The First 10 Oils to bless our Home

I remember when I first discovered doTERRA, I wanted all of the products right away! I was very glad I was advised to go with the Home Essentials kit as it really did have everything I needed to get started on my journey with essential oils for natural healthcare. It literally became my new family medicine cabinet. Here’s a brief rundown of the oils it contains and some of the ways we have used them in our family:

LEMON Cleansing & Uplifting:
Drink in water to detox and cleanse the body.
Inhale from hands or diffuse for an instant mental alertness boost and mood uplift.

LAVENDER Relaxation & Skin:
Add to bath salts, apply to soles of feet and diffuse for ultimate relaxation and sleep vibes. Think kids bedtime win!
Apply to burns (sunburn or in the kitchen!), itchy or inflamed skin to soothe and relieve.

PEPPERMINT Uplifting & Cooling:
Diffuse in the car to help prevent travel sickness and help mental alertness.
Apply to help the body cool down after exercise, during menopause or to help bring temperature down (not to be used on babies under 1).

FRANKINCENSE Cell Renewal & Calm
Add a drop to facial moisturiser to help with skin cell renewal.
Take a drop under the tongue every day to help support healthy cell renewal and to help calm the central nervous system.

Use in home-made cleaning products like a multi-surface spray.

I loved them so much I started to share them with others and look – it turned into my business! The ‘Essential Living by Sharon’ community is now thriving. The purchase of the Home Essentials kit also gives membership so you can be part of it too. You can read all about it here.
