I started small. We signed up with the company, spending about $150 on a set of oils. As I began to use them, I realized that I couldn't be without them!
I've heard so many more stories about what the oils can do, and have experiences of my own to add. I've become a consultant for the company.
Just a few things that have changed:
Albuterol, Vicks, Sudafed Breathe
Zyrtec, Benadryl, (antihistamines) Lemon, Lavender,
Antacids, antidiarreal, anti nausea Digestzen
Sports creams, Ibuprofen, Tylenol (for pain) Deep Blue, Peppermint
Zit creams, Antibacterial cream Lavender, Melaleuca
Dandruff shampoo Lavender
ADD and ADHD Rx Vetiver, Balance, InTune
And then there are some oils which there are no substitutes for on the market.
OnGuard: a protective blend which kills viruses, molds, and
bacteria, inside and outside the body.
Frankincense: A healing and calming oil.
Balance: A grounding blend for anxiety and depression.
Serenity: A blend of oils for relaxation. It works for everything
from insomnia, to depression, to anxiety, and hyperactivity.
Purify: A blend of oils for cleansing. I love to add it to my homemade cleaning solutions, to a towel in the dryer for musty laundry, and it can be used topically to cleanse wounds.
This is in no way an exhaustive list of oils. It's just the ones I use most often by a company called DoTerra. The best part of using the oils is that there's no side effects. The worst thing I've experienced is accidentally getting an oil too close to my eyes or in a sensitive spot. I use another oil, like coconut oil to pull it off, and I'm fine. No long term damage from pharmaceuticals to worry about. I was taking 3 antihistamines a day to try and get some relief from my hives. They would put me to sleep for 12 hours, even if I took only half the dose!
I am not a healthcare professional. The above information is based on personal experience.
