    More on My Beloved Oils

    I absolutely love essential oils. I have used many different brands, from ordering them from soap making companies to buying them at Wholefoods, GNC, and Vitamin World.

    I was looking for oils that are guaranteed to be pure and therapeutic grade, to insure I am getting the best results from them. 

    That is why I decided on DoTerra !

    I ordered the Physicians Kit to start with because this is where my interest lies, now that FLU season is upon us! 

    Last year my daughter missed 11 days of school during winter, because of sickness going around school.  This year we are going to try to NOT do that.  SO I have been rubbing the bottoms of  her little feet with the: 

    On Guard®
    Protective Blend

    On Guard is dōTERRA®'s unique, proprietary blend formulated to support healthy immune function. Wild orange essential oil, combined with clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary offer a fragrant, natural and effective alternative to synthetic options for immune support. On Guard, with its unique aroma, is one of our most versatile blends. It is also safe to use on counter tops, as a non-toxic way to cleanse surfaces, or to purify the atmosphere by diffusing. For aromatic, topical, or dietary use.

    So far so good for this school year! There have been several Children out with the YUCKS , but so far my daughter is not one of them! 

    I'm also using this blend, being diabetic, virus', and sickness tend to hit me much harder than they did before I was diabetic! 

    I will keep you posted on how it goes for us this winter!

    Good Morning !

    Day two of my coconut oil in the coffee.....
    so far so good! Only one side note:  Coconut oil may make you have to go to the bathroom, so be sure you will be within reach of a toilet ! 

    Another thing I am doing to help control the cravings that my blood sugar causes!
    My body demands, yes I said demands food. I do not like it, I have never liked it.  I get this gnawing feeling now that I am on so much insulin..... I mean it is horrible, gnawing WAKE you up in the middle of the night kind of hunger pains.....

    Well I can't very well get up and eat in the middle of the night,  my body NEEDS that tine of fasting whether it thinks so or not!

    So the next thing I'm trying.....

    { You will have to scroll down to the 14th product & that will be the Slim & Sassy Blend }

    If you know me at all, you know I signed up to get the wholesale price... which means of course I can now sell it to you also!  BUT honestly I'm not PUSHING it on my friends & family! I will share with you my experience with these oils, and if you think you are interested I would appreciate you buying from my website!
    Shameless plug here:

    Just click that link if you want to check out all the awesome products DoTerra Offers!

    Okay so about the Slim & Sassy Blend EO

    You can put it in water ( I did not love the taste in water) However I will be trying it in some carbonated water with a little stevia, to see if Ilike it that way. 

    Anyway, I woke up with that gnawing hunger at 5:30 in the morning,  and I wanted to sleep longer, because I was at the beach, and who gets up at 5:30 a.m. while on a mini vacation? Not this girl!!
    So I got up got me a glass of water, drank it down, made my stomach hurt even more, so I thought well my slim & sassy blend says it calms your tummy, and helps curb appetite, it has ginger in it, so I know that helps tummies { one of my favorite things: ginger}, it also has peppermint in it, and other good oils, but these two are specifically for tummy issues,  so I thought well I'll try rubbing a couple of drops on my belly and go back to bed and see how it goes!  Well five drops rubbed into my tummy, did calm things down enough for me to go back to sleep until 7:30 a.m.,  so when I naturally woke up at my normal time, I was amazed.....

    I no longer had that gnawing hunger, I even had time to get dressed, brush my teeth, and head downstairs for a cup of coffee, and then I had breakfast!  

    After breakfast,  we went to the park and did some Island shopping.....  when that gnawing hunger pain came back, I just rubbed 5 drops of the 
    Slim & Sassy Blend onto my tummy, and finished up our shopping, and when we did stop for lunch, I wasn't starving, & that helps me to make better choices !  

    I'm also giving this Slim & Sassy blend a try on my dear daughter, who is always hungry too!  

    { Scroll almost to the bottom of the page to find the shakes} 

    We both have digestion issues, so we're also adding Digest~Zen to our regimen, but it may take some time to see the result of this.......

    Stay tuned.......

    Thank You To All Veterans That 
    Have Served Our Country !

    Once Again ......

    Good Morning!
    Here I go once again on my struggle to get healthy and lose some weight!

    I thought I had found my solution, to my weight issues, I was trucking along very good on it too! I lost 30 lbs right away, blood sugars weren't getting any higher, cholesterol was getting better, liver enzymes were getting better.

    So a year later here I am back at square one.

    What happened you ask?

    Well a few changes to the product I was using, and BAM it longer helps me.


    The FDA banned the most active ingredient in it, that was the first change. I don't believe for safety reasons, I believe for patent reasons, you can't patent herbs ! 

    So okay, it's still helping other issues, so I continue on it, then they take away two more ingredients.....  and its just not the same anymore.  

    As always I hop on the gravy train to late.  If I had found this product a year earlier I would be skinny by now! LOL

    Next time I find something that works SO WELL, I'm hoarding up on it! 

    So onto the next part of my journey to get healthy......

    I'm going to try some natural things that I'm hoping will help.

    The first thing I am adding to my diet is coconut oil. I've been using it some, and especially in my aromatherapy concoctions to rub on myself and my daughter. It makes your skin feel SO good!  Now I'm going to take some advice my Dr. gave me a while back, and I keep seeing the same advice all over the place. SO I'm finally going to do what my Dr. told me to do several years ago! I'm "taking" several tablespoons a day to see what happens!

    I have read that it will:

    ~ Help balance Hormones
    {This has been one of my MAJOR problems throughout my life}

    ~ Help with Blood Sugar levels

    ~ Help you loose belly fat
    {because of the way it helps your liver}

    There's MUCH more it does for you, however these are my 3 main concerns right now!

    This morning I added it to my coffee, because let's face it, a spoon full of solid coconut oil is not easy to swallow!
    It's not to bad in my coffee.....
    I think I can do this......

    I'm also adding it to my Thai Chicken Cauliflower Soup in the crockpot for dinner!

    Stay tuned & follow me, to see how it goes!  

    Happy Birthday

    My father, my husband & several good friends are a part of this elite
