Getting Started With Essential Oils
Getting started with natural solutions for your home is very easy. There are different oils to choose for different things so depending on what you are looking to accomplish, I can help you determine what oils to start with. Generally the top 10 essential oils for any home are lemon, peppermint, lavender, frankincense, melaleuca, oregano, doTERRA Breathe, Deep blue, Digestzen and Onguard. They cover most of the natural ways to support a healthy home and body.
There are so many essential oil companies that is hard to choose the right one and figure out what oils to get. I personally recommend doTERRA because of their strict quality control and testing as well as their proprietary essential oils blends that are easy to use. The doTERRA essential oils are therapeutic grade and tested with GC/MS testing which verifies the compounds in the oil.
There are many essential oil companies out there who advertise their oils to be 100% pure but they are not. 100% pure can mean that there is only 25% of essential oil and the rest is vegetable oils or some other additives so you want to be extremely careful with the oils you purchase. The highest quality essential oils you can purchase are therapeutic grade. All doTERRA essential oils are verified therapeutic grade meaning they can be used for all essential oil applications (diffusing, external and internal). Always check the essential oil bottle to verify it’s safety for internal usage before using it internally. Also if you are currently taking any medications, be sure to check with your doctor prior to ingesting essential oils. Please note that some essential oils are not safe to use internally and also some are not safe to use when pregnant. If you have any questions on safety of essential oils, please feel free to contact me. doTERRA essential oil bottles show which ones of the essential oils can be taken internally and which are not.
Items & Oils You Need To Get Started
- A bottle of carrier oil. My favorite carrier oils is fractionated coconut oil because it’s light weight and non-greasy. It also absorbs quickly. Why carrier oil? I always recommend using a carrier oil to minimize skin reactions and help with the essential oil application and absorption. Certain oils can be used “neat” on the skin, meaning no carrier oil is needed, but as a general rule, I recommend using a carrier oil. You typically only need about 1 teaspoon to blend oils in your hand. I also always recommend diluting when applying essential oils on children. Just add the oil on your hand, add the essential oil and apply on the area of concern or on the spine, back of the neck and bottoms of the feet.
- Essential oils: lavender, lemon, tea tree (melaluca), frankincense, peppermint, oregano, Breathe, Deep Blue, Digestzen and Onguard. Lavender essential oil is great for burns and cuts as well as for supporting relaxation and sleep. Lemon essential oil is great for uplifting the mood and for gentle detox by adding to water etc. Tea tree essential oil is great for various skin issues and environmental threats. Frankincense essential oil is great for supporting cellular function, healthy skin and feelings of relaxation. Frankincense is called the king of oils due to it’s anti-inflammatory properties. Peppermint supports a healthy respiratory function and digestive health. Deep Blue is great for occasional aches and for working out. Digestzen is a great for supporting healthy digestion and for reducing occasional indigestion, bloating and gas. doTERRA onguard is great for supporting a healthy immune system and healthy respiratory function.
- If you are using the oils without a carrier oil, apply them on the bottoms of your feet. doTERRA also sells both oils in convenient roller bottles already diluted ready to go. I like to keep these roller bottles on my desk all times and my husband and children know they can use them whenever they feel like they getting down with something. I love it that doTERRA offers an already created roller bottle blends specifically designed for kids. The doTERRA kid’s kit is convenient to have an hand and it comes with flash cards with usage tips. I like to make my own blends depending on what is needed but love to have the ready made essential oil blends that are propriety to doTERRA so that my family can use them whenever needed. doTERRA makes getting started with essential oils extremely easy and fun.
- Essential oil diffuser. I highly recommend getting an essential oil diffuser. You can use it to diffuse essential oils in the air. You usually only need about 3-5 drops in the diffuser per 100ml. My favorite essential oil diffusers are from doTERRA because the quality is unbeatable. I’ve tried other diffusers and they don’t compare. Essential oil diffusing is a great alternative to toxic candles. Choose an oil depending on what you would like to accomplish, for example Lavender essential oil or the doTERRA Serenity essential oil blend are amazing to diffuse at night time for relaxing and promoting sleep, lemon, peppermint, lemongrass, lime and wild orange are great options for diffusing for a fresh scent in the house that is uplifting at the same time.
Here are some of my favorite essential oil kits by doTERRA to get started you started with natural options for your home. These are essential oils that you can trust to be high quality, therapeutic grade essential oils to support your health naturally.
