This doTERRA TerraShield Essential Oil Outdoor Blend Review looks at one of the most effective essential oil blends to keep bugs and insects away, soothe bites, and give you a barrier against all these creepy crawlies.
Bugs and insects seem to like certain people more than others. I’m one of those people they seem to like trying to bite! I have used lavender and tea tree oil to repel them before, but this proprietary blend from doTERRA does everything and more all in one bottle.
doTERRA have a range of blends developed by their team of aromatherapists to address certain wellness and health issues. They contain several oils to make a much more effective blend.
If you’re looking for essential oil recipes to protect you against mother nature by repelling bugs, soothing bites, and reducing itching – this is the blend for you. It has a pungent, floral, and herbaceous aroma.

Here are three methods of suggested use:
Diffusion – Add a couple of drops to your diffuser and let the diffuser do the work dispersing a fine mist into the air. There are lots of benefits to diffusing and it’s one of the easiest ways to enjoy TerraShield.
Topical Use – Always mix a couple of drops with a good carrier oil (like doTERRA’s fractionated coconut oil) before applying topically. A great way to take advantage of this oils restful properties.
Aromatic Bath – Being a blend with a relaxing and calming aroma there are few experiences more relaxing than taking a long hot soak and adding a few drops of TerraShield to the water. If you have been bitten, this is a good way to provide some relief and treat the bites.
