    It's overpriced pseudoscientific junk. They probably smell nice and that's about it.

    Meh you can find a heap of that going around. My landscaper is off his insomnia meds after I gave his wife a Vetiver sample and he is so grateful I shared a sample. The experiences speak for themselves. Not for you that's cool, but they work for so many people.

    DoTERRA are in research with a few universities in the US and about to put up articles for peer review. 😀

    I went to a doterra party the other week and the oils seem lovely, I was a bit put off by the price though but if this sample helps I'll def be buying some!
    This oil is more for starting the day, being grounded and calm before the day starts, it can also help them when feeling anxious or in a meltdown. If she responds well to it the soles of feet at bedtime or across wrists would be a great place to start

    I'm a scientist and sceptical of these things. But I tried it and some of the ones I tried really worked. I had indigestion for a week then my sister made me drink the digestion one and it fixed straight away. The sleep blend works on me but unfortunately it doesn't work on my youngest who wakes many times a night. If I have used it then it's a brutal night as I'm in a really deep sleep when I have to keep getting up to her! I think only a tranquilliser dart will work on her.

    If you enjoy the products then more power to you, I just think there is far more marketing than science at play. I've also seen some really unethical behaviour from people (not all, but some) selling these products including saying they can cure cancer and other serious illnesses.

    Doterra are cleaning up the network marketing industry and forbid any claim to cure anything. She should be reported as it goes against the company ethos. As I said they are putting articles up for peer review in medical journals so they are very serious and take compliance very seriously. You can get into serious trouble making claims to cure diseases.

    I monitor my teams social media and ensure they are not being irresponsible. I train them to be better than that.

    EDIT to add I also have a science degree however the change in my son was remarkable so I investigated further into this woo woo side and liked what I saw.

    I'll be interested to see those articles when available then. As for cleaning up the MLM industry, we will have to disagree on that point. Trademarking terms like "certified" to give an appearance of legitimacy is shady behaviour.

    You will find hundreds of examples of shady behaviour in the local supermarket with their advertising on packaged food. Now that gets me raging.

    We love Doterra oils in our house. The breathe blend in a diffuser is a great way to get a good nights sleep with a cold. We like to use geranium in the diffuser rather than incense when we're having people over, it's much safer for bubs and no carcinogens!
