Women Do Not Need To Suffer

Ladies, your body use more calcium during your menstruation cycle when compared to any other time during the month, and as you know this usually comes with many unwanted side effects.

doTERRA’s Clary Calm is amazing for balancing hormones and Grapefruit oil is powerful supporter of the liver during menstruation which can help relieve head tension caused from menstruating.

I recommend taking 4 capsules of doTERRA’s Women’s Bone Nutrients twice daily, adding 1 tablespoon of powdered magnesium in the bath ( for smooth muscle relief of cramps). placing 4 drops of Grapefruit oil under your tongue, and placing 4 drops Grapefruit over your liver ( with a carrier oil).

Additionally, you can roll Clary Calm over the ovaries and uterus as needed throughout the day.

Bonus Tip: Drink lots of water!

Additional oils for soothing support of cramps, aches, and pains: Aromatouch, Marjoram, Deep Blue, Basil, Ginger, and Wintergreen.

Apply topically as needed.

Support your adrenal glands naturally

Maintaining healthy adrenal glands (adrenals) is a key to overall wellness and longevity. Unfortunately, due to our stressed lifestyle, most of us suffer from adrenal fatigue.

Signs of adrenal fatigue are weight gain or loss, salt/sugar cravings, loss or low libido, brain fog, low Blood Pressure, frequent illness or lowered immunity, fatigue after physical and/or mental exertion, irritability, and difficulty in sleeping.

There are three types of adrenal dysregulation: tired and wired, can’t sleep, increase in energy in the evening and exhausted all the time.

Lifestyle choices that support your adrenals: 

Sleep, Sleep, Sleep. Going to bed and getting up at the same time every day.

Go to bed before 10pm.

Staying in bed until 9am, the most restorative time for your adrenals is between 7am-9am

11 min nap 2x per day

Hydration – divide your weight by two, drink that number in oz of filtered water daily. Add 3-5 drops of your favorite citrus oil (doTERRA’s lemon, grapefruit or wild orange) per 20-30oz of water.

Adrenal supportive diet:

Lower carb breakfast: protein and vegetables

Lower carb lunch: protein and veggies

Quality protein/vegetables/complex carb dinner

Snacks may be needed to maintain blood sugar balance

Eat within an hour of rising

May need a snack before bed

AromaTouch Technique 1x per week

DIY Deep Hair Conditioner

Did you know that you can use essential oils for hair? As gentle, natural components derived from the earth, certain essential oils can promote healthy-looking hair. While many hair products on the market are filled with chemicals, using essential oils for hair provides you with a safe, natural way to support beautiful locks. I recently made this DIY Deep Hair Conditioner at home using some of my favorite doTERRA essential oils—Peppermint and Geranium. With only a few ingredients and your choice of essential oils, you can easily make this essential oil deep conditioner at home to give your hair a smooth, healthy shine.

3 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 drops doTERRA essential oils
Stand or hand mixer

A few great essential oils for your hair include: Lavender, Peppermint, Rosemary, Geranium, and Clary Sage. You can use one or all five of the essential oils in your deep conditioner.

Put coconut oil, olive oil, and essential oils in mixing bowl.
Mix on medium/high speed for 5 minutes or until ingredients are whipped to a thick and creamy consistency.
Once whipped, apply to clean dry hair.
Comb through with wide tooth comb to evenly distribute.
Let sit 15-20 minutes. Rinse, shampoo and style as desired.
Repeat once a week or as often as desired.
Enjoy your soft, healthy, and chemical-free hair!

Prayer of Gratitude

Today I am grateful for the cloudy skies above and the intermittent sun breaks. Grateful for the light rain falling on the red and golden leaves that cover the yards, sidewalks and streets. All those fall colors and that fresh November air on my face. And as I gaze around and inhale the cool air, I am grateful to be immersed in this everyday magic. Grateful to be alive and to recognize the magnificence of these moments in time and space.

What are you grateful for?
