doTERRA Spearmint

Spearmint is frequently used in salads, drinks, and desserts, but did you know that it has been used for centuries for its digestive benefits*. dōTERRA Spearmint is great for promoting digestion and helps reduce occasional stomach upset*. If you are feeling unwell after eating your favorite foods, add 1-2 drops of Spearmint oil to water and enjoy.

I love diffusing Spearmint with Lime or Eucalyptus for a refreshing respiratory support.

Cooking with Ginger

Do you love to try new foods? dōTERRA Ginger is a main ingredient in many Asian dishes for its hot, fragrant flavor. It may be more familiar to you as it’s used more commonly in sweets such as gingerbread and ginger snaps.

When used as a kitchen spice, Ginger adds flavor to a variety of dishes and can also help support healthy digestion.* Apply ginger over your lower abdomen for a soothing massage to help reduce bloating, gas, and occasional indigestion.*

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.

Vetiver for Refreshing Rest

dōTERRA Vetiver has a unique, exotic aroma that’s sweet, woody, caramel, and smoky making it ideal for calming emotions. For a relaxing and stress free evening at home, use Vetiver as a massage oil for the body, diffuse with Lavender, doTERRA Serenity®, or doTERRA Balance® or rub on your feet before bedtime to promote a restful night’s sleep*. You can also add a few drops of Vetiver essential oil to a warm bath for a deeper relaxation.


When you add Vetiver to your wellness subscription box, be sure to also have Bergamot and Roman Chamomile on hand. 5 drops of each in a 10 ML. roller, topped with Fractionated Coconut Oil will be your favorite bedtime blend.

Which is better--turmeric powder or turmeric essential oil?

As a key botanical of the traditional Ayurvedic health practices of India, turmeric root and turmeric essential oil have a long history that has inspired modern uses of turmeric today. Steam distilled from the turmeric root, Turmeric essential oil has two unique chemical components, Turmerone and ar-Turmerone. Most commonly known for their nervous system* and emotional benefits, these components make Turmeric essential oil a staple in your daily health routine. Promoting feelings of positivity,* Turmeric is beneficial both internally and aromatically. Advantageous to the immune system, Turmeric may have soothing benefits that promote a positive immune response.* As well, Turmeric can help to promote clear, smooth, and radiant-looking skin.

Practical Tools for Teachers

A few weeks ago I was shopping with my daughter, and had a very silly observation in the toy aisle at target. (See photo) As a former teacher, I empathized with that poor Teacher Barbie. When that silly observation was shared thousands and thousands of times on Facebook, I started reading some comments. One particularly cynical platform shared the image, and I realized I needed to speak to the pain points underlying the jokes.

How to be a Confident Essential Oil User


If you’re just getting started using essential oils, here are a few ways you can grow in knowledge and confidence to take a natural, proactive approach with your health and wellness goals.

1) Understand the basics of using essential oils safely. If you haven’t been able to attend and introductory class, this online class will be helpful for you. Or visit this helpful page.

2) Find great resources for integrating oils into your everyday life. I like searching for the botanical name of the essential oil on Pubmed.gov to find peer-reviewed scholarly research. There are also books and resource manuals available. Be careful to select quality resources that cite scholarly research. Unfortunately, general aromatherapy guidelines don’t pertain to all brands of essential oils.

3) Only use tested, trusted essential oils. I only use doTERRA oils for this reason. When medical labs, hospitals, and researchers choose this brand of essential oil because of the purity and potency, you know it’s the real deal!

4) Read the product labels. If it has nutrition facts on the side, it can be used internally along those guidelines. Easy peasy.

5) Learn to listen to your body. This is one of those recommendations that would have sounded crazy to me before, but over the years, I have learned how to understand what oil to use for a particular situation by paying attention to what my body needs. As you gain experience, you will grow in this confidence. For example, the other day, I applied spearmint and eucalyptus to my feet in the morning to promote healthy respiratory function. Throughout the day, I noticed that my mental clarity was much better than normal. (Bye, mom brain!) Now, when I need a cognitive boost, I will diffuse or apply spearmint and eucalyptus.

6) Download doTERRA’s free Daily Drop app. You can receive bite sized pieces of education each day, and gradually grow in confidence for integrating oils into your everyday life.

7) Take advantage of continuing education opportunities through Essential Oils Daily Collective and doTERRA Corporate. I highly recommend the Empowered Life Series.
