A year ago Scott and I were introduced to doTERRA Essential Oils, which are Certified Pure essential oils. We have had oils in our Center, but never found such a complete physical and emotional experience as these oils. Some of the oils work great for pain, such as Deep Blue or White fir. However, what really got our attention was the oils that effected our moods and emotional health of our family.
Scott and I started with the Wild Orange and citrus oil blends, like Elevation, citrus bliss. We both found them to be uplifting. When we looked into the oils, we found Citrus can be very uplifting, which creates a anti-Anxiety effect. With Elevation, it packs some oils like Sandalwood and Ylang Ylang that can be very relaxing.
We were also very surprised Reid our son, who is Autistic, when introduced to some of the oils fell in love with them. He loves the different smells. The one that interested us the most was his favorite, it was Ylang Ylang. He thought it smells like candy. To me it just smells like a sweet flower. We were pleasantly surprised at the reaction Reid had to it. He became calmer, which is not his normal state, he is a very energetic boy to say the least. So we went online to a great Website doTERRA offers called EverythingEssentials.com.
We read Antidepressant, Antiseptic, Antispasmodic, and used as a Sedative. It is a calming and relaxing oil. We read that it is good to use on your feet before bed. We tried this with Reid that night. We always do massage and Reiki to help calm Reid to go to sleep, but even with that it can take up to 30 min for him to fall asleep. The night we gave him Ylang Ylang, he was asleep within 10 minutes. We thought maybe it was a fluke, so tried and the rest of the week and every night he would fall asleep so easily.
Scott and I decided to try it ourselves. Now Scott lucky guy doesn’t usually have trouble sleeping, he found it to help him sleep more sound and feel more rested when he awoke. Now for myself, I am like Reid it can take me a few to get to sleep, and my struggle is usually with waking up like 3am and not being able to go back to sleep. From the first night I tried Ylang Ylang, I slept through the night and I too feel completely rested, and in a better mood.
This is one example of Essential oils helping mood. In future post I will talk more about other oils we have found that have helped many things from Lavender for bee stings and mosquito bites or Onguard blend for Flu or colds.
Scott and I are available to chat with anyone at our Center about doTERRA oils and how they can help you.
We also have Free classes twice a month on the oils and learning what they can do and how you can use them.
