Welcome to a day in the life of an oiler! I shared this with my team last Saturday, and thought maybe you would enjoy a peek into the Saturday of an oiler as well.
When we first bought oils, I thought we would only use them when we were sick. I had NO idea we would use them everyday, in every way, in EVERY ROOM OF OUR HOUSE!
In the shower:
We LOVE that our shower products are oil infused and toxic free!
*Shampoo - this sparkly oil infused shampoo takes a second dose and some extra water to really bubble. (foaming store shampoo has harmful additives that make it suds) It is color safe and smells wonderful! I only have to wash every 3rd day now because of its balancing properties!
*Conditioner will leave your hair silky soft. Allow it to soak while washing your body!
*DoTERRA Body Wash smells like grapefruit and bergamot (citruses) and is an cleansing and aromatic spa experience for your bod! Safe and natural alternative to store soaps. Easier to clean the shower too, NO SCUM!
*HD Clear Foaming Face Soap is a great choice for the shower because of its compact size and how easy it is to use for all skin types. Helps keep skin clean and clear.
*Breathe oil - there is no better way to start your day then a couple drops of lung opening Breathe oil just outside the water spray of your shower.
Alert, lungs open and oxygen flowing for a great energetic day!?
Amavi (Balance) bath bar makes the most incredible leg shaving solution! You can also use the Spa Sugar Scrub, for an amazing dead skin cell slough off!
Our glass shower shines when we spray On Guard concentrate and use this squeegee.
On Guard Concentrate makes 18 bottles of cleaner for a little over a dollar! Safe, natural and kicks those cooties in the butt.
How do you beautify?
Straight out of the shower it's time for the oh so luxurious Beautiful Hydrating Body Mist.
This light hydration makes the skin shine and smell like the light airy beautiful blend.
Next up, Unscented Body Lotion for legs and the thick, amazing, favorite of mine, the replenishing Body Butter for elbows, knees, legs and heels to keep them soft and smooth. Smells amazing and is soooo THICK and luxurious, as body butter should be!
Shining white teeth, good breath and plaque reduction are easily within reach when using the On Guard Whitening Toothpaste (safe for all ages) and the awesome cinnamon-esque On Guard Mouthwash!
Perfect PH in just 4 uses. Wow! Your mouth will thank you!
Great for supporting a healthy immune system too. What a great place to work, morning and night, in the mouth. ?❤
I am so in love with the Essential Skincare line! Face is already washed in shower, so toning and hydrating are a simple step before makeup....
Toner Primary Benefits -
*Aloe, watermelon, and apple extracts tone and balance the skin
*Rich in oligosaccharides, Lentil Extracts increase skin hydration, reduce the appearance of oily skin, tone the skin, and visibly reduce the appearance of pores
*Witch Hazel is a natural astringent that helps remove excess oil from the skin and reduces the appearance of pores
The intensive moisture your skin has been waiting for. doTERRA’s Hydrating Cream is packed with emollient-rich ingredients and probiotics to provide intense hydration and nourishment to the skin, helping reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and aiding with skin barrier renewal for suppler, younger-looking skin. Its rich formula provides a burst of active moisture without leaving an oily residue. Carefully chosen ingredients are designed to rejuvenate the look of mature skin, as well as to help reduce the visible signs of aging due to both natural and environmental causes. Probiotics reinforce the skin’s natural barrier, helping to improve skin’s natural health and beauty. Perfect for day or night use!
I add BLUE TANSY to it for extra skin benefits and went from tolerating the smell, to CRAVING it!
Chamazulene, a chemical component in Blue Tansy, provides the characteristic indigo color and is recognized for its skin soothing benefits. At the same time, the main chemical component Sabinene helps diminish the appearance of blemishes. Uplifting to the mood, Blue Tansy provides a sweet aroma to fill any room. It’s perfect for massaging into skin with fractionated coconut oil or lotion after a long day of work or intense exercise to aid the body in the natural recovery process.
Natural deo tends to be a little stiffer than its un-natural counterpart.
Try using a drop of Balance oil, or a mist of the Hydrating Spray under your arms first, for a smoother glide.
Greening up this part of your life is HUGE!
Your body was designed to breathe, to flow like a river not be filled with aluminum sweat blocking products and become a swamp.
This product works!
If you have odor and need a pit detox, I recommend doTERRA Mud Mask for a while at night.
Root to Tip serum is perfect for preventing fly-aways and dry ends. It's silky nourishing properties will help your hair to shine.
Protects your hair from the heat of the dryer too.
If you have oily hair, avoid roots and focus only on tips.
Saturdays are for deep cleaning! Thank goodness we can do our WHOLE house with ONE product!!
On Guard Concentrate to the rescue....❤
*Tackles the nasties, without the stench of harsh cleaners, instead filling your home with the smell of oranges, clove and cinnamon.
Safe for all ages to use and help mommy! No calls to poison control needed if ingested.
? *This one bottle makes about 16 bottles of diluted cleaner.
? *The straight concentrate is great for toilet bowl cleaning and hand wash dishes. Easy recipes on the side of the bottle!
Heading out the door and we want to protect our family....we oil proactively every day!
We have several safe, natural choices to promote health!
?Kids Line Stronger Blend
?On Guard Touch
Our kids grab a roller and roll on their throat or feet bottoms before we leave the house.
We do this during the sniffley season especially! ?
Any of these will be awesome for supporting the immune systems response to exposure.
Trying a southern BBQ joint for lunch, but that doesn't mean we are skipping our LLV vitamins and gut support....
Life Long Vitality Vitamins provide the nutrients it takes to bring energy and vitality to your body. It is a life giving, life changing product, that will change the way you do your day.
It's also the nutrient equivalent of a $900 plus grocery bill for the month. No kidding! (see next pic)
It is doTERRA's number 1 best selling product for a reason! I dare you to try it.....you won't go back to that comprised, poor quality, one a day. Come with a 30 day money back guarantee. I have NEVER had a return on it!
I am not setting foot in this store until I have sprayed our hands with this awesome On Guard sanitizing mist......
Once inside, I will also spray my cart handle.
On Guard Sanitizing Mist contains the more natural occurring ethyl alcohol, apple extract and on guard oil protective blend!
Doesn't dry out your hands either. WIN WIN! :) ?? W
Home from the grocery store....the germs stop here.?
One of the best ways to prevent sickness in your home, is to have everyone lines up to wash with On Guard Foaming Hand Soap!????
Goes after all the bad bacteria, while allowing the good to remain.
No more dry cracked hands this winter. Just healthy balanced germ free ones!
One On Guard brown refill bottle, fills two white foaming hand soap pumps. No dilution!
I find I drink SO much more water now that we have oils to add......?
This little basket of oils lives right in my kitchen for easy drink flavoring access.
My favorite that makes me feel the biggest change in my day is Frankincense Spearmint water. 1 drop each in 30 oz.
?Another great choice is any combo of citruses.
??Orange and peppermint are lovely for energy!
And today, I am doing 2 drops of Cinnamon bark. Totally YUM! Great for my immune system, blood sugar and circulation.
Just make sure you are using glass or stainless steel cups! No plastic!
We wash our fruits and veggies with an extra diluted On Guard Concentrate spray!
You can also soak fruits and veggies in a bowl of lemon oil water for 20 mins. You will be shocked at the dirty water!
?Another treat is soaking apple slices in On Guard and Cinnamon Bark water! Mmm
When you use the world's purest essential oils, than there are many that can be used in cooking.....
?Simply roll over your doTERRA oil bottle. Does it have a supplements facts label on it like a pantry item? It can be used for cooking!
?Does it have a listed ingredient list? Aromatic or topical use only.
They are the most beautiful little cooking extracts! ???
Tonight we are adding Thyme & Rosemary oil to Beef and Sweet Potato Stew. ?
Hand wash supper dishes get a bubbly On Guard Concentrate scrub in the sink....
Told you you could use this stuff for just about everything!?
All the wee little Fergusons are tucked into bed,
Serenity Softgels & Calmer quiet the noise in their heads.
Relaxed and soothed, they drift off to sleep,
No one even needs to count silly sheep!
On grinder, on thrasher, on yeller, I say,
And you, teenage jitter bug....that is not happening today!
Everyone sighs, as they fall into deep rest,
We all thank the Lord, doTERRA is the BEST! :)
One more load of laundry to start before bed.....
This On Guard Laundry Soap does 64 loads.
On Guard means it's cleaning your clothes and the basin of your washer too!
Have you ever looked up how toxic your soap, softener and dryer sheets are?
(My All Free and Clear got an F rating)
Once I knew the truth, I threw the other brand away and never looked back.
When you know better, you choose better! Your family is worth it.

LUMO Diffuser set to run 10 hours and fill my room with amazing, relaxing smells.....
---->Using 4 Serenity, 4 Wild Orange and 2 Cedarwood tonight!
Serenity is relaxing, wild orange is a natural sedative and cedarwood is helpful for keying in the bodies natural melatonin production.
1 Copaiba soft gel and 2 Serenity soft gels are about to knock me out.....
It was fun to hang out with you today. Did you learn something new about being a daily oiler?
I used to think we would just use oils when we were sick......Boy was I wrong!
We use oils and oil infused products, every day in every ways and in every room of the house!!
I would love to empower you to do the same, and live better, feel better and choose better with safe, natural doTERRA at a HUGE savings to you.

doTERRA's Dream Convention touched my heart deeply.
So much so, that I cried the better part of 3 days.
In fact, I was so blown away, that I haven't even been able to process it all enough to share it with you guys. I am never speechless! Haha, this should tell you how amazing it was! ;)
Check out this 2 min intro:
Dale and I took off for Salt Lake on our first week in the new RV, it sure was quiet without the kids along. I kept looking back to see if they were ok! Oopsie.
Other than a massive bug attack on the windshield, it was a quiet 2 day trip over to Utah.
We stopped for some gourmet burgers, hand cut fries and fresh blackberry custard milkshakes at our favorite stop along the way.....
Back on the road again for the evening and a whole nother day...this is no quick trip!
We settled in and checked in on our team as they arrived. 97 from Team Dorothy this year! SO fun! That also meant we didn't get to see all of them....growing pains.
The first night we had a steak dinner with some of our uplines at Ruth's Chris Steak house, it was fabulous as always!
The next am, we registered and got our cute doTERRA backpacks for the week, met the team for lunch and hung out at a come and go welcome reception......
Have you all ever heard of Dot's pretzels? Everyone was talking about them, so we grabbed a bag. HOLY AMAZING! Tasted like the baked ones people make at Christmas to munch on.
The next night was the formal Gala, and a time to celebrate new Diamond leaders. We didn't walk blue, YET, that is planned for next year, but we got to cheer my momma and team leader, Amy, down the purple carpet as DIAMONDS! SO special to see them have walked into the next level of leadership and hit those difficult ranks.
Day 1 started bright and early with a long line into the arena. We found a little extra LOVE while we waited in line! See the water heart?
AND see those fun red shoes?
Have you ever tried Rothy's? I wore them all day and didn't have any blisters on my pinky toe and heel, which I normally do with ballet flats. These ones mold to your feet and are SO awesome!
Rothy’s are made from recycled water bottles once destined for the landfill. Knit by machine and crafted by hand, our shoes are seamlessly constructed using a 3D knitting process that significantly reduces waste. Because we believe doing good should look good, too.
They are machine washable too, just pull out the insole and hang to dry.

We found our seats in the Diamond section and enjoyed our Diamond perks! Snack boxes, gifts and up close seating.
And now the learning begins.....
Science, farmers, humanitarian efforts, ministry updates as we fund rescues of sex trafficked kids with O.U.R., education and support with Days for Girls and many many others.
New products! Ground breaking research, it was AWESOME!
Here are some of doTERRA's many farmers from all over the globe. We pay fair wages, on time, no middle men to gouge prices. We drop wells, build schools, staff and fund emergency care clinics and more. That is why over 90% of our farmers will only work exclusively with us, moving towards 100%! They are so blessed by doTERRA. <3
The product showcase is this HUGE series of connected ballrooms you can walk through and learn all about every aspect of doTERRA and try on and smell all kinds of different products. They even had pergolas full of green mandarian, and real roses and they shared about the oils form.
Smelled SO good! Great place to go on lunch break.....
I LOVE the day we get to cheer for all the new Silver, Golds and Platinums! Such a huge accomplishment. Loved seeing our Dorothy family cross that big stage! :)
Hanging out during an evenings...... One night was a big street party, another just one to connect as a team, and one evening, all the teams close by came to hang at our RV.
The next day was another packed schedule as was day 3. Highlights included hearing from 1996 Rawanda Genocide Survivor Immaculee Ilibigiza, and how doTERRA has gone over to help build schools with dorms for impoverished children in her community.
We also heard from Tim Hightower and his wife! Lots of pro-athletes use doTERRA to stay fit and performing at their best!
All month doTERRA had been talking to us about this secret guest speaker, per contract, they were unable to mention this name until the moment they stepped on stage.
WELL, let's just say we had a lot of guesses and some of us were right, but when this quote came on the big screen, the CROWD. WENT. WILD.
I have never heard such a defeaning roar!
He sang several songs and then did a full interview on stage. It was so phenomenal!! He has a real passion for helping others and does so through his laughing man coffee. He and his wife also use doTERRA and requested partial payment in oils! :)
As if we hadn't cried enough during the story of faith and forgiveness Immaculee shared, or the gold leader with Lou Gherigs they wheeled across the stage and honored.......they brought out a performer who wrote and sang a song to be the theme song of doTERRA's healing hand foundation, our doTERRA ministry.
Remember, doTERRA is a 2 billion dollar, DEBT FREE, company with a HUGE servants heart. They give abundantly to the hurting all over the globe and it is a BEAUTIFUL THING to be a part of!
If you only watch ONE video, let it be this one. We saw it in person on stage, and when that kids choir poured up onto stage in white with candles, we all got chills!
This video makes me cry all over again, it's the music video version of what we saw live:
I left this years convention, more excited and empowered to dream and dream BIG with doTERRA, and all the things we can accomplish when we work together......the best is yet to come!
"There are people God out there waiting to be impacted by the dreams God put in your heart."
I am so excited to see all He has in store for us with doTERRA! Maybe He is calling us to help YOU, with natural health and healthy finances too. Head on over to the other tabs on this website to read more, we love to help people and are always praying for new builders to work with.
Well, just like that, it's time to head home. We are exhausted but invigorated.
Can't wait for next year!
Hi from Kansas! We have been here two months now, and just kinda settled into our school routine and moving from one RV to another in the meantime. It has been the slowest, busiest, fastest two months if that makes ANY sense at all?!
We taught oil classes, got fun mail, wrote letters to the White House for school, cranked out some fall smells and busted out some pumpkin decor.....
We have cleaned and cooked, had fun playdates, mommy Avery dates, and even a best friend shopping run to Wichita.
Remember that tree limb that fell on our trampoline?
We knew that tree was bad and would need to come down one day, just a few feet from our shed home and parked RV, but we had been praying angels around it in the meantime. Every storm seem to grow the urgency in our hearts to get it down, so we called a good friend and tree pro to get it down before we left again. We knew we would all feel better once it was done!
There was a MASSIVE branch hanging over our roof that was split down the middle, as cottonwoods often do. Our tree guy was so surprised that it hadn't dropped butt first yet. I told him it was because of the assigned angels to it, and he said YES!
Such a beauty, sad to see her go.
YOU GUYS! It was HOLLOW to the core. And every limb and all the way to the base. PUFFS of rotten tree dust! OH MY WORD. God is so faithful to have protected our home and the RV parked outside it for so long.
The State Fair was in town while we were home. We usually avoid it and go hide out at the lake, but we did go enjoy dollar day!
I had to take a photo next to the Wizard of Oz Scarecrows for my DoTERRA Dorothy team!
Destiny got to be one of 18 selected for the hypnotist show. Oh my word, we were in HYSTERICS!
I took way to many photos, and the videos are posted on my FB page.
In the following slideshow, you will see them konk out, then wake up to realize their fingers were stuck together. Later, shoes became binoculars to see all the ugly pajamas in the audience, their dream bird pet flew over the roof and landed on their finger if they did the special bird call. And then, it pooped on them! Silly bird. Destiny's bird was an ostrich when he asked her about it on the mic. ;)
We calf pulled, walked around the fair until our feet ached, listened to the drum line and then headed to dinner with our good friends, Matt and Liz! (no pics, of COURSE)
We had family photos done while we were here. Here are a few teeny sneak peeks he sent me. I am not so patiently awaiting the rest!
SO fun! I love that we got to shoot in our home state. With SUNFLOWERS no less! :)
Here are the kids checking our amazing photographers work. LOL! I will share more, once I get the images back.
Saturday, I was busy packing and preparing for our upcoming trip to Salt Lake. I tell you what, these kids CRACK ME UP!
They came down as each other to dinner tonight....
"Pax" (Avery) came in first and I legit thought it was him. I said what is on your head?
What is on your head? I lifted the hat and said "What kind of wig or hair do you have on?"
It was AVERY! My jaw hit the floor.
They had us in hysterics over dinner being an exaggerated version of each other. Love this silly crew.....
That is it from Kansas! Watch Instagram for our first long run in our new RV and gorgeous Utah. I have been on the hunt for furry rugs, foot rests and bedroom shams before we left. Lots of last minute details for sure.
I am so excited to go hang out with 85 of my Dorothy team there, along with 35,000 doTERRA peeps!
I will share more after we get back. We are going to learn a ton about oils in the medical world, hear about all the ministries doTERRA is helping, celebrate shiny new Diamond leaders on our team, and SO MUCH MORE.
In the meantime, keep an eye out on the RV oilers Instagram or Facebook page! :)
Do you LOVE to share what you love?
When you find something that works for you or your family, do you find yourself naturally talking about them or suggesting them to others? :)
?If so, then you could be a natural oil SHARER!!!
It's simple to turn a love of safe, natural essential oils, into INCOME......
*Step one, get doTERRA oils in your home. I will help you pick a kit and educate you every step of the way!
*Step two, fall in LOVE with them! Out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks!
*Step three, be a product of the product. You can't share what you don't use. Using doTERRA is an affordable way to green up your home, and better your health, while also improving your financial situation.
Watch this Business Overview to see if you could do more with your passion for helping others, and bring in some awesome income for your family.
? Free oils, debt paid off, financial freedom, a spouse home from work, more vacations...it is all possible. DARE TO DREAM BIG! <3
Dale and I are living breathing proof that doTERRA is the vehicle to dreams come true, thank you Jesus! Dale retired from insurance at age 34 and has been home with us ever since.
We experience life together, all as a family, are healthier than we have ever been, and live financially free!
I want to share a video today, of Dale and I going over all the ways doTERRA blesses those who share oils!
Before watching the video, please print off or download the Build Guide so you can follow along:
Any questions? Drop them in the comments below!
We are always praying for people to run this race with. We genuinely want to see you healthy and financially healthy as well. Is it you we have been praying for?
June 30th, we hit a MAJOR goal of ours we have been working hard towards......
In fact, we are the 1st doTERRA Blue Diamonds in Kansas! Cool bonus. :)
Blue Diamond is the 2nd from top rank in doTERRA, the top 2% of its leaders. I am so honored to have a team under me of educators, influencers, and hard workers with the same goals as we do. Financial freedom and opportunity to bless and give!
Are you looking for health and healthy finances? Dale and I are always praying and asking the Lord to bring us new people to run this race with. Maybe it's you!
The business plan in a nutshell, is love oils, love people and be generous. We teach you the rest and while you may be in the business FOR yourself, you are never in the business BY yourself.
The numbers below are averages, some will make more, some will make less, and it all depends on the factors as you reach that rank and how solid you hit it. The point is, you can do this and go as far as your heart desires. It is possible!
In what other business or educational institution, after 4 years of hard work, offers an you average of around a 6 figure income? Not many!
If this peaks your curiosity at all, then simply contact me and we can chat some more. :) First step is getting some oils in your house!
On June 30, 2018, we hit our December 2018 goal, 6 months earlier than planned, praise God!
We used to say we never wanted to go past the Diamond rank, because who are we to need more income than that?
We were so boxed in our limiting beliefs and small mindset!
The Lord has shown us amazing things between now and then. He had Dale and I in tears at leadership 2 years ago when something a speaker said, it rocked our world and changed EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!
"Many of you out there are saying, I don't ever need to go past platinum or diamond. I would never need that kind of income!"
We are all nodding like yeah exactly. Then he says.....
"I know that feels humble and all, right? Bur I need to ask you something, when has this EVER been about you?"
"Who are you to deny 5 families life changing, Gold rank income?"
We turned to each other with tears in our eyes, and it was in that moment we knew......
As far as the Father leads, we will go!
I am so excited to see what is in store, and so overwhelmed at the thought of endless possibilities!
What a blessing to have the Lord trust us with Blue Diamond leadership. I am in awe of His glory and the way He works things for those that love Him.
When my heart fills up and overflows emotion, I get the urge to write.....so I did! This time a letter to my daddy. He was the first person I wanted to tell that we reached Blue, but as you know, he isn't here anymore. He is with his Savior in paradise as of December 2018! I sure miss him, but I know he is having so much fun, so that helps.
Here is what I wrote:
Hi there Daddy,
I wanted to call you so bad tonight, to tell you some good news, but alas I cannot. So I guess this note will do.....
You have always been my biggest cheerleader, I appreciated that. You always showed interest, and cheered me on with encouragement and words of wisdom!
When you were in your hospice bed, and I was chatting away to fill the space (I wasn't even sure you always heard me) but when I told you that night in December, that we were 75% of the way to Blue Diamond, you shakily raised your hand to me.
At first, I thought you needed something, and then I realized....
You were high fiving me!
In the midst of your own difficult journey between life and death, still cheering me on. Tears filled my eyes, and that is when I knew, I WOULD hit Blue Diamond in 2018, and I'd do it for you!
So here we are, daddy, we DID IT!!!!!! We are Blue Diamond leaders with doTERRA. Thank you, Jesus!
I love you, dad and I miss you, every single day. Xoxo
Always your "punkin".....
God is so so faithful to allow us this life and I am deeply grateful. Not a day goes by that I don't breathe a prayer of thanksgiving to a Father who gave us beauty from ashes so long ago, and continues to fill our storehouses so full of blessings that we need to build new storehouses to hold it all.

Today, I want to talk to you about about the dangers of BUG REPELLENT!!!!!
Your skin is your largest organ, that means your body is DRINKING up everything you put on it! YIKES!
Have you ever read about the dangers of DEET and over the counter bug repellents?
Why DEET-Containing Repellents Are Better Off Avoided
About 30 percent of Americans use DEET every year, but you should know that this chemical – though generally effective in keeping away insects – can have deadly repercussions. From 1961 to 2002, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry reports eight deaths related to DEET exposure.
Three of these resulted from deliberate ingestion, but five of them occurred following DEET exposure to the skin in adults and children.3 Psychological effects have also been reported including altered mental state, auditory hallucinations, and severe agitation.
In children, the most frequently reported symptoms of DEET toxicity reported to poison control centers were lethargy, headaches, tremors, involuntary movements, seizures, and convulsions. Further, in a study of more than 140 National Park Service employees, 25 percent reported health effects they attributed to DEET, including:
Skin or mucous membrane irritation
Transient numb or burning lips
In addition, Duke University Medical Center pharmacologist Mohamed Abou-Donia spent 30 years researching the effects of pesticides. He discovered that prolonged exposure to DEET can impair cell function in parts of your brain -- demonstrated in the lab by death and behavioral changes in rats with frequent or prolonged DEET use. Other potential side effects DEET exposure include:
Muscle weakness and fatigue
Shortness of breath
Muscle and joint pain
You can read more here:
THROW that Deet AWAY and check out this homemade insect repellent we make. We use this on our kids, ourselves and even our dog. Safe, natural, smells amazing and we love it!!!!
HOMEMADE BUG SPRAY:
10 drops each Thyme and Geranium (anti-tick)
10 drops each Lavender and Melaleuca
15 drops Terrashield (doTERRA citronilla bug repellent oil)
15 each Cedarwood and Lemongrass
Add water to the top of a glass 4 ounce spray bottle. Shake and spray. Repeat often.
Dale had HUGE mosquitoes swarming and landing on him but NEVER biting when we used this spray. Amazing!
See the second bottle in the picture? DoTERRA makes a ready made Terrashield for your convenience. Grab and leave in your purse, baseball bag or stroller!
Terrashield comes in an OIL and in a ready to use SPRAY.
We use the oil on Sophie's collar for natural bug repelling, and we use it to make our own spray. You can also diffuse it on your back porch in a diffuser with cedarwood and lemongrass! Mmmm, smells good and works good!
Come on over to my Green Living Class page, I am so excited to teach you more!
My focus this month, is on how to GREEN UP YOUR LIFE, using doTERRA essential oils and products!
Today I want to share how we have greened up our DISHWASHER recently, by making our own dishwashing powder and liquid.
There is a safe, natural alternative to everything you are currently using!
I want to help you live better, choose better and feel better with doTERRA, you NEVER oil alone!
Dishwasher recipe number 1, is in powder form:
It uses Borax, Baking Powder, Salt and Essential Oils. You can use Citric Acid if you need more help with hard water.
NOTE: Fill the entire rinse compartment with white vinegar!!!
Curious about the safety of Borax? Check out this article:
I'll tell what I do know, it's a BETTER CHOICE than what is sold in the stores! Yikes!
Our dishes came out sparkling clean! Batch two came out a tiny bit gritty so I am doing less powder and adding a teaspoon of our On Guard concentrate to it.
People with hard water will need to play with ratios too. You can also try recipe 2 instead, coming up.
Let me introduce you to the, oh so amazing, doTERRA Concentrated Cleaner, which I do my WHOLE HOUSE with.

I have so many amazing, shocking and helpful things planned for you all of May on our Green Up Your Life Class page. Won't you please come join us?
Nothing feels as comforting and welcoming as a tidy, well-tended home.
But a clean home isn’t necessarily a healthy one!
The average American welcomes more than 1800 toxic chemicals into their home in the form of sweet smelling laundry soap to powerful cleaners, candles, personal care products and more....
Have you ever been curious about green living and creating daily healthy habits?
We have a safe counterpart to everything you are currently using! YAY!
Join our Green Living with Essential Oils FB class. It all starts May 1st and I'll be your teacher! 😁🌱 Come on over! I have daily posts, shocking facts and fun Ferguson Boomerang videos to share with you! :)
Read along class night is May 14th, 8pm CST, SAVE THE DATE, but we have tons to share before then, so click the class page link today!
As a leader with doTERRA, we get invited to the Orlando Leadership Retreat each year.
We stayed at a local hotel this time, instead of renting a condo.
Sweet Avery filled up her traditional "Love Box" with hugs and kisses so we wouldn't run out or be lonely while we were gone from them. PRECIOUS!
She also made sure we went from kid to kid and filled their hearts with extra hugs and kisses for when they missed us. <3
Even though we miss the kids and the comforts of the RV, it's always so fun to connect with our team leaders, and learn more how to lead strong with this great company called doTERRA!
I love learning about all the latest things doTERRA has been up to in their giving and growing. My favorite part about doT is their HUGE hearts and humanitarian efforts all over the world.
They are a billion dollar, debt free company with a heart to SERVE and give and help! LOVE this!
We pay the farmers we hire, fair wages, on time, no middle men gouging prices. We help drop wells, build schools and build and staff medical clinics and hospitals in rural areas with no help. We have an organization called Healing Hands Foundation that helps to pay for all these things as well as supporting other ministries like micro loans for small businesses, Days for Girls and Operation Underground Railroad to rescue and rehabilitate sex trafficked kids.
DoTERRA is also expanding its campus and adding a medical clinic using all the areas of care, chiropractic, nutritionalist, holistic and adding oils to it all! Health care is about to change.
In addition to this facility in Salt Lake City, UT, they are looking to open other clinics all across the USA! Pretty exciting!
We also got to work with Gallup on Strength Based Leadership and how to focus on what our leaders are GOOD at, as opposed to our weakness focused society. POWERFUL stuff!
We got to take the strength finders test, and here is what Dale and I got. I am anxious to utilize these tools with our team and our own growth, to use those God given giftings for HIS glory and for really big things in doTERRA!
It's not ALL learning, we get to have some fun too. There is always a THEMED PARTY night! Whoop whoop! We've done 80's, Super Hero, and now.....
Into the Deep Blue Sea
Get it? Like Deep Blue Oil. Pretty awesome!
No I am not bruised, that's makeup scales! I packed a little piece of potato sack so I could make the scaley look. Too bad I couldn't find another color, green and purple looks like a bruise, but OH WELL, still fun, right?!
Dale wouldn't dress up with me - party pooper! So we found him a Shark Week shirt and added a phrase to the back:
It's Shark Week Ya'll.
Thank God there is an oil for that!!!
It's called Clary calm and it TOTALLY works for the females in this house. Haha! :)
We had matching shirts, Mermaids and even a Sea Week Queen!
We were still hungry after, so we hit the streets to go find a place to eat. You'd have thought Orlando had never seen hungry sea creatures before! Haha :)
It got cool enough, Dale decided to go get the car and come pick us all up.
How many mer-creatures would fit inside good ol' Flexie?
We were about to find out!
On the last day of retreat, we could NOT find parking, just one spot remained by 2 mom mobiles that both parked crooked over their lines. I hopped out to go search out another spot.
Low and behold, I see Dale preparing to back INTO SAID TIGHT SPOT. What a nut!
It was so tight he had to crawl out the BACK HATCH......I was DYING laughing as was everyone else that drove by. Never a dull moment with this one I tell ya.
Sure do love doing life with him! <3
And just like that it was time to celebrate new leader ranks and head back home to utilize all we learned.

We are wrapping up our oil series today. Catch up by clicking the FALL in Love with oils category.
Did you learn a lot? Did you FALL in love with natural solutions to your health?
I hope you eyes were open to all the amazing possibilites!!!
So just to be sure everybody’s got it, let's review what we covered yesterday:
Becoming a Wholesale Member and participating in the Loyalty Rewards Program, is going to save you the MOST money! You cannot buy safe, natural, beyond organic products this affordably at the store. PLUS, this one comes to your home with paid back shipping too!
Friends DO NOT let friends pay retail! I became a wholesale member with an enrollment kit. The kits are bundled so that you are receiving your products below even the wholesale price. And did I mention your membership is included in the cost of the kit? It really is the best way to get started!
Dale and I save 25% with our doTERRA wholesale membership AND another 30% comes back to us in points that I get to go shopping with, for more amazing doTERRA for our home. That is an AMAZING 55% off of the products we use and love in our home that are healthy and safe for our family too!!!!
Did you see a kit you wanted yesterday? What are you waiting for? Lets get your kit picked out and I'll help you get your order in!
Did you know, in general people can not keep a secret? Especially when they are SUPER EXCITED about something!!!!
It’s totally true. People who experience and love essential oils are naturally inclined to share with others. For those who are interested in earning some part-time money, or even making REAL income, doTERRA is a great business opportunity.
Dale and I are Diamonds with doTERRA, and we have an AMAZING team of people all over the country who share the oils and get paid.
We know LOTS of men and women who are making consistent money each month. No inventory. No delivering products. No monthly quotas.
It's all about sharing the oils and helping others discover a better way. If you think this is something you’d be interested in learning more about leave a comment and let's chat more!
One last thing, before I go.
Do you dream of living a life you don’t need a vacation from?
Dale and I do doTERRA full time as our job, and we adore it. Dale was able to retire from his 14 year insurance job at age 34 because doTERRA completely changed our home in not only health, but healthy finances too.
Now, we share our passion for oils and natural health, and get to bless families along the way with healing products for their home, free oils, AND income that is completely life changing.
What a joy!
We are always looking for people who are passionate about helping others. Motivated people who seek extra income and want to change their lives.
Maybe its YOU we've been praying for?! :)
Use the contact form on this website to get a hold of me and we can chat more. I am so excited to visit with you! We can talk oils, we can talk opportunity, or we can talk BOTH. DoTERRA is for all people, whether you want to use the oils yourself, share them in passing with others, or intentionally build a pipeline of residual income in the process.
Thanks for joining me for our FALL in Love with doTERRA oils event. I'd love to answer any questions you have or visit more.
Prizes will be drawn soon, from commenters collected from each days blog!!!!!!!!!
We are on day 4 of 5 of our oil series....

So how do we know which oils to use for what?
It’s easy! We just look it up! Everything we’ve talked about in this series, I have read in a book or learned on our support pages simply by reading.
There are several reference books available. All are published by 3rd parties and contain excellent information to get you started with essential oils. They contain things from the latest research, science behind the oils, reflexology charts, recipes, and an alphabetical guide to health concerns and protocols. If you know your ABC’s and can read, YOU CAN USE ESSENTIAL OILS!
I’m all about getting the most value for your dollar and saving some money. You can buy your oils retail but WHY?!
DoTERRA gives away a FREE wholesale membership with an enrollment kit.
What is an enrollment kit?

This Natural Solutions kit is my BEST seller, because of all its amazing savings and perks! It comes with $100 in product credit to shop with AND everyones favorite diffuser, valued at almost $100 as well.
I can explain how it all works later, after we get it ordered for you.
You get a little bit of everything, on guard immune boosting and household products, the awesome vitamins you need for energized living, and some of the spa line!
Check out all the enrollment kits here and then let us know which one you have selected! We want to help you order so you can for sure get the best value, and end up in our Dorothy family!
Which one do you want the MOST!?
There is a way that you can buy your doTERRA products and save even MORE money. It’s called our Loyalty Rewards Program. It's basically like frequent flyer miles for oil shoppers, the more you shop, the more you save.
You earn points off your monthly purchases that you can spend like dollars on more items, as well as getting FREE products and paid back shipping costs.
Sign up for the LRP and you can save up to 30% MORE on your regular purchases. Yup, 25% off with wholesale membership and an extra 30% savings because of loyalty rewards points.

Welcome back! Part 3 of FALL into love with oils, and preparation for the under the weather season, just around the corner. Breathe easy, we have an oil for ANYTHING life throws your way!
Catch up here:
This Breathe stick is a must have for the upcoming fall/winter weather. All natural ingredients to help with upper respiratory problems.
Eucalyptus: With a light, airy scent, Eucalyptus essential oil has been known to promote feelings of clear breathing and relaxation.
Peppermint: A member of the mint family, Peppermint oil can help promote clear breathing and healthy respiratory function.
Melaleuca: Among many benefits, Melaleuca oil can help protect against environmental and seasonal threats and support healthy immune system function.
Lemon: Not only does Lemon essential oil possess a clean, fresh scent, but it is also known to support healthy respiratory function.
Cardamom: A warm, spicy essential oil, Cardamom oil promotes clear breathing and respiratory health, making it an important part of the doTERRA Breathe blend.
Smells amazing and works amazing! Use for chest tightness, congestion, before a work out to improve performance. We also have a breathe respiratory drop!
Needing more support? Check out this Sinus Steamer.
Give our Steam Cup a try, you will be amazed how it opens chest and stuffy nasal passages. It is also great for a nagging cough.
Close your eyes, its mentholy! 😊 I also like to replace oregano with breathe oil in the above recipe, unless it’s a really deep chest cough, then you want that powerhouse oil in there.
This works INSTANTLY!
Speaking of Oregano, when we are down, I also apply oregano and on guard to our feet bottoms often for their amazing properties!
You can make up a roller of the following oils and kick some COOTIES before they make your family feel BAD! Apply often to feet bottoms and feel better quickly.
Do you all do fall sports at your house? Or suffer from aches and pains chronically?
This is definitely a doTERRA favorite......
Sometimes, fall can bring some extra STRESS with the holidays and work stresses......UGH!
Do not worry, we have an oil for that!
Fall means back to school, earlier bedtimes and extra rest to promote good immunity! If you aren’t sleeping, you are healing, restoring or re-builiding your body.
My go to for our 4 children is balance, serenity and serenity softgels. They fall asleep quicker, and they get better rest! I have a griner, a yeller, a thrasher and a buzzer, they all can tell a difference when we run out of serenity softgels. Mommy can tell who hasn’t taken their’s when she tucks them in.
I haven’t ever slept as good as I do with serenity and balance in my diffuser and serenity softgels internally!
Depriving your body of sleep has been associated with many health risks and places a tremendous burden on virtually every organ system in your body! The average American does NOT get enough sleep!
Lack of adequate sleep affects our ability to lose or maintain a healthy weight; influences how we feel, learn, and behave; and negatively impacts our cardiovascular health and overall wellness. The less sleep you get, the less opportunity you give your body to heal and prepare itself for the following day, reducing overall quality of life.
In other words, SLEEP IS IMPORTANT!!!!! :)
Essential oils like Lavender and Bergamot are rich in linalool and linalyl acetate, compounds that have well-known relaxing properties. These oils can be diffused aromatically in the bedroom to create a calming and peaceful environment, perfect for getting a good night’s sleep. They can also be used topically and taken internally to calm the nervous system, promote relaxation, and lead to a restful sleep.
Try placing two to four drops of Lavender or Bergamot essential oil in a warm, herbal tea (Chamomile, Lemongrass, etc.), or another favorite uncaffeinated beverage about 30 minutes before going to bed, or add two to four drops of Lavender into an empty capsule and swallow about 30 minutes before bed.
Essential Oils for Sleep and Relaxation:
•Serenity Calming Blend
Balance and serenity can be found here, where you can read more about the amazing oils they contain.
Fall can also bring SPIDERS and other creepy crawlies into your home. EWWWWW!!!!!
We have an oil for that too!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
Do you have mice?
Add peppermint oil to cotton balls and throw it in your garage, basement and attic spaces. Works like a charm! We use this under the RV all the time. Smells awesome! And no poison dangerous for my kids and dogs.
Are you learning a ton? FALLing in love with oils? I know I sure have. They have changed our home for good in so many ways!
Leave a comment and share this post to FB and I'll select some winners to receive a sample of balance and serenity oil and serenity pills for a good nights rest.
Stay tuned for more tomorrow! :)
When we left off yesterday, we were discussing On Guard, my FAVORITE oil for the upcoming under the weather season.
Did you know you can enjoy On Guard Oil internally too? Yup! Tastes amazing!
Check out the immune boosting flavors of fall in this delicious On Guard Pumpkin Smoothie
Looking for other ways to boost your immunity and support your body this fall? Today I have so much more to share about other great items to have on hand.
Probiotics are an excellent way! Because over 80% of our immune system is located in our digestive system, gut health should be the major focal point of a healthy immune system.
A high-quality probiotic can help with:
- digestion and absorption
- producing vitamins, absorbing minerals and eliminating toxins
- keeping the "bad" bacteria numbers un control
- seasonal distress
- providing important support for the immune system
Along with healthy eating, proper sleep and a healthy mindset, you can really enjoy all the fall has to offer!
Did you know doTERRA probiotics contain 5 BILLION cfu’s of live bacteria? The ones at the store have about 3,000, thats a big difference!
Did you know doTERRA Probioitcs are dual encapsulated with a prebiotic that opens in your tummy, allowing the probiotic to “survive” the tummy acids and do its work deep in your intestines?
Yup, and our kids Probiotic Jr is encapsulated as well with a prebiotic too. GENIUS!
Do you suffer from seasonal distress in Fall AND Spring? We have oils for those itchy, sneeszy, watery problems!
Do you experience these seasonal discomforts in the fall?
When they start, I know it's time to grab my lemon, lavender and peppermint essential oils. Looking back, I don't know how I did without them. I hated the side effects of over the counter options, not to mention the cost. Now I get relief with just pennies a drop!
You can enjoy your oils aromatically too, all natural scents, no fragrance and no chemicals.
Forget wax melts and candles that are harmful top your family, use oils and water in your diffuser to make your house smell AWESOME 8 hours at a time. My aromalite diffuser is going 24x7. I love that I can pick a smell and craft a recipe with just a few oils and have something new.
Make the inside of your home smell like all things warm and amazing with dōTERRA essential oils, but also boost immune systems, eliminate airborne pathogens and germs, all while making your house smell GOOD!!!! Safe, pure, natural, non-toxic and with health and wellness benefits! 😊
And more diffuser recipes then you can even imagine for you to try.....
Don’t have a diffuser yet? You should get one! They come free with all the good enrollment kits!
For now, bring the essence of Fall into your home with this easy, DIY potpourri!
Looking for gift giving ideas for your fall party or gatherings? How about a festive sugar scrub? Or room spray? Easy to make and pennies on the dollar!
Comment and share this post on FB and be entered to win a 2 ounce sample of your choice of the above fall room sprays!
Tomorrow we dig deeper into sniffles and sneezes, aches and pains and more......
Pumpkins, Apple Cider, Leaves and Cheer, uh oh "under the weather" season is here!
It's FALL! Oh how I love fall. Boots and sweaters, apple and pumpkin spice everything, crisp air and cooler temps!
Sadly, with that ushers in lowered immune systems and more days under the weather!
Over the next few days, I am going to talk about some of the ways our family uses oils during the fall and winter to stay healthy. We haven't had to go to the doctor for an UNwell visit in 3 years now, thanks to the powerhouse essential oils that now fill my bathroom cabinet.
I want to help you be prepared for whatever life throws your way!
Immune Boosting Smells GOOD!!!!!
Meet On Guard.
Think Fall. In a bottle.
Oh my lanta does it smell awesome! :) Oranges, clove and cinnamon. Non-toxic with health benefits.
We use this DAILY, all throughout the "feeling under the weather" season with amazing results!!!!!
Apply to pulse points on the way out the door, sip 2 drops in a mug of hot water with raw honey, or diffuse in your home to make it smell like fall AND boost immunity.
Support a strong healthy immune system this fall with doTERRA's On Guard.
•supports healthy immune function
•protects against environmental threats
•purifies the skin while promoting healthy circulation
•energizing and uplifting aroma
I will not be without this POWERHOUSE oil in our home! Its a fav! I love how it smells, how it tastes, how it WORKS.
Need an extra big pick me up for the immune system?! Check out this bad boy, On Guard +! This soft gel is PACKED with on guard and extra ninja fighters.
doTERRA On Guard+
Providing an easy way to enjoy the benefits of the doTERRA On Guard blend, doTERRA On Guard+ Softgels are full of essential oils known for strengthening and maintaining the immune system, particularly when environmental threats are high. Each doTERRA On Guard+ Softgel is encapsulated in a vegetarian capsule, and offers all of the immune-supporting benefits that doTERRA On Guard oils like Melissa, Oregano, and Black Pepper have to offer.
Wild Orange: One major benefit of Wild Orange oil is that it can help protect the body against seasonal threats—making it the perfect addition to the doTERRA On Guard blend.*
Clove: Clove essential oil can be used to support a healthy immune system.*
Black Pepper: To help support healthy circulation, doTERRA uses Black Pepper oil in the doTERRA On Guard formula.*
Cinnamon: A key ingredient in the doTERRA On Guard Blend, Cinnamon oil is known to promote healthy immune function.*
Eucalyptus: The cleansing, purifying nature of Eucalyptus oil makes it a helpful addition to doTERRA On Guard+ Softgels.*
Oregano: Helpful for maintaining a healthy immune system, Oregano oil plays a major role in the doTERRA On Guard Protective Blend formula.*
Rosemary: Also used in doTERRA On Guard, Rosemary oil may help support the digestive system.*
Melissa: Many people use Melissa oil to help support a healthy immune system.

Another great way I keep our family healthy is to wipe down surfaces.....
Good bye germs, hello amazing smelling clean house!
I use On Guard Cleaner Concentrate in a spray bottle to surfaces like countertops, toilets, sink faucets, door knobs, remotes and the like around our home. We can stay germ free using NATURAL products that smell amazing like orange, clove and cinnamon!
The doTERRA On Guard cleaning products are a highly effective way to clean surfaces while preventing exposure to toxins. I also suggest using Lemon, Grapefruit, Wild Orange, Purify Cleansing Blend, or the doTERRA On Guard Protective Blend. I use this concentrate for dish soap and toilet bowel cleaner too!
Look how many bottles of cleaner, one little concentrate can make! This is going to save you so much money!
The real key to a healthy home is good HAND WASHING! I make my kids go wash the second we come in the door from church or the store.
I love that we no longer have to use the nasty antibacterial soaps, that are harsh and hand drying, that strip your body of all the natural bacteria needed to live. Its dangerous for our earth too, as it washes into waterways and upsets the delicate balance in nature.
In fact, did you know that recently the FDA banned antibacterial soaps? Yup. They finally are seeing how harmful it really is. Stores have until April to get it off their shelves.
DoTERRA foaming hand soap is not antibacterial, so it just goes after the bad bacteria, while leaving the good behind to help you live healthy! We love it so much, Dale asks if we can pack it in my purse when we leave for the day so we don't have to use the nasty public restroom soaps.
Did you know that regular alcohol based sanitizers strip your hands of their natural oils, making them prone to dry and crack? Also that killing 99.99% of bacteria isn't a great thing, as listed above?
You can choose better and make your OWN or buy the brand NEW doTERRA On Guard ready made one! It smells so good, people are ALWAYS asking me what I have in my bottle.
Can't wait to continue our series with you, I want you ready for anything life throws your way this fall and winter......
Comment AND share this post on FB for a chance to win an on guard sanitizing mist of your very own!
I want to help you prepare for FALL, check out this video!!! Great things to come next week! :)
Probably my favorite thing about doTERRA, is their Humanitarian efforts all over the world through not only the Healing Hands Foundation, but through the ministries they support like Days for Girls and Operation Underground Railroad.
"We want to create a culture of giving. We want to give a hand UP, not just a hand OUT." David Cook
doTERRA is a billion dollar, debt free company with a heart to GIVE back to the hurting world around them. They lead by example with debt free living from the company to the owners themselves.
Each year we get to hear at convention, how many lives were touched, how many dollars were donated, and what new projects doTERRA is taking on....
From new hospitals with doctors wages being paid for a year so people have care closer than a 3 day trip, to brand new school facilities with dorms, in some of the poorest nations in the world.
This is in addition to the incredible care we give the farmers, who grow the crops we use for oils, all over the world.
Last year, we had an OUR (operation underground railroad) do a whole segment of convention. He talked passionately about his work. They help free sex trafficked children from a life of slavery all around the world, and even here, in the United States.
He looked around our convention, housing 30,000 oilers and said, if you take this times TWELVE, thats the number of people in the United States being trafficked for sex today. Chills.
Check out this video, grab a kleenex, you'll need it. Serious.
doTERRA partners with OUR, not only by our beautiful HOPE oil, which 100% of proceeds go to this operation, but also, a special version of the oil itself is handed out to kids that are at risk of falling prey to this life.
7,000 units of this special oil have already been distributed.
We are helping OUR mobilize forensic units for quicker and swifter prosecution, and now canine units to sniff out media devices containing images and videos. The dogs are 100% successful in their findings 100% of the time, and this is after officers have swept the home and called it clean of any more devices containing child pornography. They can smell a tiny little sd card, tucked into a floor board or curtain rod!!!!
DoTerra has 2 dogs (one named Cinnamon Bark) being trained as we speak. We got to see one of these dogs, URL, (pronounced Earl) at work on stage. He sniffed those SD cards right out of the bags lining the stage!!!
That's not all, doTERRA helps with the rehabilitation process of these kids once they are rescued. Partnering with the Rapha House, art therapy centers and continued support as they heal and re enter society.
doTERRA has also committed to a "Protection" program, educating kids what to watch for, as victims are often tricked and lied to, before they are stolen for sex trafficking purposes.
Another ministry we got an update from, was Days for Girls! Watch this short video!
Did you know in some countries, they still believe that a menstrating woman is a threat to the village? Bad luck? A curse? Did you know woman are forced to be isolated in sheds out with lifestock during their "mooncycle"? That they aren't allowed to touch the water, because its believed the river will dry up?
DoTERRA not only helps fund the making of these hygiene kits, but works to help Days for Girls educate and empower woman and villages on the beauty of becoming a woman.
Without menstration, there would be no MEN, they say! :)
You can read more about this great ministry here.
doTERRA put together an opportunity at convention to help break the WORLD RECORD for most hygiene kits assembled in an hour. The current record was just over 1,002 kits assembled in one hour. The goal was to assemble 5,000 in that hour!!
The representative from Guinness Book of World Records stood on stage and said,
"DoTERRA had high hopes to beat the world record, but sadly, you all ran out of materials at 36 minutes, and could not complete the full hour of assembly.
HOWEVER, in 36 minutes , you managed to assemble 5,110 kits, indeed breaking the world record!!!"
The crowd went WILD, so stinking cool!
Displayed at convention; all the hygiene kits that were packed! Isn't it BEAUTIFUL!?
doTERRA's Healing Hands foundation is something we donate to monthly, in our shopping cart. Its the main doTERRA ministry.
The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation seeks to bring healing and hope to the world, for lives free of disease and poverty, and to ultimately empower impoverished communities with the tools needed to become self-reliant.
They also help with disaster relief in times of tragedy like the Nepal earthquake, or more recently, with donations to Texas and Florida for hurricane victims.
Still have your kleenex out? You'll need it for this one too.
What I love about this whole thing, is not only am I making a change in my home with health and healthy finances because of doTERRA, but every month that I buy safe natural doTERRA for my family, my dollar is bringing hope and change to the hurting world around me.
It's amazing to be a part of something SO much bigger than myself, or than my mind can even grasp.
Are you as impressed with this humanitarian company as I am? Join arms with us, let's change the world together, one drop of oil at a time!
