Photo Challenge

doTERRA is doing a photo challenge this month. It's fun. Each day they post a picture with a theme on Instagram. Some of the themes have Daily Routine, Lavender, In My Car, In My Bag, and more. doTERRA then picks a winner from those who post a picture that best fits the theme. It's been fun to see the winners and how other people use their essential oils. I haven't posted a picture yet...well, until today.

Today's theme was Nature. I knew I had to post a picture because there are two essential oil blends
that have allowed me to enjoy nature again. Since I've moved to Tennessee I've had bouts with sinus troubles and seasonal allergies. I was on prescription medication to help. I felt awful from the allergies and then felt even worse because of the meds. I even had one of the allergy drugs cause me to have mood swings. I was so over it, but didn't know what to do to relieve my allergy symptoms without drugs. And then I came across the "Allergy Shooter" (2 drops of Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint essential oils in 2 ounces of water). I was super skeptical that this little concoction could be my answer.  All doubts were out the door within 5 minutes. It worked and it didn't have any side effects. I was in heaven! And just when I didn't think it could better, doTERRA came out with TriEase softgels. It's the Allergy Shooter in a softgel. It makes it so convenient! It works better Benadryl and can work for most allergic reactions (should not replace an EPI pen for those with major allergic reactions).

I am a magnet...nope, not a chick magnet...an insect magnet. My blood type is an insect's dream buffet apparently (yep, your blood type does have an effect...read about it here). And when I get a bug bite, they welt to the size of grapefruits. That is not attractive in any way and is very uncomfortable. I have a solution for insect bites using essential oils, but prevention is always best! And now I have the perfect blend to keep those pesky blood suckers away from me...TerraShield! It's an awesome blend that only requires a couple drops on me and I'm free to rome the outdoors.

With TriEase and TerraShield I can enjoy nature again. And this makes me so happy! I thoroughly enjoy walking in the park and picnics and the pool and trails and well, you get it. Nature and I have been reunited and it feels so good!
