CLOSED- doTerra essential oils from Lemon Living

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNER #10 MARY! THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ENTERED!

For over a year now, my sister-in-law, Jill Lemon, has been on a journey for better health.  She's focused on fitness, diet and enhancing her lifestyle.  She's worked hard and it has paid off.  Jill looks amazing but more importantly she feels amazing. 

She's started a new blog called Lemon Living, full of tips and tricks that she has used in her journey to better health and I'm happy to introduce you to that blog, Lemon Living.


In addition to exercise and better eating she has also discovered essential oils as a way to improve her health even more and has become a consultant for doTERRA oils.  Now you need to understand something about Jill, she is not a person who wastes her time and money.  She researches every purchase she makes and doesn't spend time doing things just for the sake of doing them or because it's the next best thing.  So when she told me that she loved these oils and wanted to share them with others I sat up and took notice.  These must be for reals because Jill wouldn't mess around with them if they weren't.

I was skeptical but she sent me a few samples which to my surprise I actually have enjoyed a lot.  There are lots of ways that you can use these oils and they can help with a variety of ailments.  Here are the samples she gave me and my experiences with them -

  • Lavender:  I used this on a patch of poison ivy I had on my arm.  My ivy burn was close to healed when I started using the oil so I can't say that it "cured" my burn but it did make that patch's scar clear up a bit quicker than the other patches I had.  My friend Mary also uses this as aroma when she cleans the floors and I plan to put a few drops in my carpet cleaner solution the next time I clean.
  • Lemon:  My husband had a major stomach ache a few days ago.  He was complaining about being sick like only a man can do.  I put two drops of lemon oil in a glass of water and made him take a sip.  After only 5 minutes he was back to normal and even he had to admit that it really did make him feel better.  I also plan to add this scent to my homemade cleaning supplies.
  • Peppermint:  Jill used to get migraines every day and since she started putting peppermint behind her ears every day.  She hasn't had a migraine since she started doing this.  I had a headache one day and I used the peppermint instead of Advil.  I felt like it worked well.  My daughter also complained of a headache one night.  I put a drop on her forehead and she stopped complaining about the pain and started asking for candy because is smelled so good.  Haha!
  • Deep Blue:  This is like a lotion with a mixture of a few different oils in it.  It's supposed to help with things like sore muscles, bruises etc.  I slept funny one night and my shoulder and neck were in so much pain I couldn't move them.  I tried the Deep Blue and the pain was gone and I had mobility within minutes.

These are just a few examples of the uses for these oils there are hundreds more but these are the ones that have helped me in the past few weeks.  I was skeptical at first but I really did like them and will be buying more in the future. You can find what oils are available and their uses HERE.



Now... who wants some free stuff???  I can sense you raising your hands behind those computer screens so let's get on with it.

  1. I've started getting into essential oils but I've been skeptical right now as I haven't had much luck with them. I'm hoping to have more luck using them in cleaning supplies and beauty supplies.

  3. I have been interested in essential oils for a couple years now. My niece has used it to help her significantly with her arthritis and she in turned shared it with my mom. I have tried the lavender for sleeping and the peppermint for a pick-me-up and to clear my breathing. Looking for new ways to use these oils!

  4. My in-laws have used essential oils for years and years. Many have switched over to DoTerra. My M-I-L has given me some, mostly ones she had multiples of. (I know I lucked out she's great at giving fun surprises)
    She gave me:

    Clary Sage- to try to help with my infertility, I've only been using it for a couple weeks so no good news to report yet. I put it on my feet.

    On Guard- I made a vinegar cleaner with it.
    Peppermint beadlets- I just pop one in every once in a while for good breath and digestion.

    Breathe- great for colds. I put a few drops on my chest or rub it in my hands to breathe it in or put a few drops in the shower.

    Grapefruit- I like to put a few drops inside of the TP roll and it dries in there but releases some scent when you unroll, I just read it somewhere and tried it. It's a nice pick me up. It was one of the first ones she gave me this winter and helped with the bleak winter.

    Slim and Sassy- I noticed a little help in the will power area but it might have been a placebo effect, but I'll take any help I can get.

    Slim and Sassy protein drinks- I like the vanilla way more than the chocolate. They taste pretty good. I use the vanilla with any fruit and chocolate with a frozen banana. They do a weird thickening thing it you let them sit too long, but that's my only complaint.

    Zendocrine- to help detox is the next one I want to try.

    Terra Shield- I get eaten alive, so I hope this helps this summer.

    She also gave me lemon, cassia, frankincense, rosemary, basil, and peppermint. I'm excited to try them.

    Lavender is one that I don't have that I'd really like to try. It seems to be a good overall oil.

  22. I have started to try oils! I really like the Lemongrass oil so far for my torn ligament. I love the smell too! I am a little skeptical. I guess I just have to try it for myself to see. I am hoping it will help my ligament. I really want to try the deep blue too to see how it helps my sore muscles.
