Ways to Use Breathe

1.   Make a Breathe Rollerball

You can apply breathe essential oil to your chest to help clear you airways. I like to make my life as easy a possible, so if you make up a roller bottle in advance you can easily grab it when needed and apply.

To make the rollerball add 15 drops breathe essential oil and top with fractionated coconut oil.

Children will need a higher dilution ration. You can check out some dilution guidelines on our safety post.


2.   Make a Seasonal Blend

You can either diffuse or apply a seasonal blend topically to help with any effects you may be feeling. This blend will help to open airways and diffusing particularly will help to minimise effects of seasonal threats.

To make this blend add 2 drops Lavender, 2 drops Lemon, 2 drops Peppermint and 1 drop Breathe to a diffuser and top with water.


3.   Sleep Well with Breathe

This blend is not only great for your respiratory system but its properties can also help with a good nights sleep.

The fresh, minty aroma will help you to remain calm and enjoy a good nights rest.

Diffuse on its own or add another oil such as lavender or serenity to take you to the land of nod.


4. Exercise with Breathe Respiratory Blend

This oil is so good at opening your airways and is the perfect addition to your exercise routine.

If you are going for a run or doing any intense exercise you will know breathing is a big part or how far you can go.

Try applying this blend topically to your chest before exercise to keep your airways open and clear whilst exercising.

Again, make sure to always dilute before using or create a rollerball to keep in your gym bag.


5. Make your own Breathe Shower Melts

These shower melts are super easy to make and a great way of clearing any congestion you may have.

Simply drop one onto the bottom of the shower and allow the waer and steam to evaporate the oils whilst you inhale deeply.

To make these follow the instructions below:


1 cup baking soda
15–20 drops doTERRA Breathe Respiratory Blend
⅓ cup water


Combine baking soda and water in a small bowl. Mix well.

Add 15–20 drops (depending on desired potency) to mixture. Stir until well combined.

Pack mixture into small silicone molds and allow to set overnight.

To use, place a tab in your shower away from the direct flow of water and enjoy the cooling effect of the doTERRA Breathe blend.

Store in an airtight container. This will help prevent the volatile compounds of the oil from evaporating into the air. Use within one week.
