Experiencing low energy can really hinder us from completing the most basic of tasks. It can impact our mood and our ability to handle difficult situations, and overall, just make us not feel well. Today we are going to discuss ways to increase energy naturally with doTERRA.
First, we will discuss a roller bottle blend you can create for everyday use, then we will talk about oils you can diffuse to get your energy up, next I will go over supplements from doTERRA that can be taken to improve energy levels, and last, I will share some lifestyle changes that can be made to help increase energy.
I have included a printable Energy Protocol, that serves as a cheat sheet for what will be discussed today, and it is also a way for you to track your progress. I recommend allowing 1-3 weeks of committed practice to see results. You can see a photo of the Energy Protocol below and under that is a button to download the PDF, so you can print it for use at home.
Energy Daily Roller Bottle Recipe
- Lemon – 10 drops
- Rosemary – 10 drops
- Basil – 10 drops
- Wild Orange – 10 drops
- Frankincense – 10 drops
Add oils to a 10mL roller bottle and then top with fractionated coconut oil. Massage into kidneys, adrenals, and neck 2-3x a day.
This combination of oils is going to support healthy adrenal function and homeostasis within the body.
Lemon oil, like most citrus oils, is a mood elevator. It works to increase serotonin levels in the brain just from inhaling the aroma. It also can be cleansing to the body, so when taken internally it can help detox the body and get things moving.
Rosemary is the oil of transition. Think about all the transitions we have in life especially in the recent years, we've had more transitions as a society than we have in a very long time, so Rosemary is supportive of those transitions and helps with balance hormones within or body.
When I think of basil I always think of adrenal health. If you only had one oil from this roller bottle recipe to put on top of your adrenal glands, choose basil oil; that'll help support healthy adrenal function.
Wild Orange is a citrus oil and works much the same way as Lemon oil.
“When in doubt use Frankincense,” this is a common phrase used throughout the essential oil community. It promotes homeostasis and balance in the body, it decreases unhealthy inflammatory levels, and is grounding.
Once you have applied your energy roller blend to your kidneys, adrenals, and neck you will want to get some oils diffusing throughout your home or office. The below combinations are recommended for energy support.
Wild Orange and Peppermint
Wild Orange and Peppermint together is an incredible mood booster and pick me up.
Rosemary and Peppermint
Rosemary can be used to reduce nervous tension and occasional fatigue, while also increasing focus.
Citrus Bliss has an uplifting aroma and creates a positive and invigorating aroma when diffused.

Start with Lifelong Vitality
, this is where I recommend most people start when experiencing low energy. Having low energy is typically a symptom of something else going on, taking some high-quality vitamins and supplements can really support the body and fill in gaps of nutritional deficiencies. I have several articles where I discuss the benefits of taking Lifelong Vitality, if you are wanting to know more about it, I recommend reading, Everything You Need to Know About doTERRA's Lifelong Vitality.
Mito2Max is designed to help with energy, but I find that it is very effective for people who have adrenal fatigue. It will support your adrenals in a healthy way, without caffeine or harsh stimulants. It can increase stamina and help you body use oxygen more efficiently.
You can also use it before an event if you feel like you've got your adrenaline going and you need to calm down a little bit. It's really an interesting product where it's both for energy and adrenal support.
I take this every day and then if I feel like I need a midday pick me up around two or three, sometimes I will put a drop of wild orange oil on my hands and breathe it in, and maybe even an extra Mito2Max.

Lifestyle changes such as, reducing sugar intake and exercise can significantly improve energy levels. I know that sugar and caffeine can be appealing when experiencing low energy, but the truth is that while those things can help temporarily, they normally result in a sugar or caffeine crash that can make fatigue worse.
Slim and Sassy
Slim and Sassy Essential Oil is a proprietary blend from doTERRA. It is designed to boost metabolism and manage cravings when ingested. Combined with exercise and healthy eating, Slim and Sassy can be used as part of a weight management plan.

Exercise might be the last thing you want to do when you are feeling fatigued but moving your body can improve your overall energy. Exercises such as walking can improve your cardiovascular health which in turn improves your body’s ability to circulate oxygen and this circulation of oxygen improves your body’s function and allows it to use energy more efficiently.
If you are really struggling to get out the door, try using Motivate Essential Oil from doTERRA. If discomfort is what is keeping you from moving your body, try using Deep Blue Essential Oil or the new Deep Blue Rub to ease occasional tension and discomfort.
Sleep is another essential part of increasing energy naturally. Of course, you are going to feel fatigued and tired if you are not getting enough sleep.

Serenity Essential Oil
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.
doTERRA also makes a capsule form of the Serenity Essential oil that makes taking Serenity internally more convenient and can also be used in combination with diffusing Serenity oil in the bedroom before bed.
