Essential oils. My new love. I’ve played with the essential oil samples at Whole Foods and was never that impressed…then I discovered the good stuff. My friend Sarah (whom I now refer to as the “neighborhood medicine woman”) introduced me by doctoring my every issue with her oil kit. I’ve been stunned at their effect on headaches, breakouts, cramps, muscle aches, mood, and sleep. I figured they were the sort of subtle thing that would only “work” on a clean, healthy body and not so noticeable on one filled with cheeseburgers but I’ve had a heap of successful reviews from friends and family that I’ve eagerly oiled-up to remedy a variety of symptoms. Curious? Introducing, DoTerra. These fabulous oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade as in, no fillers, chemicals or pesticides. My dad is a huge fan of oregano oil and uses it every time he feels like he’s getting sick. A couple drops straight back in his throat and he swears his sore throat is cured. Last time he visited I challenged him to try the DoTerra version and he was blown away. Pure oregano oil without any carrier is powerful stuff. I’ve loved using it for it’s antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, and antiparasitic properties, one drop in my green juice is plenty! On another note, I had tried putting other brands in my salads or juices before and it completely ruined them which is not the case here. Want to try it? I’m thrilled to say I’ve just become an affiliate for DoTerra (mostly to get good deals for myself but I’m excited to share too ;)) and I’m giving away one 15 ml bottle.
