Daily essential oils routine

This, in my opinion, is THE best way to get started with oils in your home.

Gosh… you know when you think of something and wonder WHY on earth did it take me so long to come up with this?

Well, this is one of those moments.

Needless to say, I help lots of people get started with or interested in jumping on the essential oils bandwagon. Why? Because we’re one heck of an empowered, health-inspiring bunch.

Unfortunately tho, getting started with essential oils can be extremely overwhelming. Where do I begin? What do I do with allllll of these oils? And, most important, how do I incorporate them into my daily life so I can actually enjoy all of the health benefits this powerful plant magic has to offer?

So, in an effort to remove the dust off any and all essential oils that may be collecting dust in a closet out there, I wanted to share ways to include essential oils as part of a daily routine using the doTERRA Home Essentials kit. The tips marked with an asterisk are ones I use regularly.
