We have been working with doTerra for the past couple of months and really have fallen in love with the oils. They have had such an impact in our homes that we wanted to put together some of our favorites that all Moms should have on hand. We even have an epic giveaway below that is valued at over $300! Here is a list of our faves and a little more about our top 4 that never leave our sides.
If you have used doTERRA oils before then you totally get it! If you haven’t, here is why Jen thinks you really need to.
A couple months back I was at an expo and walked past a doTERRA booth. I turned around and decided to ask a few questions. I’ve heard so much about oils and had been too nervous to ask about them. I also wasn’t sure that I totally believed they would work. I had heard a bunch of great stories, but didn’t think something would possibly work for me.
I asked about anxiety, migraines, snoring, and asthma. The people working the booth were so kind and some of the most knowledgeable people.
I decided to try Serenity to calm me down & Elevation to help my mood and increase my energy.
You are looking at someone who was a nonbeliever. I felt so bad for Jessica while she was trying to tell me about them and I was totally doubting her.
Elevation doesn’t leave my purse now. It smells amazing and is my absolute favorite oil. I think it’s a sign, Elevation — Elevate Everyday, you get it. When my anxiety and stress level is at an all time high, I dab a little bit on my wrists and am good to go. More than anything, I’m loving not being on a daily pill that I felt was turning me into a zombie who needed a long nap everyday. While I am in support of medication, I’m glad that my anxiety has subsided enough for me to go off of it for now.
Past tense doesn’t leave my nightstand.
I often get tension headaches at night and have a hard time getting my brain to rest. I roll some Past Tense on my forehead and it has worked wonders. I even got my husband on board. He got a random headache, we rolled this on and it was almost instant. I can’t fully explain it. All I know is it has been a lifesaver. I prefer it over the Peppermint.
Want to hear about Summer’s go to oils???
Like Jen I have been skeptical about using oils. I’ve know about them for years, but never felt compelled enough to make the investment to purchase them. When I brought them home my husband even laughed at me for a second. Our kids happened to be sick (they are pretty much always sick with a cough). My kiddos have a really hard time kicking colds whenever they get them. I’m talking a cough that lasts for 2-3 months. We usually have to give them cingular for 2 weeks before we see any improvement. One night Gavin was coughing so hard in his sleep that he was gagging.
I grabbed the Breathe Blend and mixed it with a bit of fractionated coconut oil and rubbed it on his chest, back and feet. No joke, it was like magic! No a peep from him the rest of the night. My husband was literally speechless. This has been so important to our family. Not having to dose them up on cough medicine all day, week after week is such a blessing. They now ask for the oils when they have a cough.
Our other go to oil for the kids is Lavender. Not only does it smell like heaven in a bottle, it’s so soothing. I put a few drops in the tub when they take their evening baths and spray a little on their pillows and they drift off to sleep so much easier and faster than they used to. They also sleep more soundly. I even put it on the pillows in our bed. This works great as a fabric refresher too. Mix it with some water in a spray bottle and it’s way better than Febreze.
