Essential Oil Recipes and a GIVEAWAY

Welcome friends! Life has been extremely busy these days. I am really enjoying our new living space (yay for running water!) and one of these days soon I will catch you all up on just where exactly we are living now. I keep dropping hints of what our new life is like on the eco-village through comments on LittleOwlCrunchyMomma Facebook page, or pictures on Instagram, but I know it's not the same as reading a full post. I PROMISE I will explain it all soon...

But for today I want to introduce you to a friend I met through blogging. I've mentioned before how much I love the fact that blogging has helped me connect with other like-minded mommas and friends all across the world. And it's so true! For however many things we can say against the internet and technology, one thing we have to step back and appreciate, is that it CONNECTS us in ways never before possible. 

I met Danielle through a post I shared about essential oils. She commented that she loves them and sells them as well. The brand of essential oils that Danielle sells is awesome. Please stop on by her website and say hello. 

And now, without further ado... meet Danielle... 

Hello! my name is Danielle and I am busy wife and stay at home mother to a sweet little boy. I was a pediatric nurse before my son was born and I love learning and the crunchier things in life.  I wasn't always so conscious of my environment and the things I put in my body. I like to look at it as a journey and for my husband and I it began when we decided to start a family. We wanted our lives, bodies and home to be free of toxins and we knew we had to make big changes. This proactive approach brought us to doTERRA and the impact has been tremendous. Now we enjoy sharing doTERRA essential oils and empowering others in experiencing the benefits essential oils offer. My goal is to for there to be essential oils in every household. To help you get started using natural solutions I am giving away a doTERRA Introduction to Essential Oils Kit with Audio CD to one lucky reader of LittleOwlCrunchyMomma

Best of luck! If you don't win please feel free to come on over to my blog ( and learn more about essential oils. There are also many ways to make sure you have the essential oils on hand for whatever life throws at you. It is my intention to not only empower you in using essential oils but also help you to get natural solutions in your household. You can always buy essential oils at retail on my site at Though I highly recommend opening a wholesale account so you can get doTERRA at the deepest discount and the same pricing that I get. With a wellness advocate (IPC) account you will get 25% off all products. doTERRA will also reward you for being a loyal customer by helping you to earn between 10-30% back with each purchase along with a free product of the month. This account is similar to a CostCo account and you pay a one time $35 fee to shop at wholesale. You can also choose to open your wholesale account with an enrollment kit which waives the $35 and includes our most popular oils. If you open a wholesale account you will also receive access to amazing training videos to help you become a healer in your household. I also offer a free wellness consult and class to anyone who I share oils with. I look forward in helping you on your journey with essential oils.
