submitted by Heather V. – My husband and I caught some sort of nasty stomach virus. It. Was. Awful! For three days every twenty minutes we were running for the toilet. I am usually a skeptic when it comes to holistic approaches, but I was desperate to try anything. Graciously, Melissa dropped off a sample of doTerra DigestZen and OnGuard blended, and I rubbed it in my feet. As the day progressed I started feeling a little braver so in rubbed it on my stomach. After about 4 hours after my first drops, i was noticeably better! I ended up putting more on my feet and stomach and even drinking some before bed. When I woke up I felt like a new person! No more gurgling stomach, no more sharp pains, no more symptoms. My husband however, was even more skeptical than I was do he didn’t take any oil. He woke up and ran to the bathroom. When he got out, he asked me to put some on his feet and in his water! Since the oil, we are both doing a lot better! Thank you Melissa!
submitted by Denise C. - I just tried the Deep Blue on my bad knee. It kills me whenever the weather is going to change. The relief was instant and almost complete. I don’t think Vicodin works that well and my 800 mg Ibuprofen doesn’t come close.
submitted by Teresa C. - Where do I begin??? Lol! I took before pictures of my 13 year old’s eczema. I expect it to be fully clear by next week, but overnight the itching stopped and looked remarkably better the next day. I used Melaleuca, Lavender and Frankincense. My daughter is taking Digestzen every night now to help her with constipation. Deep blue melts my back pain away and I was able to walk all day with the school field trip and to Disney World with no pain! Not even the next day! Lavender puts us all in a deep sleep in minutes.
Lavender/Lemon/Peppermint – Allergy Remedy
submitted by Candace G - I have several allergies: Seasonal, animal, environmental, etc. This of course comes with sneezing, itching, and sinus inflammation reactions. As a child, I would get bronchitis twice a year, like clockwork, once at the start of spring, and again at the start of fall. I still do if I’m not consistent on my allergy medicine.
I have tried every prescription and OTC allergy medicine. One makes me jittery, another makes my hair fall out, and the rest just don’t work that well. Then there are the eye drops! Most of these work OK for a while, but you can only use them so many times on a day.
I’m not a huge fan of the price tag these medicines carry, either. Most of the time, your looking at $1 a dose. Times that by 4 people in our house with allergies, and your looking at $120 a month.<
Last Saturday, my children, who had been couped up all week due to colds, wanted to go to an Easter egg hunt. It was 60° with a slight breeze at the start of Spring. I just KNEW I was going to sneeze my head off!
I had seen the Homemade Allergy Remedy using essentials oils and thought, “If it doesn’t work, I can always take a pill.”. What a better day than this to try it? So, I grabbed my water bottle, filled it with two cups of cold water, and added ~3 drops each of Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint. I sipped this before I left and during my 30 minute drive to the Easter Egg hunt.
I didn’t sneeze, not even once. My eyes weren’t even itchy, but I was still skeptical. “Maybe the pollen level isn’t that high, today.” (It was listed as Mild that day.) I went to the discount produce store to test my theory. There were several flats of strawberries beginning to mold. Still, I had not had a reaction. “OK, so maybe it does work.” That’s when I got brave.
A couple of weeks ago, my lovely parents came to visit for my daughter’s birthday. They also brought with them a bag that my sister had sent along to me. She has cats, and I am extremely allergic to cats. Within 5 minutes of encountering cat hair, I become a red-eyed, snot-nosed, sneezing mess.
I was dreading opening the bag. I had brought it in from my parent’s car, and sneezed three times in the process. I had moved it and sneezed again. I knew that I had to go through it, armed with my new found remedy, I dug in. Nothing. Not a single sneeze nor red itchy eyes. I definitely saw cat hairs, but no reaction! I went an entire day without sneezing.
On Sunday, I only sneezed once, shortly after waking. After taking the oils internally, I was fine the rest of the day. Now, I’m certain that this really works!
I love knowing that I can take more if it seems the effects are wearing off. I suggest making a 10 day supply (30 drops of each) for fast relief. If you don’t like the taste, you can take them in a gel cap. If your eyes are feeling itchy, you can dab the mixture on your temples for quick relief! I hope this helps you as much as it has helped me!
