How my guests ended up sleeping on my kitchen table

I had family visit this weekend and yes two of them ended up on my kitchen table. Before I continue with this blog I just want to emphasise that at no point when I have guests do I put my essential oil hat on and bang on about their benefits (that usually only happens after a few glasses of wine). Seriously though for fear of putting off my friends and family, I only offer advice when asked or I just can’t help myself 😉

Anyway, back to the kitchen table. They asked about oils for neck pain, caused by occupational stresses, because both were close family members I offered them an aromatouch session on the kitchen table. Full explanation on what this is click here.

It’s those moments when I get ‘wow’ from people on how doTERRA’s oils have a fantastic effect on them reminds me of why I share my experiences on this blog site.

Aromatouch is a truly relaxing sensation but it’s not until after or sometimes the next day that the true benefits appear. Both family members slept great that night and both could not believe the improvement not only on their necks, but their overall feeling of wellness. That is the true power of doTERRA oils, these are therapeutic grade oils and not just your average oil burning variety.

There is one essential oil out of the eight that I applied during the aromatouch session that I feel helped my guests. The Deep Blue Blend – research on the effect that Deep Blue has on human cells showed that pre-inflamed skin cells were exposed to Deep Blue essential oil blend while others were left alone.

I know this sounds a bit pushy, but I had another guest visiting with his son this weekend (yes full house!!) who like me suffers from asthma, I diffused peppermint oil into his bedroom before he went to bed and let it run for an additional two hours. He noticed a significant change not only in his breathing quality, but also his young son who was suffering from a cold.

I like to think I spoil my guests!

Choose to Diffuse Challenge

Forbes rated event management one of the most stressful jobs in 2016, taxi drivers came in as no.10 and military personnel at no.1. It seemed fitting to invite a very busy team of event managers and coordinators from a company called Best Case Scenario to participate in SpOIL You’s ‘Choose to Diffuse’ Challenge.

The team based in Sydney, Australia were keen to participate, the founder of Best Case Scenario, Luli Adeyemo has a personal interest in health as well as a responsibility to her clients to ensure her team are kept motivated, engaged and happy. She was very much up for the challenge. She chose to purchase the doTERRA Petal diffuser along with Peppermint, Lavender and Lemon essential oils.

The diffuser’s ultra-fine mist reaches up to 330 sq. feet, so the size was ideal.  Once the essential oils and diffuser reached the Sydney office a ‘Diffuser Champion’ was appointed, someone who was responsible for turning on the diffuser, and ensuring the following guidelines were followed.

Overall results
The results were positive, with 75% of employees indicating they would choose to continue to diffuse essential oils in the workplace once the challenge finished.

Employee Reaction
75% of employees reacted positive to very positive to diffusing essential oils in their office. The remainder were neutral.

Companies are embracing many holistic approaches as another way to reduce healthcare costs and are offering on-site options such as mindfulness, meditation, yoga and stress management programs to reduce stress, decrease absenteeism, and help employees face their health issues and challenges with a different perspective. Essential oil diffusing is just one of the low-cost elements that could be incorporated in an office or company wellness program.

Rethink your sports drink

I regularly go to workout classes and I always meet someone who dislikes the taste of water, they say it’s boring, dull etc… We are all aware of the benefits of water and most of us don’t drink enough.  In the past I have always added a dash of cordial or an ‘energy’ tablet to my sports drinks.  I stopped once I realised how much sugar they contained – after I discovered this diagram from Safefood:  M9403_Safefood_Drinks_Chart_V9

Then I came across doTERRA lemon oil after an aroma touch technique session,  I was offered a glass of water with one drop of lemon oil to help with hydration.  I was pleasantly surprised, not just by the taste but the smell of the water, it was invigorating and fresh.  It contained just one drop of doTERRA’s pure lemon oil.  It was beautifully potent because the oil is cold pressed from the rind of the lemon.  So not only did it add zest to my water, it was infused with Vitamin C.   I invested in a bottle, and a year later, it’s still a staple in my sports drinks and as part of my drinking water work routine!

For just 15. 58 euro a bottle it contains 400 drops, that’s a lot of flavour and drops packed into a 15ml bottle.  It’s small enough to put in your bag, pocket or leave on your desk.  Order a bottle from http://www.mydoterra.com/spoilyou

The added bonus is that my daughters also enjoy it in their water during the day!
