An Introduction to Essential Oils

Capture

Welcome!!

Just in case we have not met, our names are Jess and Neil.  We have 4 Children, two girls, Emily and Eve, and two boys, Jacob and Noah. We’ve fallen in love with DoTERRA oils. Whatever life throws at us, we have been able to turn to our box of oils rather than worry as to whether  we will be able to get a Doctor’s appointment or if there is a pharmacy open. Our role is to educate you on some of the oils and their benefits and show you how easy it is for you to look after yourself and your loved ones in a natural and safe manner.

ESSENTIAL OILS ARE SAFE

I completely understand your desire to help your children, your family, and yourself be healthy. It is a scary world out there and the amount of misinformation is overwhelming (especially over the internet!!).

I want your mind to be put to ease when it comes to using Essential Oils with your family because they are safe, effective, and you are able to control the amount in each application. Below is a great article from doTERRA on the recommended oil amounts for Adults and Children.

Recpommended Oil Amount

 

DO YOU HAVE CHILDREN? ( The four legged kind are included too, did you know many oils are great for them too?)

Because some of you may have children or grandchildren this is important to touch on 🙂 Although you may just now be hearing about Essential Oils, they are not new or novel. They have been in existence for thousands of years and have been health supporting agents for our ancestor’s ancestors! Essential oils contain constituents that will be recognised by our body systems and handled appropriately. Rest assured that if you use essential oils on your children, you’re not inventing the wheel. One thing you should always consider is that kidʼs skin is not the same as adult skin because it is usually thinner and more sensitive.

Although most doTERRA oils are non-irritating to the skin, it is still a good idea to dilute them in a good carrier oil before applying to children. I love Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO) for dilution and to make my roller bottles, its non greasy and will NOT stain! (It is also recommended to apply oils to the bottom of their feet where the skin is the thickest – my kids love doing this themselves)

QUALITY MATTERS So why doTERRA?

This is probably the question I get asked most often when sharing Essential Oils because there are so many brands on the market, but…
 NOT ALL OILS ARE CREATED EQUALLY!

The main reason I chose doTERRA is that the oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic-Grade (CPTG). This is REALLY important because every oil has ZERO fillers, synthetics, dyes, pesticides, or contaminants of any kind. They are just pure, unadulterated oil. doTERRA created this standard as a promise of purity and each and every batch is third party tested so you can be confident in not just their purity, but potency as well. Take a look at this 3.5 minute video explaining CPTG essential oils

ESSENTIAL OILS ARE EFFECTIVE & AFFORDABLE

Essential oils are effective! They are highly concentrated and 50-70x more powerful than herbs. Respect the oils – a little goes a long way! doTERRA essential oils work at the cellular level because the molecules are so small that they can penetrate the cell wall to kill virus’ and bacteria. (Just as a comparison, antibiotics cannot do this as they cannot penetrate the cell membrane.) It’s also amazing how INEXPENSIVE essential oils are when you break it down. Most of our bottles are 15ml. These bottles contain 250 drops of oil. Due to the potency of the essential oils, you only need to use one drop at a time.

HOW CAN YOU USE ESSENTIAL OILS?

You can use doTERRA essential oils 3 ways. Aromatically, Topically and Internally. Note: I can only recommend using doTERRA essential oils internally because I know and trust their purity. Many other brands are not safe to use internally.

QUESTION: WHICH WAY DO YOU SEE YOURSELF USING THE OILS THE MOST OFTEN IN YOUR FAMILY?

LET’S TALK OILS!

Let’s start by talking about our favourite oil, Lavender! Lavender has been a sleep saviour for us.  Our youngest son Noah, now 2, found sleep times difficult from being a baby.  We diffuse it each night, also for daytime naps and apply it to the soles of the children’s and our feet  before bed, to promote a restful night’s sleep. It is widely used for its calming and relaxing qualities.

Lavender is the “Swiss Army Knife of Essential Oils,” due to its versatile uses.  Keep a bottle of lavender on hand to soothe occasional skin irritations, help ease feelings of tension, and reduces anxious feelings.

IMMUNE BOOST

On Guard is doTERRA’s protective blend. It contains a blend of Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils to really help support the immune system and to help your body deal with the bugs before they knock you out! Diffusing OnGuard can purify and cleanse the air, providing added protection when the seasonal threats are high. I recommend diffusing essential oils every day. Lemon and On Guard Protective Blend contain powerful cleansing properties that purify the air we breathe, delivering positive effects on the immune system.

We use On Guard for everything from cleaning to sore throats. We have made a hand sanitiser that we take everywhere for the kids. To make On Guard Hand Sanitizer: 20 drops doTERRA On Guard Protective Blend , 4 ounce spray bottle,  1 tablespoon aloe vera gel and Water

Put ingredients in a small squeeze bottle or spray bottle. Shake before each use.

QUESTION: HAVE YOU EVER USED NATURAL PRODUCTS TO CLEAN YOUR HOME?

 

 

LET’S TALK ABOUT CHEST CONGESTION!

This oil is a life saver in our home! This little oil helped Neil so much….BREATHE! This oil is amazing for any sort of Respiratory issues and any congestion. It works so great at helping open your airways and getting rid of any sinus gunk!

This awesome oil also comes in a stick form….think Vick’s Vapor Rub in a deodorant stick minus all the synthetics and gooeyness (got the visual?).  We apply this to the bottoms of feet, as well as on chests. If we are having issues at night, we simply add a drop or two to our diffuser, restful night guaranteed.  Neil has a lot of issues during colds with Asthma, but Breathe is one of the few things that opens up his airways and allows him to settle his breathing naturally. It can also be used a little before exercise or gym visits to help improve breathing

QUESTION: HOW COULD YOU USE BREATHE IN YOUR FAMILY?

UPSET STOMACH ANYONE?

Well it can’t get any better than this! I mean what else out there can you take for: Upset stomach, Nausea, Gas, Bloating the list goes on…. Well this little gem will be a staple for you! Strangely enough, when applied to the navel area it also helps clear sinuses, who knew?!

QUESTION: WHAT TUMMY PROBLEMS HAVE HAD AT YOUR HOUSE (Come on, we are friends now right?)

13

 

NEED A PICK ME UP? FEELING TIRED?

If you or someone you know has trouble staying awake during long meetings or would like a natural method to feel alert, Peppermint oil used topically and aromatically can help.  In order to create this extra boost, place 1-2 drops of Peppermint on your fingertips and then place your fingertips on your temples and rub.

This will help give you the natural sense of alertness you desire when you need it most.

TOP TIP – Mix a few drops of pepper mint oil with water in a spray bottle and use to mist and cool down your body during hot summer days.  Peppermint can also be used to relieve seasonal discomforts, Both Neil and Jacob use it each day, especially during high pollen counts to relieve itchy/sticky eyes.

Looking for a way to repel bugs and spiders in your house? Many bugs dislike the potent smell of Peppermint. Try placing 1-3 drops of essential oil on a cotton ball and position them in the corners of rooms or wherever you think these unwanted guests might be.

MANAGING THAT TIME OF THE MONTH!

I had to add this oil to the mix because it is seriously a life saver! All you women know what I’m talking about! And for the men….this might save your relationship 🙂

Clary Calm is perfect for helping manage:  Cramps,  Hormones, Headaches, Acne, Regularity….You get the idea! Just rub this little gem on your abdomen, lower back and back of your neck when symptoms arise and voila!

QUESTION: WOULD THIS ALSO BE A LIFESAVER IN YOUR HOME?

15

 

ACHY MUSCLES?

doTERRA has this amazing blend of essential oils for topical use called Deep Blue. It is a natural version of deep heat, without the horrible smell, chemicals and stains on clothes. Perfect for all you athletes.

The best part is that they made it into a rub too that is especially good for those sore muscles. This oil is also great for arthritis, inflammation, carpel tunnel, chronic pain, fibromyalgia and back ache too!

QUESTION: WHAT WOULD YOU USE DEEP BLUE FOR?

16

 

MY BEST FRIEND FRANK!

Wow! Let me just start off by saying that if I had to choose just one oil, this would probably be it. It’s amazing! When I don’t know what to use, I grab Frankincense because it has so many properties it can help with almost anything. Just remember, when in doubt…use Frankincense. Think of anything skin, neurological, depression, focus and so much more! It is also great mixed with other oils, as it works as an enhancer.

This is a cool video for more info: doTERRA® Frankincense Oil Uses and Benefits

QUESTION: WOULD YOU AGREE THAT IT IS THE KING OF OILS?

GREEN CLEANING!

Mmmm…We seriously LOVE the smell of fresh lemons, and when I open up a bottle of doTERRA lemon oil it never fails to lift my spirit. This is an oil that I literally use daily.

I use 1 drop in my glass of water every morning to help detox and cleanse my body. A drop added to honey is a real treat for a sore throat.  I also add 5-10 drops to my spray bottle and clean up around my house with it. Used in the diffuser gets rid of unwanted odours and leaves a fresh feeling in the home. Gotta love my lemon oil!

QUESTION: WHAT ARE SOME WAYS YOU COULD USE LEMON AROUND YOUR HOUSE?

NEED SOMETHING ANTIFUNGAL, ANTIBACTERIAL AND ANTIVIRAL?

Melaleuca more commonly known as Tea Tree oil has antiseptic properties. We use this for ear infections, sore throats, and athlete’s foot. It’s also great for the skin and nails, and promotes a clear and healthy complexion. Also great for those cuts when shaving, Ouch!

I carry an ‘Owie’ rollerball around with me, for bumps, bruises, cuts and grazes. I use a 10ml roller bottle, with 3 drops of Lavender, 3 drops of Frankincense and 3 drops of Melaleuca, topped up with fractionated coconut oil.

HOW TO HAVE OILS IN YOUR HOME

Let’s talk about the good stuff! If there is an oil you are wanting to try, let me know. However, the BEST (cheapest) way to get started is by enrolling with us as a wholesale customer. It’s similar to a Costco membership; it’s a £24 (GBP) membership fee which gives you 25% off all products for a year. Having a membership also gives you access to monthly discounts and promotions.

The coolest part about the membership is there are no monthly minimums (buy what you want when you want)! I also get this question A LOT: Do I have to sell oils?  Absolutely not! You can just use the oils to support your family’s health. If you change your mind at some point and want to start sharing doTERRA, just let me know and we will help you get started!
