Self Care Tips

Hey everyone! I am so excited to get to share with you all one of my greatest passions- improving your life with essential oils!  This is especially true during a pandemic when you may have new emotions to deal with, new routines, or even new worries.  As a mom of 5, I love getting to travel the country and help women (and men, too) learn all about essential oils!

When I started diving in and researching the safety of essential oils, especially the safety during pregnancy, I was pleasantly surprised! Not only are oils safe, they can actually be your main go-to for almost every daily issue that may arise.

One of the research studies that I stumbled across was an amazing study where they were actually researching how much of what the mom was exposed to during pregnancy was actually crossing over and going into the umbilical cord blood of the baby. They found that there were over 200 toxic chemicals that were actually getting into baby’s cord blood. And these chemicals aren’t minor things. They were endocrine disruptors, they were neurotoxins, they were cancer- causing chemicals.

The more research I did, I found that the harmful chemicals were things that we’re using every single day—the cleaners we’re using in our home, the products that we use to take care of ourselves & many other items you wouldn’t necessarily think about. As we apply products to our skin and as we use them in our environment, they’re actually being absorbed by our body and being passed right in to our bloodstream. So, as a mom of 5, I have become very passionate about teaching other women how to replace the products that we’re using every single day with something much safer.

Essential oils can be useful for creating a healthy body, supporting the immune system, soothing feelings of discomfort, and more. Because of these powerful benefits, essential oils are useful and effective during every phase of life. By following proper safety guidelines & having a discussion with your healthcare provider, you can feel confident in using essential oils for improving your health.

One thing that we need to address right off the bat is that not all oils are created equally.  You’ll find a lot of different things as you scour the internet about recommendations of what to use, what not to use, and even some fear-based articles.  And, a lot of the fear comes when you’re looking at inferior oils. A predominant amount of oils on the market today are actually synthetic or they’re adulterated (FAKE!). You will find a lot of information on the internet stating that during pregnancy you should avoid essential oils.  That is because many of these oils are inferior.  However, doTERRA CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® oil are different.  In fact, based on the third-party studies done on these oils, you will find nothing synthetic or harmful has been added to these oil bottles.  They are so safe that most of doTERRA bottles will come with a “supplement facts” section which actually makes them safe enough to ingest!

Here are some of my top oil recommendations to take care of your body RIGHT now:

Pain: Deep Blue Rub – Rub on any achy joints and muscles

Sleep & Calming: Serenity – Place a few drops in the diffuser or on the bottoms of feet

Anxiety: Adaptiv – Apply a few drops to your wrists or add to the diffuser

Illness prevention: OnGuard – Drink a few drops, place on bottoms of feet, or diffuse

Daily well being: Lemon – Add a few drops to your water daily to remove toxins (use glass or metal cups)

Egg Donor Testimony

I am about to complete my third cycle donating eggs to families who need them to have children! It’s been such a rewarding journey. I’m not posting this to toot my own horn, I think it’s important to raise awareness and let others know how it’s positively affected my life!

The first family that I donated to had their baby a few months ago and shared with me how thankful they were for my contribution. They were overwhelmed with gratitude and, until that moment, I really hadn’t understood how much my choice had changed their lives. I was primarily interested in the financial incentive.

Seeing their baby was an amazing feeling, I don’t even know how to describe it. I felt so happy knowing that I had positively contributed to their lives and their dreams of having family. The fact that we have the ability to give the opportunity of having children to those who otherwise couldn’t is absolutely incredible.

Fun Facts on Egg Donation

An egg donor is an accountable, healthy, non-smoking woman between the ages of 21 and 28, of any ethnic and religious background, who is willing to donate her eggs to help someone else build their family.

This special lady donates a few of her eggs to a recipient who highly wishes to have a child but is incapable of generating eggs of her own. Or in some cases, the donation is made to a male(s) choosing to build a family without a female partner. An egg donor donates one of the most wonderful presents possible—the gift of possibly having a family.

Why do other women need donated eggs?

Women who cannot produce or use their own eggs need contributed eggs. Below are some of the reasons why:

  • Premature menopause
  • If the mother is carrier of a genetic disease which she does not want to pass to her offspring
  • Hormonal stimulation does not generate a positive ovarian response
  • Hysterectomy or partial hysterectomy
  • Previous sterility problems as a result of chemotherapy

Does egg donation affect my fertility or chance of having children in the future?

Are you worried about having your own kids one day? There are no long-term studies that link donating to infertility. Each woman is created with many eggs in her ovaries. Every month, a woman’s body releases a specific number of eggs. The egg donation procedure is only using the number of eggs the body would normally generate in a month.  The stimulation treatment given during the egg donation process is assisting to mature the donor’s eggs to hopefully be of high quality. Egg donations do not appear to have any long-term effects on sterility. The egg donor will be working with extremely qualified physicians who will take every step to ensure her health and safety. As you go through the donor process you learn about your own fertility & genetics.

Can someone donate after having a tubal ligation (tubes tied)?

Yes, the egg is removed from the donor’s ovaries so this is not an issue.

How many times can I donate with Egg Donor Solutions?

Our standards are set by ASRM and their guidelines. Therefore, six egg donation cycles is the most you can donate in your life-time.

Can the recipient couple or woman ever discover who I am?

Egg Donor Solutions usually facilitates unidentified egg donation matches. In these cases, our office will only discuss with the intended parents the information on your profile and photos. We don’t provide your name or contact details. However, there are now more recipients who are enthusiastic about open or semi-open cycles.  This is a personal choice you can make if you want to be in touch with the intended parents.

How many eggs does the common egg donor produce?

Most egg donors produce an average of 13-24 eggs. This number depends on the donor and how her body responds to the medications. As few as 5, or as many as 35 or more, eggs can be produced in each cycle.
