I just want you to be well : doTERRA oils

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen me bang on about doTERRA essential oils lately. I know I am late to the party (because you’re telling me you love them already!). BUT if you’re new then today I have a quick explanation on how you can get started yourself.

I am loving these oils, they really do assist my new wellness journey. They make me feel more motivated, less tired, less stressed. I am not just saying that. I had been asked so many times to try them and I just thought it was another one of “those things”. I was too ill last year with Crohn’s and I couldn’t even let the word “oils” enter my head. It was just all too much. But I wish I had listened.

If you’re new here then you can go back and read my very long suffering blog posts on my battle with complex Crohn’s Disease since I was 18 years old. I made a big decision 4 months ago to have permanent colostomy surgery. The past 2 years had been very debilitating and I didn’t leave my house very much. I was very unwell with re-occurring sepsis and was visiting the toilet hourly (and showering 3-4 times a day). I was down to about 58 kgs. It was really wearing me down. Mentally too.

I just wanted to feel well again, and I wanted to get on top of my illness so that I could live a better life. I took the plunge and had the surgery. Slowly I started to recover and was feeling better every single day. It was like everything had shifted for me in life. I was determined to keep it this way and no matter what I did not want to fall back down that illness hole ever again (although the surgery is not a cure, but it was a good step for me to take!). I am STILL on Humira injections so am taking traditional medicines too.

I was starting to feel so good after the surgery. I look back now and realised how miserable I was. I thought I had moments of wellness in the past few years, but I didn’t. I was just sick all the time. I couldn’t commit to anything and I could never really work properly. I wasn’t the nicest person to be around too.

So, in this new found wellness (due t o the surgery) I was determined to do everything I could to stay well. I needed to add things in to help me and I wanted to change my energy levels, my moods and hormones, and just stay on top of things.

My girlfriend asked me to come to a doTERRA essential oils class with her and I did. Now I haven’t looked back! Of course using essential oils is not a cure for anything at all. But it’s one of the best aids out there. And if you’re not feeling so great, you have nothing to lose.

Since learning and using the oils I have decided that these have helped to change my life. I am not just saying that.

If you’re healthy then your mind is healthy, so is your family, your business, your relationships. I have a place to compare myself to – and that was this time last year. It wasn’t a great space to be in. Now, I can see that wellness (and me being the Mum and the main person in our house) has helped to change everything here at home. If I’m not well, then no one in my house truly is either. Does that makes sense?

So I want you to be well too! How can YOU takes steps to feel better? Or how can your kids feel better? I am not just someone who decided to jump in to the wellness space just because. I am someone who has lived some pretty disgusting illness symptoms for 22 years, I now wear a colostomy bag and am trying to feel well again.

doTERRA is just wonderful for key things like sleep, relaxation and energy levels across your entire family.


I’ve written a step-by-step blog post here. It’s so easy!


  • Sleep – Diffuse Lavender Peace
  • Relaxation – Frankincense, Elevation, Balance, Cheer, Motivate
  • Gut – DigestZen
  • Immune – Peppermint and On Guard
  • Moods – Clary Calm

You can diffuse any of them, or dab on your wrists, behind your ears or on your temples. I have a full blog post on how you use here. They last a really long time! Pinterest have so many recipes so you can make up your own. Please read here though on safe ways to use the oils.

What have you got to lose?! Get started today. You won’t regret it. Email me if you also need a hand setting things up because I can assist. If you also think you might like to become a Wellness Advocate (instead of a customer) and begin sharing the oils with your own network then go here to read more.

If you live in Wagga Wagga I have workshops here.


If you join with me I have a private Facebook group set up where I can guide you with any oils.


I am looking at building my own team! So this means, I am looking for people to share the oils and make some spending money along the way. If you are interested in the freedom of your own business then make sure you contact me and I’ll chat to you about helping each.

♥ KC.

PS. Don’t forget that before I started loving oils, I loved crystals more, and still do. They hold a lot of power for me.

    Hi Katrina,
    Not sure if you’ve already had the oil get together yet, but I’m definitely interested. Very keen to learn more.
    Thank you.

    Any advice on a blockage when wearing a colostomy. Trying to help my mum who is now being sick, At the end of my tether. I have just started using doterra and I love them. I know you can rub oil on your stomach to help but not sure which ones. Any advice would be welcome.
