doTERRA BOGO: OnGuard Bundle

Hey friends! So it’s the last day of doTERRA BOGOs, and I’m gonna take a quick minute to tell you all about today’s BOGO. It’s a great one!

Today only if you purchase doTERRA OnGuard (Protective Blend) essential oil, you will get doTERRA’s OnGuard foaming hand soap and two soap pumps absolutely free! OnGuard was the first doTERRA essential oil I used. I had throat discomfort, and my friend let me use some of her OnGuard oil topically on my throat. I fell in love with the results, and got a starter kit!

Now before I get into the uses of OnGuard, I want to let you know that you can use this oil aromatically in your diffuser, topically on the area of concern, and internally. It makes a great hot tea! Be sure to dilute this oil if you’re using it on someone with sensitive skin. Also, I think it’s pretty self explanatory on how to use the hand soap, so I’ll skip over that product.

You can use doTERRA OnGuard (Protective Blend) for:

  • Immune support
  • Clean your kitchen, bathroom, and floors naturally
  • Throat discomfort
  • Diffuse to cleanse the air in your home
  • Uplift your mood

Homemade Crunchy Granola

Yogurt for dinner. This is the kind of dinner I have when my husband is gone. I make random dishes that he doesn’t enjoy: lentil soup, rice and beans, vegan chili, and many plant based recipes on my mind. Now, to be fair: my husbands loves his veggies, but he also loves his meat. So, when he’s gone, we pretty much go plant based because that’s my jam. Plus, I finally found a dairy free yogurt that I love: So Delicious. It’s a coconut milk based yogurt. I like to buy plain and then sweeten it myself.

So, one evening we wanted yogurt for dinner. The kids thought it was a fun idea, and I always think of the movie Julie + Julia when I eat this. However, if you’re gonna have yogurt for dinner, you need all the toppings to go with it. (If you give a mouse a cookie…).  We had plenty of berries, honey, chia seeds… but we didn’t have any granola. Now, I’ve made homemade granola in the past, but I’ve never been able to get it “clumpy,” and all clumpy granola recipes I was finding was using egg as the binder. Now, I’m not 100% vegan, but I like to limit the amount of animal products I eat (except honey, there are so many health benefits, I still use it often).

I finally stumbled upon a recipe by COOKIE + kate that promised clumpy granola without using eggs. I tweaked it a little, and my kids and I love it. Today, I’m sharing my version of this recipe with you… but first, look at the “clumpiness!”

 (Then just break it into the size you want!)

Ingredients

  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped nuts (I used pecans and walnuts)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 liquid sweetener (I used half honey and half maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup coconut flakes

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
  3. Combine the wet ingredients in a small bowl, and add to the dry ingredients.
  4. Mix really well to ensure it’s well incorporated.
  5. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, and pour granola onto the sheet. Make sure to pack it really tight together to help it clump together.
  6. Bake for a total time of 22 minutes, and stir halfway through.
  7. Allow it to cool completely before breaking it up. This will ensure it clumps.
  8. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Notes

  • I know honey isn’t vegan, but I still use it regularly as it has many health benefits. Feel free to use all maple syrup or agave to make this recipe 100% vegan. You do you.
  • Technically, this is a gluten free recipe, but some oats still contain gluten, so make sure your oats are safe if you have a gluten allergy.
  • Pretty much anything can be substituted or added to this recipe, you may just need to make a few adjustments! Some optional add ins are: dried fruit, seeds, and additional spices.

Enjoy this granola over your yogurt, in your bowl of almond milk (check out my easy homemade recipe), or just on its own as a snack!

Check out the poll I did on Instagram. The amount of people that find it acceptable to eat yogurt for dinner is pretty even, so how about you: Yogurt for dinner?

Self Care Series: Sleep

I’m sure many of us have heard this before: You need to take better care of yourself. This may sound surprising considering my passion is health and wellness, but it was something that was coming up a lot for me lately. I was still providing my body with good foods, quality essential oils, and amazing supplements, but there were some key elements I was missing. I am just a few weeks into this, and I already feel a difference. So, I decided to share my personal experience with y’all, and start a self care series.

Today’s focus will be on sleep. Sleep has always been something I could easily sacrifice, but that doesn’t mean I should! When I was 12 years old I developed insomnia for over a year, so I was normally running on 2 or 3 hours a night. In high school and college pulling “all nighters” to study for exams or finish writing essays was the norm for me. Once motherhood came along, a lack of sleep had just become a part of life. I would throw phrases around, like Sleep when you’re dead… Sleep is for the weak… 10:00PM – 1:00AM are my office hours. I normally would stay up super late, and then just crash at midnight or 1:00AM. Y’all, my kids are up at 6:00AM, and 5 hours is NOT enough sleep for this 31 year old mama. I may have been able to function on that 10 years ago, but that is just not the case anymore.

Eventually, your body will show signs of wear and tear. (And please here me out on this, all you achievement driven people like myself: THIS IS NOT A WEAKNESS. Good grief, when did I start believing if I got 8 hours of sleep I wasn’t being productive enough? What a load of crap! Our bodies were designed to sleep for 8 hours a day.) If you are looking for a natural solution to help your body get a good night’s sleep, try using doTERRA’s Serenity (Restful Blend) products. You can find them at mydoterra.com/amandagerber.

Are you wondering what a lack of sleep actually does to your body? Well, let me tell ya:

  • Brain Fog & Memory Retention: When we sleep, we are giving our mind a rest. Just like our muscles need to rest overtime, so does our brain. If we aren’t giving our brain enough time to rest, then metal fatigue and brain fog sets in. You can also become forgetful, and your short term memory may suffer. For additional support, consider dropping 1 drop of doTERRA’s Frankincense under your tongue to promote a optimal brain health.
  • Weight Issues: If you’re someone who is trying to lose weight, then you definitely need a good night’s sleep. Studies have shown that an inadequate amount of sleep can prohibit your body from shedding pounds. For additional support, consider using doTERRA’s Slim & Sassy products to support a healthy blood sugar and metabolism.
  • Aging: Too little sleep can increase signs of aging. This can include fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, and circles under your eyes. Many times, what is happening on our skin is the reflection of what’s happening internally as well. For additional support, use doTERRA’s Immortelle (Anti-Aging Blend) to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Emotional Suffering: If you’re not getting enough sleep for your body, then you will probably be quick tempered, moody, or suffer from mood swings. Now your lack of sleep is affecting everyone around you, especially your family. For additional support, try out some of doTERRA’s blends of oils that support your mood and emotions: Peace, Balance, Elevation, or Cheer.
  • Weakened Immune System: A lack of sleep can weaken your immune system, and make you more likely to catch various colds, or viruses that are in your area. For additional support, use doTERRA’s OnGuard (Protective Blend) and Melaleuca to support a healthy immune system.

I decided recently to make a change. I recognized how my lack of sleep was affecting not just me, but my family as well. So, I decided to get 8 hours of sleep a night. For the most part, I have been sticking with it. Have I noticed a drastic change? No, but nothing ever happens overnight. (See what I did there?) Plus, I was already feeling pretty good, so this is something I’m implementing for the long term benefits. Although, I have been noticing I am able to stay on task more without being distracted, so I am enjoying that!

Bonus from ME!

For those of you curious about the doTERRA essential oils I mentioned, here is what I am offering when you choose to start your doTERRA journey with me (and this month only doTERRA is throwing in $50 in FREE essential oils with any starter kit!):

•Welcome gift (personalized roller bottles, recipes, and other oily goodies)
