Learn More About Essential Oils From doTERRA - Review & Giveaway! {10/31}

I've always been interested in essential oils, but have never taken the opportunity to explore their uses or read up on their benefits. Up until now I had no experience using them, but just after a week I'm hooked! I LOVE these oils! I've used them every day since they came in the mail, and I fully intend to get more!

doTERRA is a great company that produces high quality essential oils. Did you know that not all essential oils are made the same? Many companies that claim to produce therapeutic grade essential oils are in fact using synthetic chemicals! However, at doTERRA, the essential oils are guaranteed to be 100% pure, natural essential oils with no trace of synthetic chemicals: Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade.

I was given two oils to review: lemon and lavender. I was really excited about both because I am really interested in natural household cleaning, and I have been really stressed out lately and I know that lavender has some great properties to combat stress. 

Lemon has some amazing properties. I just love the way that lemons smell! In an effort to help lose weight and live healthier I've been drinking a lot of lemon water. Turns out you can use Lemon essential oil the same way! It works great as a detox and body cleanser! 

Here are my favorite ways to use my Lemon essential oil: 

Place a few drops of the Lemon oil on your forearm, then rub your forearms together. Hold your arms up and give them a big whiff! MMM! Really perks you up! (I like to do this when I'm falling asleep doing homework ;) ) 

The other way I have enjoyed using my Lemon oil this week is by using it as a disinfectant and air purifier. Add a few drops to a spray bottle with a cup of water, give it a shake and spray! I've been walking around the house spraying it on door knobs and remote controls. You wouldn't believe how strong just 3 drops can smell! 

According to doTERRA, Lavender is the "Swiss Army Knife" of essential oils. It has so many uses! If you are interested in just trying one oil to see if you like it I recommend this one. Lavender is calming and relieves stress, it can relieve cat allergies, acne, scars, boost the immune system while fighting infection... the list goes on! 

My favorite way for using Lavender essential oil this week? doTERRA recommends putting a few drops of Lavender on the back of your hands and on the tips of your hair, creating a calming atmosphere that surrounds you. This will turn you into a walking diffuser, with the potential to calm the situation around you. Perfect for a stressful  meeting with your boss, right?? 

Aren't essential oils great? There are so many ways you can incorporate them into your daily routine. A lot of what I learned about them came from this Free E-Course on Essential Oils
