Needing more support? Check out this Sinus Steamer.
Give our Steam Cup a try, you will be amazed how it opens chest and stuffy nasal passages. It is also great for a nagging cough.
Close your eyes, its mentholy! 😊 I also like to replace oregano with breathe oil in the above recipe, unless it’s a really deep chest cough, then you want the antiviral properties.
This works INSTANTLY!
Speaking of Oregano, when we are down, I also apply oregano and on guard to our feet bottoms often for their amazing natural antiviral and antibacterial properties.
You can make up a roller of the following oils and kick some COOTIES before they make your family feel BAD! Apply often to feet bottoms and feel better quickly.
Do you all do fall sports at your house? Or suffer from aches and pains chronically?
This is definitely a doTERRA favorite......
Sometimes, fall can bring some extra STRESS with the holidays and work stresses......UGH!
Do not worry, we have an oil for that!
Fall means back to school, earlier bedtimes and extra rest to promote good immunity! If you aren’t sleeping, you are healing, restoring or re-builiding your body.
My go to for our 4 children is balance, serenity and serenity softgels. They fall asleep quicker, and they get better rest! I have a griner, a yeller, a thrasher and a buzzer, they all can tell a difference when we run out of serenity softgels. Mommy can tell who hasn’t taken their’s when she tucks them in.
I haven’t ever slept as good as I do with serenity and balance in my diffuser and serenity softgels internally!
Depriving your body of sleep has been associated with many health risks and places a tremendous burden on virtually every organ system in your body! The average American does NOT get enough sleep!
Lack of adequate sleep affects our ability to lose or maintain a healthy weight; influences how we feel, learn, and behave; and negatively impacts our cardiovascular health and overall wellness. The less sleep you get, the less opportunity you give your body to heal and prepare itself for the following day, reducing overall quality of life.
In other words, SLEEP IS IMPORTANT!!!!! :)
Essential oils like Lavender and Bergamot are rich in linalool and linalyl acetate, compounds that have well-known relaxing properties. These oils can be diffused aromatically in the bedroom to create a calming and peaceful environment, perfect for getting a good night’s sleep. They can also be used topically and taken internally to calm the nervous system, promote relaxation, and lead to a restful sleep.
Try placing two to four drops of Lavender or Bergamot essential oil in a warm, herbal tea (Chamomile, Lemongrass, etc.), or another favorite uncaffeinated beverage about 30 minutes before going to bed, or add two to four drops of Lavender into an empty capsule and swallow about 30 minutes before bed.
