I recently became a dōTERRA wellness advocate. I am super new to using essential oils, and dōTERRA’s quality seems top notch. Since I am a novice at everything, I don’t claim to be an expert on anything-oils included. As I learn about the different uses of oils and actually use them I have friends and family that show interest. One friend asked for some samples, so I decided to make her a little sample jam with a few of my favorites.
I’ll share what I have learned about each of these.
Wild Orange & Lemon are both are citrus oils that are great for cleaning and uplifting mood. You can drop lemon into your disposal and run it and it will take any funky stink-stink. I have read that these oils can cause sun sensitivity.
Lavender is another essential oil that promotes calming and if you put a drop on your pillow, it may help you have a restful sleep.
InTune is a focus blend that I use to help control my wandering brain when I need to focus. It contains Amyris, Patchouli, Frankincense, Lime, Ylang Ylang, Hawaiian Sandalwood, and Roman Chamomile. All of these oils have been used to promote calmness and focus. I also heavily dilute it for use on my preschooler when she needs to control her cray-cray (Emphasis on the heavily diluted part.)
Balance is my FAVORITE! It is dōTERRA’s grounding blend, and it helps to tame the mama-hulk that tries to come out as we’re leaving for school in the morning. This blend contains Spruce, Ho Wood, Blue Tansy, Frankincense, German (Blue) Chamomile, and Fractionated Coconut Oil.
— a little about me: I have a lot of anxiety and worry a lot. This blend helps me calm down.
Chill Mama Sprout, Chill! I recently layered Wild Orange on top of some Balance and I was a calm/happy lady!
The two roller blends were for my friends baby:
Serenity is dōTERRA’s calming blend. It is a blend of Lavender Flower, Sweet Marjoram Leaf, Roman Chamomile Flower, Ylang Ylang Flower, Hawaiian Sandalwood essential oils and Vanilla Bean Absolute. All of which are safe for mama and baby. In the roller ball is one drop of serenity oil and the rest is Fractionated Coconut oil. It is meant to be rolled on the bottom of baby’s feet at bed time to calm them or anytime baby needs calming.
Frankincense/Lavender Blend has one drop of each and the rest is Fractionated Coconut Oil. Not only does this blend work to calm baby, but it also can be used as an immunity booster. I use it when my one year old is congested. I recently read that this blend can help with boo-boos. I haven’t used this blend for that, but I am down to try it.
