Welcome to my essential oils blog! The purpose of this blog is to document my family's experience with dōTERRA oils and to share them with others. We've been using these oils for over two years now and I am convinced they are superior to any other EOs I have used before. Over the past 10+ years, we've been intentional towards living a more holistic and wholistic lifestyle, through both diet and medicinal approaches. Relying less on Western thought and practice toward medicine and overall well-being.

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years by the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Chinese, Indian Ayurvedic, Persians and widely throughout Europe. Historical uses include treatment of illness and injury, food preparation, beauty and hygeine practicies, religious ceremonies and aromatherapy. So, they can be used topically, internally and aromatically; often times most effective when all three methods are used simultaneously.

dōTERRA essential oils are beautifully pure and their potency and effectiveness is unmatched. They are certified pure therapeutic grade (CPTG) and are the only oils on the market that can be safely taken internally. I have seen remarkable results therapeutically, as well as medicinally and continue to learn more ways to integrate these oils into our lives. I hope this blog is helpful to you and provides inspiration to explore natural medicines and to live better.

MRSA/Staph Infections

MRSA is nasty stuff. It is incredibly hard to get rid of. The usual protocol for MRSA is antibiotics, which are more harm than good. In the majority of the people I have talked to who suffered from staph infections, antibiotics simply did not work. Initially, they do seem to get rid of the problem, but more often than not the super bug just comes back even stronger. Sometimes MRSA continues to resurface, multiple times; even after very strong antibiotics. How extremely frustrating. Antibiotics kill ALL the bacteria, the bad and the good. When the body's good bacteria is killed off, it is vulnerable to infection, again.

Essential oils are a powerful alternative treatment for MRSA. The recommended oils are frankincense, lemongrass, on guard, oregano, thyme, aromatouch, to name a few. One suggested protocol is:

~4 drops each of:
On Guard and oregano in a capsule, taken 2-3 times a day for 2 weeks. Or, 4 drops of oregano, 4 drops of melaleuca and 1 drop of frankincense in a capsule, 2-3 times a day.

~Diffusing the room air with 2 drops each of On Guard and Oregano.

~Also, using AromaTouch and frankincense directly on the problem area. AromaTouch strengthens the immune system and frankincense addresses pain and is restorative to tissues.

Another alternative treatment is a product called Silver Sol, which is simply silver suspended in water (14 parts per million). Silver is antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial and all natural. It does not offend the body's natural antibodies, but it extremely effective in killing infections....including MRS, Malaria, E-Coli and the like.  It can be used as a safeguard for all sorts of common infections such as ear infections, tooth infections and eye infections and can be used to sanitize hands.


People have used silver for many years to fight infection, disease, plagues and even sanitize water.  A friend of mine introduced me to Silver Sol after her daughter's MRSA infection was healed (after coming back three times on antibiotics).

Just another great, all natural, medicinal option. I love having options!
