Deep Blue Oil – A Healing Story by Lucinda
Deep Blue oil blend really rescued my poor 11 month old baby when his finger was smashed flat in a door jamb. At the sight of his finger, I started shaking and of course he was screaming. I held him on my lap and within seconds of it happening, began layering oils, starting with Deep Blue, because I knew he was in serious pain and I knew that the blend had Helichrysum, which is beneficial for bones and skin.
I also used Frankincense, Lemongrass and Lavender all for different reasons including tissue trauma, inflammation and bruising, but kept going back to the Deep Blue blend every few minutes. I layered oils until he was calm enough to go in a car seat.
The next day I was surprised to see absolutely no bruising on the top of his finger where I layered the oils and the underside of his finger was very swollen and bruised. After layering the same oils on that side of the finger the bruising was gone 2 days later! This experience was so amazing and also a good reminder to never go anywhere without a handful of emergency essential oils!

Purify Oil Blend – A Healing Story by Lucinda
I was not happy to find that my very old, blind-in-one-eye cat peed on a pile of my laundry that was near his litter box! I added a few drops of Purify oil blend to a very hot wash cycle and that stubborn smell was gone! More importantly because that blend has antibacterial, antiparasitic, and antiseptic properties, I knew that my laundry was beyond surface clean and I could feel safe wearing it! Phew! Purify saved one of his nine lives!!

Serenity Oil Blend – A Healing Story by Lucinda
On a long road trip with our 4 children my husband was loading up the kids for the next long drive while I was working at a Medicine Cabinet Makeover class in the hotel. I texted him to let him know the class was over and I was coming out to the parking lot. He didn’t text back but as soon as the lobby doors opened I just had to follow the noise. The two babies were screaming and the two older boys were fighting. I grabbed the 3 month old to comfort him but he would not calm down which is very unusual for him, so I grabbed the Serenity blend and massaged it on his spine. Then I instructed my husband to apply it to the 2 year old and also made the older boys breathe it in and put drops on the back of their necks. In under two minutes we had peace and calm and as soon as we hit the road, the babies were asleep. The stressful event dissipated within minutes! The smell alone is very calming. I love Serenity!

Oregano Oil – A Healing Story by Lucinda
I had just learned about essential oils and remembered at the class learning that Oregano oil will heal a case of mastitis [nursing moms' breast infection]. I woke up one morning with a fever and pain and I applied oregano directly on my skin! Ouch! I learned first hand that it is a “hot” oil and that when you are new to using essential oils, getting educated is important! Luckily I only felt a temporary burning feeling and because I caught the infection right at the start of it, it went away quickly!

Peppermint Oil – A Healing Story by Donna
Peppermint was the first oil I shared with a client of mine who had completely plugged sinuses. During the third “aromatic” experience via “Cupping” his sinuses cleared and he was absolutely amazed!! He purchased that bottle on the spot.
I used peppermint while exercising to open up my airways and it helps perk up my energy during long workouts.

Oregano Oil – A Healing Story by Andrea
For as long as I can remember, my husband has suffered from chronic sinus infections. Every spring, every summer. He would feel them coming on and we would adjust all sorts of things to help his body fight–up the water consumption, up the greens, eliminate sugar, add probiotics. All of those adjustments would seem to help for a while and then the infection would hit him hard enough that he couldn’t wait any more. Off he would go to the doctor’s office, dreading the antibiotics and the upset stomachs.
These infections would rarely be knocked out by one round of meds, so he would go back two, sometimes three times, frustrated with it not working, frustrated with the awful reaction his stomach had to antibiotics and frustrated with the cost of all those visits. I think the worst part of all this was the sense of having no control over what was happening. What could he do to avoid these? Every time he would see a doctor or PA, he would ask that question and never get any advice. It was like it was all a mystery.
About a year ago, I was introduced to essential oils after one of Robyn’s classes. I used them to help me get over insomnia, to add pep to my morning cup of tea, to add new, healthy flavors to my green smoothies. I began to learn about oils that would help our bodies fight sinus infections.
This time when my husband felt an infection coming on we did not wait. We began to give him capsules of oregano and 2-3 other oils two times a day, one with breakfast and one with supper. Since his sinuses seem to have a time getting cleared, we kept this up for 10-14 days and then tapered off to 1 capsule a day for a few additional days.
What happened? His infection went away! What about side effects? His dry skin along his hair line also went away! We laughed at what a great alternative that was to an upset stomach. Now, when he feels any twinge in his sinuses, he treats it immediately and hasn’t had to do such an extended treatment. These oils have given him a sense of empowerment over his health that he struggled with for so long. What a blessing these oils have been.

Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Katie
My little dog Fluffy got really sick tonight for some unknown reason! He was panting really hard, his little bug eyes were really bugging out, and he was furiously rubbing his head on the ground! Then he vomited up a bunch of white goo! Totally scary, so I treated him with Lavender on his paws and face to calm him down, and gave him peppermint in water for his upset stomach. Then I diffused Serenity for him. It totally worked and he was better within 30 minutes! I love doTerra oils!

Melaleuca Oil – A Healing Story by Brittany
I used to get cold sores all the time and had no good way of treating them. Nothing seemed to work and I was spending a lot of money to “try” and get rid of them. Then I started putting a drop of Melaleuca and Melissa Oil on when I felt a cold sore start and I don’t have a problem anymore! All I ever really need is 1-2 drops applied a few times. No more embarrassing lips and no more expensive white creams on my lips.

Purify Oil Blend – A Healing Story by Brittany
I had a Urinary Tract Infection starting and it was Friday night! I really didn’t want to pay the bill for insta-care and so I went to my Modern Essentials Book.
I did as it said, “put several drops of Purify on the lower abdomen.” I went to bed that night smelling very clean!
The next morning I was almost completely out of pain and with just a few more applications the pain was totally gone and hasn’t come back. I was amazed.
