January 2019

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
 
Hello and Welcome to 2019!
 
Today is the 2nd of January and the weather is grey and miserable here in Long Ditton. It isn’t cold, as such, but it is drizzly and it is sufficiently gloomy for Stanley to pass on the opportunity to take a leisurely stroll in the garden. This is no hardship for Honey, my other cat. The great outdoors doesn’t exist for her between September and April. 


I can’t help thinking that even if the weather today was bright and glorious, I would still be feeling a bit diflas (translated from Welsh, diflas means "dull", but diflas expresses so much more!) Somewhat inevitably, for the last ten days or so I have been on a one-woman mission to consume all kinds of food and drink that rarely makes an appearance in my fridge or on my shopping list. Mini Yorkshire Puddings with Beef and Horseradish, anyone? Breaded King Prawns with a Sweet Chilli Dip?

The excesses of December can often hit our purse as well as our waistline meaning that January can be a long and thrifty month! If you are already have a dōTERRA account with Dotty's Oils and purchase products monthly on the Loyalty Rewards Programme (LRP), you are in luck!

You are in luck because you can redeem the points you have accrued throughout 2018 on products that you want and need. 
The last time I decided to redeem my points, I took this photo...
In the photo, you will see: 
 
Refreshing Body Wash

Melaleuca and Peppermint Facial Cleanser

Bergamot, Juniper Berry and Melissa Brightening Gel

Healthy Hold Hair Glaze

Pore Reducing Toner

On Guard Softgels

Exfoliating Body Scrub 

Without an account, these products would have cost me: 
 
Retail Price £188.67 
 
With an account, these products would have cost me: 

Wholesale Price £141.50 
 
But, because I purchase products monthly on LRP, I had accrued enough points to purchase all of these products with those I had sitting in my account.  
 
Points Redeemed 142.90
 
It goes without saying that it makes me very happy to receive this sort of parcel! Does anything stand out about the purchases I made with my points? Take a close look at the photo. Have you guessed it? Well, there aren't any essential oils in the photograph! And even though Dotty's Oils is very much about using essentials oils in different ways to improve health and wellbeing, dōTERRA has a myriad of other products available (from skincare to supplements). All products contain essentials oils! You can browse the range of products available in this brochure:

So, if you are feeling a little diflas yourself this month, why not have a look at your account and cheer yourself up with a fritter of your points?!

The Loyalty Rewards Programme Explained

The easiest and most cost-effective way to purchase dōTERRA products is to enrol with your own account. It costs £24 do so. Once you have your own account, everything you purchase attracts wholesale pricing which is 25% less than retail pricing. Each dōTERRA product has both a monetary and a points value - PV.

Once you have your own account, you can benefit from further savings by purchasing monthly on the Loyalty Rewards Programme. The commitment you make is to purchase a minimum of one item every month; an item or items you choose and that you want. The order you place could cost as little as £6.50 or run into hundreds of pounds. You can amend or cancel your monthly order at any time. 

The points value (PV) of your order will dictate what percentage of Loyalty Reward Credits you receive. If your order is under 50 PV, you will receive 10% back in Loyalty Reward Credits. However, if your order is 50 PV or more every month, the percentage of Loyalty Reward Credits you earn will increase to 30% by month 13 (meaning that 
you could save up to 55% overall). Here is an illustration: 
Placing a monthly order, therefore, will enable you to get free products because you will be earning Loyalty Reward Credits on every purchase you make. 
 
Another way of looking at it is that the LRP works in the same way as having a Boots Card or Tesco Clubcard but with far greater benefits! 

In addition, if you place your order before the 15th of the month, and it is 125 PV or more, you will earn the free Product of the Month. This month, it is a free 15ml bottle of Grapefruit (see Promotions below).

Still a little in the dark? This short video should assist:

Tried and Tested with Sylvia 
 
Didn’t December fly by? Like Rina, I certainly had my fair share of food and drink over the festive season (a big thanks to my son Richard and his wife Lindsay). If you feel as we do, as if you’ve overdone it a little, then the next recipe may help to combat the bloated, yucky feeling that comes with it!
 
Overindulgence Tea
 
10 drops Wild Orange
2 drops Peppermint
5 drops Lemon
2 drops Ginger
3 drops Coriander
1 tbs Honey
Overindulgence Tea
In a small bottle, combine all the oils together. Place the honey in a cup or mug and fill with hot water. Stir until the honey has dissolved and add 2 drops of the oil mixture. Mix well and sip slowly.

Although it may seem like a lot of honey, it really isn’t too sweet. There is a strong smell of Coriander initially, but it doesn’t overwhelm the drink itself. It’s very soothing and definitely helps with the feeling of fullness! I think it would also help with nausea and tummy upsets.

My final recipe is in anticipation of one of my New Year’s Resolutions to keep fit and take more exercise. This seems to feature every year but I’m hoping to get beyond January this time!
Post-Workout Rub Recipe
 
3 drops Marjoram 
2 drops Thyme
4 drops Roman Chamomile
4 drops Cypress
3 drops Lemon
2 drops Peppermint

 
Mix all the oils together and gently massage into your muscles and joints to prevent stiffness and pain. As I haven't tried this yet, I’ll report back in February’s issue.

I’m always looking for people to try out and to make suggestions for other ideas and recipes, so contact me if you want take part and I’ll send you a sample to try!

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year or Blwyddyn Newydd Dda as we say in Welsh.
