Unwind with Marjoram

July 10, 2017

Here in Australia, Marjoram is currently product of the month. What this means for those of you who are new to dōTERRA is that if you’re on LRP and place an order of 125PV before the 15th you receive a free oil! This is a great way to experience new oils or they can be used as gifts. I like to use these oils as the next focus for my explorations. Marjoram, Origanum majorana, is more commonly known as a […]

my top 10 oils

June 15, 2017

Recently a new Wellness Advocate asked me what my top 10 essential oils are. Simple enough, though when I began to reply I realised what a challenging question this was. I use so many oils throughout each day this simple question encouraged me to slow down and consider which oils I use most often and more importantly why. His beautiful reply surprised me! I won’t share it, however it did make me think that maybe you would like to know […]

all emotionoil

June 11, 2017

A lot of people have told me that if someone doesn’t like the scent of a particular oil then that means they need it.  Dr Hill raised this topic himself at this years Australian Convention, and I’m sure he’s discussed it at other times too. His view is that if you really don’t like an oil then using it is going to cause stress and that is not desirable. The first time I used patchouli I didn’t just inhale it, […]

scent sense

May 29, 2017

When I was in my early 20’s I was walking through a crowd one day when I suddenly felt terror and ran! My friend tried to follow me, we finally found each other and of course she wanted to know what had just happened. I told her that my ex was here and she went looking for him. He was no where to be found and I was too frightened to move from my hiding place. When she asked if […]

suppression or release

May 14, 2017

I was 19 when I met a man who was drawn to ask me one day if I was ok. I had no idea why at the time, but I shared that I’d been mutilating myself. He was one of my teachers and to this day he has remained a friend. Back then he never let on that he felt out of his depth with what I’d revealed, instead he did some research, spoke to some people and with my […]

travelling with essential oils

May 04, 2017

Travelling with essential oils is a question I frequently receive. As I travel overseas and within Australia often I am very comfortable with knowing what I can take with me and why. For starters, your bathroom pack must fit within a 1L bag and any liquids must be in no larger than a 3.4oz or 100ml bottle. You can get silicon travel bottles easily from eBay or specialist stores. They come in various sizes and having a good idea of […]

cough, cold, flu season

April 21, 2017

We’re heading into cough/cold/flu season here in Australia and the sudden change in temperature has precipitated this. My father was coughing slightly one day and I asked if he was coming down with something. No. The next day he told me he was fine, but suddenly that evening he complained he had a head cold. He was frustrated because he didn’t know where he’d picked it up. I immediately had him using OnGuard on his feet and Easy Air (Breathe […]

Deep Blue – unexpected results

March 02, 2017

I love dōTERRA because they are pure and potent. I’ve mentioned before that I have multiple chemical sensitivity. I can detect synthetic chemicals where most people have no idea, or don’t care. I was out the other night at a meeting and had forgotten my water bottle so I wandered down the back to where the water was. I picked up the jug and inhaled and didn’t like what I smelled. I poured a little in a glass and took […]

jet lag

January 26, 2017

Jet lag is often experienced when people travel quickly across different time zones. It is most common after flying to another country and the greater the difference between time zones, the greater the symptoms of jet lag. Returning to your own time zone within a short period increases the severity of those symptoms. Of course there are some people who don’t experience jet lag. I travel regularly throughout the year and due to my extreme sensitivity I have been able to […]

Sleeping with Essential Oils

December 14, 2016

Sleep is something many people have difficulty with. My entire life I have struggled to sleep well. There have been too few nights that I have slept soundly and therapeutically. As a child I had terrible nightmares. When I couldn’t remember my dreams, which is most nights, I would toss and turn and wake often. Nightmares returned in my early 30’s and reached such a peak that I was terrified to go to sleep. Obviously I got past that. I […]
