Essential Oils have medicinal and therapeutic benefits, and can be used as natural alternatives in holistic and wellness practices.
Aromatherapy and Essential Oils have been used throughout history beginning with the ancient Egyptians and Greeks. They are used today for both physical and emotional wellness. Essential oils are non water-based phytochemicals made up of volatile aromatic compounds. Pure therapeutic grade essential oils are the safest, purest, and most beneficial oils to use. They are extracted and steam distilled from the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers and other parts of a plant. Essential oils are used three ways: diffused aromatically, applied topically and taken internally as dietary supplements. doTerra Essential Oils are 100 percent pure, contain no artificial ingredients and are free of contaminants, pesticides and other chemicals.

Craft Your Own Fire Cider!
Mmm…mmm…how I love this hot and sweet, zesty, vinegary recipe!
Fire Cider is a traditional remedy with deep roots in folk medicine. The tasty combination of vinegar infused with powerful anti-microbial, decongestant, and spicy circulatory movers makes this recipe especially pleasant and easy to incorporate into your daily diet to help boost natural immune system processes, stimulate digestion, and get you nice and warmed up on cold days.
Because this is a folk preparation, the ingredients can change from year to year depending on when you make it and what’s growing around you. The standard base ingredients are apple cider vinegar, garlic, onion, ginger, horseradish, and hot peppers, but there are plenty of other herbs that can be thrown in for added kick. This year I had lots of spicy jalapenos and vibrant rosemary in the garden, so I used those along with some organic turmeric powder in the cupboard and fresh lemon peel. Some people like to bury their fire cider jar in the ground for a month while it extracts and then dig it up during a great feast to celebrate the changing of the seasons.
Fire Cider can be taken straight by the spoonful, added to organic veggie juice (throw in some olives and pickles and think non-alcoholic, health boosting bloody mary!), splashed in fried rice, or drizzled on a salad with good olive oil. You can also save the strained pulp and mix it with shredded veggies like carrots, cabbage, broccoli, and fresh herbs to make delicious and aromatic stir-fries and spring rolls! I like to take 1 tbsp each morning to help warm me up and rev the immune system, or 3 tbsp if I feel the sniffles coming on.
