DigestZen (ZenGest) & Slim & Sassy (Smart & Sassy)

DigestZen and Slim & Sassy are two of my FAV digestive and metabolism oils! They’ve completely changed the way I CAN properly support my digestive system naturally to live a healthier and happier life! 💙

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

DIGESTZEN (ZEN GEST in Canada):

🌱 Dilute and apply DigestZen topically for all kinds of digestive discomfort. Whether you overate, are feeling nauseous, are gassy and bloated, have indigestion or tummy pains, or things are moving through you too fast or not fast enough, this blend is incredibly soothing and regulating. And it works fast!

Just take a couple drops under your tongue (or add to a veggie cap and swallow if you don’t want to taste it), or dilute and massage over abdomen. I find using it both ways at the same time works amazing well!

🌱 DigestZen is also a wonderful support to stuffy sinuses! Just rub a small amount diluted with fractionated coconut oil onto sinus areas before sleeping.

🌱 Emotionally, DigestZen helps “digest” and assimilate new information and experiences, leaving you less likely to become overstimulated or overwhelmed. It also supports freedom of movement with thoughts and emotions.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

SLIM + SASSY (Smart + Sassy in Canada):

🌱 Do you often hit a slump, or predictably crave sweets and carbs mid-afternoon?
Try adding 1-2 drops of Slim & Sassy to large glass of water, or drop directly under your tongue, to stabilize blood sugar and reduce unhealthy cravings. This will also allow you body to more efficiently burn fat for fuel to support you weight loss efforts. You can also add 2-4 drops to a veggie cap and swallow if you don’t want to taste it!

🌱 Dilute a couple drops and massage over abdomen to support healthy metabolism

🌱 Emotionally, Slim & Sassy Metabolic Blend helps to clear the mind of emotional patterns which contribute to overeating. It also helps release negative emotions about body image, encouraging you to love and honor your body.

Deep Blue Essential Oil & Rub

Deep-Blue-1024x745

DEEP BLUE:

When my kids legs are growing, deep blue is what they ask for!

I love using deep blue after a chiropractic adjustment!

Deep Blue is my go to for… age, housework and mom life 😉

After exercising to soothe those beautifully worked muscles.

Feeling tense… deep blue to the rescue!

Deep Blue Oil Uses and Benefits

Deep Blue essential oil blend contains strong soothing and cooling properties. These properties can offer comfort before and after exercise and are ideal for massages. Use Deep Blue oil topically to obtain these soothing and cooling benefits.

Deep Blue is a perfect companion for a massage. Give your body a relaxing break and get a massage using Deep Blue Soothing Blend. This blend can be combined with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil to increase fluidity of massage strokes, enhance the reach of the Deep Blue essential oil blend, and help protect sensitive skin.

If you are looking for an invigorating exercise blend, look no further—the Deep Blue essential oil blend has the perfect combination of essential oils to help soothe and comfort exercise enthusiasts of all levels. For a comforting solution that will empower and soothe during and after exercise, apply Deep Blue essential oil blend to your feet and knees pre- and post-workout.

Growing can cause great discomfort and can even be the cause of restless nights. To assist your growing child during their growth spurts, combine the Deep Blue essential oil blend with a few drops of Fractionated Coconut Oil and massage into your growing child’s legs before bedtime. This will bring a cooling and soothing feeling that will help ease these occasional discomforts.

Moving can be a long and strenuous process that can sometimes put unwanted stress on back muscles. After a long day of heavy lifting, rub a few drops of Deep Blue on your lower back. The cooling and soothing sensation of Deep Blue oil will bring you relief after a strenuous day.

Cleaning can be quite the workout, and the constant movement of arms and legs can leave you tired. After a day of cleaning, give your body a well-deserved reward. Rub Deep Blue essential oil blend into your arms and legs to give them a soothing and relaxing massage.

Have a green thumb and a love for gardening? Make sure to give your body the relaxation it needs after a fun day of pruning and planting by applying Deep Blue essential oil blend to your hands and feet after gardening. This application will help relax your muscles and prepare them for your next gardening adventure.

Want to connect with your grandma and give her a treat she is sure to enjoy? Next time you’re with her, give her a hand massage with the Deep Blue essential oil blend. The soothing effect of Deep Blue oil will help relax her hands. Massages are also a great way to create meaningful connection and show that you care.

Typing on the computer may seem like minimal activity for just your wrists and fingers, but the act of typing influences and tenses many other upper body parts. After long hours on the computer, rub Deep Blue essential oil blend on your fingers, wrists, shoulders, and neck. This will help soothe, cool, and relieve affected areas.

After completing a long run, dilute a few drops of Deep Blue Soothing Blend in Fractionated Coconut Oil and massage into desired areas. This application will provide a cooling and comforting sensation for you after your workout.

Emotional Benefits:

Deep Blue is the oil of surrendering pain emotionally.

I use Deep Blue Essential oil to help relieve emotional causes for physical discomfort by massaging the area affected .

Deep Blue can help us observe painful experiences instead of overly-identifying with them.

Breathing in Deep Blue essential oil increases mental clarity in the face of danger or discomfort.

When I use Deep Blue essential oil for emotional support I feel strengthened, accepting, soothed, and serene.

Buy 1 AromaTouch Get 1 Marjoram FREE | Feb 21 BOGO

BOGO DAY 2 – for Wednesday, February 21, 2018

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

⭐️ Buy a 15ml AromaTouch get 15ml Marjoram FREE!!! ⭐️

I absolutely adore these two calming, relaxing and renewing oils.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
AROMATOUCH:

🌱 This is one of my favorite blends to add to our unscented body lotion – it’s invigorating yet so calming and soothing at the same time.

🌱 AromaTouch is my go-to blend to use on children for growing pains. Just add a few drops to your hand with some FCO and massage it in where they feel discomfort.

🌱 AromaTouch is great for pregnant women all throughout pregnancy. Rub on sore feet and muscles. It’s an excellent oil to be used during labor for back labor too!

🌱 AromaTouch also aids beautifully in the release of emotional tension. A few drops in the diffuser eases stress, and refreshes and renews the spirit.

. . . and it smells amazing – just like the spa!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
MARJORAM:

🌱 I love to add a combination of marjoram and lavender to a handful of epsom salts to soak + soothe after a long stressful day. This combo is a stress buster power duo!

Top Uses for Marjoram Essential Oil:

🌱 Marjoram essential oil is effective in helping to relieve feelings of anxiousness, grief, hyperactivity, loss of sleep, tension and feelings of stress. You can add 2-3 drops to your diffuser, or add 8-10 drops in your bath water just before bedtime.

🌱 Marjoram increases circulation by opening blood vessels and improving blood flow to an area. This makes it perfect for soothing muscular aches and stiffness, sore joints, sprains and other musculoskeletal discomforts. It’s for that reason I add Marjoram to my Tissue Repair blend to help heal those stubborn injuries and areas of inflammation! Try adding 2-3 drops to 1 ounce of fractionated coconut oil and massage into affected areas, or add it to other blends you use for sprains, strains and aches & pains. It can also be used in a hot or cold compress as needed.

🌱 Marjoram provides relief from occasional constipation, indigestion, and flatulence. Use 2-3 drops in a carrier oil and massage on the abdomen and back.

🌱 It has been proven to be to alleviate menstrual discomfort around that time of the month. Add 2-3 drops to a carrier oil and massage on lower abdomen and lower back. You could also use it in a hot compress for this purpose.

🌱 Marjoram oil is excellent for relieving discomfort from occasional skin irritations. You can add a drop to a dampened cotton ball and dab it on gently to the affected area.

🌱 Use this oil to support clear breathing by adding several drops to a steam tent and inhale deeply, or use it in your diffuser.

🌱 For persistent pain and inflammation, add 6 drops to a veggie capsule with 6 drops of Frankincense and 6 drops Lemongrass. Take one of these capsule every 8 hours until discomfort is under control.

🌱 Marjoram is wonderful for supporting the body’s detoxification processes by promoting perspiration and increasing the frequency of urination. This aids in the removal of toxins, sodium salts and excess water from the body.

🌱 Marjoram is a great oil for soothing the discomforts of contractions. You can dilute it and apply to your lower abdomen. It’s also great for after birth for the cramps that come while nursing.

🌱 Emotionally, Marjoram is the oil of connection. Diffuse or use topically to promote deeper bonds with others in your life.

Coming Into Balance

I am the mom of an amazingly kind, intelligent and fun ADHD boy. I love him dearly for not only being my son but also taking me through a new life journey.

I am learning to embrace ME and every little bit about me.

Ive been putting much more value for having downtime at home to recharge, plan, prepare and be together. That’s me and if that’s what, I need its ok!

Im so much more happier. Our family is so much more happier. Everything we have (we are still in a purge and organize mode) has a place and every place has what is to be there. We are working towards this and as we do my heart becomes so much more inline and balanced.

Being a PCOS and ADHD Mom it requires a lot of heart, planning, patience and understanding for all of us. Its been a journey we’ve been on for many years – over 13! You know what though… knowledge is POWER!

The more time I spend learning and listening to others experiences, coping mechanisms, health choices, the more I come into balance.

Friday we said good-bye to a wonderful man in our family. A man who we’ve known as long as Jaz and I have known each other. It was sad, yet also a blessing. It truly does shake up the emotions inside. I am thankful the rest of the weekend was just a go with the flow.

Such a beautiful weekend with family and some friends. Most of all a weekend at home. What I am learning is for our family – we need our downtime to recharge and prepare for the week ahead. Most weekends I aim for at least half a day to a full day at home to relax and be productive. This is great. Everyone may not need this, but for us we definitely do and that’s great.

Perhaps its more balanced boundaries. Knowing this is how we recharge, prepare and expand into the next week – so this is what we are doing.

I will admit, some weeks fly by, I can be honest they are not the most organized or clean. Sometimes dishes sit for a couple-few days, laundry is piling up in their hampers and there is dog hair everywhere!!! Thats ok. I have to remind myself – this is REAL life and its ok. Go with the flow.

This weekend I had the opportunity to finish off organizing our kitchen. While hubby and I were away in Texas my mom came over and helped us with some more organizing, this weekend I did some more organizing and am SO excited for the next stages we are at – built in pantry, closet pantry chalk door, trim and a few other finishing touches. We are getting so close and I know it feels really good because its what we envisioned, everything has a place and every place has the right thing. I am just thrilled we were able to bring this kitchen dream to life! Where we are at now – we are totally organized! Yay. Trim is being painted and hubby and his dad are making trim install plans!

We are lucky, my husband and I. We have the carpentry brilliance with my father in law Tony and my hubs Jaz! We have the talent and expansive knowledge of plumbing and hvac from my dad Jamie and my hubs Jaz! I am truly blessed and fortunate to have them in our life. For all of them to have a significant hand in us transforming our house into our home.

One other thing I have learned while growing as a mom its also that weekends, which are less structured, is that we need structure of some kind, even if its just one thing. This weekend it was skating Saturday and Monday and visiting with friends over a late lunch on Sunday. Also providing time to get more organized, prepare for the week with groceries, tidy up and keep the kitchen tidy 😀 Big smiles for that one!

We have also been pulling our mornings together a bit better by doing one simple thing. Making our bed.
Its a total visual thing. I love things looking streamlined and tidy. I like things being simple. Simple to use and multipurpose – less clutter, space.
It really feels mind opening and clearing.
Having time in the kitchen did that for me this weekend.
Having the rec room picked up and the kids beds made.

I am so grateful.

Grateful that we embrace us, we allow ourselves to have downtime to make it a priority for each of us, to be the planners that we (ok mostly I and Cars) need to be, having things organized with a place for everything and making time to do what we enjoy not just “what we have to do”. Its beneficial for all of us. For this mama to meditate and enjoy some quiet ME time! Its truly phenomenal!

Beautiful timing being as its Family Day weekend ❤

What do you do in your life to help bring Balance?

10 Uses for Melaleuca.jpg

If you would like more information please contact Pam at Your Life As Art Essentials. I am a Wellness Advocate with doTERRA. I operate my own independent business providing my clients with wellness support to support their life and health naturally! If you would like to have this oil in your home, I am happy to help you!

Beginning To Use Essential Oils

Beginning to use oils in your home can be uncomfortable at first because for many it’s out of the “norm” of what they are used to.

I like to suggest to people to start out with the Top 10 or Fav 8 oils when getting started.

These oils can be used in a variety of ways for your physical and emotional health as well as making your home smell fantastic 😉! They also come in a convenient kit at a discount and with some great info to help you on your journey!

Starting out with the oils, begin using them for simple everyday things like before you go to bed put a drop of Lavender, Balance or Wild Orange in some unscented lotion or coconut oil and rub on the back of your neck and bottoms of your feet.

Feeling like you have a hard time getting going in the morning? Use a drop of Peppermint and/or Wild Orange and rub in your hands and on the back of your neck. Cup your hands over your face and inhale.

Refresh your kitchen with Lemon or on Guard in a spray bottle with some vinegar and water to cleanse the surfaces.

Feeling tension use Deep Blue, Peppermint or Lavender to help soothe.

Feeling anxious before a trip or an important event? Lavender, Balance, Frankincense and Wild Orange are beautiful to help calm, ground and relax.

Did you know when you purchase a kit with me you get access to our exclusive online group with information, tips and hints as well as others to ask questions to and learn from the various ways they use their oils too!

I will also reach out to you within the first week of your order and provide some additional resources for you and to introduce myself!

DoTERRA Essential Oils are the highest quality essential oils you can bring into your home for your family.

Always Speak Up

As I was pulling dinner together tonight after getting week 2 of our cleanse supplements together I got thinking.

Hubby and I had a great few days away, granted alot of work talk, but still enjoyed being away together with no responsibilities. We got home, picked up the kids, we needed groceries, to make lunch and then leave for our boys hockey game which was almost an hour and a half away. Then to get home and make dinner, bedtime routine for a school day tomorrow.

As I was puttering around in the kitchen making a grocery list I began cleaning out the fridge and putting things that needed to be dumped on the counter.

My hubby had went and sat down to find the all star hockey happening and I could feel my anxiety begin to rise. I could feel my frustration as I thought we need to do, this, this and this before this time… It’s easy for me to escalate like this and panic begin to set in.

Out of frustration I asked hubby to “take care of this” as I pointed at the counter and walked out the door to get groceries. As I was driving I began to worry about the time but eased my mind that I still had lots of time.

I was home only 30 minutes later, still with lots of time to eat and put groceries away. I even got the dishwasher started, some dishes washed and asked hubby if he could make the guac for tonight.

After the game we came home and began into the evening routine. I finished up with the dishes and then began pulling things together for dinner. Pulled our supplements out and loaded up our week 2 supplements for the Cleanse we are doing and began laying organizing the other part of dinner when it hit me.

Today went so smooth and easy because I spoke up and asked. It then reminded me that as amazing of a man my hubby is, he’s not a freaking mind reader. Nor am I. He didn’t know what I needed or wanted done. Yet when I asked him, he had no problems helping me. Its OK to ask for help.

I’ve been feeling very reflective lately. In a very short time I’ve heard of alot of couples/families splitting. It breaks my heart. Obviously their situation is their own and their business. No judgment.

That could have been us. On at least a few occasions.

It really has made me reflect on where we have come from as individuals, a couple, parents and family.

Things that can and have tore people apart, we’ve found strength, love and understanding. A stronger bond.

By speaking up.

As I stood in our new kitchen this evening, my heart bursting with joy knowing that our custom kitchen, we put so much time into designing perfect for us (seriously alot lol), after speaking up and discussing together we’re getting closer to the finishing touches that make me SO excited!

A vision we both saw, with our own touches that we wouldn’t be enjoying if either of us hadn’t spoke up. One we designed together. A home we are transforming together.

I look back and am grateful that the things that just about broke us, pushed us to be stronger and because of that we are here today and its pretty freakin awesome!

If that had been us, we wouldn’t be here today. We wouldn’t be the people we are, experienced the things we’ve experienced and have the beautiful home we have.

I am grateful and thankful we each learned to speak up, follow our gut and communicate. Life will always throw us curve balls, sometimes when we least expect it. Its often to easy to make assumptions, or choose to be quiet, worry about about the “what if’s” and sometimes those worries are fear holding us back from something so much more incredible. We can grow so much more when we communicate, with ourselves, with each other.

I know every moment won’t always feel like this, daily life as parents, both of us working in our family business and more outside circumstances. However it certainly makes it easier to think back and remember on these moments of reflection to provide strength, to remember that if at ever at a crossroads, to choose to speak up. To always choose happiness. To know that there will be tough days, but when through them it is so incredibly awesome.

Travel Essentials

When traveling, especially by plane, we are exposed to alot of people and germs!

Stay your healthiest when traveling with these tips!

Click the photo above to listen to my video!

On Guard Hand Sanitizing Mist can be conveniently carried in your purse or carry on. The mist when applied to your skin will kill 99% of bacteria and other germs on the skin! It also smells great! The perfect healthy alternative to using fragrance filled soaps or hand sanitizer in public washrooms and places.

Wild Orange essential oil is both calming and uplifting. Perfect for right before you take off in an airplane to calm any nerves. Bonus it smells so uplifting and fresh too! I like putting a drop in my hands and rubbing together. It’s also cleansing so will help protect you from germs!

Balance essential oil blend is another perfect oil to use before take off, especially if you get nervous on an airplane this blend is grounding. Put a drop on your wrists and on the back of your neck. I also like to apply the oil behind each ear before take off and landing.

On Guard soft gels are great because they are convenient to take and give your immune system a boost to naturally protect and support against illness. Key for long or red eye flights when you also may be lacking on sleep. These Soft gels are a powerhouse of Wild Orange, Clove, Black Pepper, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, Oregano, Rosemary and Melissa oils.

DigestZen soft gels and essential oil is helpful when traveling and eating away from home. If you have a sensitive digestive system, eating away from home can be uncomfortable, even when you plan to eat as clean as possible. DigestZen helps balance your digestive system offering soothing comfort and relief to enjoy your trip! DigestZen soft gels are a blend of Ginger, Peppermint, Caraway, Coriander, Anise, Tarragon and Fennel.

Serenity soft gels are helpful if you have difficulty sleeping away from home. Take 1-2 capsules and enjoy a restful nights sleep.

A Diffuser is beneficial to relax the body and mind for sleep and also to cleanse the room or home you are staying in! Diffuse purify or on guard to help cleanse the air and breathe cleaner. Beautiful oils for sleep are Lavender, Serenity, Balance, Wild Orange, Cedarwood, Vetiver and Frankincense.

On Guard toothpaste offers additional protective benefits of On Guard and provides a clean, healthy option for your teeth!

Lifelong Vitality when taken daily provides your body with the optimal vitamins, minerals and omega oils to function at your very best. The supplements also boost your body to ward off illness.

DoTERRA Touch kit comes pre-diluted in 10ml roller bottles super easy for topical application. My fav’s are On Guard Touch applied on my spine, DigestZen (ZenGest) Touch to soothe my digestive system applied over my belly, Deep Blue for any tension or sore muscles, Breathe over the chest to promote clear breathing! I also love Melaleuca (Tea Tree) and lavender for any ear discomfort. Rub along the jaw and around the outside of the ear (never drip oil in the ear).

Water is important to hydrate your body but also to flush your system to help it stay strong and free of germs. I like to travel with a stainless steel water bottle and once through customs at the airport fill it up at one of their bottle fill stations.

Be sure when using oils you are using a carrier oil like coconut oil or an unscented lotion.

If these travel tips have resonated with you be sure to share them with your loved ones!
