Hello friends!

To all my friends in the Northern Hemisphere — hope you’re getting cozied up with the cooler weather! I’ve lived in a lot of climates that we more like “perfect” all the time, but I have to say, I love the change of season! It just feel right to have times of being out and about (oops….a little Canadian there), being super active, and then times to pull in a have a bit more rest and quiet time, kind of re-group. I’m enjoying being more in the home, and playing more with my essential oils too!

Here are a few things I’m using my EO’s for during this change of seasons:

 

1.) IMMUNE SUPPORT WITH doTERRA OnGuard oil blend

—so powerful–smells and tastes wonderful!

  • A drop or two in my daily water bottle.
  • A drop in some warm water with a little honey – delish tea!
  • OnGuard throat drops if it feels scratchy.
  • Purse-sized spray bottle with water & a few drops of OnGuard for throat spray or to spray any surfaces.
  • Diffuse a few drops of OnGuard in my home to strengthen all of us.

 

MY STORY:  A friend recently said: “When I first walked into your home it smelled so wonderful!”

(It was OnGuard! Think: Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Rosemary & Eucalyptus! Wow! That’s a great feeling!)

2.) DIY DRYER FRESHENER

Pulling out the winter blankets!! Put a few drops of essential oils in the dryer with them–delightful and fresh! Lavender anyone? Melaleuca (Tea Tree)? Citrus? Mint?

At times I’m wary of DIY stuff—how long will this take?? I just now made these super easy Dryer Sheets in about 10 minutes! I cut up an old pair of white cotton pants into squares. I hated to throw them out–such nice cloth–and they had been taking up space in my closet, and never worn.

Mix one cup of vinegar and a few drops of essential oil in a bowl.

Add the cloth squares to moisten. Then fold and put them into a recycled jar. Pull one, squeeze it out into the jar, and pop into the dryer with the laundry– the vinegar smell goes away and oil smell refreshes – just don’t let the dryer get too hot. Put it back into the jar when done. Voila!
The blankets I just pulled out smell great now!

3.   Being at my desk…

a lot in this cozy weather, I love diffusing essential oils that engender focus and creativity while I work. Oils like: Rosemary, Wild Orange, Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Vetiver, Frankincense and Patchouli. Of course, there are delightful blends we can make, or try doTERRA’s InTune. I actually use InTune in a roller bottle nearly everytime I sit down to work–and it really helps!

By the way, I keep thinking someone needs to make an app whereby I can send aromas to your USB so you can sniff em while reading this!There almost is! You can find a LOT of little USB diffusers like this cutie online! I have an extra that I keep always in my carry-on for trips. So NICE to freshen the air in the room while traveling!

Well, my friend,

Be happy.
Be joyful.
Be in peace.

Til next time!
