"As a massage therapist and educator, I have applied essential oils to hundreds of people including children, adults, and senior citizens with great results. Unfortunately, attempts to apply oils to my husband resulted in a severe skin reaction causing him to break out in small bumps that would itch and scab over. I was working as a distributor for another essential oil company and they told me he must be "defective" or "toxic" in some way, and I resigned myself to the fact that he could not benefit from using essential oils. I was then introduced to dōTERRA's Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils by a trusted friend, and I decided to carefully give them a try on my husband. We applied a small amount of oregano, which would normally cause a severe reaction, to his back before he went to bed, and in the morning he was fine. Encouraged, we applied dōTERRA's oregano, thyme, basil, cypress, marjoram, peppermint, and Balance blend for a second night, and he had no uncomfortable reaction as he had using the other company's oils. This is very encouraging for both of us and we plan to continue using dōTERRA's oils from now on.
Thank you, dōTERRA, for giving us pure essential oil alternatives that are safe, effective, and smell so wonderful too!"

"I am an avid mountain biker and am constantly trying to keep my flexible backpack water flask and drinking tube free of mold and other yucky residue for my next ride. I tried adding three or so drops of dōTERRA lemon essential oil to my water before a recent ride and, not only did it add a refreshing lemon twist, my flask smelled lemon fresh the next time I rode. I since tried a drop or two of peppermint oil on days I need a little pick-me-up and it also calms my digestion of sports bars and drinks that sometime upset my stomach during rides."
