My Essential Oil journey

I have meant to create this post for quite a while.
My life has changed so much in the last couple of years when I became interested in natural medicine.
I discovered Essential Oils at a time when I was trying to address some health issues and was immediately impressed with how fast they worked.
Since then, it has become one of the most empowering tools I have to keep my family well and healthy and I’m glad to be part of this popular growing movement.
Sharing the benefits of oils has also become my main source of income.
It is only natural that I share here on my blog about my journey.
Teaching classes and mentoring takes a lot of my time and I feel so blessed with the new relationships that it has led to in my life.
Essential oils are one of the easiest, natural, safe, and cheap remedies available and I have become passionate about sharing this gift of the earth.DMb6-03-MIX-SVY-BIZ_tV-6

We have our favorite oils that we use daily.

  • Lavender for all things calming, sleeping, burns etc
  • Digestive blend for stomach upsetProtective blend for immune support
  • Protective blend for killing germs and immune support
  • Peppermint for healthy respiratory function and reducing temperature
  • Lemon to cleanse and purify
  • Oregano to fight infection
  • Soothing blend for pain, inflamation, & muscle soreness
  • Frankincense for immune support and cellular health
  • Melaleuca as a first aid for the skin
  • Respiratory blend maintains airways and breathing
  • And of course the incredible mood uplifting blends.

You name it, there is an oil for anything that comes up.

My Favorite Essential Oil Company

I chose doTERRA essential oils for many reasons.
They are a company committed to the purest, safest oils in the world, a healthy lifestyle, and helping millions around the world with their Healing Hands foundation.
doTERRA carefully selects and sources their oils from all over the world.
Research has shown that plants grown in their indigenous environment yield much better results because the growing season, elevation, climate, moisture, soil, & ph all factor into the quality and potency of the oil.
For example Lavender is indigenous to France.
The high altitudes result in the plant having higher ester and sesquiterpene alcohol content. You simply can’t duplicate the rocky Mediterranean growing conditions anywhere else.
And lemon.. although lemon oil can be acquired from the US, Argentina and other places for a much lower price, doTERRA chooses Sicily, because the salty, humid air from the Mediterranean Sea and the rocky mountainous terrain create a superior and sweeter lemon oil.
Harvesting is also important. doTERRA only harvests the therapeutic part of the plant.
Another example is helichrysum. They only use the flowering tops of this plant.
Many producers will harvest the leaves & stalks as well to increase their profitability.
This completely changes the composition of the plant.
Every bottle is 100% pure, without any fillers, artificial ingredients, pesticides or contaminants. Every batch of oil is verified by 3rd party testing laboratories and undergoes seven different testing procedures. The smell and potency of the oil is unsurpassed.
You can smell the difference the first time you take off the lid.
The science behind the oils:

3 Ways to Use doTERRA Essential Oils

There are three ways to use essential oils.


  • One of my favorite ways to use essential oils is in my diffuser.  A diffuser makes it easy to get the oils into the air quickly when you want to kill germs, open airways, or just set a mood in your home.
  • Simply remove the lid from a bottle and inhale the aroma.


  • Essential oils can be directly applied to your skin on the head, feet, behind the ears, chest, wrists, back of neck or wherever you are experiencing pain (keep it out of the eyes nose & ears).
  • I apply Peppermint oil for to the head for head tension, The protective blend on the  bottoms of feet for seasonal threats, and lavender to soothe fussy little ones.

*I only recommend the purity of doTERRA oils for this method and never more than 1-3 drops in a 3-4 hr time period. 

  • You can add a drop of lemon to a glass of water for a gentle detox, and also just because it’s refreshing!
  • Some people like to drop add a couple of drops of the Protective blend to a glass of water to support a healthy immune system or the Digestive blend for stomach upset.
  • Another option is to place a few drops into an empty gelatin capsule and swallow with a glass of water.

Willow at 7 mo.

It’s been a gorgeous Autumn!
Willow loved the leaves! She got carried away giggling when the kids jumped in their piles.
She can get around in her walker now and likes to follow all the action. Never a dull moment here!
For Halloween we got into storybook character as Little bo peep and her little lamb. Clay was a hungry fox.

Willow at 6 mo.

Our Willow is 6 mo. old.
I miss my teeny newborn, but this age is so fun.
I can’t believe I’ve been cuddling, nursing, and staring into this little face for 6 mo.
For this milestone I wanted to capture her sleeping.
There is nothing sweeter. Surprisingly, even with this loud & wild household she is a very light sleeper, it’s best to whisper and tiptoe around her crib.
She can sit up for small periods of time, but is the most happy in her jumper and especially being held.
She is eating infant cereal mixed with veggies. Her chatter is sounding a little more like words. She weighs over 17lbs and with her wiggling.. feels heavy fast. The other day Autumn said “Mom! Take her. Willow is so heavy. My arms need a breath!”
I agree. :) I should be amazon woman.. but mostly my back just hurts.

School portraits 2015

©ML family.Taking a moment to document my crew.
It’s hard to believe I have one in high school.. how is that possible??
Garrett is quiet, funny & a hard worker.
His hobbies include making art & movies.

He’s excited about driving and practices as often as possible with his Grandad.
Autumn is sensitive, thoughtful & an amazing help to me.
She makes the sweetest cards & gifts.
We still read our Laura Ingalls Wilder books together each night. It’s our snuggly special time.
Clay is my heart breaker. His happy laugh & big grin are the best.

He is very active and likes to practice his saxophone, math quizzes, & funny books.

He still loves hugs & kisses as much as I do.
I’ve said it before, but motherhood is the greatest journey.
I’m blessed to be the one that guides their heart & encourages their dreams.
Our moments today are our children’s memories. Let’s make them good!

Willow at 5 mo.

Willow brings so much sunshine & joy to our lives. :)
Each month goes by so quickly!
At 5 mo. she is rolling, cooing, grabbing, laughing
& always sticking her little tongue out.
I got in a sewing mood for her portrait this month.
For the jumper, I used some of my vintage floral feed sack stash
and made a more tailored version of the simple pillowcase dress.
