Lavender, for better sleep
A common ingredient in better sleep products, lavender’s scent can induce feelings of calm that in turn make for a comfortable night’s rest. According to doTERRA’s ‘plant perspective’, approximately three pounds of lavender flowers are required to produce just 15ml of lavender essential oil.
How to use: Lavender is essential for encouraging peacefulness. Just a few drops added to bath water or applied to temples (mixed with a carrier oil) helps to reduce stress.
Citrus, for energy
The rinds or peel of lemons is cold pressed or distilled to produce a pure lemon essential oil. According to doTERRA, a lemon tree has the potential to produce between 500 and 600 pounds of lemons in one year, and it typically takes 50-75 lemons to make one 15ml bottle of lemon essential oil.
How to use: Perhaps the most diverse essential oil in the market, lemon oil can be used in citrusy recipes, to purify air or to create positive energy when diffused.
