doTERRA Essential Oils {Giveaway}

Today's giveaway is for some essential oils from doTERRA. Deonne is a fellow Babywise mom and lives in my town!

Here is a very simplified short version of what an essential oil is.

Essential oils are taken from plants (seeds, stems, roots, flowers, bark, and more). Essential oils have long been used throughout history. Different plants have differnet abilities and benefits. Many of these have been synthetically created and made by pharmaceutical companies (like Pepto Bismol and IB Profen). 

Essential oils are 100% natural. I love that because it makes me more willing to use it on my children.

Today you will be entering to win an introductory kit, which has lavender, lemon, and peppermint. Shortly after I received my kit to try out, Brinley got a diaper rash. I decided to look and see if any of hte oils I had would work for that. It turns out lavender does (lavender is great for burns--and also sleep). I put a bit on her bottom and it cleared up very quickly. At the same time, Brayden had a cough. The lemon essential oil is supposed to help with that. We tried Vics on the feet, honey, and lemon (not all at the same time). The thing he said helped the best with his cough was the lemon. So our experience with it all has been positive so far!

There are many uses even for just these three essential oils--you can see 101 uses at this post.

  • One entry per comment.
  • Up to seven entries per person.
  • You must fulfill the rules of each entry for each entry to count. If I see the entry is not valid (did not meet entry requirements), I will disqualify your entry. Trust me, I check.
