Best Essential Oils for Beginners

and how to use them in your everyday life

A common question I hear a lot is, "what oils are the best for a beginner?" And I always recommend this terrific trio...Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint. They can be used individually, in pairs or even all three together. They're safe and easy to use and there is something that can benefit everyone. Let me break down each oil and show you the many, many ways these oils can benefit your health and wellness.

But first! What are the ways you can use doTERRA Essential Oils?

AROMATIC - breathe in or use a diffuser

TOPICAL - apply to bottoms of feet or affected areas to target specific needs

INTERNAL - drop in water, under tongue, or into a veggie capsule and swallow

With Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint, you can use all three oils all three ways!



- cleanses and purifies the air and surfaces

- naturally cleanses the body and aids in digestion

- supports healthy respiratory function

- promotes a positive mood and cognitive ability

I love to use lemon in my diffuser as a mood booster when everyone is getting the afternoon crankies. Placing a drop or two in my water tastes sooo good and is a great way to get some extra antioxidants while gently cleansing and detoxing my body. And lately I've been putting a few drops in a spray bottle with water and then cleaning all of the door handles, light switches and other surfaces that everyone touches all the time. It's a great way to clean without chemicals or mystery ingredients. Here's a quick little video to explain even more benefits and uses of doTERRA's Lemon Oil.



- used for its calming and relaxing qualities

- soothes occasional skin irritations

- helps skin recover quickly

- eases muscle tension

Lavender was the first oil I was introduced to and I use it almost everyday. My son was having a hard time with sleeping at night because he was teething, so I tried a little Lavender oil on his jawline and on the bottoms of his feet and he (and I) finally got the rest we needed. I love to use Lavender in everyone's diffusers at night and I like to mix a few drops with fractionated coconut oil and apply it to my face to keep my skin hydrated and smooth. Here's a quick video on the many benefits of Lavender Oil.



- promotes healthy respiratory function

- energizing and cooling aroma

- used in toothpaste and chewing gum for oral health

- alleviates occasional stomach upset

Peppermint oil is in my diffuser every morning. It's a great oil to help me feel energized and helps me to wake up without having to drink caffeine. It is our go to oil whenever anyone has a stuffy nose (helps to open up the sinuses), has some stomach upset (rub on belly or inhale in cupped hands), or has any head tension (a drop rubbed into each temple and on the back of the neck really helps to alleviate the tension). Here's a quick video explaining a little more out Peppermint Oil.

One more tip! When you combine these three oils together they act like a natural antihistamine. Put two drops of each oil in a shot glass and drink it or put those drops into a veggie capsule and swallow it like a pill and it will work wonders without any negative side effects!
