How to use dōTERRA essential oils as 1-2-3 

There are three ways to use essential oils:

1. Through smell. We call this “aromatic” use of essential oils. This includes any application method that helps you experience the aroma of the oil. You can use essential oils aromatically by:

  • Diffusing in an essential oil diffuser

  • Applying a drop to your hands and inhaling

  • Wearing as a personal fragrance

2. On your skin. “Topical” application of essential oils allows the oil to absorb into the skin. Some ways to use essential oils on your skin are:

  • Massage

  • Apply to targeted areas and rub in

  • Add to lotions or moisturizers

3. Ingesting, or “internal” use of essential oils allows the oil to be transported throughout your body. Make sure the essential oil is safe for internal use first, and then try one of these methods: 

  • Add to a glass of water

  • Take in a veggie capsule

  • Put a drop under your tongue

Aromatic/Mood massage
Most oils can have a positive impact on your mood and emotions. During massage, these oils are some of your best options for this purpose.

  • AromaTouch®. Also known as the Massage Blend, AromaTouch is part of the AromaTouch® Technique created by Dr. David K. Hill, DC. Even outside of use in the AromaTouch Technique, the blend adds a comforting aromatic experience to any massage.

  • Bergamot. A massage oil that is both calming and uplifting, dilute it with Fractionated Coconut Oil for best results.

  • Citrus Bliss®. Combines the citrus oils Wild Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Bergamot, Tangerine, and Clementine for a sweet citrus aroma that will help inspire a positive mood.

  • Clary Sage. To support healthy mood, particularly during menstruation or menopause.

  • ClaryCalm® Monthly Blend for Women. Used for the same purpose as Clary Sage.

  • Geranium. Excellent for a couple’s massage.

  • Grapefruit. Uplifting and bright, use Grapefruit as a massage oil to brighten the day ahead.

  • Lavender. Safe for all ages, massage into the skin to promote calmness.

  • Myrrh. Recognized as a spiritual oil, Myrrh promotes creativity and energy.

  • doTERRA Serenity® Restful Blend. Helps to calm the mind and prepare for restful sleep.

  • Ylang Ylang. Reduces effects of daily stress and leaves a soothing floral aroma.

Soothing massage oils are perfect to use before or after a workout, or when you are feeling the after-effects of a long day of hard physical work. ​

  • Deep Blue® Soothing Blend. A blend that is both cooling and comforting, it also comes as Deep Blue® Rub for a lotion-like application.

  • Coriander. Apply to your skin directly after a workout.

  • Cypress. Soothing when applied on its own, use with a citrus oil for an invigorating massage.

  • Eucalyptus. Helps to create feelings of open airways.

  • Lemongrass. The perfect massage oil to use after an especially intense workout.

  • Marjoram. Used to target specific tired or stressed muscles.

  • PastTense® Tension Blend. Brings a cooling and soothing sensation similar to Deep Blue.

  • Vetiver. A soothing and aromatic massage oil for feet after a long day.

  • Wintergreen. Both soothing and warming, be sure to dilute.

Warming massage
Keep in mind that these massage oils are hot or warm oils that will always need dilution, either with Fractionated Coconut Oil or the doTERRA Hand & Body Lotion. To test for sensitivity, add small amount of diluted oil on a small patch of skin and monitor for up to 5 minutes for a reaction.

Stimulating/Energizing massage
Occasionally we all need a pick-me-up. A massage can also be an invigorating experience. For that energizing massage, put into practice either one of these massage oils, or use any citrus oil.

Massage oil combinations
If you want to use more than one oil during the massage, there are some good combinations you can use for specific purposes. You can put a few drops of oil into Fractionated Coconut Oil all at once, or layer them on the body one at a time for the best effect.
