I contacted this DoTerra distributor a couple of months ago about doing a review and giveaway  and I was very excited when he agreed. He is a very knowledgeable and highly motivated person who gladly sent me two sample size bottles of essential oils to review. 

Lemon and Peppermint (sorry the picture is a bit dark)

These may be really small bottles, but with essential oils, a little bit goes a looooong way! Peppermint especially because the scent is quite strong. (in a good way!)                                                                      1. What are essential oils?
(info from a DoTerra info sheet)
They are extracts from plants.
They are 50 to 70 times more powerful than herbs.
1 drop of peppermint essential oil = 28 cups of peppermint tea!
                                                              2. A Natural Alternative to Synthetic Drugs
                                        An essential oil can have hundreds of different compounds.
                                        Each compound has a different medicinal benefit
                                        Pharmaceutical companies mimic natural compounds
                                        Over 250,000 Americans die each years from pharmaceuticals
                                                              3. They Kill Viruses and Bacteria
                                        Bacteria resides on the outside of a cell and viruses on the inside
            Pharmaceutical antibiotics are unable to penetrate the cell membrane to fight viruses
                           Essential oils penetrate the cell membrane and can kill viruses and bacteria
                                                                4. The DoTerra Difference
                                        Plant material is sourced from native origins
                                        Growers are selected, trained and monitored on harvest practices
                                        Each liter undergoes multiple 3rd party testing to certify purity and potency
   Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade is organic, verifies pure, free of pesticides & foreign contaminants
                                                                 5. CPTG Essential Oils Work Fast
                                                      One drop can service every cell of your body
                                                                 6. Three Ways to Use Essential Oils
                                        a. Aromatic
                                            1. Breathe in or use diffuser to:
                                            2. Kill germs in the air
                                            3. Open airways
                                            4. Affect mood, including depression
                                         b. Topical
                                            1. Apply to localized area
                                            2. From bottom of feet, enters blood stream within 30 seconds
                                            3. Apply to head, feet, ears, chest and the back of the neck
                                          c. Internal
                                             1. This method is specific to DoTerra CPTG Oils
                                             2. Take in a gel capsule, under tongue or in water                                      3. 3. Relieves issues in the: digestive system, mouth & throat, liver and urogenital tract                                          

As you can see, there are LOTS of ways to use these! I have used the peppermint for headaches and nausea. I have used the lemon on open wounds. Every time I have used them, it has been with great success.

There are many distributors of DoTerra and you can even become one yourself is you would like to! The DoTerra Distributor that I went through is DoTerra North America.

 Here I put the bottles next to an empty toilet paper tube for you to get a good idea as to their size. I want to make it clear that these are sample size bottles and not full size. But like I said, a little goes a long way! EDITED TO ADD: I WANT TO MAKE IT SUPER CLEAR THAT EVEN THOUGH THIS SIZE BOTTLE MAY BE FOR SALE THROUGH DOTERRA, THESE BOTTLES ARE *MAYBE* 1/4 FULL.

Here is the Prize Pack that our winner will win!!
