Essential Oil Wellness

Essential oils have been used for centuries because of their various therapeutic properties. They can be a fantastic addition to your wellness routine. When my children were young, I discovered doTERRA and have been using their products ever since in various ways to promote self-care and wellbeing.


If you're interested in trying doTERRA, below are links to my favorite products. Read below to learn more about the many benefits of essential oils. 


With 10 pure essential oils and blends, as well as the Pebble™ Diffuser, the Healthy Start Kit is ideal for anyone striving to live a healthy lifestyle.

 Here are some potential benefits of essential oils: 

  1. Stress Reduction: Many essential oils have relaxing properties and diffusing them can promote stress reduction and a calming atmosphere. My go-to is a mix of lavender & peppermint.

  2. Mood Enhancement: Essential oils can have a positive impact on mood and emotional well-being. Scents like citrus oils (e.g., lemon, orange) are known for their uplifting properties and may help improve mood and energy levels.

  3. Improved Sleep: Certain essential oils, such as lavender and chamomile, are known for their calming effects and may promote better sleep when used in aromatherapy or applied topically before bedtime.

  4. Pain Relief: Certain essential oils, like peppermint and eucalyptus oil, have analgesic properties and can help alleviate pain when applied topically or inhaled.
  5. Antimicrobial Properties: Many essential oils have antimicrobial properties, which means they can help kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Some oils, such as tea tree oil and lavender oil, are known for their antibacterial and antifungal properties.

  6. Skin Care: Essential oils are often used in skincare products for their ability to hydrate, soothe, and rejuvenate the skin. Oils like lavender, chamomile, and rosehip are popular for their skincare benefits.

  7. Respiratory Support: Inhalation of certain essential oils, such as eucalyptus and tea tree oil, can help clear nasal congestion and relieve respiratory symptoms associated with conditions like colds and allergies.

  8. Digestive Support: Some essential oils, like peppermint and ginger oil, may help alleviate digestive discomfort, reduce bloating, and improve digestion when ingested or applied topically to the abdomen.

  9. Natural Insect Repellent: Certain essential oils, such as citronella and lemongrass oil, are effective natural insect repellents and can help keep bugs at bay when used in sprays or diffusers.


While essential oils offer many potential benefits, it's important to use them safely and appropriately, as they are highly concentrated substances. Always dilute essential oils properly with a carrier oil (such as fractured coconut oil) before applying them to the skin, and consult with a healthcare professional, particularly if you have any underlying health conditions or are pregnant or nursing.
