Here are six doTerra oils to have handy in your handbag, around the house and when travelling.
A natural repellent blend. This is a truly wonderful oil for keeping away anything that bites. The Lemon Eucalyptus, which is included in the blend, is insecticidal and is particularly useful for keeping away cockroaches, silverfish and other insects.
This blend also contains Citronella and Lemongrass.
How to apply: You can dilute with fractionated coconut oil and apply directly to the body. If you are out and about you can put it on your face, neck and any other exposed area. It is safe to use on children topically.
This oil can also be diffused to keep bugs away.
A terrific little oil, which costs €8.50 (wholesale price)
The summer season means we are hopefully exposed to lots of sunshine! That can mean sun burn unfortunately even on days when the sun doesn’t come out! We can get windburn from the sea so if we are out and about on a boat it is always good to keep sun cream on.
Lavender is an ideal oil to have handy for any area that gets too much sun. It is soothing and calming to the skin and can support a badly burned area from scarring. If there are any blisters in an area it is best to apply the oil to the soles of the feet, a wonderful fast way to get the effects of any of the oils.
As well as its’ skin benefits Lavender also supports the cardiovascular system, the nervous system and the emotional system.
How to apply: Can be applied topically, it is also a good oil to diffuse to instill calmness.
Can be diluted with Lemon and Peppermint to support allergies.

Peppermint has a wonderful cooling affect on a hot sunny day. It can be added to your water as a refreshing drink (doTerra’s Peppermint is safe to take internally).
How to apply: You can also put some on the back of your neck, chest or any other area if you are feeling hot and bothered!
You could also apply to the bottoms of the feet for a cooling effect.

Lemon is such a refreshing oil and has a wide variety of uses.
How to apply: Can be diluted with Lavender and Peppermint to support allergies.
It is great for immune system support and can also be added to water for a detox drink at anytime during the day and most especially in the morning.
If you are using Lemon on your body, because it is a citrus oil be careful not to go out directly into the sun for a couple of hours. Best to take internally in this regard or to apply to the soles of the feet if they are not going to be exposed to sunshine!
Diffusing Lemon has an uplifting effect and is good for focus.
It can also come in handy to clean surfaces such as airport trays if you are travelling with children and want to feed them but, are concerned about cleanliness.
