Below are some frequently asked questions. If you have additional questions please feel free to email me or send me a private message on Facebook; I will add FAQs as necessary.
Q. How can I use doTERRA Essential Oils?
A. doTERRA Essential Oils can be used internally, topically, or aromatically.
Q. I've always heard you shouldn't take essential oils internally, what makes doTERRA different?
A. doTERRA has made the decision to put every single oil through a rigorous testing process (including Mass Spectrometry and Gas Chromatography) to ensure that every bottle of oil sold is truly 100% Pure and harvested and produced at the peak of perfection. This purity assurance means doTERRA oil is free from impurities, chemicals, pesticides, synthetics, and fillers. As such, they have the confidence to recommend internal usage for most oils*.
*Some oils should never be taken internally, for those oils doTERRA specifies "not for internal use" or "for topical use only" on the bottle
Q. Can I put doTERRA essential oils in my water?
A. Yes! The citrus oils especially (Lemon, Lime, Wild Orange, etc.) are delicious and refreshing in water or iced tea. You can also add Peppermint to ice water for a cool blast or Lavender to lemonade for a tasty and unique twist. When adding essential oils to a beverage, please be sure you are drinking from a glass container.
Q. I have a hard time believing essential oils really work, is there any real Science behind essential oils?
A. Absolutely! The way you feel is completely understandable, and I think all essential oil users have struggled with it from time to time. Thankfully, there is a great deal of science behind what essential oils can do! Check out the AromaticScience website for peer reviewed, published studies on Essential Oil research.
Q. I feel overwhelmed, how will I ever remember what to use and how to use it?
A. Don't worry, we all feel that way in one way or another! First, if you live in the Southeastern Michigan area there are free educational classes at least twice a month. To be notified of the class schedule, you can sign up for my monthly newsletter here: Subscribe

Q. Are essential oils expensive? I'm afraid I'll never be able to afford them.
A. Essential oils are an investment in your family's health and overall wellness. On the surface some of them can seem expensive (I sure thought so at first), but when price is broken down by drop and when compared with the cost my family used to spend on traditional "healthcare" and medication, cleaning products, and personal care products, our doTERRA essential oils are invaluable. Additionally, most bottles are 15mL and contain approximately 250 drops, which typically equals close to 250 doses. Since you won't use every oil every day, that means that some oils will last you months. Even the oils my family does use every day (like Lemon and On Guard) typically last us slightly more than a month. See the per drop cost breakdown HERE. If you're interested in more information on how doTERRA essential oils can be affordable for your family please email me or send me a private message on Facebook.
Q. Do you do in-home classes or parties?
A. YES!! I love teaching classes! It's a great opportunity for you to become more familiar with essential oils and their multitude of uses and, most fun of all, smell and sample the oils. If that's you and you're in Southeast Michigan, please contact me via email or Facebook. I look forward to introducing you to the wonderful world of essential oils!
