Melaleuca Oil – A Healing Story by Andrea
One of my sons had a frightening bicycle accident. He came in all scraped up and bleeding, but the worst part was that a chunk of skin was taken out of his chin. There was no point in taking him in for stitches because there was nothing there to stitch, so I turned to my oils. The first thing to do was to apply Melaleuca. I knew that this would stop infection from starting. I no longer use neosporin–I don’t want to put petrochemicals on my family any more. After applying the Melaleuca with a clean cotton ball, I then applied a mixture of Frankincense, Helichrysum and Lavender. I will be happy to share this recipe if someone wants it. My son only has a teeny scar now (from scratching at the scab!) There was no infection and his face with the worst wound, healed faster than his other injuries because we really focused on that area with our oils. I am incredibly thankful for doTerra oils.

Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Liz
I’m a mosquito magnet. If there’s a mosquito within a five-mile radius, it’s biting me. And I don’t react well to mosquito bites – they swell up and itch for weeks – I’m not kidding! (Well, maybe exaggerating a bit about the five miles, but not about the swelling and itching!). For years, I’ve had prescription steroid cream for these kinds (and others) of itchies. Well, the steroid cream just wasn’t cutting it the other day, so I whipped out my essential oils to try something different. One tiny drop of peppermint oil, and those nasties stopped itching all day long! No more torture! Yay!

Elevation Oil Blend – A Healing Story by Amy
Ya know how Monday mornings can feel overwhelming, like you’re never going to make it through the busy week? Then the covers get pulled over your head once more, and that pesky snooze button gets hit yet again. You need Elevation oil! Oh, the Elevation oil is amazing! Besides it being a great oil on the nightstand for mornings, I also carry it in my doTerra key chain and use it if I “get in a mood”, am moody or sad for some reason. A drop of Elevation on the back of my neck and a few good whiffs from my fingers, and my mood almost instantly lifts. It has a wonderful flowery/sweet scent and is very pleasant. It is a staple oil and I always make sure my bottle has some left in it. Highly recommended!

Solace Oil Blend – A Healing Story by Rebecca
This oil has been very helpful to a young lady reaching puberty. As most of us know this is a challenging time. One of the monthly issues is sore breasts. This young girl told me she rolled Solace around her breasts for the pain. I was a little taken back by her action. No one told her to do this, she thought of it all on her own. She said within minutes they no longer hurt. I am so glad she was not afraid to share what she had done. Of course, I needed to know for myself, so when that time was about to arrive, I tried it. Yes, it sure does work. Thanks to this sweet young lady for her brave testimony.

Wild Orange Oil – A Healing Story by Karen
I woke up one morning with a bit of a rapid heart rate, not extremely fast, but much more than my usual baseline rate of 60′s. It didn’t go away as I got ready for work, and since I wasn’t anxious about anything, it concerned me. I knew, as an RN that if it continued or got worse, I might have to go to the ER to have it checked out. I consulted my Modern Essentials book about tachycardia, and I had 2 of the oils recommended – Wild Orange and Lavender. I rubbed them on my chest directly, and the other points recommended. Within 2 minutes my heart rate was back to normal, and it didn’t happen again! What a relief! I am so excited about these oils and how they are going to change people’s lives……

Roman Chamomile Oil – A Healing Story by Rebecca
Wow! I was at my family reunion yesterday (7/28/13) and my cousin’s 5-year-old son was stung by a bee. It was his first bee encounter. No bee sting is good but this one was on his face near his ear. Yikes! My 15-year-old son was playing baseball with him at the time and told him he needed to get help. My son is allergic to bees (double yikes) and knows it is important to seek treatment right away. They came to me first and I alerted his mother. She did not know what to do, but I did. Out came the Roman Chamomile Oil. As soon as I opened the oil he said, that smells great! Yeah, he’s hooked already. By this time his face was itchy, red and swollen. I placed a drop on my finger and rubbed it on his face. With in minutes he was back playing ball. About 15 minutes later he came back to me an asked for more because it was itchy. I applied another small drop to the area and noticed it was no longer red but you could see the small poke. He again said, that smell great! Off he went and yet again he came back and asked for more. By this time it was no longer itching, red or could you see the small poke. No one could believe it. I was so happy to be of help, especially to a 5-year-old.

Melaleuca Oil – A Healing Story by Laura
My daughter and her best friend’s family went on a trip this summer to Georgia. A few weeks before the trip, my daughter’s friend had her belly button pierced. While on the trip she was swimming in a public pool along with tubing in a river. She came home with an infected belly button. Her mother, who is a non-believer in the oils, was going to take her to the doctor the next day. I asked her to come over so I could put some oil on the area. I used one drop of Melaleuca on the infected area. The next morning, all of the puss and redness were gone. Her mother even asked me what else she could use the oil for!

Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Tammy
I have experienced (some may say suffer) post-partum and anti-partum depression/mood disorders several times. The moment I thought I might be pregnant with my most recent child I began my quest for a natural solution to this disorder. I had heard that essential oils can be a powerful tool for improving emotional well-being. I wanted to find out more so I searched the internet for “essential oils for postpartum depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder”. From that search I learned that Lavender essential oil, when smelled, can greatly boost one’s emotional well-being.
I like to know a little about how and why things work the way they do – especially something as seemingly simple and “unconventional” as essential oils. So, I did further research. I found that on emotional level Lavender oil is known as the “oil of communication”. It helps calm insecurities while relieving negative emotions such as feelings of being unlovable and unimportant. Lavender helps in giving one the courage to communicate their innermost thoughts and feelings.
Something to note about using essentials aromatically……We have what is called a limbic systemlimbic system which is the part of our brain that houses our emotions and memories. When an essential oil is inhaled those aromatic molecules go straight into the limbic system thus, producing an immediate emotional response. That is why smelling Lavender is effective in elevating negative mood states; it produces an immediate and positive emotional response.
With this new-found knowledge I used Lavender oil throughout the pregnancy. I’ll tell you, in struggling from post-partum depression I am grateful for a natural tool to help me communicate and feel loved – because isn’t that at least a part of what most experience when they are depressed? Feelings of being unloved and struggling with the inability to communicate those feelings – either out of fear or apathy?

Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Tess
My niece got pink eye and was ready to go to urgent care to get some meds for it. I told her she could use my Lavender and Melaleuca essential oils. She put some of each on her eye sockets right under each eye for three days, and the pink eye disappeared. So much for urgent care and spending money on prescription drugs!

Serenity Oil Blend – A Healing Story by Tess
My sister-in-law has sleep apnea and sleeps with a CPAP machine. She also has anxiety issues and recently developed heart arrhythmia. I suggested that she use a drop of Serenity in her CPAP machine every night. She tried it for three days and said she slept better, felt calmer and ordered her own bottle of Serenity because she could really tell the difference in her sleep and anxiety.
