Healthiest School Year Ever!

Melissa Carter presented some great information and fun recipes in our online class today.   She noticed a big change in the health of her household integrating essential oils last year and is a fun lady to listen to.

If you are in school, or have kids in school, you’ll want to listen in. She shared lots of fun ways to use On Guard protective blend- calling it her #1 resource for a healthy school year.

Check out this fun recipe for On Guard Popcorn:

1 cup unsweetened coconut

1 cup almond slivers

Pop the popcorn and pour into a large bowl. Heat the coconut oil and blend in the maple syrup until combined. Add the essential oils. Set aside. Add the next three ingredients. Pour coconut oil mixture over the popcorn and stir in. Season with salt to taste.

Thanks Melissa!

EO Love Feature: Lisa Barge



Today we’re featuring Lisa Barge, from Sherwood, Oregon, who is such a beautiful, delightful person that we are really excited for you to get to know her better!

  1. Lisa is: I grew up in a rural farming community in Kansas and appreciate the work ethic and values that I was taught there. After pursuing a degree in Ag Economics, I spent the next several years traveling the country, working for John Deere in marketing and employee development. During this time I discovered my love for travel and the spa industry and after marrying my sweet husband, Jake, I felt it was time for a change in pace of life. My next chapter in life included becoming a licensed esthetician. This is where I quickly developed a passion for a holistic approach to skin and wellness. It was here that I was first introduced to dōTERRA and fell in love immediately. But more on that later!
    What I love: (in no particular order)
    - Music: For as long as I can remember, I have loved music! It’s such a big part of my life, and I kind of think it’s my “fuel”. Put great music on and I can take on the world! My perfect day would be beautiful weather, sitting on a patio or lawn with live music and my family and friends. (Or a spa day, but that kind of goes without saying, right?)
    - College football on a cool fall day! I love the excitement and gathering with friends and family.
    - Love: That’s right, I LOVE love! I’ve always loved love, but after marrying my husband I love it even more! Add on top of that my sweet daughter and I am complete mush!
    - A kind heart: I love those people that you meet that you can just FEEL have a kind heart. I just want to give them a SQUEEZE!! Which brings me to HUGS! I love Hugs.
    - A quick witted sense of humor: Love it. I love making people laugh and I love being surprised or caught off guard by a wicked sense of humor!
    - Philanthropic/Humanitarian efforts: About 5 years ago Jake and I went to Sierra Leon on a Humanitarian trip. It changed my life. I believe we are here to take care of and love one another. It’s one of many reasons dōTERRA is such a good fit for me. I can’t wait to do more both locally and abroad!
    - Community: As you can tell by my other “loves” I thrive on doing things that bring people together and have a sense of community. I do, however, have a shy side of my personality that sometimes makes this a challenge.
    - My husband: There is not another person on Earth that is better suited to be my husband. I am so very thankful for him and appreciate his unconditional love.
    - Our daughter: She brings me indescribable JOY! There of course have been some challenging times as a new mom, but nothing compared to the overwhelming love that I feel for her!
    - Our Family: I come from the “Fried Chicken after Church on Sunday”, “Your family are your friends”, “Family Reunions are FUN” kind of Family and wouldn’t change it for the world!
    Our Friends: I’ve been blessed beyond measure with wonderful friends. I can’t say enough about my friends and family.
    What I’m working on:
    - Letting go of expectations of perfectionism: I find myself working on this over and over again…if only I could perfect it! :)
    - Getting better at taking care of myself again.
    - Worrying less about what others think, and working more on making sure that myself and my family are happy and healthy!
  2. How Lisa fell in love with doTERRA essential oils: So I mentioned I fell in love with dōTERRA oils immediately right? However for some reason I didn’t take the leap with the IPC account at my initial introduction with dōTERRA. I know now that it was so I could be open to the call a year or so later from my dear friend Kamille Breuer that went a little like this: Hey Lisa, you know those oils that we’ve talked about. dōTERRA, those are the ones. We’re doing this. I mean, you don’t have to, but we are. Ok, I may be paraphrasing a bit, but I was glad to be in a position to join Kamille in this venture. At the time, however, I wasn’t certain about the business aspect of it. I was working as an esthetician and shortly after enrolling I found out that Jake and I were expecting our first baby, so I didn’t think the business was something I needed to be adding to my plate. I also had doubts about the network marketing business aspect of it. One, I was worried that I would need to be hard core sales. That wasn’t my nature, and I am very turned off by that idea and so thankful it’s not the case! Two, I honestly was worried about what other people would think about me doing network marketing. Then dōTERRA convention 2011 came along. I honestly went to convention as an excuse to learn a little more about oils, but really to see Kamille:) To my surprise, I came home from that trip and told my husband that I might need to do this business. The change in heart really had a lot to do with the heart and mind behind dōTERRA as a company. During a presentation that Emily Wright was giving, she explained the reasoning behind why they CHOSE Network Marketing as a business model and how important the relationships were to the success of the company and IPCs. In addition, the detailed scientific information that Dr. Hill presented when talking about CPTG assured me that these oils were the best of the best! And I believe it was Rob Young that missed an afternoon/evening of convention because his daughter was playing in a big soccer game. He was there the next day and brought her on stage to celebrate their big win! I loved the focus on family! I really could go on and on about that first experience at convention! That coupled with my husbands encouragement, meant I was building a business!
  3. Lisa’s fave doTERRA essential oil/product: Sandalwood – hands down. It grounds me, comforts me, uplifts me. I call it a hug in a bottle. I love it! Favorite Product would be the Lifelong Vitality Pack. They are the most amazing supplements!
  4. In Lisa’s diffuser right now: Sandalwood and Wild Orange!
  5. Why Lisa LOVES essential oils: I love that I am empowered to take care of those that I love with a natural remedy at the tip of my fingers. That I can use these oils on my daughter and not worry about the side effects that other remedies may cause. That I can help people achieve a higher level of wellness and teach them how to feel empowered to do the same. Oh how I love these oils and products!

I am a HUGE Lisa fan!! So grateful for what a shining light she is on our team!

EO Love Feature: Melissa Carter



Today we’re featuring Melissa Carter, from Redding, California, who is a truly remarkable woman! It’s sincerely an honor to feature her today.

  1. Melissa is: I am Melissa Carter! Wife of the wonderful man named Duane Carter and mom to 11 kids from all over the world! Yes, you read that right. 11 kids! My parents were missionaries and I spent most of my childhood growing up in Africa. I came back to the USA with my twin sister to attend College and 5 years later I married my soulmate whom I met in the church choir!
    …..My life for the last 16 years has pretty much been defined by my involvement in the orphan and adoption world. It all started with an adoption of twin boys from Bulgaria and getting pregnant at the same time! We thought we had our family completed but God had other plans! Surprise! So began the journey of loving and caring for more children who were older and/or had special needs. Our newest daughter, age 6 arrived to us in July 2013. If you are interested, you can find out way more about our family at http://oneeggshortofadozen.blogspot.com.
    …..My life is like a very multi colored ribbon that is not exactly tied up in a pretty little bow. Its more like an unfinished woven blanket that sometimes looks messy! My hobbies and my life work are intermingled and it hard to know where to start to tell you about me!
    …..In my previous life I was a master cake artist and caterer but that was 10 + years ago. My health declined and forced me out of the business but I still to this day love cooking and baking.
    …..Because I had to have a creative outlet, I took up watercolors and still paint to this day. Painting is the thing I LOVE to do! It relaxes me and challenges me. I have recently experimented using essential oils in my underpaintings as I believe art should be a spiritual and emotional experience. I was pleased with the result. Even days after my paintings were completed, they smelled of the aromas I had put on them. My next experiment will be to paint while the oils are in a diffuser. I always paint with Soaking Worship music and I think the essential oils diffusing will add another dimension to my creative process. My art website is in a makeover but you can visit it at http://kdcarter.wix.com/melissacarterart
    …..Other divisions of my life include, networking in the Orphan and Adoptive world, helping parents though issues that their adopted kids’ traumas bring up both in the parents and children, advocating to abolish sex trafficking, ministering to those who work in sex trafficking day in and day out, and training others to work in aftercare for sex trafficking. I love to travel overseas to minister or have fun! My future plans are to finish the two books Duane and I are writing to aid adoptive parents in therapeutic parenting and to be a speaker/coach for adoptive parents struggling in their lives. Duane and I are ordained Inner Healing Ministers and certified in Beyond Consequences, Logic and Control therapy/lifestyle as trainers. We just received our certification as trainers with I. Dignify to be able to work in the arena of sex trafficking and to train aftercare givers of kids that are rescued. I am a certified chaplain as well. I spend my time just about everywhere! It can get tiring and draining trying to manage it all but I am learning to take care of me , physically, emotionally and spiritually so I can be around for the long haul and accomplish everything I’m dreaming of – no more orphans and no more sex trafficking.
  2. How Melissa fell in love with doTERRA essential oils: In my past, like I said my health had been bad and I had suffered for over 15 years with Fibromyalgia and another autoimmune disease called AS. In the last 5 years I was healed from both and have been on the recovery road to gain my health back. My life as a mom to kids with past traumas is pretty stressful emotionally, physically, and mentally and I felt that there had to be something more out there to help me and them on our various roads to restoration. I had 2 specific prayers last year. #1 Restoration of my family’s health holistically that was not status quo and #2 outside of the box emotional healing techniques for my kids and other adoptive families that were beyond just behavior modification and medication.
    …..Then one day an ad popped up with Casey Sollock’s face and She Shines Wellness on my Facebook and a couple of my friends had liked her. So I clicked and what I read gave me hope for myself. Answer to prayer #1. I joined Casey’s 10 day eat clean challenge and though it was hard, I made it through and felt so much better. Then she offered the 90 day wellness challenge and that was when I was introduced to Doterra Essential Oils as my sign up included a little purse sample packet! My heart got excited! Could these oils be the answer I was looking for, for prayer #2? I felt strongly this was my answer.
    …..But convincing my husband who is a Pediatrician was another matter. LOL! I convinced him to let me try to the oils temporarily to improve my health. He agreed and I started with the Family Physician Kit. After a few weeks, he watched as the reflux that I had had for 10 years disappeared completely. (Peppermint) The kids were not catching everything that went around school (On Guard) and their emotional behavior was improved (Elevation, Wild Orange, Balance and Lavender). Then he himself became the recipient of Digest Zen. Our family’s health improvements so impressed him that he asked me to make business cards to give out to his patients who desire holistic approaches! So began our love of doTERRA Essential Oils.
  3. Melissa’s fave doTERRA essential oil/product: This is hard! Frankincense and the Deep Blue Rub, Balance and On Guard.
  4. In Melissa’s diffuser right now: Nothing! :( I haven’t gotten a diffuser yet! but if I had one it would be Elevation
  5. Why Melissa LOVES essential oils: I love Doterra Essential Oils because they have allowed my family to start living life to the fullest! We are well on our way to living abundantly physically, emotionally and mentally. I also love Doterra Essential Oils because I see it as a way that I can help others discover a path to living wholly. Existing and surviving is no fun, but Living is joyous and incredible!

Wow. Isn’t Melissa so inspiring?! I snagged these pics of her family’s impromptu after-dinner dance party because I thought it captured the heart of this beautiful family and what they’re creating – a life of joy, love, and fun! So grateful for Melissa and the inspiration and incredible essential oil usage ideas she brings to our lil’ EO Fan Club! What a treat!

Makeover Your Cleaning Cabinet with Essential Oils

One of the many reasons I love essential oils is that you can do SO much with them!  They are very versatile and extremely safe. I especially love how I can CLEAN my house with them in an all-natural way, avoiding all of the nasty toxins found in the large majority of commercial cleaners. You can makeover your cleaning cabinet, too, and experience how simple it is to have a green, clean home.

We’ll be featuring LOTS of cleaning recipes coming up, so stay tuned! In the meantime, here’s a few of the main staples to use to makeover your medicine cabinet naturally:

  1. Essential Oils – Kill bacteria, germs, fungi, and mold.
  2. Baking Soda – Scrubs, whitens, deodorizes and cuts grease.
  3. Liquid Castille Soap – Vegetable-based soap commonly found in health food stores (Dr. Bronner’s is a popular brand for unscented).
  4. Vinegar – Kills germs, cuts grease, deodorizes, and dissolves mineral deposits.
  5. Borax – Disinfectant. Kills germs, bacteria, fungi, and deodorizes.

Check out this great article from doTERRA going in-depth on each one of these cleaning staples, especially highlighting all the amazing essential oils that work great for cleaning, such as cypress, eucalyptus, lavender, lemon, lime, marjoram, melaleuca, peppermint, and SO many more.

I’ve found that when I use these natural cleaners, I get MUCH better results than I ever did with my commercial cleaners. I also had never noticed the yucky film all my commercial cleaners left behind after use. Now, no film and my cleaners are so pure that I even feel great about my children helping out with the cleaning. It’s awesome!

Healthy Can Be Simple with Essential Oils

It can be totally overwhelming to try to apply all of the masses of information about health, especially taking care of any not-fun ailments that can come around. However, it doesn’t have to be overwhelming… it can be SIMPLE by using doTERRA essential oils to support your health goals!!

Our family has been using doTERRA’s essential oils for the past 4.5 years now for anything that comes up. I am a mother of 5 young children, so before using doTERRA – even in spite of using great herbs and homeopathic remedies – my kids were getting sick all of the time, spreading it to one another. I felt like we needed a punch card at the doctor’s office (1 sick child visit free for every 10 visits!!! yay!!!). However, when my husband changed jobs and we no longer had insurance, I began taking essential oils MUCH more seriously. Since that time, we haven’t needed to take any of our children to a sick child visit… for 4.5 years!  I am not exaggerating at all. I never thought we could live this way!  It’s an incredible blessing!  We are healthier than we have ever been before and it’s so DARN simple. LOVE.

Now, I want every person and every home to enjoy the liberation my family enjoys daily! I’m teaching a fun {free} online class, “Healthy Can Be Simple with Essential Oils,” next Thursday, August 15, where you can learn powerful tips and tricks to use doTERRA essential oils successfully as natural remedies and solutions for you and your family!  I would love for you to join me if your family could use safer, cheaper, more effective healthcare. SO RAD.

See you then!!

EO Love Feature: Melina Maughan



Today we’re featuring Melina Maughan, from Salt Lake City, Utah, who is a jedi at making essential oil usage FUN + super easy!

From Melina: Hello EO Love! I am so excited to be here today. I am Melina Maughan. Can I just begin by saying how much I LOVE Quinn, the mastermind behind this amazing group! This girl is smart, talented, and genuine. (thanks, Melina!! xoxo)

  1. Melina is: I am a wife to an amazing and adventurous husband, Spencer, and a mother of two active kids, Ryder, age 3 ½ and Sierra, age 21 months. I love all things natural and am continually trying to make over my house with DIY natural products, and am constantly learning and implementing a total wellness lifestyle for my family; however, dark chocolate is included in that. I love short hair and dressing in fun colors and skinny jeans. I have an efficient personality and will always try to find the best bang for my buck. I spend my days with my kids, and nights with my family. I am so fortunate to be a stay at home mom. When they are napping, I work on my fun side business, MyEssentialOilKits.com, which I created shortly after my essential oil journey began (more about that in the p.s. below). I grew up with my mother being into holistic healing, so we rarely went to the doctors anyway, and often time took homeopathic remedies instead of over the counter drugs, so I naturally am that way with my family. But there are times when I just didn’t know what to do, and my mom wasn’t around, or I doubted my instinct, so I took my kids to the doctors, only to be told they just had a virus, or they needed an antibiotic, which those just never sat well with my desires. I didn’t like that this was my ONLY option. I knew there had to be something else, something more natural…which leads us into the next question!
  2. How Melina fell in love with doTERRA essential oils: Since I was on the lookout for something that felt right, I was excited when I saw a facebook event that Quinn was having at her house; btw, I hadn’t seen her for at least 5 years or so, maybe since high school! She was presenting the MCM, how to makeover your household medicine cabinet with natural remedies! I marked my calendar and hoped that the night would stay free. I told my husband that I was most likely going to spend like $50, just so we were on the same page. Well, after the class I was SO EXCITED! I knew these essential oils were the missing piece of my natural medicine puzzle. I understood them enough to know that they really could be the only medicine I used in my home once I learned how to use them. Not only that, but they smelled Amazing! After a few months of having the oils, and not feeling much success with really knowing how to use them on our colds that we were getting every month, I knew deep down that I didn’t just buy them for their smell {because that is just expensive to use them for only that purpose}! So I kept learning about them and really teaching myself how to use them, from going to classes, researching online, and just using them in my family. After 4-5 months I really felt I had a good rhythm going and felt much more confident in using the oils to replace everything. Those were what I would go to first. Now, 1 year later, I have no over the counter medicine in my home. If someone is at my house and has a headache, well, they’ll just have to try my peppermint or pastense, or some other oil they choose! In the end, after that first class, I ended up spending way more than $50, which my husband was not very happy about. To my defense, doTERRA’s essential oils felt right to me, and I’ve never doubted my decision! Well, sooner than later my husband jumped on the train too! His testimonial is here http://www.myessentialoilkits.com/testimonials/
  3. Melina’s fave doTERRA essential oil/product: Ooh, this is a tough one for me, because I find as I begin to think about this question that I have a LOT of favorites! I’ll say that right now my top two favorite oils are Peppermint and Balance. Of course, the Lifelong Vitality is a must and has helped boost my immune system over the last couple months, and the OnGuard toothpaste is worth every penny!
  4. In Melina’s diffuser right now: Sadly, it has been Breathe and OnGuard. We’re just about over our little viral cold, which luckily only stuck around for 3 days thanks to our diligent use of the Flu Blomb and cough spray! So thankful for the diffuser to help us breathe at night when congested!
  5. Why Melina LOVES essential oils: Because they work; they make sense; and they are pure and natural, pulled directly from the earth!  I don’t have to wonder about how safe they are for my kids, or when I can take or give the next dose. I now truly feel like Doctor Mom, and Spencer is happily in training to be Doctor Dad! We feel EMPOWERED, we can take care of our family. The doctors are there for the right time and place, definitely. I am thankful for their expertise and knowledge for those times when I will need them. But for now, I feel more freedom when it comes to my family’s healthcare options, thanks to doTERRA’s pure essential oils!

We *love* Melina! She has so many great ideas that help us all use our oils even more efficiently, making us LOVE our essential oils even more! What a rock star in our lil’ EO Fan Club!

p.s. My Essential Oil Kits goes hand-in-hand with my efficient personality and my young family. For me to use my oils on a regular basis, and on my wiggly little ones, I needed to have all my recipes that I’d acquired all mixed up and readily available. Then they needed to be marked so my husband could do the same! So I created recipe kits that make it super easy to get to know how to use your oils, then how to use them on a daily basis and when you are out and about. I love to create, and this business has been so fun for me to do that, along with helping other’s learn how to use their essential oils faster. I’d love for you to check the kits out and let me know what you think. I’ve had some awesome feedback thus far, and finally have the product ready for everyone to enjoy! Oh, and because I LOVE a good deal here is one for you, 20% off your total order! Use the code FREE20% at checkout.
(Thanks Melina!! xoxo)
