dōTERRA Dr. Mom Kit Survey Results

Our latest blog survey asked the following question:
Which essential oil blend in the Dr. Mom kit do you use most frequently?

Here are the results starting with the most frequently used blend:
1. On Guard (50%)
[Editor's note: Smart choice, since On Guard helps prevent the onset of illness!]
2. Breathe (22%)
[Makes sense that it's the second most-used blend, since respiratory issues are a big concern during the winter months and are an on-going concern for those with asthma.]

3. Deep Blue (18%)
[It's great to have Deep Blue since we frequently encounter discomfort due to everyday activities or chronic conditions.]

4. DigestZen (9%)
[Stomachaches, nausea, and perhaps heartburn or acid reflux can take its toll. Keep a bottle of DigestZen handy all the time!]

Thanks for participating, and be sure to also leave comments on our blog! We love to hear from you and will soon be offering giveaways to encourage more participation!

Pure Essential Oils Offer Healthcare Solutions During Difficult Economic Times

According to the latest statistics, the current recession has many people suffering from more than just economic woes. Many people have been experiencing an increase in stress and anxiety, which has led to many sleepless nights and a host of health concerns.

Pure, natural essential oils are an affordable, safe way to address these concerns.

Reduce Stress:
Several essential oils are ideal for elevating mood and helping one regain a positive outlook.
Lavender, Wild Orange, Lemongrass, Peppermint, and Lemon essential oils. Diffuse any one of these, or create your own uplifting blend!

According to a recent report in USA TODAY by Michelle Healy, "Use of prescription sleep aids nearly tripled among young adults from 1998 to 2006, according to a study by Thomson Reuters. A study of medical and drug claims data found a 50% increase in use of the drugs among adults under 45. But perhaps the most startling finding was the increase in use of sleep aids among adults 18 to 24. Use in this age group rose to 1,524 users per 100,000 in 2006, up from 599 users per 100,000 in 1998."

Several of doTERRA's pure essential oils provide a safe, all-natural remedy without side effects.

Start Snoozing:
Studies have documented the effectiveness of lavender essential oil to induce sleep, Geranium essential oil for its ability to ease anxiety and tension and calm the mind, and Serenity Calming Blend for its ability to promote restful sleep.

My Faves:
1. Massage a few drops of Lavender, Geranium, or Serenity to the bottom of the feet before going to bed.
2. Add a few drops of Lavender, Geranium, or Serenity to a spray bottle filled with water and spritz bed linens and pillow before bedtime.
3. Add several drops of Lavender, Geranium, or Serenity to warm bath water and enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub.
4. Diffuse Lavender, Geranium, or Serenity in your room to create a relaxing, sleep-inducing environment.

Yoga Classes with Aromatherapy

Whether you work in an office all day, are an athlete in training, or a busy mom chasing toddlers, chances are you could use a yoga break!

A group of us at dōTERRA recently attended our first yoga class together and discovered how amazing it is. Add aromatherapy to this deeply meditative discipline, and you have the perfect combination for a calming, inspiring experience that includes deep breathing, flowing movement, and increased strength and flexibility. To learn more, read these two excellent articles written by Dr. Maryann Thorhallsson about yoga and essential oils.
Crystal Wood, an Independent Product Consultant, is offering classes and personal training with aromatherapy by dōTERRA for Utah Valley locals.

dōTERRA's Dr. Mom Kit--Because Mom Knows Best!

Yesterday morning, my oldest son woke up with a sore throat. That achy, scratchy, yucky kind of sore throat that no one likes to have. The day before, my youngest daughter had a cut on her leg that was bleeding. That same day, my other daughter was complaining about a cold sore in her mouth.

Each and every day I am Dr. Mom in my home, taking care of my kids' scrapes, bumps, and bruises. But instead of turning to over-the-counter medications, I use essential oils to care for these types of common occurences. So to soothe my son's sore throat, I gave him a teaspoon of honey with lemon essential oil to swallow, and he felt better right away! To help cleanse the cut on my daughter's leg and help avoid scarring, I put lavender essential oil on the cotton pad of a bandage and placed it over the cut. Then I put melaleuca essential oil on a Q-tip and applied it to my other daughter's mouth for her cold sore.

dōTERRA's essential oils are pure and all-natural, and are the most nurturing way to care for your family's everyday health needs. The new dōTERRA Dr. Mom kit contains nine nurturing essential oils for all your family's health needs. It's amazing how simple it is to use essential oils in caring for loved ones, and how much better they feel.

In anticipation of strong sales, dōTERRA is offering pre-order sales March 1- March 18, with guaranteed shipment by March 18. Click here for more details!
