doTERRA Slim & Sassy

doTERRA Slim & Sassy – doTERRA’s bestselling oil for a reason.  It can help you lose weight by managing your craving between meals.  Just add 8 drops to 16 oz. of water (regular size bottle of water) and drink between your healthy meals throughout the day to help manage hunger, calm your stomach, and lift your mood. Slim & Sassy includes a blend of grapefruit, lemon, peppermint, ginger, and cinnamon essential oils.

Essential oils are a great way to include more water in your daily routine since they should always be diluted. Ginger and peppermint tea always makes me feel less yucky when I have an upset stomach. Not only is mint good for freshening breath, it is also wonderful at opening nasal passages. The smell of fresh cut lemon always helps me feel more alert.  When my throat is sore, I turn to the warming sensation of cinnamon for its soothing effect. Antioxidants contained in fruits can act as a stimulant and help me get through the midafternoon slump.

I cannot say that I have experience any weight loss but I have felt more energetic from increasing my water intake. doTERRA's Slim and Sassy blend offers a refreshing taste enhance bland water. Always test for an allergic reaction first. I can use my bug off EO blend on my skin but when my husband used it his skin felt like it was on fire and he developed a rash.

My preferred method is a drop or two under the tongue. I then wash it down with as much water as I can. Inhale through the mouth for a cooling sensation that your an feel in your nasal passages. I taste the tartness of the lemon neutralizing my palette, the sweetness of the grapefruit, & the coolness of the peppermint. Each person will have a different experience.

Party backdrop

Party backdrop on a Budget

Framing your party space is essential for a cohesive look. Adding a backdrop can be a challenge if you do not have an empty wall to create the desired look. How do you accomplish this with a fully furnished room without moving furniture and while on a tight budget?

1-Palm Tree

My son is turning 4 this week and for the last month I have been creating decorations. It really doesn't take a month but when you have two toddlers and four cats running around the house, finding quiet time can be challenging.
