How do we empower our children? We love, support and educate them - right? Well, of course. But how do we take it a step further in this modern world that teaches us we need a doctor to heal us, a teacher to teach us and someone else to love us? The more I've used these doTERRA oils on my daughter and myself with clear and amazing results, the less "crazy oil lady" she looks at me and more "wow mom, this is cool" looks I get. And with a teenage daughter, I'll take my cool points where I can get them!!! But then an even more powerful moment happened in our family when she said, "Mom, can I have my own set of oils and you teach me to use them?" Through use and sharing, my 13 year old daughter discovered SHE can learn to allow her body to heal itself. She doesn't need me, a doctor, or a pill for a simple ear ache, cold, to relax or even to focus better at school - she's empowered to enhance her body's awesome ability to fix itself. Now, how to teach a teenage girl, she doesn't need a boyfriend til she graduates college... mmmmmm? Wish there was an oil for that!!! Speaking of empowering....wild tangent alert.... - Empowering our children and having a healer in every home - now THAT will radically impact our healthcare dilemma...back to empowering...
I was sharing with one lady in a testimonial sharing group how every time I hear someone has a health issue I want to give them my oil - and I feel badly that I can't just give it all away! She reminded me the oils only seem expensive because people forget they never expire and a dose is a drop, so they can be used over and over for so many things. I told her I needed a good example of them being less - she said easy... "Ear ache... 2 drops of Melalueca, 3 times a day, for 2 days = 96 CENTS! What's your copay?" She had me there!
Success story to share... I gave one of my clients a Frankincense sample to use on her ganglion cyst Monday afternoon following a massage and brief oil consultation. She's been using the oil for barely 2 days and just sent me a text that it is HALF the size already! Sure beats surgery and needles!! :-) Sometimes Oregano is required to get them to go away entirely and sometimes they are gone with just the Frankincense. We'll see, but I'll keep you updated!!
Savannah was gone to her Dad's for a week without her flu bomb oil roller (for prevention) and had a fun sleepover with her Grandparents this weekend. Her Dad calls the night I get her back to let me know her Grandfather now has a MAJOR flu bug! I have to tell you, it was so great to feel empowered and prepared. I immediately started blending doTERRA oils for her to use. (OnGuard blend, Oregano, Melaleuca and Lemon - wanted Frankincense too, but I'm out and its on order.) The flu can take a day or so to appear... so fingers crossed! Let's see how well it works!
