The million dollar question of the day is…. “how do you reduce illnesses…????” Wouldn’t be great to wave a magic wand and have zero illnesses…. Ever! I can’t promise zero illnesses ever, but I can give you some suggestions and advice on how to REDUCE illnesses or even reduce the SEVERITY of what comes your way. If you have kids in school, you will definitely find this information helpful. Since my kids started school I have seen more sick kids in one space than ever before! If I go to my kid’s school I will see SOOOO many kids coughing, sneezing and sometimes just not looking well.
My first tip… watch my previous videos on using essential oils for back to school. Vitamins and probiotics play a huge part in overall health and wellness. If your chid has a poor diet but you don’t supplement with proper vitamins and minerals you can’t expect their immune system to function properly. A strong immune system is developed with the right ingredients. Remember… Essential oils work WITH the body to heal itself. It is not a one time cure all.
Next tip, use Onguard blend… a lot! This is a specifically formulated blend that has the oils that support a strong immune system. They will help decrease pathogens in the body when used consistency. Remember what I said above, essential oils are not a one time cure all…. Taking one drop of onguard and expecting a strong immune system will not be as effective as using it consistently (daily). Make a roller bottle with onguard and roll it on your spine and bottoms of your feet morning and night. Make it part of your routine when you get dressed or when your kids get dressed. Add a drop of onguard to your water 1-2 times a day. Or add it to an empty veggie capsule. Add a drop to your mouth with some water and gargle after your brush your teeth. This may seem like a lot but when you make it part of your routine it becomes a habit that you don’t even have to think about. Trust me… you will be grateful for this habit.

Have you started your journey will essential oils yet? If you are ready to jump on board I would love to help you get started. I will teach you which oils are effective for your needs and show you how to use them. I want you to have the same success that I have had with essential oils!
Have you ever taken a drop of doTERRA’s peppermint essential oil in your hands, cupped them over your mouth and inhaled?! O…M….G! It is truly the most invigorating experience! If you have not tried this yet, you are missing out! Ok so why would peppermint be great for kids? Keep reading and watch my YouTube Video for more info!
Well, if you can imagine the invigorating experience that I just described, imagine how much more lively and energized kids would be while doing homework if you had peppermint diffusing next to them… or you massaged some peppermint on their neck and shoulders to release some tension after being in school all day. This could be why kids hate doing homework because they are tired, sore and exhausted from sitting in a desk all day!
Peppermint can help! It is uplifting, energizing and soothing to the body! It also has other great benefits like reducing elevated body temperature, soothing digestive discomfort, support for head and muscle pain and so much more! watch my YouTube Video for more info!

I wanted to highlight some points on why they are also good for general health and wellness such as Digestive Concerns, Mental Health, Heart health, Skin concerns and of course immunity. Click Here to Watch my YouTube Video
👉Balance Friendly Bacteria in Digestive System. An imbalance can be caused from illness, medications, poor diet and more. Symptoms include digestive issues, allergies, mental health concerns, obesity and more.
👉 Mental health concerns.
Both human and animal studies find that probiotic supplements can improve some mental health disorders. A review of 15 human studies found that supplementing probiotics for 1–2 months can improve anxiety, depression, autism, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and memory
So if you have kids in school and would like to take some steps to support mental health it would be helpful to start using a high quality probiotic such as PB Assist Jr.
👉Certain probiotic strains can help keep your heart healthy.
Probiotics may help keep your heart healthy by lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol and blood pressure. A review of 5 studies found that eating a probiotic yogurt for 2-8 weeks reduced total cholesterol by 4% and LDL by 5%.
👉Probiotics may reduce the severity of certain allergies and Eczema.
One study found eczema symptoms improved for infants fed probiotic-supplemented milk, compared to infants fed milk without probiotics.
👉Immune Support. They may can boost immune cells like the IgA-producing cells, T lymphocytes, and natural killing cells. A study found that taking probiotics reduced the likelihood and duration of respiratory infections.
doTERRA carries high quality probiotics for both adults and children (PB Assist and PB Assist JR). They are double encapsulated and include both probiotics and prebiotics (We know that bacteria needs food right?)
