Do you need extra energy (who doesn’t)? What about help with headaches or menopause? Do you have sleep issues? Well, essential oils can help!

doterra oils

This winter I’ve been exposed to the flu, the stomach virus twice and lots of colds. I’m the only one in my family that hasn’t been sick all season. I think using essential oils has helped me stay healthy.

I use a lot of oils but Peppermint, Elevation, OnGuard and Lavender are some of my favorites. I also use their toothpaste with OnGuard.

Because many of you have asked I’m sharing 3 different ways to purchase doTERRA essential oils:

1. Purchase them from the online store.

Have the oils delivered straight to your door. (All prices on the website are full retail.)

2. Become a Preferred Member

Preferred Members pay only $10 for a lifetime membership which allows them to purchase all products for 20% off retail price. Preferred Members can also take part in the Loyalty Rewards Program (which saves you even more, info below). Click here to sign up as a Preferred Member.

3. Become an Independent Product Consultant (IPC) Is this a good option? (Click here)

Yes! As a doTERRA IPC, you’ll receive the deepest discounts possible. Everything you purchase will be at wholesale price, which is 25% off retailYou don’t ever have to sell the oils to be an Independent Product Consultant. I signed up as an IPC just so I could get the lowest prices.

It costs $35/year to sign up as an IPC (aka a wholesale account.) Membership renewal is only $25 each year, PLUS you’ll automatically get a free bottle of peppermint oil. So, that makes it even better!

Will I be pressured to sell? Is there a monthly order minimum?

There are no minimums or quotas you must meet–and no one is going to pressure you to sell product or have “parties” if you aren’t interested in that aspect. I started as an IPC in May 2013 and no one has ever contacted me to ask if I wanted to sell more product or have a party.

There are a variety of enrollment kits available. Purchasing a kit is the best way to get started as an IPC.

Step by step instructions on how to become an Independent Product Consultant:

1. Click over to the sign-up page

2. Select “Join as a new Independent Product Consultant”

3. The “Enroller ID” and “Sponsor ID” boxes should already be filled in for you. But if not, enter492226 in both boxes.

4. Fill out your name, billing address, shipping address, and contact info. (The reason you are asked to list your social security number is for tax purposes. If you make over $600/year selling doTERRA products, you will receive a 1099 form in the mail, as is required by law. doTERRA will never share this info with anyone.)

5. Select your time zone and choose a virtual office password.

6. Agree to Terms & Conditions and the Virtual Office User Agreement. (The basic version of the virtual office is free. There is an upgrade option available, but you won’t need to worry about that for a while.)

8. Set up your optional Loyalty Rewards Program (LRP). This is not a requirement, although I highly recommend it as a money-saving way to build your oil collection.

doTERRA’s Loyalty Rewards Program (LRP) provides free product credits for monthly purchases ordered on the program and is the most economical way to purchase doTERRA oils. As a participant in the Loyalty Rewards Program, you will immediately begin to earn product credits that can be used as cash to purchase doTERRA products. The longer you participate in the LRP, the more credits you can earn–up to 30% of your total monthly Loyalty Rewards purchases.

If you decide that this is something you are interested in, select the products you would like to ship in your first LRP order. (You can change the products from month-to-month through your Virtual Office.) You will also need to select a ship date.

9. That’s it! Your oils will be on their way to your doorstep! You’ll receive a confirmation email– you can log into your back office right away.

If you have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. You can ask through leaving a comment or email me at cyndispivey{at}gmail{dot}com.

Beauty For the Heart~~My husband makes fun of me sometimes and calls me the “oil lady” not to be confused with “old lady”. He would get in trouble for that one!

But there are lots of scriptures that talk about oils in the Bible. I’ve just started looking into it but here’s one from the Song of Solomon.

What is that coming up from the wilderness like columns of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, with all the fragrant powders of a merchant? Song of Solomon 3:6

Have a blessed day!

How I Plan To Stay Healthy This Winter

This time of the year seems to breed colds and viruses. We stay indoors more because of the cold weather so it gives all those germs a better chance of getting us sick.

This year I’m trying to stay ahead of the game and keep myself healthy. I don’t have time to be sick!

Of course I’m going to do the usual things like exercise and eat healthy (although it’s hard during the holidays). But I’ve also added some other things that I believe are helping.

We recently had the stomach bug hit our house and I was the only one who didn’t get it. Maybe it was just a fluke, but I’m also the only one who takes doTerra vitamins and uses their toothpaste.

doTerra has a lifelong vitality pack of vitamins that I’ve been using for around 6 months and I think they’ve helped me to feel better and helped my energy level.

How I Plan To Stay Healthy This Winter

doTerra’s Lifelong Vitality supplements are formulated with potent levels of essential nutrients and powerful metabolic factors for optimal health, energy, and longevity.

Another product I use is doTerra’s natural whitening toothpaste. dōTERR’s fluoride-free toothpaste has the essential oil, On Guard.

How I Plan To Stay Healthy This Winter

On Guard is an oil blend that provides protective benefits against germs and other harmful pathogens. It helps kill harmful bacteria, mold, and viruses.

This OnGuard oil blend is highly popular and is used to help fight colds and for disinfecting. I love using my essential oils and I feel good about using something I know is healthy and safe.

If you’re interested in ordering any of these products you can go here.

Do you take vitamins? What are you doing to help stay healthy this winter?

Beauty For the Heart~~I’m studying the book of Job right now. Today I read Job 38. God is answering Job and I was reminded of this–God is in control and I.am.not. 

Maybe you need to be reminded of that today too. As women, we sometimes think we can control things but truthfully we can’t, so it’s best to give it to God.

Here’s Job 38:2-11 from The Message version:

And now, finally, God answered Job from the eye of a violent storm. He said:

Why do you confuse the issue? Why do you talk without knowing what you’re talking about? Pull yourself together, Job! Up on your feet! Stand tall!

I have some questions for you, and I want some straight answers. Where were you when I created the earth? Tell me, since you know so much!

Who decided on its size? Certainly you’ll know that! Who came up with the blueprints and measurements?

How was its foundation poured, and who set the cornerstone, While the morning stars sang in chorus and all the angels shouted praise?

And who took charge of the ocean when it gushed forth like a baby from the womb? That was me! I wrapped it in soft clouds, and tucked it in safely at night.

Then I made a playpen for it, a strong playpen so it couldn’t run loose, And said, ‘Stay here, this is your place. Your wild tantrums are confined to this place.’

Have a blessed day!

Essential Oils-Lavender & Elevation

Today I’m continuing my How To Stay Healthy Over 40 series. Last week I shared about Solace, one of the essential oils I use. Today, I’m talking about two more essential oils I love and how I use them.

Hands down, sleep and the lack of, has been a huge problem for me. Everything I read says sleep is important for our health.

But for some reason when we hit our forties the majority of women say they wake up some time during the night and can’t go back to sleep. Three o’clock seems to be a magic number for most of us.

I have never taken prescription sleep aids because I was too scared of them. I did try over the counter sleep aids and they worked some of the time but I didn’t like taking them either.

Lavender essential oil has been my life saver! I absolutely love it and I use it every night before I go to bed.

Lavender is a natural sleep aid that helps to calm and relax. I put it on the bottom of my feet and use a drop on my pillow. It smells wonderful and I’ve slept so much better!

Lavender essential oil

Lavender can be used for everything! When in doubt, use lavender. Burns, cuts, rashes, and the list goes on. This by far is my favorite oil!

This next oil is a great one too! Elevation is a blend of several oils. I don’t go anywhere without this one, it stays in my purse.

Elevation is the perfect blend for those moments when you need to be revitalized. This oil can elevate your mood and increase your energy!

Elevation essential oil

I use this one on my wrists first thing in the morning. If I am tired during the day, I’ll apply it again. If I’m stressed or having a down day this is my go to oil!

Both of these oils are amazing! I don’t understand how an oil can help with sleep, anxiety, mood, energy etc. but I can tell you from experience they do work.

So how many of you struggle with sleep? What about anxiety & stress? What do you use to help with these issues?

If you’re interested in ordering any doTerra oils you can go here. (I’m not in the essential oil business but because I’ve ordered a kit, I can sell them. I’m only offering this to you all because I know you might want to try them. If you know someone who sells them by all means get the oils from them.)

Beauty For the Heart~~Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. Psalm 63:3-4

Essential Oils & Menopause

Yesterday I told you I would share with you the essential oils I use. I want to share all of them with you but I can’t do it in one post. I have to admit I’m a “short post” person. I don’t like to read blogs that have really long posts, they lose my attention.

So today, I’ll share the one I use for menopause and then next week I’ll share a couple more. I hope that’s okay with you!

First I thought we’d have a little laugh (I need some laughter in my life these days!). Ecards crack me up!

Menopause

This one is hurts a little. I hope these mood swings are NOT the real me and I sure hope they subside in time (so does my husband!).

Menopause {source} 

Okay, now to share the oil blend I use for my menopausal symptoms. It’s called Solace and it’s specifically made for women. Solace oil blend is made with 11 Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils including clary sage, lavender, bergamot, Roman chamomile, cedarwood, ylang ylang, geranium, fennel, carrot seed, palmarosa, and vitex.

Solace Monthly Blend For Women

The primary benefits of Solace are:

• Provides temporary ease from cramps, nausea, hot flashes, and the emotional swings sometimes associated with regular hormone cycles in women

• Supports healthy hormone levels in women

I keep this with me at all times! I use it every morning while I’m getting ready and then any time during the day I feel I need it. This blend comes in a roll on bottle. So you can roll it on anytime you want! I use it on the back of my neck and my chest area.

Has it stopped all my hot flashes? No. I still have them but I DO think they have subsided. I also think it helps calm me, it eases tension and I’m hoping it’s balancing my hormone levels.

I feel better about using Solace verses HRT. There are no side affects with using Solace oil like there are with HRT. But, I know this is not for everyone.  We each have to do what we feel comfortable with, that’s the bottom line. 

***doTerra has recently changed the name of Solace To ClaryCalm Blend. So that’s what it will be listed as on their website.

Because I know some of you will ask where you can get the ClaryCalm oil blend, I’m sharing my page with you. The reason I can sell them is because I bought a kit when I first ordered them. I don’t sell them outside of this blog or have parties. I’m not trying to climb any ladder etc.

I share things with you all that I’m passionate about and if you order them I will get a percentage. I always want to be upfront and honest!

Are you using anything for PMS or menopausal symptoms? Is it helping?

How To Stay Healthy After 40-Essential Oils

Good morning! Let me begin by saying thank you to each of you who left comments on my post yesterday. I was overwhelmed by all your sweet words of love and prayers for our family.

I say this all the time (and my sister, Traci has even noticed this) but I have the nicest readers and you all not only leave comments for me, but for each other. You are such a blessing!

I shared yesterday about our difficult week because I wanted you all to know that my life is not perfect. I hope I never come across that way. I’m on this journey called life and at times it’s extremely difficult. But I can face today because I know Jesus. I am so thankful for that!

Okay now let’s get on to How To Stay Healthy After 40. Today, I’m going to share about essential oils! I seemed to get the most emails and questions about using them.

I know you all know this but don’t stop taking medications that have been prescribed by a doctor. Talk to your doctor before quitting any medication. :-)

How To Stay Healthy-Essential Oils

First, I’ll tell you for a long time I thought my friends who used essential oils were a little “koo koo.” But I did think it was interesting and I decided to do a little research into them.

Essential Oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They are very fragrant, clean, almost crisp, to the touch and are immediately absorbed by the skin.

Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used as a single oil at a time or in complex blends depending on user experience and desired benefit.

Essential oils are usually administered by one of three methods: diffused aromatically, applied topically, or taken internally as dietary supplements. I personally do all three!

I have been using essentials oils for 4 months and I am hooked! I love them and use them everyday. Come back tomorrow and I’ll share some of the oils I use most often, and how I use them.

Have any of you tried essential oils before? If you have, which ones are your favorite? Click the button in my sidebar if you want to learn more about essential oils.

How I Plan To Stay Healthy This Winter

Beauty For the Heart~~ No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39

How To Stay Healthy After 40-Menopause

Menapause

Good morning! Well, Saturday I asked if you all would be interested in talking about “How to stay healthy after 40.” I’m not a doctor nor do I have all the answers but I can tell you the steps I’m taking to make this season of my life better.

Before I share with you what I’m doing, I need you to know how I got here!

In 2009, I lost my Mom to gastric cancer. I was 43 years old and over the next year I cried a lot. I had mood swings, I woke up every night at 3 am and even had a change in my menstrual cycle. I assumed this was all a part of the stress I was under from losing my Mom.

The only thing my Mom had ever told me about menopause was that she had gone through it early. When I went in for my yearly physical in 2010 I asked if they would check my hormone levels.

I was completely shocked to find out that I was already beginning menopause at 43 years old! What?? I’m way too young!

At first I decided I was going to tough it out. I was not going to let menopause get the best of me. It couldn’t be that bad, right?

Within a year, I was begging the doctor to do something—anything. I was struggling! Hot flashes several times a day and night, mood swings, still struggling with sleep, and I could cry at the drop of a hat.

At that time she put me on the lowest dose of hormone replacement and it definitely helped. But I was not comfortable taking it.

Let me say here, that each of us have to do what we are comfortable with. If you’re taking a hormone replacement that’s your choice and I know lots of women who take them.  

I have a lot of cancer in my family so I decided to make changes that I was comfortable with and hopefully would help me feel my best.

There are 3 things I’ve changed over the last year and for the first time I’m feeling the best I’ve felt in a long time.

1. I’ve cut out a significant amount of processed food.

2. I exercise regularly.

3. I use essential oils in place of hormone replacement therapy.

Okay, I’m going to go into detail about each of these over the next few weeks.

You all are so great about sharing in the comment section and helping each other, so please tell me if you’ve tried anything that is working for you!

Beauty For the Heart~~Lord, show me your ways. Teach me how to follow you. Guide me in your truth. Teach me. You are God my Savior. I put my hope in you all day long. Psalm 25:4-5

Have a blessed day!
