Clementine Essential Oil

You participated in the Product of the Month promotion; you got a free Clementine. Now what the heck do you do with it? Great question! Let’s discuss.

WHAT IS CLEMENTINE?

Clementine is a special citrus oil because it’s a hybrid of mandarin orange and sweet orange. The oil derives from the rind of the fruit, citrus clementina, and is more tolerant of temperature variations than its siblings. Its aroma is similar to that of Wild Orange but with subtle Lemon notes. Like most citrus oils, Clementine has limonene and is renowned for its uplifting properties on the mood.

Clementine is a source of natural folate and may help brain function. This includes reducing feelings of stress and depression. Furthermore, folate content can protect unborn babies against neural tube defects. Also known as folic acid or vitamin B-9, folate helps synthesize DNA and aids in normal growth cells, especially in infants and children. A deficiency of folic acid in infants and toddlers is highly detrimental. However, Clementine can be used to normalize folic acid levels.

Being rich in folic acid, which is also an antioxidant, helps keep skin firm and healthy. Clementine oil contains anti-inflammatory properties that may also be helpful for skin care.

Citric acids like Clementine aids in the battle against acne-causing bacteria to keep skin clear of imperfections.

Lastly, Clementine has anti-mutagenic properties such as vitamin C and powerful bio-active molecules such as limonoids and quercetin. These compounds fight free radicals in our body, stabilize them and prevent them from causing oxidative damage to our cells. By fighting free radicals, these compounds can then eliminate toxins and reduce the burden from our vital organs.

HOW DO I USE IT?

You can add one-to-two drops of Clementine to your water in a stainless steel or glass cup. Also, you can apply Clementine directly depending on your desired use. However, for emotional health, I recommend diffusing three-to-four drops and applying over heart and on bottoms of feet.

CAUTIONS

Like all citrus oils, Clementine is photosensitive. Do not indulge in direct sunlight for twenty-four hours after applying.

Clementine is no longer available for this month. However, for those who participated in this month’s promotions, we’d love to hear you testimonies on Clementine!

Roman Chamomile Essential Oil

Did you know that Ancient Romans used Chamomile to gain courage during times of war? To think that today Chamomile is a popular choice of tea used by millions for its calming effects. Now enter Roman Chamomile—with all the benefits of the tea packed into a little amber bottle! Let’s discuss.

WHAT IS ROMAN CHAMOMILE?

Roman Chamomile stems from the Asteraceae plant family and often grows close to the ground. It reaches only up to a foot, has gray-colored leaves, and a sweet aroma that smells similar to apples. The plant has been nicknamed the “plant’s physician” because it has positive effects on the plants growing nearby. While the most common use of chamomile is in teas, Roman Chamomile can be used in cosmetics to soothe the skin, induce relaxation or sedation, and relieve abdominal discomfort.

However, its most prevalent property is its ability to promote restful sleep. Aromatherapy with Roman Chamomile decreases the plasma adrenocorticotropic hormone levels responsible for provoking stress. In a study performed by the Human Cognitive Neuroscience Unit at the University of Northumbria, they tested the capabilities of Roman chamomile’s aroma to influence mood and cognition in healthy volunteers. Marc C. Moss concluded, “Analysis revealed a significant effect of condition on overall quality of memory, long-term memory and accuracy of attention. Analysis of the pre to post-test changes in mood revealed significant changes in alertness and calmness.”

Furthermore, Roman Chamomile is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. These properties can promote healthy skin by calming redness and irritation, counteracting sun damage, speeding healing, and treating imperfections. Adding two-to-three drops of Roman Chamomile into your facial cleansers or direct to face is the best way to experience these benefits.

Lastly, and the most unexpected of features, Roman Chamomile can soothe digestive discomfort. Anodyne is an antispasmodic component found in Roman Chamomile and can be used to treat or relieve a multitude of gastrointestinal issues. These issues rang from dispelling gas and soothing the stomach to relaxing intestinal muscles and promoting normal food absorption.

HOW DO I USE IT?

For a good night’s sleep, try diffusing one-to-two drops, applying to the bottoms of your feet, and/or adding a few drops to your pillows. As mentioned before, to experience the benefits Roman Chamomile has to offer for your skin, try adding two-to-three drops into your facial cleansers or apply directly to the face. If you have an upset tummy or other digestive issues, rub Roman Chamomile over the belly, add one-to-two drops to a veggies capsule, or the same amount to your tea.

CAUTIONS

Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under doctor’s care, consult your physician before use. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and other sensitive areas.

Save 20% on a 5 mL Roman Chamomile throughout the entire month of October! Don’t miss this special offer! We’d love to hear your testimonies.

Copaiba Essential Oil

Did you know that Copaiba is one of the most anti-inflammatory substances on earth? Derived from the balsamic resin of the Copaifera trees in the Amazon rainforest, this essential oil has been used by the indigenous people of South America for centuries to treat many ailments. Not only is it a natural anti-inflammatory but contains antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-depressant properties. Talk about a versatile oil!

COOL! BUT WHAT CAN I USE IT FOR?

Based on the (twice) mentioned anti-inflammatory aspect of Copaiba, you can assume that it is a proficient advocate for pain. According to a study conducted in 2012 about the Copaiba-Resin oil, Walace Gomes-Leal and his associates discovered that the oil is neuroprotective and reduces neutrophil recruitment and microglia activation after a motor cortex excitotoxic injury; “The results suggest that COR treatment induces neuroprotection by modulating inflammatory response following an acute damage to the central nervous system.” Furthermore, the same study concluded whether used topically or aromatically, Copaiba retains the same neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory benefits.

As an astringent natural compound, Copaiba offers a multitude of benefits for the skin. Another study conducted in 2012 by TR Gomes indicated Copaiba’s effectiveness against acne vulgaris. The author concluded, “The surface affected with acne decreased when treated with placebo, but the linear model could explain only 26.8% of total variance in original data matrix. There was a highly significant decrease in the surface affected with acne in the areas treated with the 1.0% Copaiba Essential Oil preparation.” Copaiba’s chemical components help tighten the skin, reduce the appearance of imperfections, and strengthen the skin to better prevent against scarring.

Another major feature of Copaiba is its natural anti-depressant properties. In aromatherapy, Copaiba has often been used to lighten the spirit and improve mood. Many find the smell to be sweet and reminiscent of warm honey. The scent alone may help reduce feelings of anxiety and stress. However, it is important to mention that if Copaiba is not the scent for you (meaning whether you like the smell or not), the chemical constituents within the Copaiba Essential Oil will have the same emotional effects regardless. Furthermore, as a detoxification agent, Copaiba is known to release stifled emotions. You may feel upset depending on the emotions you’ve suppressed throughout your life. In fact, we like to jokingly say that the first time you use Copaiba, you may breakdown into some well-needed tears.

THAT’S A LOT TO TAKE IN. HOW DO I USE IT?

 You can use three-to-four drops of Copaiba in a veggie capsule or simply take a Copaiba soft-gel for pain or discomfort. For skin or emotional therapy, I recommend applying topically. Add several drops to your facial cleaners or essential oil roller-ball blends for optimal use. Apply one-to-three drops over your heart, lower stomach, forehead, crown of head, and/or nape of neck to experience the emotional benefits of Copaiba. You may also diffuse several drops for aromatherapy.

And guess what? DoTERRA is hosting a promotion for Copaiba for the month of October! If you place a 200 PV order, you get a 15 mL Copaiba AND Copaiba soft-gels for FREE! That’s not all. Your free list of items is completed with the NEW 5 mL Yellow Mandarin. Purchase now before it’s too late! We’d love to hear your testimonies.

Thyme Essential Oil

After a productive trip to Utah for the international DōTERRA convention, we’re back again to inform you of the latest healthcare trends and promotions! This week’s blog introduces another herb from the figurative DōTERRA garden known as Thyme. Thyme is often used as seasoning for an assortment of hearty (or not-so-hearty) meals, but its variety of health benefits prove that Thyme is more than a mere decoration for food. Let’s discuss!

WHAT IS THYME?

Thyme essential oil contains antispasmodic, antiseptic, antibacterial properties and more! Thyme’s medicinal features derive from the steam distillation of the fresh flower and leaves. One of the most well-known uses of the Thyme essential oil is its ability to increase circulation. An increased blood flow means increased healing and oxygenation to the extremities. Talk about using Thyme to save some time (pun totally intended)!

Furthermore, Thyme is THE poster child for boosting immune health. Camphene and alpha-pinene, two chemical constituents in Thyme, are antibacterial and antifungal which can strengthen the immune system both inside and outside the body. Thyme is also antioxidant which can reduce free radical damage—another contributor to poor immune health.

The final aspect I would recommend Thyme for is skin care. Topical application of diluted Thyme can soothe wounds and scars, prevent discomfort due to irritation or inflammation, moisturize the skin, and minimize the appearance of imperfections. The combination of antiseptic properties and antioxidants can keep your skin looking healthy and happy!

HOW DO I USE IT?

You can use Thyme directly on areas of discomfort with plenty of carrier oil to dilute its potency. I would also recommend the same application method for circulation. Rub a few drops onto your wrists, ankles, or any areas that may lack circulation and watch the magic happen! However, for an immune boost or other unspecified reason, add two-to-three drops in a veggies capsule and swallow. If you have the stomach, you can also add it to your water.

CAUTIONS

Thyme is a little hot. Therefore, it presents a possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of the reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under doctor’s care, consult your physician before use. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and other sensitive areas.

Save 10% on Thyme for the month of September! Full of antioxidants and powerful immune support, Thyme can buy you a little more time. Don’t miss it! We’d love to hear your testimonies.

Hair Care DIY with Rosemary Essential Oil

The most treasured feature on the human body is our hair. No, I don’t mean your pesky leg stubble or your increasing amount of armpit hair. I mean, the locks of colorful hues upon your head are the object of many swoons! Whether you buy organic shampoo and conditioner or the expensive hair products, we’re all guilty of fussing over our hair. However, if you live in areas with moody climate changes, you can become especially conceited over the health of your hair.

I’ve got some good news for you. Your hair health can be managed with a single drop of an essential oil. How’s that for cool? DoTERRA’s product for the month of September is Rosemary, a versatile oil that’ll keep your hair healthy and happy in all circumstances. Let’s take a look!

Rosemary is derived from an evergreen shrub and is most often used for cooking. Who knew an herb could be so great for your hair? This essential oil contains ursolic acid which helps to increase scalp circulation. That means more oxygen and nutrients will be sent to your hair follicles for healthy hair growth. Furthermore, it is an antioxidant that can destroy free radicals responsible for greying and thinning of hair. It’s antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic properties work to revitalize the hair and stimulate hair growth. You’ll find new hair and less shedding with Rosemary.

Not sure how to use it? Here are a few recipes:

DRY SHAMPOO

Use

  • For deep oil treatment before blow drying: apply 1-2 drops evenly to wet hair before blow drying.

THE KINDNESS CAMPAIGN

It’s kindness week for the DoTERRA community as we pledge to do fifteen acts of kindness over the course of fifteen days. Our goal is to change the world by performing 250,000 acts of kindness in total! Do you have what it takes to execute such a tremendous feat? Are you ready to show the world what an awesome and genuine person you are? If not, DoTERRA offers a quick and easy way to remedy your lack of motivation.

And, of course, it comes in a little brown bottle…

Neroli is derived from the flowers of the bitter orange tree; in fact, Wild Orange and Petitgrain are sourced from the same tree! Much research has been conducted regarding Neroli, and its ability to relax and uplift have been amongst the studied effects. Furthermore, this versatile essential oil is known as the oil of shared purpose and partnership. Neroli invites individuals to develop character traits of fidelity, empathy, patience, forgiveness, and resilience to ease relationship challenges. It also teaches that unity blossoms from adaptation, cooperation, tolerance, perseverance, and kindness.

Don’t have a disregard for kindness? Neroli is a great additive to your skin health. It can be used to soothe skin and reduce the appearance of blemishes.

If you feel bitter, frustrated, or are simply unmotivated to commit any acts of kindness, Neroli can renew your zest for society. You can use Neroli in DoTERRA’s most offered form (by roller ball) and apply it over your heart, lower stomach, throat, or behind the ears. Want to use if for skin? You can remove the roller and apply to your facial cleansers, or you can use the roller ball directly on desired areas.

Possible skin sensitivities may occur. Keep out of the reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under doctor’s care, consult your physician before use.

Let’s change the world one step at a time! If you would like to advocate for the kindness campaign, click here! We’d love to hear your testimonies.

Back-To-School Makeover

Attention, parents and grandparents! Uncles and aunts, and guardians of all ages! Kids are officially back in school! But don’t get too excited. Another year of school means another year of grueling tests, insubstantial lunches, and exposure to germs. Doesn’t sound too pleasant, right? If your child struggles to focus, doesn’t like to eat their lunch, or is prone to sickness, it may be time for a back-to-school makeover.

A makeover? Isn’t that, like, make-up and hair? Uh, no! A back-to-school makeover is a complete transformation of your child’s backpack that will focus on improving their physical and mental well-being. Let’s get started!

SUPPLEMENTS

The first step on the path to a great school year is to keep your child consistent with their vitamins. Supplements will improve their focus and promote resistance against bacteria. Two core products children should take are IQ-Mega and a2z Chewables.

  • IQ-Mega is flavored with Wild Orange and is an easy-to-swallow supplement that supports brain, cardiovascular, immune, and joint function. It is recommended to take one teaspoon daily.
  • a2z Chewable is a proprietary formula of A, B, C, and E vitamins as well as botanical extracts. These tablets are strawberry flavored and support healthy cell development and longevity when taken daily.

STAY FOCUSED

 For your child, it can be a struggle to stay focused, and their grades may falter as a result. Luckily, DoTERRA offers several oils to help your child concentrate! Apply these oils to the bottoms of feet and back of neck to help restore focus and increase the ability to stay on task. You can dilute with DoTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil to calm any skin sensitivity.

  • InTune, rightfully called the Focus Blend, is a proprietary blend of essential oils carefully selected for their ability to enhance and sustain a sense of focus. Apply to the bottoms of feet as InTune has a strong smell that your child may not like.
  • Peppermint’s spicy and fragrant scent can help wake the mind, sharpen your senses, and improve your memory. A natural version of caffeine, if you will. Apply to the back of your child’s neck to promote concentration.
  • Wild Orange works to energize and lift the mood. It is the best oil to diffuse while your child is working to help give them energy and a boost of concentration.
  • Massage Balance on your child’s feet, neck, shoulders, or back to ease anxiety and restore emotional balance.

LUNCH BOX MAKEOVER

Did you know that you can add essential oils to your cooking? This includes food in your child’s lunch box. Here are several recipes that your child may enjoy:

Wild Orange Peanut Butter Sandwich

Wild Orange adds a fun new flavor to the typical peanut butter sandwich. You only need peanut butter, honey, DoTERRA Wild Orange, and a choice of bread.

  • Mix two drops of DoTERRA Wild Orange into the peanut butter
  • Spread onto the bread
  • Drizzle some honey for added flavor
  • Pack into the lunch box

Tangerine Fruit Dip

You need:

  • 2 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese
  • 1 cup of vanilla yogurt
  • ½ of honey
  • 2 drops of DoTERRA Tangerine

Mix all the ingredients together and enjoy.

Natural Energy and Clear Thinking

Water Bottle with Lemon

  • Add a drop of Lemon to enhance the flavor of water
  • Ensure that the water bottle is not plastic; pour water into a stainless-steel thermos

CLEANSING HAND GEL

Germ X and other hand sanitizer brands are not healthy for your child. Here is an alternative recipe for a healthier version of hand sanitizer, made with essential oils! You need:

  • 5 tablespoons of aloe vera gel
  • 4 tablespoons of water
  • ¼ teaspoon vitamin E oil
  • 8-10 drops of On Guard
  • A small squeeze container or spray bottle

In a bowl, combine aloe vera gel and vitamin E oil. Add 8-10 drops of On Guard to the mixture. Add water and mix well. Add more or less water based on the desired consistency. Pour into small container for use.

That concludes our back-to-school makeover! We hope these tips have been helpful. We’d love to hear your testimonies

Cedarwood Essential Oil

Insomnia is the companion that won’t quit. In the hours of darkness huddled beneath the comfort of your own bed, your mind is blank, painfully aware of the time that slowly ticks by. Where there should be dreams is a heavy blackness only perturbed by the dawn light that seeps through your blinds. Sleep comes in bouts of fitful hours. You can score three on a good day, two on a bad. In those moments, your eyes flicker to the bottle of sleeping pills. They don’t work, you realize; you don’t want them, you don’t want chemicals. You want sleep.

Luckily, DoTERRA has got a solution for your sleeplessness! Cedarwood is the perfect essential oil to help you unwind at the end of the day! With its distinct woodsy aroma, Cedarwood promotes a release of serotonin which is converted into melatonin, an important hormone secreted by the pineal gland that is intimately involved with the sleep cycle. A study conducted in 2003 in the Biological Science Laboratories in Japan analyzed the sedative properties of Cedarwood on Wistar rats. They found that Cedarwood inhalation had remarkable sedative effects regardless of the animal species or the functional state of autonomic nerves.

If you are feeling tense, stressed, or experience sleep troubles, try inhaling Cedarwood from the bottle or add two-to-three drops in a diffuser. Furthermore, rub several drops behind your ears, on the back of your neck, and at the bottoms of your feet for added effectiveness.

You can also try these awesome recipes!

Stress Less: Diffuser Blend

Out Like A Light: Diffuser Blend

Citrus Dreams: Diffuser Blend

Save 10% off on a 15 mL Cedarwood for the month of August! Don’t miss this limited offer! We’d love to hear your testimonies.

Laurel Leaf Essential Oil

Check this out! Did you know that before golden, bronze, and silver medals, winners of the Olympic games received olive branches and a laurel wreath? I know what you’re thinking; we certainly got an upgrade! But it turns out that the Greeks used laurel leaves for more than a bad head decoration. In fact, laurel leaves provide many benefits to mental, emotional, and physical health. Let’s take a look!

Laurel Leaf’s refreshing minty smell is a hint at its benefits for respiratory health. The essential oil is known to be an expectorant that clears up excess phlegm and mucus within the respiratory tract. Additionally, Laurel Leaf is antibacterial, antiseptic, and antispasmodic. The Greeks considered the plant as a potent alternative for protecting them from diseases. They also used it to soothe involuntary contractions, spasms, and convulsions. Perfect for uterine discomfort during the menstrual cycle!

In addition to these physical benefits, Laurel Leaf is great for cleaning! Eucalyptol, a terpene that gives Laurel Leaf its fresh mint-like smell, has been used in traditional medicine for cough suppressants. However, it is also highly cleansing. It can be used to cleanse the skin and as a minty surface cleaner.

You can use Laurel Leaf by adding two-to-three drops in the diffuser for respiratory benefits or to uplift your mood. Apply directly with carrier oil two-to-three drops and gently massage to soothe painful, spasmodic areas. Furthermore, add several drops to facial cleansers or spray bottles to cleanse skin or surfaces.

Get 5 mL Laurel Leaf FREE when you place a 125 PV order before August 15th. Don’t miss this limited time offer! We’d love to hear your testimonies.

ESSENTIAL ōILS AND BEVERAGES

Did you know that seventy-five percent of Americans are chronically dehydrated? A mere one-to-two percent drop in our body’s water levels can induce dehydration, and thirst is often an initial response. However, thirst is not the only symptom of dehydration. Sticky mouth, low urine output, dark pee, dry skin, head tension, and muscle cramps can result of mild dehydration.

What causes dehydration? Excessive sweating, a fever, diarrhea, and vomiting can cause you to lose water more than usual. But it’s more often than not that we simply have a distaste for water or forget to drink it. So, how do we avoid dehydration and still have the heart to drink a healthy amount of water?

Essential oils may provide an incentive to convince you to drink your water. Not only do they make a bland beverage taste great, but they also have many health benefits! Let’s discuss.

DoTERRA offers a variety of essential oils to spice up your water intake! One of the top-selling oils, Lemon, is a great addition to your water. Lemon naturally cleanses the body, aids in digestion, and supports healthy respiratory function. Add a drop of Lemon to water for a refreshing boost of digestive, metabolic, and respiratory health function.

Furthermore, Tangerine is an oil that you MUST try in your water. A sister of Lemon, Tangerine supports healthy digestion and metabolism, cleanses and purifies, and promotes healthy immune function. Tangerine is a favorite among citrus oils for its happy aroma. Add one-to-two drops to your water for a happy taste and improve your mood.

Enough talk about citrus oils. Have you ever added Spearmint to your water? Spearmint has been used for centuries for its digestive benefits. You can add it to your water for occasional stomach upset. Moreover, Spearmint can be used to cool you down on a hot day with its abundance of menthol. Add one-to-two drops to your beverage if you don’t have ice! It’s important to mention that Spearmint is very different from Peppermint, making it a milder option for children or those sensitive to Peppermint.

DoTERRA is sponsoring a promotion today for ALL THREE of the oils mentioned above. Buy 15 mL Spearmint, get 15 mL Tangerine and 15 mL Lemon for free! It’s a limited time only! Don’t miss it! We’d love to hear your testimonies.
