Topics Discussed in This Episode:

  • The essential oils I travel with:
  • On Guard
  • ZenGest
  • ClaryCalm
  • PastTense
  • Deep Blue
  • Lavender
  • Frankincense
  • The Mirena IUD
  • Spring water vs purified water
  • Top supplements that actually work:
  • Omega-3s
  • Probiotics
  • Vitamin D
  • Magnesium
  • Organifi Green Juice
  • ENERGYbits


Key Takeaways:

  • doTERRA’s On Guard essential oil blend is great for immune support, while ZenGest supports digestion. And if you’re about to get your period, ClaryCalm would be great for that time of the month. PastTense
  • PastTense Relaxation Blend Oil is great for tension. It’s calming and grounding to the body. On the other hand, Deep Blue is the blend for muscle aches and pains.
  • Lavender essential oil is great for stings and insect bites.
  • Frankincense is the king of oils. It is anti-ageing, detoxifying, and a very spiritual oil.
  • When you come off of the Mirena IUD, your body is going to need some time to recalibrate, and it could impact how you’re going through perimenopause and menopause.
  • The longer you stay on IUD, the longer you are exposing yourself to synthetic hormones. And when you get off of it, it could be challenging to support your body and find your hormonal balance. 
  • Spring water has far fewer man-made additives because it’s coming from a pure source. It’s also going to be very high in natural minerals.


Action Steps:

  • If you’re at a stage in your life where you don’t want children, just be conscious of tracking your cycle and using a barrier method instead of taking synthetic hormones.
  • When it comes to what supplements to take, look at things symptomatically. Look at what’s going on and factor in your age, your lifestyle, stress, sleep, etc. Then add on the different supplements that’s going to make sense for you.


Samantha said:

“I don’t typically recommend multivitamins only because the amount of minerals and vitamins to fit into one capsule is so minute. You just can’t get enough in there, and you’d have to take quite a bit.”


“We can all benefit from these products, but that doesn’t solve, specifically, the symptoms and the issues that we may be experiencing.”
