A momma looking for solutions...
My journey to discovering Doterra Essential oils began with my older son Jackson. He was the reason why I started using them 7 years ago. Even as a little one he was constantly struggling with sinus infections, high fevers and skin discomforts. We tried for years the "normal" course and used antibiotics, over the counter pain remedies, and hospital visits all to just start all over again a few weeks or months later. It was a cycle that never seemed to lessen. I felt helpless. I hated constantly giving my child medications.
Since I started using DoTERRA oils my son has not -knock on wood - suffered with high fevers in 6 years! HORAY ! Not to mention his immune system is so strong now we rarely see him sick. I not only use the oils for boosting our immune systems once needed , but for stress / emotional support, cleaning and our second bundle of joy Bohdi for teething, sleep support, digestive support and prevention for all those yuckie germs we used to be plagued with. Just to name a few. Thankfully, with Bodhi it has been a whole different experience than we had with our first.
My desire is to help others - especially mommas - in guiding them to alternative options in healthcare. It has totally transformed our family and I hope I can help guide yours as well.

WHAT IS AN ESSENTIAL OIL ?
Essential oils can assist in relaxing, sleeping better, or improving a skin condition. They can assist with mild digestive issues and minor aches. Their benefits can go beyond a pleasant smell.
The chemical composition and aroma of essential oils can provide valuable psychological and physical therapeutic benefits. These benefits are usually achieved through several methods including inhalation, application of diluted essential oils on the skin, or even internally if Certified Pure.
If you have ever squeezed the peel of a lemon or an orange and smelled the strong scents emitted, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. Besides giving plants their distinctive smells, essential oils protect plants and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being wonderfully fragrant to people, essential oils have long been used in food preparation, beauty treatments, massage, aromatherapy and for many therapeutic and wellness benefits.
Essential oils, contrary to the use of the word “oil”, are not oily-feeling at all. Pure essential oils are clear – or are the color of the plant of origin – but pure essential oils should leave no residue when placed on the skin or on a paper towel.
An essential oil contains the true essence of the plant that it is derived from.
Essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their therapeutic benefits. For millennia they have been used in ancient practices, beauty treatments, religious ceremonies and in modern aromatherapy. Modern trends toward more holistic approaches to self-care and wellness are driving a rediscovery of the profound benefits of essential oils. Many have powerful cleansing and rejuvenating properties.
We all know the power of smell and how every day scents can affect us – both negatively and positively. Whenever we smell a perfume or cologne we can be reminded of someone and we can be taken back in time with a simple scent. Essential oils are not the same as perfume or fragrances. Where essential oils are derived from the true essence of plants, perfume oils are artificial or contain a variety of external substances and do not offer the therapeutic benefits that pure essential oils can offer.
Inhalation and topical application of essential oils as a molecule can enter the lungs and are absorbed in the bloodstream fairly quickly. Essential oils can have a powerful effect on us mentally, physically and emotionally. Their unique chemistry structure allows them to pass directly through the skin for immediate systemic response to topical application. Certain oils can be used as dietary aids to promote vitality and well-being.
