I am always asked - why dōTERRA®?

There are a wide variety of oils on the market, but in my mind there is really only one brand that offers you the quality and assurance that you are doing the right thing for your mind, body, spirit, and your family as well

From the sourcing of the products, to the testing methods, and how the company is committed to giving back.  All roads have led to dōTERRA.  One of the best decisions of my life.

All my best,

Oil of Oregano

Oil of oregano is one of my all-time favorite smells and it also packs a punch when it comes to its health benefits.

Derived from the oregano plant by steam distillation, oil of oregano is so powerful that it must be DILUTED for safe use.

Once diluted, it can be added to a diffuser or vaporizer to clear up nasal passages. It’s also effective at providing temporary sore throat relief when added sparingly to juice or water for gargling. Not to mention, when added to a carrier oil (like coconut or almond oil), it may provide relief for skin conditions including skin abrasions, muscle aches, temporary relief of joint pain and even itchy or flakey scalp. (Just be careful not to apply it to broken or sensitive skin as it can be irritating.)

There really are a whole host of benefits with Oregano so if you decide to incorporate this into your life, please let me know and I will offer advice. 

Carrier Oils

I always love discussing carrier oils with people who are on their Essential Oil journey! Many are so popular that I have a feeling you’ve already heard about them.

Some of the most common are pure olive oil, coconut oil, almond oil, and avocado oil just to name a few.

Carrier oils need to be part of your natural arsenal if you’re committing to living a holistic lifestyle and they are very, VERY, worth it!

They are used when:

  • You want to use a little essential oil (maybe a drop) and apply it to a large area

  • You want the carrier oils’ lipids to drive the essential oils into the pores

  • You want essential oils to absorb better internally

  • You want to avoid a rash from concentrated oil if you have sensitive skin

There are so many other carrier oils (like apricot, grapeseed and evening primrose) but if you’re looking to dabble without breaking the bank, I recommend starting with coconut oil as the uses are plentiful.

Feel free to ask me a question about essential oils!
