This page contains suggestions of some of my favorite sites, products, stores, books, etc. As a heads up, some of these links contain affiliate links. What does that mean to you? You don’t pay any more for the items purchased on these sites than you would without the link, but at some of these sites, I receive a small commission for referring you to the vendor. I consider that a win/win, right? You get some great stuff and I get a little tiny bit of extra cash to pour back into my business and keep the lights on at my house! :)

Supplies, Reference Materials and Accessories that I use with my Essential Oils:

Sew Grown - www.sewgrown.com - This company employees a team of Americans with Disabilities to make beautiful purses, bags, essential oils travel cases, toys and jewelry.

They also have a variety of fun greeting cards and gift items. Use this link to order from their website and receive a 15% discount on your first order with them!
Glasstic Shatterproof Glass Water Bottle - http://bit.ly/2RVtZIf - This is one of my favorite water bottles to use with my essential oils. I LOVE to add a couple of drops of a citrus oil or two to my water as I sip on it throughout the day. To safely do that (I ONLY suggest this for dōTERRA oils because I know that they are safe to ingest internally!), we need to use a glass or stainless steel water bottle. This is one of my favorites because they offer free replacements EVEN IF YOU DROP it just right and it does break. I’ve dropped mine dozens of times with no trouble, but I also dropped it once and had it shatter. The glass part of the bottle is encase in a plastic outer layer that makes it VERY difficult to break. All the safety features of a plastic container, but because it’s glass, I can use it with my oils!
iTOVi Mobile Scanner
http://bit.ly/2rqVNbU - This portable scanner allows you and your clients to receive personalized reports. How? The iTOVi scanner uses innovative and institutionally recognized technology to measure the changes in the electrical conductivity of the skin to stimuli. The scanner identifies these changes and ranks products in order by the strongest responses.

Personal Care and Home Supplies that I use and would recommend:
Grove Collaborative - www.grove.co - Most of the personal care and home cleaning products that I use are dōTERRA products, but they don’t carry everything, YET! Until they do and because I’m not a big DIYer, I am continually on the hunt for the cleanest products that are toxin free, or as close to it as possible. As a result, I order some products from Grove because they are committed to providing products that are as clean as possible. They work a little like Amazon Prime and often send me freebies with more order, and who doesn’t like free?
Mineralogie - www.mineralogiemakeup.com - I was on the hunt for a LONG time for a makeup line that offered good coverage without the toxins and ingredients that were of concern when it comes to what I put on my largest organ, my skin! This makeup line was recommended to me by someone that I really admire who had the opportunity to tour their headquarters, talk to them personally and uses and loves their products herself. Their coverage is great and for those of you with dōTERRA, they even offer discounts for us (or have in the past at least!).
