Essential Oils 101
What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds extracted and distilled from plants for health benefits. Essential Oils contain hundreds of different compounds, providing complex & versatile abilities to combat threats without building up resistance. They are natural, safe and effective, but they are also fun and can provide healthy empowered living.
My son would wake up screaming in the middle of the night. He would cry for an hour asking me to make it go away. Thanks to essential oils I finally have a natural solution to put my little guy back to sleep in less than 10 minutes! I could go on and on with the ways essential oils have enhanced our life, but first I want to teach you about what essential oils I use, what essential oils are and how we use them.
Once you understand the power of essential oils, you will be ready to make them part of your family’s wellness plan. As a Wellness Advocate, I’m here to help you do just that.
Why DoTerra Essential Oils?
DoTerra essential oils are sourced through their Co-Impact partnerships with growers around the world to protect agriculture traditions and to provide the most potent essential oils today. You can visit sourcetoyou.com to learn all about the DoTerra difference. While essential oils, supplements, natural care products are amazing, their humanitarian impact is what sets them apart.
Essential Oils are Natural
Throughout history, natural solutions have sustained health and wellness. Essential Oils come from plants and through the proper distillation process essential oils can aid, support and empower a healthy lifestyle.
Once an aromatic plant has been properly harvested, it is transported to a distillery where its oil is captured. Extracting essential oil is an extremely delicate process. If done improperly, distillation can dramatically alter or destroy a plant’s aromatic compounds. If distillation is completed with customized care, the resulting essential oil retains a strong chemical profile to provide therapeutic benefits to its users. – sourcetoyou.com
Essential oils have super-charged potency, 50-70 times more powerful than herbs. Just one drop of peppermint (8 cents) is equal to 28 cups of peppermint tea. It is that strong!
If you were here, I would put a drop in your hand and have you rub them together, cup them in front of your face and inhale. You would instantly feel your airways open and would barely be able to take a handful of breaths–it is that powerful and effective! Even crazier, oils are pennies per a drop making them an affordable part of your wellness plan.
LITERALLY! Most of our bottles are 15ml. These bottles contain 250+ drops. Let’s say you want to use 2 drops of Lavender Essential Oil. You only spent $0.16. PENNIES for EACH USE! http://
Essential Oils are Effective
Because essential oils contain hundreds of different compounds, providing complex and versatile abilities to combat threats without building up resistance.
We have all heard about the superbugs and antibiotic resistance and that is why people are turning back to the earth for solutions.
Oils work with the body to address issues and root causes on a cellular level. A cell has an oily membrane. Bacteria live outside of the cell and viruses live in the cell, duplicating themselves, making us sick and miserable!
If you go to the doctor with a virus, what does the doctor say? Rest, hydrate, wait it out. That is because man made medicines are primarily water-based making it difficult for the medication to penetrate the cell membrane. Essential oils pass through the cell membrane, making them very effective.
The entire OnGuard line is a favorite at our house.
Essential Oils are Safe
We have all experienced some form of essential oils. Synthetic chemical fragrances added to our soaps and shampoos. Essential oils in our food, like cooking extracts and flavorings. For therapeutic essential oils, the unregulated standards compromises quality and health benefits.
DoTerra created their own standard, CPTG- certified pure therapeutic grade. This means plants are harvested in their natural habitat. They are beyond organic, verified pure, free of fillers, pesticides & foreign contaminants. They go through stringent third party testing for every batch to ensure powerful benefits without harmful side-effects.
