Cleanse, Detox and Restore

By Blog Leave a comment

With a new year generally comes a few resolutions and commitments to uphold. I sure I’m not alone when I start a new year with the intention of healthy eating and weight loss.

This time last year I gave up all animal products and became a vegan, a lifestyle choice I still maintain today. However, I over-indulged over the festive season and definitely need a cleanse! There are a lot of cleanses around and you need to choose the one that will work for you.

I favour a cleanse and detox that eliminates alcohol, coffee, sugar and processed foods. I don’t eat dairy or red meat, however, these are also foods to avoid during a cleanse. Eat clean, lots of fresh fruit and veggies and drink plenty of water, around 3 litres per day.

Body brushing will support circulation and increase skin detoxification. Using a loofah or natural fibre body brush, brush the skin with firm circular strokes before you step into the shower. Exercise (not to vigorous at the beginning as you will be lacking energy as your body detoxes), practice meditation and mindfulness.

Reducing stress and assisting your body to return to a parasympathetic state will also help greatly. Diffuse or topically apply calming essential oils such as Lavender, Frankincense, Cedarwood, Balance, Lavender Peace, Bergamot, Petitgrain or Vetiver.

So why should you cleanse and detox?

1. Remove toxins from the body
2. Prevent chronic disease
3. Enhance immune system function
4. Lose weight
5. Slow premature aging
6. Improve quality of life
7. Increase energy
8. Improve skin quality
9. Mental and emotional clarity
10. Restore balance to our body’s systems

dōTERRA’s answer to minimizing toxic load comes in the form of a 30-day renewing cleanse, your annual “spring cleaning.” This detoxification program is simple and easy to follow. Consisting of a series of products that work with your inherent cleansing processes, when combined with a healthy diet, the renewing cleanse works to maximize the health and efficiency of your vital cleansing organs so that you can minimize toxic load naturally and maintain the results long-term. You can read more about the cleansing and detoxification process from dōTERRA here.

The products you will require for the 30 day cleanse and restore program are as follows:

  • LifeLong Vitality Pack – essential nutrients, metabolism benefits, and powerful antioxidants designed to help promote energy, health, and lifelong vitality
  • Terrazyme – digestive enzyme
  • Zendocrine oil blend – essential oils for organ support and detoxification
  • Zendocrine complex – herbal support for organs
  • GX assist – cleansing supplement
  • PB Assist – probiotic for a healthy gut
  • Lemon essential oil – detoxification
  • Smart and Sassy essential oil blend/softgels – appetite management and weight loss

Many of these products can be purchased in dōTERRA’s Cleanse and Restore enrolment kit. At present, most of these products are only available through dōTERRA via a US order. The Cleanse and Restore enrolment kit will cost around AU$391, and this includes your wholesale dōTERRA membership which enables you to receive your products at 25% off retail price. Contact me for ordering information or follow this link.

dōTERRA’s detoxification blend is Zendocrine. This blend is the number one essential oil to use during times of detox and cleansing. Zendocrine blend supports the body’s natural ability to rid itself of unwanted substances. It supports the healthy cleansing and filtering functions of the liver, kidneys, colon, lungs, and skin.

This powerful blend combines Rosemary, Cilantro, and Juniper Berry, known for their detoxifying properties and ability to support healthy liver function, while Tangerine and Geranium have purifying effects against unhealthy substances. Zendocrine helps cleanse the body of toxins and free radicals that can slow the body’s systems down, leaving a heavy, weighted feeling.

Uses:

~ Add 1–2 drops to citrus drinks, teas, or water to support healthy liver function.

~ Add 4 drops to a gel cap if you are not keen on the flavour.

~ Dilute with a carrier oil and apply topically to areas of concern.

Cleansing diffuser/topical blend

  • Lemongrass, the Oil of Cleansing – great for lethargy and purification
  • Wild Orange, the Oil of Abundance – used to foster a positive mood and create abundance
  • Frankincense, the Oil of Truth – use for cleansing, renewal, and mental focus

~ Diffuse 3 drops of each in a diffuser.

~ Blend 5 drops of Lemongrass, 10 drops of Wild Orange and 10 drops of Frankincense in a 10mL roller ball bottle, top with a carrier oil and apply to pulse points, behind ears, or spine.

Please let me know if you have any questions, I would love to support you on your cleanse. I have done two dōTERRA Cleanses and will be starting another one this week. Each time I come out of them feeling energised, cleaner and less stressed. I also average around 5kgs weight loss in the 30 days. So they have certainly worked for me!

Happy cleansing!
