We are doing it as a family. Today was 'get a treat' So we picked up Dunkin Donuts.😁
Truth be told.. I did not have one. I had eggnog instead 🥛. Did you know, some people drink eggnog warm? I recently learned of this. I thought it would taste gross. (Yes I tried it 🙌). Surprisingly, it did taste okay. 😁☕

ON WITH OUR ANCIENT OILS
Common Myrtle, also known as Corsican pepper, has been used for thousands of years as a symbol of love, honor, happiness, and generosity. Its benefits were well known as early as 600 B.C. In the Bible, it was used in purification ceremonies.
Directions For Use.
Diffuse: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with a carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.
Cassia - One of my favorites!
Cassia Oil, Cinnamomum cassia-
A warming oil that dates back to biblical times, Cassia essential oil may promote healthy digestion and immune function while providing a strong, uplifting aroma.*
A close relation to Cinnamon. Cassia has been used for thousands of years for its many health benefits. It is also one of the essential oils mentioned in the Old Testament. Cassia is noted for its unmistakable fragrance and calming aromatic properties.
* Experimental research suggests that internal use of Cinnamaldehyde, a major constituent of Cassia, may support a healthy gastrointestinal tract.
* Cassia is a great oil to diffuse during cold months due to its warming properties and spicy scent.
Due to its caustic nature, Cassia oil should be diluted with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil when applied to the skin and can be very strong when inhaled directly. When diluted and applied topically, Cassia can help soothe the body. Cassia oil can be used in cooking either as a replacement for cinnamon in pies and breads or by itself in a myriad of entrees and desserts.
Directions For Use
● Add one drop of Cassia essential oil to citrus blends or diffuse with Clove and Ginger during fall and.
● Take one to two drops in veggie capsules for added immune support.*
● Combine one drop with a carrier oil and massage for a warming sensation.
● Combine one to two drops along with Lemon oil in a glass of water to support healthy digestion and metabolism.*

This Doterra oil is Kosher certified.
Spikenard - I call it the extender oil.
Whatever an Essential Oil is used for Spikenard will extend the effectiveness of the it and the scent.
It's a flowering plant of the Valerian family, is native to high altitudes in the sub-alpine and alpine regions of the Himalayan mountains. Spikenard is another Ancient Oil found in the Bible.
