Reinventing Healthcare

Do you know how much money our country currently spends on healthcare annually?  

Do you know how much your household spends on healthcare?

Where is that money going?  To insurance, co-pays, medication?  

I consider health insurance a blessing, as well as the access I have to medical professionals and modern medicine.  However, I am also grateful for the fact that I have other options that empower me as a mother, help keep my family healthy, and cost us much less than multiple doctor's visits and prescriptions.

Please join me as we discuss our country's current healthcare system and our role in empowering our own families to prevent and treat health issues as well as how to save money on healthcare expenses.   

Each class will be one hour, leaving time at the end for questions.  Please choose the one that best fits your schedule.

- Some have asked about how to manage allergies during this itchy-nose season.  The combination is peppermint, lavender and lemon... a drop of each in some water or in a capsule works great.  If you are dealing with small children, layer them on the bottoms of their little feet to conquer allergy symptoms.

- Cypress oil is 10% off this month.  I have already heard wonderful stories about how cypress, combined with lemongrass, is diminishing spider veins.  Yea for summer legs!  Cypress is great for circulatory issues and is beneficial in reducing cellulite, muscle cramps, ovarian cysts, scar tissue and strengthening connective tissue.  This is a powerful oil that has numerous valuable properties.  It should, however, be used with caution during pregnancy.

- Last weekend my husband participated in the St. George Ironman competition.  He has been using Deep Blue regularly after his training sessions and was looking forward to his "Deep Blue massage" following his race.  Between using the oil and his consistency with the Lifelong Vitality Supplements, he had a quick recovery and was only moving like an old man for a day or two following the event.  While Deep Blue is wonderful for muscles that are working out regularly, it has many other valuable properties.  The wintergreen gives it cortisone-like properties and is beneficial for arthritis, rheumatism, tendinitis and any other discomfort that is related to the inflammation of bones, muscles and joints.  The other components in Deep Blue are helpful for sprains, bruises, damaged tissue, low blood pressure, circulatory issues and inflammatory stress.  There is a reason this is doTERRA's number-one selling oil!  It is available in both a 5ml bottle as well as a 10ml roll-on. 

- One other oil I would recommend for summer is Melaleuca.  I am grateful for this oil whenever we are in less-than-sanitary places ( think: public swimming pools, amusement parks, indoor play places).  A little on the bottoms of feet will help keep any icky diseases away from your home.  It is a strong oil when it comes to conquering foot fungus, rashes, ticks, warts, and sunburns.  It is a wonderful healing oil for cuts, wounds and other skin infections.  Melaleuca is also the secret weapon for ear infections, which can be prevalent in the summer months when children spend a lot of time swimming.  A little on a bit of cotton placed inside the ear will ease the pain and take care of the infection.  Cheaper and easier than multiple rounds of antibiotics and tubes!


Thank you all for being with me on this journey.  Your questions about how to use essential oils help me learn so much, I appreciate them!  Please let me know how I can serve you!
