My Favorite Essential Oil: Frankincense

Frankincense is my favorite essential oil. It’s rightly called “the king of oils,” and was a gift to baby Jesus along with gold and myrrh. Hey, if it’s good enough for Him, it’s good enough for me. That alone speaks so much about the value of this oil.

You can use doTERRA Frankincense essential oil can be used topically, aromatically, and internally. Remember, when using essential oils on infants dilute 1 drop of essential oil to 1 tablespoon of fractionated coconut oil (FCO). Frankincense also has the ability to magnify the effect of other essential oils, so throughout this post you’ll notice I’ll give suggested pairings along the way.

Overall Health: For overall health, I like to take 1 drop of frankincense under my tongue every day. This oil is packed with antioxidants and will support brain and cellular health.

Immune Support: I have what I call a “FLOOM BOMB.” In a roller bottle, I put 3-5 drops each of Frankincense, Lemon, OnGuard, Oregano, and Melaleuca and top it off with FCO. This combination is like magic. I roll it on my spine and the bottom of my feet when I’m feeling under the weather, and I’m back on my feet the next day. It’s also soothing for your scratchy throat. Just roll on over your throat and massage over your lymph nodes.

Anti-Aging: Frankincense is packed with anti-aging properties and is a powerhouse when paired with Myrrh. You can make your own blend in a roller bottle, or check out doTERRA’s Immortelle Anti-Aging blend. It’s got Frankincense, Myrrh, Lavender, Rose, and Sandalwood. Fine lines and wrinkles don’t stand a chance.

Emotional/Mood Support: If you deal with mood swings, sadness, or anxious feelings then you should definitely be diffusing frankincense in your home. When I need my mood to be uplifted I diffuser Lemon and Frankincense. If you need to reduce anxious feelings and calm your emotions, try diffusing Lavender and Frankincense. It’s a great blend for sleep as well!

Soothing Tension & Pain: You can use Frankincense for headaches and for muscle pain. For headaches, apply Frankincense, Lavender, and Peppermint where you’re feeling your head tension. For sore muscles, combine Frankincense and Deep Blue and massage into your muscles.

These are just a few ways you can start using doTERRA Frankincense in your home. Remember, this month you can get Frankincense for FREE with a qualifying order. Want more details?

Essential Oils for Thyroid Support

I like to meet up with people over coffee and chat about how doTERRA essential oils can help them (and you!) reach their health goals. It’s one of my favorite things to do. I love watching the lightbulb come on as we talk about how the oils work, how to use them, and bettering their families health. (P.S. We can always meet up virtually for coffee if you’re interested in a free wellness consultation.)

One of the issues that has come up in the past is thyroid support. There have been a handful of people that come my way that ask if essential oils can support their thyroid. The answer is yes. The answer is through consistent use of essential oils and a healthy lifestyle, your body will take care of itself. So I’ve done some research on this, and chatted with friends who use doTERRA for their thyroid and I have a blend I’d like to share with you today.

doTERRA Blend for Thyroid Support

  1. Frankincense
  2. Myrrh
  3. Clove
  4. Lemongrass

What I do is fill up an empty rollerbottle about halfway or slightly less with the essential oils. Then top the rollerbottle with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil. Give it a little shake to mix up all the essential oils. Use this blend topically over your thyroid 2-3 times a day. Consistency is key with essential oils. Don’t just use it for a week and stop. Do this consistently for a couple of months and then decide if it’s something you need to incorporate into your everyday routine. There are a few other suggestions I’d like to give, and I’ll discuss further about in later posts.

doTERRA Daily Protocol for Optimal Health

  1. Lifelong Vitality Pack: I recommend this for everyone. The Lifelong Vitality Pack is filled with whole food and all natural vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to give your body a solid foundation.
  2. Frankincense & Copiaba: These two together are unstoppable. I’ve started incorporating taking these two essential oils internally, in a veggie capsule, every day. They are amazing at immune support, brain health, emotional support, and about a billion other things.
  3. Citrus oils in Water: doTERRA citrus oils, like Lemon or Grapefruit, will not only make your water taste good, but benefit your overall health. Also, tasty water will make you more likely to hydrate, so drink up! Be sure you’re drinking your water in glass or stainless steel when using doTERRA essential oils.

Remember, you can get Frankincense for FREE this month, and Myrrh is 10% off as well. You can check it all out at mydoterra.com/amandagerber. Click “Join & Save” for the best value!

doTERRA BOGOs: Petal Diffuser & FREE Wild Orange & Cassia

Hey y’all, so doTERRA saved the best BOGO for last. This one sells out quickly, so be sure to order yours soon! Today only when you purchase a doTERRA Petal diffuser, you will receive Wild Orange and Cassia for free.

Petal Diffuser: This is a small diffuser that covers up to 330 square feet. You can choose to run it 1, 2, or 4 hours, and it offers an option light. It’s great to use in your home or office. I’ve had my Petal diffuser for almost 4 years and it’s still running great!

Cassia: This is an essential oil that supports your digestive system and your immune system. It has a warm and spicy smell very similar to cinnamon. It can be used topically, aromatically, or internally, but keep in mind you should dilute this oil, as it is a hot oil. You can also use this oil to support a healthy metabolism. Try diluting it with Wild Orange to get your home smelling like Christmas.

Wild Orange: This essential oil is one of doTERRA’s best sellers, for good reason. The aroma of this oil is very uplifting, and when combined with Peppermint can keep you motivated and focused. You can use it internally as a gentle cleanse or for digestive support. You can also use this oil topically (but avoid direct sunlight, as it is photosensitive) for a calming and cheerful mood.

Order while you can at mydoterra.com/amandagerber because these will sell out!

doTERRA BOGO: Lavender & Peppermint

Happy Thanksgiving friends! I am so thankful for the amazing gift of doTERRA essential oils, and for my family… and we have a lot of family at my house right now so I’ll keep this short. Today only if you purchase a bottle of doTERRA Lavender essential oil you will get a free bottle of Peppermint essential oil.

Y’all, these are essentials in any homes. We literally use these two essential oils every single day. They are staples around here. Here is a brief overview.

Lavender: This essential oil is good for all things soothing. You need to soothe you skin? Apply Lavender straight on your area of concern. You need to soothe your emotions? Apply Lavender on your pulse points or diffuse it with some frankincense. Need better sleep? Diffuse Lavender and Cedarwood for a restful nights sleep. We use this oil for everything from bug bites and diaper rash to moody kids and sleepless nights.

Peppermint: This essential oil can be used for so many things. For digestive support I like to drink 1 drop in a hot cup of water and make my own peppermint tea with it. For respiratory support we apply this with some eucalyptus to our chest to open up our airways and clear congestion. In the mornings I pair Peppermint and Wild Orange to wake me up and uplift any grumpy morning moods.

For more information on these BOGOs you can go to my website mydoterra.com/amandagerber and make sure to click “Join & Save” to get the most cost effective price and a welcome gift from me! Thank y’all so much for your time and attention. Happy Thanksgiving!

doTERRA BOGO: Peace & Motivate

Hey friends! I woke up at 5:30 this morning just so I could see the BOGO deals and spread the word before my kids woke up. Well, turns out Noah was already up and talking to himself, but he knows not to get out of bed yet. Anyway, moving on…

Today only if you purchase a doTERRA Peace Touch, you will get a doTERRA Motivate Touch for free! Now their Touch line is amazing. doTERRA’s Touch line is the same essential oil you love, diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil in a rollerbottle. So it’s great to use for younger kids or for those who may be sensitive to some essential oils.

Peace Touch (Reassuring Blend): This blend consists of Fractionated Coconut Oil, Vetiver, Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Frankincense, Clary Sage, Marjoram, Labdanum Leaf, and Spearmint. I love this oil. I like to use it as a natural perfume because it has an amazing floral woodsy smell to it that is calming and subtle. It provides just what it claims to: peace and reassurance. If you deal with anxious or fearful emotions, just roll this over your pulse points. If the demands of your work day start to overwhelm you, roll this on your wrists and breathe deeply. If your kids seem to be bouncing off the walls at bedtime, roll this on their cute little feet and diffuse it in their bedroom. This is an oil I use often, and it’s one that I like to have in my purse or diaper bag when I’m out of the house.

Motivate Touch (Encouraging Blend): This blend consists of Fractionated Coconut Oil, Peppermint, Clementine, Coriander, Basil, Yuzu, Melissa, Rosemary, and Vanilla Bean Absolute. Y’all if you can’t tell by this lineup, this blend smells amazing. It has a citrusy mint aroma that’s intoxicating. I love using this in the morning to help wake  up and get moving. It can also help promote feelings of confidence and belief, while eliminating feelings of doubt and pessimistic. I like to roll some on before I teach a doTERRA class or step on stage when I’m networking. You’ve got to try it!
