Essential Oils for Exercise & Training

Saw this on a friend's FB page and wanted to share. As a trainer he uses the oils in two ways. First, and best, as preventative and second to treat.

For prevention, he recommends a blend of 20 drops each of cypress, lemon, marjoram, Deep Blue, wintergreen, and peppermint.  Apply before a work out to legs, shoulders, chest, whichever area you will be working on.  For treatment he goes to frankincense and helichrysum. Two fantastic oils for healing!


Just heard about this amazing blend, "Dana's Blend"  from a customer.  Went googling for it and found it.  Thought I would share.

Dana Briggs is a licensed massage therapist who was asked to

help massage the feet of 500 runners. (SeptemberNewsletter).  From her professional knowledge she put together a blend for muscle aches, pains and cramps.  Here are the ingredients for about 20 ounces of this marvelous blend.  Naturally, you could scale it back if you didn't wish to have that much. All of the added ingredients used are CPTG (certified pure therapeutic grade) oils from doTERRA.

20 ounces of purified water
25 drops Peppermint
25 drops Lemongrass
25 drops Aroma Touch
25 drops Clove Bud
20 drops Marjoram
20 drops Deep Blue
20 drops Oregano
  1 ounce Fractionated Coconut Oil (about 1/4th bottle)

We mix ours up in a 22 oz spray bottle! Shake well before spraying (oil and water still do not mix)  This will provide months of care for an active family.

*Tiffany's note: could also add the oils to a roller bottle...

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…

Roller Bottle Remedies

Lately, I have really enjoyed using different roller bottle recipes on myself & my kids. They make oil use quick & easy and less messy. You know the experience, where you are so excited that your kids are taking care of their own health, yet they are dripping and dropping oil clumsily all over the place :) 
Here are some great roller bottle solutions:

Bloody Nose Remedy with Essential Oils

Yesterday my daughter Elsie got a really bad bloody nose.  In fact, it kinda freaked me out.  Usually, when one of my kids gets a nose bleed it doesn't last long-a tissue later and it is all cleared up.  With Elsie, she was literally dripping for about 5 minutes from both nose holes. Yuck!  After 5 minutes with no stopping in site, my mom energy kicked in and sent my to my wonderful "Modern Essentials" book! 

For nose bleeds: Combine 2 drops cypress, 1 drop helichrysum, and 2 dropslemon in 8 oz. (1 cup) ice water.  Soak a cloth in the water, and apply the cloth to nose and back of neck. I am here to report that it worked! From the time it took me to take my son to scouts and back it had completely stopped without another occurance! Wahoo!

Also, since her clothes were covered with the red stuff, I quickly put them into a bucket of cold water and a tbsp. of the new On Guard Cleaner Concentrate. After a wash...stain free clothes.
