Imagine having a toolkit that enables you to set the scene for your family’s daily life and well-being. Each morning begins with a diffusing blend of invigorating citrus oils like Wild Orange and Lemon. This aromatic wake-up call not only fills the air with a refreshing burst of energy but also sets the tone for a day filled with positivity and vitality. Now, for grounding and calm, you inhale a drop of Lavender and doTERRA Balance. This soothing combination creates tranquillity and calm, setting your intentions for the day. Reaching for the OnGuard blend to swipe on the bottoms of the feet to support yours and your children’s immune system… you are now ready to begin your day.

As the day unfolds and the demands of motherhood beckon, moments of calm become sacred sanctuaries amidst the chaos. In these moments, I turn to oils like Peppermint and Wild Orange for their uplifting and calming properties. If diffused, they create a tranquil oasis within my home. When inhaled and applied to pulse points, with each inhale, I feel tension melt away, replaced by a sense of peace and serenity that grounds me amidst life’s storms. And I smell amazing.

When things get really busy with maybe a flurry of after-school activities and the tasks on my never-ending to-do list, amidst the hustle and bustle, I can reach for my favourite oil blend in my bag. InTune and Vetiver help me to pause, to breathe before I go again. If my body needs nourishment for achy joints or head tension, I can reach for oils like doTERRA Deep Blue blend to soothe away tired muscles and ease tension that is accumulating with every task I tick off my to-do list.

As evening descends and the world quiets down, I gather my loved ones for a bedtime routine infused with the gentle embrace of essential oils. Together, we inhale the calming scents of Lavender, Wild Orange, and Balance, using them in their bath or a bedtime massage, allowing their bodies to prepare for sleep with the tranquil aromas that lull us into a state of relaxation. With each drop, we release the stresses of the day, surrendering to the peaceful embrace of sleep.

Beyond their calming and sleep-inducing properties, doTERRA essential oils serve as guardians of our family’s health, bolstering our immune systems and fortifying our defences against illness. With oils like doTERRA On Guard blend—a potent blend of protective oils like Cinnamon, Clove, and Eucalyptus—we create a shield of wellness around our home, warding off seasonal threats and supporting our bodies’ natural defences with just a swipe from a pre-made rollerball onto the bottoms of our feet daily and adding them to the diffuser; we have a routine set to go.

They also offer a gateway to low-tox living—a lifestyle that prioritizes reducing exposure to harmful chemicals and embracing natural alternatives. Traditional household cleaners often contain toxic ingredients that can exacerbate respiratory conditions like asthma and trigger skin sensitivities. By switching to green cleaning solutions infused with essential oils, mums can create safer environments for their families, free from harmful pollutants.

Moreover, the benefits of low-tox living extend beyond physical health to encompass hormonal balance and overall well-being. Many commercial products, from personal care items to household cleaners, contain endocrine-disrupting chemicals that can interfere with hormone function. By opting for natural alternatives like essential oils, mums can support hormonal harmony and promote a healthier internal environment for themselves and their loved ones.

Incorporating doTERRA essential oils into my daily practices has been nothing short of life changing. From moments of tranquillity amidst the chaos to rituals of self-care and nourishment, these oils have become integral companions on my journey towards natural solutions in my home for me and my family, enabling me to become my own natural healer, which as a parent, is important to me.
