We first started using dōTERRA oils a few years ago! Since then, they have become a HUGE part of our family’s daily routine. I have seen a huge improvement in our health since incorporating these. I will be the first to say that I am certainly no expert! Here are a few ways that we use them:
I use the Essential Skin Care Collection on my face twice a day – once in the morning before applying my make-up and once at night to take off my make-up. My skin is very sensitive, and this system does not irritate my skin. I also love the way it smells. The benefits of the oils in the system help hydrate my sensitive skin and supports a healthier complexion. Plus, I totally love that there isn’t anything harmful in the ingredients to my skin.
Another way I use essential oils is in my drinks. Every day I mix a few drops of Lemon oil in my water bottle before heading to work. I also mix the Wild Orange oil in my cup of hot tea every day. Both of these oil really help me to remain healthy even when I am surrounded by germs! If I feel a sore throat coming on, I throw in a few extra drops to help my Vitamin C dosage increase!
As a family, we also take dōTERRA vitamins every day. The kids take this vitamin every day! I hesitate to even say this….. but …. KNOCK ON WOOD…. they are rarely sick. Adults can also take this vitamin if they have trouble swallowing pills. It has the essential vitamins A, B, C, and E, supports healthy cell development, and really promotes healthiness! Brit and I take these vitamins every day and notice a huge difference if we forget. These vitamins really help give us more energy and support our metabolism. If you have been following for a while, you may remember the post where I shared my struggle with digestion. These vitamins have really helped get me back on track to feeling well.
EVERY night before bed, we all have a diffuser that is used to disperse oils into the air. Henry and Lucy have this one in their rooms. Brit and I use this one in our room. Depending on how we are feeling, the oils change. Most nights we include Lavender and Breathe. I love that the diffuser has a light on it! Perfect nightlight for the kids! Not only does it make our rooms smell peaceful before bed, but it also can really help keep us healthy!
Obviously, you can purchase each item individually through the website. But you can also purchase a $35 membership which would be similar to a Costco membership. Basically, you get everything at wholesale prices – 25% off every order for one year. Lastly, if you purchase an Enrollment Kit, your membership fee is waived and you also get the 25% off every order for one year.
I am a big believer in essential oils. While the prices may seem a little high at first, the overall health benefits are amazing. We have actually saved money over the years because of the lack of doctor appointments and not having to buy many medications! I am certainly not a medical professional. I am just sharing some things that have really helped our family!
I am sure many of you are making New Year’s resolutions this week! This is a great way to start taking care of you and your family!
