Top 5 Essential Oils for Travel

travelFB

We’ve all been there: the middle seat of an airplane.  No view out the window, no easy access to the aisle, and to make things worse, both fellow travelers have nasty coughs.

Ok, maybe we haven’t had that experience to the T, but middle seat or not, germs are in great abundance in airports and planes.  A renowned study found in the Journal of Environmental Health Research informs its readers that chances for catching a cold could increase 100 times in a plane than you would be living your typical lifestyle.

The last thing I want is to feel unwell on a business trip or family vacation! 

So, behold: the ultimate list of essential oil travel tips!  Actually, to avoid this post being several thousand words long, I will just make it my top 5. :)

Oil #1: doTERRA On Guard®.

On Guard acts as an immune booster.  This is a great one if you’re wanting to travel fear-free.  It’s especially great to have on hand when traveling during holidays in the winter when everyone seems to be under the weather.

Oil #2: Melaleuca

It calms minor skin irritations.  You never know what your skin will come in contact with when traveling!  This oil is a must have when using air-travel.

Oil #3: Peppermint

Another point of focus when you travel is keeping it fresh.  Peppermint is practically synonymous with fresh.  It can help keep you awake simply by breathing it in, and it can keep you cool by adding a drop to your water or applying it to your feet or back of your neck.  It also can work wonders for your breath.  Sure is handy to have around, especially when you packed your toothbrush…who knows where?

Oil #4: doTERRA Deep Blue Soothing Blend

After a long day of travel, nothing beats the feeling of a cool and soothing touch from a Deep Blue oil roller bottle.  It can relax sore and tense muscles after a long day’s travel.

Oil #5: Lavender

Summer travel, or travel any time of the year means the sun is shining.  Lavender is amazing for soothing skin, especially after it has been exposed to some extra sunshine!

Traveling with essential oils has helped take a serious load off of my shoulders.  If you have yet to try essential oils, Click HERE to watch an INTRO webinar about essential oils!  If you have tried oils before: what oils are your favorite to travel with?

How to keep a clear mind

Hey, I know you’ve got a lot to do and you’re probably amazing at staying super calm, patient and clear minded all the time … haha :) but in case you’re like me and you need a little help with that, I’m going to give you my top 3 tricks to getting in your zen space, even when you have a lot to do!

Tip 1: Meditation

Three years ago, I hired a meditation teacher for about $150 an hour to my house and train me on his techniques and it was amazing.

About once a week :)

What I needed was DAILY practice, but I lacked the discipline and know how to give this gift to myself so when I found this app, I was ecstatic.

Did you know that in under 30 minutes a day, Harvard researchers found that meditation will actually chain your brain chemistry?

It decreases your fight or flight response and increases your rational thinking ability, the problem with most people is they feel they don’t have TIME.

This handy little app will give you 5 minute meditation options all the way up to an hour and even sends you REMINDERS throughout the day.

Imagine me in my office at 1pm, hours into my work day getting a reminder that says, “Are you present?”  I love it! It’s just what I need!

Tip 2: Peppermint & In Tune Essential Oils

So of course, you knew this was coming, an essential oil tool and the reason I love these babies is because they do the work for you!

A few months ago, I woke up every day for three days with brain fog.  I couldn’t get my mind clear and it was really frustrating me.  I’d look at my work schedule and I felt like my communication was hazy and losing impact.  On the third day, I was driving to pick up my daughter from her friends house and my mind completely cleared. I felt like the foggy glass I had been looking through was shining perfectly bright again.

“Wow, maybe a drive was all I needed,” I thought.

But then I remembered I put In tune on the back of my neck right before I left the house and I started to laugh.

Duh!  Why didn’t I use this oil three days ago?!

intune__14728.1458942873.1280.1280

That’s how I got my testimony of in tune and peppermint has a similar effect on me. I keep a roller bottle in my purse at all times and have been known to use it on strangers I’ve just met (with permission, of course :)

I love to diffuse peppermint and wild orange in my office during the day because it keeps me alert.

Think about that for a moment.
You might not feel like you want to put in that kind of effort or even spend that money, but how much are you LOSING because your mind is not working on maximum impact.

For me, an hour at work at my highest level is worth 3 or 4 hours of time on a lower energy level.  I can’t afford *not to do these things!

TIP 3: Create Your TOP 3

Top 3 is a little phrase in my community that signals us to the highest, most effective action that will yield the highest results that we want.

I keep notecards handy in my office and my desk, and haha, I’ve even been known to keep these in my bathroom vanity because for some reason, I get mad inspiration when I’m doing my hair.  Go figure, BUT…

let’s say I want to increase my sales for the month and that’s my goal.

Here’s what I WOULD NOT Do.

I wouldn’t walk around thinking, “I wonder if we’re going to make it.”
I wouldn’t check every single team in my back office and if I see any kind of lag, think, “Oh no, we’re not going to get there.’

Blah. Gross. That makes me want to vomit.

I would go to a much HIGHER place, of belief, radical positivity and massive action.

Here’s how to use TOP 3.

**Write on a note card what you want.  Mine might look like this:

We break $2 million in sales this month.  (I write it in the present tense as though it exists NOW.)

**Then, I write down my TOP 3 effective actions for me to do that will get me the highest results. Only 3. I focus all my energy on HIGHEST IMPACT.

I might write down…

Close all my new leads.
Do an enrollment webinar
Promote incentives to builders

I go all out on action, not stress.

During that time, here’s what I would NOT do.
Surf social media, bob around here and there with my activities.
Nope. I’d become super protective of my time and DO EXACTLY what was going to get me where I wanted to go.

It would keep my head clear and my emotions calm so I could use that energy to MOVE
(not to stress!)

So…there you go!

Remember, you really can do this.
You can achieve the big goals you have in your life and keep your mind calm and clear at the same time!

Madd love baby!

Natural Skin Care

JulySpeicals

The average person slathers, lathers, rubs, and sprays 10 different skin care products on his or her body every day–and since our skin acts more like a sponge than a barrier, we absorb the nearly 130 chemicals we regularly expose ourselves to.

Don’t worry, I’ve got your back!

For centuries, people have used essential oils for skin due to their soothing, purifying, and calming characteristics. doTERRA’s natural skin care products deliver the safe alternative you’re looking for!

What Challenges You Changes You

p2

Don’t shy away from pain, lean into it and see what it has to teach you.

We are Divine, infinitely powerful beings with the universe inside of us. If you’re hurting, what’s INSIDE that for your gain.

Life is happening “for” us, not to us.

When things feel hard, it doesn’t mean they aren’t working out, it means there is MORE TO COME.

God Is On My Side

p1

God gave us an earth that was unfinished so we could work with what’s here and in the process know our powers as CREATORS.

I know of nothing else (except parenthood) that shows us how strong, capable and un-bendable we are inside.

Your goals want you as much as you want them.

The universe has your back.

Things are working for your good, even your so called, “set backs.”

Know Truth by Living It

Truth

I used to sit and read and study books for hours and hours. I wanted to learn all that I could. Hungry for more knowledge, I asked God to show me how to accelerate my growth.

He led me to build a positive change business helping others heal.

Instead of reading about faith, I had to pull it out if my cells to make things move.

Instead of learning about commitment, I had to draw it out daily, amidst obstacles at times, to build something solid.

Instead of receiving revelation at church, I needed it every single day, every phone call, each interaction, I felt I had to have His guidance to know even the words to speak.

Putting PRINCIPLES into ACTION…helped me to KNOW TRUTH BY LIVING IT.

That kind of knowledge is so different in my spectrum than all the reading I used to do–like night and day. This is LIVING KNOWLEDGE. Moment by moment inspiration.

It’s one thing to “know” a principle, and another when it BECOMES who we are, by doing it so many times, we can’t even remember living another way.

It’s not truth by knowing…

It’s TRUTH by BEING, and BEING happens by IMMERSION.

Communicate Well and with Clarity

clarity

All attempts to get what we want through indirect means are manipulation.

Including the following:

-Telling our story to get others to feel sorry for us or give love & validation.

-Wanting others to do things for us and using emotional responses to guilt or pressure them into doing so. (like withdrawing love, or getting angry.)

-Using indirect methods of communication instead of open, direct DIALOGUE with the SOURCE.

We are powerful enough to create the LOVE we want and the things we feel are ours to obtain, by going directly to the source and ASKING for what we need.

For example,

if someone says to me, “I am so burdened, so frustrated…”

I am looking for what they want.

I am waiting to hear their direct requests.

“Can you share your love with me?”

“Can you give me some coaching tips?”

Going to the SOURCE and asking specifically for what we desire is the only true, healthy way. God also waits for us to ASK for what we need and invites us continually in the scriptures to do so.

Using emotion to secure what we want in any other “indirect manner” is out of alignment with our true selves which crave deep honesty, authenticity without masks and meaningful relationships by choice…not guilt ridden obligation.

When we do enough work inside to get ourselves here, and we are this clear and certain, we are now in a position of powerful Creation.

We communicate well and with clarity.

We handle our emotions with responsibility, and yield our words consciously.

With these skills, we can obtain healthy love;

We live in pure relationships that come from original desire, and we are ready to experience true abundance in all it’s forms.

Change Yourself for a Different Experience

Change Yourself

If you think people owe you something–more love, more money, more appreciation, an apology.

It means you are still outside sourcing important aspects of your life.

One thing I never hear from people who are connected to their own power is the story of how they believe someone owes them something.

They never talk about how they need an apology, a phone call back, or someone slighted them with money.

They are in the driver’s seat. They are connected to their own power and to God. They have so many great things going on, they live in a place where there is not lack.

Because they create so much for themselves, including emotionally, they don’t get “hurt” or perceive shortages from others. If a relationship doesn’t work for them, they simply change THEMSELVES and therefore they make sure they have a different experience.

TRUTH DIVE:

Who are all the people that you feel haven’t given you enough?

What personal power have you given away to them? What are you still “waiting” to be given from another person so that you can be truly happy?

If you tell the truth, Resentment for them will turn into compassion for yourself, when you didn’t know what you were doing.

What Is It Time To Let Go Of?

1_12

When you accelerate your speed, you have to let go of things that are too heavy to work anymore, like…

**Not taking time to rest & take care of yourself.

**Thinking you’re not worthy of success you’re achieving.

**Trying to be perfect all the time & constant “image management.” (poison)

**Not being honest about what you think and feel.

**Pushing yourself beyond healthy breakdown into terminal breakdown.

**Other people’s problems that don’t belong to you.

**Continuing to think about and carry the past.

What you let go of, is just as important as what YOU HOLD onto.

Breathe in and make some changes.

You get to be as “LIGHT” as you can, to keep moving and ever evolving.
