Food and Wine Pairings | Circle of Hope | Essential oils for your life!

Many Colors of Hope

Essentials oils are now part of my everyday life.  Whether I need a boost of energy before my gym workout (peppermint oil does the trick!) or I’m rubbing majoram oil on my sore muscles because of its analgesic effects, I realized over time, that there’s usually an oil I can utilize for just about every health need of mine.

Just a few years back, I only thought that essential oils were something that a massage therapist added to her massage oil so that it would smell better or I would see essential oils listed as one of the ingredients used in a reed diffuser to enhance the aroma in a room, but little did I know that essential oils had amazing healing properties!

I was introduced to doTERRA essential oils at a wellness event and for the first time, I learned that essential oils have the power to kill certain viruses and cancer cells, resolve minor health issues like burns, rashes, fevers, insomnia, headaches, upset stomach, minor muscle pain, and positively affect our mood.

At first, I wasn’t completely convinced that a natural substance could be as effective as the over-the-counter and prescribed medications I used over the years.  So I became my own test subject and put the oils to use!  Over time, I began using the oils for my occasional acne breakouts, insomnia, headaches, cramps, mosquito bites, a strange rash from a hiking trip, a cold, and a few other ailments.  To my surprise, the oils worked very well in treating my health issues and in some cases, the essential oils were doing a better job than some of the pills and creams I would normally use.  I realized that a healing intelligence exists in our plants, and extracting the oils from the various parts of plants, allows us to utilize the healing properties more effectively.

The most surprising thing I discovered about essential oils is that besides diffusing the oils into the air and applying the oils topically to my skin, I could also ingest the oils.  doTERRA oils are a therapeutic grade of oil meaning they are pure without being mixed with any fillers and the oils are tested for consistent quality and potency.   Now I was enjoying the subtle flavor of wild orange, lemon, or grapefruit essential oil in my water every day and I found out that the citrus oils contain a natural chemical called “d-Limonene” which is linked to the anti-tumoral properties of these oils so they may assist our bodies in preventing cancer.  This information was important to me as a breast cancer survivor since I’m always looking for holistic and natural ways to strengthen my immune system and support my cellular health to prevent a recurrence of cancer.

I’m such a believer of the oils that I became certified in doTERRA’s Aromatouch technique in 2013, which is a relaxing application of eight different essential oils on the meridians of the back, neck, scalp, and feet to address the following health concerns:

Stress

Weak Immunity

Sore Muscles

Inflammation

Imbalances of the Nervous System

Poor Circulation

Please come join me at our next class so you can learn more about the history and the healing properties of the oils, the effective uses of the oils, using essentials during and after cancer treatment, and how the Aromatouch technique can melt away any tension, aches, and pains, and help balance your body, mind, and spirit!

Thirty-One Days’ Worth of Hope | Circle of Hope | Battle against cancer

Circle Of Hope EventsUncategorizedLeave a Comment

For local non-profit Circle of Hope and its array of clients battling cancer, October is much more than Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Two years ago, while arranging the month’s events on the organization’s calendar, board members noticed that the group was close to filling up those days and weeks with opportunities to spread awareness and raise much needed support. A challenge was posed to the directors and volunteers: fill the remaining spaces on the calendar with beneficiary events, speaking engagements, publications and any other activity that could have the potential to make a difference to their clients. Response was positive, and so successful that Circle of Hope’s October calendar was not only filled, but burgeoning by month’s end. Thus, the 31 Days of Hope was launched.

The charity’s gratitude runs deep. Because of the generosity shown by the community—both corporate and individual—Circle of Hope was able to provide financial support to more clients, to touch more families, to offer more resources to their growing list of survivors. As October approaches this year, the calendar is again open for entries. Interested parties should contact Executive Director Ray Tippet at 661-254-5218 or write info@circleofhopeinc.org about joining the effort.

Look for the 31 Days of Hope logo for opportunities to lend a hand or make a donation. Let’s get the calendar filled again this year!
