doTerra oils are a hot trend in the wellness realm. A claim of oils is that they affect everything from your mood to your physical health. Plus, they can be an alternative, natural choice for cleaning and personal hygiene.
I’m a photographer and and filmmaker and you may be thinking, Jen, why are you telling us about oils? Well, when I find something I like, I’d rather share it than keep it to myself!
My pal Sarah is well-versed in doTERRA Oils and she came over to teach some friends and me a few things about using them in everyday life. First, she explained there are three ways to use oils; on the skin, in the air and ingesting them.
My Fav doTERRA Oils
My absolute favorite is a sleep blend consisting of Serenity blend and Vetiver (a root). I’ve used this blend mixed with fractionated coconut oil (as a base) for some time and the scent is a natural cue to my body that it’s time to sleep. I use a roller-ball on the inside of my forearms and behind my ears. Sometimes, I even put a little on the soles of my feet. Once I’m asleep, I rarely wake up and if I do, it’s not a struggle to fall back asleep.
Also, when I work in my home office, the diffuser has helped me focus. It pumping a steady, calming stream of Wild Orange into the air. The bright, citrus scent has helped me stay focused. Plus, my office smells so yummy!
My latest healthy habit is putting a drop of turmeric oil in my ginger tea at night. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and acts as an antioxidant. It’s been known to help with symptoms of depression & arthritis.
