doTERRA Breathe from My Natural Family


Why I love essential oils:

I first discovered a passion for essential oils when I was 19 years old. When I got my first “real job” I blew a good portion of each paycheck on oils. My Dad thought I was insane, let me tell you. After a while, my passion for oils kind of took the back burner as life got in the way. Education, Marriage and a Family became the important thing in my life. Now, I am older and wiser and I know that I should start to incorporate 100% pure essential oils back into our lives because I believe it is a safe alternative to many common medicines prescribed today. 

As I said in a past post I was accepted to be a part of the blogger program from My Natural Family, and they agreed to send me monthly doTERRA products in exchange for my honest review and giveaways on The Nurse Mommy. The featured product of the month is Breathe. This is just perfect for my little family. My oldest son has viral induced asthma, so when he gets a respiratory illness, he gets a little sicker than your average kid. My hubby also suffers from terrible allergies. I do suffer from seasonal allergies but on a much smaller scale than my two loves. 

When I opened the top of the Breathe oil, I immediately fell in love. The scent is wonderful and so much better smelling then those over the counter “cold remedies” you find. I diffused the product in my living room to see if it eased any of the allergy symptoms my family was having, it did help. My husband’s itchy eyes, and stuffy nosed eased up almost immediately.  The scent is a little on the stronger side, so I do not recommend diffusing it longer than 15-20 minutes tops. We also put a few drops mixed with coconut oil on the bottom of hubbies feet to see if he woke up with relief from his allergies, and he told me that he breathed much better that night and even felt more well rested! 
“doTERRA’s Breathe Essential Oil Blend – Antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, expectorant, cell and tissue repair, asthma relief; using Breathe can give relief from colds, bronchitis, sore throats, sinusitis, coughs and respiratory congestion. Decongests sinus passages, combats lung infections and relieves allergy symptoms.”

Other Uses:
The fantastic thing about this essential oil from doTerra is that it is multi-functional. It can help with pain not related to respiratory issues, as well common issues that do occur with colds- like sore throats. It is also great to mix with others oils for diffusion or even to apply topically for pain relief. One of the most surprising things I learned on the website is that it can even help with shingles just by adding coconut oil and spritzing on!! 

As with all the doTERRA products I have tried I have been very impressed with Breathe. doTERRA is just a phenomenal company, and they have become such a big hit, because they work- and the offer PURE essential oils. It is much better quality then some of the knockoffs you are likely to find in your local chain stores. doTerra can be purchased through My Natural Family for only $24.49 for a 15ml bottle. You can also receive a sample to see how this works for your family for just the $1 shipping price!
