There are a lot of essential oils available out there. And I will readily admit that I own several. But if you’re new to essential oils or you just want to keep things simple, consider these 10 must-have doTERRA essential oils for a healthy home.
The calming essential oil. Apply a drop of lavender essential oil to the temples or diffuse aromatically to help ease tension and for a more peaceful sleep. A drop can also be used to soothe minor skin irritations as it helps skin recover quickly.
Peppermint has many uses. One of my favorites is as a natural energy-booster (read how to do that here). Peppermint also promotes healthy respiratory function and clear breathing – just dilute a drop with a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil and rub on your chest or simply diffuse it aromatically.
A drop of doTERRA essential oil can also be added to a glass of water to help alleviate occasional stomach upset.
The King of the Oils. Frankincense has many uses, including helping to build and maintain a healthy immune system. Just rub a drop on the back of your neck each morning. That simple routine can also help promote feelings of peace and relaxation.
In addition, frankincense is great for the skin! I use it in my moisturizer on a daily basis as it is often used to reduce the appearance of blemishes and rejuvenate the skin.
Breathe essential oil will help you do just that – breathe easier. This blend was designed to maintain clear airways and breathing and it does a great job of supporting overall respiratory health. It also helps minimize the effect of seasonal threats – I can’t do without it once everything starts blooming.
Just add some to your diffuser or dilute and rub a drop or two on the chest and back.
A lot of people know melaleuca as tea tree essential oil. It’s well-loved by many, and for good reason! Melaleuca is renowned for its cleansing, soothing and rejuvenating effects on the skin. (It’s in my face wash.)
Melalecua also helps purify and freshen the air and protect against environmental and seasonal threats. There’s a reason it’s a must-have for natural cleaning!
This doTERRA blend is one oil I never leave home without, especially if I’m planning on eating out. DigestZen aids in the digestion of foods, soothes occasional stomach upset and maintains a healthy gastrointestinal tract.
Rub a drop on your stomach, add a drop to a glass of water, or, if you’re feeling brave, put a drop under your tongue for amazingly fast relief.
7. Deep Blue
This blue essential oil is helpful for soothing sore muscles and achy joints. Use it pre- or post-workout for a comforting sensation of cooling and warmth to problem areas and to support healthy circulation to muscles and joints.
Oregano is a wonderful (and powerful) cleansing agent. When it comes to the body, oregano is one powerful oil. It has immune-enhancing benefits and is an excellent source of antioxidants. It even supports healthy digestion and respiratory function. Plus it makes a great addition to homemade soups and sauces.
doTERRA lemon essential oil smells just like a fresh lemon. I love adding a couple drops to my water for it’s wonderful flavor and its ability to naturally cleanse the body and aid digestion.
Lemon can be used in the diffuser to cleanse and purify the air and surfaces, promote a positive mood and support healthy respiratory function. It can even soothe an irritated throat. Lemon essential oil is great for so much!
This special doTERRA blend is excellent at supporting healthy immune function – rub a drop on the bottoms of your feet each day. You can also diffuse it aromatically to protect against environmental threats and purify the air.
You’ll love the energizing, uplifting aroma.
