ESSENTIAL OILS 101

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. Essential oils are super fragrant, fast acting compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, protect plants and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices. ​

Not all essential oils are created equal. After searching and sampling many different brands of essential oils, I found the company who far exceeds all others in every way.

 

doTERRA carefully selects artisans from around the world to help produce over 100 different essential oils through steam distillation or expression. Partnering with professionals who know how important the production process is, who will never cut corners, and who are committed to producing quality essential oils, allows doTERRA to continually provide customers with products that are unique, pure and safe. 

doTERRA produces Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Oils, the highest grade of purity and potency in the world. So pure, in fact, that most of doTERRA's essential oils are safe and extremely beneficial to take internally. 

The best way to get started with essential oils is to start using them! Consider purchasing a STARTER KIT to get oils in your home, then start experimenting with your oils to see which ones you like the best. Then continue to purchase the oils you love with your free wholesale membership (comes with every starter kit!). You can earn points monthly through the Loyalty Rewards Program and get 30% back. Use these free points to buy items you usually purchase at the grocery store!

 

It's also a good idea to get some literature to guide you while using, we recommend The Essential Life book. And take advantage of our free online classes! We'd love to help you get started! 

Essential oils can be used a variety of ways! 

Aromatically- Smell is arguable your strongest sense and the fastest way to impact your mood. Put a few drops in the palms of your hands, rub them together and inhale or put a few drops of your favorite oil in a diffuser. The small oil particles will communicate with your olfactory nerves, which chat with the emotion center in your midbrain and initiate a reaction. It might be to calm down, perk up, get happy or get moving! Whatever you need, there's an oil for that. 

Topically- Essential oils can be applied directly to your skin with proper dilution. Applying oils this way can help alleviate soreness, tension, join discomfort and many different skin irritations or ailments. Plus you'll smell great!

Internally- doTERRA's Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade oils are not only safe to take internally, but are very beneficial for all your body systems. You can put a few drops of a citrus oil in your water to help your body detox naturally, or put some immune boosting oils like oregano an On Guard in a vegetable capsule to help kick those germs. Taking oils internally is a great way to keep the sickness away.
