You Have Your Essential Oils, Now What?


I was so excited when my doTERRA order showed up at my house. At last! I couldn’t wait to open them and start using them. But I had ordered quite a few and quite frankly was overwhelmed with everything I had. How was I going to incorporate all of these oils and products into my life?

My advice? Start slow.  This is what my current typical day looks like:



The first product I use is On Guard toothpaste.  This is an all natural toothpaste and does not contain any fluoride.  It has a cinnamon flavor that I really like. dōTERRA’s fluoride-free toothpaste provides the protective benefits of therapeutic-grade On Guard essential oils while also reducing plaque, and whitening teeth with gentle polishing agents.


Designed to thoroughly cleanse the skin of impurities without stripping natural moisture, dōTERRA’s Clear Skin Foaming Face Wash is scientifically formulated to create a harmonious balance for beautifully clear skin. This gentle cleanser gives skin a spa-like treatment with light foaming action and a fresh scent. A powerful yet gentle combination of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® Essential oils, blended with other key ingredients, are a perfect solution for problem skin of all ages.

Now I have had problem skin my whole life. I love this product. It is light, non-greasy and really leaves my skin feeling clean and soft.


When I saw this in my Natural Solutions Kit, I thought there is no way in hell I’m going to put oil on my skin. I have enough problems with break-outs as it is without adding this to it! Well I am so glad I tried it.  Since I’ve been using this on my chin, my black-heads have been reduced by at least 80%.  I’m a believer!

With a unique blend of essential oils including rosewood, melaleuca, eucalyptus globulus, geranium and lemongrass, along with black cumin seed oil, dōTERRA Clear Skin topical blend creates an environment unfriendly to bacteria and microbes that cause unsightly and persistent reactions in the skin. Beneficial properties include controlling overactive sebaceous glands, soothing irritated skin and assisting in cell rejuvenation. It’s the answer to troubled skin.


Before I get dressed i put a couple drops of Balance into my hands and take a deep breath of it.  Then I rub it on the back of my neck and over my heart. Everyone experiences moments of disconnectedness or anxiety. The warm, woody aroma of Balance, dōTERRA’s grounding blend, creates a sense of calm and well-being. We perfectly blend spruce, rosewood, frankincense, and blue tansy to offer an enticing fragrance which promotes tranquility and a sense of balance. It’s a nice calming start to my day.


I finish my morning with these supplements.  I have never been a supplement or vitamin person but I decided to give these a try since they came with my kit.  I’m going to hold off on my review of these until I’ve been using them at least six weeks.



In the evening I diffuse Serenity in my bedroom. I also mix it with unscented lotion and apply to my chest and feet. Serenity is a blend of essential oils with known calming properties which create a sense of well-being and relaxation. Lavender, sweet marjoram, roman chamomile, ylang ylang, sandalwood and vanilla bean create a subtle aroma ideal for aromatic diffusion or topical application. Applied to the bottom of the feet at bedtime, dōTERRA’s Serenity is an excellent way to support restful sleep. Added to a warm bath, Serenity creates the perfect escape with its peaceful, renewing fragrance.

I like how Serenity relaxes me at the end of the day. I put it on right before I lay down in bed.

That is a look at all the products that I currently use during a typical day.  What oils and products do you love to use?
