Let me start by saying I am no essential oils expert, but I do love the smell of the doTERRA oils that were sent to me to review.
If you think about it, there are only three ways that you can use essential oils: Aromatic, Topical and Internal. While I did not ingest any of these oils through my mouth, I did take in the benefits of the aromatic and topical uses.
I was sent Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint. These oils are strong, if I needed a room refreshed, all I had to do was open one of these oils; however, I did put a couple of drops in my children's bathroom behind the toilet and close to the shower---smells refreshing in there now!
I have had several people tell me that peppermint essential oils were good for headaches, and while I am not really sure if it does work on headaches or not, I did try it when my sinuses were hurting/aching. I put a few drops on my finger and ran it around my sinuses: under my eyes, out to my cheeks and even up the bridge of my nose. I was surprised it helped! I was really kind of surprised that using peppermint oil helped relieved my sinus pain!
doTERRA essential oils are pricey, but well worth the cost (at least the peppermint oil is!). I will be purchasing the peppermint essential oil again, once my bottle gets low. I will have to research and see what other benefits the lemon and lavender have other than making the rooms of our home smell good.
