The Super Powers of Anti-Aging Essential Oils





Have you ever wondered why your anti-aging face cleansers, moisturizers, and serums you buy in the store don't do what they CLAIM they are supposed to do? Well it is because there are a lot of bad chemicals added to those products that are toxic and disrupts our endocrine systems. Now most all beauty products you find on your store shelves do contain essential oils, but after they add all those bad chemicals, it basically destroys the pureness and integrity of the essential oils. So now essential oils in those products do not work like they are suppose to work, which makes the products not effective at all!
Here is my solution, Lets go to the natural source to stop the signs of aging and reverse the damage to your skin that is causing those wrinkles.
Here is my list of DoTERRA Essential Oils that I recommend to reverse the signs of aging:


1. Frankincense Essential Oil- good for moles, warts, age spots and tons more. Promotes cellular health and sheds dead skin cells while regenerating new healthy cells. There for reducing the appearance of  wrinkles. Also it tones and tightens the skin all over your body.

 2. Sandalwood Essential Oil- protects against UV radiation and is a skin regenerative.

3. Lavender Essential Oil- soothes irritated, dry skin. Reduces inflammation which is the cause of wrinkles. Helps with skin allergies. Stops acne, Reduces redness and evens out skin tone. I use lavender essential oil for everything including reducing under eye puffiness and dark under eye circles.

 4. Myrrh Essential Oil- Myrrh has some of the same anti aging properties as Frankincense and is excellent for dry, chapped skin especially in the winter.

5. Helichrysum Essential Oil- Is fantastic for eczema and psoriasis. It is also a tissue regenerative and protects against sun damage.

6. Geranium Essential Oil- Helps scars and spots on the skin fade and vanish. Facilitates blood circulation just below the skin surface to help remove wrinkles. Promotes cell health and encourages recycling of dead cells and regeneration of new healthy cells.

So here is the recipe for Age Reversing Face Serum

25 drops Lavender
20 drops Frankincense
10 drops Myrrh
15 drops Geranium
10 drops Helichrysum
Add essential oils to a 10ml glass roller bottle. Fill the rest of the bottle with Vitamin E oil or Fractionated Coconut oil. Shake gently and apply to skin each morning and evening. Avoid putting the serum under your eyes at night. In fact never apply anything to your eye area at night!

If you don't want to make your own age reversing face serum, DoTERRA has made a blend that works the same.

Natural Mosquito Repellent Using Lavender Essential Oil


Did you know that West Nile Virus spread by mosquito's is on the rise again this summer? The reports I have read mention that the insect repellent sprays and lotions you buy at the store are not working to prevent mosquito's from biting us. Not only are the repellent sprays and lotions not working, but they are loaded with toxic chemicals that can make you sick and disrupt your endocrine system. I can't believe we are putting that spray or lotion on our children!!!  Lavender Essential Oil is safe to use on children and is 100% all natural! Mosquito's hate the smell of lavender, but you can smell good while you repel those pesky mosquito's.
Now I have tested the use of Lavender Essential Oil as a mosquito repellent personally myself. A week ago, we had company over. We were sitting outside talking and enjoying the summers cool evening breeze and feeding the mosquito's. Everyone was getting attacked by mosquito's ( they love me!) I went in the house and grabbed my lavender essential oil and dabbed it by my ears, on my wrists, and on the back of my knee. I then passed my beloved bottle of Lavender essential oil around to my guests to apply to themselves. Immediately the mosquito's stopped attacking all of us! We sat outside for several hours after applying the lavender essential oil and didn't have to reapply it once.
Bonus benefit is that if you forgot to put on your lavender essential oil before going outside, and get a mosquito bite, you can apply lavender oil to the bite to stop the itching and swelling. Lavender essential oil will heal the bite faster because of the anti inflammatory and disinfectant properties.

Other benefits of lavender essential oil are:
eliminates nervous tension, pain reliever,anti-fungal, stops pain from sunburn and takes the redness away,  disinfectant, enhances blood circulation, treats respiratory problems, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, bug repellent, stops headaches, helps you fall asleep, helps depression issues, clears acne, balances hormones, heals digestive problems, reduces puffiness under the eyes and dark circles, helps stop seasonal allergy attacks, heals wounds, and so much more!
