I get a lot of questions about essential oils - where to get them, how to use them, are they worth the hype? So I figured I’d start adding more oily information into this. First of all, they’re 100% worth the hype. In a couple of months, I’ll have been a “user” for five years. FIVE years! I can’t even imagine my life without them anymore. (Okay, that sounds a little dramatic, but I’ve replaced so many every day products with oils, I don’t even know what I’d do!)
Just laying it out in the open, I’m an Independent Wellness Advocate with DoTERRA. I have been since I started my oil journey back in 2014. All of the oils I reference, you can purchase here, through DoTERRA. Nowadays, there are SO many alternatives out there; I only ask that, should you use a different brand, you do your research. Not all oils are created equal!! If you’re going to use them internally, make sure the brand you’re using is truly safe and that you’re spending your money on real, pure, 100% natural essential oils. (Remember kids, “you get what you pay for.”) Now, with that out of the way…
One of the first things I replaced with oils is my daily perfumes. There’s a ton of research out there on the dangers of using synthetic fragrances… they’re full of hormone disrupters, carcinogens, the list goes on and on. It’s not pretty.
Bergamot is my go-to for an every day scent. It’s got this amazing clean, citrusy, woodsy smell, and I can’t get enough of it. But every once in a while, I switch it up and create my own blends. My favourite lately is:
7 drops Grapefruit
5 drops Elevation
11 drops Balance
11 drops Bergamot
Add all of the above to a 5 ML roller bottle from Amazon, top it off with some fractionated coconut oil and roll it on. So. Good.
You can buy any or all of the oils above here: https://www.doterra.com/US/en/site/andreatrobertson
