ear infections

Ear infections are no fun thing.  Unfortunately it seems our kids get them often. They can be very painful and sometimes we have no clue that our kids even have one.

I had an awesome thing happen today.  I took my youngest daughter to her well-baby check up this morning at the doctors office.  He said everything was looking good, she was finally growing (she had acid-reflux really bad, which we fixed with DigestZen) the only thing was that her ears were really waxy.  Normally he would just leave them be, but he couldn't see past the wax.  So he was worried, that maybe her hearing my be affected by the blockage.  He decided to clean out the wax.  Super fun....let me tell ya :)  Holding your daughter down to have someone stick a long stick down your daughters ear, is not my type of fun!

Anyways, after that was all cleaned up he looked down her ears again and was SHOCKED at what he saw.  Her ear was bright red inside(ummm ya you just had a stick down it!) and it was pussy.  He asked if she had been running a fever or sick the past couple of days.  She hadn't been and he was really surprised.

He said we should probably treat her with some antibiotics to help clear it up.  I told him, I don't think we will need it.  I can cure ear infections with my essential oils at home.  He stopped for a minute and was like "OK" well I am going to call in the prescription, just in case..... ha, ha!!

It feels soo EMPOWERING to know that I can take care of my kids and not have to fill that prescription and shove that yucky stuff down my daughters throat!  So, right now she has a cotton ball with Basil, Frankincense and Lavender in her ear.  I seriously love doTERRA Essential Oils!

Life Long Vitality Vitamins......

I must say these are a MUST HAVE in our household! 

When I first found out that doTERRA had vitamins I was thinking great, I need a good vitamin.  At the time I was just taking my prenantals, cause I had just had a baby.   So, I thought I'll check them out and try them. 

 A vitamin is a vitamin right..............WRONG!!! 

Soo not true.  The LLV(lifelongvitality) vitamins are AMAZING. 

I got my first pack of vitamins and started taking them, by day 3-5, I was feeling a HUGE burst of energy that I didnt have before.  I had a babe so, I wasn't getting a whole lot of sleep and yet I wasn't dragging butt by noon, like I had been before.
 I thought I'm sure it will wear off eventually being the total skeptic that I am. It didn't wear off.  I just kept on trucking, feeling sooo much better then I had for a long time.  It was seriously crazy. 

I kept taking them for probably about 3 months straight and the next month on my order, I needed a couple of different things that cost a little more so to save money I took my vitamins off my order.  BAD IDEA!  The first couple of days without them were ok, then after that is was downhill from there.

About a week without them, my hubs asked me what was wrong with me? 
I was like WHAT (not in a very nice tone i'm sure)? 
He said you are off your vitamins aren't you? 
I said yes, I was... WHY?!?!
 He told me. I don't care how much they cost, you NEED them :)  You are soo much more calm, nicer, less emotional and few other things, I can't remember.  (He was trying to put it nicely, but basically saying I was a WITCH with a "B" without them!  ha,ha! )

So, if you are lacking energy, feel out of control, depressed or just plain and simple, want to feel better, then I highly suggest you try these!  I have a friend who's mom was on major anti-depressants and a bunch of other meds.  She started taking these along with a couple of other essential oils and she is now DRUG FREE!!  That is awesome.  She says that she feels sooo much better then she ever did on the anti-depressant drugs.....imagine that :)
 (I am not recommending that you go completly off of your meds if you start taking these vitamins.  That is something that you (and your doctor) will have to decide and figure out what is best!)

Build your immune system......

It is getting that time of year again......sick season!  Yuck!

I have a love/hate relationship with the cold weather season. 

Love the change to cooler weather and that means light sweaters and jackets where I live. But HATE what kinds of sickness the weather brings with it!

So with using doTERRA Essential oils, there is a solution to the problems!

Bring on the ON GUARD!  This is one bad boy of an Essential oil.  With a blend of Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary.  The oils in this blend have been studied for their strong abilities to kill harmful bacteria, mold and viruses.  This blend can be diffused into the air or used to clean and purify household surfaces.

This is one of the daily oils that gets rubbed onto the bottoms of my kids feet, both morning and night.  I also diffuse OnGuard in the air at least once a day.  If I know that a sickness is going around at school, I make sure that it is diffusing when they get home.  Also, I will dilute 1-2 drops in a quart size mason jar and add some to their glasses of water, so that they are getting it internally as well!

There is a story about a high school janitor who uses doTERRA essential oils and decided that he was sick of the smell in the hallways at the school.  So he thought what the heck, I am going to start diffusing some OnGuard to make it smell better and hopefully kill some of the bacteria in the air as well.

So he started doing this at night, while he was doing his nightly routine and the hallways were starting to smell better. 

 But something else was happening as well.  Down the hall in the Biology lab, the bacteria and stuff in their pee tree dishes were dying and the couldn't figure out why.  So they started thinking and tracked back to the janitor and found out that he had been diffusing the OnGuard!! 

WOW!  that is AMAZING!  It is powerful stuff.

So, I highly recommend you to start putting this on you, your kids, hubby and those around you to keep them from getting sick!!

Also, at Convention we found out that OnGuard can kill MRSA!!  So, start using OnGuard as a daily disinfectant in your home.  At 3-5 drops of OnGuard to a water bottle and spritz the areas clean!

doTERRA Convention

We just got back from the doTERRA Convention in Salt Lake City.  It was soo worth going.  We learned so much stuff.  That we can't wait to share it with you. 

doTERRA launched the new release of 8 NEW products.  They are amazing.  We will do more detail on them later, but for now here they are : 

New products:
 Clearskin foaming face wash and new formula clearskin essential oil blend

Sweet Fennel single essential oil

Solace: an essential oil blend for balancing hormones


Phytoestrogen Nutrients

We have learned so many things.

But One quick tip: If you put 3 drops of On Guard in 32 oz glass spray bottle and spray surfaces, MRSA will not grow for 7 days!

My AWESOME hubby planned a weekend getaway for the 2 of us a couple weekends ago.  We were both soo excited to have a fun no kids weekend, to say the least it was WAAAY over due....like 2 years :) 

Anyways, the day came that we were to leave and I was packing all of our junk (cause I ALWAYS pack for like 5 days when I am only going to be gone 2!!) and my stomach started feeling a little queasy.  I thought to myself.....oh great, this is JUST what I need.  So, I kinda ignored it and hoped it would go away.  Well.....it didn't. 

Hubs came home from work and looked at me and instantly knew I didn't feel good.  I told him it was nothing just my stomach a little upset, we were STILL going :)  So, I went to the bathroom one last time before we headed out!  By the time we got to the gas station about 5 minutes away, I was feeling really yucky!  GREAT....I'm thinking.  I seriously don't want to be sick.  I didn't say anything to my husband while he pumped the gas, I didn't want to ruin anything.

So, I reach behind the seat and grab my oils!  Why hadn't I done this earlier....dummy :)  I didn't have all of my oils with me I had left most at home with my mom for my kids, just in case.

I did have ONGUARD, PEPPERMINT and FRANKINCENSE.  So I start rubbing my belly with all 3 of them then I grab my bottle of water and drop 3 drops of peppermint and start drinking it.  Hubby gets back in the car and can smell the oils and looks at me like uh oh!!  I told him I'm fine, lets get the heck out of town!

So, I continue to rub the 3 oils on my belly and drink my peppermint water.  Maybe 20 minutes later, my queasiness was completely GONE and I felt soo much better.  My stomach never hurt not even a little bit after that!

It is so nice to have something to turn to in moments like this! Otherwise, I don't know how much fun our trip would have been. 

Happy Oiling,

Yeast infections...........

The other day I got a text from one of my friends, asking if I had any extra Melaleuca that she could buy from me, unfortunately, I didn't!  I told her I could make a sample bottle of it for her to get her by, till she got some more.  She thought between her and her mom's stash they would have enough for her sister-in-law to use. 

We got to texting back and forth and to find out, her poor sis-in-law was pregnant and had a yucky yeast infection!  IF you have ever had one of these then you totally understand how AWFUL they can be!

She was going to just use the melaleuca for that.  I told her that I had some CINNAMON and that it works wonders for those types of infections. I offered that I could run some to her sis-in-law if she wanted me to,  so she asked her and she was like please :)  So, I took some over to her later that afternoon and let her know that I had already diluted it, because Cinnamon is super warm. I only put ONE drop of cinnamon in with about 20 drops of doTERRA's fractionated coconut oil and took it to her.

Then I forgot about it for a couple days until I talked to my friend again.  She said that her sister-in-law had used over the counter medicine, and a PRESCRIPTION for her infection and neither of those had worked.  Then, she used the cinnamon and Melaleuca and OVERNIGHT she was soo much better! 

It really is amazing how fast doTERRA essential oils work.   
I was happy to help them and so glad that it worked and helped to relieve a pregnant woman of her miserable infection!

Would you like to WHISPER, instead of yell at your kids or hubby?? 

Would you like to feel more hormonally(ok, I have no idea if that is even a word!) balanced?

Do you ever just feel kinda out of control?

Do your kids drive you NUTS and if they say one more word you are going to absolutely LOSE IT?!?!

OR does that certain time of the month just change you into a whole different person?

NOW, I am not admitting or denying that any of the above has ever happened to me..... :)

But, thanks to doTERRA's Whisper Essential Oil, I have became a MUCH better mom and wife. 

Every morning, while doing my daily routine of oiling up my kids for the day, I make sure that I rub one drop of this on my wrists and rub together.  I can tell a HUGE difference in myself.  It really is amazing, but I know that my kids and hubby sure do love it :)

So, do YOU want to WHISPER??

traveling with oils...

Last week my sister in law Kiley sent me a text it went something like this:
'what oils stop puking!'

My 12 year old niece was sick and they were in the middle of vacation, traveling.
Naturally my first thought was GINGER!
She didn't have it.
I asked if it was sickness or motion sickness.
She thought it may be FOOD POISONING!
(I must add that Kiley is an EMT and Nursing student so when she diagnoses something I take her word)

She told me she had Peppermint and OnGuard with her.
So after looking in the MODERN ESSENTIALS book I suggested she use PEPPERMINT and ONGUARD.
a few hours later I text-ed Kiley to see how the patient (my niece) was doing and she was up and about doing well.
