Blog Post: Using the Power of Lavender, Lemon & Peppermint

Good Morning Friends!

Wanted to drop some basic oil knowledge on you before your day gets started or for bookmarking as a helpful read later in your day.

As a doTERRA Wellness Advocate, one of the easiest and most effective ways I have found to introduce oils to a friend who is new to essential oils {or a potential Oil Ambassador teammate} is to provide them with the LLP Intro Kit.  The inside of the packaging these oils come in was smartly designed to incorporate a handy usage chart which indicates how to use the oils, and for what symptoms.  Get your learn on, yo!

Inside the box are one .5mL bottle of each:

  • Lemon Peel: cleansing to the body’s systems and frequently used for respiratory discomfort*
  • Lavender Flower: renowned for its calming and balancing effects*
