doTerra Essential Oils…a Must Try!

If you’re like a lot of people (or like me) you may have dabbled with essential oils in the past without really studying the benefits and uses that they have. I was given the opportunity by doTERRA to use some of their oils and see the benefits. I learned a lot!!!

First – what is an essential oil?

An essential oil is a liquid that is usually distilled by steam or water from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other elements of a plant. Essential oils are not really oily-feeling at all. As a matter of fact, they’re mostly clear and seem to be more hydrating than oily.

Essential oils contain the true essence of the plant it was derived from and they’re highly concentrated. Just a little goes a long way.

One of the first things that I did since winter is coming on and the weather is getting more dry, was to make a lavender/peppermint sugar scrub for hands and feet. Not only does it smell heavenly, but it worked wonders with those rough spots. Here’s how:

Essential Oil Sugar Scrub

You’ll need only 3 things: 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup coconut oil (although other oils would work) and 10-12 drops of your favorite doTERRA essential oil. Mix the sugar and oil, add the essential oil then whisk together. Rub on rough, dry skin then rinse and pat dry. Follow with a moisturizing cream. Keep the scrub in an airtight container and use several times a week for great results!

I used several drops of the peppermint oil in bath water when the five-year old had a stuffy nose and it made him immediately feel better.

I also used a tip from JoAnn Fowler of doTERRA and used a few drops of the lavender essential oil in my laundry. Oh my goodness! My laundry has never had such a luscious scent!

JoAnn also suggested that I put a couple of drops of the lemon essential oil in my water. This is, by far, the best lemon water I have ever tasted!

I  LOVED the article101 Uses for Essential Oils“. I had no idea that these little drops of goodness could be used for so many different things!

There’s really no way for me to detail all of the ways that I have started using essential oils in everyday life. I find myself using them in so many different ways from health issues to cleaning, to using them with the kids.
