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!

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!

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!
Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Andrea
When my oldest son was about five years old, he started having dry hands when winter would start. I really didn’t think too much about it and cream seemed to help them feel better by the next morning. That seemed to be the pattern for two or three years.
About two years ago, the dryness began to get worse. His hands weren’t just dry, they were red and painful. Sometimes they would crack and bleed. I ended up having to speak to a doctor about it and she prescribed a cream that included a steroid. This worried me. I would certainly prefer to not put steroids on my child’s skin! His hands hurt, though, so we did try it. The first time we used that cream, it worked. But then it didn’t. In fact, it worked for only a couple of days.
By this time, my son was putting cream on morning and night and carrying a bottle with him in his book bag. We tried cream with the steroid, cream without the steroid, almond oil, more olive oil in his diet. In the meantime, we were told that he had eczema, but were not told of anything that would help. With steroids being in the news so much lately, I have since learned that prolonged steroid use can cause immune suppression and increase the risk of bone fractures. I can’t take back the use of the steroid cream, but I can look for alternatives.
This past summer was the first time that his dry hands did not ease up for the warm weather. All summer we were working with the creams but it seemed that his hands looked worse. They were red from the knuckle area to just above his wrists. The skin was warm and very dry to the touch. It got to the point where they felt scaly to me and that was pretty scary. This is not what a person’s hands should feel like, much less a little boy’s hands.
Now, though, after going to a Green Smoothie Girl nutrition class in Raleigh, I had some new ideas that I could incorporate when thinking about helping these terrible, dry hands. I began rotating several different doTERRA essential oils mixed with almond oil so they would spread more easily.
By the first morning, his hands began to look better. The redness began to recede first. His hands started to show softness that had not been there before. On the third day, he came to me and commented that when he had used the creams, they always burned for a while after he applied them. The essential oils and the almond oil, though, didn’t burn at all. It hurt me to hear that the cream had burned him each time, but I felt so good thinking that these new oils we were trying were working and feeling good on his skin.
It has now been several months on this new regime. We used many oils to get hands to a place of healing and now he uses a little lavender each night.
I know that these oils have helped his skin, boosted his immunity, hopefully counteracting any damage that came from the steroid cream, and that the lavender has an added benefit of helping him to relax at night. The sense of relief I feel in the positive “side effects” instead of the worry about the steroid cream and other creams that didn’t help him any way, is immense. I feel a lot of gratitude in finding doTERRA’s essential oils to treat my son’s eczema.
I would love to share, with you, the protocol we used to get my son’s hands looking normal!
Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Juan
Lavender has been amazing for sleep. One drop on the pillow at bedtime is all I need for those nights I have trouble falling asleep. I wake up feeling rested and renewed–without the side effects of over-the counter sleep aids.
