Essential Oils for Thyroid Support

I like to meet up with people over coffee and chat about how doTERRA essential oils can help them (and you!) reach their health goals. It’s one of my favorite things to do. I love watching the lightbulb come on as we talk about how the oils work, how to use them, and bettering their families health. (P.S. We can always meet up virtually for coffee if you’re interested in a free wellness consultation.)

One of the issues that has come up in the past is thyroid support. There have been a handful of people that come my way that ask if essential oils can support their thyroid. The answer is yes. The answer is through consistent use of essential oils and a healthy lifestyle, your body will take care of itself. So I’ve done some research on this, and chatted with friends who use doTERRA for their thyroid and I have a blend I’d like to share with you today.

doTERRA Blend for Thyroid Support

  1. Frankincense
  2. Myrrh
  3. Clove
  4. Lemongrass

What I do is fill up an empty rollerbottle about halfway or slightly less with the essential oils. Then top the rollerbottle with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil. Give it a little shake to mix up all the essential oils. Use this blend topically over your thyroid 2-3 times a day. Consistency is key with essential oils. Don’t just use it for a week and stop. Do this consistently for a couple of months and then decide if it’s something you need to incorporate into your everyday routine. There are a few other suggestions I’d like to give, and I’ll discuss further about in later posts.

doTERRA Daily Protocol for Optimal Health

  1. Lifelong Vitality Pack: I recommend this for everyone. The Lifelong Vitality Pack is filled with whole food and all natural vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to give your body a solid foundation.
  2. Frankincense & Copiaba: These two together are unstoppable. I’ve started incorporating taking these two essential oils internally, in a veggie capsule, every day. They are amazing at immune support, brain health, emotional support, and about a billion other things.
  3. Citrus oils in Water: doTERRA citrus oils, like Lemon or Grapefruit, will not only make your water taste good, but benefit your overall health. Also, tasty water will make you more likely to hydrate, so drink up! Be sure you’re drinking your water in glass or stainless steel when using doTERRA essential oils.

Cooking with Essential Oils: Sweet & Salty Popcorn

I’m back! Thank you for your patience while I made some adjustments to my blog. I appreciate all the love and support you have shown. Now, let’s get to it!

Last week I went over to my friend Amy’s house and she served an amazing homemade popcorn. It was the perfect combination of sweet and salty. Best of all: it is composed of all natural ingredients and made with essential oils for an extra dose of awesome.

Ingredients:
• 1 cup un-popped popcorn kernels (preferably organic & GMO free)
• ¼ cup butter
• ¼ cup pure maple syrup (NOT pancake syrup, go get the real deal!)
• 4-5 drops Protective blend essential oil
• Cinnamon powder and salt, to taste

Directions:
1. Place the kernels and a small amount of butter (a tablespoon or so) in a pan or pot with a lid, turn on medium high heat and get popping!
2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter and maple syrup and incorporate together.
3. Once the popcorn is popped, pour the butter and maple syrup mixture on top. Put the lid on and shake it really well to evenly coat.
4. Once coated, add a sprinkling of salt and cinnamon powder and enjoy!

Notes:
• When I was eating this popcorn, I kept thinking about Cracker Jacks, and thought, Next time I’ll add nuts! So if you love Cracker Jacks throw some peanuts or almonds in and you won’t regret it.
• The Protective blend consists of: wild orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary essential oil. This blend is formulated to support your immune system, and is great to use on a daily basis. It tastes like a Thanksgiving day celebration!
• Any kettle corn lover is sure to inhale this popcorn, but a note of caution: pregnant women should use the Protective blend sparingly, so if you want to you can always leave it out for them.
• Again, I only trust one brand for internal use and to find out more information on the brand of essential oil I adore, you can email me at info@amandagerber.com.

Who’s making this popcorn for their next movie night?!?
