Today I hosted the team for an Everyday Oils discussion and Make & Take workshop. We had so much fun creating, that we’re going to have to schedule a Part 2, soon! Check out the set-up:
Since we are all Premium Starter Kit owners, we began our discussion with the Everyday Oils Collection. As we moved in to sharing how we currently use the oils in our life, I shared the benefits of always having the Essential Oil Pocket Reference (EOPR) handy. Members of the Dose of Joy team all receive their choice of the EOPR or Essential Oil Guide App, as part of their team education and oil training.
Next we discussed oils that pertain directly to our individual needs, how to cross reference our research, access upline team resources, and create products to incorporate those oils and begin to eliminate many of the costly, chemical free products in our homes. Armed with information, links, and resources on how to begin examining our individual health and wellness – we moved on to creating products.
Around the room I had Make & Take stations set up, to pull ingredients from, discuss, and as our schedule allowed, we would create products with items in the picture.
A variety of recipes were provided, but where possible, I shared the base recipe and how to modify it for their personal needs. A great example was our detox salt baths. After learning more about the oils, I asked each member to select a blend that best suit their need, and we created a Detox Salt Bath Take Away. I explained the benefits of this method of bathing, and shared simple ways to modify that recipe. Today we created a Himalayan Detox blend, with their essential oils.
I also wanted to highlight the simplicity of making big changes. With just a few products, you can create cost effective solutions, and change a variety of products out in your home all at once. Hand sanitizers, hand soap, dish soap, body wash, various sugar scrubs are all made with the ingredients above, combined with our choice of essential oils.
This was my favorite station of the day, because it provided a fun, energizing drink and break for us all. Process one orange for every ounce of NingXia Red in the vitamix, and allow it to chill in the fridge. Add 10-12 ice cubes, put back on the Vitamix and run until smooth.
I gave each guest their own NingXia Nitro, and gave them the option of adding it direct, or doing a quick shot. Consensus: mixing it in, made it FABULOUS!!! I also took this opportunity to share how simple it was to add in your daily oils at this point.
As we continued, we discussed the versatility of many ingredients we use. While reviewing the recipes, I demonstrated how you can easily create up to three bases at the same time, with similar ingredients in different measurements. The end products can result in a salve, balm or bar consistency. Adding essential oils before the base is cooled, will provide the wellness support or target the needs you are looking to support. (Chest rub, muscle rub, intense moisturizing relief salve, lotion bars, and lip balms).
Everyone left with support materials, recipes, and a couple gift bags full of make & take goodies. We are already talking about scheduling a follow-up. I can’t wait!
And if this wasn’t enough, after everyone left, I went to return calls and emails and was able to close out my day by adding another team member. I can’t wait to share these gifts with her, and introduce her to the team!
Together we grow in knowledge, support and wellness.
Dose of Joy.
