I’ve been using essential oils since the late-1990’s, but I didn’t really learn much about them until a friend introduced me to my favorite brand back in 2012. While I’m not a huge salesperson, I have done quite a bit of training and have discovered I enjoy teaching classes on essential oil use! I realized through research that the only oils I trust to ingest or use full-strength topically or aromatically are the ones I use, because they are tested. I still use other brands in my homemade hot-processed soaps (since the hot cook will degrade the oil quite a bit) but I only will use doTERRA if I’m going to be inhaling it, wearing it or swallowing it!
While I love to talk about essential oils and how they’ve changed my life (and my family’s lives) there is just too much information to cover in one post, or even a few. I’ve decided to share a weekly testimony about how a particular essential oil or product has affected me personally, or someone I’m close to.
This week’s highlight is…drum roll…OnGuard+ Softgels. While OnGuard also comes in an oil blend form that can be taken orally (more on that later) I much prefer to purchase my blends in softgel form if I plan to ingest. OnGuard+ is just one of several softgels available and I do love them all! But back to OnGuard+…
It’s July 1st and I haven’t been sick since February! That’s a big deal for me, especially since I traveled out of state in April. (I used OnGuard+ softgels religiously before, during and after my trip to stay well!) I just finished doing a play for our local community theater and the rehearsal schedule was very intense the last week (several nights we were out till 11pm or later) and I started feeling run down. I started taking OnGuard+ softgels twice a day and made sure not to forget to take my LLV vitamins as well. I also used some Breathe on my chest and diffused it alternating with OG at night. Other than being a little fatigued, I am good…whatever was trying to get to me is gone.
So there you have it, one testimony of many I have and will share in due time. 🙂
