My Daily doTerra Essential Oil Routine is POWERFUL!

Experts say it takes two weeks to establish a new habit or routine—to really make it second nature. Establishing that routine with my doTerra essential oils and other products has made a HUGE difference in how I feel day to day.

Follow Mara, on our team, through a typical day and see if you agree just how good a “habit” can be!


After splashing my face with cold water (hello! wake up!), I wash it with Citrus Bliss Blend cleansing bar soap. Just that sweet citrus smell is enough to put a smile on my face.

Then, because I tend toward dry skin, I put either some olive oil or coconut oil on the palm of my hand and sprinkle 2-3 drops of Frankincense in it and gently rub this blend all over my face and neck. Frankincense is a known skin beautifier, used since ancient times, and I love putting the bottle right under my nose because it smells OUT OF THIS WORLD. If I have a bottle of Immortelle Anti-Aging Blend instead, which contains Frankincense; I roll it all over my face. (Some days I use Lavender which is also great for moisturizing the skin.)

Lately I’ve been oiling up my feet as well, since they get very dry this time of year. Plus, I spend time working out at the gym so I blend in a few drops of Melaleuca essential oil just in case. Melaleuca is powerful stuff and I always keep some around the house.

Okay, off to the kitchen for a big glass of water with 4-5 drops Lemon or Lime oil sprinkled in. This is a great way to start the day before eating anything. It will flush your system and detoxify your liver, kidney and bowels. My new favorite essential oil in the morning is Grapefruit. Wow, love that fresh, vibrant smell first thing in the morning.

(Whenever drinking these citrus oils be sure to drink with a stainless steel straw as they are strong oils and you want to protect your teeth.)

After brushing my teeth, I always gargle with some drops of OnGuard Protective Blend in a glass of water. All natural and you will never have to buy mouthwash again!


Recently, I started using doTerra's Life Long Vitality supplements of vitamins, minerals, essential omega-3s, and other potent nutrients on a daily basis (ingesting some with breakfast, some with lunch) and couldn’t believe the boost in energy and well-being after about a week on them. Try them and see for yourself!
Before starting on my computer work, I put Balance Grounding Blend blend on my wrists and throat to ground me and get me focused. It smells so earthy and wonderful that I leave it on my desk to smell throughout the day.

Peppermint works in much the same way. If I feel drowsy and want to be more alert, I smell it and dab it on my wrists or in the palm of my hand. Instant wake-up!

And if my lunch should disagree with me, I have my DigestZen Digestive Blend handy. I have a sensitive stomach so don’t go anywhere without this oil (Peppermint also works great). I rub several drops of oil right on my tummy. 


I brush my teeth with all-natural OnGuard Toothpaste, followed by a short gargle of  OnGuard oil sprinkled in water. 

Ah, bedtime. One of my favorite times of the day! Especially since this is when I use my Serenity Calming Blend. First I put it up to my nose to smell its heavenly scent, then rub it on the back of my neck and bottoms of my feet. Within minutes I’m out like a light. Middle of the night wake-ups? These used to be common for me but not so much anymore. If so, I just smell Serenity and off I go to dreamland. .

In sum, my essential oil “habit” has turned into a wonderful daily routine that confers a sense of health and well-being that I can’t live without!
