Oils were such an empowering part of my birth experience as my 18 hours of labor and 6 hours of hard pushing almost kept me from having another.. I was so grateful for my oils to support my bathing process and to also support my recovery and m new baby. Here is what every mama needs in their birth bag. I got most of my research and information from The Essential Midwife, Stephanie Fritz, she wrote a solid book called, Pregnancy, Birth and Babies, that I highly recommend purchasing from amazon.
+ Balance was the blend I used to keep myself grounded and breathing through my contractions. This powerful blend is calming and grounding and my husband applied to the bottoms of my feet and along my spine, and down across my lower back it was HUGE. I also used this diluted along the new babies spine and bottoms of her feet and has been a staple at our house ever since. I also recommend having Lavender and Wild Orange on hand as they are great addition to balance.
+ Diffusing Wild Orange & Peppermint were going the whole time during both of my births. These combo was invigorating, fresh and really helped me to focus and stay positive... My first birth was no joke and having these little tools helped so much really supported my grit. :)
+ Back labor is seriously no joke and I labored hours on a boss ball in the shower. The hot water cut the pain down in a huge way. My husband layered Balance, Deep Blue, Peppermint, Marjoram and Frankincense on my lower back and hips. I know everyone is different but this seriously was a life savor... I would ask him to reapply about every hour and a half.. I had made a roller ball up of these 5 oils pre labor and did 15 drops of each and filled the rest with FCO. It was my pain reliever.
+ After baby is born, things are super tender and need a lot of healing in the peri area. I took a 10 ml bottle of Immortelle, which has the most healing oils, such as Frankincense, Hawaiian Sandalwood, Lavender, Myrrh, Helichrysum, and Rose. This blend supports tissue repair. I put 25 drops of Immortelle into a 2 oz spray bottle and then filled the rest with either Fractionated coconut oil or Water and a teaspoon of witch Hazel, your choice. After each bathroom use with a regular peri spray bottle. I would pat dry with a dry cloth and then I used this peri spray and I promise the healing time was so much faster then it would have been.
+ Roman Chamomile, Lavender, and Frankincense were the 3 oils I used the most topically on baby and appropriately diluted. They are so gentle, calming and I used them if there were tummy upsets, and after baths to support their skin, and cellular health. I would apply on Selah's bottom after each diaper change and then along spine or bottoms of feet to support their new systems, as well as on tummy if there was some discomfort.
+ Arborvitae is red cedar and has powerful purifying and cleansing properties, but is grounding and gentle. I diffused this often with Lemon, and frankincense in our home with new baby to support little lungs and purify the air. Simply add 2 drops of each to your petal or Lumo diffuser. I can't say enough good things about this oil and or the blend.
+ I also love to have Doterra's Peace blend in the 10 ml diluted touch roller. Its a blend of Vetiver, Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Frankincense, and Marjoram, and Spearmint. I found that its very supportive to a new mama's hormones and emotions and also for our newest little one. Its already diluted and I love to swipe once on the bottoms of their feet if they are just cranky and needing some extra support to stay calm.
+ Other Oils I would have on hand include: The Onguard Hand Sanitizer is great for keeping things clean without toxins, such as wiping the handles to your carseat, or your changing pad, or your own hands when on the go. The Aromatouch blend to soothe sore muscles in your neck and shoulders from breastfeeding and to support tension in your back and hips after birth. I also love Doterra's Stronger blend for kids. Its a blend of Cedarwood, Litsea, Rose and Frankincense. These oils are both powerful and gentle and perfectly diluted for an easy swipe down the spine or bottoms of the feet to keep your littlest one and yourself humming and protect agains environmental threats.
If you are ready to get started with oils and have questions or want to jump in with your own wholesale account and get a FREE DEEP BLUE RUB and DEEP BLUE Oil this month I would love to help you get going and support you. Here is the link.
Also I love to hear what others use in their birth bag, feel free to comment and share with me.
Personal Development has been the thing that I have loved most and has grown my business more than anything. I had no idea how imperative Mindset is when you are growing your own business and wanting to create some big and beautiful.
It has felt vulnerable and scary at times.. The fear of what people thought of me and if they were going to judge me or support me was constantly in the back of my mind.
As I began to nurture my mind and pay attention to my thoughts and where my energy was going and realizing how powerless I am over people, places and things... I began to focus on growing and nurturing a positive mindset of love and faith. Learning to be aware of my thoughts, and let go of what does not serve and then nourish my mind with life giving things has been transformational.
I listen to Podcasts and Audible when I am driving, and when I am getting ready in the am, and when I am folding the loads of laundry in the evening after the kids go to bed. I squeeze it in wherever I can instead of watching amazon prime...
Yes, I traded out my television shows for podcasts; and it has been so empowering and nurturing.. I didn't realize how much I would numb out to shows and now when I listen to podcasts I am more mindful of the energy I am showing up with and what I am expending energy on.
I still love to have a book in my hand, but being a busy mama of two I find that Podcasts have been more conducive to my lifestyle so here are some of my favorites!!!
So you have your box of oils and you have it on the counter and now what do you do with them? Opening them up and starting to use them should feel effortless and fun and not stressful so let me help you.

This is a beautiful journey that you will grow and evolve with. Give yourself grace and look at it as an adventure and enjoy learning about the oils and how they work for you. This should be a fun and effortless.
A simple Morning Routine:
+ Simply put your bottle of Peppermint & Wild Orange next to your bed and when you get up, add 1 drop of each in your palm and rub your palms together and INHALE!!!
+ Grab your tongue scraper and scrape. Then. brush your teeth with your Onguard Toothpaste and add 1 drop of Clove or Peppermint to support oral care.
+ Then when swishing, you can add 2 drops of Spearmint to a glass of distilled water and swish and spit. This is a great natural mouth wash.
+ If you Dry skin Brush then add a drop of Aromatouch or Grapefruit, or the Slim and Sassy Blend to your brush and treat your skin and support your lymphatic system by dry skin brushing.
+ Then add a drop of Frankincense and Lavender to your face serum or lotion to promote clear and flawless skin.
+ Pour a tall glass of water and add 2 drops of Lemon or Grapefruit to your water and drink several glasses in the am to cleanse your cells and then consider taking a food enzyme, such as Terrazyme to support any digestion that needs to happen from the previous day.
+ As you make your coffeee, consider bullet proof coffee and add 1 drop of Cardamom, or Cassia or even Peppermint to your coffee to support a delicious ritual. Here is my video on bullet proof coffee that I love.
+ Get your diffusers going and add 2 drops each of Peppermint and Wild Orange to support mood and purify the air.
+ I love to pull out the fruits and veggies that we are going to snack on for the day, so I take my produce and put it in the sink and add 5 drops of Lemon or Onguard and let it soak for 10 minutes. Then I rinse and the waxy junk will come out.
+ Then I get my kids fed and I will apply Balance to my pulse points with some Motivate to get focused and be present during the am with my kids.
+ I also apply Balance and the Stronger Blend for kids along my kids spine and bottoms of their feet so that they can be supported and grounded. I put oils all over my house where I will be reminded to use them.
+ As I enjoy my bullet proof coffee that has good fats to feed my brain, I take a Mito2Max that supplies ATP to the mitochondria of my cells. I LOVE this stuff, but my ADRENALS love it even more. Its not a stimulant or an upper. Its full of adaptogens, green tea, and Ashwaghanda root.
+ I love to get laundry going in the am and I add a couple drops of Lavender to 3-4 dryer balls and throw in the dryer when drying my laundry instead of using dryer sheets... (so so carcinogenic).....
+ I practice intermittent fasting, and usually don't eat til about 11am. I will make a delicious shake and I add a little wild orange to my smoothie and then I take my supplements, probiotic, and I take extra vit. D and some liposomal Vitamin C. The Lifelong Vitality Pack is a phenomenal trio of whole food supplements that I recommend to anyone as a foundation for health and to fill nutritional gaps. It's all about supporting your gut, aka, "Your second Brain"...
+ The Last part of my routine that I like to bring up, is that I love to take my Cellular Health Bomb of oils!!!! I take a veggie cap of 2 drops of Lemon, Copaiba, Frankincense, Yarrow/Pom, Tumeric, Pink Pepper, and Black Pepper. This combo is powerful to support healthy cell proliferation and keep your body humming, its great for healthy cells, metabolism, and gently detoxing your body. Here is a great video on how I make my veggie caps.

Yarrow Pom was one of the newly released oils that came out at Convention in September of 2018. It has quickly become a favorite and next to Rose Touch is my favorite oil... I have always struggled with my skin and since having kids have struggled with my hormones and metabolism. Since I have been taking it internally and using it topically I have noticed some incredible differences. But lets chat first at what this oil duo is profiled for.
I have also been using Yarrow/Pom in my moisturizer or by itself only skin am and pm and my skin is radiating. The texture is smooth, the redness around my nose and the hyper-pigmentation on my forehead and around my eyes has gone away. My husband has been using too and his wrinkles have drastically minimized and I tell him he has, "Peaches and Cream skin" at the age fo 44 yrs." :)
That is not all I have noticed that this oil calms me and I feel more grounded and not so moody. I especially get moody a few days before I cycle and since I have been taking this cocktail internally I am not nearly as moody and cycles are not even close to as intense as they have been.
SO HOW IS THIS OIL COMBO SO EFFECTIVE?
According to the DoTerra Science blog this is what is highlighted,
"Yarrow|Pom is an expertly crafted proprietary blend of Yarrow essential oil and cold-pressed Pomegranate seed oil designed to be your go-to for a true inside-out approach to aging, vitality, overall wellness, and, quite frankly, how to get that glow. This synergistic and first-of-its-kind blend naturallyup-regulates the body’s protective transcription factors while activating skin-protecting proteins (inhibiting the enzymes that breakdown elasticity and collagen) with the added benefit of promoting collagen production.* Additionally, this active botanical powerhouse can be applied topically to revitalize aging skin and taken internally to support a healthy inflammatory response at the source and promotes healthy metabolic function."
There are 3 main chemical constituents that make this oil amazing and powerful.
β-caryophyllene is a powerful chemical constituent that can act on the CB2 receptors in the brain and therefore it can activate the benefits of our endocannaboid system. Let me explain so its easier to understand.
The Endocanbenoid System (EBS) is the primary homeostatic regulatory system of the body. Its in charge of regulating all the major body systems such as:
Punicic Acid is relatively new and is still being aggressively studied. Pomegranate Seed Oil is an oil extract from Pomegranate Seed and it’s benefits include:
Chamazulene baby!!! This is what makes Yarrow/Pom BLUE!!!! I love saying the word. So here is some info on this bad boy... Chamazulene is actually a bi-product of the distillation process, it does not exist prior to distillation. Some of the benefits of this are:
This oil needs to be in your routine. You will fall in love with it. So here is a video I recorded on this beautiful oil that I share how I use and incorporate into lifestyle

I also would love to connect you to my community. Here is a link to my intro class. If you are ready to take the plunge and join my tribe here is the link.
Note: I am not a physician and do not claim to diagnose or treat. I love to share my own experience, strength and hope around my oil usage and research and link what I am reading up so that you have the information at your fingertips. My heart is for you to feel empowered to be your own advocate to rock a natural lifestyle.

So much Love and Excitement,
The power of Turmeric is amazing, and this little herb, and oil can greatly reduce inflammation in the body so the body can do what it was meant to do... "get rid of the junk" so the adventure can be enjoyed. I have loved learning about this oil and incorporating into my life daily.. I use it topically for acne and then internally to support healthy cell proliferation and as anti-inflammatory.
Turmeric is a powerful oil that contains a chemical continent, called curcumin, which gives it its bright yellow color and its powerful detox properties, as well as an effective antioxidant. This herb has been used for 100's of years in India and with those that practice Ayruvedic medicine. There are many studies pointing to the power and potency of turmeric that you can dig into.
I have enjoyed using Turmeric both internally and topically. It supports healthy, radiant skin and is great for topical use to reduce impurities and zap those zits. I have taken it internally in a veggie cap with some other oils to support healthy cell proliferation, healthy metabolism, and detox and support my liver.
Turmeric is full of amazing benefits and I love to make Turmeric Tea as a morning ritual.
~ 2 Cups of Almond Milk, or Coconut Milk, or dairy, or you could even use bone broth.
~ Add 1 Tsp. of Turmeric powder
~Add 1/2 Tsp of Cinnamon Powder.
~1 dash of black pepper
~ 1 Tsp. of Ghee or coconut oil, or MCT oil.
~ 1 drop of of Ginger Essential Oil
~ 2 drops of Turmeric Essential Oil
~ 1 tsp. of Raw Honey
Add all the ingredients except essential oils to a stove top and stir until nice and warm for drinking temperature.
~ Then add your essential oils to the mixture and pour the mixture into a blender, blend tech, or magic bullet and mix... Then pour into your favorite mug and you will have a frothy, delicious Turmeric Latte. Its really divine, but it is also full of powerhouse benefits.
Love to hear how your turmeric Golden Milk Latte turned out!!!
You want to make some beautiful Valentines Day gifts? You can make something so beautiful and this bath soak is so refreshing and relaxing and absolutely therapeutic while it supports balancing your magnesium levels. I already did a blog post on epsom salt baths, but seriously this is such an easy and effective way to love on yourself and support over all wellness.
In this recipe I have paired this "magic mineral" with two great essential oils that are known for decreasing stress, supporting the immune system and supporting healthy and smooth skin. Frankincense & Lavender!!!
Lavender: This essential oil, is also known as the swiss army knife of oil. It is versatile and gentle, powerful and healing. It soothes the skin, and purifies the skin at the same time, promoting healing. It helps to reduce stress and lower your cortisol levels. Neurologically it calms the central nervous system and supports one who is working through trauma. Check a great study on Lavender here. It is a must have for every home.
Frankincense is a powerful oil that is being studied aggressively for its ability to support healthy cell function and its ability to tell if a cell is past the point of repair and needs to move out of the body or if it can support a cell to reabsorb oxygen and heal it self. It is also extremely calming to the central nervous system and supports one experiencing anxious feelings and stress. Not only that but its beautiful choice to incorporate into your skin care routine. It purifies the skin and also smooths the skin reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or age spots. Add to your bath salts and enjoy a therapeutic spa night. For more uses on Lavender and Frankincense, check out my blog post on the top 10 ways here.
3 Cups Espsom Salts
8-10 Drops of Lavender Essential Oil
8-10 Drops of Frankincense Oil
3 tabelspoons of liquid castile soap
Add 2 tabelspoons of dried Lavender
or 2 tabelspoons of dried roses
or 2 tabelspoons of Calendula flowers.
How to make:
Mix your Castile soap and essential oils in a bowel and then pour them into a bowel or glass jar with your epsom salts... mix with a metal straw or spoon and then add in your dried flowers and mix through. Then store in an airtight container.
Run your bath and add 1 1/2 cups of this mixture to your bath and soak for 30-40 minutes to absorb the magnesium, and detox your cells and destress. I love to listen to a podcast and then bring a tall glass of water with a couple drops of lemon. BOOM!!!!
Happy Self Care Sunday!!! Love to hear from you on what your favorite self-care practices are and if you have any questions.
This salve has been huge in our family. I recently got my friend Tiffany @belvoedessentials recipe and tweaked mine to make it even more healing... I added some amazing oils like Copaiba and Yarrow/Pom. This SALVE is a must have for all the diaper bags and all the mamas. I love love love this. and love that i know what is in and all fo the ingredients are nourishing to your skin with no fillers, chemicals, synthetic fragrance, or petroleum..... This salve is amazing for chapped skin, diaper rash, dry skin, eczema, or any irritations. My little guy has always had super sensitive skin and always had bumps and going green with all of my personal care products has been essential... I took one thing at a time. So I love to my salve, body butter, use dryer balls, diluted essential oils and all the things.... reducing toxins is so essential.... So here is a fabulous recipe that I think you will really enjoy!!!!!
1/2 Cup of Raw organic coconut oil.
1/2 Cup + 2 tablespoons of Raw Organic Shea Butter.
4 Tablespoons of Beeswax...
1 Tablespoon of Vitamin E oil.
20 Drops of Frankincense.
20 Drops of Lavender.
20 Drops of Copaiba.
10-20 Drops of Yarrow/Pom Optional... but so good.
2 Oz. metal tins.
Stir Stick or metal straws to stir.
Directions: Melt all the raw ingredients together in a double boiler. Or I just put a glass pyrex dish in a pan of hot water and let boil, so the ingredients melt together. As soon as all of the beeswax is melted down, and you don't want the ingredients to boil., take off of the stove and let sit. Let it cool but before it starts to set up, add your essential oils. After you add and stir, then pour the liquid into 2 oz. metal tins. I pour mine til it reaches the ribbing... then stop..
Allow the salve to set up and harden. and then you have some awesome salve that we love to use for hydration, for chap lips, for diaper cream, for cracked heals... radiation burns...... ALL the THINGS!!!
This makes a great gift.
