Lavender essential oil

Lavender essential oil is a must-have in every home. It's widely used for its calming and relaxing qualities. In addition, it soothes skin irritations, helps skin to recover and eases muscle tension. Inhaling lavender promotes relaxation and a restful sleep. This is one of the oils that I carry with me at all times. Read about 34 more uses for lavender in this link.

Drinking liquid sunshine

I love adding a drop of lemon essential oil to my water. It's refreshing, uplifting, energizing and detoxifying. It's like drinking liquid sunshine!

Essential Yoga Workshops

So excited about Robin Penney Yoga's upcoming Essential Yoga Workshops at Nova Yoga. Yoga and essential oils - two of my favourite things!!

And, I'm especially excited that Robin and I will be collaborating during the workshop - Robin will be teaching the class, while I'll be helping to introduce the essential oils. Love it!

Essential oils have been used for therapeutic and holistic health purposes throughout history to stimulate healing and enhance overall wellness. When incorporated into a yoga and meditation practice, essential oils can elevate awareness and provide a deeper connection through the senses.  Each workshop will include an introduction to the history and use of essential oils, and an explanation of the benefits of specific oils used throughout the class.  dōTERRA oils will be used throughout the practice via diffused aroma, internally by adding to water, and through application to the body.

Session #1: Gratitude: See the Gift in Your Obstacles
Saturday, October 25th, 2:00-3:30pm

This workshop teaches radical gratitude as we celebrate the month of Thanksgiving. Working with various backbends and heart openers, this all-levels vinyasa practice incorporates essential oils chosen to support living in the present moment and reminders of abundance and alignment. Featured oils: rosemary, wild orange, lemon, ginger, and sandalwood.

Session #2: Release: Surrender and Receive
Saturday, November 15th, 2:00-3:30pm

This all-levels gentle vinyasa flow features heart and hip openers and deep forward folds to increase energy and calm the mind, while the oils assist in emotional healing, releasing stagnant energy, feelings or blockages. The combination of oils and yoga provide a cathartic experience to create emotional balance. Featured oils: frankincense, wild orange, and various dōTERRA essential oil blends.

Session #3: Compassion: Cultivate Kindness
Saturday, December 13th, 2:00-3:30pm

Holidays often are a time when our cups become so full that there is little room for anything new. Yoga and essential oils can be a powerful catalyst for emptying our cup to make room to receive. This all-levels dynamic hip-opening sequence is combined with seasonal oils to make room to receive the many gifts of the season, including self-care and compassion. Featured oils: peppermint, frankincense, white fir, thyme, and wild orange.

Space is limited. All levels of experience are welcome.

Please bring a glass, ceramic, or stainless steel water bottle to the class.

Melissa (lemon balm) essential oil

Melissa (lemon balm) supports a healthy immune system, calms tension and nerves, and addresses stomach discomfort. It's a very powerful essential oil and one that I use when our family needs a boost to our immune system or emotional health.

Co-impact sourcing

Yet another reason to love doTERRA....

Not only are the oils blessing the health and lives all over the world, doTERRA is providing jobs and economic opportunity everywhere. 

"Co-impact sourcing is a term that embodies sustainability from the ground to consumer. doTERRA oils are sourced from native regions with partner farms that have generations of experience and reputations of handling their product with passion and perfection. Only doTERRA works with farmers in their indigenous regions to LIFT the economy by working to bring fare prices for their products. doTERRA demands the highest quality oils and sustainable farming practices which insures our valuable oils will be available long into the future. doTERRA does this by funding state of the art distillation equipment, building schools and improving local medical facilities. doTERRA offers producers a billion dollar annual customer channel. No other company has this type of market penetration. Other companies seek to have their own farms (which leads to limited accountability, limited experience, limited environmental control, massive increases in overhead, robs the existing communities of much needed economy), or they wholesale through middlemen attempting to drive the prices to poverty levels for farmers (which depletes the local economy and forces poverty conditions in many indigenous regions). I am ecstatic to be a doTERRA distributor and represent the most fantastic, life changing products on planet Earth! I know that all my oil purchases are benefiting the ENTIRE supply chain and not robbing the bottom to enrich the top." - Rod Richardson

And through doTERRA's Healing Hands program, doTERRA is building schools and hospitals and building wells for clean drinking water in areas that need them.
