I am so happy to have found these oils and to be able, and excited to share them with as many people as I can. My sister lives in America and this is how it all started:
She had been telling me about it for a long time, but to be honest, I thought: “Oh my, now she’s gone crazy… but OK, if it helps her.” In April 2013 she came to visit me for three weeks and, of course, brought a whole bag of oils with her, which again did not impress me.
I have three children, aged four, seven and 13. The four year old had been suffering from croup attacks and one evening he was again on the verge of getting another attac, so my sister’s response was (quote): “I’ll mix you an oil for that!!!”
“Here we go again”, I thought, but I let her prevail, and it helped, I was able to put aside the cortisone suppositories, until further notice. Nevertheless, I still thought that this was only a lucky coincidence, and with that I put the issue aside for the time being.
My second son suffers from brittle bone disease, and on the same day he broke his sternum, where upon my sister said again, “I’ll mix you an oil for that”. Well, you already know what I my thoughts were, but again, I let her do it. We rubbed it on his sternum and he actually slept pain free, which had never before worked to such an extent. We repeated it and it surprisingly healed rather quickly. Even with the normal medication of Novalgine, I do not get these results for my child.
We then treated sore throats, stomach aches, etc, all successfully. When I asked my sick son, if the oils helped him at all and he answered me: “Mom, not only help …but even more than that”, I was sold, and my heart belonged to doTERRA’s oils!!
Since then, I try to address everything with the oils and have always experienced success, which encouraged me again and again and confirms to me that I do and have done the right thing. I am extremely happy and grateful that I got the chance to try the oils.
Seija Schmitz-Makinen – Finland
Seija is a great advocate of the oils and uses them on a daily basis. Seija explains below how she uses the oils for her husband and herself.
“My husband is very ill; he had a bad stroke nine years ago, when we were living in Germany. We moved to Finland one year after that. He needs constant care 24/7. He currently struggles to stand or walk and is physically able to sit up for only 30 minutes at a time, which makes for a complicated life. I get extra help 80 hours a month so I am the “head nurse” most of the time.
In October 2012 I was invited to a ladies´ night (in Finland). That´s when I was introduced to Meredith Greco and doTERRA. doTERRA products have increased my energy levels and vitality and I have stayed healthy during the influenza season. My daily programme includes the following:
Frankincense under the tongue
On Guard and Balance on my feet
Immortelle on my face
Deep Blue for my arthritis
Lemon in every glass of water
Slim & Sassy two-three times daily
Past Tense for headaches
Lavender and Serenity on the feet at night
Whisper as a perfume
Intune, Elevation, Wild Orange and Lemongrass in the diffuser
If I feel cold, I make a bomb of the following: On Guard, Melaleuca and Oregano. I love Vetiver, too.
I also use LLV, Mito2Max and Terrazyme for energy and to aid with digestion.
doTERRA oils have been a big help to my husband’s daily care, he has big problems with the skin so he applies Melaleuca to the skin around open wounds, he uses Breathe and Lavender to calm the body and open the airways and he uses, Peppermint and Deep Blue for the pains.
I have a great desire to give back. I love sharing with others the benefits I have gained from doTERRA and for that I prefer personal contacts instead of big classes. This way I can build trust. It´s all about relationships after all.
I guess my only secret to success is to have a close relationship with God to whom I am accountable. He is my mentor and gives me wisdom in various challenges. I am blessed.
My goal is to give my company someday to my grandchildren… The eldest one, 12 years old, is already very interested in the oils. She knows a lot. It´s very important for me to read daily about the experience the other oil users have. I want to keep on learning about oils and scientific research. My own testimony has to stay fresh.”
