how do you use essential oils?

It's easy. There are 3 main ways to use them. You really can't screw it up.

You can use essential oils aromatically and topically. doTERRA essential oils (and only doTERRA), can also be used internally.

My passion is to empower you with dōTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) essential oils, and ways you can use them for overall health, wellness, beauty and cleaning. Essential oils are an alternative to traditional remedies and are considered part of a holistic approach to natural health & wellness. You can use doTERRA to help with wellness goals like cleanse, detox, lose weight, boost immunity. These oils can even replace common and toxic cleaning products.

We say to put an oil on you is to put an oil in you. Our skin is our largest organ so anything we put on it gets into our bloodstream. This is why we need to be so choosy in our products. An essential oil can service every cell in our body within 20 minutes. When dealing with acute symptoms such as sore muscles, we apply the oils direct to the affected area; using a carrier oil such as a Fractionated Coconut Oil for sensitive skin and small children and babies. Anything else we can apply to the bottom of the feet. The bottom of the feet is the most common place as it has the largest pores. An oil applied to the bottom of the feet can get into the bloodstream within 30 seconds. An average dose for an adult is 1-3 drops, a child is 1 drop and a baby is a half drop (simply placing your finger over the top of the bottle and tilting it.)


This is as simple as opening the bottle and breathing in the aromatic compounds. You can also do this by placing a drop of oil in the palm of your hand, rubbing your hands together, cupping your hands and bringing them to your nose & mouth to breathe in. Finally, you can diffuse essential oils. This means simply putting them into a diffuser specially made for essential oils (doTERRA makes 3 amazing diffusers) and then allowing them to be dispersed into the air. This not only can affect all moods and emotions of a room, but it cleans the air as well by removing all pathogens and microbes; killing bacteria & viruses.

This is specific to doTERRA. ONLY ingest doTERRA essential oils. They are the only oils approved to take internally. You can take them internally by adding a few drops to water, putting them inside an empty vegetable capsule, or applying them directly under the tongue. When drinking them in water be sure to use a glass or stainless steel because the oils are cleansing and detoxifying they will begin to clean any plastic, paper or styrofoam and break it down. Why would we take oils internally? We would take them internally to address specific internal needs. Adding citrus oils to our water daily can be a major health benefit helping with glutathione levels, improving mood, immunity boost and more.

Natural aromatic compounds found in plants

They are a plant's defense mechanism, it's immune system. doTERRA essential oils are steam distilled or cold pressed extraction. Powerful, safe benefits without side effects. 

Check out this close-up of essential oil sacs on a Peppermint leaf! Essential oils are 50-70 times more powerful than dried herbs. One drop of Peppermint essential oil is as effective as 28 cups of Peppermint tea.

essential oils kill viruses and bacteria

Viruses live inside of a cell. Antibiotics cannot penetrate a cell membrane. Essential oils CAN penetrate cells to kill bacterial and viruses. They can also kill airborne pathogens, microbes and so much more.
