Lavender is the most well-known essential oil. You already know that it helps with relaxation and sleep, right?

 

Did you know that it's also great for your skin? If you have any itchy, scaly, flaky, bumpy, or seasonally irritated skin, lavender is your best friend. Sunburns or bug  bites? Lavender. Burned your wrist on the oven door? Lavender. Itchy eyes? Lavender around the eye socket (keep it out of your eyes, though ok?). 

It is lovely at bedtime: swipe it on your pillow, apply it topically to your wrists and feet, and/or diffuse it at the bedside. Turn your bedroom into a spa!

Lemon

So fresh and so CLEAN! Use this citrus rockstar to freshen up your home, your mood, AND your cleansing organs! 

Raise your hand if you HATE the smell of fresh lemons... Nope. You don't. Nobody hates that! Especially these lemons, sourced from Italy.

 

Diffusing Lemon Essential Oil (or finding excuses to clean your kitchen with homemade lemon oil-infused cleaners) is uplifting to the mood. It's liquid sunshine! 

But that's not all... Lemon EO is supportive to your LUNGS. (The very first time I used it was in the middle of a wintery night when my son was hack hack hacking away in his bed... which was scary and exhausting for both he and I. This Lemon oil opened his airways and he went right back to sleep! "IT'S A MIRACLE!", I thought! Nope. Just doTERRA. 

Taken internally, Lemon can assist with "seasonal respiratory discomfort" (ie. sneezing, itching eyes and throat, and fogginess) and provide cleansing and digestive benefits. It is recommended to add 1-2 drops to a large GLASS of water as often as you desire throughout the day. You'll love the boost of energy it gives you! 

 

Tip: don't put lemon oil in plastic cups or bottles. Use glass or stainless steel. 

Use: Safe for internal, topical, and aromatic use. Dilution recommended.

doTERRA Sourced: Italy (Meet the growers here)

Pair: With Lavender and Peppermint to combat seasonal annoyances.

Oregano

Oregano is such a powerhouse oil! It's best used for wart and skin tag removal (keep a diluting carrier oil on hand because this oil is hot!), fungus and yeast issues, and as a powerful pair with melaleuca for bacterial issues. It's also great when cooking italian food! Use sparingly in your pasta sauce, though... less is more!  

Just remember that this oil always brings a kick! 

I love to refer people to TWO great Oregano videos: 

1. Dr. Josh Axe on Oregano Oil

2. Dr. David Steuer on how Oregano and Tea Tree Oil work together on a bacteria cell. 

Learn all there is to know about ole Oregano: (<--that was a rhyme)

Frankincense

FRANKIE BABY!

 

"When in doubt, pull Frank out!" That's what we say about this ​AMAZING oil. It's super anti-inflammatory and amazing for cellular health. So grounding on an emotional level too. And it's an anti-aging GIFT for your skin! 

Guys, there are over 100 published research studies on the benefits of Frankincense! Browse some here.

OnGuard... I feel like you, whoever you are who is reading this, should already know about this powerhouse blend. Do you? DO I EVEN NEED TO TELL YOU? Fine. 

This blend of cinnamon, wild orange, eucalyptus, rosemary, and clove boosts immune and respiratory system function, especially during cold, winter months. It purifies the air and is a favorite for diffusing, thanks to its welcoming citrus-spice aroma and many beneficial properties. (Smells like Christmas!) This blend helps keep you healthy so you can pursue your passions and care for your cute family.

On Guard is popularly used for its therapeutic benefits, as an internal supplement, and for its effectiveness as a topical cleansing agent. To support a healthy immune system, rub doTERRA On Guard on the bottom of your children’s feet each morning before school. Or make them do it if they have stinky feet and/or if they won't sit still! 

This oil is SO POPULAR AND SO EFFECTIVE that doTERRA has created a whole line of products that are proudly centered on OnGuard as the main ingredient. Cleaning Concentrate, hand wash, hand sanitizer, throat drops, etc... Get some!

Breath. Respiratory. Blend.

Go ahead and tell me what you think this oil is good for...

DING DING DING! If you said "helping people breathe" then you are RIGHT! And it works so so so well!! 

Put a few drops in the diffuser. Rub it on your feet. Dilute it on your chest. Inhale it from your palms. ALL OF THAT. IT'S SO GOOD!

What's in it? Lemon, Laurel, Eucaplyptus, Ravensara, Ravintsara, Peppermint, Cardamom, and Melaleuca Tea Tree.

 

This oil (along with OnGuard Blend) has given DAYS and DAYS back to my son who has struggled with respiratory health. It's one of our favorites!  

Breathe Blend is NOT FOR INTERNAL USE! But but but... doTERRA has Breathe Respiratory Drops that you can suck on when you are feeling tight and congested! Pair that with Breathe oil in the diffuser and on your chest and you'll be breathing easy!

Digestzen Digestive Blend

You know that commercial for the "pink stuff" that soothes your digestive track? And all the ailments that the pink stuff helps with? YOU DON'T NEED THAT NASTY PINK STUFF ANYMORE. You can use Digestzen instead. For way cheaper. 

Things not moving along as they should? Maybe moving along a little too freely? Stomach churning over your lunch choices? Got a volcano heat rising up your esophagus? Digestzen is your best friend. The oils in this blend work together to naturally soothe that digestive track and brings things back to a HAPPY REGULARITY. 

What's in it? Anise Seed, Peppermint Plant, Ginger Root, Caraway Seed, Coriander Seed, Tarragon Plant, and Fennel Seed essential oils. It kinda smells and tastes like black liquorice. AND IT WORKS SO WELL!

Deep Blue Soothing Blend

THIS OIL BLEND IS A FAVORITE!! 

So soothing to your muscles and joints. Whether you are an 11-year old boy whose legs are "growing like weeds" and aching in the middle of the night... or you are an old geezer whose knees are mad about all the sports you played when you thought you were immortal in your 20's... or maybe you are a 35 year old friend of mine who is looking for muscle relief from that big workout we did yesterday... YOU ALL WILL BE SO GRATEFUL FOR DEEP BLUE! 

What's in it? Eight essential oils combine synergistically to create a powerful blend: Blue Chamomile, Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Ylang Ylang, Helichrysum, Blue Tansy, and Osmanthus

AND IT ALSO COMES IN A LOTION RUB FORM! You'll want that too. 

TIP: This oil only comes in a 5ml size bottle (pictured above) in the starter kits. Never comes in a 15ml size. Don't be calling me to say your Deep Blue is small. It's not! And please try not to give it a "short person" complex. Small but mighty! 

Use: NOT safe for internal use. Not meant for diffusing. PUT IT WHERE IT HURTS, BABY! Topical use only for this one.  Dilute it too! that'll protect the skin and help you spread it around/massage it in better. 

Click here for more info on Deep Blue. And here for my very favorite video on the power and gift of this oil.
