Intro to Essential Oils

After causally using EOs for over a decade I have fallen head over heels in love with the DoTERRA line of oils. The quality and effectiveness have made me a believer and I have been shocked at how quickly they have cleared up coughs, colds, infections and many other ailments for my family. Oh, and using them to clean and disinfect my home is an added bonus!


I have chosen the DoTERRA Introductory Kit with CD for many reasons


1- The price! You can’t beat $26.67 for 3 bottles of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint essential oils.

2-  The intro kit includes an audio CD and booklet to help inform and educate you on how to properly, safely and effectively use the oils.

3- The pack includes 3 of the most versatile oils and is a great starting point for beginners to jump into the world of essential oils and not feel overwhelmed, but is so well rounded even a pro would appreciate it!




 Lavender is easily one of the most popular oils (often touted as “the only oil you will ever need) and widely used for its calming and relaxing qualities. For topical, aromatic, or dietary use.

Some popular uses:

Put a drop of Lavender oil on a bee sting or insect bite to stop itching reduce swelling

To alleviate the symptoms of motion sickness, place a drop of Lavender oil on end of tongue, behind the ears or around the navel

Rub a drop of lavender oil on chapped or sunburned lips
Smooth on your pillow for sleep aid and relaxation


Lemon is cold-pressed from lemon rinds to preserve its delicate nature and potent properties. Lemon is known as a powerful aromatic, topical, and internal cleanser that can be used to complement many other oils. Diffusing lemon in a room can cleanse the air and uplift mood. It can also be used on surfaces throughout the home as a non-toxic cleaning booster. For aromatic, topical or dietary use.

Some popular uses:

Lemon essential oil takes out ALL odor when you forget and leave your load of laundry in the washer way too long!

You can add lemon oil to a spray bottle of water and attack what may be living in your range hood, on your tables, countertops and other surfaces

Adding a couple drops of lemon essential oil to warm water & honey can change that yucky sore throat feeling, slow a nasty cough, and douse a fever. Lemon oil fights bacteria, as well as viruses.


Peppermint is popular in countless forms, from toothpaste to chewing gum. As an essential oil, it is useful to ease breathing and as a digestive aid. For aromatic, topical, or dietary use.

Some popular uses:

Apply to the back of the neck and shoulders repeatedly to keep energy levels up during the day

Massage 2-3 drops (along with a carrier oil) onto chest or drop into a humidifier to help clear sinus and lung congestion

Inhaling peppermint oil is also said to help curb the appetite by triggering a sense of fullness

Because peppermint oil has analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties, it not only can relieve pain and inflammation but can also calm the spasms that cause muscle cramps
