This simple usage chart for doTERRA essential oils is only a brief reference for application methods.

Some things to remember:

  1. This information does not apply to all brands of oils. For instance, many brands will not stand behind the internal use of their oils. Learn more about doTERRA and why I recommend them here.
  2. This is not comprehensive. There may be additional precautions and usage information to each oil, or for your particular needs or skin sensitivity. For instance, you may have an allergy, a conflict with medications, or need to dilute an oil that others can use undiluted.
  3. Please be sure to further investigate each oil individually to learn more before using it, always patch test your oils, and when in doubt, dilute and use more caution than you think necessary. (Diluting never hurts efficacy!)
  4. Consult a healthcare professional for medical advice if you are pregnant, nursing, or have any health concerns, as there may be additional oils you should avoid or use with caution.
  5. The information below is not intended to replace medical care, nor is it meant to treat or cure any disease or disorder. Essential oils are compliments to healthy lifestyle and a good relationship with a trusted medical professional. Using this chart acknowledges your agreement to this statement and our disclaimer. 😛
