Today, I'd love to talk about how a movie about Menstruation won an Oscar.....
Period. End of Sentence
This is a documentary about how girls in different parts of the world are unable to continue going to school once they get their period because they have no access to pads, tampons, hence they are deemed 'dirty' and pulled out of school. Some cultures send their girls and women away to live in a shed when they bleed. Most have no education around their menstruation being a natural part of a females life. It breaks my heart.
Days for Girls is a charity that supports the education and provision of reusable cloth pads around the world and I am so proud that dōTERRA's Healing Hands Foundation support this charity. We have Days for Girls here in Australia supporting women in rural indigenous communities. Just by purchasing bottles of essential oil and other doTERRA Products we are giving back to the world and humanity.
Next month, in fact next week we have International Women's Day and I can't wait to share more with you on how we can all be Unstoppable Women!
In the meantime here is a video about doTERRA and Days for Girls...and below you'll find a beautiful Aromatic Dressing especially for women xx
Lots of love,
Welcome to another edition of Wisdom Wednesday.
Today I would love to share with you an Essential Oil Reading I have done for you on this Full Moon in Virgo.
I don't know about you but February has been feeling a little funky and heavy. Like I have been so slowwwww and needing lots of sleep. So I took a took a look at where I may have been slipping in my self care routines and yep - it was pretty bloody obvious actually! No wonder I was feeling heavy and dense...my nutrition has been great, but my meditation had slipped because I've accidentally been watching too much TV of crazy shows that really don't do anything to uplift me.
It might sound harmless, and yeah I thought so too, (just something mindless to have a laugh at) but here's the thing, the shows I have been watching really don't resonate that highly on an energetic level - what do I mean by that? Well they are out of alignment with my personal beliefs and integrity of Love, Kindness and Honesty. So by me spending my evenings watching this shit I had lowered my own vibrational energy down to that kind of level - hence feeling soooooo sluggish and dense, not my usual passionate inspired self.
I'd be better off doing some gentle yoga or watching an inspiring documentary or reading a book. I'm not saying I wont watch mindless rubbish on TV again - but I wont make a HABIT of it every night.
So if you've been feeling a bit blahhh, then this blend below will assist you to create Positive Change in your life too xx
The recipes I share at the end are courtesy of Anastasia Borserio and Bonnie Donahue - two wonderful doTERRA Leader who shared these recipes with us.

Welcome to the month of LOVE! This is also my birthday month so I kind love it even more!
OK I want to try something different with you xx
Let's face it - I haven't been a very consistent communicator with you have I?
So rather than ad-hoc, I'd like to stretch myself (I'm giggling as I write this cos it shouldn't be this hard but it is to a passionate creative who likes to create when her juices are flowing and this can be in ebbs and flows!!!) Imma gonna give this consistency thing a go! Again!
So Ta-Da!!! Here's Wisdom Wednesday coming at you each Wednesday.
What will be showing up in these fandangled posts you ask?
Welllll..... Essential Oils and Women's Circles are two of favourite things and more and more I am being drawn to incorporate and blend the two so I will be sharing inspiration on both of these topics in a way that offers you everyday value and shares my stories with you (cos you know I love a bit of wisdom storytelling) as well as invite you to upcoming gatherings and special offers - cos I really can't keep these to myself - it would be really selfish of me!!
Let's try it -
Last month we had a glorious Full Moon Gathering saying goodbye to 2018 as we laid down our intentions for 2019...It had been ages since I had facilitated an in-person circle and it was so fulfilling (check out the "What's On Next Month" below for upcoming circles), I made some beautiful Aura Sprays up for the women attending infused with essential oils and we used Copaiba which is The Oil of Unveiling - so fitting because our theme was "Unveiling HerVision".
What was unveiled to me was my deep desire to step back into owning my voice more fully - I don't know about you but last year felt as though I had slipped back into some old habits of playing small.
I knew with absolute clarity that CIRCLE was going to be my answer, that facilitating circles is like a calling for me, I am my most real and true self when I do this and I realised I had pushed that to the side in order to "focus on my dōTERRA Business", but I've come full circle now (pun totally intended) and believe that I cannot have one without the other. They feed each other and they feed me.
It's about collaboration and co-creation.
There can't be that separation anymore, it feels too discombobulating (great word) like somehow I have to hide one part of me in order to do and be the other part.
But look the reason I joined dōTERRA in the first place was for the business opportunity it gave women to be financially free in a feminine model of collaborative leadership ie in a Circle of Leadership. The extra gift was the powerful emotional and physical health benefits I receive from the oils.
So it seems so clear to me now that as hard as I tried to keep these two things seperate last year - I was really just kidding myself.
I want to leave you with a New Moon Reading I did this month along with a diffuser blend you can use to tune in to the energy available - it's only just past us so you'll still find this useful xx
New Moon Reading
“You are here for a reason” and Spearmint - “The Oil of Confident Speech”
On this New Moon in Aquarius which also happens to be my birth sign, these cards are reminding us to speak our truth. Where in your life right now have you forgotten that your presence on this earth is so very important?
What you have to say is important.
Are you afraid of what people will think? Are you afraid of upsetting the apple cart? Are you afraid no-one will care? Are you afraid that you may be wrong? The wisdom you have gained in your life is yours to share, the world needs to hear it.
Will everyone listen? No, but those who need to hear it will be drawn to your message through more than your words alone so be present with the power of your words, are they coming from an authentic voice? Aquarian energy is futuristic and as an air sign quite visionary. So what is the vision for your future and are you articulating this to yourself and to others honestly?
Take some time today to sit quietly and listen to your inner voice, as a woman your true voice and power comes from your womb space and your pussy, so try sitting with one hand on your sacral chakra (your lower belly) and one hand on your throat chakra and begin to pass energy or warmth or tingling or light (whatever works for you) between the two. Open up this feminine pathway and listen to what your body is speaking to you, is she tired, is she excited, is she numb, is she impatient, is she scared, is she in love, notice the feelings in your body that come up for you, notice the images and words that pop into your head. Then take a pen and paper and just free write whatever wants to come out, don’t judge it, just listen.
Be courageous and compassionate my beauty-full friends as you start to lay down the intentions for sharing your authentic message and speaking your truth.
Hey! How are you? I love sharing, I love talking, I love connected from that honest raw place of truth that's within all of us - know what I mean? Yes? Well babe you're gonna love checking in with this blog.
