How Do I Use doTERRA Essential Oils?

How do I use Essential Oils?  I have had many requests asking specifically how I am using essential oils so I have decided to share that with you.  I shared with you how essential oils changed my life and I thought you may like to see the daily regimen that I am following.  I started out with 5 oils daily and now I am up to 10+ oils daily.  I can honestly tell you that as a result I feel better than I have in YEARS!  I mean even better than my 20’s 😉  I have more energy, I am sleeping better and I am headache and anxiety free.

I suffer with anxiety and these oils have made such a difference for me.  I have suffered with anxiety for almost 20 years and have never found anything to help me with it like the oils do.  I have not had an anxiety attack since I started using them on a daily basis.  For me the quality of my life has increased 10 fold and I am thrilled with the benefits.  In addition I suffer with headaches and migraines and the oils have changed me using OTC or prescription medication to help with the pain.

How Do I Use doTERRA Essential Oils?

Wake Up:  Take 2 drops of Frankincense and 5 drops of Slim and Sassy in a shot class with 1 TBSP of water.  I am using the Frankincense for anxiety/depression, headache prevention and cancer prevention.  I am using Slim and Sassy for appetite control and energy.

Breakfast:  2 drops of lemon/lime or wild orange oil in my green smoothie – takes the “bite” out of the greens and makes your green smoothie taste delicious!

1 drop of Ylang Ylang – as my perfume – it is both an anti-depressant and to reduce anxiety.

Lunch:  5 drops of Slim and Sassy in a shot glass of water with 1 TBSP of water.

Afternoon:  5 drops of Slim and Sassy in a shot glass of water with 1 TBSP of water and peppermint oil on my neck.  This is for headache prevention and really gives me an overall sense of alertness and energy.

Bedtime:  1 drop of lavender (also on my son every night) and 1 drop of whisper on my foot – helps me drift off to sleep and shut my mind down.  Whisper also gives me a general feeling of comfort and helps with anxiety and sleep.

Remedies That I Use When Necessary:

Allergy Remedy: 2 drops of lemon/peppermint/lavender oil (repeat 3 times per day or as necessary)

Congestion:  1 drop of breath on my foot

Migraine Remedy: 1 drop of Frankincense on the roof of my mouth, peppermint on temples and Ylang Ylang on my wrist (Ylang Ylang is optional).

Acne: Geranium or Melaleuca as a spot treatment

Sore Muscles/Body Aches and Pains: Deep Blue Oil and Rub – this is amazing!

Household Cleaning:  Melaleuca or Lemon Oil

Essential Oils are an investment however per drop they are a stockpile price!  There are 250 drops in each 15 ml bottle!  Also these oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade and safe for consumption.  NOT ALL ESSENTIAL OILS ARE.   They have saved me so much money in terms of eliminating OTC drugs and not only that I am eliminating toxins from my life.

      Yes they are and safe to use on children/babies with a carrier oil – or you can diffuse for them (the lavender is amazing for children). You can also visit for specific remedies and use.

    Can you suggest what would be best for black flies and mosquitos? My kids play a lot of sports and the bugs are terrible where we live. I don’t want to spray deet on the little ones (or big ones for that matter)

      Yes – TerraShield® – Outdoor Blend
