Now I use them for everything and I would never go back!
I started using doterra oils for pain relief in the beginning and was in amazement at how quickly and efficiently they work for all your aches and pains and now I use them for everything and I would never go back!

I haven’t slept since my kids were born and they are 31 and 28… the one oil that has made the most impact is Vetiver.
I have used essential oils for many years but was looking for high quality oils that could be ingested when you introduced me to doTerra. I make homemade gummy bears for the littles in my life and use lemon, lime, wild orange and others for flavours. Throughout the day I probably use 8 – 10 different oils for many different things but the one oil that has made the most impact is Vetiver. I have terrible insomnia, I would often say that I haven’t slept since my kids were born and they are 31 and 28!! I have a roller bottle with vetiver and coconut oil on my night table and apply to the bottoms of my feet nightly. I now get at least 6 hours of sleep in and sometimes 7 or 8! For years I was sleeping 4 or 5 hours a night!
I’ve noticed a great change in my family’s physical and emotional health.
I first wanted oils just to make my house smell better. But after getting my kit, and trying different DIYs, I’ve noticed a great change in my family’s physical and emotional health. My eldest daughter uses them in her facial cleanser, we choose different blends for the diffuser depending on our moods, and I spray lavender, cedarwood and bergamot on my toddlers sheets at night. The wow moment was when my youngest was sobbing about a sore tummy – I rubbed some diluted Zengest on her tummy, and within minutes she was giggling in the backyard. I’m in love with these oils.
Wow what a difference it made from previous years with 2 children and with our jobs dealing with the public.
January this year I bought my home essentials kit from Christine. I wanted to start a new way of living a healthier one, I want my children to have the best chance they can get. Ryder needed help with his extreme eczema which he’s had since birth and Levi with his chronic pain. I need help with my emotions and stress and more…… I started using Doterra’s oils during our last flu season, Wow what a difference it made from previous years with 2 children and with our jobs dealing with the public. GERMS – Using the DIY flu bomb in veggie caps for levi and I and roller bottle for the kids and peppermint on our spines with fevers. It was amazing to know we weren’t putting synthetics into our bodies ever again. The list goes on about what alignments Doterra oils can do for everyone. I make our own laundry detergent, hand wash, eczema lotion, hand lotion and next is dishwasher tabs… and it won’t end there. I also found about the amazing business opportunity too which I will be starting next month!!!! I’ve been working 2 jobs, 6 days a week and up to 14 hours a day and having a family of four with 2 dogs and a new adopted cat and lizards. I also have moved 3 people and helped clean, paint and lift lots of heavy stuff in the last 2 months. EXHAUSTED to say the least!!! But I know that using my oils for my pulled muscles in my arm using deep blue rub and the stress using my mixture of balance, peace and frankincense. And all the other ones in my purse there are 8 in total that I use plus LLV twice a day at least once a day have got me through this crazy 8 months. So that’s most of my story but I just wanted to add that Doterra essential oils will forever be in my life and I am so great full to begin my journey with all of you.
Digest Zen changed my world when it came to dealing with colitis flare ups.
I also initially bought into them to make my house smell good. Although I still love using them in my diffusers every day, it’s gone far beyond a scent. I extended to diffusing Balance and/or lavender in my kindergarten classroom to achieve different environments. Digest Zen changed my world when it came to dealing with colitis flare ups. I couldn’t live without the stuff! If I explained all of the different ways I used oils daily, I would take up a lot of space on this thread. Using them in pregnancy has been a great and educational experience. I started out by being scared to use them, to feeling confident with using certain ones during pregnancy and knowing automatically which ones to avoid (am so excited to buy clary sage as soon as I’ve delivered). It also helps to have someone like yourself who lives these oils and demonstrates through personal passion (and not just to make a few bucks on the side like so many MLM businesses out there) just how they can incorporate into one’s life.
I start my day off with a drop of lemon in my water, frankincense in my face cream, easy air in the diffuser, lavender at bedtime.
I first tried essential oils when my son was about 8 months old, my friend made me a balance roller as I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and stressed out with my boyfriend working out of town since Jaxson was born. It was a lot to deal with being a new mom and basically on our own. It helped calm me down and get things done. To this day I use balance everyday and just received whisper in the mail so will add that to my balance roller. After this I have purchased many oils and start my day off with a drop of lemon in my water, frankincense in my face cream, easy air in the diffuser, lavender at bedtime. The uses can really go on. Im very grateful to have been introduced to this world. I will be experimenting with DIY soaps next!
