allie1I am quickly learning to really appreciate Lavender Oil.  This morning, I went into my seven year old daughter’s room.    She looked up at me with tears in her eyes and said that she had hardly slept all night.  I could tell that she wasn’t feeling very well so, I pulled out my doTerra oils.  I put a drop of Lavender Oil on the bottom of each foot.  I also put a drop of OnGuard on each foot to help her fight whatever she is coming down with.  I checked on her a few minutes later and she was sleeping soundly.  Before, I began investigating Essential Oils I would have said I am sorry and just put her back to bed.  She seemed to feel very comforted that I did something and she did fall asleep very quickly.   The National Library of Medicine cites several case studies regarding Lavender and say it does seem to promote sleep.  They do say that more scientific studies are needed before this can be conclusive.    The night I used Lavender Oil on my children everyone in the house slept soundly including my two year old who usually likes to wake me up very early in the morning.  One of my friends claims that she was sleeping horribly before she started using Lavender Oil and now she sleeps very well.  I loved knowing that I had something so natural, pure and safe to help my daughter this morning.

I had never thought much about Essential Oils and I am definitely not into multi-level marketing. My brother recently became involved in doTerra and has begun using the different oils for his family and handing them to us for different situations. I have never really been into holistic medicines and I tend to just go to the doctor or use over the counter medicines for whatever ails my family. But, my 5 year old fell off a bar stool and had a goose egg on his forehead that stood out about an inch and a half. We had a family gathering that evening and my brother put the doTerra Lavender Oil on the bruise. I was amazed the next day to see that the bump was very light colored and not raised at all. I had no idea that an oil could make such a difference. I have since seen essential oils used in many different situations with amazing results. I am now in the process of learning more about these essential oils and trying to find more uses for them. If you are interested in essential oils and would like learn more about them please join me on my journey to find as many practical uses for these oils as possible. This website is not intended to take the place of advice from a doctor or physician.  If you are a mom looking for a home based business opportunity and would love to try essential oils as well now is a great time to get your foot in the door.  DoTerra is a young fast growing company and I am excited to help you be successful. If you are just interested in using the doTerra essential oils and other products for yourself and your family I can help you do that as well.

My Experiences with Lavender:

My 5 year old fell off a bar stool and had a bruise that stood out about an inch and a half.  My brother put Lavender Oil on the bruise and the color was very light and it was not raised at all by the next day.

My brother put Lavender oil on his sons burned fingers that other burn remedies did not sooth and he was comforted almost immediately.

My children claim that they sleep a lot better when I put this on their feet.  I think they enjoy the foot rub as much as the good night’s sleep!

A friend says that she was sleeping horribly before she began using lavender oil.  She loves it!

I would like to develop a directory of sucesses people have had using this oil.  Please Leave Comments about your own experiences with this essential oil!
