Melaleuca / Tea Tree

This week we’ll be spotlighting dōTERRA Melaleuca essential oil. Melaleuca, or Tea Tree oil, is one of my all around favorite essential oils because of how versatile it is. It’s best known for its purifying qualities, which makes it useful for cleansing the skin and home surfaces, purifying the air, or promoting healthy immune function.

dōTERRA Melaleuca essential oil is renowned for its cleansing and rejuvenating effect on the skin. For occasional skin irritations, apply 1–2 drops of Melaleuca essential oil onto affected area. For an added cleansing property, combine 1–2 drops with your facial cleanser, or apply to the skin after shaving. Not only is it best for cosmetic care, dōTERRA Melaleuca works great when cleaning hard surfaces. Add a few drops to a spray bottle with water and use on surfaces in your home to protect against environmental and seasonal threats.

Ginger

Do you love to try new foods? dōTERRA Ginger is a main ingredient in many Asian dishes for its hot, fragrant flavor. It may be more familiar to you as it’s used more commonly in sweets such as gingerbread and ginger snaps. When used as a kitchen spice, Ginger adds flavor to a variety of dishes and can also help support healthy digestion.* Apply ginger over your lower abdomen for a soothing massage to help reduce bloating, gas, and occasional indigestion.*

I’ve been traveling recently and sometimes have occasional nausea when sitting in a car for too long. Something I found that really works for me is dōTERRA Ginger essential oil. dōTERRA Ginger can help reduce occasional nausea by either being applied topically or inhaled.* I diffuse or place a drop of ginger in the palm of my hand and inhale to create a soothing aroma.

Patchouli

Diffuse alone or combine with woody aromas to enjoy the grounding benefits of dōTERRA Patchouli. Apply it to dry areas to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes. When diluted, dōTERRA Patchouli acts as a natural deodorant. The strong and unique scent makes a great base in floral blends.

Patchouli is a member of the mint family and blends well with Peppermint oil in this mouth rinse recipe: https://www.doterra.com/US/en/blog/diy-patchouli-mouth-rinse

Historically used to freshen breath, the musky-sweet, and earthy aroma is refreshing and deodorizing.

Arborvitae

Do you love the great outdoors, but dislike being pestered by bugs? You’re not alone. Bugs can turn an outdoor adventure into an uncomfortable situation. Make sure to avoid any discomfort bugs may bring and pack Arborvitae essential oil for your next outing. Arborvitae oil is great for hiking and camping due to its chemical components—tropolones. Tropolones have chemical properties that act as a natural insect repellant. For an enjoyable hiking or outdoor experience, apply Arborvitae essential oil to your wrists and ankles. Another way to repel unwanted creepy crawlies is by placing a few drops of Arborvitae essential oil into a diffuser and letting the warm aroma fill your home. Now sit back and relax, knowing that the little critters are doing their best to leave your house in peace.
