I BELIEVE EVERY HOME NEEDS A DOTERRA HOME ESSENTIALS KIT!
I’m on a mission to help people find natural alternatives for their health and their home. Most of the products that you use around your home have harmful ingredients in them that can cause major issues to your health.
My favourite all natural ingredients to use are essential oils. They are so versatile and can be used for so many different things.
Essential oils have helped me replace so many products in my house, from cooking products to cleaning products to skincare products as well as some items in my medicine cabinet.
The possibilities of how you can use essential oils are endless. See below how I use the oils in the Home Essential Kit – most of which I use daily.
The kit comes with a diffuser plus 10 of the most popular essential oils in the doTerra range:
- Single Oils
Melaleuca (Tea Tree) (15ml)
Digest Zen (15ml)
Easy Air (15ml)
Ice Blue (5ml)
On Guard (15m)
+ Petal diffuser

With a wholesale account, there are also options available to receive 10-30% back in FREE product points and the ability to receive the product of the month for FREE.
