My oil story
I haven’t always been Oil Powered. In fact, when I first heard about using essential oils for health purposes, I thought “those people” were nuts. When my sister-in-law told me that she put On Guard on her son’s feet every night to boost his immune system, and that he stayed healthy, I thought, “Um…right. Want us to dance around a fire and chant too? And what’s up with putting oils on the FEET?”
However, the idea WAS pretty appealing, so about a year later, when my son was teething, I decided to try the oily remedy for teething discomfort: Clove. I zipped on over to the health food store and picked up a generic bottle that said it was 100% pure Clove oil, and went home to dilute and apply it to his sore gums, hoping I would be able to help him naturally.
Well, it didn’t work. Not at all. I have always been open to natural solutions, and was pretty bummed that this one hadn’t helped. So to the normal route we went. However, I knew in my heart there had to be a natural, EFFECTIVE way to help him with this.
So I decided it was time to give the natural route another go. I bit the bullet and ordered some doTERRA clove oil, aka: the “expensive stuff”. And ya know what? It actually worked (because it was ACTUALLY pure – read more about different oil qualities here!) My son would come running up to me with his mouth open so I could massage his gums with some of this stuff. And ya know what else? I STILL have that same $14 bottle of clove oil – even after both my children have gone through teething, AND after making teething oil blends for many other moms. The “expensive stuff” turned out to be just pennies per dose (less than a penny per dose in this case!), and way more effective than “normal” options.
That really peaked my interest. If this one certified pure essential oil worked, maybe I should try some of the others! Now, almost three years later, I don’t go a single day without using multiple high quality doTERRA essential oil products in my home. They have changed the way we care for ourselves. They have changed our finances, both in saving us money and in boosting our income. They have empowered me to care for my family with confidence and success. They have made me an Oil Powered Mom.
