Things are changing in the way people approach their health and wellness - mentally, physically, spiritually. We are more and more conscious of where our products come from and where our dollar ends up. We are increasingly aware of what we are putting on our skin, in our bodies, and the products we use everyday within our homes and how that affects our health and the environment.
With this increasing collective conscious desire to take a wholistic approach to our wellbeing, it's no wonder essential oils are returning to the forefront where they belong. Using certified pure, therapeutic grade essential oils that work synergistically with us humans is as empowering as it is supportive for our health, and integrating them into your lifestyle and every day can result in the biggest changes to your overall health + wellbeing.
What are essential oils?
Essential oils are naturally occurring, volatile, aromatic compounds that are extracted via cold press or steam distillation.
They are the protective and regenerative part of seeds, roots, bark, stems, flowers and other parts of a plant that allows it to fight threats such as viruses and bacteria. Think of them as the plants immune system. And when we use essential oils they work the same way and we benefit from those same properties. Plant medicine with it’s own innate wisdom that translates into our human body in the same way they would for the plant.
When the oils are extracted from the plants, they can be used as single oils or in essential oil blends to increase emotional and physical wellness. And when properly extracted , essential oils have the unique ability to benefit us in all area’s of life. They are diverse and utterly amazing in what they can do, from food enhancement and use in cooking, to beauty, to mood management and health care practices, they will help you fulfil yours and your loved ones needs.
How to use Essential Oils
The three ways you can use doTERRA essential oils are
Many of doTERRA’s oils can be used internally and are imported into Australia as Food and Cosmetic Grade.
Some ways to take the oils internally
Adding one drop to your water (Lemon, Lime, Grapefruit, Slim & Sassy are some faves)
Gargling (On Guard, Peppermint, Oregano work well here)
Cooking with your oils. Think homemade chocolate with some peppermint. Slow cooked curry with lemongrass. Pizza base sauce with oregano. And oh so much more!
This is the most common and effective method - simply inhaling them.
All you need to do is take the cap off and breathe in, or pop a drop in the palm of your hands + rub together and inhale deeply - and of course you can diffuse them in your home, office, workplace, car, wherever you go if you are like us!
Diffusion is great as it allows you to tap in to what you need, some oils will be uplifting and stimulating, others relaxing and grounding.
And it will also purify the air of unwanted smells and have the beneficial properties for your immune system.
Many of the doTERRA essential oils are safe to be applied to your skin.
SOME WAYS TO USE TOPICALLY
We love combining oils and using for aromatic dressing / self massage. Lavender + Wild Orange is a great combo and you can add some Frank in there too. So good!
And making our own face serums with fractionated coconut oil, a drop of Frank, Salubelle and Yarrow Pom for unmistakable radiance.
DigestZen diluted and rubbed onto you tummy when you experience any discomfort will being relief.
Balance on the soles of your feet in the morning to help you feel steady and grounded.
NOTE: Always follow dilutions recommendations and when using on children, babies or animals - dilute more. Be aware of ‘hot’ oils such as Oregano, Cinnamon, Cassia, OnGuard) - these can burn when applied topically. Keep away from your eyes and if you do get oil oil in your eyes or skin, rub some fractionated coconut oil around or over the area. We provide comprehensive info on this in our WomanKind Welcome Book. Practice radical self responsibility and err on the side of caution until you know what works for you personally.

The G.O and down low for how to get your oils and open your own wellness account
The most common and by far the best bang for your buck is with one of the enrolment kits. There are many to choose from so you will absolutely be able to find the right one for you. Your kit will be at wholesale pricing, waiving the membership fee and there are no obligations. (Just so you know, there are NEVER any obligations, ever!)
If you’re not feeling option 1 you can still open your own wholesale wellness account by paying the small joining + membership fee of $35 and you get 25% off for life when you order.
Once you have created your account, there are NO monthly order obligations. You are the captain of your own ship. You can buy as often you like. But it would be amiss of us not to share the incredible and valuable wellness subscription with you though - this is also known as the Loyalty Rewards Program.
Every month you go in to your own account and customise + tailor your monthly wellness box to your current and changing needs. And with your monthly subscription to your wellness you automatically are part of the Loyalty Rewards Program. Let’s talk a little about that shall we, right this way:
If you buy 50pv (pv = the product value assigned to each oil, this sounds way more confusing that it actually is, so stay with me here) which is roughly $50-60 worth of essential oils + other doTERRA products then doTERRA give you back a percentage in pv, product value for you to use as you like. So, that’s free product credit given to you each month for you to spend.
If you buy 125pv (product value remember, you’re totally a pro now!) in your monthly wellness box then you automatically get the free oil of the month PLUS the product credits. I know right?!! Just. So. Good.
