When first starting out with doTERRA essential oils, it can be overwhelming because there are so many individual oils and blends to choose from. How do you know what you need? The following are some of the most popular doTERRA oils to date, mostly for their wide variety of uses and their appealing scents. doTERRA has fabulously organized them into two different categories for us:
Available in the Introductory Kit, Lavender, Peppermint, and Lemon are the go-to starter essential oils. They’re perfect to start using for common, every-day purposes.
Lavender. Diffuse to relax and ease into sleep, add a drop to your moisturizer for a soothing boost, or add to water and tea to ease tense feelings.
Peppermint. Energize your day by adding it to a diffuser, soothe nausea/bloating/gas by taking two drops in water, and rub into areas of tension on your neck, shoulders, and head.
- Lemon. Drink with water to cleanse your body, give your respiratory system support, and help with digestion. In addition, add to water in a spray bottle to clean household surfaces.
From the changing seasons and our immune systems, to the health of our skin, and a properly functioning digestive system, who doesn’t need help maintaining a healthy life? Each of the rest of the remaining seven oils on this list helps us do exactly that.
doTERRA On Guide®. Support and strengthen the immune and respiratory systems from seasonal or environmental threats*, diffuse to purify the air, and to give off an uplifting aroma.
Wild Orange. Diffuse in the room to uplift your mood when you’re having a bad day and purify the air, support your immune system and add flavor by adding two drops to your beverages.*
Frankincense. Support your cells with two drops in a veggie capsule*, apply to skin to help with razor bumps and other skin imperfections, and diffuse to add peace, relaxation, and satisfaction to your day.
doTERRA Breathe®. Maintain feelings of clear breathing by applying to your chest or diffusing into the air, rub into your feet or put into your palms and cup them around your nose to minimize the effects of seasonal threats.
Melaleuca (Tea Tree). Add to face wash for skin cleansing benefits, use it in your diffuser to cleanse and freshen the air, and apply to fingernails and toes to keep them looking healthy.
DigestZen®. Take internally for indigestion and bloating and to ease feelings of queasiness,* or rub on your stomach before a long flight for its calming aroma.
