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.
