Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Stacy
I recently mixed up a blend of Frankincense, Lavender, and Lemon oils in a roller bottle and I use it for my deodorant. Not only am I supporting my immune system, but I am also killing bacteria and smelling fab!
Purify Oil Blend – A Healing Story by Tammy
I love to swim! What I don’t love, however, is the lingering smell and damage from the chlorine.
We all know chlorine is in the water to sanitize, oxidize and prevent strange, often slimy organisms from growing in the water. We also all know that chlorine can wreak havoc on us if we are not careful. Over exposure has been linked to cancer, respiratory problems and hormonal changes; among other things. Ever seen anybody with brittle, dried up blue/green hair? I have. Ewwwwww!
Having that in mind I have a routine for detoxifying after a swim or being otherwise exposed to chlorine. Remember to give your body the nutrients it needs and stay hydrated so it is able to detoxify at its peak.
So, having said that #1 – I wash my hair with a homemade shampoo with Lavender Oil added to it. If you don’t want to make your own shampoo doTERRA makes a nice one.
Now, it’s counterproductive to use chemicals on your body when you are trying to get chemicals off of your body, so, #2 is a nice soak in a tub full of Epsom salts and lavender. The salts are full of minerals that draw the toxins out.
#3 After bathing and drying off I lather my skin in a natural lotion with a few added drops of Purify Oil Blend. The lotion helps the Purify Oil Blend spread over the skin nicely so the it can do it’s job of removing the chlorine throughout the cells in my body.
So in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and doing this routine after I swim, hopefully I can maintain my nice normal colored hair, soft skin and healthy body, and you can too!
Balance Oil Blend – A Healing Story by Brandi
I recently had to be in a meeting which I knew would be stressful and would cause anxiety. I happened to be the first one there and decided to apply both Balance Oil and Lavender Oil to my feet…what a blessing. I was able to remain surprisingly calm throughout the meeting as I watched one other person get more and more wound up. (I sincerely felt bad for this person since the intent of the meeting was not to make feelings worse)
I knew for sure just how helpful the oils had been as the meeting came to a close and I could feel the benefits wearing off. (almost 2 hours later)
I was truly thankful for the last-minute thought to use the oils before everyone came into the room.
Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Tessa
After 2 full days/nights of a 102.5 fever and ’round the clock Tylenol and ibuprofen, I decided to grab my oils (wish I would have sooner)! At 2am, the ibuprofen wore off and my youngest daughter’s (14 months old) fever returned AGAIN! I was fed up, so I grabbed the Lavender and some FCO and applied to the back of her neck and bottom of feet and within 5 minutes she was already cooler to the touch and drifted back to sleep. And the fever never returned!!! AMAZING!!! As I wrote earlier, I wish I would have used the oils sooner!
Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Linda
I burned my forehead with a curling iron and applied Lavender oil on it right away. After about 5 minutes I re-applied and the pain was gone plus I never developed a scar!
Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Tammy
I zyto scan my children on a fairly regular basis – every three months or so. I like to keep their chemistry in balance. Their body chemistry, like everyone else’s, is constantly changing.
For my oldest son lavender was the only oil that came up this particular time. On an emotional level lavender is the “oil of communication”. In the few weeks before scanning him I noticed that he didn’t allow me to take his picture anymore, and he used to be a professional model – so that didn’t make sense. He was acting strange in that he didn’t want to be seen and would actually hide. He seemed to be feeling very insecure. Perhaps it’s just something 10 year olds go through? I don’t know. Anyway, on an emotional level lavender is helpful in calming insecurities. It helps one heal from their deep fear of being seen and heard. It’s for those who are afraid to express who they really are.
Nailed it! That was my son at that time. I applied the oil to him daily for a few weeks and his insecurities seemed to have left him, for a time. It’s been a few months now and those insecurities are creeping back. Time for more lavender.
Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Tess
My college age son moved home this summer and works at a golf course. He has been congested and has a runny nose that makes him sniff all the time. I started giving him a clear veggie capsule with three drops of lemon, three drops of lavender and three drops of peppermint several times a day to counter his allergic reaction and it has cleared it right up. If it starts up again, he just asks me for another capsule!
Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Tess
I was on a weekend retreat and my roommate burned her finger on her curling iron. I got out my Lavender oil and put it on her finger. Two minutes later the pain was gone!
Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Angela
My family went over to a friend’s house for a BBQ at the beginning of the summer. We were all enjoying our delicious meal when our host came over and complained that he burned his finger on the grill. He and his wife have been learning about essential oils so I told him there’s an oil for that burn… I went and grabbed my travel case of oils and had him dab some Lavender on his burn. A few minutes later I asked him how his burn was, and he said it didn’t hurt at all and that he and his wife need to bring the oils with them wherever they go.
Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Jamila
Today I gave a massage to a client that has been worn down by a lifetime of health problems including obesity and diabetes which has now been exacerbated by pharmaceuticals for high blood pressure and back pain, etc…She truly wants to make changes and is drinking green smoothies and beginning to use doTERRA’s oils. Today she experienced a quality of emotional release and hopefulness, peace and calm from her lavender oil massage. She called me and told me that she is feeling newly motivated to keep on making the changes she needs to for her health!
