6 Ways to Use Essential Oils for your Daily Wellness Routine—They work for me!
When I was young I used to be amazed at how long it took my mother-in-law to get ready to leave the house and for that matter, to get ready for bed. Little did I know then, how important this daily routine was for being healthy as one ages. Thank you, Joyce Trank.
I want to share with you part of my daily health routine involving essential oils, not to gloat, but to provide you with some tips that have worked for me that you might want to add that might work for you.
- Lemon Oil in warm water.
I started using essential oils as part of my daily health regiment a year ago. I started small. I bought the Doterra Lemon oil and added it to my room temperature water every morning. If I skip this simple small routine I know it. Thank you sensitive stomach!!!
- Diffusing Lavender and On Guard for room freshening and sleep
I bought a diffuser next and experimented with several different oils to help us sleep at night. Most of the time, I mix Lavender with a blend called On Guard, Doterra’s proprietary combination of Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils. Sleeping soundly is so important for my health and happiness. I also use the On Guard Toothpaste and their throat lozenges .
- Peppermint to cool down and reduce headache symptoms
I use Peppermint on the back of my neck and wrists to abate hot flashes and help reduce headache symptoms. A friend of mine told me she puts Peppermint in her water before playing tennis. I also use Peppermint, on occasion, to wake my children. I put some Peppermint on a clean wash cloth and come up to their beds and wave the wash cloth near their noses. They get up immediately and have told me they feel more alert.
- Breathe for respiratory symptom relief
Dealing with respiratory symptoms always includes breathing in the Breathe proprietary blend which includes Lemon, Peppermint Eucalyptus, Thyme, Melissa and Cardamom which clears my airways. I also rub them on my palms and bottoms of my feet.
- Diluted Clove Oil for tooth ache
During recent tooth work to repair a crown, I mixed a blend of Clove oil (1-2 drops) and Coconut Oil (10-20 drops) and dabbed into the affected area with a Q Tip. Not only did I feel a lessening of discomfort, but it seemed to help the healing of that area.
- Deep Blue Proprietary Blend for muscle aches
After teaching 3 yoga classes and playing a physical tennis match, I reach for my Doterra Deep Blue Blend which has a proprietary mixture of Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Blue Tansy, German Chamomile, Helichrysum and Osmanthus . I immediately get a feeling of relaxation in my muscles allowing me to go on with my busy life and day.
I am discovering new uses for my DoTerra products daily. I feel good about using these products due to the fact that they are non toxic and extracted from the plants using the strictest controls of manufacturing and distribution.
It is becoming well known that one of the keys to protecting your health in the long run is eliminating toxics from your environment. Use of essential oils is one small step you can take. If you are interested in learning more about Doterra Oils and its uses, I can help. The reason I added this job to my long list of jobs is that my scientific and thorough approach is needed by clients out there. I do not want someone working with me that does not take the time to research carefully a product’s benefits, uses and effects. Like everything I do, when I commit to something, I pour myself into it. So you can be sure before I recommend a product for you, I will thoroughly research it and work with you to become educated.
