While my blog is called Essential Oils Daily, I don’ t necessarily use the same oils each day. One exception—I take a drop or two of Copaiba under my tongue each day. I love the mild taste and the complex chemistry that provides so many potential beneficial outcomes.

Copaiba essential oil is derived from the resin of the copaiba tree which can grow upwards of more than 100 feet and can be found in tropical South America. Copaiba oil is widely used in cosmetic products including soaps, creams, lotions, and perfumes. Since the 16th century, copaiba essential oil has been utilized in traditional health practices by the natives of north and northeastern Brazil. Similar to Black Pepper essential oil, Copaiba can help soothe anxious feelings and it can be applied to the skin to promote a clear, smooth complexion. Taken internally, Copaiba essential oil supports the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and respiratory systems.* Although Copaiba does not contain psychoactive cannabinoids, the main component caryophyllene may be neuroprotective and have cardiovascular and immune benefits.* It’s also a powerful antioxidant that promotes immune health.*


  • Add 1 to 2 drops to water, juice, or tea to support the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and respiratory system.*

  • Provides antioxidant support when ingested.*

  • Take internally to help soothe and calm the nervous system.*

  • Apply topically combined with a carrier oil or a facial moisturizer to help keep skin clean and clear, and to help reduce the appearance of blemishes.

Cedarwood for Grounding

doTERRA Cedarwood2.png

I love blending wood oils with citrus oils in the diffuser. Wood oils and root oils are typically low notes in fragrance blending and are beneficial for promoting feelings of groundedness. Citrus oils are high notes that can flash off quickly. Blending those happy citrus oils with a wood oil like Cedarwood is beneficial for balancing moods.

Did you know that Cedarwood essential oil was considered by the Sumerians to stem from the Tree of Life? Diffuse Cedarwood with Cypress for a warm scent to promote feelings of confidence and self-esteem within the home.

Cedarwood oil also includes the main sesquiterpene constituents cedrene, and thujopsene, which help improve the appearance of skin. Add one to two drops to your toner to help with skin imperfections.

Cypress Essential Oil

Did you know Cypress essential oil is frequently used in spas and by massage therapists? Cypress promotes healthy circulation.

Mix Cypress and Grapefruit essential oil with dōTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil for an enjoyable massage. Cypress essential oil also contains monoterpenes, making it beneficial for oily skin conditions. Add one to two drops to the toner to help improve the appearance of oily skin.

Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon has many purposeful functions, especially when it comes to cleaning surfaces in your home. Add Lemon oil to a spray bottle of water to clean tables, countertops, and other surfaces.

A Pure Patchouli

Before I tried doTERRA, I was not a fan of the aroma of Patchouli. In fact, it took me several years to even order a bottle for our oil stash. Once I tried doTERRA’s Patchouli, blended with the right combination of other oils, I grew to love the aroma. The cosmetic benefits are astounding.

Apply it to dry areas to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes. When diluted, dōTERRA Patchouli acts as a natural deodorant.

The strong and unique scent makes a great base in floral blends. I also love incorporating it with citrus oils for depth.
