Using Essential Oils For Detoxing and Cleansing

By Jo Hunt
Friday, January 18, 2019

Let’s start with cleansing or detoxification!

“We are much better off taking a daily approach, and being supportive, to the cleansing organs that are designed to detoxify our bodies.”  Dr. David K. Hill – doTERRA founder.

In the dictionary Cleansing means to make clean – so the route of cleansing is to clear the bowels, clean the blood, flush out toxins that are in the body, it can rest the organs so a great way to re-boot the body so that the body can work in a more efficient and effective way.

It is recommended that you do a cleanse at least 1 time per year.

There are a number of cleanses and products associated with healthy detoxification of the body and essential oils.  Dr. David Hill in September of 2010 gave a presentation, with the introduction of cleansing protocols and how they work in the body. 

Nutritional Cleanses

A daily, gentle detoxification to provide support to the body organs that provide natural detoxification.

Zendocrine

doTERRA Zendocrine

Zendocrine is a detoxifying supplement that supports healthy cleansing and filtering functions of the liver, kidneys, colon, lungs, and skin as well as supporting normal self-detoxification functions of the cleansing organs. You would take this everyday for one month and then again in a few months as a quarterly cleanse. 

  •  Zendocrine: 2 tablets daily, 1 morning, 1 evening

 

Lemon Essential OilLemon liver detoxification

For some this is a part of their life for increased energy, emotional stability, and pain.

  • 1 tablespoon of organic lemon juice
  • 1 drop each of lemon and peppermint essential oils
  • 1 drop coriander essential oils if necessary for addictions
  • 2-4 ounces of purified water
  • Daily, drink first thing in the morning
  • Time period: indefinite

Slim and Sassy Essential Oil Blend Slim & Sassy (Smart)

Dr. David Hill suggests the blend Slim & Sassy as a metabolic blend can help the body eliminate apidose cells the body has formed to encapulate dangerous toxins in the body.

  • 1-2 drops Slim & Sassy per 8 ounces of water
  • 2 to 4 glasses per day
  • Time period: indefinite

AromaTouch Technique

The periodic AromaTouch Technique has a cleansing benefit to the body.  See this technique described in detail on other pages of this website.

  • daily, weekly, monthly depending on the health needs of the individual

Detox Baths

This is soaking the body in a hot bath with Epson Salts and essential oils.  Be sure and mix the oils well before entering the bath.  Couple with lots of liquids.

  • 1 cup Epsom Salts
  • 4 drops each lavender, geranium, lemongrass essential oils
  • 1 tub of hot water
  • soak 30 minutes or a long as comfortable
  • daily, weekly, monthly depending on the health needs of the individual
  • couple with lots of liquid (water, water with lemon or Slim & Sassy, etc.)

GX Assist  GI Cleansing FormulaGX  Assist

GX Assist is a combination of caprylic acid and oregano, melaleuca, lemon, lemongrass, peppermint, and thyme essentials oils that help support a healthy digestive tract by creating an unfriendly environment for potentially harmful pathogens that can disrupt digestive immunities and cause digestive upset.

You would take this for 10 days each month to help support the digestive track. It is recommended to follow this with PB Assist for 5 days.

GX Assist is an aggressive formula so depending on how aggressive you want to be, you may or may not want to do GX Assist and Zendocrine at the same time. There is no harm in doing them at the same time however.

PB Assist will replace the flora in the digestive system and will help the gut with new healthy good bacteria.

Candida Cleanse

This is a cleanse similar to the GX Assist but using individual essential oils.  It also is highly effective against Candida or yeast infections that affect many.

  • 5 drops each melaleuca, lemon, and oregano essential oils in a vegetable capsule.
  • 2 capsules per day for 2 weeks, rest 2 weeks, then 1 capsule per day for 2 weeks
  • Follow with a probiotic

So if this is you – you may need to do a cleanse -  I am SO sick of feeling crappy and I know that it’s my own fault. I feel sluggish and bloated because frankly I have been paying NO attention to the foods I am eating or what time I’m eating. I’ve been eating anything and everything here and there with my head in the clouds and a very rushed sandwich in my hand. This madness is coming to a stop. I am in my 40s and have cleansed before so it’s not new to me but it is still a bit intimidating. I know that the only way to have success with any kind of healthy eating in my life is to pre-plan and prep foods. I am keeping it real and only planning 3 days ahead.  So I’ve gone and gotten 3 days worth of food and I’m ready to go with my doTERRA cleanse.
