Natural Mood Elevator: POM Blend

Looking for a natural anti-depressant with doTERRA essential oils?? I got this great story from a wonderful friend & leader. Enjoy!

I went to my doctor for an annual check up...due to a number of situations in my life...I was quite upset and my doctor was quick to write a prescription for an antidepressant....I couldn't even discuss it with her and just took the paper with me....when I got home, I proceeded to look up information on the medication...including a long list of side effects (of course!)...I decided that I didn't need the side effects on top of all of my other stressors and quickly began researching which oils would help improve my very low mood.
I came up with a blend of peppermint, wild orange and melissa (4:4;1 ratio) (I call it POM) and put it in a roller bottle with fractionated coconut oil.  What a great little blend!  Worked great!

Forward several husband, mother in law, and I were meeting with one of her health care providers who suggested that she may benefit from an antidepressant...She didn't respond initally...after the visit she proclaimed..."I'm not going on an antidepressant!  I don't need any more medications!"  I told her...don't worry...I'll make a little something for you...I brought my POM blend for her and showed her how to use it....honestly I didn't think she would.
About a month later at a family function...she approached me and said "Say, I need some more of your snake oil...I really think it improves my disposition!"  I laughed at her reference to snake oil and happily refilled her bottle.

Two months later, on the phone she said she needed a refill of her 'friendship potion'....of course I refilled it...I think we're both a little friendlier when we use it!
I wonder what she'll call it next?

Slim & Sassy Skinny Wrap

Slim & Sassy Body Wrap!!

I recently came across this on the doTERRA Diamond Club site. It was too great to not share!  Enjoy!

UPDATE: I recently read a suggestion that I thought beneficial... instead of using plastic wrap made of who knows what...use muslin cloth.

I got the recipe from Becky Cox.
5-10 drops S&S
1 tsp FCO.
Combine the two ingredients and rub on "problem area" ( Make sure it is completely absorbed ) then wrap area with regular old plastic wrap! :) Leave on for 20 minutes to as long as the person would like! It detoxes! Its running like wildfire on my team! I have a gal who l lost 4 inches from her first wrap! I teach the regular class intro, and while I am teaching I have a few IPC's wrapping new guests! That way they are feeling it tingle and working as I teach about essential oils. Then I focus on the individual ingredients found in Slim and Sassy and the benefits that they are receiving on top of inch loss! * just remi…

REVEAL Facial System Review: doTERRA Skin Care

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 ri…
