First of all - congratulations on giving yourself the gift of essential oils!
You may now be asking yourself...
‘I've got my oils... now what?’
Most companies have their own websites where you can search by specific oil or blend for some additional info on that oil (as do we, just search 'doterra wild orange' and you will see product specs), but it’s all of the additional extra Q’s you may have that I am here to help you with. This includes companion products, resources and literature and even a few free eBooks and guides to help you out.
My worst nightmare is your oils are sitting on the shelf gathering dust, which means you aren’t experiencing their incredible value.
So here are my top oily resources and companion products that will help you IMMENSELY.
1. 150 Uses for your home essentials kit
Absolutely start here if you have just picked yourself up the doTERRA Home Essentials Kit (or the Essentials Collection).
This resource list provides you with everything you need to know to get started using the ten oils every home should have regardless of their wants or needs. The ‘Home Essentials Kit (Or the Essentials Kit), has 6 single oils and 4 of the most popular blends we create as well as a diffuser.
This is a simple, condensed version if you prefer.
2. BOOKS & APPS
Modern Essentials App: I can’t speak highly enough of this app. Anybody that invests in purchasing pure therapeutic grade essential oils needs to have this app in their pocket. It’s $11, which isn’t cheap by ‘App’ standards, however you will use it every day and it will never cost you another cent.
If you’re unsure of what oil to use to support an ailment, body system or to benefit your body or emotion, you need only to search within the app ailment, body system, or emotion and see the oils that will be beneficial for that.
For example: if you, a friend or child suffers from eczema, you can search 'eczema' and it will come up with a variety of different oils for you to choose from. It also helps in dilution quantities and application methods which is super handy!
I’ve used it to create blends for anxiety, acne, arthritis, dandruff, gastro, sinusitis, you name it!
Modern Essentials Book: You can also purchase the Modern Essentials Book, which is a much more in depth version of the App and a wonderful resource to keep in the home and grow your knowledge. Lots of science related information if you like that. It is a little heavy to just chuck in your handbag, and is around $35 + p&h.
Emotions and Essential Oils Book: A polar perspective on the oils compared to the Modern Essentials resources, this book digs deep into the emotional aspects of essential oils.
Essential oils are widely used for their physical health benefits, but few have understood the entire scope of their healing capabilities. In Emotions & Essential Oils, essential oils are introduced as powerful emotional healers. This groundbreaking book bridges the gap between the physical and emotional aspects of essential oils and creates a user-friendly guide for taking charge of your emotional health. Each oil is written about with insight and understanding of its innate properties and gifts, and is actually an inspiring read regardless of the oils!
I know many people who use this book to create aromatic anchors for themselves. This can be done by choosing a single oil based on its emotional support value, such as Wild Orange Oil for abundance, or creating a specific blend, such as Lavender – the oil of communication – & Frankincense – the oil of truth and light.
3. companion products and diy guide
Blending and DYI: If you are anything like me, you’re going to want to start blending and diluting your oils into rollers, bottles and spritzers, or even make your own skincare or personal care products.
Free DIY and recipe guides: Gratefully supplied by the humble Alice Nicholls, here are some quick guides to get you started!! I have a few quick recipes over here too.
Some products you will need to purchase to make some of these ‘DIY’ recipes:
- Dr. Bronners Unscented Mild Liquid Castille Soap. This 1L bottle will last you for months. I use this in my hand and body wash and cleanser.
- Witch Hazel - you can use the one at the supermarket or I have a great organic alcohol free alternative on my shop.
- Organic Carrier oils. I use jojoba oil as a carrier for my face serum. I use coconut or almond oil for my body oils and massage oils.
Most people tell me they struggle to find these items in bricks and mortar stores so you can now find them on my online shop.

5. WHAT IS LRP?
doTERRA incentivise those of us who want to place a small monthly order by gifting us points ‘pv’ to spend on free oils. It’s an incredibly generous program. You can cancel it at any time with a phone-call.
There’s no minimum monthly spend, no contracts, and you’re in complete control of whatever it is you want to order. Most people using the LRP are customers who are replacing oils they use the most, growing their collection or buying their ‘monthly use’ household and care items from doTERRA and reaping the benefits of points for free oils along the way. (doTERRA sell laundry concentrate, cleaning concentrate, toothpaste, etc).
Here is a 2 minute video that elegantly explains the Loyalty Rewards Program
Here is a document that will walk you through the value and how to set it up step by step with pictures. OR here is a tutorial in the doTERRA university to show you how to set up your LRP.

6. GROW AN INCREDIBLE OILS BUSINESS YOURSELF
It’s always your choice to grow a conscious business.
Most people who purchase their doTERRA oils remain loyal loved-up customers.
Over 80% of our database don’t choose to share the oils or grow a business by partnering with doTERRA and that is totally fine! We love our customers.
However for those that do want to host classes and share their love of the oils there is a wonderful opportunity to:
- Earn your oils for free/supplement your income
- Create a financially abundant business simply by sharing the oils with others and changing lives.
When you purchase, you will be connected with that person that you purchase with. They will be your first point of contact in introducing you to the oils and the business opportunity.
In this case, that person is me!
We have team training, Facebook groups, business training and personal support from not only myself but also my upline of Alice Nicholls and Tara Bliss...!
So first things first, get your oils out and start using them! Chuck the diffuser on, try one on as a pure-fume. Your options are endless.
And of course, if you need help or support just reach out.
