Euphoric Sleep Blend

dreamy diffuser blend

 

There are lots of great oils out there that support sleep: lavender, doTERRA’s Serenity blend, vetiver, & marjoram to name a few.

Patchouli plus clary sage is simply a magical combo. Patchouli is known to quell an overly active intellect, uplift creativity, calm the body, sooth anger, and act as a sedative, amongst many other therapeutic uses. Clary sage on the other hand has been known to create both euphoria and a deeply relaxed state of being. In addition, this sweet oil is known to help you remember your dreams.

I stumbled upon this combo about a month ago, and I can not stop diffusing it. The smell makes me swoon and any nighttime insomnia is quickly subdued.

Try 5 drops of each clary sage & patchouli in your diffuser and let me know what you think!

Affirmations & Oils

roller bottles

Hello! Today I want to share with you my love of roller bottles, doTERRA oil blends, and affirmations. Roller bottles are super inexpensive, less than a dollar each and they are perfect for oil play, gifts, and making your oils more accessible. I highly recommend that you have a stash on hand, as your oil experience will likely open up and be even more enjoyable.

I learn many of my favorite doTERRA blends and affirmations fromLiving Healthy & Happily Ever After, by Dr. Susan Lawton. I find her oil recommendations, blends, tips, and affirmations to be really helpful. I especially love the connections she makes with illnesses and the emotions that accompany them.

Recently I wrote about self-talk. Improving how we talk to ourselves and how we view our efforts is incredibly powerful and can support us in making major shifts with both our emotional and physical well-being.

Check out the book and experiment with the blends and use the affirmations. Let me know which are your favorites!

Oh So Simple Curry

 

simplecurryThis dish is simply exactly what you need when you have just a few things in your fridge and some coconut milk in your pantry. I always recommend keeping both green and red curry paste in your fridge- these spicy pastes keep forever and are just awesome for flavoring simple dishes. I just discovered the goodness of this dish the other night when I got home from a long trip and my husband was ready for me to start cooking again. I whipped it up in about 20 minutes flat, and cooked a pot of white rice at the same time, for a really simple satisfying dinner.

Another benefit of this dish was how much it calmed my anxiety. I was through the roof tired and anxious when I made it and after eating it, I felt so calm and clear. I love the power of nutrition and oils.

Ingredients:

1 zucchini

1 carrot

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 teaspoon garam masala

1/2 to 1 teaspoon green curry (red would be fine!)

1/2 cup or water or broth

1 can coconut milk

1 tablespoon or more soy or tamari sauce

1-3 drops doTERRA ginger oil (optional)

1-3 drops doTERRA lemongrass oil (optional)

1. Sautee veggies (feel free to use whatever is in your fridge!) with coconut oil for about 5-10 mins.

2. Add curry, garam masala, and broth and boil for about another 5 mins, until veggies are soft.

3. Add coconut milk and soy sauce and bring to boil, then turn off.

4. Add essential oils when the curry stops boiling for maximum therapeutic benefit. Consider one drop mild flavor and 3 drops very strong. * Ginger oil will help with digestion and also give your nervous system a boost and lemongrass oil will support lymphatic drainage, circulation, and much more. Please remember to only ingest Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade oils.

5. Enjoy with white rice, brown rice, cauliflower rice, quinoa or your other favorite grain. We ate edamame with this dish as well- for color and more protein. Yum!

 

 

Snot-Be-Gone

congestion bomb 2

This simple recipe is great for when your head is full of snot and you need to get out the door and teach a class, or be with people.

I do want to warn you that the cinnamon oil is quite hot and may leave your face looking extra rosy like Sneezy Dwarf. That said, this recipe works wonders. It will dry up the snot and let you feel functional for about an hour or two.

If you have really sensitive skin, I would dilute it even more.

Lg__yYJBMqghUuvwipud6DdHkUjHffHG6LFwhoWmwzI=w501-h675-noJust for fun, I thought I would show you my bright red cheeks from using this spicy remedy.

I recommend pre-mixing a little glass vial for multiple uses because if you need it, you will likely need it for a couple days. I do, however, tend to mix little batches in my hand. Rub the oil right into your cheek bones, careful to not get any near your eyes.

I do not recommend this one for little kiddos. For them, I recommend sticking to diluted Breathe oil, perhaps in a bath or diffused while they sleep.
