Create a basic kit

Each single essential oil has multiple uses enabling you to create a basic kit comprising about 10 oils. Consider including the following oils – clove, eucalyptus, geranium, lavender, lemon, lemongrass, peppermint, Roman chamomile, tea tree and thyme.

Using these oils singly or combining them in specific synergistic blends will enable you to boost your heath naturally and create a non-toxic, fragrant home.

The essential oils can be used as flavouring (if appropriate), medicinally, mixed with a base oil and applied to the skin, and used aromatically

The shelf life of a doTERRA essential oil when used for therapeutic purposes is about two years. However, their fragrant qualities last much longer.
