Learning Journey of Essential Oils
There is far more to natural remedies then just scent. Essential OIls are very healing.
Safety of Essential Oils
Ever wonder if essential oils are safe to use? Well I did so I decided to do some research. I found my way to Sacred Scent.
According to the facebook page, "Sacred Scent is a sister program of the Sacred Living Movement created by Anni Daulter, and explores the true spirit of aromatherapy and the diverse nature of essential oils. Sacred Scent is created by Lety Murphy, a woman of many hats including an Aromatherapist, Herbalist, Breastfeeding Counselor, Doula, Postpartum Doula, business owner and holds a Masters Degree.
Now there is far more to natural remedies then just scent; one needs caution, education and awareness to ensure the safety for all utilizing herbs, teas and essential oils. This was the very first lesson I learned in this essential oils training. I learned a lot about essential oils safety in pregnancy and in life itself.
I found my way to doTERRA oils and I love the quality of these therapeutic grade oils. I loved all the ethical and helping hands concepts of the company and became an Independent Wellness Advocate.
This is my Essential Oil website.
Because I know that the doTERRA oils are well researched, third party tested, and grown in their natural habit, I feel safe recommending these oils in my business A Sacred Journey. We are now offering classes to educate mothers and others.

Here is a DIY Recipe I found on my doTERRA website in the DIY Section.
DIY: Heating Pad
DoTERRA DIY Heating Pad
This is one of my favourite things I make, all the time' for work.
Tube or dress sock
3 cups flaxseed or rice
doTERRA essential oil(s)
Pour flaxseed or rice into sock.
Tie a knot and you're done.
To use, place in microwave for 2-3 minutes and then add 2 drops essential oil.
If you smell burning while microwaving your heating pad, you are microwaving it too long. Try cutting down the heating time or lowering the power setting to 50%.
Use the leftover fabric to make hand warmers.
Homemade heating pads make great gifts. Give a heating pad with a bottle of your favorite doTERRA essential oil to friends and loved ones for a practical gift they are sure to love!
Editors Note: If you don't have a microwave, you can heat your heating pad by putting it in an oven-safe dish and heating it in the oven at 150 degrees for 15 minutes. Remember to set a timer and to frequently check your heating pad to make sure it doesn't get too hot and become a fire hazard.
CAUTION: The heating pad will be very warm and can burn you if you heat it for too long. Start by putting your heating bag in the microwave for 1 minute, and then increase by 30 second increments until you have achieved your desired temperature. If you accidentally heat it for too long, let it rest until it becomes cooler. You might also want to place a wash cloth or towel against your skin to act as a barrier and to ensure you don't get burned in case you heat it more than you intended.
