Grapefruit Oil – A Healing Story by Brenda
My 16-year-old son got Mono last year and has had a very hard time recovering from it. His mood just went downhill from there and I just felt like he was depressed because he didn’t feel good. After I received my order of oils, he started smelling them and as soon as he smelled the grapefruit he couldn’t stop smelling it. He said it was his favorite and asked if I could put some in a little sample vile so he could smell it whenever he wanted. After he left the room I looked up what Grapefruit does and it is a natural anti-depressant. I never told him and his mood has improved dramatically!!! I guess it is true that you are drawn to what your body needs!

Deep Blue Oil – A Healing Story by Susan
Where to begin….it is hard to pick just one doTerra essential oil that has helped me or a family member over the past month. I think my favorite so far, is the Deep Blue. I am 45 years young and have always been an athlete – - playing sports in high school, running in 10ks, and becoming an avid tennis player later in life. All of this activity has not been easy on my body – - major back surgery at age 35, bouts of tennis elbow, early onset arthritis in my knees, and bursitis in my hips. But I never let it stop me; never let it sideline me. In the past, I would take Advil here and there. But no more!! I haven’t had an Advil in 4 weeks….I have been using Deep Blue rub anytime I get a flare up – - and it just goes away I recommend it to all of my friends and family. It is just incredible.

Geranium Oil – A Healing Story by Kala
Two weeks ago my husband cut two of his fingers to the bone with a razor blade. The injury occurred while he was at work at a medical facility and fortunately the head nurse was still on duty and she quickly cleaned the wound and wrapped it. She felt that he would surely need stitches. When he got home we immediately removed the bandages and treated both wounds with Helichrysum and OnGuard. The next morning we went in and he did need stitches on both fingers. We declined the prescription for antibiotics and continued to use the oils faithfully both morning and night. I also had him use Lemon essential oil on the bottoms of his feet to pull toxins. We were very concerned about infection and especially considering where he was when he injured himself and he would continue to be exposed at work. The stitched wounds did not develop any redness around them and his pain was minimal after the first two days. Ten days later he removed his own stitches and the wounds were completed healed. He did not develop any infection. I was impressed to have him begin using Geranium oil because during the doTerra convention Laura Jacobs taught us about all of its benefits and applications for the skin. After the first day we saw amazing results and the new skin over the wound was smooth and a healthy light pink. By the second day there was more healing and we were both astonished at how much better it looked. We only regret that we did not take pictures each step of the way. I absolutely know that the Helichrysum helped to close the wound and begin the healing process. The OnGuard helped him fight any infection and kept his immune system boosted during the process. The Lemon helped to pull toxins and the Geranium oil is encouraging the final healing. He looks forward to sharing this with the nurse that first attended to him!

Ylang Ylang Oil – A Healing Story by Annie
For over 15 years, I had been taking Propranolol, a medication to regulate my heart rate. Knowing that there is a long list of known side effects from taking this medication, I had been wanting to find an alternative way of managing my symptoms. I asked my Green Smoothie Girl Coach what she would recommend, and she said Ylang Ylang!
I apply 1 drop every night over my heart. I no longer am taking the Propranolol- it’s been several months now, and I am not experiencing any symptoms. So not only have I eliminated side effects of taking a prescription drug, I also fall asleep to the sweet aroma of Ylang Ylang!

Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Tammy
Living in the sunny and enchanted state of New Mexico, I’ve gotten a LOT of exposure to sun. I also have had small cancerous moles/spots on my skin. The dermatologist usually burned them off with some chemical that left me raw, red and tender for several days.
I now put Frankincense on my moles, spots and skin tabs and usually within 2 weeks they are gone or are back to normal.
I also get the same benefit on my face from the hydration cream since it has Frankincense as an ingredient.

Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Megan
Have you ever been on a long flight across the country and there is a baby who won’t stop shrieking? That is precisely what happened to me when I was headed to Portland last month. I tried to tune out the horrendous crying but the tension on the plane was growing, so I decided to grab my Lavender oil (calming, anti-anxiety) and head back to see if the mom was open to trying it. Upon approaching little 14-month-old Grace, I saw that she was bright red, kicking, screaming, and in full on temper-tantrum mode. Her poor mom had three other kids with her and looked completely frazzled. I asked if the baby had any allergies and the mom said “no,” so I explained that I had some organic, pure, high-quality Lavender oil that might help her calm down. The mom said “yes, I’ll try anything!” I put the oil on Grace’s feet and then let her inhale the scent and rubbed a bit on her chest. Her mom thanked me and then I walked to the rear of the plane to use the restroom while I was up. It took about 5 minutes to get through the line, but as I walked back to my seat I realized that it was QUIET! No more Grace screaming!! Furthermore, as I walked by the mom and that area of the plane, I received a round of applause from the nearby passengers because little Grace had fallen asleep. Now that is the awesome power of natural, healing plant-based medicine for everyday situations.

InTune Oil Blend – A Healing Story by Andrea
A good friend is in a high stress education program and was becoming overwhelmed by life. I have been able to help her sleep better and to increase her energy with doTerra products, but her story about an anxiety attack is one I would like to share. One day she was having a scary anxiety attack. She had event tried 2 Valium pills that had not helped her. Almost as a second thought, she applied In Tune to the bottom of her feet. Within minutes, her anxiety receded, her heart rate returned to normal and she was able to sleep. It was amazing to be able to share these products with her.

Serenity Oil Blend – A Healing Story by Tess
My husband has had trouble sleeping through the night for over a year. He had tried using Lavender oil before but it didn’t seem to help much. So I finally suggested that we start diffusing Serenity in the bedroom at night. We have been doing it for a few weeks now and he is sleeping much better and longer and wakes up more rested. So that is a great improvement! He is also more pleasant to live with.Quality sleep is invaluable for everyone.

DigestZen Oil Blend – A Healing Story by Andrea
I have frustrations with asthma. I have tried and had a lot of success with essential oils but it seems that the Digest Zen blend works better for me than anything else I’ve tried so far. I take a couple of drops and rub them on my chest and it is easier to breathe. I would be happy to talk to someone about options that could help with asthma.

Deep Blue Oil – A Healing Story by Andrea
I received this email from a lovely family member I had helped when she hurt her back:
I just wanted you to know that Deep Blue and Sandalwood have helped my back incredibly. Last night I was in despair. Your wonderful massage had helped me get through the night before last, and much of the day– by the end of the day I was in a lot of pain whatever I did. I slept, off and on, but every time I tried to turn in bed it was agony. It was not until early afternoon today I realized that there was some improvement. And when I got home I ran a hot bath, soaked for a long time, and then massaged Deep Blue into my lower back and put some sandalwood on my feet in the area you showed me that corresponds to the spine, and ever since then have felt so much more flexible and comfortable. As long as I keep being careful and keep applying the oils I think it will heal.
I can’t think of anything better than to help someone who is in pain to feel better.
