Happy Valentine’s Day: Intimacy Blends

Hey y’all! I know this is quite unusual for me to do TWO blog posts back to back, but I wanted to give you a couple of blends you may want to us tonight. These two blends are intended to help support a healthy libido, so if you need a little help getting in the mood tonight, try it out! They can also help encourage a healthy emotional connection between you and your significant other.

I’ll go more in depth about these particular doTERRA essential oils, why they work to encourage intimacy, and how they work together in a later post. I just thought y’all might want these for tonight.

You can put the drops listed below in a roller bottle, top with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil and roll on pulse points as needed. If you are struggling to emotionally or physically connect with your spouse on a regular basis, then you might want to consider making these oils a part of your daily routine to help build that connection.

Here ya go!


P.S. These are not my original recipes. I got these from The Essential Life book, but I did make these cute graphics!

What’s your go-to essential oil for inspiring intimacy?


Be Thankful: Even When It’s Hard


I distinctly remember this night from one year ago. I remember that it was last November simply because of how fitting this revelation was for this timing… A time when we tend to shift our gaze off of ourselves, and focus on giving to others. A time when we appreciate the blessings we have, and stop mulling over what we don’t have. Although, that was the polar opposite of my heart that night.

I had been tossing and turning all night. I was wrestling with this voice taunting me in the back of my head. During this time, I had a few friends reach some amazing goals and accomplishments. Goals I wanted to reach, but at the time seemed so far fetched. I was so conflicted, because truly I wanted to be happy for them… And in a sense I was, but at the same time I wasn’t happy for them. I was jealous of them. I was lying awake thinking, Why can’t that happen to me? What accomplishments have I achieved in this life? (Which is such a narrow perspective, y’all. Ugh, so self serving, but I’m just being honest. That’s where I was at in the moment).

So, I did what I normally do when I have trouble sleeping. I prayed. I cried out to the Lord, and revealed the ugliness of my heart to Him. I asked Him for forgiveness, for guidance, for help to refine my heart.

Basically this is how my conversation went: God, you know my heart right now, and I don’t want this bitterness and jealousy within me. What do I need to do so I can actually be happy for my friends?

And then I heard it. That still, small voice. In a gentle tone, He said: Be thankful. That’s it. Two words. Be thankful. So, that’s what I did. I thanked Him for my friends, for bringing them in my life, for their achievements, I prayed He would continue to bless them and lead them. So simple, and yet so profound.


Y’all, I was in tears by the time I was done. That simple prayer shifted my perspective off of myself, and unto the Kingdom. Thankfulness welled up in my heart for the work being done through my friends for the furtherance of His Kingdom, and truly I was honored to be able to witness their journey.
