I use essential oils nearly every day. I add them to my DIY cleaning wipes, my DIY foaming hand soap, and as a natural way to make my home smell wonderful.
I have tried different brands, from Auracacia to Young Living, but I have never tried doTERRA before this month when I tried out the “Breathe” essential oil blend. Let me tell you, this could not have come at a better time. Allergy season is really bringing everyone in my household down, but especially my 3 year old daughter who is allergic to trees, mold, and pollen.
She has a nebulizer that she does use daily throughout the year, and we have to increase her treatments to 4-6 times per day when her allergies get really bad. I’ll be honest, though, I really hate making her take all those inhaled steroids, which is why I try to supplement with natural remedies whenever I can.
I really wanted to try the doTERRA Breathe Essential Oil Blend especially, since it contains laurel leaf, peppermint, eucalyptus, melaleuca (tea tree), lemon, and ravensara. I experimented with using it in an almond oil base. I mixed 10 drops of Breathe with a generous squirt of the almond oil, and rubbed it on Emma’s chest and back.
I tried this on an afternoon when Emma was struggling slightly to breathe, and I was able to skip a nebulizer treatment. The results were not long lasting – perhaps 2 hours at the outside — but it was wonderful to find relief for her that didn’t involve a nebulizer.
