Oops! I was wrong about something and I want to make sure I don’t mess anyone up. A few months back, I got the 125 PV Free Product of the Month in both the LRP orders I did. Thus,I assumed you can get it with every order that qualifies. Well, that was a mistake (a blessed one that gave me extra Balance). You can only receive it once per month.

This month I had a big order and instead of going for the 200 PV free product, I decided to divide my order in half and get the Free OnGuard twice. Today, I got confirmation that my 2nd LRP was on the way, but I didn’t see any OnGuard on the order. I quickly called up the nice folks at dōTERRA and was informed that you can only get the Free Product of the Month once. But seeing how they goofed in the past and I would’ve qualified for the free Summer Sensation Kit if I would have had just one big order, she kindly offered to add the Summer Sensation kit onto my order.

I’m happy now. But I did want to be sure I shared this information with all of you. Lesson learned–keep your big order together. And you can always order another LRP later in the month when you need to, just don’t expect the free stuff again.


Want to know why you don’t want your Loyalty Rewards Program order (LRP)  to ship out on the FIRST day of the month? You’ll miss the announcement from dōTERRA on the Free Product of the Month for orders of 125 PV.

I used to do it too. And I know what you’re thinking. I couldn’t wait to get my next order of essential oils, so I set up my Loyalty Rewards Order to ship out on the very first day of the month.

The better thing to do with your LRP order is to set it to ship on the 2nd or the 3rd of the month (but for sure before the 15th). That allows you the chance to find out about all the monthly specials. And then you can adjust your order accordingly. Or not. The choice is yours, but at least you’re fully informed and don’t feel like you’re missing out on anything. I don’t know about you, but I hate missing a good deal.

In addition to the Free Product of the Month for orders of 125 PV, dōTERRA  often has specials for orders of 200 PV or more. So it’s totally worth waiting a day to see what the monthly specials are. I will always post them here as SOON as I find out (usually the last day of the previous month), but you can also get emails directly from dōTERRA .

So take a minute and log in to your LRP and make sure the date is set later than the 1st. You’ll be glad you did!

Here are all the specials for August.


FREE 5 ml bottle of On Guard

Receive a free 5 ml bottle of On Guard with any 125 PV order that is shipped before the 15th of August. This is a great deal to stock up before cold and flu season, as well as get prepared for those Back-to-School germs. If your Loyalty Rewards Order hasn’t shipped, you can log in and make sure your order reaches 125 PV so you can get this immune boosting freebie. You can even place another qualifying LRP before the 15th to receive this deal.

On Guard is dōTERRA®’s unique, proprietary blend formulated to support healthy immune function. Wild orange essential oil, combined with clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary offer a fragrant, natural and effective alternative to synthetic options for immune support. On Guard, with its unique aroma, is one of our most versatile blends. It is also safe to use on counter tops, as a non-toxic way to cleanse surfaces, or to purify the atmosphere by diffusing. On Guard is superb for eliminating and controlling pathogens due to the potency of its constituents. For aromatic, topical, or dietary use.

doTERRA August 2012 special
10% off Clear Skin in August

Skin Essential Oil Topical Blend is a blend of CPTG® essential oils; rosewood, eucalyptus globulus, geranium, lemongrass, melaleuca, combined with black cumin seed oil. This non-drying blend dispenses easily from a 10ml roll on for easy application to troubled skin spots. It’s the perfect companion product to Clear Skin Foaming Face Wash. This product is terrific for your teens and their blemishes.



Extended through August 31st for 200 PV orders

This is such a fun bonus….I can’t believe they’ve extended it another month! While supplies last, any order of 200 PV or more receives this 4 pack of 5 ml bottles containing Black Pepper, Basil, Cilantro and Tangerine.  While these can all be used in lots of summertime recipes, they have their own therapeutic uses too. You can click through to learn more about using BasilBlack Pepper, and Cilantro.  Tangerine isn’t listed, but can be used like other citrus oils for cleansing and is just a very uplifting scent. Also, Basil is the only one you can even get from dōTERRA right now, the others are new and not available on a regular basis. So it’s a great opportunity to get over $80 retail in product. 






Taking the lid off your little brown bottles will be much easier if they are right where you’ll need them

Keep your Lemon Essential Oil in the kitchen near your drinking glasses to remind you to add a couple drops to your water glass. Lemon oil is a great detoxifier. Dr. Hill, doTERRA’s chief medical advisor,  recommends using daily in your water glass (don’t use in plastic cups or water bottles). It’s refreshing and invigorating too.

Lemon oil is also amazing at removing sticky residue like gum, price tags, wood stain, oil and grease spots.



So you forgot the sunscreen? Or maybe you didn’t want all those chemicals on your skin in the first place. Here’s some solutions for soothing a sunburn:

Spray on relief

I always have a blend of fractionated coconut oil, Melaleuca and Lavendar in a glass spray bottle to spray on cuts and skin irritations. We call it “Ouchie Spray,” but it’s also terrific for sunburns. Just spray on and gently rub into skin. You could replace the Melaleuca with Peppermint to provide some cooling action for hot skin. I get my glass bottles really inexpensively from Aroma Tools. The blue are my absolute favorite!


Ouchie Spray

2 ounces Fractionated Coconut Oil

25 drops Lavender

25 drops Melaleuca



Helichrysum is amazing for preventing sunburn. Add 60 drops Helichrysum and 60 drops of Lavender to a 2 ounce spray bottle and fill the rest with FCO. Mist on the skin and rub in evenly. You could even use dōTERRA’s Hand & Body lotion, add Helichrysum to it and rub into skin. Reapply as necessary.


A little caution with citrus oils

Be careful when using any citrus oil on your skin (Lemon, Lime, Wild Orange, Grapefruit, Bergamot) as it makes skin extra sensitive to the sun for 12 hours, even more like 72 with Bergamot.
