And, as a way to remind them to pray for those who need a beacon of hope in the midst of darkness, I will be giving away a prize to six (6) lucky winners today!

Education

The dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation is dōTERRA’s primary philanthropic outlet. From the beginning, dōTERRA’s intentions have been deeply rooted in a philosophy of gratitude for the incredible “Gifts of the Earth” that is distributes to others around the world via their essential oils. Part of this vision is enacted through the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundations, which has a vision and a mission to empower people worldview to make positive sustainable change.

There are so many different projects that the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation engages in, including co-impact sourcing projects, distributing emergency relief kits, and offering a match program that matches the funds raised by community members who put forward a plan to implement different social programs. For more information about these programs, check out dōTERRA’s website.

One of the programs that I love most is dōTERRA’s HOPE initiative. Project HOPE is a comprehensive model designed to fight human trafficking through prevention, rescue, and aftercare. The tragic reality is that slavery is not a thing of the past. Modern day slavery continues to this day, with over 40 million men, women, and children being trafficked worldwide. You can learn more about the important work that the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation is doing to prevent human trafficking, rescue victims, and provide aftercare to survivors.

  1. Arlete Cevada-Marcos

    Both my children love dōTerra essential oils! I got this kids’ kit a couple of years ago already and my 12yo son uses is regularly. I enjoy watching him select the appropriate rollerball, depending on what he’ll be doing and how he’s feeling. My 16yo daughter selects oils for her diffuser and she makes her own rollerballs for different uses.

    It’s so important to teach our children about their bodies and their emotions and to really empower them to make the best, healthiest choices for their health. This is yet another reason why I love dōTerra and all the learning opportunities that they offer. Such a blessing! 🙂

  2. Louise Gaudreau

    Cheer and Forgive would make a great Christmas gift for my little nephew…he is very hard on himself and often shows feelings of sadness, discouragement and anger at times.

  3. Oh my favourite topic of essential oils – EMOTIONS!!!

    I have had plenty of stories but the one that really helped me to cope was Console and Forgive. Later added Immortelle.

    When my mom passed I couldn’t cope. I was sleeping most of the time and just grieving. I was so mad at everything and everyone. The person that caused the accident also “disappeared” and for 2 months we didn’t have answers. I forgot using the oils until my mom and sister urged me to do so.

    It didn’t take the pain away. It doesn’t make you stop crying. The ache in my heart won’t go away ever.

    You see, these oils can’t bring back the dead but it can help you cope.

    It helped me to communicate with my clients, it made me feel better talking about her, to focus on my work again and not sleep and cry the whole time. It helped me to be a wife and a shoulder to my husband – it was his mother that we lost. It helped me to cook again and to be there for her friends, family and my father.

    So for grief: Console, Forgive, Immortelle.
    And a staffy. Or two… ?

    1. Your words are so powerful. I am a very emotional person also. I went through a terrible loss in 2016 with the death of my sister (aged 19), and I wish I had Doterra in my life at that time. I am slowly learning how to better use the oils to cope with my emotions and ongoing anxiety/depression.

  4. I am in close contact with people daily and wear a mask most of the day. I have used the kid’s Calmer under my mask to help with the anxious feelings of exposure to the virus. I also apply it to my temples hoping this will calm others close to me.

    1. I will be starting back to work in the hospital come January and I plan to do the same thing! I will likely have all my roller bottles on hand so I can decide which one I like best under the mask 🙂

  5. I was gifted a roller bottle of Balance, Citrus Bliss and On Guard. This blend helped to balance my emotions through this stressful time.
    I used this roller bottle frequently when my father was admitted to hospital.

  6. Manuela Aspeling

    I had developed a quite aggressive eczema around my neck that started spreading in all directions from there. No oil would help that I looked up for eczema. I ended up at tge doctor got a
    Got an injection and two ointments. After 2 weeks it was gone yet it started agsin about 2 weeks later. This time I finally came on the idea to look at my emotions I checked out worry and also grief/sadness as I had list my mother not too long ago. So I started using Oeace on my temples for the worries plaguing me and Console for the grief which due to the app I had to put on my shoulders. The only way I could think of why on the shoulders was that it would help to take the baggage off my shoulders. And yes it did the job. Mostly. There is still a patch behind my ears but this is a good reminder to do those oils again for the rest to go.
    I learned that if the oils for physical ailments don’t help to have a look at the emotional side.

    1. Aveline - EL Admin 2

      It’s so true – the mind leads the body and the emotional side is so important too! I’m so glad you felt some relief!

    1. I agree with him! Peppermint tops my list too! I would really like to try the peppermint that comes in the little capsules, have you tried this?

  7. Charlene Saaiman

    My daughter and I started useing oils togerther – daddy is overseas and her emotions were just a rollecoaster – she would wake up with nightmares with daddy being gone – Serenity at that stage saved my life and hers! I eventually got her her own kit and she knows which oils to use for which emotions now……

  8. Not too long ago my 6 year old nephew had a little cough and was congested. During Oil Camp I had made a roller bottle with oregano oil. It came in handy because I was able to put some on the bottoms of his feet before bedtime. We also diluted Easy Air with fractionated coconut oil and rubbed some on his chest. I also diffused Easy Air in his bedroom. The next morning his cough and congestion were completely gone. He was his happy and energetic self again; it was like he was never sick!

    1. This is great! I have not tried diffusing in my sons room yet, but I think this may be in our future when cold season comes around. I do have some sensitivity in my eyes when I diffuse in my own bedroom, did you find your son had any issues with that?

      1. There were no issues experienced with diffusing in the bedroom. We always keep the window open just a crack for better airflow. Maybe that may help.

  9. My children are both grown adults but had I had the essential oils, I would have used them with my son so that he would not have been so stressed at school.

  10. Nicole Gaudioso

    As by now, everyone knows I have 4 babies. Sophia, Benjamin, Isabella, & Ezekiel. I use oils on them frequently.
    My eldest, Sophia, is her mothers daughter. Sassy! she plays the role of the older sister very well. the oil I use the most on her is calmer.

    My son Benjamin, is my special baby, he’s second in line for the throne, he was diagnosed at the age of 3, with level 2 autism. It was hard at first, because my heart always wants to protect him and make sure he’s okay, just like any mother would. Over time everything started to get better. Therapy has helped him so much and he’s come a long way! in one year he went from only saying NO to now having full conversations. I use a lot of different oils on him, and he loves them! I say oil time, and he comes running to me, lays down and gives me his feet’s. Depending on the day is what I give him. I use coconut oil, vetiver, & lavender on him most of time.

    Isabella. oh Bella. This is the child they warn you about when parents cry in frustration. She’s very energetic. getting her stay still is very hard. For anyone whos been baptized you know how they throw holy water on you? imagine that but trying to catch a 2 year old running around the house, going up and down the house. instead of holy water, I use lavender with the fractionated coconut oil of course! then she calms down & then I get to sit down for 5 minutes or so. Lord give me strength.

    Ezekiel is my 4 month old chunky monkey, always such a happy baby. I use Correct X & coconut oil for him. I was cutting his nails, and missed 2. I woke up the next morning to find my little prince covered in scratches!! my heart still hurts. They were so deep too. ? Correct X is highly recommended when you have so many kids. Kimberly sent me a sample, and I ordered 2 tubes soon after I used it.

    Having 4 kids in 5 years, has been tough. My new favorite is Madagascar vanilla. When I’m feeling stressed I rub some on my wrists…. It smell’s so amazing. I hope I win this kit, it would help so much as a mom on the go!!

    1. Aveline - EL Admin 2

      Love hearing about your kiddos Nicole and how you cater to their specific needs. I imagine oil time is so fun in your household! Your Bella sounds like my son haha – never stops!

  11. I use very diluted oils on my 12 week old baby every day. She has Lavender and castile soap at bath time. I used lavender and frankincense on her nappy rash which healed it up really well. I also use an ‘immunity blend’ of wild orange, copaiba and lemon on the soles of her feet each morning. Such a sweet time to enjoy a little foot massage with her each day! When she had a slightly stuffy nose last week I used a blend to open up her airways. It was lemon, melaleuca and cedarwood. I massaged it onto her chest, spine and soles of her feet. All cleared up in a couple of days!

    1. Aveline - EL Admin 2

      Rosie what a great idea – it seems like you’ve gotten into the habit of using multiple oils for you babe! I can imagine she loves the foot massage haha

  12. I would absolutely LOVE to win this prize. I have two little boys (3 years and 6 months old). My three year old seems to be going through a very emotionally charged time, and is often tearful or “whiny”. I think that this prize would be SO beneficial for him at this time…and for the future.

    I have previously used lavender in a roll on option on my child’s feet prior to bedtime to help with relaxation. I believe it worked well, and I would really like to make this a bedtime routine. My 6 month old is currently teething, so I am hoping to do a DYI teething blend in a roller bottle to use along his jawline during this time.

    1. Aveline - EL Admin 2

      Aw, I know the feeling Tara! That definitely sounds like they could be helpful for your boys 🙂 We don’t realize how many emotions our babies go through! A DIY teething blend could definitely help your 6 month old as well, I’m sure! 🙂

  13. Roberta Adderley

    I usually use Adaptiv to help balance my emotions. One day I had the kids’ Calmer roller in my work jacket. Amazing!!!
    I offered the Calmer roller to niece-in-law. A new ritual of rolling Calmer onto the sleep troubled four year old’s feet each night is making a happier family and less grumpy kid ?

  14. In 2007 when our son was disabled it would have been so nice to have the calming and soothing oils to deal with our distress and anxiety, and oils to help his pain and emotional turmoil

  15. Me daughter recently lost her dog. We had to have our dog euthanized due to a failing liver. She used console , which really helped. We even used console on our other dog to settle her down.
    My favorite blend is motivate.

  16. https://images.app.goo.gl/Q97Peex57CmHeqS29

    My son suffers from ADHD and ODD. When he is really upset, I have him lay in bed and put cheer and calming blend on his neck. It helps to calm his emotions and puts him in a better mood.

    I would like to try applying Focus, Vetiver or Patchouli to the bottoms of his feet next time.

    Making rollers with these oils in them would make a great stocking stuffer for Christmas. Then, he can apply them when ever he feels the need.

  17. My sons both go for their oils! My oldest boy is 5. He has his own kit that’s in his bedroom. We labeled them with stickers so he knows what they’re for. He grabs his case when he needs it. When he started school we made him a brave blend roller to keep in the car – he chose citrus bliss, wild orange and spearmint.
    My younger boy is 2. He sees me applying my oils and asks for them too. He applies his own on guard during his bedtime routine and helps his dad know where the other roller goes!
    I think its amazing that they’re taking charge of their health

    1. Aveline - EL Admin 2

      Heather that’s so inspiring! Do you find it’s helped your eldest? My son is curious as well – I’ll have to try that, maybe after the ‘taste everything’ phase, haha 🙂

  18. I do not have any children, however balancing my emotions is one of the main reasons why I dove into using essential oils. I have my routine, and I try to stick to it most days, but like us all, I do forget!

    Every morning I try to have a sniff of my balance, which I keep at my bedside (mostly for diffusing at bedtime). I also enjoy using my adaptiv roller on my inner wrists. Or sometimes if I have a day off I will diffuse some adaptiv or elevate to pick me up in the morning.

    Every night I like to use balance, breath, cedarwood & lavender in my diffuser – as I drop each oil into the diffuser I usually take a long sniff from each bottle as well.

    One thing I know I need to restart are LLV – I only ever used to take a half dose due to cost, but when I stopped taking them I sure did notice a swing in my emotions.

  19. Aquila Tendon

    I love the topic of using essential oils to help balance emotions, especially with kids (mothering a toddler here is definitely not easy without my oils!). I have so much more to learn about this too.

  20. So many amazing oils in the kids line. I know there are a few that would for sure help my daughter. She has a lot of struggles with her emotions and feelings. My daughter loves to breath in Peppermint Oil each day to help start her day! I am so thankful for all these amazing oils and what they have to offer.

  21. Well now here is an interesting this…I have been nursing some deep hurt for quite a while…and I have been feeling much better. Guess what I have been diffusing daily? LAVENDAR. And guess what oil I have been taking INTERNALLY? Lemon. Could it possibly be that this is why I feel so much better? PS – I am an empty nester.

  22. We roll a little steady on her mask everyday before school.
    Lavender for sleep
    Tummy tamer for tummy aches
    I love that she goes to her oils when she needs them , she is 6

  23. Using a sleep time spray made with lavender has helped ensure a good night sleep for my 4 year old niece and we also spray under the bed and in closet to keep any monsters away i

  24. My daughter was extremely nervous and anxious about having to recite her lessons to her virtual class. She beckoned me to sit beside her and hold her hand while she awaited her turn. Then she asked if we could diffuse some oils that would calm her nerves?. So we diffused a combination of Adaptiv, Balance and On Guard. Inhaling deeply and intaking all the wonderful calming properties of the oil relieved her anxiety. She successfully recited and was so proud of her success?.

  25. My daughter was having bowel issues…. or rather lack there of. I put 1 drop of Zengest along with a couple drops of FCO in my hand and rubbed it over her tummy in a counter clock wise mostion…. welll within a 1/2 hour she had relief. One of my favourite oils in our house.

  26. Joanne Allaire

    I like to make homemade cream with my grandchildren’s. I let them choose which oil they want to add in their own. The choice that they are chosen are always what their emotion are at that moment! It’s amazing!

  27. My grandson has croup a lot. I know this is not part of the kids collection….but Easy air is s must have in every house in our family in case he has a bout of Croup arise.

  28. I use the lavender in my kids bath water as well as rub it under their feet and behind their ears when its bed time.
    I also use adaptive on my eldest to help him concentrate and help him cope with the school day as he is autistic so his days can become very stressful.
    My kids absolutely love the oils that they ask for it daily. I have many oils that I have been using on my kids.
