In end April 2017, my wellness coach cum yoga instructor was not too shy to share doTERRA with me, this was how my EOs learning journey started. My objective is to improve my health due to chronic pain and autoimmune disease (I am HLAB27 positive, a gene marker for Ankylosing Spondylitis, I will be posting the details about my healing journey later).
Here are some ways on using EOs … Most are based on what I am using or people around me. Along this journey, it is interesting to learn and experiment new stuffs and understand what works for different persons …
Previously, I used another EO brand, whichever brand you are using, hope you take into considerations the grade of the oils, your purposes especially if you are ingesting and even application matters as it penetrates into your skin and cells. Do take note that EO is potent, for example, a drop of peppermint is equivalent to about 28 cups of peppermint tea, so do practice caution especially with young children.
