Tiffany's Tuesday Tip-For Your Voting Day...




Tiffany's Tuesday Tip-For Your Voting Day

Well, today is voting day in the USA. A historical election it is. I have sensed and felt so much tension and animosity within our nation and between my friends and neighbors. What I know is that even amidst turmoil and confusion, I can choose to be a good citizen for myself, my family, and my community. As I find opportunities to help and support those around me and to see the good, the world turns into a beautiful place. I am grateful to live in the USA and I am grateful for the freedom and opportunities that we enjoy! Within 5 years, I was able to move my family from poverty to prosperity. Opportunity is everywhere!

For the last week I have been really diving into how the essential oils can help us with our mood and emotions. How amazing would it be if we could shift and change our moods and how we are feeling by simply smelling an essential oil! Guess what? It's possible! 

When we breath in aroma it goes through the olfactory part of our brain that then triggers different chemical reactions in the brain that release different chemicals and hormones. The only way to tap into our emotions and memories is through smell. If you think about it we can not touch, see, feel, or hear our emotions. It is through aroma that we can work through our emotional traffic! 

I loved the movie Inside Out! What a great visual for being able to identify how we are feeling and be able to work through the various layers of our emotions. My 6 year old will identify her mood by the different characters in the show. When she is happy, she will say, "I am Joy." How sweet is that! Even more wonderful is that she is able to identify what she is feeling. When we are aware than we can address the issue and do somethings to help us get to where we want to be. 

Today I would like to share 6 oils that are powerfully effective at addressing our emotions. Different essential oils will trigger different chemicals in the brain. Citrus oils will be light and uplifting where the tree and root oils will be more grounding and comforting. Let's look at each of these blend.

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…
