Almond Orange Scrub

This just sounds wonderful for a Saturday morning start.
Just be careful with sun exposure while using any citrus essential oils right after the scrub.

Vitamins! Look, feel, and live younger, longer

dōTERRA LIFELONG VITALITY PACK – 1 MONTH SUPPLY

My Vitamin Trip

Since my move to America I have been introduced to Vitamins and Supplements in a small pill form in mass production. For a very long time I found it completely unnecessary to go down the road of purchasing expensive vitamins. How do I know if they will help? And if they help on which level should I see results? Is there a way of knowing?

I have been reading and experimenting with a lot of brands and different combination in order to see full results. Most of the time I have not seen or felt a difference. Quite the opposite. My body got rid of any excessive vitamins, which resulted in money wasted. When it comes to vitamins; more is not better. The quality is important.

I had more obvious results doing my juicing, detoxing, fasting and eating my 80/20 raw food diet. Also another amazing way of a daily start is my Lemon, Turmeric & Ginger drink. This is another subject matter though.

I did finally come across vitamins which leave me with more Energy, Better Skin and a Boosted Immune system.

Do you have those days where you feel you can’t get out of this lethargic and foggy state you are in, the missing mental focus you needed to perform another great presentation at work, the missing immune system when your kids bring all their germs from school home? Breaking of your nails and dull skin?

Often these are signs that your body is missing something.

For me, I found, that I was doing most of the basics: Healthy diet, Exercise and some days I had better sleep than others. I knew I needed to get my stress level way down (hence the move to Portugal and away from a corporate job) but in addition I wanted to boost my Immune system and keep a balanced level of vitamins in my system which can’t be derived from natural food sources anymore or are rarely accessible. Especially in the US.

After using my doTERRA oils for a while and seeing great success, I wanted to expand my self-tests to the next level. I stumbled over the vitamin section of doTERRA.

I heard a lot of good things about their choices on how to combine the necessary vitamins. Watch a video here.

They provide potent levels of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, co-factors of cellular energy production, and a proprietary blend of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils.

These daily vitamins have become a routine and part of my staple diet. I do feel a difference once I don’t have my monthly supply available. I have them now on my monthly and automated order system with doTERRA and I can only give praise. At the end they are also doTERRA’s #1 seller.

It is a given that a body won’t heal, feel energized and complete if we don’t treat it the way it deserves to be treated.

If we don’t exercise, eat right, reduce our stress to a manageable amounts or if we try to conquer the world with non-natural  toxic sources we most likely will experience a let down at one point in our life.

I would say, you decide. Just make sure that you take the good, plant-based vitamins and don’t waste money.

Thanks for reading!

What are Essential Oils?

What are Essential Oils ?

Essential oils come from nature. From the lemon tree you have seen and smelled I’m sure and from the leaves of trees which surround you. The oils have been been there all along. Essential Oils are nothing new to the human kind. In fact they have been used in every way possible – since a few hundred years.

What are Essential Oils made off?

They are made of small glands that can sit in completely different parts of a plant:

  • on the leaves ( such as with Eucalyptus , Lemonbalm or Lemongrass )
  • in the flowers (like Jasmine, Rose , Chamomile)
  • on the peel ( all citrus fruit )
  • in wood ( for example Cedar- or Sandalwood )
  • in the roots ( as with Ginger, Orris root and other )
  • in the bark ( Cinnamon )
  • in resin ( Myrrh or Frankincense )

The word ” ätherisch (german) and ethereal (english) ” was derived from the Greek ” aither ” , which means something like   “delicate, exquisite, dainty, elegant, graceful, beautiful, lovely” or “heaven scent ” . The substances are indeed volatile but you receive an incredible concentrate of each plant.

Thus , they are also sometimes referred to as “fragrant souls of plants” .

A little history from the ESSENTIAL OIL brand I’m using which is doTERRA (watch a small video about doTERRA).

Essential Oils, History, Egyptians, Greeks
The History of Essential Oils

Essential oils have been used throughout recorded history for a wide variety of wellness applications. The Egyptians were some of the first people to use aromatic essential oils extensively in medical practice, beauty treatment, food preparation, and in religious ceremony. Frankincense, sandalwood, myrrh and cinnamon were considered very valuable cargo along caravan trade routes and were sometimes exchanged for gold.

Borrowing from the Egyptians, the Greeks used essential oils in their practices of therapeutic massage and aromatherapy. The Romans also used aromatic oils to promote health and personal hygiene. Influenced by the Greeks and Romans, as well as Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic use of aromatic herbs, the Persians began to refine distillation methods for extracting essential oils from aromatic plants. Essential oil extracts were used throughout the dark ages in Europe for their anti-bacterial and fragrant properties.

In modern times, the powerful healing properties of essential oils were rediscovered in 1937 by a French chemist, Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, who healed a badly burnt hand with pure lavender oil. A French contemporary, Dr. Jean Valnet, used therapeutic-grade essential oils to successfully treat injured soldiers during World War II. Dr. Valnet went on to become a world leader in the development of aromatherapy practices. The modern use of essential oils has continued to grow rapidly as health scientists and medical practitioners continue to research and validate the numerous health and wellness benefits of therapeutic-grade essential oils
