The first time you look at essential oils, you probably don’t know which essential oil to look at first. After all, essential oil can be made from countless fragrant and aromatic plants and thus the ingredients of the plants can be used.
EFFECT OF ESSENTIAL OILS
When I started studying the effects of essential oils, I first looked at which oils are the most important and how I can use them in different ways. Because I know that you can easily lose track of the abundance of essential oils, I have summarized for you the most important essential oils and their mode of action. With these all-rounders of aromatherapy, you are optimally equipped for the beginning. In my opinion, these 10 oils should not be missing in any medicine cabinet.
Lemon oil is an absolute favourite to start with. Because: it has many positive properties and can be used in many different ways. Like all citrus oils, it is detoxifying and has a refreshing effect without being sour or bitter. My mornings always start with a large glass of water with a little lemon oil. Tastes good and feels good.
In addition to its great taste, it is also excellent as an air freshener – this is THE insider tip for more concentration in the office, as it enhances concentration and can help you eliminate mental fog. It is also effective as a complement to DIY cleaners or simply on its own, for example to remove glass labels or to remove ballpoint pen stains from the office. Pure magic!
It is always good to have a bottle of peppermint oil on hand. I love it for a touch of freshness at work – it’s great in the diffuser – or to relieve tension in the head and neck area. It also promotes healthy digestion. In my workshops, I like to tell you that one drop of peppermint oil has the power of over 20 cups of mint tea. Crazy, isn’t it? By the way, a high natural menthol content, as is the case with doTERRA peppermint oil, is a sign of, particularly high quality.
If I could only choose one essential oil from today’s list, it would be lavender oil. It has a soothing and relaxing effect and promotes restful sleep. In addition, it is also beneficial for the skin and helps to solve skin problems such as sunburns or minor injuries. I love it as part of my evening routine in the diffuser or with a little support oil as part of a foot massage. My body intuitively knows it’s time to stop. It also promotes mindfulness and helps you express your truth.
Incense is one of the most precious essential oils in the medicine cabinet. It was already known as a sacred oil in ancient times and has a multitude of uses: it is incredibly good for the skin, supports cellular health and can help relieve scars. It promotes a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere and is perfect if you are looking for support with meditation. Incense oil helps to recognize and abandon false truths. It creates new perspectives and is also called the oil of truth. It also works as an active ingredient booster, which means that if you mix it with incense, the whole is simply more than the sum of the parts. And: don’t worry, it smells much sweeter than incense in the church;)
TEA TREE OIL
Tea tree oil is great! It is best known for its anti-viral properties that are particularly cleansing. For me, first aid oil for herpes or occasional skin blemishes. Fun fact: Australian Aborigines chopped up tea tree leaves and applied them directly to the skin for a refreshing effect. Taken internally, it supports your immune system and energetically is also support if you want to stand out. And it’s also a hit with DIY cleaners: in-home sprays it helps to refresh and clean the air and works well in surf cleaners.
We probably all know oregano mainly from cooking as a dried Italian herb – personally, I also like to use it in combination with dried herbs, lemon and olive oil to pickle olives myself. But oregano can do much more: it has strong antibacterial properties and is part of the FLOOM immune booster blend, in which frankincense (incense), lemon (lemon), oregano, OnGuard and Melaleuca (tea tree oil) all support the immune system. I always use this mixture internally or as a roll-on when I feel a cold coming on.

DEEP BLUE – SOOTHING BLEND
Deep Blue – I like to call it the answer from dōTERR A Tiger Balm – is a blend of 8 essential oils: Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Ylang Ylang, Helichrysum, Blue Tansy and Blue Camomile. The mixture is ideal for painful muscles or joints, for example as part of a refreshing and calming massage. After exercise or a long day with oily legs, it helps to promote blood circulation. But it also helps to relieve inflammation and reduce muscle pain. Personally, I also like to use it when I twist my ankle to soften bruises and heal my ankle. Unfortunately, this happens to me from time to time.
The air is a mixture of tea tree oil, lemon, bay leaf, ravintsara, eucalyptus and peppermint. Whether it is applied in the diffuser or outdoors: air is a boon to the body. Because it helps you to breathe deeply and create space. Emotionally, it helps you open your heart. Personally, I also like it at the office in the diffuser; preferably mixed 1:1 with eucalyptus.
ONGUARD – PROTECTIVE MIXTURE
OnGuard is one of the most popular blends from dōTERR A. It contains wild orange, cinnamon, cloves, rosemary and eucalyptus. Taken internally, it supports the immune system, especially in difficult life situations. In the diffuser, it helps to purify the air. Personally, I love the smell and taste – and now I also use the toothpaste and hand sanitizing spray dōTERR A.
