It makes Scents - dōTERRA® Touch Kit
There’s no denying that scent is a powerful tool for our wellbeing and the practice of aromatherapy is a thoroughly researched and respected method of healthcare across the globe. Though it’s not until you’ve personally experienced the positive effects of therapeutically pure essential oils that you can understand their place in our busy modern lives.
The thought of aromatherapy may still sound a little “hippy” to some people, but have you ever noticed how the smell of mums cooking leaves you with a warm and fuzzy feeling? Or how the peppermint toothpaste makes your mouth feel clean? Using these examples, you can see how scent is connected to your state of mind. You can feel comforted by the waft of mums lasagne as you walk in her front door, and the minty fragrance of your toothpaste leaves you feeling clean and fresh.
I have personally experienced how essential oils can contribute to adjusting your mindset, your emotional wellbeing, and your health. Because of this, I work hard to share as much as I can about when, how, and why to use them in your everyday life.
With this being said, allow me to introduce you to the range of essential oils offered in the dōTERRA Touch Kit and I’ll explain how the properties of each essential oil can benefit you and your family’s lives.
The kit is made to provide quick access and easy use of nine of the most popular essential oils in the range. Each 10ml roller bottle is premixed with a carrier of Fractionated Coconut Oil so you can apply topically to the skin and reap the benefits of aromatherapy conveniently, no matter where you are.
Using Essential Oils Aromatically
We’ve looked at the connection between scent and feeling, and we’ve acknowledged how mums cooking and fresh fragrances connect with our state of mind. So what happens when we diffuse or wear essential oils and inhale their naturally occurring properties?
When we breathe we are absorbing the molecules of any given scent in the air around us, and these molecules stimulate the olfactory receptors which are found deep in our nasal passages. To provide a very simple overview of the process, these receptors then carry signals of that specific scent to several areas of your brain making it possible for you to recognise the aroma and attribute it to a memory or feeling. This is why scent is so strongly tied to memory and mood, and how we can use aromatherapy to stimulate and support us.
Which Essential Oils Included in the dōTERRA Touch Kit?
One of the most popular essential oils, Peppermint Oil has been traditionally used in aromatherapy to reduce cough, support mental focus, and help relieve the symptoms of mild tension or headache. It is also well known for being a natural insect deterrent (so it’s a good one to take on picnics), and it’s fresh and minty aroma will uplift and energise your mood. Apply to the spine every couple of hours for full body support when feeling unwell.
Oregano is one of the most powerful and potent essential oils available and has been used for centuries in traditional healing practices. Carvacrol and Thymol, which are the two main chemical components in Oregano essential oil, have strong purifying properties and are renowned for their antibacterial uses. Diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil, Oregano Touch is perfect for topical application to the skin as the neat essential oil is too hot for this. You can apply it to the bottom of your feet, or either side of the trachea, to boost your immune system or use topically before the ice blue touch roller for relief of sore muscles.
DigestZen® (Proprietary Blend)
If you’re feeling anxious about a long flight or road trip, keep this one nearby and enjoy the soothing effects of this spicy, sweet, liquorice aroma which will help relieve your stress and leave you feeling calm. As the name suggests, this blend supports you to “digest” physically, mentally and/or emotionally. Apply clockwise around the belly button and rub in. Also great for use on the face over the cheek bones when you've eaten something that doesn't agree with you, causing the snuffles.
This centuries-old prized and precious essential oil offers soothing and beautifying properties which are used to revitalise the skin and support feelings of peace, relaxation, satisfaction and overall spiritual and emotional wellness. Apply it to your hands after a hard day's work for a soothing effect, and massage on the bottom of your feet or back of the neck, to help you relax as the aroma creates a peaceful and meditative space.
Ice Blue® (Proprietary Blend)
Perfect for a soothing massage after a long day of work. An icy fresh combination of Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile, Helichrysum and Osmanthus essential oils work together to help soothe and cool tired and sore muscles. With a scent reminiscent of a sports rub this is a popular blend for those that work out.
Easy Air® (Proprietary Blend)
This family favourite can be applied topically to the chest, back or bottom of the feet to help calm the senses before a restful night’s sleep. Containing Eucalyptus this beautiful oil may help with seasonal threats and to promote feelings of easy breathing. For loud noises while you or your partner sleeps you might like to apply to the top of each big toe for support.
On Guard® (Proprietary Blend)
I’ve covered this exceptional product in other blogs and newsletters, and it’s no wonder On Guard is one of dōTERRA’s best-selling blends. Use the Touch roller as a natural hand cleanser on the go (perfect for both adults and children), and enjoy the energizing and uplifting aroma of Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary. Apply to either side of the throat or soles of the feet for those with sensitive skin when feeling under the weather.
The leaves of the Melaleuca tree have been used for centuries and for limitless applications. Reach for your easy-to-use Tea Tree essential oil touch roller at your next outdoor occasion to benefit from its natural insect-repelling properties, and use it to cleanse your skin and nails for the antibacterial and anti fungal properties. You’ll love the clean and invigorating scent and naturally occurring cooling effect. My teenagers have their own roller bottle in their bathroom to sort out unwelcome skin redness.
This unmistakable scent and versatile oil can be used for bathing, relaxation, and as a perfume. Its bouquet of fresh, floral and clean aromas instils peace, eases tension and promotes a calm and comforting environment. Create the perfect environment for a restful and quality night’s sleep by applying a small amount to your pillow or bedding or by massaging into the soles of your feet. Keep your Lavender Touch nearby and use as a hand rub to soothe your skin, calm anxiety and quieten your mind during stressful periods. Lavenders calming properties can help support the skin in so many ways when it is under challenge or stress.
My family and I have individually enjoyed the benefits of each of these touch rollers, and it’s safe to say our kit has been used daily since it arrived. In a ready to apply format I trust my children to apply them as needed in a diluted safe form, without the worry of essential oils being dripped on polished floorboards in our home. Being a small kit of 9 rollers makes it easy to learn which ones to use as the need arises, no aromatherapy training required.
I’ve been using small amounts on my wrists, neck, or heart and enjoying the little whiffs of scent throughout the day. I’m instantly reminded why I chose to use that particular scent, which centres my thoughts and helps me to focus on the task at hand. A little truly goes a long way to help me feel energised, attentive, and calm.
