One of my favorite things to do is to create a spa evening for myself weekly.. I love that I can make some amazing things with pure, natural, and effective ingredients. This Clay Mask is amazing at detoxifying and cleansing the skin of toxins, dead skin cells, unwanted debris and leaves my skin feelings smooth, supple and so clean.
2 tbsp of bentonite clay
2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar
1 drop of Frankincense
1 drop of Lavender
1 drop of Melaleuca
1 drop of Geranium
Combine clay and vinegar in a bowl and stir until combined.
Add the essential oils to mixture.
Apply to clean skin, avoiding the eyes and mouth.
Let dry for 10 minutes, or as long as you desire.
Rinse with warm water and follow with your favorite moisturizer.
Tips: I love to follow with DoTerra’s Verage Toner and Moisturizer and I love to nourish my skin with a mask once a week. For a thicker mask, add an additional teaspoon of clay.
Also consider creating rhythms for yourself on a daily and weekly basis so that you can incorporate self care into your busy schedule... Self care is vital.... we have to fill our cup so that we have something to give others... it can be so simple, such as a detox bath and a book for 20 minutes, or a face mask and a cup of hot tea..
Love Yourself, YOur so worth it,
I often get asked where people should start when embarking on their oil journey... I get it, it can feel very overwhelming... There are numerous kits that are amazing for taking the plunge and having some powerful tools to revolutionize how your family does health. Here is one of my favorite kits, The Family Wellness Kit. This kit has everything you need for mama and the littles in supporting a healthy immune system, uplift mood, support sleep, and foundational supplements to support a healthy gut. This enrollment kit is $275 and will be the best spent money for starting school and keeping their immune system's in check.
If you are loving this and ready to get rolling, click here.
So here is the deal, there are all sorts of kids colliding with lots of germs flying and kids are kept inside most of the day. It's super important to keep their guts healthy, and therefore keep their immune system's in tip top shape and make sure that you are healthy. Yes, mama, you need to put your oxygen mask on first, before you can save your babies... so make sure you are drinking plenty of water, getting good sleep, and taking pure, solid, and foundational supplements.
The Lifelong Vitality Pack is a total game changer and has supported my immune system, so much so, that I use to be the Nurse who "caught" every germ at the hospital and was chronically sick for 5 years... to the Nurse, mama of two and busy entrepreneur who rarely, if ever gets sick and has a thriving gut. Try it for 30 days and if your not digging it, send it back for a full refund..
The PB Assist, is the best probiotic for your littles that will leave them asking for more, with a fabulous a2z chewable, packed full of al vitamins and minerals necessary for your littles.
Then we have my favorite 2 mood blends!!! CHEER & PEACE!!!!
Cheer is an amazing blend that promotes feelings of optimism, cheerfulness, and happiness.. Its already perfectly diluted so you can apply to the bottoms of the feet and back of the spine.
Peace is a beautiful blend that supports healthy rest and sleep, as well as calming nerves.. Apply during the evening before bed after baths to promote calm and relaxation as your littles prepare to sleep restfully.
Both of these mood blends are perfectly diluted and smell amazing and are great for your kids and you.
The Top 9 Diluted oils are fabulous for on the go to swipe the bottoms of the feet and back of the spine or any point of interest. These will be used more than you ever thought possible. Here are a few basic ways to use to support your kids as they start school.
Immune support: Onguard & Frankincense: Apply to the bottoms of the feet and back of the spine in the am before school and in the pm before bed.
Tummy Tamer: Digestzen over the navel area and bottoms of the feet to support any discomfort.
Little Lungs: Frankincense, Onguard, and Breathe over the back of the Lungs.

Good Morning Mama: Cheer on the back of their necks or bottoms of their feet as your getting ready for school.
This picture brings me so much joy and was taken by my Uncle Bob Vincent. This spot right here in Southeast Alaska changes all the time, depending on the weather, the sunshine, the boats, the wildlife and every picture of this exact spot will be different... there are so many layers and variables to its' beauty. I have been marinating on a quote for a while now.

This last year has been really full and really tough. Some very special people left this earth, which left my heart so broken.. Learning to find a new normal from transitioning to a new home... learning to be a mother of two toddlers, quitting my job of 10 years, and really pursuing personal development while growing my DoTerra business, all while battling some major health issues.... I don't say all of this to be pitied... I say these things out loud so that I see how much I have walked through and to validate that life is not easy, and I can pause, breathe it all in, let it all out and give myself grace. This life is a gift and I need to remind myself of that daily when I am living in the mundane, it is there that I change and grow and make the most progress.
I have wanted to grow in my DoTerra business, and inspire, educate and empire my tribe and my leaders, I have often focused on the wrong things, and really honed in on the results I want, rather then evaluate my process and where I need to develop and grow. I have wrestled this last year and been frustrated and discouraged and then passionate and joyful. Its like a roller coaster of emotions, however, the constant has been change.. It has been uncomfortable most of the time, but oh so rewarding. This last month was such a gift, to grow and encourage my team, push through some huge blocks and hit a goal I have had my eye on since I started. When I was reflecting on what it took to get there, I realized that it was not the title that mattered, it was the journey that brought the sweetest gifts, because it wasn't easy, it was hard, and it required me to become quite comfortable with being uncomfortable... I treasure this life and all that it has.
I leave you with a beautiful blend I call my " Abundant Blend" : 2 drops each of Peppermint, Wild Orange, and Lavender in your diffuser. These oils have amazing emotional profiles that can support and foster communication that is needed, creativity, abundance, and optimism.
