Give the gift of life

For those who already have an account, these are great gifts for under $25: Beautiful hydrating body mist, Body Butter, Exfoliating body scrub, Body wash
Detox Bath kits- Buy Epsom salts (not scented) and baking soda in bulk. In a jar, mix 2 cups Epsom salt with 5 drops Juniper Berry and 5 drops Rosemary Essential Oil. Have another jar with 1 cup baking soda. This is a recipe for one happy, relaxed and detoxed mommy, or teacher, or wife…..etc You’re welcome!
Buy her a massage! Every woman wants this type of pampering but never puts aside the time nor money to do so. So make sure if you buy this gift that you also permit the time needed to use it (AKA watch the kids) Hehehehe!
Along that note, gift giving can be expensive! Instead of emptying your bank account this year, offer your time instead! Every woman with little kids will burst at the chance to have a FREE babysitter! Seriously, give the gift of your time to your Aunt, your friend, or your neighbor. This is a gift she will never forget!
Infrared Light- Extremely beneficial to all systems of the body. There is also a book called The Ultimate Guide To Red Light Therapy to check out.
Dry Brush kit I love dry brushing and the benefits are ENDLESS! Add Grapefruit essential oil for an invigorating citrus aroma and cellulite smasher, or Pink Pepper essential oil for healthy skin support.
Create a Bullet Proof Coffee Basket!!!! Buy Organic Coffee (chaga mushroom coffee would be an extra bonus), MCT oil, and a jar of Ghee. Then choose an essential oil: Peppermint to awaken the mind, Wild Orange to invigorate your spirit, or Cinnamon to help regulate blood sugar.

FOR THE HOME
Boost your immune system and reduce your toxins and, let’s face it, we all need coffee!
4) FOR THE HOME
Diffuser- get rid of your wall plug-ins, lysol sprays and candles that contain fragrance based endocrine disruptors.. Diffusing Essential oils can purify the air, boost your immune system and elevate your mood without inhaling toxic chemicals. Purchase from your doTERRA account or start one today click HERE! PLEASE don’t purchase oils from Amazon or a health food store because they are not FDA regulated and are full of synthetics and fillers, even if they say organic.
Shower Filter- You may or may not be drinking your tap water, but it’s even worse when it is absorbed directly through your skin and into your lymphatic and circulatory system. This reduces the chlorine and water soluble heavy metals.
2 must have books this year
Girl, wash your face AND PRESENT over perfect!!
FOR THE ATHLETE
For the Crossfit Trainer, The Spartan, The Runner….
Spartan gloves - in NO means am I calling myself an athlete because I naively signed up to run a Spartan BEAST 2 days prior to, without training. That makes me an idiot, not an athlete! However, there were some cool things I found that were helpful like gloves, natural hydration tools, and raw honey for energy!!!
Mustard packets LOL I’m gonna try Liquid Amino Acid drops by Biotics the next time, instead of the nasty mustard.
Honey sticks from Sproutswere my favorite energy boost with all natural glucose and Hydrators like THESE for electrolytes (some have a bit of caffeine as well)
* Suggestion- The Fit Bits are in! But the amount of constant radiation exposure from continuous Wi-Fi signals should be considered. Speaking of radiation….
