The theme for convention was Dream & this kit is a bloody dream alright.

Ahh I’m still rewatching some of the convention before the recordings are taken down. Writing more notes & absorbing it all.

There is so much value in the content

✨ New products with their uses & benefits

✨ Confirmation after confirmation that Doterra oils truely are the gold standard and the purest on you can get. (Not just Doterra saying this)

✨ How Doterra are giving back & the heartwarming, tear jerking stories from those they have helped and continue to support

✨ How Doterra is disrupting the healthcare industry

There is so much & I’ll share more in upcoming posts.

Today I want to focus on the new products & the convention kit because you will have the chance to purchase it as a kit as of the 2nd of Oct ( US). I’m sooo excited about this. You will even get extra freebies if you can grab the kit.

Doterra Dream Convention Kit aka new products

Kids Collection

6 roller bottles designed especially for children.

❤️Steady & Brave – supporting their heart – helping to calm anxious feelings, acceptance, grounding, confidence

💪🏽 Rescuer & Stronger – Supporting their body – aches & pains, resilient, support immunity.

They come in a carry bag, have flashcards & carabiners so they can clip onto bags. These are designed for 3 – 10year olds empowering them to take care of themselves & giving them a positive oil experience. The idea is the child chooses the oil they feel they need & can apply it themselves. Adults can use it on younger children. Teens and adults can use it by applying more frequently as it is diluted more.

I’m going to need two sets here 👧🏽👦🏽

Green Mandarin

Woooooo

Shit so I’m so excited about all of this. It’s an amazing new range of products. Most will be available individually from the 1st of October with a few following 1st Nov and the Yarrow POM coming in December.

But October 2nd you can buy the whole convention kit via the US store – yes we can access that store from NZ & Australia. Be mindful of the conversion rates and any taxes that may apply.

The kit is $230 USD with a 200pv so you will get access to the 200PV promo in the US which is a car diffuser with a 5ml Red Mandarin, 5ml Clementine, 5 ml Kumquat. 🙀 I fckn know epic!

Plus if you get in before the 15th of the month you will get the free Product of the month on LRP [ you do have to have another product in the cart not just the convention kit to do an LRP order]

My advice is not to muck around if you want it, the kits are limited to what’s left after convention.

You can also buy the products that have so far been released via the US warehouse. So if you order anything w a 200pv you’ll still get the car diffuser & 3 oils. If you are already a customer you can do it as an LRP order before the 15th & get the POM product of the month – which is 15ml Lemon.

Shop link here – you’ll need to select the US store. If you need help message me on Facebook or Instagram

Much love

How radical are you? Title graphic

How Radical are you? You may not want to be as radical as you think.

In asking this I’m referring to how radical is your body, not in how damn fly you are. Because we know you fllllyyy.

Anywho I’m talking about how radical your body is in relation to these little guys called Free Radicals.

What are Free Radicals I hear you ask. Continue reading

5 ways to Winter wellness

image

  1. Grow your own sprouts – lovely to see some ‘life’ in your kitchen at this time of year. Easy to grow, amazing nutrient source & delicious.
  2. Add a matcha green tea to your day. Nothing like a hot cuppa on a frosty day. Matcha has many health benefits including enhancing mood, antioxidants & fights against viruses and bacteria.
  3. Probiotics – 85% of our immune system resides in our gut! Probiotics reestablish the proper balanpce of good bacteria in the gut. Wholefood probiotics are best as they are real food or make your own cultured foods – sauerkraut, kimchi etc.
  4. Juice for nutrient assimilation at a cellular level. A great combo for this time of year >> orange, carrots, ginger and turmeric. Bonus is that it looks like sunshine to remind us of those summer days we may be missing.
  5. Move! Don’t let winter slow you down too much. Exercise produces endorphins – a feel good buzz, to help keep the winter blues at bay. Dance it off, practice yoga, do a one song work out. It’s a great way to keep warm.

I would love to hear from you. Let me know in the comments below how you stay well in winter.

Superfoods for arthritis

Apples

Contain anti-inflammatory antioxidants and bone-friendly boron and magnesium.  Eating 100g of apple provides the same antioxidant benefits for inflamed joints as 1500mg vitamin c.  Wash but don’t peel your apples the antioxidants are five times more concentrated in the skin than the flesh.

Avocado

Contains antioxidant monounsaturated oils, essential fatty acids, beta-sitosterol and vitamin E. Avocado can suppress joint inflammation by reducing production of inflammatory substances.  It promotes cartilage repair in osteoarthritis by stimulating the activity of bone-building cells and cartilage cells.

Brazil Nuts

The richest dietary source of selenium – a single Brazil nut contains around 50mcg.  Selenium improves the quality of cartilage proteins. Also good source of magnesium and sulphur.  People with the highest dietary intake of selenium are least likely to develop osteoarthritis.  Each increase of 0.1 parts per million of selenium in your toenail clippings ( a good indicator of selenium status) lowers your risk of knee osteoarthritis by 20 percent.

Chilli peppers

Contains substances called capsaicin and dihydrocapsaicin.  Capsaicin and dihydrocapsaicin block transmission of pain messages.  They also trigger the release of endorphins – the brains own morphine-like painkillers.  Capsaicin is used in clinical trials as a long acting analgesic to treat post-surgical and osteoarthritis pain – a single injection at the site of pain acts for several months.

Curry powder spices

For example, anise, chilli, cloves, cumin, fennel, ginger, mustard and turmeric. Curry spices have an anti-inflammatory, pain killing action that helps to alleviate joint symptoms.  Mustard isothiocyanates reduce inflammation in a similar way to aspirin.  Turmeric and ginger contain curcumin, which may reduce cartilage destruction in osteoarthritis, and prevent the onset of rheumatoid arthritis.

Dark green leafy vegetables

For example broccoli, spinach, spring greens, dark green cabbage and parsley.  These vegetables supply antioxidant carotenoids, vitamin C, calcium and magnesium. A high antioxidant diet is good for arthritis.  Sixty-one percent of the bone-friendly calcium  found in broccoli is absorbed from the gut, compared to 32 percent of calcium in milk. Inliven contains broccoli, spinach and cabbage and Deep green contains kale, collard greens and lots of grass juices.

Dark blue-red pigmented fruits

For example cherries, grapes, blueberries, bilberries, dark raspberries and elderberries.  These contain antioxidant anthocyanins which lower levels of inflammatory chemicals in the body.  Eating 250g of black cherries daily can lower uric acid levels enough to prevent gout.  Drinking a glass of red grape juice has an antioxidant action that lasts for two hours after ingestion. As the name suggests Berry Radical has a variety of berries packed in, including acai berry, raspberry, blueberry, strawberry.

Garlic

Contains beneficial substances such as allicin.  A Russian study has shown that people with rheumatoid arthritis can benefit from increasing the amount of garlic they eat.

Grapefruit

Contains vitamin C and antioxidant bioflavonoids.  Red grapefruit has a higher antioxidant content than yellow grapefruit.  Grapefruit helps to reduce inflammation, strengthen cartilage and block prostaglandins (substances involved in pain).  It increase the anti-inflammatory effect of some painkillers.  Eating grapefruit regularly improves symptoms in some people with rheumatoid and other forms of inflammatory arthritis.

Macadamia nuts

The richest food source of monounsaturated fatty acids and an excellent source of vitamin E and selenium.  The antioxidant action reduces inflammation in arthritis.  The nuts are being used in a trial to reduce the risk of rheumatoid arthritis. Cathedral Cove Macadamias has a great range of macadamia products.

Oily fish

A rich source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA).  A large analysis of 17 studies assessing the pain-relieving effects of omega-3 fatty acids in rheumatoid and other autoimmune forms of arthritis showed they significantly reduce joint pain and intensity, the duration of morning stiffness, the number of painful joints and the need to take NSAID painkillers – all within three to four months.

Olive oil

A rich source of monounsaturated fats and antioxidant, anti-inflammatory substances.  Increased olive oil consumption is associated with a reduced risk of rheumatoid arthritis and cardiovascular disease.  Olive oil may protect against the development of osteoarthritis.

Onions

A rich source of quercetin – an antioxidant bioflavonoid that suppresses the production of inflammatory substances.  Red onions are particularly high in antioxidants.  Quercetin binds to cartilage and strengthens its structure. As an antioxidant it mops up free radicals within joints and reduces the release of protein-degrading enzymes.

Pomegranate

A rich source of antioxidant polyphenols, anthocyanins, vitamins C and E and carotenoids.  Just one of the fantastic ingredients in Berry Radical. Its antioxidant potential is two or three times higher than that of red wine and green tea.  Ellagic acid in pomegranate juice reduces inflammation by blocking activation of inflammatory substances that play a key role in cartilage degradation in osteoarthritis.

Red wine

A rich source of antioxidant polyphenols such as resveratrol.  Resveratrol blocks the release of inflammatory substances, which helps to reduce joint inflammation.

Teas

White, green, oolong and black tea contain high levels of antioxidant catechins, such as epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). EGCG inhibits the expression of inflammatory mediators in arthritic joints and helps to protect cartilage degradation in osteoarthritis.

Walnuts

A rich source of omega-3 fatty acids.  Omega-3 fatty acids have an anti-inflammatory action. Some research shows that eating walnuts daily can help alleviate the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.

Yellow or orange fruit and vegetables

For example carrots, sweet potatoes, guava, mango and pumpkin – these are all rich sources of vitamin C and antioxidant carotenoids.  Fruit and vegetables with high antioxidant content can reduce pain and inflammation in all types of arthritis.

Yogurt (live)

Contains probiotic bacteria. Probiotic bacteria help to reduce the severity of joint inflammation.  They also reduce abnormal intestinal bacterial balance (dysbiosis) associated with ‘leakiness’ of the gut wall and food intolerance.  Inliven is packed full of probiotics or try the gluten-free Fast-tract which is even more abundant in the good bacteria.
