Essential Oils in the Classroom - Part 1

I just wanted to share a post from doTerra's Blog. You can find a link back to it at the bottom of this post. I loved this post so much! I home school my son and we use the oils every day and I cannot tell you the difference it makes in his concentration and the way it calms him down so he can focus. I hope more teachers start to look to alternative ways to help students learn in a more effective environment! 

These teachers have had amazing outcomes using essential oils with their students. Read their stories as they share their individual experiences and tips that promote a healthy and successful learning environment in this three part series.


“I am a special education teacher in a middle school located in Arizona, and I first started to use dōTERRA products when my district was taking the state assessment test. My students came into class the first day a bit more nervous and talkative. You could just sense the unrestful energy in the classroom. That first day of testing resulted in some behavior that was rather inappropriate. I went home that evening and was determined to figure out how to change the environment.
lavenderAfter looking at seating arrangements and other factors, I determined that the way the class was set up was the best arrangement. That is when I remembered how Lavender essential oil would assist in calming my son. The next day, before the students came to class, I placed a couple drops of essential oil on a cotton ball and placed it behind a fan in my room. On testing days, as the students entered into the room, I turned on the fan and it began to diffuse the Lavender. The students initially had that nervous energy; however, within fifteen minutes I noticed that the students were beginning to calm down. I would continue to add a drop of essential oil on the cotton ball every hour. According to my observation, this was the first time in four years that the room was calm for the entire testing period of three hours. This calming effect continued for the remainder of the testing week.
I stopped placing oils on the cotton ball for three days and noticed that the nervous energy came back, but on the fourth day I resumed using the Lavender essential oil and observed that the calming properties resumed. I have also used On Guard in my classroom by placing 5-7 drops in a spray bottle to help cleanse surfaces. The room feels and smells so clean. I also use the mixture to wipe down surfaces that my students touch, and I have diffused Purify after my male students have come to class sweaty and smelly following exercise in their physical education class. The unpleasant odors have disappeared and I even received a comment from one of my female students telling me she hasn’t smelled feet lately.
Essential oils have played an important role in my classroom. As teachers, if we can reduce undesirable behavior or calm our students to a manageable degree, then we can focus on what we do best and teach our students. I have also been amazed with the results I have experienced in my own household since being introduced to dōTERRA essential oils and products.”
-Albert LeFebvre, Casa Grande, AZ

diffuser“I am a reading intervention teacher so I see lots of groups of children throughout the day. I use the lotus diffuser at school to help fight germs and odors in the classroom. My second grade students were fascinated with the glowing blue light and the mist that comes out of the diffuser. I told them  it was a germ-fighting machine. Each day they would ask what oils I had with me and they wanted to smell them. Some of the different oils that I used were On Guard, Wild Orange, Lemon, and Grapefruit.
If I forgot to turn the diffuser on, a student of mine would always remind me that I needed to put water in it. When he came into the classroom each day he would go check the diffuser to see if it needed water and then  he would go to the sink and fill the diffusers water pitcher to the line and bring it to my desk so I could refill the diffuser.”

Using Essential Oils Safely

Using Essential Oils Safely

dōTERRA's Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils can be used safely by your family for a variety of wellness applications. However, there are several safety guidelines that you should follow when using essential oils and essential oil products.
  1. Be sure to use only 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oils and follow all label warnings and instructions.
  2. If redness or irritation occurs when using essential oils topically, apply a vegetable oil such as fractionated coconut oil or olive oil to the
    affected area.
  3. Essential oils should not be used in the eyes, inside the ear canal, or in open wounds. In the event of accidental contact with the eye, dilute with vegetable oil NOT water.
  4. Do NOT consume an essential oil internally unless labeled with a Supplement Facts box with specific dietary supplement use instructions and warnings.
  5. Discontinue the use of an essential oil if you experience severe skin, stomach, or respiratory irritation or discomfort.
  6. When using on children, apply a very small amount of oil to test skin or other sensitivity. Do not use oil on a child's hand as they may transfer to their eyes or mouth.
  7. Consult your physician before using essential oils if you are pregnant or under a doctor's care or have other safety questions regarding
    essential oils.
It is important to remember that therapeutic-grade essential oils are highly-concentrated plant extracts and should be used with reasonable care. Consulting with someone who has experience with essential oils will make your first experience with essential oils more enjoyable and rewarding. As you learn how to use essential oils through personal experience, share your knowledge with others in a safe and responsible way and encourage others to do the same.

Essential Oil Quality Grades

Essential Oil Quality Grades

There are a growing number of products claiming to be or to contain essential oils. They range in price and quality and are found in skin care, cosmetics, aromatherapy, and other products. However, many of these products do not use 100% pure essential oils and often use fragrant synthetic chemical substitutes to dilute or replace more expensive essential oil extracts. Furthermore, there are no current regulatory standards for the descriptive use of the "therapeutic grade" for products labeled as essential oils.

The CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®* mark represents dōTERRA's own internal standards for sourcing and testing 100% pure aromatic botanical extracts using independent testing laboratories. The dōTERRA brand and registered CPTG mark represent dōTERRA's guarantee of 100% pure essential oil extracts that meet high standards for both purity and material composition and accurate product labeling.

dōTERRA's therapeutic-grade essential oils are 100% pure natural aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants. They do not contain fillers or artificial ingredients that would dilute their active qualities. Proper extraction and quality control methods also ensure that dōTERRA's essential oils are free of any contaminants such as pesticides or other chemical residues. In addition to being 100% pure and natural, dōTERRA's Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils are subjected to further quality testing that ensures the correct composition of the active natural compounds found in each oil. Even though an essential oil may be 100% pure, if the right species or part of a plant has not been used, or if the plant has not been grown in the right environment or harvested at the right time, or if it has not been distilled under the right conditions, the natural chemical makeup of the extraction will not provide as predictable and powerful a benefit. In some cases, the wrong plant harvested at the wrong time may result in an extract that contains harmful levels of some constituents.

dōTERRA's Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils are guaranteed to be 100% pure and natural and free of synthetic compounds or contaminates. They are subjected to rigorous mass spectrometry and gas chromatography testing to ensure extract composition and activity. dōTERRA's 100% pure essential oils represent the safest and most beneficial essential oils available today.

(Try this at home: Compare the smell of dōTERRA's 100% lavender essential oil to another lavender oil or product in your home. If your product's fragrance is overbearing in any one note it may contain synthetic chemical substitutes. A 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oil should have a balanced, broad fragrance profile and should smell crystal clean. Now, compare the feel of your product to dōTERRA's essential oil. A pure essential oil should not feel slick or oily but rather absorb cleanly and completely into your skin.)

Extraction Methods of Essential Oils

Extraction Methods

Therapeutic-grade essential oils are most often extracted via a low-heat steam distillation process in which steam is circulated under pressure through plant material liberating the essential oils into the steam. As the steam mixture cools, the water and oils naturally separate and the oil is collected in its pure form. To ensure the highest quality oil extract of correct chemical composition, temperature and pressure must be monitored very closely. Too little heat and pressure will not release valuable oil while too much can change an extract's composition and potency. As important as the carefully controlled extraction process is, the careful selection of the correct plant and plant parts harvested at the right time is also required for a successful extraction. This complex process is as much art form as it is science and requires experienced growers and distillers working together to ensure a quality product.

(Fact: It takes as much as 12,000 rose blossoms to distill 5 ml of therapeutic- grade essential rose oil.)
Steam distillation is by far the most common method of extraction, but some oils such as citrus oils are extracted through a process of compression in which the oil is squeezed from the plant. A very few essential oils are extracted using solvents that bind with the oils and are later removed from the final product.

Uses of Essential Oils

Uses of Essential Oils

Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends depending on user experience and desired benefit. Essential oils are usually administered by one of three methods: diffused aromatically, applied topically, or taken internally as dietary supplements.

Aromatic Uses
Our sense of smell influences many physiological pathways including the stimulation of hormones and other metabolic processes. Aromatherapy is founded on the body's predictable response to specific olfactory stimuli. Essential oils are widely used in aromatherapy applications. Certain essential oils, when diffused in the air, can be very stimulating while others can be calming and soothing. Beyond emotional benefits, diffusing essential oils can purify air of unwanted odors and some airborne pathogens. Low or no-heat essential oil diffusers are recommended as they do not change the chemical structure of the oil being diffused. Essential oils can also be used as cleansing and purifying additives to laundry and surface cleaners throughout the home.

Topical Uses
Due to their natural molecular composition, essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically. Application of essential oils can have immediate, localized benefit to the target area of application. They have restorative and calming properties and can be used effectively with massage and beauty therapy. They are also natural disinfectants. The chemical structure of essential oils also allows them to be absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin for internal benefit throughout the body.

Internal Uses
Essential oils can also be used as dietary supplements supporting a variety of healthy conditions. Some essential oils have powerful antioxidant properties while others help support healthy inflammatory response in cells. Many essential oils are generally regarded as being safe for dietary use, but some oils should not be taken internally. Do not use any essential oil product internally that does not have the appropriate dietary supplement facts on its label.
Using essential oils can be both profoundly simple and life changing at the same time. Working with someone who has used essential oils before will help first-time users have a more beneficial and enjoyable experience. A large amount of information is readily available for those desiring to increase their knowledge of essential oil applications.

(Be sure to use only 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oils and follow all label warnings and instructions. Essential oils should not be used in the eyes, inside the ear canal, or in open wounds. If redness or irritation occurs when using essential oils topically, simply apply any vegetable oils such as fractionated coconut oil or olive oil to the affected area. Consult your physician before using essential oils if you are pregnant or under a doctor's care.)

Essential Oils throughout History

Essential Oils throughout History

Essential oils have been used throughout recorded history for a wide variety of wellness applications. The Egyptians were some of the first people to use aromatic essential oils extensively in medical practice, beauty treatment, food preparation, and in religious ceremony. Frankincense, sandalwood, myrrh and cinnamon were considered very valuable cargo along caravan trade routes and were sometimes exchanged for gold.

Borrowing from the Egyptians, the Greeks used essential oils in their practices of therapeutic massage and aromatherapy. The Romans also used aromatic oils to promote health and personal hygiene. Influenced by the Greeks and Romans, as well as Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic use of aromatic herbs, the Persians began to refine distillation methods for extracting essential oils from aromatic plants. Essential oil extracts were used throughout the dark ages in Europe for their anti-bacterial and fragrant properties.

In modern times, the powerful healing properties of essential oils were rediscovered in 1937 by a French chemist, Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, who healed a badly burnt hand with pure lavender oil. A French contemporary, Dr. Jean Valnet, used therapeutic-grade essential oils to successfully treat injured soldiers during World War II. Dr. Valnet went on to become a world leader in the development of aromatherapy practices. The modern use of essential oils has continued to grow rapidly as health scientists and medical practitioners continue to research and validate the numerous health and wellness benefits of therapeutic-grade essential oil.

What is an Essential Oil

These next few posts are to help educate you on essential oils. You can also find all this information on

I get a lot of questions from customers and potential customers and these next 6 posts will really help answer some of those questions for you. If you have any questions after reading them. Please let me know. I am here to empower and educate you to help you and your family have a healthier life. Essential Oils have changed my life and I hope you can learn the benefits of them too. 

What is an essential oil?

Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. If you have ever enjoyed the gift of a rose, a walk by a field of lavender, or the smell of fresh cut mint, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. In addition to giving plants their distinctive smells, essential oils provide plants with protection against predators and disease and play a role in plant pollination. 

Essential oils are non water-based phytochemicals made up of volatile organic compounds. Although they are fat soluble, they do not include fatty lipids or acids found in vegetable and animal oils. Essential oils are very clean, almost crisp, to the touch and are immediately absorbed by the skin. Pure, unadulterated essential oils are translucent and range in color from crystal clear to deep blue.

Try this at home: Squeeze the peel of a ripe orange. The fragrant residue on your hand is full of essential oils.

In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Modern scientific study and trends towards more holistic approaches to wellness are driving a revival and new discovery of essential oil health applications.

dōTERRA (CPTG) Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils represent the safest, purest, and most beneficial essential oils available today. They are gently and skillfully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy. Experienced essential oil users will immediately recognize dōTERRA's superior quality standard for naturally safe, purely effective therapeutic-grade essential oils.

Melissa's Story

I am super excited to be a "guest blogger" on Tricia's blog.  Yes, she is my sister.  However, I am the older and wiser one.  True story. ;)

I have so many success stories to share but I will probably start with my own first.  Two years ago, I started having panic attacks.  Anxiety was something new to me.  Or so I thought.  As I look back in my younger years I can now see how I struggled with anxiety even as a child.  But having panic attacks was something new.  I have never been so scared in my life.  Things that I enjoyed were seemingly difficult.  I had a hard time going in public.  I even stood in the line at the grocery store with a full cart and left it there.  I walked away because I was having a panic attack.  Who was this person?  I have always had my life under control!  So of course I went to the doctor.  And no surprise there, I was diagnosed with severe anxiety and panic disorder.  My doctor loaded me up with lots of drugs, I went to therapy and I learned to deal with this new person.

Fast forward a year and a friend of mine came by my house and gave me some doTerra essential oils to sample.  I will be honest.  I was VERY skeptical.  I was sick of being on so many medications and feeling so numb to the world around me that I was willing to try anything.  I wasn't able to go to the class that my mom and sister went to.  But after using the oils for a couple of weeks I was sold.  I couldn't believe how different I felt.

I use Serenity to help me sleep.  I started using Balance, Elevation and Wild Orange every day.  I have a very hard time in the winters.  I hate it being dark and gloomy.  So I purchased a diffuser and I would diffuse Wild Orange and Peppermint to give me energy.  I am happy to report I am only on one medication.  The oils have made a world of difference in my life.

I have also learned how to keep my family healthy.  When any of us start getting a cold, flu, sore throat - just about anything - I will turn to my essential oils.  We have saved so much money by not having to go to the doctor so much.  In fact, we recently relocated to Arizona and when we went to say goodbye to our pediatrician that I love and adore she mentioned that it had been a really long time since she had seen us.

I have also been able to help my daughter with her anxiety.  I used the same oils on her and after using them for 6 months, she is now off her medication as well. 

I also sell doTerra which I never thought I would do.  But seeing how much it helped me and my family, I want to share that with everyone I can.  It's something I believe in.  Completely.  I feel so much more empowered to help others around me.

Bath Salts

At the end of a stressful or long day I LOVE a relaxing bath and a good book. Here is a great way....

Bath Salts 

1 cup Epsom Salts (I love the Peppermint scented ones but plain ones work great too)
10 drops Essential Oil (Lavender seems to be my favorite)

Mix together and store in an air tight container. I use the Jelly Canning Jars. They are the perfect size to keep right near the bathtub and the perfect size to give as a gift.

Jeremy's Story

Jeremy is my ex husband and the father of my 2 children. I am also lucky enough to have him as one of my best friends. So, when I joined doTERRA he was very supportive and came to my first class. It didn't take long for him to realize what amazing products were sitting in front of him. Plus, he realized if these oils were helping our son so much that he wanted to have them available at his house too for him.

He lives in a smaller, rural town. They have these horrible gnats. Not just your normal gnats...these annoying biting ones. My kids come home every time they go to his house with all kinds of bites from the gnats, mosquitoes...who knows what else. I do not miss that all ;) Anyway, he decided to order some Terrashield which is our Bug Repellent. After he received it this is the exact text message I received from him.

"Terrashield is the!"

He had been sitting out on his porch and the gnats starting attacking him like crazy. He went inside and put the Terrashield on then the gnats would not even come near him. He was so excited, especially because it has a pleasant smell not like other bug sprays.

DōTerra’s TerraShield™ Repellent Blend is a proprietary all-natural, super-concentrated blend made up of 15 Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™ essential oils that provide a safe and effective deterrent against biting bugs without the use of synthetic chemicals such as DEET.

Apply several drops of TerraShield™ all-natural, superconcentrated repellent blend to exposed skin and openings in clothing before outdoor activity. Reapply every 4 to 6 hours or as needed. May also be used aromatically. Does not contain artificial ingredients, fragrances, or chemicals such as DEET. Will not stain clothing.

My beginning of doTERRA

Four years ago my son Jereth was diagnosed with Aspergers and Sensory Processing Disorder. In the beginning I was so overwhelmed. He is still the same child to me but it broke my heart to see the struggles that he may go through in his life. It also at least gave me some answers to help understand his behaviors. A little over a year ago I was invited to a doTERRA Class at a friends house. My son had been having so many struggles at that time. Extreme anxiety and depression, major sensory integration problems that were making public school very difficult. I was having an internal battle about home schooling and hadn't made a decision yet. I had been praying for some answers, something to help my son be able to make things a little easier for him. His struggles were not going to go away but if I could help make them easier I would do it in a heartbeat.

After listening to this class, my Mom who was with me looked over at me and said "Jereth needs this, you need this". With tears in my eyes, I said "I know". I knew in my heart that I had found what I was looking for. doTERRA was the answer to so many prayers. We immediately started using Serenity, Vetiver and Frankincense.  I could not believe the difference it made in him. Before starting the oils he would come home from school with such high anxiety that he would be crying for 3-4 hours. I could hardly be a mother to my other 3 children because I was spending so much time trying to calm him down. Within just a week or two things were so different. He was still having a lot of problems at school but it was no longer taking me all night to settle him down. Due to some major bullying at school I decided to pull him out of public school and home school him. After one week and the addition of some other oils I am happy to report that other than a bad day here and there I have my sweet and happy boy back. I was afraid I would never see him like that again.

I have been a major headache and migraine sufferer for many years. I have tried many medications with not very much relief. Over the last couple years My migraines have gotten so severe that I was averaging 4-5 a week. Being a mom of 4 kids this was making my life way too difficult. After starting doTERRA Essential Oils these have reduced to 2-4 a month. This has been life changing for me. I use Peppermint, Lavender and Balance ever single day. I also use Deep Blue Oil and Rub as needed when I have a migraine.

These are just a couple reasons as to why I use and sell doTERRA. It has changed the lives of myself and my family. I am so grateful for the opportunity that I have of being involved in such an amazing company. I want to share this with you. I want to educate and empower you to find alternative ways to improve your families health. I cannot imagine my life without the help that I have received from the oils.

Check out my website below to place an order or for more detailed information. You can also email or call me. I would love to answer any questions you may have.

Thank you!

Stay Calm with Lavender Essential Oil

EO Spotlight: Stay Calm with Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender is one of dōTERRA’s best selling essential oils and for good reason. Lavender essential oil can be used in hundreds of different ways from helping you sleep better to reducing stress.
Lavender is known as the ‘calming oil’ and is often used to assist in balancing the body. Lavender is most commonly used to soothe the occasional skin irritation, help improve quality of sleep, aid in calming nerves, and more.
Check out the following studies on how Lavender was shown to improve sleep and decrease stress.
  • Study: The use of lavender and rosemary essential oil sachets reduced test-taking stress, in graduate nursing students, as evidenced by lower scores on test anxiety measure, personal statements, and pulse rates. Read more about the study here.
  • Study: When lavender was applied topically, nurses in an ICU setting demonstrated decreased perception of stress, in the intervention group, during three 12-hour worked shifts. Read more about the study here.
Tips from dōTERRA:
Apply Lavender to the bottom of your feet, before going to bed, to aid in improving sleep quality. 
Diffuse Lavender to promote peace and a general sense of well-being.
Apply a small amount of Peppermint and Lavender to your temples to assist in reducing stress.
Chapped lips? Put 1 drop of Lavender on your lips to help sooth and soften.
