August at the Melbourne Trade Fair with My Secret Weapons

What an epic start to this month. I attended the Retail Trade Fair in Melbourne. Last year was my first time and I was so exhausted at the end of each day after walking on hard concrete through massive halls filled with exhibiting stands. It’s pure concentration, lots of focus and there is just so much to absorb in a very short time.
I wore my trusty Rossi Boots again which helped with the sturdy soles taking most of the pounding from the hard concrete and my calves and feet were much better from the ‘prep’ with the IceBlue oil and rub on the soles of my feet and the calves at the start of the day.
I had my trusty IceBlue rollerblend in my bag to top up during the day on the shoulders and neck from hauling my rollercase and bag with catalogues and notebook around all day.
By 11.30am I could see dazed expressions on quite a few people at the fair, it wasn’t easy on the exhibitors either – standing on their feet all day and repeating themselves to each and every visitor to their stand.
It was still a worthwhile trip, great experience albeit challenging but armed with my trusty ‘Secret Weapons’ I was in better condition than most at the end of every day.

Definitely my best friend through those days of walking and keeping me from seizing up.

It’s May already….. time does go quick when you are loving life!

So, it’s almost half way through 2017 and so much has happened.
If you recall, late last year I was in pain, unable to spend much time on the torch and to tell you the truth, I seriously thought I might have to give up lamp working.
When we were away on holiday in October/November last year, my left arm was in such pain and there were many moments when I didn’t even feel like I had the strength to lift my handbag much less push my suitcase along as we moved from one airport to another, one vacation location to another.
As chance would have it, a friend who is an osteopath recommended that I use a lacrosse ball and that with 10 days of swimming twice a day helped ease the pain a little bit but I still felt like I didn’t have full strength in my left arm and I was in pain most of the time.
Then in January, in my quest for essential oils that I needed to top up to make some soap as we were running out…. I came across these wonderful oils that I am now so in love with.
For a few weeks, I used the oil on my knees, neck and shoulder in the morning and even along the upper left arm. It gave me relief for the greater art of my day and so it became part of my daily routine.
Then in April, I started taking the supplements and I didn’t notice any difference but on the days that I forgot to apply the oil blend to my neck and shoulders, I didn’t seem to have that stiff aching anymore.
I had to go away for a week in early May and didn’t take the supplements with me… and thought i might put my neck out (I normally do when I don’t use my own pillow) but surprisingly, I was alright! I even managed to sleep quite well while I was away – that is normally a huge challenge when I am away from home.
I have now had several sessions on the torch from 2-4 hours and I have felt fine after that so it seems I am on a roll now.
On top of that…. I have had this really hard and awful bump on the top of my left foot which actually grew quite a bit last summer so much so that I was unable to wear my work boots because it felt like my circulation was cut off and my foot would go numb… but in the last couple of weeks I have noticed that the ganglian seems to have actually shrunk quite a lot. So maybe I can get away without having to have it surgically removed after all.
So….what has changed??
I am using these amazing oils in my daily routine and that’s the only change I have had.
Incredible, it’s true, they smell amazing and I feel good…. I am so grateful to have them in my life <3 ~~~ Lucky B ~~~ SimplyBea on Kangaroo Island

Back at the Markets!!!

Yesterday was such a gorgeous day in Kingscote, I am so glad I decided to get a stall at the Kingscote Farmer’s Market. It wasn’t an overly busy day in comparison to the other market days but for me, it was good as it gave me a chance to chat with folks and actually have a conversation with most people who dropped by. It’s not easy when you are on your own at the markets, trying to engage with visitors and not ignore anybody. So if you did see me at the market and I wasn’t able to catch up with you, my utmost apologies!!!

I was really lucky that my stall was in a location that allowed me to enjoy the occasional breeze that came through and I was even able to get power to run the doTERRA diffuser at my stall. That was really helpful, the Frankincense kept me alert and focused, sending a lovely scent around my stall. I was able to showcase the kit I encourage newcomers to get – the Home Essentials Kit which is a great way to be introduced to the doTERRA range.

The kit comes with a diffuser and 10 oils. Six 15ml bottles of single essential oils – Frankincense, Lavender, Peppermint, Lemon, Oregano, Tea Tree. Three doTERRA 15ml blends – On Guard, DigestZen, EasyAir and one 5ml bottle of Ice Blue (THE magic oil for strains/sprains). All this for AUD330 if you sign up for a wholesale account.

If you purchase each individual item on its own, the cost at wholesale is AUD427.75 and at retail it would be AUD570.47. So as you can see, it is definitely a great savings to sign up for a wholesale account.

You can read the details HERE on how to sign up.

If you sign up through me and get the Home Essentials Kit, you will get one of my handmade AromaVessels ($45 retail) as a gift from me for signing up before 28th Feb 2017.

There are a few to choose from and I will send you the available ones once you have signed up for your doTERRA account. Even if you just pay for your wholesale membership which gets you 25% discount of all your purchases – $35 for the first year and $25 (with a free bottle of Peppermint) each year after that – you will still get to pick your own AromaVessel. Remember, there is no obligation to buy every month but believe me, once you try these oils……you will be wanting to get them all and use the ones you get!

Check out all the great info on my Facebook Page , I will be posting more hints and tips on how to enjoy your essential oils.

Send me an email or a message me through my Facebook Page if you would like more details.

Have a great week!
