I am always in search of best natural remedies. I was introduced to “dōTERRA Essential Oils” by my good friend who is always great at finding therapeutic essential oils. She is one of those friends who you want around, especially for those moments when you are experiencing nausea, headache, stomach ache, sea sickness, motion sickness…. I mean she has oils for everything and they actually work.
So after doing some research I found that dōTERRA Essential Oils has been around since 2008 and they are targeted towards young families. Their website is very educational and their oils smell great.
My friend was kind enough to give me the introductory kit that included lavender, lemon and peppermint oils. I am a big sucker for nice packaging, and the packaging for this kit is beautiful and very educational.
As you open the box, you will see a set of instructions for each oil. This part of the packaging is very helpful as it kind of breaks it down for you and shows you what each oil can be used for. I can not get enough of the peppermint. It smells like candy cane and I would definitely keep it away from kids if you have kids in the house.
As for the Lavender and the Lemon, I have tried most of the instructions that are listed in the box. I am still not sure if they do what the they claim but I know that they do make me feel better after I use them. I get sea and motion sickness quite often, and I have noticed that when I rub the peppermint oil to my temples, and a little under my nose, it helps relieve those symptoms right away.
I use the Lavender oil at night time. I rub a little on my forehead and on my wrists, it helps my insomnia a little.
Here is a little chart of what each oil is used for.
