::::GIVEAWAY EXTENDED THROUGH JANUARY 15, 2015 SINCE DOTERRA IS STILL OFFERING THE FRANKINCENSE PROMOTION::::
This giveaway was so popular last year that I wanted to do it again. Read on to see how you could win a free bottle of Myrrh, On Guard AND one of the new Petal Diffusers!
My family has celebrated pretty much every holiday with great enthusiasm (as most families do) but one holiday we celebrated that a lot of others may not is Three Kings Day. It is a date celebrated throughout Latin America, Spain, and in many Hispanic communities of the United States. This is the Epiphany of the church calendar, the 12th day after Christmas, when the Magi arrived bearing gifts for baby Jesus.
It was a very special holiday, maybe even the most important holiday, for my grandmother who was born and raised in Puerto Rico. She would actually have us set out grass and water before bed (sound familiar?) and we would receive 3 special gifts the next morning. In Latin America, January 6th, and not necessarily Christmas, is the day that children actually receive their gifts. I always enjoyed hearing the story of the three wise men bringing these special gifts...especially knowing what I do now about essential oils and their versatile uses and meanings.
In addition to the honor and status implied by the value of the gifts of the magi, scholars think that these three were chosen for their special spiritual symbolism about Jesus himself—gold representing his kingship, frankincense a symbol of his priestly role, and myrrh a prefiguring of his death and embalming—an interpretation made popular in the well-known Christmas carol “We Three Kings.”
I plan to continue the Three Kings Day tradition with my little ones once they are older as another opportunity to teach about Jesus.
I thought it'd be fun to share about this holiday and give away a few oils too. Here is what you could win. (everyone gets Frankincense by the way so technically you're all winners ;-))
Perhaps the most precious of the ancient oils, frankincense is highly sought after by modern consumers for its many uses—including relaxation, immune support, and mood enhancement. Learn more about this valuable oil by watching the video below. It is a holy oil in the Middle East. Oman, where doTERRA's Frankincense is from, is believed to have been a center of the frankincense trade along the recently rediscovered "Incense Road”.
Myrrh is often referred to as a "liquid bandaid". It was commonly used on infant's umbilical cords for healing making it a very useful gift for the Christ child. Other uses include arthritis, bronchitis, colds, cough, and digestive issues. Further, it stimulates the immune system and also stimulates blood circulation that can relieve pain, subduing swelling and promoting tissue regeneration. doTERRA's Myrrh is grown in Ethiopia and taken from the gum resin of the Myrrh tree or shrub.
"Gold" On Guard
Ok, so I'm not going to give you Gold (because I don't have any) and Frankincense is the oil nicknamed "liquid gold" but since you already receive that FREE from doTERRA this month, I thought I'd include On Guard as the Gold. It is probably one of our most valued oils in our home. It is a blend of wild orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary and is a powerhouse blend for immune support. It has been lab tested to kill MRSA and decrease the symptoms of the flu virus! We use it daily on the bottoms of all our feet for immune support, diffuse in the air to kill germs and bacteria and I even clean with it. Health is worth more than gold in my opinion so I thought it a fitting oil to replace Gold in the giveaway.
PLUS this year I am also including one of the new Petal Diffusers. It has a relaxing mist and soft white ambient light, making it ideal for nighttime diffusion, and can cover up to 100 square feet. The Petal Diffuser has three timed settings—1, 2, and 4 hours—allowing you to customize the release of essential oils into the air. It's awesome for home or the office.
