I thought about giving tips this week for natural pain relief and boosting your immune system. Essential oils are very strong, that’s why you should be very careful with them. Make sure that the essential oils that you use are safe to use internally. 37 essential oils from doTerra can be used internally at the moment. Couple of drops go a long way!
You can mix essential oils to your smoothies or tea or add them to veggie capsules. Make sure you get your veggies capsules from a trusted place. Veggie capsules can be taken couple of times a day. doTerra recommends for an adult 12-24 drops of essential oils in 24 hours/ 2-4 drops at a time. You can always also apply the essential oils on to your skin diluted with carrier oil. I use the essential oils mostly like that.

Why doTerra’s essential oils?
I remember when my little Lassi was not around yet, I wasn’t really thinking about the safety of my home. When cats came along, I was thinking about the wires and toxic bottles that they could lick or poor on to themselves. When Lassi started putting everything into his mouth and was licking all the surfaces, I started thinking what was in my cleaners and were those chemicals healthy for me either. American study said that the air inside is five times more polluted than the air outside, because of chemicals. Here are four ways to improve the air at home:
- Get rid of the carpets. Carpets collect dust mites, that can cause asthma and eczemas.
- Ventilate air regularly. Dust mites enjoy the standing air of central heated home. They also like the air of damp houses.
- Get house plants. House plants love air and can take out toxins from it. Effective house plants for cleaning air are: Chlorophytum, chrysanthemum, coconut-tree and gerbera.
- Make your own cleaners. Even more natural cleaners can have artificial fragrances that are not good for you.
Diffusing essential oils

Are you ready for the world of essential oils?
Essential oils can improve the condition of your skin and help you in your skin problems. Skin is the largest organ in human body and absorbs essential oils very effectively. If your body doesn’t agree with a particular essential oil, you can probably see it first from your skin. In this case you should choose a different oil from another plant.
Oily skin and acne
When your sebaceous glands are over activated, your skin gets oily. When you add unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, hormonal problems and stress, your skin can get even worse. Skin problems can also be caused by puberty, pregnancy, menopause and menstruation. You can put a drop of T-tree, camomile or lavender oil straight on your pimples. You can also mix two drops of essential oils on your bath water or put two drops of lavender to your steamer to release stress. Roman camomile helps also to the inflammation of acne. Lemon is antiseptic. Basil, grapefruit and lemon grass help to clear the skin. You can dilute two drops of them and use regularly on your face or back.
Dry and mixed skin
The dryness of your skin maybe caused by your sebaceous glands not being active enough, but also outer factors like: coldness, wind and sun. Dry skin gets flaky easily and also ages quicker than oily skin. Mixed skin is very common and the most common skin type among Finns. Having mixed skin means that the skin on your nose, jaw and fore head gets oily, but cheeks maybe still be dry. Dry skin absorbs oils very quickly. It’s good idea to add two drops of essential oils to your face cream or carrier oil like coconut oil or jojoba oil. It helps also to put two drops to your bath water. Good essential oils to dry skin are: Rose, sandal wood (moisturising), lavender, jasmine and camomile. T-tree oil is good for flaky skin. Good essential oils for balancing mixed skin are: Geranium and ylang-ylang.
