Continuing my theme of switching over our home to healthier options when we can, I will be writing today about making over your medicine cabinet with safe, toxin-free alternatives using essential oils and products infused with essential oils.


Many people feel that it is crucial to take a daily supplement, even if you are a healthy eater.  Our soil lacks nutrients that were present historically, and supplementation is the easiest way to ensure you are getting all of the vitamins, minerals, and herbs your body needs on a daily basis.  doTERRA’s supplement trio called LifeLong Vitality is their #1 selling product – and for a good reason – they are quite simply, awesome – and do exactly what their name says – promote Life Long Vitality when taken consistently!  They are a whole food supplement (not synthetic – which your body does not recognize and know what to do with), formulated differently for each country based on their specific dietary needs, and come with a full 30-day $ back guarantee.   This supplement line has been a game-changer for many of my clients reporting they look and feel better within the 30-day trial!

Children’s Vitamins/Supplements

Did you know most children’s vitamins contain a large dose of sugar?  Now, how can that be good for our kids?  doTERRA’s children’s supplement line is perfectly formulated for kids today.  doTERRA offers a liquid Omega supplement (promotes healthy cardiovascular, nervous, and immune system function) for kids, a chewable multi-vitamin/mineral supplement (containing a super-food blend that helps support overall health and wellness) and a Pixie-Stick-like fun probiotic/prebiotic called PB Assist Jr.  I love this probiotic for my kids (tastes great), and also for myself.  PB Assist Jr. contains both a pre-biotic and pro-biotic and promotes healthy microflora balance.  It also supports immune and gastrointestinal system function.  PB Assist Jr. is sweetened with stevia,and I like to pop one when I have a sweet craving; it satisfies my sweet tooth, but in a healthy manner! 

Seasonal Support

 If you suffer from seasonal or environmental issues, you will LOVE doTERRA’s TriEase Softgels.  They are a combination of lavender, lemon and peppermint essential oils in a convenient softgel.  You can also diffuse this combination and make a rollerball blend of these 3 oils to apply topically.  It is super effective at relieving seasonal outdoor symptoms, and does not make you drowsy or have any of the other side effects often associated with over-the-counter seasonal tablets.  

Acid Indigestion

If you suffer from occasional acid indigestion or upset stomach, you should give doTERRA DigestTabs a try.  They help provide relief quickly from occasional stomach upset, sour stomach, indigestion and heartburn when taken with or between meals.  This product contains calcium carbonate, which acts as an acid-neutralizer.  My  physician pointed out that a common side effect of commercial antacids is that they may leach calcium from your bones, so this is a much healthier option – especially because Osteoporosis runs in my family.

Sleep Aids

Many Americans report having difficulty falling and/or staying asleep.  Local pharmacy shelves are full of different sleep aids, and many people even take prescription medicines for sleeping.  These can cause dependence and often have less than desirable side effects.  Taking the Serenity Softgels 1/2 hour before bed and running a diffuser with Serenity Essential oil is super effective with no side effects, other than a pleasant scent for occasional sleeplessness.  Sleep used to be my big issue during menopause, and this combo has worked great for me.  Purchase the two together for a discounted combo!
In addition, going outside for 20 minutes as soon as you can after waking will help set your circadian rhythm for sound sleep.  Purchasing some blue-light blocking glasses to wear at night is also helpful.  I also have my I-phone setting called “Night Shift” set from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. which turns off the blue light from my phone screen.
I hope you are enjoying fall, and that some of these healthy options make it into your home.  If you try them, please let me know how you like them – I love to hear testimonials!
