Less is More!

  • Dilute – Doterra essential oils are potent and powerful so start small and remember less is more.  When applying to the skin, dilute with a skin oil of your choice. This will minimize the risk of sensitivity.
  • Citrus oils are photosensitive – Never apply a citrus oil to the skin and then immediately go out into the sun! You must wait up to 12 hours before sun exposure.
  • Use essential oils as aromatherapy first – Use a diffuser, place a drop in a cotton ball or onto your pillow before bed, place a drop onto your palm, rub palms together, cup your hands and inhale the aroma. Dilute if you decide to apply directly on an isolated location such as an achy area.
  • If you decide to ingest – Less is More.  Consider why you are choosing to ingest.  If you can get the same (or sometimes better) results through inhalation or application, start there.  For more information on the benefits of ingestion copy and paste either link into your browser:
