Digestive Enzymes in the morning routine
Digestive Enzymes are crucial to the digestive system and in preventing illnesses. TerraZyme by doTERRA is a top product for my health and wellness and it’s how I start every morning. TerraZyme helps break down the foods we eat into smaller molecules that support our guts ability to absorb and deliver nutrients to the rest of the body.

Warm water & Lemon routine in the morning
You want to start your morning routine with water and Lemon EO to get things moving! The water and lemon combo will support your body with the flushing of toxins and digestion. You want to make sure you drink it on an empty stomach. I use 2-3 drops of Lemon essential oil. You can also add a fresh cut lemon with a manual juicer squeezing half into the glass. Then wait a half hour to let your liver work. You also want to make sure your drinking filtered water. Most tap and bottled water contain fluoride as well as certain chemicals and compounds. You can also learn more about our Berkey water filtration system! Lemons contain an antioxidant called D-Limonene
Mastering Your morning with Gratitude & Affirmations
Did you know that the simple task of writing down what your grateful for each morning can have multiple health benefits mentally and physically? Journaling is a simple act of writing down your thoughts and helping you become more mindful of your mindset. Try to notice new things that your grateful for each day. Affirmations are a great way to capture your thoughts and become more self-aware of any negativity, fear, worry, and emotional distress. When your affirmations are repeated they begin to change your thoughts and pattern of thinking. I love to use the Yoga line aromatically or topically in the morning for this time. This is a great practice to master your morning!
Move your Body
For me this is the hardest part of my morning routine. We all know the importance of moving our bodies and finding the best time. If I don’t stretch and move my body in the morning then I make excuses the rest of the day. Getting up and getting it done leaves me feeling better and more productive for the remainder of the day. Moving your body also reduces body weight, blood pressure, and bad cholesterol. It also does wonders for reducing stress and improving mental health!
Essential oils In your morning routine
Some of my favorite invigorating oils for a morning routine are Wild Orange, Peppermint, and Adaptiv. One of the fastest and most effective ways to impact your mental health is with essential oils. Essential oils are powerful in creating and maintaining emotional health. Applying them topically over the heart or putting a few drops in your hands or diffuser can give you an instant pick me up! Bonus tip: I love to add Blue Tansy to my big toe in the morning. Blue Tansy is great for encouraging inspired action.
