This product recommendation really makes me skittish.

I generally avoid direct sales/network marketing/MLM and never thought I would be recommending a product that is sold in this way. I’ve tried selling in this way before and don’t care for it. It’s just not my style.

I didn’t purchase this product at any party or class, nor did I sign up to be a sales representative. I purchased it on Amazon.com just to try it out. I have several friends who are all sales consultants for this particular company. I love them all and didn’t want to hurt their feelings should I not like the product.


deep_blueI purchased a bottle of doTerra’s Deep Blue.

I ordered it along with some other essential oils and a set of glass roll-on bottles. My original plan was to use the roller ball bottles as a different applicator method while experimenting with my own essential oil blend. On a whim, I mixed the Deep Blue with an Apricot oil carrier and poured some into one of the roll-on bottles. Then I let it sit and forgot all about it.

Again, on a whim, one day it occurred to me to try some on my lower back during a fibro flare.  I went to sleep and forgot about it. To my surprise, I woke without any back pain or stiffness. Obviously it didn’t last indefinitely, but for a short time, it did help me get some much needed pain-free sleep.

It wasn’t long before I started testing it out on Migraine and Cluster Headache attacks while continuing to use it for the everyday aches and pains that come with Fibromyalgia. It took some experimenting before I was able to get consistent results.

Sometimes…
If I catch it early enough…
I can stop an attack just the using of my makeshift Deep Blue roll-on.

It doesn’t happen every time.
It’s not a miracle.
It’s not a cure.
Yet Deep Blue has definitely earned its place in my toolkit.


NOTE: If you are part of the company I mention, please don’t contact me offering your services.

Here’s my answer:

No, thank you. I have a class already scheduled with a friend in the business. Don’t try to poach her customer. I already have a half-dozen personal friends I must disappoint.
