I was sent three products from dōTERRA which include Deep Blue Rub, On Guard Drops, and On Guard Throat Drops.  I received these products free of charge in exchange for an honest review.  

The first product I was eager to try was the Deep Blue Rub.   Between my sore muscles from working out to my husbands off and on neck pain this was a grab all for us both. I first applied it to my husbands neck.   The smell was very similar to other muscle creams which is very minty but not to much that it feels like you can't breathe.  After applying it I did wash my hands but even after washing my hands I did notice 20 minutes later that my hands were tingly...even after washing them.   I was very pleased with this product and so was my husband!  Deep Blue Rub is a great product to use for any muscle ache or pain.  
About Deep Blue:  The soothing combination of Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Blue Tansy, German Chamomile, Helichrysum, and Osmanthus found in Deep Blue® products are a powerful ally when suffering from the occasional achy muscles. By offering penetrating and sustained results, this blend helps in the fight against discomfort. Available as a cream or roll-on for easy application, Deep Blue Soothing Blend is what sore joints and muscles are crying out for.

The next product was the On Guard Drops!   On Guard is one of the most popular and versatile dōTERRA® CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils blends. The proprietary combination of Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary essential oils is an active component in a first line of defense for immune support. It is a non-toxic and superb way to support the immune system. The On Guard Protective Blend has been integrated into a variety of dōTERRA products to provide diverse ways to use its powerful benefits.

I have never used drops before for a defense but I think it might be a great addition to add daily as a teacher!   Kids at home and kids at school I am always around many different germs.  You can add a couple drops to many drinks and not really taste it!  

I thought with the arrival of spring cold season was over but I was wrong.   I was very satisfied with these throat drops when I woke up with a sore throat.   I was nervous to taste these because I am not a fan of lemon but to my surprise they are not lemon flavored but mint! I am happy to report that these did give me relief but more importantly my cold never got worse and it was one of the quickest colds I have ever had!   I am very thrilled with that result and will keep these throat drops handy next winter! 

Don't let flu season catch you off guard! doTERRA®'s On Guard Protecting Throat Drops provide a convenient way to benefit from On Guard's immune-supporting properties. With all-natural organic cane juice and organic brown rice syrup, these drops help support fixed and mobile immune function, and can help calm and soothe dry, scratchy throats.

I have a lot to learn in the essential oil area and I am more eager to learn after trying these products out.   What is your favorite essential oil?   What are the reasons you use essential oil?

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
