THE PRIZE

dr-mom-kit

Last week I got to learn more about essential oils at a product launch doTERRA put on for their new Dr. Mom Essential Oil Kit, which is a collection of essential oils that help moms, grandmas, and individuals care for their family’s everyday needs using safe, natural remedies. And I have one to give away to a lucky reader!

The Dr. Mom Essential Oil Kit includes the following 9 essential oils ($150 retail value):

  • Lavender (calming and relaxing)dr-mom-oils
  • Lemon (cleanser and mood improvement)
  • Peppermint (ease breathing and digestive aid)
  • Melaleuca (cleansing and regenerative, esp. for skin)
  • Oregano (digestive and respiratory support)
  • Deep blue (ease achy joins and sore muscles)
  • Breathe (ease breathing, cleans and soothes airways)
  • Digestzen (digestive relief)
  • On Guard (eliminate and control pathogens)

REVIEW

I didn’t know much about essential oils before, but I learned some good things that made me want to try some of the essential oils. I don’t like going to the doctor and taking medicine, so this more holistic approach to staying well and energized sounds good to me! (However, I do think that we have the longest and healthiest lifespan ever because of modern medicine, so there is definitely a place for both.)

If you’re new to essential oils, here’s some good background information from doTERRA’s website:

  • Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants.
  • Essential oils are very clean, almost crisp, to the touch and are immediately absorbed by the skin.
  • Essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits.
  • Essential oils can be used aromatically, topically, or internally, by themselves or in combination with other oils.

I learned from this presentation that essential oils are what protect the plants that produce them from disease. It makes sense that they could do the same for us.

I have tried the lemon, peppermint, and lavender, all of which have wonderful aromas. Like I said, I’m new to essential oils, but I’m open to their possibilities. It’s always fun to try something new, especially when it works!

You asked why I should win this giveaway.
1. I’ve never won from your lovely site before, but enjoy your tips, not just your giveaways.
2. I would not buy the essential oils for myself…it just seems too much of a splurge for the cost, but I think, from my brief reading, that several could benefit me.
3. I am the first to comment. :) haha! (Although someone is probably going to get that #1 spot before me.)

Thanks for another great idea!

I would love to win this! These oils are so amazing! I have three foster girls who have benefited greatly from oils. Their therapist actually did it and I certainly noticed a difference in the girls. I’d love to be able to win to start practicing with the girls at home. They truly do help to soothe, calm, and de-stress the children….as well as the adults! ;) What a neat surprise giveaway! Thanks for the chance!

I hope to win because I’m a childbirth educator and a doula. I’ve used essential oils with pregnant moms, but I’ve never used them with my kids. I’d love to have some to try with them.

28 Mel March 31, 2009 at 8:13 am

I deserve this giveaway, because I’m incredibly stressed out right now and really, really need to make some scented bath oils and scrubs (which I learned how to make last year with essential oils at a class here in town–it was all natural based cures, remedies and treatments–so worth the money!) My stress level is so high, I’m past code red.

29 Patrice March 31, 2009 at 9:29 am

Love essential oils! I’ve used them in the past on myself and my children and would love to get back to using them. Winning this kit would be a fantastic start!

This is a really nice giveaway! I am excited to experience the oils if you pick me.

34 Lindsay V March 31, 2009 at 2:25 pm

These oils are great. Did you know you can even use them in cooking (ones like peppermint, cinnamon, lemon, basil, oregano, etc!) ??

They are also good for food storage to flavor your food because they last forever!

Kelsey, this kit would assist me a whole bunch in learning more about essential oils. Always wanted a kit with news about what each oil is best used for and a supply of those oils.
What a wonderful gift this would be!
Please count me in as a winner.

Much thanks as ever for the opportunity and for directing me to Terra do as their website is very informative.

Truly, Marjorie

37 Jen T March 31, 2009 at 3:41 pm

I should win this because with 4 little kiddos at my house, Dr. Mom is always on call–24/7 because there is always something happening. Someone is always needing Dr. Mom. This would be so awesome to have! I don’t like just giving pills and such, this is great to have. Thanks for the contest. I love your site!

38 Sydni March 31, 2009 at 5:16 pm

I would love to win this because I actually massage my family members and friends. I took some massage classes before. Since massage oil are expensive, I just use baby oil or lotion. This will be great to use esp. when these have fragrance.
Thanks for the chance to win.

I am always looking for natural remedies to cure ailments. I love essential oils, although I don’t have very many, I’ve used them with great success! I’d love to expand my very small collection. (I have eucalyptis- which is great for colds! And, peppermint- great for rejuevenating sore muscles.)

Also, doTerra is a wonderful quality! Thanks for the great giveaway! And, wish me luck! :)
