for me and made me so grateful that this organization was making such a difference in the world.

Cō-IMPACT SOURCING®
