How to use essential oils for family
If you've recently heard the powerful effects of essential oils when used for your family, then this post is for you.
I grew up with essential oils as part of the background to my childhood, and trained as an Aromatherapist to help out in the family practice as soon as I turned 16. Recently however, I decided to become a Wellness Advocate after I discovered DoTerra's oils. I strongly felt that as someone who actively encourages mums to look after themselves, this would be an additional way to inspire and motivate people.
Why Doterra Essential Oils?
DoTerra are the first oils to be certified pure, and be able to prove it. Unlike most oils, they are 100% free of contaminants and fillers, making many of them ingestible. This has given me so much more confidence to use them with my children. Added to that, DoTerra's passionate and vocal about ethically sourcing, and supporting the communities who harvest the oils, and at a time when even my youngest is obsessed with saving the planet, this seems like a good fit for me!
I've been impressed with their cold-steam diffusers, which can help purify the air, as well as helping build the immune system and aid in the recovery of coughs and colds. My daughter particularly enjoys having a diffuser in her room at night, as she is the snuffliest of us all!
How my kids use Doterra Oils
The best way to use these oils as a family though, has to be their roll on 'Touch Kit'. These 10ml bottles are ready mixed with fractionated coconut oil, at a strength that is powerfully effective, yet gentle enough for my youngsters (aged 13, 10 and 8) to administer themselves.
This week alone, they used them for minor burns, spots, sore throats, blocked noses and achy muscles. In fact, any excuse to get the roll on's out and they are there! There's something satisfying about watching my children be involved in looking after their own health and wellbeing, like some important ancient knowledge and sense survival & empowerment has been imparted.
The pack includes the following oils:
- doTERRA Breathe®
- Deep Blue®
- doTERRA On Guard®
