I want to share with you some common doTERRA essential oil “recipes” that I (and my family) use frequently. I only endorse the use of doTERRA essential oils as they are thoroughly tested using gas chromatography and mass spectrometry equipment to ensure purity and consistent potency. Keep in mind that I am not a medical doctor and this information is not intended to diagnose or treat any medical condition. This is for informational purposes only – and unless specified, the recipes are intended for adult dosage.
- Cold and Flu Prevention – “The Cold Bomb”
In an empty vegetable capsule, place:
5 drops of doTERRA’s On-Guard, 4 drops of Thyme, 3 drops of Melaluca, 2 drops of Oregano, 1 drop of Peppermint essential oils. Swallow with water. Repeat 3-5 times per day for 3 or more days until cold symptoms subside.
- Sore Throat
In a shot glass, fill 1/4 full with warm water and 3 drops of doTERRA’s Lemon and 2 drops of Melaluca essential oils. Gargle as deep as you can for as long as you are able…then swallow. It’s not the most tasty cocktail, but I assure you, if you continue the gargle 3-5 times per day for 2 or more days, your sore throat should clear up without becoming worse. **I use this in conjunction with “The Cold Bomb” when multiple cold symptoms are present.
- Stomach Ache
In an empty vegetable capsule, place 3 drops of doTERRA’s Digestzen, 3 drops of Fennel, 3 drops of Chamomile and 3 drops of Peppermint essential oils. Swallow with water. Repeat every few hours until stomach ache is gone. You can also apply 3-5 drops of Digestzen topically on the stomach area. **On a small child, I would apply only 1-2 drops of Digestzen topically on the stomach area with a carrier oil (such as fractionated coconut oil).
- Sore Joints
In an empty vegetable capsule, place 4 drops of doTERRA’s Lemongrass, 4 drops of Cypress, and 4 drops of Frankincense essential oils. Swallow with water. Repeat every few hours until pain subsides. You can also apply 4-5 drops of Lemongrass, Cypress, White Fir, and Frankincense topically (with or without a carrier oil) on the painful area of the body. doTERR’s Deepblue rub is also recommended for topical application.
- Cough Relief
In a vegetable capsule (or can be applied to the bottoms of the feet – especially in kids) place 2 drops of doTERRA’s Melalueca, 2 drops of Peppermint, 2 drops of Myrrh, 2 drops of Eucalyptus, 2 drops of Lavender, and 2 drops of Basil essential oil. Repeat every 4 hours to help control cough.
- Allergy Relief
In a vegetable capsule place 3 drops of doTERRA’s Peppermint, 3 drops of Lavender, and 3 drops of Lemon essential oils. Repeat every 4 hours to help relieve itchy eyes, scratchy throat, and stuffy/runny nose.
