If you are brand new to essential oils, I understand you - I was there once too! I suffered from migraines since I was 12 years old at the onset of Aunt Flo visiting every month. They progressively got worse over the years and the prescriptions I was taking took a toll on my body. I had to take more pills for them to have any effect on my migraine. I was often "praying to the porcelain god" and napping on the bathroom floor because I would become nauseated. The day after a migraine was also quite debilitating. It was like my body had been through boxing match and I was sore and tired all over.
After one of these migraines where my body was tense, one of my colleagues suggested I get a massage from her massage therapist. This sounded like a great idea and I made an appointment. The massage therapist asked me a lot of questions about why I was there and I promptly explained about my migraines. She was so helpful! She gave me a few samples of essential oils to use the next time I started to feel a migraine come on. I chuckled a bit and said I would try it. At that point I was willing to try anything other than the prescription drugs I was using!
Well, it didn't take long for a migraine to hit and I remembered the samples of essential oils I was given. I promptly rubbed them on my body and inhaled them - and THEY WORKED!! My head still hurt a little bit, but NOTHING compared to a migraine. I could still drive, go to work, and do all of the things I needed to do that day.
I then started doing some research. These essential oils worked for me, but I knew there were other companies out there and I wanted to make sure that if I was investing my money (and my health) that I was getting the real thing - no knock offs, no fillers, just pure essential oils. doTERRA proved to be the best essential oil company time and time again! One of the things that really mattered to me was sourcing along with quality. When I found the source to you
page, I was sold! doTERRA prides itself on Purity, Consistency, and Potency.
I haven't had a migraine in a really really long time. I've found which oils work for me and how to apply, inhale, and take them internally. It took me a bit of time to figure it out. But, of course, everyone has to begin somewhere!
