Top 10 Best dōTERRA Essential Oils
There are literally dozens of essential oils available on the market today all of varying purity and quality and even more unique blends of oils available.
After using aromatic oils now for a few years and trying out several different brands, I have found doTERRA to be the best.
Here is a short list of my top 10 favourite dōTERRA oils and why.
This list isn’t in any particular order. I love them all equally, although a few, such as lavender, frankincense, and peppermint I use more frequently than the others.
Lavender is a universally applicable oil revered for its ability to balance the body and to be effective wherever it is needed. If ever in doubt, just use lavender. It is soothing, calming, and a wonderful healer in almost every situation. doTERRA’s Lavender Peace (aka ‘Serenity’) is an absolutely beautiful blend of Lavender, Marjoram, Roman Chamomile and Ylang Ylang balanced with the warmth of Sandalwood and Vanilla essential oils. It is simply divine and everyone I share it with absolutely loves it.
Prized for its gentle cleansing power, lemon essential oil is useful as a natural ‘non-toxic’ cleaning agent to use throughout the home and also wonderful to use internally to support the body’s own natural detoxification processes.
This fragrant oil used since ancient times if often referred to as the ‘King Of Oils’. Just like lavender, the chemical constituents in frankincense have wide applications from helping to soothe the emotions, to supporting the immune and nervous systems, and also the skin. If I could only ever use 1 oil, frankincense would be at the top of my list.
Did you know that bergamot oil is used in many perfumes and aftershaves? This beautiful citrus essential oil is unique in that it is both uplifting and calming at the same time. I diffuse this one regularly as it promotes a positive atmosphere in the home, and at work.
This unsung hero of an essential oil is wonderful in helping to support the healthy function of the cardiovascular system, muscles, bones, and also skin. It is a wonderfully calming and settling oil and one that I use regularly, especially when in stressful situations.
Juniper oil is a great friend to the digestive and nervous systems, helps to balance the emotions and is beneficial to the skin. I love this oil because it has been key in helping me to sleep more soundly at night. Plus, I absolutely love the aroma.
Just like helichrysum, doTERRA’s lemongrass helps to support a healthy immune system, muscles, and bones. Personally, I find it amazingly effective at deeply soothing and bringing much needed relief to sore, tired muscles at the end of a busy day. You can also use it in cooking, especially Thai dishes.
Soothing to the digestive system and uplifting and refreshing to the senses, peppermint essential oil should be a staple in your home. I use this oil daily both internally and also as part of an energising aromatic blend to diffuse in the air. Peppermint oil also goes deliciously well with chocolate and we regularly make after dinner mints at our house.
Effective at helping to clear blocked sinuses and also a gentle, yet powerful cleaning agent around the home, eucalyptus is an oil that I use every single day. Just a 4-5 drops in with your laundry helps clothes come out cleaner and also smelling wonderfully fresh and clean.
Last but not least is clove essential oil. A potent, yet gentle disinfectant this powerful smelling oil is also effective in battling mould and mildew. Clove essential oil is also great for supporting the immune system and warding off seasonal flu. As a family we like to rub this on our hands and breathe it in through our nose before traveling on an airplane as an all-natural protective measure. It really works too!
So there you have my top 10 best doTERRA essential oils. Of course, there are many more that I love and use regularly and I’m sure you have your own favourites as well.
Using and enjoying these amazing certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils is part of our daily life now that I can’t imagine life without them. They have certainly been a wonderful support for my clients, my family and our friends here in New Zealand and abroad.
