    My first experience with DoTerra

    Today I would like to talk to you about my first experience with DoTerra. I was very skeptical about this whole thing because I really didn’t think that some oils can help with pains and colds.

But, you need to make sure that you buy the right kind. You wouldn’t want to for example plant a weeping willow in a small garden. A tree-like that has a huge root system that seeks out water. So, if you plant it within 50 foot of a drain or water main the chances are the roots will invade and break the pipe. An issue like that would cost thousands to sort out.
