And just like that Mackay’s Christmas Mega Market is over! This was our most successful market since we started back in April and how good does our new table set up look?! Best selling products were definitely the natural shaving soap bars and lipbalm packs 😍 Christmas is just around the corner.... have you got your gifts sorted? 🎁
Sooo many goodies!!! I love LRP, it’s very much like fly buys or air points so over the last couple months as I have swapped my shop and replaced personal items and cleaning products that I would normally buy from the supermarket with natural doterra products. I have been earning points that I can redeem and use to get products using the points. I am so surprised at how quickly the points add up being on the monthly loyalty program that I am already saving on my weekly shopping with a lot of our daily use items. Like toothpaste, hand wash, shampoo, conditioner, cleaning products etc... and the oils I use for lots of things that support my families health and well-being naturally. And I especially love that if I don’t have time for DIY then I have the option to buy the products already made up for me. FYI the ON Guard Concentrate Cleaner is really AMAZING!!! But it I wanted to I could make it myself too xo #doterralife#essentialoils#naturallifestyle#powerhooporewa#wellnessblogger#thisisfun
BOGO has kicked off with one of my most favourite and most used oils - Easy Air. I can’t even count all the ways the Easy Air blend takes care of my family and I, but here’s just a few: - It takes care of my tight chest. I’ve had a problem with shallow breathing for almost as long as I can remember. No more 😌
- It takes care of my daughter’s sniffles and congestion, supporting her to breathe beautifully through the night
- It takes care of my seasonal allergies, providing comfort and relief
- It took care of my husband’s blocked nose that one time that he had one 😬
- It wakes me up in the morning with a big, full, easy breath 🌞
When you purchase Easy Air today, you also get Cypress FO’ FREE!!! The Oil of Motion + Flow with a fresh, woody scent, it’s definitely one to try! I hear it’s particularly great for aiding circulation in your legs. Think long-haul air travel because who wants to arrive in Hawaii with swollen legs?! 🤨 No one, my friend, no one. Swipe over to see how you can get your hands on both these gems and if you don’t have a wholesale account, DM me or hit the link in my profile and let’s get THAT taken care of!
It's official! BOGOs start tomorrow bright and early on Monday, November 19th and “the secret” is out: BUY a 15 ml dōTERRA On Guard® receive a 15 ml dōTERRA Breathe® for FREE! 🙌🏻
These two are great together when a cold has you down, apply to feet and chest and a perfect diffusing combo!
**Stick around—every morning I’ll post the newest BOGO deal of the day. These deals only last 24 hours, so don't wait to place your order.
**Pm or comment below if you have interest or need my help!
I’ve walked past far too many glasshouses not to be thinking about beautiful bouquets today!
@mrsbottomleysflowers have such a beautiful approach, using nature to inspire, sourcing and foraging seasonal foliage and florals locally. As an added bonus, their home base in @thetanneryemporium is absolute heaven! 📷 @susannahblatchford
SO MUCH FUN! My favourite event we do every year is our Holiday Make & Take. This year did not disappoint! 🎄🎁
We had Christmas dinner flavoured entirely with essential oils that everyone raves about #sofreakinggood
🍗 Orange Honey Glazed Ham
🍗 Cranberry Sauce
🍗 Rosemary Garlic Mashed Potatoes
🍗 Pumpkin Pie Tarts
🥗 Salad with dressing
We also had a hot chocolate bar where you could add your favourite essential oils.
🍫 Cinnamon bark+
We made three gift items - doubles. One for you and one for a friend, and everyone went home with a little treat bag and recipes for all of the menu items, what we made, and more!
Everyone got iTovi scans and we unboxed my mom’s holiday catalogue order! It’s my favourite event of the year and we had such a blast putting this one together!
I love getting together with people and hearing their own experiences with these oils. The issues they’ve resolved, kids sleeping, tummy troubles and headaches gone, some mind blowing things and lots of every day issues solved using oils.
If you’ve never been to an oily gathering before, come to one! I host and teach them all the time and they’re such an informative blast. Just experiencing these oils for yourself will make you a convert.
If you’d like to come to our next oily class/event/gathering or would like to host one, DM me!
Bogo is back!!! This is buy one get one free week. Each day doTERRA will offer a new Bogo deal. Monday is buy one Easy Air and get one Cypress free!!! How exciting!!! Feel clear and calm with the minty, fresh aroma of Easy Air. Calming the senses before bed or rubbing on the chest o feet when environmental threats are high.

Planted GINGER in less than 20 seconds, left it alone for 5 months, and this is what I got (lots more where this came from)😆🌱 Keeping it Mindful 100
100 days, 100 posts about people who inspire me to live a more mindful lifestyle. 🌎💚🧘♀️🌱 .
Inspiration: My little bro, Jay @mokobun .
Get creative in the kitchen 💯 . . . . 😋
A few days ago Jay posted a super simple really yummy looking banana bread using dates as the sweetener. I hadn’t made any for a while and have lots of dates so decided to make it over the weekend. I couldn’t find his recipe so I just googled “date banana bread “ and searched a bit until I found one that Sweet Simple Vegans, Jasmine and Chris had. I made oat flour out of half oats and half Irish oats blended in my Nutribullet.
Then I decided to make a simple date caramel out of some dates and coconut cream. Then since I put some of the caramel on the banana bread and in my turmeric chai tea. It seemed like a kinda no rules type thing my little bro does because he’s a very talented chef that experiments a lot with his own recipes 😊✨. I’m not as creative but I try and a lot of the times, like this, it comes out well. (Caption still in the making. Posted because I’m at work now and don’t wanna lose it. Lol).
If I had to pick one, it would definitely be yams. I haven't tried them in years (I probably should), but I was never a fan. Since I don't eat them anyway, I wouldn't feel like I was missing out.

There was a wolf spotted on the property a couple of days ago... and just the other night I was abruptly woken from my sleep at 4 in the morning to the sound of Bobbi madly barking into the darkness of the forest. I haven’t quite had the courage to scout for tracks, as I am not sure if I want to be a voluntary victim 😬. But I am pretty sure she was barking at that wolf just in these bushes! Yikes! Mountain living at its finest 😁😱

How can you boost your immune system, fight inflammation, and promote a healthy gut?
Yep, eating red cabbage will do it all and MORE. .
Red cabbage is one of the most Vitamin C rich plants, a crucial antioxidant important in white blood cell production. It also contains the phytonutrient sulforaphane, a fancy word for inflammation killer. Finally, probiotic-rich foods like Red Cabbage support gut health by supporting the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut. .
If you want a DELICIOUS recipe for red cabbage steaks, head on over to my FOOD story highlight in my profile and bask in the glory that is red cabbage! #redcabbage#healthymealideas#veganrecipes .

Do you love farmers markets?
Now that it is getting closer to winter here there are fewer farmers markets which makes me miss them more.
Farmers markets are great for many reasons but one of my favorite reasons is I know I am supporting a local business! Supporting local businesses is great for the economy and the environment because it provides a sense of community and it promotes products in a local area which reduces emissions from imported items. Although farmers markets can be more expensive than grocery stores, it is much easier to find better quality and healthier foods. Farmers markets are also very easy to shop zero waste as they often promote bringing your own containers!
This post makes me miss them so much more! Excuse me while I go searching for some year-round farmers markets...
What is your favorite thing about farmers markets?
Client love // Eczema is not fun. It’s one of those skin concerns that doesn’t only look raw and dry, it also can feel terrible. @editseven includes the @provinceapothecary newly formulated Eczema Balm in their selection of products to help treat eczema prone skin! 💥
“This newly reformulated balm is a cult favourite of fans of this Toronto-based brand. It’s also the first product that Province Apothecary founder Julie Clark created to treat her own eczema. The balm includes colloridal oatmeal (which helps with itchiness and inflammation), zinc oxide (which also has anti-imflammatory properties) and plenty of oils to help restore that barrier.”
I seriously can’t believe I got all of these for FREE this month. Such a generous company!
Clockwise from top:
Northern Lights Black Spruce: Want to raise your vibration?? NLBS carries the highest frequency of any oil. Talk about a stellar gift! I keep this bottle on my person. Great for grounding and relaxing. Good for respiratory support too. Smells like a forest. Unique because it’s distilled from the entire tree. And these trees can withstand the greatest range of temps, more than any other tree. Grown in Young Living’s Northern Lights farm. 🌲🌲🌲 .
Myrrh: You may already know myrrh was presented to the baby Jesus, along with frankincense (which we will look at next) along with gold which many believe was actually turmeric. So they literally presented Jesus with the gift of health. I use it most in my angel tears face serum, which is seriously magic in a roller bottle.
Christmas Spirit: This is our favorite oil to use during the holidays. We diffuse it in place of scented candles. It’s great for making a room spray, carpet deodorizer or you can add a drop to a cotton ball and place it in the air vent of your car. 🎄
Sacred Frankincense: This is my favorite to gift anyone battling a terminal illness. It is truly something special and needed in all households. I have applied it to a couple of larger spots that concerned me and that I acquired by spending too much time in the sun when I was younger. One is GONE and the other is much smaller. 🙌🏻 .
Nutmeg: This one is key to making my pumpkin spice blend that I diffuse all October and November. 🍁
I haven’t been this giddy about YL freebies in ages. 😍
