I love that dōTERRA’s natural deodorant has none of the bad stuff like aluminum and talc, and I love that it contains all kinds of good stuff like coconut oil, shea butter, cypress, sage, melaleuca, cedarwood, and bergamot essential oils, and that it’s made in the USA.
There are times, though, when I just kinda need a little more strength, especially when it’s really hot outside or I’m working up a big sweat. (Never thought I would be posting about this, but here it is… )
A great way to beef it up is to add a drop of Patchouli oil on top before you apply it (my husband does this, works great), or you can also add a drop of Geranium oil, which is what I do… again, works great and smells better.
Essential oils have strong connections to our feelings and emotions, and can help us do the deep emotional work… so here’s what I love about these two oils, based on information from the book: Emotions & Essential Oils, 4th Edition: A Modern Resource for Healing
Patchouli is the Oil of Physicality, and helps one be fully present in their physical body, and is grounding and calming, and it’s great for body odor.
Geranium is the Oil of Love & Trust, and helps restore love and trust in relationships, especially when there has been a break in trust or a break-up. It also helps with loss, grief and abandonment issues, enabling one to be forgiving, tolerant and open to emotional healing, including loving and trusting others. Also great for body odor.
The only oils I use and recommend are the highest quality available, and can also be used aromatically by being inhaled directly from the bottle or with an ultrasonic diffuser. Contact me for my recommended brand.
The emotional side of the oils is very important to consider, as many physical ailments have emotional roots, and if not addressed will manifest eventually. I will be posting more on emotional work in the future.
On a side note, I also love this mini succulent garden that a team member made for me… what a great idea! Love it! Thanks Rita!
