Tiffany's Tuesday Tip: What's in our Missionary's Suitcase...

Tiffany's Tuesday Tip

As a family we have had a big couple of weeks preparing our oldest son to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Little Rock, AR area for 2 years. We are so excited for him to have this opportunity to love and serve the people there. Of course, I couldn't send him without a few things... :)

Some of the essentials... Lifelong Vitality (not pictured), TerraZyme (digestive enzymes for all that yummy southern food!), Correct-x (topical ointment), Shampoo & Conditioner, Deep Blue Rub, On Guard toothpaste, On Guard Throat drops, DigestZen softgels, On Guard Plus (for awesome immune support), and Serenity soft gels (good sleep), and the On Guard & Peppermint beadlets.

Essential oils!!! 
Melaleuca: for those cuts, skin irritations, and disinfecting
On Guard: immune support to stay well
Balance: grounding blend for stress and anxiety
Frankincense: Of course! For skin issues, stress, discomfort, focus... When in doubt, use frankicense!
Breathe: Respiratory blend
lavender: swiss army knife of essential oils. Calming and soothing to cuts, bug bites, a stressful day. Great for burns, seasonal issues, and skin.
Peppermint: love this one for fresh breath, tummy upset, sore muscles, natural coolant for those hot, humid days.
Lemon: To lift mood, add to water to support digestion, and to remove sticky stuff
DigestZen: For all that yummy southern food :)
TerraShield: To deflect the bugs and keep them away, I also added the spray!

I love knowing he has these oils with him! I know that they can be a comfort and support to him as he is about his work in Arkansas. 

Here is a quick video overview of what we packed.

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.
