If you think about using essential oils what application do you think of?

B)  Internally (on tongue, in water or even cooking with them)  

C)  Topically (even on specific areas of the body
Types of Oil Users:

A)  SMELL SO PRETTY, but keep it simple!

You tend to use one or more diffusers in the house and want a single oil (maybe a DoTerra blend) to diffuse. Typically your looking for scents you are drawn to and aren’t really interested in the properties each oil possess but more in what they smell like and how it can be easily used. 


B)  HOLISITC HEALER

You are someone who has heard from a naturopath or friend about the benefits using essential oils can have on you and you would like to encorporate oils into your healthy lifestyle practices, this may be preventive or to aid in treating conditions.   The smell of certain oils aren’t necessarily your primary concern but more the properties they possess.

C)  GUIDED EMOTIONS

You want to use your oils for mood enhancers or to help guide you through feelings such as overcoming fears, dealing with loss or even to help energize.  You are interested in using oils for their healing and emotional benefits but also will start to associate smells with certain feelings. 

Sample Oil Usage for Balancing your Chakras:

Chili Lime Prawns

We love these spicy little prawns and usually skewer them so we can just throw them on the BBQ!  I have served them as an appetizer with an Avocado Lime Yogurt Dip or tonight we just served on a salad.   Quick, tasty and easy. 

In a bowl mix together

  • Couple gloves garlic
  • 1-3 drops Lime Oil
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil

Dump in peeled prawns and stir until coated, the skewer prawns and BBQ until cooked

If you want to try a dip with them, here is an easy and refreshing one:

  • Glove garlic
  • Drop or two of lime
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 pitted avocado

Mix all above ingredients in a food processor until desired consistancy is reached. 

Hope you all enjoy this recipe and shared with family and friends.
