Doterra Essential Oils Intro Kit

Doterra Essential Oils Intro Kit

I have been wanting to tell you guys about something we have completely fallen in love with for awhile now so I am so happy to have finally gotten this post together to share it with you.  I was first introduced to Doterra Essential Oils a couple of years ago when my daughter got a really bad curling iron burn down her arm.  My sister gave me some lavender to help it heal because she had used it on her son's hand when he got a severe burn all over and it saved his skin.  I loved using it and really wanted to learn more about essential oils, but to be honest it was always last on my list to purchase or invest in.  I actually went to a class with a friend to learn more about them but just couldn't convince my husband that they were worth money.  So it wasn't until my mom hosted a Doterra class in her home that I finally felt like this was my chance and I just needed to invest in a starter kit for my family and start seeing how these oils could help us on a daily basis.  I didn't have any real health concerns that I needed to address, but I love learning about health and wellness and the idea of having natural solutions to take care of your family.  I don't love taking medicine and love going a natural route whenever it's possible.  And since we got our first package of Doterra products we have been in love with them ever since.  I have been learning so much about them and am honestly blown away by all of the different uses each oil has and how just little changes can improve your life.  So that I don't overwhelm you today, I just wanted to share with you the top three essential oils that make up the Doterra Intro to Oils kit because it is an easy place to start.  We honestly use these oils everyday and now I make sure that I never run out of them.  Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint are three of the most popular essential oils for a reason because they have so many different uses.  Here are just a few ways to get you started.
