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.

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.

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…
