How to Create a Simple Daily Wellness Routine with doTERRA

Today I'm going to teach you how simple it is to make a Wellness routine using your doTERRA Essential Oils. This is a great way to get started using your essential oils every day. Maybe you’ve purchased some essential oils and you know they smell amazing in the diffuser, but they can also support your overall wellness when you are using them properly. 
One of the things that I’ve discovered about our health is that it can be our greatest asset and it often goes unappreciated until it is gone. One of doTERRA’s missions is to reinvent healthcare and to really have something plant bases that can help support our body. 


One of the simplest things you can start with is drinking a big glass of water in the morning; you can amp this up by adding a drop or two of your favorite doTERRA Essential Oils (be sure to choose ones that are safe for internal use.) Any oils with supplemental facts on the back are safe to use internally. You could try a drop or two of Lemon, Grapefruit, Lime, Mandarin, or Slim and Sassy essential oils. 

Tip #1 Add Essential Oils to Your Water 

This will also help cleanse the mucous membranes and help them be more functional in the body, doTERRA has spent millions of dollars a year to further research on how essential oils can benefit our bodies, so when they recommend something for internal use, they have done the work to make sure it's not only safe but also effective. 

Make sure that when you add oils to your water or drinks you use a glass or stainless-steel drinking vessel. Essential Oils can break down plastic so it is best to not use plastic drinking vessels when you are planning to add essential oils to your drinks. 

AM Oils 

After you have hydrated and added some essential oils to your water, the next thing you are going to want to do is get some essential oils on your body. Some great places to add essential oils to are the bottoms of your feet, your pulse points, or behind your ears. Choose an essential oil that resonates with your mood for the morning. If you need to wake up quickly try using an oil like Peppermint. 

If you are feeling anxious about the day, try using an oil like Balance. Balance is another proprietary blend from doTERRA that is effective for grounding the body and promoting homeostasis within the body; it can also help oxygenate the blood. 

Click the link below to see a video clip of what Balance Essential Oil does to your blood. In this experiment they put one drop of Balance on someone’s foot who had stressed blood cells, you could see the blood cells all coagulated and clumped together, and then 30 seconds later after Balance Essential Oil was added to the foot you can see them moving freely as they should to help transport oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. 

So in the morning you are going to want to add a drop of Balance Essential Oil or any other oil of your choice in the morning to really get those oils soaking into your system. As we head into the fall and winter, maybe you will want to keep some OnGuard Essential Oil handy by the door and swipe some on yours and your kiddo's feet in the morning before leaving for school and work. OnGuard Essential Oil on the feet will help to support a healthy immune system. 

AM Routine 

Whether you work from home or go to an office every day, you are going to want to have a diffuser close by, so that you can diffuse oils throughout the day. I personally have a diffuser in every room of my house, and I keep them going all day. Don’t worry if you don’t have that many diffusers yet, you can work your way up to that, just start with one and put it in a space that you will spend most of your day. Sometimes my daughter helps me pick out which oils to diffuse in the morning. During the fall and winter, we usually diffuse OnGuard to help keep our immune systems optimized, this year I am looking forward to diffusing the new Abode Oil during the fall and winter months. Abode Essential Oil is one of doTERRA’s newest proprietary blends that was created for purifying the air and help with airborne pathogens.

Some other ideas for oils to diffuse in the morning would be Wild Orange and Peppermint; I love this combo. If you really want a refreshing boost, try diffusing Lemon, Lime, or a citrus essential oil; these oils can really help to elevate the mood and who doesn’t want to start there day with an upbeat mood.

You’ve got your body going with some essential oils in your water, you have some essential oils on your body, and your diffusing some oils, now it’s time to work out a supplement routine. 

Our food is no longer as nutritious as it used to be and our soils are depleted, so it's difficult to get all the nutrients that our body needs to help to function properly to keep our immune system healthy and to have our body work optimally.

I recently wrote a blog post and made a video on doTERRA’s Livelong Vitality. The Lifelong Vitality Supplements is doTERRA’s best-selling product. This supplement pack comes with 3 different supplements, a whole-food based multivitamin, a high-quality Omega-3 supplement, and a Cellular Vitality Complex. I can’t recommend incorporating this into your morning routine enough.

If you were to come to me right now and tell me you wanted to get started with a wellness routine, but wasn’t sure where to start, I would tell you to get the Lifelong Vitality Supplements, Terrazyme, and Lemon Essential Oil. The Lemon Essential Oil we’ve already talked about, add it to your water or diffuse it in the morning. Support a healthy immune system with the Lifelong Vitality Supplements, and then use Terrazyme as a digestive enzyme that will help our bodies break down the nutrients in our food for better absorption or building up the body. This simple routine is an easy way to get started without being overwhelmed and its really going to optimize your overall wellness. 

As you start to address specific needs for your body, you can start to fill up your vitamin box with other doTERRA supplements. For me I would much rather have a box full of vitamins than a box full of medicines I must take later. 

PB Assist is another supplement you may want to add to your routine. 


Afternoon Routine 

I recommend keeping oils in your purse, backpack, office, or even in your car if it’s not too hot or cold for you to use throughout the day. 
Adaptiv oil is doTERRA’s calming blend. I like to keep this oil on me to use in stressful situations throughout the day, such as sitting in traffic. It contains Wild Orange, Lavender, Copaiba, Spearmint, Magnolia, Rosemary, Neroli, and Sweetgum. This oil was designed to help decrease the stress response within the brain. Stress is what keeps many of us from falling asleep and staying asleep. Adaptiv is great to use during the day in high stress situations, but you can also diffuse it at night. You can apply this oil behind the ears or just put a few drops in your hands, rub them together, cup your hands over your nose and mouth and breathe in deeply. 

When in doubt, use Frankincense! 

Rose Oil is another one I like to keep on me. If you give me a hug, most of the time you will find that I smell like rose oil. For me it is just one of the most calming oils and I like to apply it throughout the day. As you use your essential oils more you will start to discover the essential oils that work best for you in specific situations, don’t be afraid to try different combinations. 
Wild Orange and Peppermint
I also love combining Wild Orange and Peppermint Oils to reset my mood and use as a mid-afternoon pick me up, it’s kind of a like a cup of coffee for me but without the caffeine. I will add one drop of each to my hand, rub them together, and breathe them in the same way as I mentioned above when using Adaptiv Oil. 
Deep Blue Oil 
If you sometimes experience discomfort throughout the day you will want to keep Deep Blue Oil on you. Deep Blue is doTERRA’s Soothing Blend. Deep Blue is great to use for all things discomfort. It doesn’t overload liver and doesn’t build up toxins in your system. Deep Blue Essential Oil is another proprietary blend of Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Ylang Ylang, Helichrysum, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile, and Osmanthus. Deep Blue products are the among doTERRA's top selling products. You can rub Deep Blue on to the back of your neck after a long day of sitting at your computer or looking at your phone. Deep Blue will soothe and cool those tense muscles in the neck and shoulders. doTERRA also has a Deep Blue Rub and a Deep Blue Stick. 
Deep Blue Rub is a cream that can be rubbed into the skin like lotion. This cream is infused with the Deep Blue Essential Oil. This is a great product to purchase and keep on hand for when you experience neck and shoulder tension. 

Deep Blue Stick is a new product that doTERRA just released during convention. Deep Blue in a new stick form, but this stick also contains Copaiba. With the addition of Copaiba oil this stick is a convenient and powerful way to combat aches, pains, and sore muscles on the go. Throw this stick in a backpack or a gym bag and have on the go relief. 

I am incredibly excited to announce that this stick has been approved as an Over the Counter (OTC) which means it is approved for use against aches, pains, arthritis, bruises, and sprains. 
I know that this powerful stick is going to get a lot of use in our house for aches, pains, strains, bruises, arthritis, and all those inconveniences. I sometimes experience soreness or tightness in my lower back, so I will be using it for that. 

PM Routine 

In the evening you are going to want to start diffusing oils to help you unwind from the day. The right essential oils can create a calming space that will help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep. One of doTERRA’s oils that is best for sleeping is called Serenity. 
Serenity is doTERRA’s restful blend, it was specifically designed to help you get a more restful night’s sleep. This oil is a proprietary blend of Lavender Flower. Cedarwood, Ho Wood Lead, Ylang Ylang Flower, Marjoram Leaf, Roman Chamomile Flower, Vetiver Root, Vanilla Bean Absolute, and Hawaiian Sandalwood. I like to use this oil by putting it directly on my body. Usually, I will add a little Serenity to the bottoms of my feet, which is a great place to apply any essential oil. 

Applying essential oils to the bottom of the feet helps them to soak into the pores and into the bloodstream; this is really relaxing to the body. I also really love applying Serenity around my ears. It is a must to have an essential oil diffuser in your bedroom. I love doTERRA’s Volo diffuser for the bedroom, it will run all night long, it is also very quiet and doesn’t have a light on it. Any essential oil diffuser will do though, so don’t think you have to have this exact diffuser. 
You can also make your own combinations for sleep Lavender, Roman Chamomile, and Cedar Wood might be a good combination to try for sleep. 

I really like using Magnolia Essential Oil on the bottom of my feet before bed to just calm my body.
