Valentine’s Breakfast

doTERRA: We are so excited too. Now, Valentine's Day is a great time to come together as a family and with friends. And today, we wanted to share a few festive Valentine's DIYs that you can share with everyone in your house. So, to kick it off, what do you like to do to start off your Valentine's Day in a festive way?

Rubi: I love Valentine's. I think it's a great time to spread love to those. And I'm excited to share with everyone a few recipes and DIYs that you can try in your home and share with your loved ones. First off, we have these delicious On Guard pancakes that I feel like everyone should try. In this recipe, it includes 2 to 4 drops of our On Guard blend. So, if you love the Cinnamon, Clove, Rosemary tastes like I do. I think this is a great way to start your Valentine's Day.

doTERRA: Absolutely. And it doesn't hurt to have a little bit of extra protection in there either.

Rubi: It's one of my favorite oils, this protective blend.

Snack Time

doTERRA: Now, when it's later in the day, it comes to lunchtime or snack time. What is your idea for bringing the Valentine's love into that time of day.

Rubi: Baked goods.

doTERRA: Absolutely!

Rubi: Don't we all love baked goods? Well, we have this blueberry muffin recipe and it includes our Lemon essential oil. I love citrus tastes, right? This recipe is awesome. It's bright, it's delicious, and it's super satisfying. And it's here to save the day. If you're craving something sweet and straight from a bakery.

doTERRA: Yes.

Rubi: And Lemon is also one of those oils that I use in my home for cleaning and all sorts of different things. And I think it's also one of those oils that you can put in your food, in desserts, and it just makes everything taste a lot better.

doTERRA: Absolutely. And one of my favorite hacks that I've ever seen with muffins is people will put a little marble or something in there to shape it into a heart as it bakes. And that would be so fun for Valentine's.

Rubi: Yes. And I have three little kids at home, so I know this is a great way for us to all come together, use our doTERRA products, and spend time together.

Sweet Treat

doTERRA: Absolutely. Now, what about something more indulgent, something more sweet? What is a tasty treat that the whole family can make together?

Rubi: Well, chocolate, can save anyone's day, I think.

doTERRA: Perfect for Valentine's Day.

Rubi: Yes! We also want to share this other yummy recipe. If you're wanting to snack something during the day, snacking chocolates with Peppermint essential oil, that sounds so good, right?

doTERRA: That is a wonderful combination.

Rubi: I think it's just the perfect little snack, Right? And this recipe, it only requires four ingredients and it can be made in a hurry if you're short on time. I mean, I'm a working mom, three kids, like I said, so I don't have much free time.

So, this is a great way for me to create something sweet for the family and also include my family members as well, kind of come together and make this. And the recipe also includes dark chocolate, almonds, and coconut oil. So, it's really healthy as well. And plus, of course, the Peppermint essential oil.

doTERRA: Yes. And that Peppermint oil gives such the perfect level of peppermint flavor.

Rubi: It's so powerful. So, you've got to be careful. I think a couple drops is probably enough. But yes, Peppermint essential oils is amazing, too.

Valentine’s Day Craft

doTERRA: It's one of my favorites! Now, Rubi before we end if you're looking for a way to spread this Valentine's Day love to other people. What ideas do you have?

Rubi: Yeah, well, we have these super easy doTERRA Valentine's printables. Okay? And these you can use it to show your friends, family members how much you love them. These Valentines, which will be available on our blog.
