Using doTERRA Oils!! GIVEAWAY!!
Getting back to natural home remedies truly appeals to me! So when Tricia from doTerra and The Nourish approached me about doing a review for doTERRA essential oils, I jumped!! To get started, Tricia asked questions about me, my family and our health concerns, then sent me several doTERRA Essential Oils to try.
I love the idea of using products that are all natural. I have to admit, I never really thought about the difference between brands of essential oils. What others put into their products verses what goes into doTERRA essential oils. I just really never thought about it. I am thinking about it now!! For the past few weeks I’ve been using doTERRA oils. I’m not only impressed but I’m also in LOVE!!
Along with the oils, Tricia sent a book called Modern Essentials. WOW!! First, this book has every oil and every blend that doTERRA carries. NOT only, what the oils are, but truly detailed instructions on how and when to use the oils AND where to place the oils on your body to get the most benefit. SO MUCH information about each and every oil and blend! From Historical Uses, French Uses, Application to Other Possible Uses and MORE!! On EACH and every blend and essential oils!! I love this book!! I have remedies highlighted through out the book!! This really is the Bible of Essential Oils.

Using The doTERRA Essential Oils
I know that you will be amazed, shocked and in awe when I tell you, I have stress. I KNOW!!! ME?!?! Okay, okay fine. It’s 2014 just about everyone over the age of 6 has some stress. Whether it’s stress from an upcoming test to wondering if you will have your job for another year. I have a hard time letting go and un-winding. I lay down at night and can’t stop my mind from racing. I can’t seem to unwind or relax. I worry about everything! From DH’s Multiple Scoliosis, my Mom, my KIDS, my GRANDkids. I admit I worry myself into depression like nobody’s business. That’s one of the main reasons I jumped at the chance to review doTERRA oils.
I’ve been using Balance on my wrists and the bottoms of my feet. Yes, the bottom of the feet. Did you know there are more sweat glands on the bottom of your feet than anywhere else on your body?? I have to admit, I have not been having BAD days since I’ve started using Balance. Balance is such a wonderful UPLIFTING scent! I can’t get enough of it!! It’s calming and uplifting and well, perfect!
I layer Balance with Wild Orange. I LOVE this scent!! Wild Orange is wonderful for depression and for anxiety. Instant mood lifter!
Breathe and On Guard WOW! When these bottles arrived I still had my cold and especially that cough!! I didn’t think that cough would ever leave. 2 days of rubbing a couple of drops of BREATHE on my chest and cough GONE!! G.O.N.E!! These two bottles should be in every single medicine chest!! On Guard I put on the bottoms of my feet and my neck. WOW!!
Past Tense as in my headache is in the PAST!!! I suffer from migraines, which is why Tricia sent me this oil. As soon as I noticed the start of a headache I massaged a drop or two into my temples. I haven’t had a migraine since. In minutes GONE!!
Melaleuca This oil has a vast array of items it will help with! From burns, warts, cold sores, athletes foot and more!! Granddaughter Alice had a rash on her tushy. GONE!! 1 application. A couple of drops mixed in coconut oil. GONE!!
Last and most certainly NOT least!! MS Blend. Multiple Sclerosis really is a [email protected] on wheels. DH experiences tingling, numbness and pain on a daily basis. This MS Blend contains frankincense and peppermint. Rub a couple of drops on the spine, any numb areas or areas with pain. DH has also been putting a drop or two on the bottoms of his feet. He can tell a difference when he misses a day. He has more pain, tingles and numbness. WOW!!
Using the oils safely
dōTERRA’s Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils can be used safely by your family for a variety of wellness applications. However, there are several safety guidelines that you should follow when using essential oils and essential oil products.
- Be sure to use only 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oils and follow all label warnings and instructions.
- If redness or irritation occurs when using essential oils topically, apply a vegetable oil such as fractionated coconut oil or olive oil to the
- affected area.
- Essential oils should not be used in the eyes, inside the ear canal, or in open wounds. In the event of accidental contact with the eye, dilute with vegetable oil NOT water.
- Do NOT consume an essential oil internally unless labeled with a Supplement Facts box with specific dietary supplement use instructions and warnings.
- Discontinue the use of an essential oil if you experience severe skin, stomach, or respiratory irritation or discomfort.
- When using on children, apply a very small amount of oil to test skin or other sensitivity. Do not use oil on a child’s hand as they may transfer to their eyes or mouth.
- Consult your physician before using essential oils if you are pregnant or under a doctor’s care or have other safety questions regarding
- essential oils.
It is important to remember that therapeutic-grade essential oils are highly-concentrated plant extracts and should be used with reasonable care. Consulting with someone who has experience with essential oils will make your first experience with essential oils more enjoyable and rewarding. TRICIA!!! As you learn how to use essential oils through personal experience, share your knowledge with others in a safe and responsible way and encourage others to do the same.
Due to their natural molecular composition, essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically. Application of essential oils can have immediate, localized benefit to the target area of application. They have restorative and calming properties and can be used effectively with massage and beauty therapy. They are also natural disinfectants. The chemical structure of essential oils also allows them to be absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin for internal benefit throughout the body.
Very IMPORTANT!! Consistency is KEY!! doTERRA essential oils and blends can’t help you if you don’t use them!!
Equally important!! Don’t settle for cheap imitations. Be sure you are buying PURE essential oils!! Yes, doTERRA oils are on the pricey side BUT you really truly get what you pay for!! Don’t waste your money on cheap oils with fillers!
Oils should be extracted using a low-temperature and low-pressure system. Steam distillation is the preferred process, and ideally the oils should be from the first distillation. Make sure your oils DO NOT contain any other ingredients whatsoever. Look for 100% pure oil. Ideally, the oils should be from a first distillation.
