Citrus Sunshine Smoothie

 

Who doesn’t love a good smoothie? I am always looking for new ways to spice up my mornings, and anything that can amp up or change up my morning smoothie routine I’m willing to try!

This is such a great, refreshing recipe. I love orange flavored anything, and since orange essential oil is great for when you are feeling a bit blue and helps give your immunity a little boost, it’s GREAT to add t your morning routine. Adding the Slique Shake is great to add that extra protein and not a ton of calories.

Try this and let me know what your think! Anyone else have any great smoothie recipes using essential oils I must try? I would love to hear feedback from you!

Weight Loss with Essential Oils

So essential oils are kind of becoming the new “it” thing, for good reason. I started my oil journey back in February. When I saw there was a weight loss trio, I was very skeptical. I decided to try it anyways, and I’m so happy I did!!!

Since I started using essential oils for weight loss, I have lost a little over 20lbs!!!! I have done zero as far as exercise is concerned. Only changes I have made is using my weight loss trio and trying to eat a little better. Don’t get me wrong, I eat out occasionally, but not nearly as much as I used to, and I honestly think that it’s related to using the weight loss trio.

One thing I know for sure, the weight loss trio has dramatically increased my water in take and decreased my pop intake. I wasn’t a big water drinker before, just didn’t have much of a taste for it since….. well it’s tasteless. After adding the oils (which do not add any calories!) to my water I began loving the fruity flavor and it was very easy to keep drinking. I used to drink (crave even) mountain dew every day, I would have at least 2 cans. Now, I hardly ever have it, and if I do I usually don’t even finish 1 can. The amount of energy I have now had dramatically increased too!

Weight loss

At first I tried the grapefruit, lemon and peppermint.  I used to have really bad acid reflux (which I don’t anymore thanks to using these awesome oils!) so the peppermint didn’t work for me (I’m also not a big peppermint fan). I have since swapped the peppermint out for tangerine and haven’t looked back since!
Water

Sometimes when I want to mix it up, I will do lemon and lime together (be careful with the lime, a little bit goes a LONG way, I suggest starting with 1 drop).

I have also heard some get results with the ocotea, but again same as the lime a little bit goes a long way!

There is also a newer product out slique essence. It’s a combination of lemon, grapefruit, spearmint, tangerine and ocotea. I have heard other ladies are getting awesome results with this as well. Since it has the ocotea in it, though, be very cautious with how much you use. Again, I’d start with 1 drop per 8oz (or more) of water and see how it tastes for you.

Slique Essence

I would LOVE to hear from others that have tried any of these oils for weight loss and your stories, please feel free to comment with them blow.

Interested in trying these out? Let me know! I can add it to my order for you and you won’t have to pay the retail price! You won’t get the wholesale price (I’m not allowed to offer that to non-members), but if you decided to order a Premium Starter Kit you can purchase these at the wholesale price!

Bergamot Essential Oil- August Promotion

Bergamot is a hidden GEM for moodiness! The components of bergamot oil increase hormone secretion improving mood and energy. The flavonoids present in bergamot oil stimulate the activity of certain hormones in the body, which induce feelings of relaxation and sedation, like dopamine and serotonin. Seriously…diffuse some bergamot and try to be mad. Just try.

What else can this bad boy do? Glad you asked. Cut yourself while sharpening up all 150 thousand pencils? Bergamot can cleanse the wound and stop it from getting funky.

Kids are disgusting and touch all the things and rarely wash their hands well enough so it is no surprise when they end up with a loose booty the first few weeks of school…I mean…they JUST went back and now they are home…and whiny…and stinky…and just no. Well bergamot is a great way to handle the bugs that can cause the diarrhea. Mix it with some carrier and rub on the belly and go ahead and throw some in a capsule for yourself…you know you are next. Might wanna try to nip it early.

Homework giving you a headache? You are in luck! Bergamot reduces the feeling of pain in the body by stimulating the secretion of certain hormones which lessens sensitivity of nerves to pain. Whaaaa? Bergamot is also a cicatrisant. Cicatrisant means a property or an agent which helps scars and other marks on the skin to disappear. Wait a minute? These little brown spots that people that want to be punched in the face call age spots could potentially be erased?

Stinky pits causing gym clothes to be so funky you would rather replace them than wear them? Try adding bergamot to your pits or your DIY deodorant. Nobody likes the smell of funky pits. Nobody. Handle it.
Oh and back to that whole back to school means germs and illness…if temps start climbing go ahead throw some bergamot on the spine, feet, pits and belly button. If your kids get intestinal worms…which I have heard happens…bergamot is your guy. Done. Not speaking of this ever again.

Bad breath got everybody dodging you? Bad tooth got you chewing on one side? Drop some bergamot in some water and swish. Tell your friends they can thank me later.

Crusty heels, eczema, cramps, coughs, congestion…yeah bergamot. Get at it.

Thieves Hand Purifier

Back to kids and their snot wiping, open sneezing, questionable butt wiping, poor hand hygiene having, germ sharing ways. Let’s help them out without hurting them long term.
Most commercial hand sanitizers have many questionable ingredients…such as triclosan and fragrance. Both are hormone disruptors. (and just a little heads up…neither of these are in Thieves Hand Sanitizer) The FDA says research shows triclosan may lead to hormonal disruptions and cause bacteria to adapt to its antimicrobial properties, which create more antibiotic-resistant strains. Animal studies have shown that the compound could change the way hormones work in the body. Researchers at University of Michigan School of Public Health found that triclosan may negatively affect human immune function. Compromising the immune system can make people more susceptible to allergies, and more vulnerable to the toxic chemical Bisphenol A, which is found in plastics. In the study, children and teens with higher levels of triclosan were more likely to be diagnosed with hay fever and other allergies.

um…is that enough to make you want to switch????

If your hand sanitizer is scented, then it’s likely loaded with toxic chemicals. Companies aren’t required to disclose the ingredients that make up their secret scents, and therefore generally are made from dozens of chemicals. Synthetic fragrances contain phthalates, which are endocrine disrupters that mimic hormones and could alter genital development. (source:Kurumi Fukushima)

So now the ingredients in Thieves Hand Purifier denatured ethanol SD-38B (denatured with peppermint essential oil) water aloe barbadensis leaf vegetable glycerin syzygium aromaticum† (clove) flower bud oil citrus limon† (lemon) peel oil cinnamon verum† (cinnamon) bark oil eucalyptus radiate† leaf oil rosmarinus officinalis† (rosemary) leaf oil hydroxylpropyl cellulose

Google them. They are solid. No worries.

A few other uses for Thieves Hand Purifier that may surprise you.
On the go stain removal. From oily dressing you dropped on your shirt because you eat like a wild animal to ink from a pen you should have taken out of your bag when you noticed it broke a week ago THP handles it all. Razor burn? Try using THP as an aftershave. Bugs got you itching like whoa…yeah lather up in the THP. You’re welcome. Cut yourself? You guessed it. THP. Realize you forgot your deodorant a little too late? After a wee bit of burning you will be good to go. Who’s down with THP? #passtheTHP
