Wanna start your day off on the positive? Come take a peek at what I use every morning…
Starting before I even get out of bed, I drink my water with lemon. My awesome orange Hydro Flask holds 24oz of water, so I put 3 drops of lemon oil. (Caution – only do this with glass or stainless steel, as the lemon will eat the plastic.) It’s important to rehydrate first thing in the morning and the lemon provides super-gentle cleansing. I’ve been doing the 30 day cleanse and adding one TerraZyme as well.
I get up and take a brisk walk (really!). Then it’s off to the shower where I start with the dōTERRA Salon Essentials Protecting Shampoo and Veráge™ Cleanser. I let those stay on while I use the new dōTERRA SPA Moisturizing Bath Bar – it makes a great shaving lather. I rinse everything off and then I use the dōTERRA Salon Essentials Smoothing Conditioner. As I’m drying off I spray the shower with my homemade shower spray (1.5oz white vinegar, 3oz water, 2 drops Lemon, 3 drops Melaleuca, 1 drop Clove in a glass spray bottle).
At the sink I go from the right (I’ve already used the cleanser) I start by spraying my face with the Veráge™ Toner, then applying the Veráge™ Immortelle Hydrating Serum (smells SOOOO good!) followed by the Veráge™ Moisturizer.
Next up is the Natural Deodorant. I gotta say, when I started using this a year ago, an underarm rash I’d developed completely went away! This deodorant smells as great as it feels. Between the deodorant and serum is my homemade deodorant for really hot days – I find the the dōTERRA deodorant melts onto my clothes when it gets too hot out. I finish off my hair with the dōTERRA Salon Essentials Root to Tip Serum. I love the smell of this hair product and it really makes my hair behave.
One of my favorite products is the On Guard Whitening Toothpaste, which is what I finish up my time in the bathroom with. I love that I can brush my teeth and then have my smoothie and not have the yucky interaction with fruit that you get with other toothpastes.
Moving on to the kitchen, I make my morning Mint Chocolate Milkshake (smoothie) with Peppermint oil and TerraGreens. SO much YUM!! With my smoothie, I take my Lifelong Vitality supplements. Again, right now I’m doing the 30-day cleanse, so I’m taking more than usual.
Now to oils! I put an oil on my feet in the morning, usually Balance grounding blend or OnGuard protective blend. I also put ClaryCalm monthly blend for women over my ovaries to assist with post-menopausal temperature regulation. And I also put Frankincense on some age spots on my face to help minimize their appearance.
This is a routine I’ve developed and added to over the last five years, so don’t get overwhelmed! It does help me to stay grounded and gives me the energy I need to build my business and mentor my team.
