IT IS FINALLY SPRING! At least, according to the calendar it is.
Although it is still snowing here in the midwest, spring weather is just around the corner and I am really looking forward to getting back outside with my son. After what seemed like the longest winter ever, I can’t wait to see fresh flowers popping up in the neighborhood, trees with leaves, and the yard looking green again.
The only problem with spring? Allergies. Spring is peak time for allergies. Just when it feels great to be outside again, allergies can send us right back in to the couch. I had never experienced allergies personally until last spring and it threw me for a loop. As soon as the allergy symptoms hit I found myself researching which of my essential oils would help me get through the awful runny nose, congestion, and itchy throat.
Luckily I found doTERRA Breathe. Breathe is one of doTERRA’s most popular essential oil blends due to its powerful uses and benefits. Mainly, Breathe is known for its ability to maintain clear airways, and assist in overall respiratory health - perfect for allergy sufferers. Breathe is this months product of the month and you can get it for FREE! When wholesale members place an order of 125pv or more (1pv is about the same as $1) on your Loyalty Rewards Program you then receive a 5mL bottle of Breathe FREE with your order. (Not on LRP yet? Let’s get you started.)
doTERRA Breathe is enriched with a series of oils that help cool and invigorate, promoting feelings of easy breathing. doTERRA Breathe essential oil blend can be used both aromatically and topically to help minimize the effects of seasonal threats. doTERRA Breathe is a blend of Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Melaleuca (Tea Tree), Lemon, Cardamom, Ravensara, and Laurel Leaf that emits an airy and fresh mint aroma.
My entire family relies on Breathe in the spring to get through seasonal allergies. I also diffuse this throughout the year in my sons room when we visit my parents as he gets stuffy around dog fur. And doTERRA Breathe isn’t just for allergies - this blend is also a must-have for cold and flu season (which hopefully is over?!). With more natural ingredients than Vicks Vapor Rub, Breathe has the same effect, if not better, and has also been known to promote peaceful sleep - which is why it is my go-to allergy and cold season blend. Plus, doTERRA Breathe is chemical/toxin free and completely plant based. You can’t find that at Target.
Tips for use:
Add a few drops to your palms, cup your hands and inhale deeply to instantly feel congestion relief.
Combine in the diffuser with Frankincense for even more congestion relief. Combine with Melaleuca (tea tree) to ward off snoring.
Combine doTERRA Breathe with fractionated coconut oil and add to a roller bottle for easy application. Or you can purchase the prediluted roller bottle by doTERRA. The roller bottle makes it easy to apply to the bottoms of feet or your chest.
Make shower steamers! The basic recipe is 1 cup of baking soda, 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup distilled water, and 25 drops doTERRA Breathe mixed together and placed in silicone molds to dry overnight. To use, just pop one on the floor of your shower and enjoy a nice steam with the added benefit of clear sinus’.
With spring just around the corner (seriously, it better be!) this month’s LRP promotional oil is so timely. This month, with the purchase of 125pv on LRP get a free 5mL bottle of doTERRA Breathe!
