New Oils! Arborvitae & Cardamom


Arborvitae  "Tree of Life"

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION 
Known as the “tree of life,” Arborvitae is majestic in size 
and abundant in therapeutic benefits. Arborvitae essential 
oil has a high content of tropolones, a group of chemical 
compounds that protect against environmental and 
seasonal threats, have powerful purifying properties, and 
promote healthy cell function. Hinokitiol, one of the 
tropolones in Arborvitae, protects the body from harmful 
elements while supporting normal cell activity. This 
compound also contributes to Arborvitae’s natural insect 
repellent properties. Thujic acid, another tropolone found 
in Arborvitae, has been studied for its ability to protect 
against common threats in the environment. Native to 
Canada, all parts of the Arborvitae tree were used 
extensively by Native Americans for health benefits and for building vessels, totem poles, baskets, and clothing. 
Because of its natural preserving properties, Arborvitae 
prevents wood from rotting, which makes it popular in 
woodcraft and for preserving natural wood surfaces.

USES
Apply 1–2 drops to areas of concern on the skin.
Add a few drops to a spray bottle with water and spray on surfaces or hands to protect against environmental threats. 
Apply to pulse points to promote healthy cell function.
Diffuse to purify the air and to repel insects inside the home. 
Mix 4 drops of Arborvitae essential oil and 2 drops of Lemon essential oil for a natural wood preservative and polish. 

DIRECTIONS FOR USE 
Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice. 
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with dōTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity. See additional precautions below.

Cardamom

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION 
A close relative to Ginger, Cardamom is known as being 
the most expensive cooking spice and for being beneficial 
to the digestive system in a variety of ways. Cardamom is 
commonly used to help reduce indigestion and nausea, 
and to soothe stomach discomfort and promote digestion. 
Its distinct scent can lessen motion sickness while 
promoting a positive mood. Cardamom has profound 
effects on the respiratory system due to its high 
1,8-cineole content, which promotes clear breathing and 
respiratory health. Native to Southeast Asia, Cardamom is 
added to traditional Indian sweets and teas for its cool, yet 
minty aroma and flavor. dōTERRA Cardamom essential oil 
is extracted from Cardamom seeds grown in Guatemala, 
using our strict CPTG® testing standards. Through a 
collaborative and responsible sourcing arrangement, we 
are able to have a significant impact on the lives of local 
partners, ensuring that these farming communities enjoy 
improved livelihoods.

REVEAL Facial System Review: doTERRA Skin Care


http://www.doterra.com/images_tools/images_prod/reveal.jpg 
  REVEAL Facial System-
        Tiffany's Review

So, at convention last year (Oct. 2013), I received the new REVEAL facial system with my Convention kit. Last week, yes last week, I decided to finally try it. I am really not a skin care girl, but after trying it, I am starting to change my ways :)
In my mind, I had thought to use this product I needed to be standing over the sink, with a dry face, then splashing water everywhere with water dripping down my arms creating a mess that I didn't want to clean up. No thanks. My solutions: use it in the shower!

Here's what I do: 
For step 1, I put a pea size amount on my fingers and began massaging it onto my skin. It feels kinda grainy but really soft and silky, and of course, it smells really good :) Really, I could have spent more than the recommended 2 minutes rubbing it all in. It felt very cleansing. Do not rinse off, add step 2. 
For Step 2, I added a small amount from bottle #2. This one looks like a clear gel. I used this right over the first product. After massaging them both in for a minute or so, I rinsed them both off. My face felt so clean and soft! Even now, a couple hours later it feels wonderful. And, this system is quick & easy-no mess!
I have a new favorite product. And really, after all the summer sun exposure, my skin, especially my face, could use some product love. 
5 Stars for the Amazing REVEAL Facial System!
PS. My husband tried it too. 2 Thumbs up :)

Helping Pool Feet with Essential Oils


For the last couple of weeks this summer we have taken the kids to our community pool. Norah, our 4 year old, loves the smaller 1-2 foot kid pool and swims around like a fish. After a couple trips to the pool, she started complaining that her feet hurt. What we discovered is the rough pool floor had rubbed the skin off her toes. Ouch! We started putting fractionated coconut oil, lavender, and melaleuca on her feet. As we have been consistent it has really helped her. As you will see, she makes a big deal about getting the oils on, but once they are on her feet she calms right down and we don't hear any complaints about her feet.

Love having the oils in our home to offer relief to our kids. This is just one experience of many!

Our Family Vacation with the Oils

Our Family Vacation with the Oils 
Don't Leave Home without Them!

I have found that we learn so much from others about how to use the oils and have success. It is the stories & experiences that teach us and inspire us. Hoping that our experiences will inspire and guide you as you vacation with the oils.


At our first stop near Crater Lake, the mosquitoes were crazy! We loaded up with TerraShield. We dabbed the oil bottle on our arms and legs and rubbed it on our faces and neck area. I used it regularly and consistently and didn't get bit. A couple of our kids that were not as consistent only got a couple bites. I am sure that without anything we would have been eaten alive.

For the few bites we got, we regularly used lavender and melaleuca. Elsie got 4 bites in a row on her hand and we watched as they went down and went away within a day. No scratching and scarring here!

While in Oregon, the boys went on a fishing boat into the Pacific to catch Salmon. My boys used the DigestZen and Peppermint beadlets to help with sea sickness.

Love the Peppermint & Wild Orange lip balm any season any where :)
 
As we were getting ready to go kayaking on Devil's Lake, near Lincoln City, our little nephew fell and skinned his leg really good. We washed it out with water then added some lavender and band-aids and he was ready to go.

Sunburns! We used lots of lavender and Aloe Vera gel to sooth our beach time sunburns. I also used a combination of lavender, helichrysum and coconut oil, put together in an Immortelle bottle, as an after sun treatment. Interesting insight: the areas on myself and my kids that we used the oils we experienced no peeling skin and the skin tanned up. On the areas we didn't treat, they are peeling. Interesting...

With a house full of people, I also did my regular On Guard and Balance on my feet each morning along with my Lifelong Vitality Supplements. With our vacation schedule I also added the Mito2Max for energy. Love it! It kept my energy and attitude high amidst everything.

One more... while crabbing one morning, I put on my brave face and picked a crab up to throw back over, the way they told me to, and I got pinched! Ouch! Used a little lavender and melaleuca and I was back in! *Crabbing was really fun. You throw down a crab pot with a chunk of meat on it, wait for a while, then pull it up fast. The crabs are caught. Fascinating creatures :)*

Tiffany's Top 5 Essential Oils for Summer

It is official. The kids are out of School for summer!! To gear up for our play, travel, and fun, we don't leave home without these five oils and often more :)   

                                           
                          Tiffany's Top 5 Essential Oils for Summer

1. LAVENDER: (all things calming) We like to use this one for burns, bug bites, scrapes & cuts. Also part of the wonderful allergy blend that we use: lavender, lemon, and peppermint. Have you tried the Tri-Ease Softgels yet?

2. TERRASHIELD- All natural bug repellant. Yeah! We will put a drop or two in our hand and rub our arms and face, then get another drop or two and rub on our legs. A friend of mine diffuses the TerraShield on her back porch. We have also added to a spray bottle for easier use.

3. ON GUARD-Community pools & waterparks, museums and science centers. Don't leave home without this immune system booster. Again, we like to put this one in a spray bottle with water as a natural hand sanitizer and immune booster for on the go.

4. HELICHRYSUM-(Stitches in a bottle) Great for deep cuts, open sores and bruising. Powerful oil for all your play. This oil is worth every penny :)

5. PEPPERMINT-Natural coolant for those hot summer days. Add to your water or spray bottle. Also love to put a bit on my tongue to freshen my breathe (check out the Peppermint Beadlets). Great also to soothe an upset tummy or car sickness. For those stressful moments, massage into your shoulders. Also a great pick me up, especially when I add wild orange. As a precaution, please avoid the citrus oils and the sun. Citrus oils cause the skin to be photosensitive.


Have a safe, healthy summer!

Tiffany
