Day 1 – Oregano:
Kids & Adults both love to have their feet embraced in a warm moist towel. The Oregano Touch is a terrific addition to boosting the immune system prior to the new school year and change in season where we tend to see our immunity decline due to lack of Vitamin D and more time indoors.
- Oregano touch mixed with extra FCO if desired. Massage into feet for 5 mins then get a warm moist bath towel and wrap feet and ankles. Cover with a dry bath towel and sit until towels cool.
Day 2 – Copaiba:
- Onguard and/or Copaiba
- 1 Tsp Honey
- 1-2 cups Hot/Warm Water
- +Sip tea. 1 drop Copaiba or Onguard in 1 tbsp Honey mixed in a cup of extra warm water – boiled then cooled a little before adding copaiba or Onguard. This could even be added to Bulletproof coffee or an herbal tea or you can drink it alone.

PB Assist+ is a proprietary formula of pre-biotic fiber and six strains of probiotic microorganisms in a unique double-layer vegetable capsule. The time-release, double-capsule delivery system is designed to help protect the sensitive probiotic cultures from stomach acid.
PB Assist+Primary Benefits

The body’s production of enzymes is often enough, though the constant need to produce digestive enzymes can result in decreased levels that lead to digestive and other problems, especially as we age. Fresh, raw foods naturally contain enzymes that may contribute to proper digestion in the body. Since many of the foods found in a typical diet are cooked, pasteurized, or otherwise processed, food enzymes can become inactive. You can help reduce the internal demand for production of digestive enzymes by increasing consumption of fresh foods and by using DigestZen Terrazyme®.
DigestZen Terrazyme Primary Benefits
- Supports healthy digestion and metabolism of enzyme-deficient, processed foods*
- Supports conversion of food nutrients to cellular energy*
- Promotes gastrointestinal comfort and food tolerance*
- Supports healthy production of metabolic enzymes*
- Proprietary blend of 10 active whole-food enzymes
- Contains the doTERRA tummy tamer blend of Peppermint, Ginger, and Caraway Seed
- Sodium lauryl sulfate-free HPMC vegetable capsules
