Lesson 5: How To Use Your Essential Oils

When To Use Essential Oils Vs. When To Go To The Doctor

If you’ve hung around me for any length of time, you’ll know that I am not a fan of the modern approach to medicine which can be summed up by “a pill for every ill.” However, I’m also not a fan of just replacing that thinking with “an oil for every ill.”

Don’t get me wrong, it is true that, when you’re looking for support in an area of your health, we really do “have an oil for that”.  However, the doTERRA health pyramid (pictured below) is really how we should be looking at dealing with the health issues in our lives. My favorite approach to long-term health is keeping a holistic state of mind and listening to your intuition on when to see a doctor, when to use an essential oil, when to do a cleanse.



Lifelong Vitality Pack – A Lifestyle

I love essential oils and I would never want to be without them but the product that probably has changed our health the most is the Lifelong Vitality Pack (LLV).  We got our energy back, our vitality back, our mobility back, our mental acuity back…we got our lives back! But, don’t take it from me, listen to Dr. Axe talk about the LLV here.  If you’re not currently taking the LLV, what are you waiting for? This is the biggest way to create a lifestyle change to reduce toxic load, manage stress, give you energy to exercise and confidence to eat right! It comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose! A whole new vibrant, energetic you is waiting on the other side!

Using Essential Oils Topically

People can order essential oils online and get it shipped right to their door practically overnight. Ahhh-mazing! Another reason to love life is carrier oils.

In fact, you probably already have some that you don’t know about including pure olive oil, coconut oil, almond oil, and avocado oil just to name a few. Carrier oils need to be part of your natural arsenal if you’re committing to living a holistic lifestyle and they are very, VERY, worth it!

Use a carrier oil when:

  • You want to use a little essential oil and apply it to a large area
  • You want the carrier oils to help with absorption by keeping the essential oils on the skin longer
  • You want to avoid a rash from concentrated oil (especially hot oils and especially if you have sensitive skin)
  • You want to use the essential oils on a small person (baby) or animal.

Recent research suggests diluting essential oils for topical applications not only does not reduce effectiveness, but may actually have certain advantages. Click here to see more and evening primrose) but if you’re looking to dabble without breaking the bank, I recommend starting with fractionated coconut oil as the uses are plentiful.



Diffusing Essential Oils

People often wonder how I stay so uplifted all the time and I decided that everyone should know my secret!

Essential oils are great, but……they are even better with a diffuser!

I have a diffuser everywhere I spend a lot of time and they are my default gifts when I know someone needs a boost. You can get a decent one for under $50 and I can point you in the direction of a few of my favorites if you’re interested.

The high quality Petal diffuser is $47USD and is nice and quiet. It has a light (which you can turn off if you like) and runs for either 1, 2 or 4 hours. (It also stays very clean!)  My personal favorite diffuser is the Lumo – it is super quiet, has multiple colour options for the light, can run for up to 10 hours and covers a really big area!

This PDF helps you compare our ultrasonic diffusers. We also have an amazing nebulizer called the Aroma Ace which can literally run off and on for 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. I love it!

Here are some diffuser recipes to help you feel much better on a daily basis!
