I have really gotten into essential oils over the past year.  I had been a fan of tea tree oil and lavender oil for a few years, but that was about the end of my knowledge.  Since then I have gone to several essential oil classes and learned about so many different companies.  There really are SO many different options out there!

Nikki Bryant is a local DFW consultant and she introduced me to doTerra.  She gave me 5 sample to try and they were Lavender, Clove, Peppermint, OnGuard and Breathe.  Lavender is one of our daily use oils.  I use this nearly every night when my youngest is super fussy.  I turned the sample into a roller ball form which just means I put some coconut oil in a roller ball applicator and added a few drops of lavender.  I would apply this behind my little one’s ears and on the bottoms of his feet and he would almost instantly relax and fall asleep.  Lavender is also good on any and all boo-boos!!

The clove is great for teething but it is a “hot oil” so make sure you dilute it very well or it can burn the skin.  I made a little jar of clove mixture, again mixed with coconut oil, and would rub a little bit on my son’d gums and on his jaw line.  He is a miserable teether and this really helped him to calm down, easing his pain.  doTerra’s clove oil seems a slightly sweeter smelling than another brand that I have tried and the same for their peppermint.  I also noticed that the taste of the doTerra clove oil is a little better than another oil company that I am reviewing.  

Peppermint oil is fabulous for headaches.  I occasionally switch back and forth from my contacts to glasses and when I do, I sometimes get headaches.  All I have to do is take a whiff of the peppermint oil and my headache is almost instantly gone.  It’s really quite amazing how powerful these oils are!

Just a few weeks ago, my youngest son had a terribly cold.  He was having so much trouble sleeping at night because he was so congested.  He would try to breastfeed, but couldn’t breathe out of his nose.  He would get so upset, he would start crying.  I got up in the middle of the night, turned on my diffuser with OnGuard, rubbed some Breathe mixture onto his chest and he could breathe through his nose within SECONDS.  It really helped us through the nights which were always worse than the daytime.  OnGuard is great for keeping all of the germs at bay.  I make sure to have it diffusing constantly when we are or feel the sick coming our way.
