This month marks a special milestone for me and Be Well Essentials.  On June 6, 2019, I started posting monthly blogs featuring various topics focusing on health and well-being by using natural solutions powered by the sun! I have been a strong advocate for wellness and sharing that everything we put ON and IN our bodies either feeds or fights dis-ease in our bodies.  I invite you to check out my past posts, which remain timeless and relevant!


The weather is heating up and we find ourselves enjoying the great outdoors.  Unfortunately, most of the products on the market that help combat the sun, bugs, bumps, and bruises can be filled with toxic ingredients that disrupt our bodies and can lead to unfavorable outcomes in our health and overall well-being. 


Summer Skin Care

Essential tips for maintaining healthy and radiant skin during the summer months.


  1. Apply a broad-spectrum non-toxic & environmentally friendly sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher before going outdoors.
  2. Remember to reapply sunscreen every two hours.
  3. Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated and maintain its elasticity. Toss in electrolytes to maintain your optimal metabolic balance.
  4. Wear protective clothing, sunglasses, and hats to minimize sun exposure.
  5. Hydrate your skin with a lightweight moisturizer to replenish moisture lost during sun exposure.


Fun in the Sun!

In my Power of the Sun - Summer Suncare post, I share how our amazing dōTERRA sun product line helps support you and your family.   We have a special this month, where you can get our trusted and convenient travel-friendly sun protection kit featuring our doTERRA sun Face + Body Mineral Sunscreen Stick, doTERRA sun After Sun Restorative Body Mist, and our BRAND NEW doTERRA sun Mineral Sunscreen Lip Balm in a cute little water-resistant bag.
