Fact: Essential oils are a great Ali for helping the body and mind to calm down, to regenerate and to shift state.  This is also why we in our social and essential oils group love the benefits of the ‘Nature’s Solutions Enrolment kit’, which helps one to facilitate ‘change’ in everything from transforming a home renovation, cleaning a room or two, decluttering and discarding unwanted items, which ends up with psychological benefits for all.  See my article on ‘decluttering’.

When looking over the many kit options available through Doterra, you can’t go past Nature’s Solutions kit.  Here’s my take (Annie Clark) on the contents of this kit,  how, why and when to use them: To make this article easier to use and reference I’ve broken it up into several parts - here goes

The ‘Nature’s Solutions Kit’ comprises of the following items:  15ml bottles of: singles: Lavender, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Frankincense, Purify, Tea Tree, Oregano, blends: AromaTouch, Digestzen, Lavender Peace, Easy Air, Citrus Bliss, Smart & Sassy, and On Guard.  

10ml bottles, well more like roller bottles of:  PastTense, and Clary Calm.

A 5ml bottle of Ice Blue.

Extras like:  Correct X, Ice Blue Rub, Fractionated Coconut Oil, Easy Air Vapour Stick, Petal Diffuser, Wooden box, On Guard Cleansing Toothpaste, On Guard Foaming Hand Wash (with 2 dispensers), On Guard Beadlets, Introductory Packet & Enrolment Packet (included stationary and details on Doterra, stickers for bottles and information pertinent to Doterra). 

The Essential Oils in the Kit:  

Digestzen – otherwise known as Digestive Blend.  Common uses - Bloating (generally caused by poor food combining), colitis (really uncomfortable condition and aggravation of the wall of the colon) constipation (generally not enough water or hydration in the food one is consuming can cause this, also stress), Cramps in the abdominal area, Crohn’s disease (more common than people know), Diarrhea, Food poisoning, Gastritis, Heartburn, Nausea, Parasites, Sinusitis.

Four best ways to use Digestzen; a few drops under the feet; a drop in an empty glass of water, add room temperature water then sip on this to ease discomfort; Apply a few drops to palm of your hand, add fractionated coconut oil, and massage in a clockwise direction around the abdominal area.  This relieves bloat and discomfort quickly.

The fourth way to use Digestzen is to diffuse it around the dining area, or in a room where someone has been unwell.  This helps significantly, due to the blends ingredients which are:   Ginger, Peppermint, Tarragon, Fennel, Caraway, Coriander, and Anise.

Purify - otherwise known as Cleansing Blend.  Single oils in this blend are - Lemon, Lime, Siberian Fir, White (Australian) Fir, Pine, Citronella, Tea Tree and Cilantro.  Awesome in the air purifier and diffused.  To clean with this one, use 5 drops to a damp rag, and use to wipe down surfaces.  Deodorant/Deodorizing:  add 5 drops to around 1 tablespoon of water in a small spray bottle and spray into the air, into garbage bins or on other surfaces needing deodorizing.  Purify blend is not one I would use on the skin, its really about cleaning and cleansing.

Tea Tree - Can be used for just about everything.  Primary uses for Tea Tree are - Acne, Allergies, Ancurysm, Athlete’s Foot, Bacterial Infections, Boils, Bronchitis, Candida, Canker Sores, Cavities, Chicken Pox, Cleansing, Cold Sores, Common Colds, Coughs, Cuts, Dermatitis, Eczema, Dry or Itchy Eyes, Ear Infections, Earache, Influenza, Fungal Infections, Gum Disease, Hepatitis, Herpes Simplex, Hives, stimulation of the Immune System, Infected Wounds, Infection, Inflammation, Jock Itch, Lice, MRSA, Mumps, Nail Infection, Pink Eye, Rashes, Ringworm, Rubella, Scabies, Shingles, Shock, Sore Throat, Staph, Infection, Sunburn, Thrush, Tonsillitis, Vaginal Infection, Varicose Ulcer, Viral Infections, Warts and most Wounds.                 I Told you that Tea Tree is a wonder!  Since I ended on ‘wounds’, here’s what you can do.  Wash wound with a mixture of 1 drop each of Lavender, Tea Tree, and Basil added to warm water.  Or mix 1-2 drops oil with 1 tablespoon of fractionated coconut oil, and massage on infected location, neck, arms, chest, or feet.

Oregano - Useful for warts - add 1-2 drops oregano to a few drops of fractionated coconut oil.  Apply 1-2 drops of the mixture on location daily.  Oregano is the parasite oil, it is antibacterial and antifungal.  Helps with colds, digestive problems, metabolic balance, obesity, viral and bacterial pneumonia.  Place a few drops of Oregano with fractionated coconut oil and rub under the foot about the middle of the foot.

You can do a 10-day parasite cleanse using a few drops of oregano and applying same time, 3 times a day for 10 days, for annoying or aggravating parasites.  You may need to do this for several months.  Oregano protects your immune system.  Useful for mouth ulcers.  Mix 2 drops of oregano with 10 drops of fractionated coconut oil.  Apply directly to ulcers or canker sores.  Caution can be quite harsh on the skin without a carrier oil!  Always use a carrier oil when applying to children and always start under the feet with this oil.

Aromatouch - also known as ‘Massage Blend’ - This is a blend that I use more for emotional pain.  Yes, you can use Aromatouch with physical discomfort, however, the aroma of Aromatouch lends itself more to relaxation and release of tension.  Aromatouch is part of the Aromatouch Relaxation Technique, which was developed by Dr. Hill, one of the founders and owners of Doterra.  Aromatouch blend is made up of the following essential oils - Basil, Grapefruit, Cypress, Marjoram, Lavender and Peppermint.  The massage blend may help promote an anti-inflammatory effect on soft tissue and enhance all aspects of massage.  I use Aromatouch as a soothing and refreshing blend on tired and sore muscles, and it diffuses nicely too.  Add a few drops to your massage oil, and rub on affected areas.

Frankincense - One of the most used essential oils in the world.  Frankincense is the king of the oils.  Frankincense helps your brain, your thinking and enhances all aspects of healing and wellness.  Frankincense helps with aging, allergies, bites (insect and snake), bronchitis, carbuncles, catarrh, colds, diarrhea, headaches, healing, hemorrhaging, herpes, high blood pressure, jaundice, laryngitis, meningitis, nervous conditions, prostate problems, pneumonia, respiratory problems, sciatic pain, sores, spiritual awareness, staph, strep, stress, syphilis, T.B., tension, tonsillitis, typhoid, and wounds.  It contains sesquiterpenes, enabling it to go beyond the blood-brain barrier.  It may also help oxygenate the pineal and pituitary glands.  It increases the activity of leukocytes, defending the body against infection.  Apply Frankincense to the scalp area, a few drops;  Apply directly to the skin;  Use as part of your beauty regime.  Enjoy the aroma, it’s magnificent!

Lavender Peace - also known as Serenity in the USA - Restful Blend - This relaxing blend contains essential oils that are often used to help calm and soothe feelings of stress, excitement, and anxiety in order to help the body have a restful sleep.  Sometimes your head may be full of busy thoughts and you cant wind down.  This blend helps to calm you down and promotes restful sleep.  Safe to use with little kids.  Individual oils in this - Lavender, Ho Wood, Cedarwood, Ylang Ylang, Sweet Marjoram, Roman Chamomile, Vanilla Bean Absolute, Vetiver, Hawaiian Sandalwood.  Add a few drops to your diffuser, apply directly to the skin, and savour the beautiful aroma.  One of my favourites.

Easy Air - also known as – Respiratory Blend – Breathe in USA - Many of the oils in this blend have been studied for their abilities to open and soothe the tissues of the respiratory system and also for their abilities to combat airborne bacteria and viruses that could be harmful to the system.  Individual oils in this blend are - Laurel Leaf (Bay), Peppermint, Eucalyptus radiata, Tea Tree, Lemon, Ravensara and Cardamom.  There are many benefits to using Easy air, diffusing it - a few drops in your device, apply a few drops on your chest if you are blocked up, and adding a little-fractionated coconut oil and rubbing on the chest for coughs and colds.  I like to diffuse the oil when I’m giving the house a clean, as the aroma freshens the room.  Easy Air goes well with Purify for cleaning.

Citrus Bliss - also known as Uplifting Blend - contains the following essential oils - Wild Orange Peel, Lemon Peel, Grapefruit Peel, Mandarin Peel, Bergamot Peel, Tangerine Peel, Clementine Peel essential oils, and Vanilla Bean Absolute.I use this blend mainly in the diffuser, it’s uplifting and refreshing and wakes you up.  The blend contains enough citrus and spice oils that help you with feelings of gloom, distress, and disinterest, helping to cheer and motivate the mind, body, and spirit.  You can also apply on wrists, back of the neck, over the heart area, or on the bottoms of the feet.

Lavender - Useful for burns and bites.  Useful for Calming, skin wounds, stress, anxiety and helping to quiet the mind.  Lavender should be in every first aid kit, as it’s vital for helping skin to repair.  A universal oil that has traditionally been known to balance the body and to work wherever there is a need.  We keep our Lavender by the stove, just in case someone scolds or burns themselves.  Apply a few drops with fractionated coconut oil and apply to affected area.

Lemon - Another essential oil, that should be in every first aid kit.  Apply a few drops to an empty glass, add water and sip on this to clean the blood.  This energizing oil is pressed from the rinds of lemons.  Lemon has an uplifting aroma that is often used to help balance emotions and provide energy.

Peppermint - This oil may help anger, arthritis, colic, depression, headaches, fatigue, food poisoning, hysteria, inflammation, liver problems, even cool down the body on a hot day.  There are many uses for peppermint, but perhaps the most beneficial is for relieving anxiety and reduces the discomfort of headaches.  For migraines, place your feet in around 5-6 litres of water to cover feet, add 2 drops of peppermint essential oil.  Drink a litre of water, and apply a few drops of peppermint on the back of the neck.  Rest, and allow restoration effects to happen.

Smart & Sassy - Individual oils in this blend are - Grapefruit, Lemon, Peppermint, Ginger and Cinnamon.  Top uses for Smart & Sassy - an appetite suppressant - add 4 drops to 1/3 cup water, drink quickly.  This blend is used to control hunger and to help limit excessive calorie intake.  Cellulite, Obesity, Overeating and Weight loss.  See my previous article on ‘What’s so Special About Smart & Sassy’.

Lemongrass - Often used for joint and muscle pain.  Lemongrass is cultivated in its native India, where the oil is steam-distilled from the plant’s grass leaves.  Use on reflex points on the feet.  To massage the inflamed area, combine 5-10 drops of Lemongrass with 1 tablespoon fractionated coconut oil.  Useful as an insect repellent - combine 5 drops of lavender, 5 drops Lemongrass and 3 drops of Peppermint to 1 drop of Thyme.  The mixture can be placed ‘neat’ on feet or added to 250ml water and misted using a spray bottle.  Lemongrass is wonderful in the diffuser, freshens up a room and is also a natural antidepressant.
