What’s All The Buzz About Essential Oils? by Leah Hutchinson Healthcare in today’s economy is not easy to come by for all Americans. In a study conducted by the Commonwealth fund in 2012, 41 percent of adults (2 of 5 adults, or an estimate of 75 million people) reported that they had a difficult time paying their bills, even with health insurance,
and had been turned into collection agencies or had to change their way of life to afford payment of their medical bills. The truth is, even as a developed and prosperous society, we are still torn between affordability and being healthy. Are you literally sick of this? A microscopic virus can have you down for days and some like me, can’t afford to miss

face with our health. doTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils are a gift from the earth for our health.

The fascinating part: naturally our bodies work with the oils and they work on our behalf just as they would for the plants immunity. They not only support our bodies systems, but get to the cellular level of the problem, which helps our bodies balance and heal. If we provide our body with the tools it needs, it will in turn heal itself. Our bodies regenerate new red blood cells every 4 months; furthermore our entire body regenerates itself in 7-10 years!

I learned about doTERRA Essential Oils from two of my friends Jen Kruba and Jeff Frey. Jen Kruba told me her story on how she uses these incredible oils! Her story was intriguing to me and I wanted to share it with you. Here is just a little background on Jen Kruba. “First and foremost. I am a mother of 3 beautiful children. I am also a Licensed Massage Therapist and Wellness Advocate. I have used essential oils for over 15 years. I am unique in the ways I have raised my children. After birthing my son in a traditional hospital environment, I decided I didn’t want to do that again and chose to homebirth my next two children.
