The first three days I took these I had SO MUCH ENERGY I had a hard time sleeping, tbh. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I really didn't expect much when I started taking these supplements. I thought, 'I'm only 30, I eat well, I don't need these', but I finally took them just so I could say they didn't work. I was so wrong. The first few days I had so much energy that I couldn't sleep. So I cut the daily recommended dose in half and I felt incredible. Paired with the Serenity softgels I sleep so much better, have far more energy, and my mood is more consistent. My skin is clearer and I feel like all of my body systems function better, which is huge! I notice a huge difference when I miss a few days.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is doTERRA's number one selling product and I honestly rolled my eyes when I heard that because I was like "supplements DON'T WORK". And after 9 months of using doTERRA's oils, I was like, 'fine, okay I'll try these just so I can confidently continue rolling my eyes at them.'
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've been taking Lifelong Vitality consistently for almost a year now and if I had to choose only ONE product from doTERRA, then it would be these. I would cry a thousand tears because I love my oils so much, but THIS alone ups my quality of life significantly and makes me feel like I'm going to be one of those 90 yrs olds hiking mountains. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My live from last night about these supplements are still up if you want to learn more! Or you can check out my old blog post about them! .

Did you take the pop quiz in my story today? 🔮 if you missed it, here are some fun facts: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
😷 Here in the US we take 10x more prescription drugs than we did in the 1950s (and we aren’t healthier) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💉 “Pharmacology” comes from the Greek word for “poison” (turns out it can also mean “potion”) “No difference exists between a drug and a poison except dose” —Dr. Andrew Weil
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🤕 the fourth leading cause of death in the US is from PROPERLY prescribed, PROPERLY dosed, PROPERLY used medication. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🤑 in the US we pay up to twice as much for the same medication used in other countries. Know why? Because of marketing and advertising—not because of research conducted, which BTW is only tested against placebos, not non-drug interventions/lifestyle changes that can often work just as well if not BETTER than drugs. But they don’t make money off of lifestyle changes 🙄 also, we are one of two developed counties that allow for marketing of prescription drugs. (New Zealand is the other).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On top of this, the overuse and misuse of antibiotics has created stronger bacteria that is RESISTANT to our "latest and strongest drugs" and "experts warn that we are coming to the end of the antibiotic era". So let's hang out tonight and I'll talk about ways you can keep your body healthy in a world where the bacteria is stronger than your doctor's medication. Plus, it's August which means it's almost Autumn, which means I'm dying for sweaters, but also, it's when a lot of people start feeling gross. So. Live tonight. 7 pm cst. 8 pm est. 6 pm mst. 5 pm pst. Tag a friend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

How many plants do you have in your home? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here's the thing about plants; they help us be happier, healthier, and healing. You already know how you feel when you're around plants or how happy you are when you see flowers...but sometimes it's nice to have a little scientific study to back up what we already know, right? So here are the benefits of houseplants shown from studies; ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌬 they improve air quality and release oxygen which helps you to breathe easier
🤕 they help lower your blood pressure
🤓 and help you focus
😬 they reduce feelings of anxiousness and stress
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you're looking to reduce stress, it's recommended that you place one large plant (an 8-inch pot or larger) in every 129 sq feet of your home. If I did my math right (and there is a high chance that I did NOT), you'll need approximately 15.5 plants in a 2,000 sq ft house. I have four in my bedroom right now, but that's totally not enough. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Essential oils are also great for reducing anxious/stressful feelings--and they are a good supplement to my lack of houseplants (but I mean, also an excuse to buy more houseplants and oils). I use patchouli nearly every day but have also been drawn to our focus blend that has Patchouli (surprise!), Frankincense, Lime, Ylang Ylang Flower, Hawaiian Sandalwood, and Roman Chamomile essential oils. If you've been feeling overwhelmed or distracted lately message me or leave a comment and let's find something that works for you! #lovewildtribe ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, if you want to know how you can be happier, healthier, and healing with the wild and essential oils, sign up for my email list! I'll be sending out an email once a week starting at the end of August! Link is in my bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Me after therapy: *rolls on past tense because therapy leads to head tension after processing all of that emotion.*
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Therapist: “Do you use oils?”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Me: “I do...”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Therapist: “What are you wearing? Whatever it is has been clearing my sinuses since you got in here.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Me: “oh, I put some On Guard on my throat just before we came in because it was starting to hurt...”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Insert @nathanaelg: “SHE SELLS THEM” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Me: OMG NATHANAEL YOU CANT JUST TELL MY THERAPIST I SELL OILS
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
@nathanaelg: “do you have a diffuser? You should get a diffuser in here...”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Me: **mortified**
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, is it just me, or do you apologize every time someone says “you smell like oils!!” 😂
Live class tonight on essential oils and emotions! Set an alarm ♥️ 7 pm cst. 8 pm est. 6 pm mst. 5 pm pst. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Have you ever lost your phone? I did for the first time today 🤦🏻‍♀️ and by “lost”, I mean “put it on the ground at the playground while helping my kid, then forgot to grab it and left, realized l left it by the tree when I got home, packed up the kids again and went to the park, but someone had grabbed it” and none of the ladies at the park said they had seen it. And guys, I’m super chill when it comes to stuff like this, so it’s not like I was like “OMG HAVE YOU SEEN MY PHONE” just like, “hi, i left my phone by this tree, have you happened to see it?” No one had. So I went home, grabbed our little iPad, found the location of my phone (near the park) turned on the “lost phone mode” and blasted the super annoying lost phone ring. Then I updated the location and my phone was back at the park put into the care of two older ladies who I had spoken to earlier. Basically, I got my phone back 🙏🏿 and it’s a relief mostly because 90% of my dōTERRA business is done through my phone 😅 and I really didn’t want to have to get a new one right now. So today has basically been Monday, but really Tuesday. I’m done today 😂

Apparently it’s been national moth week all week and I had no idea. Shame. So throwback to that one time I found a blinded Sphinx moth. Also, they aren’t blind. They’re just called that cuz of the circles 🤷🏻‍♀️ one day realllllly want to hold a crecopia and an atlas moth. #mothsmatter #mothsmattertoo ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
