A few months ago, I made the decision to join DoTerra Essential Oils as a Wellness Advocate. My intent of this post is not to push these products on you or pull you into the DoTerra business. I do however want to share my reasons and my experience with the company and essential oils. As with most things in my life, if I have a passion or love for something I want to spread and share it with others.
I’ve always been interested in the benefits of essential oils. In general, I do not like the idea of taking medication. I try to find another option first before I reach for the medicine bottle. Lately, with the demands of motherhood, my day job, photography and life in general, it’s been hard to stay centered. It’s been difficult to clear my mind. On top of that, my kids are constantly getting sick. My daughter has asthma and is starting to depend more on her inhaler.
Because of that, I wanted to find alternative ways to find relief. Not a cure, just another option to use before reaching for medication. I spoke with several people on their experiences with DoTerra oils and thought I’d give it a try.
More than I expected
My experience was more than I expected. My AromaTouch + Diffuser Box came in which included Meleleuca, Lavender, Peppermint and Wild Orange. It also included DoTerra’s Signature blends like OnGuard, Balance, Deep Blue and Aroma Touch. That night, I immediately diffused the Lavender next to my daughter’s bedside and applied them on her pulse points. She was having night terrors over the past few months and I was hoping they would help her sleep calmly. It was the best sleep she had in months, which meant I was sleeping well too.
Over the course of the next few weeks, I added more oils to my stash. I used Peppermint to help with headaches. Deep Blue was added to my gym bag for pre and post workout relief. Passion, a particular favorite, is always on hand to help me center my thoughts and focus on a task on hand.
Before I knew it, my essential oils were making it’s way into every aspect of my life. My experience far exceeded my expectations.
A Positive Influence
To say that essential oils have been a positive influence is an under statement. I’ve made more conscious choices about what I eat on a daily basis. As I pay more attention to what I’m putting in my body, to stay healthy from the inside out, I’m also working hard to stay centered and focused. The grounding oils (Cedarwood, Clove, Vetiver) help me find balance. The citrus oils brighten my day and help me face the day with renewed purpose.
Overall, I feel so much more grounded. I’m more keenly aware of what’s important. My tolerance and patience are so vastly improved because I’ve learned to focus on positive & healthy living. Toxins are everywhere around us but that doesn’t mean it has to be toxic to my life.
In the process, I’ve become a part of a wonderful, beautiful community that support, encourages and helps each other. Not just to promote DoTerra oils, but to promote wellness. Essential living at it’s best. I’ve meet such beautiful, happy souls who not only share their passion for DoTerra but seize life with positivity and energy. It’s a very uplifting community to be a part of.
