David, like other 7 year old boys, loves to play outdoors and be active. But until two months ago, his activity was greatly restricted due to his asthma. Medications were a constant part of his routine, until his mom was introduced to dōTERRA essential oils. Here is David’s story, as told by his mother Bekah:
“We have only been using the oils for a little over 2 months, but they have had a significant impact on our family. Betsy Holmes introduced me to dōTERRA’s essential oils at the end of February–she was here visiting and David was in the middle of an allergic asthma attack. Instead of giving him his scheduled albuterol treatment, we opted to try the Breathe oil. Within minutes he stopped coughing and has whole-heartedly requested the oils instead of his treatments ever since then.
He actually went 2 entire months without an inhaler or steroids. Recently his school nurse administered his inhaler without calling me first and it actually brought on more symptoms instead of relieving them. So, David is hooked on the power of essential oils. We diffuse Breathe at night and apply it to his chest as needed. He is loving it! People around here know my David and how he’s struggled. His story is touching hearts and changing lives with dōTERRA – and he’s super stoked to be a part of it!
David, who is in second grade, was asked to do a social studies project on what he wants to be when he grows up. The project actually required that he answer some questions about his aspirations, and draw a picture of himself, which I totally wish I would have taken a picture of also! This letter was a follow-up to that project. He brought it to me last night.
Thank you, Bekah and David, for sharing your story with us!
