What Are Essential Oils
Maybe you have been hearing the buzz about Essential Oils and thought to yourself, what are they? How will I know how to use them? What can I use them for? Do they really work? That’s where I step in, I’m here to help you on your Essential Oil journey.
If you have ever peeled an orange and smelled the wonderful spray from the peel, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, or cold pressed from the rind of fruit. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. Essential oils protect plants from predators, decay and are essentially the immune system of the plant. The oils have been used for thousands of years, but now with modern technology we can extract the natural defenses of the plant, put them in bottles and use them for our benefit.
Aren’t all Essential Oils the same? Nope. I don’t know about you but I only want to put the best, most tested and trusted oils on my kiddos. Before I used doTERRA I thought lavender was lavender. It never occurred to me that where the plant was grown or how pure the oil was played a role.
Something that shocked me was there is no governing body regulating Essential Oils. So this means you can hop on down to your local health food store and pick up a bottle of “100% Pure” Essential Oil and it could contain a small percentage of actual Essential Oil and the rest could be fillers or synthetic. doTERRA was created by a few super passionate people who wanted to make the world’s best essential oils and that’s exactly what they have done.
When you choose doTERRA, you are choosing essential oils gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy.
Each doTERRA essential oil is also carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol. They are free of chemicals, pesticides and heavy metals. So parents around the world can feel comfortable using these amazing oils with their family.
