12 Days of Christmas doTERRA Contest – by Kimberley Milousis
About Lesson


Five Shower Things

On the fifth day of Christmas, dōTERRA gave to me:
Five shower things

There are a lot of good reasons to use natural bathing products! One of the biggest reasons is that the alternatives  often contain toxic ingredients that harm our health across time.

For example, chemical shampoos use toxic sulfates, like SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate), to create lather and foaming effects. Other toxic ingredients include silicones, dyes, and parabens. In the short term, these harsh chemicals strip the hair of its natural oils and disrupt the pH level. Over time, using products like these with harsh chemicals will negatively impact your health and will damage your hair and skin.

Instead of using toxic bathing products, why not use natural alternatives? Not only are they not harmful, but they actually support your body’s health while getting the job done.

I’m convinced that dōTERRA has some of the best natural bathing products on the market! Today, I’m giving away 5 of these amazing products: an all natural soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and body scrub.

Kimberley’s Journal Entry – DAY 5
What do I want for Christmas?

I can only wear a coat that warm for less than half the year, though. It would be better to have something I can use all year round. Perhaps a spa pass… or, better yet, my very own spa: A NORDIC SPA!

38 thoughts on “doTERRA Gave To Me…”

  1. I have had my eye on a DIY Lash Serum for a while.

    Empty Mascara tube
    Castor oil
    5 drops Lavender
    5 drops Rosemary
    5 drops Cedarwood
    Mix together and apply after washing your face. Be careful and do not let it get into your eyes.

  2. I’m currently using 3 doTERRA “DIY” products for my beauty regimes:

    1. Cuticle Oil
    5 drops Tea Tree in a 5ml roller, filled with FCO.
    (A colleague had had bought the Tea Tree roller earlier this year and I also told her that it is good for a cuticle oil. When I saw her last week, she immediately showed me her nails and said that her nails have never been this healthy and the damage caused by artificial nails is gone).

    2. Eye make-up remover
    5 drops Lavender and 5 drops Frankincense in a 10ml spray bottle and topped up with FCO. To use, spray onto a cotton swab and wipe over eyes (wonderful to remove waterproof mascara).

    3. Face & Eye Serum (instead of night cream).
    7 drops Copaiba
    5 drops Lavender
    5 drops Frankincense
    add to a 10ml glass roller bottle and topped up with JoJoba oil (I can’t use FCO on my face)
    The fine lines on my face are a lot less visible and skin blemishes also decreased significantly.

  3. My husband has Gout flare ups in his big toe so I have made a gout rollerball for him
    15 drops celery seed
    10 drops Marjoram
    10 drops Lemongrass
    8 drops Cypress
    7 drops deep blue

  4. I make my own hand soap, body wash etc. Recipe for my favourite foaming hand wash: 2 tbsp. castile soap, 1 tbsp. Carrier oil, 10 drops Citrus Bloom, fill dispenser with distilled water. Some times I substitute Spearmint and Tangerine for the Citrus Bloom.

  5. I recently had a skin irritation come up on the back of my knees.
    I am out of frankincense, but I blended what I had to help.

    Lavender
    Tea Tree Oil
    Helichrysum
    Lemongrass

    This mixture really took away the irritation that I was experiencing with the rash.
    I was really impressed with it!

  6. Hi – My favourite DIY recipe is the wood polish: Use half vinegar, half olive oil and ten drops of Lemon oil or Wild Orange. I used it on my kitchen cupboards a while back and then more recently on my wood floor. It makes an incredible difference!

  7. Recently I made “belly blend”
    Works so well for stomach issues, indigestion, constipation, even over eating – great for upcoming Holiday!!!

    In 10 ml roller, put 40 drops of Zendocrine and 40 drops of Wild Orange, top us with FCO

    Roll on your stomach and or abdomen for any needed relief

  8. I recently made an All Purpose Cleaner. The best part is my kids love spraying it and helping me clean and I don’t need to worry about them spraying chemicals all over!

    1/4 cup white vinegar
    1 3/4 cups water
    15 drops On Guard
    15 drops Lemon

  9. I love the Epsom salts with oils. 2 cup Epsom salts, 8 drops of favourite oil. I do lavender to calm, and add some real dried lavender to it. Love giving this as gifts as well.

  10. Would so love to get this one! Have actually converted my husband to the Spa Bar (Balance) in the shower. And looking forward to trying the shampoo and conditioner as stocking up would take so much less space than those bulky bottles.

  11. I make the DIY Body Wash frequently, and use it all the time. I usually use a wild orange or citrus oil as I find them invigorating in the shower, plus I seem to have a lot of wild orange for some reason 😂

    Would love to try these products, especially the shampoo and conditioner bars. I’m sceptical, but doTERRA has never done me wrong!!!!

    Ingredients
    8 ounce glass pump bottle
    ½ cup unscented castile soap
    4 tablespoons vegetable glycerin
    3 tablespoons FCO
    10 drops of your favorite essential oil

  12. I was on a real kick with making DIY’s, but I have to admit that although some were a real hit, I made a few that were definitely a bust in my books anyway. I love the all purpose cleaner, body wash, sleepy time linen spray, owie spray, all my roller bottles. Not so much a fan of the dishwasher pucks 😞, I was really hoping they would work well as I would have loved to replace the chemicals in the store bought ones, but my dishes just didn’t come out clean when I used them. I love when I can read about others success stories with DIY’s! I will be trying the wood polish now that Sharon has shared that it worked so well for her!

    1. I hear you – I tend to trust doTERRA for the best products and only make DIYs for the things doTERRA doesn’t make. So glad I don’t have to make my own sunscreen anymore!

  13. One recent DIY recipe that I made was my black and blue blend.
    Frankincense
    Lavender
    Cyress
    Helichrysm
    Copaiba
    Geranium
    10 drops of each in a 10 ml roller bottle and top up with fractionate coconut oil.

  14. I am going to try the cuticle oil recipe posted below – tis the season for your hands to dry

    1. Cuticle Oil
    5 drops Tea Tree in a 5ml roller, filled with FCO.
    (A colleague had had bought the Tea Tree roller earlier this year and I also told her that it is good for a cuticle oil. When I saw her last week, she immediately showed me her nails and said that her nails have never been this healthy and the damage caused by artificial nails is gone).

  15. There are a LOT of great recipes available to choose from, so it’s hard to find just one favourite, but due to the fact that I buy ‘Beach Wave” hair spray from the store (and don’t know all the contents that are in it, or feel 100% certain they are all safe) I would love to trade it out by making the Doterra version of it via the DIY recipe called “Beach Wave Salt Spray” and will be trying it out soon 🙂
