QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE
1. WHAT IS FRACTIONATED COCONUT OIL (FCO)?
This is what we use as our carrier oil. It is essentially coconut oil with the fat taken out of it (so it will not harden and is non greasy). FCO leaves skin feeling silking smooth, and is great for dry or troubled skin. It is odourless, colourless and will not stain, however it rapidly absorbs into the skin making it the perfect carrier oil for our essential oils.
Whenever I make my own roller blends I add FCO to them. The reason we use this is because it carries the oil for a further distance and penetrates the oils deeper into your skin allowing them to stay on longer.
If you don’t want to use FCO, other alternatives would be oils such as; avocado oil, rose hip oil, apricot kernel oil, jojoba oil, macadamia oil etc
2. WHAT ARE CLASSED AS ‘HOT OILS’?
These are oils that need to be diluted before applying to our skin. If you don’t add a carrier oil to them, you may find your skin starts to have a burning sensation and becomes irritated. Don’t panic… If this happens, grab ANY oil near you and apply to the area to take away that burning type sensation.
See below a list of just a few suggested ‘hot oils’;
3. WHERE DO I APPLY MY OILS?
Inside the crease of the elbows
(The lung, pericardium and heart channels run through the elbow crease. When applied here, the oils quickly enter the lungs and heart. In Chinese medicine, these organs are related to grief and sadness)
Inside wrist creases
(The lung, pericardium and heart channels also run through the wrist creases.Essential oils applied here also move quickly to the chest)
(Roll up and down inside of forearms – both sides – to have oils circulate quickly throughout the body. This is the best location to instantly create change in your emotional state)
Back of the neck or spine
(Apply blends to the back of your neck or spine when you need mental clarity.It is a quick way for oils to enter the brain)
Over the heart area
(This is not actually on your heart, but the location on the sternum, between the breast (or nipple line) Apply blends when dealing with heartache or disappointment)
Around the belly button
(The best oils to apply around the belly button are those related to protection and boundaries, and an increase in immune system function)
Up and down midline of the belly
(Apply oils here when they’re related to self-confidence and self-worth issues. Your belly has many serotonin receptors that contribute to feelings of happiness and self-esteem.You will feel the shift immediately when applying oils on the belly)
Bottoms of the feet
(This is the preferred location when you need calmness and grounding. It is also a great spot for little children or people with sensitive skin. Our pores are the largest here meaning the oil will absorb quick)
Inhale from the hands
Sometimes you just want to inhale oil directly from the bottle. One inhale sends the aromatic compounds to the brain and shifts your entire chemistry. Every blend can be used through inhaling alone
4. HOW MUCH IS A MEMBERSHIP, AND IF I HAVE ONE DO I HAVE TO ORDER MONTHLY TO KEEP IT?
Only $35 (I know, so cheap and kinda amazing). By having this membership, you are able to have your own online account, order your product to come straight to your door, get 25% off all items and have the ability to earn free PV. It’s a no brainer isn’t it.
5. WHAT IS PV?
PV stands for Points Volume.
Every doTERRA product has a money value as well as a points volume. By making regular purchases through your online account, you accrue PV. These PV points are for you to use basically as doTERRA cash dollars to purchase items back.
6. CAN I TAKE THESE OILS INTERNALLY?
You sure can. Due to doTERRA being 100% pure, they do not contain any chemicals or synthetics which means we are able to ingest them.
Some essential oils you are not recommended to take for internal use however are, Arborvitae, Birch, Cedarwood, Cypress, Eucalyptus, White Fir, & Wintergreen. With these particular oils you are best to either apply topically or aromatically.

Yes you can. An amazing book to get if you are pregnant is a book by Stephanie Frittz. She is a midwife who talks about what she has her Mums to be use and what is safe to use and ingest while pregnant and what oils are best to avoid until you have gone into labour
