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…

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…

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:
