Bedtime accidents

My son is 8 years old and he is strong, handsome, has an amazing heart for others,  and active.  Potty training was not that hard, he got the concept and was able to remember to go as long as he was not playing a video game, Boys. :-) At night was a little different he would have accidents at night randomly about 2 times a week and we were never ready for it so it was difficult. We cut back his water intake after dinner and we would think this is the day that he is going to wake up if he needs to go, but it wasn't.  We started to use Cypress oil over his bladder every night and that helped so much! Cypress oil is like a muscle relaxer for the bladder so that in the middle of the night when you get the muscle spasms to go to the bathroom they are not strong enough to push out the urine.  It was amazing! He did not have an accident for months! He was so happy and so grateful one day he came to me and said, "Mom, I am so thankful that God gave us the oils so that I don't have to pee the bed anymore." It was so sweet and so true. I am so thankful God created the oils to help us too. It was such a great relief after trying and trying all we could do without any relief. 
After a few months he started to have an accident once every 2 weeks and very randomly. He had fallen off using Cypress every night so we got back on it but would still have random accidents we were at a loss again. My friend a Chiropractor mentioned that an adjustment could help with that. I was so excited that this might be the answer we were looking for!  When he went in she said he had the tightest lower back she had ever seen on a child! She could not adjust his lower back which is what he needed the most. Finding out he was so tight I knew what oils to apply for that, Past Tense, Deep Blue, AromaTouch, and Cypress- we were applying the Cypress over the bladder but now we would focus on the back instead. With the oils it is better to be consistent when applying but life happens and we have applied the Past Tense on his lower back almost every day and my Husband gave him an Aromatouch Technique this week. Last night when I  applied the Past Tense with a little light massage I could tell he was looser but I did not say anything and he went to bed. This morning he woke up at 5 am to go to the bathroom all on is own!!! He actually woke me up because we are on vacation in Maine and I helped him downstairs. I have never been more happy to be awake at 5! I gave him a kiss when I went back to lay down and he said to me, "I think the Past Tense worked because I drank a lot of water before bed." He did and I was worried but the oils worked and he was able to wake up to go to the restroom.  I am excited to go back to Vegas to see our Chiropractor to see if she can adjust him now that he is not so tight. We will keep up with the Past Tense and another AromaTouch Technique before we go back but I am excited for this problem to be completely resolved and to help others with the same issue.

Nails and hair, oh my!

I love long nails! I use to get acrylic but then I had kids, no money,  and no time. So, I lost the nails. Since I have been using the LifeLong Vitality Supplements my nails grow longer and stay strong. The nutrients that my body is getting helps with my nails and hair. 
I usually have long hair but every once in awhile I cut it off and start fresh.  The last time I did that I decided to keep it short.  I have to get it cut like every 4 that is just too much upkeep for me. So a little bit long then a cut :-)
The LifeLong Vitality or LLV in doTERRA lingo say, are amazing!  They are powder in a gel capsule so your body doesn't need to break down a rock to get the nutrients.  All the nutrients are whole foods so that your body sees it as food and can use it as such. It has a tummy tamer blend that help with all sorts of stomach issues.  In addition to that there are 9 different essential oils on them to help your body work at its best! If you have not tried them they are amazing and doTERRA gives a money back guarantee! If you do not like how you feel after 30 days return the empty bottles and you get your $$ back! It is great how doTERRA stands by its products :-)

I have had 5 children 2 my own and 3 as a surrogate.  If you look at our family you would never think that we have struggled with infertility. I had 5 years of unprotected sex before we conceived our first child. Then 3 years between the second. It was 4 years between my second and the 1st surrogate.  Then a year between the 2nd surrogate.  One reason why I wanted to be a surrogate is because I knew the pain of not being pregnant.  The main reason was that I felt God told me :-) I think God put that pain in my life to drive me to do what he wanted. It worked. Ok so how does doTERRA works into this story? Well. Good question! You have seen my post about Candida and the clense that I did where I lost weight,  got rid of my asthma,  and am overall healthier. So one of the things that Candida can cause is infertility.  I am happy to say that I am no longer infertile!  I know it is an answer to prayer but I also know that cleansing my body ridding it of Candida helped to get us where we needed to be and our bodies working properly.
The first month we tried we got pregnant!  I was and still am amazed!

Our clense is
LifeLong Vitality everyday
GX assist for the from the 1st to the 10th day of the month,  1 pill 3 times a day, sometimes my husband and I would do 2 pills 3 times a day.
Terrasheild 2-3 pills on an empty stomach at bedtime the 1st to the 4th day of the month.
2 drops frankincense and 2 drop DigestZen the 5th to the 10th day of the month.
PB assist 11th to the 15th day of the month, 1 pill 3 times a day then continue 1 a day for the rest of the month.
Zendocrin oil and supplement are very beneficial to clense your organs. This was not a staple for us but we did use it at night on day 16th to 30th intermittently. I like to put the Zendocrin oil on my my feet and take 2 of the supplement at bedtime.

This is what worked for our family.  doTERRA has a regiment that is similar to this but that came out after we were doing the clense this way.

I hope this helps you or your family and friends with infertility.  It is a hard road and I am so glad I do not have to worry about it for myself ever again.

If you are just starting out with the oils and want to do the clense we started taking the LifeLong Vitality 6 months before we did the clense.  I think that helped with detoxifying our bodies.  The Family Wellness kit is a great one to get started then the clense for at least 6 months.  It took my body that long to get back in order.

Gluten free dairy free Brownies!

This came out so yummy!

1/4 cup dry organic black beans
1/4 cup organic red quinoa
1/4 cup organic green lentils
1/4 cup coach's oats (if you want to be super safe from gluten replace with quinoa)
1 tbs Chia seed
1/2 Baking powder (aluminum-free)
Mill all these in a Vitamix grinder until the consistency of flour. 

Add 1/2 cup cocoa powder to the mix

In your regular Vitamix container or other blender....Vitamix is best ;-)

2/3 cup could switch out half for coconut sugar, I did not have any :-(
4 eggs
1 banana
1 apple
1/3 cup coconut oil
Add your 3 drops of favorite essential oil pepermint, orange, cinnamon, cassia, or Onguard are all great choices!

Then add dry into wet and blend together.

Rub a tbs of coconut oil in the bottom and sides of the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 min or until most of the top of the brownies are not wet looking.  When it is just a small wet spot in the middle it is done.
I used a 9x9 glass pan. You could use a cake sheet if you wanted to have them thinner.  I like thick deliciousness :-)

I was not sure about this recipe but pushed through and it was so good! Definitely a go to :-)

This would be amazing with banana Ice Cream!

Natural hair care does not work....or so you thought!

Have you ever choked yourself on your hairspray? It is so nasty! There is a better way!
1 tbs sugar in 2 oz water with 4 drops wild orange and 2 drops frankincense. The wild orange smells amazing. It is uplifting and energizing, just what you need in the morning when you are getting ready. The  frankincense  is good for everything, especially mood, so this is a great combination. You can use whatever oils that brings you joy. You need a fine mist spray bottle.  Dissolve the sugar in the water over heat. Do NOT let it boil. Cool your mixure. Add your essential oils in your spray bottle then pour in your sugar water mix.
This works so well! I even used it on my daughter for her Allstar cheer competition and everything stayed in place better than regular hairspray! I can't believe I never knew there was a way to get the chemicals out and still have great results! It is amazing!

Not a hair out of place even after winning the National Championship!

Clary Calm my new best friend

                     ****warning! ****
Woman monthly issues will be talked about in this post. If you don't want to know don't read :-)

Ok now that you have been warned.  I have always had unregular monthly cycles that were long and painful. I was not looking forward to having it again.  I was a surrogate and had twins in December 2012 and have not a cycle yet because I have been pumping for very preemie babies up until 5 days ago. I started my cycle the very next day! I normally don't have a cycle for a couple months after I stop lactating. For me my first cycle is the WORST after lacking and I was worried.  I know Clary Calm has worked for my friends but I have not been able to use it since starting doTERRA because did not have my cycle. I was excited to see how it worked for me. I rubbed it over my ovaries but I had back pain and rubbed it over my lower back. Within minutes, like 2 minutes, my pain was gone! I applied it about 4 times a day and I was comfortable.  I felt a little hormonal so I applied a little on my temples and I feel it made a difference in my mood because of my cycle.  If that was not amazing enough I am already over my cycle! My normal is over a week! I am so excited! My flow was heavy for 3 days then it just turned off. I couldn't believe it! I am not sure why but I know I am super excited to see if my cycle comes on a normal schedule for the first time in my life. 
It is so weird for me to be normal but I am excited to see what my normal is now that I am detoxed and candida is under control.

Not so Knotie

We just came back from an awesome visit to see friends in Colorado! As we were driving Allen kept moving his whole upper body to look side to side. I started rubbing his neck down with Past Tense, one of his favorite doTERRA blends,  but it did not released the knots. So we added Deep Blue layering it, Deep Blue then Past Tense. That still did not get out the knots.  Then I thought about all the oils we had talked about at the doTERRA class last night. Balance is one of Chrystal's favorite oils and it is also her friend Pam's favorite oil! So I thought, let's try it! I just did one side from a couple drops out of a sample bottle and he could move again!!! I was amazed! I rubbed it on the other side and at the base of his skull and he had full range of motion! I know Balance is an awesome oil. It helps with emotional and physical balance, anxiety, depression, fear, grief,  sorrow, mood swings, bursitis, confusion, convulsions,  diabetic sores, Grand Mal Seizures, seizures,  Herniated disks, hot flashes, hyperactivity, Lou Gehrig's disease, lupus, balancing Metabolism, and even back pain but I did not realize it would release knots like that :-) So glad it worked for my Hubby!

Valentines Day chocolates

All the chocolates and candy are so sweet on valentines day but here is a better option that will not leave that icky feeling after all the sweets. Pimples after eating chocolate are not a fun way to remember valentines day. They seem to never go away! Well I have an oil for that :-) A dab of On Guard on a toxin pimple will relieve the pain and get rid of it quickly. Here is a recipe for yummy healthy chocolate you can enjoy all year long with doTERRA essential oils that kick up the health benefits and leave the pimples behind.

1st step
 2 cups coconut oil
4 oz cacao butter
1/3 cup honey
1tbs coconut sugar
1 vanilla bean scraped
1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt

2nd step
2-4 drops your choice doTERRA essential oils
1 1/2 TBS cacao nibs separated
1 TBS coconut cream (if desired) great to add for a creamy center. 

Melt some of the coconut oil then put everything in the 1st step list in the blender. This will make white chocolate. Remove about 1/3 cup per batch into a glass small bowl. Add 2-4 drops of doTERRA essential oils in each batch to flavor your chocolate. I used lavender and lemon, pepermint, orange, ginger and orange, cinnamon and cassia, On Guard, and lemon. Try different combinations to see what you like best and make sure you used doTERRA essential oils so you are getting a pure product that has the health benefits. After you make your white chocolates add 1 TBS cacao nibs and blend till smooth. Take out as many batches as you want for your "milk chocolate" there is no milk in it but you could add 1 tbs coconut cream if you feel the need. The rest will be your dark chocolate. Add 1/2 TBS of cacao nibs and blend until smooth. 
Once you have all your molds filled if you have extra place in a bowl and place all in the fridge.  Remove the extra in the bowl once it is hard and let soften about 20 min. Then use a melon baller to make truffles.  You can roll in coconut flakes, cacao power, or whatever you think of. 
Keep chocolates all in your fridge until you are ready to enjoy.

Our oil Journey

 Our oil journey started in November 2011 when a friend gave me a tiny sample of Breathe. She saw how much I was suffering from a sinus infection and wheezing that I was plagued with for 6 months! During that 6 months I would take antibiotics but it would just come back stronger than ever. I have also had asthma since I was 13 so I was wheezing horribly even after using my nebulizer. Just by smelling this little bottle of essential oil 10 times I stopped wheezing! I was amazed and wanted to be desperately fixed. I bought a bottle of On Guard because my friend said it kills bacteria and viruses. In 3 days I could taste my food again and in 5 days I was all better! I was so amazed :-)
In the next 5 months I used that same 2 bottles to share with everyone who has a sniffle, cough or wheeze. I did not want to jump into another business that was going to cost me more money that I just did not have. When someone wanted to get oils I just referred them to my friend.  Then my friend came and told me that that three people had signed up and now I was loosing money! So with much prayer I whole heartedly sign up and hosted my first class. I had 5 friends and family get their own membership that day! I was supper excited! Since then I have had so much life change that I want to continue to share the fun things I have learned about the oils with everyone.  One of the biggest changes for myself is I no longer have asthma. Second is I have lost over 30 lbs. Third is I have more energy to do what I love. The last big life change is that my husband will soon be retiring from his day job and we can be a family all the time!
I hope you will start or continue your own health journey with me :-)
God Bless, and remember, mama has an oil for that :-)
