How I have added Essential Oils to my life!!! http://www.doterra.com/us/site/davidson
Seasonal Threats, NO…I’m not doing it!!!!
“Hello!” Welcome, if this is your first time stopping by. I’m so glad you are here. Today I just wanted to take a quick minute to share my personal testimony about how essential oils have relieved me.
Just a little over 2 months ago I had an oils class. Simply because I was curious if it was possible for oils to be a benefit. I totally believe what we put in our body either heals or kills. So, it is my opinion that you can gain healing benefits from your food etc.
This is a new journey for my family & me. I am NOT an expert. However I am a daily user of Essential Oils. I hope you will continue to read as I share my experience.
When I received my 1st sample of Essential Oil I had SOOOOOO much doubt. I mean lets be real, I’m 50. If oils really worked I would have known about them already, right??? WRONG!!!
Seasonal threats are very hard on me & I share my home with (2) fur babies. One is hypo allergenic. The other loses enough hair for (3) dogs. So, to say the least my eyes itch and water. I have a runny nose & itchy throat.
I woke up one Saturday morning with a terrible headache. I just recently turned 50 & have decided to try my best to make better choices going forward. I thought to myself, let me get on pinterest & see what I can figure out with this oil that I had a sample of. Breathe from doTERRA.
I had a diffuser (which I had purchased as a room deodorizer, did I mention DOGS!) I came across the doTERRA blend *Breathehttp://www.doterra.com/us/site/davidson/breathe this just happened to be one of the samples I had been given.
Can I just mention again the doubt that I had. It was my mission to either prove to myself that the oils actually could be used as an alternative to medication or that they were the “new” room deodorizer. At this point I had refused to take anything for my headache/sinus pressure. Taking an OTC allergy pill & Advil was an everyday part of my life.
So, I put about 10 drops of Breathe http://www.doterra.com/us/site/davidson/breathe in my diffuser, sat down next to it with a cup of coffee. Seriously! within minutes, MINUTES. My head had opened up. My headache had stopped. It was at that moment when I decided I would use oils every day. This was a huge part of starting my journey as a wellness advocate with doTERRA.
With Essential Oils I don’t think you ever stop learning. There is so much and what I’m about to share with you works great for me. However you need to remember that we each metabolize the oils differently. Therefore you may have different results.
Always! Always! make 100% sure that your Essential Oils are CTG (certified therapeutic grade) Purchase from a trusted source. If you don’t know an advocate you can hit me up, I’ll be glad to help.
I’m super excited to say that since I’ve become familiar with some of the Essential Oils I have been able to remove ALL OTC medications from my home. We use (Lemon, Lavendar, Peppermint & Frankincense ) 2 drops each added into a Veggie Cap every morning. Usually we only need this one time per day. However with oils you use a smaller amount more often. So, if throughout the day maybe 3 or 4 hours later I start feeling the pressure again. I will either add a few drops of peppermint & lemon to my water or take another veggie cap.
Lemon http://www.doterra.com/us/site/davidson/lemon – Supports healthy respiratory function, seasonal discomfort
Lavenderhttp://www.doterra.com/us/site/davidson/lavender – Calming & relaxing, may help support your immune system during seasonal threats. Promotes feelings of more clear breathing & open airways.
Pepperminthttp://www.doterra.com/us/site/davidson/peppermint – Helps with respiratory function and breathing.
Frankincensehttp://www.doterra.com/us/site/davidson/frankincense – Supports cellular function, lung and respiratory function.
Above is the blend that we use (2 drops of each) into a veggie cap http://www.doterra.com/us/site/davidson/Veggiecap We take one capsule each morning, followed with lots of liquid. If you spill any on the outside of the capsule you will know. LOL its weird at first but then you become accustomed to the way the oils taste & won’t mind it.
There are several people who just drop this in the morning water…I prefer the capsule. Later in the day I don’t mind the oil in my water. If you do use your oils like this be sure to drink from a (Not Plastic) cup. Glass, stainless etch. Oils pull toxins therefore it will pull the toxins out of your plastics.
Thank you for taking time to read about my “oily” experience. I have enjoyed learning and testing out the claims. I can tell you that I have not been disappointed at all. Remember if you try something and you are not completely satisfied get with a Wellness Advocate so they can help you maneuver your way through. It is a lot of information & can seem overwhelming. Just learn a little bit at a time.
See you next time, be blessed 🙂
