doTERRA might make you swear…

I had the best experience working with a 15 year old with Anger issues. When we first started talking he was pleasant but closed off to the idea of essential oils. He wanted to know if this was scientifically proven…son, science is a bit of my specialty when it comes to oils.

So I busted out some of my best science-y talk about how your amygdala is your emotional center and how the fastest way to the amygdala is through your olfactory senses. He was convinced enough to let me try and help him.

I asked him “What do you have going on in your life that I can help you with? He said “I get really angry and I can’t control it”

So I looked in my emotions and essential oils book and saw a list of oils that could help. I decided to try the Forgive blend. My main thoughts for using this blend was that even though he was talking about how angry he was it seemed like he was mad at himself for not being in control of his life. I also thought that maybe there are a few people in his life that he might need to forgive so…that’s what I went with.

At first, he held the open bottle and sniffed…then he leaned in and inhaled and I actually saw his body relax and he deeply inhaled again. He held the bottle out, looked at it with awe and quietly said “Shiiiiit”. He was in a bit of shock at how quickly the essential oils worked to help him feel calm.

He looked at me and asked “Can I vape this?” Ok kid that is a whole other conversation about why that is bad for you. “No, you can’t vape this. Let me show you how you can make your hands into a quick diffuser.”

We then showed him how to carefully drop one drop into his hands, rub them together and breathe deeply without getting oils in his eyes.

I LOVED this experience! It was so great to see him taking control of his own emotions and understanding that he truly was in control.

As a mom of 4 amazing (sometimes angry) humans I have to say that I loved seeing hope in his mom’s eyes…I know that hopeless feeling when your kids are frustrated but there is nothing that you can do about it. Well…there is one more momma out there knowing that she’s not completely helpless.

My Copaiba can beat up your CBD!

I can’ tell you how many times I get this question… Do you have CBD oil? To answer your question no I don’t have CBD. There is a lot of hype around CBD and for good reason. There are a lot of benefits that can happen when you feed your CB2 receptors.

If you don’t know what your CB2 receptors are here’s a little info…CB2 receptors are most often found on the cells of our immune system. They help moderate inflammation and our immune response to pathogens. When these receptors are fed properly then they help our body respond better to everyday stressors and occasional threats. CBD, THC and Copaiba all feed your CB receptors so how do you know what to pick?

Do you know how hard it is to break down complicated sciencey stuff into a short easy to understand blog post??? Maybe this will help…

Here is why I feel Copaiba is a better option than CBD.

  • Copaiba is legal in all 50 states. This is a especially important if you have a job where you are required to be urine tested. Copaiba is the resin of a tree, tapped in the same way that you tap a Maple Tree.
  • Copaiba directly interacts with your CB2 receptors rather than indirectly which is what CBD does.
  • doTERRA’s Copaiba is third party tested, and has a strict limited variance meaning that between bottles and batches you are going to have consistent results. Unlike CBD which when third party tested the same company, same product, but different batches had a variance of 2%-35%. (Many different companies were tested)
  • doTERRA’s Copiaba is a much better value! Price, Purity, Potency, AND Pathways. But don’t take my word for it check out this AMAZING video with Dr. Hill and Dr. Osguthorpe
