Have you ever wondered what essential oils I use during the course of the day, especially when I am working on a project that requires me to put on my critical thinking cap? First, let me share with you what I used to do before I knew anything about doTERRA essential oils. When I was working full-time as a Social Worker, I used to drink 2-3 cups of coffee a day just to stay alert and be able to get the tasks of my job done. Many people drink caffeinated beverages these days and Starbucks coffee shops are practically everywhere in our communities. Even though I knew that too much coffee consumption wasn’t good for my health, I continued drinking it and I still do to this day, but I limit it to only 1 cup a day. I used to drink a cup of coffee at home in the morning before heading out to work. Then I would pour another cup of coffee at work and took sips at my desk during the late mornings. On stressful days when I had to deal with difficult cases and needed to complete a big stack of paperwork, I would head to the coffee bar and pour myself another cup of coffee. When I was out on home visits working with clients, I usually stop by Starbucks to get either a frappacino or cafe mocha. Since caffeine is a stimulant, it was the only thing that I knew at the time that helped me with concentration so that I could focus on getting my work done before the end of the day.
July 2019 marked my 3rd anniversary being a doTERRA Wellness Advocate. I am so grateful that I discovered doTERRA essential oils and it has changed my life for the better. During the past few years, I’ve removed plenty of toxins from my home and replaced cleaning supplies with do-it-yourself (diy) cleaners using doTERRA essential oils, cook with essential oils, and doing everything that I can to boost my immunity. If you are an avid doTERRA user like me, you know how natural solutions have changed the way we take care of our mind, body, and spirit. This leads me to discuss the roller touch oils that I carry in my handy clutch.
The essential oils roller touch storage clutch is part of my daily essentials. The roller touch are convenient to use because the oils are diluted with fractionated coconut oil. All you have to do is apply the desired oils on the targeted areas of the body such as the brain stem located on the back of the lower neck area, behind the ears, on the temples, over the heart area, and on the pulse point of the inner wrists, including the bottom of the feet. Depending on your situation and your mental well-being, you can reapply the oils as needed every 3-4 hours throughout the day.

It’s known to uplift the mood. Magnolia is a powerful flower that has been used in Chinese traditional health practices for over hundreds of years.

The “Big Dream” roller bottle was a DIY gift from our doTERRA diamond leader when I was at the 2018 doTERRA global convention. Even though it’s been close to a year since I received the Big Dream essential oil blend, I use it sparingly to remind me of my own big dreams! The convention theme was called Dream as the international company celebrated their 10th year anniversary. Can you believe it that there are more than 7 million members in the U.S. market alone! As of right now, the numbers are nearing 8 million as more and more people are realizing the true powers of natural remedies with the daily use of doTERRA essential oils and supplements.
