December Promos

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… that’s right, time to gear up for Christmas! Even if it is still in the 80s here in south Texas. I wanna make your home feel like Christmas, even if it is warm, and keep your family healthy during the holidays. Today I want to share with you the December promos, so you can be sure to take full advantage of them and get stocked up on all your doTERRA favorites.

doTERRA has been doing this timely promo for the past few years, and we all look forward to it every year. For December only, if you place a 200PV order you will receive a FREE Frankincense from doTERRA. Frankincense is one of my favorite oils, and I’ll be devoting a post to it soon. Basically, you can use it for anything: immune health, it’s has great anti-aging properties for your skin, it’s wonderful to kill your heartaches and muscle pain, and is packed with components to keep your mind healthy and strong.

Also, you can snag another oil AND ornament for free this month. If you place a qualifying Loyalty Rewards order this month, you’ll get some fun stuff! Are you familiar with the benefits of doTERRA’s Loyalty Rewards Program? IF not check out my podcast. When you place a 125PV order this month, you will receive a FREE Holiday Joy and diffuser ornament for free. This oil is great to diffuse in your home for mood and immune support.

So essentially, you could get TWO free powerhouse essential oils this month, and a free ornament for your Christmas tree.

Lastly, I want to mention that Myrrh is 10% off this month. Do you see the theme here with Frankincense and Myrrh. Both were gifts given to baby Jesus (along with gold. Hello?! Does that right there tell you the VALUE in these oils?!), and both are so important to have in your home. Myrrh is known for its cleansing properties, emotional support, and amazing skin enhancing properties as well.

Do you wanna take advantage of these promos?! If you’re currently not working with a doTERRA Wellness Advocate, please reach out to me, I’d love to help you and your family reach your health goals. Check out my website for more information mydoterra.com/amandagerber

doTERRA BOGO: Lavender & Peppermint

Happy Thanksgiving friends! I am so thankful for the amazing gift of doTERRA essential oils, and for my family… and we have a lot of family at my house right now so I’ll keep this short. Today only if you purchase a bottle of doTERRA Lavender essential oil you will get a free bottle of Peppermint essential oil.

Y’all, these are essentials in any homes. We literally use these two essential oils every single day. They are staples around here. Here is a brief overview.

Lavender: This essential oil is good for all things soothing. You need to soothe you skin? Apply Lavender straight on your area of concern. You need to soothe your emotions? Apply Lavender on your pulse points or diffuse it with some frankincense. Need better sleep? Diffuse Lavender and Cedarwood for a restful nights sleep. We use this oil for everything from bug bites and diaper rash to moody kids and sleepless nights.

Peppermint: This essential oil can be used for so many things. For digestive support I like to drink 1 drop in a hot cup of water and make my own peppermint tea with it. For respiratory support we apply this with some eucalyptus to our chest to open up our airways and clear congestion. In the mornings I pair Peppermint and Wild Orange to wake me up and uplift any grumpy morning moods.

doTERRA BOGO: Peace & Motivate

Hey friends! I woke up at 5:30 this morning just so I could see the BOGO deals and spread the word before my kids woke up. Well, turns out Noah was already up and talking to himself, but he knows not to get out of bed yet. Anyway, moving on…

Today only if you purchase a doTERRA Peace Touch, you will get a doTERRA Motivate Touch for free! Now their Touch line is amazing. doTERRA’s Touch line is the same essential oil you love, diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil in a rollerbottle. So it’s great to use for younger kids or for those who may be sensitive to some essential oils.

Peace Touch (Reassuring Blend): This blend consists of Fractionated Coconut Oil, Vetiver, Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Frankincense, Clary Sage, Marjoram, Labdanum Leaf, and Spearmint. I love this oil. I like to use it as a natural perfume because it has an amazing floral woodsy smell to it that is calming and subtle. It provides just what it claims to: peace and reassurance. If you deal with anxious or fearful emotions, just roll this over your pulse points. If the demands of your work day start to overwhelm you, roll this on your wrists and breathe deeply. If your kids seem to be bouncing off the walls at bedtime, roll this on their cute little feet and diffuse it in their bedroom. This is an oil I use often, and it’s one that I like to have in my purse or diaper bag when I’m out of the house.

Motivate Touch (Encouraging Blend): This blend consists of Fractionated Coconut Oil, Peppermint, Clementine, Coriander, Basil, Yuzu, Melissa, Rosemary, and Vanilla Bean Absolute. Y’all if you can’t tell by this lineup, this blend smells amazing. It has a citrusy mint aroma that’s intoxicating. I love using this in the morning to help wake  up and get moving. It can also help promote feelings of confidence and belief, while eliminating feelings of doubt and pessimistic. I like to roll some on before I teach a doTERRA class or step on stage when I’m networking. You’ve got to try it!

This One’s for the Girls: doTERRA Essential Oils for Menstrual Relief

Y’all, I’m just gonna keep it real with this post today. First, here’s a warning to all the men out there: This post is related to women’s issues and hormones. Specifically how doTERRA essential oils can be used to bring relief when you’re on your period. I’m going there today. So hang on tight, you’re in for a fun ride!

Many times I can predict when I’m going to start my period because I notice a few signs: I’m emotional, I tend to breakout a few days before starting, I start getting cramps and back ache, and my craving for chocolate goes through the roof. These issues continue while I’m on my period, and then I feel “normal” again when the week passes. Did you know you can make these week (and the days before) much more manageable by incorporating essential oils throughout the week.

ClaryCalm (Monthly Blend for Women): Does anyone else experience mood swings before their period? I do! I tend to get weepy and irritable before I start my period. Once that happens, I have 2 oils that I turn to. The first one is ClaryCalm. ClaryCalm is a blend of essential oils specifically designed to help women during this time. It consists of Clary Sage, Lavender, Bergamot, Roman Chamomile, Ylang Ylang, Cedarwood, Geranium, Fennel, Carrot Seed, Palmarose, and Vitex essential oils. The aroma has a pleasant sweet and earthy smell to it. You can start applying it pulse points when you’re hormones seem to be all over the place, and you can apply it over your ovaries if you tend to have a heavy menstruation or cramping. I apply this oil topically right where I’m cramping, and then heat up a heating pad and place it on my stomach as well. The combination provides a lot of relief for me.

Melaleuca: Commonly known as tea tree oil, Melaleuca is known for its cleansing and purifying properties. Melaleuca can help with those blemishes and breakout that tend to happen during this time. I simply rub some on my hand and apply it right on top of the pimple. I like to combine it with the next essential oil that I’m going to highlight.

Frankincense: Frankincense is my favorite essential oil. It is kind of the “all purpose” of the essential oils. During my period, I combine this essential oil with Melaleuca and use for clear my skin because it has great soothing and cleansing effects on your skin. It’s also my second oil of choose to calm my unpredictable emotions. I also like to use it topically for emotional support as well, along with the ClaryCalm.

Grapefruit: This may seem like a random essential oil to use right now, but Grapefruit essential oil can help to curb sugar cravings. I like to put a drop of this oil in my glass of water and continuously drink this to curb those cravings. (Reminder: I only recommend taking doTERRA essential oils internally, and encourage everyone to do their research when purchasing essential oils.) Citrus oils also pair beautifully with frankincense to uplift your mood, and it’s a great diffuser blend. This will help to uplift everyone’s mood during this time!

Deep Blue (Soothing Blend): Deep Blue is a blend of essential oils designed to bring relief to occasional sore muscles or joints. It is made of Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Ylang Ylang, Helichrysum, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile, and Osmanthus essential oil. I dilute this essential oil with some doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil, and apply it to my aching back. I also will utilize a heating pad, and use a heating pad on my back after applying this essential oil. The combination of the essential oil and heat is amazing!

Well folks, I hope you found this post helpful. These are my go to oils when I’m on my period, and I’m so glad I found natural solutions to help with this week that creeps up every month. I’d love to hear from you: Do you have another essential oil that you utilize during your period?

DIY: OnGuard Hand Cleansing Spray

I feel like I was just picking my kids up for their last day of school, and now their first day of school is quickly approaching. We were getting my oldest son’s back to school supplies this past weekend, and do you know what was on the list? Hand gels. Yikes. Most traditional hand cleaning gels have ingredients like alcohols, synthetic fragrances, and other chemicals I’d like my young kiddos to avoid.

We have stopped using conventional hand gels the past couple of years, and now we just make our our hand cleansing sprays using doTERRA essential oils. So I’m here today to share how you can make this easy and economical hand cleansing spray. The great thing is, this spray also doubles as a throat soothing spray if you have a sore throat.

*For the record, I bought the hand gels because his classroom shares community supplies, but I’ll be sending a hand cleansing spray for him in his lunchbox so he can use it before lunch. Sometimes, the situation isn’t perfect, but we do what we can.*

doTERRA OnGuard Hand Cleansing Spray

 

Ingredients:

1 (2 ounce) glass or stainless steel spray bottle

10 drops of doTERRA OnGuard essential oil

1 squirt of doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil

Water

Directions:

1. Place the drops of OnGuard in the spray bottle.

2. Add the Fractionated Coconut Oil.

3. Top with water.

4. Put on the spray cap, and give it a good shake.

5. Enjoy! Use this to cleanse your hands, the shopping cart, tables at restaurants, airport bathrooms, and any other surface that seems a little sketchy.

Notes:

1. If you are currently out of OnGuard (this has happened to me before), you can use Melaleuca in a pinch, but OnGuard is definitely my first choice for this spray.

2. If you’re feeling fancy, you can add a squirt of witch hazel to the mix, but I normally do without unless I happen to have witch hazel on hand.

3. doTERRA doesn’t sell the empty spray bottles, but you can find them at retailers online.

Here are some great ways to use doTERRA OnGuard essential oil blend. What is your favorite way to use this oil?
