Why I Chose the doTERRA Home Essentials Kit

Why I Chose the doTERRA Home Essentials Kit - Hidden Valley Co

Why the Home Essentials Kit was my first choice when I began my essential oil journey. 

I initially became aware of doTERRA oils when I was looking for a food grade peppermint essential oil for my bliss balls recipe. At the time I went to a health and wellness seminar and someone saw my husband Dean had a bit of a cold and blocked sinuses. They looked him in the eye and said 'You need doTERRA Easy Air'.  They were so certain of this and said it with such conviction I went off to find some the next day! 

At that time I didn't know a lot about essential oils and I wasn't really sure I'd use a full kit. I chose to purchase a bottle of Peppermint and Easy Air at the retail price. As soon as I popped the lids I could smell the potency and purity and my curiosity was sparked to what else the oils could be used for. 

Not long after this I had the opportunity to attend an Introduction to Essential Oils class. My mind was literally blown! I learnt they could be like a natural tool kit to support my families health, wellness and happiness in so many ways. I learnt they can support the nervous system, respiratory system, digestive system, cardiovascular system and so much more. Not only could they do all this but they smelt AMAZING and I could add many of them to my cooking too to really jazz up the flavours. 

Knowing that I was going to need a full collection, the doTERRA Home Essentials Kit was the perfect option. 

Here are some of the reasons it appealed to me. 

  • 15ml bottles so great value and will last (apart from ice blue which is always 5ml).
  • Includes the petal diffuser to use oils aromatically.
  • Includes the top ten oils every home should have in order to support the respiratory, immune, digestive, cardiovascular and nervous systems.
  • It contains oils that can be used for sleep support and to help you find calm and relaxation - Lavender and Frankincense.
  • It has oils which can be used for DIY first aid - Lavender for bites and stings, Lavender and Tea tree for cuts and grazes.
  • It has oils you can use to add flavour to food and drinks - Peppermint and Lemon in your water, Lavender in baking like shortbread, muffins and cakes.
  • This kit is worth 235 PV - Product value so it always qualifies for specials and promotions when doTERRA are running them - in my case I received a free 5ml ice blue oil and the ice blue rub so over $100 of value for free.
  • It includes oils you can use fr DIY cleaning - OnGuard, Lavender, Lemon or Peppermint for a multipurpose spray, Tea Tree for bathrooms, Lemon for your fridge.
  • It includes oils for pest repelling - Insects hate Peppermint because of it's high menthol content.
  • You have lots of oils to get your DIY on. Onguard for hand wash, Lavender and Frankincense for body wash, Peppermint for a foot scrub and so on. 

So for all these reasons I knew this was the kit for me! My husband and I were given some birthday money and we chose to invest it in this kit and we have never regretted it.
