Below at the bottom of the article you will find a map for Metro Vancouver locals of all of the places you can visit that are open to all.
Included in the list are cafés and restaurants, indoor options, outdoor activities and events. You will also find lots of new parks, playgrounds, trails, bike parks and more to explore.
I didn’t include all of the skating rinks and pools since I heard most are open. It’s best to double check and call before visiting just to be on the safe side.
* To see the map please scroll to the bottom.

DIY Holiday Gift Ideas:
If you’re looking for some cheap and easy DIY holiday gift ideas check out this class I hosted last week. You will learn how to make car diffusers, chocolates, bath salts, coffee scrub, play dough, heat packs and more. I used doTERRA’s Madagascar Vanilla in almost all of these recipes, including the homemade chocolates! I’ve been adding it to all of my holiday baking too. It’s my new favourite oil! You can watch the whole video on Facebook here: DIY Holiday Gifts
Immune System & Mental Wellness Support:
Another great gift option is the gift of essential oils. For those of you that know me you know that I am obsessed with using my oils for everything. Did you know that unlike most other oils, you can take many of doTERRA’s essential oils internally? This is because they are 100% pure and therapeutic grade in comparison to other oils on the market that have been adulterated. Check out these holiday gift ideas here.
My family uses essential oils daily to boost both our immune systems and moods. We’re also using them to detox and help ease our anxieties and stress from the state of the world right now.
This month doTERRA has a fantastic deal where you will receive a free holiday trio ( a 5ml Frankincense, a 5ml Holiday Love and a 5ml Myrrh) with a 200 point enrollment order. My favourite starter kit is the Healthy Start Kit. It is the most affordable and has all of my favourite oils that I use daily: Healthy Start Kit
Frankincense– for stress and mood boost. It also helps with cellular regeneration
Lemon– for detoxing, energy and cleaning
Peppermint– for headaches, energy and focus
On Guard– for immunity, fighting colds/ flu and cleaning
Lavender– for sleep, calming and skin and allergy issues
Balance– for stress relief, depression, meditation
Deep Blue– muscle aches, pain relief
Easy Air– helps open sinuses, stuffy nose relief, allergies
Zengest– digestion issues, bloating, acid reflux
Tea Tree- cleansing, antiseptic, good for cold and flu
The Healthy Start kit comes with ten, 5ml bottles and a pebble diffuser. Find out more about how to get it: Healthy Start Enrollment Kit
Are you interested in trying some of these, but you don’t want a whole kit? You can order them separately if you like. Let me know and I’ll get you a sample of any of the above oils.
