Diffusers are the best way to use your oils aromatically and get all the benefits! Diffusers are devices that help disperse the oils into the air. All you do is add a 1 cup of water + 5-10 drops of any essential oil. It will diffuse into the air for 4 hours, then automatically turn off. I use my diffuser for energizing throughout the day (any citrus oil) or calming down at night (lavender or the serenity blend), and I’ll also just use it to purify the air (On Guard blend or Purify blend).
ONE DIFFUSER CAN MAKE A LARGE ROOM SMELL AMAZING, PURIFY THE AIR & CHANGE THE MOOD OF EVERYONE IN THE ROOM!
I love using my essential oils in all my recipes. The human body is well equipped to safely metabolize them and they are great flavoring agents and preservatives. Your also providing healthy benefits to your body! You can use your citrus oils in your water, juices, and smoothies for detox and cleansing. You can also use oils, like on guard for immune support in your favorite recipes. I love adding black pepper, oregano, thyme, marjoram, and rosemary to name a few in many of my soups and dinner dishes!

Or, you can put a drop of oil directly under your tongue or in a veggie capsule to support your body systems! Many of the doTERRA supplements have essential oils too!
When applying an oil topically you want to use a carrier oil. A carrier oil is simply an oil to help dilute oils. Bottles of essential oils are very concentrated (that’s why you only use 1-3 drops per use), so using a carrier oil can help when you’re applying an oil to a larger area of your skin, for some of the stronger oils (on guard blend, oregano, thyme, cinnamon), or when you’re applying to children & pets. You can use any oil you have on hand, like coconut, olive, or avocado, but a popular one is “fractionated coconut oil”. This is coconut oil that won’t harden in the winter, which is nice when you want to apply oils with it!
