Our pure essential oils are revolutionizing the way families manage their health. We harness nature’s most powerful elements and share these gifts through our global community of Wellness Advocates.



About doTERRA:

doTERRA is a name derived from Latin, meaning Gift of the Earth. The company upholds a high ethics standard, and believes in helping everyone to live a healthier life, naturally. All of doTERRA’s essential oils are 100% Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. This is what makes them different to other oil companies, in that you can actually ingest some of these oils, due them not being “cut” with any other harmful chemicals or oils. They also ensure that their harvesting methods are sustainable, and environmentally conscious. That is why local communities are paid to harvest the plants, in the areas where the plants grow indigenously. There are no middle men, so the communities benefit directly from their hard work, and you get the most potent oils.

On Guard:

On Guard is an essential oil protective blend. This assists your immune, and respiratory systems health. It helps keep any nasty bugs away, and should you catch a bug, it helps your system clear the infection quicker, and prevents the bug from being passed on. This oil can be used in a few different ways:

Topically: Can be applied to the skin, to be absorbed into the body. This can be applied under the feet or down the spine. This can also be applied to your throat, should you have a sore throat.

Internally: You can make a throat spray using this to help fight off a cough or cold, add a few drops into a veggie capsule and drink, or add a drop into a glass of water and drink.

Aromatically: Diffuse this to help purify the air

You can also add this oil to your natural cleaning materials to help disinfect any surfaces.It is suggested that you dilute this oil 1:10 for children, and 1:3/5 for adults, as the oil is quite potent, and may cause sensitivity if used without dilution.


This lemon oil will surprise you! It has the most pleasant lemon fragrance I have ever smelt! I literally wanted to pour the oil down my throat when I first opened the bottle! It is simply delicious!

Lemon oil is great to cook with too – I am talking more of your dressing, fridge tart type cooking. The only draw back to actually cooking on a hot plate with any essential oil, is that you break down their components that give you all those great health benefits, so, if you’re just wanting the flavour, then by all means, but if you are wanting the health benefits that go with that, then add the oil in after you have taken the food off the heat, and let it cooled a bit. You can use normally in any non-baked cheesecakes, fridge tarts, smoothies, date balls etc. There are some great recipes available online using this oil, but please make sure that you use doTERRA, and not any other lemon oil, as you do not know what may be in the other ones.

This is also a great body cleanser. Just add 1 or 2 drops to a glass of water in the mornings. Please note that this oil does lend to photosensitivity, so please use sunblock religiously if you are applying, or ingesting this oil regularly, as you will get sunburnt a lot quicker than usual.
