OnGuard Toothpaste – flouride free and more benefits

On Guard Toothpaste - flouride free and helps keep a mouth healthy!I am very excited over the feedback I’ve been getting from people using the doTERRA OnGuard Whitening Toothpaste. The first huge advantage is that it is fluoride free. Fluoride ingestion is a scary thing, especially in our little ones under age 6. In 1997 the toothpaste companies were required to start including a warning label and phone number to call in case of ingestion on their tubes. Have you ever called that number? Back in October I heard a story of someone who did (out of curiosity) and they were immediately connected to poison control (I mean *immediate* … there wasn’t even time for a pleasant “please hold while I connect you …”). PC told him to get his son to the hospital asap, at which point he had to ‘fess up and admit his son didn’t really ingest the product, he was only curious.

Still not sure about the health risks involved with fluoride? Check out this post from the Flouride Action Network at FlourideAlert.org: Toothpastes. Interesting tidbits. I hadn’t realized how trusting and ignorant I have been!

So let’s talk less scary stuff. OnGuard Toothpaste. I am an Independent Product Consultant for doTERRA and I continue to be amazed by these wonderful products. I’ve had some good feedback from my friends and clients and hope you enjoy reading these testimonials as much as I do!

A friend of mine was experiencing extreme sensitivity in her mouth (I can’t remember if it was gum or tooth pain off the top of my head). In less than a week after using the OnGuard Toothpaste from doTERRA, her sensitivity was gone. I was intrigued!

Yesterday I heard from another friend. She, her mom and I drove to the annual Convention together in Salt Lake City. After hearing the story about regular toothpaste and the poison control number listed on the tube, her mom (Candy) and I immediately purchased our own OnGuard Toothpastes and threw out our traditional pastes when we arrived home. That was 6 weeks ago. Yesterday morning Candy went to her scheduled appointment for her oral surgery and asked her doctor to double check her numbers. He did and found that she was no longer in need of the surgery. Wonderful news! Candy was also adding a drop of Melaleuca and Clove at her brushings for an extra boost (although there is already Clove in the OnGuard blend).

If you had a chance to attend my On Guard webinar earlier this week, you heard how good the oil is at addressing oral abscesses and gum issues. These testimonials are wonderful to hear!

(NOTE: do not use the OnGuard Toothpaste on your dogs. It contains xylitol which, while safe for us, is toxic to our canine friends.)

OnGuard Toothpaste retails for $11.33. If you have a wholesale membership (only $35 for a full year) then the price drops to $8.50. A 4 oz tube will last quite a while, depending on how many people are using it. You only need a pea-sized amount at each brushing to be effective! To purchase retail, just visit my store at http://MyDoterra.com/SanteeOils. If you would like to take advantage of the wholesale membership (no ordering requirements, it is comparable to how a Costco membership works), then just click JOIN in the upper right corner of that landing page. You’ll be given two choices – click the top button for the $35 membership which will give you an average of 25% off all purchases for the year.

Have you been using the OnGuard Toothpaste? I’d love to hear your testimonials in the comments section!

April’s Education Quest: DigestZen Essential Oil Blend from doTERRA

DigestZen Essential Oil Blend

DigestZen Essential Oil Blend

(NOTE: I’m not sure why this never posted last April, I found it while cleaning up my categories and tags. This is the oil that catapulted me from “doTERRA Oil User” to “doTERRA Business Builder” and it seemed like a good post to publish! Read on …)

I decided to learn about doTERRA DigetZen Essential Oil Blend in April.   I’ve been sharing facts about it with my FaceBook audience throughout the month and now it is time to bring all of those posts together for my Blog summery post.  I started the month off with this tidbit:  why I chose DigestZen.  I’ve suffered with severe acid reflux for a couple of decades now and this seemed like a good place to do some experimenting with EOs and common health concerns.  My research at this time pointed to DigestZen as the perfect EO blend to help eradicate my condition.  I take one drop in 4 oz. of water once a day and am interested to see at the end of the month as to how it has worked for me.  Read through to the end of this blog post for my monthly summery on my self-experiment  (oils can be purchased at mydoterra.com/santeeoils)

“Dr. Hill’s experience with patients and his research has concluded that most gastrointestinal disorders are secondary to inflammation from bacteria, viruses, parasites and other microbes and a lack of good nutrition.” DigestZen has been found to be antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-micorbial, anti-nausea, anti-parasitic, anti-spasmodic, soothing for hangover symptoms (alcohol, sugar, carbohydrate or meat protein).  It soothes and subdues acid reflux, stimulates repair of damaged tissues of the digestive system, been credited with reducing polyps in the intestinal tract.
DIGESTZEN USES:
Use DigestZen on the wrists for indigestion relief.
Use DigestZen around the core of the stomach and on the wrists for nausea, severe indigestion, vomiting, diarrhea, cramping, food poisoning, acid reflux, esophageal burning, gas, bloating, colic (for a tiny baby use on the bottom of feet).
DIGESTZEN TESTIMONIALS:
 – I attended an oil presentation and met some great people.  One of the shares from Sandra, the presentor, caught my attention.  She was out to eat with some friends for an evening of fun and socializing.  However, something from the dinner caused everyone to have upset stomachs.  Sandra took her DigestZen at the first sign of tummy difficulties and made it through the night with quick relief and no further symptoms.  Over the next couple of days as she checked in with her friends, she found out that everyone else had full-blown food poisoning symptoms.  DigestZen to the rescue!

UPDATE: I LOVE THIS OIL! The relief was practically immediate and I can’t remember the last time I was pain free from my *constant* acid reflux. I am sold!

Recipe: Cinnamon Peanut Butter Energy Balls

Cinnamon Peanut Butter Energy Balls

Cinnamon Peanut Butter Energy Balls

I am having such a blast finding great recipes and adapting them into lower calorie treats that incorporate doTERRA CPTG Essential Oils! This one does double duty: it is a treat for the two-leggers (humans) that can be shared with the four-leggers (dogs) in our lives – just be sure you are using the recipe without the chocolate chips if you share. I use these for a quick pick-me-up for myself and also hide my dogs’ medicine in it and they don’t even notice! Note: My four-legged “kids” are 20# Cocker Spaniels … so for them I split a mini-ball in half to keep their calorie count down as well. But for ME – the full, whole Energy Ball, definitely!

Energy Balls

1 cup rolled oats

½ cup organic peanut butter (no sugars added)

1/3 cup organic honey

1 cup coconut flakes, unsweetened (if you don’t like the chunks of coconut  flakes, you can grind them to powder in a coffee grinder)

½ cup ground flaxseed

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 drops doTERRA Cinnamon Bark CPTG Essential Oil

  • Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  • Roll into teaspoon sized balls.
  • Eat them up!

The recipe above makes 34 mini-balls at only 72 calories each!

(Optional:  add a few mini chocolate chips to each ball for a touch  of extra sweetness!)

 *** *** *** *** ***

The Benefits of Energy Balls:  Slow burning energy.  Natural sugars.  Great taste!

Oatmeal: 

Helps stop food cravings

Contains plant lignans which protect against heart disease and cancer

Enhances immune response to disease

Peanut Butter:

Boosts energyboth protein and healthy monosaturated fats will give you an energy pick-me-up

Peanut butter is a great source of iron, which helps to maintain good circulation

The antioxidants and fiber in peanut butter help to reduce the risk of cancer

Honey:

Honey is known for reducing muscle fatigue in athletes

Great immune system builder and possesses carcinogen-preventing and anti-tumor properties

Nature’s energy booster – the glucose in honey is absorbed by the body quickly and gives an immediate energy boost, while the fructose is absorbed more slowly providing sustained energy. It is known that honey has also been found to keep levels of blood sugar fairly constant compared to other types of sugar

Coconut Flakes:

Two components, lauric acid and monolaurin, appear to have antibacterial and antiviral properties

Flaxseed:

Three heathly components:  Omega-3 essential fatty acids, Lignans, and Fiber

Flaxseed may have a protective effect against breast cancer, prostate cancer, and colon cancer

New research also suggests significant blood pressure-lowering effects of flaxseed

Vanilla:

Studies have shown that the scent of vanilla extract may assist people to lose weight

Studies have shown that vanilla extract has a positive benefit on dealing with stress and anxiety

doTERRA Cinnamon Essential Oil:

Cinnamon detoxifies the digestive system and stimulates brain function

Clinical studies have linked cinnamon consumption to lowered blood sugar

Cinnamon contains anti-inflammatory compounds that can help relieve arthritis pain

Recipe: Citrus Bliss Cheesecake Mousse

Citrus Bliss Cheesecake Mousse

Citrus Bliss Cheesecake Mousse

This recipe was a hit at last month’s Spa 33 Open House.  I think Nell is stalking me for the recipe tho, so I had to make this my next post …

Citrus Bliss Cheesecake Mousse

3.4 oz vanilla instant pudding mix

4 drops of doTERRA Citrus Bliss essential oil

1 packet Knox gelatin

1.5 cups 1% Milk

8 oz cream fat-free cream cheese

8 oz fat-free ricotta cheese

½  tablespoon honey

Dream Whip (1 envelope)

  •  In a microwave-safe bowl, heat up ½ cup of milk in microwave (or you can use stove-top)
  • Add 1 packet of Knox gelatin and stir until completely dissolved
  • Let mixture cool
  • Add pudding mix, ½ cup of cold milk and Citrus Bliss Essential Oil.  Whisk for 2 minutes  (this is the bowl I refer to from now on as the “mousse mixture”)
  • In a separate bowl combine cream cheese, ricotta cheese and honey.  Blend until smooth
  • Add to mousse mixture, blend until smooth
  • In a separate bowl, prepare Dream Whip according to box directions, using remaining ½ cup of milk (do not add vanilla)
  • Add to mousse mixture, blend until smooth
  • In mini-serving cups (I used 2 oz sample cups, this recipe makes approx 24 servings) place 2 tablespoons of mousse mixture.  Top with your choice of fresh fruit or mini-chocolate chips.   Also works great in full-size dessert dishes for a more formal serving size
  • Refrigerate for at least 3 – 4 hours
  • Eat and enjoy!

ALTERNATE YUMMY-NESS:  add a Graham Cracker crust and topping:

½ cup graham cracker crumbs

2 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons melted butter

Recipe: Nutella Brownie Bites with doTERRA Wild Orange Oil Cream Cheese Frosting

Nutella Brownie Bites - before being frosted

Nutella Brownie Bites – before being frosted

One of my blog readers, Anne (Uni Homemaker), has a wonderful blog of her own that I enjoy reading.  You might too! Yesterday was our monthly Open House at Spa 33 in El Cajon, CA and I wanted to make a snack for my table that  would feature one of the doTERRA Essential Oils.  Of course, true to form, this idea hit me a mere 3 hours before I had to be there to set up my table, so I had to find something that had a quick preparation!  When I cook with my oils I like to preserve the healing properties, so I don’t take them to their “smoke point”.  This Brownie Bite recipe at Anne’s site sounded so very delicious and I thought that using a flavored frosting would be the perfect compliment to it.  Others must have thought so too, because they disappeared quickly off my table!

Ingredients:  This recipe made 30 mini-brownie bites for me.

Brownie Bites:

  • 1 cup of Nutella
  • 2 eggs
  • 10 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips (since I made mini-muffins, I used the mini-chips)

Frosting:

  •         1 12 oz containter Betty Crocker Cream Cheese Frosting (yep, I cheated – I was out of time!  You can make yours from scratch, if you prefer)
  •         3 drops doTERRA Wild Orange Essential Oil

Preparation:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking cups in the muffin pan.
  • Using a stand or electric mixer (or mix by hand) mix together Nutella, eggs, flour and salt until combined.
  • Spoon batter into the lined baking cups (about 1/2 full as they will expand while cooking). Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and bake for 12 minutes (same cook time – regular size or mini size). Let the brownie cups cool for 5-7 minutes in the muffin pan before transferring them to the cooling rack.
  • Combine Cream Cheese Frosting and Wild Orange Essential Oil.  Mix well.
  • Use a frosting bag or a zip-lock baggie with a corner snipped out.  Fill bag with Frosting.  Squeeze frosting onto each brownie bite.

Eat and Enjoy! I’d love to hear of your experiences with this recipe!
