The many ways you can use the doTERRA healthy start kit (aka the top ten oils!)
Did you just pick up a doTERRA healthy start kit or maybe you been eyeing it for a while? Either way, you need to know all the amazing ways you can use these ten essential oils and I’m here to tell you about it! Read on for the many ways you can incorporate the doTERRA healthy start kit into your life.
The following post may contain affiliate links of products I use and love. You can read my full disclosure here.
My favorite! Of course, I have to start with skincare because that’s where the essential oils have helped me the most. My favorite skin oils in the healthy start kit are Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon and Tea Tree.
I had severe melasma after the birth of my first son and it wasn’t until I started to clean up my act that I started seeing changes in my skin.
I make all of my skincare products and they usually always involve Frankincense and Lavender (this DIY anti-aging moisturizer is a fan favorite).
You can use Tea Tree oil to spot treat pimples and for anything itchy going on.
Lemon is my go-to for cleansing and a key ingredient in my DIY facial oil cleanser.
Mental health is huge and it really hit my family hard this past fall. My son started to get panic attacks and then got diagnosed with PANS (pediatric acute-onset neuropsychiatric syndrome).
Needless to say, we (mostly me) turned to our emotionally supportive essential oils and blends to get through these hard times. Lavender and Frankincense are my main go-tos for emotional support.
For an instant energy boost you can inhale a little Peppermint and if you need help focusing diffuser Peppermint + Frankincense.
We also use a blend called Balance that we love, but it doesn’t come in the healthy start kit. If you upgrade to the home essentials kit you will get Balance. Or you can add it on to your next order.
If you need respiratory support, doTERRA’s healthy start kit will be a lifesaver for you!
Peppermint and Breathe are incredible for respiratory support.
A drop of Breathe diluted with fractionated coconut oil rubbed all over your chest will open up the airways immediately (for adults and kids over 12).
Putting a drop of Peppermint or Breathe in the palms of your hands, rubbing your hands together and then inhaling is a quick way to promote respiratory health.
Diffusing Breathe + Frankincense is awesome at night for restful sleep.
If you’re feeling really stuffed up, make a sinus steamer and you will feel better in no time!
Building up our immune systems is so important. On Guard is doTERRA’s protective blend and it’s incredible for immune health.
Tea Tree and Oregano are also amazing immune boosters.
This is my favorite immune support roller recipe and it uses four oils in the healthy start kit!
All of the essential oils in doTERRA’s healthy start kit will benefit your physical wellbeing. You can apply Deep Blue for joint support (always diluted!) and you could use a combination of Peppermint, Frankincense, Lavender and Deep Blue for head tension.
Lavender helps to soothe a bug bite and Tea Tree takes the itch away. There is really an oil for everything!
Peppermint, Frankincense and Digestzen are our go-tos for digestive support.
A drop or two of Digestzen or Peppermint rubbed around the tummy is super soothing and works fast! I like to add a drop of Frankincense as well.
I make an aromatherapy inhaler for my son when he is having digestive issues and it really helps. I usually do a combination of Peppermint, Frankincense and Lavender. It’s great for reducing anxious feelings too!
All the DIYs
I saved the best for last! My very favorite thing to do with the essential oils is my DIY recipes, as you can probably tell from the other articles on the blog.
I love coming up with different recipes and tweaking old ones. It’s so much fun for me. My DIYs usually have a combination of citrus oils or skin oils (or both).
I make everything from deodorant to sunscreen and I love every minute of it.
If you’re not into DIYing doTERRA has tons of clean personal care and cleaning products to choose from.
