B I O L O G Y ✨ My newest dōTERRA customer is a busy man with a high-pressure job. Like so many of us, he struggles with stress and anxious feelings. Also like many of us, he was skeptical that essential oils could make a difference (skeptics are MY PEOPLE btw! 💕)
.
When we spoke earlier this week, these were the words he used to describe his experience using dōTERRA oils: “It does more to your brain than you anticipate.” And it’s similar to the feedback I hear every day; these oils work very simply and deeply to soothe, uplift, console, energize, and cleanse.
.
Why does this still surprise us? I think we are conditioned to believe that our biology is somehow distinct from the rest of the natural world. Somehow in our modern culture, nature has become recreation, or something to preserve in a museum.
.
But nothing could be further from the truth. An abundance of scientific evidence now confirms what humans have known for millennia, that our health is deeply linked to the natural world: plants, soil, air, water. In our toxic modern world, with polluted air, processed foods, dead soil, and dirty water, it has become a matter of life and death.
.
So of course essential oils have the ability to affect our brains and bodies. We need natural solutions today, more than ever. It’s biology, pure and simple 💫🌿✨💚

Written in 1958 by a medical doctor in Vermont, these words are eerily prescient. What Dr Jarvis could not have known was how an epidemic of chronic disease would sweep our society as a modern day plague: type 2 diabetes, mental illness, cardiovascular disease, cancer, arthritis, dementia, and more.
.
As a society, we need our physicians to be as expert in health care as they are in disease care. Changes in medical education and practice are happening far too slowly.
.
We also need to take greater responsibility for our own lifestyle choices. Free online resources mean that ignorance is no longer a valid excuse.
.
As a doctor and historian, I’d like to think we are willing to learn from wise physicians of the past 💫🌿✨

This photo gives me the warm and fuzzies. Not because I love Hugh Jackman (although who doesn’t?!) but because it reminds me of the magical moment when he stepped on stage at the dōTERRA global convention as our keynote speaker and performer 💫
.
As extraordinary as his singing is 🎤, and as giddy as we were when we learned that he and his wife are crazy about dōTERRA oils 🙌, what really lit up our packed arena was when he shared his heart for humanitarian work and social justice 🙏😭
.
The text in this image matters to me because I’m worried about men’s health: shorter lifespans, higher rates of cardiovascular disease, worse mortality rates for many cancers, higher risk of substance abuse, poor emotional health and higher rates of suicide 😔
.
I’m grateful to have plenty of men in my family and team who are stepping into empowered lifestyles and loving their oils. The more we can lift up men who are comfortable being open about wellness — body, mind, and spirit — the more progress we will make with men’s health worldwide.
.
So here’s to @thehughjackman and all the men of #broterra 💪💜✨

SLEEP is incredibly powerful for our health, especially children 😴 Sleep is when our bodies heal and repair, when learning is consolidated, when detoxification pathways are dialed up, and when our emotional health is calibrated.
.

I’m delighted to have been invited to contribute to my friend Lyndsey Hookway’s sleep coaching course for baby, child, and health professionals. I’ll be talking about how health conditions can affect sleep... plus a few tips for using oils to help promote good sleep for the entire family!

Rise and shine! ☀️🌿✨ This fabulous trio graced my home this morning as we continue to emerge from an 8 hr jet lag 😴 Diffuse these three oils to help the entire family get moving (cheerfully! 😬)
.
✨ Lime will cheer even the crankiest owl
✨ Cypress promotes good energy and flow
✨ Rosemary boosts mental alertness .
Best of all, dōTERRA members can get rosemary for FREE this month in Europe, while N. American members can receive lime for FREE! 🙌🏻
.
Because there is only so much coffee I can drink... 😳☕️ .

Fresh starts 💫🌿✨ Today is the first day of a new school year, and its the first day of “proper” school for my youngest. This is the blend i diffused downstairs while we got ready:
🌿 Spearmint for gentle invigoration and focus
🍊 Wild orange to promote a positive outlook
🍋 Lime for confidence and energy .
The power of the olfactory system — our sense of smell — is wildly underestimated in the modern world. Our olfactory receptors are incredibly complex and very closely linked to our emotional and memory centers in the brain 🧠 so it’s not surprising that aromatic plants can make a significant impact on our emotional wellbeing 💫
.
What is your go-to essential oil  blend for momentous days?

Becoming a Waldorf mama allowed me to discard an old story about myself. For years, I’ve told myself that I’m not creative... that I’m not capable of making beautiful things with my hands.
.
Quite simply, my boys’ teachers have taught me that everyone is an artist. ANYONE can learn to knit and sew. EVERYONE can experience the joy of making beautiful, useful gifts (especially in the era of YouTube!!). These once-commonplace skills are rapidly being lost in our culture, and to our detriment; an abundance of evidence reveals that knitting, crafting, and sewing are wonderful for stress relief, resilience, and good mental health 🙌🏻 .
Tomorrow, my youngest son will start Class 1, so here is the story cushion, pencil case, and eurythmy slipper bag we made together with so much love 💙 He’ll be learning to knit by himself next week! 💪🏻

CLEANING WITH ESSENTIAL OILS 🌿 As awareness grows about the known harms of our household cleaning products, more and more of us are choosing to improve the air quality in our homes by switching to essential oils ✨
.
Cleaning with oils is ridiculously simple, and it’ll save you £$€, too. Start with an amber glass bottle and trigger spray. Add a tablespoon of On Guard cleaning concentrate (or 3-4 tablespoons of white vinegar). Then add 10-20 drops of essential oils and top up with water. Shake gently and you’re ready to go! .
Here are my favourite oil combos for cleaning:
.
🌱 Rosemary + lime
🌱 Lemongrass + lavender
🌱 Eucalyptus + lemon
🌱 Bergamot + basil
🌱 Peppermint + melaleuca
.
Each of these oils has powerful cleansing properties, and the aromas will leave your home smelling incredible (AND lift your mood! 🙌).
.
Give yourself permission to ditch those commercial cleaning products TODAY. It’s one of the easiest ways to improve the health of your home 💪🌿✨

RAINBOW BABY 🌈 Yesterday, I visited a friend from high school who just had a baby after experiencing a series of tragic pregnancy losses. She courageously shared her struggles publicly over the last couple of years, and she was a lifesaver to me when my family suffered our own devastating loss 18 months ago.
.

Baby Liam is her “rainbow baby” and he is an absolute miracle. Liam faces a more complicated infancy than some babies, however, because he was born with club feet, which means he faces a series of surgeries and therapies to help his feet develop over the next few years.
.
My boys and I were so excited to meet Liam: he is tiny and gorgeous and perfect. We brought this precious family our favorite organic pajamas from Hanna Andersson plus a dōTERRA Touch kit 💫🌿✨
.
The Touch kit contains 9 pre-diluted rollerbottles with top oils and blends to support the physical and emotional healing of the entire family, which makes it extra-easy to reach for essential oils even when you’re feeling overwhelmed 🙌
.
Sending love and hope to anyone else who has experienced pregnancy or infant loss 💜

✨ So many people are walking a path that is NOT of their choosing, whether through the pressure of societal norms or the expectations of family and peers. This lack of alignment with core values causes discomfort, so people numb themselves with wine, Netflix, trendy shoes, social media, or pills.
.
I know this because I’ve been there. The dread of going to work. A job that feels futile and thankless. Gifts and talents underutilized. Long, unfulfilling hours spent away from my kids. The wellbeing of my family taking a hit despite working in “healthcare”.
.
So after taking a terrifying leap away from a “normal” medical career, I’m here to tell you that NOTHING feels better than living with 100% integrity and speaking your truth.
.
The risk and fear and wobbles are part of the journey to awakening and fulfillment. YOUR true path is waiting for you, and it’s beautiful beyond your wildest dreams 💫

This is why we should all be more aware of the ingredients in our household cleaners and personal care products (from the BMJ in May 2018). The average home is teeming with endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs).
.
Until the regulations catch up with the science (and we may never be able to put the genie back in the bottle), we have to rely on our own wisdom and education to drive an improvement in our environmental health and push back the power of the chemical manufacturing industry.
.
I haven’t purchased a commercial cleaning product in YEARS. They simply aren’t necessary. Even the “eco friendly” brands are often anything but healthy. I clean my entire house with bicarbonate of soda, essential oils, vinegar, and a plant-based cleaning concentrate from dōTERRA. Yup, toilets, too! It’s easy, affordable, and smells amazing.
.
Personal care products are a particular cause for concern. Women in particular introduce hundreds (if not thousands) of chemicals into their bodies through the skin EVERY day in the form of skin care, deodorants, make up, and perfume. Why? Because a billion-dollar industry tells us we need these products to be attractive. The WHO warns us that this is an industry that is making us (and our children and grandchildren) sick.
.
So where do you start? Begin with reading reputable articles like this one, and reading the labels in your home. Start questioning the marketing you’ve been believing for years and clear our your bathroom cabinet (and note that many of your household products require disposal in hazardous waste facilities). Try making your own deodorant (so easy and cheap!), try cleaning your bathroom with lemon oil, and go ahead ditch your makeup foundation FOREVER. Love the skin you’re in by keeping it safe. 💫🌿💕

It’s time to talk about COPAIBA 💫 Did you know that cannabis plants are NOT the only source of cannabinoids?
.
The news here in Europe has been full of discussion about balancing the potential health benefits of plant cannabinoids with the risks posed by the psychoactive effects of cannabis extracts and the challenges of regulating the trade.
.
Enter copaiba essential oil, distilled from protected copaifera trees in S. American rainforests. Copaiba is unusually high in beta-caryophyllene, a powerful phytocannabinoid which is selectively active on CB2 receptors and therefore completely spares the psychoactive receptors which are activated by other cannabinoids.
.
The scientific literature on copaiba and beta-carophyllene is growing rapidly and I highly recommend doing a search on Pub Med to learn about some of the astonishing discoveries ✨ We have been using this oil in our home since September, and it is definitely a favourite 🙌
.
This is an oil with limitless uses, but here are a few ideas: .
🌿 Add 1-3 drops to drinking water daily (adults) to promote healthy levels of inflammation
🌿 Use a drop under your tongue (adults) to support your immune system when needed
🌿 Massage with carrier oil to soothe occasional aches and pains
🌿 Add to skin care serums/creams to promote glowing skin
🌿 Drink in water (adults) or apply with carrier oil to the abdomen to support the digestive system
🌿 Diffuse with citrus oils and/or other tree oils to lift a low mood or reduce anxious feelings
🌿 Apply a drop to the roof of the mouth to support neurological function
.
There are SO many incredible testimonies about this essential oil — I’d love to hear your stories in the comments below! A video overview of copaiba chemistry and benefits will be available to view on my Fb page ✨🌱

Oil #10 is DEEP BLUE, the “Soothing Blend.” This pure combo of highly prized oils packs a serious punch when it comes to supporting the musculoskeletal system and promoting healthy levels of inflammation 💫 And yes, it is actually blue in colour!
.
This blend contains the essential oils of camphor, wintergreen, peppermint, ylang ylang, helichrysum, blue tansy, German chamomile and osmanthus flower.
.
This oil is one that is best enjoyed topically (NOT internally):
✨ Rubbed with fractionated coconut oil onto stiff joints
✨ Dabbed onto temples to relieve head tension (my fave!)
✨ Massaged into muscles after a workout (pro athletes swear by the Deep Blue Rub)
✨ Applied with carrier oil to the lower back and abdomen during monthly cycles
.
What top tips can you share about this amazing oil?

Oil #9 is DIGESTZEN aka ZENGEST here in Europe, and it is dōTERRA’s Digestive Blend 🌿💫
.
Any student of Ayurveda will recognize the tummy-taming spices and herbs in this blend of pure essential oils: anise, peppermint, ginger, caraway seed, coriander, tarragon, and fennel 🌱✨
.
This oil can help soothe all kinds of tummy upsets and bring the digestive system back into balance:
🌱 Inhale the aroma to settle queasiness in cars or buses
🌱 Drink a drop in a glass of warm or cold water after a heavy meal 🌱 Take 1-2 drops in a capsule (or use the DigestZen softgels) for occasional heartburn relief
🌱 Dilute with carrier oil and massage on the abdomen: this stimulates a sluggish digestion AND soothes an overactive gut!
🌱 Dilute heavily and massage on a child’s tummy for any upset (a GP friend of mine had some amazing experiences with her colicky infant)
.
Don’t be afraid to try this blend topically for other body systems, too! (It is giving my husband relief right this minute from a shoulder ache my heavy suitcase inflicted on him 😬) and I’ve heard it can be wonderful for menstrual discomfort and sinuses👃 .
How has this oil rocked YOUR world?
