September is one of my favorite months of the year. And, there's several reasons why!
- It's my birthday month! I'm a Virgo baby!
- The weather. I love the transition from sweaty summer to cool fall.
- The annual dōTERRA Convention is held in Salt Lake City!
I got to fly up to Salt Lake for a week of fun with some of my Happy Healthy Community friends to experience the dōTERRA One Convention! This is my second time attending dōTERRA's annual Convention and, needless to say, this time did NOT disappoint. With over 30,000 attendees, science forums, special keynote speakers, musical performances (Colbie Callait, anyone?), and a massive product showcase, it was pretty rad. If you get the chance to go to dōTERRA's Convention, DO IT!
Since my blog has just been recently approved as a dōTERRA-certified site (meaning I'm keeping things FDA-compliant and can use their trademark), I thought I'd celebrate my venture back into the blogging world with this post about what I was most excited about coming out of the dōTERRA Convention: the new essential oils and products! Read on!
I saved my TOP favorite for last. 😉
1. Petitigrain Essential Oil
Meet Petitgrain essential oil! Petitgrain is sourced from Paraguay through dōTERRA's Co-Impact Sourcing initiative. I currently have a brother who is a missionary in Paraguay 🇵🇾 When he gets home in November, I'm going to gift him a bottle so he can always have a little piece of Paraguay to carry with him.
Petitgrain is sourced from the leaves of the Bitter Orange tree, and has a very fresh, slightly herbaceous scent. It has a very similar chemical profile to Lavender, earning it the nickname "manly Lavender."
Emerging scientific evidence supports Petigrain’s use to help calm the nervous system, help ease feelings of tension, and promote restful sleep - which is why it is now part of my stress management regimen.*
Some of my favorite oils to blend and pair with Petitgrain: Vetiver, Lavender, Bergamot, and Balance Grounding Blend.
2. Spikenard Essential Oil
Spikenard essential oil is known for its use during biblical times to anoint and honor. Spikenard is a low-growing flowering plant that grows in the Himalayan mountains. This precious essential oil is made available through Co-Impact Sourcing initiatives helps stimulate the economy in one of the poorest regions of Nepal.
Spikenard has a very woodsy, slightly sweet scent, and has historically been used in Ayurvedic practices, for uplifting mood, and promoting relaxation.
Because of its chemically diverse profile, Spikenard has a variety of uses for emotional and physical support! Definitely a great essential oil to add to your arsenal.
3. Serenity Restful Complex
dōTERRA's Serenity Restful Complex is the perfect addition to your daily self care regimen. A lot of people struggle with sleep, and this is a fantastic, all-natural option for sleep support.
💤 This little gelcap is perfect for supporting restful sleep and calming anxious feelings. *
💤 It's all-natural! Ingredients include Lavender, L-Theanine, Chamomile, Passionflower, and Lemon Balm.
💤 Lavender has been shown to help calm the nervous system when taken internally.*
💤 L-Theanine, an amino acid found in green tea, promotes relaxation without drowsiness. *
💤 This complex was subjected to a double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial to support efficacy.
It's been a game-changer for me! I now take 1-2 before bed and lights out. ✌️️😴
4. dōTERRA Spa Product Line
The new dōTERRA Spa line is perfect for taking your self-care up a notch. Made with natural, nontoxic ingredients and infused with CPTG essential oils, it's a great way to treat yourself while relieving your stress load.
Products in the dōTERRA Spa line include:
- Moisturizing Bath Bar
- Refreshing Body Wash
- Exfoliating Body Scrub
- Detoxifying Mud Mask
- Replenishing Body Butter
- Reformulated Hand & Body Lotion
- Citrus Bliss Hand Lotion

- Lip Balm (comes in three flavors: Peppermint & Wild Orange, Tropical, and Herbal)
5. The Emotional Aromatherapy Touch Kit
And, last (but not least!) dōTERRA's Emotional Aromatherapy Touch Kit! These Emotional Aromatherapy rollers are seriously an answer to my prayers. Emotional aromatherapy is such a big part of my personal wellness journey and also what I share as a health coach, and so I was super excited when these rollerballs were announced!
All of the blends from dōTERRA's Emotional Aromatherapy Kit (released last year) are now available in 9mL roller bottles - perfectly diluted with fractionated coconut oil for topical use and capped off with dōTERRA's new leak-resistant stainless steel rollerball tops.
This kit is perfect when you need emotional support while on the go. I personally carry the kit with me in my backpack.
You can also get some pretty cool cases and wallets to tote them around in, as well as special gemstone rollerballs with gemstones specifically chosen to support the oil blends in this kit from my friends at eos.life! Pretty cool!
WHY DŌTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS?
There's something I like to call the dōTERRA difference.
More than any other essential oil company I've come across, dōTERRA goes out of their way to provide the most pure, potent, and therapeutically beneficial essential oils.
dōTERRA employs a self-imposed standard for purity called Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade - all of dōTERRA's essential oils must meet this standard to be sold and used. In order to be labeled Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (or CPTG for short), a batch of essential oil must pass eight different tests - read up more on the process here!
Because of this testing process, you can be confident that dōTERRA essential oils are safe, pure, and effective to use in the ways described above and why I choose to use them in my integrative health coaching practice.
Each essential bottle also includes a Quality ID # that you can use to track where your oil was sourced and view the GC/MS test results for the batch. How cool is that?!
From my experience, dōTERRA essential oils are the best out there.
BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE MY WORD FOR IT.
