As part of this new series, I want to talk a little about essential oils. Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They have been around for centuries. Recently essential oils have become quite “popular”. There are many companies that sell essential oils, and which company is right for you is a personal decision. I decided to go with doTERRA after doing my own research and using a few samples myself. One use of Breathe and I was hooked! For me, essential oils was a natural progression from where we were, and what we had tried.
My first experience with essential oils was with another brand that is readily available at local health food stores. And while they served a purpose, it was not until I tried therapeutic grade oils with a company that supported it’s product and provided education that I learned what a wide range of uses they serve. In our family, we use essential oils daily: topically, diffused into the air, and occasionally internally* for things like cuts & bruises, burns, headaches, fevers, coughs, congestion, hormone balance, stomach aches, and hormone balance. Essential oils support the body’s natural ability to heal itself, and for us that fits with where we are going in other areas of health and nutrition. I began my journey with doTERRA essential oils over a year ago, and now I am ready to share our successes with you, mostly because I believe in the product, and because I think we all strive for a more healthy way of living. This is just one step in our journey, but it has been a major step in the right direction.

In case you were wondering….I started with the family physician kit pictured above. It gave me enough of the oils I would use on a daily basis to get started, and in using a variety of them daily, I learned about new uses and combinations of oils to target specific concerns. I have since grown my collection of oils way beyond the ones that are pictured here.
I am an independent distributor of doTERRA Essential Oils.
