When I meet people and they find out I know a little bit about Essential Oils and love talking about and using them I quite often hear questions. Over the years I have found a pattern of similarity in the questions asked.
- Why use Essential Oils?
- What Oils should I start with?
- How do I use them once I get them?
The answers are really rather personal I think. The use of Essential Oils goes back to Ancient Times and all recorded history contains references to them being used in therapeutic ways. Most common uses were skin care- think of Queen Esther and Queen of Sheba! We use them to strengthen our immune systems to fight off health attacks! doTERRA uses state of the art methods to be sure that no synthetic or chemical adulteration should ever contaminate their Essential Oils.
I recommend starting with a basic 10 oils. Single Oils, lemon, lavender, melaleuca, oregano, frankincense, peppermint, and several blends- On Guard, Digestzen, Deep Blue and Breathe. These 10 will cover almost ANY need you can throw at them! doTERRA has compiled several kits which have these 10 starter oils. The kits are a great way to start. My favorite is The Home Essentials Kit. http://bit.ly/2BOGPn0. Home Essentials includes a diffuser plus those 10 Oils in 15 ml sizes except the Deep Blue which is a 5 ml. Of course there are several others!! Check them out under Enrollment kits.
How to use them?? Wow- that is the fun part and it’s like Christmas when you get your box! Don’t hesitate to dive in and open EVERY single bottle to inhale those wonderful aromas! Each bottle is labeled as either an Essential Oil Supplement or an Essential Oil Blend. You can drop one drop of the Oil Supplement into your water for a tasty drink if you want! Your Home Essentials kit includes a book from the company which talks about each oil and blend as well as a cap sticker to put on top of each bottle! Fun stuff! Of course, I will help you learn to use your products via in-person class or a zoom call! This is when you start educating yourself and learn to become the best healer in the world. That is my goal- for a Healer to be in Every Home.
