Hi, if you are new to essential oils or a seasoned pro, you have come to the right place.  My name is Debbie Smith, the owner of The Oil Advantage. I started using essential oils in 2013 after exhaustive visits to multiple doctors and specialists. Relief for my year-round allergies was no small matter. I had tried everything that was available on the market.  As a chemical engineer and former first responder, I understood that not all medicines worked the same way for each person. My body chemistry and its response to any ingested substances were different from even my family’s responses.  I now was on a mission to find something that would work to ease the seasonal discomfort that lasted all year round for me. The research for help started and led me to essential oils.

When I was introduced to the Respiratory blend from my favorite oil company, I still was skeptical about the effects, how it would work and if it would work for me.  I was tired of being a guinea pig for the doctors and any new “cure” or regime that they wanted to try.  I  decided to give oils a try as this is what my grandmother would use when I was sick as a kid.  I often remember her fixing concoctions (some smelled good…others just awful), soaking a washcloth in it and putting that washcloth on my chest or throat when I stayed with her.  The cold or respiratory issues would be gone in one to two days.  I realized that I was rarely sick at my grandparents when I stayed with them.  But when I was home, I lived at the doctor’s office.  Amazing, yeah!

So my journey with oils began and now I am improving my health in so many areas. I have always wanted to be proactive in taking care of my health not wanting to leave it to chance. Being proactive to me meant that I would use the tools, these oils, that God provided to keep my body and health in the best condition possible.

So my question to you is this: What do you want to do in regard to your health? If you are interested in using essential oils, then you are not here by chance. Join me on this journey and let’s see where this road leads. I am learning new things each day and I would love to have friends to share with!





Back to School and Essential Oils

Hello, Everyone,

Now that school has started, I am sure that you have been bombarded with papers to sign, supplies to get and the never-ending need for money to buy clothes.  Boy, do I remember! Well, some things just do not change! But are you prepared for what your child will bring home from school?? How about the stomach upsets or respiratory issues? How would you like to have a way to minimize these interruptions to their schedule and yours?  There are so many essential oils that do just that.  There are those that build and support immunity as well as relieve the discomforts from the start. Best of all, essential oils are all natural. Using them is very simple. All essential oils can be diffused aromatically or applied topically and if 100% pure,  some can be taken internally.  I know, you have heard that is not good. But let me assure you that I use oils that are 100% pure and the company that I use has oils that can be taken internally.  Just another thought on using essential oils…if your child is below the age of two years old, dilute any oil by the following ratio ( 1 drop of oil to 1 TBSP of carrier oil). If your child is between two and six years old, use this ratio (1 drop to 1 tsp of carrier oil). If the child is older than six, you can apply the oil neat (no dilution) unless your child has sensitive skin.  One of the best ways to apply essential oils is to the bottom of the feet.  It only takes about 20-30 seconds to get into the system. Pretty cool, right!
