doTERRA - Melaleuca Oil

I wanted to share my most recent experience with doTERRA oils.

My daughter had a huge diaper blowout a few days ago that burned her bum and leg. :( Poor girl was miserable.

That night I had her soak in a bath of Epsom salt and Melaleuca oil for about 10 mins. Then before putting on her diaper I poured a couple drops of the Melaleuca oil directly on her burns and then covered them with butt paste. The next morning those burns looked so much better. It's now Monday and her burns are pratically gone just from applying a few drops of the Melaleuca oil.

This is a great staple oil to have in your Essential Oil kit. It does so many things.
- antibacterial
- anit-infectious
- anti-inflammatory
- a strong antiseptic

It helps with the following symptoms and more.

- Coughs
- Cuts
- infected wounds
- infection
- inflammation
- sunburn
- wounds
- earache

New Items

It's been awhile since I posted a new item for my Etsy shop. I've been slacking. Well I finally dusted off my sewing machine and got to work. A couple of months ago I was on pinterest and found this really cute wallet. I thought that this would be perfect to use up my scraps of fabric with. There was a free pattern on that blog, so I printed it. The pattern is easy and it only has 3 pieces to it.

Here is the result of what I have made.

Items have already been listed in my shop. I will be posting more in the coming days.

Be Prepared - July

I can't believe that it's July already! I hope you all enjoyed your 4th with fun and saftey. I've got about 3 weeks left before baby girl makes her appearance. This coming friday will be my last day of work. I'm looking forward to 9 weeks of paid vacation time to get ready and meet this new addition.

Well anyways, how did you did with your June food storage preparation? I have to be honest I didn't as well as should have but I did get a few items checked off, like sugar and jams.

This month's focus will be on fruits and fruit juices. You can do a couple of things when it comes to fruit.

You can can it, buy it already canned for you, or you can dehydrate it.

Canning - here is good site to get you started.

Buying it - look for sales at your local grocery stores. Usually during the Summertime some will put out a special to buy by the case.

Dehydrating - this form is good to make raisins, apricots and bananas. Here is a great blog on how to do it, b/c i'm not very good at it.

Here is July's full file for items to collect.

Be Prepared - June

It's June!! How did you do in putting together your important information into one place and collecting fun activities for your family?

How about collecting water? If you didn't don't worry just try to do as much as you can.

This month it's all about sugar!

Sugar in different forms.
  • granulated, brown, powdered
  • Honey
  • jam
  • molasses
You will need to store about 60 lbs of sugar per person. Many people think that they don't eat that much sugar, but when divided into other sub-categories, you may find that you really do need that much.

Here's a breakdown for different types of sugar to collect and how much per person

Granulated sugar - 40 lbs
Brown sugar - 3 lbs
Molasses - 1 lb
Honey - 3 lbs
Corn Syrup - 3 lbs
Jams & Jellies - 3 lbs
Powedered Drinks - 6 lbs
Jello - 1 lb

Happy Collecting!! Here is the full file to print out for June.

How to Know What Necklace to Wear w/ Each Neckline

Have you ever wondered what necklace should I wear with a certain top? I know that I have. Well I found this great tip with a picture to help out with that lingering question.

Different necklines look better with certain necklace styles.

Turtle necks – best with longer necklaces
Crew necks – best with short necklaces such as necklace ‘collar’ or bib styles
Scoop necks – fill in the space with multiple strands of beads or larger scale pendants
Strapless – look great with chokers or short pendants, leaving your lovely decolletage bare
Square necks – look for pendants with an angular finish to harmonize with the angular neckline
Asymmetric necklines – look for necklaces that aren’t symmetrical, instead a necklace that has it’s own asymmetry can work, alternatively a long string of different sized and shaped beads can work well.
Halter necks – these create a narrow V neck – so look for a narrow pendant with a sharper end
V neck – ideally a necklace that matches the shape of the V – depending if it’s a wider or narrower V neck.
Collared shirt (button down) – there isn’t much space for anything too wide, so a choker style works if you have a long neck, if not a slimmer pendant that sits above the last open button.
Boat neck – a long string or two of beads is ideal for this neckline.
Cowl neck – this neckline is already detailed and has volume, so either a short and small pendant or a pair of feature earrings instead of a necklace.
Sweetheart – a curved necklace that has width that will balance the open decolletage of this neckline.

I'm super excited to annouce that I'm starting a new adventure in essential oils! I've joined the doTERRA team as a Wellsness Advocate! It's been a decision in the making and I decided that now is the time to do it!

I've been trying to find another way that I can supplement the income that I bring home from working fulltime and to concentrate on my Pink Senorita business as well. I figured that this was the best way to do it. I love using essential oils b/c they are so versatile. I can make things with them and using them as supplements for what is in my medicine cabinet.

I look foward to sharing recipes and ideas that I come up with using essential oils.
