CO-IMPACT SOURCING
doTERRA sources all their oils from where the
plant best thrives; where the soil and the
humidity are prime and where the plant can be
tended to by it's community. The oils you’re using
are sourced from over 40 countries, and more
than half of these are developing nations. This
means that we are bringing a market to
communities that in dire need of resources
(clean drinking water, medical supplies,
education). Instead of simply buying farms in the
US, doTERRA partners directly with farmers and
collaborates with them long-term, excluding any
middlemen who drive up prices. This is just one
way this amazing company is making an impact.
Please do take a few minutes to learn more
about co-impact sourcing - knowing where our
products come from is an important part of being
conscious consumers.

impact-sourcing
HEALING HANDS FOUNDATION
doTERRA Wellness advocates (I.e. you xo) have
the opportunity every month to donate a dollar
(or more) to this foundation which is doing some
seriously tear-jerking stuff for the communities we
work with to produce our oils. Every year, millions
of dollars are raised and invested into future
brightening endeavours for those that are truly
vulnerable. Seriously. Think:
Haiti, where we source our Vetiver - clean
drinking water (where before the children were
walking hours in each direction to collect water)
Guatemala, where we source our Cardamom -
feminine hygiene education (teaching the
women about menstruation and sexual health).
Bulgaria, where we source Lavender - providing
a safe space for transitioning orphans (16-18
years) to live in which they can learn hospitality
skills and integrate into the world in a supportive
way.
Somalia, where we source our Frankincense -
we have provided schooling for the farmers
daughters (usually education is saved for the
boys).
This is but a handful of examples. I’m personally
pretty stoked and honoured to partner with a
soulful company that has people's hearts and
the Earth's future in mind. But check this:
regardless of whether you want to simply use the
oils, share them with your community or build an
empire, every single purchase you make means
you are legitimately changing the world and
making it a better place for people that need a
helping hand.

Using essential oils aromatically can
influence you in a myriad of ways.
Traditionally, aromatic usage has been
aimed at improving a person’s mood. A
better and more stable temperament can
have countless benefits on your life, every
single day. Direct inhalation of doTERRA’s
Elevation or Citrus Bliss first thing in the
morning can help you wake up and
motivate you to take on the day’s tasks.
Diffuse essential oils with distinct top
notes such as Eucalyptus and Basil
throughout the day to keep you
productive at work. A quick breath of
Peppermint can give you the boost to
make it through a tough workout.
Diffusing Lavender or Vetiver at night, or
adding a few drops to your pillow, can
help you prepare for the restful sleep you
require to get through the ensuing day.
Using essential oils aromatically can be the
boost you need to get through the normal
stresses of day-to-day life. Studies show
convincing evidence that simply inhaling
the aroma of an essential oil is effective
for calming nervous or anxious feelings in
a variety of settings.
All diffusers are different, so I will always advise to follow the directions provided. Then add a blend below
or create another to try, then sit back and smell the magic

This article was originally featured in the Fall 2015 LIVING Magazine. Anyone who has topically applied
dōTERRA Deep Blue® Soothing Blend before and after a workout knows how quickly and intensely it works.
But the cooling sensation can sometimes be a little strong for small children or people with sensitive skin.
Diluting essential oils in a carrier oil before application is an excellent way to reduce sensitive skin reactions
to certain essential oils, but will it reduce its effectiveness? The answer may surprise you. Recent research
suggests diluting essential oils for topical applications not only does not reduce effectiveness, but may
actually have certain advantages.
LIPOPHILICITY
The skin is one of the largest organs in the body, by both surface area and weight. Although it regulates
several aspects of physiology and manages sensory reception, it is primarily a protector. The skin acts as a
barrier to protect internal organs from variations in temperature, pressure and mechanical impacts. It also
acts as a defender against unwanted foreign agents such as viruses and bacteria, and it does so with
amazing proficiency. For thousands of years it was thought that the skin was essentially impermeable, but
modern research has revealed that it is not particularly effective at keeping out water and lipidsoluble
substances.(1) How essential oils permeate the skin when applied topically is a fascinating process, and
one of the most important concepts in understanding how essential oils influence our health. Essential oils
are lipophilic, meaning they are attracted to and are soluble in fatty substances. Diluting essential oils in a
carrier before applying accentuates this property, providing a number of benefits.
BENEFITS OF DILUTION
Dilution is one of the most important aspects of effective topical application; it is also one of the most
misunderstood. When used properly, carrier oils have been shown to improve essential oil topical
application through several different pathways. Evaporation is the primary issue in topical application, as
body heat and the skin present a formidable barrier. One of the most important benefits of dilution is that
it slows the flashing off of the volatile aromatic compounds, largely through one of the fundamental laws
of fluid dynamics: decreasing the surface area of a substance exposed to air reduces the rate of
evaporation. When diluted, essential oil chemical constituents have been shown to pass through the
epidermis more efficiently than when applied neat . (2) Furthermore, another study showed that dilution
may expedite the process, as varying levels of specific constituents were
detected in exhaled air in as quickly as 20 minutes when using a carrier while a
neat application resulted in no detection for up to two hours. (3)
Understanding proper dilution is an important factor in safe and effective
essential oil use. Foremost, any substance that has a near-neutral pH, such as
dōTERRA® Fractionated Coconut Oil, is incapable of altering the chemical
makeup of an essential oil. Proper dilution, with an appropriate carrier, will not
change the effectiveness. One of the most common concerns is the use of
essential oils on those with sensitivity considerations, especially children.
Although sensitivities are rare when proper usage guidelines are followed with
neat application, by decreasing the rate of evaporation and therefore further
Page 5

limiting exposure, dilution allows for an even greater margin of safety. Dilution requires you use less oil for
the same effect. When trying a new oil or when applying warmer oils such as Oregano or Thyme, dilution
can decrease the risk for a hypersensitive reaction, reduce waste, and provide an ideal environment to
discover which essential oils work best for your situation. Along with improving application efficiency,
there are also secondary benefits to using dōTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil as a carrier. It has a light
emollient effect and is excellent for your skin. Unlike other vegetable-based oils, it does not leave an
unpleasant greasy residue or interfere with the valuable properties of the essential oil it is carrying.
dōTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil is also very stable, so you don’t have to be concerned that it will go
rancid after a few uses. Learning to use dōTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil appropriately as a carrier will
improve the experience for your entire family. Despite the growing body of evidence regarding the
benefits of dilution, both methods of topical application have their place in the developing model of
effective essential oil use. Many of the dōTERRA essential oils can be used safely and effectively neat, but
proper dilution can be used appropriately at any time and may even offer some advantages.

I feel the Tisserand dilution chart is
the best visual chart to start with
blending and diluting your creations,
I have added a few suggestions to
make it easier to work with. If you
are concerned about using essential
oils topically I always suggest you
conduct a patch test on your skin to
test for any sensitivity.
Skin sensitivity patch test
Applying oils directly to the skin
should mostly be done using a
carrier oil, if are not sure about
how an oil might react on a
person’s skin due to sensitivity,
always do a patch test on the skin
in the crease of the elbow. A
patch test is where you place a
small amount of oil (using a
carrier) in a sensitive skin area
and then wait 15 minutes to see
if a reaction occurs. Always have
carrier oil on hand in case of
reaction and then use the carrier
oil to wipe away the oil from the
area.
Massage – please always conduct
a skin sensitivity test on anyone who has not had any previous exposure to essential oils or to carrier oils
(Almond/ coconut/macadamia etc). If there are any reactions, it is hard to calm down if you have covered a
large amount of skin.

Let’s get started on our first project, making a spray with a 30ml spritzer bottle. You have a
few choices available to start with, pick one OR make them all. You will notice one
common factor with all the recipes, that there is always 15 drops per the 30mls. Dilution
for a 30ml spritzer is 15 drops added to the carrier of your choice, see dilution chart on
page 7 for more information. On the back of this booklet you will see some labels you can
cut out and stick onto the bottle with just clear sticky tape.

Each type of oil contains a mixture of
natural chemical compounds unique to
that species of plant and to the
environment in which the plant is
grown. For thousands of years, humans
have ingested plants in the form of food
as well as plant parts and extracts as
herbal health products and teas from
leaves and flowers, which contain
essential oils. One could argue that it
should also be safe to ingest essential
oils in small quantities, just as we have
been doing when ingesting plants
containing essential oils. Because they
are produced naturally by plants, essential oils are found in naturally balanced mixtures. Then why is there
an ongoing concern about the internal use of essential oils? Internal use can not only be very effective, but
is also safe.
Oils first have an effect on local tissues. The local effect may be felt more strongly when applied internally
compared to when applied to the skin because the nerves in the mucosa are closer to the surface, often
more numerous, and can be more easily stimulated compared to the nerves in the skin. Although the skin
is thicker and seems to be less fragile than the mucous membranes, the reality is that similar to the skin
the mucosa has many features that are protective, and therefore conducive to the use of essential
oils. Like skin, the mucosa has many layers designed to protect the body against disease and toxic
exposures. And similar to skin, the mucosa has an ability to constantly restore itself and to regenerate after
harmful exposures, such as trauma from teeth or heat from foods that can cause ulceration. The mucosa
heals an open sore very quickly, so it can resume its protective function. The mucosa also has thousands of
mucous glands that secrete mucous to create a protective film over the tissues. The mucous is continually
being produced and continually migrating as the cilia beat, limiting any local exposure. When essential oils
contact the mucosa, they are absorbed to some degree at the initial point of contact, but much of the oil
will be continually diluted by the mucous. Rapid absorption and constant dilution allow the oils to have a
dramatic yet temporary effect, which explains why any sensation you have in the mouth or throat from
essential oils taken internally is temporary. Because the mucosa is designed to be protective, essential oils
can be safely used internally.
Page 8
Michele Wragg of Born Awesome Holistic Health
The premise of all of these discussions is that essential oils could be harmful when taken
internally. However, studies suggest just the opposite. Essential oils may actually be protective to the
mucosa. Many studies show that essential oils can have a positive effect when there is a problem with the
stomach’s mucous membranes.* For example, limonene, found in citrus oils, was shown to help protect
the stomach mucosa in a preclinical study.(3) This protective effect was shown without affecting normal
stomach acid secretion, gastrin enzyme secretion, or antioxidant glutathione production.(3) Many other
studies have also demonstrated similar effects.* (1–6)
Avoiding hot oils that may be irritating to the mucous membranes, using small single use amounts, or using
less than the maximum daily amounts recommended, are all safe practices that can help us have
confidence in using essential oils internally. If we are using the oils for a local effect, such as to soothe the
mouth and throat, then the oils can be appropriately diluted. Internal use of essential oils may be the best
method to help improve function of the gut and improve digestion, because the oils can get to the area of
need. Taking essential oils internally may be a very effective method to get the oils to be absorbed into the
body to promote health and wellness, for an overall soothing effect on the body, and for a calming effect
on mood. Using the appropriate amount of oils in Veggie Caps or prepackaged in the appropriate amounts
in soft gels can be an effective way to take essential oils internally so that they can be maximally absorbed
by the gut for a whole body effect.
Dr. David K. Hill, D.C. shared these
recommendations at the 2015 dōTERRA
Convention. To create these recommendations he
balanced effective ranges of essential oils with
known safety data. It is important that essential oil
users stay within the Ideal Amount ranges to
derive the maximum benefit from using the
essential oils. In fact, overwhelming the body with
too much essential oil can sometimes lead to
unwanted outcomes. This is because cells in the
body utilize complex chemical reactions
to metabolize the oils. It is never appropriate to
exceed the metabolic capacity of the cells. Learn
more about metabolism in this article: Essential Oil Metabolism.
The Ideal Amount column states how much total essential oil a user should take at a time. This amount can
be repeated every 4-6 hours, for amounts no greater than the 24-hour Maximum amount. Internal use
refers to taking essential oils in a capsule or a soft gel form. Oral use refers to essential oils taken in water
or other liquid, or under the tongue. Oral use is not recommended for children. There is no
recommendation made for aromatic use, as this greatly depends on the size of the room and other
variable factors. As always, moderation is best.

These are general recommendations that don’t take into account the individual health and experience
levels of the user. dōTERRA essential oils are very potent and each individual will react differently to them.
It is important to be aware of one’s own unique health circumstances and adjust accordingly. A key point
from Dr. Hill’s presentation is that we should be more moderate with our essential oil use when our health
is in anyway compromised.
These recommendations are meant as introductory guidelines, and individuals should take into account
their own personal experience and the direction of their health care provider in pursuit of wellness
through essential oil use.

Transforming Your Spice Cabinet
with Essential Oils
Did you know you can substitute most dry spices and
herbs with essential oils? Compared to your ordinary
dry herb collection, essential oils are far more potent
and flavorful. With just one drop of essential oil added
to your favorite recipe, you’ll experience a burst of
fresh flavor with unique health benefits. Creating Your
Favorite Flavors with Essential Oils Tip: Usually, one
drop of essential oil is equivalent to two teaspoons of
dried herbs. However, it’s a good idea to start with less
and gradually add more to taste. Dip a toothpick into
the bottle and stir into your recipe until you reach the
desired flavor.

Essential oils can be valuable tools for every gardener. Whether you are trying to chase away garden pests,
improve health and growth of the plants, or restore those gardener hands, essential oils can help. Here are
some easy ways you can use essential oils to enhance your natural gardening experience.
Clean Greenhouse
I clean my greenhouse and garden tools with a mixture of 10 drops of Melaleuca in about 33 ounces of
distilled water. We put this in a spray bottle and clean every inch of the greenhouse. -Maila Chan
Slug Away
Last year, I had the best luck getting rid of slugs using White Fir essential oil on my peppers. I have also
used Peppermint oil for aphids and mystery bugs. Peppermint also works great for cooling your body off in
the hot sun. I make after-sun spray with Lavender, Peppermint, and aloe juice. After a long day of working
on my garden, Deep Blue® Rub comes in handy for the joints and muscles. I clean my hands with essential
oil sugar scrub. I can’t tell you how much I love using dōTERRA in the garden. -Jamie Stitt
Essential Oils and Plant Companionship
I have been an organic farmer for 35 years. I have been using essential oils in my gardens since I have been
with dōTERRA. I teach the organic portion of “The Master Gardener” class for my local area. My class this
year will include the wonderful uses of dōTERRA essential oils in the garden—not only for pest
management, but also for plant vigor and growth. I don’t use any chemicals in my garden at all and love
sharing new and safe ways to enjoy gardening! I have substituted dōTERRA essential oils for companion
plants—the results are amazing! For example, basil is a great companion plant for tomatoes. I use Basil
essential oil in my watering can to give the plants a dose that can be absorbed through the root system, or
I use it as a foliar spray. This helps to give the tomato plant great vigor for growth and plant resistance. -
Kay Pittman
Bug Attack
My garden was being attacked by a beetle-like bug. It was eating away at everything, especially my favorite
lily plant. I put a couple drops of TerraShield® in a spray bottle with water, sprayed the plants, and the
beetle moved on! dōTERRA was part of my inspiration for my garden. -Kristen Willis
Ants No More
Last summer, I was attacked by ants. They had colonized near my strawberry patch. I panicked a little—I
hate ants!—and dowsed the suckers in a solution of water and Peppermint. The next day, the ants were
completely gone! I was impressed by how fast it worked. Plus, even though I did go a little overboard (a
few sprays would have worked), I know Peppermint is safe for my strawberries and me. -Elizabeth Sperling
Fact: Vinegar makes an effective natural herbicide and weed killer.
Tip: Apply Lavender to soothe irritated skin associated with certain plants or bugs.

NUTRITION CORNER WITH DR. CARSTEN SMIDT
Having created some of the most sophisticated and best-selling multivitamin/mineral supplements in the industry over the last
20 years, I’ve seen the products and their underlying research evolve in stages. Usually, it takes the products about 5–10 years
to follow the research. Now, we have reached yet another critical point when research creates a new paradigm shift for
multivitamin/mineral supplements. With our new Daily Nutrition Pack, dōTERRA® leads the way so that you can be among the
first to reap the full benefits of a truly expertly formulated, all-in-one daily multinutrient supplement.
Do I Need a Multivitamin?
The short answer is a resounding yes. Anybody in the scientific community who seriously studies vitamin and mineral nutrition
agrees that virtually everyone’s nutrition falls short in meeting even the bare minimum requirements for many nutrients (known
as the RDI—Recommended Dietary Intakes). Trying to get the RDIs of all 26 essential vitamins, minerals, and trace elements—
micronutrients—from foods alone is next to impossible, even if you eat a wholesome, balanced diet. Fruits and vegetables are
rich in these micronutrients, plus they contain important phytonutrients (carotenoids, polyphenols, essential oils, etc.). The
problem is that hardly anyone eats enough fruits and vegetables. A recent analysis of WHO/FAO data (Murphy et al., Br J Nutr
112(6):1004, 2014) shows that this is a world-wide problem: three out of four people on this planet don’t even meet the
minimum recommended five daily servings of fruits and vegetables! Instead, modern diets are high in refined foods and
beverages devoid of micronutrients and full of empty calories.
In the U.S., nine out of ten adults do not meet the RDIs for vitamins D and E, and over half of us don’t meet the RDIs for vitamin
A, calcium, and magnesium (Fulgoni, et al., J Nutr 141(10):1847-54, 2011). Even if you are vegan or vegetarian, you’re unlikely to
get enough vitamin D, B12, calcium, iron, and zinc. Long-term, these nutrient deficiencies cause lack of energy, poor immunity,
weak bones, cognitive decline, and a host of other health problems.
Page 17
Michele Wragg of Born Awesome Holistic Health
Experts agree that you should try to eat a healthy diet high in fruits and vegetables and take a multivitamin/mineral supplement.
Now, the real question is which supplement should you take and how should it be formulated? Are the RDI amounts even
sufficient? We know today that for most micronutrients they are not, and that optimum intakes are often higher than the RDIs.
But how much higher? And what happens if we get too much? These questions have kept scientists busy for the last 50 years,
and recent research makes it clear that it’s time to rethink again.
Multivitamin Evolution
The first multivitamins hit the retail shelves in the ‘50s and ‘60s and remain a staple in today’s retail and mass markets. These
inexpensive products deliver the RDI of most vitamins and lesser amounts of most minerals. Their mineral sources are often
poorly absorbed and utilized by the body and they lack phytonutrients and essential omega-3 fatty acids.
Then, research in the ‘80s and ‘90s suggested that above-RDI amounts of certain antioxidant vitamins, some B-vitamins, and
trace elements have additional health benefits, and these studies paved the way to the current generation of micronutrient
supplements popular in the specialty and direct-sales markets. These comprehensive products often include mega-doses (10x
RDI or more) of vitamins, better quality minerals, omega-3 fatty acids and phytonutrients, and some make you take 16 or more
capsules or tablets a day. In fact, competition is fierce and many companies are playing a horsepower game where more must
be better.
Most recently, however, the results of very large, long-term studies have shown that mega-doses of micronutrients like vitamin
C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, folate, and selenium don’t work. In fact, some of these studies found negative effects at high doses
previously assumed to be safe. Unfortunately, the supplement industry is still taking a defensive position belittling or dismissing
these studies.
Multivitamin Revolution
The good news for you is that dōTERRA® never believed in the “more-is-better” horsepower game. In fact, we are now in the
unique position to embrace all the recent micronutrient research—positive and negative—and create a completely
revolutionary concept of formulating multivitamins. How?
Let’s take a step back. I mean a giant step back to when we humans first roamed this planet. Our genes change very slowly and
they can take thousands of years to adapt to dietary changes. For most of our history we ate hunter-gatherer diets. Only
recently, our diets and lifestyles changed dramatically with the introduction of agriculture. And in the last 100 years, even more
drastic changes occurred due to the industrialization of our food supply. So modern diets today are very different from the diets
our genes are used to.
Now, take a good look at the dosages used in all of the micronutrient studies, and compare them to the amounts that we used
to get from diets we are genetically programmed for. That’s what we did, and it soon became clear that problems only arise
when we consume much more or much less than what we could possibly get from the natural diets our bodies are genetically
used to. This makes a lot of sense, and we used this approach to set a new standard, one that embraces the concept of natural
balance. For each micronutrient we now have a range of natural intakes that our bodies were made for, and they coincide with
the amounts needed for optimum health benefits.
Restore Natural Balance with Daily Nutrient Pack
dōTERRA’s new Microplex MVp™ and xEO Mega® (Daily
Nutrient Pack) are the first micronutrient supplements in the
industry that apply this new standard of natural balance to all
vitamins, minerals, trace elements, phytonutrients, and
essential fatty acids. This game-changing, patent-pending
approach ensures that you get the optimum amounts and
types of all micronutrients every day, including a full
spectrum of omega-3s, antioxidant polyphenols, and
carotenoids. With Daily Nutrient Pack, you don’t have to
worry about getting too little or too much of anything

How Do I Use Daily Nutrient Pack?
Daily Nutrient Pack (the new Microplex MVp and xEO Mega) is a foundational supplement designed for men and women of all
ages as well as for teenagers. Pregnant and nursing women also benefit, but should consult with their physician as they may
require additional iron or folate. If you desire extra energy benefits, you can add our new, more potent Mito2Max® (with lychee
fruit extract), and if you deal with occasional joint discomfort, we recommend adding our new Deep Blue Polyphenol
Complex™. We also updated Lifelong Vitality Pack with the new Microplex MVp and xEO Mega formulas while keeping the
current Alpha CRS+®.
Dr. Smidt recommends:
Daily Nutrient Pack: A revolutionary micronutrient supplements providing naturally balanced amounts of all vitamins, minerals,
trace elements, phytonutrients, and omega-3 fatty acids. Lifelong Vitality Pack:Now with our new naturally-balanced Microplex
MVp and xEO Mega.
