A few words from some of the people who have decided to join us at the retreat

 

Spending a night at an onsen is an experience that one living (or visiting) Japan should not miss.
I could not think of a more soul-fulfilling way to do that than on this Iwaki Retreat with Heather, Tina and all participants joining.

Heather and Tina are putting together an experience that speaks to the heart and soul of participants. Lighting, sounds. scents – they’ve got it covered!

– Seie Morrison

I’m looking forward to the Celebrate You retreat Heather Minowa and Tina Koyama are organizing in Iwaki Onsen in October. I can heartily recommend Heather’s events. She puts a lot of care into them and this one is going to be especially relaxing and beautiful. And you’ll never go to a better smelling weekend getaway, that’s for sure!

Wake Up You Woo Interview

Friday, September 7th at 9:45 pm Japan Time, 8:45 AM EST NY Time

I will be interviewed for the first “Featured Friday” in the Facebook Group called Wake Up Your Woo. I will be talking about how connecting to my inner voice and listening to my intuition has helped me make some very big life decisions, how it has helped me start my own business in Japan and how I plan to go international with my business.

This group is run by a wonderful woman named Sofia who has helped guide me and many other women to waking up their Woo.

What is “Woo?”

“Woo” is your inner voice, your intuition…your inner knowing, or 6th sense. It’s what connects you to your guides and the universe or something larger than yourself. It isn’t life with a side of woo, but rather woo IS life.” is how Sofia explains it all so simply.

Saturday, September 8, 9am Japan time. Friday night 8pm EST

I will be sharing on how I use essential oils to help me emotionally and spiritually as well as how I use them to help connect me to my intuition in the Wake Up Your Woo Facebook Group. 

You don’t want to miss what Sofia shares in this beautiful growing group. It is one of my most favorite Facebook Groups to be part of so please go on over there and join this group today!

Join the Wake Up Your Woo Facebook Group today and join us for these awesome Lives we will be sharing this week.

Hinoki & Yuzu Japan Oils

 

IMG_2878

 

Japan has been blessed with two beautiful oils.

Yuzu (Limited) & Hinoki.

Yuzu is a limited oil in Japan that was released in June 2018 at doTERRA Japan Convention. We would love if it would be a permanent addition to doTERRA’s Japan’s collection but we are not sure how long it will be available.

Yuzu is a sour Japanese fruit with an aroma and flavor that is distinct from any other citrus fruits. This citrus fruit is bright yellow, round and slightly smaller than an orange. It has rough skin and big seeds. The taste is between that of a grapefruit and a mandarin orange; tart but very aromatic.

In Japan, Yuzu is almost never eaten on its own. It is used as a flavoring in many foods such as desserts, fruit liqueurs, tea, throat drops, also in cosmetics, bath salts, and a very popular way to bring in the Winter Solstice in Japan is to take a Yuzu bath.

Primary Benefits

  •  If you have ever been to Japan this scent will leave you feeling nostalgic. It literally has the aroma of a Japanese forest, shrines, and hot spring bathhouses.
  • Great for your skin, add to doTERRA’s unscented lotion.
  • Use with a carrier oil for a deep massage, it is a fantastic massage oil and great for circulation.

Aromatic Description

Woody, airy (light & refreshing scent), fresh

Collection Method

Steam distillation method

How To Use

Hinoki is a very calming and beautiful oil. I use Hinoki almost every day on my legs for circulation, and in my bath to help me relax before bed. It is great in a warm foot bath. doTERRA uses thinning timber and scrap wood from the forestry industry to make this oil.

  • Diffuse before going to bed, apply to the feet, back, chest for a good night rest.
  • Put 2 to 3 drops into the bath, and relax your mind and body.
  • Use it for polishing the floor and wood.
