2 of the Most Essential Oils: GIVEAWAY!

DoTERRA essential oils are some of the very best available, and one of their consultants, Stephanie, is donating 2 oils to a lucky winner: oregano oil and Breathe, an exclusive DoTERRA oil blend.

Stephanie says:

Oregano has antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and immune boosting properties.   Oregano should be diluted 1:3 before using.  Dilute with a good quality oil such as olive oil.  Cold-pressed coconut oil gives added anti-microbial and anti-bacterial benefits and has a shelf-life of approximately 3 years.
  • Urinary and bladder infections.  Oregano oil’s active ingredient, carvacrol, directly impacts the mucous membranes of the urinary tract and bladder.
  • Food poisoning.  Studies show that oregano is effective in killing several food born pathogens including E. coli and staph.
  • MRSA.  Studies show that oregano essential oil is effective in treating MRSA.
  • As an antibiotic.  Studies show that oregano oil is a powerful natural antibiotic.
  • As an anti-viral.  Dr. Cass Ingram has done extensive research on Oregano oil and it’s anti-viral effects including bird flu.
Breathe is doTERRA blend of essential oils that, research shows, open and soothe the tissues of the respiratory system and for their abilities to combat airborne bacteria and viruses.  Oils included in this blend are laurel leaf, peppermint, eucalyptus radiata, melaluca, lemon and ravensara.  Research shows that the oils in Breathe are effective in breaking up mucous and alleviating many issues associated with respiratory issues.
  • Asthma
  • Respiratory issues
  • Sinus infections
  • Congestion
  • Bronchitis

These oils would be excellent additions to your medical kit. You can see the whole product line at Stephanie’s website.

  1. I use peppermint, lavender, tea tree, cinnamon, lemon, orange, clary sage and other oils that I’m drawing a blank on right now and I’d love to win this so I can add a few more to my list! :)

  2. I use lavender oil most often;, in salads, in my dryer as an natural way to prevent static electricity, as a way to relieve headaches topically. We LOVE this oil!

    • Make sure you register this comment on Rafflecopter! We had almost 6200 entries in the last Rafflecopter giveaway we did (the Berkey water filter), so it’s impossible for me to track the Tweets, Facebook, comments, etc. without Rafflecopter. (Just don’t want to leave anybody out!)

    • A drop or 2 of lavender is also great in iced tea. Just make sure to use high quality oil with no synthetic fillers. Yum!

    • Be careful using essential oils in the dryer. They can catch fire! ~Amber

  3. I only have tea tree oil right now, but I use it on my face and on my floors!

  4. I use castor oil, mixed with sunflower oil for my face :).

  5. I use tea tree oil and peppermint! Looooove!

  6. I use lavender oil and tea tree oil A LOT! Love them both! I use lavender oil water to clean my bathroom (toilet, sink, tub). Smells so good!

  7. There are 3 oils I use most of all. Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Lavender Essential Oil, and Lemongrass and Citronella run a quick second in the summer for bug repellant.

  8. I have not used oils but would love to try the Breathe one for sinus problems.

  9. I am new to using the oils and learning about all the good they can do for you. I was amazed at learning how you can make your own personal need items, such as soap and insect sprays, room refreshers. I welcome any new ideals or suggestions. Thanks again Hope all are staying cool, its terrible here in WV with no electric.

    • Many essential oils have antibioitic and antiviral properties. This makes them ideal for creating natural, effective cleaning products. I keep a spray bottle filled with water and a few drops of OnGuard (a doTERRA blend) handy. I spray down the showers, counter tops and door knobs. There has been some great research that shows that OnGuard inhibits the growth of the flu virus by 90%. And it’s safe enough for my kids to use. Now they have no excuse for not cleaning. :)

  10. Need the organo….I highly suspect I have bladder infection and I REALLY don’t want antibiotics.

    • I used oregano oil on a UTI and all symptoms (including slight blood in the urine) were gone within 12 hours. It’s amazing stuff and one essential oil that I never want to be without.

      • I am so glad to hear that it was resolved in 12 hours. I ended up with a kidney infection with my first born. Everytime I get a bladder infection I worry about that happening again I was soooooo sick. I started an antibiotic regimen right on the 1st so I finally feel better. I really hate taking antibiotic so next time I will definatly use Oregeno oil. Do you take it orally?

  11. I don’t have any essential oil. After reading the description for Oregeno oil I really wish I had some. I have been fighting a bladder infection for a month :o( I have been taking cranberry supplement but it has only given me a small amount of relief. Thank you for this great give away good luck everyone!

    • Right now, I’m using some essential oils on my son for an ear infection. It’s actually cheaper than a co-pay and a prescription. You do have the initial outlay for the oils, of course, but I’d say we will probably use about $3 in oils as his body heals from the infection.

  25. I’m a bit fan of lavender for my footbaths. We also use tea tree with our laundry.

  28. My mom loves lavender oil, my dad was injured and is having some tissue death. She is using some to help keep it from getting infected until they remove the dead tissue.

  29. I love to add EO to my beeswax lotion bars. It is great to try different combinations.

  31. I love tea tree oil and lavender oil. Oregano is on my list.
    A friend brought in the Breathe for me when I had bronchitis, it was great.

  32. My favorite is Lavender for my son. I burn it during his before bed massage and it helps him sleep through the night!

    • Lavender is great for that. We have also used it too sooth and calm our dog. I picked that one up from the Caesar Milan, the Dog Whisperer. Very clever.

  33. I would use the Oregano essential oil most often

  46. I use lavender oil most often, but this summer I’m trying various oils to make my own insect repellent.

  47. I use tea tree oil most. It is so great for cleaning and freshening things and I don’t have to worry about nasty chemical cleaners. Orange oil is great too.

  48. I have just recently started using essential oils in the last year, & since I am currently have sinus/cough issues I would love to try the Breath. I am using Rosemary & Camphor right now. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win.

  49. i got a sample of the pain management oil at the expo in springs…it really works!

  50. what a great contest thanks!

  51. I love peppermint oil. I also use lavender. I am just beginning to use essential oils as an alternative to OTC medicines. I have a child that is struggling with Flat Warts. I am very intersted in finding something that will get rid of them. The dermatoligist made it worse and it cost me a bucket of money.

    • Warts are a virus. Melaluca has strong anti-viral properties and is frequently used to treat warts. Email me if you need more info. Good luck!

  52. I use lavender, lemon and eucalyptus a lot!!

  53. My most used oils in my house right now are peppermint, lemongrass, and lavender. We put lavender on all booboos and bug bites. Peppermint is used for any kind of tummy trouble whatsoever as well as for pain relief. My husband is using lemongrass to help heal after ACL surgery.
