Just when I thought that the flu season was over and getting rid of my hay fever, I got the worst flu and my throat was really bad. I had also horrible ear ache, even though my ear was complitely healthy. My doctor forgot to give me any meds, but not to worry I had some of my own! I used doTerra’s Breath essential oil blend in my diffuser, that has peppermint, eucalyptus, lemon and melaleuca in it. Internally I used (and still use until I’m 100%) doTerra’s Onguard capsules, that improve immune defence.
For the skin, I found this great recipe (you can mix all of these things into a 10 ml glass roller bottle):
1 drop of doTerra’s Frankincense oil
1 drop of doTerra’s Oregano oil
2 drops of doTerra’s Onguard oil
2 drops of doTerra’s Melaleuca oil (tea tree oil)
Mix fractionated coconut oil to the rest of the bottle or some other carrier oil.
Now is your change to try a diffuser for your essential oils if you have ever wanted one or give it as a gift for your friend. Essential oils work a lot better diffusing them instead of burning. doTerra’s Christmas diffuser is made of lava rock and beechwood. This diffuser doesn’t need water or electricity, so it’s good for travelling also. There is two of them in a pack! You can order them as long as they have it in stock. Move quickly, Christmas products usually fly off from shelf. 25 euros/pack
I have found a wonderful essential oil to my collection, cypress! For me it works as an addition to the treatment for my back. I love my peppermint too, but especially during night-time, cypress is great.
adds vitality and calms emotions
is great for runners and people who are on their feet a lot
I thought about giving tips this week for natural pain relief and boosting your immune system. Essential oils are very strong, that’s why you should be very careful with them. Make sure that the essential oils that you use are safe to use internally. 37 essential oils from doTerra can be used internally at the moment. Couple of drops go a long way!
You can mix essential oils to your smoothies or tea or add them to veggie capsules. Make sure you get your veggies capsules from a trusted place. Veggie capsules can be taken couple of times a day. doTerra recommends for an adult 12-24 drops of essential oils in 24 hours/ 2-4 drops at a time. You can always also apply the essential oils on to your skin diluted with carrier oil. I use the essential oils mostly like that.

I get often asked if I use essential oils for my animals. I have three cats, that I show sometimes. The answer is cautious yes. I share about it more on my vlog. I have written also a blog about it earlier. A lot of people use essential oils also for their dogs and horses.
