Win a doTerra oils intro kit!

It's no secret that I have an aversion to trendy things. It's also no secret that I try to live as green as possible. Essential oils are huge right now, and while people are split on whether it is just another trend, I'm all for their use. Trend or not, they're legit and I'm on board. I've been building a modest collection of oils for the past few years and my google search history would certainly make skeptics raise their eyebrows:

ear infection essential oils
muscle pain essential oils
decongestant essential oils

It's wonderful that information on the best oils to use for any ailment is so quickly and easily accessible, and I love that I always have at least one of the recommended oils on hand. I've mentioned in multiple posts that my go-to bedtime oil arrangement is a mix of lemon/lavender/peppermint in a diffuser. The three together are an allergy-fighting powerhouse, and separately, they all have amazing properties. At least one of them was mentioned as a treatment for each search above.



The people at doTERRA are no dummies. While I'm still researching the best oil for every little thing, they already knew what I've discovered—lavender, lemon, and peppermint oils are must-haves for oil users and have nearly infinite uses. In fact, their intro kit, put together with beginner users in mind, contains just three oils and I'm pretty sure by now that you can guess which three.

Did I own these oils before I received my intro kit from doTERRA? Yes, but oh my goodness. I've heard lots about this brand and I've been dying to get my hands on some. I wasn't convinced until trying for myself that not all oils are created equally. I alternated brands for the first few days after receiving my intro kit for comparison, and now I use the doTERRA as much as possible. I can literally feel the difference—I gave Sean a back massage today using the lavender and peppermint oils for his sore muscles, and as I type this, my hands are still tingling from the coolness and they smell amazing!

I've definitely been spoiled now that I've experienced the difference for myself. God help me and my wallet as I expand my collection!



Onto the great news—Olive You Whole provided me with this kit for review, and is also giving one reader the same intro kit which includes 5 mL lavender, lemon, and peppermint essential oils with use recommendations for each (you can apply oils, diffuse them, or in the case of high-quality oils like doTERRA, even ingest them!). Whether you're a first time user who is curious or a veteran looking to compare quality for yourself, good luck! Enter for your chance below.

Looking to expand your collection and even have the opportunity for income? Take a look at doTERRA's membership options and their amazing kits, like the Family Physician's kit:


  • Go to mydoterra.com/oliveyouwhole
  • In the menu click "join and save"
  • Choose your language and country
  • Choose Wholesale Account
  • Enter your info and either choose the Family Physician's Kit OR
  • Choose Introductory Kit ($35 wholesale membership fee that gets you 25% off!) and add oils to your cart by searching for each individual oil in the search box.
  • Then checkout and you're done! :)

    1. Lemon is perfect for cleaning, and in my experience, the one oil that demonstrates the differences in oil quality by brand. I have other bottles that don't even smell like lemon which is sad, but doTERRA's lemon is by far the best I've tried.
