Essential Oils: My 5 Staples

Copy of Copy of Copy of Essential Oils for.png

I am not a big DIY - using the oils I started to open up to the concept because they worked so well, however, I have tried to do the more extensive projects with them and just like when I try to experiment with cooking - I usually end up pissed off because I didn’t have the patience to correctly do the steps in the way they were intended and the results spoke for themselves. 

So when it comes to using the oils for myself, I keep it simple. 

One of my favorite solutions for using oils to deal with everyday ailments is to purchase the ready-made rollerballs from DoTERRA.  
 

Essential Oils: My 5 Staples

Peppermint Touch Rollerball Head or Neck Tension Relief
Stinky people (I teach yoga + it happens
When I have difficulty breathing or lung discomfort when seasonal or environmental threats act up, I get congested, can’t breathe - this one is great. Breathe Blend is also ideal (obvi) but between the two the peppermint packs the punch I crave. 

2. Lemon w/ a dropper (I buy the droppers that replace the cap on the oils - you can get them here: and always have lemon because it is a POWERHOUSE - whether it be trying to get sticky stuff off a service, wipe an exploded pen off my hands (yes, it’s happened and yes, it works), drop in my water to spruce it up and provide cellular goodness. 

3. Copaiba * can you help me put a soundbite for this in there as a disclaimer without going too off topic? 

This more obscure oil has become a necessity for me this past year. One of my biggest struggles growing up was anxiety. Part of my story is that I, for years, was prescribed heavy benzodiazipines from my doctors and while they are amazing for some people - not for me. I have an addictive personality and twenty three years old I hit rockbottom from alcohol and drugs (the Benzos I was prescribed.) Needless to say I still take medication for my anxiety (a small dose of non-addictive medication) but when I get those panic attacks and the feeling of anxiety in my chest that rises I need something that wil l moment and the type of medicine usually prescribed for that is on my NO-NO list. SO Copaiba. This oil is everything. I take a deep sniff of it when I need that quick release and then I put some on the base o fly

4. Peppermint Beadlets

I drink a lot of coffee and I also teach private yoga - these little babies get my breathe on point they also do an A+ job when my tummy doesn’t feel right after too much coffee and pizza.  

5. Deep Blue Rub

The amount of physical movement my body does on a weekly basis coupled with hours of being in the car traveling between clients, the Hamptons and the city - this cream has been my saving grace. While there are plenty of rubs you can get at the pharmacy (like icy hot) this one won’t leave a synthetic footprint in your body because it’s ALLLLL natural and comes from plants - not a testtube. Being the daughter of two cancer survivors - I don’t take my good fortune to have my parents here for granted and while there are a lot of things in the world I can’t control - what I put in and on my body is something I can. The lifestyle I lead and suggestions I offer are meant to be a “preventative” lifestyle. I am not offering oils as a cure all for everything - I believe in western medicine because it saved my parents BUT I also believe that we know a lot more than we did 50, 30, even 10 years ago and making small, positive choices on a daily basis add up when tehy are carried day in and out.

    Hello Mary,
    I have edited this copy for grammar and flow. The edited version is below. I hope this helps.

    You have oils - now what? Here are simple ways to put your oils to use in 2 steps or less.

    I am not a big DIY person – However, when I started using oils, I began to open up to the concept because they worked so well. I have tried to do more extensive projects with them, and just like when I try to experiment with cooking, I usually end up pissed off because I didn’t have the patience to correctly do the steps in the way they were intended. And results spoke for themselves.

    So, when it comes to using the oils for myself, I keep it simple.

    One of my favorite solutions for using oils to deal with everyday ailments is to purchase the ready-made rollerballs from DoTERRA.

    1. Peppermint Touch Rollerball
    -Headaches
    -Stinky people (Yeah, it happens. I teach yoga and people sweat. New Year’s Day is like a room full of bacon, egg and cheese, which were eaten to deal with the hangovers people have. I can tell because they are also oozing vodka from their pores.) 
    When my asthma or allergies act up, I get congested and can’t breathe - this one is great. Breathe Blend is also ideal (obvi), but between the two, the peppermint packs the punch I crave.

    2. Lemon w/ a dropper (I buy the droppers that replace the cap on the oils - you can get them here) I always have lemon because it is a POWERHOUSE - whether it be trying to get sticky stuff off a surface, wipe an exploded pen off my hands (yes, it’s happened and yes, it works), drop in my water to spruce it up or provide cellular goodness.
