Feed your Water

Feed your water and body

Sometimes water just isn't something I want to drink. It's like eating vegetables. You know you really should but you just don't want to. So you add seasoning, or pasta to dress up those veggies.⠀

Why not do the same thing with your water? Two done in one. Hydrate your body while feeding it at the same time. Grapefruit is one of my favorites. The best part, citrus is known to help with metabolism. There are so many fruit choices. Grab yours today!

I am a fall girl so I am all about that spicy taste. One of my all-time favorites to add to my water is Slim and Sassy. I love the ginger taste. Plus helps my metabolism and settles the stomach. I love dropping a drop into my energize before I workout. ⠀

I never leave home without the Slim and Sassy gum. For one it tastes amazing. Also helps with any indigestion, and it is great for oral health. Chewing a piece right after a meal really helps the breath and clean the teeth. ⠀

DIY is so KISS (keep it simple Silly)

I’m amazed how much a simple sugar scrub costs. With this easy to make recipe you can make a lot for the amount you pay for that tiny container.

DIY Car Freshener

Why buy when you can naturally & easily make ??

DIY air fresheners are so easy and so convenient

I also use those cotton makeup remover pads. I just drop a few drops of oil on them and I put them all around.

You can add a few drops to your filters for your air conditioners. Instant air freshener. Pretty much anything porous.

I make leather earrings and add my oils to those. There are so many possibilities. But that’s a blog post for another time.

DIY Oil Pulling

What is Oil Pulling?

This is a natural process to whiten the teeth, strengthen your gums and promote healthy hygiene.

All you need in one place

All the tools you need to experience oil pulling yourself

I have tried doing just coconut oil. The process was a bit snotty. Adding the essential oils made the process more pleasant with the taste. Plus the essential oils included are detoxifying and strengthen your immunity.

Cass WTH is Sourcing

What the heck is sourcing?

Why is sourcing so important?

Think about that.

If the source of a product isn’t pure, natural and safe what is the sense of the product.

A product as essential as essential oils needs to be of the most respected, honest and diligent sourcing as possible. That’s why I’m committed to Doterra.

Before you buy an essential oil please do your research. Some oils are sensitive to light. Some brands add alcohol to cheapen the price and manufacturing. Some you buy off Amazon might not even be what the bottle says.

Learn all about sourcing of your essential oils before putting them to use.

Learn and educate before you decide to purchase that cheaper oil in the store.

DIY cuticle oil

Waste not want not 🤔

Is that the saying.

I used to spend hundreds on products

that just cluttered my bathroom

cabinets.

Always thinking 💭this will be the one

for me. Be it, skincare, allergy relief, 

healing of some type. It was exhausting and so wasteful. Throwing away products, again and again. Feeling defeated I wasted my hard earned money. Not to mention the amount of plastic I would have to throw out.

Learn how easy it is to create your own Cuticle oil with a empty essential oil Doterra Touch bottle.

Not anymore. These little bottles are magic. You use them, pop the roller top off and reuse again. I even put my veggie caps inside the clear bottles.

Get everything you need HERE to create your own cuticle oil yourself. Don’t worry I am sure there will be more DIY’s to use these oils with a future posts.

Versatility is key

Versatility is key

On Guard is everything when it comes to uses and support.


Before we get into uses the question I am always asked. What does it smell like. I love On Guard because to me it smells like fall. doTERRA On Guard® essential oil blend includes oils from Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary.

Natural Deodorant better than Retail ?

What is in your deodorant?

I have been testing the differences between my Secret antipersperant and my Balance Doterra deodorant. I didn't want to get it because I did think maybe it was a bit spendy. I can't tell you how long ago that was. What I can say is I still have my Balance and I have been through two bottles of my Secret deodorant.

When you want quality that lasts you make the decision to pay a little extra. Plus knowing I am not adding extra toxins into my body is worth a few extra dollars. I am loving the BALANCE I have right now. They lymphatic system is located all throughout the body, routing lymph fluid. Our lymph nodes work as filters for harmful substances and contain immune cells that can help fight infection by attacking and destroying germs carried in through the fluid.

The less you bombard your body, the more optimally it will function. Small efforts over time create big ripples in our wellness.

We all know about the internal detoxes with food and drink. Have you stopped and thought of the things you put on your body. An easy way to remove the gunk in your life is by making simple, cleaner, plant-based swaps. If you are more of a citrus person we have an amazing uplifting CITRUS BLEND natural deodorant

Doterra makes it really easy to take baby steps to swapping out to natural. If you become a wholesale customer you can save while you earn rewards to apply to future purchases.

Take your oils on the go

Roller Blends travel with you

Roller blends are the answer to anyone who is looking to use essential oils as easily and conveniently as possible. These sweet little bottles are perfect on the go. They are perfect to share with friends. I know sharing sounds wrong. Remember that essential oil blends are blended with coconut oil.

Do we know about coconut oil? Coconut oil is already an anti-bacterial. That means it is self-cleaning. One of my favorite things is sharing essential oils with others. Roller blends allow me to do that. They are the perfect gift.

How do you use roller blends?

There really isn’t a trick to the blends. You open the bottle on roll on.

Where do I roll it? On the back of your neck, the bottoms of your feet, your wrists anywhere you have pulse points especially. Also on the back of the spine works very well.

Core strength essential

Why is core strength so vital in life? The core is your power house. Being a mom of two that has had two cesareans, I know not having core. The amazingly helpless feeling of the lack of ability. Just to simply stand up. To bend over.

We tend to forget just how amazingly necessary the core of our body is. Learn more from the experts.

If you have joint pain or issues being on the floor for a Fitness need there are different options. Barre is an amazing low impact workout that can revitalize that core. Strengthen and stabilize the muscles to the strength you didn’t realize you could accomplish. If you’re not in the Chicago area to attend my classes. I strongly recommend researching your type of Barre classes. There are many different types. Find the core to achieving your ideal core.

Pardon me ANXIETY

Pardon me anxiety you were not invited.

Sometimes we just forget to breathe. 🧘‍♀️ Being a mom with anxiety can feel defeating at times. My mind and fears take over. Sometimes to an overwhelmingly scary place. 💆🏻‍♀️

I’m not one that can take pills or medications. I have learned through the years they don’t agree with me. 

I have had some scary 😨 side effects and rejection to medications. 

Because if of that I took it upon myself to become educated. Within that journey I’ve discovered my love of teaching 👩🏻‍💻and sharing with others. 

Mental wellness needs tools just as physical wellness needs physical activity. Enter Doterra essential oils 🌿and all the amazing education they provide to their wellness advocates. 

Take some time when things become overwhelming to just stop. Doterra serenity with a drop of copaiba is my two drop miracle. 

Drop in the palm of the hands. Rub together and breathe. Just breathe. Think and reflect on the good no matter how long ago it happened. We control our anxiety it doesn’t control us. 

We just need to take the time to learn about ourselves and what we need to interrupt anxiety with gratitude 🥰
