I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Mildred, a mom on a mission to help others bring natural solutions into their home and empower them to use essential oils safely and effectively.
My natural health journey began when I became a mom and realized the responsibility I had in being the caretaker of my children. I wanted my kids to thrive both in mind and body and I was determined to feed them the best food. When I was pregnant with my first child, I ate collard greens for weeks to make sure she had healthy amounts of folic acid to start her life. I started with the book What to Expect When You Are Expecting and then sought out other books and advice from other moms for the healthiest living practices. We started eating more vegetables and grass-fed beef. And then I made my own yogurt, kefir and then kombucha. I even make my own kimchi.
I wanted my children to get exposure to nutritious food and did my research on gut health and organic vegetables.
There was something missing, though, which was medicines. When my children had minor ailments and sickness, there was nothing organic. And going to the doctor only led me to antibiotics or nothing at all (my doctors saying, “there’s nothing we can do about a virus.”)
It was then that my friend Jane introduced me to doTerra essential oils and I discovered a safe, effective, and affordable way to support my family’s health and wellness, remove toxins from our home, and to my surprise, make a little money on the side.
I’m not a doctor or an expert. I’m a mom who may be a few years further down the path than you, but it brings me joy to share with you what my friend shared with me a few years ago. The path to more natural health and toxin-free living is an exciting journey to begin, so let’s get started!
What are Essential Oils?
- safe, affordable way to support your family’s physical and emotional wellness
- can be used for cooking, cleaning, beauty treatment and health-care—even on pets
- quality can vary widely depending on geographic location and botanical species—even the time of day, season, method & duration of distillation, year grown, and the weather
Not all essential oil companies are alike. I wrote an article (four minute read) on why doTERRA, but here’s the ADHD summary:
- doTERRA is the only brand whose quality is high enough to encourage ingestion of their oils
- doTERRA’s reputation, unlike Young Living, is impeccable
Three Ways To Use
Aromatic usage has been shown to improve your mood, which provides countless benefits. Wake up in the morning with more vitality, treat depression, stay productive throughout the day, reduce stress, boost your energy through a tough workout, improve sleep quality, and even to help treat cancer.
Where Do I Start?
You can start with either your custom selection of single essential oils and build your own collection, or go with one of doTerra’s carefully-curated collections. Still not sure? I’ve listed the most popular single oils and collections below.
