Essential oils - What they mean to me
My daughter, who was going into 6th grade at the time, came downstairs the day before school started that year and said, “My throat hurts again!”
During her 5th grade year, she had come down with a certain BAD throat situation three times that year. (I cannot name the throat issue due to FDA regulations, but what you’re thinking is probably correct!)
And, here we were again. Uggggg.
Each time, she was out of school for three days and went through rounds of antibiotics. She was caught in a cycle and couldn’t break free because her immune system was weak and compromised (due to the overuse of antibiotics).
I was at the end of my mama rope and knew things needed to change.
That’s what sent me into the world of essential oils.
In my holistic health circles, I was hearing how effective essential oils were, but I was skeptical. I had never even opened a bottle of essential oil before.
However, I was willing to try anything at that time to break the cycle my daughter was in, strengthen her immune system, and have something natural to give her if/when her body/throat came under attack again.
So, I dove in.
Did some research on various oils and companies. Fell in love with doTERRA and connected with their mission and vision. Loved the quality of oils they offered and their third-party quality control testing.
Ordered some oils. Started using them…
And, I was hooked.
That was over 6 years ago and we haven’t looked back.
Now my oldest is heading off to college and I’m sending her with her very own arsenal of essential oils (and a diffuser, of course!). My youngest daughter (10 years old) also loves oils and knows exactly which oils to use to support her body’s needs. I think that’s awesome! Her favorite is DigestZen for digestive support.
I love having these little bottles of God’s goodness in my home and we love incorporating them into our daily lives. We use them aromatically, topically, and even internally (safely!).
Essential oils support all systems of the body, including the immune, respiratory, digestive, endocrine, and muscular systems.
