Free online natural solutions class.

Hi! I have received a lot of comments from people who are interested in learning more about essential oils but they can't make it to my classes -- either because of location or scheduling conflicts. So, I'm turning to the web and videos to provide an alternative to the in-person class :-)

In this self-paced, online class you'll learn what essential oils are, how to use them, and how to get the highest-quality oils in your home.

I have had amazing successes with essential oils and have incorporated them into many areas of my life. I clean with them, use them in my facial cleansers and moisturizers, rely on them to help with hormone balancing, and turn to them for life's little emergencies -- including the occasional sore muscle :-)

I hope that once you've viewed these videos you'll see why I am so excited about these gifts of the earth!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions -- either by email at felicehalf at yahoo dot com or call/text 518-331-6036.

April and May.

Well. Here I am, two months after my last post. Where have those two months gone?

They were filled with baseball games, birthday celebrations, and essential oils classes, mostly! It really has been a bit of a whirlwind around here.

I also got in some running and have been progressing fairly nicely.

April miles: 59.3

May miles: 63.9

Compare that to where I started the year -- a measly half-mile at the end of January -- and, hooray! I'm happy for the miles I'm running these days.

I'm also happy for the fun my two boys have been having playing baseball. The regular season has ended for both of them but my little guy had a great time in his first season of t-ball and my big just-turned-8 year old loved every minute of his farm season. His team did well in the playoffs, making it to the championship game, but ultimately losing in a hard-played game. He's now moving on to All-Stars so we have another "season" of baseball ahead of us!


Getting a hit in the semi-finals.

The 8-year-old requested a baseball stadium cake -- so I got busy and made one :-)

 Have a great week, everyone!

Post-running injury disorder.

As I've been making my way back from my hamstring injury in November, I've realized something about myself: I am, on the one hand, full of joy because I am running. On the other hand . . . I am full of fear . . . because I am running.

This is real.

I've been contemplating signing up for a 5K now that I'm able to run 5 miles comfortably. But, I haven't pulled the trigger. I just keep contemplating it.

And I keep talking myself out of signing up.

Why? Because I'm afraid of re-injury, sure. But why else? Because I'm -- and this is so vain I don't even like to admit it -- well, I'm afraid my race time will be too slow.

Now, before you jump all over me and say that slow is relative and my slow is someone else's fast and all that  . . . let me stop you and say, I know all that. I do. And I get it.

However, it does not change the feeling that I have about my times. I don't really care what my times are in relation to anyone else's times. I care what they are in relation to me. And now I'm feeling like my speed is gone. Like I'm at that point where I'm not getting any faster and, in fact, will see only slower times ahead. Like I'm the Pokey Runner. 

This is totally a case of post-running injury disorder.

See, I spent 9 weeks not running At. All. And when I got back to it I was running only a half mile at a time. I can totally understand why I was feeling unsure about my running back then. Even when I'd gotten up to a full mile, I was still feeling pain.

Now, though, I'm not. I'm good to go. Good to run. Good to race.

So, why not go for it, already?!?

It's the fear. I know. And I know I've got to get over it.

Today, I actually made a little progress. I ran 4+ miles and then tacked on 5 hill repeats (for about another mile). This was the first time I've run anything close to speedwork since before the marathon. It was a big step, for sure.

We'll see if it helps shake the fear. 

I need that powerful weapon back!

I'll be working on it. 

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Get started with essential oils.

One thing I hear from people who are interested in essential oils is that they aren't sure where to start. The whole essential oil thing seems overwhelming. What to buy, how to use it, where to find information.

If that sounds like you -- you're interested in enhancing your health and wellness with natural solutions but you're confused and don't know where to start -- then today is you're lucky day!

I'm here to help :-)

If you just want quick info -- and don't want to read through all my background stuff -- feel free to go right to my doTERRA web site. You'll find a lot of good info and a quick way to sign up and get your oils. You can also visit my Essentially Happy Living Facebook page where I post a lot about essential oils and other natural solutions.

OK! Let's get down to business!

What Are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are volatile aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers and other parts of plants. Not only do they smell great (in most cases!) they also protect plants from disease and predators and they help with plant pollination.

And what they do for plants, they can help do for people. Essential oils have been used for ages to support health and wellness. Recently, people have started using them more and more. And I think that is awesome! Why not return to nature to support your health?

Check out this video to learn a little more:

How Do I Order?

You can purchase doTERRA essential oils and wellness products either at reduced prices with a wholesale account, or you can pay full price by purchasing at retail (visit my doTERRA web site to purchase retail).

I recommend opening a wholesale account because not only do you get to purchase whatever you'd like at 25% off the retail price, you also can get in on the many benefits that a doTERRA wholesale account offers.

Opening a wholesale account is super easy and no pressure whatsoever. Sure, if you fall in love with the products and you read the compensation plan and decide you want to sell, you totally can. But you will never be pressured to do so.

Here's the low-down on the wholesale membership:
  • $35 enrollment fee
  • 25% off the retail price of anything you purchase
  • Eligible to earn doTERRA's FREE product of the month
  • Option to earn 10-30% of your totaly order back in FREE product credits
  • No purchase minimums
  • No obligation to sell -- but you do have the opportunity to earn if you'd like

Ready to open a wholesale account? You can get started right now at my doTERRA web site.

What Should I Buy?

Here's the truth. The BEST option if you're getting started is to purchase one of doTERRA's enrollment kits.

The kits rock! They have the wholesale membership fee included in their price AND they have a discount worked in as well. Basically, the kits give you what you need to get started at whatever level works best for you.

I recommend getting started with the Home Essentials kit. It includes 10 of the key essential oils PLUS a Petal diffuser. If you get this kit, you will be on your way to enhanced health and wellness, no doubt!

There are plenty of other kit options and you can check them out on the doTERRA web site

What Do I Do Next?

If you're ready to get started and the information I've shared has been helpful, feel free to go ahead and visit my site and choose the option that works best for you.

If you still have questions, I'm here to help! You can email me at felicehalf at yahoo dot com or send me a message through Facebook. I'd be happy to chat on the phone and walk you through your options as well -- just send me a message or email and we can set that up.

And, let me just say this: When you enroll with me, you're going to have my support throughout your journey with essential oils. I can't stop myself from sharing essential oils with others and I'm full of enthusiasm to share with and support everyone who enrolls with me! I want nothing more than for you to have the same level of success and enhanced wellness that I've had, thanks to essential oils.

In addition to my personal support, you will have access to a private customer group on Facebook, where users share success stories, ask questions, and share other resources in a supportive environment.

They have made a huge impact on my life. What can they do for you?
