I have also been a Wellness Advocate for about a year and 1/2. <BR> <BR> I started using EOs many years ago but it wasn't until recently that I was exposed to doTERRA. Love the oils and healing that goes along with them. The previous oils I used were simply for aromotherapy but not diffused into the air. That being said, I am happy to be using oils that are pure and not questionable. <BR> <BR> I live in the Pacif...

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 17:43:19 EST Supplements Question Hello. New here. I've been using EO for over a year now with some success, and I'm wondering if y'all have any thoughts on the supplements? <BR> <BR> --TerraZyme <BR> --Deep Blue <BR> -- PB Assist+ <BR> --phytoestrogen <BR> --MVp <BR> --xEO Mega <BR> <BR> I've done research, and I just have no clue. Thanks for your thoughts - good, bad, indifferent.

Wed, 1 Jul 2015 09:57:00 EST Deep Blue I have used Deep Blue for a long time for pain in the muscles. Recently I have had a problem with itching at different places of my body, some of which I have difficulty reaching. I apply Deep Blue to the area if possible and to the neck under the ears if the itching is in an unreachable place. Within minutes the itching is stopped. <BR> <BR> What else do you use Deep Blue for? <BR> <BR> Jane Sat, 27 Jun 2015 23:43:11 EST Juniper Berry This will be a new for me this month.

Sat, 6 Jun 2015 08:09:07 EST Sunsational Flavors I can't wait to get my LRP with the 4 oils. Cumin is suppose to be good for toning skin. Dill is just a favorite of mine to add to summer time salads. I think I will try a dressing with it. Tangerine is yummy to smell not sure where that will get used, maybe carpet freshener or room spray. Spearmint ........ as a energy booster like I use peppermint. <BR> <BR> Anyone getting it? Fri, 5 Jun 2015 14:56:52 EST LRP? I just placed my order. Anyone else want to share? I will be getting the product of the month and the summer essentials pack too.

Any oils this week? Whats the weather like? Lets get chatting about anything. Tue, 7 Oct 2014 11:41:34 EST Close This Team? There does not seem to be any activity on this team except for the posts I make. Is there a reason to keep this team active? <BR> <BR> If I get no response I am going to ask that the team be closed because I would rather spend my time helping those who are active. <BR> <BR> Jane Thu, 27 Mar 2014 07:51:26 EST Rollerball Inserts I got the Rollerball Inserts and put them on my Deep Blue and Lemongrass. <BR> <BR> I have cut down on the amount of lemongrass I use because it just goes over my thyroid area and not other places. This has helped cut down the skin irritation on areas of my neck that did not need the lemongrass. <BR> <BR> With the Deep Blue I can apply it to the sore area and then rub it in and not get it all over my fingers and other areas that it is not needed. <BR> <BR> I understand the Rollerball In... Mon, 3 Mar 2014 05:07:16 EST Chit Chat for 2014 I thought I would give us a fresh start for 2014. It is already February. Have you tried any new oils? Do you like what you tried? <BR> <BR> I got a diffuser recently and have tried different oils in it. I really like the ones that clear my sinuous of which some are blends. <BR> <BR> I use the Deep Blue a lot and have cut way back on taking pain pills. I may use pills once a week instead of daily and feel that is a great improvement for my body. <BR> <BR> Jane Mon, 3 Feb 2014 04:45:07 EST Slim & Sassy Contest 2014 Who else is in this beside me?? I would love to be able to have others that I can bounce ideas, recipes, and encourage... Anyone??

What do you use it for? <BR> <BR> Jane Sun, 12 Jan 2014 05:38:34 EST Chain Letters / Spam Hi everyone <BR> This was sent a long time ago but a chain/spam has shown up again. <BR> Please if you get one let the person who sends it a gentle note letting them know about SP's policy. <BR> <BR> <BR> This is just a friendly reminder to please not pass along "chain" type SparkMails or comments on your SparkPage. There's one going around right now about being a beautiful person and passing it along to 3 other people you know. It's nice in theory, but can easily get out of hand. <BR> <B... Mon, 18 Nov 2013 02:06:36 EST Fennel Good morning team! <BR> <BR> I was wondering if anyone has used Fennel and what they use it for?

So glad I am back and will try to post more often!! <BR> <BR> Angie Wed, 23 Oct 2013 11:36:35 EST What is in your diffuser? I am running Holiday Joy in my diffuser in my office right now.

I cannot give you a welcome goodie because you either do not have your page set up or have the settings so we cannot go to your page. If you want to change that let me know and I will walk you through making changes. <BR> <BR> Glad you joined us and hope we can be of help. <BR> <BR> Jane on Guam <BR> (Team co-Leader for doTERRA Team) Sun, 22 Sep 2013 07:12:59 EST Lifelong Vitality Pack I have ordered the Lifelong Vitality Pack. Does anyone else use this? It does not have any soy product in it and is a vitamin/mineral supplement. I cannot use soy products because of my thyroid issues. <BR> <BR> Jane on Guam Fri, 23 Aug 2013 09:28:59 EST ??? This team is very inactive. Should we close it down? Please respond if you want to see it kept going. <BR> <BR> Jane Wed, 7 Aug 2013 07:49:29 EST How Are We Doing? Is doTERRA helping? I just got back on island and thought I would get a chat going. Has doTERRA helped you with weight loss and getting healthier? How are you doing? <BR> <BR> I seemed to have more energy when I was applying Lemongrass and Myrrh near my thyroid. Got out of the habit while traveling so need to get my act together again. <BR> <BR> Jane Fri, 26 Jul 2013 17:26:32 EST Hi there... I'm new to the group... I am also new to Sparkpeople... and was wanting to introduce myself, and also find out some info. <BR> <BR> I have been an IPC with doTERRA for a couple of months now, and have decided that Hubby and I need to get serious with our weight. So - today we are starting the slim & sassy plan. I weight 263lbs, and have to lose weight because I now have Diabetes, HBP (which is managed with the oils), and chronic pain. Hubby weighs about 270lbs, and has similar issues and also chronic migraines. ... Mon, 17 Jun 2013 14:56:53 EST Hair care products Good evening! It is 10:25 pm here and I think Spark People is already on June 1st...when it is still May 31st here for a short while. <BR> <BR> I was just wondering if anyone had tried the hair care products from doTERRA? <BR> <BR> I got the shampoo and conditioner and love them both. I had the glaze for styling already. The three work wonderful together!! <BR> <BR> Have a great weekend! <BR> Angie Sat, 1 Jun 2013 00:26:51 EST Balance Has anyone tried the oil blend called Balance? It is something I just love. I use it aromatically and I also us it on my feet. It helps with emotional balance. It is calming. And it has a nice scent. <BR> <BR> Try it! You might really enjoy it! <BR> <BR> Angie Fri, 10 May 2013 15:18:25 EST Past tense Past Tense...So is this just an English phrase that we learned in high school?? <BR> <BR> What does it have to do with doTERRA oils? <BR> This oil affects muscles and bones and the nervous system. <BR> <BR> Most people I talk to use it for headaches. Migraine headaches, tension or stress headaches or sugar headache (caused by low blood sugar) are the headaches mentioned in my Modern Essentials book. <BR> <BR> I recently purchased some past tense. It really does work! <BR> <BR> Anybody ... Mon, 29 Apr 2013 21:42:11 EST Aroma Touch Do anyone use aroma touch oil? It is a great blend that I like use. It is great for relaxation and stress relief. I also use it for inflammation. It really feels good at the end of a massage, too. <BR> <BR> This is an emergency oil. They are good to have on hand for first aid purposes. <BR> <BR> Have a good day! <BR> <BR> Angie <em>334</em> Sat, 27 Apr 2013 15:24:10 EST Bath Bomb Fizzies Over the weekend in preparation for the baby shower I decided to add in doTerra oils. I made bath bombs and actually they are quite easy and can be cheap if you have the ingredients lying around the house. <BR> <BR><BR>/03/bath-bombs-for-stressed-moms.html <BR> <BR> Also you can do this: <BR> Dry: <BR> 1 cup Baking Soda <BR> 1/2 cup Citric Acid <BR> 1/2 cup Corn Starch <BR> 1/3 cup Epsom Salt <BR> (Mix the above ingredients in a separate bowl) <BR> ... Mon, 22 Apr 2013 17:23:10 EST some changes for team hi gang...i thought of changing the name of the team so that we can pull in more people with the words "essential oils" in it. i was thinking of something like... " Sparkle with Essential Oils"... i searched this site and found no team that has anything to do with essential oils or aromatherapy in the title. i am trying to revive this team and hope that we can attract more interest with some folks if they knew that we existed. maybe it will enliven this team. any thoughts? <BR> shadow....

Tue, 16 Apr 2013 19:22:26 EST Hello? Did this work? Hello! So... I'm super confused on how to work the whole messaging thing on here... Hehe. I've been part of Sparkpeople for about 2 years now, but I'm not social at all.... In point, I'm not sure if I've responded to the topic "Introduce" correctly. I don't think I did.... Anyways, my name is Violet and I've just found out about doTERRA from my mom. I've always been interested in essential oils and natural remedies and health. I'm hoping to learn more through Spark teams such as this one... Tue, 2 Apr 2013 13:21:35 EST chit chat hi gang...hope you dont mind that i started this topic. not sure where to post chit chat stuff. <BR> <BR> <em>441</em> <em>137</em> <em>440</em> <em>383</em> <em>236</em> <BR> is my b-day!!!! i am such a changed person from who i was last year....i am heading in a good direction and i couldnt be more happier! Sun, 17 Mar 2013 08:35:43 EST FYI doTERRA has a tooth paste that is fluoride free that tastes nice and is safe for those with thyroid issues. <BR> <BR> Jane <BR> <BR> I thought this Forum would be good for incidental things. Sat, 16 Mar 2013 18:46:29 EST Cooking with doTERRA oils Does anybody cook with doTERRA oils? If so, what ones do you use and what do you use them for? Wed, 13 Feb 2013 22:23:18 EST Cleaning with doTERRA oils Has anyone tried the On Guard Cleaner Concentrate? If so, how do you like it? Or do you use your oils to clean? If so, what "recipes" do you use? I checked online for cleaning recipes using doTERRA oils and found a great blog. Here is the link: <BR> <BR> <link><BR>/03/cleaning-with-essential-oils.html </link> <BR> <BR> I haven't tried any of the recipes yet but look forward to using them.

Wed, 30 Jan 2013 09:07:31 EST Lemon I use this for many many different things which includes: drinking it to make water in the morning taste better (for some reason since I was 13 I can't stomach water in the morning. I can if I force myself but it just doesn't taste the same as it does at 10 am.), use it in my diffuser and clean with it oh and mix it with peppermint and lavender for allergies. What are some other uses or what have you used it for? Mon, 28 Jan 2013 13:02:21 EST Lavender Lavender is great for relaxing. If having trouble falling asleep it is suggested to put a few drops on a tissue or cotton ball and then put it under your pillow. It also helps relieve anxiety. <BR> <BR> Jane on Guam <BR> <BR> I do have the latest book Modern Essentials if someone has questions. <BR> <BR> Jane Thu, 17 Jan 2013 00:13:05 EST Peppermint So the first oil I would like us all to research and discuss is Peppermint. doTERRA has the peppermint oil, beads, oil blends that incorporate the peppermint, etc. Peppermint is used for nasal congestion, sinusitus, alertness, anti-inflammatory and to improve digestion. There are many many more uses which I would like everyone to comment on and share. I have recently found that if I have peppermint anything before bed time then I can't sleep very well :) So I am trying to limit it to a c... Tue, 15 Jan 2013 09:42:37 EST Goal of doTERRA Spark Team Hi Everyone! <BR> I want to make goals for our team and hoping you can help since you are all part of the team. Now it shouldn't be too easy "do nothing" or too hard "do 5,000 jumping jacks a day" but a starter goal would be nice. doTERRA oils should help us on our journey with appetite, motivation, happiness, maybe we use them when we do exercise so that we can breathe them in, etc. Also the slim and sassy is all about weight loss. So lets have some goals. I wonder if I could make a goa... Mon, 7 Jan 2013 15:18:03 EST What's on your doTERRA wish list? Right now my wish list has Balance, Breathe, Citrus Bliss, Deep Blue, Intune, Pasttense, Elevation, and Eucalyptus on it. Sun, 23 Dec 2012 18:11:42 EST Slim and Sassy How many of you have used Slim and Sassy? In what ways do you use it? I have fellow doTERRA friends that use it in pills or in water. I choose to put it in my water because I think it tastes good but some people can't stomach the taste so instead they use veggie capsules. It also smells very good and I wonder what would happen if you put it in coconut oil on your feet? Comment below on how you use it and if there are any recipes you would like to share. I will post more later :) <BR>... Thu, 20 Dec 2012 10:35:43 EST What Started You Using doTerra Oils? I thought I would start a discussion about the oils that gives this team its name. <BR> <BR> My son and DIL introduced me to doTerra because I was wanting to get away from pain medication that could cause problems with my stomach and interfere with my thyroid as I have Hashimoto Thyroiditis, meaning I have hypothyroidism with nodules on my thyroid. <BR> <BR> I use Deep Blue and enjoy the Peppermint Oil that opens my sinuses and bronchial air ways. <BR> <BR> I started using Lemongrass on m...
