Let’s face it, essential oils go back in time, most of us have probably had a little bottle of tea tree oil, peppermint or lavender in our cupboards – something to grab perhaps when you managed to bruise yourself, had stomach trouble or just fancied making your house smell nice.

Well, there are many types of and uses for essential oils, but what are they? And how can you use them in your daily fitness and wellness routines?

What Are Essential Oils? – source: dōTERRA’s official site

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils provide plants with protection against environmental threats and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.

How Do I Use Essential Oils?

Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends in one of three methods:


Certain essential oils, when diffused, can be very stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing. Diffusing essential oils can also cleanse and purify the air of unwanted odours.


Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically.


Certain essential oils have a rich culinary history and can be used as dietary supplements for targeted wellness.

Essential oils are both exciting and promising when it comes to taking care of your own and your family’s health. Whether you’re applying essential oils topically, enjoying the aromatic benefits through diffusing, or taking essential oils internally, the positive effects of essential oils are boundless.

Here at BanditBee we believe there is a link between wellness and fitness, and we want to show you how dōTERRA essentials oils can be used for both!

We are delighted to have teamed up with Shehnaaz Latif, a dōTERRA wellness advocate, to offer our customers the opportunity to try samples of  dōTERRA (meaning ‘gift of the Earth’) essential oils which she has been using for herself and her family for over seven years.

Our two favourite oils for fitness and wellness  are Deep Blue ® soothing blend as a rub and the Wild Orange Oil.

THE DEEP BLUE ® soothing blend RUB

The Deep Blue ® Rub is a topical cream and we think this should be a staple part of your fitness wardrobe.  The Deep Blue ® rub combines oils that are known to comfort and cool joints and muscles – an absolutely must for those intense workouts.  Just rub a little into any affected areas and let the magic begin. Shehnaaz uses the rub before a workout, after a workout or both!

An information sheet is available here together with the cologne list. 

We are currently giving you an opportunity to try the Deep Blue ® rub for FREE when you buy our eco-bee leggings.  Only available while stocks lasts and no alternative available.   


dōTERRA say that this is one of their top selling oils, it’s an amazing invigorating oil – add a few drops to your lotions or body washes to feel amazing.  It has an uplifting boost which helps while studying or doing tedious tasks – even pushing yourself through those final minutes at the gym, just think about those last squats!  For topical use only. Shehnaaz often puts a drop of wild orange in her palm, rubs palms together and takes a few deep breaths in and out (avoiding eyes of course!)
