Ancient Oils

You may have heard all the talk about essential oils lately??? Hopefully you are taking advantage and becoming your own doctor for your family. Well, these oils-Doterra, are as good as everyone is making them sound.  There really is something amazing and powerful you can use to heal your family. 

They are ancient
they are very sacred.
  • Jesus' body was wrapped in Myrrh and Aloe.
  • Egyptians have used essential oils for all their burials and oils have been one of the few things they found preserved in the tombs--along with honey and gold.
  • The Egyptians also used oils to clear negative emotions after death so they could progress in the afterlife. 
  • Jesus was brought Frankincense and Myrrh when he was born. 
  • In Traditional Chinese Medicine they use oils to move the Qi-body energy, and to promote overall health.

I have always been fascinated with the Egyptians and their culture--they accomplished some pretty amazing things for their day. If these precious oils have been around since the first humans and were used on a son of a God, then I think we should be using them too.

I personally have used essential oils for about 15 years. I started wearing patchouli and sandalwood. They just made me so happy. After years of learning about them, I know understand why I loved them at such a young age. They really were elevating my mood back in high school.I have tried more brands than I can count. Most of my oils have since gone rancid. The carrier oil has spoiled. Doterra doesn't use any carrier oils. They are 100% Pure Therapeutic Grade and they even have a higher standard than organic.

I use the oils daily on my children and myslef. I use them to combat my grief and lift my depression and aid in my anxiety. I use them to prevent colds, heart burn, to aid in the healing of yeast infections, earaches, toothaches, burns, rashes, digestion, infant teething, croup, sleep, and a hundred other ailments. They really have become my go-to product in my home. They really do help with most hings I have come across---but one thing is for sure, you have to be consistent. 

Consistency is key.

You can not use them once and expect help. For example, I had a giant toothache and my gum was super swollen. I couldn't get to a doctor for a few weeks. I needed relief. I began applying Tea Tree/Melaleuca and peeled garlic cloves to my gums about 5 times a day or more. I needed immediate relief and that's what I got. I was willing to do anything. We all now how bad a toothache feels? It's miserable. I had relief within a day and actually the swelling and pain went away within 3 days. I never went to the doctor---I was a poor college student and determined to take care of it on my own!
