On these pages, we’ll continue to share regular blog updates about how I use these beautiful oils, tips and interesting information about all the different types of essential oils and blends available from doTERRA. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did writing them!

Lemon
Clean and crisp

Lemon essential oil is a superstar. Sharp, clean and refreshing when used aromatically it is also a healthy, no-tox option for home cleaning.

Peppermint
Minty fresh and invigorating for the senses

Peppermint essential oil is my all-time favourite that I can’t live without. Minty fresh and invigorating for the senses, peppermint essential oil is a great way to perk up emotionally and diluted as a massage oil for inflammation.

Lavender
Calming, soothing and versatile

Lavender is one of the essential oils I use often because it is versatile. I also like to use it to support my emotional health. After a long day on set, I’ll settle down in my room, add eight drops to lavender to my essential oil diffuser and switch it on. It’s like nature’s chill pill.

Wild Orange
Uplifting and full of zesty flavour

It’s no surprise that wild orange essential oil is one of the most popular in the world. A versatile oil, it can be used for cleaning and has an energising aroma, making it ideal for diffusion.

Frankincense
Woodsy and sweetly aromatic

Frankincense is one of those essential oils I like to reserve for special occasions. It is intensely relaxing and has a heavy, exotic aroma that helps the body and mind to really settle into the present moment.

Tea Tree
Refreshing and with countless benefits

I just can’t get enough of Australian tea tree oil, also known as Melaleuca oil. It’s a fantastic, versatile oil to have in the house as it possesses over 92 different compounds and there are almost endless ways it can be used.

Oregano
Herbaceous and versatile

Being a chef, it’s no surprise that oregano essential oil is up there on my list of favourites. We all know oregano from our favourite Italian meals, but did you also know that this essential oil can also be diffused or applied topically?

Vetiver
A distinctly earthy, grassy scent

Vetiver is not as well known as some of the other essential oils, but it’s an interesting one. A favourite in the perfume industry and used in many men’s colognes, vetiver has a distinctly earthy, grassy scent. Its rich, exotic aroma is why it has earned the names ‘Oil of Tranquility’ and ‘The Fragrance of the Soil’.

Ginger
Hot, spicy, woody and sweet

Hot, spicy, woody, and sweet, ginger is the world’s most widely cultivated spice. People have been enjoying its many health benefits for over 5,000 years. Of course, ginger is widely known for adding zing to many popular dishes, but it's a potent essential oil that is packed with powers that reach far beyond the culinary realm.

Lime
Zesty, refreshing and energising

The captivating, zesty scent of lime essential oil is stimulating and refreshing to the senses. It’s no coincidence that many of the drinks we serve on a summer holiday contain this uplifting ingredient! Lime essential oil is known for being energising and promoting feelings of emotional balance and wellbeing.
