The Top 10 Oils

Oregano

  • Oregano oil is one of the most versatile and powerful essential oils.
  • Oregano oil possesses a high concentration of both carvacol and thymol, two phenol chemicals with cleansing properties. This makes it one of the best cleaners in the essential oil world.
  • Due to its high phenol content caution must be taken when inhaling or diffusing, and Oregano must be diluted when applied to the skin, as it is a hot oil.
  • Put one drop in place of dried oregano in a pasta or pizza sauce.
  • Oregano oil benefits many homemade cleaners in a big way. For a quick and easy all-purpose cleaner, put 10 drops of Oregano essential oil into a 500ml spray bottle with water. Due to Oregano’s chemical makeup, it is a powerful cleansing and purifying agent. This simple spray is great for surfaces and countertops, even natural stone. 

Ice Blue

  • Perfect for a soothing massage after a long day of work.
  • When spending a day in front of the computer, use Ice Blue to sooth the tension in neck and shoulders.
  • Apply on soles of feet and knees before and after a work out.
  • Rub Ice Blue on your lower back after a day of heavy lifting at work or during a move.

Frankincense

  • Renowned as one of the most prized and precious essential oils, Frankincense has extraordinary benefits.
  • When inhaled or diffused, Frankincense promotes feelings of peace, relaxation, satisfaction, and overall spiritual and emotional wellness.
  • Apply topically to help reduce the appearance of skin imperfections.
  • Massage on the bottoms of feet to promote feelings of relaxation and to balance mood.

On Guard

  • On Guard can be used on surfaces throughout the home as a non-toxic cleaner.
  • When diffused, On Guard provides a pure and uplifting aroma.
  • We love to diffuse On Guard or use it topically when we hear Elliot’s cough resurfacing.
  • We use the doTERRA Touch Roller on the soles of our feet and down our spines to support our immune systems.

Lavender

  • Lavender promotes calm, relaxed feelings and is great to use to support a peaceful sleep.
  • Applied topically, Lavender is frequently used to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections. It is always handy to have on hand to soothe skin.
  • Use to ease itches, scapes, bites and stings.
  • A hugely versatile oil, that can be used topically, aromatically or as a food additive.

DigestZen

  • Rub on the stomach before flying or taking a road trip for a calming aroma.
  • Take DigestZen internally when traveling or trying new foods to soothe occasional stomach upset.

Tea Tree

  • Tea Tree is renowned for its cleansing qualities and for revitalising the appearance of skin.
  • You can add a few drops to a spray bottle with water for a natural cleaner around the home.
  • We’ve used it a lot over the last few years to battle the constant nit issue you get when living at a school camp.
  • Add a 1-2 drops to your cleanser because it can be used to cleanse and clarify the skin and nails and to support a healthy looking complexion.

Easy Air

  • Easy Air is great to add to the shower floor, your hands or the diffuser to feel clear and calm when breathing.
  • Ideal to be applied before a restful night’s sleep
  • Use so that you are equipped for seasonal threats.
  • It can also be applied topically to the chest, back, or bottom of feet, or diffused at nighttime to calm the senses before a restful nights sleep.
  • We have been using it to support a ‘quieter’ night.

Peppermint

  • Place one drop in palm of hand with one drop Wild Orange and one drop Frankincense and inhale for a midday pick-me-up.
  • Add two to three drops to your favourite smoothie recipe for a refreshing twist. We like to add it to our Bliss Balls and Chocolate Mousse.
  • Put some Peppermint under your nose prior to exercise.
  • Remember, less is more! 1 drop of Peppermint has the potency of about 28 cups of Peppermint tea.

Lemon

  • The best glass cleaner I have ever used is Lemon (about 10 drops), and 50/50 water and vinegar in a glass spray bottle.
  • Lemon oil also makes a great furniture polish; simply add a few drops to olive oil to clean, protect, and shine wood finishes.
  • Take internally or rub on the bridge of your nose to assist with seasonal respiratory discomfort.
