Essential Oils Changed my Life!

Essential Oils Changed my Life!

I started using doTERRA oils this past year when one of my friends knew I was having issues with insomnia and anxiety. She gave me some samples of Copaiba and Adaptiv to try. I loved the smell of them and after a couple days I started seeing results. I was using Copaiba under my tongue before bed to help with my insomnia and I took it during the day to help with my anxiety. I also used Adaptiv to help with my stress and anxious feelings. I can honestly say that doTERRA oils have changed my life!

Did you know you can ingest these oils?

After a week of using doTERRA oils I decided to get the Healthy Essentials Kit since it had both Copaiba and Adaptiv in it as well as so many other oils I was interested in. What I like about this kit is that it has so many oils that you can take internally: Lemon, Zengest, OnGuard, Peppermint, Lavender and Copaiba. This kit also has my favourite oil for pain relief; Deep Blue. This oil is like A535 but way better! My sister said it’s the only thing that has helped her severe back pain.

One of the reasons I chose doTERRA over the other oils out there is the fact that you can ingest so many of them. doTERRA oils are 100% pure and therapeutic grade. They are used by many doctors and practitioners to help treat patients naturally for their ailments. The quality of ingredients I use topically or internally are of great importance to me. I also like to know exactly what I’m putting in my body. Using essential oils to treat my families health issues aligns perfectly with my desire to live a more natural lifestyle.

Since using doTERRA oils my whole family has avoided having to use medication. I have treated an ear infection, insomnia, anxiety, the common cold, headaches, back pain, allergies, hives, a bee sting, and so much more. Using these oils have saved my family a few trips to the doctors office and saved us a lot of money.

I also love that they are are safe to use on children, while pregnant and nursing, and they are even safe to use around pets because of their 100% purity.
