Spring Cleaning: Your Medicine Cabinet (Part 1)

I have seen medicine save lives and improve quality of life.  However, we use it far too much for the day in, day out ailments that we have.  Consider if it might be right for you to try a more natural alternative.  I do not make any money off doTERRA products, but am just providing you with information from a trusted source who will be a guest writer today (I have known Jenny since childhood and have worked with her in ministry as well as in a professional health setting).

Hello, friends and fellow health-enthusiasts! My name is Jenny Robeson, and I am honored to be a contributor to this blog!

As a mom of 3 beautiful children, that also makes me a full-time “nurse” in my home. Like
other moms, I treat daily problems like cuts/scrapes/swollen bumps/bug bites and yearly
issues like the dreaded stomach bug, colds, seasonal allergies and strep throat (just to name a
few!). As the full-time Director of Children’s Ministries at our church and the wife of a Youth
Pastor, I also see and hear plenty of stories of children and teenagers being medicated at very
young ages to treat everything from ADD to stress and anxiety. We are a culture that pays
to ingest LOTS of synthetic over-the-counter and prescription drugs AND many times we are
only masking the symptoms of a bigger issue or medicating side effects to other medications!
Can anyone relate?? 4 TRILLION dollars spent on healthcare in this country alone this past
year…..and are we actually healthier because of it?

For one year, I have been empowering and educating myself on using Essential Oils in place
of practically everything in my Medicine Cabinet. Did you know that you can replace all the
medicine in your cabinet with essential oils?? doTERRA has an answer for the most common,
everyday ailments and many oils can be used for more serious issues. They provide your body
with the tools it needs to heal naturally by working at a cellular level to restore your body to
its’ optimum health! doTERRA Essential Oils are literally God’s Medicine Cabinet to us! I joke
about how doTERRA can take the credit for the amazing distilling techniques they use, but God
gets the credit for the actual product! These are 100% natural, beyond-organic plant oils
from all over the world. doTERRA is the only essential oil company currently who can claim
CPTG (Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade) which means the oils can be used medicinally and be
taken internally! Since they are totally pure and nothing is added to the oils, they are extremely
powerful and effective. For example, our household of 5 did not get a single full-blown cold
this past Fall/Winter, we never caught the stomach bug or any other flu virus, I was able to
rid myself of Strep Throat in less than 48 hours and avoid the doctor without any help from
antibiotics and my husband was able to finally kick his seasonal allergies in the butt this year
using doTERRA’s TriEase oil capsules! Talk about feeling empowered!!

Essential oils can be used in 3 different ways:

• AROMATIC – Diffuse in a room to purify the air or to enhance mood, drop into a bath or
humidifier, or cup in hands and breathe in deeply.
• TOPICAL – Apply directly to skin for topical therapy. Bottoms of the feet are the most
porous and the best way to get your oils into the bloodstream quickly! My kids love it!
• INTERNAL – Put drops of oil into your water, or take in capsule form

Some of my favorite uses in our house:

• To ward off colds/viruses quickly…try On Guard (my favorite antibiotic!)
• Instead of nasal decongestant or cough medicine…try Breathe
• Instead of ointments for scrapes, bumps, burns, bug bites or sleep-aid pills…try Lavender
• Instead of upset stomach, constipation or heartburn medicine…try DigestZen
• For seasonal allergies…….try a blend of Lavendar, Lemon and Peppermint in water or the TriEase capsules
• For headaches or migraines…..try Lavendar and Peppermint or Past Tense
• For getting rid of a virus or infection……try Oregano (you may smell like a pizza for a day or so, but hey, it is also a very powerful antibiotic!)

This is just a small sampling of what essential oils can do for you and your family. A good online
resource for helpful information on essential oils and their uses for alleviating health issues can
be found at www.everythingessential.me.

To learn more about dōTERRA and how essential oils can empower your life, you can email Jenny directly at jennyrobeson@gmail.com or visit her doTERRA website at www.mydoterra.com/jennyrobeson. If you decide you would like to purchase some oils, let me know and I will tell you how to set up a wholesale membership account so that you don’t have to pay full retail price! Blessings to you all!
