How to Protect Yourself & Your Family from the Yucky Bugs!

Tiffany's Tuesday Tip: How to Protect You & Your Loved Ones from the Yucky Bugs!
Spring is here and summer is coming quickly! With the warmer weather comes the bugs! I don't know about you, but when I am outside walking the green belt, camping, or enjoying an evening outside, I do not like bug buzzing around me! 
Essential oils are amazing! When we know that they come from the bark, leaves, flowers, roots, etc of plants we can better understand their effectiveness as natural repellents. The aromas that plants give off will naturally attract good bugs and repel the yucky bugs. As we use the oils ourselves we can enjoy those same results. So, which oils do we use?
My first go to is doTERRA's Terrashield (Outdoor Blend). When it comes to outdoor protection, no defense is better than Mother Nature’s offerings. Among these are essential oils which provide a vapor barrier for plants, protecting them from potential threats in their environment. TerraShield Outdoor Blend contai…

Tiffany's Tuesday Tip: Any Nervous Flyers Out There?

Tiffany's Tuesday Tips: Any other nervous flyers out there? January 30, 2017
Over the last five days I haven been doing some traveling that took me to Connecticut and Texas. While I love to travel and meet new people and make new friends and share these amazing oils, I get nervous flying especially with when there are lots of bumps and turbulents. 
I have found that if I start using the oils before I even get on the plane I can remain pretty calm. The consistent application throughout helps. These two are my favorite:
Balance: The warm, woody aroma of Balance, doTERRA’s grounding blend, creates a sense of calm and wellbeing. We perfectly blend Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile with Fractionated Coconut Oil to offer an enticing fragrance that promotes tranquility and relaxation. Spruce, one of the oils in Balance, was used by Native Americans for health and spiritual reasons and is still used today to bring harmony to the mind and body. Ho Wood, Blue Tans…

Tiffany's Tuesday Tip Natural Solutions for Your Shoveling Woes Tuesday, January 24, 2017
We have had record snowfall in January here in the Boise, Idaho area. I have loved it! My kids have enjoyed (mostly) 6 snow days. The snow has come and stayed. With all this snow, also comes the job of clearing sidewalks and driveways. We have some neighbors that we also help. My kids love that they pay us in pizza! We are happy to help. With all the shoveling comes some sore and tired muscles.
Today I share some oils I like to use to support my body and bring relief. Here are some of my favorites:
Deep Blue (soothing blend):doTERRA Deep Blue is perfect for a soothing massage after a long day of work. Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Ylang Ylang, Helichrysum, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile, and Osmanthus work together to soothe and cool. After long hours on the computer, try rubbing Deep Blue proprietary blend on your fingers, wrists, shoulders, and neck. A few drops of Deep Blue Soothing Blend di…

Tiffany's Tuesday Tip-How do I swallow all these supplements?!

Tiffany's Tuesday Tip- Quick & Easy Tips for Swallowing All Your Supplements!  Tuesday, January 17, 2017
When I was a little girl, I could not swallow pills at all. I remember mashing them up or breaking them into smaller pieces to get them down. And if I couldn't then I didn't take anything. It wasn't until I was married that I finally was able to swallow one pill at a time. When I was introduced to doTERRA and the Lifelong Vitality Supplements I was drinking a ton of water and taking a lot of time to get all of them down. During diamond club I was visiting with a friend and she showed me this great trick. Since that time I have successfully been using this trick with success to swallow 5 at a time! I hope it helps you too!
