Clip ‘n’ climb

I loved to climb back in the day. But after a fall while bouldering I never ‘got back on the horse’ but nothing prepared me for the thrill of seeing my lad take to it like a natural, and enjoy it as much as his mama once did.

It’s a wild ride

I haven’t written all year. (or have I? I don’t remember. Sad, right?!)

Many things have changed since my last writing (whenever that was).  Many, many things, many many changes!  Like I don’t remember how big I used to make my images for this blog? And how long has it been since I last too a photograph with the D800? weeks? no, MONTHS!

We now live in New Zealand. New Zealand people. Land of the long white cloud. Land of my birth, land of my heart.

Macallum and I arrived at the end of February and Mike came in June.  I went to go get him, leaving Mac here for 13 days. I kept telling him about a surprise I was going to bring back for him. He thought it was his scooter…but actually it was his two besties Kenny and Cori.

This last month has been packed full of fun things for the 3 amigo’s. I’ve loved having them together again.

A very windy day at Birdlings Flat.

Year of the Super Hero – February – love potions and Lice

What’s new in the Whare?We’re not really going to talk Austin Powers baby! But let’s chat about some loooooooooove potions & new happenings in the whare. I am down to less than 2 weeks before we jet outta here for who knows how long?!.  My ongoing support and commitment will continue via email/online until I get my mobile capabilities and text messaging up and running in NZ. I am excited for this new adventure and the opportunity to share heath and wellness with my people in NZ. I’ve loved being able to share natural solutions here in the US (and beyond) but like you, my fellow Kiwis will benefit from essential oils and natural wellness products in their lives. NZ is already open to natural healthcare options so we will be able to hit the ground running! Mike is choosing to join me in “our” doTERRA business when he gets to New Zealand. This is a great step for us because NO ONE could of been more skeptical about the therapeutic use of essential oils than Mike. But over the last couple of years he has really opened up to natural solutions, through his own research and experiences with oil solutions for some of his concerns. Like ADD, pain/inflammation, anxiety and depression, candida issues. He has come a loooooooooooooong way in natural healing. My friends and mentors David and Sarah will be taking over the newsletter writing for awhile, however I will be contributing a regular column called Kiwi Corner. They are my direct upline and have recently opted in to the amazing doTERRA business opportunity! I am really excited to work with them and to contribute Kiwi Corner!  Kiwi corner will be a little about life in New Zealand and sharing doTERRA in international markets. Mac (my boy) will pop in from time to time also, so might my big boy Kieran,and I can almost guarantee Olivia (my granddaughter) will be an appearance in the column. I’ve known Sarah for about 8 years or so I think. We attended the same church together soon after I arrived in the US. LOVE her! I met David for the first time when I photographed their wedding 18 months ago. They have blended 2 families together on a rural property near El Dorado Hills to create a whole new set of crazy and awesome. David is a trained Family & Marriage therapist and is currently working in the mental health field. Sarah works in a Doctors office and runs their world from the drivers seat of the family car, like most Mama’s do, in between ferrying kids in several directions. She’s also a great photographer! I know what you’re thinking, enough with the photographers already!I’m sure you are going to love them as much I do! If you do NOT wish to be on the list of subscribers for their newsletter please let me know as I will be merging our lists before I go. I will try to keep up with my communications with you but forgive my tardiness in the first few weeks as we settle into NZ and scramble to get things organized. 


But let’s get started with what’s happening for FEBRUARY:
Who’s new
Hand, Foot & Mouth
Love potions.

Oils in our whanau/family: 

Hand, foot and mouth disease came to visit – Mac got it and I treated the itchiness with a couple of combinations. Combo 1/ Birch and Peppermint  combo 2/ Purify and Peppermint ( I did 10 drops each in a spray bottle with coconut oil) Generally since you shouldn’t ever TOUCH a rash, he was able to spritz these combo’s on as he needed. The first night of itching was unbearable for him, I tried everything and nothing was bringing sustainable relief so I prayed, and he prayed. He received an answer to use Sandalwood. I only had about 3 drops in the bottom of the bottle so we added a little coconut to stretch it a bit further. He did get relief but it was short lived, and I didn’t have anymore to help him out. Terrible Mama moment!   It wasn’t until 5 am the following morning that I worked out the two combo’s above. First I rubbed the affected areas with FCO and then put Oregano oil on top, everywhere he had spots got doused in Oregano.. Then I used the Birch/Peppermint combo. He was finally able to get some sleep soon after. The following day he alternated combos and the time between applications increased steadily throughout the day. THANK GOODNESS!  He also took the On Guard beadlets every hour for the viral infection. The beadlets are wonderful for children because they are so tiny and are easy to swallow. My kid has difficulty swallowing capsules but had no trouble with the beadlets. He set the timer every hour to remind himself to be proactive in his healing. After talking with Dr Tad, who informed me that Mac would no longer be contagious after the spots crusted over, I waited and waited and waited. Because we were treated them with oils they never crusted over, they just disappeared. So I was a little confused as to how long he would still be contagious lol. We just quarantined ourselves until a few days after his spots disappeared just to be safe.

I am dealing with some stress related blood pressure issues and am now using 3 drops each of basil, lavender and marjoram in a capsule 2 x a day and having success with it keeping the numbers more reasonable. I know, I know…. “you’re stressed because you’re moving to New Zealand – whine whine whine”:)I am also using regular applications of Roman Chamomile and Balance on my feet throughout the day, to help keep myself calm(er). This too shall pass, right?! Once I am on the ground in Auckland airport I will be chillin’ like a villain’ again.


Are your children loving the oils? Do they have a favourite oil? Perhaps they want to share their favourite ways of using oils with us. Let me know if they have something to share because I would LOVE to add their story. Many of us are Mamas (or grandies) and let’s face it, sometimes we need a village!

Mac is a dinosaur nut. He eats, sleeps and breathes dinosaurs. What he doesn’t know about dinosaurs isn’t worth knowing. He loves to teach people about them all the time. He talks dinosaur non-stop to his family, friends at school, and classmates at church, to anyone and everyone who will listen (or won’t listen). But he also likes to teach people about essential oils. When his teacher injured her hand badly he told her to use some lavender on it. When he came home from school that day he asked me (his mother) for some lavender so he could take it to school for her. I made up a blend of oils good for healing the skin and she used it, loved it AND healed quickly!. But Mac also told her that he worries about her being out on yard duty in the sun all the time and she should use peppermint on the back of her neck to cool her down, and lavender if she gets sunburnt. He smiled from ear to ear when she called him “Her Oil Expert”.  Another teacher asked him what he thought they should do to calm the class down, she told me he stop up and said “I think diffusing some Serenity Oil would be a good idea”. Although he loves to teach others and share the oils, sharing about oils with him is really empowering generations to be proactive in their health care. Not just him, but his children and beyond. This is a good work we do for our families.
Let me tell you about some of the ways Mac uses oils. One of his super weekly chores is to clean his bathroom. I am grateful he can use essential oils to clean without harm of chemically laden toxic products. He uses Lemon, white vinegar and water to clean the mirror, the On Guard concentrate for the toilet and floors and he can also make up a paste of baking soda, On Guard concentrate to make an awesome scrubbing paste. He can do all that himself and it’s not harmful to him to do so.
He has his own set of oils beside his bed. In the mornings before school he will rub InTune and DDR Prime on his feet (he puts socks over top because he gets teased for being ‘stinky’). He mists his sheets and pillow with a mix of On Guard and water to keep it cootie free and smelling fresh and clean. Keeping his mouth On Guard clean is easy since he really loves the On Guard toothpaste.  For cuts he will instantly apply his owie spray of Lavender and Melalueca before applying Helichrysum to stop the bleeding. A tummy ache gets DigestZen. He likes Roman Chamomile applied to his feet to help himself settle easily at night. He gets growing pains in his legs often, so during the night he will put some deep blue rub and lavender on his legs, and then tells me about it in the morning. Recently he had a nasty bout of hand, foot and mouth disease and once we found a good remedy for the itching, he could self-administer as needed, even in the middle of the night. THAT is super powerful people! Mama gets to sleep while he takes care of himself naturally. But seriously though, not only am I grateful that I can empower him to use natural medicines but I also know he is safe to do so. I also love that learning more and more about essential oils is giving him a vehicle to serve others. He can give a perfect Aromatouch Technique and has served his family many times by doing a Symphony of the Cells protocol to help us with specific issues.

His favourite oil is Peppermint. He LOVES the smell and taste, especially in hot chocolate. 

Promotions & Specials:

The roller tops are great to use with the kids. Mac has several on the bottles of oil he has beside his bed! Makes it super easy for him to apply in the middle of the night, for nightmares, restless leg syndrome, tummy aches etc.

On Special this month “WHISPER”
I love whisper, I didn’t at first but every time I wore it MIKE (my hubby) was like a puppy dog in love. He would follow me around lol. So I started wearing it for him, it seems easier than make-up, and less expensive and toxic than perfume. Now I order it regularly because I love the smell and I feel some calming benefits from it. I often use it in my deodorant blend.
I was at church in another area recently and I knew there were some people that used doTERRA in the crowd because I could smell them. I was wearing some whisper on my pulse points as usual and a woman walked passed me and said “Oh you smell lovely, what are you wearing?” I quietly replied “Whisper”.  She then said “You smell lovely, what are you wearing?” IN A WHISPERING VOICE!!!!!! I burst into fits of laughter not knowing if she was really making a purposeful joke or whether she really thought I meant for her to whisper! haha and I still to this day don’t know for sure if she was just being funny or not.And yes, I still laugh about it when I think about it.
If you haven’t got yourself a bottle of whisper, be sure to treat yourself this month while it is on sale. I think you will really come to love WHISPER, and perhaps a special guy in your life will too!
But don’t just take my word for it, HERE is a webinar from Dr Lawton about the benefits of whisper that could convince you to order some on your next loyalty rewards program order TODAY!.But this is a synopsis:

Free Product of the Month “OREGANO” (with qualifying 125PV LRP over)

(Origanum Vulgare)Natural Anti-bioticWARNING: Oregano can cause skin irritation or a very hot sensation – dilute 1:3 and follow up with Lavender or additional fractionated coconut oil. If a pregnant woman has not used essential oils previously, remember that Oregano can simulate menstruation, so use with great caution.HOT, HOT, HOTOregano is steam distilled from leaves, and has a pungent (spicy, tangy and hot) and penetrating herbal scent.Oregano (Origanum Vulgare): antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-parasitic, antiseptic (amazing when diffused or spritzed into areas in eliminating air borne viruses and neg.grm.bacteria), antiviral, immune stimulant, lice repellent, whooping cough, warming and calming. (Due to the purity of dōTERRA Oregano very little goes a long way – use very little and then reapply every half hour if you need to.)Oregano is a very effective essential oil that knocks out common intestinal, skin and lung infections, including staph, strep and pneumonia. Oregano may be helpful with colds, asthma, bacterial and viral pneumonia, bronchitis (chronic), mental disease, pulmonary tuberculosis, athlete’s foot, skin parasites, jock itch (always diluted).Airborne viruses are tricky and elusive little critters; colds, flu, herpes, shingles, mumps, chicken pox and even warts. One of the most unpleasant things about viruses is that they use your cells as a host, even to the point of manipulating DNA and RNA, which provide instructions for cell operations. This makes viruses especially difficult to eradicate without harming your own cells. Medical science can’t touch most viral infections – when a doctor prescribes an antibiotic for a viral infection it is only to try to help you with the bacterial infection that might follow the weakened immune system left by the viral infection. Their adaptogenic and opportunistic nature is amazing and their ability to hide in the spine or fatty tissues and warm places in the body surprises us when we get a little overtired and then feel sick in the throat or intestines.

As a nerve tonic, Oregano calms and quiets almost any nervous upset. (Oregano 2 drops, Lavender 4 drops, DigestZen 3 drops in capsule). It is relaxing and can help overcome insomnia. It can ease irritability and tension. It reduces stress and anxiety while restoring emotional balance. It helps to clarify thinking and promote a positive attitude.

MRSA (Methicillin Resistant Staphylocococus Aureus) -Basically any infection that antibiotics can no longer help with because the bacteria is adaptogenic and the viruses are smarter than the chemicals (Antibiotics)—often picked up in hospitals when an opening in the body allows entry (wound, cut, mouth etc.) with weakened immune system. Drink plenty of water, use oils on the bottoms of feet every hour – whether the infection is in soft tissue or bone – Oregano, On Guard, Frankincense –3 drops of each followed by coconut oil, to cool off in like 10 minutes, unless too hot –apply coconut oil as needed–put on thick cotton socks, next, in hour use Lavender, Lemon and Melaleuca – 3 drops of each on the bottoms of feet. Keep up hourly rotation until fever is reduced and then use oils every 4 hours for 3 days and then twice a day for 5 days. dōTERRA CPTG essential oils have proven
effective with infections that medication cannot – trust mother nature to do the job but allow time for them to work and keep person hydrated.

Suggested ProtocolsA few uses when a little bit of Oregano motivate change and recovery:

 Post Traumatic Syndrome: on the hands use 3-4 drops of Lavender, 3 drops of Elevation, and 2 drops of Oregano. Rub combination into hands and wrists like it is hand lotion and allow person to inhale gently and keep rubbing until oils are absorbed – drink water.

 Skin Tags: apply Oregano undiluted on skin tags each night and watch them disappear – if becomes too warm after application, and then apply coconut oil to cool down or lavender.

 Candida overgrowth: ingest oils in capsule – Myrrh 2 drops, Melaleuca 4 drops,Oregano 2 drops, Coconut oil 4 drops, — 3 times a day with food for at least 10 days. PB Assist, GX Assist also excellent for diminishing.

 Sore Throat – Justin’s Remedy : 2 drops of Oregano in water and gargle – but be prepared for a serious heat on the sore area –very strong – you will definitely get rid of whatever was hurting your throat quickly – but it is very strong!! Can gargle again in 4 hours.

 Thrush in the mouth: use Oregano 2 drops, mixed with vegetable oil 15 drops, and swab the inside of the mouth.

 Nail Fungus: Toenails – apply around the nail bed and on top of the nail; Oregano 1 drop, Melaleuca 4 drops, Myrrh 2 drops, and Lavender 4 drops – apply each morning and evening consistently.

 Aggressive Nail Fungus Remedy: apply only on the toe that has manifested fungus and not on sore skin or blisters: Oregano 3 drops, Thyme 2 drops, and Fractionated Coconut Oil 10 drops. Apply morning and night.

 Fingernail Fungus: Melaleuca 4 drops, Myrrh 3 drops, and Lemon 4 drops – message into cuticle and around nail bed several times a day.

 Chronic sinus issues: apply on bottoms of feet nightly – roller bottle fine – Oregano 2 drops, Roman Chamomile 5 drops, Lavender 6 drops, and Fractioned Coconut Oil 5 drops. Must keep this up for at least three weeks consistently.

 Warts on the bottoms of the feet: Planter’s Wart – Oregano 2 drops, On Guard 2 drops, and Lavender 4 drops, put on cotton socks, each night, keep applying even though pain is gone and may be difficult to detect wart until the natural whorls of the foot print are visible in the sunlight.

If Lice Settlements have been reported in your school or work environment:

To prevent Lice: add 4 drops of oregano to a mixture of 1-ounce vinegar and 1 ounce of water. Use as a hair rinse.

If a Lice Settlement chooses your head, to get rid of it:
1. Mix 20 drops of Melaleuca, 10 drops of Rosemary, 8 drops of Oregano, 8 drops of Lavender, and 2 ounces of vegetable oil.

2. Apply the oil to dry hair, cover with a plastic bag or shower cap, and then wrap your head in a towel.
3. After 1 hour, shampoo your hair without wetting it first to help remove the oil, rinse and shampoo again. (If your head feels irritated before the hour is up go ahead and rinse out right away).

4. Lice eggs are very resistant, so repeat this treatment in a week and then again in 2 weeks to destroy any newly hatched lice.

In between treatments do a preventive hair rinse. Add the same number of drops as above to 1 cup of vinegar, shake the mixture very well then add . cup of it to 1 cup of water and use this as your final hair rinse, making sure you rub it well into your scalp. Lightly rinse with water.
Immune System Booster: Apply to the entire bottom of the feet 9 nights in a row and put on thick cotton socks: (Apply in layers as individual oils.) 2-3 drops of each Balance, Basil, Thyme, Oregano, Wild Orange, Wintergreen, Cypress, Marjoram, and Peppermint. Optional next – can be soothing and warming. Pyrex (glass) rectangle heated to 160 degrees after socks on wrap big towel under dish and up and over with stocking feet inside the nice warm glass dish for 10 minutes.
With doTERRA exceptional oils we cook with them and season with them. Oregano can be added to stews and casseroles when the boiling stops and the cool down happens. It takes very little amounts of the oil to affect the flavor. I use it in my tortellini Salad dressing and in pasta sauce. Anywhere in place of dried oregano and I do 1 drop to substitute 1 tsp of dried oregano.

I was thinking about issues that I face as I age and feel less happy about bulging, lumpy bits and how much it relates to my sense of attractiveness or even desire. So I was thrilled when I saw that Dana (a member of our team here) was ramping up her health coaching posts on facebook again.

Me and Mine | December 2013

OOPS, that should have said NOVEMBER, not December, my bad.


The goal was to take a family photo on Thanksgiving, I spent the day cooking up an epic meal for the family but took a moment to run out and grab a quick image with Mac.

Am I the only one with Halloween things out still



I have been LOVING the weather this time of year, it’s cooler but still sunny. So we’ve been trying to get a few hikes in here and there. I couldn’t find anywhere to set my camera so we took family shots separately. It’s not an omen on the state of our family or anything I promise! lol.




check out the Happy Days of Hope Toliver | Tulsa Senior and Family Natural Light Photographer, I’m sure some delicious eye candy awaits!
