When doTERRA came out with the Yarrow Pom capsules, I was really excited to try them. I wanted to find some reviews on Amazon before I bought them, but since they were a new product released for 2020 there weren’t very many. So I went to Instagram to see if I could find anyone posting about them. Livelife.eo was super helpful and answering my questions as to if she could tell a difference in her skin while taking Yarrow Pom capsules.
That’s what I love about being in doTERRA. The online community is super helpful and everyone shares their secrets on how to succeed. Many people who join doTERRA are people looking for answers to their health concerns. I am one of those people and I have had a lot of success with my ailments using essential oils. That’s what inspires us to sell for this company.
Anyway, livelife.eo said she noticeably saw a glow to her skin just after a few days of taking them. Well, I am all about that glow so I was super excited to add them to my normal order of supplements. Yarrow Pom is also a powerful antioxidant so I thought it might be helpful with my rosacea and any inflammation from injuries.
I have never been disappointed with a doTERRA product so my hopes were high. After taking it for a few days I noticed a visible glow. I was so excited to see my skin transform.
The thing about rosacea is that it can make your skin really flaky and feeling thick. Almost like leather. Your skin is constantly inflamed and that can make it feel tough like a leather glove. It feels like no moisture is getting through and it’s just laying on top of your skin. No matter how much you put on. It is very hard for rosacea prone skin to soak in moisture. It can often look greasy as your natural oils just sit on top or it can look rather dull. The Yarrow Pom capsules put a lot of life back into my overall appearance.
For this reason, I always use rose oil. If I have any active rosacea acne flare ups (which look similar to regular acne) then I use lavender oil. Lavender is great for calming any sort of active pimples or sores down. I make my own blend in a roller bottle with fractionated coconut oil.
Why is rose oil so great for rosacea? Like I said, rosacea prone skin can get tough and it needs an acid based moisturizer to help get into the skin. Rose essential oil has a naturally occurring hyalauronic acid. Hyalauronic acid is great for getting moisturizers past the first layers of skin. That’s why it’s in a lot of “acne prone” skin care lines. Acne, acne scars, and rosacea makes it difficult for the moisturizer, toner, serum, or cleanser to get into those deeper layers of skin. Hyalauronic acid is great for healing any irritations or fade scars and pigmentation.
When I started using Rose Touch from doTERRA I could visibly tell the difference in a few days. My fine lines faded quite a bit and my deep ice pick scars from rosacea acne were becoming not so deep. My friends began to notice and complimented by saying my textured skin was smoothing out.
I was applying Rose Touch on my face and neck morning and night and using nothing else as a moisturizer. I went through it in a month. It’s pretty expensive so lately I’ve been rolling just enough on my face and neck to combine with Nature’s Gate Oil Free Lemon Verbena Moisturizer. I’ll roll on a bit of the rose oil, then I’ll take three pumps of the moisturizer and apply it to my face and neck.
In that past, I have tried doTERRA’s Virage line, but I enjoy making my own roller blends and using Rose Touch too much. Plus I don’t like to use cleansers or soaps on my face. Instead I do the oil cleansing method (OCM) with a microfiber wash cloth. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated and fine lines looking plump when I step out of the shower. The woman in the video is using a cotton wash cloth, which makes me cringe. Cotton is too harsh for the skin, causing micro-tears leading to wrinkles. A microfiber towel is much gentler and great at taking off dead skin and other debris.
For the oil, I like to mix about 5 drops of lavender oil with franctionated coconut oil in a travel size bottle I keep in the shower. You can also buy MCT oil in the health food / supplement section like I do, which might be a little cheaper. It’s the same oil, just branded differently.
I have recently started making my own toner as it helps in keeping my rosacea acne down. My friend has a kangen water machine, which produces alkaline water at 9.0 pH. It also has a setting for what is called beauty water at an alkalinity of 6.0. It’s slightly acidic so it’s meant to slough off any oils, debris, and dead skin. I combine this water with rose water from the Middle Eastern market in a glass spray bottle.
Normally I put a few drops of lavender and frankincense in it, but I’m out of frankincense. Instead I’ve been putting just a teaspoon of raw honey only. Shake it up real good and spray. Ah…..The raw honey is a great toner for fine lines and problematic skin since it helps to balance the bacteria. It’s also a less expensive alternative to frankincense. The reason why I prefer frankincense is because it contains naturally occurring retinol. You’ve probably seen retinol-containing products in the anti-aging section. Also, the prescription based gel Retin-A is laboratory produced retinol.
Judging by the photo above you can tell that my skin is still problematic, but look at what it used to be before my doTERRA journey two years ago:
My rosacea calming down is only by default. I started taking doTERRA’s Life Long Vitality Pack for mood enhancement and nerve and back pain. It has helped take my nerve pain away and lifts my mood. Incidentally enough it calmed much of the inflammation in my body down, which calmed my rosacea down significantly.
I still have a slight red cast to my skin, which I am working on. I’ve been taking sarsaparilla for about a week on the advice of a beautiful woman who works in the health and beauty section in my local Sprouts. It’s meant for the gut, which is where rosacea starts. I have noticed a slight improvement. However, next month I am going to order doTERRA’s GX Assist.
You might be wondering how I can afford many of doTERRA’s expensive (but worth it!) products. Well, I’ve been with them as an advocate for two years. I make commissions, but before I was making any money I was collecting “loyalty reward points”. They work just like the points you earn when you use your customer card at the grocers. The more you order, the more points you accumulate. The more expensive the product you buy, the more points you collect from that purchase. These points act like money, which you apply towards getting your products paid for. I’ve been with doTERRA for two years and my supplements run around $90 altogether so I always have points to use.
That’s why it pays to join as a Wellness Advocate or as a Wholesale Customer instead of ordering off of Amazon. Follow my video below to find out how you can join.
