No more boring water!

The number one complaint I hear about water is “I don’t like the taste” which is to say there is no flavor.

WATER is SO IMPORTANT! Drinking enough water helps your body in many different ways: regulate body temperature, no one likes to feel sweaty or too cold. Keeps joints lubricated, helps prevent infections and delivers nutrients to cells to keep organs functioning properly. I don’t know about you but that sounds pretty important to keep your body running smoothly. AND being well-hydrated also improves sleep quality, cognition, and mood.

So, what do you do when you don’t like the taste of water… Add a drop of doTERRA essential oils (EO) to your water. Citrus oils like Lemon, Lime and Grapefruit are some of my favorites.

Today’s “do you doTERRA daily” is simple…add some oils to your water.

Raise your hands if you’re sure

Did you know that dōTERRA is more than just an essential oil company? Most people don’t, this is why I started my “Do you dōTERRA daily” writings. I wanted to help people see all of the other amazing products that dōTERRA has. And I wanted to show how easy it is to make the switch to using healthy products without all the harmful chemicals.

Let’s talk about deodorant. Do you know how hard it is to find a Natural deodorant that actually works??? I do! I have tried so many and am so grateful that dōTERRA has finally figured it out (their first attempt at a natural deodorant was no very good).

So, my get to it right now “Do you dōTERRA daily” is to switch your deodorant.

I do want to remind you that this is a deodorant, not antiperspirant. Sweating is healthy! We’re born with millions of sweat glands for a reason. Sweating is a vital process that performs a number of tasks for the body such as supporting proper immune function, killing certain viruses and bacteria, helping the body stay cool, eliminating toxins, preventing diseases related to toxic overload, AND cleaning the skin’s pores, reducing blackheads and acne!

“But I have Sensitive skin” Not a problem!!! dōTERRA’s got you covered with a Gentle Formula.

Do you want the science-y goodness?? Then check out this Time article on the dangers of deodorant. NOT to worry… dōTERRA’s Natural deodorant is aluminum, paraben, phthalate and talc free. It features arrowroot powder and baking soda to give you a long lasting freshness and dryness throughout the day!

This video is a MUST watch!! I will be referencing it several more times. If you don’t watch it today that’s ok, you will have a few more reminders this week.

One more thing, you have to give your body time to adjust to a natural deodorant. It takes almost 2 full weeks to officially detox toxic ingredients from your armpits, and you may sweat more or smell more during this detox process. Give a new deodorant a full month to decide whether it is truly working for you or not! In the mean time you will want to wipe down your pits a few times during the day and reapply your deodorant.

Do you doTERRA daily?

Everyday I see people complaining about this ache or that pain. I see them talking about how sick and tired they are of being sick and tired and I think… I’ve got an oil for that. But it is so much more than that!

I realized that people aren’t using their oils and supplements daily. They aren’t using natural cleaning products. dōTERRA hasn’t become a lifestyle for them. So, I decided I need to speak more about my daily routine, my daily dōTERRA.

Don’t get me wrong, dōTERRA isn’t the “fix” for everything…

… but it’s pretty darn close. (Can someone please get this guy to the hospital?)

I also know that people get overwhelmed. Wow that’s a lot of supplements to take, man I can’t remember all that, with the mixing and the carrier oils… oy vey!

Not to worry, we’ll take it slow. I’ll just show you a bit every day so you too can “dōTERRA daily.“

Today we are going to start out with one simple thing that you can do daily to support your immune system. Now, just like everything else in life you have choices and I’m going to give you a few. That does NOT mean that you have to do all of them. It just means that you can choose the one that you like best.

I wake up every morning and I put oils on my feet to help support my immune system. I have my go-to’s depending on how I’m feeling.

#1 Stronger – Yes this is a kids blend, but it smells AMAZING and it is strong enough for an adult, gentle enough to use on little ones.

#2 OnGuard – This is what I used daily before they made Stronger. Now here you have another choice, you could put 1-2 drops on straight (did that for years) or you can use the OnGuard Touch which is prediluted so perfectly safe to use on yourself and children.

#3 Oregano Touch – This is when I start to feel a little under the weather and I want to nip it in the bud right away. I will still use the On Guard but I add the Oregano Touch for that extra support.

You can stop here if you want and just get to “doing your daily dōTERRA” Or you can continue and read more about how and why it works in the following links: Stronger, OnGuard, OnGuard Super Science-y Study Oregano, and my personal favorite… All the things! Be sure to watch the videos in that link.

My Mom Used To Beat Me

Today’s “Do you dōTERRA daily?” is about how my mom used to beat me. What’s worse is not only did the doctor know about this but encouraged it.

Ok…let me explain; as a child I had a lot of respiratory issues and one of the ways to break up the lung congestion was to beat me. My mom would cup her hand and beat on my chest and back for about 20 minutes several times a day. This would result in my coughing violently and producing a myriad of colorful interesting things coming out of my lungs…TMI???

Why am I telling you this? Recently I was asked about my why, my real why. We have so many reasons why we do certain things and this friend of mine reached deeper, asked deeper questions and I was brought back to my childhood. In elementary school I remember there were a few years that I spent more time at home on the couch then I did at school. I missed out on almost every school party because I was home on the couch and unwell. I missed out on birthday parties, church events and family outings. I missed out…

I don’t want anyone else to miss out. I don’t want any child or adult for that matter to miss out on all the little things that end up being their memories later in life.

So how do I keep mom at bay? How do I keep from repeating a cycle of beating…? LOL Here is my quick daily routine:

I put 1-2 drops of OnGuard on my feet every night and every morning to support my immune system

I take the Life Long Vitality Vitamins daily (I see a whole Blog post about how awesome these are…stay tuned)

I have removed as many toxins from my home as possible, changed out my cleaning products, shampoo/Conditioner, toothpaste and laundry detergent…etc. I’m able to get all of these products from doTERRA. (I see even more posts…yay…stay tuned)

For respiratory support there is nothing better than doTERRA’s Breathe Oil. This lovely blend of Laurel Leaf, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Melaleuca, Lemon, Ravensara and Cardamom is life changing. I love how it opens up my airways without the shaky feeling that can happen with other products that are designed to open your airways quickly. For a quick tutorial on how I actually do this check out this video.

I’m so glad that I have these amazing essential oils that support my body and my family. AND I do have to give a shout out to my mom for lovingly “beating” me to keep me alive…thanks mom.
