Are there any essential oils that can be helpful with a cleanse?

Minimizing toxic load is one of the most overlooked aspects of overall well-being. While doTERRA has a line of nutritional supplements specifically designed to address this issue, there are a number of essential oils that can make the process even more effective. Lemon essential oil, commonly used for internal cleansing, is already included in our Cleanse & Restore Kit; a drop in 4 ounces of liquid creates a refreshing drink that is perfect for any detox program.* There are several other essential oils that can similarly be added to water or your favorite beverage to aid internal cleansing. Peppermint, Juniper Berry, and Rosemary can also naturally support the body’s cleansing systems, including the digestive and urinary tracts.*

How can a diffuser be used to help me sleep?

One of the best uses for a diffuser is to create a relaxing environment for a restful sleep. Essential oils can influence better sleep in a myriad of ways: helping you relax, encouraging feelings of calmness, and grounding your emotions so that you can use that time to fully rejuvenate. As we all have unique aromatic experiences, the key is to find the individual oils that work best for you. Lavender is the most commonly used oil at nighttime, but while most people put it on their pillow or on the collar of their pajamas, it is also great to diffuse. I also recommend diffusing Spearmint, Ylang Ylang, Coriander, Clary Sage, and other individual oils known for their relaxing aromas as you begin your bedtime routine.
