I saw Dr Hill at the 2017 Australian Convention in the Gold Coast.  Let me say, he was amazing!  He gave so many great tips and protocols on using the world’s most authentic pure essential oils.

I really loved his eye health tip of using a dilution of dōTERRA’s Salubelle (aka Immortelle) everyday around the eyes for eye health.  It will also support the appearance of younger looking skin.

TerraArmour Rollerball Blends

TerraArmour Rollerball Blends

Do you smell a chocolate undertone when you smell dōTERRA’s insect repellent blend, TerraArmour?  I do.  I find it utterly addictive.  Personally, I feel it’s from the combination of Arborvitae and Vanilla Bean Absolute.

TerraArmour has been one of our household staple essential oils, especially during mozzie season.  This year, my girls started piano lessons, so Glenn and I sit outside chatting quietly whilst they are in their lessons, but there are always lots of mozzies.

In it’s simplest form, I throw a bottle of TerraArmour into my handbag and we apply a few drops from the bottle on our skin.  It has a fractionated coconut oil in the blend, so it’s safe to use it straight from the bottle.  Another way we use it, is to add 20 drops into a 50ml spray bottle with cool boiled water and a pinch of salt, and spray away.

Black Spruce Rollerball Blends

Black Spruce Rollerball Blends

I love the spicy scent of black spruce essential oil.  It’s great to have spicy almost perfume-like notes of essential oils to add depth to your pure-fumes and personal care products.

When I first smelt black spruce it reminded me so much of my beloved douglas fir essential oil.  It’s that fresh earthy scent coming from the needles and branches.  Teleporting my imagination to a forest.  My happy place.  The scent immediately soothes and relaxes me.

I was completely drawn to using it in pure-fumes as a top note with a difference.

Grapefruit Rollerball Blends

I have an absolute love for Grapefruit essential oil at the moment.

My favourite way to use grapefruit essential oil is to drop 1 drop into a glass then top it with soda water.  We have a soda stream, as it’s more cost effective.  I find it incredibly refreshing.  It’s also a great way to detox our bodies, and a digestive tonic.  I find I always feel better whenever I drink it.

However, I also love it’s citrus scent as a top note in rollerball pure-fume blends, and it’s equally pleasant smelling diffused.

Turmeric Rollerball Blends

Turmeric Rollerball Blends

I have to admit when dōTERRA released the turmeric essential oil at the 2018 Global Convention I was super excited to start using it.  Primarily, for it’s internal benefits for anti-inflammatory and anti-rheumatic purposes.

It was another story when I got my first bottle, as I was slightly repulsed by the smell.  I am however pleased to say that it’s since grown on me.  Nowadays, I like the spicy base note depth it adds to blends. Continue reading Turmeric Rollerball Blends
