Today’s post is brought to you by Angie at OilLovingDWM. I’ve had a great time getting to know her a bit more and as someone who has always been interested in the benefits of essential oils, I was so excited when she wanted to guest post here and share her story and favorite oils. Check her out on Instagram or take a look at her doTERRA oils! If you’d like to chat with her more about the benefits you can also email her! Without further ado, I’ll let Angie take over!
Angie’s Essential Oils Story
I started using essential oils about five years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter Ali. I would put a couple drops of lemon oil in my water to help with constipation. It did help, but (at the time) I thought essential oils were very expensive so I didn’t put too much time into learning the whys or hows of oils.
Fast forward three years and I was still using a few oils here and there but not consistently. That is, until we went camping and the family we were camping beside had kids the same age as our two. Because of the age similarities, they spent a lot of time playing together. Zack, our son, had a boo-boo on his knee that would not heal well and he kept opening the scab. Stephanie, the other camping mom, asked if I had used Correct-X. I said, “Correct what?” She told me to hold on while she went to get it. She came back with a small tub of essential oil “Neosporin” and it worked great. Plus, I knew I was putting something safe on my kid’s skin!
After camping I ordered my own Correct-X and thought nothing more of it! A few days later Stephanie called me to follow up with my purchase and see if I needed anything else. The more we chatted about doTERRA and the more I learned, I knew this was a company I needed to be a part of! As I did more research I learned that doTERRA supplements were the #1 selling item for the company! So I sat down and started crunching numbers and comparing the cost of our previous high-quality supplements to the doTERRA supplements. I was happy and surprised that we would be saving money if our family switched to doTERRA. So we did!!
Which Oils We Use Every Day
My husband and I both take the Microplex Vmz Food Nutrient Complex and the xEO Mega Essential Oil Omega Complex everyday. My kids take the A2Z Chewable each morning and the IQ Mega. We all love the On Guard Natural Toothpaste. It has a cinnamon-mint flavor and is safe for all of us to use. I still enjoy lemon, grapefruit, or wild orange oil in my water! We use the melaleuca (tea tree) roll on for any skin issues and Digestzen for tummy aches (or too many carbs! haha). I use the Purify oil on my wool dryer balls when I do laundry. My kids get the Peace oil rolled onto the back of their necks about 30 minutes before bedtime. This helps them settle down and go to sleep. I also diffuse Serenity and Breathe oils in their diffuser in their bedroom.
