I am the first to admit that I was a little skeptical when it comes to using oils, but have had a change of heart over the past few weeks! This winter, every single person in our entire family has been sick! We have had numerous doctor visits, antibiotics and even stays in the hospital. We finally decided that enough was enough and gave dōTERRA Essential Oils a try!
What is an Essential Oil?
Essential Oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential Oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits.
We split them up to give them a try! Here are a few examples of how dōTERRA Essential Oils have helped each of us:
Camille's family has had quite the case of RSV this winter. Her youngest daughter, Taylor, is 3 months old and was constantly coughing and had a terrible cold. Camille rubbed a few drops of dōTERRA Breathe on Taylor's feet and chest to help clear her lungs and sinuses as well as to calm her down to sleep better. It was amazing to see the difference it made in Taylor's breathing and reduction in her coughing!
Kristen has also had quite a few sick children in her home this season. Her daughter, Mailey, is just 2 months old and was hospitalized for RSV. We recently had a 7 hour drive in the car and sweet Mailey was coughing almost the whole way. Luckily, we had some dōTERRA in the car and rubbed it on her feet to help calm her down and soothe her cough. Kristen's other daughters also had Croup. With all of her kids being sick, and her husband in the middle of medical school, Kristen couldn't afford to get sick! She decided to dilute a few drops of dōTERRA On Guard and spray it throughout her house to eliminate the airborne pathogens that would get her sick. She has yet to catch any of the sicknesses going around!
I suffer from headaches all the time! I try to avoid taking Advil or Tylenol until it gets so painful that I can't take it anymore! I decided to rub a little dōTERRA Peppermint and Lavender on my temples. In a matter of minutes, my headache was gone! I was so excited that I could cure my headaches with something natural rather than filling my bottle with dose after dose of pain reliever.
Stephanie recently ran her first marathon, and is on track to run her second this spring. When she suffers from sore muscles, she turns right to dōTERRA Deep Blue. Rubbing dōTERRA Deep Blue on her muscles immediately gives a cooling sensation that helps dissolve any pain or discomfort!
Lauren is a freshman in college and doesn't have much time because of a busy school schedule, work and her social life. She is constantly using dōTERRA Frankincense. She will apply it to the bottom of her feet to support immune function. She mixes it with Lavender and Peppermint to reduce stress. She even uses it it on her skin (and she has the best skin of all the sisters)!
Kendra is a junior in high school is between school, soccer, work, dating and taking college courses she has a lot of stress in her life! She uses dōTERRA Melaluca (also known as tea tree oil) to cleanse her skin and help with blemishes. She also uses it on her nails to promote healthy nail growth!
