doTERRA Oil of the Month – Past Tense

Jun 16, 2018 | Essential Oils


Our resident doTERRA specialist Julie Barfoot suggests…

doTERRA’s Past Tense synergistically combines the powerful relaxation qualities of essential oils such as wintergreen leaf, lavender flower, peppermint plant, frankincense resin, cilantro herb, marjoram leaf, Roman chamomile flower, basil leaf and rosemary leaf.

Formulated by doTERRA to relieve headaches Past Tense can even avert the onset of a migraine. It comes conveniently in a roll-on bottle for easy application. Its aroma is fresh, minty and herbal however this essential oil combination is warm on the skin (note: too much can be hot). Past Tense can quickly ease tension, relax the muscles and even calm the emotions if stressed. It is an oil blend that gives great relief.

Suggested Uses:

  • Apply to the neck and shoulders to relieve stress and release tension.
  • Use before taking an exam, presenting to the public or any other high-stress situations.
  • Use at night before bedtime to promote a restful night’s sleep. Too cooling to put in a bath.

Aromatic Diffusion:

Inhale directly from the bottle at regular intervals throughout the day. Roll a small amount in the palms of the hands, rub hands together vigorously and inhale its therapeutic aroma.

Topical use:

Roll once only onto temples, behind the ears and across the back of the neck and shoulders, even the lower back.


  • Be mindful when using Past Tense!
  • Avoid the eyes, inner ears, delicate facial skin areas and dilute further with doTERRA’s Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity. If you touch your eyes or mouth after using Past Tense dilute with an oil, not water.

If you are looking for more natural solutions and would like to order Past Tense Roller Blend we are happy to do that for you at the front desk counter at The Living Well Studio.

As per the government health guidelines on the 22nd of March 2020 non essential services will be closed. This does not include us. While we are still open for our usual services we will be practicing strict and heightened hygiene measures during this time to prevent further spread of COVID-19.

From the PM’s address today, we want to be clear we are not a gym. We are a health care practice, that provides services to optimise health and reduce pain from musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. Our studio team are ensuring complete high grade sanitisation of props and equipment that will only be single person use for each session, and ensuring social distancing. The staff and studio have had no connection to the COVID-19 at this time.

As per the government health guidelines we will not allow access to our services if you answer “yes” to any of the below:

Have you been overseas in the last 14 days?
Have you been in contact with anyone who tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
Do you have a dry cough, shortness of breath, fever or sore throat?
If answered yes to any of the above, please call the COVID-19 hotline on 1800 020 080.

We ask patients who are at risk to please let us know before your appointment so we can discuss your position. This includes immune-suppressed, the elderly and those who have been in high-risk areas. We also ask that you call the clinic if you do develop COVID-19 or have come in contact with someone who has so we can act according to the government recommendations.

For all treatments, our linen is being changed for every client and a wipe down of all equipment used. We ask that you remain in your car until your treatment time to minimise patient to patient contact in the waiting area. We also ask that you use ‘tap and go’ for your payment method rather than cash. Also we will not require you to sign your health fund slip to minimise cross use of pens between staff and patients. All our door handles and surfaces are regularly being cleaned during the day.

We ask everyone who comes in for group therapy sessions.

Bring a large towel and socks.
Keep 1.5m distance between yourself and others.
Wash your hands before and after the class.
If you need to cough or sneeze, cover your face and wash or sanitise hands immediately.
If you wish to wear gloves we have them available for you.
Online and Telehealth will be an option in the very near future….watch this space.

We are understanding of each and everyone’s individual position and we deeply care for your health and encourage everyone to take steps to keep strong and healthy at this time. Please feel free to call or email our staff to voice your concern and receive guidance. We are dedicated to informing you of our position and future movements in relation to Covid-19.
