Week 1 is the perfect time to experiment with your oils and equip yourself with any additional things you’ll need for your high vibe life.

There are a few basic DIY supplies many people invest in to get the most out of their oils.

Here’s what you’ll need and where to get it.


Roller bottles

Make up pre-diluted versions of your oils, ready to roll on, stash in your handbag or making roll on perfume replacements

Carrier Oil

doTERRA make a fabulous carrier oil called Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO). You’ll use this to dilute your essential oils to reduce risk of skin irritation, to top up your roller bottles, for cleansing and moisturising your skin and in some self care recipes.

Some great alternatives to FCO are simple olive oil, jojoba oil, sesame oil, almond oil, avocado oil, pumpkin seed oil, apricot kernel oil or macadamia oil.

:: Fill your sink and soak (20 mins) any unwashed fruit or veggies for the day ahead with 5 drops of lemon oil to remove waxes and surface contaminants.

:: Add 1 drop of Peppermint or DigestZen to your water bottle for the day to aid healthy digestion and freshen your breath (adults only).

:: Dilute 1 drop On Guard in 1 tbsp carrier oil and massage into your little one’s feet before they head out the door to daycare, creche or school to fortify their immune system.

:: Once per week soak the family’s toothbrushes in a glass of water with 10 drops Tea Tree for the day. Rinse out well before using at night.

 

Simple Oily Family Evening Routine

Here’s a few ideas for taking your oils everywhere with you:

:: Grab a doTERRA keychain from your personalised store. It comes with 8 sample vials you can fill with oil from your main bottles. You’ll never be stuck without your oils, as they will be right there on your keys!

:: Get some rollerbottles and make diluted versions of each oil and blend to carry with you in your bag or purse. doTERRA also make pre-diluted roller bottles that come in a kit called The Touch Kit which takes all the work out of this for you. Also available from your personalised store.

:: Toss a diluted lavender rollerbottle in your child’s school bag for any bites, cuts or grazes so they have something to reach for.
