Grapefruit Oil – A Healing Story by Annie
Recently I took the Zyto Scan with Dr. Mariza Snyder, my GreenSmoothieGirl Health Coach. The scan is a bio-feedback tool which revealed that doTerra Grapefruit Oil was my #1 oil for addressing my digestive and weight loss concerns. I have been drinking Green Smoothies daily for several months and have recently begun adding 1-2 drops of doTerra Grapefruit Oil to my smoothies. I love how the Grapefruit Oil gives my smoothie a bright taste! I’ve also learned that Grapefruit oil aids the immune system, lymphatic systems, and is very powerful as an antidepressant.
I have also been alternating adding 1-2 drops of Lemon Oil, Peppermint Oil, Grapefruit Oil and Slim & Sassy Oil to my drinking water. The result has been that I am drinking a lot more (filtered) water, because it tastes so refreshing. I also feel great that I am getting the benefits of those oils! (I also pour the ‘oiled’ water into my dog’s water bowl, so he benefits too!) As summer approaches with warmer days, drinking refreshing water is key!

Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Brandi
For a very long time I had problems sleeping at night. I could fall asleep pretty well, but I would wake up and not be able to go back to sleep (often for hours) I would toss and turn until finally sometimes I would just get up and go do something. My husband works in an Urgent care office and came home one day and said “We had a drug rep come into the office today with a sleep aid that sounds like it’s just what you need…it’s for people who can go to sleep but wake up later.” I laughed. And laughed again. And then I told him he was NUTS. Of ALL the medications with a potential for addictions (in my mind) it was sleeping pills.
Then I went to Robyn’s class and the follow up Medicine Cabinet Makeover Class where they talked about the possibility of doTERRA’s Lavender oil helping you sleep…I was sold! I was willing to try it because it was better than a prescription and easy to do. It has helped SIGNIFICANTLY and I would highly recommend it!

Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Annie
I am a light sleeper and have always had trouble getting a good night’s sleep. Recently I have begun putting 1 drop of lavender on my temples and inhaling the oil left on my hands, right before I go to sleep. At bedtime, I also spread 1 drop of doTerra Ylang Ylang on my heart (to help with an irregular heart beat), which when used topically it is a gentle oil, and is often used in calming blends. I have slept really well since I started using my oils. So many of my friends have sleep issues, and based on my experience of using Lavender Oil, I am confident in recommending it to them.

On Guard Oil Blend – A Healing Story by Annie
A simple story: doTerra On Guard is such a versatile oil! This blend addresses Bacteria Immune system support, mold, topical disinfectant, and virus. I keep a ‘shot glass’ at my bathroom sink, put a small amount of water in it and 1-2 drops of On Guard, and gargle and swish once in the morning and once at night to insure a clean and healthy mouth. I feel good that I am being proactive about my oral hygiene, thus my overall health!

DigestZen Oil Blend – A Healing Story by Karen
My family was vacationing in Disney World a few months ago when the stomach flu was running rampant. We saw those kitty litter piles everywhere around the park covering where some unfortunate person had gotten sick. And even talking to people on the buses and around the parks that had been sick and ruined their vacation.
Lucky for me I had 2 fantastic oils that I brought with me- On Guard that I blended in a spray bottle with fractionated coconut oil that we used all day to clean our hands from germs and DigestZen that saved my son from the stomach flu. We were out one night and my son started to feel sick to his stomach, he got pale and that cold sweat started – I knew it was coming, I had seen that look before.
So I gave him 2 drops of digestZen in water and had him drink it down then about 15 minutes later rubbed it directly on his stomach. My husband took him back to the hotel while my daughter and I stayed and played in the park and when we got home he was sitting up as chipper and normal as can be. He never threw up and remained healthy the rest of the trip!
So thankful for the oils and I will never go anywhere without them.

Breathe Oil Blend – A Healing Story by Robyn
This is the oil I use most often. Running a growing company, speaking in 60 cities annually, plus a worldwide research tour, and raising four kids by myself, sometimes I get a little…..stressed.
Breathe is my tonic! I’m actually a little bit addicted—the eucalyptus in it, not too much, is like catnip to me. I have a bottle of Breathe in my car, in my purse, in my infrared sauna, next to my desk, and my son has a bottle next to his phone at work, where he fields angry customers’ calls. His co-workers ask to share it when they take a stressful call.
This is my challenge for you. Open the bottle. Take six deep breaths, the deepest you possibly can, slowly. Inhaling the aromas of the eucalyptus, peppermint, and other oils in this blend through your nose. See if it doesn’t immediately calm you down, and open wide your respiratory system. I literally feel like my shoulders have been pulled back an inch, and I’m now open to the world, calm and positive.
Our limbic system responds to molecules of stimulating medicine. But another thing you do as you adopt this habit, anytime you’re feeling tight in the chest, or stressed out, is also psychologically train yourself to think and understand: this is the practice whereby I relax and open up, and breathe. You don’t even have to consciously have this thought. Your psyche will do this for you subconsciously, with the help of the oils, as you simply perform this six-breath technique every day.
Remember, oxygenating the body reduces our disease risk. Everyone should take six very deep, slow breaths several times a day anyway! Now we add to that habit some lovely-smelling medicinal aromatics that have been used for thousands of years for proper breathing.
This is also a great oil blend to diffuse at night, to help children breathe if they have a cough, or allergies, and to purify the air.

Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Rebecca
“When in doubt, use Frankincense!” is a phrase commonly heard among veteran essential oils users and it is one that I have often repeated. And I say this for a reason. Recently, while I was traveling to So. California I woke up in the middle of the night with a tremendous pain in my chest. It felt like I had swallowed a huge pill and it was going down slowly and sideways although I knew that wasn’t it I had no idea what was wrong with me.
I also knew that I had a large training to conduct the next day and I had to be well rested and in tip-top form. So, at 3 am I wasn’t inclined to research what was wrong and what to use. Rather, I had NO DOUBT as I reached for my Frankincense oil and immediately applied it to my chest and put a few drops under my tongue. I then inhaled the essence left on my hands and went back to bed.
Within minutes the pain had subsided and I was able to go back to sleep with ease. There really is a reason that Frankincense is the “King of Oils.”

On Guard Oil Blend – A Healing Story by Robyn
I think this is the most VALUABLE oil blend in my arsenal. Every time one of my kids gets even a sniffle, they know to immediately put 1-2 drops of On Guard on the back of their hand, and lick it off. I tell them to do this every 1-2 hours.
I attended the 2012 doTERRA convention and watched a presentation of a microbiologist showing a year’s worth of petri dish studies. She filled petri dishes with MRSA, which is a terrifying strain of antibiotic-resistant bacterial infection that kills the elderly and weak, primarily in hospitals where it flourishes. Medicine doesn’t know what to do with it. Vancomycin is the antibiotic they use, and the microbiologist showed that it killed only 60-70 percent of the MRSA bacteria grown in the petri dishes. The remaining 30% could still kill you!
On Guard, however, killed 100% of the MRSA bacteria! Over and over, in repeated experiments. The highest effectiveness was 1-2 drops. (Effectiveness actually decreased with 5 drops.) So I tell my children, use small amounts, more often.
I was traveling with Coach Jeanette recently and was complaining about the infection I got on my toe in a salon pedicure. I was going out for a run, and every morning that five miles on the pavement while I was on speaking tour in California was excruciating. My toe was red, swollen, and throbbing. I thought it was an ingrown toenail, so I never thought to use On Guard. But Coach Jeanette brought hers to me and demanded I put it on my toe. I put one drop on it and went to bed.
When I woke up in the morning, the redness and swelling was GONE. The infection never returned. One application only.
On Guard is an AMAZING tool for a thousand anti-viral, anti-bacterial uses. I would not be without it. Every one of my children has their own bottle so they can put it to immediate use if I’m out of town (which is a lot).

Wild Orange Oil – A Healing Story by Robyn
This is the face that launched a thousand ships. That is, someone left a Wild Orange oil behind when I was traveling, and I began to use it. I was instantly HOOKED. Addicted. First of all, the aroma of this oil is absolutely captivating. It’s one of those oils that, based on your biochemistry’s needs, which are highly dynamic, can be calming or energizing. I wrote a GSG reader on facebook I could see sold doTERRA and asked her to just sell me more, retail.
I began using Wild Orange over my heart, and on my forehead, right before bed. It became a habit, almost an addiction. I went right to sleep, peacefully.
Then I started putting it in green smoothies, and like Coach Mariza says, it transformed them into Orange Julius! YUM! When I get a little wild with smoothies, adding things like fennel, my kids say, “HMMMM”…..but EVERYONE loves a drop or two of this oil in their smoothie.
The perfect marriage of plant-based nutrition, and plant-based medicine. This got me to thinking about doTERRA, essential oils, and the fit with the main GreenSmoothieGirl mission (a better life through spectacular nutrition).
The rest is history. Eight months later thousands of GreenSmoothieGirl readers have joined us to share these clean, pure, essential oils from all over the globe as solutions to our families’ needs. As a way out of the drug approach to health.
It all started here, with a bottle of Wild Orange.
