Eclipes Season

Between eclipses is the season we are currently in… and it’s been interesting and intense to say the very least.
____
If you don’t know I’m really into astrology and have been my entire life… well at least since I understood there was such a thing.
____
A few weeks ago we experienced a partial lunar eclipse and on Monday the US will be able to see a full solar eclipse. 
______
So as you can see within the last few weeks quite a bit has been going on in this world and well it’s all occurred during this eclipse season… just sayn’
_______
My suggestion is to relax and don’t go extreme. There’s a lot of energy flying around right now. Stay grounded.
Meditation is great if that’s your thing.
Yoga.
Be around people you love.
Did I mention… stay grounded?
______
Through out the next few days, I’ll be sharing some essential oil suggestions that can help relax and help keep you grounded this weekend through Tuesday.
Stay tuned.💙💜

doTERRA Japan August 2017 OTG Promotions

Hi there! I hope everyone is having an amazing summer! It is super humid in Utsunomiya Japan but we are all handling it, with a bit of help from our friend Peppermint oil!

August in Japan is full of PLAY…well except for all that summer homework the schools give to the kids…sigh. Otherwise, it is all about going out and being social, going swimming at waterparks, beaches, joining big summer festivals, eating shaved ice, taking 3 cold showers a day, and finding the closest air conditioner to escape all the heat when out and about.

Lime Essential Oil is the Product of The Month in Japan. When you have a Loyalty Rewards (LRP) order of 125PV or more, between the 1-15th of the month you get a FREE bottle of Lime this month! Lime can improve a sore throat, just add a drop to a glass of water and gargle a few times a day. When you are feeling heavy and tired from the humid days here in Japan you can use Lime to enliven your mood and energy levels. It is great to use in your diffuser to invigorate your mornings or when you are feeling low during the day. It blends great with Bergamot, Black Pepper and Rosemary.
A drop is tasty in a glass of ice water or you can add a few drops to some homemade salsa if you happen to have tons of tomatoes from your garden, like we did this year. Here is a great salsa recipe.

Frankincense

frankincensetree11

Frankincense known as the “king of oils.” And is also known as the holy oil, in some religions.  This precious oil is the resin from Boswellia carterii, frereana, and sacra and it is sourced in Somalia.

The harvesting process in most cases takes over five months to complete and is very difficult work, this is why Frankincense is one of the more expensive oils.

Frankincense is known as the go to oil for just about anything. There is a saying that goes, “When in doubt, use Frankincense.”

You can use it topically, aromatically and internally.

 It supports the immune system, thyroid, skin disorders, cuts and wounds, cold and flu, and balances mood. Frankincense is used in the Sallubelle blend(also known as Immortelle,) the anti-aging blend and great for skin care. Sallubelle is one of the more expensive blends but well worth it, it is gorgeous!
I like to use Frankincense on my 3rd eye when I am in meditation and practicing yoga. It centers and grounds me in my practice.
Frankincense blends well with all oils.
Its scent is rich, deep, warm, balsamic, sweet, with incense-like overtones.
Add 1 drop of Frankincense and 1 drop of Deep Blue for a good rub on tired muscles. Add one drop with diluted Fractionated Coconut Oil to the bottoms of your feet.
You can find additional research on this oil at pubmed.gov
 Fun Fact:
In the ancient world, there were few items considered to be of greater worth and value than frankincense. For this reason, pure frankincense was often referred to as “liquid gold” and was highly prized commodity for trade and commerce.
*A little goes a long way with doTERRA essential oils, using one drop several times a day is recommended rather than using a lot at once. This oil is very potent so you truly need a drop.

Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon essential oil the oil of focus. Lemon helps you stay mentally alert. It is an excellent source of antioxidants. It works great for cleaning, it cleanses and purifies the air and surface. It brings more energy and joy into your life. I love to add a drop to my water and it is a great oil to diffuse when you need a little pick me up.

Check out my Using Essential Oils Safely video on YouTube where I explain a bit about using citrus oils safely.
