The Kit That Started It All

The Kit that started it all for us 2 years ago…..

2 years ago I was looking for a way to remove the toxins from our home once and for all and then an email popped into my inbox from someone I respected telling me about their new essential oil kit.

I took the plunge and quickly followed suit. I was amazed. Firstly at how incredible they smelt and secondly how they made me feel in an instant. All I had to do was whip the lid off the bottle, take a whiff and I felt renewed or relaxed. Third- they transformed our house in such a beautiful way. In the bin went the last of our conventional cleaning products and personal care products and we said hello to better immune systems, healthier lungs and happier hormones.

These were the oils that were in that first kit of ours and I want them to be yours too-

Lemon: Purifies the air, antibacterial, detoxes the body, supports the liver, kills off cold sores and sore throats, uplifts moods, great all round cleaner, removes grease and sticky residue.

Peppermint: Invigorates, assists digestion, clears sinus congestion, increases stamina and mental alertness and tastes fantastic added to brownies! Reduces mental stress, Induces a state of relaxation and regeneration, Alleviates anxiety and headaches, Calming effect on the central nervous system, Reduces blood pressure, Decreases pain, Decreases depression levels, Helps with insomnia. Alleviates fever and hot flushes.

Lavender: Think: all things calming. Incredible added to bathwater or your shower, rubbed on the bottom of the feet before bed, soothes headaches, amazing burn and sunburn relief, antihistamine and antiseptic wound healer, eczema and psoriasis relief.

Frankincense: We call this: God In A Bottle! When in doubt, use Frank! Excellent diffused for brain function and improved memory, assists the body in healing cuts, bruises, scars, apply to fine lines and wrinkles, improves concentration mood and lifts depression, fantastic anti-inflammatory for the whole body as well as a renowned immune system support. This beauty is worth it’s weight in gold. Can be used internally for a whole body affect or topically on the skin for a localised affect. Cannot live without this oil.

Oregano: 1 drop daily assists in healthy immune function, high in antioxidants, supports healthy digestion, kills bacteria and removes infection, great cold and flu agent and tastes great when you add a drop to your savoury meals!

Tea Tree (Maleluca): Protects against environmental and seasonal threats. Use a drop in your facial cleanser, treat ear infections, athletes foot, anything fungal, bites and stings. Antibacterial and anti parasitic.

Easy Air: Perfect for chest congestion, hay fever and cold and flu season. Opens up the airways and is fantastic for asthmatics as it relaxes the lungs allowing more oxygen to flow.

OnGuard: Protective blend! Scientifically proven to rid cold and flus. Preventative medication. High in antioxidants. Really great to travel with. DoTERRA add OnGuard to their home products, including: toothpaste, hand wash, cleaner concentrate, laundry liquid, etc. Prevents cross contamination, kills bacteria both in the air and on surfaces. Fantastic all round cleaner and sanitiser for both surfaces like the kitchen bench and cutting boards as well as being used on the body.

Deep Blue: Use topically to ease muscular and joint pain and inflammation. Apply before and after exercise and before bed (a personal favourite ritual of mine). Creaky knees, hips, lower back? Rub this on several times a day. Has an affect similar to Nurofen (and stronger) in that its a pain relief and anti inflammatory agent.

DigestZen: The name says it all 🙂 Ease bloating, nausea, heartburn, food poisoning, constipation and digestive discomfort. Apply topically to the belly or sip in water! Even relieves sinus congestion when rubbed on the bridge of the nose.
