Essential Oil Health Recipes

Updated: May 18, 2020

All of our favorite EO recipes for Health will be found here! I'll be adding more along the way but in the meantime you can find us at Undecorated Wellness. Please know that I only suggest using doTerra for these recipes as other brands can be filled with chemicals and synthetics. It is also important to note that you should only ingest doTerras oils if they have a supplement label on the bottle. Check the chart below if you need help with dilution ratios by age. Start with the minimum number of drops for the correct age group and adjust as needed for effectiveness.


The minute anyone in our house shows signs of illness, FLOOM is our go-to. Personally I like to make a veggie capsule and take it internally for a mega boost. To make an internal FLOOM bomb get your Veggie Caps for $4 here, add one drop of each oil. Take immediately. Veggie Caps are designed to dissolve quickly and aren't meant to be made ahead of time. Be careful not to get oil on the outside of the capsule or it will start to dissolve. Glass droppers are always helpful.


Frankincense, Lemon, Oregano, On Guard & Melaleuca (Tea Tree)

To make a FLOOM adult roller add 10 drops of each oil to a 10 ml roller bottle and top with a carrier oil.

To make a FLOOM kids roller add 3-5 drops of each oil depending on their age to a 10 ml roller bottle and top with carrier oil.

Roll up and down the spine every hour or so until you're sure you've kicked it! Works like a dream!


For cuts, bruises, bumps, rashes... any skin irritations, this is our go to.


Lavender, Frankincense, Tea Tree. Those are enough but if you have Yarrow Pom or Helichrysum those would be great additions.

In a 2 oz spray bottle add 15 drops Lavender, Tea Tree & Frankincense. (5 drops of the other's I mentioned.) Top off with fractionated coconut oil or the carrier of your choice. Shake it up and spray it on the problem area. Repeat as necessary.


Nontoxic bug spray that is safe for the whole family, cats & dogs included! We love dōTERRA’s TerraShield blend, you can find it in spray form or you can grab a bottle and make your own spray. We add Geranium to our spray because it’s been proven to be more effective repelling ticks than DEET! The TerraShield blend also has Lemon Eucalyptus which has been proven to be more effective repelling mosquitoes than DEET! I made ours in dōTERRA’s continuous mist spray bottle, it’s a 10 oz bottle, you can adjust your recipe according to your bottle size.


10 oz bottle

40 drops TerraShield

40 drops Geranium

2 tbsp Witch Hazel (to help the water & oil combine)

Top with water

Shake before use!

🐾 Add 5 drops of Rosemary to repel fleas if you are using this on your pets. Always avoid your pets faces when using oils. Spray or apply to your hands and rub on the fur, behind the ears, paws, legs and stomach.


CorrectX is a natural multi-purpose ointment that fixes everything from cuts, bumps, rashes & chapped lips to bug bites! A blend of lavender, tea tree, frankincense, helichrysum and cedarwood naturally soothes and disinfects skin with out irritating it.

Lavender is a no brainer for anything skin related- it stops itching, irritation and swelling from errythang.

Tea Tree kills all the bacteria those little buggers bring with them.

Purify- one you wouldn’t think of but is absolute magic for mosquito bites! We never forget this when we go camping. Just take the lid off, tap the top and tap those bites. Guarantee you they disappear!!


These options are pretty general for pain and recommended for headaches, migraines, joint & nerve pain, arthritis, carpal tunnel, restless legs, cramps, growing pains and poor circulation just to name a few!

Deep Blue Rub is the best muscle rub I’ve ever used. A little goes a long way!

PastTense is a potent oil blend, hot and cold at the same time. It isn’t diluted so if you find it to be too strong dump half of it in an empty roller and top them off with a carrier.

AromaTouch is a massage blend made specifically for pain. You can make a roller or just drop a few drops in your palm and add a carrier for a quick massage.

Copaiba is a game changer for inflammation. I like to add a drop to my deep blue rub or layer it over the other options above. It will enhance the benefits of the other oils and help drive them deeper into your tissue.

If you have chronic pain or would rather ingest these benefits to get right to the problem area you can find Deep Blue Capsules & Copaiba Softgels on dōTERRA’s website pre-made as well.


Diffuse 2 drops each Lavender, Wild Orange, Balance & Vetiver or make a roller with up to 10 drops of each for an adult or swipe for my roller dilution chart for kids. Top with carrier oil, roll on the spine or bottoms of feet and take a few deep breaths!


In a 10 ml Roller add- 3 drops Oregano, 3 drops Frankincense, 5 drops Lemon, 5 drops Peppermint. Top with carrier oil, roll on at least twice a day.


Snoring, coughing, congestion... these oils are fabulous for our respiratory system.

Copaiba, Siberian Fir, Cedarwood, & Breathe

You can add two drops of each to your diffuser or make a roller for topical use. For an adult I would start with 5 drops of each and fill with a carrier oil. If you need to add more go for it.

*The Breathe Roller is also great for snoring and respiratory issues.

Skin Relief Blend

In a 2 oz bottle combine 20-25 drops each Yarrow|Pom, Tumeric, Copaiba & Roman Chamomile. Blue Tansy can be used in place of yarrow|pom if you don’t have it. Fill bottle with carrier oil and spray multiple times through the day or as often as needed.

*Topical solutions are great for relief but they don’t get to the heart of the problem. Our skin is our largest organ, flare ups are usually a last ditch effort for our body to remove toxins or tell us something is off inside the gut. dōTERRA has a product called GX Assist which is recommended to be taken for 10 days in a row to clean out the gut and any toxins that may be trapped there. Follow it up with 10 days of PB Assist to reestablish healthly gut flora!


Diffuser Blend-

3 drops Lavender, 3 drops Peppermint, 2 drops Rosemary

Roller- Roll PastTense around your hairline and the back of your neck. It’s strong and comes undiluted so feel free to split it into 2 rollers and top them both off with a carrier oil if its too strong.

*Oil Hack- take the lid off of your bottle of Frankincense. Put your thumb over the top and turn it upside down. Now take that tiny bit of frank and push it up against the roof of your mouth for a FULL 30 seconds, rock your thumb around a little. If you have a migraine take a drop or two of frank under your tongue.


COPAIBA- a drop or two under the tongue may help calm your nervous system and racing mind. When that panic starts creeping in this is the oil I go to first.

ADAPTIV- this blend was formulated to help us with our stress response. Used daily and in times of stress or anxiety it may help regulate your stress response. This blend is comforting, uplifting, calming and stress relieving. Diffuse it or apply it to your elbow creases and pulse points behind your ears daily.

BALANCE- diffuse to balance emotions. Use on the bottom of your feet to start and end your day with grounded emotions. This blend creates a calm and tranquil atmosphere that is a part of our daily routine.

MAGNOLIA- little known fact- magnolia is 71% linalool compared to lavenders 30%! Linalool is the chemical constitute in some oils that calm and relax our bodies and central nervous systems. Roll it on before bed if you are an anxious sleeper and in times of high stress and anxiety.

CONSOLE- this blend counteracts negative emotions of grief, sadness, anger and hopelessness and promotes feelings of comfort and hope! We leaned on this a lot over the last few months.

*These are all topical and diffuser options. The best products doTERRA offers for stress and anxiety are the Adaptive Capsules and Copaiba softgels. Taken Daily the Adaptiv Capsules are showing promising results in clinical studies. The Copaiba softgels are calming for the nervous and cardiovascular systems.


Add 15 drops Peppermint, 10 drops Frankincense, 10 drops Tea Tree, & 15 drops Lavender to a 4 oz spray bottle and top with water for a nice mist or you can use a carrier oil instead to really condition your skin.

*Yarrow|Pom & Yarrow|Pom Serum are both incredible on their own for sunburns as well.
