I have experienced the mirmagical power of essential oils since I discovered them about ten years ago… and finally I have found a provider of “eo” (short for essential oils) that stands up over the rest for quality and thus results!
Having searched “high and low” for a product that is of the highest quality available, I finally found doTerra…. such incredible products that I signed on to be able to share it with friends and family.
Please check out all of the healing properties of all the oils via my store link:
Essential oils are highly concentrated plant oils removed from plants by steam distillation or by a cold press methods.
Essential oils have been used as medicine for centuries dating back to the early Egyptians and are most often recognized as the Sacred gifts from the Magi to the Christ child!
Their therapeutic value in both physical and emotional healing is *mirmagical* as these 100% natural plant and herb extracts have been shown to be highly effective medicines when taken internally, applied topically, and of course, inhaled aromatically as ‘aromatherapy’. But many people remain unaware of the wide range of health benefits that can be derived from essential oils, and how these earth-based remedies can provide lasting relief from all sorts of ailments both physical and emotional.
For example, Frankincense helps with spiritual awareness and calmness, Orange oil helps one relax, whereas Peppermint and Rosemary help with mental alertness;
Essential oils can last 1 to 4 years depending on how they are stored. Carrier oils -which are used to dilute the essential oils include hazelnut, walnut, avocado, jojoba, sweet almond and coconut oil to name a few; these can last 6 months to a few years depending on how they are stored.
You can learn more about the benefits of essential oil aromatherapy by visiting the University of Maryland Medical Center’s medical reference guide:
You can benefit from essential oils both physically and emotionally via various methods including: Diffusing the oils, rub a few drops on your body, soles of your feet, placing drops on cotton balls and placing near you… and more.
Our personal favorites from doTerra are:
Blend for Women. It has a subtle scent, perfect for everyday use!
Focus Blend for Sergio (to help with his ADD), it helps with the ADD, and he smells so good too!
This is one we can not be without as it relieves migraines! I no longer take prescription drugs for migraines that have been around since I was 16, now I use peppermint oil on my temples, back of the neck and my hand (place it on your thumb down to the fatty portion, rub with gentle pressure for a few minutes- same for bottom of the feet, rub with pressure at the bottom of each toe). It helps awaken the senses and can increase the oxygen level in the blood just by being inhaled. It helps with focus, and when combined with rosemary, which helps with memory and retention, makes a winning work day combination. I sprinkle lots of it in our laundry room each winter to keep mice from entering our house (it is an old house and we have not been able to find where they come in from!)- the peppermint oil not only keeps them from entering, it keeps the whole house smelling fresh and invigorating -esp. nice during the *winter blues*!
A precious oil we love to keep in our medicine cabinet for scrapes, burns, and so much more! This oil will aid other oils to work at deeper levels to provide more healing. Frankincense has been studied for its ability to kill cancer cells, helps combat skin inflammation and rashes, and brings about focus and clarity.
For nasty pimples, bug bites, dandruff and most skin infections. Sinus infection? Place a few drops of tea tree oil in small saucepan of boiling water. Remove from heat and tent with a towel over your head. Breathe in for 10-15 minutes. This inhalation will loosen phlegm when you’re congested. See recipe below for air disinfectant too!
