Why Does Natural Skin Care Matter?
It can be overwhelming to know where to start to replace your toxic skin care products! But it doesn't have to be!
Let me guide you with a few simple steps.
1- Go to EWG- see how toxic your current products are
2- doTERRA has a complete selection of: skin care, hair care and body products
3- DIYer's- make your own easy, simple hair conditioner, shave gel, face scrub
Rosemary Cedarwood Hair Conditioner
Fill an 8 oz glass pump bottle 3/4 of the way with apple cider vinegar. Add 5 drops of Rosemary and 5 drops of Cedarwood essential oils. Fill remaining bottle with water.
To use: Pump conditioner on hair after shampooing and leave in for 1-2 minutes and then rinse.
Blue Tansy Facial Scrub
In a small container mix 1/2 cup of almond meal and 1/2 cup of oat flour. Add 7 drops of Blue Tansy essential oil (or any oil of your choice for skin, although Blue Tansy smells the best and is my favorite). Massage well to incorporate oil into flours.
To use: Use approximately 2 tsp of scrub and add a small amount of water to form a paste the consistency of baby cereal. Rub on face to exfoliate for a minute and then rinse well.
Lavender Shave Gel
In a mixing bowl, combine 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1/4 of aloe vera gel and 6 drops of Lavender essential oil. Whisk until uniformly combined. Using a funnel, pour into 4 oz glass pump bottle.
Pondering the question today: "What would my life be like with out doTERRA?" I think it's a similar question to, "What would life be like without my cell phone?" Have you ever thought about this question?
Truly, I hate to even think about it! Essential oils are what make me feel vibrant, energetic and healthy. And when I feel better, I can show up better! So with essential oils, I can be a better friend, a better sister, a better aunt, a better support and a better educator!
These are a few of the things I love about essential oils:
Are you in a place where you are wanting better, more vibrant health? It can confusing to know where to start. With a kit of basic oils, a essential oil reference book, and me as your guide, you can be on your way to less doctor's visits, more energy and being a better version of you!
STOMACH ACID- TOO MUCH OR TOO LITTLE?
We all know someone, perhaps ourselves, who struggle with acid burning and discomfort. The Western approach to this problem is thinking we have too much stomach acid. What does stomach acid really do for you and how do you know if you have too much?
Let me walk you through the digestive process and how stomach acid is involved:
1- Digestion starts in your mouth:
2- HCL is released in the stomach:
3- Food is released into the intestines (through the pyloric valve):
If you are struggling with difficulty swallowing, chronic chest pain, burning in your throat, difficulty digesting protein, poor immunity or digestive discomfort, these are all signs of low stomach acid.
What happens if you have low stomach acid?
What do anti-acids do?
What can increase stomach acid and ease burning?
Our lives are too precious not to be nurtured! My vision is to inspire you to greater health and wellness! Stop by often!
