What's in our Medicine Cabinet? Essential Oils!

21 Sep

Did you know that essential oils are:

– so potent, you only need a couple of drops

– 70 x more effective than dried?  1 drop of peppermint oil is equivalent to the potency of 28 cups of peppermint tea!

– in their most usable form: 30 seconds after applying them to the bottom of your feet, they are already in your bloodstream doing their ‘work’?

I never liked smelling essential oils for the immediate headache I would get. I’ve since learned that most oils are SYNTHETIC and not all natural (this includes oils that are therapeutic grade!).  So, healing with essential oils never attracted me – until my NAET doctor introduced me to dōTERRA products.  Now they ARE my medicine cabinet (along with food of course!) because of their profound benefits to our health and well being.  dōTERRA essential oils are the highest grade of essential oils available today.  In fact, they have created a new standard of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.

As the company explains:

“dōTERRA (CPTG) Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils represent the safest, purest, and most beneficial essential oils available today. They are gently and skillfully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy. Experienced essential oil users will immediately recognize dōTERRA’s superior quality standard for naturally safe, purely effective therapeutic-grade essential oils.”

doTERRA essential oils can be diffused aromatically into the air, applied topically on the skin, or taken internally as dietary supplements.  We have the Family Physician Single Kit and the Aroma-Touch kit in our medicine cabinet and we use them mostly as topical ‘medicine’.

The 3 most used essential oils for us, a family with a rambunctious little boy, are Lavender, Melaleuca and Peppermint.  Although we use Lavender a lot for relaxation during the night (and sleeping through it), Malaleuca for disinfecting and Peppermint for breathing, they are mostly used for when we get insect bites, wounds and mixed into our Jojoba Oil which we use as our moisturizer.  We  use Lemon for dry skin, I use Frankincense with my facial moisturizer (for wrinkles!), we use Breath-Ease when there is a cough or cold and we drop On Guard in our soap dispensers filled with Dr. Bronner’s soap.  Just this week, we used Deep Blue on my husband’s aching back and the usual week’s  worth of pain was gone in 2 days.  The Aroma-Touch kit can be used with special techniques to rid pains and discomfort.

We love dōTERRA products.  They are high-grade, natural, SAFE, non-toxic for everyone in the family and, very simply and most importantly, they WORK!!!  These essential oils are a MUST everyday resource for a family who wants to take control over their overall health.
