Our Essential Oil Go-To for Sick Kids

Tiffany's Tuesday Tip
Norah is home sick today. Here is what we did.

This morning our 6 year old daughter woke up not feeling very good. She complained about having a sore throat and cough. We decided to take the day to stop this thing in its tracks. It became a day of essential oils. 

Essential Oil Game On!

1. Diffuser. Because of cough/congestion I diffused a combination of Breathe (Respiratory Blend) and an unsung essential oil hero: arborvitae.

Breathe: doTERRA Breathe is a remarkable blend of essential oils including Laurel Leaf, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Melaleuca, Lemon, Ravensara, and Cardamom. doTERRA Breathe maintains feelings of clear airways and easy breathing while minimizing the effects of seasonal threats. doTERRA Breathe can be applied topically to the chest, back, or bottom of feet, or diffused at nighttime to calm the senses and promote a restful sleep.

Arborvitae: Known as the “tree of life, ” Arborvitae is majestic in size and abundant in unique benefits. Arborvitae essential oil is concentrated in tropolones, such as hinokitiol, which are a group of chemical compounds that protect against environmental and seasonal threats and have powerful purifying properties. These compounds also contribute 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.


2. On Guard in warm water. I put 1 drop in a mug of warm water, dumped half the water into another mug and filled the cup with more warm water. This diluted it so that she could enjoy drinking it without the strong taste.

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…
