Shining a Light on The Shadows - Episode 1

Have you ever had a dream or a goal that just seemed so big and scary you couldn't tackle it by yourself? Well we are in that boat right now. We are two best friends with the same journey- the journey to dōTERRA Diamond rank. We are best friends... soul sisters even but we live on the opposite sides of the country to one another. We have committed to a regular accountability call with one another to inspire and support each other along the way and realised we have an opportunity to inspire and support so many people by opening up this call as a video series or podcast. Maybe you are also building a dōTERRA business? Maybe you are building a diff...

Quick Relief Caps

If you are needing some quick relief from seasonal or environmental threats especially around the change of seasons then this is a great way to get some! This is a "go-to" in our house, and we are back to using it daily 🙌🏻 . This combo is cooling, soothing and balancing both internally and externally and promotes clear breathing and respiratory function. I use 2-3 drops of each in a veggie cap and take with a glass of water. If you don't want to use your own then doTERRA have a pre-made version in a softgel available from the US store (it's called TriEase)  💕

When Life Suddenly Makes Sense!

It's a funny feeling when things finally click! When you have been wondering about the choices that you've made and WHY it all happened. Then all of a sudden the light turns on and you realise! OH THIS IS WHY! It's weird when it all suddenly makes sense! About 14 years ago I decided I wante...

DIY After Sun Gel with Essential Oils

Being Visible

I have been spending some time in quiet contemplation today. My anxiety has been triggered and I am desperately trying to find the answers as to why - if I find the trigger I am better placed to manage it going forward. This is something that comes up for me from time to ...

Are there really any coincidences? Or Have I Drunk the Cool Aid?

Ok, so it's Monday morning, the usual rush is over and other three members of 'Team Awesome' are off for the day. This is when I usually breathe out, have the one and only coffee I allow myself in a day and get ready to power up for the massive day ahead. Chloe "daycare days" are always jam packed - today I have a meeting with Digital Monopoly about Facebook marketing for The Home Loan Coach, I have a meeting with a client about a home loan application, about a million follow ups with clients and for clients and a scenario to look at- ...

The Fringe Made Me Do It!

Have you ever experienced a change in how you feel about yourself on the inside that was triggered solely by a change in how you see yourself on the outside? I have had this happen to me recently after a disastrous haircut. Thankfully after having a shocking experience with a terrible haircut at the tender age of 16 (OMG, I am soooo ugly I am going to die! My friends aren't going to speak to me anymore, my boyfriend is going to dump me - the who...

THE BUSINESS EXPERIMENT

I accidentally started a new business. It sounds ridiculous, but it is what happened. Go back to the beginning of May and I sent Lauren a text message that I wanted my own account. I wanted the 25% discount that comes with a wholesale account but not a business. I'm pretty sure I was sending off "stay away with the network marketing" vibes pretty forcefully. Perhaps this is why she took her time opening up my account? Anyway, I started using the oils, was naturally amazed by their amazingness and couldn't help but talk about them. People started showing interest, so I gave...

Sorry Aldi

Today started with a whirlwind of activity as I rushed out the door determined not to be late for my annual compliance audit. I was so juiced up on stress hormones and coffee, totally focused on getting to the office before the auditor did, that I left behind my calming bl...

Tips for using essential oils daily. Pre-blend your oils!

I am finding that doing a quick video is sometimes so much easier than writing out  blog post, although nowhere near as cathartic! I think I will be mixing it up with some videos and some actual written posts - stay tuned! However, for now enjoy this video on how you can make the most of your essential oils (by actually using them 😜)

Parenting!

I have decided to leave the actual title of this post at parenting! This is because I keep typing things I know I will regret once I have calmed down and my little "cherubs" are being little cherubs again. Hopefully this will be soon, because right now all I can think...

Ice Blue

This last week has been a challenge for me. I have been struggling big time with my anxiety. A lot of it is situational, a  lot of really stressful things happened in a row- which is always the way right? It's never a shit day it's always a shit-storm. Anyway I have been grateful for my essential oils....

Break Glass in Case of Emergency - Morning Energiser Blend

Yep it's an emergency alright! The rest of us are over our bugs but little Chloe still has a lingering cough. During the day I feel sorry for my little love, but sometimes in the dark hours of the morning all I can think is "Ahrrggghhhhhhhh". It's cold in her room and I don't trust the portable heaters, so she is in our room where it's warm and we have a vaporiser going. O...

It's Here! My Essentials Collection Has Arrived

It's here, it's here, it's here!! I am so excited. It's like being a little kid on Christmas morning. I don't know where to start. I want to make a nappy rash blend for Miss Cookie, we can all be using the easy air right now with our colds and the OnGuard protective blend. I also want to make a sleepy blend so that I can finally get a good night sleep. So many options!! Anyway no time for blogging, I have oils to play with 😋

Serenity Now.... Seriously!

Today was a challenge. Well actually, that's putting it mildly, today was a freakin' shit show. My day started with a sick feeling in my stomach, you know the one you get when you realise your darling 10 month old daughter has been blowing snot bubbles in your porridge? Yep, that happened. She's a ten month old who will only eat breakfast if it comes from mummy's bowl (because obviously it tastes better) and whilst my attention was diverted to my seven year old who had earlier been throwing up with a nasty stomach bug, I was busily eating Chloe's snot. I had both children home today whilst I  tried to keep them occupied, happy (who am I kidding) an...

A little bit of focus

I am starting to scare myself. I am not one to be talking about intuition or things being meant to be  very often- yet here I am. Oh boy, soon I am going to be talking about energy vibrations and the like. However, as much as it irritates me, I feel like we had a little bit of that happen in our house this week. Our Maxy is a gorgeous boy. He is full of life, caring, funny and just an amazing kid. He is also a character, very intense, extremely energetic, overly sensory and has a hard time at school sometimes because of this. Dave and I have had numerous meetings over the years with people v...
