Ingredients
8 ounce glass pump bottle
½ cup unscented Castile soap
4 tablespoons vegetable glycerin
3 tablespoons Fractionated Coconut Oil

Note: Vegetable glycerin will help the body wash be thicker, creamier, and lather better.

Instructions

  1. Combine ingredients into glass pump bottle.
  2. Add desired essential oil(s).
    Tip: For an uplifting body wash try these essential oils: Citrus Bliss®, Peppermint, Grapefruit, Lime, or Eucalyptus. For a relaxing body wash try these: Lavender, doTERRA Serenity®, Bergamot, Geranium, or Roman Chamomile.
  3. Shake to combine.

Note: Make sure to shake before each use, as the ingredients will separate.

Personality Test~ What Color are You?

Personality Test~ What Color are You?

We communicate all day long. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could “speak the language” of everyone we are talking to? As a mom of three kiddos, wife and #bossbabe, I come into contact with lots of color personalities EVERY day!!. So, I am going to keep this as simple as possible:

  • First you need to learn YOUR color/type.
  • Second everyone that you communicate with needs to know their color/type. Or if they are too young, you can help them figure it out. 
  • Watch the videos below  and the word graph to determine your color/type 

GREEN

RED

YELLOW

BLUE

Are you a GREEN, RED, YELLOW and BLUE personality? Maybe you are a mix of two or even three? Maybe you are one color at work and one at home?

  • Green make up 35% of the population. They are indirect and self-contained. They are totally left-brained, logical and analytical.
  • Yellow make up 35% of the population. They are indirect and open. These people are right-brained. They are creative and they are great on relationships; but this Color is the best at using both sides of their brain. Their left side is logical and analytical; so they really do a great job of using both sides of their brain.
  • Red make up 15% of the population. They are direct and self-contained. They are left-brain logical and analytical.

  • Blue make up 15% of the population.  They are direct and open. They are right-brained. Matter of fact, they are very creative and they are big on relationships. They are the most right-brained of all the Colors.

I am a dominant red personality with some green in there too. I like to take charge, I am super competitive (If there is a prize to win, you can bet that I am going for it), I will become a millionaire in the near future and I am currently learning about investing, I like for my inbox to be a zero, my favorite part of my biz in creating relationships, but I don’t love the follow ups. 

If you look in my purse, my green comes out. I have everything organized. My makeup in one bag, my essential oil in another, my wallet (which is also organized), my pens are in a pen holder in my purse and there is the perfect pocket for my phone too! In my home and biz, I have systems for everything…the smoother something can run, the better. My computer is organized like my purse. I have every folder, and subfolder organized in a way anyone can find it. My contacts are in a spreadsheet, with about 6 diff ways to organize the so I can find the info the fastest. I love planners (i probably have an addiction of sorts). I like to feel as organized as possible. One of my personal development loves is learning how to be better organized or on time management. I have to have the best gadgets if I feel like they will help save me time. 

With Love and Simple Solutions,

My Joy List

My Joy List

I started to think about the importance of having a “JOY” list…and why I need to START one. I want it to be:

a place I can visit daily…reminding me to be so thankful for what I have…but yet allowing me to dream bigger!

a place where I can be inspired to be a better wife, mommy, friend and leader.

a place that makes me happy….but more importantly a reminder of the things that bring JOY into my life.

This will be a never-ending, always edited list…but here is a start. If you need more help with ideas to start your own Joy list read this great article here http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-5731/4-Steps-to-Create-Your-Joy-List.html

Take a Break from Tech!

Take a Break from Tech!

Technology is AMAZING.  We use it nearly every single day…and it absolutely improves the quality of our lives and puts the world at our fingertips.

However…. it can also be highly addictive, distract our attention, and can cause us not to be fully “present” in the conversations we’re having, the tasks we’re working on, or the roads we’re driving on. 

How many times have you been out to dinner and not been truly present because you’ve been glancing at your phone all night checking to see if you got a text message?  Or how often have you been driving and checking your FB news feed and somehow “arrived” at your destination without remembering how you got there!

I’m challenging you to UNPLUG for 1 day this week! (Just ONE- I know you can do it!) 

Before you say “there’s no chance”… Being addicted to your devices can:

  • Increase your feelings of loneliness, isolation, and depression
  • Cause you to feel more anxious and inadequate
  • Increase your levels of stress
  • Exacerbate ADD
  • Decrease your lack of creativity
  • Lower your ability to concentrate and focus
  • Cause a lack of quality sleep

Most importantly, live is about LIVING and being PRESENT in the moment!  It’s about spending quality time with people you love and care about. 

Are you up for the challenge? If you’re ready to give up your devices for a day, let us know in a comment below!

With love and hustle,

What is the One Word to Boost Your Productivity?

Vision Board Challenge

Vision Board Challenge

Let’s start the New Year off right and with INTENTION.
Time to get creative!
Have you ever heard of a vision board?!
Whether you said yes or no- your challenge this week is to MAKE ONE!
So what is a vision board?
A vision board is basically a board (made out of poster or cork) where you post meaningful pictures or words that represent goals, attributes, or things you would like to attract and work towards in your life.
I believe in being proactive rather than reactive in your life.

Part of that means you have to FIRST know what you WANT!

Once you know that…you can move forward toward your goals.
Your vision board will serve as a source of inspiration.
It’s there to keep you focused, motivated, and to recharge you with positive energy.
The one rule of creating a proper vision board is this: ANYTHING is allowed and there are no limitations! Just open your mind and don’t let anything hold you back.
Here’s how to create your vision board:
1. Pick out your board: cork board, poster board, pin board, etc.
2. Next, get markers, stickers, a glue stick, scissors, and a lot of magazines that you love.
3. Next, cut and paste words or pictures from the magazines of quotes, sayings, or affirmations that you love, places you want to visit, and images that reflect your personal or professional goals…basically anything you want for yourself or in your life – as long as it represents something meaningful and important to you.
4. Once you’re happy with your vision board, place it somewhere that you’ll see it every day!
So – are you up for living 2017 with INTENTION and creating your vision board this week?
If yes, let me know and post a pic of your vision board once it’s complete!
With love and hustle,
XO
I love Ellen and she always makes me laugh…but on a really cool note, this video was shot in 2009 and look what she says about Finding Nemo 2!!
Start with your “Why”

Start with your “Why”

I LOVE TED talks. They are less than 20 minutes and straight to-the-point. When you want to learn about a new topic always check to see if there is a TED talk on it. #MaximizeHer

Simon Sinek the author of “Start with your Why” has perfected the topic and helps you understand the importance of creating a purposeful and heart-felt why. “People don’t buy WHAT you do, they buy WHY you do it!!” 

Use this worksheet to help you craft the perfect why for your doTERRA buisness.  “Finding your Why Worksheet” When you start with your why, all the “hows” will fall into place. 

“The purposeful are those who have found something meaningful to dedicate themselves to, who have sustained this interest over a period of time, and who express a clear sense of what they are trying to accomplish in the world and why. They have found a cause or ultimate goal that inspires their efforts from day to day and helps them fashion a coherent future agenda. They know what they want to accomplish and why, and they have taken concerted steps to achieve their ambitions.” -William Damon
