Want to be the best, healthiest version of yourself?
The best way to do this is to take charge of your wellness and begin building healthy habits. As humans we are creatures of habits, and it is much easier to make healthy choices when we have a routine that we follow daily.
The Healthy Habits Kit is the kit I recommend to people when they come to me and tell me they are tired of feeling like crap and are ready to make some serious life changes. The Healthy Habits Kit is one of the fastest ways to start implementing wellness changes where they matter most. This kit is half essential oils, half supplements and comes equipped with products that are recommended for daily use to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I use these products in a daily basis to help repair my gut flora, elevate my mood, and to assist my hormones in staying balanced.I've been using doTERRA product since 2011 and these have been some of my go-to, must haves, since day one.
Let’s start by breaking down what exactly comes in the Healthy Habits Kit from doTERRA.

- doTERRA On Guard
- Deep Blue Rub
- DigestZen TerraZyme
- PB Assist
- Microplex VMz

This oil is known for its cleansing properties, as well as supporting a healthy immune and respiratory system when ingested. You can also add this to your desserts, water, and fruit smoothies. Tangerine is incredibly supportive to the liver and that is one of the reasons it is in the daily Healthy Habits Kits.
I add a citrus oil to my water daily. doTERRA has formulated citrus oils to be safe for internal use. Any doTERRA Essential Oil with supplemental facts on the back are safe for internal use.

You can also diffuse this throughout your house for a mood booster for the whole house. Other ways you can use this oil are by adding it to the flex points or abdomen, add to cake and cookies recipes, or add to water, smoothies, teas or lemonade for flavoring.
Frankincense Essential Oil which is appropriately nicknamed “the king of oils.” There is a saying that goes, “when in doubt, use Frankincense.” This amazing essential oil has been found to be very supportive to a healthy neurological and immune system. If you want to be completely flabbergasted, look up the research on Frankincense. There are so many health benefits associate with Frankincense. I use this oil by placing one drop under my tongue each morning. Fair warning, this oil does have an earthy taste and may be off putting.

This oil is great for diffusing daily all year long, but I really recommend using it daily in the fall and winter months when more people are prone to respiratory illnesses. On Guard will help to purify the air and rid it of airborne pathogens. I also recommend applying this oil topically. We apply this oil to our daughter’s feet each morning as she is on her way out the door for school.

However you decide to use this oil, try to get it on or in your body at least once a day during those fall and winter months.

Enzymes enable molecules to be changed from one form to another. They are particularly important in ensuring that food is digested and processed, that nutrients are absorbed efficiently, and essentially help our bodies maintain a steady energy production throughout the day.
Three Main Enzyme Groups
- Metabolic Enzymes
- Digestive Enzymes
- Food Enzymes
- Metabolic enzymes and digestive enzymes are produced within the body, while food enzymes come from consuming food
- Often found in raw fruits and vegetables that are grown in nutrient rich soil
- Coenzymes are destroyed when the food is cooked
Food Enzymes are an important part of the trio, but many of us, despite our best efforts, are not getting enough food enzymes. This can cause enzyme deficiency which results in the body not digesting food properly.
Around age 30 our bodies start to decrease in the natural production of these enzymes.
doTERRA makes a lovely whole food enzyme complex that can correct enzyme deficiency.
The below statement was taken directly from doTERRA’s TerraZyme product page.
“DigestZen TerraZyme Digestive Enzyme Complex is a proprietary blend of active whole-food enzymes and supporting cofactors that are often deficient in cooked, processed, and preservative-laden foods. The powerful combination of digestive enzymes found in DigestZen TerraZyme supports the body’s constant production of enzymes critical for healthy biochemical functions, including healthy digestion of food nutrients and cellular metabolism of nutrients to energy. DigestZen TerraZyme includes a variety of whole-food enzymes that help with the digestion of proteins, fats, complex carbohydrates, sugars, and fiber.”

PB Assist is a high-quality probiotic that you can take on a daily basis to help support your gut Biome. It used a patent technology that will allow these probiotics to digest in your lower GI instead of your stomach, which is where we really need probiotics. A lot of the foods we eat that contain probiotics break down in the stomach and the probiotics never make it to the lower GI.
There is also a children's version that tastes delicious, PB Assist Junior. My kid loves this as a treat and asks to take it every day. The children's version can be used for adults and children.

doTERRA is not only committed to supplying the highest quality essential oils, but they are also committed to making a positive difference in the lives of farmers, harvesters, and distillers; all of which contribute to doTERRA’s essential oil production. doTERRA sources their essential oils from over 45 difference countries, about half of those countries are developing countries. When doTERRA started sourcing from these countries they wanted to ensure that small farmers were treated ethically, so they started an initiative called Co-Impact Sourcing.
The following paragraph comes directly from doTERRA’s website.
“Co-Impact Sourcing creates shared value for all stakeholders in the supply chain by being at the source and intentionally implementing environmental stewardship and/or social impact initiatives. Co-Impact Sourcing seeks to develop long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas. doTERRA is committed to the ethical treatment of its suppliers by providing on-time payments at fair prices. Growers and harvesters are encouraged to form cooperative groups to share collective benefits and bargaining power while improving skills and capacity.
Additionally, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® helps support development projects in sourcing communities. Projects include schools, health clinics, improved infrastructure and clean water systems.”
What does this mean for you?
When you purchase a bottle of Frankincense you are supporting the building of schools in Somalia. When doTERRA first went into the country, they asked them what they needed; their mission is to empower these countries not just source ingredients ethically from them. They said they needed schools for their boys, but doTERRA would only agree to build schools if girls could attend too. So when you purchase Frankincense, you can feel good about supporting schools in Somalia for boys and girls.
doTERRA has also built medical clinics in these countries that are suffering from extreme poverty. There is always a story behind each bottle of essential oils you purchase from doTERRA.
