How to Use doTERRA Balance

This oil blend is safe to use on the skin, but you should always try it first before applying to sensitive areas. We recommend putting some of the oil on the feet to see how your skin and body respond. If there is an unpleasant reaction, you should probably steer clear of the oil! However, relatively few people have poor reactions to the Balance blend. You can apply it neat or dilute it with your favorite carrier oil. We recommend checking out our Guide to Diluting Essential Oils to learn more.

You can also diffuse the Balance blend, which we are doing constantly. We like to diffuse it in the afternoon and evening, especially after a long day. The blend can help bring us back to the present moment and settle down. The essential oils make this an ideal blend to use to calm down, focus, and get some rest.

You can also use some Balance in your bath. This is one of our favorite ways to utilize the powerful properties of this oil. Make sure first that you’re not sensitive to this oil, and drop a single drop into your bath water. This can help create a calming and grounding aroma, and the essential oils are great for the skin as well!
