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! :)
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.
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.
With back to school and cold and flu season coming, the time to get essential oils in your home is NOW!

Today, I want to talk to you about about the dangers of traditional 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 version we make. We use this on our kids, ourselves and even our dog. Safe, natural, smells amazing and we love it!!!!
HOMEMADE BUG BE GONE:
10 drops each Thyme & Geranium
10 drops each Lavender and Melaleuca
15 drops Terrashield
15 each Cedarwood and Lemongrass
10 Lemon Eucalyptus (so amazing! 90% more effective then DEET!)
Add distilled water to the top of a glass 4 ounce spray bottle. Shake and spray. Repeat often.
Dale had HUGE blood sucking pests swarming and landing on him, but NEVER biting when we used this spray. Amazing!
You can also diffuse it on your back porch in a diffuser with cedarwood and lemon eucalyptus! 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.
Seriously, toilet, dishes, shower, floor, windows, mirrors, all of it. Safe and natural, On Guard oil in a soap base!
This powerful essential oil blend is combined with plant-based derivatives that provide a non-toxic and biodegradable way to clean and eliminate odors, so it is safe for loved ones as well as the environment. The multi-purpose capabilities of doTERRA On Guard Cleaner Concentrate make it perfect to expertly clean hard surfaces in the kitchen, bathroom, or any room, leaving behind a clean and invigorating scent.
ONE bottle can make 16 bottles of cleaner. Pennies on the dollar!!!
Green cleaning saves you some GREEN! And better yet, you won't choke and cough as you clean your bathroom!!!!
Dishwasher Recipe 2:
1. 1Tablespoon of baking soda + 1/2 teaspoon On Guard Cleaner Concentrate in the detergent compartment.
2. Fill the jet dry compartment with white vinegar.
You'll have sparkling clean dishes in a safe, natural way.
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.
What are oils?
How do they work?

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!!!!!!!!!

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.

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? Do you need relief from minor aches and pains?
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!

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.

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.*

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!
One of the exciting things about Convention is that they launch NEW products every year! This year was exceptionally amazing!
Let's talk about each oil and what they offer your family:
First up, Siberian Fir! This is a great day starter when paired with Frankincense oil.
Siberian Fir can positively affect many body systems. It's recommended for topical, aromatic and internal use! WOW. (usually we don't take fir oils internally!!) THIS ONE YOU CAN.
Aroma: Evoke feelings of relaxation and rest, inhale to soothe dry airways ( this is powerful!)
Topical: Apply to sooth skin irritations (rash, overstressed tissues, wound, bites), apply to calm overactive tissues and ease discomfort
Internal: Use 1-3 drops in a capsule to support body systems (fyi it it has been used in a lot of different foods, as a flavoring agent)
Application: Combine with a citrus oil for surface cleansing, use in combination with rosemary, eucalyptus, cypress for lime for clarifying aroma and respiratory, blend with tree, wood or floral oils to eliminate blemishes and healthy skin.
Blue Tansy is up next. This oil comes out naturally a beautiful BLUE! And yes, it can temporarily make you a bit blue on your skin. Haha, just use a carrier oil and you will be fine. It makes your skin like silk!
Blue Tansy comes from wild crafted sources but it is SUSTAINABLE and the quality is there. Blue Tansy is cultivated different than other flowers. 5 million seedlings will be planted every single year and then cultivated in late fall! dōTERRA is unceasing to protect this plant and benefits.
Blue Tansy brings soothing relief, skin support!
Aroma: Diffuse it to uplift the mood and create a positive environment (don't under estimate this power)
Topical: Apply topically to soothe skin irritations, apply locally to calm overactive tissue and ease discomfort. (use on bottom of the feet) Great beauty oil!!!!! Can use for cracked irritated skin and function properly.
Internal: NOT for internal use!
Application: Use in combo with lemongrasss, mark, cinnamon for a warming and soothing tissue application after strenuous activity. Combine with cedarwood, frank, or geranium for skin clarification. Consider diluting it by adding 1-2 drops of your lotion or moisturizer.
Have you ever heard of NEROLI!? This one is from Egypt! (the trees have been untouched since 642AD!) WOW!!!!
We now have Neroli oil from the beautiful flower of the bitter orange oil. Did you know our spikenard oil comes from its leaves? Cool right?!
There's beautiful history of neroli for fertility, calming, aphrodisiac.
*Apply to reduce stress and anxious feelings.. use over heart, breathe it in
*Supports healthy intestinal inflammatory response
*When applied to a wound the wound will heal faster
*Late stages of pregnancy on bottoms of feet, ankles, for wonderful relief
*Improves hormone concentrations
*Encourages feelings of intimacy
*Cellular health optimization, helps regulate healthy cell production, regulates mTOR, an important regulator of cell death
Do plants have personalities?
Yes! Neroli invites you to let go and release!!!!!
Next new oil is the Jasmine TOUCH!
This rare oil hasn't been available before because it takes 21,000 petals for 5ml bottle, and 1.5 days of work! By putting it in a roller, we are able to use FCO and help this pricey oil be more affordable and available to everyone. It is such a delicate flower the farmers have to pick it at night before the sun hits the flower!
*Jasmine helps you to feel liberated- Free! Great heart oil.
*Helps maintain healthy blood pressure levels, over pulse points
*Helps with labor and menstrual cycles for relaxation
*Great for back massages, inhale it...
*Wonderful central nervous system support
*You can use jasmine internally (on the roof of the mouth) for mood boost
So excited to also introduce a new permanent product from Bulgaria, ROSE touch!!
Rose is considered the "Queen of Oils"! It takes 8000 roses or 242,000 petals for 5ml of rose essential oil.
unique chemistry with staying power...when you put rose on your skin you smell it all day long, has a wax like quality (alkanes)
*Rose is emotionally uplifting
*Helps balance moisture levels in the skin
*Reduces the appearance of skin imperfections
*Supports immune response
*You feel radiant, connected, intimate...
*The shape of the rose looks like it is giving the heart a hug, this is a great way to remember the emotional support that comes from the rose oil.
*The science behind both neroli and rose shows you will feel more happy and contentment after childbirth, it helps the body to naturally release the desire for pain medication.
*Apply rose oil morning noon and night to promote healthy brain activity and boosts immune system.
Emily Wright, one of the founders, shared a story about her daughter's concerning skin condition that could even be life threatening that she caught from a bouncy house at a party. She was using on guard soft gels and other oils but wasn't seeing the results she wanted quick enough. The doctor gave her a protocol too, but it would have taken her body 9 yrs to recover from this, yikes!
She called Dr. Hill, he said, remember what scientist Nicole Parish found in her research about rose and its power to heal...bingo!
She started using melaleuca touch and rose touch and kept her daughter on the oh so powerful on guard soft gels. Her skin was clear in 1 week!!! ONE WEEK!!!
And there were other kids who had this too and all of them had the SAME RESULT of healing! (She did not say what the condition was due to compliance but you can guess..starts with an M and is a Really Scary Attack to her body).
Rose, Jasmine, and Neroli all so soothing and smell so so amazing!!!!
We also now have a really great set of oils for YOGA lovers! Also great for anyone needing some emotional support to get through the day!
And the one you have all been waiting for, a cannabanoid oil called Copaiba!!!! (Co Pie Bah) This has all the benefits of cannabis oil without any of the negative (or illegal) side effects!
Everyone is curious about cannabinoid oil. Everyone needs add this to their daily regimen!!!!!! I am happy to report my dad had immediate and lasting relief from this oil as soon as we gave it to him. He started sleeping deeper, his head discomfort of all summer went away, as did the band of discomfort along his lower back. Two drops under the tongue and applied to wherever he hurt did the trick! He could tell when it kicked in and wore off. WOWOWOWOWOW!!!!!!
I am not sure how to explain all this, so I copied and pasted from a FB post about this great new oil:
There are 3 different types of cannabinoid oil: 1) CBD-canna-bi-diol this is what everyone "thinks" they want. This is your hemp oil. 2) THC - well...we all know what this is--this is what gives you the high!! 3) BCP- Beta-caro-phyllene. This is Copaiba.
There are two different pathways that this class of oil works on. The first path is to work on the CB1 receptors. CB1 receptors are found in our brain and central nervous system.
The second path (The one you want) works on the CB2 receptors that target the endocrine and immune system. CB2 receptors are found primarily on the white blood cells.
*CBD has very limited absorption and does not act directly on the CB receptor sights at all. So what's the point, right?
*THC- reacts on both CB1 and CB2 receptors. However, as we all know it is illegal. It also give us that instant high with short acting effects.
*BPC- Doterra's Copaiba oil is huge for our health. BCP reacts on the CB2 receptor sites. This oil is great for skin, heart health, mood and feelings of anxiousness, eye health, inflammation, discomfort, auto immune disorders, protects the liver, and is great for overgrowth of bacteria, a natural diuretic, eliminates skin blemishes, supports healthy blood pressure, and is awesome for respiratory support. Do you get the point? We all need this oil daily.
Doterra also uses 4 different species of the copaifera plant to make up their Copaiba oil giving us the most benefit. A real power house. So exciting!!
On to natural hand sanitizing and hand washing!!! We use On Guard for all things CLEAN at our house!
Foaming hand wash for hand washing and used to make On Guard sanitizer for on the go hand cleaning, but now.......
Truth. And antibacterial soaps are NOT the answer!!!
On Guard Hand sanitizer is a great fight against Germs!!!!
*On average people touch their face 18x a hour.
*1 in 3 people do not wash their hands after using public toilets. EWWW!
*Children miss 164 million school days because of sickness that could be prevented.
*4 of 5 people do not wash their hands after handling money (MONEY IS SO NASTY)

You know its been a good week when you sit down to blog it, and the words don't even know how to come out......
We have been with doTERRA 3 years, and all 3 years, we have attended their convention in Salt Lake City with our team. First 13 team members, then 48 and this year 98!
What I love most about convention, is getting to hear from the farmers, how doTERRA has changed their lives, as well as the many ministries that take the stage, with thanksgiving to a company who loves to give abundantly and generously.
Did you know doTERRA is a billion dollar debt free company with a huge humanitarian heart? THEY ARE! Its one of my favorite things about them. I'll talk more about that another day!
So my dad came to live with the kids while we were gone. He said they did GREAT! They all had fun! Felt good to know they were in good hands as we left for our 2 day journey to SLC!
DoTERRA's convention is the single largest event ever hosted in Salt Lake, with 30,000 people decending upon the city for 5 or so days. With all the oilers there, it sure SMELLS good too!
Every hotel, every street, every restaurant seems to be teeming with oil lovers. Pretty awesome!
The RV was SO quiet on the way down, I kept turning around to check on the kids. SILENCE> woah! We stopped and shopped in Colorado at this HUGE furniture store and found some deals on a black leather ottoman, 2 white night stands and a couple red pillows for the movie theatre room. I'll show you those items later when I blog the apartment! Dale gave me a ride out to the RV on a big rolling cart up on the ottoman like a queen.
We ate out at this amazing little restaurant with grass fed, no antibiotic beef, fresh made frozen yogurt and hand cut fries. HOLY COW! Its called Good Times, have any of you eaten there? When we read their mission board about quality food, we were afraid the burgers would be like $10 bucks, but not at all. $5!
The frozen Oregon Blackberry frozen yogurt still lives in my dreams, I must go back! :)
After 2 long days of traveling, we arrived in Salt Lake!
Time to gear up for one BIG exhausting amazing event! Up early and to bed late, hearts and brains packed to the brim with new knowledge and excitement!
But first, a dinner with our favorite presidential diamonds.....at a great place called Ruth's Chris Steak house. YUMMO! The steaks came out sizzling in a plate of brown butter, and the cheesecakes they brought out for us to share at the end, ended up being one per person, like you got the WHOLE thing! Oh and was it good. We loved seeing all our doT peeps again!
Wednesday started off with registration, swag store shopping and GALA. A formal dinner and diamond recognition night. This is the one we got to walk the purple carpet in last year, and this year got to cheer on our friends and uplines, Brian and Amanda too. Next year, there will be some Team Dorothy walking that carpet too! So excited for my girls!
Since we are team Dorothy, there is a lot of red shoes happening this week. Not always at Gala but I have tried every year to do so. Now, if I ever wear a pink dress, it ain't happening! ;)
First day of session was NEW PRODUCTS! And boy was it exciting! I think I'll take a whole nother day and just cover those, ok?
We also got some exciting updates, like that doTERRA is adding 200,000 sq ft to their manufacturing center, and broke ground on a 40,000 sq ft medical center. They don't believe in debt, so all this will be paid for as they go. There will be 5 doctors to begin with, all using integrative medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic care and of course, ESSENTIAL OILS!
DoTERRA wants to revolutionize health care! They are starting NOW.
Dr Hill, with tears in his eyes, says "We MUST change health care - we WILL change health care." Yes, yes we will. Its beyond time.
We got to hear from several scientists, doctors and nurses. DoTERRA is making waves in the medical world because of the purity standards of their incredible oils. Many medical journals to come!
There are so many hospitals excited to start using doTERRA essential oils in house. Diffusers in every nurses station, a doctor whose first 3 questions are: How are you eating? How are you sleeping? What essential oils are you using?
Major Hospitals are committed to leading the innovation and putting OILS to use! Exciting times! They want to see oils in the medical workplace! They want us to be reimbursed by our insurance providers for proven lowered claims from oil useage! She wants the hospital to smell like citrus, not "whatever". Haha! :)
There has been an 84% increase in Rx useage since 2003. AND a 49% increase in out of pocket expenses! It is clear to say that health care is BROKEN. We treat symptoms by masking and bandaiding, or cutting and bombing the problem out. Dr Riggs spoke and told us that healtcare spending is at $9,541 USD per capita. "We spend the MOST and are the LEAST healthy IN THE WORLD!"
What I love about oils is first of all, they were created by my Creator, who made my body to self heal with the right tools. Tools He provided in nature!
DoTERRA's health insurance company made note of how LOW their costs were, because more oilers means fewer times of feeling under the weather and fewer doctors visits. We find that to be so true! Our family of 6 hasn't had to go in for a sick visit in 3 years now! Everything we get, I have an oil I can use!
We learned about the power of On Guard from a microbiologst and a nurse who says a publication and 1 year peer review is about done, so that she can share her findings of On Guard inhibiting the replication of micro organisms. In laymans terms, it helped germs from growing back on surfaces for seven full days!
The days are full of learning and the nights are full of FUN! Now that our team is bigger, we spent time team hopping from party to party, dinner event to dinner event.
OH! And if you see goofy pics of us, we had a Dorothy scavenger hunt and they got points for completing silly tasks!!!!
Friday night is traditionally our uplines Black and White Party! With a pop of color for each team there. We, of course, picked red! :) Dorothy red!!!!!
Dorothy B, W & Red Slideshow
Our brains were filled each day from 9 to 4 with AMAZING information about health care, oils, new products and science. Our hearts will filled with all the amazing things doTERRA is doing world wide with amazing foundations and ministries! More on that another day!!!!!
