The doc is in! Read below to see what dōTERRA’s Dr. Hill, an industry expert on wellness and essential oils has to say about using essential oils to alleviate seasonal allergy discomfort, essential oils to clean, and weather they are safe or not to use on children.
Q How can I alleviate seasonal discomfort with essential oils?
A The dōTERRA TriEase Softgels contain equal parts of lemon, lavender, and peppermint essential oils, known for their ability to support clear breathing and a healthy inflammatory response when combined together. A drop of these oils can also be applied topically under the nose of diffused. Throughout my personal and professional experience, I’ve witnessed great success from this combination. In addition, supporting the digestive tract can ease discomfort during seasonal changes. PB Assist+ helps create an environment of friendly microflora in the gut that can both protect against seasonal and environmental elements and support acquired immunities.

Q Are essential oils effective cleaning agents? Which oils would you recommend?
A Essential oils have complex chemistries that give them diverse benefits. Many essential oils have powerful cleansing properties. They are highly effective yet nontoxic, making them ideal cleaning agents. There are many ways that essential oils can be integrated into your regular cleaning routine- use oils to clean kitchen counters, bathrooms, and other surfaces: diffuse the oils to purify the air: or use oils to cut grease and other tough stains. Citrus oils tend to be excellent cleaning agents and stain removers because of their high monoterpene content. I would also recommend Oregano, Purify Cleansing Blend, or any of the dōTERRA OnGuard Products to add to your everyday cleaning routine.
Q What is the safest and most beneficial way to use essential oils on children?
A Among the greatest attributes of essential oils is that their safety and benefits extend to all members of the family- no one is excluded, even young children and infants. Because of their potency, you will find that essential oils are capable of offering immediate benefits and relief to your child. For some reason, a very low dose is all that is needed to induce powerful therapeutic effects. Topical application is perhaps the most controlled method for administering essential oils to children because it allows for treatment of targeted concerns. Some oils can be sensitive to the skin and should be diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil before applying topically. Another effective mode of administration is diffusion, which is simple to integrate into your family’s health regimen. Consistent use of essential oils is a safe yet effective method for your family’s health.
