Diffuse these three oils to feel all the sunshine, citrus, and zen as you crush this Monday!
We've talked lots in the past couple weeks about spring time seasonal concerns. So today, I want to highlight the third oil in our seasonal trio: Lavender
Lavender Oil Uses and Benefits
Dear friends, spring time has brought with it a host of seasonal struggles here in the midwest. Easer weekend started it all and now, we can't even go outside without our cars being coated in pollen, our eyes feeling itchy, and our noses feeling stuffy.
Tonight, let me share Peppermint with you.
It is a beautiful addition to our seasonal trio, as it opens up the respiratory system and relieves head tension like a pro. These are two major complaints of seasonal sufferers and Peppermint is in our trio for this very reason!
Another great reason we love Peppermint in our home though, is for its ability to repel bugs... spiders and ants in particular.
Here's a great story from one of the department heads from doTERRA Compliance.
"I was working outside one day and I noticed that the cracks in my driveway had been overtaken by ants. There were thousands of them! In my rush to resolve this problem in the quickest possible manner, I decided fire was my best option. A few hours later I returned to inspect the ant colony only to find they were still there. Honestly, I was frustrated but also impressed. Maybe we could learn to co-exist. I would control the boundaries from the basketball hoop to the eastern gate, and the ants would control the western boundaries ending at the sidewalk. As I searched for paper and pen to draft new property boundaries I stumbled across a bottle of Peppermint. I recalled my essential oil training and how Peppermint can be used as a safe and effective bug repellent. I liberally dropped the oil in the cracks and all around where the ants were to see if that would do anything. When I came back to it later, the ants were gone."
To go along with that story, dōTERRA Science published an article that highlights good oils to use to repel insects in all situations and why it works. You can read that article here: https://doterra.com/US/en/brochures-magazines-doterra-living-spring-essential-science-bug-off

I'm sharing my favorite tips for surviving spring this week as the weather seems to be finally settling in, and the sun seems to be shining more every day!
One of my favorite oils this time of year is Lemon. It smells like sunshine, is a spring cleaning powerhouse, and is part of everyone's favorite seasonal threats trio. Especially this week as we approach Easter, we all need a little something to help cleanse our body. dōTERRA Lemon essential oil is a powerful cleansing agent that can help aid in digestion.* With its multiple benefits and uses, Lemon is also great for purifying the air and enhancing the flavor of desserts and main dishes. When diffused, Lemon is very uplifting and energizing and has been shown to help improve mood. Diffuse dōTERRA Lemon in your home this week to help create an uplifting environment for friends and family.

I am a mommy of SEVEN (yes 7) beautiful kids! They are amazing, wonderful, hilarious & the greatest babies I could ask for! I am married to my best friend & high school sweetheart, Michael.
I love to craft. I love to decorate. I am passionate about natural living & natural birthing. Sometimes I write stuff. I plan parties like my life depended on it. My favorite color is pink. My house is definitely NOT taupe. I typically cannot keep plants alive. I am only allowed to have dogs as pets because all others tend to have the same end result as the plants. Luckily my track record with kids is pretty good! Also, I drink a lot of coffee. And I really like tacos.
