If you had asked me a year ago if essential oils were for real I would have probably told you they were a bunch of fru fru, airy fairy, hogwash that only worked if you believed in it.
But over the past year, Liz and I have come to realize that doTERRA Essential Oils have some pretty amazing healing properties.
This page is a collection of some of the testimonials we’ve received about doTERRA Essential Oils.
For starters, I have lost 15 pounds using the Chocolate Trim Shake. One weekday mornings, I get out the little bullet blender and put the following into it:
about half an inch of ice cubes
4 or 5 frozen strawberries
one scoop of doTERRA Chocolate Trim Shake
one drop of doTERRA Peppermint Essential Oil
enough rice or almond milk to fill the blender cup to the top[/list]
I blend it for about a minute and pour it into a tall glass and drink it with a dose of the doTERRA Lifelong Vitality pack (vitamins, omega oils, and other cell building nutrients). After drinking it over the next 10 or 15 minutes, I’m not hungry for 5 or so hours. I’m guessing that’s why I’m losing the weight because I don’t exercise any differently.

First of all… let me tell you that I’m an electrical engineer by degree and license so am by nature VERY SKEPTICAL about woowoo types of things. So when Rachel told me the oils work I said, “Prove it!”
She suggested that I apply a couple of drops of lavender to a 2″ cut that was on my upper arm. I’d had the cut for about a week after I had caught my tool box drawer walking into the garage and it had started to become infected. Of course, I didn’t notice this because it was under my sleeve. Out of sight, out of mind… but I was determined to find some sort of skin cut to try this stuff out on… I REALLY didn’t believe it would work because I thought lavender was on this planet to make girls feel relaxed and make them smell nice.
Well, I was wrong: Within two hours my cut had shrunk to 3/4 of an inch! I couldn’t believe it so I called Rachel to find out what was REALLY in the oil. She said only lavender and asked if I believed yet. I told her yes… I believed in the lavender. But there were actually 51 more doTERRA oils that the jury was still out on.
That was 10 months and a lot of both personal and friends experiences ago. doTERRA oils are really cool. From nipping colds and flu in the bud using Oregano, Lemon, and Frankincense, and clearing my sore throat with On Guard to making sore muscles feel good with Deepblue, to clearing up sinuses with Breathe, to stopping tummy aches with Digestzen and friend’s athlete’s foot with Melaleuca, I’ve come to completely believe in the power of doTERRA essential oils. Trust me, it took me a while to really believe, but when these things started happening to me, I couldn’t deny it any longer!
Thanks to Rachel Jones for introducing me to doTERRA.
