Do you remember your Mammy’s Medicine Cabinet ? (not to be confused with the hostess drinks trolley). It conjures up some great memories for me, especially the flat Lucozade and tea with toast. One thing that is missing is that lovely kiss on the forehead too!
But seriously while many of you probably still use some of the stuff in Mammy’s cabinet, there are a growing number of mums and dads who are tackling everyday family health issues in a different way. What I love about tackling my family’s health issues by using essential oils is that you can’t really get it wrong, and I know this might sound like a power trip, but I do feel happy that I can perhaps control an ailment before it goes too far down the road and I end up calling the doctor.
I’ve pulled out five of my top family oils that I have used for the past few months, and I can stand by these and actually admit they helped me through some tough situations.
- Settling stomachs (Peppermint)
- Soothing grazes (Melaleuca – not to be confused with the honey)
- Relief from ear ache (Melaleuca)
- Reducing coughing and sniffles at night through diffusing (Breathe Blend and Peppermint and Onguard Blend)
- Keeping the immune system in check once we are over the worst (Onguard Blend)
I’m in the middle of tackling some flu symptoms at the moment too, so the Onguard blend with it’s strong mix of clove, cinnamon, orange, eucalyptus and rosemary is my staple.
In terms of cost? I wish I invested in the Family Physician kit, but when I started using doTERRA products, I wasn’t 100% confident that I needed them (I was wrong).
So I bought the above five 15 mil bottles for 139 euro in total (add 25% on that price if you don’t sign up for a wholesale account). In hindsight, I wish I’d purchased the kit you get 10 oils in 5 mil bottles at 129.15 euro. And if I purchased it when I created my wholesale account I would have saved on my enrolment fee too!
Included in the kit:
doTERRA On Guard®
If like me you decide to try one or two, depending on your family needs you can do that too, and slowly build your own confidence when using these oils. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
