Essential oils can be valuable tools for every gardener. Whether you are trying to chase away garden pests, improve health and growth of the plants, or restore those gardener hands, essential oils can help. Here are some easy ways you can use essential oils to enhance your natural gardening experience.

Clean Greenhouse
I clean my greenhouse and garden tools with a mixture of 10 drops of Melaleuca in about 33 ounces of distilled water. We put this in a spray bottle and clean every inch of the greenhouse. -Maila Chan

Slug Away
Last year, I had the best luck getting rid of slugs using White Fir essential oil on my peppers. I have also used Peppermint oil for aphids and mystery bugs. Peppermint also works great for cooling your body off in the hot sun. I make after-sun spray with Lavender, Peppermint, and aloe juice. After a long day of working on my garden, Deep Blue® Rub comes in handy for the joints and muscles. I clean my hands with essential oil sugar scrub. I can’t tell you how much I love using dōTERRA in the garden. -Jamie Stitt

Essential Oils and Plant Companionship
I have been an organic farmer for 35 years. I have been using essential oils in my gardens since I have been with dōTERRA. I teach the organic portion of “The Master Gardener” class for my local area. My class this year will include the wonderful uses of dōTERRA essential oils in the garden—not only for pest management, but also for plant vigor and growth. I don’t use any chemicals in my garden at all and love sharing new and safe ways to enjoy gardening! I have substituted dōTERRA essential oils for companion plants—the results are amazing! For example, basil is a great companion plant for tomatoes. I use Basil essential oil in my watering can to give the plants a dose that can be absorbed through the root system, or I use it as a foliar spray. This helps to give the tomato plant great vigor for growth and plant resistance. -Kay Pittman

Bug Attack
My garden was being attacked by a beetle-like bug. It was eating away at everything, especially my favorite lily plant. I put a couple drops of TerraShield® in a spray bottle with water, sprayed the plants, and the beetle moved on! dōTERRA was part of my inspiration for my garden. -Kristen Willis

Ants No More
Last summer, I was attacked by ants. They had colonized near my strawberry patch. I panicked a little—I hate ants!—and dowsed the suckers in a solution of water and Peppermint. The next day, the ants were completely gone! I was impressed by how fast it worked. Plus, even though I did go a little overboard (a few sprays would have worked), I know Peppermint is safe for my strawberries and me. -Elizabeth Sperling

Fact:
Vinegar makes an effective natural herbicide and weed killer.

Tip:
Apply Lavender to soothe irritated skin associated with certain plants or bugs.

Wellness/Recovery

Overall wellness involves mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health and is the result of deliberate effort. We see wellness an approach to healthcare that emphasizes preventing illness and prolonging life, as well as recovering from injury, disorders and diseases.

Wellness is all about proactively taking care of yourself. It’s what you eat, who you surround yourself with, your mindset and attitude, plus how you behave in your life and work.

Because our minds, bodies and spirits are connected, we believe in treating the person as a whole.  We know that no single approach is the right one for every individual, and so I have been trained in a range of modalities.  We take a holistic approach to our encounters with each individual.   Our human potential and resilience is amazing and we use different approaches depending on your preferences.  To begin your journey  Click Here.
