MY MOM BUGGING ME
I’ve had a very complicated seasonal allergy since I was 13, starting back in Texas when I used to live there. My aunt was a nurse who was able to get Claritin for me but those never really worked. As I got older, I learned to live with my allergies. I’ve even reached a point of glory where I was known as the girl who sneezes a lot.
I don’t like to take allergy medicines that makes me drowsy and most of them do until I met Zyrtec-D. That was amazing, dried my snot. Moving to Utah, required me to take the meds everyday which I refused. I took it when the snot gets really bad. I don’t like to get immune to medicine because then it just doesn’t work.
For a couple years, many people have tried to convince me that I should try essential oils. I just never really got into it until my mother got into doTerra Oils and she’s told me how it was worked for her and that it was amazing.
My mother suggested I do Lavender Oil with Peppermint to help with my sinus. I said “Sure, I’ll try it.” I didn’t realize that these oil were a little outside of my budget. I’m thinking to my self, how can a small bottle like that be that price. I definitely was open to trying essential oils but I just wasn’t sure I wanted to spend that much for it. So I opted for a less expensive brands of essential oils. Let me tell you, none of them really worked, if anything I feel like it made my allergies and my sinus infection worst. I tried a few different brands that were half the price of the doTerra oil and no success.
I came back telling my mom my disappointment. She told me to come over and smell the doTerra Lavender and Peppermint and I will know the difference between its purity by smelling it. When I came over, she gave me the Lavender Oil and Peppermint Oil and an Oil diffuser as a gift because I was too cheap to spend the money on it.
From the previous Lavender oils and peppermint oils I bought, I definitely noticed a difference in smell, for one. DoTerra Lavender Oil was sweeter and much more greener smell than that synthetic smell in the other oils I bought. The peppermint was intense but sweet.
My mom also added that these oils are A grade quality and are all harvested from the plants original atmosphere. Like the Doterra Lavender was harvested directly from France because that’s where it originally grew. And the peppermint too was harvested from its original natural atmosphere. I can immediately tell that there were no synthetic perfume smell in the bottles. My mom added that these oils are very potent that I would not need to use a lot of it. Because of its potency, a bottle can last me for a year or two using only few drops here and there.
I get home and put 3-4 drops of lavender and peppermint in my oil diffuser. Besides the fact that I slept so well diffusing Lavender and peppermint, I noticed my sneezing has lessened. After two weeks I noticed a big difference in my sinus. I kid you not, after two weeks of nightly use of the diffuser with Lavender and peppermint DoTerra Oil, my sinus and allergies were barely there. Within a month, I was allergy and sinus infection free.
I remember after time I realized I hadn’t had allergies after a year and that I didn’t have to take my Zyrtec-D anymore. I’ve told this story to many people because I am a believer of these oils healing if harvested properly.
