Protect yourself from the gross

Do you Travel? If you do then this is a MUST! Actually, if you walk out your door and interact with people then this is a must!

Today’s “Do you dōTERRA daily” is brought to you by dōTERRA’s OnGuard Hand Sanitizing Mist. I’m here in Las Vegas celebrating my hubby’s 50th birthday and we are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary (a little early).

This place is LOUD…and to be honest a bit gross. So why are we here of all places? Well, we are renewing our vows…at an Elvis wedding chapel. There will be pics tomorrow!

Airports are gross, planes are gross, bathrooms are gross…get where I’m going here? You don’t know who has been touching, sneezing or coughing on the thing that you are about to touch.

First thing I did when I got on the plane was to spray down my tray. (Isn’t my honey cute??)

My go-to used to be store bought hand sanitizer, I bought the stuff by the gallons. (you tend to do that when you have an immune compromised kid) Then I learned about all the toxins that are in that stuff. If you want to read more about that check out this article.

So your quick “Do you dōTERRA daily” switch is to use dōTERRA’s OnGuard Hand Sanitizing Mist.

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.

I LOVE my Postal Delivery Person!!!

Lets talk about Monthly subscription boxes…oh my goodness they rock!!!

So the hottest new things are these Monthly subscription boxes like Cause Box, Mostess or Stitch Fix. How fun!! I love getting something in the mail and who doesn’t love a surprise? Well except what if the stuff that shows up isn’t exactly what you wanted? What if you just bought some of the same stuff in the store last week? Guess what… I have a solution

I’ve been getting a monthly subscription box for the last 6 years. doTERRA calls this Monthly subscription box their Loyalty Rewards Program (LRP) but I like to think of it as a Lifestyle Rewards Program (still LRP.) Here’s the cool thing… I get to choose EXACTLY what I want in my box. I also get to choose how much or how little I order. Not only that I also get shipping rewards AND I earn a percentage of my order back in points that I use to get more free stuff.

What could be better than that?

I’ll tell you…

Someone recently asked me to share what I get in my Lifestyle Rewards Box so that’s exactly what I’m going to do. Every month I have certain “staples” that I always order but then every month I change things up depending on what I’m going to focus on for the month. Well for March I’m going to focus on Spring Cleaning. I know I live in MN and we won’t actually see spring for 2-3 months but I’m an eternal optimist.

This Pic was taken yesterday…you got it folks March 10th…ugh!

Here are the Staples:

Life Long Vitality Vitamins

Mito2Max

Terrazyme

Deep Blue or PB Assist (Depends on which one I need that month)

A Citrus oil, I change this up every month since there are so many choices. This month I need a Tangerine.

Now for the rest of my order. Time to order more cleaning supplies:

OnGuard Laundry Detergent

OnGuard Concentrated Cleaner (SO MANY USES!!!)

OnGuard Foaming Handwash – One For every Bathroom

Purify Blend
