Jenni Wilson: You are so welcome! It's my pleasure.
doTERRA: This is a very exciting topic that I am ready to talk about because I think there are some products that should just be part of everyday life, and I want to really go and dive deep. So first off is Frankincense. Why is Frankincense an oil that is so popular to have in your daily routine?
Jenni: Well, I love Frankincense. For me, it's one of my core oils that I use regularly. I personally have some genetic issues and risks in my family.
So as I learned more about how Frankincense helps strengthen cell function, it became a priority for me to use it on a daily basis. I learned that it just helps your cells communicate more effectively and then everything works better. So I really love that for supporting my vitality and longevity. And if I forget to use it topically, I know I'm getting it in my Lifelong Vitality supplements.
doTERRA: Absolutely. And that leads us perfectly into my next question, which is the Lifelong Vitality supplements. Why is it so important to be consistent when you're taking those supplements?
Jenni: That is a good question. So when I first found doTERRA, which was 13 years ago, I had already been researching supplements. And I had realized that a lot of synthetics are put in many supplements that are on the market and also fillers and impure ingredients. And I had just finished a master herbalist program, and I was really looking for plant-based solutions and nutritional support, and I was also looking for antioxidant power.
So I was researching that quite a bit, and I realized as I was learning about essential oils, that the oils have antioxidants as well. And when I looked at that and the antioxidant, the Alpha CRS+ that's in there, I was so impressed about the purity of the ingredients and the power of those ingredients and the fact that they combined some essential oils right in the omega oils supplements. So I had not seen that before and I was so impressed.
So that was the very first thing that I purchased from doTERRA. And the supplements are what got me hooked on doTERRA products because they work so well. So I love taking them because they help me with energy and with my immunity. So I just I won't stop taking those because I really feel like they help support that vitality and longevity that I want as well. So I love them.
doTERRA: Absolutely. And, you know, some people have difficulty remembering to take those supplements every day. And with Lifelong Vitality, it's a couple of times a day. Do you have any tips for making it easier to remember to be consistent and take those supplements?
Jenni: Yes, I do! I actually went on Amazon and bought a pill case that has the whole week for AM and PM, you know, little sections that I can put my supplements in. And so that's what I do just once a week. I will just go through and divide up everything that I want to be taking and put it in by the day, whether it's AM or PM. And then I just keep that right at my kitchen table, right next to my place where I eat.
And I also have one for my husband. I keep that on the kitchen counter. And my children as well, so we're all taking supplements that are supporting our health.
doTERRA: I love that, making sure it's in sight and easy to reach. I think is such a big key.
Jenni: Definitely, yes.
doTERRA: So you mentioned supporting your immune system through Lifelong Vitality. Another one of the great products to do that with is On Guard.
I think when it comes to our immune system, a lot of people deal with things in a reactionary way. You know, after something happens, after we have an issue, we react and try and take care of our immune system. Why is it so important to support our immune system every single day, and how does On Guard play a role in that?
Jenni: That is a great question. And I think we've seen over the past couple of years some examples of why we should keep our immune system strong. And just having several children in my home that are going to school and there's a lot of kids in school, and so they are exposed to a lot of different things every day for, you know, a good portion of the year. And so, yeah, I feel like it's really important to do some things each day, each week, to just help support our immune system so that we don't get taken down in ways that we don't expect or aren't prepared for.
doTERRA: Absolutely. I love that. Now, the next one I want to talk about is one that has a lot of buzz around it, and that is probiotics, which for doTERRA is our PB Assist+. They are very popular in the health and wellness world right now. Why are probiotics something that I should be taking every day?
Jenni: That's a great question as well. And something I've realized over the years is that probiotics do really support our immune system as well. So those are wonderful to include in our diet. And there's different cultured foods that we can eat, but often we aren't taking those regularly. And then there's so many chemicals in our food chain. There are pesticides, there are the plastics that our foods are wrapped in that we're being exposed to or taking into our body and from bottled water.
We're being assaulted by a lot of chemicals in our environment. And so there are some things that we can do with using the oils that also probiotics can help keep our gut microbiome balanced and support that immune system in such a strong way.
And I love doTERRA’s probiotics because they are designed to go all the way through the stomach before they open. And so we're not losing any to our stomach acid. And they also include a prebiotic right in there, which is like the glue that helps the good flora stick to the wall of the intestines and be able to grow. I have taken different probiotics over the years, and a lot of them can just go right through your body and not have any effects. So I appreciate that doTERRA did some research on their delivery of these probiotics because I think it makes them so much more powerful.
doTERRA: Yes. And I think everyone who's taken PB Assist+ consistently has noticed a difference and really been able to tell that it's working for them.
Jenni: Yeah, I think so, too.
doTERRA: Jenni, the last one I want to talk to you about is a newer product, newer line of products, and that's our Abode line. How has the Abode line become a daily necessity in your home?
Jenni: Well, again, I was so impressed that doTERRA did their research on the abode oils that are in these products and keeping everything as clean as we would like it to be. So we have the dish detergent and the hand soap right next to our kitchen sink because we use those every single day. And I love the lotion, and we've been using the spray. We have kids, we have dogs, so we always need some extra help.
My son just spilled some smoothie on the carpet a couple of days ago. And so having this very handy is very practical. And I love the beautiful bottles that they have now. It just makes my kitchen so pleasant to look at those. And so, yeah, we, we have loved those.
And she had the soap in her bathroom with a little tray, and it just looked so nice. I thought, “Oh, I need to get these into my bathrooms instead of just my kitchen.” So that's the next thing on my to-do list.
doTERRA: Yes, I agree. It is beautiful to look at. It definitely is something you don't mind keeping out on the counter. Jenni, it has been fantastic to talk to you today. I have loved to learn a little bit more about these products that I should be working into my everyday routine. We really appreciate all you've had to share with us.
