Do you enjoy listening to podcasts? Me too! So, I thought it was a great idea to run an intro to essential oils class podcast style. Here in a short 35 minute audio file I introduce you to why I started using essential oils, what they are and give you a quick run through the top 10 essential oils we (at doTERRA) recommend for every household.
This recording is of an Essential Oils one on one chat I had with a fellow breast cancer survivor. She didn't love being recorded, so it's mostly just me talking!
This isn't the standard class format, I don't even talk about what essential oils are, or why doTERRA. That being said, I hope it's helpful. If you're a breast cancer survivor and would like to learn more, please get in touch with me - my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
One thing I want to make clear - Clary Sage/Clary Calm are very potent and you need to be careful using them if you've had a hormonal breast cancer. Do your research, ask your Doctor and trust your intuition..
Please enjoy listening to my dog bark and me discuss my vacant love life. Typical Yvette Mayer over share. Vulnerability in action.
Since taking on my essential oils side hustle I’ve been doing a lot of work on myself. It’s a part of the journey that’s not negotiable, if you plan to succeed - and I do. Investing yourself into multi level marketing is not for the feint of heart. There’s a social stigma attached and that aspect alone is enough to scare off most. Personally, one of my greatest drivers in life is (and always has been) being ‘liked’. Imagine then, putting myself out there into an environment where many will judge and question my motives, say no to me, or worse, turn off me. I tell you, it’s character building stuff.
Early on, I learned that the best way to rise to this type of challenge is to have a clear, strong WHY. As in a reason, so extremely motivating that it trumps everything else. Fact is, if you know why you’re doing something and it’s genuinely heart felt, important, life changing and soul inspiring, then…and only then… you have every chance of success.
Whilst doing yoga this morning and during savasana, when I 'should' have been quieting my mind, instead I was inspired to write this post! The reason being, I couldn't wait to get home to apply my essential oils to my desmoid tumor, which was experiencing some discomfort. For the record, I rubbed in some frankincense and copaiba (along with coconut oil) on arrival and voila, no discomfort. Then I got to thinking, these oils are giving me so much relief to a lot of cancer and desmoid related side effects, that this post simply must be written. So here I am!
I'm going to start with the support for breast cancer side effects and then move on to desmoid tumor. Something for everyone? Not really, but I know some of you will be very interested to hear this.
This is not my typical blog post, but I am busy busting through blocks right now so here goes.
There is an incredible offer on doTERRA right now where you can save hundreds of $ in your first couple of months. Plus if you order right, you get an extra Frankincense worth $114 RRP.
I found myself sending an email to a few of my nearest and dearest who I know will at some point invest in oils. Then I thought, this has a lot of information, I should really share! So here is the details on some of the ways you can get started with doTERRA. I've included the best value (especially best value through to end of Jan 15, 2018), as well as cheapest, and a couple in between.
Growing up, I was taught that the world is a place of scarcity. That we wont have enough if we don't 'behave' a certain way. Be that money, love, fun or self fulfillment, the message is the same. There simply isn't enough to go around.
My parents, whilst not perfect had their hearts in the right place. They taught me caution. Invest in the safety of property. Make sure I have my superannuation sorted. Don't expect too much of myself. Recognise, that I need to exercise delayed gratification to set myself up for success. OK that last sentence is a stretch, but it speaks to me!
As you know from my last post, I've started using and sharing doTERRA essential oils. I'm sure you could sense my enthusiasm and excitement for these products. But I have to say, two weeks later I'm here to report I've hit a new high - a high called joy.
It's been a while since I felt this 'lit up' it kind of reminds me of falling in love. How cool is that?! I use the oils all day (diffusing, flavoring, rubbing into my feet, my face, my entire body to be honest). Which is actually what this picture is of. Three of my favorite oils and some fractionated coconut oil (FCO). Every day now, I emerge from the shower, mix up a few drops of these oils with FCO and literally smooth over my entire body. It feels and smells like heaven. This week, a friend grabbed me by the arm and pulled back saying 'what is going on with your arms, they are so soft!'. Alerted to this fact, I can now tell you, oh my word, my skin has literally NEVER been softer.
It's official, I've gone and got myself a little side hustle. A passion project. An entrepreneurial endeavor- and it feels really good.
The back story. An impressive lady, Yvette (yes another me, one whom I met at a NSW Breast Cancer Foundation Ambassador training), recently got in touch. After her diagnosis and treatment, Yvette gave up her Corporate career in the music business, her home in Sydney and party fueled lifestyle and has totally reset her life. From her QLD base, she's since gone on to rise to the top of the Wellness entrepreneurial community with her business Soulpreneurs. In more recent news she expanded into the DoTerra Essential Oils business and she's absolutely loving it.
As is typical with me, after discussing my latest health issues with Yvette, I couldn't wait to get these babies into my hands. I must say, they are every bit as awesome as I hoped and I am frankly obsessed. On the frank topic, especially with frankincense! It didn't take me long at all to start researching this company and finding out how incredible it is, from their social responsibility to sourcing efficacy and of course therapeutic grade products, they are the real deal. I even like the Network Marketing aspect, particularly because th
