Terra Cotta Pendants for your Neck, Wrist, or Car

Since I became a Wellness Advocate for doTERRA, I have been purchasing diffusers for every room in my house and aspect of my life. Essential oils have helped improved my sleep and to balance my emotions throughout the day. They have also assisted in keeping my immunity strong against seasonal threats.

Diffusing essential oils are a great way to enjoy therapeutic benefits. I wanted a way to wear my oils, so Terra Cotta Pendants sent me a neck pendant, diffuser wrap bracelet, and car diffuser to try and review.

How it Works

Essential oils are naturally volatile, which means they evaporate easily, in normal temperatures. When a drop of essential oil is applied to the surface of the terra cotta piece, it is absorbed into the tiny pores of the kiln-fired clay. The essential oil slowly and naturally diffuses into the air, leaving you with a pleasant aroma throughout your day!

Directions for Use

Lay the terra cotta piece flat, and add ONE (or two, MAX) drops of essential oil onto the clay. Let it dry. When it is completely absorbed, it is ready to wear or hang in your car.

I started with the Terra Cotta Arrow Wrap Bracelet. I put two drops of Peppermint on the clay. It took a few minutes to dry completely. The waxed cotton cord was easy to untangle and lay flat. I slipped my wrist through, tightened the bead, and wrapped the bracelet around my wrist. Since I have been wearing this, I have received SO many compliments! Whenever someone asks about my Terra Cotta Arrow Wrap Bracelet, I reply, “SMELL!” and let them experience the refreshing, rejuvenating Peppermint essential oil. When I need a pick-me up during a long shift at work, I inhale slowly and take a deep, calming breath. Not only is the bracelet comfortable, but it holds the smell for a while. When the peppermint smell began to fade (about 4-5 days), I added a drop of Cedarwood, which is great for repelling insects since I have been spending a lot of time outdoors. Not only is the Terra Cotta Arrow Wrap Bracelet a statement piece, but it really helps me get therapeutic benefit from my oils throughout my day.

As most of you know, I have begun more of a holistic journey the beginning of this year after I injured my back. Besides being dairy and gluten free, I have rid my home of artificial everything… I was purchasing the vent sticks for my car, but wanted to find a more holistic approach to keeping my car smelling fresh. I tossed the vent sticks, and added two drops of Wild Orange to my Terra Cotta Joy Car Diffuser. You can get a ticket for hanging anything from your rear-view mirror in New Jersey, so I hung it from my volume dial. Now, when I enter my car, I get the fresh scent of Wild Orange. It truly is fabulous! The Terra Cotta Car Diffuser has a little magnet clasp, too!

The Terra Cotta Neck Pendant featuring an Angel is perfect for doTERRA’s Balance essential oil. doTERRA’s Balance is super grounding, and helps keep me calm, especially during stressful situations at work. The Angel couldn’t have come at a better time. Angels remind me that I have loved ones in Heaven always protecting me, and that when I am at work, it is my job to help others improve and enrich their lives. It serves as a reminder to be somebody’s Angel. I applied one drop of doTERRA’s Balance to the clay, and adjusted the waxed cotton string around my neck. I was inhaling the benefits of doTERRA’s Balance all day, creating the sense of calm that I so often need and desire! The Terra Cotta Pendant is light around my neck, and also attracted many compliments by coworkers and clients.

Final Thoughts

Terra Cotta Pendants are an affordable, portable way to enjoy all of the therapeutic benefits from essential oils.

These would make awesome gifts; purchase an enrollment kit and a Terra Cotta Pendant, wrist wrap, and car diffuser. What a thoughtful and personalized gift!

I highly recommend Terra Cotta Pendants for all day diffusing and to keep your car smelling fresh!

Essential oils: My first order – and why I became a Wellness Advocate

My mentor, Kipper, of One Grace Filled Life, sent me samples of On Guard and Deep Blue essential oils. My immune system is shot; I work in a variety of nursing homes, surrounded by very sick individuals for 8-10 hours a day. I have Epstein Barr, which when active, makes me a useless human being. I have tried everything to boost my immunity, besides essential oils. I fell in love with On Guard, rubbing a few drops mixed with FCO (fractioned coconut oil) on the bottoms of my feet, neck, and hands. Even though On Guard is an energizing scent, I was falling asleep within minutes. (Essential oils react differently for some individuals.) I used Deep Blue on my lower back to help a back ache from the beginning of January. Those two samples weren’t enough, I wanted more.

I ordered the AromaTouch Diffused Kit which includes 5 mL bottles of:

  • Balance
  • On Guard
  • Lavender
  • Malaleuca
  • AromaTouch
  • Deep Blue
  • Wild Orange
  • Peppermint

It also includes:

  • Fractioned Coconut Oil (FCO), 4 oz.
  • Petal Diffuser
  • Wellness Advocate Introductory Packet

I added to my order:

  • 15 mL Slim & Sassy
  • 15 mL bottle On Guard
  • 15 mL bottle Lavender
  • On Guard Whitening Toothpaste

Needless to say, I was a little overwhelmed when my package came! I started by setting up the Petal Diffuser right next to my bed and adding a few drops of Lavender essential oil. My husband walked in the room after 15 minutes and said, “It smells like a frickin’ spa in here, Danielle!” That night, we both slept like babies!

My mom, a massage therapist, gave me a back massage with the AromaTouch essential oil. This could be applied directly to your skin, and is branded as a massage blend. My mom mixed AromaTouch with lotion and the scent was fantastic. Deep Blue, needs to be diluted with a carrier oil, such as FCO, but helps cool and soothe the skin (great for athletes).

I love adding a drop to Slim & Sassy to my water; which contains grapefruit, lemon, peppermint, ginger and cinnamon. I get a mason jar, fill it with ice, add a drop of Slim & Sassy, fill with filtered water, and enjoy my beverage. It helps maintain my girlish figure, gives my metabolism a boost, and tastes great!

I have been using Tom’s of Maine Antiplaque and Whitening Fluoride-Free Toothpaste for years. (Affiliate Link) The On Guard Natural Whitening Toothpaste is amazing. It has a cinnamon and mint flavor. My teeth feel super clean and my breath is fresh. My husband said it was “different,” but that if it helps keep maintain his pearly whites, he has no problem using it daily.

I diffused Wild Orange, Peppermint, and Slim & Sassy in my kitchen. Wild Orange is a powerful cleanser and purifies the air. Peppermint promotes healthy respiratory function, and with this crazy NJ weather, my allergies have been out of control! The Slim & Sassy I diffuse before I go to the gym; it is energizing and uplifting.

When I am blogging, I put a drop or two of Balance, which is a grounding blend that promotes well-being and calmness, in my palms, rub together, and inhale. It is very woodsy and relaxing. It allows me to just write freely without judgment.

The Melaleuca (tea tree) oil is a favorite during my beauty regimen. I add a drop to my facial cleaner, moisturizer, or shampoo. If I don’t use the Slim & Sassy in my water, I add a drop of Melaleuca, which helps boost immunity. When we have the wood burner going, we add a few drops to the steamer, and it fills the room with a very earthy scent.

Many essential oils can be used as cleaning agents. I will update when I experiment! 🙂

Purchasing the AromaTouch Diffused Kit was a great decision. Not only was it economical, but I got to incorporate and sample 8 different essential oils.


So, Danielle, how do I order?

Option 1 – Wholesale, 25% off all products, STRONGLY RECOMMENDED

With a wholesale membership, you get 25% off all products. There is no requirement to spend an amount, or to purchase every month, or to sell anything. It’s like a membership to BJ’s or Costco, except you can get the membership FREE if you buy an enrollment kit.

Purchase an enrollment kit and get free membership:

  • Click HERE. If you need my Sponsor ID, it is 4191408.
  • Choose one of the enrollment kits as your first product and the $35 USD membership fee will be waived.
  • See details on the enrollment kits here (window will open in a new tab).
  • Both my mom and I purchased the $150 USD AromaTouch Diffused Kit.

I don’t want an enrollment kit, so I will pay the $35 membership fee:

  • Sign up here with my Sponsor ID, 4191408, and choose ‘Wholesale’.
  • Choose your products ‘a la carte’, and the $35 fee will be added.
  • Membership renewal costs $25 after the first year, but you get a free bottle of Peppermint ($27.33 USD, retail).

Option 2 – Retail

I really don’t recommend this option. This is for the person who wants to order one or two oils and then very seldom, or never, order…

  • Visit my shop, click the “SHOP” tab, add your items and check-out like you would any other shopping website.
  • Thanks for shopping with me!
  • Note: I know that you see some of these products on Amazon from retailers. I would be extremely cautious ordering from retailers because you don’t know exactly where they are coming from, and if they are 100% pure. Besides, wouldn’t you want ME to guide you on your essential oil experience?

Option 3: FREE IS FOR ME! – Earn free products or build a business

  • Simply sign up here with my Sponsor ID, 4191408, when prompted, choose “Wholesale”.
  • Select the option to become a Wellness Advocate.
  • E-mail me to let me know you’ve joined; I will be HAPPY to help you get started.
  • I was hesitant to become a Wellness Advocate. I really don’t need another thing on my already full plate. If I can help myself and others through natural and holistic methods, while having fun and making money, then why not? Besides, I love trying new products (hello, product reviews!).

How do I make money and/or get free products?

  • I would be happy to discuss enrollment into a LRP (Loyalty Reward Program) with you. A LRP is like an auto-ship enrollment (like on Amazon). You can edit your order up until the day before auto-ship will take place. You earn percentages off and points. Contact me to learn more: realmofvibesdg@gmail.com.

It is super easy to implement essential oils into your life. Between diffusing them, rubbing them on your sore spots, and adding them to your favorite drink, essential oils can provide a huge therapeutic benefit, along with a pay check for my entrepreneurs.

My House Stinks: How I Naturally Control the Animal Smell

*This post contains affiliate links and a sponsored item.

Having three animals (sometimes four with a foster dog) live in our home can make for a pretty stinky house. My husband and I have an intense cleaning regimen (lots of laundry and vacuuming!) to keep the stench at bay. After we are done cleaning, we have discovered some easy ways to add natural and safe aromas to our home:

Candles

20170209_121933

I’m pretty picky with the candles that are in my home. Many candles emit harmful toxins into the air, causing medical issues over long term use. Seeking OM sent me a soy wax, hand poured, crystal infused candle. It is rose scented through natural essential oils and has no dyes or fillers. This candle stimulates the Heart chakra and represents love, self-love, and relationships. Seeking OM offers a variety of candle sizes (6 oz., 12 oz., and 24 oz.) and scents (cedarwood, lavender, eucalyptus, lemon, cinnamon, ylang-ylang, and patchouli). The rose scent smells like a bouquet of flowers, and really made the entryway near my kitchen very fragrant. The kitchen is the heart of the house, and when something good isn’t cooking, we always have this candle lit.

Smudge Stick

I try to smudge my house on a weekly basis. I light a sage smudge stick, open a window, and venture from room to room to purify the air. Smudging brings clarity, harmony, and love. It rids any negative vibes. Sage is used for healing (sage tea is great to soothe sore throats). The scent is overpowering and lingers, but smells clean and removes any bad odors. I use the New Age smudge sticks below:

Stovetop Aromatherapy

You can Pinterest or Google stovetop aromatherapy and find a million different recipes for creating a natural home fragrance that is inexpensive, easy, and inexpensive. Start with a saucepan and add:

  • 2-4 cups of water
  • Slices of ginger, lemon, lime, orange, or apple
  • Cinnamon sticks or vanilla
  • Herbs: rosemary, bay leaves, cloves

Play around with the different varieties to find your perfect scent. Turn on the stove and let it simmer. Within an hour, your house will smell fresh and clean. I include Simply Organic Cinnamon Sticks below.

Reed Diffuser

I use the SunLeaf reed diffusers that are made in the USA, and free of synthetic dyes, chemical fragrances, sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and petrochemicals. They do not test on animals. There scents are blends of essential oils, which can provide therapeutic benefit. I typically put reed diffusers in my office and laundry room. My favorite is the lemon/vetiver combination below.

Final Thoughts

It makes us proud when people come over and say, “Wow, it smells really good in here! It doesn’t smell like you have animals!” Maintaining our cleaning schedule is paramount, but adding all natural scents helps make our house feel like a home.

So, my lovely readers, what do you use in your home? How important is it for you to use natural products?

Until next time…

Namaste.
