Winter Sunshine

We're past the Winter Solstice, so the days are finally getting longer rather than shorter. Hooray! 

But, yeah, there's still a lot of darkness to these winter days. So, here's a diffuser blend designed to add a little sunshine to your life.

Disclaimer: One of the most important things to know about essential oils is that all essential oils are NOT created equally. Many of them are actually synthetic, with no therapeutic value for your health and wellness. When buying essential oils make sure they are certified pure therapeutic grade.

Self Discovery with Essential Oils

"Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle."
-- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

For real. Who are you? Who am I, for that matter?

Who are we?!?!?

Good question. But one worth seeking the answer. And the answer can only be found through a journey to self discovery. You are really the only one who can find out who you are. 

But, yikes. The journey of self-discovery can be a scary one. You learn things about yourself that you might not like -- things that are hard to change but that, when released, can lead to a more fulfilling life. 

It is worth it, I'm sure. And there are plenty of tools that can help as you seek to find your true self. One of those tools is essential oils. Several oils have wonderfully supportive emotional properties and if you'd like to support yourself as you release your limiting beliefs and move toward self-acceptance and compassion, well, I have some oils for you!

Let's start with these:

Bergamot: The oil of self acceptance.

Wild Orange: The oil of abundance.

Geranium: The oil of love and trust.

White Fir: The oil of generational healing.

You can use the oils individually, or blend them together in a roller bottle to wear as you travel on your journey toward self discovery. You may find that some days you apply it once, some days more often. Your body will tell you what you need -- if you listen!

*** Please note that the citrus oils in this blend can cause photo-sensitivity so avoid sunlight after using this blend on your skin. Or, apply the blend on the bottom of your feet or other skin that will not be exposed to sunlight.***

Teaching Team Profile: Rebecca Boswell

I invite you to learn more about the wonderful people who comprise the Essentially Happy Living teaching team. These individuals each bring a unique perspective to their essential oils business -- everyone has their own teaching style and their own strengths. The really cool part is that the members of our teaching team are so supportive of one another and always lifting each other up. What an honor it is to know and work with this team!

To start us off, I'm happy to introduce Rebecca Boswell. She was the first person I enrolled (!!!) and I am forever grateful that she is part of my life. She has a diverse background in holistic wellness (you can learn more about her at her web site: and she shares her knowledge freely.

Name: Rebecca Boswell
Where you live: Greenville, SC
Family: Daughter Maile (8yo), son Griffin (5yo), bunny Cobie, and hubby Jed.
Favorite book: Too many to list. Some favorites include, The Alchemist, The Four Agreements, and most anything that lifts my spirit and brings me closer to center.
How you got into essential oils: I have been exposed to essential oils my whole life through my aunt in Austria (a western-trained pharmacist, who incorporated natural solutions into her work, including homeopathy, herbal treatments, and essential oils). When I was introduced to my favorite therapeutic-grade oils in June of 2014, I was thrilled with the quality, standards of practice, and co-impact sourcing model. In November of 2014 I chose to offer my first class, and by January of 2015 I was committed to building a business, as part of my existing holistic wellness practice. I am excited to get my oils each month and love sharing them with others. One of my favorite things is getting emails, calls, and texts out of the blue from Wellness Advocates I have enrolled, telling me about how much they love their oils, a new discovery, something that performed miracles in their household, and sometimes to just say 'thank you' for introducing them to a whole new approach to health in their homes. I have an amazing team and am so grateful to the balance my oils offer me emotionally, physically, and financially.
Favorite oil/diffuser blend: This changes, depending on my mood, situation, energy level, and environment. I do like Tangerine and Spearmint combined when I'm working (or Peppermint and Wild Orange), Uplifting Blend when I need a little extra sunshine, Cleansing Blend if there is any kind of lingering odor, Protective Blend if I want to boost my immunity, and a mix of Grounding Blend and Calming Blend to help sleep or relax.

Welcome to Essentially Happy Living!

Are you interested in natural wellness solutions? Would you like to find safer, cheaper, more effective health and wellness care for you and your family?

Well, so would I!

I have begun using essential oils to support my healthy lifestyle and I love them! I use them on my skin, diffuse the oils in my home to clean the air, and even eat and drink them. I'm hooked :-)

Now -- let me back up a little to share with you how I first was introduced to the healing properties of essential oils.

Back in August 2011, I was diagnosed with a tick-borne illness. I was put on a 30 day course of doxycycline and really struggled. I developed severe nerve pain all along my left side -- from my toes to my head. I had debilitating fatigue and weird, migratory joint and spinal pain. It was awful. After a lot of back and forth with my doctors, and no relief, I went to see someone who specialized in integrative medicine.


She identified that -- among other auto-immune issues -- I had several active viruses, probably activated by the tick-borne illness.

She prescribed a unique, complex treatment that, over several months, involved herbal, mushroom, and other supplements; enzymes; probiotics; and essential oils. I was also instructed to start an anti-inflammatory diet.

It did not happen over night, but I got better.

Am I 100%? Not quite. But my treatment with the natural solutions from the integrative medicine specialist has made the difference in my life -- allowing me to move away from pain and back to vitality.

Recently, a good friend introduced me to her favorite essential oils and I was newly hooked! I've been using the oils and other products and I feel great!

I would love for you to join me in this journey!

How to Purchase Essential Oils

You can purchase my favorite essential oil products three ways:

Retail: If you are interested in purchasing only a few single oils, you can do so through my retail site (email me for a link! felicehalf at yahoo dot com). This option does not include any benefits for you, however.

Wholesale: My favorite essential oils offers a wholesale membership (similar to those at BJs or Costco) for just $35. With that, you get 25% off the retail price. It is super easy to sign up and you can either do so with a full enrollment kit -- or just purchase the membership and then purchase your oils at wholesale. It's a great deal and it in no way obligates you to sell the oils. But if you want to, you certainly can!

Below Wholesale: Wait . . . what? Below wholesale?!? Yup, you read that right. To purchase your oils at below wholesale prices, all you have to do is sign up for a wholesale account and then join the Loyalty Rewards Program. It is kinda like a frequent flyer program where you earn points based on your purchase. Rack up some points and start getting your oils for below wholesale!

The best thing about the Loyalty Rewards Program is that although you have the opportunity to receive up to 30% back in product credits (in addition to your 25% wholesale discount), you are NOT locked in.You can order as much or as little as you'd like each month. But, you can purchase products for a huge discount -- and you can be eligible to get the free product of the month.

More About Essential Oils

Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the roots, leaves, flowers, fruit, and bark of plants. They are beautifully and powerfully fragrant, highly concentrated and, believe me, just a little goes a long way.

Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, but they also provide plants with protection against predators and disease and play a role in plant pollination.

The best part? Each essential oil has many -- sometimes hundreds -- of uses. Some oils help to fight infections and inflammation, some soothe emotional issues, some help repair skin and help the body heal itself. It goes on and on. The bottom line: Essential oils can provide you and your family with safer, cheaper and more effective health and wellness care.
