Oh, Monday Mindset & Mudras

Oh, Monday Mindset & Mudras
Happy Monday! It's a day of the week that we associate with fresh starts, new ideas, abundant opportunities and so many people see Mondays as, well, the very opposite. 

Ever since we began working together as entrepreneurs we have learned that mindset really is everything. How you start your day, your week, your month, your year - it all has to do with how you set your own intentions. The good news is that nobody does this all on their own, we all need the help and support of our community. Keeping our head in the game requires a coach in sports, right? It's the same thing in real life. Sitting at home and left to our own devices we are easily self-swayed to the couch, in our pyjamas, watching re-runs of Love It Or List It with Jillian Harris. While maybe that's not a bad thing every once in a while, living an extraordinary life filled with extraordinary things is not an overnight achievement made with one single valiant effort. Jillian Harris didn't just become the star of her design show by accident. It takes focus, dedication, passion and hard. It can also take a little help.

Start your Mondays in Peachland, BC with us, Tonia and Colin, and experience a little push and nudge at the beginning of each week. Based on a monthly cycle, we have build workshops to inspire you to take action and see your goals through. It doesn't matter what they are, it just matters that they matter to you. In four week cycles we will work through lingering stress, release unwanted energy, get clear on our vision for the week and month ahead, set our intentions, consider old patterns, build our awareness of our immune system and walk out of these workshops empowered and courageous people.  

Tickets are available through eventbrite by clicking the link here: Oh, Monday Mindset & Mudras

Tickets are $25/per week or purchase a single ticket for the month and save some money! We are also offering a special promotion to launch our new workshops! Your first workshop is free with the Purchase of a Premium Starter Kit through our website www.teamesos.com by clicking "products". It's a fabulous way to include essential oils into your everyday life and a great introduction prior to getting started with our workshops. There is no prerequisite to join these classes and you certainly do not have to have any prior essential oil or mudra knowledge to get the most out of our Mondays together. 

Kick those old habits to the curb and live your best life. Surround yourself with a community of women and men who are vibrating on the same frequency. Make and create your life. Join us on Mondays at 10am at:

Hope to see you there!

iTovi to Simplify Your Essential Oil Journey

iTovi to Simplify Your Essential Oil Journey
How do you know what essential oils you could use to help but your body back into balance? 

In the beginning of our journey we didn't really know either and to be honest, we still don't. We're a really busy couple with full time day jobs, a hoe based business, a dog, our hobbies, marriage and a super fun social life. It's really handy for us - and probably for your busy life, too - when we're on the go and only have a minute or two to scan and run. 

The iTovi is a tiny handheld device that you hold facedown in your palm (with the oval metal portion touching your skin) and through an app on your phone you activate it to scan your body. The whole thing takes about three minutes from turning your iTovi on, to opening the app to seeing the results of your scan. 

What is the scan actually doing?

When you are scanning your body, the iTovi device is essentially making notes of your biomarkers (blood pressure or pulse, as one example) in your body. Your iTovi takes into account your gender and age range and selects products - we only ever scan for essential oils - that will help to put your body's biomarkers back into balance.


Cool, right?

We have found in our home that the iTovi scanner is most effective if we're consulting this teeny device about once a week so we typically scan on Mondays but you can choose whatever day works best for you. You can set the scanner to either provide 3, 5, 7 or 10 suggestions. We have ours set to select 10 for us but if we have a friend over who is either new to oils or just a little curious we might not overwhelm them with 10, so we definitely ask how many suggestions they'd like. Totally up to you and very easy to change in the app on your phone through the settings. 

Step #1 - Purchase your iTovi Scanner - you have 2 plan options but we always recommend the full buy out to avoid monthly payments forever. It def saves you money. 

Step #2 - Download the app on your phone once it arrives

Step #3 - Enter your information into your profile in the app

Step #4 - Start your first scan!

When your products list comes up the oils closer to the top are the more recommended suggestions. What we typically like to do is either diffuse a few of the oils together a couple of times over the next week and wear a few of the others topically. Since both of us are scanning together (#happyspousehappyhouse) we might compare oils and see if we have any that are #samesies so we can diffuse those ones in particular since we'll both get the benefits from those oils. 

Easy Peasy Resources For Balancing Your Body

There is no overthinking, no wondering if you got it right or worse, spending hours on the computer trying to make sure you're buying the right oils for you. The iTovi takes a lot of the guess work out of what our monthly orders look like. We make our list of oils from our scans that we don't have and build our Essential Rewards orders that way. #lifemadesimple.

Three Easy Ways To Improve Your Health

Three Easy Ways To Improve Your Health
Health is all the rage these days. Am I right?

Everyone is giving their two cents worth with all of these before and after photos (typically not the same person, or the same outfit, let alone the same location.... so?). 

This isn't about the way that you look in a bathing suit. This is about how you feel in your body in your sweatpants OR your bathing suit. Healthy, whole, happy, glowing, strong and fit. The way you look is a byproduct of treating your body with wellness and healthy goodness. The point of life is to enjoy it - so what I'm not going to tell you to do is diet. Diets are notoriously unsuccessful because you go back to the lifestyle you were living before the diet once you've either reached your target (and celebrated) or after you decided it became too difficult. 

What if, instead, we thought about adding something simple to our lifestyle and just making a tweak or two to start?

#1 - Energy is something we all complain about at some point in our lives. We might be stressed, overworked, have a hard week with the kids (well not us, but you might have kids), or maybe we're just prone to getting sick. Building up a healthy immune system isn't just about eating right and exercise. Supplementation is very important. Even as vegetarians Colin and I don't ever get enough of the greens we need every single day. With this first supplement added to your daily regime, you will begin to feel increased and long lasting energy. No crashes in the middle of the day - just better balanced energy all day long. 

Multigreens from Young Living is Health Canada Approved as a Natural Health Product hat will help to support your whole body. Some of the amazing benefits are helping to support healthy liver function, a great source of antioxidants, protects your cells from oxidative damage caused by free radicals, a great source of amino acids and a fantastic supplement to use if you enjoy working out. 

One or two capsules a day is a very simple addition to your regime! So what's up next?

#2 - Do something creative. Your energy is stuck, you're bored, you're forgetting to be creative. Sing one of your favourite songs, write a poem, paint a picture, design a graphic, do a yoga practice, make a mala bracelet, play a song on the guitar, whatever it is. Release some energy and pour it into the world. Your tension will subside and your happiness will increase. Plus, now that you're taking Multigreens every single day, you have plenty more energy to be creative. Am I right?

#3 - Replace one cleaning product in your home with Thieves Household Cleaner. Each week, find a new way to use this cleaner, made from plants, minerals and essential oils from Young Living, to replace another cleaner in your home. This bottle will stretch a very long way, especially once you experience its versatility. Grab yourself a few spray bottles, add one capful and fill with distilled water for glass and window cleaner. Add 3-4 capfuls to another for every day surface cleaning including cabinets, cupboards, sinks, walls and baseboards. Lastly, add 4-5 capfuls for tubs and toilets - which darn near covers every single surface in your home. One single capful in your mop water with three drops pine and three drops lemon - hot damn! You will never, ever go back.

Now why would  talk about cleaner? Why and how will this switch be better for your health?

My friends, I have made it part of my mission to educate about "fragrance" as an umbrella term that allows manufacturers to sneak toxic chemicals into our every day products. Cleaning your floors and surfaces with one quick switch of  product is simple. You do not need to use dirty products to clean your home. When your body systems are bombarded by toxic chemicals all day long, you become tired, your immune system is busy fighting off this yuck - but this is any easy, simple fix.

There is a better way, and accounts are free. Start today and we'll help you every step of the way.

The Light At The End Of The Tunnel

The Light At The End Of The Tunnel
People are often waiting for something better to happen to them. For instance, someone isn't happy with their life but doesn't really do much to change it?

Why is that?

When the opportunity to start a Network Marketing business presented itself we really sat down to talk about it. We understood a few things about the industry already:

  1. It wasn't going to be an overnight success like many people make the mistake of thinking.
  2. There was going to be a lot of work involved - it wouldn't be easy!
  3. We would have to learn a lot of new skills
  4. Eventually our residual income would be enough to not only retire us from our day jobs far earlier than expected, but also grow to really be able to provide for us for the rest of our lives. We will eventually see complete financial freedom.

What does financial freedom look like for you?

Think about that term for a moment. 

Residual income. Money always coming in. Continuous revenue stream. 

What if you started your own Network Marketing business with a team that already has all of your training put together for you. One on one coaching, weekly mini training newsletters, resources and more? You're completely supported. 

Since we started our Network Marketing business we have:

  • moved to another province - we literally live where people come from all over the world to vacation. That is paradise!
  • have made hundreds to thousands of dollars a month in residual income
  • grown into completely different human beings
  • purged all of the furniture, dishes, accents, clothes - everything and bought everything brand new - couches, bed frame, mattress, clothes, TV, TV stand, accessories and more
  • helped people from all over with their health goals - we've seen some people that were sick make some huge improvements!
  • helped other people see what Network Marketing and residual income could do for their family, too!

There are far too many chances to hold yourself back than there are to move forward and be successful. It's easy, simple and comfortable to stay where you are. That doesn't mean you have to. Choose to live your best life.  What happens next is humungous - you see past the horizon and you recognize that your emotions towards others who have lived their hopes and dreams are also achievable for you. No one is given different chances, different opportunities... not in our adult lives. You can chose whatever you want. 

Choose growth. Choose independence. Choose to be wealthy. Choose Team ESOS. We have your back. 

With Purpose,

Tonia & Colin

10 Essential Oils For Beginners

10 Essential Oils For Beginners
Starting something new can be a little bit overwhelming, we totally get it. thinking back to when we first started using essential oils pretty seriously in our home, we can relate to wanting information and support - which is why we have created this blog of our 10 best essential oils for beginners but also a supportive community ready and equipped to help out whenever you need it. We love this group of amazing people and we know you will, too. So we've made it super simple to get started. Let's break down those essential oils!

The Young Living Premium Starter Kit comes with all ten of these oils and a bonus oil called Northern Lights Black Spruce. The Desert Mist diffuser is gorgeous and you can start using your oils right away. The only thing missing is the carrier oil if you want to use your essential oils topically so I'd add V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex to your first order along with your Premium Starter Kit.
