Cleaning House!

One of my overwhelming desires on returning home had been to throw out the entire contents of my house! There's nothing like living in a camper for 3 weeks to make you realize you have way too much stuff! Stuff of my own, kids clutter everywhere, children's clothes for them to grow in to, or that they've grown out of or to hold on to just in case lol! You kn...

Holding Space

I've been feeling pretty dark for most of the day. Ironic as it's been blue skies and sun, but my heart hurts... My instinct is always to help people- to find solutions, aids, anything to improve their situation. Well meaning advice has often spilled from my mouth. The holding of space for someone to live THEIR life and make THEIR own choices is one ...

Keep your Kids Healthy

My Boys love these and they make me feel so much better about their, at times, sketchy diets! These convenient chewable supplements are made with young children in mind. Children 4 years and older can enjoy these natural watermelon flavored supplements twice a day with meals. Encourage your children by taking the dōTERRA a2z Chewables alongside with them, a...

Summer is great for going outdoors and energizing your soul. dōTERRA’s Citrus Bliss Invigorating Blend combines the powerful essences of Wild Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Bergamot, Tangerine, and Clementine with a hint of Vanilla Absolute to form a unique and harmonious blend to bring the outdoors in. Citrus Bliss is not only nice for uplifting your...

This is just the beginning...

I'm sitting here, on the plane home from Salt Lake City, trying to process all that I've seen and heard over the last few days at the dōTERRA 2017 convention. I love plant healing- so much so that I did the first year of a degree in Herbal medicine before we moved to the States. I'm passionate about people knowing their options and being empowered with ...

How do we find our thoughts?

You know how it goes. You get lost in the whirlwind of the days - in the routine, or lack of it. You don't have time to consider how your feeling amongst the cries for snacks and the arguments about who has which toy. Your morning caffeine has barely kicked in before some 'crisis' or another arises. Time in the day marches on and you're experiencing emot...

Imperfection and the Pursuit of Truth

I'm pretty good at gathering my thoughts and putting them down on paper (or screen), but doing videos is a bit scary. They are so raw. What if I say the wrong thing and upset someone?! What if people think I'm an idiot?! What if what I'm saying has no value?! All the what if's!! But THAT is the exact hurdle this video is about - accepting imperfection and un...

Taming the storms

I saw an excellent post on Facebook yesterday about toddlers/young kids and not joining their chaos. I am learning this big time with Faolán, our youngest cub. He is a storm of emotions so intense they blow him and everyone within a certain radius away. It’s so hard not to get caught up in this whirlwind- I mean, my boy has LUNGS! It can be embarras...

Time to stop

Isn’t it funny how sometime fate steps in when we’re doing too much! This trip has been a wonderful flurry of travel, wondrous sights and special family moments, but we’re all a little weary – especially the kids. So, when we left this morning, intending to get a 6 hour drive under our belts and the engine on Truckasaurus started ma...

Versatile with a view!

We are having a blast up here in Yellowstone. Still no bear or wolf sightings, but the buffalo cause daily road blocks! As ever, I’m loving my dōTERRA stuff on this trip. The TerraShield is warding off the plentiful mosquitoes and I’ve also discovered the on guard hand wash makes a fabulous shaving foam! Also thankful to have my lavender, frank...

Flowers in the wilderness

Last night we stayed at Boysen state park. A tranquil spot with hardly another soul staying. We practically had the whole place to ourselves. The flowers that grew there had me astounded. Blooming and fragrant in what seemed dry ground and I’m sure the weather here can be unforgiving. That’s one of my many fascinations with plants. They thrive an...

Finally, mountains…

At last we see them. The blue ridges of the mountains, far off in the distance. I’m glad we drove this way; we got some small appreciation for the vastness of the country and had time to ponder the expanse and the plains. Following some way along the Oregon trail we considered the hardships and the epic travels of the first Immigrant settlers, really...

Double Nickel NE

Double Nickel campground is an oasis on route 80, Nebraska. We’d had a long drive and were happy to arrive. We would have loved more time to use the facilities- they have a pool and mini golf, but sadly we pulled in a little late. To our surprise there was an water advisory on the campground information – all the farmland about means elevated n...

aromabus takes to the road!

The long awaited road trip has finally commenced! We made it to Illinois last night despite coming through a crazy storm which looked and felt like tornado territory! I always find it crazy to think that it’s a beautiful blue sky day just up above the clouds. aromabus is a happy wee van. Farran stated that she reminds him of home- because he loves h...

Collecting my thoughts

So we made it back – a bit of a delay on an already long wait in Paris – but there are worse places to be stuck! I was so happy, relieved and rather tearful to see my husband and eldest son waiting for us at the airport. I’ll be leaning heavily on the supplements and oils to get me through the jet lag over the next couple of days! Trying ...

Windmills (and kangaroos?!) in Amsterdam

So I have to share a few photos with you from my very quick run this morning. Every time I get out early on a morning like this, I wonder why I don’t make the time to do it every day. Sleep is over rated. Just kidding, sleep is never over rated! To my friends in the US – check out these nettles and the beautiful horse chestnut/conker tree ̵...

dōTERRA EU Convention – Amsterdam

dōTERRA started 9 years ago (ish) in the USA. It is EXPLODING in Europe! I am so excited to be here on the ground witnessing people coming together from all the different nations across Europe  – united by a common love and purpose. On a mission to educate people, so they can make choices for themselves and their families. Helping people on their jou...
