Making memories one day at a time.......and then I write about it.

When ever I use doTERRA's (doe tear uh) essential oils I am always amazed at how well they work.  It seems too good to be true ya know?  Those of  you that use these oils know what I am talking about.

Mr. J has been home this week from school.  Horrid cough, goopy nose, etc.  Not fun.  The other night at 2:30 AM he woke up crying.  His ear hurt.  As a mother, having a little one wake you up in the middle of the night with something like this can be frustrating.  How to get a little one through the night until you can get to the doctor in the morning.  Not anymore!

I took Mr. J and started applying doTERRA's essential oils on him.  I used Melaleuca and Helichrysum.  After I rubbed these oils around his ear inside and out, I put a few drops of Melaleuca on a small cotton ball and placed it in Mr. J's ear. (I also placed 2 drops of onion oil in his ear).  I then took a heating rice pillow on his ear.  After about 15 minutes Mr. J was ready to go back to his bed.  His ear had stopped hurting and he slept through the night.

No more earache still two days later. 

During the day I've been applying Melaleuca, Lavender, Breathe, Frankincense, and On Guard on the bottoms of Mr. J's feet.  It's been less than a week and the gooky nose is gone and the cough is almost cleared up.

The Native's tease me and say it is my snake oil and call me a witch doctor. I immediately think of the scene in Princess Bride, "I'm not a witch I'm your wife"!


  1. Ahahahah! love this movie! I'm reading the book right now too :D

  2. I LOVE that scene!

    My MIL signed up with doTERRA just so she can get them at a discount and share her discount with her family.

  3. Natural is best isn't it! Loved the clip :-)

  4. Also- what do you have for a stuffy nose/sore throught?? I'm getting sick again... -_- We probably have the oils we just don't know which ones to use... :D

  5. You are always welcome to come rub oil all over my feet and put it under my nose and maybe a little on the shoulders - any old time. Just thinking about it, I notice how very sore and achy all my little muscles are.

  6. Jess, I do too! An all time favorite.

    Hanna, Are you loving the book? I liked it even more than the movie and that is saying a lot!

    Chastina, You will love using the oils. Have your mother in law get you the facial products. Love love love them!

    Jenni, Exactly! Natural is best and when I am already having health problems I don't want to complicate things more by putting foulness in my body. :D

    Hanna, Did the OnGuard help?

    Kristen, You bet! I'll be right over. ;)


Go know ya wanna comment!
